Female Surgery Vaginal reconstructive surgery aims to tighten vagina tissue and widen thin vagina membranes that have become slack or loose. Most vaginolplasty patients are married women who have damaged vagina muscles from childbirth, but more women without childbirth experience are undergoing this operation for a more satisfactory sex life. In regular term Vaginal rejuvenation is often two combined distinct surgeries of labiaplasty and vaginolplasty, to restore or enhance the vagina's cosmetic appearance or function. Labiaplasty is a labia reduction and cosmetic enhancement genital surgical procedure to reduce or change the shape of the labia minora (small lips) on the outside of the vagina. Some surgeries are needed for discomfort occurring from chronic labial irritation that develops from tight clothing, sex, sports, or other physical activities.

In Hair Transplant
Hair Transplant Male pattern baldness usually begins in an M shape. Generally, the hair on the back of the head is unaffected by male pattern baldness hence this area is used in transplantation. Hair loss is relatively common in women with about 20~30% (40% in USA) experiencing at least some degree of thinning in their lifetime. Hair loss in women is generally very gradual, with the rate accelerating during pregnancy and at menopause. They are also more easily affected by hormonal changes, medical conditions, and external factors. Men or women who have a broad or large forehead can feel self-conscious about their look. Through hair transplantation, the hairline can be designed to make the forehead narrower. There are two approaches to inserting a hair follicle. One way is through an implanter and a second approach is by first making small incisions (slit) and implanting the follicles manually. This allows for easy control of bleeding and dense packing of the graft, eventually creating much better results

01 About Anti-Aging Aging is a complicated process and each person ages very differently. The signs of aging are: pulling down, absorption, accumulation of soft tissue with a resting contraction of the facial expression muscles, and change of facial bones. 02 SMAS Face Lift This procedure is good for people with moderate to severe signs of aging. Incision site is located from the temporal hairline following the groove behind the ear. The incisional method can offer dramatic anti-aging results. By lifting the skin and managing the deep set tissue SMAS layer, the skin can be redraped giving the most effective long term results. 03 Endoscopic Forehead Lift This procedure can improve the face signs of aging such as frown lines, glabella line (in between the eyebrows) and crow’s feet at the same time while lifting the brow height. Using several small incisions 1-2cm wide along the inside the hair line, an endoscope is used to lift the soft tissue of the brow and forehead together. Absorbable fixtures (endotine) will be used for natural long term results. 04 Mini Lift This surgery is excellent for people who are beginning to notice the signs of aging but are not comfortable with a full surgery. Specialized threads are used to lift the mid and lower face leaving no visible scars. 05 Neck Lift This procedure improves the area around your neck such as wrinkles or sagging skin. A small incision is used under the chin and behind the ear to lift the skin and tightening the neck soft tissues centrally and laterally. 06 Smile Lift As one ages the corners of the mouth can sag. The reduced lip volume combined with sagging upper lip can give a gloomy appearance. Re-shaping the mouth through a small incision occurs at the corner of the mouth leaving no visible scars to resect the depressed muscles of the mouth corner and resect sagging skin. And fill lip volume using filler or autologous fat for full luscious lips. Laser treatments around the mouth are used to remove fine wrinkles that have occurred from age. 07 Buccal Fat Removal Buccal fat is the deep fat tissue in the face that provides shape contours. As one age this excess fat can start sagging which creates jowls and deep marionette lines. Removal of this fat can correct sagging jowls by using a 1.5 cm intra oral incision, the fat tissue can be removed leaving no visible scar. 08 Fat Grafting Extract unnecessary fat from abdomen or thighs using a centrifuge so that only the fat is grafted into the face. Then transfer fat into the problem areas. A fat injection can improve the overall dimension of the face which amplifies anti-aging to give you a younger looking face.

01 About Body Contouring In most cases just one procedure cannot give perfect results. Liposuction, fat grafting, and lifting can be combined giving you the figure you want. Even for people who may seem slim but have some areas of fat that are impossible to remove through exercise. 02 Flabby Arms With age, weight gain, and weight loss; people may develop stretch marks and excess fat and skin, leading to a flabbiness of the upper arms. There are two approaches used to improve the upper arm area, liposuction and arm lift. Liposuction can remove the excess fat. Arm lifting may be required if the skin is very loose and sagging. 03 Tummy Liposuction Excess fat is removed from the tummy and flank for a flat stomach. If the excess fat has created sagging skin, a tummy tuck may be required through small incisions made in the belly button, under the waistline in the front and back. Any residual scars are usually small and hidden below the underwear. 04 Tummy Tuck This procedure combines liposuction with abdominoplasty to give a slim and flat stomach. Liposuction removes excess fat while abdominoplasty corrects extra skin and muscle stretching that has resulted from pregnancy or obesity. The difference is that the incision is bigger at 20-25cm made under the waistline to remove excess fat and skin. The skin is redraped and sutured for a smooth stomach. 05 Thigh and Hip Excess fat is removed from the thigh and hip to create a slender look. Small incisions are made below the fold of the buttock, behind the knee, and inner thigh.

01 Implant Augmentation This procedure increases the breast size and creates a beautiful shape through the use of implants. Peri-areola Approach This approach makes the scar the least visible due to the incision being made in the lower part of the areola. However, it is only recommended for those with areola size 2.5cm or larger. Trans-axillary Approach This approach allows for the scar to be hidden in the natural folds in the armpit. An endoscope is used to allow for the surgeon to create room and placement of the implant safely and accurately. This procedure is especially appealing to people who do not wish to have evidence of surgery. Infra-mammary Fold Approach In Western countries, this approach is the most commonly used. An incision is made in the fold below the breast and the scar can be hidden. This procedure has faster recovery and shorter surgery time than other approaches. However, this method can show a visible scar if the lower part of the breast is exposed. 02 Fat Grafting Using the patient’s own fat, the breast can be enlarged by injecting the fat. This procedure has the benefit of reducing excess fat in other areas of the body and making your breasts larger. The breasts will have a very natural shape and feel. The main disadvantage is the limitation of how big the breasts can be made. Stem cells from the patient’s fat can also be used in order to increase the survival rate. This method allows for the patient to resume a normal life after only 2-3 days 03 Breast Reduction This procedure can reduce the volume of the breast and make for a more natural, beautiful shape. Large breasts can complicate other parts of the body such as: back pain, shoulder pain, skin problems, and other areas. By getting breast reduction, the patient can benefit from improved overall health and attractive natural breasts. 04 Nipple surgery This surgery can correct the look and shape of the nipple and areola of the patient. If the nipple is too big/long or inverted, it can be made into the ideal shape and size by removing excess nipple tissues. Also, large areola can be made smaller for better appearance. 05 Gynecomastia Some men suffer from having breasts. It lower their self-esteem and cause inconvenience. This is a common condition that occurs to men after puberty. In most cases the male breasts are a result of both breast and fat tissue. If breast tissue is not excessive then liposuction can be used to correct and make the breast smaller with non- visible scars. In some cases, there is too much breast tissue and skin, and it must be removed through periareolar incision.

01 Mandible Reduction This procedure will create a beautiful jawline by trimming or resecting the lower mandibular bone. This surgery is considered safe but the recovery time can be long due to swelling. An incision is made in the inside of the mouth from the 2nd molar to the canines. The desired shape is trimmed from the back of the jaw to the mental foramen. By removing just the outer layer of the jaw the width of the face is made more slim. The amount of trimming depends on the severity of wideness. 02 Zygoma Reduction Cheekbone reduction is a very effective way to make the face smaller and smoother. Having large cheeks can give a very strong appearance. To soften the facial features, an incision is made inside the upper part of the mouth about 4cm above the gum line. Cuts are made to the front and back of the cheekbone. Using titanium plates, the position of the bone is fixed tightly to prevent any movement. Dissolvable materials can also be used so that there is no visible plate in x-rays. 03 Chin Reduction This procedure makes broad chin and jawline smaller and sharper through T-Osteotomy or direct resection. The chin can be placed forward or backward to create proper facial profile. In T Osteotomy, incision is made inside the mouth. One horizontal and two vertical cuts are made to the bone. Another horizontal cut can be made to further reduce the length of the chin. The central bone fragment is removed and the existing bone is fixed using titanium plate and screws or dissolvable materials. The lower jawline is then trimmed to create a smooth line. This procedure is often used with Mandible Angle Resection 04 Jaw Surgery Jaw surgery involves moving the upper and lower jaw, including teeth, to create a beautifully balanced facial line. It is common for different procedure to apply depending on the position and. alignment of the teeth of the patient. Maxilla (Le Forte I Osteotomy) A Le Fort I osteotomy is the most commonly used procedure to make bone incisions in the upper jaw.This procedure is performed under general anesthesia. The operation is carried out entirely inside the mouth. A U-shaped incision is made through the gums above the upper teeth to gain access to the jawbone. The gum is then raised off the bone. The upper jaw bone is then moved into its final position (planned prior to your surgery) and held in place with tiny titanium plates and screws, which are left in place permanently. The gums are stitched back into place with dissolvable stitches. These stitches may take three to four weeks to dissolve. After the bones heal together, the jaw regains it’s normal strength. Mandible SSRO Sagittal Split Ramus Osteotomy This procedure is used to correct mandibular over and under bite. First, a horizontal cut is made on the inner side of the ramus mandibulae, xtending anterally to the anterior portion of the ascending ramus. The cut is then made inferiorly on the ascending ramus to the descending ramus, extending to the lateral border of the mandible in the area between the first and second molar. At this time, a vertical cut is made extending inferior to the body of the mandible, to the inferior border of the mandible. All cuts are made into the middle of the bone, where bone marrow is present. Then, a chisel is inserted into the pre-existed cuts and tapped gently in all areas to split the mandible of the left and right side. From here, the mandible can be moved either forwards or backwards. If sliding backwards, the distal segment must be trimmed to provide room in order to slide the mandible backwards. ASO (anterior segment osteotomy) The top and bottom first premolar on both sides of the mouth is removed along with the attached bone. The front of the upper and lower mouth is then pushed back and fixed to the jaw using titanium plates to secure it firmly. Commonly used for people with protruding mouth (bimaxillary protrusion). 05 Recessed Chin Recessed chin can also be seen with an overbite where the lower jaw is underdeveloped. The two ways are implant insertion for small chin or gliding genioplasty. Implant Insertion Surgery is done under local anesthesia so the patient will not feel any pain or discomfort. Incision is made through the mucous membrane of the mouth to the lower jawbone where a silicon implant is inserted. Sliding Genioplasty This procedure is when the jaw position and development is normal, but only the chin is recessed. A horizontal cut is made to the chin, and only the chin is moved forward. Titanium plates and screws are used to fix the chin in place. 06 Paranasal Augmentation The nasolabial groove on the sides of the nose has a sunken look. This can make your appearance look tired and older. An Incision is made inside the mouth about 1.5 to 2 cm long. An implant is inserted in the space next to the sunken area by the maxillary bone.

01 Basic Rhinoplasty Nose surgery is also known as augmentation rhinoplasty. For people with a low nose, simple rhinoplasty can raise the bridge. This procedure is often combined with other procedures to give an overall improvement. Simple rhinoplasty uses a small incision inside the nose and nasal bridge augmentation is performed using an implant or autologous tissue to raise the bridge. If required, tip-plasty using autologous cartilage can extend and reshape the tip. 02 Hooked Nose A hooked nose (aquiline nose) has a protruding bone and cartilage in the middle of the nasal bridge. This can give people a very strong or masculine impression. Hooked nose surgery smoothens out the bump for a sleek and straight nose. Often this procedure is combined with augmentation rhinoplasty and tip-plasty. 03 Long Nose A long nose is usually caused by a longer septum or a drooping nasal tip. A long nose can make the face appear elongated and throw off the harmony of one’s facial features. A long nose can be reshaped by elevating the alar cartilage, trimming the septal cartilage or a combination of the two. 04 Short Nose If one’s nasal tip is turned upward it may cause the nose to appear short, in most cases exposing the nostrils. Repositioning of the nasal tip can be done through various methods using autologous cartilage. 05 Deviated Nose A deviated nose is one that is misshaped or bent. This can cause nasal obstruction making it difficult to breath. Reshaping of the nasal bone or cartilage is performed to correct the deviation in the nose. It is important to correct the deviated nasal septum to prevent recurrence of the nose deviation. 06 Wide Nose A wide nose is caused by a wide nasal bone structure, wide nasal tip or wide nostrils. Osteotomy or alar base reduction can be used to reshape the nose making is slimmer and more attractive. The various methods used will depend on the shape of the nose: alar base reduction can be used to reduce the size of the nostrils and tip-plasty can make the tip slimmer. 07 Bulbous Tip A bulbous nose is described as being large and thick due to excess cartilage and soft tissue. Tip-plasty helps remove the excess cartilage and reshape the bluntness of the nose. This can be combined with other procedures to dramatically improve the appearance of your nose. Facial Liposuction Some people have excess fat in the face even with a slender body. Facial fat can create a double chin making your appearance older. Facial liposuction gently removes the facial fat around the jaw line. A small hole is made under the chin and behind the ear lobe leaving no visible scars. Fat tissue is initially melted using laser or ultrasound and then is removed by liposuction.

01 Double Eyelids Some people do not have a crease and feel their eyes are too small with a puffy appearance. The double fold surgery creates a crease in your upper eyelid, making the eyes bigger and brighter. There are 2 main options in making the Double Fold: Non-Incisional and Incisional. Non-Incisional involves making very small openings and using a thread to leave no visible scars for natural looking eyes. Incision is a versatile surgical method that can remove fat and control various tissues to achieve a long lasting double fold crease. 02 Epicanthoplasty Medial Epicanthoplasty is reshaping the inner corner of the eye to make the eye bigger and brighter by removing the medial epicanthal skin (Mongolian fold). Lateral Epicanthoplasty is by reshaping the outer(lateral) corner of the eye to make the eye bigger and brighter by reshaping the lateral epicanthus. Outer eye skin is opened with the mucosa is relocated to the desired position behind the skin. In addition this procedure can change the angle of the eye. 03 Ptosis Correction A weakening of the eye opening muscle (levator muscle) can cause the eyelid to droop and give a sleepy appearance. Many people with this condition tend to over use their eyebrows to open their eyes causing wrinkles and headaches. This procedure will strengthen the eye opening muscles to make it easy to open your eyes, giving a bigger and vivid appearance. 04 Lower Eyelid Surgery Eye bags cause your appearance to look much older than your age,and dark circles can give a tired look. These procedures can remove dark circles or lift eye bags that have formed with age. Transconjunctival Orbital Fat Removal People with bulging lower lid fat looks tired and older than one’s age, even if they don’t have wrinkles or skin droopiness. This option can remove excessive fat through the inside of the eyelid without leaving a scar. Using an incision on the inside surface of lower eyelid (conjunctiva), we can approach the pocket of orbital fat. After opening this pocket, removal of fat is done. Finally, incised areas are positioned precisely. Transconjunctival Orbital Fat Transposition Severe dark circles is often due to uneven disposition of orbital fat – too much in one area and not enough in another. This procedure will evenly distribute the orbital fat resulting in a brighter appearance without leaving a scar. Excess fat will also be removed to give your eyes a brighter look. Upper Blepharoplasty As one ages the skin and fat above the eye can begin to sag. This procedure removes excess fat and lifts the drooping skin from the upper portion of the eye. A full incision is used along the crease to remove excess fat and skin. The sagging tissue is corrected by lifting the remaining tissues. Lower Blepharoplasty Elasticity of skin and tension of muscle are reduced in the lower eyelid as one ages. Along with changes in the orbital fat pocket, they can create an old appearance. Lower Blepharoplasty can lift your lower eyelid by transposition and making a full incision is made just beneath the lower eyelash. Using meticulous dissection, every components of lower eyelid are exposed and corrected:transposition of orbital fat, lifting, and tightening of muscle/skin. Excessive tissue can be removed. Suturing is done along the incision.
