At Ashbury Cosmetics in Brisbane and on the Gold Coast we have put together answers to the most popular questions patients ask us
Are there risks involved with cosmetic surgery?
With any surgery there are some risks involved. During your initial consultation with one of our skilled, friendly and expert team members we will discuss with you the possible risks and complications. This will allow you to be fully aware of what to expect from each treatment.
Will I need to be hospitalised?
This depends on the treatment or procedure you undergo. To find out more, check out the individual treatment pages.
Does every treatment have downtime?
No, treatments like the Dermapen do not have downtime but there may be some redness or soreness depending on the procedure or treatment.
What female breast procedures do you offer?
At Ashbury Cosmetics in Brisbane and on the Gold Coast we offer breast enlargements, nipple elevation and breast reductions.
Am I a suitable candidate for cosmetic surgery?
If you are healthy, near your ideal weight and have realistic expectations of what cosmetic surgery is able to achieve then you may be a suitable candidate, visit Ashbury Cosmetics at either our Brisbane or Gold Coast clinics.
At what age should you start anti-ageing injections?
Anti-ageing procedures are elective and therefore performed at the discretion of a patient. Although there are ethical boundaries around performing cosmetic procedures on minors, the majority of anti-aging procedures can be performed as soon as you become concerned about the effects of ageing.
Are there any long-term side effects of using injectables?
Some patients may have bruising, redness, swelling and asymmetry directly after anti-wrinkle injections have been administered. However, when using legal, quality injections there are few known long-term side effects. Although there are fears about shifting and moving of fillers, Ashbury clinic offers injectables that rarely move or become lumpy.
How many treatments would I need before I can see results?
The number of treatments depends completely on the severity of your concern as well as what products you and your doctor have decided to use.
How long do treatments last?
Most treatments last between 6-12 months. With regular anti-ageing injections at Ashbury, effects can be seen longer term.
Will anti-wrinkle injections leave me expressionless?
The work of most anti-wrinkle injections is to inhibit the movement of the muscles reducing the appearance of wrinkles. This may change how your face moves and the range of your facial expressions, when performed correctly you can still be able to show expression. Sometimes however, after anti-wrinkle injections your expressions may be a little milder
