Anti-wrinkle injections are mostly used for the cosmetic treatment of facial lines. In this case, anti-wrinkle injections (of a purified form of protein toxin) work by stopping the transmission of nerve impulses to the facial muscles that contract and cause wrinkles, such as frown-lines between the eyebrows and crow’s feet around the eyes.
A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, is a surgical procedure that corrects a sagging or deeply furrowed brow. The procedure is often performed to reduce the creases, or ‘frown lines’, that develop across the forehead and on the bridge of the nose. It can also raise the eyebrows to a more alert and youthful position.
Ear reshaping, or otoplasty, is a surgical procedure to alter the shape of the ear. Otoplasty can be performed in both adults and children. The operation is most commonly performed to correct excessive prominence or “sticking out” of the ears
Eyelid surgery, also called blepharoplasty, corrects sagging eyelids and puffiness around the eyes, which may contribute to a tired or sad appearance. This appearance of the eyelids is usually the result of the aging but loose eyelid skin can also be genetic. Depending upon your circumstances, there are several different techniques used in eyelid surgery.
A facelift, also known as meloplasty or rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that tightens and removes sagging skin on the face and neck. Facial muscles may be surgically tightened to improve their tone. Excess fat may also be removed or repositioned as part of the surgery.
Fat injection, also known as fat transfer or fat grafting, is a procedure that improves the body’s contours and proportion by removing fat from one or more areas and injecting the fat into another area to add volume and reshape specific areas of the body. Common areas treated with fat injection are the face, buttocks, breasts and to reconstruct contour problems in any area of the body after weight loss, accidents or previous surgery.
Nose surgery, also called rhinoplasty, involves reshaping the internal cartilage framework of the nose in order to change its external appearance. The procedure can improve the shape, size and general appearance of the nose as well as the overall balance of facial features.
Although reshaping of the nose is usually performed for cosmetic reasons, rhinoplasty can also be performed to correct breathing difficulties that may have been caused by a previous nasal injury.
Arm lift surgery, otherwise known as brachioplasty, is a procedure that reshapes the upper arms by reducing excess skin, and in some cases fat, resulting in smoother skin and better-proportioned contours of the upper arms.
Thigh lift surgery is a procedure that reshapes the thighs by reducing excess skin, and in some cases fat, resulting in smoother skin and better-proportioned contours of the thighs and lower body.
A body lift is a surgical procedure that removes large skin folds and fat from the hips, outer upper thighs, lower abdomen, and upper buttocks, usually after massive or significant weight loss. It is also used to tighten saggy skin due to childbirth or ageing. The procedure is a form of body contouring surgery and is designed to improve the lower body’s appearance by modifying its size or shape.
Liposuction, also known as lipectomy or lipoplasty, is a procedure that improves the body’s contours and proportion by removing excess fat deposits to slim and reshape specific areas of the body. Common areas targeted include thighs, buttocks, abdomen, arms, neck and under the chin.
Abdominoplasty, also known as ‘tummy tuck’, is a surgical procedure designed to improve the appearance of the abdominal area. The abdomen may be weakened by factors such as pregnancy, weight loss or as part of the normal ageing process. The procedure involves the removal of excess sagging fat and skin to improve the shape and tone of the underlying tissue that supports the fat and skin. This procedure can be cosmetic or reconstructive in nature.
Breast augmentation, also known as augmentation mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to enlarge the breasts using breast implants. Today there are many different types of breast implants available. Depending upon your individual circumstances, the implants may be placed behind your breast or beneath you pectoral muscles.
Breast asymmetry correction surgery is a procedure that improves the differences between the breasts if these are noticeable. Minor differences between your breasts is normal, but if these differences are larger than the size, shape or position of one or both of the breasts can be changed to make the breasts more equal.
Depending on the amount of difference between your breasts and your individual breast characteristics there are a few options – these include making the smaller breast bigger (breast augmentation), making the larger breast smaller (breast reduction), making both breasts bigger or smaller, or lifting a drooping breast into a more normal position (breast lift).
Breast augmentation and lift surgery is designed to enlarge the breast size and to reshape and tighten the breast contour by removing excess skin. This gives the breasts a larger, more firm and raised appearance. This operation is commonly used to restore breast volume and shape after weight reduction or pregnancy and breastfeeding. This operation can also reduce the size of the areola, which can become enlarged over time.
Breast implant revision is the surgery performed to remove or replace your breast implants. Breast implants are not lifetime devices. At some future point, they will need to be removed or replaced. When entering into the decision to have breast implants, it’s essential to keep this in mind.
The most typical reasons for implant revision include capsular contracture, implant migration, asymmetry and changes to the breast tissue due to natural changes occurring with ageing, pregnancy, weight fluctuations and time. There is a small group who don’t co-exist comfortably with their implants, and it is not possible to predict who this might be before implant surgery.
Loss of skin elasticity, gravity and other factors such as weight loss, pregnancy and breast-feeding ultimately affect the shape and firmness of a woman’s breasts. Breast lift surgery, also called mastopexy, removes excess breast skin to raise, reshape and firm breasts. The nipples and areolae (the pigmented skin surrounding the nipples) are repositioned, and the areolae sometimes may be reduced in size.
Breast reduction, also called reduction mammoplasty, is designed to relieve the physical discomfort often associated with very large breasts and to enhance the overall appearance of the breasts. During a breast reduction procedure, the surgeon removes excess breast tissue and skin, resulting in smaller and firmer breasts.
Gynaecomastia is an excessive enlargement of the male breast that can cause physical and emotional discomfort and may affect a man’s self-confidence. It is a common condition that may affect one or both sides. If gynaecomastia develops during puberty it may be as a result of hormone imbalance. When it occurs in later life it can be associated with other issues including prescription medication such as steroids.
Breast reconstruction is a surgical procedure that rebuilds a new breast or breasts to resemble a natural breast in appearance and form. Breast reconstruction is usually performed immediately after, or sometime after a mastectomy, and is a physically and emotionally rewarding procedure for a woman who has lost a breast due to cancer or other condition.
Hand surgery encapsulates a range of treatments designed to restore the function and appearance of the hand. In recent years, Specialist Plastic Surgeons have been at the forefront of pioneering dramatic advances in treating patients with hand injuries, degenerative disorders, and birth defects of the hand.
Nipple surgery can be performed as part of a breast augmentation/reduction to ensure that the overall nipple placement and shape suit your newly created breasts.
Nipple surgery can also be performed separately, as a standalone procedure to correct deformities such as inverted nipples, asymmetrical nipples, to remedy tuberous breasts, or for more aesthetic reasons such as low hanging nipples.
Skin cancer is the uncontrolled growth of abnormal skin cells and is the most common of all cancers. Surgery is a standard treatment for skin cancers. The surgical extraction technique can depend on the type of skin cancer, how large the cancer is, where it is on the body, and other factors. Most often, the surgery happens in a doctor’s office or hospital clinic using a local anaesthetic (numbing medicine).
Doctors use Mohs surgery (also called Mohs micrographic surgery) to treat skin cancer. The goal is to remove as much of it as possible while saving the healthy tissue around it.
