It’s common to want to make some resolutions and lifestyle changes at the beginning of the year. Dr. Grawe and the ROXY Plastic Surgery team wanted to share our list of resolutions that we think our patients in Columbus should follow.
1. Change the Things I can and NOT Accept the Things I cannot change:
Diet and exercise can make big changes to your body shape. But you CAN NOT get rid of unwanted excess skin without surgery. Some women want to keep their “war wounds” from having children – while others elect to undergo Abdominoplasty to get rid of loose skin and tighten the abdominal muscles that are stretched from pregnancy.
2. Finally Get Rid of My Unwanted Hair:
Laser Hair removal is the best way to permanently remove hair. At ROXY Plastic Surgery, we make sure it’s pain free with numbing cream and cool air during the procedure. Winter is a great time to start the process so you’ll be smooth and confident by summer!
3. Stop thinking about myself:
Women are notorious for worrying about what they look like. Everyone has that one thing that bothers them – your breasts are small and can’t fit into a bathing suit, your nose is too big, your forehead looks wrinkled in pictures…. When you have that one thing in the back of your mind, you can’t focus on what’s in front of you – your kids, your friends, your work… Consider taking time to give yourself the gift of being ok with changing that thing. After having plastic surgery – whether it’s botox, a breast augmentation, or a rhinoplasty – women tell us that they stop thinking about their problem, and find that they are a better Mom, friend, co-worker, wife etc…
4. Get More Sleep:
Ok, this one might be impossible – but you can look more well rested with Eyelid treatments! An upper blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) can be performed in the office with local anesthesia. For the lower lids, you can have microneedling to regenerate collagen and look younger and vibrant!
5. New Hair for the New Year!
Hair Transplantation can be performed in the office with local anesthesia and relaxation medication. In one day, you can finally have a full head of hair. Fixing that receding hairline will make you look younger and more successful (studies have shown). If you keep checking out that bald spot on the crown of your head – you can get rid of it with Neograft hair transplantation – no linear scar!
