Can I Combine Breast Enlargement with A Breast Uplift?

*  Stars

Many women that walk through our doors aren’t aware of the full extent of their options when it comes to breast surgeries. You may come in seeking an augmentation to correct pregnancy or age-related sagging when in reality you’d be better suited for an uplift.

How could I look after having cosmetic surgery?

*  Stars

This is a question frequently asked of our surgeons. Any decision to modify your appearance cannot be taken lightly and it is only normal for a patient to want to see the final result before the procedure. To date patients were not provided with a response to this all-important question. However, with Crisalix a new cutting edge 3D imaging system, it is now possible to see yourself before and after cosmetic surgery. 3D Simulation Crisalix is the world’s first web-based using three standard 2D photos for aesthetic procedures, which recreates in 3D the patient’s face or body to further enable accurate pre-visualisations of the final result. Using this technology a patient can see their new face or body in 3D, as opposed to imagining the result using traditional methods, such as photos of other patients that do not represent the patient’s own anatomy. Crisalix’s technology recommended by IPRAS IPRAS, the leading international federation for [...]

Dimple Creation

*  Stars

Dimple creation is not a new idea. Back in 1936 the “Dimple Machine” was invented with a belief that if you caused prolonged pressure in an area then it would result in dimple formation. Dimple machines invented in 1936 - Photo Credit: Modern Mechanix/The Babble What is a Dimple? A Dimple is a small depression in the skin. On the face it is present due to a small gap in the zygomaticus major muscle. When we smile this gap presents as an indentation. Dimples in the cheek give a cute, sweet, feminine appearance and that is why many ladies who do not have dimples in the cheek want one creating. For many years people have tried to make dimples. The above-illustrated “Dimple Machine” was invented with a belief that if you caused prolonged pressure in an area then it [...]

Crisalix 3D Imaging

*  Stars

The use of 3D imaging technology is not a new thing but the way that we can use that technology today is changing. 3D cosmetic surgery simulation technology allows surgeons to capture and upload a 3D image of a patient’s body or head and show them through gradual changes what their proposed procedure will look like so that shape and size can be decided upon before the procedure takes place. How does Crisalix 3D imaging work? Your Sthetix surgeon will scan your body using an iPad with an attached 3D sensor and a few seconds later your full body will appear in 3D on screen. The surgeon can then simulate the surgical procedure and adjust shapes and positioning to give you an accurate representation of the final surgical result on your very own simulated body. Using Crisalix 3D imaging technology our surgeons can simulate a number of procedures including breast [...]

Predictable Ear Correction

*  Stars

The biggest advantage of Earfold ® is its predictability, “what you see is what you get”. The Initial Consultation Your initial consultation enables you to see whether Earfold® is right for you. Your surgeon will explain what Earfold® is, take a full medical history, then examine your ears and assess why they are prominent. It is important that you have realistic expectations and your surgeon will take time to explain whether Earfold® is able to deliver the results you expect. First you will have the opportunity to discuss how you feel about the current position of your ears. Then, by using temporary positioners (Pre-Fold) you get to choose how your ears will look. The use of temporary positioners to decide the final look of the ear is unique to Earfold®, and cannot easily be achieved with standard Otoplasty. There’s a lot to take in, so we recommend drawing up a [...]

An Education On Melanocytic Naevi

How & Why Do Moles Develop? More of us have moles than those that don't, and there are numerous different types of moles; some harmless while some can be very dangerous indeed. Moles form when skin cells don't grow as they should. Instead of growing evenly spread across the skin, sometimes skin cells grown in clusters which causes moles to appear.

Is Summer A Good Time To Get Breast Implants?

*  Stars

The Best Time to Get Breast Implants To put it simply, you can undergo a breast augmentation procedure at any time of year as this will not have an impact on the quality of the results. What really needs to be considered in depth is the recovery period post-treatment. You need to ensure that you plan your breast enlargement around a period when you are certain you can book enough time off work in order to relax and allow time for your breasts to properly heal. In direct relation to the summer months, sunbathing is not recommended during the healing process and a lot of patients do favour treatment around this period as they are more likely to have free time and can relax guilt-free. In general, there is no exact time that is best to seek breast implants; it only comes down to what works best for you. Breast [...]

What Are The Best Breast Implants?

*  Stars

What Are The Best Breast Implants? Different Types Of Breast Implants Breast implants are available in two different types of material: saline and silicone. Both of these options can look and feel natural providing the procedure is of a professional quality, however there are differences between them. The implants have a solid silicone shell and are named in accordance with what they are filled with. Therefore, saline implants are filled with sterile salt-water and silicone implants are filled with Cohesive silicone gel. The saline type have been around longer, although silicone implants are considered safer and more reliable in terms of their natural-looking results and decrease risk of wrinkling and rippling. Due to this, they are usually more expensive but when it comes to cosmetic surgery, you should never forfeit quality over cost. What Happens If A Silicone Breast Implant Ruptures? Regardless of the type of implant you opt for, [...]

How do Hair Transplants work?

FUE and FUT Hair Transplantation methods At Sthetix Clinic, we offer both types of hair transplant: FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) and FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation).

Hair Transplant Overview The popularity of Hair Restoration treatments in recent years While it may seem as though hair restoration treatments are a fairly new cosmetic development, some of them have been around for quite some time. Although new treatments and products are being developed all the time, procedures like the hair transplant have actually been around for much longer.

All You Need To Know About Thermage

*  Stars

What Is Thermage? Thermage is a non-invasive procedure that aims to maintain and slow the ageing process. You may find that this treatment also achieves a tighter skin, renews contours, smooth wrinkles and, most importantly, produces healthier collagen. These aesthetic improvements are achieved with a radiofrequency device that is passed over the face or body, with the tip in contact with the skin’s surface. Controlled radio waves from the device heat the deeper layers of the skin, stimulating new collagen development. Information On Thermage Treatment We use Thermage to combat the signs of premature ageing. Thermage is a non-invasive, non-surgical method of skin tightening and contouring through the use of FDA and CE approved radiofrequency (RF) technology. One of the main effects of ageing is collagen reduction, and so, with this latest technology, heat is delivered deep into the skin in order to powerfully stimulate the tightening of collagen strands [...]

“Mummy Makeover”

*  Stars

Becoming a mum can be one of the most rewarding experiences of a woman’s life; however, pregnancy and breast-feeding often result in unwanted changes in a woman's body, such as changes to the size and shape of breasts, stretch marks, and a sagging tummy that no amount of exercise and dieting seem to fix. I was recently introduced to the term “Mummy Makeover” by one of my patients. The term commonly refers to a combination of surgical procedures such as a tummy tuck, breast lift and augmentation and liposuction that help women restore their post-pregnancy bodies. Considering multiple major surgeries (possibly in one sitting) is a significant undertaking with weeks of downtime and a considerable investment. Needless to say, do your research: Check out a number of surgeons. I recommend you initially use information available on the internet, including reviews, to research 2 or 3 surgeons.

Inverted Nipple Correction

*  Stars

If you suffer from inverted nipples, you may feel that this is a source of embarrassment; it can cause difficulty in breast feeding and/or lead to hygiene problems as the area is difficult to clean. It is probably much more common than you think, affecting around 10% of the population – so you are certainly not alone. The condition can be congenital (i.e. you are born with the problem and it develops further as the breasts begin to grow), or acquired (i.e. after surgery or as a sign of another medical problem). If nipples become inverted over a short period of time (i.e. a few months) and especially associated with a blood stained discharge, you should seek urgent medical attention. Before considering inverted nipple correction surgery, you might want to try the non-surgical treatments such as the Niplette – a suction device which gently stretches the milk ducts over a [...]
