Is plastic surgery for me?
Are there any things I should remember before considering plastic surgery? Our London patients are not fully satisfied with the appearance of their bodies. Patients during the consultation with our doctors expect some kind of procedure that will enable their bodies to change. We offer procedures that can achieve just that, however it is important to know that shaping the figure with a planned diet, reducing the amount of kilos consumed together with physical exercise can give great results without any treatments. There are some changes that can only be corrected with plastic surgery.
Since ancient times humans are obsessed with features like, strenght, influence and appearance. In todays world as we grow up we are targeted and presented with messages that our worth is based on how we look. This can be damaging to our mental health, particularly to women, who are surrounded with unrealistic standards of beauty that are impossible to obtain for the vast majority. It is reasonable that many men and women turn to plastic surgery in an attempt to achieve the ‘perfect’ look.
It is normal for us to thrive in improving our appearance but as important is to consider all of your options before undergoing surgery. Surgery should always be a considered last, after trying other methods of achieving your desired look.
Keep your diet up to date and control your weight as this is the most important thing you can do for your appearance. Obesity is not good for health but your appearance is depreciating too. If you are carrying around excess weight, you will eventually change your posture, look older and more tired than you actually are. Removing a few pounds from your surgical backpack can make a big difference in how you look and how you feel.
In addition to your decision about keeping your diet healthy and weight control, you should also add getting regular exercises to the mix. Exercise not only helps you to develop discipline, lose weight, but it also helps to tone your body and give more mental and physical energy. This energy can be used to assess your plastic surgery needs during initial consultation with your doctor. Exercise can also improve the metabolism and production of collagen which is good for your skin helping you to look younger and more vibrant. Being happy with yourself is accepting yourself and this is done by knowing what you and your body is capable of.
Of course, as with any surgery, there are some risks involved. However, these are typically minor and can be easily managed by your surgeon. Overall, surgery is a safe and effective way to improve your appearance.
