There is an old expression: “being comfortable in your own skin”. That comfort with who you are and how you look gives a sense of confidence and self esteem that is far more important than aesthetics. Pregnancy, dramatic weight changes, ageing and other factors can change your body – leaving you less comfortable with your appearance. Surgery aims to restore your body contours, improving your shape and the tone of the underlying tissue, often removing excess fat and skin. These procedures are intended to make you “comfortable in your own skin” and to boost your self confidence.
