A Smart Guide To Beauty Procedures

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and what you deem beautiful is at the tip of your fingers. We live in unprecedented times when the synthesis of medicine and technology allows us to modify our bodies in ways previously thought unimaginable. The fact that makes this even more appealing lies in the price tag – high-quality treatments are not reserved for stars and celebrities anymore.

Can makeup change your face?

Can we consider makeup a "technology"? Considering the array of tools and chemicals at our disposal, it's hard to argue against it, even though it sounds like a hyperbole. Furthermore, makeup has created an almost uniform standard of beauty, of "how" the face should be treated, that has been practically accepted around the globe. This standard mostly goes as follows – eyebrows are dark and distinct, the lines are strong, and the face is contoured nigh unto oblivion – its real shape is subdued as much as possible while the true accent is being put on the eyes. Even though you can call the process of putting on makeup a "beauty procedure", it is actually a temporary solution that can lower your self-esteem.

Are you comfortable with going under the knife?

Plastic surgery facilities are springing up around every corner and access to staggering variety surgical treatments has never been so easy. A matter of affordability also comes into play. These days, if you are dissatisfied with any part of your body, you can alter it for a fairly reasonable sum. When it comes to some standard deformities and birthmarks, the dilemma is practically non-existent. The question is – are you comfortable with going under the knife to alter the part of your body you personally dislike?

There are two things you need to do before you opt for such a step. First off, you need to spend a lot of time contemplating whether you should do it and consult with your immediate family and close friends. Maybe your wish to change something is unrealistic and a matter of insecurities that are not justified.

Secondly, you should probably do a psychological test that will determine whether you are in a sound mental condition to make such a decision. Such screening is necessary to protect both yourself and medical facilities because the number of plastic surgery customers grows on a daily basis.

What are the most popular treatments?

By far, the most popular treatments are breast surgeries. They don't have to be done solely due to the effects of gravity. Breast implants are popular among young women who want to be more curvaceous and new moms who had lived through years of pregnancy and breastfeeding. Furthermore, the breast procedure is not particularly expensive, and if you have a good health insurance package, a part of the cost can even be covered from that source. All you have to do is make sure you have found a good surgeon.

Facelifts are also a popular option, but this is almost exclusively reserved for older adults. Brazilian butt lift is popular among celebrities and it is increasingly sought after by people around the world. This is probably due to the fact that it combines two perfect surgeries into one – a hip and stomach liposuction and injecting that fat into your butt cheeks.

The most popular procedures among men right now are mostly reserved for the head area. These include, of course, botox injections, hyaluronic injections, skin tightening and laser hair removal. Also, in-office hair rejuvenation treatments are growing in popularity since premature hair 

Stay healthy!

The most important thing is to stay healthy, and this exclusively refers to mental health. People tend to develop unrealistic expectations and fantasies, so they return under the knife over and over again until it develops into a cosmetic surgery addiction. This affliction has to be taken seriously and it usually entails family intervention and regular visits to a psychiatrist.

Changing a thing or two about yourself does not indicate low self-esteem or lack of principles. Unfortunately, some people are still snarky when someone decides to go under a knife or try a new revolutionary treatment. This is really unfair when you consider what a paradigm shift plastic surgery has created. The fact of the matter is – if you have a tool, it's absurd not to use it.
