BLEPHAROPLASTY (EYELID SURGERY)

 

BLEPHAROPLASTY (EYELID SURGERY)

Frequently asked questions

The skin quality and youthful volume of eyelids change over time with aging. If you feel your eyes have a tired look and you have excess upper eyelid skin, or loose and baggy lower eyelids, then this procedure might be beneficial to you.

The aim of upper eyelid blepharoplasty is to mainly remove the excess skin, hooding, for a more youthful look. The upper eyelid is the best place in the body to put a scar and consequently it tends to heal extremely well, hidden in your natural eyelid creases.

This procedure is performed under local anaesthetic.
Lower eyelid blepharoplasty is a more complex procedure performed under general anaesthetic. It aims to address the slight loss of support and structure of the lower eyelid that develops with aging and some of the excess skin. It is used to remove eyelid bags and to soften the effects of aging for a more youthful and less tired look.

An incision is made just under your eyelid line, extended to one of your natural, crow’s feet, creases on the side. Through this, the deep tissues are tightened to recreate support, excess bulging fat is removed and finally the excess skin is trimmed.

Upper blepharoplasty:

These include mild discomfort, infection, bleeding, bruising, swelling, asymmetry, dryness, watery eyes, dehiscence and delayed wound healing, need for revision and lagophthalmos (inability to fully close the eyes at night-time, this improves over time).

Lower blepharoplasty:

The general risks are similar to the above. However, this is a more complex procedure than upper eyelid surgery. On the whole, the recovery is a little longer and the bruising and swelling might take a week or so more to resolve with the final result being evident at about three months.
There is a rare risk of ectropion (eyelid being pulled down) and an even rarer risk of experiencing bleeding behind the eye, which if not corrected immediately (usually by going back to surgery), can lead to blindness. However, this is very rare indeed.

Dry eyes can also be troublesome and will be treated with moisturising drops until this improves over a course of about six to eight weeks.

    EAR LOBE SURGERY

     

    EAR LOBE SURGERY

    Frequently asked questions

    Depending on the needs of the patient, the surgery will be tailored accordingly. If you feel that you have disproportionately large or stretched ear lobes, then a cosmetic reduction may be right for you. Careful consideration must be given to the type and placement of incisions for the best cosmetic outcome. There are different techniques to achieve this and it is something we will need to discuss and plan carefully. For example, there are considerations with regards to the desired shape of the lobe and whether the individual is after a ‘hanging’ or an ‘attached’ look and this can dictate the technique used. My aim overall, is to create ear lobes that are proportionate in size to the rest of the ear.

    If you have split ear lobes, the aim will be to repair these by removing the split and meticulously stitching the ear lobes back together again. The piercing is also usually removed (may be kept if needed) and this can be recreated 6 months or so later.

    This procedure is performed under local anaesthetic.

    Yes, however your ears will continue to grow as you age, but this will all be in proportion. If very heavy earrings are worn for a long time after the repair, or the ear lobes are re-stretched with a large piercing, then the result will deteriorate.

    The lobes should be protected for 6 weeks after the surgery with a small paper tape dressing.

    This is a very safe procedure with minimal morbidity and down time. There are however some risks such as discomfort, hypersensitivity, small risk of infection, scarring, over/under correction, asymmetry, need for further correction and recurrence.

    In particular, the ear is notorious for its potential to form bad scars, such as hypertrophic or keloid scars. This is not common, but it is an unavoidable risk and something that can be very difficult to predict.

      PROMINENT EAR CORRECTION (OTOPLASTY)

       

      PROMINENT EAR CORRECTION (OTOPLASTY)

      Frequently asked questions

      This procedure is suitable for anyone who feels that their ears are ‘sticking out’ more that the average person.
      The correction is achieved via a short incision at the back of the ear, through which, the cartilage is moulded into its new shape using sutures.

      The aim of this surgery is to create a natural looking ear without an ‘overdone’ appearance. Looking from the front, the helical fold (outer ear rim), should always be visible and be just outside the second inner fold (antihelical fold). The latter, is the one that is commonly underdeveloped in prominent ears and it is the one re-created by this procedure. For best aesthetic results, this new inner fold should not obscure the outer fold, when a person is seen from the front.

      In adults, the procedure can be done either under local or general anaesthetic. For children (not currently offered), the procedure requires a general anaesthetic.

      After Otoplasty surgery, a soft head band is required to protect the ears from folding over, especially at night. This needs to be worn for the first 6 weeks, to prevent the ears from adopting their old shape (recurrence). The new shape of the cartilage is held in place with sutures and until it has healed in this position, any physical sports should be strictly avoided.

      You must not allow anyone to pull or tug your ears during this 6-week period and as long as these precautions are taken the new shape will be permanent.

      Like with any other surgery, there is an element of mild discomfort and pain relief will be provided for you. There is also a small risk of infection, bleeding (haematoma), swelling, bruising, formation of a bad scar, asymmetry, over/under correction, recurrence of the old shape needing re operation.

      Ears are unfortunately a vulnerable site for developing bad scarring, such as hypertrophic or keloid scarring. This is very difficult to predict, but a personal history of previous adverse scars or a family history of such, will increase the risk.

      Swelling and bruising progressively reduce over the course of approximately two weeks, but the swelling might take a little longer to completely resolve and this can vary between patients.

      Like in all surgery, there is no guarantee for a perfect outcome.

        Frequently asked questions

        If you have excess loose skin and fat in your under arm area (bingo wings), you might be a good candidate for this procedure. This happens as part of the natural aging process, or after significant weight loss.

        Brachioplasty aims to remove this excess tissue for a smoother, tighter and more youthful upper arm contour. This procedure is frequently complemented with an element of liposuction.

        The results can stand the test of time, but before considering any cosmetic abdominal procedure, it is imperative that you are at your desired and stable weight, as considerable post-operative weight fluctuations can affect the final aesthetic result. As part of the aging process the quality of tissues can also deteriorate over time, slightly altering the result of surgery.

        Although pregnancy following an abdominoplasty is not contraindicated, it is best to have completed your family before considering this procedure

        This is a big procedure and risks include discomfort, possible areas of numbness below the new belly button, poor scarring, infection, risk of bleeding, seroma (collection of fluid, 2-5%), DVT (clot in the legs), PE (clot in the lung), swollen abdomen, degrees of asymmetry, back pain, dog-ear (bumps at the edges of the scar), belly button necrosis, recurrence of the muscle gap due to over activity in the healing phase, wound breakdown and delayed wound healing.

        Very often you can also feel abdominal tightness, acid reflux and bloating after the surgery and there can be a change in your bowel habit. This varies between patients and generally improves with time.

        I will generally not perform this surgery on active smokers. This is because the risks are far greater, including infections, poor wound healing, seroma formation and poor scarring. If you smoke, it is best advised that you stop at least for one month before and after the procedure.

        The final result in terms of resolution of swelling will be at approximately 4 to 6 months. This varies between patients and the final result and quality of the scar is evident at one year.

        Wound breakdown and delayed wound healing can occur especially at the place of maximum tension, which is normally the middle of the scar. This is rare and as mentioned, more common in smokers and patients with other medical conditions, such as diabetes.

        As with any surgery, there is always the risk of stretching of the scars and the development of poor-quality thick scars, such as hypertrophic or keloid scars.

        Lastly like in all surgery, there are no guarantees for a perfect outcome.
