Whenever you are investing your money into something whether it is getting your car fixed or getting your hair cut you would only trust people who are qualified. So why think any differently of your surgeons? There are many cases where people have undergone ‘black market’ surgeries and have lost limbs or even lives because of the deadly procedures. Is not fully researching your surgeon or the clinic worth it? Here are some tips on how to find the right cosmetic surgeon in London.

What qualifications should a cosmetic surgeon in London have?

When researching your potential surgeon there is a couple of things you should look for. One of the most important things is making sure they have a genuine qualification in the type of surgery you will want. This is to make sure you will be fully safe in their hands. It is not necessary but it is preferred if the surgeon is a part of the BAPS (British Association of Plastic Surgery) or BAAPS (British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery) This shows that they are members of a community of well-trusted surgeons. Your surgeon must also be registered by the GMC (General Medical Council’s.) Surgeons who are registered by GMC are trusted surgeons who have gone through the certain testing process to test their safety. All clinics and surgeons should be assessed by the CQC (Care Quality Commission) which is a company that ensures all clinics are hygienic, safe and trustworthy. Lastly, any good surgeon should be able to have a GP referral.


How should a cosmetic surgeon in London treat you?

When you have a consultation with your surgeon you should feel comfortable and relaxed. You should never feel rushed during your consultation; your surgeon should give you his full attention and not be constantly looking at the time as this can be very off-putting. You should also judge your potential surgeon by the way they speak to you. There should be a perfect balance of professionalism as well as informality. This is so you are able to know what you need to know but in a way, you will understand. Your surgeon should also be able to listen to what you say without judgement or interrupting. When they are interrupting they may not be able to know what they will need to as well as you may feel muted. A trustworthy surgeon should always discuss the risk of any procedure with you during the consultation. This is so you are fully aware of what could possibly go wrong during surgery. However, before any surgery, you should always do a lot of research to make sure that the surgery is right for you as well as the surgeon. This is because the surgeon may not have a good reputation or you may find a better alternative surgery which may fit you better. So always research to find the perfect cosmetic surgeon in London.

What are reconstructive procedures?

Reconstructive procedures are cosmetic procedures to rectify any abnormalities to any area. For example, if someone had broken their nose, leaving it bent and out of shape a cosmetic procedure would be considered to restore its shape. Another example would be someone suffered burns to areas of skin and would need cosmetic surgery to repair the skin.

What is available?

New technologies are being developed for people who require different types of reconstructive procedures.

For burn surgery, a machine learning approach is being developed to determine healing times of burns which can be a useful tool to assess burn depth. Algorithms are also being developed to allow rapid prediction of the percentage of body surface burned which can be an important piece of information for patient resuscitation and surgical planning. Not only can skin be restored from surgery but also lost hair from burning injuries can also be restored through cosmetic surgery.

For aesthetic surgery there are machine learning developments to also be applied to cosmetic surgery, to predict and simulate outcomes of aesthetic facial surgery and reconstructive breast surgery which can be an aid to women or men who have suffered from breast cancer and wish to re-create breasts which may have been affected. Surgeries such as Breast augmentation could be used for those who need breast reconstruction, which could even be done naturally through using fat from another area of the body to then be placed into the breast area to add to lost breast tissue. For alternative cosmetic surgeries for those that have suffered from a broken nose, for example, may have experienced a change in shape and may experience trouble breathing may opt for Rhinoplasty surgery to rectify the misshapen nose.

Earlier this year BAAPS published new statistics in their press release ‘Tweak not tuck‘ claiming it to be the ideal cosmetic surgery trend amongst Britons in 2015. This has given rise to a demand for subtle, anti-ageing treatments such as fat transfer, face lift and eyelid surgery making them one of the most wanted procedures of 2015, however, breast augmentation remaining at the top of the chart among women. Figures show a total of 45,406 of cosmetic surgery procedures performed, with women getting 91% and men getting 9% of all cosmetic surgery procedures. Cosmetic surgery procedures of 2015 as ranked:

Men & Women Combined

  • Breast Augmentation – 8,619

  • Blepharoplasty – 7,752

  • Face/Neck Lift – 6,402

  • Breast Reduction – 5,528

  • Liposuction – 4,627

  • Rhinoplasty – 3,690

  • Fat Transfer – 3,155

  • Abdominoplasty  – 2,713

  • Browlift – 1,978

  • Otoplasty – 942

According to the BAAPS President, and consultant surgeon Michael Cadier it is clear that people want a refreshed or youthful look with cosmetic surgery procedures rather than alterations to their appearance. Treatments such as liposuction also continue to rise as many non-surgical fat removal methods result in being ineffective in many cases. This change in trends hopefully has a positive impact and eliminates misconceptions associated with cosmetic surgery. As pioneers of cosmetic surgery procedures, it is very refreshing to learn that people are being more cautious and educated regarding cosmetic surgery. Sadly, botched cases cannot be completely eliminated but as plastic surgeons we can only use the safest methods to guarantee the best results expected from us. After all, mistakes happen… miss universe 2015 mistake

If you think it’s too late to look good for the holiday season, here are 6 instant result cosmetic surgery procedures that will change your mind.

1. Rhinoplasty Like any other cosmetic surgery procedures, bruising and swelling is unavoidable. Luckily, if you want a more appealing look for your nose by Christmas, rhinoplasty falls in the instant result cosmetic surgery category. You can expect the bruising to last for just about 1 week after which the stitches and cast on your nose can also be removed. You can expect to see the difference almost immediately and will look even better over time. By the start of the holiday season, your newly shaped nose will be ready.

2. Blepharoplasty Don’t let your hooded eyes hold you back from experimenting with eyeshadows this Christmas. Blepharoplasty can help you enhance your eye crease and give you instant results in just about 1-2 weeks. Any swelling and bruising should heal up by the second week and you should be feeling and looking presentable by then. Pink scars may remain for a bit longer but that can be easily covered up with make-up giving you a chance to experiment looks you never dared to try before.

3. Anti-wrinkle injections Probably an expected instant result cosmetic surgery procedure, it only takes a few days for its effect to kick in. You can expect to see quite a lot of difference on the first week itself and expect a much smoother look over time.

4. Lip augmentation The result is also almost instant with lip augmentation as swelling heals within 1 week after being injected. You can expect the injected areas to be presentable even without make-up immediately after the healing process. Your plump lips will be mistletoe-ready for the holiday season.

5. Otoplasty Some people are able to go back to their normal routine after the first week of surgery and by the second week, some feel comfortable to be in a social environment as the swelling should subside by then.

6. Ear repair surgery Ear repair surgery gives the most instant result out of all the cosmetic surgery procedures as there is no need to even take a day off from work unless you think you need it. You will experience very little discomfort and if necessary painkillers can be taken on the day of the surgery to feel at ease. A scar is unavoidable, however, it is just a fine line of stitches that can be removed after a week if desired or it will just dissolve over time.

“I’m not against plastic surgery”, says 17-year-old Kylie. “I only have lip fillers and the truth is, I’ve gotten older, I’ve gained 15 pounds and my body has changed”, she adds. With the world already obsessed with self-image, it seems like even the teens have now joined the boat. But let’s not put all the blame on poor Kylie – who by the way still denies that her dramatic transformation within just about a year is all thanks to the miracles of going under the knife, there are many other young celebrities who have given rise to the trend of cosmetic surgery for teens. Teenagers are willingly going to great lengths in order to look their best, mostly in their #selfies only to be posted all over Social Media. Even if optimal safety measures are taken for surgical procedures to minimise the complications, the trend of cosmetic surgery for teens has kept parents awake at night. In the UK, it was found that some beauticians and dentists had been offering cosmetic surgery to teens as young as 14 with lip augmentation being the most demanded procedure – #KylieJennerLipChallenge influence, perhaps? So the question that’s been on everyone’s lips lately is- how young is too young to have cosmetic surgery?

How young is too young?

There is no official minimum age for a person to have cosmetic surgery. Why is that, you ask? Well because cosmetic procedures are not just for people who want to look good or like a ‘celebrity look-alike’. There are procedures available out there such as ear correction for those born with ears that stick out or male breast reduction for those who hide under baggy sweatshirts most of their lives. Cosmetic surgery could at times be a life-saviour for some who may be struggling with a body feature that affects their self-esteem and often their social life. That being said, surgeons believe that it is still unethical to perform cosmetic surgery on someone under the age of 18. Yes, 18 Kylie!! Even though cosmetic surgery for teens is widely available, it is highly recommended that someone under 18 must carefully think about their decision and also involve their parents. The main reason behind this is because to get cosmetic surgery it is ideal that the person has reached his/her adult body size due to the fact that our body is always undergoing some kind of change from size to shape until the age of 18. Therefore, the results might not stay permanently as it would on a grown adult. Most importantly, some cosmetic procedures are surgical and so carries the complications of any other surgical procedures. So before you decide, ask yourself – Do I really wanna look like Kylie Jenner?

Cosmetic procedures for men that you can get during your lunch

Can I get a plate of cosmetic procedures for men please!“, said no man ever – until now. Because now you can turn back time in under an hour. The advancement of cosmetic procedures for men and women now has the power to not only make you feel and look good but also save you time. Men in particular like to keep their tricks for maintaining their good look a secret, therefore, search for quick procedures with minimal side effects but effective at the same time. Isn’t that right lads? Get yours done during your lunch break and return to work immediately, that’s how quick it is – and your secret will be safe. All you need to do is find a clinic nearest to your workplace, should be easy if you’re in London. But remember, always research who will be treating you before you let them #DoYourHomework. Here are few of the minimally invasive cosmetic procedures for men that can be done within the hour of your lunch break with highly effective results and safety.

Front belly fat and love handles

cosmetic procedures for men The liposuction procedure for men can be done within 60 minutes. Keep in mind that it is not a weight-loss treatment and is more suitable for men who like to keep in shape but have problem areas that they can’t seem to get rid of. During the procedure, a cooling applicator is used to target the fat cells, which gets frozen and then is naturally eliminated by your body. Result – Expect a 20-30% improvement in your bulge after your treatment.

Under eye-bags

Only takes 10 minutes of your time, an injectable filler called Juvederm, which is also produced naturally by your body, is injected underneath your eye-bags to help lift it in a broad way to reduce visible bumps and lumps. Cosmetic procedures for men such as these contribute to restoring your overall appearance making you look younger, and potentially feel young too! Result – You should notice differences immediately after the procedure. The only catch with this cosmetic procedure is that you will need to get it again after 6 months or a year if you wish to keep your youthful appearance.

Sagging jaw-line

This procedure takes about 15-20 minutes, a radio frequency technology with very little discomfort involved, is used to help tighten saggy, loose skin for a defined jaw-line. Result – One or two follow-up sessions may be required for this procedure depending on the optimal result you desire. If you want to maintain your appearance, you will need to go back for it every year or two.

Veiny hands

If the skin on your hands has lost it’s elasticity over time, making veins underneath appear prominent, a volumising filler can be injected into your hands and the procedure only takes about 10 minutes. Result – The treatment can last from 9 to 18 months but you may have to go for more than one session depending on the results you want.

Cosmetic surgery trends – 8 bizarre trends known to man

If you think people go under the knife just for bigger boobs and smaller belly, these unusual cosmetic surgery trends will make you think again.

The vampire facial

The procedure trademarked during the craze of The Vampire Diaries and Twilight Saga, the vampire facial involves taking the patient’s own blood, separating its component to produce a rich plasma with growth factors, and then re-injecting it into the face with tiny acupuncture-sized needles. Dermapen, the tool used for the procedure contains several tiny needles to inject the blood and can presumably make you bleed and cry. Guess who the godmother of this cosmetic surgery trend is?

The human tiger

Dennis spent years undergoing surgery to turn himself into a human tiger. Surgeries included splitting his top lip, tooth filling, forehead implants and many other odd cosmetic surgery procedures. He chose to live like a tiger and enjoyed climbing trees and even ate raw meat every day. Sadly, he was found dead in his house and is believed to have killed himself.

cosmetic surgery trends

Human Barbie and Ken

Human Barbie and Ken stirred up the internet back in 2012, especially when they met each other for the first time.  Justin Jedlica, the human Ken started this costly habit when he turned 18 and has had over 90 surgeries to look the way he looks now. ‘Plastic surgery is an extension of me being creative’, he said. However, Valeria Lukyanova, the human Barbie claims to only have had breast implants and achieved the rest of her Barbie-like features with makeup and extensive workouts.

Pet plastic surgery

If you don’t like the look of your pet, now there are plastic surgeons willing to change their appearance for you. Widely popular in South Korea and America, pet owners are putting their pets under the knife to ‘improve’ their look. The procedures available for the pets include anti-wrinkle injections, tummy tuck and ear correction surgery. But aren’t pet animals supposed to look cute just the way they are?

cosmetic surgery trends

The ‘gummy smile’ repair

Not everyone likes it when an excessive amount of gum can be seen every time they smile. For that, the surgeons have devised a technique to improve the gummy smile by cutting some of the muscles that elevate the lips and inserting an implant to prevent the muscles from reconnecting. Jennifer Garner is known to have had the gummy smile repair by judging her photos of the past, but it has not been confirmed.

cosmetic surgery trends

Dimple creation

Dimple creation or dimpleplasty is gaining quite a popularity as more people who aren’t lucky to be born with the natural ‘dimples’ on their cheek want one, or shall I say two. Surgeons are surgically able to create natural looking permanent dimples by making an incision on the cheeks and a suture is inserted inside the cheeks which causes a dimpling in the overlying skin. The first few weeks the dimples will appear on the cheek even without smiling but then gradually becomes more naturally present.

cosmetic surgery trends

Cinderella foot surgery

It definitely would be a fairytale come true for women if there was a way to wear high heels without going through all the pain that comes with it. Well, Cinderella surgery is perfect for those who have painful bunions that keep them from wearing high heels. The bone-cutting procedure involves cutting the bone at the joint and moving the big toe to make it straight. 

cosmetic surgery trends

The Dogman

After reading about the human tiger, a person who turned himself into a dog should not come as a surprise. But this is more bizarre than Dennis’s story. This man supposedly had a plastic surgery to sew a dead dog’s head onto his face in an attempt to look like a dog. But is it real or a hoax?

cosmetic surgery trends

Later on, it was confirmed that it was a part of a Brazilian artist’s work and even though the dog’s head was indeed real, the dog had been put to sleep for a reason and he had permission from the council to use them. So rest assured, it was fake. It would be truly shocking if it had been real though, isn’t it?

Cosmetic Surgery is to change appearance. Pardon?

The medical field of cosmetic surgery started 100 years ago when British soldiers were needing skin reconstruction caused by horrible injuries during World War II, which started a revolution of what is now popularly known as cosmetic surgery. 100 years later, as cosmetic surgery techniques advances with technology, it has gained huge popularity mostly among women aged between 20 – 55+ and also with increasing popularity among men. Along the years, unfortunately, there has been a lot of misconceptions about the purpose of cosmetic surgery and that it is to completely change one’s appearance. What people fail to consider is that people who have undergone drastic changes chose to do so with their ‘own free will’, and that does not define the sole purpose behind the medical treatment. Yes, I use the term ‘treatment’ because cosmetic surgery not only offers enhancement of appearance but also contributes to a person’s mental health as it helps them with their self-esteem when they feel better about themselves after a procedure. For instance, here at London Lipo Institute, we offer facial rejuvenation treatments to tighten wrinkled skin, tummy tuck surgery for new mommies post-pregnancy who experience loose skin in the abdominal area, and also breast reduction for men who have gynecomastia (enlarged breasts). Plastic surgeons have constructed techniques of cosmetic surgery in such variation that it provides a solution to any problem that seems impossible to fix. Council member of the European Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, Ion Zegrea says, “Patients don’t want to look as if they have been operated on. They want to look healthier, brighter, but not necessarily much younger”. Evidently, breast enlargement surgery has fallen by 23% in the UK in comparison to last year as the most popular breast size reduces to ‘a full C’. This definitely shows a change in attitude among people in Britain as people no longer want to change their appearance. “It’s now all about being subtle”, adds Zegrea. Keeping this in mind I’d say, when science has created a way to augment one’s god-gifted appearance, then why should one settle with something they are not entirely content with, right?
