Things to consider before having Cosmetic Surgery

Cosmetic Surgery and Non Surgical Treatments are on the rise. In 2015 1.4 million women underwent Cosmetic Procedures and 12.5 million had Non Invasive Treatments. So if you’re considering Cosmetic Surgery you’re certainly not alone, but there are some important considerations you should make first.

  • The results of every treatment are not immediate.

This applies to surgeries like Liposuction, where you will have to wear a pressure garment to aid your recovery and can expect temporary, but wide spread bruising following the operation; as well as with Non Surgical Treatments like Lip Fillers, where there will be some temporary swelling and the final results will be visible around a week after the treatment when everything has settled.

It’s important you’re patient and give your body the time it needs to heal properly after Cosmetic Surgery – the results will be worth it in the end!

  • Ask lots of questions.

  • Decide who you’re going to tell about your operation.

Some patients prefer to be discrete about their Cosmetic Surgery, but there really is nothing to be embarrassed about. Increasing numbers of men and women are turning to Cosmetic Clinics to enhance their appearance. If you’re thinking about keeping your procedure a secret ask yourself why it really matters who knows.

  • Remember, you don’t need Cosmetic Surgery

Cosmetic Surgery often has the effect of boosting a patient’s confidence and self-esteem, but no one ever needs to alter their appearance.  The procedures are about changing things that bother you or make you feel self-conscious, but it won’t solve bigger underlying issues.

  • Cosmetic Gynaecology is becoming more popular

This was once an area women felt self-conscious talking openly about. Meaning many patients suffered in silence; nowadays more and more women are having Cosmetic Gynaecology to alter the size and shape of their genitals.
