Cosmetic Surgery Rises in Popularity as Social Acceptability Gains Ground
Cosmetic surgery is on the rise in the US, and it shows no signs of slowing down. According to a new study commissioned by website RealSelf, more than one out of every five women (20.2 million) claim they are seeking plastic surgery. Most are young women, and 90 percent of that age group surveyed stated they were unhappy with at least one body part. Of that 90 percent, 30 percent reported wanting to pursue a cosmetic operation. Though centers for plastic surgery are popping up in record numbers to meet the increasing demand, respected medical groups like Beverly Hills Physicians are becoming busier than ever with both new and returning patients.

According to the study, the most popular area of dissatisfaction was consistent regardless of age, race or ethnicity. Across the board, women reported being most unhappy with their midsection, with 65 percent identifying their back or abdomen as their top problem area with the chest area being a close second, pointing to the consistent popularity of breast implants. The study further concluded that women who seek surgery experience a number of psychosocial benefits from cosmetic procedures, with the top three being: overall confidence level, self-esteem and positive opinion regarding their own level of sex appeal.

Medical centers that offer the full range of the most popular cosmetic procedures by highly-skilled board certified doctors, such as the medical team at Beverly Hills Physicians, are able to help both women and men experience the benefits of cosmetic treatments for themselves. 249-4040

Feel like a Bathing Beauty in your Bikini Bottoms
Some women can throw on a bikini without a second thought. Others hesitate, held back by embarrassment over how their body looks in the "bathing suit area." For women who are uncomfortable about the large size of their labia, swimsuits, yoga pants and even today's denim styles pose as reminders that their most private parts can draw unwanted public attention.

There is a solution: A labiaplasty procedure can reduce the size of the labia minora or majora during an in-office procedure that takes about an hour. Recovery is quick and consultations are free. Aesthetic Center of Santa Clarita

Avoid Social Media Photo Faux Pas
We've all done it - clicked on some blaring headline to see embarrassing pictures of unsuspecting victims - while we're scrolling through social media. We all want to see the fashion faux pas, the plucking disasters, the makeup mayhem - on somebody else. But what if the picture in that scroll is you?

In these days of internet anything goes, photos you post on social media can be picked up by anyone without your permission, so don't give anyone material that's going to make you look bad. If your brows or facial hair need a little work, make sure to stop before you take that selfie.
