Lady Gaga Says Cosmetic Surgery Only Promotes Insecurities

Many Lady Gaga fans and critics have speculated that she star has had a nose job, breast implants and other plastic surgery procedures to enhance her looks. However, Lady Gaga continues to tell the press and fans that she is completely against plastic surgery and has never had any work done to achieve her unique features. Gaga recently interviewed with Harper’s Bazaar magazine and stated that stars who do have plastic surgery are only promoting their insecurities.

The interview appears in the October issue of Harper’s Bazaar and captures Gaga’s complete disdain for fellow artists who do choose to get some type of plastic surgery to improve their figures. She says, “I think that promoting insecurity in the form of plastic surgery is infinitely more harmful than an artistic expression related to body modification.” She refers primarily to musicians, actresses and models who have had plastic surgery just to grace the covers of a magazine or new album.

If you’ve been thinking about plastic surgery or some type of cosmetic enhancement, set up a consultation with a plastic surgeon in your area to find out if you would be a good candidate for a procedure. Some surgeons will request a mental health evaluation to make sure that they are having surgery for the right reasons. Even though these procedures are designed to enhance one’s appearance, they should not be the only way to boost an individual’s self-esteem. It’s also important to have realistic expectations about the outcome of the procedure. Looking at plastic surgery before and after photos can help you set some realistic expectations about this procedure.

Gaga, 25, says that she doesn’t feel pressured in any way to look like the Hollywood ideal and was even recently photographed wearing five prosthetic breasts for a photoshoot. She states, “I have the ability and the free will to choose the way the world will envision me.” She makes her point clearly and believes that the emotional toll that any type of body modifications take outweigh the effects of any physical enhancements. People who are simply insecure with their looks are the ones who are most likely to get an “extreme makeover” or pursue some type of plastic surgery.

Look at some of these plastic surgery before and after photos to see examples of successful outcomes with various types of plastic surgery procedures on patients like you. Talk to a plastic surgeon in your area if you’ve been considering plastic surgery, and to make sure you are pursuing the procedure for the right reasons.
