Most popular cosmetic surgeries currently in Australia.

Cosmetic surgery in Australia has grown so rapidly with over $1 billion being spent on these procedures just last year alone. With 500,000 different cosmetic treatments and surgeries taking place, we are now having the most cosmetic surgery operations per capita. It is hard to keep in the know with all of the advances and various options available, so we have created a list of the most popular surgeries in Australia at this moment.


A facelift is the best way for people to combat the signs of age and stress. As you age, your skin loses its elasticity and gravity takes its toll, forming wrinkles that may make you look older than what you are. A facelift can help you restore a more youthful and radiant look to your face. At ICCM we offer two different types of facelift procedures; the Modern Facelift and the Thread Lift.

What is Modern Facelift?

The Minimal Access Cranial Suspension lift also known as a MACS lift is far less invasive than a traditional facelift procedure. It involves lifting and repositioning facial tissues such as skin, fat and supporting tissue. A MACS lift does not require that the doctor expose facial nerves and surgery time takes on average only 2 hours to complete.

Both men and women can undergo a MACS lift, and it is suitable for those who want:

  • Minimal scarring
  • Quick recovery
  • Long-term lifting effects
  • Reduced signs of aging.

Our doctors have vast experience in this procedure which allows them to deliver natural results that are virtually undetectable as cosmetic surgery.

What is a Thread Lift?

A thread lift is even less invasive and involves the insertion of threads deep under the skin using fine needles. It can be performed in under 60 minutes and gently lifts your sagging skin and returns your original contours. The site of these threads causes your body to create its own natural healing collagen and thus revitalise your skin. There are no incisions and the results usually last about 3 years. Thereafter you can simply come in to have them replaced.

Eyelid surgery

Also known as blepharoplasty, eyelid surgery involves the removal of excess fat, skin and muscle from the upper and lower eyelids to correct any drooping of the lids and under-eye bags or puffiness. Eyelid creases will also be improved, and it will take between 1 – 2 hours to complete. Many results we see look refreshed and more alert after their eyes have had the chance to heal. ICCM can advise you on how best to maintain your refreshed look.

Breast augmentation

An augmentation offers women the chance to adjust the shape and size of their breasts, whether it be to make them larger, adjust the appearance or increase volume after breastfeeding. It can also correct concerns such as asymmetry and tubular breasts. Each patient’s body is different, so the procedure will be tailored to fit your frame and body type to give the most natural appearance. A breast augmentation can also be performed in conjunction with a breast lift to give you the best possible appearance suitable for your body.


Liposuction is most commonly performed on the abdomen area where subcutaneous fat is located just beneath the skin. The unwanted fat is broken up and removed to give a slimmer appearance.

At ICCM we offer liposculpture which offers the same treatment of removing unwanted fat deposits from areas that are resistant to diet and exercise. Liposculpture can be used to contour the following areas:

  • Cheeks, under chin and neck
  • Abdomen and love handles
  • Arms
  • Thighs, knees and ankles
  • Chest and upper back

Liposculpture is minimally invasive and you should be able to see results within 48 hours. It is a minimally invasive treatment that does not need a general anaesthetic, offering less downtime and improved appearance.

If you are considering a cosmetic treatment, then book a consultation with one of our seasoned experts who will be able to discuss and create a custom plan to help you attain your cosmetic goals.
