While cosmetic surgery can be a great way to recover from accidents or to allow the person on the outside to match the person on the inside, many people ignore its helpful benefits due to the belief that it is too costly. In truth, there are several simple surgery options that can be very helpful to anybody and which won’t break the bank when it comes time to pay for them. Presented below are a few options you should consider.


It would be understandable if you confused microdermabrasion for a type of magic. The treatment even uses a metal wand and can make you look younger in a matter of moments. All you need to do in this cosmetic surgery procedure is lie back and relax while the provider passes the microdermabrasion wand over your skin. The wand exfoliates and scrapes away dead skin cells, vacuuming them out of your body and away from your skin. This process smooths out bumps caused by trapped oil, refines skin that has been damaged by dryness, and reduces the size of sun spots. It is an entirely painless procedure that costs between $100 and $450, depending on your location and the individual practice.

Botox Injections

One of the safest, most effective, and most popular cosmetic surgery procedures in the United States, Botox injections can take years off your face and will last for a period of up to four months. Botox contains special purified toxins which block muscle contractions in the area immediately underneath the skin. By doing this they erase frown lines, crow’s feet, and other wrinkles. The procedures takes only a matter of moments and requires a single injection. Depending on where you go to receive a Botox injection, you can spend as little as $150 on this procedure. In areas where treatment is more expensive, the cost still will not be more than $500 and will allow you to look younger for a period of months at a time.


This cosmetic surgery option is targeted toward large varicose veins and spider veins. Small veins can easily be treated through the use of lasers, but this is not the case for larger varicose veins, which makes sclerotherapy necessary. This procedure involves using saline injections to provide extra moisture just below the skin’s surface. By doing this, the large varicose veins around the area eventually become scar tissue and fade away as the body heals. There is some pain involved in this technique, since it involves multiple injections, but the pain is far from severe. Depending on how large your varicose veins are, this treatment can cost as little as $150 and will almost never cost more than $1,000.

Cosmetic surgery can leave you looking and feeling great, and it doesn’t have to break your budget. Any of the treatments listed above are safe, easy, and affordable. Many more similar treatments also provide the perfect intersection between effectiveness, convenience, and affordability. The world of cosmetic surgery is no longer restricted solely to the rich.
