The Pros and Cons of Cosmetic Surgery

There was a time when cosmetic surgeries were associated with the rich and famous celebrities. But not anymore. The girl next door could have surgery if she wanted.

Cosmetic surgeries have recorded great progress in helping many women regain their lives, but of course there have been some down sides as well.

If you have been thinking of undergoing cosmetic surgery but you’re not sure about how it will affect your life, then here are some pros and cons that should help you make a decision.

 

Pros of Cosmetic Surgery
  1. Improves your looks

The major reason why a lot of people go for cosmetic surgery is to “improve their looks”. Cosmetic surgery has recorded a lot of success in helping people look and feel better.

Those who felt that their physical appearance needed something more than just a diet or beauty regimen to correct their flaws have been living happier and more fulfilling life after going through cosmetic surgery.

Correcting defects like a crooked nose or an ugly mole made a big difference in such people’s lives. Major issues like reducing or increasing your breast size, reducing weight with tummy tuck or liposuction has made people feel happier with their appearances.

 

  1. Makes you feel confident

Obviously once you are happy with your appearance, you feel more confident. Cosmetic surgery can help you get your confidence back by helping you correct what you want correcting.

 

  1. It will help you improve your health

Cosmetic surgery has helped people improve their health. There have been reports of ladies whose severe back pain was rectified with a breast reduction surgery. Another instance is when a sinus infection is corrected with a simple nose job. Such corrections can go a long way to improve people’s overall health and well-being.

Cons of Cosmetic Surgery
  1. Severe disappointments

After hearing a lot of great things about cosmetic surgeries, a lot of people go for it with extremely high expectations of the “perfect” shape, look, or feel. Sadly, it doesn’t always turn out that way. Cosmetic surgeons could get it so wrong sometimes, just watch Botched.

 

  1. Long recovery time

Cosmetic surgeries are made of extremely complicated procedures. And since it is surgery after all, it will take a lot of time for the scars, wounds and bruises to heal completely.

Deep incisions and cuts may take a long time to heal and sometimes they can be located in the most conspicuous of all places, for example on your nose if you go for a nose job.

 

  1. High cost of operation

It’s not surprising why a good number of those who go for cosmetic surgery are celebrities. Cosmetic surgeries do not come cheap. A breast enlargement surgery could go for as much as £7,000.

 

I think the decision to go for cosmetic surgery is a personal choice. So it is not something you can be told to have or not have. However, I don’t see myself going down that route for now. At the moment, I am very happy and comfortable in my skin, so no for now. That may change in a few years, but at the moment, I don’t see myself going under the knife for any reason.

Volume Colourist Mascara

This Volume Colourist Mascara by Rimmel reveals darker lashes with and without mascara! It darkens bare lashes in two weeks.

Here is the product description:

Rimmel London Volume Colourist Mascara is Rimmel’s first-ever mascara that, gradually over time, makes bare lashes darker and in an instant, the volumising formula loads lashes with jet-black impact.

Its semi-permanent lash-tint complex progressively blackens bare lashes every time you wear it so that, from 2 weeks onwards of regular usage, your naked lashes look darker from root to tip! Rimmel’s innovative multi-tasking formula is a unique combination of creamy, ultra-black lash volumising formula and Lash-Tint Complex with natural colorant which gives 24/7 impact.
