Accept yourself!

Taking care of physical appearance is extremely important when it comes to #self-care because our look affects our sense of self-esteem and overall well-being. However, in addition to appearance, mental health is an extremely important aspect to enjoy life to the fullest and feel pleasure from the choices we make. At Dr. Parda Clinic Aesthetic Medicine, we offer private psychiatric consultations for adults, providing holistic care in terms of both mental health and a young and healthy look. Undisturbed mind translates into a healthy and beautiful body, and so it is important to act in this direction. 

How to take care of a healthy mind and soul?

At Dr. Parda Aesthetic Medicine Clinic, the doctors not only address problems related to appearance, but also those that are hidden much deeper and affect our perception. In particular, Dr. Parda offers help to people who struggle with depression, anxiety neurosis, and dysmorphophobia. Moreover, Dr. Parda Aesthetic Medicine Clinic provides psychological consultations before opting for a plastic surgery procedure. Aesthetic medicine procedures affect the patient's psyche to a great extent, so it is important to ensure that it is a conscious decision. Although aesthetic medicine can change self-esteem and improve self-confidence, it is crucial to keep in mind that it will not solve internal problems or change attitude towards everyday life. For people with self-perception disorders, the key is to discover the source of the problem, get treatment, and only then undergo an aesthetic procedure.

How to overcome depression?

Depression is a disease that affects more and more people of all ages and contributes to profound mental and physical disruptions. A person struggling with depression is not able to perform the simplest activities, e.g., they neglect their look or fail to prepare meals, among other things. This decrease in life quality is additionally aggravated by a sense of guilt, which may even lead to suicidal thoughts. The best way to cure depression is to combine pharmacological treatment with psychotherapy. At Dr. Parda Aesthetic Medicine Clinic, depression treatment is accompanied by behavioral and cognitive therapy, thanks to which the patient can learn and understand the mechanisms governing their mind and start to perceive the world from a new perspective.

What are the most common symptoms of depression?

  • chronic fatigue,
  • lack of appetite or excessive eating,
  • difficulty concentrating,
  • decreased libido,
  • constant sense of anxiety,
  • sleep disorder – excessive sleepiness or insomnia.

Anxiety neurosis, how does it manifest itself?

At Dr. Parda Aesthetic Medicine Clinic, people suffering from anxiety neurosis can seek help. Such patients tend to feel constant fear of different situations and objects. They are never able to relax and constantly feel tension even in situations that should be comfortable for them. Anxiety neurosis is not only associated with constant mental discomfort, but also with other symptoms such as abdominal pain, insomnia, and excessive sweating. During psychotherapy, Dr. Parda teaches the patient to think positively and take control of their fears. In some cases, however, concomitant pharmacotherapy might be necessary. 

Dysmorphophobia, how to deal with it?

Dr. Parda Aesthetic Medicine Clinic is visited by people who want to improve and refine their appearance. It is a quick way to get rid of imperfections, and thus increase self-confidence and improve general well-being. Unfortunately, body dysmorphophobia can also be observed among these patients. What is body dysmorphophobia? It is a disorder that involves excessive focus on a given defect, or even on the lack of it, which can result not only in immense suffering, but also in the dysfunction of other areas of life. Typically, the defect the patient is obsessed with is negligible or even imagined. Most often, patients with dysmorphophobia will spend several hours a day in front of a mirror, trying to camouflage their imagined defect with clothes or makeup. Dysmorphophobia occurs more and more often in young people due to social pressure and creation of idealized beauty image.

When is psychological counseling needed?

Dr. Parda provides psychological consultations before opting for aesthetic medicine procedures, especially plastic surgery. Of course, aesthetic medicine is able to solve many body-related problems. However, its main task is not, despite appearances, to beautify the body, but to help people who suffer from genetic or post-injury defects. The decision to undergo plastic surgery should be carefully considered because such procedures carry a risk of complications and are extremely invasive. Before the procedure, a specialist will assess whether the patient's expectations are too high in relation to the real possibilities of the procedure. A person who has an unrealistic vision of results should not undergo surgery, as it can lead to disappointment and multiple reoperations to regain their former appearance. Surgical procedures are also not advisable for people who struggle with mental disorders, as it is not the antidote to all mental issues.
