When Can Plastic Surgery Benefit your Health?
Plastic surgery can make you look great—really great. The kind of great where you feel so confident that you can walk out on that beach in a little two-piece again, just like you used to.
But plastic surgery can do so much more.
If you’re the kind of person who is more concerned with being able to walk out onto that beach at all, then Los Angeles plastic surgery is for you too.
Sometimes, stress and genetics and all the other factors of our lives cause unwanted weight gain. Sometimes it occurs in unnatural areas that you just can’t seem to get rid of even though you exercise and eat healthy. Through all your hard work, that extra cellulose is still weighing you down, giving you joint and lower back pain and making it difficult to stay mobile.
Plastic surgery can alleviate the stress in your joints through liposuction, though it’s not a technique to overcome obesity. Plastic surgery cannot supplant the need for strong muscles—that you’ve got to do on your own.
The other major way plastic surgery can benefit your health that it can also improve your mental health and outlook. And sometimes, feeling normal can make all the difference along the path to becoming your normal self again.
Reconstruction rebuilds a woman’s breast shape with silicon implants and can take place immediately after the mastectomy or weeks later, once healing has already occurred.
On the other side of the coin, there are times when a woman’s breasts have experienced excessive development due to pregnancy or menopause. In this case, the shifting or unnatural weight placement could cause some women to experience lower back pain, which causes them difficulty during physical activity.
A breast reduction surgery may then be required.
Gynecomastia is the similar ailment for men. An abnormal development of the mammary glands causes something called “puffy nipples,” or the enlargement of the breast tissue. For men who suffer from gynecomastia, severe emotional distress can occur, just like women who need breast reduction or reconstruction surgery.
Plastic surgery can alleviate many mental and physical health problems, social anxiety to joint stress (as a plan B to diet and exercise). Talk with your health professional today and find out how plastic surgery can put you on the path to a happy lifestyle.
