DIY Alternatives to Plastic Surgery
Plastic surgery can be a great confidence booster.

Permanently fixing a cosmetic issue that bothers you does wonders for your self-esteem. But, there are alternatives to adjusting your appearance that don’t require going under the knife.

For perkier and larger breasts, you can exercise your pectoral muscles. This tones the muscles which lift the fatty breast tissue. Push-ups are great for toning. Improving your posture with yoga, Pilates and planking makes a significant difference.

Thighs are common fat depositories for women. This is probably why liposuction came about. Targeted exercises, stretching and strengthening will improve the areas. Try lunges and squats. Diet may help if you restrict certain foods.

If your face shows signs of aging, a plastic surgeon can use your fat as filler. Use sunscreen. Be sure to cleanse, exfoliate and moisturize your skin. You can make a face mask from avocado and cream.

Listen in as Dr. Andrew Ordon, Emmy-nominated co-host of The Doctors, shares his tips for making cosmetic improvements without invasive plastic surgery.
