How do Selfies make you feel?
With the spread of photo-editing technology through applications like Snapchat and Facetune, the level of physical “perfection” previously seen only on celebrity or beauty magazines is now all over social media. As these images become the norm, people’s perceptions of beauty worldwide are changing, and this can take a toll on a person’s self-esteem.
Although we are aware of how ‘filtered’ someone’s photo can be on social media sites, it’s hard to rationalize as first impressions last. We are all guilty of feeling envious of how people seem to travel so much and stay in fantastic hotels, as seen on peoples’ online profiles, however when we begin to examine more closely, people often post photos again and again, and their holiday snaps are from years ago. However, our initial impression is ‘their life is so much better than mine!’
Often depression can be in-line with one’s own ego and self-worth, and at that point, if the only way is to change the way you look to help make you better about yourself, then we all agree that that will be beneficial to that person. Self-Esteem is probably the most valuable of all of the health benefits to be derived from Cosmetic Surgery. How the patient feels about himself/herself and how they see themselves adding value to their world greatly improves when they feel better about how they look. They will tend to get out more, engage more, do better at work and often improve their lifestyle and well-being.
An overall healthier lifestyle is often the result of Plastic Surgery. When a patient has spent the money, gone through the recovery time, and sees the end result they often develop a mindset and action plan to retain those positive results. An improved diet and a regular exercise program is often the case with the patient living a healthier, happier and more satisfying lifestyle.
Here are a few benefits of Cosmetic Surgery:
Reducing the size of the breasts can have a dramatic impact on a woman’s posture and almost always results in relief from neck, shoulder and back pain.
Breast Reduction can also improve a woman’s tolerance for exercise, enabling her to take advantage of exercise regimens she was unable to participate in previously
A ‘Nose Job’ can include repairs to the patient’s deviated septum, thereby enabling better oxygen flow, easier breathing and a better night’s sleep for the patient and the patient’s spouse as this procedure usually drastically reduces snoring. In some cases, as odd as it seems, a nose job may improve eyesight as the patient is able to wear spectacles more comfortably, especially for Asian patients.
Any kind of fat loss or fat reduction decreases the risk of diabetes, heart conditions and a host of other maladies.
Liposuction and Tummy Tucks (and to a lesser degree, Breast Reduction) removes fat cells from the body. Less fat cells means there are less fatty acids being released into the body. Since fatty acids impair the body’s ability to break down insulin, less of them is good and means a reduced risk of diabetes.
A new analysis published in the B.J.S. (British Journal of Surgery) indicates that weight loss surgery may affect an individual’s risk of developing cancer.
This same fat removal can also improve the patient’s blood pressure and cholesterol, thereby reducing their risk of heart conditions.
Patients who underwent surgery had a 77% decreased risk of developing hormone-related cancer (breast, endometrial or prostate cancer) when compared with patients who did not have surgery.
Gastric bypass resulted in the largest risk reduction (84%) for hormone-related cancer but was associated with a greater than twofold increased risk of colorectal cancer.
Additional studies are needed to understand the biological mechanisms behind these findings.
It is important to note here the Liposuction, Tummy Tucks and Breast Reduction are not intended to remove large amounts of fat but rather to target stubborn areas. However, any fat loss will help as described above.
In addition to restoring the pre-pregnancy shape of the abdomen, abdominoplasty (‘tummy tuck’) surgery with muscle repair can improve back pain and urinary incontinence after childbearing, studies reveal.
Although abdominoplasty is classified as a cosmetic procedure, it also improves two of the most common physical complaints experienced by women after labor and delivery. According to the new research “Abdominoplasty has a proven functional benefit as well as a cosmetic benefit,” comments lead author D. Alastair Taylor, FRACS, of The CAPS Clinic in Deakin, Australia.
Abdominoplasty Improves Common Post-Childbearing Symptoms
The study included 214 women undergoing abdominoplasty with repair of the abdominal muscles at nine Australian plastic surgery centers. Many women seek tummy tuck surgery to restore the shape and appearance of the abdomen after childbearing. The women’s average age was about 42 years, with an average of 2.5 deliveries.
Before and after surgery, the women completed questionnaires rating their disability from back pain and urinary incontinence: two very common problems after childbearing. In the preoperative questionnaires, about 51 percent of women had moderate to severe disability from back pain, while urinary incontinence was a “significant concern” for 42.5 percent.
By reducing the problems of back pain and incontinence, abdominoplasty with rectus repair leads to a better life for women after childbearing, experts believe that health insurance plans should recognise that abdominoplasty has functional benefits, beyond the cosmetic improvement offered.
The results demonstrate that tummy tucks do have functional benefits, as well as cosmetic ones, particularly in the postpartum population as seen on the Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery website. “If you are done having children, and still suffering from back pain or incontinence, you may consider an abdominoplasty as a surgical solution.”
