Bloomfield Hills, MI – Considering cosmetic surgery, but still on the fence? If so, you’re probably wondering if the prep, procedure and recovery time are worth it.
If any of this sounds familiar, what you’re about to learn might surprise you.
As it turns out, not only can cosmetic surgery alter your appearance – such as the shape of your nose or size of your waist – going “under the knife” can also improve your quality of life.
“I had the [breast augmentation] surgery three weeks ago, and each day I am happier and happier with my results!” said a recent patient of Dr. M. Azhar Ali, one of Michigan’s top plastic surgeons and owner of AMAE Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Center.
She added, “I look natural, I get compliments from all my friends, and I feel more confident than ever!”
Dr. Ali stresses that as long as the patient doesn’t have unrealistic expectations, there are five major areas where a person’s life can become immeasurably better by opting for one or more procedures.
“I call it becoming a better person from the outside in,” added Dr. Ali.
Here are the five ways your life can be enhanced from the outside in by opting for one or more cosmetic procedures.
A Sunnier Disposition
A recent European study confirmed that patients who undergo plastic surgery report a boost in self-confidence and overall enjoyment of life.
The study followed 550 patients during and post-procedure and came to the conclusion that the majority of patients, “felt healthier, were less anxious, had developed more self-esteem and found their operated body feature in particular, but also their body as a whole, more attractive,” researchers said.
So if you’re in the doldrums at the moment, and one or more body parts are contributing to your lack of confidence, one or more cosmetic procedures could put that much-needed smile back on your face.
A Healthier Body
You may be wondering how plastic surgery can help your body become healthier. In addition to improved self-esteem, which has innumerable effects on health, there are other facts that might surprise you.
If you have large breasts that prevent you from exercising, for example, a breast reduction would improve your tolerance to exercise, leading to less discomfort and a healthier heart.
A rhinoplasty to repair your deviated septum would lead to improved oxygen flow, more efficient breathing, deeper sleep (and a lot less snoring).
These are just some of the effects that can be had by opting for certain cosmetic procedures. You’ll look better, feel better and you might just live longer.
A Boost Up the Career Ladder
We always hear of celebrities altering their appearance to land juicy roles. It turns out, many non-celebrities are doing the same thing, and enjoying the same types of benefits.
According to the American Academy of Facial Plastic Surgery and Reconstructive Surgery, a major faction of people who request plastic surgery report doing so because they want to remain competitive on the job.
In addition to higher education and living a healthy lifestyle, the way you look can get you hired or secure you that much-deserved raise.
Is going under the knife the only way to get ahead? Absolutely not, but it can give you a leg up on the competition if you ever find yourself head to head with another professional.
All things being even, if you look better and feel better about yourself, which cosmetic surgery can contribute to, you are more likely to get the job or promotion.
So if you find yourself struggling to find work or stagnant in your current position, one or more plastic surgery operations could help you find the success you crave.
Dr. Bryan Mendelson, former President of the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, says that we are hard-wired to appreciate beauty. And that attractive people, among other things, experience better personal lives.
For one, your relationships could improve. If you or your partner have one or more body parts that prevent you from being intimate, a cosmetic procedure could bring you two closer together.
You might also have an easier time making friends.
Dr. Mandelson cites a study that showed how good looking people are more likely to be labeled as being “good” and trustworthy, and they are simply treated better than those who aren’t as attractive.
Of course, it could be the increase in self-esteem that helps you make better friends and enhances your other personal – even romantic – relationships, but there’s no denying that attractive people are more magnetic.
It’s not all about looks. A personality still goes a long way, but why not get that boost in social status that comes from looking better, if doing so is only a single procedure away?
New Lease on Life
Getting one or more plastic surgery procedures makes you more motivated to improve your life.
“My patients jump out of bed in the morning. They look forward to their days, to meeting new people. There is an obvious change between who they were and who they are now, and it’s a beautiful thing,” said Dr. Ali.
The fact is, cosmetic surgery is a growing movement. Analysts predict that more plastic surgeries will be performed in 2016 than any other year. To put that into perspective, Americans spent $12 billion on cosmetic procedures in 2014, the most recorded since 2008, as seen in the graph below.
With improved confidence, health, professional and social lives, and a whole new outlook, it’s no wonder why so many opt for cosmetic surgery.
