The sluggish economy has caused many Americans to cut spending, and to limit expenditures to just the essentials. In light of that, some find it surprising that plastic surgery procedures have declined only slightly in the past 2 years. At my practice, patients tell me that they consider plastic surgery in Atlanta a sound investment in tough economic times. Here are some of their reasons:
- The increased self confidence that may come with plastic surgery can carry over to other aspects of your life, such as work performance and interpersonal relationships. Some of my patients even feel that looking younger and more attractive is an advantage in the job market.
- The benefits of plastic surgery are lasting. Many of my patients tell me that they’d rather spend their money on cosmetic enhancements, which they can enjoy for years, than on other things such as entertainment or dining out.
- Some of my patients believe that looking better has helped them to have a more positive outlook in these tough times. Many of them report feeling revitalized and uplifted after their procedure, which has helped them to maintain an optimistic attitude.
How you spend your money is entirely up to you. If you think plastic surgery could improve the way you look or the way you feel, and it makes financial sense for you, go ahead and make an investment in yourself.
