OUR PROCEDURES INCLUDE
Facelift, also known as a rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that improves visible signs of aging in the face and neck by adjusting the fat, muscle, and skin on your face to create a smoother, more radiant and youthful appearance.
During the free in-depth consultation, the Cosmetic Surgeon will examine the patients and recommend the best type of face lift to achieve the most natural results.
The procedure is often done as an inpatient procedure and is performed under general anaesthesia to minimize discomfort. Depending on the patient and what procedures are being done, the face lift can take a few hours to complete.
After the surgery, patients should expect bruising, numbness, tightness and swelling lasting 2-3 weeks. Results from the surgery will be long lasting and depending on the patient, it may take several months for the swelling to completely diminish and incision lines to fade.
A traditional face lift incision usually begins in the hairline at the temples and continues to the ear and end of the lower scalp. Fat may be redistributed from the face, jowls and neck. The tissue underneath the face is then repositioned (this is commonly the deeper layers of the face and neck). In addition, the muscles are also lifted.
Last skin is rewrapped over the uplifted contours and excess skin is trimmed away. A second incision under the chin may be necessary to further improve an aging neck.
Eyelid Surgery, also known as eye bag removal or blepharoplasty is a cosmetic eye surgery performed to restore a more youthful appearance and correct issues with vision caused by drooping Eyelids.
An eyelid surgery is done by tightening saggy or hooded eyelids, and removing or moving fatty pouches beneath the eyes. When loose folds in the Eyelid and under eye bags are reduced, the eyes usually appear brighter and more alert. Eyelid Surgery can be performed on either the upper or lower eyelids, or both. Your Surgeon will advise on the best technique for your surgery during your consultation.
During Eyelid surgery, incisions are usually made in the creases of your upper eyelids and right below the lashes in your lower eyelids (making scars seem almost invisible). After the fat under the eye is repositioned and excess skin is removed, the incisions are closed with tiny sutures designed to be almost unnoticeable. Most blepharoplasty surgery takes between one to three hours.
Rhinoplasty is a procedure that is done by a Cosmetic Surgeon to enhance the appearance of the nose by changing the height, length and width and improving the aesthetic appearance of the face.
Rhinoplasty can also be used to correct breathing problems from the slanting angle of the septum. Additionally, rhinoplasty might involve adding or removing some parts of the bone and cartilage or adding grafts. During the consultation, the Cosmetic Surgeon will discuss the patient’s goals and evaluate what nasal surgery can be realistically achieved.
Rhinoplasty takes 2-4 hours to complete under general anaesthesia depending on the technique used.
Nasal surgery is either preformed using a closed procedure in which incisions are made inside the nose or an open procedure in which an incision is made across the narrow part of the nostrils called the columella.
The skin that covers the nasal bones and cartilages is raised through the incisions allowing access to reshape the structure of the nose. The Cosmetic Surgeon can add or remove bone, cartilage and/or add grafts to adjust the structures and size inside the nose.
Dissolvable stitches will be used to close incisions that will disappear after a week and a splint might be placed over the nose for support.
Recovery times varies and could take at least 2 weeks before the bruising begins to fade and several months before the nose settles into its new shape.
You will wake from the procedure with a splint across your nose and packing in your nostrils. The packing will be removed prior to discharge. It’s advisable to take 7-10 days off work after a nose job with the splint being removed around day 11-14 days.
Otoplasty, or ear pinning surgery is a straightforward procedure which involves the experienced Surgeon making small and discreet surgical incisions behind the ears and within the ears to ensure that there is no visible scarring.
The procedure usually takes between one and two hours to complete while the patient is under anaesthetic – this procedure can be performed under both a general anaesthetic or a local anaesthetic, although most patients prefer a GA.
During the consultation, the Surgeon will examine the structure of the ears and discuss possibilities for correcting the problems. Even if only one ear needs “pinning back,” surgery will probably be recommended on both ears to achieve the most natural, symmetrical appearance.
Otoplasty surgery begins with an incision just behind the ear, close to where the ear joins the head. The Surgeon will then remove cartilage and skin and sculpt the ear to the desired look. Cartilage is then pinned back with sutures.
In other instances, the Surgeon will not remove any cartilage, but use stitches to hold the cartilage permanently in place. After sculpting the cartilage to the right shape, the Surgeon will apply sutures.
