Whether you want to rejuvenate your facial features or to accentuate the curves of your body, we can help.
Breast Augmentation (Breast Enhancement and Enlargement)
Breast augmentation is one of the most popular procedures performed at any plastic surgery practice in Dubai, and in 2008, more than a quarter of a million women underwent the procedure nationwide. Breast augmentation, also known as breast enhancement or enlargement, involves the placement of a saline or silicone implant either under the breast tissue or under the muscle to enhance the size and shape of the breast. Breast augmentation may also be combined with a breast lift to improve the shape as well as the size of the breasts.
Throughout their lives, women are exposed to multiple factors that can negatively impact their breast appearance. Genetics, gravity, loss of skin elasticity from aging, weight gain and loss, pregnancy, and breast-feeding can all negatively affect breast shape and firmness. The solution to these problems is a breast lift. Offered at our Jumeirah Beach Road, cosmetic surgery practice, a breast lift can reverse the effects of time, giving you the breasts you had when you were younger.
Women with excessively large breasts that are too large in proportion to their body frame can greatly benefit from breast reduction. These women not only complain about their appearance but they also suffer from physical symptoms such as neck pain, back pain, bra marks on the shoulders from the excessive weight, and recurrent skin rashes. Breast reduction surgery can solve these problems and dramatically improve the appearance of the breast.
Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia Treatment)
Gynecomastia (abnormally large male breasts) is more common than many people may realize, affecting 40 to 60 percent of men. Certain medical conditions, medications, and anabolic steroids can lead to gynecomastia, but the cause of most cases is unknown.
The most common breast reconstruction method involves the use of a tissue expander and the placement of a breast implant. For patients who undergo reconstruction after the skin has healed from breast removal, the expander will be used to stretch the skin and make room for the implant. The expander is a silicone balloon that is placed under the skin and will be gradually filled with a saline solution over a period of weeks. Once the skin has expanded to the desired amount, surgeons will replace the expander with a breast implant, and reconstruct the nipple and areola (the dark skin surrounding the nipple) to complete the reconstruction.
Breast reconstruction can also be performed using the patient’s own tissues. This flap reconstruction method uses skin, fat, and muscle from another part of the patient’s body, usually the chest, to reconstruct the breast.
One of the most popular body contouring treatments at our practice, liposuction removes fat deposits from the thighs, abdomen, buttocks, hips, neck, chin, and other areas where fat deposits stubbornly accumulate. These fat deposits are suctioned away through a powerful, tiny vacuum tube called a cannula. Fat deposits are removed wherever patients desire firmer, more attractive contours, including the thighs, abdomen, hips, buttocks, love handles, upper arms, chin, jowls, and neck. Many other procedures, such as abdominoplasty or breast reduction, are often performed with liposuction so that patients receive the full benefits of body contouring.
For patients who are burdened by excess fat and skin in the abdominal region, abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) offers a chance for the dramatic reinvention of the stomach area. The advantages of the tummy tuck procedure are threefold: abdominal muscles are tightened, excess skin is removed, and fatty deposits are generally eliminated through liposuction. The end result is a beautifully trimmed and toned midsection.
The tummy tuck procedure is intended for men and women alike who have found that the size and shape of their abdomens are resistant to change, even after following a regular exercise regime and making wise dietary choices. Candidates for abdominoplasty must also be close to their ideal body weights, as this is not a weight loss treatment. Many female tummy tuck patients become candidates for the procedure after pregnancy, if their stomach muscles remain lax and their abdominal skin becomes stretched and saggy. Other candidates have weakened stomach muscles and drooping abdominal skin that result from genetic predisposition, the general aging process, or significant weight loss.
Buttock Augmentation (Brazilian Butt Lift)
The famous Brazilian Butt Lift at Manchester Clinic MedSpa (Changing soon to The Private Clinic) can be a two step sculpturing and filling technique that enhances the roundedness and lifts the appearance of the butt.
First, Liposuction is performed around the gluteal area to remove fat while improving form and contour. Often people have enough fat in their buttocks to have a desirable shape, and removing the fat in the surrounding area is enough to achieve the best outcome. If necessary the second part of the procedure involves processing and transferring the fat removed from liposuction to the gluteus or using a silicone implant giving the desired projection and lift of the patient. In order to achieve optimum results from the Brazilian Butt Lift it is best achieved in conjunction with a liposculpting of the body to achieve a homogenous appearance.
Mommy Makeover is a common term for the combination of Tummy Tuck, Breast Surgery and Liposuction. These time-tested surgical procedures are the ones to which women most often turn to restore their bodies to what they enjoyed prior to their pregnancies.
Since most women find that exercise and dieting fall short in restoring the body to their pre-motherhood condition, women who are serious about finding a solution will turn to the ultimate fix, the Mommy Makeover. A woman’s self-esteem and self-image are often tied to her appearance, making sagging breasts and a loose, protruding tummy no small matter. Cosmetic surgery addresses these issues, restoring volume and youthful contours to the breasts and a firm, flatter profile to the abdomen
As we age, it is natural for our bodies to change; nowhere is this change more apparent than on our faces. Gravity, sunlight, and everyday wear eventually take their toll on our faces, as wrinkles and folds begin to develop around the eyes (“crow’s feet”), brow, and chin. At our Dubai clinic, a facelift will restore your facial appearance, returning the beauty and youthful firmness it once had.
Normally, the facelift procedure begins with small incisions behind the ears in order to avoid any obvious scarring in prominent areas of the face. From there, the surgeon is able to access the excess skin, fat, and muscle tissue that is responsible for making your face look less than ideal. The surgeon then tightens the regions deemed problematic and removes any extraneous tissue before closing the incisions with sutures and sending you home for recovery.
Brow Lift (Forehead Lift)
When we think of getting plastic surgery, our first thought is not normally the forehead. However, the forehead, when properly rejuvenated with a brow lift, can make all the difference in the way people see us.
There are hundreds of tiny muscles in our foreheads that give us fine control over the area, allowing us to furrow our brows when we are angry and lift our eyebrows when we are happy. As we get older, the muscles in our foreheads grow weaker, resulting in sagging and drooping which reduces our ability to be expressive.
Surgeons remove excess tissue and fat from the region while tightening the muscles. The skin and tissue are then fixed at a higher point on the skull, “lifting” the features of the face.
Brow lift surgery produces noticeable results, reducing wrinkles and excess skin for a more youthful and expressive appearance.
Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)
As we age, the skin around our eyes can start to lose its constitution, detracting from the eyes’ power and beauty. When people see bags or wrinkles around our eyes, they get the impression that we are tired, sad, or lethargic, though the opposite may be true.
Eyelid surgery can be performed to helps restore patients’ alert, fresh, youthful expressions. Tiny incisions along the natural folds of the eyelids tare made to smoothe wrinkles and eliminates bags under the eyes by removing excess fat, skin, and muscle and tightening the skin in the eye area.
The results of eyelid surgery by a talented surgeon are generally remarkable, and patients are usually extremely satisfied with their new, rejuvenated appearance.
Rhinoplasty, often referred to as a “Nose Job,” is a reshaping surgery performed to give the nose a more pleasing appearance. Rhinoplasty can enhance the appearance of the whole face by bringing balance to the features. Rhinoplasty is one of the most common cosmetic and restorative surgical procedures nationwide because it can drastically improve one’s appearance.
Because there is no standard nose that will look good on every face, it is extremely important to choose your surgeon wisely. We have plenty of before and after shots, so you can judge the aesthetic talents of our Surgeons.
A chin that is too small can throw even the most beautiful features off balance. With cosmetic chin reshaping, we are able to change the size and shape of the chin to help you achieve your ideal appearance.
We use the latest technology in facial implants to accomplish chin enlargement. After making a small incision inside of the mouth, an implant made of safe, pliable silicone (one of the materials used in breast implants) is implanted in order to add strength and definition to the chin.
