Each of us has a self-image or a perception of how we believe we look to others. Confidence is one of the basic foundations of our wellbeing and if you are happy with your self-image, your confidence will make you more effective and comfortable in your career, social situations, and personal relationships. On the other hand, if you are self-conscious about some aspect of your appearance, this lack of confidence will spill over into many areas of your life. Dr. Brent Moelleken M.D., F.A.C.S., helps restore confidence in your appearance through a variety of cosmetic surgical procedures designed to make you look and feel your best. Cosmetic surgery, also called aesthetic surgery, has increased dramatically in popularity over the last decade and the field has undergone significant conceptual and technological changes. Changed attitudes have made people realize the era of “growing old gracefully” is no longer their only choice. In today’s society, if you look in the mirror and do not like something about the person looking back at you, cosmetic surgery allows you the opportunity to change it by altering what you are not satisfied with.
It is difficult to accept the loss of physical beauty and when you are dissatisfied with the way you look, you disconnect between your appearance and your age because you still feel young in your mind. Contrary to popular opinion, cosmetic surgery is not always about vanity. In most cases, it is an educated decision to change an aspect of your appearance in order to increase your self-acceptance. In the past, because the word plastic is included in the title “Plastic Surgery,” some people felt if they chose to have a cosmetic procedure performed they would end up looking fake or unnatural. On the contrary, the work “plastic” is derived from the Greek word “plastikos”, which means to form or mold. Dr. Moelleken considers cosmetic surgery an art form that involves forming, molding, and altering the features you consider flawed into a body you can be proud of. Rarely is someone naturally endowed with the “perfect physique.” Even famous celebrities who are expected to look their best at all times have imperfections and eventually need help to reverse the changes that occur with aging. If something about your appearance bothers you, even a small change on the outside can make an extraordinary difference on the inside.
While more and more men and women are embracing the cosmetic surgery alternative, cosmetic surgery is a significant investment in time, effort, and emotion. The decision to undergo any cosmetic procedure is intensely personal because unlike other surgeries, this type of surgery is voluntary. Successful results are dependent on the open and honest communication you have with your doctor prior, during, and after your surgery.
