Low self-worth can be destructive, eating away at your confidence and holding you back in your personal and professional life. It can see you fixate on issues, including your appearance – but if a change through cosmetic treatment will really make you feel better, then it is worth doing.
Low self-worth is a chronic issue. It does not come and go with social situations and setbacks. It is a state of mind that has manifested itself, gnawing away at your confidence. All the time.
Dealing with low self-worth can be draining and overcoming it can feel like climbing a mountain. Taking steps to move forward and build your confidence day by day is the only way forward to change your life.
Can cosmetic treatment help low self-worth?
Whether your low self-worth was established in childhood or set in during a bad relationship or low point in your career, it can make life a challenge.
Having good self-worth allows you to ride out the bumps and dips in life. You know these things happen, it’s not about you. You are good enough as you are.
Great? Yes, but not everyone feels that way. For some people those bumps and dips are taken as a sign that you weren’t good enough in the first place. You were never going to succeed. You don’t even like yourself. The challenge is to move away from that mindset and find the freedom to believe in yourself, and to know that you are just as worthy as anyone else.
Tackling concerns about your appearance
With the spotlight shining so brightly on our physical appearance, not feeling attractive enough can cause real issues with self-worth. Magnified by social media and the filters that create a particular ‘look’, people can feel pushed to aspire to look differently, whether they are men, young women or people in their mid-life.
For men it can be a perceived lack of a chiselled, square jaw while women born with thin lips can spend a lifetime pining for a voluptuous full smile. Once wrinkles and fine lines start to appear these can really dent self-worth, especially for people working in industries where there is an emphasis on the way that you look.
Conventions about beauty can leave people focused on one aspect of their appearance, obsessing negatively about how they look. A bump in your nose may see you avoid side profile photographs and, at an extreme make you feel you are less attractive than other people, in turn damaging your sense of self-worth.
Not liking the way that you look can be a heavy burden to bear if it hurts your self-worth.
Change what you dislike about your appearance
Ultimately everyone is different, and everyone’s ideals of beauty and who they find attractive are very different. While building self-worth also needs to come from the inside, if you really do want to change an aspect of your appearance then you should feel empowered to make that decision. Anything that makes you feel good about yourself and boosts your confidence is a winner when it comes to self-worth – and feeling good about the way you look will certainly help.
If your feelings of self-doubt are rooted in an aspect of your appearance, then make that change. With cosmetic treatment, there is no need for surgery and the results are not permanent should you change your mind.
Aesthetic treatments can be used for several issues, including:
- Non-surgical nose job
- Eye lift and eye bag removal
- Scar treatment
- Anti-wrinkle therapy
- Non-surgical facelift
- Lip fillers
- Adding jawline definition
- Neck lift
Making the change that you want to your physical appearance could be the lift that you need to give you the confidence to move away from the crushing doubts of low self-worth.
Boost your self-worth
As well as making the changes to your life that you want to, it is important to combine that with working on your mental wellbeing.
Many of the ways to work on self-worth also apply to improving your self-esteem. Try to:
- Set targets that you want to meet for yourself and plan how to do that
- Surround yourself with positive people and avoid toxic relationships
- Work on building a positive internal voice
- Take a break from social media
- Move away from a job where you are undervalued
- Practise putting yourself first
- Be kind to yourself
