    Cosmetic Surgery
    See Also "Plastic Surgery"

    Cosmetic surgery is a branch of surgery that deals with problems of appearance that develop during life and which make people feel self-conscious. If you have a problem of appearance that distresses or irritates you, an operation can be done to put it right. There are many different cosmetic surgery operations that can help with changing your appearance, some of which are mentioned below. There are many other problems of appearance not mentioned, which can be treated.

    Please note that laser treatment may not be available at all hospitals. Please enquire for further details.

    Blepharoplasty (Bags)
    The effects of ageing are most apparent around the eyes. Excess loose skin and/or fat accumulate in the upper and lower eyelids; "bags", as they are commonly known can result.

    Rhinoplasty
    Rhinoplasty is a branch of cosmetic surgery which reshapes the nose. Treatment may be carried out to improve a patient's appearance, or when combined with other procedures, to relieve nasal blockage, snoring and other breathing related problems. Depending upon the treatment it may be carried out under local or general anaesthetic.

    Breast Reshaping or Augmentation
    There are many natural factors that affect the size and shape of a woman's breasts, including inherited characteristics, pregnancy and the ageing process.

    Breasts can be made larger by a procedure called "Augmentation Mammoplasty". This involves soft implants being surgically inserted behind the body tissue to give each breast a fuller, more rounded look.

    Breasts can also be made smaller. The weight of excessively large breasts can create a range of problems including skin irritation, back and neck pain, breathing difficulties and uncomfortable shoulder indents caused by bra strap pressure. They can also be the cause of distressing embarrassment and poorly fitting clothes. "Reduction Mammoplasty" is the procedure by which tissue and skin is removed and the nipple repositioned.

    Breasts can be lifted by "Mastoplexy", which is a procedure suitable for women who are content with the size of their breasts, but want to reduce the loose sagging skin.

    Facial Aesthetics
    A face-lift or "Rhytidectomy" involves making incisions behind the hairline and hidden within the creases of the ears. Excess fatty deposits are removed and loose muscles tightened. The slack in the skin itself is then taken up, and the excess removed. As a result, the sagging skin on your face and neck is reduced.

    "Genioplasty" changes the shape of the chin.

    "Bat ear correction" repositions ears that are too prominent.

    "Maxillary Osteotomy" reshapes the bones in the top half of the face.

    "Mandibular Osteotomy" reshapes the jawline.

    "Malar Augmentation" redefines cheekbones.

    "Dermabration" refinishes the skin to remove scars, discoloration and wrinkles.

    Removal of Skin Blemishes
    Many skin blemishes respond well to laser treatment, from large purple "Port Wine Stains" to small clusters of red thread veins just below the skin. A laser is directed at the affected area, and the beam is made up of yellow light, which is not absorbed by the healthy skin, but only by the darker blood vessels causing the blemish. These break down, and are dealt with by the body's own defence mechanisms, through a series of natural processes.

    Laser surgery is particularly effective in the removal of blemishes in children and babies, whose skin is especially responsive to the treatment.

    Body Fat Removal through Liposculpture
    Liposculpture or "suction lipectomy" is a procedure that can treat fatty deposits that occur in certain areas of the body, on both men and women alike. One or more incisions are made (no more than half an inch long) and a surgical tube known as a cannula is inserted. Through this tube the fatty deposits are broken down and removed through suction.
