doesn’t feel like a diet at all’
For some people, one cosmetic surgery procedure can lead to another…
Enter Kristina Rei. The 22-year old Russian nail technician became a viral sensation recently as reports of her record-breaking multiple lip enhancements spread across the internet. Starting when she was 17, Kristina has had 100 silicone injections in a bid to resemble her cartoon heroine Jessica Rabbit.
Kristina claims that the augmentations have helped “boost her confidence”, and that she is far from being done – in future, she plans to undergo not only more injections, but adjustments to her breasts, nose and ears. “I think I look fantastic and it makes me happy,” she is quoted as saying. “Sometimes strangers shout names at me in the street – like big lips – but I don’t care. I want to go more extreme. I want to look like a cartoon character. I am addicted to it. I love it.” (more…)
The Lowdown On Contracts
Contracts are always a pain. Companies don’t expect you to read pages and pages of jargon, so you end up signing on a dotted line for something you’re not 100% sure of.
When it comes to surgery, home or abroad, this is a risk you can’t afford to take.
Ask the surgery to provide a document that outlines every legal entitlement clearly, and make sure the agreed price is stated in there as well. Check it over, check it over again, and ask your friends and family to read through it too. Three points to look for are:
1. The Refund Policy – Make sure you’re able to get one. If you change your mind once you arrive, you’ll be upset if you’ve lost thousands of pounds for nothing. Even if you don’t have second thoughts, something else might come up that’ll stop you from going ahead. You never know what’s around the corner, so it’s important to know what options are open to you. Make sure you’ll receive a refund if the surgery doesn’t go ahead with the procedure; if the surgeon becomes ill or something happens to the building, you don’t want to be left out of pocket through no fault of your own.

Things to Ask the Surgeon
There are an endless number of questions to ask your chosen surgeon before the procedure. I can’t emphasise enough how important it is to ask away, because as well as being better prepared, you’ll find out how professional the surgery is.
If there’s any hint of frustration or hesitation in answering your questions, you know something’s not quite right with the surgery. This is your body, and your decision, so don’t settle for anything less than complete understanding. If you’re unclear of something, let them know. Here’s my personal checklist of questions you should ask the surgery, and the answers you should be getting in reply: (more…)
“When considering a procedure such as nose correction, one may be tempted to seek niche centres and facilities that deal especially with such specific treatments. With that being said, Secret Surgery’s relationship with surgeons the length and breadth of Europe should tell you all you need to know about our thoroughness.

Things To Ask Yourself
Once you’ve thought about your procedure and found a reliable hospital abroad, you may think you’re ready to go ahead with the decision. You may have researched your country of choice and even calculated the costs, but you should still give the idea a once over before you opt for surgery abroad. There are always questions to ask yourself before jumping in at the deep end.
Do you really know everything about your chosen surgery?
Different materials and techniques are used across the world, so checking a UK website for guidance doesn’t always give the complete picture. You need to know everything you can about your surgery in particular: you don’t want to wake up afterwards to surprises of any kind. Ask, ask, and ask again….. (more…)
