The terms 'cosmetic surgery', 'cosmetic procedures' and 'cosmetic dentistry' are filled with images of botched plastic surgery, dramatic appearance altering before/after photographs and the use of cosmetic procedures among celebrities. While there are gruesome and shocking aspects of cosmetic surgery and appearance altering procedures, I think there are so many that are more common now from botox, laser hair removal, fillers and facelifts to cosmetic dentistry, implants, peels, hair restoration and more.

I personally don't have a problems with anyone having these procedures if they can afford them and if it's something that they fully want to change. I haven't had any 'cosmetic surgery', although I believe that in various areas of the world laser eye surgery would be considered an elective and cosmetic procedure. I don't rule out any form of cosmetic dentistry, procedure or surgery in the future and I have a list of procedures that I'd potentially want in the future.

Teeth Whitening & Cosmetic Dentistry  
One of the most common forms of cosmetic procedures could be cosmetic dentistry which includes procedures such as the fitting of veneers and crowns, implants, orthodontic treatments and teeth whitening. I've tried various at home teeth whitening options with varying levels of success but I would love to have professional teeth whitening sometime in the future. For more information on cheap cosmetic dentistry check out The James Clinic.

Another very common procedure is botox. While the idea of botox (a neurotoxic protein) being injected into my skin does give me the shivers, I think it is procedure I would fully consider in the next 15 to 20 years time, especially for around my eyes. Celebrities from Cindy Crawford, Pamela Anderson and Courtney Cox to Linda Evangelista, Kim Kardashian and potentially (but unconfirmed), Pippa Middleton have had botox. The fear of face freezing is something that puts me off botox but I think with the right clinic and experienced medical professionals (it has to be performed by a licensed medical professional such as a doctor, nurse, dentist etc in the UK) it could be a safe treatment.

Laser Hair Removal & IPL
Last but not least is, along with teeth whitening, the procedure I've been thinking about for the longest time. Laser hair removal is another procedure I've tried at home and I have received mix results although I do need to try the IPL device I have again. The price and potentially the embarrassment (although there is nothing to be embarrassed about) is probably why I haven't enquired about it yet but I hope that it's something I will look into fully next year.

Have you had any cosmetic surgery or cosmetic dentistry? If not, is it something you'd consider in the future? 

please always do your own research before considering any kind of treatment anywhere
