Mark Kohout - Friday, September 27, 2013
  • Plastic surgery is best performed premenopausal for maximum benefits. After 60, the skin structure changes and accurate results aren’t always achievable.
  • Men are becoming more self-conscious. An estimated 15% of elective surgeries are performed on male. Men aged between 40-50 bracket have shown an increase in interest in non-surgical enhancements.
  • Botox is made from the toxins of certain bacteria types. When used correctly, fantastic results can be achieved.
  • The majority of surgeries are performed on middle-class patients. The American Society of Plastic Surgery said that most earn under $80000 and use disposable income to increase self-confidence.
  • Recovery time is minimal. Most people are able to resume normal activities within weeks of surgery while non-surgical procedures can be performed on a work lunch-break.
  • There is a big difference between plastic and cosmetic surgeons. Always check a surgeon has proper certifications and accreditations.
  • There isn’t a lot of difference between having surgery in a hospital or in a private surgery, bar access to specialised equipment. Ensure the day procedure centre has access to hospital transport in case of an emergency.
  • Breast implants are the most popular elective surgery in America.
