When you first consider having a cosmetic surgery, such as a facelift or a rhinoplasty, your initial thought may be that you are having it done to improve your beauty or to look younger. While these are definitely major benefits that almost all patients see, you can actually expect to have even more benefits than this. Here are three of the greatest but most unexpected benefits that our patients have seen following recovery.
Cosmetic surgery provides more than a new youthfulness to your face. Many procedures can actually improve the symmetry of facial features and can balance facial proportions to be more beautiful. For example, there should be certain measurements between your eyes, nose, and mouth based on your ethnicity. A cosmetic surgery can help to balance your face and make you more beautiful throughout your entire face even if you only had only one treatment performed.
One of the strangest but most powerful benefits that many individuals experience after cosmetic surgery is the tendency to want to take better care of their bodies overall. After putting that much money into a procedure and feeling great about your looks, you may want to stop unhealthy habits that are prematurely aging you. Many patients give up smoking or drinking to improve their skin health and begin eating more healthfully following surgery.
Even more surprisingly, you may discover some amazing social benefits post-surgery. Studies have shown that people who are seen as being more beautiful often find it easier to get job promotions or have an edge over their coworkers because they are perceived as having more knowledge. Plus, because more beautiful people are typically seen as being more likable, you may find that your social life becomes easier and more vibrant.
