THE GREAT BRITISH SURGICAL STATS - MY VIEWS
Hi lovelies! Recently I was sent this infographic from New Birkdale Clinic on cosmetic surgeries and the 'surgery trends' in the UK. I was actually quite surprised by some of the statistics and numbers on these, particularly the above about the number of surgeries on Women vs Men. I guess I expected there to be more surgeries on Women, however I think the difference here is huge!
In my opinion, as much as the idea of cosmetic surgery terrifies me, I do understand why people do it and disagree with anyone who says it's wrong. I do think the number between men and women is slightly alarming, as I know there are a lot of pressures on women to look a certain way and I don't think surgery is the answer if your reasons are because you're jealous of girls in magazines or of Kylie Jenner's lips, however if you are insecure about something and surgery would make you feel better and more confident, then I personally don't think anyone should tell you that that's wrong.
What are your thoughts on this? Would you ever consider surgery for anything?
