How do cosmetic improvements affect a person?
For most of us, first impressions are usually lasting impressions. Fair or not, these first impressions can determine our response to individuals who are crucial to our personal, social, and business lives. The most disturbing thing about first impressions becoming lasting impressions is that they are usually based on appearance. For example, how many times have you heard that a person with a small chin looks "weak"? Though this may not be true in reality, the person with a small chin is often viewed as being less aggressive, indecisive, weak, and non-athletic.
A person with a prominent chin is almost always regarded as having a strong, athletic, dynamic, and decisive personality. Even though the size of the chin is not a reliable predictor of personality, it is one way that society uses appearance to create a first impression. Why not take advantage of this human tendency and improve your facial appearance so you make the best first impression?
Is the nose, chin, or neck truly representative of personality? An initial response would be, "No". However, psychological studies show us that people believe they are. These facial features help create the initial impressions that can cause people to respond to each other in characteristic ways. Likewise our reaction to a stranger wearing a beautiful suit and stylish hair is quite different than our reaction to a stranger who is wearing dirty cut off jeans, a torn T-shirt, no shoes, and unwashed hair. We have learned to assign personality characteristics based upon appearance. Some times these judgments are valid. However, frequently they are not, and only time can overcome the judgment that was made in the initial impression.
The self-preservation instinct in humans causes us to make judgments about strangers based on appearance. We must quickly assess weather a stranger is a threat to us. The majority of these initial impressions are formed by a reaction to the other person's overall appearance and physical traits. If a person is seen as handsome or beautiful, hey are less threatening, and that person is usually treated better in many social and business situations than the person seen as unattractive. Is this fair? Absolutely not! Does it occur often? Absolutely!
The self-image of teenagers is very fragile but it is critical to their self worth and social interactions. Many parents don't always see this. Though we know that judging someone by who they are, and not by how they look, is appropriate, our children suffer the damage of negative feedback from their peers. This rejection may be devastating and have a long-term effect on their self-esteem and socialization. Children and teenagers can be very sensitive about their own appearance because their peers put so much emphasis on appearance, and they can be very cruel to those who are less attractive. Frequently their assessment of their own self worth is created by their peer's level of acceptance of them. The impact of this can be seen in their behavior, social life, and, ultimately, their grades. Many teenagers that suffer from low self-esteem due to their unhappiness with their facial features are unhappy with their nose. Two other common causes of distress are a small chin and a fat neck.
Dramatic personality changes frequently occur in teenagers who have been self-conscious about their nose, neck or chin and have undergone surgery to correct this feature. They become more talkative, more outgoing, more social, more productive at school and more self-assured because they feel more attractive, and they are frequently treated better by their peers, teachers and relatives. These personality changes can surface in as little as two weeks after surgery.
Correcting an unattractive facial feature can have incredible benefits whether you are a teenager or an adult. In today's highly competitive educational, business and social worlds, a handsome or beautiful face can be a critical advantage. Adults who are self conscious about their nose, chin, eyes, or other facial feature, experience a wonderful boost in self-esteem when this feature is improved. Not only do they have the personal satisfaction of knowing that they look better, they also experience a change in the way that other people react to them. Frequently, their social and business lives improve because their self-confidence improves and people respond to them in a more positive way.
Correcting unesthetic facial features is easier than ever. State of the art facilities and techniques have reduced costs, discomfort and recovery time. Patients can return to school, work and their normal social life sooner than ever before. And today, most people find facial cosmetic surgery is very affordable.
The goal of facial cosmetic surgery is not to be strikingly beautiful or handsome, but to look attractive, healthy, athletic and energetic. Cosmetic improvement of a bothersome facial feature has long lasting benefits. Usually the enhancement may be enjoyed throughout a lifetime. Not only do these changes improve appearance, they can improve self-esteem and confidence. The psychological benefits of these procedures can change the path of a person's life.
