Double Eyelid Surgery
Double eyelid surgery, which is also known as Blepharoplasty, is the most common plastic surgery procedure in Asia, most especially Singapore. This procedure will create an eyelid crease in an individual who does not have a crease (single eyelid), or has an indistinct crease. The presence of the double eyelid, or upper eyelid crease, helps to uncover part of the natural eye contour. This gives more beauty to the eyes, and makes the eyes look slightly bigger, rounder and exposes more of the eyelashes.
Liposuction is a common plastic surgery procedure that helps to remove or reduce fat in the body. The most common areas of the body that house more fats include the thighs, buttocks, abdomen, and arms. Fats here may not be removed or reduced in a timely manner when subjected to normal traditional routine exercise except liposuction. The major purpose of liposuction is to reshape the affected part of the body, and not to reduce the body weight. Liposuction is typically a last resolute on the areas that have not responded well to routine exercise and dieting. If you’re overweight, you’re likely to lose more weight through diet and exercise or through bariatric procedures — such as gastric bypass surgery — than you would with liposuction. In our modern work lifestyle where people hardly have time to exercise as a result of tight schedule, advanced technology, and luxury life, liposuction is the best and fast way of removing unwanted fats in the body.
Breast Augmentation Surgery
Breast augmentation is one of the most popular and frequently performed aesthetic surgery procedures common amongst women in Singapore. It has a long and successful track record in satisfying the desires of women who wish to enhance, regain and restore balance to their figures. Breast augmentation surgery restores and increases breast size using saline implants, silicone gel implants, or in some cases, fat transfer. Breast implants are usually placed under the breast tissues or chest muscles during the process of breast augmentation. The reasons a woman decides to go for breast augmentation is strictly personal and always differs amongst women. For some women, breast augmentation is a way of enhancing and improving their self-image and self-confidence. While for others, it is part of breast reconstruction after undertaking a surgery for breast cancer or other conditions that have effects on the breast.
Dermal fillers are another most common cosmetic treatment in Singapore. They are used in facial treatment. They help to diminish facial lines and restore volume and fullness in different parts of the face. They are also used to smoothen wrinkles and pitted scars, and also to add volume to areas such as the lips and nose. Dermal fillers are of different and unique brands. Some of the most common brands are Juvederm, Radiesse, Perlane, and Restylane.
Thermage is another non-invasive treatment popular in Singapore. It has proven to help contour, tighten, and smooth the skin for a fresher look without necessarily needing any invasive surgery. It makes use of radio frequency technology which renews the collagen in any sagging or loosed skin. The radiofrequency energy used by thermage creates a uniform heating effect in the deep dermis. This steady heating tightens existing collagen and stimulates the production of new collagen. It also reduces wrinkles and achieves brow lifting, jaw line lifting, and cheek lifting. The skin tissue tightening and lifting is caused by an instant collagen contraction which is then followed by gradual collagen tightening.
Rhinoplasty is another common cosmetic procedure in Singapore, which aims at changing the shape of the nose. Rhinoplasty can alter the shape of the nose to either becoming bigger or smaller, change the tip of the nose, change the shape of the nose, and even the angle of the nose in respect to the face. In case of any preceding defect, this nose surgery can help to repair the function of the nose. This means that any health defects in the nose like breathing issues may give way after the surgery. During Rhinoplasty, the plastic surgeon makes incisions to access the bones and cartilage that support the nose. To prevent scarring, the incisions are usually made inside the nose via the nostrils so that they are not visible after the surgery. Depending on the desired result, some bone and cartilage may be removed, and additional bodily tissue may be added in stead – either using a synthetic filler or taken from another part of the body. After the surgeon has rearranged and reshaped the bone and cartilage inside the nose, the skin and tissue is covered back over the structure of the nose. A splint is then used to support the new shape of the nose as it heals.
