Dr. Kulick’s Philosophy A healthy level of self-esteem is one of several factors which contribute to an emotionally satisfying life. Having pride in one’s physical appearance can affect this level of self-esteem. Sometimes, individuals may have cosmetic physical problems that cause great personal concern. There may even be a disparity between their own self-image – how they see themselves, and their body image – how other people see them. A problem that is very troublesome to a person, may seem insignificant to a friend or loved one. When such a disparity in an individual’s image exists, it can often weaken that person’s self-esteem, and lead to associated frustration, anxiety or depression. Corrective measures to bridge this gap between self-image and body image can take several forms, both surgical and non-surgical. Because cosmetic surgery is not a self-image panacea, Dr. Kulick conducts a preliminary consultation to assess an individual’s need and motivation for surgery. Numerous physical conditions can be significantly improved by cosmetic surgery. Even a relatively minor procedure can ease the anxiety associated with a physical condition. Once the patient and Dr. Kulick have a clear understanding of the desired change, the procedure can then be planned. Dr. Michael Kulick international expert in plastic surgeryThrough cosmetic surgery, Dr. Kulick has helped many patients overcome their physical concerns from birth defects, deformities caused by injury, problems attributed to genetic structure, and the effects of aging. In such cases, cosmetic surgery provided a heightened level of self-esteem and an enhanced quality of life. Dr. Kulick is a recognized international expert in the field of plastic surgery. Things to know. Board certified plastic surgeons undergo years of extensive training and adhere to a code of ethics and proven protocol when performing a surgical procedure.
