Abstract

The exact number of Australians undergoing cosmetic procedures is unknown, but there is a consensus that demand is on the rise. This is an international phenomenon and there are various factors, social and personal, that may be contributors to someone choosing to undergo a cosmetic procedure. Along with the demand, there has been an increase in attention from researchers and clinicians in the benefits and risks of cosmetic surgery, particularly for some population groups.
