Procedures
Breast Augmentation

The idea of youthfulness for women has been fairly associated with how well structured their breasts are. But with time and because of several other reasons, the breasts may start drooping. This may diminish physical appeal and self-confidence.

There are many women in the fashion and entertainment industry who often go for breast augmentation surgery or mammoplasty to enhance their appearance. Many other women who feel low due to small breast size or drooping breasts undergo breast augmentation to feel better.

Women with bigger breasts, on the other hand, may decide to undergo a breast reduction. Breast reduction is also known as reduction mammoplasty.

Some of the reasons why a woman may decide to undergo breast augmentation include the following:

  • Naturally smaller breast size compared to the body as per age
  • Breasts have grown smaller or have drooped after childbirth and breastfeeding
  • Due to rapid weight loss, the breasts have drooped down
  • One breast is significantly smaller compared to the other breast due to a congenital condition or any other kind of trauma.
  • During gender transition

Drooping breasts or small-sized breasts can be a real problem when it comes to wearing clothes. A woman may also feel uncomfortable due to the non-uniformity of the two breasts or may feel heavy at times.

Breast augmentation is the second most popular surgical procedure performed on women in the US.  Silicone implants or many other kinds of gel-filled or saline-filled implants are inserted in the breast pocket to augment their size and make it look fuller and appealing.

Benefits of Breast Augmentation

  • A very simple process that does not require the patients to stay overnight
  • Morbidity and mortality rates are low
  • Enhances the overall beauty and appearance of a woman
  • Improves self-confidence
  • No visible scars left from the incision
Chemical Peel (Skin Refinishing)

A chemical peel is an effective way to satisfy people who are unhappy with the look and feel of their skin. It is a face peeling treatment in which a chemical is applied to the skin, which eventually “peels off” the upper layer of the skin to expose a new, fresh, and smoother layer of the skin.

Face peeling treatment is the most suitable for people who have positive and realistic expectations out of the cosmetic procedure for large pores, wrinkled skin, and scars. However, for a chemical peel to be effective, it is important that the interested candidate does not smoke, or leaves it well before undergoing this procedure.


What conditions of the skin can be treated with a chemical peel?

Chemical peel is a great cosmetic procedure for crow’s feet, acne scars, and wrinkles. Each year, thousands of patients opt chemical peel for dark skin, marks, acne and dark patches.

The following condition of the skin can be effectively treated with the help of face peeling treatment:

  • Mild scars
  • Fine lines around mouth
  • Crow’s feet and other fine lines under the eyes
  • Age Spots
  • Freckles
  • Discoloured skin and dark patches
  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Age-related wrinkles
  • Melasma

A chemical peel process is best suited for people who wish to enhance the look and feel of their skin. A flawless skin is associated with a great boost in self-confidence. People who have lost the charm of their skin because of ageing or damage caused due to acne and sun exposure can look forward to this procedure to regain their youthful looks and clear complexion and to feel confident once again.

Who is the best candidate for a chemical peel?

The  best candidate for a chemical peel is someone who is fair-skinned, light-haired, and in good physical condition. However, that does not mean that chemical peel does not work well for those who have dark colored skin and hair.

People who understand this procedure well and expect smoother skin, improved texture, improve wrinkles, and reduced acne to be the end result of the procedure should opt for it.

Interested candidates should not expect this procedure to treat severe wrinkles, bulges, and sagged skin. There are other more effective cosmetic procedures for the treatment of these conditions and the cosmetologist is the best person to advise a treatment in this case.

Effectiveness of Chemical Peels

Depending on the type of chemical used, a face peeling treatment can chisel away the layers of the skin at great depths or only at superficial levels. Typically, mild scars and wrinkles, fine lines, spots, and freckles are treated with mild chemical peel, while removal of blotches, pre-cancerous growth, and coarse wrinkles may require a more deeper chemical peel.

Chemicals that peel off deeper layers of the skin are also helpful in eliminating any pre-cancerous growths that the patient may be looking forward to removal. However, there are certain aspects that the doctor may take into consideration before conducting deep chemical peel. For example, this treatment is not suitable for heart patients and people who are required to stay out in the sun as a part of their daily routine.

Glycolic peels are quite popular among people who look forward to the treatment of hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, and acne. Glycolic peels consist of glycolic acid and other therapeutic ingredients to treat different conditions related to the skin.

Cosmetic Rhinoplasty

Nose plays a very important role in defining one’s personality. The entire contour of the face changes with a well-defined nose in place. Rhinoplasty is a cosmetic procedure performed on the nose to enhance its appearance. It is also known as rhinoplasty or nose reshaping. The shape and size of the nose can be changed drastically to improve the features of the face.

Rhinoplasty surgery is mainly performed for aesthetic reasons. An accident or too big or too small appearance of the nose can be given a proper shape with the help of rhinoplasty surgery. A nose can get mutilated or crooked due to some injury or accident which can be corrected through a surgery. Minor problems in breathing can also be attended.

People with abrupt or deformed shape of the nose may experience problems in breathing and subsequent problem in talking normally. Rhinoplasty surgery can help provide great relief to such people.

Nose plastic surgery is commonly performed on both men and women. In fact, it ranks third in the list of most commonly performed cosmetic surgeries. The shape of the nose can be altered through rhinoplasty by addition or removal of bones, cartilage, and tissues or by performing grafting.

Dermal Fillers

Ageing individuals always have an urge for youthfulness or rather a more youthful appearance. This has led to an increased demand for treatment to reduce facial lines, wrinkles, frown lines, laugh lines and to plump lips and cheeks. Additionally, people also look forward to changing the appearance of their hands, feet, earlobe, and décolletage (chest, neck, shoulder, and upper breast area).

Many treatments are now available to fulfil the dreams of the people who wish to regain their youthful appearance. One such option involves injecting dermal fillers into the muscles that have changed in appearance due to ageing, sun exposure, or some other reason.

Dermal filler treatment or cosmetic filler treatment involves injecting appropriate material such as soft tissue and wrinkle fillers to help fill in damaged tissue and give a fuller, plump look. It enhances the appearance of the face and gives it a smoother appearance. Sometimes even fat from other parts of the body is used in dermal filler treatment.

Types of Dermal Fillers

Injectable fillers can be either temporary or permanent. Permanent dermal fillers used for damaged tissues are tiny round, smooth, and biocompatible plastic particles that cannot be absorbed by the body, whereas temporary fillers are absorbed by the body.

Temporary dermal or cosmetic fillers include materials such as collagen injections, hyaluronic acid gel, calcium hydroxylapatite, and poly-l-lactic acid. These fillers are used to correct the following areas:

  • Soft tissue defects such as facial wrinkles, folds, cheek
  • Under eye hollowness
  • Thin lips
  • Sagging hands
  • Bony feet
  • Sagging earlobes, temple, and jawline
  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Sunken cheeks
  • Skin depression and indentations on the face, feet, chin, and hands

Hyaluronic acid fillers are popular cosmetic fillers used to correct skin that has lost its elasticity. Under eye, fillers are also popular among medical tourists. Under eye, fillers are used to remove hollowness, bags under the eye, and dark circles.

Hand Microsurgery

Microsurgery of the hand and wrist may be used to treat traumatic injuries such as a severed thumb or finger, severe laceration of a blood vessel, or a severe tendon or nerve injury. The surgery involves the use of specialized operation microscope and precision instrumentation. The procedure is commonly performed for nerve repair, reattachment of a severed finger, tendon repair etc. It is performed by an expert surgeon specializing in microsurgery or microvascular surgery. It is also used in the treatment of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Rheumatoid arthritis, Dupuytren's contracture.
