Ask yourself the tough questions. What am I doing this for? Will this nose job really save my marriage? etc. etc. Plastic surgery on the right person can have amazing effects on improving self esteem and revitalizing the way one feels about themselves.

These people are better off going for counseling and addressing their underlying issues.

The best resource to go to when one needs guidance about feeling and looking your best is your best friend or close family member. It is important that this person have your best interest in mind. This person will then be able to provide and objective assessment. Once the person has determined that there may be need or cosmetic improvement, then they should consult with a reputable facial plastic or plastic surgeon.
