Plastic surgery addiction

By: Meliyah Thornton

Why are people addicted to plastic surgery?

Plastic surgery can be extremely addictive; people get hooked on the rush or high of being beautiful or being just like popular celebrities, often at their own detriment.

What are the causes of plastic surgery?

Cosmetic surgery addiction can be caused by a condition called body dysmorphic disorder, wherein an individual is preoccupied with a slight or imagined "abnormality' in their appearance, which a person without the disorder might interpret as a quirk, individualistic, or perfectly acceptable. This obsession often causes significant social or occupational impairment, as well as emotional problems.

Is there a treatment for plastic surgery?

The only real cure for plastic surgery addiction is for people to realize that it is not the nose but the look in the eyes, not the appearance but the accomplishments, not the fake but the real that actually makes us all who we are.
