This article is not written to persuade or dissuade anyone from getting plastic surgery.
Whether you want a chin augmentation, loose skin surgery, breast plastic surgery, a thigh lift, or you’re just thinking about what your rhinoplasty cost will be, consider reading the book “Psycho-Cybernetics” by Maxwell Maltz first.
Because… Beauty and success is something it would benefit you to prepare for. If and when you do get the nose surgery you have been looking for, and you look completely different, will you be prepared for it?
Maxwell Maltz was a plastic surgeon who studied why some people who became more beautiful overnight through plastic surgery did not become happier or confident. Some did become happier and more confident, but others became more depressed. And he decided to study this phenomenon and write a book about it.
You’ve probably heard it before.
- “Money can’t buy happiness.”
- “Beautiful people have sad eyes.”
- “You’ll just want to get more fixed.”
As I mentioned, this article is not written to preach about the philosophy of happiness or that being happy is more important than being more attractive because being more attractive can impact your self-esteem and maybe even career or family.
But the fact remains that some people who become beautiful do not “grow into” their beauty (at least not right away). Maybe because they did not prepare for it.
“Psycho-Cybernetics” does a great job of helping readers of all types manage their self-esteem. But it is especially relevant to anyone who is considering or has undergone plastic surgery.
Pretend for a second you are unconcerned about the plastic surgery costs, and you already know who the best plastic surgeons are. Step into the future of how beautiful you imagine you will be.
If you are the humble type that just wants to “fix something that always bothered you… How prepared are you for more attention? Or how prepared are you to accept that you are suddenly at least “perceived” as better (not that you believe you are better, only that people start to treat you “differently”) by others? Or maybe you do not feel as if you deserve what it is you thought you wanted: more beauty.
Or what happens if you believe that you are uglier? Not because of a bad surgery, but because you have not worked on your confidence enough?
Those are some real dilemmas people can end up facing according to “Psycho-Cybernetics” by Maxwell Maltz.
There is a psychology behind self-esteem, identity, and how your perspective changes when you enter a new phase of life.
If you want to live among the stars (it is ok to admit that you want to be beautiful and famous, there is nothing wrong with that) and be highly successful (and eventually well-known), there is some preparation you might have to do. If you want to receive fame and recognition for your beauty, or just be seen as more beautiful one day be sure to read “Psycho-Cybernetics.”
It will help you prepare yourself.
And if you already did your jawline surgery or thigh lift and look fantastic, and are unsure why you still feel “incomplete”, “Psycho-Cybernetics” might be able to help you find some answers, or at least provide you with some exercises to work on.
For most people, beauty doesn’t just suddenly happen. And some people have time to adapt to their changes which can happen over many years. Therefore, it might be a good idea to prepare beforehand.
Even if you want to live a regular life and not be called on to be on the pages of a beauty or fitness magazine, you could still get some value out of Maxwell Maltz’s book to help you become the best version of yourself (and truly believe it).
Maltz does a great job of applying his knowledge as a doctor in a way that could help and benefit a lot of people.
