Being happy with your image is something that can be elusive for a lot of people. Various surveys have been taken with varying results, but as many as half of all people asked will admit to not being happy with how they look. And this is just at the time of the survey. Ask them on a bad day and the numbers will be higher.

There are various problems tied up in self-image. First of all, there is the fact that many of us have a distorted image of our own appearance. A major trigger for anorexia, for example, is people looking in the mirror and thinking some part of them is fat. Quite often, every test you could run will show that they aren’t, but the mind is a powerful thing – for good and for bad.

There are many aspects, for all of us, that we can feel dissatisfied with. And in some cases, no matter how much friends and loved ones reassure us, that’s an impression that will stick.

 

“I Hate My Nose”

 

Ask a hundred people who admit to thinking they are ugly which facial feature they have an issue with. Probably more than fifty of those will say it’s their nose. Usually they’ll say it’s too big, but it could also be that it’s bent, or too wide.

There are approaches with makeup that can make a difference, and it is worth experimenting with those. If you are determined that surgery is the way forward, make an appointment for a consultation. Talk it over with close friends before making any decision.

 

“I’m Fat”

 

The most stubborn impression to conquer is one of dissatisfaction with your weight. In some cases, we can stand to lose a few pounds, and this can and should be done by healthy eating and exercise. It may well be the case, however, that the weight we are at is healthy.

Eating disorders such as bulimia and anorexia are tied to depression. Self-image takes a beating in these conditions, which can ruin a life. If you wish to lose weight or just get slimmer, speak to a doctor first. They will tell you what your ideal weight should be, and how to get there.

 

“I Hate My Breasts”

 

There may be any number of reasons why a woman is unhappy with her breasts. Projected images, often airbrushed, of the way they should look are never far from our gaze. Alternatively, after major weight loss or a pregnancy, they can begin to sag.

If you wish to gain some size or regain some perkiness, then it is worth speaking to a breast augmentation specialist. Although some view a breast augmentation as an exercise in vanity, it may be that it is the best way to regain some lost confidence. Before having any operation done, a consultation is necessary. It is important to go into any procedure with realistic expectations.

 

Sometimes, no matter what people tell you, you will not feel comfortable in your own skin. It is hard for the person inside the skin to judge sometimes, and this is why you should always talk to someone. Maybe taking action is what you need. But it may also be that your problem is more one of self-image. If this is the case, no surgery will ever have totally satisfactory results.
