+ EYELID LIFT (BLEPHAROPLASTY)

While excess eyelid skin may contribute to a baggy appearance, loss of elasticity of the support structures within the eyelid also can lead to fat bulge. This can cause functional problems due to obstruction of vision or a feeling of heaviness.

Surgery to the upper eyelids may address these functional problems with the benefit of giving the face a well-rested appearance. However, not all cases of “heavy eyelids” can be addressed by a blepharoplasty procedure. The problem may not even be your eyelids, and you may require an eyebrow lift instead.

An upper eyelid lift is not always a “cosmetic” procedure. You will need to have a visual field test completed by your Optometrist or Opthalmologist to demonstrate a visual field loss for this procedure to be considered “non-cosmetic”.

+ EAR CORRECTION (OTOPLASTY)

Otoplasty is surgery to correct prominent ears. This usually occurs due to a lack of sufficient folding of the cartilage that supports the ear. The incisions are usually behind the ear to access the cartilage, which then can be reshaped to give the desired effect.

Sometimes a small amount of cartilage is removed. Bulky bandages are required for about a week after surgery, but these are soon replaced by a headband that is only worn at night (for six weeks).

+ TUMMY TUCK (ABDOMINOPLASTY)

Significant weight loss often results in excess abdominal skin. The abdominoplasty, or “tummy tuck” procedure involves removal of excess skin and fat, possibly with repositioning of the umbilicus (belly button) and repairing the weakened, separated underlying muscles.

This cannot be achieved without scars, but these are usually located in a position that can be covered by underwear or swimwear.

Occasionally liposuction may also be used to improve the overall outcome.

+ LIPOSUCTION

Liposuction is useful in the treatment of localised fat deposits that don’t respond to a good diet and exercise. It can improve body contours with minimal scarring, and is often used as part of breast reduction and abdominoplasty procedures.

The procedure involves detailed pre-operative mapping followed by injection of the treatment area with fluid. The fluid improves the ability to remove fat using a small, hollow metal tube attached to a suction device.

Compression garments are required for approximately a month after the procedure.

+ BRACHIOPLASTY

Brachioplasty (also known as an Arm Lift) is a procedure to improve the contour of the upper arms. It involves the removal of excess skin from the inner part of the upper arms and therefore will always have scars. The risks and benefits of the procedure as well as the expected outcome will be discussed with you before surgery.
