The Psychology Behind Transformation: Is Your Self-Image Affecting Other Areas of Your Life?

Physical self-transformation can take place in many ways and affects everybody differently. From major weight loss to a new haircut, this psychological process is highly based on the mental and physical state of the individual undergoing the change. That being said, for the right person, self-transformation can be one of the best ways to inspire newfound confidence and positively enhance all other areas of your life.

Reasons for Self-Transformation

There are many reasons a person may want to transform their appearance. Maybe you’re worried about the way people at work perceive you. Maybe you’re trying to spark new attraction in a romantic relationship with your partner. Or maybe you’re just interested in improving your appearance for yourself!

Whatever your reason, The Lucas Center has your solution.

A Poor Self-Image IS Poor Health

These days, tons of factors can negatively contribute to our health. From a lack of exercise to social media to work performance or poor relationships, low confidence can be the result of various contributing problems you’re facing. At The Lucas Center, one of the most common reasons for low confidence is a lack of self-esteem in your outer appearance.

American football star Deion Sanders had it right when he said, “if you look good, you play good. If you play good, they pay good.” A negative association with your appearance can cause major damage in all areas of your life, such as work and romantic relationships.

One study even found correlations “between body image and romantic relationships, satisfaction, intimacy, and trust.” Essentially, the people in the study were more likely to find satisfaction in relationships if they were first satisfied with their appearance.

THIS May Be the Solution You’ve Been Looking for…

Though not for everyone, cosmetic and plastic surgery can be a huge help in enhancing your own opinion of your appearance. At The Lucas Center, we believe that each person’s unique body is already art in its purest form. OUR job is to turn it into a masterpiece.

We proudly offer several cosmetic and plastic surgery procedures designed to enhance your existing features (whether on your face or body) and help create the newfound, long-lasting confidence you deserve. Our most common non-surgical facial procedures range from non-invasive aesthetic services, such as chemical peels and microneedling, to injectables, such as BOTOX™.

On the other hand, our most common body procedures range from one-time services, such as breast augmentations, upper and lower eyelid procedures, brow lifts, face and neck lifts, and rhinoplasties (nose jobs), to multi-step services, such as comprehensive body contouring with Power-Assisted Liposuction (PAL) and fat grafting.

Out with the Old (Stigma), In with the New (Confidence)

For a long time, many people assumed that cosmetic and plastic surgery was only done in vain. The truth is, there are SO many benefits to creating an appearance you love. For example, those who’ve been in an accident that’s caused physical damage to their appearance may greatly benefit from restorative procedures, such as skin resurfacing or scar removal treatments. Others who struggle with weight and have seen little to no improvement with consistent diet and exercise may benefit immensely from a breast reduction, tummy tuck, or body lift.

In addition, there are the people who simply wish to look differently because they’re unhappy when they look in the mirror. Today, we’re pleased to report that society no longer has such views regarding plastic surgery. More often than not, people come to our practice feeling motivated and excited to make the first step to improved self-esteem and long-lasting confidence… and they should!

Deciding to go through with a physical self-transformation is an exciting, actionable first step for many patients. When properly planned with the right surgeon and performed precisely, this decision can truly change someone’s life for the better.

Choosing the Right Surgeon for You

Because each human body is different, your surgical plan should be carefully, purposefully developed with your plastic surgeon. If you visit a plastic surgeon who does not take the time to consult with you about your health and goals prior to booking a procedure, consider getting a second opinion. Like Dr. Lucas does with his patients, any surgeon you speak with should make time to review the inquired-about procedure(s) with you and keep up with related industry research. This ensures a safe and optimal outcome is created for you!
