People venture out for plastic surgery for a multitude of reasons. One of the biggest is self-esteem and how they feel personally. There is nothing like a little boost to your way of life and Self Confidence by a certain plastic surgery treatment you might have been curious about.
If you’re considering going under the knife, you may be happy to know that new research actually reveals that cosmetic surgery does boost self confidence.
While Ponce De Leon may not have ever found the Fountain of Youth, Lebanon-born Plastic Surgeon Dr. Hussein Hashim says that one of the keys to feeling young again is the psychological benefits that accompany certain cosmetic procedures.
A recent study conducted by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery found that certain plastic surgery treatments can really help build up a person’s personal well-being.
Plastic and cosmetic surgery is there to help you feel that little bit better about yourself, you’re potentially trying to fix something that you don’t like about yourself.
Another study conducted by the Center for Human Appearance at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine found that 87 per cent of patients felt satisfied following cosmetic surgery, with the added benefits of improvements in their overall body image and with the part of their body that was transformed. These women also felt less negative about their body image in both work and social situations.
During a particularly poor economy, Dr. Hussein Hashim went on to say that this increased confidence could prolong the time a person works, especially when retirement is becoming a less realistic option.
“Another important point worth mentioning is that modern technology has drastically reduced the number of complications arising from traditional forms of some of the most popular procedures,” Dr. Hussein Hashim noted.
Face-lift surgeries, in which deep facial tissues are tightened and the skin is re-draped over the face, are generally recognized as being some of the safer plastic surgery options.
With over eighteen years of experience as a aesthetic plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Hussein Hashim approaches cosmetic surgery with a scientific eye and an artistic sensibility which strives for perfection and transcendent beauty.
“Beauty is hard to define but it is instantly recognizable,” he surmised. “A plastic surgeon works from within; changing the framework and re-draping the surface mantle to create beauty.”
However, Dr. Hussein Hashim warned that those who have unrealistic expectations or underlying psychological issues unrelated to their appearance, may experience poor outcomes and dissatisfaction.
“Plastic surgery helps you feel better about yourself. It may also change the way people respond to you in a social setting. it doesn’t transform you into someone else,” he noted.
