Can Plastic Surgery Improve Your Health? Part I

Published on August 30, 2018 by

Cosmetic surgery undoubtedly provides patients with a more youthful appearance and smoother contours. However, aside from aesthetic enhancements, there are several other reasons why you may consider a consultation with a local surgeon. At Boulder Valley Plastic Surgery, we are here to help you reveal your true inner beauty. If you are interested in a breast reduction or another type of procedure, then we are happy to provide you with all of the information you need to make an informed decision about your care, including reviewing the health risks and benefits related to your surgery.

In part one of this two-part series, we will review a couple of the possible health benefits that can accompany two common procedures, and how you can obtain the information you need to determine whether or not plastic surgery is right for you. After you’ve read today’s post, call our office to book your free consultation with Dr. Swail.

Possible Benefits of Plastic Surgery

Improved Vision

If you have loose, sagging skin around your eyes, you may consider it just to be another bothersome sign of aging. Sagging eyelids not only give you a more aged appearance, but they can also make you look tired, angry, and unapproachable. Beyond appearances, however, loose eyelid tissue can hang so low that it begins to impede the ability to see clearly. This can be very problematic, as you can imagine, for a wide variety of everyday tasks. Thankfully, there is a solution that can provide you with unobstructed vision for the first time in years.

Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is designed to provide aesthetic benefits as well as physical benefits. This procedure not only makes eyes look more open and youthful, but it also removes excess fat, skin, and muscle from the upper eyelids, potentially improving your vision in the process.

Improved Posture

A properly aligned spine is important for your overall health and wellbeing. In fact, poor posture can lead to a lot of health problems, such as headaches, sleep problems, neck and back pain, and fatigue. From heredity and muscle imbalances to body weight and repetitive motion, many things can cause poor posture. Breasts that are too large for a woman’s body frame can also cause slouching, overcompensation, and other posture conditions that can lead to neck and lower back pain. Although many women believe they have no choice but to deal with the body they were born with, there is a solution.

Breast reduction surgery is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures for women. Like many other surgeries, this procedure provides aesthetic benefits as well as overall health benefits. In addition to enjoying the contours provided by a more proportional breast size and shape, many women find that their neck and back pain is reduced significantly following a breast reduction procedure.
