Beyond the original horseracing reference associated with the term, a nip-tuck refers to just a little bit of cosmetic surgery, often involving just a little bit of plastic surgery too. While we are indeed using the term in its cosmetic surgery capacity, it’s perhaps a bit of an overstatement referring to what I’m discussing today as real nipping-and-tucking.
Nevertheless, there are indeed some means through which to get the cosmetic treatment you need which often entails some integrated medical treatment as well, at a mere fraction of what you’d have to pay had you chosen to go with a specialist such as a plastic surgeon. Nipping and tucking can be that much more affordable and it can be deployed in a little bit more of a “natural” manner.
You don’t have to go under the knife for example if you want to reduce some visible signs of scarring on any identified surface of your skin, even though a consultation with a cosmetic surgeon would have otherwise probably suggested that that is indeed the best route to go. Your success at effective treatment in this way depends on a couple of factors of course, such as what the cause of the condition you’re suffering may be and where on your body you’re experiencing it.
Other factors such as how long it has been the way it is may also come into play, but the point is going under the knife should probably only be your last resort since there are more natural and affordable ways of treatment.
Talk to a pharmacist at Independent Pharmacy for instance, about a range of suitable skin treatment solutions which can be deployed in the treatment of specific conditions and you can even save yourself some money on a consultation fee you’d otherwise have to pay to visit the doctor.
Don’t wait until you put the money together for something like plastic surgery if you can effectively treat some seemingly serious ailments with some OTC options available at the pharmacy.
