LONDON FACELIFTS ADVICE AND PROCEDURE
As many people get older, they may find that they struggle to accept the ageing face they see in the mirror. For those who feel that their face is giving away their age when they otherwise feel youthful, a facelift can offer a solution which can both restore their self-esteem and improve their image.
If you are considering a facelift, take a look at the following advice from the experts at Safer Cosmetic Surgery to help ensure that if you do decide that surgery is right for you, it can be carried out safely and effectively.
Choose Your Surgeon Carefully
It is important to find an accredited and experienced surgeon who can carry out your procedure in a way which adheres to regulations. During your consultation they will be able to assess your suitability for a facelift and answer any questions you might have. All of this will help ensure that you are an ideal candidate for the procedure.
The effects of ageing can be made worse by exposure to the sun, or by smoking and drinking alcohol. You should not expect a facelift to give you the face you had at eighteen, even when combined with a new haircut and a pair of designer glasses. Nor should you expect surgery to be able to erase permanent creases, particularly around your mouth.
It is important to know what to expect from your facelift procedure and your recovery. Although incisions are made subtly, your scars will thicken and redden before they begin to fade. You can expect to experience some bruising and numbness, and some of the risks of a facelift include scarring, bleeding and infection. These are all things which you should be fully aware of before deciding to proceed with surgery.
When you are considering a facelift, remember to take the advice of professionals. Safer Cosmetic Surgery can provide you with the tips you need you to help ensure that your facelift proceeds safely, and gives the results you are looking for. Make sure your decision to undergo cosmetic surgery is an informed one, and you won’t be disappointed.

EXPERIENCED TUMMY TUCK SURGEONS IN THE LONDON AREA
As accredited surgeons, we here at Safer Cosmetic Surgery appreciate that many individuals feel self-conscious surrounding the appearance of their stomach. During a woman’s lifetime, their body is subjected to various changes, which may include weight loss and gain as a result of childbirth. Such events can distort the outward appearance of a stomach, leaving it scarred, stretched and in the case of excessive weight loss - sagging. It is typically for this reason that many women look to cosmetic surgery, specifically that of a tummy tuck to reduce such signs.
Although surgery may be a viable option, there are associated risks which need to be considered and explained before any surgery is committed to. One way to reduce any health risks is by seeking the expertise of an accredited surgeon.
There are numerous ways you can go about this, the first is by talking to your GP to identify any surgeons in the area local to where you live. By doing this you are assured to locate a surgeon that is BAAPS and/or BAPRAS approved which goes some way to reducing the risks posed by this type of operation. The other is to browse through our regularly updated website.

This will allow you to have a detailed chat with your chosen surgeon to establish the potential effects the procedure will have on your body, as you may find that you experience soreness and some discomfort following the operation.
Although you will need to refrain from participating in any particularly exertive exercise, it may be possible to slowly ease back into your normal routine by starting with a less demanding exercises; whether this may be a leisurely dip in your local swimming pool, or slowly building up your strength in your Surrey or London based gym, mild exercise is acceptable once the wound itself has healed.

HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT SURGEON FOR YOUR BREAST REDUCTION
There are many women who would seriously consider cosmetic surgery to enhance or transform their bodies. Whilst bigger breasts are at the top of many women’s lists, for some women their large breasts cause them pain and make their daily lives difficult. For these women, breast reduction surgery is a viable option to help reduce their pain, whilst making it easier for them to find well-fitting clothes and boosting their confidence.
For those who are considering breast reduction surgery, here at Safer Cosmetic Surgery we have put together the following fact sheet to help you choose a professional and reliable surgeon.
Finding Your Surgeon
When searching for a surgeon to carry out your breast reduction, there are some things that you should look for. Find a cosmetic surgeon who is a member of BAAPS or BAPRAS. Members are, or have been in the past, consultant surgeons at NHS hospitals, giving you peace of mind that your surgeon is highly trained and highly competent.
During a consultation, your chosen surgeon should consider your medical history to ensure that you are a suitable candidate for surgery. This is the opportunity for you to ask any questions you have, and for your surgeon to explain every aspect of your breast reduction surgery, including the result you should expect and any potential complications.
We recommend that you avoid clinics advertising free consultations, as these are often a marketing ploy. Your consultation is a vital part of your surgery journey, so you should expect to pay a fee for your surgeon’s time.
Consider Your Finances
The very best surgeons will always provide you with a fixed price for your surgery, which should include all treatment and aftercare. It is important to be financially secure for a year following your surgery, which will act as a contingency should anything go wrong.
Whether you're looking to have cosmetic dentistry or breast reduction surgery, all surgical procedures should be carefully considered before proceeding. A highly qualified, experienced surgeon is the key to successful, safe surgery, so keep this advice from the experts here at Safer Cosmetic Surgery in mind.
