Once you have decided on plastic surgery you can either save up the money (which we partly recommend) but at the same time you can take out an unsecured loan to help make up the difference in cost. As with taking out a loan for surgery once you have started the treatment, the last thing you want is to be stressed about the cost, and how you will pay for the treatment. It is for this reason that we recommend getting your finances in order before applying for, and starting the treatment.
Statistics from 2012 from the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons show:
In order of popularity, the most popular surgical procedures for women and men in 2015 are:
|Type of Surgery||% Increase from 2014 – 2015||Total Operations|

|Face and Neck Lift||16%||7,419|
|Otoplasty (ear correction)||14%||1,074|
We have taken figures from Private Healthcare UK to look at the average, lowest and highest cost for popular cosmetic surgeries across the UK.
|Average Price||Lowest Price||Highest Price|

The physical benefits of plastic surgery are noticeable immediately after the bandages come off and the bruising goes down. If you have had breast augmentation you will be able to see the change immediately, the same for a nose reshaping or any other noticeable surgery.
In many cases the emotional benefits of an operation is emotional. These results can be much more life changing than the physical changes because of the way they make you feel. If you have always disliked the way a certain body part looks, and you think that is holding you back, then getting the surgery can cause a change in confidence that will be echoed across everything you do. Although many doctors and psychologists do not think there is a huge emotional benefit, it is really up to the individual person to decide whether it will make a life changing impact or not.
There are always risks to any type of surgery such as reacting badly to the anaesthesia or a chance of infection or complications post-surgery. However the risks individual to cosmetic surgery is that the operation might not come out exactly as you have expected, and you might be disappointed with what happens. You may be expecting a dramatic transformation that just isn’t possible with your bone structure, or your surgeon might not be able to do exactly what you have pictured in your head.
You need to weigh the risks in your head carefully before undertaking this, or any, type of surgical procedure.
