Cosmetic surgery 'can boost a person's confidence'

29 February 2012

There are many benefits afforded to people who decide to pursue cosmetic surgery, one expert has highlighted.

Stephen Handisides, from the health and beauty website, believes that such procedures "can greatly improve confidence and contribute to a happier you".

He pointed out that evidence of aging, which can include dark circles around the eyes, a double chin, wrinkles and hair loss, can knock a person's confidence.

On the other hand, Mr Handisides acknowledged: "When someone feels confident, it can have lasting effects that extend far beyond one's exterior appearance."

The expert went on to note that there are more cosmetic surgery options open to Brits than ever before today, from facelifts and tummy tucks to such non-surgical procedures as Botox and dermal fillers.

"If you're feeling unhappy or self conscious about the signs of ageing, cosmetic surgery can certainly take years off your true age," he concluded.

The advice follows on from a study on Channel 4 reality show Ten Years Younger which revealed that a nip and tuck procedure can make a person look and feel up to seven years younger.
