Plastic surgery has soared in popularity over the past decade. In some places, it’s considered as regular as getting a haircut, but with global pollution on the rise, you need to think twice before doing it.
Everyone can probably find a part of their face of body that might benefit from some plastic surgery. This process is much less taboo than it was before and in some cases, it’s a pretty regular thing to do. With obesity on the rise, procedures like tummy tucks have grown in popularity too. In our quest for perfection however, we could be harming the most important thing we have – our health.
Today’s environment is not as pure as it was before. Pollution, in its various forms, is at an all-time high, meaning it’s harder than ever to source pure materials to put into our bodies. The result has been an increase in post plastic surgery problems, such as infections or skin irritation.
The fact is that plastic surgery clients are becoming more allergic to the materials used in the process. Latex gloves are an issue for one, with more patients have a reaction to these. Antibiotics cause allergies too or don’t work as well as they should as we are more immune to them. The problem is that the materials used in plastic surgery, at the end of the day, need to be manufactured from raw materials in countries where we don’t have a lot of control over the production process. Pollution creates more impurities in the materials and cheaply produced products harm us in the long term.
The upshot is that plastic surgery is not something you should take lightly. If you want to go down this road, think carefully and do your homework, or you could be wishing you never considered it.
