Emotional Benefits of Body Contouring

Your body changes in many ways as you get older. You’ve experienced this as you grew from a child and passed through puberty. You noticed it again, as your metabolism began to slow down and you gained some belly fat as an adult. Dieting and exercise can help you lose weight, but sometimes stubborn fat remains.

Body contouring is a minimally invasive way to slim down and put the finishing touches on your weight loss goals. Decreased fat, improved contours, and a tighter physique are all physical benefits of this cosmetic treatment. Did you know, though, that it also offers many emotional benefits?

Dontage, located in Falls Church, Virginia, is here to discuss some of the proven emotional benefits body contouring brings to improve your self-image and overall quality of life.

Improve your social life

Human beings are naturally social. Friendships boost your mental health while bringing you more happiness. When you don’t feel good about yourself, it may hinder your desire to engage in social activity.

Patients in a cross-sectional study who lost a significant amount of weight and received body-contouring surgery reported some significant findings regarding their social life. Approximately 86% of participants felt their self-image negatively affected their social life. However, after their surgery was completed, 83.7% reported their self-image now positively affected their social life.

Better sex life

Suffering from low self-esteem can deplete your desire to have sex. Whether you’re married or single, if you aren’t happy with your body, you won’t feel as inclined to make a move.

Roughly 96% of participants who underwent body-contouring surgery found an improvement in their sex life. This may be just what you need to enrich your relationship with your partner by bringing passion into the bedroom. Not only will you notice more pleasure, but your partner will too. 

Lower levels of depression and anxiety

People dealing with depression or anxiety may eat in an effort to feel better. Similarly, many people who gain weight may become depressed or anxiety-ridden. If you’re dealing with anxiety and depression, it may feel like an endless loop of negative feelings.

Body contouring has improved anxiety and depression levels in patients. It may even make you feel like a weight is lifted off your shoulders, as your mind isn’t riddled with negative thoughts. 

Thrive in your workspace

Work is essential to earn money so that you can survive. If your self-image is hindering your mood, you probably aren’t giving your career your all. Similarly, if you aren’t comfortable with your body, you’ll feel less inclined to take on leadership roles.

Nearly 98% of participants said their career was positively affected by their improved self-image after body contouring. Feeling great about your appearance may land you the recognition to get the promotion you’ve been seeking.

Slim down and boost your mood today

Unwanted fat can plummet your self-esteem, which may spill over into many aspects of your life. Body contouring is a minimally invasive way to permanently get rid of fat without any nips or tucks. In a series of three to five treatments, you can enhance the natural curves of your body for a more desirable, toned look.

Even though the physical aspects are great, body contouring does wonders to improve your quality of life in social, sexual, and workplace settings. Start the path toward a brighter future today and get the body you’ve always wanted.
