If you want to get ahead in the new year, don’t just make new year’s resolutions. Change the way you look.
Let’s face it – in this Instagram-driven world we live in today, looks matter. While you might be making new year’s resolutions to change your lifestyle, it’s utterly crucial that you also look at how you might actually improve your appearance as well. Why?
According to labour economist Daniel Hamermesh’s book, ‘Beauty Pays’, good-looking people apparently enjoy a surprising number of benefits in their lives over others.
For example, when it comes to judging people based on their education, work experience, gender, and race, those who are more physically attractive have a better chance of getting a job or finding more attractive and intelligent life partners compared to those who are not as good-looking. Professor Hamermesh also noted that better-looking people enjoy significantly higher labour market earnings.
It was found that men with below-average looks earned 13% less than men of average attractiveness. In contrast, men above average in looks earned 4% more.
Similarly, attractive women earned 8% more than their average-looking counterparts, while those below average earned 4% less. The stats are undeniable – guys who look good get more benefits than those deemed less attractive.
The trouble, of course, for most men is knowing where to start. Here’s a head-to-toe cheat sheet on how and what to do.
Bothered by Father Time’s effects on your face and the wrinkles that are starting to show? As we age, it is inevitable for wrinkles, brow furrows, forehead lines or sagging neck to appear. These are often due to weakened collagen in the skin caused by gravity, too much sun exposure and excess facial movement. Wrinkles and lines aren’t just telltale signs of ageing – they can make you appear tired, angry and harsh.
Amaris B. Clinic's Anti Wrinkle treatment eliminates wrinkles and fine lines, leaving you with a younger-looking appearance. To replace facial volume loss, you can also consider a non-invasive 4D Fluid Facelift.
Seeing pigmentations, facial scars or unevenness on your skin? Don’t stress. Pico Fractional Laser is a treatment suited to treat a variety of skin concerns such as dull skin, acne and acne scars, rosacea, pigmentations, sun-damaged skin and melasma. It can also be used for general skin rejuvenation.
Been pounding the gym daily but still see nothing but man boobs? Yes, you should undoubtedly keep working out and maintain a clean diet, but if the problem persists, you may be suffering from gynecomastia.
“Gynecomastia surgery not only permanently removes excess glandular tissues, but it also sculpts the chest area, leaving a more defined and masculine appearance,” says Dr Ivan Puah, an accredited liposuction doctor in Singapore. He adds that the procedure has a short recovery time and results are permanent.
Vaser Liposuction, an ultrasonic-assisted liposuction technique effectively removes stubborn body fat on the abdomen and waist. During the procedure, ultrasonic energy is delivered internally and directly to the fat deposits via a probe, liquefying the unwanted fat into a “buttery” consistency. Finally, using surgical cannulas of varied sizes, Dr Puah will debulk fat and carry out body sculpting for you.
If you are bothered by skin, face or body issues and have no clue what treatments are best suited for you, we recommend that you come for a consultation and assessment with Dr Ivan Puah at Amaris B. Clinic to understand the treatment options that are available for you.
