Plastic Surgery Profile Image

Plastic Surgery

Plastic surgery is a surgical specialty involving the restoration, reconstruction, or alteration of the human body.

Overview

Plastic surgery can be divided into two categories. The first is reconstructive surgery which includes craniofacial surgery, hand surgery, microsurgery, and the treatment of burns. The other is cosmetic or aesthetic surgery.

While reconstructive surgery aims to reconstruct a part of the body or improve its functioning, cosmetic surgery aims at improving the appearance of it.

The most popular surgeries are:

  • Liposuction
  • Eyelid surgery
  • Breast implants
  • Nose jobs
  • Facelifts

The minimal invasive injection of breast fillers was an attractive alternative to permanent breast implants for many women. This is performed under local anaesthesia, and patients do not require hospitalisation or have long recovery times. However, there have been many breast filler...

Hi, it 's not difficult to make your cheek bones more defined by using hyaluronic acid filler. It is minimally invasive, cheaper, and has very low downtime if any. However, if your face is wide and you're short, you won't look good with high cheek bones....

Thanks for the question. The answer depends on the severity of the deviation and the details would be in the planning of the surgery. You should discuss with your surgeon the options for cartilage harvest and how it is necessary to achieve your objectives. What is a deviate...

Thank you for your question. It is possible to correct asymmetries after a suture blepharoplasty procedure, however, not all problems can be addressed by repeating the same technique. The suture technique aims to create a fold but it does not address any excess skin and may not address ptosis of t...

The nasal septum is the bone and cartilage that divides the nasal cavity in half. If the nasal septum is deviated it will make one nasal passage smaller. When this is severe, it may block one side of your nose, reducing airflow and causing difficulty in breathing. Most septal de...

Thanks for the question. VASER (Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance) merely describes a technique for liposuction using a specialised ultrasound technology to break down fat cells before it is removed by a suction tubing. VASER liposuction can be done for both limit...

Thank you for your interesting question. Many patients are usually more concerned about the presence of double eyelids and hence most of the ptosis repair surgeries I have done are usually combined with double eyelid surgery. Whilst double eyelid blepharoplasty remains one of the mo...

Hi, Such scars are notoriously difficult to erase. Fractional carbon dioxide laser may help improve the skin texture somewhat but the scars are likely to be still quite visible even after several treatment sessions. Patients often ask me if surgical skin grafting is possible but ...

The basic liposuction operation in Singapore involves making a small incision less than 1cm long in the skin then inserting a metal ‘straw’ called a cannula into the fat and sucking the fat out. The fat is not liquid, so the cannula needs to be moved in and out to loosen...

Thank you for your question. At present, there is no standard definition of nostril exposure. However, this is a very common problem that many Asian patients consult for when they see too much of the nostrils from the frontal view and they complain that it gives them a ‘piggy&...
