Changing attitudes to cosmetic surgery

by admin

Medicine is a field that evolves at a very fast pace. That includes cosmetic surgery. The techniques we use are at the cutting edge – the most modern and the very best options available. We can do things that were simply impossible a few decades ago and it’s fair to say that cosmetic surgery is both far safer and generates much better results than it once did.

Many people are surprised when they learn that breast enlargement actually has a very long history. It has been performed since the late 19th Century using both fatty tissues and implants made from various materials. However, it wasn’t until relatively recently that it became safe and affordable enough for ordinary women. It’s also far more effective today. Nowadays we have a much better idea of what works and what doesn’t and how to achieve a precise result.

In the 80s and 90s cosmetic surgery was booming, but it was something to be concealed. Nobody quite wanted to admit to needing tummy tuck surgery, or own up to being old enough that wrinkles had started to make themselves known. The results of most procedures weren’t quite as good as the real thing and there was something of a stigma attached to the whole concept.

Now, times have changed. Surgical techniques have improved out of sight and new technologies like Vaser lipo mean was can do a lot more in less invasive ways. The stigma is also gone, replaced with a more practical attitude- if you have a problem that’s bothering you, fix it!
