A Message from Dr Anh: Why Plastic Surgeons Are Not Solely to Blame for Body Image Issues

In a recent article written by the Australian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS), Dr Anh expresses that plastic surgeons are not solely responsible for body shaming issues.

This article was written in response to the media frenzy about the issue of Specialist Plastic Surgeons’ social media being responsible for body image anxiety.

In the words of Dr Anh, ” As Specialist Plastic Surgeon[s], we have a responsibility to be a part of the solution. I do believe that we already help so many patients find their self-worth, love themselves more, become less self-conscious and live their best lives. But we also need to make sure that we don’t set unrealistic, unattainable expectations for our patients, sexualise or trivialise what we do or make people feel worse about themselves so we can offer solutions to their problems.”
