"The operation went well"
3.5 50Reviewed 25 Apr 2018 Verified user. Review confirmed by phone.
Treatment Received: Eyelid Surgery
Time will tell when the swelling goes down and look normal.

The table that the procedure was done on was to narrow. My dislike of needles, injections of upper eyelid was as expected and the operation went well.
Total Amount Paid $3000

"I would definitely recommend this clinic."
5 50Reviewed 03 Jul 2016 Verified user. Review confirmed by email.
Treatment Received: Acne Treatment
K M Sugical were very prompt with their contact and very helpful in accomodating me getting an early appointment.
We saw one of the nurses who was very professional and helpful in explaining all types of treatment available to us. She was really good at talking to my daughter and making her feel at ease. We decided on a course of action but were given information to consider about other treatments we might look at in the future.
I would definitely recommend this clinic.

Facelift

The MACS-Lift (minimal access cranial suspension) is an effective face lift operation that is designed to lift the lower two thirds of the face in a relatively straightforward manner with minimal inconvenience. Only a limited amount of excess skin is removed, resulting in an inconspicuous scar in the crease in front of the ear. In contrast to most other face lift techniques, the MACS-Lift can be performed under local anaesthetic and light sedation. Liposuction under the chin may also be carried out at the same time for an improved result in the neck.

Many individuals between 35 and 70 years of age may be suitable for this type of superficial plane face lift. It is best for people whose neck and facial skin has begun to sag, but who still have some elasticity and muscular tone.

The following features can be improved:

- Deep grooves that run from the corner of the mouth to the nose
- Wrinkles and sagging skin near the cheek bones
- The jaw line where there is early squaring off and jowling
- Loose skin of the neck and under the chin

A MACS-lift is also an excellent procedure for patients who have previously undergone a face lift and require a touch up procedure.

 
Liposuction

Tumescent liposuction is a liposuction technique which has been specially developed by cosmetic dermatologists. Tumescent liposuction is performed entirely under local anaesthetic and is recognised as the safest form of liposuction. The objective is to improve body contours by removing unwanted fat in a very careful manner. The small cannulas used also give the best results.

What is Tumescent Liposuction?

The word tumescent means swollen and firm. Tumescent liposuction relies on large volumes of saline solution, local anaesthetic, and adrenaline being infiltrated into the fatty areas. These areas then become swollen and firm. This state enables the surgeon to insert a small instrument called a cannula through tiny incisions in order to remove unwanted fatty deposits so as to create an attractive body contour.


What areas can be treated by liposuction?

Lateral thighs (saddle bags) and buttocks
Medial thighs (friction sites) and knees
Upper and lower abdomen (tummy)
Thickened calves and ankles
Male flanks and waist (love handles)
Back and upper back (buffalo hump)
Enlarged male breasts
Female hips and waist
Upper arms
Chin, cheeks and neck

Who is a good candidate for liposuction surgery?

Anybody can have tumescent liposuction but the best candidates are relatively fit individuals who exercise regulary and are of normal body weight or slightly over weight and who have body contours which are out of proportion.

Patients who are significantly overweight can still be good candidates for liposuction to some body areas. It is important to have realistic expectations and positive attitude. Age is not significant factor. Patients should be in good general health, but tumescent liposuction is a very safe technique and can be under taken despite some medical conditions

How and why our skin changes

As we age the skin undergoes visible changes such as irregular pigmentation, increased pore size, damage from the suns rays and loss of volume and elasticity. Other factors such as cigarette smoke can lead to pre-mature ageing of the skin. The pursuit of a suntan through sun exposure or sun bedding?is now known to be a major cause of damage to the skin. Also known as photoageing, this is believed to be responsible for almost 80% of the skin changes attributed to the ageing process.

Why wrinkles form

Many wrinkles occur when we use our facial muscles to create expressions and??these are known as dynamic wrinkles. When we smile our eye wrinkles become more prominent and when we frown the vertical lines between our eyebrows become more noticeable.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are becoming an increasingly popular treatment option. With minimal down time patients can resume? normal activities? after the treatment and have the benefit of an immediately obvious improvement.

Dermal Fillers can be used to:

- Increase lip volume
- Enhance lip borders
- Remodel or enhance cheeks
- Correct volume loss
- Fill tear troughs and pre-jowl sulci
- Smooth nasolabial folds
- Soften marionette lines and mental crease
-Lift mouth frown and eyebrow droop
- Soften forehead lines and crows feet

Combination treatments with Treatment for lines and wrinkles?? or [Treatment name removed]?? are often preferred.
