Ever heard of the word “Plastic Surgery Advertising”? You know when you go looking for pictures and suddenly an ad pops up on your screen on either a website or a social media platform with before and after photos of plastic surgery. Well, that’s plastic surgery advertising. Although plastic or cosmetic surgery is recommended not to be done, still sadly in a lot of countries such as South Korea it is considered as a trend and people gift their daughter’s cosmetic surgeries as soon as they go to college.
This is now becoming a popular trend not just in Asia specific countries, but also in western countries such as the USA. It is told to improve your overall appearance especially when you are facing bullying or are facing hatred against your appearance. The advertisers play with your mind and your emotions especially when you are going under trauma or sadness regarding your appearance. They make you feel good about yourself if you go for such procedures but keep in mind that not every kind of surgery is right for you.
The term Plastic Surgery
Before we could look any further in plastic surgery advertising, it is very important to know what it is. Plastic surgery is a method of changing your overall appearance by reconstructing or repairing your body parts whether in terms of facing any kind of accident or for cosmetic purposes.
In plastic surgery, sculpting and reshaping occur in terms of which body part you want to repair or reshape. Like for example, there are people with pigmentation disorder or a face full of ache and scar marks. They want to go for reshaping or repairing any damages, therefore, they go for plastic surgeons.
There are even times when most of the people go for plastic surgeons when they do not like their appearance. Like for example, in South Korea, many people do not have eyelids at all and want to go for plastic surgery for double eyelids as the double eyelid is a trend there. Those people are considered God gifted who have double eyelids in South Korea.
Plastic Surgery Advertising
Plastic surgery advertising is the promotion of plastic surgeries by showing before and after photos or videos to the public through many marketing channels such as newspapers, magazines, social media, websites, the internet, etc.
There are many good sides as well as bad sides of plastic surgery advertising. The good side is, people, get awareness regarding any treatment they would like to go for without worrying to be stuck with defeats caused by any sort of accidents such as the broken nose, etc. The bad side is when the ads cross their limits such as they try to show you dreams that are quite unrealistic such as; you will be young again. Now that’s just not possible as the aging process never stops. This is where we should take precautionary measures to avoid any fraud.
