Three Minor Cosmetic Procedures That Could Improve Your Self-Image

Whenever discussing the possibility of cosmetic surgery, it is important to remember that the most important thing is how you view yourself. If you feel perfectly comfortable in your own skin, then you should never feel  pressured into changing your body by people you know or by a supposed ideal body image the media portrays. On the other hand, if you feel uncomfortable about an easily fixable part of your body, then it is absolutely fine to want to make a positive change for your self-confidence. This is your body, and only you will know whether having a cosmetic procedure done is the right step for you. If you do decide that you want to get some work done, here are three minor surgeries that could instantly help improve your self-image. 

1. Blepharoplasty 

Blepharoplasty surgery aims to reduce the sagging skin in the upper eyelid area. Lots of people struggle with minor areas of their bodies and can become unhealthily obsessed with them, so if that is you with your eyelid area, then this surgery could be for you. Once you have made this decision, you should first consult your regular doctor to see what they think, and, once given the go ahead, you should look for a reputable cosmetic surgeon. Some might not offer this procedure due to its complexity and the fact that it is still relatively unknown within the public conscious, but once you find the right one, you are good to go. Make sure they know exactly how much you feel should be changed and that you are both on the same page before surgery.

2. Otoplasty

Otoplasty is more of a general term referring to surgery for ears, but in this instance refers to surgery for pinning the ears back. Many people are subconscious about how far their ears stick out, and it can cause a great deal of personal anxiety. The procedure itself is relatively simple and only takes about an hour but it can still end up costing you thousands of dollars, so remember to factor in your financial situation when making these decisions. 

3. Laser Stretch Mark Removal

A non-invasive way to change a part of your body that many people struggle with, laser stretch mark removal is a newer technology that has helped thousands of people with body issues. While many creams and lotions have had small effects on stretch marks, there are few treatments other than this procedure that have such large and long-lasting changes. Again, consult your healthcare professional before undertaking any serious cosmetic procedures and see if they can put you in touch with a reputable clinic. 

About Me
Losing weight but not being trim

I always thought that once I lost all of my extra weight I'd be able to proudly wear a bikini. However, I didn't factor in the extra skin, and now I've lost 58kgs but still look terrible in a bikini. All of the extra skin on my abdomen, legs and arms makes me look like I'm melting in the sun. It's a reminder of how far I've come, but I'm ready to shed my old skin and become the babe I've been planning to be. This blog is about the reality of skin removal after extreme weight loss. I hope it's useful wherever you are on your journey.
