Wrinkle Treatments

Anti-wrinkle injections are used to treat dynamic wrinkles those formed by repeated muscle contraction from facial expressions such as frown lines, crow’s feet. Results are seen within four to seven days. Repeat treatment is necessary after three to six months.

Dermal Fillers, Subdermal Fillers and Fat Transfer

These are used to treat static wrinkles, which are caused by ageing, repetitive muscle movement, and loss of facial volume. Their duration depends on the mobility of the treated area and the formulation. Fat transfer is along standing option where the patient’s own fat is harvested.

Hair Removal

Hair reduction Laser or a light beam treatments treat hair growth on areas such as the chest and back. The procedure target the follicle of the hair to destroy it at the base. Around six treatments are needed to remove or thin hair. The treatment involves mild discomfort and results are long term.

Lime Light – IPL

Intense pulsed light can also be used to smooth fine wrinkles, even skin tone, treat broken capillaries and improve sun damage and skin discolouration. It uses multiple wavelengths of light to target specific chromophores (light receptive cells) in the skin. Several treatments are required for satisfactory results.

Laser Resurfacing

Lasers are also used to treat lines and wrinkles by removing damaged skin and ecouraging the production of new cells. Moderm fractionated lasers can be used on the entire face as well as under the eyes and requires only 7 – 10 days of down time.

Thread Lifts

Threads inserted under the skin are used to lift sagging tissues, particularly in the mid-face and neck. The threads can be smooth or barbed, fixed or free floating, absorbable or non absrobable. Results last several years and extra threads can be added later to compensate for further ageing.

Liposculpture

Liposculpture can be used to remove fat from the body. Fat is suctioned from localised deposits through small incisions under local anaesthesia. Liposuction can be performed as a day surgery and patients usually return to work after two to three days. Bruising may last for several weeks and swelling for up to two months. The results are permanent.

Tummy Tuck – Abdominoplasty

“Tummy tuck” is a cosmetic surgery procedure used to make the abdomen more firm.

Abdominoplasty operations vary in scope and are frequently subdivided into categories. Depending on the extent of the surgery, a complete abdominoplasty can take 1 to 5 hours. A partial abdominoplasty (Mini-Tuck Abdominoplasty) can be completed between 1 to 2 hours.

COMPLETE ABDOMINOPLASTY

A complete (or full) abdominoplasty involves:

  • An incision is made from hip to hip just above the pubic area.
  • Another incision is made to free the navel from the surrounding skin.
  • The skin is detached from the abdominal wall to reveal the muscles and fascia to be tightened. The muscle fascia wall is tightened with sutures.
  • The remaining skin and fat are tightened by removing the excess and closing the defect.
  • The old belly button stalk is brought out through a new hole and sutured into place.
  • Liposuction is often used to refine the transition zones of the abdomen.
  • A dressing and sometimes a compression garment are applied and any excess fluid from the site is drained.

PARTIAL ABDOMINOPLASTY

A partial (or mini) abdominoplasty involves:

  • A smaller incision is made.
  • The skin and fat of the lower abdomen are detached in a more limited fashion from the muscle fascia. The skin is stretched down and excess skin removed.
  • Sometimes the belly button stalk is divided from the muscle below and the belly button slid down lower on the abdominal wall.
  • Sometimes a portion of the abdominal muscle fascia wall is tightened.
  • Liposuction is often used to contour the transition zone.
  • The flap is stitched back into place.

EXTENDED ABDOMINOPLASTY

An extended abdominoplasty is a complete abdominoplasty with extensions into the thighs (front) and/or flanks (sides).

COMBINATION PROCEDURES

An abdominoplasty is a component of a lower body lift and can be combined with liposuction contouring, breast reduction, breast lift.

RECOVERY

  • Depends on the problem to be treated, surgical technique(s), and other factors. Can take one to four weeks and patients are advised to take at least a portion of this recovery time off from work. eavy activity especially is best avoided during this time.
  • Initially there may be bruising and discomfort.
  • A supportive abdominal binder or compression garment can minimize swelling / bruising, and support the repaired tissues.
  • Patients are advised to avoid all forms of nicotine for a month or longer prior to surgery and also during the recovery period. Nicotine reduces blood flow to the wound prolonging healing, increasing risk of infection, and producing poorer scars.
  • The scar you produce will be limited by the type of scar your body grows. This will vary from one part of your body to another. Whilst you may make a bad scar in one area you may make a good scar in another.
  • Full recovery takes 3 – 6 months, with further fading of scars thereafter.

Tattoo Removal

Laser tattoo removal techniques can eliminate your tattoo with minimal side effects. The laser removes tattoos by breaking up the pigment into smaller pieces, which is then removed by the body over the following few weeks.
This process is repeated every eight weeks until the tattoo has been completely removed. Treatment can commence eight weeks after first getting your tattoo done.
Tattoos made by hand without a gun are easier to remove, and often come out within three treatments.

Professional tattoos made with a tattoo gun may take many more treatments – 14 to 20 are common.

Black and dark blue are the easiest colours to remove, other colours can take twice as long, white cannot be removed.
