Also called blepharoplasty, this procedure treats droopy eyelids, loose skin and fat bags beneath the skin. In addition, fat may be injected to correct hollows underneath lower lids for a more rejuvenated look. This procedure is done under local or general anaesthesia and does not require hospitalisation. Recovery takes a week and scars are not noticeable.
Loose skin of the neck, with loss of youthful contour (‘turkey wattle’), can be corrected by adjusting muscle position in the neck, liposuction and removal of excess skin.
This procedure makes use of various techniques to create a smoother and more youthful face. Through incisions around the ear, a surgeon removes excess skin and manipulates deeper layers of tissue to tighten the face. Fat injection can be used at the same time to restore volume to the face.
Breast augmentation is a common procedure. Enlargement is carried out with silicone gel or saline-filled implants via an incision in the lower breast fold, areola or armpit. The procedure is minimally invasive and has relatively few risks.
Heavy breasts can cause neck and back pain, and can sometimes be a source of social embarrassment. Skin and breast tissue are surgically removed to create the desired breast size. Risks can include a change in sensation over the nipple and difficulty in breast-feeding.
Mastopexy or breast lift
When breasts are hanging low and don’t have volume, a remodelling of the gland can be done using the same procedure as breast reduction. Women are very satisfied with this procedure that redefines the whole silhouette.
Breast reconstruction after removal of the breast due to cancer can be done by using the tissues of the lower stomach skin and fat or the skin and muscle of the back to create a breast mound. Continued cancer surveillance is done by the oncologist.
Reduction of the male breast
Breast enlargement in male adolescents can be a source of social embarrassment and may be treated by removing the excess breast and fat tissue. It leaves no visible scars.
Unlike liposuction, this is a major surgery. Also called abdominoplasty, the surgery removes excess fat and tightens muscles in the abdominal wall. It leaves a permanent scar. This operation is not recommended for overweight patients or for those planning a future pregnancy.
This is the most common cosmetic surgery. Using a suction device, deposits of fat from the tummy, thighs, hips and buttocks are removed. The result is a smoother contour in the treated area. Liposuction works best on patients of average or slightly average weight. Risks are minimal, though infection and temporary skin discoloration can occur.
Keeping the triceps muscles toned is a challenge as we age, especially for women. Extra skin and fat may dangle from the upper arms. This can be corrected by a brachioplasty, which tightens the under-portion of the arm between the elbow and the armpit. This procedure will leave a permanent scar on the inner side of the arm.
