The New You Awaits
Plastic Surgery is typically done to improve one’s appearance, which is also perceived as the primary benefit to the procedure. However, improving appearance is just one of many possible Plastic Surgery benefits. If you have been considering a Plastic Surgery procedure, check out a few of the advantages you might stand to gain from your decision.
When you look good, you feel good. Achieving a beautiful appearance naturally translates to increased self-confidence for many people. This means a greater willingness to try new things or open up in social situations. You may also be willing to wear certain types of clothing or participate in activities you tended to avoid before your surgery, due to your discomfort with your appearance.
Improved Physical Health
Some Plastic Surgery procedures can improve your physical health as well as your looks. For example, rhinoplasty or nose reshaping surgery may improve breathing at the same time it improves the aesthetics of the nose. Breast reduction surgery improves the body contour, but it may also relieve physical discomforts like neck and back pain and skin irritation from disproportionately large breasts. Some, as cited in this Readers Digest article, may even be covered by your health insurance.
Enhanced Emotional Well-Being
Mental health benefits can be gained from Plastic Surgery procedures as well. Some people see a reduction in social anxiety after their surgery, due to the new feelings of self-confidence their new look inspires. It is not unusual to feel greater control over your life when you feel you have a more youthful look. As a result, you may become more willing to take on new challenges or take charge of your life in a whole new way.
Open Up to More Opportunities
Some studies suggest that people who are more attractive or look more youthful may enjoy more professional and personal opportunities. A 2012 study published in Applied Financial Economics found that attractive real estate agents were able to sell properties at a higher price than agents who were not perceived as attractive. Other studies have also found attractive, younger looking people tend to make higher salaries and get selected for promotions more often.
Keep the Extra Weight Off
Patients seeking body contouring, such as liposuction or a tummy tuck, may find it is easier to keep the weight down after their Plastic Surgery. The positive results of the procedure may motivate the person to maintain a healthy diet and exercise program to keep their weight in check. A healthy weight can also lead to a healthier body and reduced risk for some types of diseases.
