Some people dismiss those who have had plastic surgery as being merely vain about their looks, however the benefits of plastic surgery go way beyond restoring a youthful appearance.

The benefits of plastic surgery really started to be felt around World War I. The wounds suffered by soldiers were so disfiguring that they really couldn’t be seen in public. Though plastic surgery was primitive back then, it at least gave these young men the ability to have some manner of social life and the self-esteem that came with it. Our clients at Plastic Surgery Specialists rarely have such grievous wounds, but a lot of them are unsatisfied with their looks and have been so for a very long time. Some were teased as children for a too-large nose or ears that stuck out. Women with overly large breasts can actually suffer physical pain from them, and they can even affect the curvature of the spine. Women with small breasts or noticeably asymmetric breasts may feel unfeminine and self-conscious. Men with any type of breasts can be embarrassed by them. These obstacles can effect a patient’s social life or even romantic life.

Even now it is surprising to learn how many health benefits what seems like straight cosmetic surgery can bestow. Breast reduction eases the discomfort of breasts that are too big and heavy for a woman’s frame.

Patients who have had bariatric surgery often have folds of excess skin. Removing this through procedures such as panniculectomy and belt lipectomy prevents rashes and infections and gives the patient a new freedom of movement and enhanced self-esteem. Eyelids can droop so much that they interfere with vision, but a plastic surgery known as blepharoplasty can correct this. There are so many benefits of plastic surgery that many people don’t know about.

Their mental health is certainly enhanced, resulting in feelings of confidence, comfort and ultimately joy. Indeed, some say their only regret about getting plastic surgery was that they didn’t get it sooner!
