An increasing number of people in the UK are turning to cosmetic surgery following a divorce. According to an article by the Daily Mail, research has found that over a quarter of people now choosing to have cosmetic surgery performed are divorcees. Lisa Hanson, who went through a difficult divorce, decided to have a tummy tuck and liposuction on her hips and thighs, followed later by breast surgery. She also opted for Botox treatment in order to banish her wrinkles. Lisa said her decision to undergo a cosmetic surgery procedure was very much linked to her divorce, and following the procedures she has enjoyed increasing self-confidence. She said: "I am virtually unrecognisable from the woman who went through such a bitter divorce four years ago. With each procedure, I felt my confidence increasing." And its not just women that are having cosmetic surgery performed. The Mail said 11 per cent of cosmetic surgery patients are newly divorced men. Deciding to undergo cosmetic surgery shouldnt be a kneejerk reaction however. By going through a reputable clinic, you will receive help and advice to ensure that you are choosing procedures for the right reasons.
