In brief: This is up to you.

Much of body image is how you feel about yourself.
Everybody wants to look their best, but after a point, it is how you feel about yourself that is probably the main factor. If you can feel good with what you have done to improve your body image, then that is enough. Options like support groups can help by seeing other people who are dealing with the same issues you are and how to handle them.
