What to Consider Before Investing Money in Your Body

*Collaborative post.

Have you ever wanted to change a part of your body? Maybe you’ve never liked your nose or perhaps you can see the benefits of Botox?

Whatever it is, the chances are that if you’re considering cosmetic surgery, you’ll need to do some research into what it involves. You’ll also need to think about why you want the surgery. Perhaps you’re experiencing discomfort because you have larger breasts, or it might be that you’re just looking for some simple updates to even out your skin.

There is a lot to consider before you go under the knife. To help you work through the essentials, here is a look at the things to think about before you take the leap.

The key questions

One of the most common surgeries among women is breast enhancement surgery. The team at Transform Hospital Group has listed the five most common questions that potential patients put to their breast surgeons.

These include how much will the surgery cost, what types of breast implants are there, and how long will it take to recover post-surgery. The other two top questions are around how natural the new breasts will look and does pregnancy affect breast implants.

These are all important points to consider. Knowing the cost before you make any commitments, for example, can be the deciding factor for you. Alternatively, you may be put off by the average six-week recovery time. By reading through the answers supplied, you can see if your main questions are answered.

However, there’s more to cosmetic surgery than getting the top answers to your main questions.

Choosing your surgeon

So, you’ve got the answers to your questions. Should you have your heart set on getting breast enlargements or rhinoplasty, you’ll need to do your research into the best person for the job.

The most important thing to do is to check the surgeon’s credentials. What experience do they have? Are they accredited by the General Medical Council?

Next, look out for recommendations. Sites such as TrustPilot are worth checking out as you’ll see reviews from previous clients.

And is the cost of the surgery too good to be true? Chances are, it really is. Cheap cosmetic surgery may also mean a reduced level of service and care.

Also, make sure you take a tour of the clinic beforehand and check pictures of the facilities. This is a clinical environment, therefore it should be clean and hygienic.

Why get surgery?

Choosing to get surgery is a personal choice. There are lots of reasons why you might want to change your appearance. Perhaps you’ve always been uncomfortable with a certain part of your body or maybe you just want to enhance an area that you like.

If you take the time to fully research the surgeon and surgery, and ask all the questions that you feel you need to put to the surgeon before you go ahead, then you can make your own informed decision.

You should never feel pressured to amend your body. This is something that should ultimately give you joy and make you feel comfortable. If you don’t feel mentally prepared to undergo the procedure, then you ought to reconsider. There’s no need to rush into anything you aren’t ready for.

Are you considering having cosmetic surgery? What are the key questions you have for your surgeon?

How to Find the Right Car for You

*Collaborative post.

Whether you’re buying a car for the first time, or finally trading in a vehicle you’ve been trundling around in for years on end, the car-buying process can be a little bit intimidating. It’s the most major purchase many of us make in our lifetimes (with the exception of your house), and there’s extra pressure to make the right call.

What You Should Consider Before Buying A Used Car picture

What do you need?

Before making any purchase of this sort, it’s vital to take stock of just what you’re after. Are you going to be frequently carrying passengers? What kind of surfaces are you going to be driving on? Will you be performing short urban commutes, or travelling great distances over motorways? Do you have a boat or a caravan that needs towing?

The answers to all of these questions will exert a massive influence on your ultimate choice of vehicle. But if you’re going to be driving this new car frequently, it’s also worth considering the driving experience – if a car is a pain to drive, then you’ll probably come to resent it.

What can you afford?

Having an idea of your budget at the outset will help to prevent you from entering into a burdensome agreement. You don’t want to be crippled by debt repayments for months on end, after all. If you’re in a comfortable financial position, then you might elect to pay for the entire vehicle outright. This will end up cheaper in the long term, as you won’t have to worry about interest. For everyone else, financing makes a sound investment. As a general rule, you’ll want to restrict the amount your spend on your car to around 20% of your overall outgoings, and ideally less than that.

Your financial circumstances will influence your decision; if you’re working a zero-hours contract, or you’re self-employed, then you might prefer the financial security that comes with lower payments.

Shopping around

If you’re based in Belfast and you’re in the market for a Rav4, then looking at every Toyota dealer Northern Ireland has to offer might be impractical. Still, it’s worth examining your options and looking to see what kind of aftercare is offered at each dealership.

To lease or to buy

Leasing a car provides many advantages over buying one. To begin with, you’ll be driving a more expensive car than you otherwise would. Moreover, you’ll be able to easily upgrade every few years without the hassle of a trade-in. However, you’ll tend to spend less money overall if you opt to buy, and you’ll have the luxury of being able to modify it to suit your particular tastes.

 

Studying a course a week. Reading a book a week.

I am officially done with the first year of university. The second-year starts in October. The last set of assignments was submitted in April and studies have been on pause since there. The break is a very long one, so I have decided to carry on studying over the break. Taking that many months off studying will leave me with a lot of free time, I rather stay busy especially with all that we are currently experiencing. I have decided to do a free course a week with The Open University. I started my first-course last week and only just finished. The course was titled – Making sense of mental health, and it was a great first course in my studying a course a week challenge.  

Studying a course a week

The course is a level 2 intermediate stage. It took me a few hours to complete the course but it takes most people 10 hours to complete the course. I really enjoyed studying this course. It is relevant to my degree in psychology and I always wanted to learn more about mental health. This course enabled me to make sense of the different mental health illnesses, how they get treated by different professionals and it also enabled me to get familiar with the terms used in diagnoses and treatment.

Reading a book a week

This week, I will be starting a new course and I am seriously looking forward to it. This week’s course is all about attachment in the early years. It is all about the research in the attachment in early childhood. I dedicate a few hours a day to study in between work, homeschooling the kiddies, and everything else. It is my way of staying on top of my learning. I am also still reading a book a week on my Amazon Kindle. The book I am reading this week is Conversations with God: An Uncommon Dialogue Book 2 by Neale Donald Walsch.
