Along with party hats and champagne ads, the New Year often brings resolutions. Most people commit to making improvements in their life. Weight loss, smoking cessation, and stress reduction are common pledges. Making resolutions is easy, but keeping them can be more difficult. Self-improvement can boost your confidence and improve your overall outlook. As a cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Alan Greenberg can help you successfully achieve your goals.
Making Changes that Last
For the best outcome with resolutions, you need to see results. The following tips will help you to make 2012 a fantastic year:
1. Be clear
If you don’t set your mind on a specific objective, you won’t have a target and you may not succeed. For example, if you want to lose weight or improve your appearance, establish a concrete goal, such as lose two pounds a week or schedule a consultation to learn more about cosmetic surgery options like a tummy tuck, liposuction, or breast augmentation.
2. Make a plan
After you have decided on the outcome, you need to outline steps for achieving that end. Wanting a certain result is important, but so is acting on that desire to make it happen. To lose weight, you will probably need to change your diet or add exercise to your routine. Small changes can lead to big results, but you have to start somewhere.
3. Set reasonable expectations
It’s fine to decide that you want to lose 30 pounds, achieve a flatter stomach with a tummy tuck, or enhance your physique with breast augmentation, but thinking this will happen in a month will set you up for disappointment. Be patient and understand that the process will take time. Dr. Greenberg can talk with you about the benefits and limitations of cosmetic surgery procedures as well as answer any questions you may have.
