Whether you’re for or against invasive aesthetic transformations, it’s a booming industry with new technologies advancing treatments all the time. 2019 looks set to see the demand for cosmetic surgery procedures further increase, with a trend for truly natural-looking results. We asked experts from The Private Clinic of Harley Street, one of the country’s leading cosmetic surgery groups, and influential industry figure cosmetic doctor Dr Esho, to share their new year ‘tweakment’ predictions, below.
6. Same-day varicose vein removal
A survey of 1000 UK men and women conducted via OnePoll found that over two thirds of Brits admit to feeling self-conscious wearing certain clothes because of their varicose veins and spider veins. Dr Dynesh Rittoo, vascular surgeon at The Private Clinic of Harley Street hypothesises; “I think this is down to the ever-increasing role of social media with everyone wanting to look as good as their favourite celebrity or influencer.”
The response? “I now treat varicose veins with a minimally-invasive method called Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA) which can be delivered under local anaesthetic and enables the patient to leave the clinic on the same day as their treatment.” Another ‘tweakment’ no one need know about.
