Patients come to me for a variety of procedures yet they share a common desire and that's to feel better about themselves.
Stroudsburg, PA (PRWEB) September 10, 2005
Have you ever looked in the mirror and felt that what you see on the outside does not match how you feel on the inside? While it may seem to be a cruel twist of fate that your laugh lines become more pronounced each year and your breasts are not as perky as they used to be, 1800BeYourBest points out that it's never too late to roll back the hands of time. Yep, we're talking face lifts, breast lifts and other age-defying cosmetic procedures Â and if the notion of it makes your blush with embarrassment, then read on.
In years gone by, face lifts and other cosmetic procedures were considered to be the dirty little secret of the rich and famous. Accounts of celebrities quietly vanishing to "spas" for a couple weeks was oftentimes a euphemism for a face lift. It was the procedure that no one openly admitted to, explains 1800BeYourBest.
Face lifts have come a long way since then. Nowadays women (and men) are more comfortable and open about having a nip here or a tuck there. In fact, an eye-opening 82 percent of women and 79 percent of men claim they see no embarrassment if others knew they underwent plastic surgery.
And that's good news, remarks 1800BeYourBest. Research strongly supports improvements in one's psychological health as a result of improvements to body image through cosmetic procedures. Once considered a trivial practice, plastic surgery can unquestionably alleviate depression and significantly improve the quality of life.
"Patients come to me for a variety of procedures yet they share a common desire and that's to feel better about themselves." notes Mark P. Solomon, M.D., F.A.C.S. "I find it personally rewarding to see their transformation from the first time we sit down for a consultation through their post-op follow-up appointments. They glow with happiness and self-confidence. They are excited about their future. It's like they've been given a new lease on life."
Dr. Solomon is a member of a practice that is managed by 1800BeYourBest. 1800BeYourBest helps patients locate board-certified doctors in their area who specialize in the procedure they are interested in, makes arrangements for an initial consultation and even assists with financing.
Now do you see the correlation between face lifts and other procedures that can rejuvenate your body and uplift your spirits? Apparently, so do millions of other Americans. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons:
*** Nearly 12 million plastic surgery procedures were performed in 2004. That's a 24 percent increase from 2000.
*** 90 percent of plastic surgery patients are women. Don't count men out, however. Every Easy year more and more men are turning to plastic surgery for procedures that can sculpt their bodies and take decades off their appearance.
*** Face lift and eyelid surgery were among the most requested procedures in 2004 -- 347,000 patients in all.
"Procedures like face lifts are so much more than a cosmetic procedure. It's an emotional journey that can be hugely rewarding," concludes Dr. Solomon. Descriptions of commonly performed plastic surgery procedures as well as before and after photos can be viewed online at 1800BeYourBest.
