Have you always hated that hump in your nose? Are your wrinkles just a little too obvious? Or, maybe it is that extra skin you still have lingering after losing weight. Well, that is where options like cosmetic surgery and non-surgical treatment come in.
Whether it is a tummy tuck, a face lift, a nose job, a breast augmentation, or a soft non-surgical face lift with fillers and botox or another innovative procedure, you probably know someone that has had at least one cosmetic or aesthetic procedure done at some point.
Since neither Health Canada nor Statistics Canada keeps track of the number of procedures on the cosmetic front, it can be hard to track just how many people are having procedures done, but the revenue those procedures generate does not lie. Based on dollar value, the most common procedures include: Liposuction, Breast augmentation, Injectables, including collagen and Botox and Non-surgical facelifts.
So, it is no mystery that as people continue to focus on improving their physical appearance, cosmetic surgery continues to grow in popularity. Both men and women have begun taking advantage of this advancement in modern medicine. However, while you might think of cosmetic surgery as only an improvement for self-esteem, it can also play a vital role in recovery from an accident or other life scenarios.
Can plastic surgery improve emotional well-being?
Regardless of who you are, there has probably always been one thing you wished you could change about your appearance. For many, cosmetic surgery and aesthetic procedures have provided a great opportunity to improve physical appearance or address an area of the body, which can improve self-esteem and confidence. This is seen among celebrities that continuously change or maintain their body image using cosmetic surgery and aesthetic procedures. A poor self-image can negatively affect self-esteem and emotional well-being, therefore, a natural and effective change in appearance may also positively change life outlook. When you feel more comfortable in your own skin, you may feel an improvement in your self-esteem, confidence and emotional well-being.
Reconstructive surgery after an accident
Unfortunately, sometimes life happens. You get a scar that does not seem to go away, a deformity from a weekend warrior activity, or, you are out working in the yard and a tool hits you, causing damage. While you feel lucky to survive the accident, you might not like the altered look it has left you with. Cosmetic reconstructive surgery may help you get back to looking more like yourself to help erase reminders of the accident and improve your confidence.
After weight loss surgery
Our Lap-Band, Gastric Sleeve, and Mini Gastric Bypass procedures are a great way for patients to achieve and maintain significant weight loss, however, your final image goal may require more assistance. While regular exercise and a healthier lifestyle have a great impact on the body’s response following weight loss surgery, the vision you had may not be what reality leaves you with. Our qualified Cosmetic Surgeons may be able to help you create a plan to safely and cost effectively achieve your image goal.
Financing your cosmetic procedure
Once you have decided that cosmetic surgery is for you, the next thing that probably comes to mind is the cost. Should you require assistance, there are several finance options available to fit your current financial situation. It goes without saying that healthcare is not an area where going with the cheapest option is advisable – sometimes too good to be true is exactly that! Media stories have documented unqualified, uncertified, unregulated businesses offering services, however, despite the possible hazards, some people continue to take health risks to save on costs. Always research physicians first and choose a trustworthy physician and facility, one with positive reviews and most importantly, certified doctors and nurses. Here at Centric Health, we are confident in our medical professionals, our outstanding customer service and we are happy to provide details on the financing options available.
