Five of the Most “Worth It” Cosmetic Surgery Procedures According to RealSelf
According to RealSelf, an online community where members rate their experiences with cosmetic procedures, some cosmetic procedures consistently provide the most satisfaction among patients who have undergone them. In addition, the site ranks procedures by the percentage of members who respond that their procedure was “worth it.”
These procedures are often tied to a person’s sense of self-esteem and self-worth, but they also improve a person’s health and quality of life in many cases.
Here at Glamour Plastic Surgery and Med Spa, Dr. Olga Bachilo, a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon, has found that, among her Houston-area patients, the following five cosmetic procedures are the among the most sought-after surgeries in her practice and the ones that her patients consider most “worth it.”
Breast reduction is a breast enhancement procedure that reduces the size and volume of your breasts. Breast reduction can be a real gamechanger for women whose breasts are excessively large and heavy. Oversized breasts can not only detract from your physical appearance but can also cause a series of painful side effects, such as back and shoulder pain, poor posture, and chafing of the skin under the breast due to excessive rubbing of skin tissue. As a result, many women choose to combine breast reduction with a breast lift, which often makes the procedure even more “worth it.”
Breast reduction got a 97% “worth it” rating on RealSelf, and Dr. Bachilo’s patients have provided similar feedback. After a breast reduction procedure, patients generally feel relieved of a heavy weight. In addition, their posture improves, the pain in their neck and shoulders is relieved, and their physical appearance is more streamlined, so it’s easier to shop for clothing and achieve a more flattering fit.
The tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a procedure that sculpts the waistline and flattens the belly by removing extra fat and tightening the abdominal wall muscles while also trimming away any excess skin in cases where a patient has undergone dramatic weight loss. The results of your tummy tuck can last many years if you maintain a consistent weight, a balanced diet, and an active lifestyle.
The tummy tuck got a 96% rating on RealSelf, and the procedure is popular among male and female patients. Most individuals lose about 2-3 pants sizes after a tummy tuck, and the results are a tighter, more sculpted midsection, which not only improves your appearance but also benefits your long-term health as the abdominal wall muscles provide improved support for your internal organs.
Breast augmentation is another breast enhancement procedure that increases the size and volume of your breasts, either increasing the natural size of your bust or replacing volume lost to aging, weight loss, pregnancy, or breastfeeding. The procedure is most often performed with breast implants, but many patients are now opting for augmentation using natural fat transfer injections or combining both techniques.
Breast augmentation is the most widely performed cosmetic procedure in the United States and has a 97% rating on RealSelf.
A mommy makeover is a combination of plastic surgery procedures customized for each patient to help restore your body to a more youthful and fit state after the dramatic changes caused by pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. You don’t even have to be a mom to get a mommy makeover. The procedure is also widely performed in women who have undergone dramatic weight loss.
The combination typically includes breast enhancement procedures, such as breast reduction, breast augmentation, and/or breast lift, a tummy tuck, and other procedures customized for each patient, such as liposuction, body contouring, vaginal rejuvenation and other procedures that your surgeon may recommend.
The advantage of combining surgeries into a mommy makeover package is that you will only have to receive anesthesia once, and you’ll only have to go through recovery once. This will also save you a lot of money in the long run. Best of all, you’ll see a more comprehensive and total transformation at the end of your recovery, which will make the whole experience far more “worth it.”
The mommy makeover got a 95% rating on RealSelf, and many patients report that, once fully healed from all post-op inflammation, the results far exceeded their expectations. In addition, many report feeling younger, being inspired to work out again, and wearing clothes they had never been comfortable wearing before.
Gynecomastia surgery, or male breast reduction, is another procedure that provides excellent satisfaction for patients after recovery. Gynecomastia is a simple outpatient procedure that removes excess benign male breast tissue, as well as excess fat and skin, reducing the appearance of “man boobs” in men and teen boys.
Gynecomastia, typically caused by a hormonal imbalance, may be brought on by puberty, the use of anabolic steroids, and dramatic weight fluctuations, as well as certain medications, and of course, genetics. For men and teen boys who have this condition, it may become embarrassing to wear tight-fitting shirts or go shirtless. For some, this may begin to limit participation in certain social and athletic activities, slowly detracting from their quality of life.
More and more men are now electing to include gynecomastia surgery as part of a more comprehensive “daddy makeover” procedure by combining the surgery with a tummy tuck, liposuction, and other customized procedures.
Gynecomastia surgery has a 97% “worth it” rating on RealSelf, and Dr. Bachilo’s male patients have provided excellent feedback.
