The eyes are the most important aesthetic component of the face - for this reason eyelid procedures are among the most efficient ways to obtain significant aesthetic improvement to the face with relatively light surgery.
FACE AND NECK LIFT
A face and neck lift is the most efficient method for reversing the effects of gravity and ageing in the mid and lower portions of the face. This procedure will raise the soft tissues in the cheek and mid-face, reduce jowls and provide a cleaner and more defined jawline.
The endoscopic brow lift is used for rejuvenation of the forehead and areas adjacent to the eyes, reversing the effects of sagging, asymmetry and heavy creasing. It provides a graded and precisely adjusted lift, yet is gentle to the forehead and leaves only minor scarring that is hidden behind the hairline. As the endoscopic brow lift has a pronounced rejuvenating effect to the forehead and eyelids, the procedure is often used to complement facelift surgeries in order to get a balanced result across the full face.
TREATMENT FOR FACIAL AND EYELID HOLLOWNESS
Fat transfer, or surgical grafting, is used alongside the repositioning of soft tissues to revolumise hollowed areas and restore structural integrity to the face. Using one’s own fat cells, this technique has a wide application and may be effectively combined with other procedures, such as face lift and eyelid surgery. It is used effectively to counteract gravity by offering a light lift, and deliver smooth and youthful contours
Facial implants add or restore contours to the solid structure of face - the cranio-facial architecture which includes the chin, jaw and cheekbones. Implants are equally suited for use in the correction of facial asymmetries as well as for cosmetic enhancement. Implants of firm medical-grade silicone improve at a deeper level, they are safe, give permanent, balanced results, and look and feel natural
FACIAL SCAR REVISION
The causes of scars include traumatic injury, infection, burn and surgery. Some scars are unattractive simply due to location, while others may affect facial expressions. Scars are permanent once formed, but surgically it is possible to alter scar lines and adjust the surrounding tissue to make the scar less visible. Many scars that appear large and unattractive at first may become less obvious with time. Types of scars include: Hypertrophic scars, keloid scars, burn scars and normal scars. There are a variety of treatments including steroids, compression, surgical excision, fat grafting, or combined therapies which may be used depending on the nature of the scar.
FACIAL INJURIES AND LACERATIONS
Facial trauma reconstruction is the rectification of facial lacerations such as those commonly inflicted during motor vehicle accidents, incidents of violence, or from animal attacks. Appropriate treatment at the time of injury is the most effective way of preventing post-traumatic facial deformities. Although it may not be possible to completely restore pre-injury appearance, significant improvements can often be made in one or a series of reconstructive surgeries.
FACIAL SKIN CANCERS - SKIN MALIGNANCY SURGERY
Basal cell carcinoma is the most common malignant or neoplastic tumour affecting the skin of the face, nose, eyelids and surrounding areas. It is typically a result of sun exposure, particularly in fair-skinned individuals or people who spend extended periods outdoors. Other skin cancers include squamous cell carcinoma and malignant melanoma. Although most skin cancers can be removed surgically, treatment will depend on the type of cancer, its stage of growth and its location.
FACIAL PALSY- FACIAL NERVE REPAIR
The facial nerve is responsible for the movement and control of muscle function in the face. Injury or dysfunction of the facial nerve may result in facial palsy. The facial paralysis, usually occurring on just one side of the face, can cause numerous problems of the eye, skin and muscles. The primary therapeutic aim is always the restoration of nerve function. If for some reason this is not possible, healthy nerves and muscles can be transferred to the face, a procedure known as ‘facial reanimation’. A number of procedures targeting specific issues such as tightening of the oral commissure (mouth), brow lifts and eyelid surgeries offer temporary to long-lasting static improvement, either as stand-alone procedures or in combination.
REDUCED EYELID FUNCTIONALITY- OCULOPLASTIC SURGERY
Reduced eyelid functionality may have many causes, including traumatic lacerations, ptosis, eyelid cancer, facial palsy or previous surgery. The eyelids are delicate and complex structures that provide coverage and protection to the eye. They are also among the most important aesthetic components of the face, making restoration of appearance especially important. Eyelids can be reconstructed with a wide variety of techniques; many functional eyelid problems may only require a minor adjustment, but occasionally complex multilayered reconstructions are required.
There are several ways of medically treating and improving skin health for both men and women. The first step is a thorough examination, highlighting areas of premature ageing, skin damage and pigmentation as well as noting problems such as acne, acne scarring, vascular lesions, rosacea or other irregularities. The second step is determining a combination of therapies for a personalised programme of skin restoration. The best results are always obtained by combining treatments that stimulate and optimise the skin on both a structural and cellular level. Many skin conditions are associated with specific events such as hormonal changes, pregnancies, etc. and treatments will be customised accordingly. We provide treatments such as Skin Peel, Dermabrasion, Laser Treatment and Injectables to treat a variety of skin conditions.
If you've got excess skin in your abdomen which doesn't respond to diet or exercise, then you should opt for surgery that flattens the abdomen by removing extra fat and skin, and tightening muscles in your abdominal wall. Women who had many pregnancies can undergo this procedure for tightening their abdominal muscles and reducing skin. It is also an option for men or women who were once obese and still have excess fat deposits or loose skin around the belly.
- Complete Abdominoplasty: The surgeon will cut your abdomen from hipbone to hipbone and then contour the skin, tissue, and muscle as needed. The surgery will involve moving your belly button, and you may need drainage tubes under your skin for a few days.
- Partial or Mini Abdominoplasty: Mini-abdominoplasties are often done on people whose fat deposits are located below the navel. During this procedure, the surgeon most likely will not move your belly button, and the procedure may only take up to two hours, depending on your case.
BREAST REDUCTION SURGERY
Breast reduction is a cosmetic surgery procedurein which the size and weight of large, heavy breasts is reduced to create a breast contourproperly proportioned to a patient’s body.This is done by removing excess breast tissue, fat, and sagging, stretched skin, a cosmetic surgeon can resize and improve breast symmetry. Large breasts can cause health problems and may experience physical pain and discomfort. The weight of excess breast tissue can impair your ability to lead an active life. Their is a frequent discomfort and self-consciousness associated with having large breasts.
- Liposuction for Breast Reduction: Breast reduction can be performed using liposuction. The advantages of liposuction for breast reduction are a shorter, less invasive procedure. The procedure is done for those who need a slight reduction in breast size and have good skin elasticity.
- Vertical Breast Reduction: Patients who require a moderate reduction in breast size and have more noticeable sagging are suitable for a vertical breast reduction. This involves two incision sites: one is around the edge of the areola, and a second incision running vertically from the bottom of the areola to the inflammatory fold beneath the breast. This incision pattern allows a cosmetic surgeon to remove excess fat, skin and breast tissue, reshape the new smaller breast internally, and lift the breast into a more youthful position.
- Inverted-T Breast Reduction: The inverted-T breast reduction involves 3 incisions: one around the edge of the areola, one vertically from the areola to the breast crease, and one made along the crease beneath the breast. This procedures is done for the maximum tissue removal and reshaping to a more significant breast size reduction.
Gynaecomastia is the enlargement of male breast tissue. It’s a common, benign (not cancer) condition that mainly affects teenage boys and older men, but it can affect men at any age. Normal developing pubertal males may be at risk for gynecomastia that is part of the normal developmental process. When puberty starts in boys there’s a rise in the levels of the hormones oestrogen and testosterone. There’ll be times when there’s more oestrogen than testosterone in the body, which causes the ducts and lobules will grow and the breast(s) will become larger and more noticeable. Other risk factors include:
- Taking certain medications
This surgery removes breast fat, but not the breast gland tissue itself.
This type of surgery removes the breast gland tissue. The surgery is often done endoscopically, meaning only small incisions are used. This less invasive type of surgery involves less recovery time.
Liposuction is the most common type of cosmetic surgery that breaks up and "sucks" fat from the body. The fat is removed through a hollow instrument, known as cannula. This is inserted under the skin. A powerful, high-pressure vacuum is applied to the cannula. It is used on the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, neck, chin, upper and backs of the arms, calves, and back.
- Tumescent Liposuction: Several liters of a saline solution with a local anesthetic (lidocaine) and a vessel-constrictor (epinephrine) are pumped below the skin in the area that is to be suctioned. The fat is suctioned, or sucked out, through small suction tubes. This is the most popular form of liposuction.
- Dry Liposuction: No fluid is injected before the fat is removed. This method is seldom used today. There is a higher risk of bruising and bleeding.
- Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction (UAL): Also known as ultrasonic liposuction, the cannula is energized with ultrasound. This makes the fat melt away on contact. The ultrasound vibrations burst the walls of the fat cells. This emulsifies, or liquified, the fat, making it easier to suction out. This method is suitable for fibrous areas, such as the male breast, back, and in areas where liposuction has been done before. After ultrasonic liposuction, suction-assisted liposuction is done to remove the liquefied fat.
- Power-assisted Liposuction (PAS): Also known as powered liposuction, PAS uses a specialized cannula with a mechanized system that rapidly moves back-and-forth, allowing the surgeon to pull out fat more easily.
A nose surgery is done to change its shape or improve its function. It is done to correct breathing problems related to the nose or correct disfigurement from trauma or birth defects.
- Open Rhinoplasty: This procedure is used for reshaping of nose. During the surgery, the doctor makes an incision in the strip of skin separating the nostrils. The skin and soft tissue is lifted off and the surgeon works with the underlying nasal anatomy. The advantages of Open Rhinoplasty is that the surgeon a can directly see the cartilage and other nasal anatomy, and is able to manipulate the nasal shape with more control and precision.
- Closed Rhinoplasty: The incisions are made within the nose and the skin is separated from the bone and cartilage, allowing the surgeon access to the underlying structure. The bone and cartilage can be reshaped, removed or augmented to get the desired shape or structure. The main advantage is decreased amount of time in surgery, less swelling and less postoperative healing time.
- Revision Rhinoplasty: It is also known as Secondary Rhinoplasty because it’s a second surgery performed to correct problems that have developed and persist after a previous surgical procedure on the nose. The problem could be one of appearance or the patient does not like the outcome of the first surgery, due to some structural difficulty or because of a trauma to accident occurring after a person has already had nose altering surgery.
- Filler Rhinoplasty: In Filler Rhinoplasty procedure, doctor uses injectable fillers to change the shape of your nose. With this approach the doctor is able to smoothen the sharp angles and bumps, change the shape of the tip of the nose and restore it symmetrically.
