Posted by esteemadmin on Aug 26, 2015

We are now living in a time where body image is very important, with a number of people doing whatever it takes to have that supposed ideal look and figure. It is no surprise that many swarm to the nearest fitness gyms and aesthetic clinics. To prove this, there is a reported $1 billion  worth of cosmetic procedures performed in Australia alone. Among the different types of cosmetic surgeries available to the public globally, liposuction came in at number two with 1,372,901 procedures performed in 2014. It preceded double eyelid surgeries with 1,427,451 procedures, and is then followed by breast augmentation, fat grafting and rhinoplasty respectively. Compared with the other countries, Australia was number 23 on the list of the top 25 countries with the most number of cosmetic procedures. Locally, the popular surgeries were breast augmentation, double eyelid surgery, lipoplasty, rhinoplasty, and liposuction as the most requested. Such amazing numbers indicate the need for the patients who have undergone surgeries, like liposuction, to know exactly how to take care of themselves after the procedure. Post-surgery care largely dictates the success or failure of the procedure. Below are some really vital tips that patients have to remember to prevent unwanted complications from their personal transformations. Post-op Care How to Get Home After any procedure, the body tends to be weak and will not be able to perform as normally as it did before the operation.

Will I be able to breast​-feed after a boob job

Posted by esteemadmin on Aug 25, 2015

EXTRACT One of the most commonly asked questions when it comes to breast augmentation centres around how breast -feeding abilities will be affected once the procedure is complete. ARTICLE CONTENT Did you know that over 307,000 Australian women gave birth to a whopping 312,000 babies during 2012? Figures from the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare show that the Aussie birthrate has risen 3.4 per cent from 2011, and an enormous 21.5 per cent since 2003. That’s a lot of hungry mouths to feed, and with more Australian babies being born than ever, expectant mothers may have quite a few queries on their mind. Perhaps one of the most common questions of all women that have even fleetingly thought about undergoing breast augmentation is whether or not it will remain safe to breast -feed their child after the operation is complete. It’s a fair enquiry, and one worth answering in fine detail. Let’s take a look at how having a boob job will affect your ability to safely lactate. How will a breast enlargement affect my ability to breast -feed? In the vast majority of cases, women who have breast implants will be able to fully breast -feed without any difficulties or hindrances whatsoever. However, there are two other outcomes that may apply to you once the procedure has been performed, depending on precisely what work was done. Some women may require the use of galactagogues, which are a distinct collection of foods and other substances that can aid the production of breast  milk. According to the Australian Breastfeeding Association (ABA), at least 95 per cent of new mums...

A recent poll conducted by RealSelf.com reported that 68% of parents in United States would allow their children to have cosmetic surgery if it would help them from being bullied at school. There are various reasons why parents opt for otoplasty surgery for their kids. Some parents do this to protect their children being teased and bullied at school and suffer self-image issues associated with having misshaped or protruding ears. For others, a defect in ear structure is the main reason in getting the procedure. If you are also a parent and searching for a way to know more about this procedure, then these frequently asked questions for ears pinned back surgery is right for you. 1. What is otoplasty? Otoplasty is the corrective surgery to correct and reshape abnormal ear structure. 2. What causes the ears to be prominent? Ear prominence, as frustrating as they can be, is a result of the underdeveloped antihelical fold which is actually the structure responsible for keeping the ear close to the head. (See the photo of different ear types and shapes below). 3. What is the ideal age of the child to undergo otoplasty? When we talk of otoplasty for kids, the standard candidates for this procedure are children between 5 and 14 years of age.

A lot of Australians are getting cosmetic surgeries such as Botox in order to make themselves appear younger. It was a way for them to get an edge over younger co-workers.

That is why many are defying age in order to be at par when it comes to landing good positions, since a lot of employers today are looking for fresh or youthful. However, body experts are expressing concerns over the practice which they see is giving individuals an impression that good looks and youth is necessary to be regarded as successful. This problem was particularly hard for women. Certain indicators of aging, such as crow’s feet or white hair may create more character and appeal to a man, but it does not necessarily do the same thing for women. Looking old and gray for your age can make others wonder if you are still capable of the being put in positions with high pressure.

Posted by esteemcosmetic on Apr 24, 2013

Studies have proven that the results of face lift surgery can last for almost a decade. This can be attributed to the improvements in techniques and technology to achieve the best results. However, according to an article in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, secondary face lifts require extreme precision.

Just like other cosmetic surgeries, a face lift is a complex procedure requiring extensive medical knowledge, good foresight, an eye for detail and creative skill. But when it comes to secondary facelifts, the level of complexity is said to be much greater. The article from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) explains about the demands specific to the procedure both technical and experiential in nature. According to Dr. McNemar, “The challenge with secondary facelift procedure is working with the results of a previous surgery. Depending on the techniques used by the previous surgeon, your approach will vary.” Factors that affect the complexity of secondary facelift procedure include the inherent sophistication of the procedure and the changes that occur to the facial anatomy of the patient brought about by the primary procedure. With that concern, it is important that the patient choose a good surgeon. He should know how to consider the extent of superficial and underlying scar tissue. In some cases facelift can result in...
