When you think about undergoing a plastic surgery procedure, you’re probably only thinking about the physical outcome of your surgery. A breast augmentation will give you fuller breasts with less sagging, while a rhinoplasty may straighten a crooked nose or remove a bump. But what you may not consider is the positive effect that procedure might have on the rest of your life!
Self-esteem and plastic surgery go hand-in-hand. When you improve your appearance, you feel better about yourself. This renewed self-esteem can help give you the confidence to do everything from wearing something you never thought you’d wear to trying new things you may never have tried prior to surgery. From taking a cruise to giving a big presentation or applying for a dream job, when you feel good about yourself, it’s easier to feel like your goals are attainable, too.
Believe it or not, you can improve your overall health with the help of plastic surgery. Breast reduction surgery can help ease neck, back and shoulder pain. Rhinoplasty can help correct breathing and congestion problems, which helps reduce snoring and give you a more restful sleep. Skin removal surgery following extreme weight loss can make physical activity more comfortable as well as decrease the occurrence of rashes and skin irritation. Blepharoplasty, or an eyelid lift, can help improve your peripheral vision, making everyday activities like driving or riding a bicycle safer.
If you are suffering from depression due to severe unhappiness with your appearance, plastic surgery can help improve your mood and state of well-being. This new positive outlook can reverberate through other areas of your life, helping you be more upbeat.
Bariatric surgery is not the only way to surgically lose weight. Skin removal surgery following bariatric surgery or other weight loss can help shed the remainder of excess pounds. Furthermore, surgeries like abdominoplasty and breast reduction surgery can remove excess skin, enabling you to lead a more active lifestyle without the pain of excess skin or tissue slowing you down. Liposuction may not remove a lot of pounds, but it can encourage you to be more active and make certain exercises easier, too. And removing fat from the abdomen improves your heart health and lowers your risk of heart attack!
Whether you are repairing scar tissue, removing cancerous lesions or simply tightening sagging skin on the face, plastic surgery can help give your skin an overall healthier look and feel. When your skin is healthier, you are more likely to keep up that good health by protecting your skin from UV damage to extend the life of your procedure and prevent future damage.
Many of the improvements you’ll see with plastic surgery procedures can actually extend your life. Reduced inflammation means a lower risk of heart disease. Being more physically active means lower blood pressure and a stronger heart, which can translate to a reduced risk of diabetes, heart disease, heart attack and even some cancers. Better breathing means fewer complications due to asthma and fewer sinus infections. Lower body fat can also reduce risk of cancer, diabetes, heart disease, inflammation and even stroke. Improved peripheral vision means safer driving and reduced risk of accidents on foot, too.
