There’s No Shame in Vanity

It’s difficult to admit this but I’ve been overweight for most of my adult life. After repeated failures attempting to lose the weight, I made the decision to sign up for surgery. I was inspired after finding a Groupon for a tummy tuck in San Antonio. Did you know that belly fat is more dangerous than fat that lies elsewhere on your body? It’s true. Several studies have shown that it acts differently than the others and are an indicator of increased risk of cardiovascular disease.This is because this type is biologically more active than other areas and can cause the formation of calcium deposits along the artery walls.

A study published in the New England Journal of Medicine even found that people with spare tires (the ring of fat that sits around the belly) are more like to die of cardiovascular disease than those without the issue.Ideally, you want to have your waist circumference be smaller than your hip and thigh circumference. Every extra 2-inches of belly circumference that you gain can raise your mortality risk significantly, 17 percent for men and 13 percent for women. Surgical cosmetic enhancement is a procedure that not only brings about profound effects on a person’s physical appearance, but drums up potential issues and feelings deep in the psyche.

The majority of plastic surgery candidates are men and women who are emotionally whole and satisfied with their general appearance and life. These individuals may see one or two ways they can tweak themselves, but don’t have overbearingly negative or hateful opinions of themselves. Such men and women are acceptable candidates for plastic surgery. I never thought I would be one of those individuals who would embrace plastic surgery, but even I have to admit that I’m tired of being perceived as an unattractive individual in greater society.
