Read Transcript

Plastic surgery can definitely become addicted, and it only takes one look at some of the reality show on TV now to confirm this. So it's the job of a plastic surgeon and really of the patient as well to make sure that, if somebody is plastic surgery addicted, that they don't let this addiction cause them problems.

There are a lot of signs that can tell you if you are going down the road of having to much plastic surgery, if you are addicted to plastic surgery. Plastic surgery is something that we consider an elective procedure. Something you don't have to do, but you do because you want to, when you feel like its going to improve the quality of your life.

However, if you spent way too much money on plastic surgery, if you mortgage your house for it, if you go in significant debt, if you've had so much worked on that you have multiple complications, then that's a sign for you that maybe you should hold off on getting more work done.

Maybe you should save the money, maybe you should save your body and consider that if possible that you could be addicted to it.
