To become a plastic surgeon is my ultimate goal. I researched, asked my doctors and discovered that I wanted to be in a field where I was always busy, could develop my own schedule, serve others, and have a welcoming business. Becoming a plastic surgeon will allow me to be my true self and show what I value. One thing I treasure is appreciating people for who they are. From personal experience I’ve found that people who don’t feel as beautiful on the outside don’t end up being themselves and that takes away from them as a whole. Whenever I encounter a person like this, I point out what I do find beautiful about them. Therefore, I think I have the qualities to be a motivational plastic surgeon.
However, being a plastic surgeon offers more than the small things I wanted to be able to do. For example, I want to allow people the chance to have and look how they want. I want to know I could give someone the confidence they’re lacking. I can change the world in that way by helping the people in it. I can help them grow and become more. I want to be able to give back to my community because I find that very important. I want to know that my patient’s smiling face is because he or she feels great and aren’t faking it. I don’t believe necessarily that surgery can or will bring happiness, but I do believe that the change my patients will encounter may allow them to become renewed. Sometimes change is a good thing and I could help them with it. I would eventually like to open my own practice, so I can do what I’d like. I would like to create a raffle once a year for a child, adult, and elderly to win a free surgery. Someone or yourself would write an essay as to why they need it, and then I’d choose the one I think is best. I would be able to help people who can’t afford surgery and need it for whatever their reason may be. Also, I would hire a psychologist and have a monthly meeting for the people who wanted to talk to other people who have, or are considering surgery. This is the reason why I believe I should open my own practice.
