Being comfortable in your body is important to your happiness and well-being. Feeling self-conscious about your looks is understandable, but it can reduce your quality of life if you find yourself fixating on the things you don't like about your appearance. Fortunately, you can sculpt your body with the help of modern medicine. Here are four ways plastic surgery can help you get the body you've always wanted:
1. Breast Augmentation
You may have turned to dieting and exercising to lose weight and get a lean, toned body. Unfortunately, breast size is genetically determined, and there's not a lot you can do to change it on your own. If you have small breasts that you're unhappy with, a breast augmentation can help you feel more confident. With the help of your plastic surgeon, you can choose between silicone or saline breast implants. Breast augmentation is a safe and effective way to increase the size of your bust.
2. Breast Reduction
On the other hand, some women are born with breasts they feel are too large. Having breasts that are too large for your frame can cause back pain, make it hard to shop for clothing, and contribute to a disproportional appearance. If you'd like smaller breasts, a breast reduction can help you achieve that goal. Your plastic surgeon will work with you to determine your ideal post operative size, and they can perform a breast lift simultaneously to give your breasts a better appearance.
3. Tummy Tuck
After having a baby, many women are left with stretch marks and loose skin on their stomachs. This can make you look heavier than you are, since the loose skin won't go away even after weight loss. A tummy tuck can give you back your pre-baby body. A skilled plastic surgeon will remove the excess skin from your abdomen, pulling the remaining skin taut. You'll be left with a beautiful, flat stomach that will look great on the beach this summer.
Liposuction is a great option for people who are unsatisfied with their weight loss efforts. Your genetics determine the areas of your body that naturally put on fat, and unfortunately, it isn't possible to spot-reduce fat from desired areas. However, liposuction does give you that ability. A plastic surgeon will make a small incision and use a thin hose to suction fat from your problem areas, leaving you with a smoother and more lithe silhouette.
