Varicose veins can be contorted or amplified. As you spend the majority of the time standing upright and walking, the veins most commonly affected are in the legs and feet. This is due to increased pressure in the veins of the lower body. For many people, varicose and spider veins are simply a cosmetic concern, however for others, they can cause discomfort and aching pain. Sometimes they can lead to more-serious problems. Self-care can ease discomfort and prevent the affected area from getting any worse, for example: Exercising Weight loss Wearing loose clothes Elevating your legs Other options include adding...
As we get older we may start to notice areas of our bodies going south, breasts start to sag and we notice jowls appearing on our jawline. What you may also notice is the space between your nose and your upper lip may gradually start to widen. This is all due to gravity. Surgical enhancements like a lip lift or facelift can help restore our youthful look.
The Bella Vou clinic in Tunbridge Wells, Kent, is celebrating the achievements of lead surgeon Amir Nakhdjevani, who has been named as one of 2016’s top influencers in cosmetic medicine by RealSelf.
When I first meet someone, I’m naturally drawn to their eyes. I can always tell what kind of person they are just by looking into their eyes. Eyes can tell a story about a person’s life and depending on lifestyle and other factors, the eyes can be one of the first places to show signs of aging.
Mums have never had it so tough, celebrities are pinging back to their pre-baby shape in a matter of weeks after giving birth. With the help of their personal trainers and excessive dieting, not to mention a team of super nannies on hand 24/7 to look after the new baby while they get as much rest as possible. For most of us, we have to juggle family life and go back to work on half the amount of sleep we’re used to!
For many people, hair loss only seems to be noticeable in old age. Your hair naturally starts to thin out as the structure gets weaker, so many of us naturally lose some or all of our hair in the process. For others, hair loss can start as early as your twenties and we are starting to see an increase of male patients, especially who are not yet thirty, asking for hair transplant procedures to increase density and cover up balding patches.
Weddings are filled with decisions. Satin or lace, beef or chicken, and for some women, lift or augmentation? Cosmetic surgery procedures, both invasive and non-invasive, are becoming the norm and just one more box on the wedding checklist to tick off for some brides. There is a lot of planning and preparation that goes into your wedding day; the dress, food, decorations, invitations, location and honeymoon. For many it can be completely overwhelming and stressful, especially when everyone wants to give their opinion. On top of all of this the Bride and Groom also have the worry of looking good...
For many women, a new cleavage is the recognition of a lifelong dream, but having a voluptuous, more feminine body also means that the patient has to accept a new body image and shop accordingly. So you’ve had a breast augmentation and are absolutely loving your new bust line. Whether you’ve only gone up one size or really jumped in and had a significant change in breast size you are probably thinking about when can you go crazy and buy a whole new wardrobe full of bras?! Wait…… as much as you are probably dying to go into a Victoria’s...
A top cosmetic surgeon has warned that thread lifts are often miss-sold by 'pop up' clinics with poorly trained staff that are not qualified plastic surgeons. In many cases the threads are used on patients who are not fully informed and are not suited to treat their concerns, resulting in a poor result and a waste of money, despite their growing popularity in the UK.
At Bella Vou we are well known for offering many cosmetic treatments under Local Anaesthetic. In fact this is what our lead surgeon, Mr Amir Nakhdjevani, is renowned for after pioneering his Concept Facelift. We get many enquiries from patients looking for cosmetic surgery with minimal downtime so they can socialise shortly afterwards without having to worry about drains or bandages.
Women should keep the right to choose a 'designer vagina' and it must not become a crime for women to opt for surgery. The call comes as the Government considers outlawing such procedures under a review of female genital mutilation, even though they are commonly carried out to address low self-esteem or physical discomfort.
Humans are said to have between 20,000 to 25,000 different genes that determine our makeup from height, hair and eye colour to how we will age. However, our skin does not have a specific gene that determines its traits. It is made up of a combination of different genes which affect the ageing process. There are two ways in which we age – through external factors such as sun exposure, known as extrinsic ageing and through the natural ageing process, known as intrinsic. We inherit intrinsic ageing from our parents. Several factors such as the risk of stretch marks, varicose...
