We all have things we don’t like about ourselves, but it doesn’t have to be that way. We live in a world where we don’t have to live with our imperfections. From quick and simple procedures, such as Botox, dermal fillers, or facials to more radical changes, such as liposuction, breast reduction, or rhinoplasty, changing your appearance can give you an almost instant boost of self-confidence so that you can uncover the true you.
Before you make any drastic (or even subtle) changes to your appearance, you need to be comfortable with who you are. Stop comparing yourself to others and leave self-doubt and negative self-talk behind. Remember, the only person you must compete with is yourself, and you’re the only person you have to impress.
Once you reach “a certain age,” your face starts to show the tale of time. Although you may feel like a teenager on the inside, the wrinkles around your eyes and on your forehead tell a different story. While your skin will never be the same as it was the day you graduated high school, injectables can help, which is why we offer a full line of treatments – including Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin – that will help you maintain your natural beauty.
Something else to consider, especially if you’ve started to see the dreaded droop of your cheeks, is adding a bit of volume back to your face. The FDA has approved several dermal fillers for just this purpose, including the Juvéderm family of fillers, the Restylane family of fillers, Radiesse, and Sculptra.
If you’ve lived with imperfections your entire life but you’re ready to see a new face staring back at you, then you might want to consider plastic surgery. Rhinoplasty is a great example. This is a well-established surgical procedure that can change the shape, proportion, and size of your nose, which is one of your most prominent facial features.
For a less invasive refresher, get a facial, which removes dirt, reduces stress, and evens out your skin tone. There are many different types of facial, and your plastic surgeon or aesthetician can discuss your options with you.
Body and Breasts
All bodies are beautiful, but if you have an ideal image in your head and can’t achieve it through diet and exercise, don’t despair. Liposuction is a great option for adults who are within 30% of their ideal weight, are overall healthy, and have a positive outlook.
If your concern revolves around the size of your chest, then you might consider breast reduction surgery. This can eliminate weight, which might help reduce back pain and shoulder pain. What’s more, when you have smaller, firmer breasts, you’ll feel more confident in everything you wear as your clothes will fit better and you won’t have to buy larger sizes that might sag in other places.
Ultimately, self-confidence comes from within. You must give yourself a confidence mindset from the beginning before you make any outward changes. However, once you are comfortable with who you are, there is nothing wrong with making tweaks to your appearance that help you look and feel your very best. You don’t have to do anything invasive, but you have plenty of options, no matter your complaint.
