After months of being shut up inside with only our nearest and dearest, even the most vain among us have started to neglect our appearance a bit. After all, what’s the point in wearing lipstick if the only living thing that’s going to see it is a dog? And will your three-year-old really appreciate those towering heels? Or are you better off in a pair of comfy and practical Uggs?
And that’s before we think about the lockdown weight gain. This last one has been tough on us all. It’s been cold, it’s been dark and it’s been just after Christmas, so is it any wonder if we’ve turned to the comforts of the treat cupboard?
So perhaps it’s time to pull ourselves together and get our game face on. If you think you might need a bit of extra help, here are our top cosmetic surgeries to get you looking and feeling your best:
Jowl tightening/filler facelift
If there’s one thing these pesky masks have been good for, it’s covering up the lower half of our face. So no one needs to know how saggy our jowls are getting. However, as we start to meet up outdoors without the masks, what can we do then?
Mr Michael Mouzakis performs a treatment known as the filler facelift. This is a totally non-invasive alternative to cosmetic surgeries, but it is a highly effective way to lift, shape and rejuvenate the face. It lifts the jowls and gives an overall more youthful appearance. You can also expect natural looking results, immediately.
Wrinkle-smoothing injections can also be used to tighten the jowl area, as well as smoothing away any lines that may have appeared over the course of lockdown.
If your problem is less a result of ageing, and more down to an overabundance of chocolate, Micro Lipo is a great way to remove stubborn pockets of fat.
A minimally invasive procedure, Micro Lipo uses small cannulas to suck fat out of certain areas. This is most commonly performed on the upper arms, thighs, tummy, knees or under the chin.
It’s not a cure-all solution, but you can expect long-lasting results after this minimally invasive treatment. It is important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regime both before and after treatment to maximise the results.
Stress can do terrible things to your hairline, so it’s no surprise that many men have found their hair loss has worsened considerably over lockdown.
If this is the case for you, why not bite the bullet and opt for a hair transplant? Techniques have improved immeasurably over the past decade. Mr Michael Mouzakis offers advanced Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplant surgery. This is one of the most up-to-date and effective hair restoration procedures, which offers optimal results with minimal scarring.
You need to shave your head for the operation, which can be passed off as a style choice in itself. And while you might want to wear a hat for the first week or two, the scarring fades quickly, and within a couple of months you should see a whole new hairline growing in.
