With tax season upon us, and many of my patients receiving refund checks, the question arises as to how best to spend the money. Obviously, family and financial needs must first be met. But what if there is a little bit more that you could use? Is plastic surgery a good investment?
I am a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, not a financial planner or a business person, so my observations are from my 15 years at Yager Esthetics. I will lay out for you the potential benefits, and you can decide whether it makes sense to you.
Plastic surgery can boost your self esteem and enhance the way you feel about your body and your sexuality. The confidence it brings can change the clothing choices you make, the activities you will participate in, and even the way you interact with others both socially and in business.
A refreshed appearance can make you look younger, more energetic, and less tired to potential romantic interests as well as potential employers. It can also help those who feel young on the inside feel better about looking in the mirror and seeing what they want to see.
Cosmetic Plastic Surgery can be empowering, especially to women after having had children or massive weight loss. It can be a fresh start to a healthier lifestyle, as when you look better, you tend to take better care of yourself through improved diet and exercise.
All of these benefits are enjoyed every hour of every day no matter where you are or what time it is. Yes it is a “me” thing, but if you have worked hard you deserve to do something for yourself.
If the numbers add up for you, it may turn out to be the best money you have ever spent.
