Botox® is a popular and widely accepted non-surgical toxin injection (a dilute form of botulism) which is injected into the facial muscles. The effects of Botox temporarily reduce frown lines, forehead creases, crow’s feet near the eyes and thick bands in the neck. The toxin blocks the nerve impulses, temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause wrinkles while giving the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance. Studies have also suggested that Botox works effectively in relieving migraines, excessive sweating and muscle spasms in the neck and eyes.

Breast augmentation, is a surgical procedure to enhance the size and shape of a woman's breast
This may be done for many reasons:
• To enhance the size and shape of the breast of a woman who feels her breast size is too small.
• To correct breast size after pregnancy.
• As a reconstructive technique following breast surgery.
By inserting an implant behind each breast, surgeons are able to increase a woman's bustline by one or more bra cup sizes.
Breast implants are used to make your breasts larger, firmer and fuller. Breast implants are available in a variety of shapes, types and sizes and are usually made of an outer layer of silicone, filled with either silicone gel or salt water (saline). One can see different types of breast implants and discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each with our highly qualified surgeons before you decide which one is best for you
Matters to discuss with your surgeon:
• Breast Implant shape: round or teardrop
• Breast Implant surface: smooth or textured
• Breast Implant size and volume: cup size/210 ml-500 ml
• Breast Implant placement: above or below the muscle
• Breast Implant Incision site: armpit, areola, breast or belly button
• Am I a suitable candidate for breast augmentation?

Breast Lift - Mastopexy
Over time, factors such as pregnancy, breast-feeding, weight loss and gravity take their toll on a woman's breasts, affecting their shape and firmness. Breast lift, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure to raise and reshape sagging breasts albeit, temporarily. Mastopexy can also change the size of the areola, the darker skin surrounding the nipple. If your breasts are small implants inserted in conjunction with mastopexy can enhance both their firmness and their size.
In most instances, mastopexy is performed under general anesthesia as an outpatient procedure, and lasts a few hours. For some women, breast lift can be performed under local anesthesia, while others, especially those with larger breasts that require more extensive surgery, require inpatient surgery with a hospital stay of one or two days. There are three basic techniques used for breast lift surgery: concentric mastopexy, vertical mastopexy, and anchor-shaped mastopexy.
Recovery / Post Op Expectations
After surgery patients are wrapped with gauze and elastic bandages or a surgical bra. Bruising, swelling, pain, and discomfort will be experienced for the first few days, but medication will be prescribed to help lessen the effects. Loss of sensation in the nipple and breast tissue is common, but usually returns as nerves begin to regenerate. Heavy lifting, excessive physical exertion, raising or lifting hands above your head, and sex should be avoided for at least a week or more, and patients should expect to be absent from work for approximately the same time.
Brow lift (forehead lift) is a plastic surgery procedure which will raise your eyebrows to a higher and more aesthetic position. It will also improve lateral hoods (which are the droopy flaps of skin that hang over the outside corner of your eyes. Plastic surgery of your forehead will also soften your horizontal forehead wrinkles and the scowl lines between your eyebrows.
As with any elective surgery, realistic expectations are important. When a surgeon tightens loose skin and removes the excess, forehead wrinkling and drooping brows are modified. The procedure is called a forehead lift or brow lift. If necessary, the surgeon removes part of the muscle that causes vertical frown lines between the brows. The result can be a smoother brow and a more youthful expression. To see what a forehead lift can do for your face, put your hands above your brows and outside the edges of your eyes and gently raise the skin upwards. Forehead lifts are an option if you have a sagging brow or deep furrows between the eyes. This procedure is usually done between age forty and sixty-five, although it may be necessary at an earlier age.
A brow lift is often performed in conjunction with a facelift to provide a smoother overall look to the face. Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) may also be performed concurrently especially if a patient has significant skin overhang in the upper eyelids. Sometimes, patients who believe they need upper-eyelid surgery find that a forehead lift better meets their surgical goals.
Patients who are bald, who have a receding hairline, or who have had previous upper-eyelid surgery may still be good candidates for forehead lift. The surgeon will simply alter the incision location or perform a more conservative operation.
Remember, a forehead lift can enhance your appearance and your self-confidence, but it won't necessarily change your looks to match your ideal or cause other people to treat you differently. You have to remember to have realistic expectations.
Our experienced and competent surgeons will give you details on how to prepare for the surgery. There may be restrictions and guidelines on eating, drinking, smoking, and taking medications before the operation. It's usually a good idea to grow out some hair to help conceal the scars as they heal.
Patients receiving the traditional brow lift will experience numbness and slight pain around the entiresite of the incision. Prescription drugs may be necessary to keep the discomfort level down. Swelling may be a significant problem which would subside within a few weeks. Some patients notice an itching sensation as the swelling and numbness go away. This is a normal reaction as the nerves in the scalp heal. Hair loss and thinning can occur around the incision but return to normal in a month or so.
The results are immediately visible and will last up to ten years

As we grow older, the accumulated effects of environmental elements damage our skin, making us look older than we actually are. Such skin damage can be treated with a chemical peel, a non-invasive procedure designed to promote cell growth and produce smoother, clearer skin.
Chemical peels are also used to treat melasma -a skin ailment characterized by irregularly shaped patches of brown skin commonly found on the face and neck. Chemical peels can be performed on the face, neck, chest, arms, hands, and legs.
What is Chemical Peeling? Chemical peeling involves an application of a chemical solution to environmentally damaged, unevenly pigmented, and finely wrinkled facial areas. The procedure is meant to diminish imperfections by peeling away the skin’s top layers. It has proven to be a very popular nonsurgical cosmetic procedure. Chemical peels would vary according to their specific ingredients. Depth of peeling action may also depend on factors such as sensitivity of the skin, how long solutions remain on the skin and the pressure with which they are applied.
What is the procedure?
The surgeon will select the chemical mix best suited for each individual patient. A solution is applied—using a sponge or brush—to the areas to be treated. In most cases, the most superficial peels are those using alpha hydroxy acids (AHA), such as glycolic, lactic or fruit acid. Various concentrations of an AHA may be applied weekly or at longer intervals to obtain the best result. Compared to AHA’s, a trichloroacetic acid (TCA) peel is stronger, and has a greater depth of peel.
What is the recovery period? After a chemical peel, most people experience some facial swelling and reddening. This is to be expected and, depending over the type of peel used, will diminish over a period of time.
Light peels: Alphahydroxy acids (AHAs): Some flaking, redness and dryness of skin will be felt. Over a period of time, natural healing will remove the outer layer of skin. Normal activity can be resumed one day after the peel procedure.
Medium peels: Trichloroacetic acids (TCA) In the case of TCA peels, the swelling and is significantly higher than that of light peels. Normal activity can be resumed within 10 days of the peel procedure
Deep peels: Phenol acid After a Phenol peel, your doctor may prescribe a mild pain medication to relieve any discomfort. The skin will be red at first but the color will lighten over a few weeks to a few months
Sun block is strongly recommended, especially with TCA treatment. Skin pores may appear larger, and the skin may not tan evenly following a chemical peel.
Will I feel pain?
Most people feel a brief burning sensation during the procedure. The pain will vary depending on the level of sensitivity of the skin, the type of peel used as well as pain medications used. The BHA, AHA and TCA peels cause discomfort only during the application. The phenol peel may give discomfort to some after the procedure too.
Possible complications associated with chemical peels: Possible complications associated with chemical peels may include but are not limited to the following:
Chemical peels can cause scarring which can usually be treated effectively.
• change in skin color
For some people with extremely sensitive skin types, there is a risk of developing a temporary or permanent skin color change. Birth control pills, pregnancy or having a family history of brownish discoloration on the face are other factors which may increase the probabilities of developing abnormal pigmentation.
• cold sores and fever blisters
Those who are prone to cold sores, or herpes simplex infections, may have a reactivation of sores or blisters following a chemical peel.
Chin Surgery, also known as Genioplasty or Mentoplasty is a procedure which aims to correct a chin which is small, weak, recessed, jutting, vertically long or otherwise asymmetric. The consulting surgeon may sometimes recommend cervicoplasty (neck alteration) or a procedure of the nose known as Rhinoplasty to maintain the over all aesthetic look of your face.
The procedure is normally an outpatient one which can be carried out under intravenous sedation or GA. Incisions are placed beneath the chin for implants or inside the mouth for bone surgery. The implants are of various types of metal. Chin reduction normally necessitates reshaping of the jaw bone
You are normally asked to keep your head elevated, post surgery. Much of the swelling and discoloration disappears within a week in most cases.
You can be up and about within 24 to 48 hours, but heavy work is not recommended for 4 to 8 weeks post surgery
The face is the mirror to the soul and in many ways affects the way we react to situations, as well as the way people interact with us. Over age, facial muscles slacken, making the skin around the face and neck loose and saggy, giving an unbecoming look. What nature has done can be reversed by the plastic surgeon by ‘stretching’ skin around the face and neck, giving you a younger and more confident look.
Face lifts come in a variety of flavors, but all of them pick up the slack in your face's skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkling. Face lifts can be done surgically, non-surgically and even through natural techniques. The traditional plastic surgery face lift is a medical procedure necessitating the use of local anesthetic and a scalpel. Incisions are made near the ear to allow the skin and underlying tissue to be reconstructed for firmer, more youthful-looking skin. This is a one-time procedure that can dramatically change the way you look. Usually a surgical technique is best for someone who has obvious signs of aging (slack, underlying layers of skin)
Some non-surgical techniques have evolved in the recent past to provide an alternative to surgery. Gadgets like radio frequency emitters, lasers, and topical creams can all tighten the skin on your face without the need for incisions and tissue reconstruction. These methods have fewer complications, but also reduced results and are best suited for younger people who have shown the initial signs of aging.

Gynecomastia is a male affliction which when literally translated means ‘women-like breasts’. It is not an uncommon ailment, affecting about 40 to 50 percent of men For men who are self conscious of the over development of their breasts, help is at hand by means of breast reduction surgery.
Gynecomastia can be caused due to many factors such as imbibing anabolic steroids (especially body builders), heredity, obesity etc. Persons who consume excessive alcohol or marijuana are dissuaded from undertaking surgery and are encouraged to try and lose weight by means of exercise before deciding on a course of surgery.
Gynecomastia can appear in two forms, genuine or 'real' and similar or 'pseudo.' In real Gynecomastia there is actual breast tissue present. In pseudo Gynecomastia there is no such breast tissue and the appearance is due to an accumulation of fat, part of a general overweight tendency. In this condition weight control and exercise reduce the problem.
If excess glandular tissue is the primary cause of the breast enlargement, it will be excised with a scalpel. This may be done as a stand alone procedure, but at times, in conjunction with liposuction. In a regular procedure, an incision is made either on the edge of the areola or in the under arm area. Through this incision, the surgeon cuts away the excess glandular tissue, fat and skin from around the areola and from the sides and bottom of the breast. When liposuction is used to remove excess fat, the cannula is usually inserted through the existing incisions.
In very rare cases, where large amounts of fat or glandular tissue have been removed, the overlying skin may not adjust well to the new smaller breast contour. In these cases, excess skin may have to be removed to allow the removing skin to firmly re-adjust to the new breast shape and size.
