Top 5 Reasons to Avoid Cosmetic Surgery

How to avoid cosmetic surgery:

We are all so conscious these days of the way we look and our body image.  With the huge celebrity culture in which we now live, looking like our favourite movie star or television personality has never been more prevalent and many people are turning to invasive cosmetic surgery as a way of helping to improve their self confidence and perceived self worth.

It’s a lesser known fact that if we’re not satisfied with the way we look, we increasingly have options open to us including non-invasive procedures such as CaviSculpt; but we often choose major surgery as that’s what we read more about in the Press.  Cosmetic surgery has become much more accessible and much less expensive with normal people in society driving demand.  Prices have reduced considerably and more and more facilities are offering these invasive services.  In 2005 the industry was said to be worth £750 million in the UK; that rose massively to £2.3 billion in 2010 and is expected to reach £3.6 billion in 2015.

One of the biggest rises in demand last year (2013) was for invasive liposuction which was apparently up by 41%; other popular procedures include face and neck lifts and tummy tucks.  It’s incredible that many people simply don’t know that similar results can be achieved through non-surgical liposuction and ultrasound body sculpting.  Ultim8 Beauty treatment centres using the latest CaviSculpt technology are increasingly widely available across the UK:  Ultim8 Beauty

Top 5 Reasons to Avoid Cosmetic Surgery:

  1. Results are not always as expected: We regularly hear in the news about cosmetic surgery going wrong and celebrities regretting having the work done.  Any surgery is a risk so it’s important to think very deeply about whether it’s a risk you’re prepared to take.
  2. Pain:  With any surgery and particularly invasive cosmetic surgery, there will be a considerable amount of pain involved.  There’s always bruising after cosmetic surgery and stitches sometimes need to be taken out several weeks afterwards.  The pain has to be managed so you need to make sure this is what you really want before proceeding.
  3. Expense:  Whilst the price of cosmetic surgery in the UK has dropped dramatically in recent years, it’s still a considered expense which shouldn’t be taken lightly.  Think about other options that are less expensive such as ultrasonic liposuction.
  4. Complications after surgery:  It’s not uncommon for there to be complications following surgery.  This can be anything from a minor irritation to something much more serious.  Any surgery that is non-essential should be considered with extreme caution and deliberation.  If something goes wrong, it can’t always be fixed.
  5. Downtime:  And lastly, there’s the inevitable down time required following any surgical procedure.  Cosmetic surgery usually results in considerable bruising so if the procedure is visible, you’ll probably feel like hibernating!  You’ll need to take 3 or 4 weeks off work to allow any bruising to subside – this is a luxury most people cannot afford.
