A cosmetic holiday is a dangerous idea
In a recent news story a night club in Mackay was said to be holding a competition for their consumers to win a holiday overseas to receive cosmetic surgery
Macquarie Cosmetic Medicine in Sydney is passionate about cosmetic surgery for the right reasons. We believe that the decision to receive cosmetic surgery should not be taken lightly, but with sincere thought and planning. We also believe that your choice to receive cosmetic surgery should be decided in cooperation with a medical doctor and also performed by a certified Australian doctor that is proficient in their practices and dedicated to performing at Australian Standards.
Venturing overseas for cosmetic surgery can be dangerous
If you venture across the ocean to receive cosmetic surgery from Thailand or Malaysia you may come back with more than you bargained for. People from all over Australia are venturing overseas to Asian continents in order to receive their cosmetic surgery desires. While some of these procedures are performed well, for every one that is completed without complications there are many more that are botched.
Communication is a significant problem overseas
Many people think that every breast augmentation surgery or every liposuction procedure is the same. However when our doctors at Macquarie Cosmetic Medicine evaluate you for our procedure we take into consideration the entire scope of your medical history and current health. This information is required to make sure that you are completely safe throughout the procedure and without it there is risk of complications, undesirable results and, even in some cases, death. Many people forget the language barrier when they’re travelling overseas and when your doctor or surgeon does not speak fluent English you will not be able to communicate your past medical history as aptly as you would in Australia, this puts you in grave danger.
Their standards of surgery are not the same as in Australia
When you travel to lesser developed countries you will be sacrificing quality when it comes to plastic surgery. When it comes to such delicate surgeries such as blepharoplasty or breast lift surgery you should weigh up whether a cheaper visit to another country is worth risking your health and safety. There have been many surgeries that have been botched due to neglect or lack of knowledge overseas, resulting in unhappy patients returning with injuries, scars and worse.
Macquarie Cosmetic Medicine is dedicated to your health, safety, well-being and appearance
Although we perform cosmetic surgeries our care runs much deeper than just the aesthetic. From your initial consultation to your end results you will be cared for by our nurses and doctors. We will help guide you through your procedure and ensure that you are happy with your results in the end.
