I. AESTHETIC SURGERY
Hair is the symbol of beauty and virility. Hair loss has great impact on psycology and the personality of a person. There are several ways to treat hair loss but the permanent method is hair transplant surgery.
Follicular unit transplant (FUT/Strip surgery)
This gives a natural looking anterior hair line. Hair from the back of the scalp is taken along with the skin and the follicular units are separated under magnification. These units are implanted in the bald areas. The skin at the back is closed primarily by suturing. Earlier the donor site scars were bad but with trichophytic closure hair grows through the scar and the scar is hidden.
Follicular unit extraction (FUE)
In this method, Follicular units are extracted directly from the scalp using motorised/manual punches. The size of the punch ranges from 0.8mm to 1.2mm. Advantage is no preparations of the follicles are required and they are implanted straight away. There is no donor site incision or suturing.
FUT vs FUE- Both FUT and FUE give the same cosmetic appearance. The difference is the harvesting technique. The implantation method is same in both the techniques. Both procedures are done under local anaesthesia.
No hospitalisation is required as the entire procedure is done under local anaesthesia. Medications are only for 4-5 days. Head bath is allowed after 4 days. In FUT donor site sutures are removed after 10 days.
Complications :- Infection, epidermal cysts formations are rare. The scabs formation is rare if so it may clear off within 2 weeks. One must not pull the scabs away as the transplanted follicles may come off.
The shaft of transplanted hair usually fall off after 3 weeks, leaving the root in place. The hairs start to grow from these roots, giving a natural appearance to the patient. The result will be evident within 6 to 8 months.
All the above problems are addressed by rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure to modify (improve or correct) the appearance of the nose. Rhinoplasty is the commonest surgical procedure done on the face.Get the best treatment for Rhinoplasty at Patna Plastic Surgery Clinic .
Rhinoplasty involves correcting the skeletal architecture of the nose. One may sometimes need to use the cartilage harvested from the ear or ribs during rhinoplasty. After rhinoplasty the patient will have a splint on the nose for eight days. There will be some swelling in the nose after the surgery, which will settle in a few weeks time. The patient has to avoid vigorous physical exercise for a month after surgery.
It can be corrected with a minimal invasive procedure of Liposuction + Gland excision technique. The patient has to avoid strenuous exercise involving the shoulder for a month following the surgery.
An incision is made in the skin crease below the panty line. The muscles are tightened, the excess skin is removed and liposuction is done to contour the abdomen. Often the patient will also have excess fat producing the tires and banana rolls in the back. This is also addressed along with the abdominoplasty by liposuction to give the patient a shapely torso.
Liposuction is commonly used for correcting-
1. Double chin
2. Tires in the back
3. Banana rolls
4. Reduce the size of the buttocks
5. Saddle bags
6. Shape of the thighs
7. Love handles
8. Reduce and sculpt the tummy
1. Lines and creases develop in the neck.
2. A double chin is formed.
3. The tight jaw line is lost and jowls develop.
4. The cheeks sag or hollow out.
5. The eyes look tired.
6. The eye brows start to sag.
Friends often tell you that you look tired even though you are not tired. Surgical facial rejuvenation techniques address these problems and give you a fresh look. After the surgery you often get to appear about ten years younger. The techniques are aimed at long lasting results.
Fat is harvested by liposuction from the abdomen, thigh etc., processed and then re injected in a specialized way into the face so as to give a more full and youthful appearance.
The chin may appear wide and less prominent or may be very prominent. This is corrected by genioplasty. This may involve remodeling the bone or use of implants.
Double chin often gives a disgusting look. Correction would involve liposuction and also muscle tightening procedure.
• Breast Augmentation
• Mastopexy (lift)
• Breast Reduction
• Male Breast
• Axillary Breast
Many women are unhappy when their breasts are very small. Sometimes the breasts can be atropic and empty after pregnancy. The breasts can be augmented and made fuller by breast augmentation. The most popular way of doing this is by using breast implant. However in selected patients breast augmentation can be done using one’s own fat (fat injection).
Brest augmentation can be done through:
1. Infra mammary incision: An insignificant 5 cms scar is made in the skin crease under the breast.
2. Axillary incision: The scar is made in the axilla(armpit)
3. Areolar incision: The scar is made at the junction between the skin and the areola.
The implant may be placed sub mammary or sub facial or sub muscular or in a dual plane depending on the case.
• Lip reduction
• Lip Augmentation
Thick lips can be made thinner by lip reduction surgery. The surgery is done under local anesthesia. There will be swelling of the lips following surgery which will settle in a few weeks time.
Thin lips can be made thicker making them more attractive. This can be achieved in different ways. Surgical correction would involve fat grafting, or tissue augmentation. The same can be achieved non surgically using fillers.
• Ptosis surgery (Sleepy or droopy eyes)
As we get older wrinkles forms in the forehead and the eyebrows sag. This often gives the patient a tired and sometimes angry look. The problem is taken care by a brow lift. The scar following a brow lift is hidden and hence not visible to another person.
As we get older our eyes look tired. We develop bags in the upper and lower eyelids. The upper and lower eye lids may sag and give the face a tired look. The problem can be sorted out by blephoroplasty. This involves removing the excess fat, excision of the loose skin, tightening the muscles etc.
The procedure can be done under local or general anesthesia. The incisions are made in the skin crease area which makes the scar insignificant. The excess fat is removed. In selected cases the muscles need to be tightened.
There can be some amount of skin discoloration and puffiness of the eyes following the surgery. This will settle in a few weeks time.
• Ear Hole Correction
Position, shape and size of the ears have a profound effect in the appearance of a person. A very common problem is prominent or protruding ears. These are called as bat ears. The ears appear to stick out. Correction of the same is called otoplasty. The surgery is done under by making an incision behind the ear and correcting the deformity in the cartilage. After this procedure the patient is often advised to wear a head band for a few weeks to avoid complications.
Ear Hole Correction
Often the piercing in the ear becomes a large hole from repeated use of ear rings. This may also sometimes affect the shape of the earlobe. The correction is done under local anesthesia and the patient can wear ear rings immediately after the surgery.
Botox injection is a very popular non surgical facial rejuvenation technique. However the results of this injection are temporary and one may need to take repeated injections. Botox injection helps to reduce or smoothen out the wrinkles in the forehead, crow’s feet in the sides of the eyes etc. Botox injection is an excellent way to correct masseteric hypertrophy. Masseteric hypertrophy gives the patient a square face. Injection of the botox can give a beautiful oval face.
Commercially available fillers can be used to smoothen out irregularities in the face and also to give a youthful appearance.
Hymenoplasty (Virginity Surgery)
Hymen is a mucosal membrane at the junction of vaginal introitus and canal, with a central opening for passage of menstrual blood. It is considered a sign of virginity in females. It can break due to several reasons, intercourse being the most common.
Hymenoplasty surgery restores the integrity of the hymen to the natural virgin looks. In cooperative patients, it can be done done under local anaesthesia and patient can be discharged 2-3 hours after surgery. After operation, absolute bed rest is not required and it takes 2 weeks for the hymen to soften & acquire natural features.
Complete Genital Rejevunation
Along with hymenoplasty, mons vaginal lift, tightening of vaginal canal, fat grafting of vaginal lips, trimming of labia majora may be needed for a complete genital rejevunation.
II . RECONSTRUCTIVE SURGERY
Flap surgery is needed in case of complex limb injuries. Tissue from adjacent part or distant body parts are mobilized to be used as a flap to cover exposed bones and other vital structures.
Cysts are fluid filled swellings which may occur anywhere on the body. It may result in cosmetic disfigurement or may get infected. These can be treated by excision & primary closure.
