Patients Reviews – How Accurate Are They Really?

A recent review showed that an increasing percentage of people check online reviews when selecting a Plastic Surgeon!  People today are turning to online forums, message boards and online reviews as an important source of information for making decisions.  These online reviews have replaced personal recommendations from family and friends that we used to rely on.

Breast Reduction Surgery

When most people think of breast surgery, they consider breast augmentation with implants.  While large breasts are considered beautiful in our society, they can also be a burden for some women.  Many people are unaware that large breasts can cause significant emotional and physical suffering.  The good news is that Breast Reduction Surgery can alleviate many of the problems associated with large breasts.  Breast Reduction Surgery is a surgical procedure that decreases the size and reshapes the breast.  With a high satisfaction rate, this is a great option for women that experience discomfort and unhappiness from their breasts.

Breast Asymmetry! How To Overcome Uneven Breasts.

It is perfectly normal for women to have two slightly different shaped or sized breasts.  There are times, however where the difference in size and shape of the breast is quite significant and can affect a woman’s self-esteem.  As much as 25-50% of women report having breast asymmetry that causes them concern. Some women have problems finding a bra that will fit their two different sized breasts in the one bra size.  Other women report looking lob-sided when wearing bathers or certain clothes.

It’s about time! What are the new Restrictions on the use of the title ‘Surgeon’?

Cosmetic Surgery is one of the fastest growing medical fields in Australia, and the demand is only expected to increase.  There has been a recent restriction to the use of the title Cosmetic Surgeon and it has been welcomed by many Australians in the medical field.  It is expected that these changes will reduce the incidence of adverse complications occurring following cosmetic surgery and procedures. There is also the need to educate consumers of the consequences that can arise from failing to check and understand the difference between a properly trained Plastic Surgeon and a Cosmetic Practitioner.

Seeking Out A Good Plastic Surgeon

If you have ever considered plastic surgery such as breast augmentation, you will know that there are a lot of considerations when it comes to choosing a surgeon.  Just as it is with any other Australian service provider, choosing a surgeon can be quite the chore especially when you don’t know what to look out for. Some women lean towards cheaper procedures, however the cheaper option may not always be the best choice for your health.  Other women prefer to remain closer to home where they know they can receive appropriate follow up care after the surgery.
