The plastic surgery industry is a huge business and it’s not just the elite who are benefiting from the industry.
Many other people are paying for the surgery, too.
They are paying to have their teeth whitened, their nails plucked, their lips widened and their skin peeled.
This is a significant chunk of the $US150 billion ($215 billion) a year that is being spent in Australia.
It’s not uncommon for someone to go for plastic surgery for the first time.
We pay for it, we use it and we pay the bills, said Dr Robert Cairns, president of the Plastic Surgeons Association of Australia.
“If we’re not paying the bills we’re doing something wrong and we have a moral obligation to do something about it.”
What is it about the public’s attitudes towards plastic surgery?
Dr Cairnes says the public attitude towards plastic surgeries is changing.
People have come to see them as a way to enhance their physical appearance, rather than as a cosmetic procedure.
Dr Cairs says a lot of the money that’s being spent on plastic surgery is going towards people who have been left out of the market, because the market for cosmetic surgery is not in its peak. “
People have become aware of it and they’re starting to understand that they don’t have to buy a plastic surgeon’s kit if they want to have this surgery.”
Dr Cairs says a lot of the money that’s being spent on plastic surgery is going towards people who have been left out of the market, because the market for cosmetic surgery is not in its peak.
“That’s the big reason that the number of plastic surgeons has gone down.”
A plastic surgeon may have a lot to offer, but they may not be paid the same as a surgeon in other countries.
There is a perception that a plastic surgery kit is not worth much more than a wig, lip balm or make-up.
“What you’re seeing is that the price of the kit is going down as the number grows,” he said.
Why are the cost of plastic surgery so high?
Plastic surgery costs an average of $US200,000 ($295,000) in Australia, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
The cost of the most common procedures is between $US100,000 and $US140,000.
Some of the cost goes towards the plastic surgery itself, such as the cost for a crown, eyelashes and eyebrows.
Dr Cains said the majority of the plastic surgeons who were paid on average $US800,000 or more to do plastic surgery were men.
“The majority of our clients come from families with incomes under $200,00 a year,” he explained.
“They’re not the people that are in the upper echelons of the industry.”
The top surgeons earn $US5 million to $6 million ($US8,000 to $9,000), with the top 20 per cent earning $US12 million or more.
What are the benefits of having a plastic surgeons kit?
Dr Craig Pappas, a plastic plastic surgeon from Western Sydney, said there were many benefits to having a kit.
“We can do a lot more than just fill the mouth, but we can also remove excess skin and you get rid of excess fat and excess scars,” he told the ABC.
“You can also get a bit of that extra skin to be able to remove excess lip tissue, for example.”
Dr Pappos said having a good-fitting, comfortable and comfortable plastic surgery treatment kit can be a very helpful investment.
“When you’re in a position to afford it, it gives you a confidence level that the procedure has gone well and the plastic surgeon is going to be very responsive to your concerns,” he added.
What does a plastic-surgery kit cost?
The average price of a plastic procedure kit in Australia is between AU$200,500 ($280,000).
Dr Casts said that a few plastic surgery companies were starting to offer kits at less than the average price, but there was a lot going on in the industry at the moment.
“Some companies, such in Germany, are selling their kits at about AU$600,000, but a few others are going for around $US900,000,” he noted.
“So you can get a good deal if you’re willing to put up with some disappointment.”
What are some of the complications of plastic surgeries?
Dr Paddington said some complications are more likely in the first or second stage of a procedure, but it can still happen.
“In my experience, the biggest complication in the process is that some patients may feel pain in their lower limbs or lower legs, or that they may have trouble getting into the plastic surgical chair,” he reported.
“Sometimes the procedure is not performed correctly, sometimes the surgeon isn’t aware of the procedure, or there’s some kind of complication.” “
What do the patients think about the costs?”
