It’s no secret that cosmetic surgery can go wrong. You’ll have read the tabloids, seen the horrifying pap pictures, and watched the awkward interviews. In the world of celebrity pop culture, nothing goes undocumented, so if there’s ever been a plastic surgery mishap, you’ll have heard about it. 

In today’s blog, we’re looking into the ugly side of cosmetic surgery. We’ll be exploring ways in which cosmetic treatments can go wrong when you visit an unreputable clinic, as well as what Aesthetic Skin Clinic can do for you to ensure everything goes smoothly.  

If you’re looking for a cosmetic skin clinic in GuernseyJersey, or Belfast, we’re here for you. We offer a fantastic range of services, from crows feet treatment to surgery and everything in between. Get in touch to see how we can help you achieve a more confident you. 


When Cosmetic Surgery Goes Wrong 

Hollywood can be brutal when it comes to picking apart celebrity’s looks. Having to look young, beautiful, and photoshopped daily is something most people in the spotlight are used to. Because of this, a lot of celebs opt for cosmetic treatments. The best examples of these treatments go unnoticed due to their natural and non-plastic look. These treatments and surgeries are carried out by reputable clinics with an understanding that less is more. But what happens when you visit a clinic that isn’t as reputable? 

By choosing a practitioner or a surgeon who doesn’t have the proper knowledge and experience, you are putting yourself at risk of infections, disfigurements, and in the worst cases, paralysis. However, it’s not just the medical side effects of a bad surgeon you should consider. 

To maximise their profits, non-professional clinics will go above and beyond to convince you to get more treatments and surgeries than you need. They will try and sell you a product as opposed to helping you achieve confidence in yourself. 

In the media, we often see examples of far too much dermal filler being injected into the lips, leading to over-inflammation and the ‘plastic’ look most people wish to avoid. A side effect of this is uneven lips, lumps, and bumps, often ‘corrected’ by injecting even more filler. This is not the correct way to tackle these issues, but it’s a way for the unreputable practitioners to earn money.

What To Do If Your Cosmetic Surgery Has Turned Ugly 

If you’re unhappy with the outcome of your cosmetic treatment, you must deal with the unsatisfactory results in the correct manner. Here are a couple of tips to consider: 

  • Talk to your surgeon or practitioner. This is a vital first step. You must explain what it is you’re not happy with and seek out their advice. If you’re not comfortable with the advice given, try a different clinic. We’re more than happy to help you out, so get in touch with our friendly, professional team and we’ll go above and beyond to ensure you’re satisfied with your results. 
  • Consider a second procedure. Although this sometimes isn’t the best advice, a second procedure can help in some cases. If you’re unhappy with your breast implants (maybe they feel uneven or larger than you wanted), a corrective procedure such as a breast reduction could be what you need. 


How To Avoid It Happening in The Future 

If you’re interested in further treatments, it’s important to ensure you’re happy with your results the second time. Consider taking these steps to be sure you’re satisfied with your chosen treatments and the clinic providing them: 

  • Do your research. It’s important to look into the clinic you’ll be attending. Read testimonials and reviews, research your surgeon and look at images of their work. Get to know our friendly, professional team members and put a face to a name. 
  • Don’t jump into any treatments. Do not attend a clinic that allows you to book in for treatment without having a consultation. If you’re having surgery, a consultation is vital to discuss what you want, what you don’t want, and what your practitioner recommends. 
  • Take time to think about it. After your consultation, go away and think about the procedure you’re about to undergo. There is no pressure with Aesthetic Skin Clinic; take as much time as you need so you’re certain it’s what you want.
