It’s long been known that men and women have turned to cosmetic surgery when the wrinkles started to appear in order to look a little more like they did in their hey days. But… whoever heard of turning to cosmetic surgery just to look your age?
Apparently, this is what more and more men and women in the US are doing every year. A US surgeon told ABC News that many of his patients are overworked men and women in good jobs who don’t want the surgery to eradicate their wrinkles, but ‘just to soften them’.
Perhaps it’s true that the daily stresses of modern life are making us wrinklier and more haggard as the years pass by. Is this really the case though?
I wonder whether, in the US, this is more to do with the fact that super-hot celebrities – whether they’re in their 20s or their 50s – are so commonly seen that people are beginning to think that looking normal at 45 is really looking old. ‘Young’ is the new normal.
My advice? Don’t get cosmetic surgery because you think you look older than you are. Get it because you don’t like the way you look! Stop comparing yourself to other people… or you will always find something to be unhappy with.
We’re pleased to announce that a recent feature in the UK’s top Woman magazine included a small spot with Angela Chouaib, MD and founder of Secret Surgery, who discussed the effects of social media on today’s society – specifically with relation to us body-conscious women!
The feature went on to describe how social media has slowly led to an increased awareness of facial ageing in society; obviously, as we regularly see patients looking to rejuvenate their faces and turn back the clock, we’re well-placed to talk about just how we think today’s women feel about their ageing looks.
The ever-increasing popularity of such anti-ageing treatments as face lifts, neck lifts, facial fillers and Botox obviously means that we’re growing less and less patient with our age! Of course, we don’t think there’s any problem with that – it just means we’re going to be the most beautiful middle-aged people the world has seen yet!
You can read the full column in Woman magazine, which should be on shelves in the UK, and have a quick look at our sneak peek picture of the spread here.
Turning back the years isn’t exactly an option, but it doesn’t mean that you can’t at least appear to knock a few off with the help of cosmetic surgery. Anti-ageing solutions are available everywhere these days, but few of them really work. At least with cosmetic surgery, you’re guaranteed results. If you’re hoping to stay youthful, here’s a list of some seriously good surgeries that you might want to consider:
- Face lifts: Yep, you guessed it – pretty much everyone has heard of the face lift. A face lift will reduce wrinkles and jowls, making your face appear younger, brighter, and fresher.
- Neck lift: Like a face lift… but on your neck! If you feel that the years have been unkind to your neck – and many of us do – then this might just be for you.
- Other lifts: You can also have a thigh lift, or an arm lift, or a breast lift, or a buttock lift… we do all kinds! A lift basically just tautens your skin to reduce wrinkles and sagging.
- Vaginal tightening: This might be for you if you’re concerned about how ageing has affected your sex life. Not only can this operation make sex more pleasurable for your partner, it can also make it better for you!
- Botox and fillers: If you’re looking for a simple fix, botox and fillers can soften the lines in your face and plump up your cheeks.
This is a lot of options – but try not to feel overwhelmed! If you just can’t make your mind up, then don’t worry: seeing one of our UK consultants is the best way to talk through your options and figure what procedure – or combination of procedures – is right for you.
The 51-year-old 80s icon tweeted a photograph of his new slim figure last week, which shows him looking rather good! We don’t doubt that he’s achieved something great through diet and exercise, but the photos show no loose skin – which indicates that he might have indulged in some lifts or tucks to get rid of any excess skin that might have been left behind.
In any case, Boy George is looking better than ever – better than he even did in the 80s, we think! It goes to show just how much difference you can make to your appearance through good habits, even if he did go under the knife to perfect the finishing touches!
No one likes a wrinkled Deirdre neckline. You know the sort we mean; veiny, puckered, wrinkled; the sort of neckline that tenses and wriggle with every minor movement of the lower face. Whether true or not, you can’t help but feel as though others are helplessly fixating on the feature that you find so deeply unattractive as you stare critically into the bathroom mirror. We all want to grow old gracefully, retaining a glow and a confidence that was so easy to find in our younger days, so what is the solution? A wimple? Perpetual turtle necks? Slogan t-shirts to detract attention from our sagging neckline?
Here at Secret Surgery, we offer a range of cosmetic procedures, including face and neck lifts. We understand that everyone has the right to hide their flaws and accentuate their attributes. We know that everyone is different, and that different parts of the body – different features – can affect our confidence. Similarly, different areas of the body can prove to be a source of discomfort.
This is why our highly-trained medical team offer cosmetic surgeries abroad in the form of platysmaplasty, or face and neck lifts. These treatments can cost you up to £4, 000 less than their UK equivalents, so you can turn back the hands of time, tightening up your face and neck, but without breaking the bank.
After surgery that lasts for typically 3-4 hours, you’ll have the neckline you’ve always wanted. For a smooth transition between jawline and neckline, for a plumper, un-puckered profile, consider such procedures as a viable alternative to a life of high collars and dodging nimbly out of family photos. The recovery period is only 4-6 weeks, meaning that in less than two months you can be feeling and looking your absolute best. Feel good for less with Secret Surgery, an affordable solution to your cosmetic surgery problems.
