Cosmetic surgery is well-known for its ability to completely transform the appearance. Over the years, a wide range of new techniques and procedures have been introduced, allowing surgeons to perform amazing procedures they could once only dream about.
These days, you can choose to look exactly how you want to. After paying £40,000 to completely transform into a ‘sexless alien’, American makeup artist Vinny Ohh, has become living proof of just how far cosmetic surgery can go.
Using cosmetic surgery to achieve your authentic ‘you’
After undergoing a staggering 110 procedures, Vinny Ohh now claims his extreme look is a mirror to how he feels inside. At 22 years of age, he claims he is neither female or male. So, in order to look more like the person he feels inside, he decided to go under the knife.
Despite already spending £40,000 on cosmetic procedures, Ohh plans on having further work performed to remove his belly button, genitals and nipples.
So, is this an example of cosmetic surgery going too far? There’s certainly a danger a patient can become addicted to surgery. What’s important, is to ensure if you are considering going under the knife, you’re doing so for the right reasons.
When used correctly, cosmetic procedures can really help patients to boost their confidence, enhance their looks and help them achieve their most authentic self. If you look different to how you feel inside, it can have a significant impact on self-esteem. While Vinny Ohh’s case is unique, it does highlight the connection between how you feel and how you look.
Using cosmetic surgery to enhance your life
All patients considering undergoing cosmetic surgery, should think carefully about their reasons for doing so. There are many factors which need to be considered including:
- Do you have realistic expectations?
- The cost
- Potential risks
It’s extremely important to realise that how you think the results will look may not necessarily be realistic. A good cosmetic surgeon will be able to tell you what can and cannot be achieved using the procedure you desire.
The cost is also obviously something to consider, along with the potential things that could go wrong. Overall, cosmetic surgery can improve your life, but only if it’s done for the right reasons and with realistic expectations.
