Forehead / Brow lift

There are two groups of muscles in the forehead - one that lifts the brow and one that pulls it down. As muscles get weaker with age, our eyebrows gradually start to droop, causing excess skin to collect in the upper eyelids. Sometimes the drooping is due to inheritance. A heavy drooping brow gives a sleepy and tired look; this can be reserved by the brow-lift operation, which raises the eyebrows by cutting the muscles responsible for pulling it down. This operation is often done together with face-lift, if the cause of drooping is age.

The complaints from previous clients before this procedure

Tired look. Drooping brow and eyes. Heavy and sagging forehead.

The procedure

There are two ways of doing the operation:

1) Classic method where the surgeon cuts an incision from ear to ear, brow-lift is done via this cut. This will cut off some of the nerves giving rise to a numb scalp behind the cut; this however has no effect on health.

2 ) Endoscopic method (key-hole surgery) where the surgeon makes 3-4 small cuts in the scalp and the operation is done via special instruments using camera and TV. LSC has the facility to do the Endoscopic method.

The operation can be done under local anesthesia and general anesthesia.

Duration of operation
1.5/2 hours

Ideal age
35+ when due to age or 18+ when due to inheritance

Length of stay in hospital
One night

Length of stay in Penang
A minimum of 8 nights after discharge from the Hospital is required. For most outer signs of surgery to be faded we advise 10 days stay in Penang after surgery.

Nose / Rhinoplasty / Nose reshaping / Ethnic Rhinoplasty

Plastic surgeons usually recommend that patients wait until they are at least 16, and possibly older for boys, before undergoing Rhinoplasty. This is because the nose may not be fully developed at a younger age. Carefully consider about surgery .The desire to change your appearance should based on your own feelings rather than those of your parents or friends.
Rhinoplasty, or surgery to reshape the nose, is one of the most common of all plastic surgery procedures. Rhinoplasty can reduce or increase the size of your nose, change the shape of the tip or the bridge, narrow the span of the nostrils, or change the angle between your nose and your upper lip. It may also correct a birth defect or injury, or help relieve some breathing problems.

Sometimes certain breathing problems related to the internal nasal structures can be corrected at the same time as nose reshaping is performed. Your cosmetic surgeon will be able to help you determine whether these structures should be modified along with reshaping your nose.

The complaints from previous clients before this procedure

Nose does not fit in face. Badly proportioned nose. Nose is too big, wide, narrow or small. Nostrils are too wide. People can see in my nostrils. Glasses don't stay on my nose. Breathing problems.


There are 4 types of surgery to consider:

1) Rhinoplasty

Operation is carried out inside the nose, so there are no external scars at all. This is done whenever there isn't a problem with the tip of the nose.

2) External / Open Rhinoplasty

This involves opening the nose via a cut in the columella - the strip of tissues separating the nostrils. This results in a small scar, which will fade away. When the nose is to be narrowed or nostrils made smaller, there will be also tiny scars hidden by the creases where the nostrils join the cheek.

3)Tip Surgery / Top refinement (with or without implant) / Nose Implant

When a full rhinoplasty is not required, these operations can be done.

Depending on the shape of the nose, the surgeon may have to take away tissues or add tissues such as your own ear cartilage or a silicone material to the nose to achieve the desired effect. Sometimes the surgeon may need to work on the septum- the tissues, which separate the two cavities of the nose.

4) Ethnic Rhinoplasty

There are distinctive features of ethnic noses that have created an entire subspecialty of Ethnic Rhinoplasty. There are specific planning issues, techniques, implants, and recovery that are unique to the planning and performance of rhinoplasty in ethnic patients and patients of color.
Focusing on typical ethnic features such as a low flat top of the nose, a vague bulbous tip, a plunging or "hooked over" tip and wide flared nostrils, or a short nose or any combination of these.

What it does not do

Rhinoplasty will not dramatically transform your look, or give you a 'designer' nose, based upon your favorite celebrity.

The procedure

You will wake up with the nose plastered or taped, and sometimes a nose pack is used which will be removed the morning after surgery. Your eyes will be swollen and bruised, you are advised to sit up or lie propped up most of the time to reduce swelling, as well you will be given ice packs.
Any stitches will be removed in 5 days and the plaster will be removed after about 7 days.

Duration of operation
1-4 hours

Length of stay in hospital
None to 1 night depending on the procedure

Length of stay in Penang
Depending on the type of surgery. With a simple implant the patient can leave Penang 3 days after surgery. With more complex surgery such as reduction rhinoplasty a minimum of 8 nights after discharge from the Hospital is required. For most outer signs of surgery to be faded we advise 10 / 14 days stay in Penang after surgery.

Eyes

Aesthetic eyelid surgery is performed on adults of all ages. Some people have eyelid surgery to correct problems that are a result of aging, while others have inherited traits that cause them to seek treatment as early as their 20s or 30s. Eyelid tightening is popular as it improves the expression of the face.

1) Doubled Eyelid Operation

Double eyelids are created by making cuts on the upper eyelids and by applying stitches to create the fold; the result raises the eyelashes giving the eyes a brighter look.

The Procedure

The operation is done under local anesthetic. Skin markings are done before operation, then a piece of skin is removed; stitches are applied to create the fold. There will be some tapes applied to the wound after operation. Stitches will be removed 5 days after the operation.
Yours eyes will be swollen; there may be some bruises, which will be settled in a week.

Lips / Chin / Cheek

Lips

The lip can be enhanced through many ways.
Too much or too little lip is shown- this can be corrected by a small operation under local anesthetic where a small wedge of tissue is removed.
The lip is too thin- we can make it fuller (and sexier) by adding filler material such as collagen injection, fat injection and dermal fat graft.

Chin

The chin may be too small or big; this can be improved by performing a surgery on the chin either to make it bigger or smaller.

1) Chin reduction
This is making the chin smaller by reducing the size of Chin bone.

2) Chin Implant
We may use silicone implant to make it bigger with better definition to look younger.

3) Liposuction of the Chin - "Double Chin"
A liposuction of the area under the chin, to get rid of a so-called "double chin". This procedure is rather simple and the results are often very satisfactory.

Cheek Implant

Adding an implant can make a cheek look higher or stronger hence a more youthful.

The Face and neck

Facelift

A facelift restores smoother, more pleasing contours to your face and neck. It can help you look as good as you feel, and perhaps feel younger than you are.

There are few types of face -lift operations, the older technique of lifting the skin only as practice by older generation of plastic surgeons gives an unnatural tight look, however newer techniques give much more dramatic improvement, at the same time looking natural. Three of the more modern techniques used are:

1) SMAS Lift
The SMAS layer lies just deep to the skin; it is strong layer of tissues allowing tension to be applied on, so that when it is tightened, the overlying skin is tightened at the same time. This operation involves cutting out the SMAS layer and pulling it up with stitches. This operation gives patient a tighter and smoother face hence a younger look, it also improves the appearance of a turkey gobble neck but has a little effect on nose-to-mouth grooves


2) The Extended SMAS Lift (Or Deep Plane)
This operation involves dissecting the SMAS layer right towards the nose, freeing it away from the cheek ligaments and then pulling it up to improve the look of the middle of the face, perking up sagging cheeks, flattening nose-to-mouth grooves and reducing jowls, as well as tightening the neck. This operation may produce less swelling than limited SMAS; fewer scars and recovery can be very quick.

3) Endoscopic Forehead And Face-Lift

This is the latest in face-lift surgery. With this method, the keyhole surgery technique is used. A special camera, TV monitors and instruments are used to perform the operation. Three small cuts are made in the scalp above the forehead, special instrument are used to lift the forehead with the help of the small camera and TV monitor, in the process, wrinkles and frown lines in the forehead are removed. Small cuts are also made just above the ear in the temple and behind the ear lobe; again special instruments and camera are introduced to perform the face-lift and neck-lift. With time, all this small scars will fade to almost invisible. Complication associated with the Endoscopic face-lift is less and the patients can heal faster without the signs of having a face-lift done.

The procedure

The surgery can be comfortably done under general or under local anesthetic.
After surgery, you would have bandages and drains, which will be removed the next day.
Stitches are removed 5 to 12 days later. Your face will feel bruised, swollen, tight, numb, and stiff for at least 10 days, you may feel depressed and miserable because you will look awful initially, although this will slowly subside by the day, you will begin to appreciate what a change you have.
Sitting up or propping up helps to reduce swelling, and a cold compress applied often speeds up healing process. You can wash your hair a few days after surgery. Make-up can be applied after the stitches are taken out on the 5th day. Most people will be able to face the world 2 weeks after surgery, back to work 3 weeks after surgery. During the first three months, you are advised to avoid sport, any other strenuous activity or prolonged exposure to the sun. It is important to keep the skin well moisturized.

Erbium YAG Laser Resurfacing

The procedure

This procedure, when applied to the whole face, is always done under general anesthetic, as the surgeon needs you to lie very still. Laser resurfacing is a process where the upper layers of aged or damaged skin are vaporized by applying a controlled laser beam. The resulting healing and restructuring of the skin is to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

Laser pulses target the surface layer of the skin, vaporizing water and the skin's surface without affecting deeper layers. A new surface layer will then grow back - a layer that is soft, wrinkle-free, and younger looking. The heat generated during the process also shortens the collagen fibers in the skin, which restores some of its elasticity

The complaints from previous clients before this procedure
Dull appearance. Fine Lines. Dark color under eyes. Brown spots and splotchy, uneven skin color. Crows feet. Smokers lines.

Duration of operation
1 to 2.5 hours depending on area treated

Ideal age

Chin, Jaw Line And Neck Lift

With aging, deep folds and wrinkles develop and make the chin, jaw line and neck less well defined; double chin and turkey gobble neck appearance makes a person look old. This procedure reverses the aging process by reposition the sagging muscles and fat pads; some of the fat is removed and the excess skin is removed by a clever cut which is not obviously visible. Liposuction is often needed to remove the double chin.

The procedure

This procedure is often done together with a face-lift; hence what has been described for face-lift applies. General or local anesthetic may be used, however, if only liposuction is done to remove the double chins and neck, only local anesthetic is required. There will be swelling and bruises, which will subside in about 10 days.

Full Facial Rejuvenation

A full facial rejuvenation does not stop the ageing process but certainly gives an up to 10 year younger look without giving that sometimes "artificial" look. The results for this procedure are very satisfactory. This is the most popular facial procedure for woman between 45 and 55 in the USA and Europe.

The procedure

This procedure is always done under general anesthetic. It includes a full brow / forehead / face and neck lift together with tightening of the upper and lower eyelids or eye bag removal. Also Erbium YAG laser resurfacing of the skin around the mouth as this area can hardly be tightened. When required we use a filler to insert in those areas of the face that needs adjustment because of extreme gravities.

Thermage; Skin Tightening and contouring without surgery. Also known as Thermacool or Thermalift

As people grow older, the collagen that provides structure to our face begins to break down. As a result, fine line and wrinkles begin to form. How Thermage actually works is that it stimulates the gradual growth of new collagen and the procedure temporarily reduces wrinkles and renews facial contours. The device uses a new form of delivery of radio frequency energy so that the energy is transmitted through larger areas of the skin. During delivery of this radio frequency pulse the upper layer of the skin – the epidermis – is protected by cool cryogen spray. Thus, the radio frequency energy can heat deeper tissue without inducing a superficial skin burn. This controlled heating of deeper layers of skin and other tissue causes skin contraction and tightening and is referred to as volumetric tissue heating. An immediate effect of volumetric tissue heating is collagen contraction or shrinkage. A secondary or later effect is collagen remodelling and production of new collagen as well as continued tightening over time as the skin heals.

The procedure

With each pulse Thermage delivers controlled, uniform, and sustained heat in the tissue underneath the surface of the skin. The heat is applied approximately 4 mm underneath the skin surface, into the dermis (the epidermis is the top layer of skin). This produces bulk or volumetric tissue heating that may result in contraction and tightening of flaccid or loose skin, tightening of the collagen underneath the skin, and the generation of new and tighter collagen. The upper layer of the skin (the epidermis) is protected from this heating by cryogen cooling of the treatment tip which keeps the temperature of the epidermis constant while deeper tissues are heated.

The complaints from previous clients before this procedure

Fine lines. Sagging skin. Loss of jaw line. Crows feet.

Duration of operation
30 mins to 2 hours depending o areas treated

Ideal age

Mastopexy/ Breast lift

Loss of skin elasticity, gravity and other factors such as weight loss, pregnancy and breast-feeding ultimately affect the shape and firmness of your breasts. Patients who are generally satisfied with the size of their breasts can have a breast lift to raise and firm them, resulting in a more youthful breast contour. Some patients may be unhappy that they have lost a significant amount of breast volume over time. In such cases, implants inserted in conjunction with a breast lift can increase breast size at the same time as the shape and position of the breasts are enhanced.

The procedure

Mastopexy involves lifting up the nipple, pulling up the breast tissue and reducing the amount of skin. In some cases, an implant may be needed. This procedure will make the breasts look younger. The operation can be done under general or under local anesthesia.

Breast Enlargement

Many women choose to have their breasts enlarged in order to satisfy their own desire for a fuller bust line. Your breasts may not have developed to a size that meets your expectations, or one breast may be smaller than the other. You may have been happy with your breasts in the past but feel that they look different now. Often, after weight loss, childbirth or as a result of aging, the breasts lose volume and their shape changes. Breast augmentation can enhance your breast size and shape, and give you the more proportional figure that you always wanted.

Breast enlargement involves putting an implant, usually made from silicone or a saline filled, or prosthesis underneath the breast tissues to make the breast bigger

Is my implant safe?

All implant consist bag containing silicone gel or normal saline or Soya bean oil or hydro gel. There are lots of rumors on the safety of silicone implants especially in the USA where lawyers make money out of suing doctors. So far, there is no hard evidence to support that silicone causes various sicknesses suggested. Furthermore, the improvement is silicone manufacture in the past few years means that there are virtually no complications that arise as a result of failure, rupture or seepage.

Please see our links section for more information on the risks associated with breast implants.

The procedure

A preoperative consultation is important to discuss the procedure and desirable size. One suggestion is that during your intake conversation, bring along a bra you would like to fill and bear in mind the surgeon can only estimate the size of implant needed. Typically, an implant size ranges from 120 cc (small) to 450 cc (big).
The incision is made either on the armpit, just above breast fold below or around the nipple. You can discuss your choice wit our surgeon. The prosthesis is usually placed under the breast tissues on top or below the chest muscle. You will wake up with breast bandaged. The procedure is done under general or under local anesthesia

Tummy tuck/Abdominoplasty

Also called "Abdominoplasty" is a major surgical procedure removing excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen and to tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall. The procedure can dramatically reduce the appearance of a protruding abdomen.

The best candidates for Abdominoplasty are men or women who are in relatively good shape but are bothered by a large deposit of fat or loose abdominal skin that won't respond to diet or exercise. The treatment is particularly helpful to women who, through multiple pregnancies, have stretched their abdominal muscles and skin. For older patients, where loss of skin elasticity may have occurred, possibly as a result of mild obesity, Abdominoplasty can make good improvements.

The procedure

There are 2 kinds of tummy tuck, the tummy tuck and a mini tummy tuck. It's up to our surgeon to decide which procedure will leave you with the best results. Often when excess skin is not too large a mini tummy tuck will be sufficient. The mini tummy tuck does not include any liposuction.

The method of surgery is to tighten the skin of the abdomen by undermining the skin and stretching it. Excess skin and fat is then removed. The incision is placed across the lower abdomen sometimes from hip to hip where clothing conceals any scaring.

The skin is marked before operation. This operation is done under local or under general anesthesia. It involves cutting tissues from the lower abdomen and relocating the belly button.
Liposuction may be applied to help shape the waist. Drains are inserted which will be removed 24-48 hours later. You will be left with a scar, which will be low enough to be concealed under bikini line. There will also a small scar around the belly button. The scar will take some time to settle.

The complaints from previous clients before this procedure

Sticking out tummy. Excess skin and fat around tummy. Loose abdominal skin. "Apron".

Duration of operation
2.5- 3.5 hours

Ideal age
35+

Length of stay in hospital
1-2 nights. Often this procedure is an outpatient operation but we prefer to have you stay in the clinic for 2 nights in order that we can provide you with more comprehensive aftercare, thus reducing your overall postoperative care requirements.

Holiday required
2-3 weeks

Length of time results last
Permanent

Caution

Patients who intend to lose a lot of weight should postpone the treatment. Also, women who plan future pregnancies should wait, as vertical muscles in the abdomen that are tightened during the treatment can separate again during pregnancy. If you have scars from previous abdominal surgery, your surgeon may recommend against the treatment or may caution you that scars could be unusually prominent after a second treatment.

A tummy tuck can change your appearance and usually improves your self-confidence. Before you decide to have the treatment think carefully about your expectations and discuss them with your surgeon.

A thigh lift is done to remove excess skin from the thigh and buttock area giving a slimmer thigh.. This excess skin is usually caused by weight loss. A thigh lift can be combined with other treatments. A thigh lift does not slim down someone who simply has a large or fat thigh.

The procedure

Inner thigh lifts involve incisions made over the inner thigh, hidden in the groin crease. Outer thigh and buttock lifts involve incisions extending from the groin around the back. Sometimes a vertical scar in the inner thigh is necessary. These scars are concealed under a bikini line and all of these scars fade with time. This procedure is done under local or under general anesthesia.

Body lift

A body lift is done to remove excess skin from the thigh, legs and buttock area giving a slimmer lower body. This excess skin is usually caused by weight loss. A body lift involves liposuction to get rid of excess fat..

The procedure

The incision is very thin and is located entirely around the waistline like a belt. The procedure involves liposuction of any excess fat in the thighs and legs, then removing excess skin high up on the outer thighs and above the buttocks, loosening the tissues below this and pulling them up and sewing the edges together. Deep stitches are secured to the ligaments and bone so there is less of a tendency for the skin to fall down. The length of the incision depends on the amount of excess skin. It is not unusual to remove 5-10 inches in length. These scars are concealed under high waist trousers or skirts and all of these scars fade with time. This procedure is done under local or under general anesthesia.

Liposuction/ Liposculpture/ Fat removal/ Body contouring

Liposculpture is particularly well suited for women and men who are of relatively normal weight but have isolated pockets of fat that cause certain areas of their body to appear disproportionate. These localized fat deposits may sometimes be inherited and typically do not respond to dieting or exercise. Liposuction is often the only way to eliminate them.

While it is possible to undergo liposuction at almost any age, you will obtain the best results if your skin still has enough elasticity to achieve a smooth contour following fat removal. When skin is inelastic, as in some older patients, it may not restore well and a skin tightening procedure may be necessary.

What it does do

Liposculpture flattens specific parts of the body

What it does not do

Liposculpture should not be considered as the only means of reducing weight (although it can) or as a total cure for cellulite.

Body zones where Liposculpture is most effectively applied

It works best in the following areas:
Lower abdomen (tummy)
Hips
Outer thighs
Inner aspect of knee
Beneath the chin
Breast- as part of reduction procedure
Male Chest (make a drawing pointing out areas)
Love Handle
Stomach
Upper arm
Lower back
Upper abdomen
Buttock
Inner thighs
Lower legs- calf

The procedure

Skin markings are made before the procedure. Depending on the areas involved, you will have either a local or general anesthetic. The surgeon uses a cannula to suction fat using a cannula via one or more stab incisions. You will have bandages, a garment or specialized sticky tapes applied to reduce bruising. You should expect swelling, bruising and some discomfort initially.

Beer belly. Unwanted fat. Problems with shape. Fat wont go away in certain areas even with exercise and diets. Double chin or fat neck. Flabby arms. Jodhpur thighs. Friction inner thighs. Fat inside of knees. Love handles.

Duration of operation
45 minutes to 3 hrs. Depending on amount of fat removed and area treated

Ideal age
Under 55 with good skin tone

Length of stay in hospital
1-3 days depending on amount of fat removed


Holiday Required
1-3 weeks depending on amount removed

Length of time result last

GA is preferred and recommended, although it is possible to receive a LA with sedation.


Caution

As Liposculpture can be performed at different zones around the body, different zones require varying amounts of work and subsequently we require you to be a specific as possible when making an application to Beautiful Holidays for Liposculpture. At your intake consultation with your surgeon when you arrive in Malaysia there may be some changes made to your initial requests. Beautiful Holidays will provide you with a new quotation that matches the surgeon's final recommendations.

How much you currently weigh and whether you plan to lose or gain weight in the future will be factors in evaluating you for liposuction. Your cosmetic surgeon may ask you about the effects of prior weight loss on the appearance of those areas which you have indicated for contouring. He will assess the elasticity of your skin and estimate the amount of fat to be removed for optimal results. Once you and your surgeon have reached a conclusion we continue with your scheduled surgery.
