When plastic surgery is performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon,
it can do much more than improve one’s appearance; it can actually
lead to added health benefits, which improves the patient’s quality of life.
Breast reduction for example, can alleviate back and shoulder pain, improve posture and
the alignment of the spine, and eliminate the skin irritation that can
occur under the breasts due to constant friction. Let’s take a look
at the added health benefits associated with other plastic surgery procedures:
Liposuction: For men, this procedure can reduce male breasts, otherwise known as gynecomastia.
For male and female patients, it can reduce the excessive sweating that
occurs in the armpits.
Breast Augmentation: This procedure can improve posture, especially in patients whose breasts were not symmetrical
before the procedure. It can also correct a tuberous breast.
Rhinoplasty (nose surgery): This
procedure can increase oxygen flow, fix a deviated septum, and improve breathing.
Structurally, it can correct physical issues that lead to congestion.
Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery): This procedure can help improve eyesight by eliminating
droopy eyelids that impair a person’s vision.
Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck): This procedure has several health benefits. It can reduce the risk of Type
2 diabetes, it alleviates back and neck pain, it can reduce stress incontinence,
and it effectively removes
excess skin that was stretched out during pregnancy (for women).
Vaginal Plastic Surgery: Vaginal rejuvenation can reduce or eliminate discomfort and chafing caused by enlarged labia.
It can remove scar tissue caused by tearing during childbirth, and it
can tighten the vaginal walls that were loosened as a result of pregnancy.
Plastic Surgery After Dramatic Weight Loss: After a person goes through dramatic weight loss, they will be left with
excess, hanging skin. In these cases, the patient may decide to undergo
an upper arm lift, a lower body lift, a thigh lift, or a breast lift,
or any combination of the above. Plastic surgery after dramatic weight
loss has many benefits, including: it reduces the risk of Type 2 diabetes,
it can reduce stress incontinence, it alleviates back pain, and it removes
excess skin stretched out due to pregnancy (for women).
