Is a hair transplant permanent?

The hairs used are ideally permanent although this should be evaluated on a case-by-case basis as there are considerations such as the lifespan of the original donors hair (if it’s not your own) and how accepting your body is of the treatment.

Saline or Silicone gel breast implants?

Both saline and silicone gel breast implants are safe. Most people nowadays prefer silicone gel implants as they do not rupture like saline implants. This is because a tear will not cause the implant to burst, unlike saline implants which contain seawater. For a better recommendation in regards to the best type of implants for you please Book an appointment.

Should I get a laser treatment or a face lift?

Face lifts are generally performed on patients who are over fifty, while individuals as young as twenty can opt for laser treatment for fine lines and wrinkles. Lasers are a great preventive and reactive measure to treat pigmentation, wrinkles and the first signs of aging. While face lifts are perfect for individuals who already have skin that has sagged due to age.

Both procedures are effective, although depending on the problems you are trying to address one may be better for you. To determine this it is required that you visit Norwood Day Surgery in Adelaide.
