15 Aug Why Australians are Spending More on Cosmetic Surgery than Americans
A recent article by Whimm Body+Soul highlighted that Australians fork out around $1 billion for cosmetic surgery procedures every year, most of which is spent on anti-wrinkle injections.
Both men and women are now adding cosmetic procedures to their usual beauty and skincare regimes for a number of different reasons, one being that many Australians are spending more years in the workforce and need to look and feel great for longer.
Dr Molton, president of the Cosmetic Physicians College of Australasia, mentioned that advancements in cosmetic medicine and technology have made it possible for patients to enhance their best features without the need to take time off work.
A large percentage of surgeons are undergoing specialised training to be able to provide their patients with a more diverse range of treatment options as well as effective results.
“We know a lot more about the technologies and how to use them safely and efficiently. Having a tool is of no use unless you know precisely how to apply the medical understanding of tissue interactions with these devices. And, of course, the sharing of success stories and results via social media channels and word of mouth has also had a profound impact on the rise in popularity [of these procedures].”
