With the recent coverage of ABC’s Four Corners: ‘Cosmetic Cowboys' and the noted rapid rise in patients in Australia and New Zealand seeking cosmetic surgery in the past decade, we continue to stress the importance of knowing your surgeon’s training, registration, and experience.

Too often do we hear of botched surgeries where unsuspecting patients have gone to doctors who did not have the necessary training, skills or accreditation to perform surgery.

Your safety is important to us. Please take the time to do your research. If you've decided to have plastic surgery, it's important that you know exactly what your surgery entails and the underlying risks.

The ASAPS have created this helpful Cosmetic Surgery Guide on Patient Safety, that will arm you with the 7 important questions you must ask your surgeon before having surgery.

Don't choose a cosmetic cowboy for your surgery! 🤠

Happy Halloween Eve 🎃

There was lots of media this week on what happens when people choose non-surgeons for their cosmetic surgery.. and it wasn't pretty! Check out the Four Corners and SMH stories to see it for yourself… just search the net for ‘cosmetic cowboys’ and lots of relevant links pop up!

So do your homework and know the difference between those who are registered surgeons, and those who are not!

HOW TO AVOID A COWBOY

Questions to ask any doctor you are considering, and our answers are below:

1 - Are you a genuine Specialist Surgeon? Under the law, only those doctors who have invested many years into extra training can call themselves a Specialist Surgeon. They are those with the initials FRACS after their name. It stands for "Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons". Both Dr Moncrieff and Associate Professor French are FRACS Specialist Surgeons. Concerningly, the government has failed to stop anyone with a basic medical degree, even without any dedicated surgical training, from calling themself a 'cosmetic surgeon'. So be very wary of anyone using this made-up title.

2 - What surgery do you do? Focus matters! That's why both Dr Moncrieff and Dr French only offer breast and body surgery for women. So lots and lots of breast reductions, lifts, augmentations and revisions. Plus tummy tuck and body lifts.

3 - Can I see lots of your results? We offer hundreds of before and after images of our real patients online and even more in the clinic. Our commitment is that every single woman you see across our marketing is a real patient - no teenage models from purchased stock images here!

4 - What are the risks? Real surgeons are open and honest about risks. Not only during the consultation, but in materials for you to take home and to help you minimise risks before and after surgery. Surgery isn't a 'beauty treatment' and risks need to be taken seriously.

COVID-19 has certainly a big impact on plastic surgery. However, we are now entering an era of post-COVID “Zoom Body Image Conscious Phenomenon”.

Over the last three weeks, I have had more than 10 people enquiring about neck liposuction as they are conscious about their neck and double chin area. They all have one thing in common: “I did not like the way I looked in a Zoom meeting. I was shocked how my neck looked. I desperately need to do something about it.” Furthermore, they all wish to have their surgery ASAP as they are working from home and they want to utilise the time for recovery.

It is a fact that social media pressures are a big factor on body image and body dissatisfaction. The use of social media was previously shown to correlate with body dissatisfaction as social media can have a massive role in setting out the standards that influence the perception of beauty ideals. It is estimated that 74% of online adults are using social networking sites and this is predicted to continue to increase.

After breast feeding or losing significant weight, a woman can lose the volume to her breasts which would result in the breast ‘sagging’ and causing them to lose their shape and position on the chest.

One of the most rewarding surgery for both the surgeon and the patient is breast lift surgery, or mastopexy, where the breast position is restored back on to the chest wall with reshaping of the breast shape to a more youthful appearance.

It involves removing the ptotic skin and re-positioning the ni**le back to a more central position. This excision of the inferior ptotic skin results in some minor scarring on the inferior part of the breast, under the ni**les. This results in an anchor shaped scarring pattern, so this is sometimes referred to as the ‘anchor lift’.

Breast lift surgery restores position and shape of the breasts, and this surgery can be combined with adjuvant surgery to augment the volume of the breast. This can be achieved with an addition of breast implants, also known as Augmentation Mastopexy, or with fat grafting to the lifted breasts.
