CSA 003 : To Tell or Not to Tell Others About Your Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery


Should you tell others that you are going to have a cosmetic and plastic surgery?

To Tell or Not To Tell


In today’s episode of The Cosmetic Surgery Advisors Podcast, I am going to give you real advice on whether or not you should tell others in your office, friends, and family about your cosmetic surgery and plastic surgery procedure.

Why wouldn’t people tell about their cosmetic or plastic surgery procedure? In the past, people frowned upon the idea of having a cosmetic surgery procedure because of the fear of what will people say when someone finds out. But fast forward to today, and it is seen as a regular thing.

Having been in the industry since 1993, I have talked with many patients about their fears and frustrations. What I found out that women mostly fear the backlash for having cosmetic surgery or plastic surgery. A lot of concern comes from having a lack of expectancy for their decision.

For example, if you talk to a confident woman about her plastic surgery – she will be more thrilled and less worried about her surgery. She does not worry about what others think about her decision. Whereas if you talk to a nervous patient who is self-conscious and concerned about the backlash, she is not genuinely accepting and ready for cosmetic surgery.

In this episode, we will talk about where we how we should examine the question on whether to tell or not to know about your cosmetic and plastic surgery procedure.

To tell or not to know about your cosmetic and plastic surgery procedure?


Let’s take the scenario at work. By letting your coworkers and boss know about your cosmetic and plastic surgery could be a distraction. For example, if you have a breast augmentation, your company might respond to your information by saying that they need all hands on deck and your cosmetic surgery procedure can wait.

It is not necessary that you should be forced to share the information with your employer if you are having a breast reduction or rhinoplasty to help with breathing. 

“As a general rule, I recommend that patients don’t share that information with their employer.”

What about coworkers? If you choose not to share the information with your boss but the post before and after photos of your plastic surgery on social media, it is not the best thing to do. Your coworkers might become jealous, can use the information against you.


Your friends. Friends can be a good support system as a well as bad. You might have positive supporting friends or negative, not supportive and who can cause a lot of drama.

If you are having facelift surgery and you go back to work. Even if you look better or look well rested, most people are not going to come up to you and ask if you have had plastic surgery. Aforementioned is a personal decision whether or not you share the information with your coworkers. The best rule of thumb is to keep it under wraps, save it to your self unless necessary.


Your family, your spouse or people close to you. It is not a good idea to have surgery, and nobody knows that you are having surgery. If something were to go wrong in your operation, it is not a good idea for your spouse to find out that you had a liposuction because you are in the hospital.


Finally, it’s more important that you are stable in your decision and you can defend your choice if you have to. And that way if your spouse or family members do not support your conclusion you can move on with your plastic surgery. Make it a good experience by including your friends who are supportive of your decision. When it comes to tell or not to tell about your cosmetic or plastic surgery, it’s your decision.
