Whether you're interested in a full Miami Mommy Makeover or a subtle dermal filler, you'd be amazed at how transformative plastic surgery can be. Though these procedures won't necessarily change your life on their own, the boost of confidence that accompanies them could empower you in more ways than you'd ever expect. They could even give you the freedom to finally feel like yourself when you look in the mirror.
Recently, the media outlet Main Street shared the story of one man who put years an end to years of bullying and depression by going under the knife. The 25-year-old, whose name was changed to Vincent for the sake of his privacy, had developed male breasts as a teenager and his self-esteem had plummeted as a result of the constant jeers and jibes he endured.
"My son grew up with all these people making fun of him because of his breasts," his mother Laura told the source. She finally took her son to see a medical professional when he was 23 years old, at which point he was diagnosed with gynecomastia.
After suffering more abuse on a construction job when he took his shirt off to escape the blazing heat, Vincent began investigating his options for breast reduction surgery. Two years later, he and his mother were able to afford the procedure.
"I see a wonderful change in Vinny – more confidence," Laura said, adding that the scrimping and saving was definitely worth it.
