It is the transformative aspect of plastic surgery where its greatest benefit occurs. I divide this into two main groups. As some of you may know, I also am a fully-trained life coach, having spent a year getting certified with CTI. I explore this in greater detail with patients who I take on as clients for life coaching.
The first aspect is how much better a person feels about themselves following plastic surgery. We are all familiar with the experience that if we feel better about ourselves, our entire attitude changes towards others and the world around us. We are physical and spiritual beings. If we feel more attractive and good about ourselves, this more upbeat attitude will be reflected on our mood towards others. We are likely to treat our partners, family members and co-workers better. We are less likely to be sensitive about small things. There are endless quotes and truths about life being a mirror. If we smile out to the world, the world smiles back at us. It becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy as well. Each day that is good tends to lead to expectations that the next day will be good and so on.
There is a second aspect of plastic surgery that I emphasize a great deal. I do a lot of body reshaping procedures, especially Smartlipo and Sculpture, but also tummy tucks and breast augmentations, breast lifts, and so on. I always stress to my patients that I can definitely improve their bodies. However, there is NO magic. Almost everyone will get a better final result if they can decrease their body fat. Everyone knows that we are experiencing an epidemic of obesity in the Western World. I personally believe (as do many other functional doctors) that our diets play a huge role in all diseases including cancer and heart disease. If I can assist and encourage my patients to eat significantly less processed food, stop all sodas and diet drinks, to eat more vegetables and decrease their carb intake (I firmly believe taking my Ketone Supplements makes this easier), they will be far healthier and will decrease their total body fat.
We are all familiar with situation where a diet is started, but after 4-6 weeks, where there is little change, we give up. However, if someone gets Smartlipo or Sculpsure, this gives them a much greater and quicker change than diet alone would do. It also gives them greater motivation to stick with a better diet and exercise program since they have put in the money and effort to get a procedure done with me. This will lead to long-term life changes both in looking much more toned but also feeling much better. As above, if you feel better about yourself and you also have better health, life will almost certainly find life better for you, and you will make life better for those around you. This will be a change that will last your entire lifetime.
