Self-Image and Breast Surgery
Do you have a low self-image that you feel may be improved by breast enhancement surgery?
Plastic surgeon Dr. David R. Broadway, Denver, Colorado area plastic surgeon, understands that self-image is more than the way you see yourself when you look in the mirror. It is also the way you think you appear to others.
What can a better self-image do for you?
Sometimes when a woman feels as though her physical features are somehow inadequate, she tends to exude those same self-doubting feelings so that everyone around her can sense it. With an improved self-image, you will see changes take place in your life such as:
- Feeling more self-assured and exuding more confidence in yourself in your work environment.
- Being comfortable with your appearance and being more open to mingling in social settings.
- Being more settled and content in your personal life and relationships.
It is important to think about how breast implants will make you feel and what changes in your life will occur as a result of your choice to undergo plastic surgery. During your consultation with your surgeon, it is also important that you discuss these feelings and hopes with him as well.
A good candidate
A good candidate for breast implants surgery, or any other type of plastic surgery procedure, must be honest with herself and her surgeon in determining why she wants to have the surgery.
- Why are you choosing to have a breast enhancement?
- What do you expect to gain from having this type of surgery?
- What are your goals once you have had your surgery?
A bad candidate
There are people who seek plastic surgery for all of the wrong reasons. Unfortunately, all of the surgery in the world will not improve your self-image and make you happy if you are doing it for any reason other than improving a trait or deformity that you are just unhappy with. Many factors in your life can contribute to your low self-image, but they are not reasons to undergo surgery of any kind. Some of the wrong reasons are:
- You are in some crisis in your life such as loss of a loved one, divorce and/or bankruptcy.
- You have unrealistic expectations of what the surgery will do for you.
- You have some form of mental illness that may impair sound judgment.
- You have some obsession with a minor defect that really does not warrant undergoing surgery to correct.
- You are just impossible to please and continue to go from one consultation to the next until you hear what you want to hear.
For the right patient, cosmetic surgery can bring about new beginnings, needed changes and a strong self-image. It is important to take ample time considering your surgery choices and communicate thoroughly with your surgeon.
