Do you love you?
Only you know what’s best for you and it’s no one else’s business.
What is important is to do your research and understand the risks and possible benefits so that you can make an informed decision.
It’s fair to say that being unhappy about an aspect of your appearance can impact on your sense of self.
Feeling self-conscious in social or work settings can be detrimental and influence how much of yourself you actually bring to the occasion.
Many of us have had that experience of hoping the other person doesn’t notice whatever it is we’re self-conscious about. We also sometime make efforts to emphasise one aspect of our appearance or hide another.
Stay grounded – be empowered
If you are thinking about having a facial plastic surgery procedure, it’s important to keep things in perspective.
Understand what a facial plastic surgery procedure can and can’t do.
When you give yourself permission to address an area that has concerned you for a long time, it can be empowering.
Whether you decide to go ahead or not, you’ll still have good days and bad days.
Facial plastic surgery, like being human, is not a one size fits all approach. It’s completely individual.
When you see before and after photos of another patient’s results it’s an indication only of the type of outcomes that are possible. Dr Marcells takes your unique facial proportions into account and assesses for balance and harmony.
Expressing your concerns and your desired outcome is often the starting point. Whether it’s an aesthetic concern (such as shape, size, proportion, or tone), or a functional concern (such as breathing difficulties, impaired vision or tiredness) … the important thing is to feel that you have been listened to and understood, and that your questions have been answered.
For aesthetic procedures, Dr Marcells uses the latest facial imaging technology as a visual communications tool. This involves taking photos of your face and then using computer software to manipulate the image and visually demonstrate the desired results. This process helps you ‘see’ the look you’re aiming for and be assured that you and Dr Marcells have the same outcome in mind.
The time will come
when, with elation
you will greet yourself arriving
at your own door, in your own mirror
and each will smile at the other’s welcome
– An excerpt from “Love After Love” by Nobel Prize-winning poet, Derek Walcott
Self-confidence is taking the first step and then deciding what is right for you. Make an informed decision.
