Healthy Benefits of Plastic Surgery – 4 Procedures That Aren’t Just for Looks

Plastic surgery is about more than improving your physical appearance. For example, feeling more confident in your looks can also enhance your mental well-being and self-esteem. Some of the solutions we offer at Dreyfuss Plastic Surgery deliver substantial wellness alongside cosmetic improvement. While many surgeries have aesthetic enhancement as their first goal, it’s impossible to overlook the emotional gains that come with loving your looks.

Several cosmetic procedures deliver tangible health benefits. Here are four you may find interesting.

1. Breast Reduction

For women with large, prominent breasts, being well-endowed is not always a blessing. Breast reduction provides increased comfort for women who struggle with oversized breasts and experience neck pain, shoulder pain, and back pain. Bra strap indentations, chafing, and migraines are secondary issues imposed by substantial breast volume. Patients undergoing breast reduction surgery gain an immediate and dramatic relief from these symptoms, which is life-changing for many women in Chicago.

2. Gynecomastia Surgery

Many men struggle with the embarrassment associated with having enlarged breasts – a condition medically known as gynecomastia. While some estimates suggest up to 60% of men deal with gynecomastia at some point in their lives, that commonality probably doesn’t make you feel more confident when you need to take your shirt off at the beach or in a changing room. To make matters worse, this excess skin and fat typically doesn’t respond well to diet and exercise. That’s why the dramatic results provided by a male breast reduction can be so transformative. This surgery can create a firmer, more masculine-looking chest contour, allowing you to confidently pursue your goals.

3. Eyelid Surgery

With age, the delicate skin around your eyes will become even thinner, which can cause droopy upper eyelids and prominent undereye bags. A significant degree of skin sagging can interfere with your peripheral vision, particularly in the upper and outer parts of your visual field. An eyelid lift can resolve these problems, while making your eyes look alert and younger.

4. Body Lift

If you’ve recently lost a dramatic amount of weight through a sensible diet and exercise plan or bariatric surgery, you may find yourself frustrated by the remaining loose skin that did not regain its elasticity after you achieved your target body weight. Lax, hanging skin folds can cause painful rubbing and friction that may lead to open sores and complications like chafing, rashes, and potential infections. A body lift after significant natural weight loss or bariatric surgery can resolve this discomfort, allow you to wear more flattering clothing, and improve your self-image.
