A cosmetic treatment and surgery resource called RealSelf recently conducted an online study of more than 5,000 women that revealed that 87% were unhappy with one part of their body or more, and one in five of those women was actively pursuing plastic surgery as a means of improving the problem area. While every patient is unique, with differing needs and goals, patients pursuing plastic surgery in Jacksonville, Florida can be assured that they have an advocate in Dr. A.H. Nezami of the Jacksonville Cosmetic Surgery Center, who is eager to apply his skills and experience to help patients seeking cosmetic treatment look and feel their best.
The RealSelf study identified a more than 200% increase in patients finally taking the step to address the problem areas that have been plaguing them for years, if not decades. The women surveyed were between the ages of 18 and 64 and surprisingly revealed that a greater percentage of younger women—aged 18 to 24—are dissatisfied with at least one aspect of their appearance while the percentage decreased from more than 90% to 85% for women aged 55 to 64.
The study further delved into the areas women considered most problematic discovering that 65% of the participants were dissatisfied with their midsection while 49% were unhappy with their legs and thighs, 45% wanted to improve their buttocks, and 44% wanted to improve their skin. The good news for potential patients considering plastic surgery across the country, including women in Jacksonville, Florida, is that each of these areas that serve as a source of distress, angst, and decreased confidence, can be simply and safely resolved. For the significant percentage of women dissatisfied with their midsections, Dr. Nezami offers a number of solutions including abdominoplasties (tummy tucks), liposuction, and body contouring.
While awareness and access to cosmetic procedures is demonstrably increasing across the country, RealSelf pinpointed the Internet as the primary source of awareness about plastic surgery and the various treatment options and procedures available. Other information sources included word of mouth, reality TV, magazine articles, and news reports. The Internet not only serves as a critical tool to enable women to make the right treatment choices, it also allows access to vital information about a doctor’s background and history, enabling patients all around the country, including Jacksonville, Florida, to find a treatment provider like Dr. Nezami with years, if not decades, of experience
A recent study by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons supports the idea that interest in plastic surgery is growing nationally, citing a 3 percent increase in cosmetic procedures from 2013 to 2014. The report credited medical and technological advances with offering women a wider array of treatment options, encouraging women who might have been on the fence about plastic surgery to finally step forward and embrace the opportunity and empowerment of change.
