Boosting Your Self Esteem In Time For The Beach

Posted on April 6, 2013 | by

With the warmer weather in Spring and Summer just around the corner, it’s easy to start seeing the less than desirable features gained over the Winter months. Personal appearance can be a major factor on your self esteem.

Aside from difference plastic surgery can provide for your physical features, there are also a number of psychological benefits to undergoing cosmetic procedures.

Research Shows Plastic Surgery Leads to Higher Self Esteem

A recent study, published in Clinical Psychology Science, reports that people who undergo plastic surgery have a higher self esteem and are less anxious than people who have opted not to have plastic surgery.

This boost in self esteem could be one of the reasons there were more than 10 million cosmetic procedures performed in the United States last year, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.

Give Your Self Esteem A Spring Makeover

With limited time before the beach weather comes, there are a number of ways to boost your self esteem without spending hours in the gym.

Surgical procedures like a face lift or eyelid surgery can provide great results for a more youthful facial appearance. Less invasive procedures, such as injectable treatments like Botox or dermal fillers like Juvéderm, can help with the crows feet and other lines that develop around the face and eyes as one ages.

If you’re concerned about the safety of a procedure like cosmetic injections, there isn’t much to be worried about. According to new study reported in JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery, injectable fillers used for facial volume rarely lead to any major complications.

Other procedures like liposuction are a great way to reduce the appearance of trouble spots around your stomach, thighs and love handles.
