There seems to be a never-ending barrage of stories erupting within the entertainment news circuit about celebrities undergoing possible plastic surgery procedures. One day, mainstream media is obsessing over Kylie Jenner’s fuller lips; the next, they’re infatuated with Renee Zellweger’s new face.

Celebrities are under constant scrutiny to look a certain way and it can be difficult to make changes when under the public’s microscope. Regardless, it’s important to consider plastic surgery as a way to refine, not re-define. Additionally, going to a trusted practice with highly qualified surgeons, like Dr. Ali Mosharrafa and Dr. Tamir Mosharrafa at Mosharrafa Plastic Surgery, can be the difference between leaving the surgery center looking like Megan Fox and Jocelyn Wildenstein.

As we discussed earlier, plastic surgery should be a means for aesthetic refinement. Some of the most shocking celebrity plastic surgery stories stem from the celebrity in question doing too much at one time (think, Heidi Montag of MTV’s The Hills, who infamously underwent 10 plastic surgery procedures in one day!). Not only can that fuel significant emotional and psychological damage, but it could also cause serious health problems.

Montag eventually revealed to news outlets that she regretted receiving the large number of plastic surgery procedures and actually suffered from major health issues like pinched nerves, ruptured discs in the spine, numbness in the arms and more.

In addition to starting slow and going to a surgeon you can trust, it’s important to understand that plastic surgeons are trained professionals with extensive backgrounds in aesthetic refinement. You may think you need every procedure under the sun, but you’d be surprised what a few nonsurgical procedures mixed with one or two surgical ones could to do help you achieve a desired look.

The surgeons at Mosharrafa Plastic Surgery take the time to listen to your concerns, assess your features and develop recommended procedure(s). The last thing you want from a plastic surgeon is a frozen face or a botched body because what you thought you wanted turned out to be the exact opposite.

Lastly, when considering plastic surgery, make sure you’re 100 percent on board with the idea before jumping ship. Remember that emotional damage we talked about earlier? According to a study published in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, 37 studies on patients psychological and psychosocial functioning before and after plastic surgery was mixed with some participants having a history of depression experiencing anxiety, social isolation and self-destructive behaviors.

Of course, there’s more good news than bad! A similar study reported 87 percent of patients undergoing a procedure were incredibly satisfied with the results and experienced improvements in their overall body image and self-esteem.

In the end, doing your research, going to a highly qualified surgeon, trusting their expertise and doing a little at a time can produce optimal results.

Back to Overview

A breast cancer diagnosis is overwhelming in so many ways. There are a lot of emotions. Dr. Ali Mosharrafa and his entire staff put me at ease at every step. After surgery, I was very self conscious, and the way I was treated with each visit helped me as much as the excellent medical care. Whether it is for an elective procedure or a surgery due to illness, I cannot endorse Dr. Ali more as a physician and human.
