Cosmetic surgery is much more than a means to enhance or improve your appearance, it is a tool to alleviate physical discomfort and body insecurities that can simultaneously improve the quality of your life and how you feel about yourself. Addressing any concerns you may have about your body is both completely valid and nothing to be ashamed of – thousands of people around the world undergo cosmetic procedures to improve their quality of life and self image. As you move through life, so does your body, and aside from changes that naturally occur as you age, major life events like pregnancy and weight loss can significantly alter how you look and feel. Loving yourself can be as simple as taking a relaxing bath, adopting a diet or workout routine or taking the first step in preparation for undergoing cosmetic surgery. Whatever your concerns are, cosmetic or otherwise, know that self-are efforts are valid and an important part of keeping yourself healthy and happy.

Continue reading for self-care tips and to learn how cosmetic surgery can be a transformative experience with the potential to boost confidence, alleviate insecurities and bring a little self-love into your life.

Change Your Mindset

Being happy with the way that you look should be completely reliant on you – not others. If you’re unhappy with how you look, ask yourself why. Undergoing surgery is not an easy feat and often results in a physically (and emotionally) taxing recovery, and cosmetic procedures are no exception. If you elect to move forward with a cosmetic procedure, whether it be minor o r more comprehensive, be sure that the only person in your mind’s eye is yourself, and know that we’ll be with you every step of the way.

Pamper Yourself

Incorporate habits and routines into your daily routine that bring a smile to your face. This doesn’t have to be as extensive as starting a new skincare routine, and can be as simple as swapping your bathroom soap for a savory scrub or spicing up your makeup or hygiene routine with new products. However, pampering yourself isn’t always physical. Find new ways to enrich your life – pick up a new paperback or book of brain teasers, or adventure outside of your comfort zone and fill your days with new experiences. The possibilities are nearly endless, and there’s no better time than right now.

Embrace Changes

Oftentimes, we are our own worst enemy and toughest critic. Show yourself more compassion and less criticism, and know that the journey that you’ve had and the experiences you have gone through make you who you are. Major life events like weight loss and pregnancy inevitably lead to changes that you may not like or be accustomed to, but try to recognize the positive impact those changes have had on your life and congratulate yourself on what you’ve accomplished. If your efforts don’t get you 100% where you want to be, congratulate yourself on whatever level of improvement you’ve been able to achieve.

Consider Cosmetic Surgery

Our experiences make us who we are, and our bodies are often proof of that. For many, cosmetic surgery is a tool to regain confidence. For others, cosmetic surgery is the last stop at the end of a journey. Whatever your reason is for pursuing cosmetic surgery, don’t demean or dismiss it as anything other than what it is: valid. Cosmetic procedures can be a means of enhancing both your physical appearance and self image, and often pave the way to reclaiming your sense of identity, especially after major life events.

Weight loss and pregnancy, for example, can result in significant changes to the mind and body, resulting in a distorted sense of self and physical changes such as excess skin or diastasis recti – abdominal separation common during birth/after pregnancy. Procedures like tummy tucks, liposuction and breast lifts/reconstruction are well-known forms of reconstructive surgery that can help restore your confidence both inside and out, and we’ve seen the good they can do for a patient firsthand. Beyond improving our self-image, these “cosmetic” procedures can also alleviate very real physical discomfort and should be seen more as reconstructive than elective.

Making the choice to undergo cosmetic surgery is a deeply personal decision, one that should always be met with compassion and understanding. If you opt for cosmetic surgery and take your first stride towards self love, consider layering on our private nursing services and allow us to take the hardships out of recovery and give you more time to meet the new you with comprehensive, quality care by our team of experienced nurses.
