      The National Health Service is offering free plastic surgery procedures to patients who obviously need them. Patients who are extremely disfigured or those who need corrective work following an accident are the ones intended to receive such type of services. However, it seems that women are trying their best to get a free surgery by exaggerating their unhappiness with their looks.

      It looks like people are getting so desperate with they way they look. Not only are they going to cheap plastic surgery clinics with incompetent surgeons, they are actually attempting surgery on themselves.

      Some people have gone to the extreme. Reports say that there are people who have glued back their ears, tried to iron the wrinkles off their face, and even cut open their tummies.

      A psychologist at the celebrity Priority Hospital in London, Dr. David Veale, said that the rise of DIY cosmetic surgery was being driven by too much fascination with movie stars and good looks.

      Techniques in cosmetic surgery can also be used to enhance the results of other types of surgical procedures. Cosmetic surgery usually employs a method wherein patients sit or stand while the cosmetic surgeon marks the incision site. This particular way of marking the incision can improve the aesthetic result of a thyroid surgery since the incisions are made to blend into the natural lines of the body.

      Researchers are quite thrilled at this discovery. Base-of-the-neck incisions are quite challenging so this type of development is a welcome change.

      A face lift surgery is perhaps one of the oldest forms of cosmetic surgery and one of the first ones that actually went mainstream. And because of this, we think we know everything about the procedure. However, there are still more important things that we might have overlooked about this old surgical method and one facial surgeon is about to share to us things that could help us come up with an informed decision concerning our facial surgery endeavors.

      Robert Amonic, M.D., Staff Physician at Saint John’s Health Center has this to say to those who are planning to get a face lift.

      The first time I meet with someone who’s interested in having a facelift, I make sure she knows my philosophy of treatment: don’t overdo it. That means she might keep a few wrinkles. But she’s going to obtain her objective of looking years younger, and at the same time maintain a completely natural appearance.
