Enhance your Looks: Enhance your Self-Confidence
Everyone wants to look their best. If that means cosmetic surgery then why not do it? There are tangible benefits to enhancing your looks and that includes increasing your self-confidence.
It all Begins with You
The key to your self-esteem lies within you. Why do you feel the way that you do about yourself in the first place? Self-confidence is about liking who you are and what you look like despite what others think of you. It is not the mark of a dependent personality but one that looks for ways to make themselves look and feel better for themselves.
If you are thinking about making cosmetic changes to your looks, it might help to visit a plastic surgeon to discuss your needs. Cosmetic surgeons donít just look at your body criteria to determine if you are a good candidate for a procedure. They also investigate your psychological profile. Those with unrealistic expectations as well as disconcerting views of themselves send up red flags to the doctor that this enhancement is about more than just self-confidence.
Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD) is a form of mental illness that centers on how you view yourself. These are the people who are never satisfied with their appearance even after several cosmetic surgical procedures. Flaws that they notice in themselves may be both minor and unnoticeable or imagined altogether.
The flaws cause distress that can interrupt the flow of daily life. It wonít be just one procedure but many and the satisfaction still isnít there.
People who believe that cosmetic intervention will solve every problem they have or make them ìperfect,î are not seeking to enhance their self-esteem but to change who they are entire. This is beyond the scope of surgical intervention.
The Benefits of Enhancing your Looks
On the other hand, plastic surgery can and has shown to lead to growing satisfaction with self. Something that they felt was holding them back (asymmetrical breasts, small breasts, pucker of skin over the lower abdomen, large nose) has been sculpted and reshaped to bring about a more desirable outcome. The resulting change in habits and happiness are then a result of feeling better about how you look. Because your body looks the best it can, self-confidence is projected.
Increased confidence in sexuality is also a benefit of enhancing your looks. Women particularly feel more feminine and attractive when their body felt desirable to them. That may mean larger breasts, a flatter stomach or no turkey wattle under the chin.
Having realistic expectations also can enhance your looks. The object of plastic surgery is to enhance your well-being with a fresher look. That is totally individual. No one else can look like you and you canít resemble them either. It is as much about self-acceptance as anything else.
