Considering Cosmetic Surgery? Affordable At Home Alternatives
We all have those days when we look in the mirror and really don’t love what we see. But with cosmetic surgery becoming more accessible, it’s getting easier for us to find the quick-fix we want. Procedures like Vaser Liposuction and Laser hair removal are increasingly more popular, and normal. It would be great if we could learn to love what we see. Though for a lot of people, making that change could make a big difference to their life, improving their self-esteem and confidence. However, for many, surgery is just not an option. Putting aside from the numerous risks associated with any major operation, the cost is a big issue. Despite its growing popularity, it is still very expensive. But luckily, there are now plenty of cheaper, at home alternatives to the various different cosmetic procedures you can opt for. Before you decide to go under the knife, take a look at these.
Possibly one of the most popular operations, many women choose to have a breast enhancement. With medical advancements meaning you can now achieve very natural looking enlarged breasts, it’s easy to see why so many are happy with surgery. It’s common knowledge that there are a variety of bras that can create the illusion of bigger or more lifted boobs. And more recently the use of bronzer to contour the look of them. However, there are other tried and tested methods to naturally and safely enhance your chest. Many swear by specific exercises combined with estrogen based pills and creams. But beware, if you choose to take tablets, make sure you do your research. Always ensure that what you’re taking is completely safe (natural options are best) and if you are unsure, ask for advice from a doctor. Others believe an electrical device designed to increase blood flow to the chest area can work wonders. These are all much more affordable and safer options. Even though the results may not be as sudden and dramatic as that of a real boob job, they can make a real difference.
If you want smoother, younger looking skin, a chemical peel could be the perfect solution for you. A chemical solution is applied to the skin, making it blister and eventually ‘peel’ off to reveal new skin underneath. Used to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, acne and scars, many people are amazed at the results. However, at around £1,600 a treatment, it is simply not a possibility for many. Fortunately, you can now buy a solution to do your own chemical peel at home, which can produce the same results at a much more reasonable price. Make sure you follow the directions exactly to ensure you get the desired results, safely.
Laser Hair Removal:
A procedure that is fast growing in it’s popularity is laser hair removal, and it’s easy to see why. It’s safe, it’s effective and with results that promise no more shaving, the only issue is the expensive price tag that is attached. At around £100-150 per session, it seems affordable. That is until you learn that you need around 10 sessions to experience permanent results and top-ups in the future. It soon starts to add up, and it can be very painful, meaning it doesn’t sound as great an option. But, high-street brands are quickly catching up to make the most of the trend, meaning there are new affordable, at home options. Take a look at a comparison of all the different devices available.
If you would love to look trim, toned and slim without having to go through the pain of a strict diet and exercise routine, liposuction probably seems like the perfect option. It can provide you with an easy route to the figure that you want, but, as with any major operation, it is not completely safe or pain-free. And at up to £4,500, it is a very expensive ‘quick-fix’. Though not a long term solution, there are plenty of different types of underwear designed to sculpt your figure. Whether you want a tiny waist, toned legs or a lifted bottom, you can easily find the specific shapewear you need and at a reasonable price. Perfect for weddings, birthdays and other events when you want to look great and feel confident.
With the likes of Kylie Jenner and other celebrities setting the standard for luscious lips, many are now opting to have fillers injected into their lips to get that perfect pout. However, there are plenty of well-known faces who have undergone this treatment and come out looking much worse. On top of the expense and the fact that you need constant top-ups, there is a very real risk of permanent disfiguration. Instead, you can use any of the various plumping lip glosses on the market, a much safer and cheaper option. They work by using a variety of natural ingredients designed to slightly irritate your lips so that they swell, but without any pain or risk.
People as young as 20 are having injections of botulinum toxin in order to prevent the development of wrinkles in later life. Used to freeze the muscle groups in the face, it can become addictive as a solution to smoothing out wrinkles and crow’s feet. Though a very common procedure, it is not without its risks. As it is a type of poison, it can have toxic effects on the body, and cause problems swallowing, speaking and even breathing. Instead, you can find plenty of anti-ageing cremes designed to fight wrinkles and other signs of ageing. For best results, begin to use the cremes before fine lines appear.
Before you decide to undergo a major operation, test out some of these ideas. You have nothing to lose and can potentially save yourself a lot of money (and pain). If you still feel cosmetic surgery is the right route for you, always do your research, find a brilliant surgeon and only do it if it is for yourself.
