This procedure involves the insertion of a silicone prosthesis to enhance both the shape and size of the breast. It is a very popular and safe procedure performed under general anesthesia (i.e asleep) and involves very little scarring. No drainage is required.
Blepharoplasty is performed on the eyelids to remove excess skin and fat from either upper, lower or both upper and lower lids. A very popular operation and can provide a great degree of improvement in facial appearance.

Before lasers, dermabrasion and deep peels were the way to go for skin resurfacing. Dermabrasion involves mechanically removing skin layer by layer until a smooth surface results. Dermabrasion has a result at least comparable to laser if not better.
Usually employed in light skinned patients to minimize smokers lines and may be used judiciously with deep peels for an optimal result. This is done in the rooms under local anaesthetic.
