The poor can also enjoy cosmetic surgery – Experts

The belief that that cosmetic surgery is an exclusive treatment for the rich has been disproved. This is because experts have confirmed that the poor and middle class Nigerians can as well access the treatment and give their body the perfect look of their dream.

The scientists who spoke recently, during a press briefing to flag-off a Body Art Cosmetic Surgery Centre in Lagos, observed that majority of Nigerians want to have that perfect look, and added that many of them do not know how to go about it, while some believes only the wealthy people can access the treatment.

According to them, the cosmetic surgery centre was established to accommodate Nigerians who would love to have the perfect body of their dream, even as the noted that the cost of services of the new centre is within the reach of average Nigerian who will be provided with personalised treatments using state-of-the-arts procedures with highly skilled medical team.

The lead consultant for the centre, Dr. Guillermo Bluggerman, a plastic surgeon and a specialist in reconstruction and aesthetics, said with perfect hands, cosmetic surgeries often does not come with side effects, as against what some people experience when they visit quacks or centres with sub-standard equipments.

Bluggerman, who has made significant contributions in the area of transplant surgery and body hair, said the cosmetic treatment also includes giving people with hair loss the opportunity to have their hairs back.

Explaining the various cosmetic surgeries that are carried out at the centre, he said Nigerians need not worry anymore about how to get their desired body, as the centre was there to offer solutions in that regard.

On breast augmentation, he said: “The procedure is done to enhance the size and improve the appearance of the breast, using implants or excess fat from other parts of the patient’s body.

“Among other procedure is liposuction; this is done to trim and reshape specific parts of the body, by removing unwanted fat deposits,” adding that for those who were involved in exercise and still haven’t been able to remove some particular unwanted fats, they can access liposuction treatment, as this would remove them and sculpt the body into a more desirable shape. Liposuction can be carried out on the thigh, arms, abdomen, knees, buttocks, calves, ankles, the back, among others.” he said.

For butt enlargement, he explained that the procedure involves enhancing the size of the buttocks to improve shape appearance, as well as accentuate feminism. He added that it can be done by inserting artificial implants into the buttocks or fats from other parts of the body, which gives it volume and an appealing shape.

According to him, age, pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight gain and weight loss, are part of the factors responsible for sagging breast, adding that with breast lifting, the breast can return to its previous shape. “During breast lifting, excess skin and fats are removed to make them firmer with youthful shape, which greatly enhances appearance.”

On his part, the Managing Director, Nordica Fertility Centre, Dr. Abayomi Ajayi, collaborating earlier views and said that it wrong to think that cosmetic surgery is an exclusive treatment for the rich, even as she insisted the that poor and middle class Nigerians can equally access the treatment and give their body the perfect look they dream of.

Ajayi said: “Despite the fact that majority of Nigerians want to have that perfect look, most of them do not know how to go about it, while some believes only the wealthy people can access the treatment.”

“Here in Nigeria, cosmetic surgery is still discussed on a hush hush level, as most people do not like to talk about it. But in places like Italy, you see people clamouring for cosmetic surgery, because they want to look good,” he added.

The fertility expert further explained that the cosmetic surgery centre was established to accommodate Nigerians who would love to have the perfect body of their dream, adding that the centre was pocket friendly and gives personalised treatments using state-of-the-arts procedures with highly skilled medical team.

“The centre offers variety of procedures like liposuction, tummy tuck, breast augmentation, breast lift, cheek and chin augmentation, vagina tightening, butt enlargement, botox, among others. Those who have concerns about their body and would want to improve their looks can access treatments at the centre,” he stated.

He also added that with the establishment of the centre, Nigerians would not have to fly abroad for cosmetic surgeries, as this would cut cost of transportation, feeding and accommodation in a foreign land.
