Are We Our Own Worst Critic?

Plastic Surgery

Sometimes we can be our own worst critics. Most people engage in occasionally comparing their looks and features to that of others – be they friends, family members, people on television, or even magazine models.

While some of this is just motivation for self-improvement, we can also be too hard on ourselves if we try to be perfectionists. The important message is to try and avoid becoming our own worst critic.

To keep from being overly self-critical the first step is to start to see things differently. By worrying less about the opinions of others, we can slowly empower ourselves to define our own realistic standards.

Once we have a realistic starting point, focused on our own desires we can then make our own achievable goals. Fortunately, with the development of new technologies and surgical expertise, we have increased control of what and how we can change. Depending on our starting point and end goal we can change to be better versions of ourselves through our lifestyle, exercise, and surgical or non-surgical interventions, or a combination thereof.

Common Surgical Procedures

Centric Health Surgical Centre offers many cosmetic surgical procedures that are commonly desired by patients to enhance their look and improve their confidence. A few of these common procedures include rhinoplasty, tummy tuck, and breast implants.

These surgeries address some of the most common areas that patients desire to improve: nose shape and size, stomach fat, and breasts that have lost their shape over time or following childbirth.

However, these relatively simple procedures completed at Centric Health Surgical Center in Toronto can assist you in shaping your body to better fit your desired image.

Mommy Makeover

Becoming a mom is one of the greatest joys in life, but some women find themselves struggling with their post-pregnancy body.

Having children can cause many bodily changes, particularly impacted are the stomach and breasts.

However, alongside diet and exercise, a surgical or non-surgical procedure can help patients get on their way to a full mommy makeover, addressing those impacted areas and helping them get closer to their pre-pregnancy body.

When considering if a mommy makeover is right for you, start by digging deep within and understanding just what it is you are looking to change. Why is it that you are looking to have surgery and what aspect of yourself do you want to change?

Does it affect your confidence?

There are events in life that can affect the way we look and in turn, the way we look at ourselves. It might be a personal or medical issue or an accident that occurred which altered our appearance. Ultimately, we find ourselves feeling like we need to improve to meet our goals and achieve our personal vision of our ideal self.

An ideal candidate for a cosmetic surgical procedure falls into two categories:

  1. Patients with a strong, confident self-image, but who are looking to refine a specific characteristic to achieve an ideal vision.
  2. Patients with low confidence who feel held back from being more confident by being self-conscious about some aspect of their appearance.

Options such as cosmetic surgery can produce changes in physical appearance and confidence. Finding productive solutions to improve confidence is a great move in the right direction. Choosing to make a change for the better helps you restore the confidence you had in yourself which can shed a positive light on all aspects of life from personal to professional.

Unfortunately, for many people, it is hard to ask for help and make the decision to pursue cosmetic surgery. Asking for help is not a sign of weakness, in fact, it is a sign of strength in pursuing what we want and making a choice to achieve it.

Something as simple as calling to book a free consultation with a cosmetic surgeon to discuss your options might be the first step in getting the answers you have been looking for.
