Recently, there has been a rise in young people looking at cosmetic surgery options. With student deals regularly being advertised for procedures such as fillers making it cheaper than ever before, have you ever considered getting a procedure whilst at University?

No never crossed my mind, dont even know what i would change tbh.

That said I do know a couple girls in early twenties who've gotten lip-fillers etc. People can do what they want, but I just hope people dont feel a social pressure to improve themselves this way.

I've had a rhinoplasty operation during my first year of university. I wasn't given any "student discounts" for it haha it was just something I have always wanted to get done (I broke my nose when I was 8 and it just looked terrible).

I mean I got a tiny bit of dermal filler tbh. I would’ve got it regardless. I didn’t get it using student discount. I know I DONT NEED it at all but I WANTED it.


I don’t like how normalised it’s become though.

I would get plastic surgery yes, in or out of uni (I'm in uni atm). I've always wanted a breast reduction but one of my friends has lip fillers and they look great so I was considering it too but I know it can be painful so I'm scared to. I'd also probably have plastic surgery on my jawline if I had the chance aswell as I have a small lower mandable and a recessed chin which I think looks awful.
Maybe rhinoplasty while I'm at it as my nose is very straight and I'd prefer it to have a slight curve to it.

Not whilst at university. Id rather focus on the essential things so I know I'm going to have the money to get by on throughout my degree.

It's something I might consider in future though, providing I can afford it.

Same here... I’ve looked up how much it costs and it’s about £2500 for the jaw implant or less for filler injections but they ain’t permanent.

I used to not be self-conscious then multiple, unrelated people pointed it out 😂

Yes defo, I’ve wanted cosmetic surgery since I was in year 10, I’ve always hated my nose. I really want a rhinoplasty done and hopefully I’m getting it done this year December or next year January by one of the best doctors!!!🙏🏼

Maybe.
I've looked into a few cosmetic procedures and several non-surgical options to remove scars.
Cosmetic surgery can significantly change lives for the better, improving both appearance and self-confidence.
It should not be viewed casually and all the risks should be openly discussed in detail.
No procedure should be undertaken to appease horrible bullies or demanding partners.

I'm none too keen on needles or blood and have no desire to ending up looking like Jocelyn Wildenstein. :eek:
But If I had an accident that left serious visible damage or some less invasive cosmetic surgery was recommended to aid my appearance/career prospects- then I'd probably go ahead.

I would never want any form of cosmetic surgery, not even if I was rich. The body I have might not be the most attractive, but it's mine. The one I was given and have always had. It forms part of my identity. And I don't want to lose any part of that identity. Not my nose that points to the right, not my under eye hollows, nothing.

That is what cosmetic surgery should be used for, medical reconstruction. All you need to do is google WWI plastic surgery to see how the progression to what we have today was made.
There is a difference between someone with a facially deformity like a cleft palate and someone who just likes to pump themselves with silicone.
I would find it fake on myself but if people want to do it and it makes them feel better then that's up to them.

Uni is a good time to have procedures because you have the long summer off to recover if you time it right. As a PhD student on a limited budget I only have filler currently and had I been able to afford it on my previous degrees then I would've done it then.

I don’t really approve of cosmetic surgery when young even though I’m fine with people using significant amounts of cosmetics. Women should spend more money on their hair, makeup, nice clothes and health. Men on their body, health and some cosmetics.

When you get above 50 that’s a different matter.
