Reasons to Consider Getting Breast Reduction Surgery

If you were to ask a man what he thought about breast reduction surgery, nine times out of ten, he’d tell you that he thought it was a waste of time, in typical male fashion. The man making that comment however, doesn’t know what it’s like to have to live with breasts, and as all of you large chested gals out there will attest to, having large breasts isn’t all that it is cracked up to be. We all know that breast augmentation is the most common and popular cosmetic surgical procedure for when it comes to the breasts, but even so, the number of people having a breast reduction procedure, is, pardon the pun, growing every single year. Ask any woman out there with a pair of naturally large breasts, and she’ll tell you that, in reality, they certainly aren’t always all that they’re cracked up to be. If you’re large chested and find it affecting your life, here’s a look at few reasons why you may wish to consider getting breast reduction surgery.

Three Reasons to Consider Breast Surgery

We’re living in an age in which more and more pressure is being placed on us, especially women, to look their absolute best, and if they don’t, they’re often chastised and scrutinised. Even if you don’t care what other people think of you, it still comes down to what you think about yourself, and if there’s a part of you, or parts, of you, that you aren’t happy with and would like to address, instead of sitting around feeling unhappy, why not take charge of your life and do what makes you happy instead?

Can Cosmetic Surgery Affect Job Satisfaction?

When it comes to the topic of job satisfaction, something that does not instantly spring to mind is the idea of undergoing cosmetic surgery, however this is something that is becoming increasingly prominent. Recent independent studies have shown that workplace self-esteem can be attributed to several factors, with one of the main being physical attractiveness. With the number of people undergoing cosmetic procedures on the rise and with more men than ever looking to alter their bodies in one way or another, particularly with the industry boom in 2015, it’s no surprise to see how this can affect a person’s self-esteem in the workplace.

In recent years we have seen a significant movement towards female empowerment, which has shifted the way that women are perceived in their work environments. While sexism towards female workers still exists and the gender pay gap is under constant review, the majority of workplaces look towards rewarding effort and talent. In the past, the emphasis would have most certainly been on beauty as opposed to know-how and skill when it came to building self-esteem.

However, many also argue that the rise of celebrity culture and the fact that some individuals (both men and women) are catapulted into the limelight and become famous for their appearance, is leading us to take steps backwards when it comes to vanity and the natural confidence in one’s self. This has skewed the idea that beauty is in fact very much revered in the workplace and is a way for people to get ahead of others.

Some also argue that job satisfaction is defined far more by motivational incentives and being able to work in a way that avoids burnouts. Through fair rewards for the work being done and being acknowledged for efforts put into the work employees do, workers are said to be far happier and this is also said to have a significant impact on worker self-esteem.

Many believe that supervisors should become better trained at avoiding the unconscious bias that comes with hiring workers through not being swayed by the appearance and attractiveness of a candidate. It is unconscious bias that is said to be the biggest self-esteem killer when it comes to job searching and overall job satisfaction. The questions asked in the interview process and the way that a hiring manager selects those who are interviewed should be devoid of unconscious bias that is so ingrained in most of us. While presentation is important in showing your professionalism when attending an interview, it is vital that people do not feel judged for their appearance or believe that it will make an impact on their career successes.

If you feel that your overall confidence is under threat based on your physical appearance and you would like to explore a way to boost self-esteem, then be sure to get in touch with us at Longevita. We offer a variety of cosmetic procedures, both invasive and non-invasive, so you can get the looks that you have always dreamed of, helping you to boost our self-esteem.

Are People Moving Further Towards Medical Tourism?

While medical tourism is still somewhat in its infancy, a number of statistics have shown that the industry is experiencing steady growth over the past few years. There are a number of top medical tourism destinations around the world, with Turkey being one of the most popular, that have the makings of a world-class healthcare destination due to a number of factors.

Things such as government investment in healthcare infrastructure, potential for cost savings, tourism infrastructure, reputation for clinical excellence, best practices and state-of-the-art medical technology and internationally trained and experienced medical staff. Here at Longevita, we are proud to state that we tick all the boxes and are here to show just a few of the benefits that heading to Turkey to one of our facilities for a cosmetic procedure.

While there has been a steady growth in medical tourism, some countries like the UK have actually experienced a sharp decline in the number of cosmetic surgery procedures being conducted – with 2016 seeing a 40% drop alone. This shows how much of an impact medical tourism could be having on the country, with a lot of this shift being due to the much lower cost yet high quality treatment that patients can experience when they choose to have their procedures carried out in Turkey. Here, we’re taking a look at whether people are moving further towards medical tourism, the effects this could be having, and why the industry is experiencing such growth.

40% Fall In Cosmetic Surgery Procedures in the UK

The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons released statistics that showed procedures in the UK fell by a whopping 40% in 2016 when compared to the boom in the industry in 2015. While the report showed that breast augmentation remained the most popular surgery out of all of them, the statistics show a significant decline – from just 30,750 procedures carried out in 2016, compared to 51,140 in 2015. The report also showed that both men and women are choosing cheaper, non-invasive procedures such as chemical peels as opposed to regular surgeries, displaying how cost is one of the biggest influencers when it comes to people choosing cosmetic procedures.

Why Are People Choosing Medical Tourism?

As mentioned above, one of the main influencers when it comes to people choosing where to have a medical procedure carried out is cost. The second biggest influencer is quality of the medical facilities that they are looking to have their procedure carried out in. Medical tourism in a number of countries, in particular Turkey, offers low cost procedures at some of the best facilities in the world.

In Turkey’s case, the government have put a lot of funding and accreditation into the medical tourism industry there, meaning the facilities are high class and the prices of the procedures can remain relatively low. In many cases, the procedures are available at a fraction of the cost of having the same procedure carried out in a facility of similar standards when compared to the prices of the UK and USA. Here at Longevita, we also pride ourselves on having some of the world’s best plastic surgeons which is another factor that is beginning to influence people to choose medical tourism.
