We chat with plastic surgeons, cosmetic surgeons, patients, laser companies and clinicians about a variety of procedures, including tummy tucks, breast augmentations, rhinoplasty, facelifts, and a whole lot more. Our motto is #patientsafetyfirst
We research and check all the surgeons, doctors, practitioners, devices and treatments we put on the Hub. All plastic surgeons listed on the website are registered with the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) so we can ensure the surgeons we refer our readers to are appropriately trained and experienced. Our website has one of the largest plastic and cosmetic surgeons and cosmetic practitioner directories in Australia and consumers can find suitable practitioners by various search criteria including location or areas of expertise, or by searching under a specific surgery, device or treatment http://www.plasticsurgeryhub.com.au/non-surgical/. We aim to connect our readers to the most appropriate surgeon for their needs.
The Plastic Surgery Hub researches and provides objective but factual information on surgery, procedures, current trends and news http://www.plasticsurgeryhub.com.au/blogs/ relating to the cosmetic and plastic surgery and aesthetics industries in order to better inform our readers. We believe the more informed our readers are about the various surgeries and treatments on the market; the better able they are to make choices about what is right for them. We advise our readers that surgery is a serious matter that should not be entered into lightly, and believe all consumers considering surgery or cosmetic treatments should be aware of the risks and possible side effects as well as the benefits and outcomes.
The Hub is also a place for people to discuss their concerns, fears and experiences with plastic and cosmetic surgery. We believe that there is a significant lack of support for people undergoing surgeries and cosmetic treatments and The Hub provides a platform for those hard to ask questions and topics to be openly discussed, anonymously if desired. Our forum http://www.plasticsurgeryhub.com.au/question/ creates an environment where people feel supported and can share their stories with others going through the same experiences.
Deb Farnworth-Wood introducing ISSADA
Today Trish chats with Deb Farnworth-Wood about her new passion - ISSADA.
"The makeup has been around for a very long time, about 14 years or so - maybe 15 now. It's very much an organic cosmetic range of makeup with a high degree of minerals. It's always been mineral based, it's always been anti-talc. The range has beautiful, beautiful products. The key to that, is that each product contains only ingredients that are really good for the skin. So it's makeup but better, because it's got a skincare element as well. It was founded by a beautiful lady called Fiona Neal in 2006, and she has grown it into a great range.
Iin June this year, I bought the brand from Fiona, but she still works with the business as the general manager of the make-up company. In November, we're launching a ISSADA Clinical Formula Skincare - and that's actually what you can see the banner behind me, this is what this will look like."
Dr Fariba Behnia-Willison on Viveve
Just like the skin on our face. A vaginal tissue requires collagen for its elasticity and shape. Whether it be from the natural aging processes or physical stress from childbearing, the vaginal tissue can become stretched and weakened. The phenomenon of filling vaginal looseness is called vaginal laxity, which can also lead to other effects such as reduced sexual sensation as well as your during incontinence. Vaginal laxity is very common, but underreported and not well understood. In fact, millions of women experienced vaginal laxity are reported as the most noticeable physical change after vaginal delivery, which no one tells you about. However, 40 to 50% of women globally experienced prolapse and incontinence. Now that I have said the scene for you, the Viveve is a radio frequency device that delivers uniform water metric heating into the deeper layers of the vaginal tissue.
Dr Zacharia on Neograft Hair Transplantation System
Well, I think you need to understand what type of hair transplants are available. And there's two types: there's FUT, which is follicular unit transplantation. And FUE which is follicular unit extraction, the if you see is one where they took the strip from behind the ear of the ear from one side of the ear to the other. And they take a strip of hair and then divide all the hair follicles so that they can be implanted. The FUE is a specialized technique where you take individual hair follicles so there's no strip, you don't have to make big cuts. And neograft is a specialized machine and technique where it's a much faster, less complicated system to actually take those hair follicles.
