Body Lift For Men

IS THIS PROCEDURE FOR ME?

Extreme weight loss can result in sagging skin and fat deposits in areas such as the mid-section, lower torso and upper legs including the abdomen, waist, inner/outer thighs, buttocks, and/or hips. This procedure will remove the excess skin and fat.

WHAT IS THIS PROCEDURE?

The precise procedure varies with each patient, depending on the body type and desired outcome. Generally, it entails making an incision that follows the upper and/or inner thigh, to the waistline. In more extensive surgeries, the incision goes around the waist and lower back. Adjustments to the buttocks and thighs require an incision at the crease of the buttocks.

Excess skin is removed, followed by the underlying fat deposits. Finally, the skin is pulled taught and sutured into the new configuration.

Liposuction may also be completed in conjunction with a body lift.

WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?

This surgery will remove the sagging skin and fat deposits and give the area a firmer, tighter, more youthful appearance. Patients who have undergone this surgery require plenty of rest and limited movement. The scars resulting from the incisions are permanent but are carefully placed so as to minimize visibility.

Dermal Fillers

IS THIS PROCEDURE FOR ME?
As we age, areas of our face lose volume, in particular the cheek areas. This ‘flattening’ of the upper cheek area, and subsequent sagging of the skin gives the face an aged and often tired appearance. Dermal fillers can restore a youthful fullness. They can also be used to enhance the lip and smooth out wrinkles (although other treatments such as Lip Enhancement and Anti-Wrinkle Injectables offered at Advanced Aesthetics may be more suitable).

WHAT IS THIS PROCEDURE?
The latest dermal fillers are generally composed of absorbable hyaluronic acid (which occurs naturally in the body and decreases with age) of non-animal origin, which attracts water and creates plumpness. Dermal fillers are injected below the skin’s surface to fill in wrinkles, plump up areas such as the lips, and restore fullness and volume to areas such as the cheeks.

WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?
Side effects, such as minor redness and swelling are generally resolved within 24 hours. Results are visible immediately, and generally last around four to 12 months, depending on the filler, the technique and the area that is being injected. The more treatments you have, the longer the results will last.

Eyebrow Lift

IS THIS PROCEDURE FOR ME?
Often the earliest signs of ageing begin with a wrinkled forehead and sagging eyebrows, producing a tired and worried look. This can be the result of heredity as well as ageing. A brow lift will improve the position of the eyelids and the overall appearance of the face. Brow lifts not only raise and reshape the eyebrows, but also tighten the skin on the forehead, removing “frown lines” and vertical lines between the eyebrows.

WHAT IS THIS PROCEDURE?
A direct brow lift is where an incision is made into the skin in the crease of the forehead or into the hairline. The other common procedure is an endoscopic brow lift, which is a less invasive. This is done by inserting a tiny viewing device called an endoscope and with specialised surgical instruments through several small incisions made behind the hairline.

WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?
An eyebrow lift will give you a happier, friendlier and more open look. The procedure raises the eyebrows to a more alert and youthful position and the tightening of the skin on the forehead reduces lines on the brow and the bridge of the nose. Thousands of people undergo successful brow-lift surgery every year and are more than pleased with the results.

Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia)

IS THIS PROCEDURE FOR ME?

Overly large breasts can cause physical and emotional problems for some men. The weight of the breasts can impact on a man’s shoulders, neck, and back, and cause the breasts to sag. The social implications of large breasts can affect a man’s self-esteem, personal relationships and ability to do some physical activities too. A breast reduction, also known as gynecomastia surgery reduces the size of the breast and elevates the breast.

WHAT IS THIS PROCEDURE?
The gynecomastia procedure involves the removal of fat, tissue and skin, and the breasts are reduced in size and reshaped. There are a variety of surgical techniques (occasionally including liposuction); Dr Gahankari will assess your needs at your initial consultation and determine the most appropriate technique. Dr Gahankari uses liposculpturing during the procedure to further enhance the shape. 

WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?

Of all plastic surgery procedures, breast reduction results in the quickest body-image changes. The physical pain caused by large breasts is removed, and a better-proportioned body is the result. Bandages are applied following surgery to aid the healing process and minimise movement of the breasts.

Fat Transfer (Grafting)

IS THIS PROCEDURE FOR ME?
As we age, a reduction in skin hyaluronans, collagen and elastin causes the skin to loose elasticity. Combined with lifestyle factors such as exposure to sun and toxins, the result is often seen in our face through excessive facial wrinkles, deep wrinkles or furrows in your forehead, small wrinkles or crow’s feet around your eyes, or a vertical frown line between your eyebrows. Many people complain that these wrinkles give them an aged or angry appearance. A fat grafting procedure transfers fat from areas in which you have excess fat, such as the outer thighs, and injects it into these areas that may be lacking in volume.

WHAT IS THIS PROCEDURE?
Fat is harvested from one part of your body, washed and purified, and then carefully reinjected with specially designed needles into the areas that need augmentation. It may be necessary to repeat the fat grafting procedure several times to achieve the desired result.

WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?
This safe, long-lasting, well-tolerated procedure produces natural-looking results. The areas to which the fat was transferred will appear softer and fuller, giving you a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance.

Laser Hair Removal

IS THIS PROCEDURE FOR ME?
Excess hair can be distressing for many men. Laser hair removal offers a permanent solution.

WHAT IS THIS PROCEDURE?
Different skin types (lighter skin, darker skin, sensitive skin etc) require different machines. Advanced Aesthetics uses BBL and ND Yag 1064 laser machines for hair removal. Your Advanced Aesthetics nurse can advise you on which machine will achieve your desired hair removal results most effectively.

WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?
No matter which machine you use, you can expect to need between 6 and 10 treatments at four to six weekly intervals. After the treatments, the hair will be removed permanently.

Male Anti Wrinkle Injectables

IS THIS PROCEDURE FOR ME?
As we age, a reduction in skin hyaluronans, collagen and elastin causes the skin to loose elasticity. Combined with lifestyle factors such as exposure to sun and toxins, and repeated facial movements the result is often excessive facial wrinkles, deep wrinkles or furrows in your forehead, small wrinkles or crow’s feet around your eyes, or a vertical frown line between your eyebrows. Many people complain that these wrinkles give them an aged or angry appearance. Anti-wrinkle injectables can reduce or even eliminate these.

WHAT IS THIS PROCEDURE?
In keeping with government regulations we are unable to name specific products used for cosmetic injections. The anti-wrinkle injections we use at Advanced Aesthetics are made up of a naturally occurring toxin that specifically weakens muscles when injected into them. The nerve impulse that initiates muscle contraction is blocked thereby weakening these muscles. A detailed knowledge of the facial muscles and their reaction to anti-wrinkle injection is required to achieve a natural result.

WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?
Injectables are given with the finest available needles for comfort and for reducing bruising. Once facial expression muscles are weakened adequately, appearance of wrinkles and facial lines is significantly reduced. You will notice significant results almost immediately, within one to two days.

WARNING
It is worth noting that there are many clinics and beauty outlets offering anti-wrinkle treatments, often at a discount rate. However, inexperienced or untrained technicians may not have the required skill and knowledge to achieve an acceptable. Often the result is unsatisfactory and not suited to your face. The Advanced Aesthetics team are highly trained and skilled, specialising in these treatments, and can give you a natural, proportioned result.

Tummy Tucks

IS THIS PROCEDURE FOR ME?
For many men, no amount of dieting and exercise can address excess fat or skin in the tummy and waistline area. Unaffectionately known as a ‘spare tyre’, loose skin, fat deposits and lower tummy bulges often develop as we age.

WHAT IS THIS PROCEDURE?
A tummy tuck is the surgical removal of excess skin and fat from the abdomen, and the repositioning of abdomen muscles into a tighter formation.
It involves an incision at the lower abdomen, possibly a second incision at the navel. Liposculpture is used to contour the tummy, and to reduce skin damage and the length of the scar.

WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?
The surgery will result in a flatter, firmly contoured stomach. Normal activities can generally be resumed within two weeks, although a pressure garment must be worn for some weeks to support the repair of the muscles and reduce swelling and bruising. It may take up to a year for the body to completely adapt to the new abdominal configuration. With proper diet and exercise the striking results of the surgery will be long lasting.

Hyperhidrosis

IS THIS PROCEDURE FOR ME?

Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition where sweat glands cause excessive sweating.

Hyperhidrosis can affect any part of the body where sweat glands are found, however, the most common areas are the underarms, palms of the hands and soles of the feet. Hyperhidrosis sufferers are often self-conscious and avoid many situations because of the condition. Advanced Aesthetics offers an injectable treatment solution.

WHAT IS THIS PROCEDURE?

In keeping with government regulations we are unable to name specific products used for excessive sweating injections.
The anti-wrinkle injections we use at Advanced Aesthetics are made up of a naturally occurring toxin that is injected into the specific area. This targets the sweat glands, temporarily slowing down their function, and preventing excessive sweating. A very fine needle is inserted into the area and the substance injected. Most patients don’t require pain medication, but your doctor may administer a topical anesthetic or oral analgesic for the more sensitive areas such as the palms and feet.

WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?

There is minimal discomfort after the treatment and you can get back to your normal activities straight away. You should expect to see the initial results two to three days after with the best effects about a week later. To avoid bruising, don’t take aspirin seven days before the procedure and two days after.

Eyelid Surgery

IS THIS PROCEDURE FOR ME?

The most visible signs of ageing tend to take place on our face. Many men say these signs of ageing impact on both their personal and professional lives. Dark circles or bags under the eyes, excessive skin or wrinkles surrounding the eyelids, a tired appearance or puffiness all occur as a part of ageing, and can be particularly prominent in males. Eyelid surgery (known as blepharoplasty) is a corrective procedure that can reduce dark circles or “bags” under the eyes, remove the excess wrinkles, and provide a more youthful appearance to the eyes. This procedure can also correct drooping upper lids, puffy bags above and below the eyes, extra upper-eyelid skin, and hanging lower-lid skin.

WHAT IS THIS PROCEDURE?

Dr Gahankari usually performs blepharoplasty using local or general anaesthesia. He will assess and mark the excess eyelid skin before the operation. The incisions are made within the natural creases of the eyelids. The excess skin and muscle is removed along with the fat bulges. He will then suture the incisions with very fine sutures. In case of lower eyelids, excess skin and fat is removed conservatively to prevent the pull on the lower eyelid. In lower eyelids the scars are located just below the eyelash margin. In some instances, laser technology may be used to smooth lower eyelid areas. The procedure may also include anti-aging injectables to firm fine lines and wrinkles.

WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?

The healing process for this procedure is slightly longer than most other forms of cosmetic surgery; however, the benefits are long-lasting. Patients will have a more rested and youthful appearance. This procedure may result in some double or blurry vision for a few days, temporary swelling at the corners of the eyelids, and milia (tiny whiteheads). An extremely rare complication of eyelid surgery is blindness; Dr Gahankari will discuss the procedure and the associated risks with you at your appointment. The stitches are removed in about 5-7 days. Post-operatively the improvement in appearance is usually noticeable after a week or so when the swelling and bruising have subsided, but it may take up to six weeks to see the full results.

Rhinoplasty

IS THIS PROCEDURE FOR ME?

The size, shape and proportion of the nose has a dramatic impact on the aesthetic of a person’s face. Many people are unhappy with the look of their nose and seek out rhinoplasty to bring a better proportion to a nose and facial features, reduce the size of a nose, restore damage from an accident or injury, or treat nasal deformities present since birth. Often rhinoplasty is sought to help with breathing problems.

WHAT IS THIS PROCEDURE?

Rhinoplasty usually involves reducing the size of the nose by removing and sculpting the nasal tissues.

At a pre-operative consultation Dr Gahankari will examine the proportions of your nose, and perform an intra-nasal examination. He may also use a medical image morphing to simulate the results. Rhinoplasty may involve a small procedure if only a small bump on the nose requires correction, or a ‘complete rhinoplasty’ that involves reshaping the nose.

WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?

The results are unique to each individual. In general, nose surgery gives patients better facial balance and overall appearance. Most patients are operated as a day surgery. Nasal packs, if used, are removed in 24 – 48 hrs and the external splint is worn continuously for at least 10 to 14 days. Most of the swelling of the nose and eyes subsides in 2-3 weeks but subtle bruising and swelling subsides gradually and may take up to 6 months to one year.

Face Lift

IS THIS PROCEDURE FOR ME?
Most of us have been exposed to the sun, dry air and occasional stress in our lives. All of these factors can affect the delicate skin on our face and neckline. Thanks to modern surgical techniques a facelift (Rhytidectomy) can restore a fresh, more youthful look and patients often say the procedure takes at least 10 years off their appearance.

WHAT IS THIS PROCEDURE?

A facelift (Rhytidectomy) is a surgical procedure designed to smooth and firm the skin, while considerably reducing signs of aging by removing excess fat, tightening the underlying muscles, and re-draping the skin around the neck and face.

The standard procedure for a traditional facelift involves making a small incision just inside the hairline, following the contour downwards to the front of the ear and then upward behind the ear to the hairline. Excess skin is then removed. The procedure is often combined with eyelid reduction (blepharoplasty) and a brow lift or neck lift.

WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?
The main benefit of a facelift is a smoother and younger appearance. Lines around the corner of the mouth are lifted, creases between the cheeks and lips are diminished and skin around the jawline is tightened and lifted. Patients can expect their rejuvenated look to last for about 10 years.
