answering questions about plastic surgeryWhen you see an attractive person, it’s natural to be curious about how they achieve their good looks. Were they blessed with amazing genes, or do they have the expertise of a great plastic surgeon?

If you’ve had cosmetic surgery, you may look more beautiful than ever. When others notice your confidence and beauty, they may be looking for ways to get those same results for themselves. Then, the inevitable question pops up: “Have you had work done?”

This can be an awkward question, especially if you don’t know the person well. But depending on your own personality and preferences, you can answer these types of questions openly, or simply blow them off.

Deciding not to tell

Just because you’ve had plastic surgery doesn’t mean you need to tell everyone about it. Perhaps you were unsatisfied with a disproportionate figure and got breast implants, or maybe you worked hard at the gym to achieve a beautiful figure and needed liposuction to remove stubborn areas of fat once and for all.

Whatever your reason, you may not want to tell people about your procedures. This is your right, your choice, and your personal business. The reality is, it’s a deeply personal question and while some are fine with answering it, others feel uncomfortable.

Perhaps one of the best responses can be to recognize the question as a compliment. After all, they’re probably asking because they want to look as great as you do. A response such as, “I’ll take that as a compliment! Thank you!” may suffice while you walk away or change the subject.

Sharing the information

On the other hand, some people are eager to tell others about their amazing plastic surgery experience. They may want to recommend their plastic surgeon, or wish to tell people how happy and confident they feel about their appearance. After all, the stigma of plastic surgery is all but nonexistent today. Celebrities, models, and everyday people proudly admit to having plastic surgery.

If this sounds like you, take the opportunity to share as much or as little as you wish. Something as simple as, “Yes, and I feel so much more confident now. I highly recommend my surgeon,” or “Thanks for noticing. If you’d like to hear about my experience, I’d be happy to tell you about it sometime.”

Try not to be offended if you’re questioned about having plastic surgery. Chances are, if they’re asking, it’s because your results are so natural that no one can tell for sure. And, they may want to call your surgeon and book an appointment ASAP!
