Not many people think of the beauty and fashion industry as having health benefits of keeping your skin clean, your posture straight, your breathing right, and more. In fact, many cosmetic procedures have more benefits to your overall health than you may realize. Instead of closing your mind to what society says about eyelid surgery, why not learn why it may help you see better? Take a look at the following procedures and the health benefits you can gain if you undergo one with a board certified plastic surgeon:
Benefits of breast reduction surgery
Some women have large breasts that don’t fit their body frame, causing neck, back, and shoulder pain. Undergoing a reduction can alleviate that pain and improve your posture and spine alignment. In addition, your breathing can be easier and you may be able to workout more easily than before. Having large breasts can also cause skin irritation underneath where friction occurs from excessive rubbing.
Benefits of breast augmentation
Contrary than you may think, enhancing the size and shape of your breasts can be beneficial to your health as well. Breast implants and fat transfer can correct tuberous breast deformity (TBD), a congenital abnormality where your breasts don’t develop normally. Additionally, your posture can be improved with breast augmentation if you have significant asymmetry.
How rhinoplasty (nose surgery) improves breathing
A nose job is more than a pretty adjustment to your face, it can actually help you breathe better. By fixing a deviated septum, your nasal function is improved and you get increased oxygen flow throughout your body. In addition, rhinoplasty can correct other structural problems that may restrict your breathing and cause congestion.
Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) can help you see better
Eyelid surgery happens to help many women by eliminating drooping upper lids and puffy bags under your eyes. However, if you undergo blepharoplasty, you can also benefit from improved eyesight as a result of any drooping skin being pulled away from in front of your eyes.
Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) helps prevent diabetes
Tummy tuck surgery helps you get rid of stubborn belly fat, but it can also reduce stress incontinence, your risk of diabetes, and remove excess skin stretched during pregnancy or left as a result of weight loss. Your back can also benefit from less pain as a result of abdominoplasty correcting rectus muscle position.
Liposuction can reduce excessive sweating
Not many people know that men can benefit from fat deposit reduction when they undergo liposuction of the breasts, reducing the size (gynecomastia). In addition, this procedure can reduce excessive sweating in the armpit area (axillary hyperhidrosis).
Combination (after dramatic weight loss)
If you’ve lost a lot of weight, congratulations! You’re already taking a step toward a healthier life. Plastic surgery can also help you further if you undergo an upper arm lift, lower body lift, thigh lift, or breast lift. Each of these procedures can contribute to reducing stress incontinence, your risk of diabetes, and excess skin leftover from your transformation. And just like abdominoplasty, you can experience less back pain from a correction of the rectus muscle position.
