At the hub we’ve compiled lots of information describing the various cosmetic and plastic surgery procedures and the risks that can be involved. This information is designed to help you with your decision making.
We believe that surgery is a serious matter that shouldn’t be entered into lightly. We definitely do not think that a decision to have surgery should be influenced by a cheap procedure or the lure of an overseas holiday. It simply makes no sense to increase your risks.
Now, you might be very surprised to know that in Australia any doctor is allowed to perform plastic surgery… such as a breast augment, or a facelift… I don’t know about you, but for me this would be totally unacceptable.
If I’m going to have a procedure as prominent as a facelift or a boob job, then I want to make sure that the doctor is a qualified surgeon, with specialised training in plastic surgery. Nothing less would do.
The single most important advice that I can give you is to make sure that your doctor is a trained surgeon.
If you decide to proceed and go ahead with the surgery we’d love to hear about your experience, and I’m sure many other readers that are contemplating similar surgery and are having similar concerns and experiences would love to hear about it too.
