Do Married People Have A Health Advantage?Posted on May 11, 2017
According to a recent online article research shows that married couples enjoy better mental and physical health than their unmarried counterparts and are at less risk of developing chronic conditions than their widowed or divorced counterparts. A University of Missouri expert reported that people who have happy marriages are more likely to consider their health as getting better with age. Aging adults with physical health that is declining could benefit greatly from improving their marriages. Researchers analyzed the long-term relationship between self-rated quality of marriage and helps. They discovered that in every stage of marriage, positive or negative relationships have an effect on a person’s health. Researchers encourage medical professionals to think about the aging process as being affected by marital relationships. Having a positive marriage is not a cure for chronic diseases such as cancer or diabetes; however, building stronger relationships will improve the spirits of both people and lower their stress. Medical professionals are urged by researchers to consider patient’s personal relationships when recommending treatment plans. Dr. Kim encourages patients who are considering plastic surgery to enlist the support of their significant other as well as close friends and family. Support is extremely beneficial not only in the research phase when considering plastic surgery but also throughout the plastic surgery experience and recovery. Patients considering procedures including breast augmentation and liposuction will have a better experience overall if their significant other is supportive. Both breast augmentation and liposuction are procedures that are popular and public opinion tends to be either in favor of the procedures or against them. While most patients are overwhelmingly satisfied with their results, with a supportive network the entire experience is much more enjoyable. Patients who are considering cosmetic plastic surgery are encouraged to contact Dr. Kim and schedule a consultation.
