Face

Why Have Facial Plastic Surgery?

Facial plastic surgery procedures have one goal: to help you present to the world a look that matches who you are inside. You’re a confident, beautiful person-so let’s present that face to the world. Whether it’s a facelift that helps your outer appearance match the age you feel or a neck lift that allows you to hold your head high, facial plastic surgery might be the answer for you.

Turning Back the Clock

People all over the country want to look younger to match how they feel. There are a variety of plastic surgery procedures for the face that you can select to shed a few years-some procedures even target specific trouble spots, like drooping eyebrows or sagging skin on the neck.

Contouring the Face

Facial plastic surgery isn’t just for looking younger. It also allows you to contour your face. Want sharper cheekbones, a slimmer nose, or even differently shaped ears? Perhaps the shape of your chin is not exactly how you want it to be? Whatever feature of your face you want fine-tuned, Gold Coast plastic surgeon Dr Scamp will be able to help you by selecting the most appropriate procedure for your specific situation.

Selecting a Surgeon

It is of paramount importance that you select a skilled, knowledgeable surgeon for a facial plastic surgery procedure. After all, your face is the first thing people see!

Breast Surgery

No two women have the exact shape, and the goal of plastic surgery for the breasts is to give you the silhouette that best suits your frame and makes you happy with your outer appearance.

Whether you want a breast augmentation to give you more volume and help your clothes fit better, a breast reduction to reduce back pain, or a breast lift to return your chest to youthful perkiness, an expert plastic surgeon can help you achieve your goals.

Pregnancy/Weight Loss and Breast Surgery

One of the most common reasons women have for pursuing plastic surgery of the breasts is that their body has changed after pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. It’s not unusual to lose volume and have breasts that sag and lie flatly against the chest after having kids. If this is your situation, a breast augmentation can give you back the volume you have lost. You can also pair an augmentation with a breast lift, if your breasts have moved lower down your chest than you would like.

Another common reason for pursuing breast surgery is dramatic weight loss. After shedding the pounds, some women find that their breasts haven’t decreased in size along with the rest of their body, and a breast reduction is desired. For other women, the breasts become less perky or full after weight loss.

Breast Reconstruction

Women who have undergone a mastectomy as part of breast cancer treatment may want to pursue breast reconstruction in order to return to their pre-surgical silhouette. Breast reconstruction involves rebuilding the breast (and optionally recreating the nipple and areola).

Skin Procedures

As we age, our skin begins to show parts of our lifestyle that we might not want it to! Age spots from sun exposure might begin to appear. Wrinkles and expression lines show up on our brow, around the eyes, and around the nose and lips. If you haven’t always kept yourself properly hydrated, the plump skin you were used to can start to sag and leave you looking older and more tired than you really feel.

The Convenience of Non-Surgical Procedures

Anti-wrinkle injections, dermal fillers, and laser treatments were all popular nonsurgical procedures, and their convenience is probably one of the biggest contributing factors to this fact. Most of these procedures take under an hour, require little to no recovery afterwards, and have no majorly noticeable healing processes (so there’s no hiding out at home for a few weeks until the stitches come out).

Nonsurgical facial procedures are also less expensive than their surgical counterparts, and offer less dramatic results. They are an excellent option for patients who want to treat their wrinkles or plump up areas of their face without the time and monetary commitments to a facelift or other surgery.

The Benefits

Nonsurgical skin care procedures will give you glowing, youthful looking skin using the least-invasive methods possible.

For Men

More and more men are realising the benefits of looking good and feeling good about themselves, even when diet and exercise won’t do the trick.

Why Are More Men Getting Plastic Surgery?

Our society values a youthful appearance and high fitness level in everyone, no matter their gender or age. We are also busier than we’ve ever been, leaving us stressed out. Permanently furrowed brows and love handles from stress-related eating on the go are just a few results of our lifestyle.

As a result, more and more men are turning to plastic surgery to help them look as active and young as they feel. In this competitive job market, some men are even pursuing plastic surgery as a way to compete with other potential employees who may look more energetic.
