What Do You Tell Yourself in the Mirror? - Advanced Cosmetic Surgery of NY

We all have a little voice inside of our head that speaks to us. We hear it many times throughout the day, but especially when looking in the mirror.

Think back to the last time you looked at yourself in the mirror and try to remember what you said to yourself. Can you relate to any of these statements?

"Ugh...My nose is so big."

If you said this to yourself while poking at your nose and moving it from side to side or up and down, you probably don't feel good about this central facial feature. You may often look at yourself with a disgusted look and then walk away from the mirror carrying those negative feelings with you like baggage that weighs down your self-esteem.

You don’t have to live this way. You CAN look in the mirror and smile at your reflection. If it's your nose that bothers you, consider speaking to a plastic or cosmetic surgeon. This medical professional can help you adjust the shape, size, width, projection, or angle of your nose so you can walk with confidence, holding your head high.

"I'm so fat."

Do you say this as you suck in your midsection or grab the fat? If so, you're only making yourself feel horrible. The connotation when people call themselves fat is that they are undesirable, and that is not true. Everyone is beautiful in their own way. If you don’t believe that, maybe it's time to focus on areas of yourself that you love. It is important to appreciate the physical traits that contribute to our natural beauty.

Smartlipo™ can help reduce fat in specific areas of the body such as the belly, waist, bra area (back fat), thighs, knees, and arms. With this procedure, small amounts of fat are removed and the skin is tightened to leave behind a leaner, tighter appearance in the treated area(s).

"I can't believe I have man boobs..."

Many men say this to themselves every single day. If you are having this internal dialogue with yourself as you quickly reach for a shirt to cover your chest, it may be time to consider gynecomastia surgery. Male breast reduction will help you get rid of enlarged breasts (excess fatty tissue and glandular tissue) to help you achieve that chiseled, tight looking chest.

"Look at this flat, flabby butt of mine."

If you're turning around in the mirror using your hands to lift your buttocks, chances are you would rather have a rounder, plumper behind. This type of butt doesn't come easy. It requires a considerable amount of fat in the area and rounded gluteal muscles (oh, and genetics!) to get that curvy backside.

However, there is an easier way – a Brazilian butt lift. This procedure takes fat from one or more areas of your body and transfers it to all the right places in your buttocks. An experienced plastic or cosmetic surgeon will be able to create the shape you want to enhance your buttocks to give you the curviest contours possible.
