Cosmetic procedures are on the rise in the UK. More and more of us would consider having work done. More and more of us are having work done. In 2013, cosmetic surgeons performed over 50,000 procedures on us Brits. It seems that we no longer fear going under the knife. That’s understandable, as cosmetic work is safer than ever. We’ve lived with modern plastic surgery since the First World War. It’s obvious that procedures are less troublesome than before. Practice makes perfect, after all.
People have a lot of assumptions about plastic surgery. They think that it’s only for women and that it’s all about vanity. That’s not true. More men are having surgery than in the past. Vanity isn’t always an issue. Body image isn’t something that we all understand. We all want to feel comfortable in our skin. A lot of people overlook that fact. Comfort breeds confidence, and there’s nothing worse than not having confidence in yourself. That can undermine your whole life. How we look is important for us all, and it affects us all.
In today’s world of unrealistic Photoshopping, our faith in our bodies is falling fast. Cosmetic procedures can help to restore our confidence in the way we look. One area that people often overlook here is hair transplants. People who are losing their hair are often the victim of cruel jokes. We see it as acceptable to mock those who are going bald. In reality, that’s not the case.
