Which country would you expect has the most cosmetic surgery? America perhaps? Well the answer is Australia. We have overtaken The States, with more than half a million procedures a year. That’s 30,000 liposuctions annually and over 20,000 breast augmentations, according to figures from the Australian College of Cosmetic Surgery (ACCS). From a little bit of Botox, to full on surgery, there are more Australians paying out for procedures than ever before. 

What kind of cosmetic procedures are most common? 

On the list of non-invasive procedures, Botox and Dermal Fillers are sitting in the top spots. In terms of cost, they are relatively inexpensive and results are quick. A Botox treatment for a forehead usually involves a series of small injections, costing between $300-$700. Unlike Botox, Derma Fillers are used to plump up wrinkled areas or other parts that need augmentation, like lips and cheeks. The most common major cosmetic surgery is breast augmentation, followed by rhinoplasty and tummy tucks. 

Talking about cosmetic surgery

Having cosmetic procedures used to be confined to the very wealthy, but attitudes have changed. Celebrities are talking about their own bodies and how they have had treatment, or improved areas that they are not happy with. Katy Perry has talked openly about using fillers under her eyes, Kyle Jenner is often on social media flaunting her pout and Australian beauty Nicole Kidman has discussed her use of Botox in the news. Although it is expensive, cosmetic procedures have become accessible to the masses, and instead of saving up for a weekend break, we are choosing to get rid of wrinkles instead. 

A question of self-esteem

There is no taboo anymore in Australia about cosmetic surgery - it has become a realistic solution for improving the way that you look, not just for celebrities, but for everyone. For many people the results aren’t just physical, they also boost mental wellbeing and self-esteem. It has become socially acceptable to undergo procedures with the ultimate goal of improving the way you look and self confidence. Even better when you can fit a session of Botox into your lunch break - it is convenient, and you can make minor changes and still look like yourself. 

Cosmetic procedures are available to everyone, it is no longer a secret subject and Australians are embracing this. When undertaken by a medically qualified professional, the results can be excellent and have a positive effect on the way that you look and feel.
