Breast Augmentation – Conical Implants

260CC LOW PROFILE CONICAL IMPLANT

All paired structures in the body have some form of asymmetry including the breast. These differences can include some of the following:

  • Chest wall/rib cage shape – this will determine the way your breast projects i.e. directly forwards, outwards or rarely inwards.
  • Breast volume – slight variation between sides is completely normal.
  • Nipple position on the breast, its height (measured from the notch between the collar bones to the nipple), the nipple distance from the midline and from the fold under the breast.
  • Height of the fold under the breast

Please note that aiming for perfection in a breast augmentation is not realistic as the biggest determinant of your outcome is what your breast looked like prior to surgery. A surgeon can use the same implant in different patients with very different results.

Facelift

MINI-FACELIFT/EYELID SURGERY

53yr old with revision facial surgery in the form of a mini-facelift, and eyelid surgery. Subtle change as requested.

Depending on the type of facelift performed, the operation can be performed either under local anaesthetic or a general anaesthetic, as a day case procedure or with a planned overnight stay.

Types of facelift surgery:

  • “Hitch lifts” – these come under various names including the 1 Hitch stitch, or the FLICK lift®. They are performed under Local Anaesthetic, day case treatments for the younger patients, who want a small lift along the cheekbone only.
  • “SMAS tightening type” facelifts – these are performed under local or general anaesthetic, with the aim to address cheek and jowl areas.
