Abdominal Etching (3 hours )

Abdominal Etching or Abdominal Sculpting or Creation of "Six-Packed" Abdomen can be done by special cannulas similar to the liposuction cannulas. The procedure is similar to liposuction procedures but concentrates on making certain lines of the abdomen more defined. 

 
Areola Reduction (45 mins)

Patients who have big breasts usually have big areolas. Sometimes, the big areola is also brought about by pregnancy and when they nurse their babies. The areola can be reduced at the same time that a breast reduction is done or it can be done separately by cutting away the periphery of the areola. If done properly, the areola will remain smaller than before, even if the areola stretches after surgery.    

 
Arm Lift (3 hours )

Arm lift is usually done on patients who have big, very, loose skin at the back of their upper arm. The looseness of the skin is usually visible after massive weight loss. Arm lift is done by cutting away the loose skin at the area of the triceps  and approximating the skin edges to bring about a more taut skin. At times when the skin is accompanied by some fat, suction assisted lipectomy of the accompanying fat is in order prior to cutting away the excess skin.  

 
Belly Button Reshaping (1 hour )
 
Bra-Line Back Lift (3 hours )
 
Breast Implants (1 hour 30 mins)
One of the more popular procedures requested is breast augmentation. The reasons for breast augmentation are varied: from being naturally having a genetic predisposition for a skinny body and a proportionally small breasts to “wanting” to retain her previously youthful, well-endowed bossoms that were loss to giving birth and nursing babies or simply to enhance her feminine sex appeal. Not to be outdone are transvestites who go to all extremes to look “naturally” female. There are basically 2 types of shapes of breast implants: round shape and anatomic shape (“tear-drop”). Based on surface; there are 3 types: smooth, textured and polyurethane. Based on composition; 2 types: silicone (medical grade of course) and saline but both in elastomere bags made of silicone. With regards to approaches / incisions to insert an implant; 3 approaches for round smooth silicone implants: Axilla (armpit), peri-areolar or inframammary; for anatomic implants: peri-areolar or inframammary and for saline implants: peri-areolar, inframammary and transumbilical (TUBA). The placement of the implants can be in a subglandular plane or in a dual plane, under the muscle on the supero-medial and subglandular in the infero-lateral pole.

Brow Lift

Brow Lift is a procedure which isused to lift the eyebrows or restore them to a higher position; usually theoriginal position of your eyebrows in your youth.  As we age, the skin thins out due to loss ofsome elements within the skin, such as less oil glands and fat cells. Coupledwith the effects of the sun’s ultraviolet rays, these can result in sagging ofthe skin with some wrinkling, notably in the face, including the forehead.

Candidates for a brow lift can bethose whose upper eyelids look like “curtains” going down along the sides ofthe eyes and those who have undergone upper eyelid blepharoplasty, who  after several years, appear to need additionalskin removal on the upper eyelids. For those who previously underwent uppereyelid blepharoplasty, removal of additional skin on the upper eyelids mayfurther pull down the eyebrow and may put the eyebrows in a more awkwardposition or pull up the upper eyelid and cause a perennial “surprised” look! Inthis instance, the individual may just need a brow lift for the skin creaseover the upper eyelids to re-appear and give the patient a refreshed look.

Eyelid surgery

Blepharoplasty is the medicalterm used to remove the excess skin and the fat that is pushing out the skin,in both the upper and lower eyelids. The term blepharoplasty can also apply tothe creation of an upper eyelid fold, more popularly done in Asian or Orientalpatients.  For the more senior set ofpatients, the sides of the upper eyelids may cause them to experience a “blindspot” of their peripheral vision; in which case, a combination of a brow lift andupper eyelid blepharoplasty is best suited. Sometimes, if there is too muchskin that folds down from the upper eyelids, it may cause the eyelash to gointo the eye, in a condition called entropion.   In all these conditions, relief is found inan upper eyelid blepharoplasty.

In the lower eyelid, the extrabulge just below the eyelashes is more likely due to the hypertrophy of themuscle and not because of fat. However, if you find the bulge to be about ahalf centimeter or a centimeter below the eyelashes, the bulge is more likelydue to the fat that is pushing out the skin. The drooping of the upper eyelidstogether with the bulging of the skin and fat at the lower eyelids give anindividual the “tired look” and “adds age” to the patient’s facial features.  Removal of these excess fat and skin, both inthe upper and lower eyelids gives the individual a more “refreshed” look of theface

There are patients who, becauseof the chronic presence of bulging of fat on the lower eyelids has caused someweakness of the canthal ligaments; which hold the margin of the lower eyelidsclose to the eye. In these group of patients, an additional procedure calledcanthopexy prevents the white of the eye from being overexposed.

Facelift

When skin over the sides of thenose and mouth start to gather and fold, then it may be time to consider afacelift procedure.  Facelift orRhytidectomy involves pulling up or cutting out a part of the underlying tissueof the face called the SMAS, to tighten it and subsequently pull up or firm upthe skin of the face. The SMAS, which supports the skin of the face, is muchlike the lining of a flimsy blouse.  Pullingthe lining of a blouse in one direction will surely make the blouse move towardsthe direction of the pull.  Since theeffect of gravity manifests itself on the face in the form of more “skin folds”along the sides of the nose and mouth, pulling the SMAS in the oppositedirection rejuvenates the face by repositioning the skin back to its previousyouthful location.  An additional benefitnoted is the pull on the skin of the neck; wherein some, if not most, of thebands on the neck are eliminated and creates an angle between the neck and thechin.

There are different techniquesthat can be done in a facelift. Traditionally, the lines of the cut run alongthe temple of the head, within the thickness of the hair, down towards thefront of the ear, around the ear lobe, to the back of the ear, then to the backof the head. The direction of the pull on the SMAS is slightly inclined upwardand towards the back. Any excess skin due to the pull of the SMAS is cut awayand the wound edges are approximated and closed. Now a days, with the trendtowards the minimally invasive procedures, the lines of incision are shorter:running a little back to the hairline of the temple, down the front of the ear (butpartly hidden), and ends at the back of the ear lobe. I employ the short scarwith the use of the Minimal Access Cranial Suspension (MACS) lift technique;wherein, the direction of the pull on the SMAS is vertically upwards. Thistechnique also gives some volume to the face.

In some patients, replacement ofthe volume of the face through Autologous Fat Gra

Liposuction
A minimally invasive method of removing excessive deposits of fat, in-between the skin and muscle layers, in unwanted places. Usually these accumulated lumps of fat are resistant to diet and exercise. Most common areas affected are the belly, the sides of the thighs, the sides of the waist and the back of the upper arms. In some, fat also accumulates under the chin, at the chest (in males, resulting in “man-boobs”), back (back “rolls”) and the legs and forearms. The process involves using long thin tubes which deliver the tumescent fluid to the target areas through small cuts in the skin about 3mm to 5mm in size. Strategically located so as not to be readily visible the fat is the removed by applying negative pressure (vacuum) through these long thin tubes we call cannula’s. Liposuction is also called suction assisted lipectomy.

Rhinoplasty

The nose, being at the center ofthe face, can become the focal point of interest when facing people.  As the nose can come in different shapes andsizes and looks, it is but natural to be one of the top procedures, if not thetop aesthetic/cosmetic procedure that is asked for from plastic surgeons.

Rhinoplasty or nose job canwidely range from:  making the tip ofyour nose pointy in a Tip Plasty procedure  or smaller, by trimming the wings of aseemingly wide nose with Alar Trimming; to building up a patient’s nose bridge,usually with a Malay nose and some Asian noses, at the same time that a tip plastyand alar trimming is done. A dermabrasion procedure with skin grafting, priorto further contouring the nose in patients with Rhinophyma, multiple lumps onthe nose brought about by the build up of oil glands deep underneath the skinof the nose.

Rhinoplasty can be done with theaid of inert prosthetic, medical grade implants silicone or ePTFP (popularlyknown as Gore Tex) or with autologous tissue such as cartilage that can betaken from the ears or from the cartilage of the ribs.

For Caucasians, the bridge of thenose may be curved like a parrot’s beak or crooked and deviated to one side andstraightening the top of the nasal bridge or making the nose fall in onestraight line may entail some bone restructuring.

Tummy Tuck

Usually requested for the purposeof removing stretch marks (abdominal striae) from previous pregnancies,  Tummy tuck or Abdominoplasty is not simplyexcising the skin and fat from the level of just above the navel to about 5cmto 7cm above the pubic bone; then pulling down the skin above the navel andstitching it down to the wound edge above the pubic bone.  There is more to it because the muscles infront of your belly, which were weakened by those pregnancies, are broughttogether  in the middle and are stitchedtogether to bring about a strong, flat abdominal wall (sort of an internalcorsette).   In the process, the waist is pulled towardsthe middle and gives you a curve at the flanks of your abdomen. If your skinappears thick and the effects of tummy tuck may not be very obvious, aliposuction procedure can be combined with the tummy tuck to sculpture yourabdominal wall and give you a sexier definition at the level of the belly.

In some cases, abdominoplasty ispart of a procedure called Belt Lipectomy, which is usually done in patientswho have had massive weight loss and whose skin sags not only from the frontbut all around the waist like a deflated tire.

Dermal Fillers

As the title implies, the materialis used to “fill-in” pock marks, furrows, folds and wrinkles on your face, toelevate these pock marks, furrows, folds and wrinkles and level then with thesurrounding skin and tissues to make the skin look smooth and even.  The material used is Hyaluronic acid – asynthetic material of the naturally organic component of collagen – thebuilding blocks of tissues and their repair.

At present the filler hasexpanded in its potential use and has been transformed to giving volume tocertain areas in the face which naturally becomes depleted of cells and tissuecomponents as we age – to attain the “fullness” of the face that we had in ouryouth.  Hyaluronic acid fillers can alsobe used to temporarily augment your nose, your lips, your cheeks and chin.

Fillers usually lasts anywherefrom eight months to a year.

Hair Transplant
Full head of hair – the crowning glory of men!. - that is why when hair on top of the head is thinning or becoming scarce, men get worried. As the hair on the top of their head thins out or goes, so does their self-esteem; which they feel slowly ebb away. If you are looking for a permanent solution to this problem, hair transplant is the answer. Hair coming from the back and from the sides of the head becomes the donor areas for this procedure. Hairs from these donor areas are usually resistant to or are not affected by the male pattern baldness and once they are transplanted to the “crown” of the head, they retain their characteristic resistance to male pattern baldness. There are two ways harvesting the hair and its roots from these donor areas. One is by cutting out a strip of scalp from which hair follicles is individually or/in pairs are cut away before being transplanted to balding areas. The other way is by using a machine which extracts the hair follicle either singly or in pairs, directly from the scalp, without necessarily cutting away scalp and stitching the two edges back together to close the wound defect.
