Did you set specific resolutions about your appearance this year? Chances are you did! But do you have a plan for achieving them? Unfortunately, Forbes reports that only 8% of people achieve theirs each year. But don’t worry… We can help! Just consider these 3 simple steps:
1. Make Your Goals Specific
Those generic, broad-scope resolutions to “lose weight” and “look younger” are likely a fast path to failure. If you make your goals more specific — “get rid of love handles,” “smooth out wrinkles,” “wear sunscreen every day!” — you’ll know exactly what you need to do and be more likely to take the necessary action to meet those goals.
2. Make Them Realistic
While a having a specific plan is a fantastic step in the right direction, it’s also important to consider how realistic it is.
- “I want to look more rested.” Yes —Easily achieved with Botox or a brow lift.
- “I want to look 25 years younger.” No — A facelift can turn the clock back by about 10 years. We’re not sure how you’d shave off 25…
- “I want to lose a couple of inches on my thighs.” Yes — Easily achieved with lipo or CoolSculpting.
- “I want to lose 20 inches all over.” No — Unfortunately, nothing in the plastic surgeon’s office is a weight-loss solution. There’s also a limit to fat removal, for safety’s sake.
3. Plan Your Budget
So what’s it going to cost… and how are you going to pay for it? Simple: First, you book your consultation to find out what exactly what amount you’re budgeting for this year. Second, you determine if you’re going to need financing options, such as those offered through CareCredit. Either way, we’re here to help, so just ask if you have a question or need any kind of assistance.
Happy New Year!
