Cosmetic procedures are incredibly popular. They do vary in their level of invasiveness, from injectables to surgery. Improving your skin and face has become the norm, and a lot of people choose to undergo cosmetic treatments in order to look younger than their age, or deal with the ‘flaws’ they dislike in their appearance. The biggest question for most people is what form of treatment to go for – fillers or surgery. There are several factors that you will need to consider when choosing which form of treatment is right for you. Keep reading to find out more.
Fillers or Surgery? – Consider your Age
One of the biggest deciding factors in the severity or invasiveness of the treatments is your age. Younger clients can often opt for less invasive treatments like filler because they will be just as effective, and when the treatments are started when the client is younger, the issues often don’t progress far enough for surgery to be a necessity. On the other hand, if you are older or your issues more severe, then surgery could be the best option to help you to achieve the look that you want.
Your choices may also be limited by your chosen practitioner too. They will advise you on what they are prepared to do and what they aren’t. Take their advice on whether to go for fillers or surgery. Some people choose a practitioner before they narrow down the treatments that they want to do simply because they like the work that that specific practitioner does.

When selecting a practitioner, it is also important that you ensure that they have all of the necessary qualifications and certifications to carry out the treatment that you want. It is all well and good looking at before and afters, but it often comes down to the trainer; for example, the Derma Institute is renowned for its practices, and therefore their trainees are also able to perform their techniques.
Will Fillers or Surgery Give You the Look You Want to Achieve?
Obviously, the look that you want to achieve will also heavily influence which route you will need to take in terms of cosmetic procedures. There is increased interest in the non-surgical approach in recent years e.g. like the non-surgical nose job. This is when the filler is used to change the shape of your nose; however, while it can be manipulated, it obviously cannot make your nose smaller and therefore won’t always be the best solution depending on the end result that you want to achieve.
Fillers or Surgery? – Your Budget Is Crucial
Finally, your budget will also play a huge role in whether you choose fillers or surgery. Some treatments might be available on the NHS. However, this depends on the reasons for the procedures. By and large, injectables are a lot cheaper than surgery. If your budget won’t allow you to pay for the surgery at this minute, you can compromise with fillers. Or you can choose to save up until you can afford surgery. Some providers will also offer a payment plan which can make the more expensive treatments more accessible for you.
The Final Verdict
When it comes to choosing between fillers or surgery, it comes down to the individual. There are multiple factors that will affect your decision. Realistically, it is about what you want and the best way to achieve the outcome that you desire. Whether it’s fillers/other non-invasive procedures or surgery, make sure your choice is right for you.
