Surgical Face Lift
The Face-Lift is one of the most well-known cosmetic procedures, and for good reason. It’s one of the most rewarding plastic surgeries for both the patient and the physician, in terms of its power to reverse the effects of aging on the face and to restore the spirit of the individual.
A face-lift removes excess fat and skin, tightens the underlying muscles, and re-drapes the skin of the face and neck. A full face-lift surgery can have a dramatic impact on someone who feels they have lost their youthful glow. For some people, a mini-face lift is all that’s needed to turn back the clock several years.
Have you ever dreamed of an attractive posterior? There is good news for you: buttock reshaping is now possible.
Just like breast augmentation, your posterior can also be reshaped into being attractive. The size can be augmented by special silicone butt implants, which are inserted into your buttock muscle, enhancing its shape and contours. If you do not wish to use silicone, you can also opt for the “Brazilian Butt Lift”, where your own body fat (from other areas) is lipo-sucked, processed and re-injected into your buttock area, enhancing its shape.
On the other hand, if you feel your back side is too large, then it can be reduced by a day-care, liposculpting procedure.
The procedure usually takes a few hours and is done under general anesthesia. A day’s admission is all that is required. In fact, in case of silicon enhancement, you can resume your daily activities on the
second day after surgery; a few more days of care are required after a fat augmentation. There are rarely any complications, long-term or short. Please book an appointment with us for further information.
Well-proportioned and shapely breasts are an asset to any woman. Small breasts can be enlarged by plastic surgery called breast augmentation surgery or Breast enlargement surgery. This is done by using breast implants. Breast augmentation is the second most common cosmetic surgery performed on women. Breast enlargement using breast implants can give a woman more proportional shape and may improve self-esteem.
You can have breast augmentation done if you want to:
• Increase the size of small or underdeveloped breasts.
• Reshape and enlarge breasts that have lost their shape and fullness after child-bearing or aging.
• Create symmetry between breasts of differing shapes and size.
How is it Done:
The Breast Implants India is surgically placed in a pocket located inside the breast, either behind the breast tissue or behind the breast muscle (pectoral muscle).
There are several ways in which a Breast Lift Augmentation implant can be inserted. The most common method is through an incision just under the breast in the crease where the breast meets the chest wall. This is called an inframammary incision. The incision scar is well hidden in the skin fold or bra line. The implant may also be inserted through the nipple and areola (peri-areolar incision), or through an incision in the armpit.
Breast implants are high quality medical devises made with silicone which is a bio-compatible material that is used for many years in medicine. It is also used in artificial joint replacements, cardiac pacemakers, and syringes, in addition to hundreds of products that we come into contact with every day, including food, plastic products, clothing and even the furniture we sit on. Silicone is the best material because it is the least reactive, soft and durable. Long years of research and usage has proved them to be safe.
There is no evidence that breast augmentation bears any relationship to breast Cancer.
All breast implants are not alike. You can choose:
- Size: from less than hundred cubic centimeter to more than 500 cc. most common sizes are 250-400 cc
- Type: Silicon filled/ saline filled- Both the implants are safe and effective. Saline implants are popular in USA and silicone in Europe and India. Any type can be used depending on patient and surgeon’s preference.
- Shape: Round/ teardrop: Round is used more commonly.
- Surface: Textured/smooth.
- Brand: Many international brands are available with different costs and warranties.
5 Steps to beautiful breasts:
Step One: Consultation
If you have felt conscious about your flat chest, if you want to give up wearing padded bra the first step would be to fix an appointment with our surgeon. During your first visit all your questions will be answered personally by the doctor. You will be asked about your specific requirements regarding size and will examine your breasts. In addition you will be asked about your medical history and about any current medications. You can actually see and feel the real implants and can try them inside your bra. You will also be given information brochures. You will also be prescribed a list of routine blood tests and X-ray to assess your fitness for anaesthesia.
Step Two: Preoperative Evaluation:
If you feel comfortable about having your breasts enlarged with implants you can schedule a second appointment. This time you can get your test reports along with you and complete the process of choosing the correct size.
At this time you can bring along a friend, your husband or anyone else you want to. On the other hand if you do not want to inform anyone else or if you can go ahead on your own. Preoperational consent forms are filled and clinical pictures taken at this point of time. After this process appointment for Breast enlargement surgery can be fixed.
Step Three: Surgery:
You report at the hospital on the morning of Breast enlargement surgery. Before taking you inside the operation room the implant pocket will be marked on your breasts. Operation is done under general anaesthesia and is pain free.
Step Four: After Surgery:
After Breast enlargement surgery there will be bandage and bra on your chest. You can drink water after 4 hours and have some snacks afterwards. You walk and have normal dinner on the same evening.
Step Five: Recovery*
You will need some assistance initially. Many women start light work in a week’s time. By the end of one month usually you are feeling quite normal and ready to resume all normal activities. Breasts look swollen initially but usually settle down 1-3 months.
Breast Reduction (Reduction Mammoplasty)
Ever felt that your breasts were too large and heavy — hanging uncomfortably low? Well-developed breasts enhance woman’s beauty. But the same breasts sometimes grow disproportionately large and become a reason for chronic pain and embarrassment.
Breast Implants surgery can bring large breasts to normal size. You may be a good candidate for breast reduction surgery if you have one or more of the following conditions:
- Breasts are too large in proportion to your body frame.
- Back, neck or shoulder pain caused by the weight of your breasts.
- Skin irritation beneath your breasts.
- Grooving in your shoulders from tight bra straps.
- Restriction of physical activity due to the size and weight of your breasts.
- Heavy, pendulous breasts with nipples and areolas that point downward.
- One breast is much larger than the other.
- Dissatisfaction or self-consciousness about the largeness of your breasts.
- Inability to find bras that fit.
Breast reduction surgery removes some of the tissue and skin from the breasts to reshape and reduce the size of the breasts. It can also make the area of dark skin surrounding the nipple (areola) smaller. To remove tissue and skin from the breast, the surgeon first makes one or more cuts in the breast. After the excess tissue and skin have been removed, the skin is closed with stitches. Sometimes the nipple and areola have to be removed and repositioned.
Breast reduction surgery is done in a hospital or surgical center usually using general anesthesia. The surgery usually takes 3 to 5 hours. An overnight stay is not usually required. For smaller reductions, the surgery may be done with local anesthesia.
A breast lift (Mastopexy) is similar to a breast reduction, except that in most cases only skin is removed for a breast lift. A breast lift can raise sagging or drooping breasts, which is a common problem with large, heavy breasts, and can elevate the nipple and areola. To lift the breasts, excess skin from the bottom of the breast and the area around the areola is removed. The remaining skin is then brought together, which tightens and raises the breast.
3 Steps to smaller breasts:
Step One: Consultation
During the consultation, you can talk our doctor about your desired breast size as well as anything else about your breasts that you would like to see improved.
You can see the representative clinical pictures of patients to satisfy yourself about the procedure and ask any questions regarding the results, and possible risks of the surgery.
You should come to the consultation prepared to discuss your medical history. This will include information about any medical conditions, drug allergies, medical treatments you have received, previous surgeries including breast biopsies, and medications. It is important for you to provide complete information. You should tell if you plan to lose a significant amount of weight, particularly if you have noticed that your breasts become smaller with weight loss. It is recommended that you stabilize your weight before having surgery. Routine diagnostic tests will be ordered.
Step Two: Preoperative Evaluation:
Once you have decided to undergo the surgery, you will be evaluated for your fitness for anaesthesia by the anaesthesiologist. Your diagnostic test reports will be studied. Doctor will examine your breasts, taking measurements and clinical photographs for your medical record. The size and shape of your breasts, the quality of your skin, and the placement of the nipples and areolas will be carefully evaluated. You will sign the consent forms and will be given detailed preoperative instructions in writing.
Step Three: Breast Lift Surgery:
You report at the hospital on the morning of surgery. Before taking you inside operation room your breasts will be marked with you standing to shape them to desired size. Operation is under general or local anaesthesia and is pain free.
You will wake up soon after surgery with bandage and bra on your chest. You can drink water after 4 hours and have some snacks afterwards. You walk and have dinner on same evening. Drains (tubes) are removed usually on next morning and you are ready to go home.
You will need some assistance initially. Many women start light work in a week’s time. By the end of one month usually you are feeling quite normal and ready to resume all normal activities. Breasts look big initially due to swelling but final size and shape is visible in 3-6 months.
Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)
If you wake up in the morning feeling fine but looking like you didn’t sleep well, or if you feel that puffiness and droopy lids are causing you to look old, eyelid surgery may be a good choice for you.
Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is a procedure used to correct loose skin, pouching and sagging around the eyes, and for removing fatty deposits that cause puffy bags around the eyes.
Ear Lobe Repair
Ear lobe holes enlarge or tear due to constant use of heavy earrings.
Ear lobe Repair is a quick surgical procedure to close the tear in the ear lobe and restore it to its original look.
This simple surgery is performed under local anesthesia, and takes approx. 20 minutes per ear lobe. The ear lobe can be re-pierced after 3- 6 months.
Improves body shape by removing exercise-resistant fat deposits with a tube and vacuum device. Can be performed using the tumescent technique, in which targeted fat cells are infused with saline containing solution with a local anesthetic before liposuction to reduce post-operative bruising and swelling. Common locations for liposuction include chin, cheeks, neck, upper arms, above breasts, abdomen, buttocks, hips, thighs, knees, calves, ankles. For larger volumes of fat or for fibrous body areas, ultrasound-assisted lipoplasty (UAL) may be used. UAL is a new technique in which an ultrasound probe is inserted beneath the skin to “liquify” the fat before it is suctioned.
Length: 1 to 2 hours or more.
UAL: 20-40 percent longer than traditional liposuction.
Anesthesia: Local, epidural, or general anesthesia can be used for the surgery
In / out patient: Usually outpatient, this means there is no hospital stay. However,extensive procedures may require short inpatient stay.
Side Effects: Temporary bruising, swelling, numbness, soreness, burning sensation.
Tumescent: Temporary fluid drainage from incision sites.
UAL: Larger incisions for cannula.
Recovery*: Most patients are back to work in 1 to 2 weeks. More strenuous activity: 2 to 4 weeks. Full recovery* from swelling and bruising: 1 to 6 months or more. Use of tumescent technique or UAL may decrease post-operative bruising and swelling.
Duration Of Results: Permanent, with sensible diet and exercise.
Planning your surgery:
In your initial consultation, your surgeon will evaluate your health, determine where your fat deposits lie and assess the condition of your skin. Your surgeon will explain the body-contouring methods that may be most appropriate for you. For example, if you believe you want liposuction in the abdominal area, you may learn that an abdominoplasty or “tummy tuck” may more effectively meet your goals; or that a combination of traditional liposuction and UAL would be the best choice for you. Be frank in discussing your expectations with your surgeon. He or she should be equally frank with you, describing the procedure in detail and explaining its risks and limitations.
After your surgery
After surgery, you will likely experience some fluid drainage from the incisions. Occasionally, a small drainage tube may be inserted beneath the skin for a couple of days to prevent fluid build-up. To control swelling and to help your skin better fit its new contours, you may be fitted with a snug elastic garment to wear over the treated area for a few weeks. Your doctor may also prescribe antibiotics to prevent infection. Don’t expect to look or feel great right after surgery. Even though the newer techniques are believed to reduce some post-operative discomforts, you may still experience some pain, burning, swelling, bleeding and temporary numbness. Pain can be controlled with medications prescribed by your surgeon, though you may still feel stiff and sore for a few days. It is normal to feel a bit anxious or depressed in the days or weeks following surgery. However, this feeling will subside as you begin to look and feel better.
Healing is a gradual process. Your surgeon will probably tell you to start walking around as soon as possible to reduce swelling and to help prevent blood clots from forming in your legs. You will begin to feel better after about a week or two and you should be back at work within a few days following your surgery. The stitches are removed or dissolve on their own within the first week to 10 days. Activity that is more strenuous should be avoided for about a month as your body continues to heal. Although most of the bruising and swelling usually disappears within three weeks, some swelling may remain for six months or more. Your surgeon will schedule follow-up visits to monitor your progress and to see if any additional procedures are needed. If you have any unusual symptoms between visits — for example, heavy bleeding or a sudden increase in pain — or any questions about what you can and can’t do, call your doctor.
