Cosmetic Surgery Database Hacked!

Cosmetic Surgery Database Hacked

Hackers have stolen the data of celeb cosmetic surgery and are threatening to publish patients' before and after photos, among other details.

The Hospital Group, which is a favourite amongst reality TV stars and celebs, has confirmed the ransomware attack.  The data reveal is pretty enormous – 900 Gigs of intimate client data.    The clinic trades under the ‘Transform' brand and they have 11 clinics around the UK.  They are very well known for their weight loss surgery which has helped many a celeb on their Instagram journey.  The clinic said it had informed the Information Commissioner of the breach.

On its darknet webpage, the hacker group known as REvil said the “intimate photos of customers” were “not a completely pleasant sight”. That leaves a lot of images to the imagination.  REvil, also known as Sodinokibi, is one of the most prolific ransomware groups. Its high-profile victims include currency exchange Travelex and entertainment law firm Grubman Shire Meiselas & Sacks.

Famous personalities tummies, boobs and nether regions before their transformations might not be such a pretty sight.  Many household names will have had their Xmas disturbed on learning that a cosmetic surgery database hacked recently contained their personal details.

This is not the first time a celeb cosmetic surgery clinic has been hit by hackers, 3 years ago the LBPS  was hit with a similar intrusion.  Hackers love to hit confidential information that might embarrass wealthy people.  The most famous ransomware hack was directed at the adultery site Ashley Madison which threatened to expose sexual misdemeanours.   Intimate photos of celebs who have shed lots of weight and told their fans it was through gym workouts or special diet plans might now have to admit to gastric sleeves and liposuction.

Former Big Brother contestant Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace told Zoo magazine about her breast enhancement surgery with The Hospital Group in 2009.

Atomic Kitten singer Kerry Katona, Shameless actress Tina Malone and reality TV star Joey Essex from The Only Way is Essex have openly endorsed the clinic. There are, of course, countless celebs and wannabes who have not spoken of their procedures and might think that it is worth paying to keep it quiet.

The Hospital Group said in a statement: “We can confirm that our IT systems have been subject to a data security breach. None of our patients' payment card details has been compromised but at this stage, we understand that some of our patients' personal data may have been accessed.” Well, I don't suppose it will reassure the patients that their credit card details are safe. New cards can be issued and transactions blocked.  But what can't be so easily waved away are explicit photos of nipple adjustments and (heaven forbid) ‘designer vaginas' floating about on the dark web with a major cosmetic surgery database hacked.

The company said it had emailed all its customers about the cyber-attack and would contact individuals who might have had more personal details compromised.

We will update you as more information becomes available.

Nigerian Influencer Nengi Trolled For Cosmetic Surgery Comments

Top BBNaija star, Nengi Rebecca Hampson has been unfairly trolled on Facebook by some posters because she seemed to be encouraging young fans to get cosmetic surgery if they can afford it.  She told them to do whatever. pleases them to their bodies and that includes plastic surgery.

The former beauty queen recently encouraged her followers to do whatever pleases them to their body, even if it is plastic surgery. Nengi Rebecca Hampson  is a former beauty queen and a BBNaija star so she is an important influncer.

The BBnaija finalist said in a recent interview with The Punch,

“I think we are past the time when women were expected to be ashamed of what they did with their bodies. I believe that if you want anything and you can afford it, don’t hesitate to get it,”

Facebook user Toluwani C Asojo wrote ;

Rubbish! So we shouldn’t be ashame to tell God he doesn’t know how to do his work. I am proud of how God created me, I love my flat yansh& small boobs. Na old age go tell you. Natural is the best.

Gift Ndubuisi wrote ;

There is God oooo
All this plastic surgery you girls are doing, na only una waka come…
Because you are telling us that the way God moulded your bumbum isn’t good enough and you are proud telling us not to be ashamed to do plastic surgery…
Today is Tuesday, few days to Xmas, some girls have booked for plastic surgery self… May ur surgery go successfully

So there seems to be some disagreement in Nigerian social media on whether young girls should spend their Xmas in a cosmetic clinic or be happy with the looks that God gave them.  Nengi who has 1.4 M IG followers is a big name in Nigeria and a lot of young women take her as a role model.

Nengi herself prefers to steer clear of social media arguments. According to her, people who hate on the success of others can't be successful themselves – This comes barely a few days after she revealed she refused to join the BBNaija WhatsApp group because she didn't want any issues.

South Korean Cosmetic Surgery Big Celebrity Reveal

It is certainly no secret that Korean cosmetic surgery stands in a class of its own.  More than 30% of S.Korean women in their 20's have had plastic surgery or aesthetic work done.   Eyelids are ‘westernized' and faces are contoured.  Lipos are sucked and tummies are tucked.  Out of a thousand patients who go under the knife, about 68% do the double-eyelid surgery. It is the most popular procedure done by Koreans to achieve doll-like, bigger-looking eyes.  All this frenetic cosmetic activity is driven by a K Pop celebrity culture that recalls the Liverpool Boy Band explosion of the 1960's Beatles era.  So who are these celebrities and what have they actually had done?

Nicole Arcano did a big reveal on the Preview website which answers many of the ‘did they? didn't they?  questions that have been buzzing around the fansites over recent years.  so first we will tell you who did have the cosmetic treatment and then in a second big reveal, we will tell you who didn't have their monolids westernized!  So strap yourself in for the big Korean cosmetic surgery news..

Rapper Jessi

Reveal #1 Jessi

Rapper and performer of Unpretty Rapstar fame Jessi confidently discussed her plastic surgeries in an episode of Happy Together. She admitted that she underwent a breast procedure and that she doesn't get offended when people say they look “too fake.” The rapper explains, “Why do I have to hide it? I paid for it and got them done a long time ago.”

Jessi also mentioned that she had double eyelid surgery and rhinoplasty done—”Who doesn't get plastic surgery? I got my eyes and nose done. Everyone knows.”   She has some regrets it seems, but she wanted to look more photogenic.

Reveal #2. Minzy

Minzy, who was a member of girl group 2NE1, became the centre of plastic surgery rumours back in 2013. Her agency YG Entertainment denied the claims, attributing her changing appearance to age. However, Minzy eventually admitted that she had surgery done on her nose.  She apparently needed her nose adjusted for medical reasons and her mother suggested she had some plastic surgery done at the same time.  this was disputed by her management at the time who said “Minzy is getting prettier, as she turned twenty this year. She did not get plastic surgery. She simply became prettier; there is nothing more than that.”

Reveal #3  Park Min Young

Sungkyunkwan Scandal

When Park Min Young was getting widely noticed for her role in Sungkyunkwan Scandal, old school photos of her surfaced online, leading netizens to suspect that she's done plastic surgery. So, the actress made the decision to reveal that she has indeed had cosmetic work done. The actress told Sports Chosun that she had double eyelid surgery done in junior high school and got her nose done during that time because it was crooked.

Reveal #4 Ze: A's Hwang Kwanghee

Idol and MC Kwanghee is a spokesman for Korean cosmetic surgery.  He has opened up on during various TV show that he had cosmetic procedures done on his eyes, nose, chin, and forehead. In fact, in an episode of Cool Kids, it was revealed that the only part of his face that Kwanghee didn't get any work done was his cheekbones!  Well, I am sure he still has time to get other things fixed if he wants to. Kwanghee had his eyebrows micro-bladed as well and joked in the same show (My Old Little Boy) that your face “settles down” 10 years post-plastic surgery to look more natural.  I must say he looks really natural and his surgeons have done a great job for him.

Reveal #5. Brown Eyed Girls' Nasha

During an interview for Radio Star, Narsha of the group Brown Eyed Girls said that she has “gotten much prettier and happier” after her cosmetic procedures. She said that being a celebrity obviously meant that they paid attention to their looks more and that she doesn't think plastic surgery is a bad thing.

This is ironic since her group covered Lady Gaga's ‘Poker Face' track calling it ‘Plastic Face' and in the lyrics preached self-confidence rather than cosmetic surgery.

Ok, that is top 5 reveals on Korean celebs who went under the knife.  Now here is our big reveal #2 – stars who resisted the temptation to have their eyelids westernized.

Proud Monolid Reveal #1 Kim Go Eun

In a 2016 interview, Kim Go Eun once confessed how she almost went under the scalpel before she started as an actress. She was asked if she ever felt self-conscious about her monolids and she admitted, “I thought about undergoing double eyelid surgery before my debut. I ended up not doing it, and I think I made the right decision.” She also added that she has “no plans to get eyelid surgery” and that she likes her monolids.

She’s Got a Ticket to Rhytidectomy and She Don’t Care.

Rhytidectomy aka facelift
Shes Got A Ticket To Rhytidectomy And She Dont Care

 

‘Rhytidectomy' or else referred to as a ‘facelift' is undergoing a busy period as baby boomers line up to push back the years. A rhytidectomy is a plastic surgery done to get rid of excess facial skin, tighten the underlying tissues, by redraping of the skin and toning the face muscles to provide a more youthful look..

prepare for Rhytidectomy

To see how popular it is, simply take a look at the statistics. According to the American Culture for Aesthetic Cosmetic Surgery, Rhytidectomy is the 6th most common visual surgical procedure, along with other well-known procedures such as breast augmentation, eyelid surgical treatment, liposuction surgery, abdominoplasty, and bust lift..

The facelift market is highly sensitive to social as well as cultural variables, the influence of media & fashion influencers, peer pressure, and changing expectations of beauty as we age, Technical advancements in sophisticated diagnostic imaging, magnetic vibration imaging, as well as others, have led to a boost in the variety of Rhytidectomy treatments done. The worldwide rhytidectomy market is progressively likely towards minimally invasive surgical treatments owing to its reduced impact. The facelift market is extremely biased towards customized and also highly targeted and customised treatments, which is driving the boom in facelifts. The advancement of computer-generated models is has left the realms of science fiction and become ‘clinical fact.' The patient can see in advance precisely what they can expect when the surgeon has done his job. He can literally see how the wrinkles fade away.

Sounds Great, But What Are the Downsides?

  • The high price of procedures,
  • The danger of infection for Patient
  • Damages to the facial nerves,
  • Possibility of long-term scars.
  • Shortage of top-class specialist surgeons.
  • Loss of Sensation

Having a facelift does not come cheap. If you are based in the UK or USA you will be looking at prices north of £5000/$6000 for a good surgeon in a well-established clinic. Our guide to ‘ the best facelifts surgeons in Europe ‘ will give you a shortlist of the top scalpels in Europe. Medical tourism (in a non-pandemic period) can offer you great savings. You can, for example, go to Belgium and let Novacorpus do the Rhytidectomy for 25% less which leaves some change for some good meals and a bit of quality tourism. You can make even greater savings by heading to Turkey – see our comprehensive listings.

if your Homebase is North America you will certainly wish to explore Mexicali clinics in Tijuana and Cajun where your dollar will be treated with reverence and your surgeon will probably have done his training north of the border anyway. You can also make substantial savings in Costa Rica with an even more vibrant landscape and a well established and regulated cosmetic surgery industry.  As with any medical tourism adventure, it is important to consider the follow-up consultations.  You must factor the potential price of returning to the exotic destination for a follow-up appointment into your budgeting.

Side effects to expect

facelift after effects

After a facelift, it's common to have: a stiff, puffy and numb face for a few weeks or months temporary bruising of the cheeks – the bruises will eventually move down the neck with gravity scars – these fade, but may not completely disappear.   This can, however, be reduced by topical creams.  Dr Douglas Mcgeorge – a top plastic surgeon – discussed his Science of Skin products, that are based on green tea, in our recent podcast.

Swelling Every operation, no matter how minor, is accompanied by swelling of the surrounding tissues.

Swelling around the eyes, cheeks, face, and down into the neck and chest is not uncommon.

Less Invasive Options to lose those wrinkles.

A mini-facelift is a less invasive operation that also aims to lift the wrinkles and sagging skin in the lower part of the face.

The Mini-Facelift is a technique best suited to patients who are starting to develop some jowls or have had previous lifting treatments. If you are worried about the effects of ageing on your face and are starting to experience mild skin laxity, cheek sagging or loosening of the jawline then Mini Facelift could be the procedure for you.

In the operation, a cut is made in front of and behind the ear. Any old scars from previous surgery are removed. The skin is lifted off the deeper layers of the face to allow access to a layer called the SMAS. This deeper layer is then tightened, by stitching it over the cheekbone and up behind the ear. The cheek skin is then tightened backwards. The skin does need to be tailored out behind the ear, which leaves a variable-length scar in the groove behind the ear, but there is no scar into the hairline behind the ear as you would have in a conventional ‘full' facelift.

Using Creams and Potions.

There are, of course, a myriad of jars and tubes that you will see at the department store or in the airport duty-free.   Most of the money goes into the marketing and the high-priced models and movie stars that front them and endorse them.  I prefer more low key alternatives like Kollagen Intensiv – a Swiss product that is only available online and has some heavy science behind it.  I know a number of women who use this cream and they all speak very highly of it.

It also reduces signs of ageing in several amazing ways. It plumps up your skin on your face which gives you a more youthful appearance. Kollagen Intensiv also softens and conditions your skin at the same time. By using it twice a day, it also reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Using it after your cleanser helps to remove dead skin cells as well. Your skin will appear thicker, therefore, giving you a younger look. Your laugh lines and crow's feet will appear diminished as well that unsightly dark under-eye circles and puffiness will be reduced. Your skin will look lighter and you will definitely feel younger!

This is, of course,  a different result from a full facelift but using good products can often postpone the need for surgery and during these pandemic times it is hard to travel and get cut-price surgery.  So, good non-invasive alternatives are worth considering.

Cosmetic Surgery in Brazil: A Boom Fuelled by the Pandemic.

Cosmetic Surgery In Brazil A Boom Fuelled By The Pandemic

Cosmetic Surgery in Brazil

Zoom Pushes Brazilian Cosmetic Surgery Boom

Mirrors don't lie, nor does the screen during a videoconference: the virus-induced lockdown has led many Brazilians to undergo plastic surgery to look better.  The pandemic has disrupted the medical tourism sector so Brazil has had to rely more on its domestic market.

With trips cancelled and restaurants mostly closed, many have extra cash to carry out such procedures.  All the economists tell us we have been turned from spenders to savers this year.

Beauty clinics say demand for the cosmetic treatment has as much as doubled here since the pandemic began.

A typical client, Regiane de Oliveira Sousa, a 38-year-old sales representative from Sao Paulo spoke to AFP about how she has used her lockdown time wisely in self-improvement.   Over the past six months, she has had cosmetic skin peels, breast reduction surgery, liposuction to remove unwanted fat, and facial harmonization treatment.

“Friends of mine have also taken advantage of teleworking to do these surgeries,” she told AFP.

Cost of the procedure: 3,800 reais (around $730), or almost four times the monthly minimum wage in Brazil.

Her surgeon, Cintia Rios, said there has been a significant increase in cosmetic operations this year, about 40 percent more compared to what was done before the pandemic.

“I had to lengthen my work hours and I hired three employees. Beauty is not in crisis, thank God!”

According to Rios, otoplasties — cosmetic ear surgeries — are also popular because people feel that wearing a face mask makes their ears stick out.

Usually, such surgery is for children around the ages of eight or nine, “but this year, many adults are doing it.”

Lips are also important, adds de Oliveira Sousa, “because during telework videoconferences we see each other permanently on the screen.”

Rios's clinic was forced to close from March to May due to strict lockdown measures to control the spread of the coronavirus.  This affected domestic work as well as medical tourism.

Today, however, business at the clinic is booming.

Another typical Brazilian woman,  Rita Monteiro Meireles, 34 saw the confinement as a chance to use her savings to carry out cosmetic surgery enhancements that she has dreamed of since her divorce three years ago.

“I didn't like my face, and after getting a bichectomy (surgery to remove cheek fat) I was the happiest person in the world,” she said.

Monteiro Meireles smiled as she looked at her new face in a handheld mirror, her lips still swollen after the botox injection.

Cosmetic surgery may serve as a palliative during times of anxiety and uncertainty, said Henriette Morato, a psychologist at the University of Sao Paulo.

“It's a way of demonstrating more control over your own life, to change what is still possible,” she said.  This is a comment I have heard quite often from surgeons in the UK and France and it is an argument that is well rehearsed in the USA.  It would certainly explain the boom in cosmetic surgery in Brazil

A Very Strange Year For Cosmetic Surgery in Brazil

Even though some cosmetic surgery clinics have seen demand for their services increase, “not everything is rose-coloured,” said Denis Calazans, head of the Brazilian Society of Plastic Surgeons — especially because of the multi-week lockdown earlier in the year.

“It's an atypical year,” he said.

“We should be showing figures lower than those before the pandemic” for the entire sector, he said, even if clinics offering simple procedures have done well.

Working at home and saving on money otherwise spent on travel or outings has allowed generally well-off Brazilians “to invest in themselves,” he said.

Brazil is the world leader in cosmetic surgery procedures, with 13 per cent of the global market, according to figures from the International Society of Plastic Surgery reporting on cosmetic surgery in Brazil

But when all cosmetic procedures — including non-surgical procedures such as botox injections — are included, it comes in behind the United States.

Brazil is a country where we have several highly rated clinics that we list for you here.

          Understanding Microneedling and Knowing If It’s Right For You

          Understanding Microneedling And Knowing If Its Right For You

           

          As much as we want to deny it, we are all getting older. There are many paths you can follow to reverse the signs of ageing. You can find face creams and serums that work for you, or you can consult a doctor for a procedure like a facelift.  Cosmetic surgeons recommend thoroughly examining all of your options to find the right level for you, whether that is a topical remedy or a full surgical procedure. Microneedling is a procedure that is rising in popularity that lies right in the middle of the spectrum.

          Microneedling has existed since around 1995, and doctors have praised the procedure for its effectiveness on all areas of the body from the head and face to the feet. You may have heard the word “microneedling” before, but you may not have known what it was or if it was right for you. In this article, we are going to give you a quick rundown of everything you need to know about microneedling.

          What is Microneedling?

          microneedling

          Microneedling is a minimally invasive skincare procedure that stimulates the body’s natural healing agents and skin elasticity to rejuvenate skin, repair scars, and heal acne.

          During the procedure, the doctor will apply a local anaesthetic to the area that you want to be treated. Then, they will use a device called a derma roller, a handheld instrument with a rolling column covered with tiny needles, that are between 1mm and 4mm depending on the procedure. This device gives the procedure its name. The doctor will move the roller over the treatment area to pin-prick punctures or “micro-injuries.”

          Your body will then react to injuries by releasing natural healing agents such as elastin and collagen to repair the wounds. After the derma roller procedure is complete, the doctor applies a serum designed to enhance the production of collagen. The serum is absorbed into the skin and the healing process can begin quicker.

          As technology has advanced, microneedling has been used in conjunction with a  Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment. This treatment, which speeds up the body’s collagen production, involves removing and processing a patient’s blood to create PRP. The PRP is applied topically to the skin after the microneedling procedure to stimulate growth factors and quicken the healing process.

          You will begin to see results after a week, but your skin will continue to improve for a few weeks, up to a month after your procedure. Microneedling sees the most success as a session-based procedure. Patients who receive one session per month for several months produce more elastin and collagen after completing their treatment.

          The Recovery Process

          As with any cosmetic procedure, there is a healing period following a microneedling procedure, but because it is a minimally invasive process, the doctor will not fully bandage you. Immediately following the procedure, you should expect some redness and bruise, especially around bonier areas. Therefore you should be aware that a microneedling procedure on your face, may make you look like you got in a fight.

          The initial redness should go away within a few hours, but for the next few days after the procedure, you should expect itchy, sensitive skin. Consult your doctor or nurse for how to address this condition. They may recommend a hydration serum or an anti-itch cream depending on how sensitive your skin is.

          Advancements and Alternatives

          Dermarollers and Derma Pens may be the most common applicators for microneedling, but the procedure has advanced in the last 25 years to include tools that pair microneedling with radiofrequency to provide a more powerful stimulation.

          Radiofrequency, such as in the Morpheus8 procedure, delivers a controlled heat through the needles into the skin that boosts the natural healing response. Morpheus8 can deliver heat deeper into the skin than standard microneedling, giving a more invigorating result.

          However, if you do not have the time or money to spare to visit a professional, there are at-home options for a microneedling experience. You can find derma rollers and microneedling pens from beauty supply stores. At-home have shorter needles for your protection, but this will result in a less powerful treatment. Visiting a professional will guarantee a deep treatment, plus a professional to advise on how to care for your skin afterward.

          Know the Risks

          Because microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure, it offers fairly low risks to patients. As we mentioned, immediately after the procedure, you can expect red, sensitive skin. Further complications with the procedure may result in scarring, pigmentation problems, or infection.

          Microneedling is not recommended for everyone. People with severe skin conditions like psoriasis or eczema, pregnant people, people who have recently had radiation therapy, people with open wounds, and people with a history of skin scars are not considered ideal candidates for a microneedling procedure.

          It is also possible to abuse microneedling. Over-puncturing can damage the blood capillaries under the skin, or even give your skin a plastic-looking veneer. Dermatologists recommend that you do not use an at-home derma roller more than once per month.

          Microneedling has been around for almost 25 years, but that is still relatively new in terms of cosmetic procedures. If you are thinking about getting some work done, microneedling may be the right choice for you. Review this guide to microneedling as you learn more about your options. Then, you will be on your way to youthful, rejuvenated skin.

          Did Joselyn Cano’s Butt-lift Cause Her Death?

          Did Joselyn Canos Butt Lift Cause Her Death

          Twitter and IG were reeling this week on the news that Joselyn Cano – “The Mexican Kim Kardashian,”  died as a result of a BBL procedure in Colombia, or perhaps Peru.  The news is still a bit sketchy.  People are saying that her ‘Only Fans' page is still active so maybe she isn't dead after all? Her 13 Million IG followers are glued anxiously to their feeds as the shock of Joselyn Cano' death sinks in.

          Cano's family is yet to release an official statement addressing the tragic news, but several users on Twitter have claimed that she died in Peru during a butt lift surgical procedure but others tweeters have said that the operation was in Colombia.

          So, Who was Joselyn Cano?

          joselyn cano
          Photo Credit Instagram

          Cano, 29, rose to social media fame on Instagram and OnlyFans by creating original content and has nearly 13 million followers on Instagram. She resided in Newport Beach, California, and studied Microbiology at San Diego State University, according to her LinkedIn profile. Cano is also known as “the Mexican Kim Kardashian” owing to her Kardashian-Esque physique.

          We have always said that the famed Brazilian Butt-lift is the most dangerous of all cosmetic procedures and not to be undertaken lightly.  Perhaps the most serious, and apparently one of the most common, risks of buttock lift surgery is a fat embolism.  This occurs because a BBL procedure involves liposuctioning fat from one area and pumping it into your butt.  If this is incorrectly administered the operation can end in catastrophe.  If somebody injects the fat into the wrong place and goes deep into the muscle, then the chances of the patient getting muscle necrosis – muscle death – and fat going into the vascular system (which you can die from) are increased.

          It is also worth mentioning that not all the initial improvement will stand the test of time. Your bum will be 50 to 60 per cent smaller six months after their operation. This is just a natural body process as the implant settles in. Recovery also takes patience and can be extremely painful for the first week – and not following aftercare advice can lead to results healing badly.

          It is worth considering the non-surgical alternatives for improving the shape/size of your butt and we covered this in a previous post about Scupltra. But if you really do wish to go the surgical route with liposuction, then choose your surgeon carefully.  We list many great cosmetic surgeons on our site but you should check out your shortlist with care. You should not let cost be the deciding factor on this high-risk procedure.

          The tragic loss of a young IG influencer rams home the dark side of the industry when social media stars push themselves and their bodies to the limits in order to attract and retain valuable followers.  It's a real pity.  One would so want this to be fake news.

          How Long Should I Wait To Have Sex Again?

          Sex is a healthy part of most people's lives, and wondering when you can resume having sex after plastic surgery is natural.    Nowadays, many women are opting for cosmetic surgery that enhances their sex lives, such as labiaplasty and vaginal rejuvenation (designer vaginas).  Even so, asking your cosmetic surgeon  “when can I have sex again?” makes some patients feel rather shy. We want to assure you that your surgeon won't blush at the question and will be happy to discuss the topic with you because they know just how important it is to be aware of physical restrictions during recovery.

          Many factors govern how long you should wait before you test out the benefits of your surgery.  It all depends on the procedure, your comfort level, and your body's ability to heal.  With your new and improved look, you and your partner may be keen to regain your rhythm, but patience is a virtue here, and it is wise to take your time healing before you get energetic. Many women find that waiting also makes a return to activity even better than expected!

          Apart from the obvious genital procedures, other surgeries can enhance your sexual life.

          Expressing the Right to Orgasm

          In point of fact, the  Aesthetic Journal of surgery has said that Breast Enlargement and Body Contouring may also improve sex lives. Is known to make people look younger and feel better about themselves. Now new research suggests that it may also improve sex life and the ability to achieve orgasm.  It has also b been suggested that by combining this form of surgery with specialist female arousal gels such as Vigorelle can boost the female orgasm to been greater heights.

          These gels work by means of the innovative transdermal delivery system. By combining botanical extracts and therapeutic nutrients with natural skin permeation enhancers such as olive squalane, important ingredients can cross the lipid barrier of the epidermis. The result is greatly enhanced sexual sensations in a woman's body.  It makes sense to combine these natural remedies with surgery or even try them for a while before taking the surgical option.

          Sex and Cosmetic Surgery For Confidence

          It is no secret that plastic surgery enhances body image and restores self-confidence. And it is well known that if someone feels better about themselves, they become more sexual.  Guy Stofman, MD, told  WebMD. that there is now substantive data to show how self-image can impact sexual satisfaction. Stofman is chief of plastic surgery at Mercy Hospital in Pittsburgh and a clinical assistant professor of plastic surgery at the University of Pittsburgh.  Stofman cautions, with I suppose, a half-smile

          “We don't want the populace to think, ‘Hey, if I have my breasts done, I will have more sex,'” he says. “You don't have cosmetic surgery to have better sex. This is just an added perk.”

          Regardless of why we may choose to undergo one of these procedures, their degree of success is, to a large extent, also decided by how satisfied we are with the end result.

          Research has shown that ladies who opt for one of the more common types of genital cosmetic surgery, such as labiaplasties, are generally pleased with the results.

          One review gives an overall satisfaction rate of 90–95 per cent for women, while postoperative sexual satisfaction ranks at 80–85 per cent.

          Make peace with your vagina..

          One only has to listen to the story of 38 yr old Vicky, a New Yorker, who did a ‘tell-all to ‘Women's Health' website about sex and cosmetic surgery.   Vicky apparently had been unhappy with her labia and vagina for a long time.  it made her inhibited in her sexual relations and left her feeling insecure.   Now, having had the aforementioned pruning and trimming done in her ‘lady garden' Vicky is a new enthusiast of oral sex and other intimacies.   Her enthusiasm for her designer vagina is compelling:

          I love it. At the two-and-a-half-week mark, I said, “Oh my god, I can't believe how amazing I look!” I didn't realize just how amazing I looked and how wonderful I felt until I did my follow up six weeks after, though. When I saw my before pictures, I said, “Please close the book! I don't want to look at it. I can't.” It was already out of my head. At that point, I didn't want to see what I used to look like. I just want to show it off. I felt like I was part of the It Crowd.

          And as for sexual pleasure, she says ” The sensation has quadrupled. I've always been able to have clitoral orgasms, but it's intensified the experience. You just want to scream like Tarzan. It's just that intense. ”

          When you get this kind of feedback it is easy to see why women are interested in sex and cosmetic surgery.  It is every woman's right to obtain their greatest physical satisfaction in their sexual relationships and it a branch of cosmetic surgery that will be with us for a long while to come.

          So where should you go for your geniital makeover assuming we get back the right to travel.?  All the hot spots are good for vaginal makeovers.  You can get the work done in Thailand, Mexico, Costa Rica, Indonesia and certainly Turkey. But for the moment you are probably going to be looking at your own homebase – the US or maybe the UK or Australia    Pricewise, a labiaplasty in London for example would cost betwee $3k and $4k which is much the same as in California.  In Lithuania for example Nordesthetics charge about 40% less and in Istanbul you will pay around $2k.    But these days with lock downs and a heavily disrupted medical tourism sector your choices are more constrained.

          The road to transgender has been much in the news recently as the UK legal system made a key ruling last week.  Gender reassignment surgery has been booming both in the UK and worldwide as the LGBT community push for the right to change one's sexual identity to be seen as a basic human right.

          We consider gender-confirming surgery to be an important topic for discussion since it touches at the very basis of human identity.  It is a miracle that we now possess the surgical skills to perform such major transformations in the human body.  it is also vital that this incredible power is used wisely since there are often many psychological elements to consider.  Puberty is a very difficult and confusing time for many young people and I feel that as a society we should help them gently find the best path for their adult lives.   If this means fixing the age of transgender consent at 16 it is probably a wise move.

          Keira Bell, 23, brought the action against the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust after regretting taking puberty blockers at the age of 16 that she feared may have damaged her ability to have children. From now on children aged under 16 will need court approval in England and Wales to access puberty blockers

          Keira Bell, who “detransitioned” in her early 20s and now lives as a woman, had argued for puberty blockers to only be prescribed for under-18s with a court order.

          The judges said 16 and 17-year-olds were presumed to be able to consent to medical treatment, but doctors may want to seek court orders before prescribing them puberty blockers due to the “experimental” nature of the treatment. It is important that prospective candidates for transition are given all the latest transgender surgery facts to help them decide.

          But, for those who are looking at the topic of transgender surgery our design team have produced this helpful infographic showing transgender surgery facts to make the process easy to follow.  You can. also, check our listings of gender confirmation surgeries here.

You are advised not to wear bras or to use particular types of bras depending on their recovery phase. The cut and design of the bra matters.

          The outcomes from breast augmentation tend to come in gradually, which indicates that the bra size that fits you best a month after surgical treatment might not be the exact same bra size you're using two or three months afterward.

Don't stock your wardrobe with a lot of brand-new bras right away, as in a couple of weeks or months they might be too little or big for you.

If your lower chest steps 29 or 30 inches, you wear a band size 34. It's likely that this number is the same now as it was prior to your surgery. Subtract that number from your band size to determine which cup you are. If it's 4 inches, you wear a D cup, and so on. It can take a lot of trial and mistake to discover the ideal bra after your surgery. Bras can differ substantially in size and shape from one brand name to the next.  If you live in a big city you will certainly find a shop that has specialist staff to advise you on your ideal bra size and shape.    All the effort you put into your breast augmentation surgery will be rewarded when you look extra-stunning in your low cut cocktail dress.
