5 Elective Procedures that can make you feel amazing on your wedding day!
You already know that your guy loves you just the way that you are. But do you love yourself the way you are? Women who love themselves through and through emit a natural glow, which attracts all types of people to them. If you find that you are obsessing over a few physical imperfections, undergoing an elective procedure or two may be just the thing to get your self esteem – or your man – back to the good old days. This article will tell you about five elective procedures that should remind your partner about the reasons that he fell in love with you in the first place.
Are you starting to get a turkey neck? The turkey neck phenomenon inevitably happens to a lot of us as we age, but this does not have to be the case if we are proactive. Also known as a cervicoplasty, a neck lift can do wonders for the appearance of your neck and jaw line. In 2013, 28,000 men and women underwent cervicoplasties, so this popular procedure is not going to abate any time soon. Depending on your neck’s appearance, you may not even need to be under the knife for hours on end. Some people with a less severe appearance could get by with a Botox injection that reduces the look of fullness on the neck. However, you need to consult with a plastic surgeon to discuss all of your surgical options.
2) Tummy Tuck
Don’t like the way your body looks in a bikini? A tummy tuck could be just the answer. Plastic surgeons perform over 100,000 tummy tucks every year. The procedure will take anywhere between two to five hours, depending on the amount of work that needs to be done. The surgeon will make an incision from one hipbone to another, and another around your navel. Your surgeon will then separate the skin from your abdominal wall, the vertical muscles of the abdominal wall will be tightened, after which extra fat and skin is removed. You may be released after several hours or several days, depending on the severity of the procedure. You should be completely recovered after several weeks.
Who doesn’t want to look a little younger? Anything from smiling, laughing, and even chewing can cause your beautiful face to wrinkle. If you want those laugh lines to go bye-bye, consider getting Botox injections. Botox is a non-surgical injection that can significantly reduce the appearance of crow’s feet, furrows on the forehead, frown lines and skin bands on the neck. At an average price of less than $400, Botox procedures will not break the bank for most working people. However, note that this cost does not include fees for the operating room, anesthesia, and other related costs.
4) Body Contouring
Did you recently lose a lot of weight? If you did, you may have to deal with a lot of sagging skin. One solution you might want to consider is body contouring. Body contouring gets rid of excess fat and skin while tightening your body’s support tissue. Some body contouring procedures you can get include a breast lift, tummy tuck, face lift, thigh and arm lifts, and lower body lifts (abdomen, outer thighs, groin, buttocks). While an overall body contouring procedure can cost upwards of $30,000, you can offset costs by only paying for the areas that need the most improvement.
5) Lasik Surgery
Dorothy Parker famously said that guys did not make passes at girls who wear glasses. If you are tired of those frames, LASIK surgery could be a great option for both enhancing your vision and improving your appearance. During a LASIK procedure, the cornea is reshaped so that any light that travels through it becomes focused on the retina, allowing for corrected sight. Not only do 96 percent of those undergoing the procedure get their desired level of vision back, their vision is corrected no later than the day after surgery.
Let’s face it; when you look good, you feel good. While an elective procedure here and there can be just the thing to spruce up your appearance, you do not want to go overboard with them. You are beautiful just the way you are! Any guy who does not realize that is not worth your time.
