Can Plastic Surgery Improve Your Sex Life?

Recent studies show that Cosmetic Surgery procedures can improve your sex life. Multiple studies published in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal tracked patients after they had received various body contouring procedures. An overwhelming percentage of responses indicated these procedures enhance the patients’ sex lives as well as their interpersonal relationships. Not only are their own sex lives enhanced, studies show that the sex lives of their partners are also improved.

We have known for a long time that Plastic Surgery had a marked impact on our patients’ self esteem, but this is the first time that research has been used to correlate a relationship between an enhanced physical body, increased self-esteem, and a more satisfying sex life.

Self-esteem Plays a Critical Role in Your Sex Life

A satisfying sex life is dependent on several factors, including a positive body image, healthy self-esteem, and a general feeling of satisfaction regarding life in general. In an article titled, The Secrets to Maintaining a Healthy Sex Life, published on the Harvard Health Publications website, aging and the negative self-image that can develop as a result are noted as significant factors in the decline of a healthy sex life. The aging process can cause individuals to mourn the loss of their youth as well as the noticeable change in their physical features. This dissatisfaction with physical aging is enhanced by a culture that celebrates hyper-glamorized examples of human form. Perhaps you are dissatisfied by the way your body has gained weight, lost tone, or the wrinkles that have developed as skin elasticity decreases.

This dissatisfaction can lead to a type of body-image related depression. These issues can make a person so self-conscious that s/he no longer feels uninhibited in the bedroom. Plastic Surgery can use procedures like Face and Neck Lifts to remove wrinkles, breast augmentation, or liposuction, all of which can restore a person’s physical sense of health and vitality.

Of course, if your sex life is improving, so is the sex life of your current partner. Self-confidence is one of the most desirable qualities a person can have. We are all attracted to people who are comfortable in their own skin. When you use Cosmetic Surgery to enhance your physical appearance, and become more comfortable in your body, you will naturally become more desirable to others. This enhanced desire will increase their libido and will further enhance your sexual relationship.

Never Undergo Cosmetic Surgery for the Benefit of Somebody Else

While we feel this scientific evidence is exciting news for our patients, we would never advocate getting Cosmetic Surgery for the sole purpose of enhancing your sex life. It is important to us that our patients have a very specific, physical issue that they want to change. Perhaps they are tired of having a large nose or thin lips, and these features cause them to be self-conscious when they meet others. Maybe they are getting ready to attend their 50th high school reunion and would like to have some work done to erase unwanted frown lines. These are all anatomical issues that can be easily resolved using Plastic Surgery.

However, sometimes clients come to us because their significant other has requested that they make a change to their body or face. In these cases, we ask that our clients seriously consider their options before making a final decision. The effects of Cosmetic Surgery are permanent, and you should never make permanent changes to your body at someone else’s request. We have even been known to refuse to do a procedure if the doctor feels a patient is pursuing Plastic Surgery for the wrong reasons.
