Positive benefits of plastic surgery
There are a growing number of people having plastic surgery and these procedures are more socially acceptable than ever before, and for good reason—research shows plastic surgery has positive benefits, including:
- Improved self-image and confidence. One study found that with realistic expectations, people who had plastic surgery got a boost of confidence following their procedures.
- Being happier. Another study found that patients who had cosmetic surgery were happier and more satisfied with their lives than those who considered plastic surgery but opted out.
- Improved quality of life. Research also shows that when you look good and feel good, you are more likely to engage in activities, have a better social life and live a healthier lifestyle.
Minimizing the signs that you've had work done
- More natural results. With popular plastic surgeries such as facelifts and brow lifts, our plastic surgeons avoid that over-tightened, artificial look of facelifts of the past, and instead reposition the soft tissues to provide a more natural rejuvenation.
- Camouflage makeup. With guidance from our skincare specialist, camouflage makeup can help minimize post-surgical bruises and redness. This gentle makeup contains beneficial minerals and antioxidants, does not interfere with surgical healing and offers SPF protection important for postoperative skin.
- Go cosmetic. Noninvasive or less invasive procedures such as peels and injectables offer less noticeable results than plastic surgery and may be a better option if you're worried about people knowing you had something done.
