Breast augmentation

Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure to increase the size and/or alter the shape of
a woman's breasts through the use of an artificial implant.
It is usually done to balance a difference in breast size, to improve body contour, or as
a reconstructive technique following surgery.

Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)

In considering improvement of the shape of the abdomen, each layer of the abdominal
wall affected has to be considered. There are three relevant layers, the skin, the fatty
tissue and the underlying muscle. The skin can be stretched with pregnancy, the fatty
layer can increase with weight gain and the muscle layer may also be stretched or
weakened with pregnancy and surgery.

Foreheadplasty (Brow Lift)

The forehead-eyebrow area is probably the most important single feature in facial
expression. When the brow is contracted and depressed medially, an angry threatening
look results. When the lateral brow is depressed and fullness ensues in the upper eyelid,
the eyes develop a tired, sad expression.

Foreheadplasty is the appropriate treatment for eyebrow descent. Only when the eyebrows have been restored to the appropriate position can a decision be made about the amount
of excess skin in the upper lid and the need for blepharoplasty.

Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)

The eyes are the first facial feature people observe and unfortunately they are also
one of the first to show the signs of ageing. Ageing is an irreversible, relentless process
of tissue degeneration resulting in loss of elasticity and stretching of skin

Whilst the eyes themselves are expressionless, the eyelids are very important indicators
of our emotions. When heavy and baggy they portray a tired look; if hooded with loose
skin, an aged look; if elongated and almond shaped with a smooth contour, a fresh
youthful look.
