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

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&...

Thank you for your question. This is a rather technical question and it depends on what the initial problem is and what is done during the surgery. Nonetheless, this is a good question and I’m glad more patients are now able to appreciate the different techniques and the impli...

Many patients do travel overseas for surgery. In general, I wouldn't advise it if there are capable surgeons in your own country. I do understand that Singapore is quite expensive for many cosmetic procedures. Part of the reason it is expensive is for patients' safety. Invasiv...

Thank you for your question. This is a very pertinent question for patients or parents considering breast augmentation. Because the changes from plastic surgery are often dramatic and permanent, it is important to have an understanding of how surgery can have an effect on you both physically and p...

Mummy Makeover: Everything You Need To Know About This Post-Pregnancy Surgery

Mummy Makeover: Everything You Need To Know About This Post-Pregnancy Surgery

Having children is a life-changing blessing for many. But many women often find it difficult to get back to their pre-pregnancy bodies with diet and exercise alone.

For this reason, plastic surgeons offer the “mummy makeover”. This is a collective term for a combination of elective surgical procedures. Plastic surgeons tailor each mummy makeover to each woman’s needs that aim to help women to regain their pre-pregnancy bodies and confidence.

A mummy makeover is usually performed in response to post-pregnancy changes in the breasts, abdomen, and waist that exercise and diet alone cannot reverse. These days, the scope of a mummy makeover has expanded to include the arms, thighs, genitalia, buttocks, and face.

A mummy makeover is normally performed as a single-stage procedure, which can make it cost-effective (as certain fees are only paid once) and convenient (because you only need to plan for a single recovery).

If your eyelashes are rubbing your cornea, you probably have an entropion rather than an ectropion. There are several types of entropion, the most common of which is age related 'involutional' entropion. In these cases, either simple eyelid stitches are done which rotate the eye...

Thank you for your question. VASER uses ultrasound energy to breakdown the fat before it is removed by suction. It is typically used in hi-definition liposuction procedures and does not necessitate admission to hospital. Most liposuction procedures can be done as a day pro...

I would recommend you to speak to your plastic surgeon about this matter as he/she will know your background surgical history better. Take care.
