Body image and cosmetic surgery is increasing in popularity in our western culture. A growing number of women are seeking surgical solutions to their body, and surprisingly these women include teenage girls. Some women will consider surgery especially after having children to restore their postpartum shape and others will do so to resolve physical issues that have been bothering them for a long time. If this is you, please ask yourself the following question:
Did you know that you could achieve this goal simply through taking the simple steps to educate yourself on how to dress your image and style? It will cost a lot less than a tummy tuck. Clothing has the ability to highlight your assets and camouflage other areas!
This can be achieved through healthy eating and exercise. We all should be feeding our bodies with good food and exercising anyway, so what’s the deal? I know beauty hurts, and pain is gain, but this is through physical exercise! Don’t go and actually cut yourself!
Often times desiring change goes deeper than just the surface. There are most likely underlying factors behind your feeling for change. This could be a variety of things like a low sense of self-expression, a need for relationship, or a career change. I would explore this feeling more deeply before going for the knife.
As an image consultant, I personally believe and know that you can achieve a high self-esteem and a positive body image without cosmetic surgery. I have seen countless women find solutions to challenges that they never thought existed.
If you feel you have exhausted your solutions and you have decided to take the knife, make sure you are not doing it to please someone else. You are the one that will have to live with the change. Even if it is as small as whitening your teeth, make sure you find the most affordable cosmetic dentists before you make the jump to getting your teeth done, because there are home made remedies!
I cannot say this enough ladies! Love yourself as you are! If this is a challenge for you, let me help you reclaim a positive body image or seek professional help and counseling.
