Plastic Surgeon in Gold Coast Australia Discusses Recent ISAPS Statistics

Gold Coast Plastic Surgeon Discusses Breast Augmentation Stats from ISAPS

The latest study from the International Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS) reports that Australia ranks 22nd in the world in the total number of cosmetic enhancement procedures performed, with 130,200 combined surgical and non-surgical treatments. The top three procedures in Australia according to the ISAPS statistics were eyelid surgery, rhinoplasty, and breast augmentation. Dr. Craig Layt, a plastic surgeon in Gold Coast, says at his practice he has seen similar popularity of those procedures, along with a growing popularity in breast surgery enhancements.

Gold Coast plastic surgeon Dr. Craig Layt says breast-related surgeries are the most popular form of cosmetic enhancement at his practice, including breast augmentation, breast lift, and breast reduction. According to the most recent survey by the International Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS), there were 7,196 breast augmentation procedures performed in Australia, 11% of the total 62,300 plastic surgery procedures. Ranking 22nd in the world for total plastic surgery treatments, Dr. Layt says cosmetic enhancements, specifically breast augmentation in Gold Coast, are becoming increasingly popular in Australia as more and more patients are aware of the benefits.

At his practice, Dr. Layt says many patients have begun electing breast augmentation as a way to enhance their appearance and renew their self-confidence. With recent advancements in breast implant technology and incision techniques, Dr. Layt says plastic surgeons are now able to achieve smaller scars and more natural results than ever before. Through the latest developments in technology, he also adds that patients can achieve the highest quality results and a quicker recovery period.

Regardless of whether patients are seeking breast augmentation or another procedure such as liposuction in Gold Coast, Dr. Layt says extensively researching all plastic surgery options is extremely important to the process of cosmetically enhancing one’s body. He says that patients should be sure to consult with a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon who holds current membership in reputable and professional aesthetic surgery societies.
