About our services
Plastic surgery includes not only cosmetic or aesthetic surgery, but also surgical repair of congenital deformities. Cosmetic surgery is a subspecialty of plastic surgery which is specifically concerned with maintaining, restoring or enhancing normal appearance.
We promise expertise as well as extensive experience in aesthetic surgery, cosmetic, reconstruction and revision surgery.
We treat an extensive range of conditions including the following:
- Breast reconstruction (reconstruction and cosmetic)
- Burn treatment/reconstruction
- Carpal tunnel surgery
- Facial palsy
- Hands and wrist arthritis and pain
- Skin cancers - malignant and benign
Cosmetic surgery comprises a wide range of surgical procedures including:
- Tummy tucks (adominoplasty)
- Nose jobs (rhinoplasty)
- Eyelid lifts (blepharoplasty)
Non-surgical procedures include:
- Wrinkle relaxation
- Anti-aging treatments
- Chemical peels
Craniofacial surgery is a sub-specialty of plastic surgery and oral and maxillofacial surgery that aims to treat and normalize deformities of the skull, face and jaws whether congenital or acquired.
This is a complex subspecialty not only because it often requires cooperation with other specialties e.g. ophthalmology or ENT, but also because the growth of the facial skeleton must be taken into account when considering surgery on children. Access to the deeper structures including the facial and skull bones is undertaken through incisions that are, as far as possible, hidden within the hairline or the mouth.
Orthofacial surgery is surgery of both the facial skeleton and soft tissue alterations which would be traditionally be cosmetic surgery. This type of work is traditionally carried out by either plastic or maxillofacial surgeons who have training in both craniofacial bony surgery as well as traditional cosmetic procedures.
It is based around orthognathic surgery, which is the correction of jaw disproportion and with a full understanding of the affects that this may have on a patient’s appearance, aims to maximise the positive effects by performing other procedures such as a rhinoplasty (nose job), genioplasty (chin augmentation or set back) facial implants as well as fat grafting and blepharoplasty.
Maxillofacial surgery is unique in requiring a dual qualification in medicine and dentistry, and is often seen as the bridge between medicine and dentistry, treating conditions that require expertise from both backgrounds such as head and neck cancers, salivary gland diseases, facial disproportion, facial pain, temporomandibular joint, jaw joint disorders, impacted teeth, cysts and tumours of the jaws as well as numerous problems affecting the oral mucosa such as mouth ulcers and infections.
Reconstructive plastic surgery aims to improve or normalize the function or appearance of the body. Reconstructive Plastic Surgeons treat all parts of the body for conditions such as trauma (eg hands and face), burns, tumours, infections and congenital or acquired deformities.
Advance technology and microsurgery techniques have improved significantly the options for patients with significant deformities such as mastectomy or facial disfigurement. Plastic surgeons often work in conjunction with other surgical sub-specialities (e.g. orthopaedics, oral and maxillofacial surgery, and ENT)
