How Plastic Surgery Can Boost Your Confidence and Improve Your Well-Being

Did you know plastic surgery could significantly alter your confidence?


A recent study looked at this correlation. The study was conducted by psychologists at The University of Basel in Switzerland and Ruhr-University Bochum in Germany and examined how individuals who elected to undergo plastic surgery to “feel better about [and] in one’s own body” ended up feeling after their procedures.

The results were overwhelming: Positive psychological effects were common among nearly all the study’s participants. Results included improved body image, quality of life, and self-esteem.

It’s important to note here that it is true: “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder” and “True beauty lies within.”

At the same time, however, it must also be said that each individual will naturally feel either positively or negatively about their appearance. And their appearance is what the world sees. We cannot deny that the appearance of others somewhat impacts how we perceive them. Improving our appearance and improve our well-being.

If you want to change your appearance, therefore — perhaps something small like teeth whitening, dying grey hair, mole removal, or another minor plastic surgery Calgary has to offer — you can. And most of time, you actually will feel better about yourself and improve your self-image and confidence.

Moles are raised clusters of cells that grow on the surface of the skin. They may be dark or tan in colour or the colour of your natural skin tone. Often, moles can grow to several centimeters in diameter and may detract from an individual’s confidence. Although benign (non-cancerous) moles will not harm you, they can be a source of embarrassment that when removed, can relieve discomfort and self-consciousness and produce a more confident vision of the self.

Removal of moles can be done in small, straightforward procedure. Options include either removing the mole with a scalpel or burning the mole down so that it becomes flat and flush against the rest of the skin.

Most teens and some adults experience acne, which can leave behind unsightly scars. Often, these scars last for years. Fortunately, there are minor non-surgical procedures that can remove these scars with lasers and give you a fresher, smoother-looking complexion.

As we get older, wrinkles and fine lines may cause us to feel self-conscious about our appearance. Unfortunately, they only get worse over time. Wrinkle reduction is an easy and straightforward solution. Medicines applied topically or with simple injections can relax muscles and improve crow’s feet wrinkles, forehead wrinkles, frown lines, and more.
