Blepharoplasty Surgery

Blepharoplasty surgery

Blepharoplasty surgery is the term used to describe the cosmetic surgery of the eyelids by a blepharoplasty doctor. It promotes a more younger look by “waking up” the sagging skin around the eyes. This Cosmetic surgery removes or lowers the extra fat and skin from one of the eyelids or both if needed. Drooping eyelids and puffy bags under the eyes can be correcting by this kind of cosmetic surgery. Blepharoplasty will not remove dark circles or crow’s feet.

Most of the time, the cosmetic surgery procedure requires the incisions to be made in the crease of your upper eyelids and then along the lash line of the lower eyelid. After separating the skin from the fat and muscle underneath, the surgeon will remove the unnecessary fat and, if necessary, excess skin as well. If the only thing you need is the fat to be removed from the lower lids, and have a fairly young, resilient skin, then a the surgery you need is transconjunctival blepharoplasty (the incision here is made inside the lower eyelid). A great source of information on what you need to consider and the risks involved before undergoing blepharoplasty surgery is SG Proeyelid.

After cosmetic surgery on your eyelids, it will take two or three days before you can read or watch TV, and you may be sensitive to light for several weeks. It is possible that you may have to go 24 hours or more not being able to see at all, until your bandages are removed. If you cannot cope with that idea, you may need to undergo the more time-consuming and expensive procedure of having each eye done at a different time.

Your surgeon can tell you if your drooping upper eye appearance is a result of dropped eyebrows. This cannot be repaired by cosmetic surgery on your eyelids; instead, a brow lift may be needed, which will raise your eyebrows while removing creases from your forehead.

Tips for Slimmer Face: My Experience

tips for slimmer face

If you’re looking for tips for slimmer face then I’m glad you found this website so that I can share with you my story of how I got my face slimmer after all. The ups, the downs, what stuff didn’t work and finally the one thing that helped me achieve my personal goal of getting a slimmer face. I know what it’s like to feel self conscious about the way you look. Click here to find out how I got a slimmer face.

I am not a hugely overweight person but my fat face had been a big problem for most of my adult life. I was so self conscious that I couldn’t stand looking in mirrors, I felt ashamed when people looked at me and would never have my photo taken. It was such a serious problem that I became very reclusive – it was a very sad and lonely way to live. I was so desperate that I even considered taking out a loan for plastic surgery, but thank goodness a good friend talked me out of that.  But I did get to the point where I was so sick and tired of feeling self-conscious, unattractive and ultimately pretty miserable that I knew I had to do something about it – and wow am I glad I did.

Of course I tried all the tips for slimmer face – make up tips, how to do make up and face slimming tips that promised to slim your face by “drawing attention to your eyes, lips and cheekbones” and so on. That did give me a temporary boost, until I realised all I was actually doing was plastering on thick make up – which wasn’t really my style – it took a lot of time and was quite expensive to keep up. A great help to me was Missy Sharon T’s blog with many tips about face slimming and other great advice overall on how to achieve your goals and even some treatment reviews.

We have all read that it is good to drink lots of water to wash away the toxins which can cause swelling and bloating, so I started upping my water intake.  After weeks of drinking gallons of water every day my face looked as fat as ever –all I achieved was I had to go to the toilet twice an hour! I tried staying away from alcohol and salt because that can cause fluid retention – have you ever tried that? Everything has salt in it and alcohol was my only solace – either way nothing much changed. I still didn’t know how to make my face slimmer and I was feeling more desperate than ever.

Then one day a friend hit me with the truth – if you are slimmer then your face will look slimmer. I simply needed to lose weight. If you lose weight, every part of your body will look slimmer, including your face! It took me a while but eventually I stumbled across a great healthy eating plan The Diet Solution – I couldn’t believe how well it worked! I lost 10 lbs in the first two weeks – click here to find out more about the Diet Solution.  The Diet Solution is all about eating the right kind of fat burning foods rather than eating less. At first I found it a bit tricky adjusting my shopping list – but I soon got the hang of it. It turned out to be really simple because I didn’t have to starve myself, just choose foods that accelerate fat burning – so not only did I lose weight and lose my fat face but I also felt healthier.

So now I am no longer self conscious about how my face looks and I can get on with my life without obsessing. I am so much happier – I am in a long term relationship, my job is going well and I have saved a fortune in make up. I hope you have found my story helpful and tips for slimmer face a useful blog – please post your comments and let me know if you are successful in losing weight and slimming your face.

 

Non-surgical and Permanent Nose Jobs

Plastic surgery experts long ago concluded that a first rhinoplasty is mishandled in about 20 percent of cases, leaving patients still unhappy about the look of their noses. It’s not so much a case of fumble-thumb doctors, but a very, very difficult procedure –rhinoplasty — that takes, even in the best of hands, years to understand and even longer to master. Usually, an unsatisfying result causes once-burned patients to become research experts searching for a more experienced cosmetic plastic surgeon or even perhaps one who is a nose job “superspecialist”.

Here’s the surgical low-down on nose job re-dos:

Typically, a first rhinoplasty has resulted in grooves, moguls and depressions on the outside of the nose, visible to all who can see. Most times, too much bone and cartilage have been taken from the nose. What has happened? The very deft touch and extensive knowledge of nasal anatomy required for taking out just the right amount of nose tissue has not quite settled in on the first surgeon. Not only must that first cosmetic surgeon have a feel for the “right amount” of tissue to remove, he or she must see through the complete healing of dozens — if not hundreds — of such noses. But the patient only cares that the first nose job left the nose looking pinched or too scooped out. Ah, but what to do?

A second, or revision, surgery means:

  • More time away from the job and family
  • Another expensive procedure
  • Yet more downtime for healing
  • Other inconveniences including some post-op discomfort

But there is another way: nose filler injections.  One particular patient was a case in point. Previously, she had multiple surgeries on her nose to correct the damage done on her first rhinoplasty. She was really down in the mouth about having yet another surgery but was extremely unhappy with her nose’s look. But when learned of another way to achieve a permanent revision without surgery, she became so overwhelmed by relief, she shed tears of joy in the consultation room.

How are the changes affected with only syringes?

Droplets of liquid silicone, injected just under the skin of the nose with ultra-fine needles – about the width of four human hairs – can work magic for repairing nose irregularities. More good news: no need to hide afterwards. The injection procedure involves no bruising, swelling or facial discoloration. After the injections, you go back to whatever you were doing before the appointment.  Many patients have not heard to using silicone droplets to repair bad places on the nose.

Consider:

  • Silicone in breast implants have been proven to be safe
  • Silicone drops are FDA cleared for use inside the eye, an even more critical and delicate area
  • Solid silicone is used for FDA-cleared artificial joints and heart valves
  • Just about everybody has been exposed to liquid silicone

Hypodermic needles used to take blood samples or give other injections are coated with silicone drops to make puncturing the skin easier and less painful. Cosmetic plastic surgeons are allowed to use the drops under a concept known as “off-label”. That means a device or substance – silicone drops in this case – is used for a purpose not intended by the manufacturer.

But in the physician’s best judgement, it’s the best choice because it has worked well for his other patients. Additionally, it does not take much to get great results. About 25 percent of a teaspoon does the job. Other popular fillers – like Restylane, Juvederm and collagen — only last six months, after which they are absorbed by the body. A good place to read about the non-surgical nose job procedures is Singapore Beauty Secrets. The non-surgical nose job with filler injection is temporary, those injections need to be repeated. But silicone drops are permanent. 

Nonetheless, most revision rhinoplasty patients are only offered additional, expensive complex surgical session in the operating room. Nonetheless, the final results of yet more bone or cartilage tissue grafts are unpredictable at best. But some cases cannot avoid surgery. The nose’s chief job is breathing; if a nasal blockage prevents the normal passage of air, there’s no choice except surgery. Some patients find the concept of the injection treatment hard to swallow, even when shown before and after rhinoplasty revision pictures.

So they are offered a test drive. The patient is given:

  • A mirror
  • An injection of sterile, salt water into the dents, moguls and other nose defects

While the salt water dissipates in an hour, the saline does its job and briefly creates a more pleasing nasal appearance. Before and after pictures are taken during the test drive and e-mailed to the patient so it can be mulled over with the family.

You won’t find many rhinoplasty revision doctors offering revision rhinoplasty via silicone drops. But if you do, be sure and ask:

  • How long have you performed this technique?
  • May I see one of your patients who had a similar problem fixed by liquid silicone?
  • Do you still have before and after pictures of salt water “test drives”?
