Reconstructive plastic surgery

Plastic surgery is a surgical specialty involving the restoration, reconstruction, or alteration of the human body. You may be interested in plastic surgery due to birth defects, disease, burns or for other and more personal cosmetic reasons.

Plastic surgery can help improve the way you look and enhance your original features. Whether you are looking to have plastic surgery because of birth defects or for personal reasons, the results can boost your self-confidence, build your self-esteem and provide you with an entirely different outlook on life.

There are many options that can improve your life and correct disfigurements or enhance your appearance. Some of the more commonly popular plastic surgery procedures are abdominoplasty, Liposuction for Body Lifts, Arm Lifts, etc., facial surgeries such as Face Lifts and rhinoplasty, as well as nonsurgical procedures like Botox injections.

Principal areas of plastic surgery

  • Reconstructive surgery includes microsurgery and generally stresses on re-fixing or masking the negative effects of disease, trauma or surgery. It may include the disguise of defects with flaps or the moving of tissue from other parts of the body to the place where reconstruction has to be done.
  • Cosmetic or aesthetic surgery is usually performed in order to improve the visual appeal and change the unflattering features. However, even with today’s technological advances, plastic surgery is still no cake walk. It is surgery and that carries automatic risks, such as
  • ·        Blood clots
  • ·        Excessive or unexpected bleeding
  • ·        Infection
  • ·        Paralysis
  • ·        Loss or change of sensation
  • ·        Incomplete healing
  • ·        Anesthesia malfunction
  • ·        Secondary surgeries
  • ·        No satisfaction with results
  • ·        Nerve damage
  • ·        High debt or bankruptcy due to cost

BENEFITS OF PLASTIC SURGERY

Increased Self-Confidence

When you look good, you feel good. Improvements to appearance naturally translate to increased self-confidence for most people, which means a greater willingness to try new things or open up in social situations. You may also be willing to wear certain types of clothing or participate in activities you tended to avoid before your surgery, due to your discomfort with your appearance.

Improved Physical Health

Some plastic surgery procedures can improve your physical health as well as your looks. For example, rhinoplasty or nose reshaping surgery may improve breathing at the same time it improves the aesthetics of the nose.

Enhanced Mental Health

Mental health benefits can be gained from plastic surgery procedures as well. Some people see a reduction in social anxiety after their surgery, due to the new feelings of self-confidence their new look inspires. Asian hair and skin clinic provide wide range of services apart from this.

WHAT IS HAIR TRANSPLANT?

Hair transplantation is a surgical technique that moves hair follicles from a part of the body called the ‘donor site’ to a bald or balding part of the body known as the ‘recipient site’. It is primarily used to treat male pattern baldness. In this minimally invasive procedure, grafts containing hair follicles that are genetically resistant to balding are transplanted to the bald scalp.

Hair transplantation can also be used to restore eyelashes, eyebrows, beard hair and chest hair to fill in scars caused by accidents or surgery such as face-lifts and previous hair transplants. Hair transplantation differs from skin grafting in that grafts contain almost all of the epidermis and dermis surrounding the hair follicle, and many tiny grafts are transplanted rather than a single strip of skin.

The process involving follicular hair transplants is considered to be the most effective among hair restoration methods. In follicular hair transplant, the surgeon transplants hair from the permanent zone in the back of the scalp onto the affected areas.

Follicular hair transplant procedure

During follicular hair transplant the surgeon scans the follicular units to be removed from the donor tissue. This stereo microscopic dissection helps in protecting the follicular units. It also ensures a rich yield of both the follicular units and the total amount of hair that is restored.

Donor strip – In follicular hair transplants, the donor strip is the hair strip that is taken from one part of the body and transplanted to the bald region of the scalp. In this technique, the donor tissue is removed in one piece. This ensures that the follicular units being removed from the back of the scalp do not suffer from any damage.

Donor strip extraction – The donor strip is first taken out from the permanent zone in the back of the scalp. Then it is transplanted onto the areas of the scalp where there is no growth of hair. The single-strip harvesting in follicular hair transplants ensures preservation of the follicular units and protection of individual hair follicles from possible damage.

Advantages of hair transplant

Hair transplants are completely safe and natural. No special chemicals or medicines are used in this process that might damage your hair. Amongst all the hair growing methods hair transplant surgery is the most natural.

If you want a long term and permanent solution for your baldness then consider hair transplant surgery. There is no hassle in handling the transplanted hair. The person can maintain it as per his wish. He can color it oil it, wash it and can do hair style also.

A brief note on facelift surgery procedure

Also known as Rhytidectomy, a face lift is a surgical procedure that is aimed at reducing wrinkles, thus eliminating signs of ageing. The procedure also tightens sagging skin along the cheeks and the skin, giving you a younger looking skin. This procedure is suitable for both men and women, and are popular for both cosmetic and aesthetic reason. Facelift is also a standard procedure in reconstruction surgeries, especially when removal of a tumor or extra growth from the face is involved.

The usual process

The most common method of facelift surgery involves making an incision from the temple and flowing down and behind the ears, before meeting at the other end of the hair line. In case of a sagging jaw line, an incision will be made under the chin to correct this. Once the incisions are made, the skin is lifted and pulled back and the overlapping excess skin is trimmed away.

Once this is done, excess fat is removed, the muscle is tightened and the skin is re-stitched along the cut lines. Once the surgery is completed, the patient is expected to stay in the hospital for atleast a day, so that the doctors can monitor the healing progress and make sure that there are no further complications.

Modern face lifts are performed using keyhole surgeries, where small incisions are made on the skin and the procedure is completed using an endoscope to remove excess fat and offer skin lifts. This reduces chances of scars and also reduces healing time.

Pre surgery preparation

Like all surgeries, a face lift too requires a fair degree of preparation. You need to take all the necessary pre-surgery precautions in order to minimize any chances of complications. You might have to discontinue your medications for a while and also follow a strict diet. At Asian Hair and Skin clinic we offer world class face lift surgeries for our clients.

Wipe those wrinkles with fractional laser treatment

Fractional laser treatment is a fast growing non invasive cosmetic treatment that sues fine lasers to correct skin blemishes. Here, the laser is split into multiple segments, which are directed to microscopic skin areas. This treatment method is very different from traditional laser treatment, and is completely safe and non invasive. The results are immediate and striking, allowing you to take corrective action almost immediately.

Unlike the traditional laser treatment, which focuses either entirely on the epidermis (surface skin cells) or the dermal collagen (mid-layer skin, the fractional laser treatment effectively operates on both epidermis and the dermal layers, thus rejuvenating your skin from within and on the surface.

The fractal lasers are traditionally used to treat everything from wrinkles, sun burns, skin pigmentation, acne scars and more. Although this method of treatment is suitable for all parts of the body, it is often used on face, neck, chest and hands. Sometimes fractional laser treatment is combined with other surgical and non invasive treatments for optimal results.

With this treatment, one can easily attack well defined problem areas, and adjust the degree of treatment depending on the intensity of the problem. At Asian Hair and Skin Clinic, we offer the best in class laser treatments in Bangalore. For more information about our services, do visit our website at http://www.asianhairnskinclinic.com/

A brief history of liposuction

Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures in the world. This relatively simple procedure has a long history that went through multiple iterations and was assisted by technological innovations to reach a point where it is today.

Liposuction was first invented by two Italian gynaecologists, Dr. Georgio Fister and Dr. Arpad Fischer in the year 1976. Their technique of blunt closed liposuction was published in the year 1978. Here the suction cannulas were quite large and sharp, but they were able to offer satisfactory improvements to the patient’s aesthetics.

This innovation became extremely popular in Europe, however, it wasn’t until the 1980’s that liposuction became popular in the USA. However, technicians still used primitive technology that used large suction cannulas, thus limiting the results one could achieve.

This method was greatly improved when Dr. Jeffery Klein developed and studied the uses of tumescent local anaesthesia. He developed small, non-sharp cannulas which reduced blood loss and thus enabled for a much better fat removal.

This technique has been greatly improved since then and it undergoes constant technological improvements, thus ensuring betterment in liposuction.

Neck lifts are now less invasive

         Do you have rounded jaws? This might be because of the excessive fatty tissues in your jaw that contributes to the lacking definition between your neck and your jaw. This rounded shape can give you a chubby face, thus making you look older than you actually are.  The best way of getting rid of the excess tissues and regaining a well defined jaw is by a procedure called a neck lift.

          Neck lift procedures have gotten less invasive these days, thanks to the excellent advancement in medical technologies. Here, a small incision is made underneath the chin, and excess fat is removed via liposuction. Then two more incisions are made behind each ear, which is then used to tighten the platysma muscle, which helps to achieve a tight, firm appearance.

      This method is extremely safe and leaves virtually no scars. Smaller incisions mean shorter recovery time and less discomfort as well. With the incisions being made at dedicated locations, it reduces the risk of damaging facial nerves. Ultimately, it offers you natural looking results over longer periods of time.

         At Asian Hair and Skin Clinic, we offer exquisite neck lifts and other forms of facial correction procedures that makes your skin look younger and better. For more information about our services, do visit our website at www.asianhairnskinclinic.com

Top 5 Acne Triggers

Acne is one of the most common skin problems in the world today. We have all had harrowing experiences trying to rid our skin of these blemishes. Some of us have won the war, but some of us are still battling it out. In some cases acne breaks out without any warning, and you will be left wondering why such a curse has been put upon you. Here are five common acne triggers. Understanding them will allow you to take precautions in the right regard.

  1. Cosmetics: Using excessive cosmetics or not removing them properly from your skin can lead to clogged pores in your skin, which can lead to severe acne.
  2. Hormones: Hormones known as androgens are typically responsible for acne. These hormones regulate the oil glands in your skin. Over stimulating these glands can lead to dead skin getting stuck in the pores, thus resulting in acne.
  3. Food: Scientists have determined that certain types of food can make acne worse, if not directly cause them. Foods that have a high glycemic index are the culprits. Foods with excessive sugar, dairy based food and other junk food should be avoided in order to arrest acne.
  4. Stress: Stress increases the release of a substance called cortisol, which can aggravate your acne problem. Also, when people are under stress they tend to pick their pimples, which can lead to long term scarring as well.
  5. Medications: A lot of common medication such as anabolic steroids, lithium etc can worse your acne problems.
