An article we recently spotted over at Allure talks about the reality that more and more young people are receiving plastic surgeries and cosmetic treatments as graduation gifts. While this might seem like an unusual step away from the usual gifts of money, a watch, or jewelry (and maybe a scrap book), it’s one that might make sense for an awful lot of us.
After all, perhaps the single most important asset a young person can have as they set out to place themselves on the job market and the search for lifelong companionship is self-confidence. If altering a feature that a patient is less than fully pleased with through a procedure such as a rhinoplasty (nose job) or an eyelid lift (blepharoplasty) will make them feel more comfortable when it’s time for that big job interview or important social event, then that’s almost the very definition of the proverbial “gift that keeps on giving.”
The same may apple to such procedures as breast augmentations and breast reductions for young women. Women who feel their breasts are too small often report a greater degree of overall self-confidence after a breast augmentation procedure. Similarly, women who feel that they are over-endowed might prefer a little bit less unwanted attention as well as enjoying some very physical benefits from smaller breasts. (Very large breasts can be associated with such issues as back pain and may also limit the ability to participate in certain sports and activities.)
Here at BHP, we’ve performed the full range of beauty and health treatments for women and men of all ages and, we can tell you, there are few gifts as powerful as the gift of a little extra confidence.
