The biggest debate which continues to rumble on is whether cosmetic surgery offers better results to non-surgical treatments. But is it actually more likely that a mixture of the two is often the key to patients getting the best results?
Heading back to work is depressing enough for most, without the worry of your clothes pinching at your waist or your tired skin making you look washed-out- so what can you do? As editor of The Cosmetic Surgery Guide, I'm lucky enough to get an insight into all of the revolutionary treatments on the market. Let me share my top 3 youth-boosting tips.
Vaginal surgery is one of the fastest increasing areas of cosmetic surgery in Britain. According to a recent survey by The Cosmetic Surgery Guide, intimate procedures such as labiaplasty and vaginal rejuvenation are becoming more and more popular.
The new trend, dubbed 'Moobember' has taken the UK by storm in recent years, with men of all ages seeking cosmetic treatment to rid themselves of their 'moobs or 'moobies'' in time for the Christmas.
Dermal fillers are becoming a hugely popular treatment here in the UK for those looking to fill lines and wrinkles. However, what worries me is the misleading and often incorrect information many people are given about dermal fillers.
As the Department of Health labelled dermal fillers a 'crisis waiting to happen' and the Bruce Keogh review suggested a lack of expertise by some administering injectable treatments means patients having non-surgical procedures may be exposed to 'unreasonable risks', how can you protect yourself?
The original silicone myth was that 'deadly substances' could enter your bloodstream if your breast implants ruptured. It's important to note this is not the case with the majority of well-made, modern implants.
There are several different types of hair loss, from the commonor-garden 'male pattern baldness' - real name 'androgenic alopecia' - to the rarer 'alopecia areata', where clumps of hair fall out. For the latter problem, hair does usually grow back eventually, but male pattern baldness tends to be degenerative - i.e. it will keep on going.
There's no denying that the rich and famous have got all sorts of things us regular folk would like. The money, flashy cars and big houses, to name a few, are obviously very appealing, but it seems we're also keen to get our hands on their perfectly formed features too.
In my mind it's simple; cosmetic surgery isn't to be taken lightly, and giving it away as a prize or reward is frankly just irresponsible. I can't even begin to express my horror after reading about an American ophthalmologist who was in the news this week for offering cosmetic procedures to anyone who can set him up with his 'dream woman'.
