Can cosmetic surgery help your self-confidence?
Based on Anna Raurell’s extensive experience, the answer is a resounding yes, for most patients who have realistic expectations of their results.
Many of Anna’s patients seek cosmetic surgery because they feel self-conscious about certain aspects of their face or body.
You can expect benefits like:
- Self worth
- Self esteem
- Quality of life
- Positive body image
Patients come to Anna with various concerns such as loose skin, small or uneven breasts, or excess belly and hip fat. These perceived imperfections can significantly impact their self-esteem. While the decision to undergo cosmetic surgery is deeply personal, Anna has witnessed remarkable transformations in her patient’s self-confidence.
After undergoing cosmetic surgery, many patients share their inspiring stories of newfound self-confidence. Addressing their specific concerns has empowered them to feel more comfortable and confident in their own skin.
As a cosmetic surgeon, witnessing the positive impact of cosmetic surgery on self-confidence is an incredibly rewarding experience. If you are considering cosmetic surgery to address your unique concerns, know that the journey towards enhanced self-confidence is within your reach with Anna.
Some patients who seek out cosmetic surgery have body dysmorphic disorder (BDD or body dysmorphia). Body dysmorphic disorder is a mental health condition where a person spends a lot of time worrying about flaws in their appearance. They may continue to feel this way even after they have surgery and continue to seek out different surgeries. Body dysmorphic disorder can be treated with therapy and medications and therefore cosmetic surgery is not advisable.
This is why it is important to understand that you must undergo cosmetic surgery for the right reasons. People who have unrealistic expectations of their results are usually the most dissatisfied with their results. Body dysmorphic disorder sufferers should not be permanently refused cosmetic surgery, but a plastic surgeon has an ethical duty to ensure their patient is making the decision for the best reasons, and should always provide patients with alternative treatments if they feel body dysmorphic disorder is affecting their judgement.
