Common procedures for women.

Abdominoplasty for women

After massive weight loss, pregnancy or just the trials of life, excess abdominal skin is often successfully addressed with contouring surgery specifically abdominoplasty. Various techniques including mini-abdominoplasty, high lateral tension, high medial tension and extended abdominoplasty all have their place and are tailored to the patient’s needs. Many women seeking abdominoplasty may be interested in breast lift or liposuction and occasionally combined procedures are planned. more...

Malignant melanoma is staged by its Breslow thickness and Clarke level allowing surgical treatment to be tailored to the particular tumour. Excisional biopsy is often followed by wide local excision with or without sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB). The sentinel lymph node may provide information about possible spread. CT scans, PET scans, radiotherapy, oncolocy and melanoma clinic review are all needed at times. Advanced disease may require lymphadenectomy, axillary dissection, neck dissection or groin dissection. more...

Rhinoplasty for women

Wrinkle Treatments
Wrinkle Treatments

Treatment with botulinum toxin, Botox or Dysport, aims to address the problem of dynamic lines or rhytids. These are caused by undesirable contraction of the facial muscles which are effectively paralysed by the injectible toxin. Crows feet, frown lines and platysmal bands may be suitable for treatment. Fillers like the hyalurinic acid based products Restylane, perlane, and subQ, aim to restore or add volume to the lips, cheeks, cheek bones, malar areas or other sites. Injections last several months or up to a year and may be repeated if required. Hyperhydrosis is also well addressed with botulinum toxin. more...
