Everyone wants to look their best. In a world where appearance matters, we all want to make the best impression possible. Many people are turning to cosmetic surgery to help them do that. Whether it is to fight the signs of ageing or to boost what Mother Nature has already given us, plastic surgery is becoming more and more accepted.
In Australia alone, citizens are spending almost a billion dollars in plastic surgery. With excellent facilities in cosmetic surgery Gold Coast, Sydney and other parts of Australia are being besieged with willing clients. So what exactly are all these Australians hoping to fix or improve? Well here’s a list of the most common cosmetic procedures performed in Australia:
With people living longer than ever before, signs of ageing making an appearance are inevitable. Many people fight this with a facelift. In addition to tightening your skin, a facelift – depending on your needs – will shift skin, fat, and muscle to create a younger, more refreshed you.
The procedure involves making incisions along your hairline and behind your ears. The surgeon can then manipulate the skin and tissue to create your desired look.
Breast augmentation involves the implantation of silicone or saline implants to create a visual of larger breasts. By choosing a cup size, you can increase the size of your breasts as you wish. Depending on your preference, you can also choose to change the shape of your breast. This remains one of the most popular procedures, worldwide.
Breast lifts are to improve the weight of breasts that have begun to sag due to age. Here, the surgeon removes excess skin and tightens the tissue to create firmer breasts.
As the name suggests, liposuction is the process of removing unwanted fat from the body by way of suction. Some of the most popular places for people to use liposuction on are the stomach, hips, thighs, and waist. This procedure is prevalent amongst both women and men as a way of body improvement.
Fat that is present just below the skin is liquefied through a variety of methods and then suctioned through small tubes.
As one gets older, skin loses its elasticity and begins to hang. When this occurs on the top lid of your eyes, it can be an obstacle to your vision. On your bottom lid, this creates wrinkles and ‘bags’ around your eyes. To minimize this ageing process, people have the excess fat or skin removed to create a fresher, more youthful look.
This surgery is not just strictly for cosmetic purposes. Sometimes, deformities in the nasal passage will hinder breathing in people and cause chronic problems. These can be corrected by fixing the nasal bones with a nose job. However, whether done for aesthetic or cosmetic purposes, rhinoplasty still remains one of the more popular cosmetic procedures. It can lengthen or shorten your nose, change the slope or angle of your nose, and even alter the tip. In short, it reshapes your nose to fit the dimensions of your face better.
Rhinoplasty is achieved by either removing tissue and cartilage from the nose or adding tissue – either from synthetic fillers or from another part of your body.
So, these are the most popular plastic surgeries undergone in Australia. Did this list surprise you, or is there a procedure on it that you, yourself, have always wanted?
