The Right Reasons to Choose Cosmetic Surgery

Posted by on Mar 22, 2019 in blog | Comments Off on The Right Reasons to Choose Cosmetic Surgery

After the announcement regarding Channel 4’s newly commissioned The Surjury TV show, plastic surgeons have expressed their concern over the message it delivers. The show sees young people put in front of a panel of judges who vote on whether or not each person should undergo cosmetic surgery.

The concern is that it trivialises the surgery and can potentially influence the younger generation to undergo procedures they may not even need. While cosmetic surgery can prove valuable at boosting confidence and self-esteem, when performed for the wrong reason, it could have negative consequences.

Here, we’ll look at the right reasons to choose cosmetic surgery.

You want to improve your confidence

One of the best reasons to opt for cosmetic surgery is to improve your confidence. However, it’s important to note that if you’re suffering from depression or a condition such as Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD), cosmetic surgery might not be the right choice for you.

While it can certainly improve confidence, if the problems stem from a mental illness, having the surgery may not provide you with the same level of confidence boost as you might expect. In fact, it could even make mental issues worse. So, it’s important to establish whether the surgery would simply boost your confidence, or whether you are using it as a solution for mental health issues.

You want to get it done for you

The ideal candidate for cosmetic surgery will have chosen to undergo the surgery after giving it serious thought. Is it something you’ve wanted to have done for a while now or did somebody suggest it for you?

A lot of people want to undergo cosmetic surgery to make somebody else happy, whether that be a partner or a family member. However, if you have cosmetic surgery to make somebody else happy, the chances are you won’t be happy with the results. It has to be something you want to have done, as well as something you’ve considered for a long time.

You want to look younger

Cosmetic surgery can do a lot of things, but one of its biggest advantages is helping you to look younger. There is a wide range of procedures, such as the facelift as well as many non-invasive ones that can minimise fine lines and wrinkles, as well as smooth out the complexion. A good cosmetic surgeon will ensure you still look like yourself, but just fresher and younger.

These are some of the best reasons to undergo cosmetic surgery. However, before deciding whether or not to go under the knife, it’s important to book a consultation with an experienced and qualified surgeon. During your consultation at Mr Nigel Horlock’s Southampton cosmetic surgery clinic, he will be able to assess your suitability for the procedure and whether you have realistic expectations about what surgery can achieve.

The Benefits of a Breast Reduction Procedure

Posted by on Mar 11, 2019 in blog | Comments Off on The Benefits of a Breast Reduction Procedure

Having larger, fuller breasts isn’t always considered a good thing. Not only can they lead to embarrassment for some women, but they can also prove to be uncomfortable too. Larger breasts can link to back pain and it can be difficult finding clothing that fits properly. So, in these cases, a breast reduction may be a great option. Here, we’ll look at some the breast reduction benefits you could enjoy.

Breast reduction benefits: relieve neck and back pain

If your breasts are particularly large, they could be causing neck or back pain. This is particularly true if you have quite a small frame. The weight of the breasts can put a lot of pressure onto the neck, back and shoulders, as well as contribute towards poor posture. So, undergoing a breast reduction could help to ease the pain and take a lot of pressure off the body.

Breast reduction benefits: resolve issues with asymmetry

Often, women with larger breasts experience some degree of breast asymmetry. One breast could be larger or smaller than the other, and they may hang slightly differently too. A breast reduction can help to resolve any issues with asymmetry you may have, resulting in a more aesthetically pleasing cleavage. It will help you to achieve a shape and size that you are most comfortable with.

Breast reduction benefits: expect to feel more confident

If your larger breasts impact your confidence, you won’t be experiencing the best quality of life. Having a reduction can help you regain your confidence, enabling you to wear more flattering clothing, partake in activities you may have otherwise avoided, and make you feel much more comfortable within your own skin.

Breast reduction benefits: enjoy perkier breasts

Did you know that having a breast reduction can also give you perkier breasts? All reduction procedures tend to include a breast lift. This means, not only will you get that smaller size that you want, but they will also look perkier too.

Breast reduction benefits: exercise more and breathe better

Bigger breasts can cause a range of issues, and not being able to perform some types of exercises are just one of them. For example, you may find it difficult running, biking, lifting weights or hiking when your breasts are larger. Therefore, having a reduction can open up a wide range of different exercises you can start to do.

As an additional benefit, you’ll also find it much easier to breathe. The weight of larger breasts can place pressure onto the lungs, potentially causing breathing difficulties. After having a reduction, you’ll, therefore, find your breathing is much better, which will, in turn, benefit your overall health.

These are just some of the great benefits a breast reduction procedure can provide. As you can see, the procedure offers both cosmetic and practical benefits. The fact it can also improve your health is definitely a reason to consider having the procedure done. However, before booking a breast reduction, it’s crucial you undergo a consultation to establish whether or not it’s the right option for you.

How Quickly Will I Recover from a Labiaplasty?

Posted by on Feb 23, 2019 in blog | Comments Off on How Quickly Will I Recover from a Labiaplasty?

Undergoing a labiaplasty can be incredibly daunting, but it’s typically a fairly quick and straightforward procedure. Carried out to reduce the size, or appearance of the labia, the procedure has become increasingly popular in recent years.

If you’re considering undergoing a labiaplasty, it’s a good idea to learn everything you can about the procedure, including the recovery process. In order to get the best results, it’s crucial you follow the labiaplasty recovery instructions provided by the surgeon. While each patient’s recovery is slightly different, here, you’ll discover how quickly you can expect to recover from a labiaplasty.

How long will a labiaplasty take to heal?

In total, it usually takes up to six weeks to heal fully from a labiaplasty. For the first few days after the procedure, you may experience some pain and discomfort. You’ll also likely experience bruising and swelling, though pain medication may be prescribed to help make the pain and discomfort more manageable. During these first few days, it’s crucial you get plenty of rest and walk around as little as possible.

Within a week, some bruising and swelling may still persist, but any pain should have largely subsided. You’ll usually be able to return to work within a week, and normal physical activity may be resumed. You may experience a lot of itchiness at this point, though it’s really important to avoid scratching the area while it heals.

Within three to four weeks after the surgery, you’ll be able to resume more strenuous physical activities. If you have dissolvable stitches, these should also have gone by this time. You may still be advised to avoid sexual intercourse and the use of tampons up until week six.

On week six, you should be 90% healed, and you’ll get to see part of the final results of the surgery. However, be aware that you won’t see the full results of the labiaplasty until around four to six months.

Will there be scarring after a labiaplasty?

Minor scarring will be present due to the small incisions made during the surgery. However, you’ll typically find that the scars blend into the labia tissue, as well as hide behind natural folds and wrinkles.

Top labiaplasty recovery tips to follow

The above advice is just a general outlook of what to expect from labiaplasty recovery. All patients recover differently, so it’s important to follow the advice given to you by the surgeon.

You’ll need to make sure you’re attending all of your follow-up appointments, and ensure you wear loose-fitting underwear until you’re fully healed. You may also want to avoid wiping the area with toilet paper, instead washing it with warm water. Ensuring you get plenty of rest is also important, and you may find it more comfortable to use a doughnut pillow during the first week after the surgery.

As you can see, the recovery process of a labiaplasty is fairly straightforward. Provided you follow your surgeon’s post-op advice, you should be fully healed within six weeks. Never try to resume normal activities until your surgeon approves it, otherwise, you could jeopardise the results.

New research into risks of smoking and cosmetic surgery

Posted by on Feb 15, 2019 in blog | Comments Off on New research into risks of smoking and cosmetic surgery

Cosmetic surgery has become extremely popular in today’s society, helping patients to alter or enhance practically any aspect of their appearance. However, as more people choose to go under the knife, it’s become more important than ever before to look into what makes an ideal candidate for surgery.

Did you know that certain lifestyle factors, such as smoking, for example, can impact the success of cosmetic surgery? While it is widely known that surgeons do ask patients to stop smoking prior to their procedure, few people actually know why. Now, new research has been carried out to determine the risks of smoking and cosmetic surgery. Here, we’ll look at what the research revealed, and the risks smoking presents when you go under the knife.

What did the research reveal?

The results of the new research, published within the Aesthetic Surgery Journal in January 2019, revealed that smokers were more likely to experience complications after surgery. Researchers analysed data from 129,007 patients, with just 8.2% of patients claiming to be smokers.

They discovered that smokers were at an increased risk of developing major complications. Those having body procedures, such as buttock augmentation and abdominoplasty procedures, experienced a complication rate of 2.9%, which is slightly higher than the 1.9% risk for non-smokers. The most significant risks identified were in smokers who underwent thigh lifts, with a major complication risk of 23.8% compared to just a 3.6% risk for non-smokers.

It was also revealed that smoking increased the risk of infections in the wound by a staggering 61%. Interestingly, there wasn’t an increased risk identified in smokers undergoing breast or facial cosmetic procedures.

Understanding nicotine and tissue necrosis

Surgeons have long known that smoking increases the risk of complications, which is why they always advise patients to stop smoking before and after the procedure. The question is, why does smoking increase the risks?

The main problem smoking can lead to after cosmetic surgery, is tissue necrosis. Although it is rare, smokers do need to be aware of the risks if they don’t quit prior to and after the procedure. It occurs when nicotine reduces, or completely stops, the blood flow to the tissues that were operated on. In the worst-case scenario, this can cause the tissue to die and simply fall off.

Combined procedures should be avoided

The new research also reveals the dangers of smokers undergoing combined procedures. Surgeons are advised to be wary of carrying out combined facial and body procedures on smokers due to the high risks involved. However, more research is required in order to establish better recommendations and to optimise outcomes.

Overall, this new research does confirm that smoking can have a direct impact on the results of a procedure, as well as increasing the risks of complications. Therefore, patients should strongly follow their surgeon’s advice in relation to quitting smoking before the procedure. Even after the procedure, it’s crucial to stop smoking until the wound has completely healed.

Fit for cosmetic surgery? 3 health considerations you should take into account

Posted by on Jan 22, 2019 in blog | Comments Off on Fit for cosmetic surgery? 3 health considerations you should take into account

Thanks to significant improvements within the industry over the past decade, cosmetic surgery is now considered a largely safe and common thing to have done. However, even the non-surgical procedures can still present numerous risks.

If you’re thinking of undergoing cosmetic surgery, there’s a lot of factors you’ll need to consider. One of which, is whether you’re actually fit enough for the surgery. Here, you’ll discover three health considerations you should take into account before opting to go under the knife.

  1. Your BMI

If you want to get the best possible outcome from your surgery, your BMI should ideally be below 30. Patients who are overweight are more susceptible to the risks and complications of surgery. Not only does the procedure itself pose more of a risk if you’re carrying excess weight, but the anaesthesia is riskier too.

So, if you are overweight, it would be a good idea to lose some before going under the knife. That way, the risks will be greatly reduced and you’re more likely to recover quickly.

  1. Existing health conditions

If you suffer from existing health conditions, these will need to be taken into account before you have cosmetic surgery. The two main conditions to be mindful of are diabetes and asthma.

If you suffer from diabetes, it can lead to issues with either high or low blood glucose after the surgery. This can impact how quickly the wounds heal. So, you’ll need to make sure your blood glucose levels are well controlled going into the surgery.

Those with asthma will also need to make sure the condition is under control. If it’s not, you could experience a flare up either during or after the surgery. It’s best to see your doctor a week prior to the surgery to ensure you’re in the best possible health to go ahead with it.

  1. Smoking and drinking

If you smoke, you’re going to need to stop at least six weeks prior to the surgery. You’ll also need to continue to not smoke for six weeks after the surgery. There have been a lot of studies carried out which have shown smokers need an average of 33% more anaesthetic and 23% more pain medication after surgery than non-smokers. Nicotine is known to constrict the blood vessels and restrict blood supply to the tissues and organs which can significantly slow down wound healing.

If you drink a lot of alcohol, you’ll also want to quit approximately two weeks before the surgery. Alcohol increases the risk of bleeding and can negatively interact with the anaesthetic. So, quitting a couple of weeks before going under the knife is a sensible idea.

The above are just three health considerations to take into account before undergoing cosmetic surgery. Your plastic surgeon will be able to assess your general health and make recommendations on anything you’ll need to improve before undergoing cosmetic surgery, which is why the cosmetic surgery consultation is such an important part of the process.

RealSelf release list of 2018’s most researched cosmetic surgery ops

Posted by on Jan 14, 2019 in blog | Comments Off on RealSelf release list of 2018’s most researched cosmetic surgery ops

Leading cosmetic surgery information site RealSelf, has revealed a list of the most researched cosmetic surgery ops in 2018. Entitled ‘The RealSelf 2018 Aesthetics Trend Report’, it highlights the increase in popularity of non-surgical procedures such as anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers. It also goes on to list the top ten surgical procedures researched throughout the year.

Here, we’ll look at the results of the report, along with some of the key procedures patients are most interested in.

Most popular cosmetic surgery procedures

  • Breast augmentation: It’s unsurprising breast augmentation was one of the most researched procedures in 2018. It has been one of the more popular surgical procedures carried out for decades. These days, the techniques used to enhance the breasts have changed dramatically, with more natural methods favoured.
  • Tummy tuck: The abdominoplasty also remains a popular procedure, enabling patients to eliminate excess skin and fat in the abdominal area. It provides more significant results than liposuction alone, though it should never be used as a replacement for proper diet and exercise.
  • Brazilian butt lift: One of the newest procedures to trend last year was the Brazilian Butt Lift. Celebrities such as Kim Kardashian made the procedure famous, though patients do need to be aware that it comes with significant risks and the advice from leading plastic surgery organisation is not to undergo this procedure at this time.
  • Rhinoplasty: Nose jobs are another procedure which has remained consistently popular over the years. Rhinoplasty procedures can help to alter the size, shape and volume of the nose. When performed correctly, a rhinoplasty can change your entire facial appearance and the results are long-lasting.
  • Liposuction: When it comes to fat removal, liposuction is one of the best procedures to have done. However, these days most surgeons focus on targeted liposuction which aims to contour the body, rather than eliminate a large amount of excess fat. If you are considering having liposuction, you need to understand that it isn’t designed to help you shed a lot of weight. Instead, it is better used to combat stubborn pockets of fat which aren’t shifting with diet and exercise alone.
  • Eyelid surgery: Eyelid lift surgery is designed to reduce bagginess under the eyes, as well as remove excess skin from the top eyelid. It can be particularly useful for older patient as it can help to improve the eyesight.
  • Breast reduction: While many patients are still opting for breast enlargements, there’s an increasing number of people looking to reduce the size of their breasts. A breast reduction can be useful for those suffering from aches and pains due to larger breasts. It’s also a popular choice for those seeking a more natural, balanced look.

These are just some of the most popular cosmetic procedures consumers researched throughout 2018. If you are interested in undergoing any of the procedures featured above, book a consultation with an expert surgeon today. They will help you to establish whether you actually need the procedure, and the risks and complications you need to be aware of.

WWI and its impact on cosmetic surgery

Posted by on Dec 17, 2018 in blog | Comments Off on WWI and its impact on cosmetic surgery

Cosmetic surgery has become deeply ingrained within society today, allowing us to change practically any aspect of our appearance. From rhinoplasty and liposuction to breast augmentation or the facelift – there’s a huge choice of procedures available. However, did you know that many of the procedures that are so popular today, were developed and benefited greatly from advances made in World War I?

Here, we’ll look at how WWI impacted cosmetic surgery, turning it into the phenomenon it is today.

How modern cosmetic surgery was born

The events of World War I had a horrific impact on humanity and have recently been the focus of much renewed interest as we celebrate the 100 year anniversary of the end of the war. Although the exact figure is unknown, it is estimated that a staggering 20 million lost their lives and a further 21 million were wounded. It was the worst event in human history and surgeons were required to develop new techniques in order to deal with the catastrophic injuries presented.

By the time the war had ended, 735,487 British troops were discharged due to severe injuries. Of these, 16% of the injuries affected the face, with over a third being classified as severe. This often left the survivor with serious deformities, making it difficult for them to eat, drink and even breathe properly.

WWI's impact on cosmetic surgeryIt was Harold Gillies, a young New Zealand Ear, Nose and Throat surgeon, who decided to develop new techniques to repair these severe deformities. So, in 1916, he set up the first plastic surgery centre in Aldershot within the Cambridge Military Hospital. Expecting around 200 patients upon its opening, Gillies was instead met with over 2000 patients to treat.

A process of trial and error

Although some work that was carried out at the centre was based on previous work in India, the majority of techniques were developed via trial and error. This led to one of the main techniques, the pedicle skin graft, to be introduced.

The graft involved separating a piece of skin without detaching it, from a healthy area of the body. It was then stitched inside a tube, before being attached to the affected area. The patient would need to wait for a set amount of time for the blood flow to develop before the suture was detached and the tube was opened for the flat skin to be stitched over the area.

The results from this procedure weren’t perfect, but they did drastically improve the lives of the injured soldiers. Even after the war ended, procedures were carried out for years and they were continuously improved.

The advancement of anaesthesia

Another of the major developments in the field of cosmetic surgery was in anaesthesia. Due to the level of work required to repair severe facial and head injuries, better anaesthetic was required to make the procedures bearable. Anaesthesia was actually developed into a speciality area and the people administering it were properly trained.

A properly trained and qualified cosmetic surgeon in the UK is known as a plastic and reconstructive surgeon as the latter will inform and enhance surgery performed for aesthetic improvements to the face or body.

What’s the difference between a breast lift and a breast reduction?

Posted by on Dec 5, 2018 in blog | Comments Off on What’s the difference between a breast lift and a breast reduction?

When it comes to altering the breasts, there are several cosmetic breast surgery procedures available to patients. Breast augmentation with breast implants remains the most popular procedure in the UK, but the breast lift and breast reduction are excellent options for women looking to change the position of the breasts or alter their size and shape.

The question is, how can patients tell which procedure they need? To help you make the best decision, below you’ll discover the difference between a breast lift and a breast reduction.

What is a breast lift?

Also referred to as mastopexy, a breast lift is used to correct sagging breasts. The procedure supports and reshapes the breast tissue, helping to produce a more youthful look and it can be used to restore shape and volume after breastfeeding, due to age or after weight loss.

The position of the breasts is altered and can result in the breasts appearing smaller. No tissue is removed, only excess skin and the nipples and areola are also typically moved and made to look smaller for a more natural finish.

What is a breast reduction?

Also referred to as a reduction mammoplasty, a breast reduction significantly reduces the volume of the breasts. The procedure involves the removal of breast tissue, excess skin and fat.

Once the procedure has been performed, many women notice a lift in the breasts too. Like a breast lift, the areola can also be reduced.

The difference between a breast lift and a breast reduction

As both a breast lift and a breast reduction can result in smaller, perkier breasts, how can you tell which one is right for you? Well, it all comes down to your reasons for wanting the procedure.

If your breasts are typically quite heavy, a breast reduction would be the best option. This is because it would remove much more volume than a breast lift, which largely aims to lift up the breasts, rather than minimise them. If the issue is more to do with correcting sagging of the breasts rather than their size, then a breast lift procedure would be the better option.

It’s worth noting that you can undergo a combination of a breast lift and a breast reduction. Many women find that a combination approach gives them the results they are looking for. However, in order to determine which one is right for you, it is important to undergo a consultation. Southampton plastic surgeon Mr Nigel Horlock will be able to assess your needs and identify the best procedure to help you achieve the desired results.

Forty Percent of UK Adults Considering Undergoing a Cosmetic Surgery Op

Posted by on Nov 21, 2018 in blog | Comments Off on Forty Percent of UK Adults Considering Undergoing a Cosmetic Surgery Op

Southampton cosmetic surgeryA new survey has revealed 40% of UK adults are considering undergoing a cosmetic surgery op in the next 12 months. The survey, conducted by The Harris Poll for RealSelf, shows that millennials are driving the trend, with 62% of adults aged 18-34 considering non-surgical treatments in the next year.

Here, we’ll look at why cosmetic surgery rates are increasing and the types of procedures which are proving to be the most popular.

Why are cosmetic surgery rates increasing?

There are a number of factors driving the increase in cosmetic surgery popularity. Firstly, procedures and techniques have been consistently improved and developed over the years. This means going under the knife is no longer as risky as it used to be. Many treatments are also non-invasive, meaning they’re quick and simple to carry out and require very little downtime.

The younger generation is also helping to improve attitudes toward cosmetic procedures. While it was once something to be ashamed of, these days it’s common for young people to undergo numerous procedures. There is less and less stigma related to cosmetic surgery these days and even the rates of male plastic surgery are increasing year upon year.

Social pressures, such as social media, also play a role. The selfie generation has placed a lot of pressure onto young people to always look their best. Cosmetic surgeons have seen a huge increase in the number of people enquiring about procedures which will make them look better in selfies.

Non-invasive treatments lead the way

The study revealed that the top treatments Brits are considering undergoing in the next 12 months are laser hair removal and cosmetic dentistry. Approximately 44% of those surveyed claimed they were looking into cosmetic dentistry such as teeth whitening, while 29% were considering laser hair removal. Other non-surgical treatments leading the way include facial aesthetic treatments such as dermal fillers and muscle relaxing injections.

It is unsurprising non-invasive treatments topped the list due to both how they are perceived and the minimal recovery times experienced.

Tummy tuck and facelift top surgical procedures

In terms of surgical procedures, the tummy tuck leads the way with 31% considering the treatment. This is followed closely by a facelift, liposuction, neck lift and breast augmentation. Improvements within the techniques used for surgical procedures are largely behind their increase in popularity.

Things to consider before undergoing cosmetic surgery

While cosmetic procedures have improved over the years, it is still important to think carefully before going under the knife. When done for the right reasons, cosmetic surgery can boost confidence, help to eliminate embarrassment and help to give you a greater quality of life. However, when done for the wrong reasons, patients could end up regretting their decision.

It’s also crucial to ensure you’re choosing a reliable, qualified cosmetic surgeon. Any type of surgery is risky, and an inexperienced surgeon puts you at even greater risk. So, be sure to opt for a plastic surgeon who has an exceptional reputation and years of experience.

If you’re thinking of undergoing a cosmetic procedure, book a consultation today to discuss your options.

Plastic Surgery Adverts Banned by ASA

Posted by on Nov 9, 2018 in blog | Comments Off on Plastic Surgery Adverts Banned by ASA

Cosmetic surgery advert bannedThe breast enlargement adverts shown in-between this year’s TV hit Love Island, caused outrage across the country. Now, the ASA has banned the plastic surgery advert from ever being aired again, claiming they contribute towards a woman’s poor self-image, glamourizing surgery.

Below, we’ll look at why plastic surgery ads are potentially harmful and what led to the ban being enforced.

Why all the controversy?

Attitudes towards cosmetic surgery have changed dramatically in recent years. It has become much more acceptable for both men and women to go under the knife to alter their appearance. However, while the stigma behind having plastic surgery may have disappeared, care still needs to be taken to protect young, vulnerable patients.

The MYA cosmetic surgery ad ran from May to June during the ad breaks for popular series Love Island. It showed young women dancing, laughing and posing around a swimming pool, on a boat and on a beach. Its voiceover declared that all of the women had undergone breast enlargement surgery and now felt amazing.

It managed to receive 17 complaints, one of which came from the Mental Health Foundation. It was claimed that the ad exploited the insecurities of young women, as well as trivialising the procedure. It gave the impression that women wouldn’t be happy and live the kind of carefree life shown in the ad, unless they underwent the surgery. The ASA agreed with the complaints, banning the ad completely.

How plastic surgery ads could prove harmful

The main risk these types of adverts pose according to the BAPPS, is the damage to the body image of vulnerable and young patients. With so much pressure placed onto young people to look perfect, the last thing they need is to be bombarded with ads regarding cosmetic surgery.

While there is no denying that plastic surgery can be a positive, life-changing experience, when carried out for the wrong reasons it can prove potentially damaging; especially to those with mental health issues. Often, surgery doesn’t fix the underlying issues when patients are suffering from a mental illness. This means they could end up regretting their decision, or it could even potentially make them feel even worse about themselves.

Patients need to be aware of how serious cosmetic surgery is

Another issue with the breast augmentation ad, was that it trivialised the procedure. It may be one of the most commonly performed treatments, but it is still a major surgery. Like any procedure, it comes with risks and complications. It isn’t a small decision to make and that really does need to be made clearer to patients considering having it done.

When performed for the right reasons, plastic surgery can be extremely beneficial. Due to the sheer number of different treatments available these days, patients are able to alter practically every aspect of their appearance. However, it needs to be their choice, without any external pressures, to go through with the procedure. The banning of ads such as the one shown during Love Island, can therefore only be a positive thing.
