Sick of Wearing Shades to Cover Droopy Eyes?

ImageDroopy, baggy eyes are a burden to us all; I can’t imagine any woman who’s never caught a glimpse of herself in the mirror looking a little too much like a pitbull terrier; and it’s not just us! I know for a fact that men suffer from droopy eyes too – along with droopy other things…

Unfortunately, gravity makes it mark on everything, and eyelids are no exception. Too many of us end up wearing shades on cloudy days or looking a little like we’ve spent the night with a shot of rum in one hand and an all-night club entry stamp on the other.

That’s why eyelid correction surgery is all the rage; more and more women (and men!) are discovering that baggy eyes can be a thing of the past – who needs to wake up in the morning feeling like they’d be more attractive with a paper bag over their head? Eyelid correction surgery is simple, quick, and effective, and it’s the easiest way to shave 10 years off your age without breaking the bank or committing identity fraud.

If you reckon eyelid correction surgery is for you – feel free to get in touch! There are plenty of ladies here who feel your pain when it comes to baggy eyes and droopy lids.

Boobs, glorious boobs

before and after breast implantsBig, little and ‘wonky’. Breasts come in all shapes and sizes and their diversity is to be celebrated.

So why all the fuss about getting a boob job? One simple reason: it’s all about your happiness. We don’t just deal with women who would like to go up a cup-size; we serve a vast range of clients who elect for a boob job for numerous reasons.

It’s amazing how many people hear the word ‘boob job’ and think of vacuous silicon-enhanced celebs.  Cosmetic surgery is not about enhancing women to the point of absurdism. Here are just three reasons why you may opt for breast surgery, and no, pursuing a career as a glamour model isn’t one of them.

Number one: weight loss. With obesity levels rising in the UK, it’s an amazing feat to shed those stones and pounds. After all that hard work, you’ll feel fantastic on the inside, but what of your body’s adaptation to the weight loss? Well, many women find that putting on the pounds increases their breast size.  The downside to this is that the excess skin remains once their breasts have diminished in size.

Number two: breast feeding. Bundles of joy and boob-wreckers: yes, feeding your children au natural will have noticeable and unfortunate downsides. It’s beautiful and wonderful, but once they’ve started to develop their first teeth, your breasts may feel the pinch.

Third? Ageing. We’ve all heard the jokes about everything travelling South, but in this day and age you don’t have to be a hostage to the force of gravity. With many of us maintaining an active sex life even into old age, breast surgery can boost your self-esteem and enhance his sex drive.

Angela Chouaib, MD and founder of Secret Surgery Ltd says “Whether it’s a breast uplift, or mastopexy, all of these changes can be rectified with ease. Skin excess can be cut off, the gland lifted, and the nipple repositioned, giving you the firm and perky breasts that you once knew so well. You can opt for implant insertion during the same procedure if you choose, but the size of your breasts is completely up to you. It’s not about achieving an DD cup size: it’s quality over quantity, and your happiness over anyone else’s”.

There’s No Need to Worry about Droopy Eyes Again…

eyelid correctionDo you sometimes look at yourself in the mirror and wonder what happened to those bright, almond-shaped eyes you remember from younger days? Drooping eyelids are something that affect us all as the years pile on – they’re nothing to be ashamed of, and yet there’s a good reason to do something about them.

Procedures for eyelid correction are easy as your monthly pedicure, and can deal with both the upper eyelids and lower eyelids (which you might think of as ‘bags’ under your eyes). Both procedures require small incisions and the removal of excess tissue from around the eyes, and the area should be completely recovered after just a few months.

Of course, we’re not the only ones who can do something about your droopy eyes – keeping away from cigarettes, alcohol and too much exposure to the sun in the mean time will help you to slow down the acceleration of your baggy eyes and regain some of the glimmer of youth.

Sometimes it’s difficult to pinpoint the areas of your face that show the most age; if you’re not sure whether eyelid correction is for you, try covering the rest of your face and estimating your own age based on the eyes alone – you might find the number’s a little bigger than you think (or would like to think).

Surgery Obsessed Superman

We all know what we would change about our appearance if we had the option. Nose, boobs, lips, thighs – for the most part, anyone considering plastic or cosmetic surgery is eager to look like the best version of themself.

Occasionally, however, the media reports bizarre stories where people opt for surgeries to transform themselves completely – into completely different people.

Take Herbert Chavez for example. At 35, Chavez underwent chin augmentation, a nose job, silicone lip injections and thigh implants. His goal? To look like Superman, complete with costume and appropriate hairstyling.

Herbert Chavez is not alone. Apparently there has been a recent spate of people attempting to look as close to their celebrity of choice as possible. If you can’t be one, be a lookalike, seems to be the new mantra.

At his Beverly Hills clinic, Dr Nicholas Chugay specialises in transforming ordinary people into celebrity body (or merely facial) doubles. He says most clients start off with some physical similarities to a well-known personality, but with a chin cleft here or some liposculpture there, he can transform them into a believable doppelgänger.

Laura Steele spent a fortune sculpting her face and body to resemble that of Cher, a singer who has had a lot of work done herself. Steve Erhard has had a string procedures – setting him back £20,000 – to make himself look like Michael Jackson.

According to Dr Chugay, dead personalities are particular popular. Marilyn Monroe is a constant favourite, as is Elvis. Chugay claims that a lot of his clients seek no financial gain from their lookalike status; they do not wish to impersonate their favourite celebrity. Rather, as Chugay understands it, the transformation is to be seen as an homage to the dead or living celebs.

Revenge Plastic Surgery

revenge cosmetic surgeryDivorce is on the rise and partners are not dutiful: these are the lines we read every day in the media. To seek revenge on your ex by having plastic surgery; now that’s a little less common. Or is it?

A growing number of women, and even a handful of men, are opting for cosmetic change to combat a partner’s infidelity.

It’s prudent to get the context right: this phenomenon is seemingly exclusive to Beverly Hills. According to plastic surgeon Dr. John Anastasatos, one third of his patients are immediate post-divorce cases.

There are, of course, many different motives behind the desire to make oneself over, but the predominant reason for going under the knife is revenge, says one patient. Elizabeth’s story is in many ways typical of the unrealistic lifestyle in California. Her husband’s confession of adultery drove her to Dr. Renato Calabria, another famous surgeon offering post-trauma surgery. He gave her a short-lived boost in the form of effusive praise and flattery, before handing her the estimate for the extensive list of procedures. Of course, Elizabeth initially wondered how on earth she was going to cough up the cash. ‘I went right home and sold my wedding ring to finance the whole thing’ she said; ‘I couldn’t do it fast enough!’

Angela Chouaib, MD at Secret Surgery Ltd in the UK, said ‘People get cosmetic surgery for all manner of reasons.  It would be wrong to conclude that some reasons are ‘righter’ than others.  Nevertheless, it is the duty of the surgeon to ensure that the patient is in the right state of mind for undergoing the procedure, and is not rushing into it without having thought things through.’

The work she underwent is confidential, as is the case with many women opting for ‘vengeance’ surgery. You see, many go on from their messy marriages to take up a ‘cougar’ lifestyle: tight-lipped about their age and surgical history, they want to date younger men without the burden of their past. They’re looking for a boost, something to pump up their self-confidence; abusive and untrustworthy partnerships will undoubtedly do that. This much is true, and there’s nothing wrong with needing a lift; physical, or emotional, we all need to feel good.

What is debatable, is whether these surgeons should be recommending therapy instead. You have to question why surgeons agree to nip, tuck and alter these women, when most are preened to perfection already. Monopolising on people’s low self-esteem should not be the business of surgery. Making sure they have the right motivation; now that’s what Beverly Hills needs.

Why Sexy Scots are flocking to Poland for Tummy Tucks

The reasoning behind why Secret Surgery Scotland has chosen Poland as it’s number one destination for Tummy tuck surgery.

Our highly-specialised professionals select a procedure with the utmost care and thoroughness. Your needs are our blueprint. Working with the use of proven, technologically advanced preparations, not to mention state-of-the-art equipment, we guarantee excellent results and full protection.

Before and after Tummy TuckOur Facilities

Concerned about foreign facilities? You needn’t be. Our EMC Specialist Hospital and Outpatient Clinic in Wroclaw has won first place 2 years in a row in the ranking of Polish private hospitals. Built in 2001, the hospital’s modern architecture, cutting-edge equipment and enforcement of international standards have allowed it to achieve the internationally-renowned ISO 9001-2000 Global Certificate. No, not the crumbling shack many cynics conjure in their mind’s eye when the words ‘foreign’ and ‘surgery’ are twinned. Let me tell you a little bit more about Tummy tucks and Secret Surgery Scotland.

The tradition of Polish health spas dates back to the 13th century. Polish spas are not only for people with health problems. It is also for those who seek peace and quiet for resting. Year round, more than 40 localities offer a gentle climate,  Poland’s medical tourism is growing. The Germans, British, Scandinavians, and Canadians most frequently visit Poland…

What is a tummy tuck (Abdominoplasty)?

Pregnancy is one thing that can leave you with unattractive folds of skin around your middle. The natural ageing process and significant weight loss are two others. A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is designed to give you back your youthful flat stomach by tightening those abdominal muscles and removing excess skin. An appealing side effect of tummy tuck surgery is that some or if not all stretch marks and existing scars are removed as part of the process.

Why have a tummy tuck?

What person doesn’t yearn to have a flat firm tummy with beautiful smooth skin? The bad news for all of us is that even with a disciplined fitness regime, you’re likely to find that time eventually takes its toll. Whatever your own reasons for wanting a tummy tuck, the decision to go ahead with this procedure needs careful consideration. We would strongly encourage you to chat through any doubts you might have with one of our team of friendly advisors here at Secret Surgery Scotland before you commit to treatment. These advisors are here to help answer any questions you have, without applying any kind of sales pressure, so that you can be 100% confident with your decision if you do eventually proceed with surgery.

Your Tummy Tuck operation

Your chosen consultant surgeon will make a neat cut just below the bikini line. The skin is lifted and this allows the surgeon to remove the required amount of fat and tissue as well as tighten the muscles if necessary. Finally, the cut will be stitched back together and wrapped with bandages.  The operation will take place under general anaesthetic , usually lasting 3-4 hours. Which means you will need to spend  a night in hospital. This is where Secret Surgery Scotland differs because we insist you spend 2 days in hospital and a further 10 days under the doctor’s control. We take after care very seriously.


After your operation, you should plan to take two weeks off work to rest at home and give your body the chance to recover properly. Strenuous activity of any kind will need to be avoided for at least 6 weeks  after that. Feel free to use painkillers if you experience any discomfort after you leave hospital, and you should also expect a little swelling and bruising in those early stages. Try and be patient.


There’s nothing worse than unexpected charges that you don’t find out about until after the event, and that’s why we make sure you know the full cost of your surgery before you make the decision to proceed. We have a 3 tier pricing structure and it’s all there in black and white. There are no hidden costs when you book through Secret Surgery Scotland. The price you see is the price you pay!
