Blepharoplasty Patient Information

Blepharoplasty is surgery of the eyelids. This operation allows your surgeon to adjust excess skin, reduce fat bags or correct any hollow areas in the orbital region. The eyelids usually heal very rapidly with good quality and barely perceptible scars. Your eyes are the focus point of your face, and therefore small adjustments in this area have a great impact in correcting the ‘tired look’ and rejuvenating the face.

Nasal surgery, nose reshaping, nose job

Nose surgery or Aesthetic Rhinoplasty is an operation to improve the proportions of the nose and to balance the face. The nose is reshaped by adjusting the skin, cartilage and bone while attending to and correcting any deformity or functional concerns. I select the best technique or combination of methods to arrive at the desired result. This may be achieved by opening the nose, or by using the closed technique and utilising grafts of cartilage and internal stitches. Minor corrections are possible with injectable fillers or suture techniques.

Facelift - Rhytidectomy

There are many features of facial aging and a successful facelift requires correction of many of these components. These are:

  • Loss of facial fullness and tone
  • Thinning and drooping of skin
  • Sagging of fat pads and change in facial contour such as jowls and double chin
  • Deepening of skin folds around the sides of the nose and mouth
  • Sun and environmental damage result in blemishes, loss of skin elasticity, lines and wrinkles
  • Repeated muscular actions cause folding of the skin such as frown and forehead lines.
