As the quality, availability and innovations in plastic surgery have evolved, so too has the culture surrounding cosmetic enhancement. More people are getting Botox injections, facelifts, rhinoplasty and other cosmetic surgery and being more open about it, and the industry continues to grow as a result.
According to Female First, a women’s news website, 15 to 20 years ago cosmetic surgery was considered a taboo subject, reserved for the wealthy and never discussed. Today, thanks to the media spotlight on celebrities, improvements to non-invasive procedures, the availability of board-certified surgeons and even the rise of digital photography, more people can openly and comfortably enhance their appearance.
One of the most important driving influences on the growing accessibility of plastic surgery is innovations in non-invasive cosmetic procedures. Safe and affordable options such as Botox, laser skin resurfacing and chemical peels offer significant improvements to appearance that can be performed quickly and have the patient back to their normal life within days, rather than weeks of recovery. Of course, it’s equally important to go to a highly-qualified surgeon even for basic, minimally-invasive procedures.
“It’s true to say that cosmetic surgery treatments now are more advanced today than they were 15 years ago,” Anindya Lahiri, a consultant plastic Surgeon at BMI The Edgbaston Hospital in Birmingham, England, told the news source. “With any procedure though, invasive or non-invasive, quick or more time intensive, there is always a risk. You should always seek advice and have you procedure performed by a qualified medical professional. Don’t be embarrassed to ask to see their qualifications or to speak with a past patient of theirs.”
