September 10, 2018

When considering the benefits of plastic surgery, many people tend to focus on the aesthetic advantages of having a breast reduction, rhinoplasty, or other procedure. As we reviewed in our previous post, there are often other benefits associated with plastic surgery procedures that go beyond your appearance. Today, we will wrap up our discussion on the matter by reviewing a few more possible benefits of cosmetic surgery. If you are interested in learning more about the procedures we offer, or if you have questions about a specific procedure, then Boulder Valley Plastic Surgery is here for you. Call us today to schedule a free consultation.

Additional Possible Benefits of Plastic Surgery

Improved Oxygen Flow and Breathing

Did you know that nearly 3 million people are diagnosed with a deviated septum each year? This condition occurs when the thin wall of cartilage between your nostrils is bowed or otherwise displaced. Some people are born this way, and others may have developed the condition following an injury. In either case, a deviated septum can cause breathing problems, including congestion and restricted air flow. This can lead to poor sleep quality, low energy levels, and other health concerns.

Nasal strips, decongestants, and antihistamines can help improve oxygen flow and breathing, but they are temporary solutions. Rhinoplasty and septoplasty, on the other hand, provide a permanent solution. After having their deviated septum surgically corrected, many patients report sleeping and breathing better, as well as feeling better overall.


Improved Self-Esteem

For most individuals, there is an undeniable connection between physical appearance and self-esteem. When we look better, we tend to feel better. This is not to say that you should consider plastic surgery as a fix for low self-esteem. In fact, any reputable plastic surgeon will carefully consider the mental and emotional wellbeing of a patient before recommending a procedure. However, if you have certain areas of your body that you are unhappy with, it is reasonable to consider the psychological benefits that come along with correcting those concerns.

In addition to feeling better about themselves, many patients report an increased sense of self-confidence following their plastic surgery procedure. For example, if large breasts have prevented you from joining exercise classes in the past, a breast reduction can enable you to pursue those classes and other avenues of self-improvement that you avoided before. This may help you feel more confident in not only your appearance, but your abilities, as well.
