4 Confidence boosters to look your best

Dec 14, 2016

How we look is closely linked to how we feel about ourselves. If we feel that we look great, our confidence levels are known to soar. Your confidence levels can then influence every area of your life, from your own feelings of self-worth to how you manage personal relationships and how you perform at work.

Think about the things we do on a daily basis linked to our appearance:

  • We do our make-up and our hair
  • We choose what clothes to wear
  • We make alterations to the things we wear
  • We add accessories and use fragrance to round off our image

Consider how different you feel when you leave the house and you haven’t had time to create the appearance you normally do. We can feel noticeably less confident, while other people will notice a change in you, too! This can be a vicious circle; you might already be feeling less than 100%, and less confident than you normally do, and then someone comments on how tired you look and you start to feel even worse.

While these are day to day scenarios that we all deal with, many of us also have features that aren’t as easy to deal with, which can reduce our confidence and in many cases caused anguish and anxiety, which then takes over all aspects of our lives. Some of us will also have experienced life events which may have had a profound effect on how we view ourselves, such as a split from a partner or seeing our children leave home and wondering “what’s next?” for ourselves. In such cases, cosmetic surgery is an option that can help to transform your appearance and boost your confidence massively in the long-term.

What are your options when it comes to seeking such a confidence boost that could change your life?

Cosmetic Dentistry

The appearance of our teeth, and self-awareness over how we look when we smile, can be a real confidence killer.

Whether you feel like you need a lot of work done or if your smile would simply benefit from a whitening treatment, undergoing cosmetic dentistry can be a real game changer for your appearance and confidence levels. Never again will you find yourself worrying about smiling in photographs, and you may even feel more confident when speaking to others, too!

Weight Loss Makeovers

Whether you are struggling to lose weight, or you have lost weight but still aren’t happy with your appearance, then a weight loss treatment could be an option for you.

If you have tried dieting and followed all the recommendations given by your doctor, then bariatric band surgery may be an option. For those who have lost weight but are still low in confidence due to their appearance it could be worth considering liposuction, a face lift, or a lower body lift to give you the figure you desire.


Our face is the main component of our personal image that we present to the world every day. If we’re not happy with any of our facial features, it can be a huge downer on how we feel about ourselves as a whole.

The nose is often the biggest cause for personal anguish and self-awareness, but can be taken care of with a rhinoplasty treatment. You can combine cosmetic nose surgery with treatment for opening your airways to make breathing easier, too, so you enjoy health benefits as well as an appearance and confidence boost.

Breast Augmentation

While cosmetic surgery in general is becoming more accessible, and more people than ever are opting for simple procedures such as botox and lip fillers, breast augmentation is still the most popular type of cosmetic surgery in Australia.

There is a wide range of reasons as to why breast augmentation may be something you wish to consider. These include wanting a fuller or more rounded breast, a desire to feel more feminine, or to correct the effects of a previous surgery or weight loss. Whatever you reason for considering breast augmentation your consultant will be able to discuss your options with you.
