A recent study suggests that the number of cosmetic procedures opted for, have risen to about 44 percent in the last few years. The study goes on to say that people who undergo such procedures may experience a morale and confidence boost but may also go through certain repercussions later, especially if they’re unhappy with how the surgery went. So why would you want to go through something that might not potentially give you any secure results?
Dr Jaishree Sharad, a dermatologist placed in Mumbai, says, “If the surgery goes wrong, you have to go under the knife again to correct it. That could lead to more disfigurements. Secondly, there is a chance of scarring and it could change the way you look, not necessarily for the better.”
