As the number of cosmetic surgery procedures increases exponentially, so does candor about them. What was considered an almost scandalous act of vanity only a decade ago is now met with much more acceptance, and consequently, much more honesty.
“When a patient asks me what they should say, I tell them that surgery is a very private part of their life. They don’t have to say anything,” Joe DeLozier, MD, a Nashville plastic surgeon, recently told The Tennessean. “But the trend has been that it is much more accepted and much more discussed.”
DeLozier says more and more patients are willing to admit they’ve gotten surgery or injectable treatments, and he thinks TV shows-reality and fiction-have played a big part in that outspokenness by making cosmetic procedures more mainstream.
“It’s taken the taboo and dishonesty away,” he said.
