As cosmetic medicine becomes more popular, financially accessible and widely accepted, Australians are more open about their cosmetic beauty secrets, according to the Cosmetic Physicians Society of Australasia.
Almost three quarters of respondents to CPSA’s 2012 annual survey, told up to 10 people about their non-surgical cosmetic treatment, compared to 61.5 per cent of respondents in the CPSA’s 2007 survey – an increase of almost 10 per cent.
“People are becoming more open about their cosmetic medical treatments as it has become less of a taboo subject. A broad cross-section of the people are now seeking cosmetic medical treatments and it’s not uncommon for patients to offer advice or share their experience with family and friends,” Dr Susan Austin, spokesperson for the CPSA says.
