5 Reasons To Consider Cosmetic Surgery

5 Reasons To Consider Cosmetic Surgery

Cosmetic surgery is a medical specialty dedicated to enhancing your physical appearance. About 17.5 million cosmetic surgeries are performed each year in the United States, and procedures include everything from facelifts and nose jobs to tummy tucks and vaginal rejuvination.

Deciding to get cosmetic surgery is a highly personal choice. Some people have aspects of their appearance that bother them and hinder their confidence — and if that sounds familiar, cosmetic surgery could boost your confidence.

Walter D. Gracia, MD, PA, and our surgical team in Fort Worth, Texas, are proud to offer a comprehensive suite of cosmetic surgery procedures. We work with adults of all ages, and here are a few of the most common reasons that our patients seek cosmetic surgery:

1. Enhance your self-confidence

Almost everyone has something about their appearance that they don’t like. Maybe it’s a disproportionate nose. Maybe it’s sagging skin. Or maybe it’s something else entirely.

It doesn’t matter if you’re bothered by something large or small — if it affects your confidence, you deserve the option to fix it. Dr. Gracia and our team believe that when it’s done for the right reasons, cosmetic surgery has the power to enhance your look and improve your self-confidence.

2. Redefine your physique

Your body and your aesthetic goals are unique, and no two cosmetic surgeries are the same. If you’re interested in changing something about your appearance, Dr. Gracia takes the time to understand your needs and creates a cosmetic surgery plan for you.

Cosmetic surgery can address your facial features and your profile, but it doesn’t stop there. We also specialize in breast procedures, abdominoplasty, and buttock enhancements to reshape your body. Many people choose complementary procedures to dramatically transform their appearance and help them feel better in their own skin.

3. Achieve weight loss goals

While cosmetic surgery isn’t a weight loss solution on its own, it can help you achieve your weight loss goals when it’s part of a comprehensive lifestyle approach.

Eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly is the best way to achieve and maintain a healthy weight throughout life. But if you’ve ever tried losing weight, you know it’s not easy to shed fat in specific areas of your body.

Cosmetic procedures like liposuction and tummy tucks are popular, especially for people who have already achieved weight loss success. These procedures remove fat in targeted areas and tighten skin so you can enjoy the progress you worked so hard for.

4. Restore a more youthful appearance

One of the best-known types of cosmetic surgery is the facelift — and for good reason. There are lots of minimally invasive cosmetic procedures to fight the signs of aging, but these treatments can only do so much.

If you have significant lines, wrinkles, or other signs of aging, a facelift could give you a naturally youthful appearance. Your facelift may remove excess sagging skin around your eyes, cheeks, and jaw area to give you a gently lifted appearance.

5. Make life more comfortable

The main goal of cosmetic surgery is an aesthetic improvement, but did you know some procedures have functional benefits as well? A few of these are eyelid lifts, nose jobs, and breast reductions.

Eyelid lifts help you look more youthful and alert, but they can also remove excess skin that blocks your vision. Nose jobs can correct disproportionate noses, and also make breathing easier. For women with very large breasts, breast reduction can improve confidence and help eliminate back pain.

If you’ve ever considered cosmetic surgery, now is the time to find out if it’s a good option for you. Schedule an appointment to talk with Dr. Gracia about your goals, and we’ll work with you to help you make the best decision for your body.
