5 Reasons To Avoid Trends When Considering Plastic Surgery

Trends come and go.  Some last longer than others but what’s fashionable today almost certainly won’t be in five years.  When it comes to considering plastic surgery, it’s important to make changes based on what suits you and what will make you feel better about the way you look, not what’s trending at the time.

Trends change
Trends, by their very nature, are always changing.  What you consider to be a good look today will not necessarily ring true in future.  Base your decisions on what will work for you in the long-term.  Consider what have been your long-term preferences and let these preferences guide you.  

Trends don’t suit everyone
Whilst a fashionable look can be adapted, the simple truth is that not all trends suit everybody.  You need to discern what would suit your body shape or facial features and work with that rather than what the fashion and beauty industry depicts as the best look.  

Plastic surgery is a long-term decision
It’s best to plan a long-term change that you can have done without regret.  Having your surgery and then moving forward with your life with renewed confidence is the aim, not worrying that you’re left with a look that’s based on a short-term trend which will date in next to no time.

Of course, plastic surgery can be revised.  Indeed, some treatments lend themselves to maintenance.  A facelift, for example, may need to be revised after 10+ years if you wish to maintain a youthful appearance, as your face and skin will continue to change as you age after the original surgery. Additionally, breast implants can be switched for new or larger versions or removed altogether in future.  

However, we would always advise you to consider surgical treatment to be a long-term decision.  Our experienced surgeons will help you make good choices that you’ll be happy with for many years.  

Your preferences change as you age
What’s important to you in your 20s is very different when you reach your mid-life.  That’s why it’s important to make changes that enhance your natural features rather than aiming for a drastically new look or one that suits the fashion of the day.  

Our aim is to help you look like the best version of yourself: this approach will mean you always look your best, regardless of what’s on-trend.

Do what’s right for you
We cannot over-estimate how important it is to make decisions based on what feels right for you personally.  It’s important not to be unduly influenced by others.  Listen to your gut instinct about what feels right.  

If you do want other people’s opinions to help you decide if plastic surgery is right for you, be careful who you consult with.  Take on board the views of friends and family who you know put your interests first.  Of course, our team of plastic surgeons will seek to understand what results you’d like to achieve and give their opinion, based on their years of experience, about what would work best for you.

Ultimately, we want you to be delighted with your results for many years to come.  Take the first step with an initial consultation with a member of our experienced plastic surgery team.
