From skin care that works, to cosmetic surgery and private health insurance, renowned Australian Cosmetic Surgeon, Dr Daniel Lanzer shares his top tips for looking your best at any age.
1) Start with Great Skin Products
While facial surgery can improve your facial structure; skin care will look after your daily routine. Every woman needs to have a basic skin care regimen including a vitamin A, a gentle cleanser and a moisturising to protect your face against harmful sun damage which is one of the no 1 reasons of ageing.
2) If you are in doubt, ask around
If you not quite ready for cosmetic surgery, there is a range of non-surgical treatments that can bring out your inner glow. One example is medical microdermabrasion, fruit acid peels, Isolaz are all effective in cleaning and reducing pores. The second level of rejuvenation to tighten the skin is the Viva fractionated erbium laser. Another rejuvenation treatment is called Energet , which aims at injecting a filler under the skin and tightening the skin without actually injection.
3) Think Natural Results
The media is bombarded by images of people who have cosmetic surgery which is overdone, but Dr Lanzer believes natural looking results are possible with cosmetic liposuction aiming to shed those extra kilos around your waist, things, arms etc. Dr Lanzer achieves an ideal look by assessing each body type and getting natural results.
4) Aim for the tummy
The modern tummy tuck is great as it includes all the abdominal problem areas in one go. Repairing tightening of the tummy muscles (Stomach), skin and stretchmark and has been known to remove caesarean scars and lines.
5) Ensure you do your homework
Search for surgeon who is a fully qualified cosmetic surgeon and ask this surgeon any questions or concerns prior to your treatment that you may have.
6) Consider applying for Private Health cover
Private health insurance will often cover all the hospital costs including the bed feeds and theatre fees for the following procedures, abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), breast reduction, arm and thigh lift and some upper eyelid reduction surgery. Dr Lanzer always advises patients to check with your own provider your level of cover to ascertain if your procedure is included in your policy prior to procedures to assist you in the costs of treatments.
