Facial Exercises And Cosmetic Surgery: To Do Or Not To Do?

Facial exercises, or cosmetic surgery, in the quest to look younger, or for feature improvement, are all about choice after weighing up the pros and cons.  We explore the advantages of both options.
You get 2 types of cosmetic surgery: aesthetics and reconstructive.  Aesthetics or cosmetic is when you want to enhance or improve upon a certain feature of one’s appearance. Reconstructive surgery is repairing a deformity or damage e.g. Help for an accident or burn victim.
Cosmetic surgery has the following advantages:
1.       Cosmetic surgery has fast, radical results. After healing, you can literally look 10 to 15 years younger in a space of about 3 weeks.

2.       Cosmetic surgery, in the form of repairing or reconstructive procedures, can work wonders for the patient to permanently improve his or her appearance.

3.       Depending on the skills of your surgeon, you can get the exact result that you seek.

4.       One can concentrate on very specific areas on the face and neck, like under or around the eyes, or by lifting and cutting away skin to eradicate “turkey neck”.

5.       One’s confidence levels will improve because of the psychological aspects. You look better, so you feel better, even invincible!

6.       Cosmetic surgery and plastic surgery can correct certain defects or malformations of the face to make you look better, or younger.

7.       These days, cosmetic surgery is cheaper than it used to be, and the risk of plastic or cosmetic surgery gone wrong is rare, due to strict medical standards and regulations.
Face exercises, which are performed by the patient using their own fingertips, on the other hand, have the following advantages:
1.       You are in control of your own transformation to looking years younger, and not a cosmetic surgeon.

2.       The results are permanent if you maintain a facial workout program or regimen. The more you work the points on the face, the better the results, much like being in the gym!

3.       It’s totally free to perform the facial exercises because it’s a form of non-surgical facelift.

4.       No doctors or surgeons, no scalpel cutting into your face, no stitches or scarring, which means that your procedure is non-invasive.

5.       You can perform the facial workout anywhere: at home, in traffic jams, at the bus stop, while watching television etc.

      6.       Facial exercises and toning open up the channels and nodal points in the face and neck so that blood can flow into the cells and skin, thereby nourishing them.

     7.       Not only will wrinkles be smoothed out, but you will also lift sagging face skin,    eradicate hog jowls, and restore colour to the face and neck.

On deciding which avenue to take between facial exercises and cosmetic surgery, you need to know what your budget is, and to be ready to accept the albeit small, risk of plastic surgery gone wrong. Also remember that the results that you’re looking for are fast, so they will be instantly noticed by friends, colleagues, and family. If you don’t mind other people knowing that you’ve had some sort of cosmetic surgery procedure, then this may be the way to go. Just remember that you might have to stay at home and out of sight for a while until the bruising subsides and the bandages are taken off.

I personally prefer yoga facial exercises because they save me money and the hassle of seeing a plastic surgeon, plus I don’t want to risk any negative cosmetic surgery side effects. When I first started a face exercise workout, it took a while for me to see the positive effects, because it’s not as radical as cosmetic surgery.

My friends and family actually started commenting about the fact that I was looking fresher and more youthful, and that my cheeks appeared to be rosier. This was great encouragement for me to continue and even step up the routines of my facial exercise program.

Even though I was sceptical in the beginning, I am now a proponent of this form of non-surgical facelift, and I look years younger than when I started out; just remember that it takes about 20 minutes a day using your fingertips for the first month. After that, simple facial toning maintenance of about 2 to 3 times a week will do the trick perfectly.  It just takes a bit of dedication when going the facial exercises route as opposed to the cost, risk, and temporary results of cosmetic surgery.

At the end of the day it’s your looks, so it’s your choice as to whether to use cosmetic surgery or facial exercises, in your endeavours to look years younger.
