The benefits of eyelid surgery – blepharoplasty
Cosmetic Clinic Dubai | 20 April 2021
Whether you are looking to correct vision problems, reverse the effects of ageing or simply for cosmetic reasons, there are a wide-range of benefits of eyelid surgery.
WHY UNDERGO EYELID SURGERY?
Unfortunately, the ageing process is something that occurs in everyone, no matter how well a person may take care of themselves. Some people may experience unwanted signs of ageing as early as their 20s, while others are lucky enough to notice them many years down the line. Nevertheless, it is a natural and unavoidable occurrence.
The eyes are one of the first and most visible areas to demonstrate ageing since the collagen in the delicate skin surrounding the eyes begins to weaken earlier on and more severely than in most other areas. That being said, one of the key aims of eyelid surgery, in particular blepharoplasty, is to remove any excess skin around the eyes which causes them to appear tired, baggy and aged. After undergoing such a procedure, most patients are pleased with how much younger and more refreshed they look.
This is because the eye is constantly moving, causing loss of volume, added wrinkles, drooping and excess skin. Blepharoplasty removes that excess tissue, skin and fat in order to leave a more youthful appearance.
Look less tired
During initial consultations, many patients complain of constantly looking like they have not slept a wink in a long while, even if they always get a solid eight hours, or appearing stressed when they are not. Surgical removal of the excess eyelid skin and fat will mean a look that appears less tired since this excess skin is what contributes to under-eye bags and puffiness as we begin to age.
Patients may also choose to undergo other procedures, such as brow lift, which has a similar effect in that it aims to reduce the number of wrinkles, lines or creases present on the forehead. These are normally carried out together in order to shorten the recovery process.
Remove dark circles
There are three main causes of dark under-eye circles; the loss of volume in the tissue under the eyes, excess eyelid fat which can cause ‘bulging’, and the reduction of the pigmented eyelid skin, causing darkness beneath the eyes. The correct surgical procedures can help with these issues by removing any excess skin, sculpting and redistributing the fat, and replacing lost volume.
While eyelid surgery is most commonly used for cosmetic motives, there are frequent cases in which it is performed for health reasons. For many patients, the upper eyelid skin may droop down into their field of vision, causing sight problems, which blepharoplasty is able to fix.
Moreover, some patients may suffer from ptosis, or droopy eyelid, which is a physical condition causing the eyelids to droop lower than normal, often impairing vision. Again, a surgical procedure can be performed to correct vision problems, whilst also resulting in a younger, more refreshed appearance. Here, the upper lid is lifted and excess skin and tissue is removed in order to expand the line of sight. Many patients have found that there is a much greater level of comfort in their forehead and eyebrow area after the procedure, as they no longer have to make the effort to raise their eyelids to be able to see clearly.
Another eye condition which can be treated with eyelid surgery is that of dry eye syndrome. This is where the eyes are not able to produce enough tears, or the tears produced are evaporating too fast. However, surgery will only be carried out where dry eye is severe and other treatment methods have failed to help.
Receive a confidence boost
The eyes are a central aesthetic feature and are often the first thing somebody notices about you, which is why feeling content with the way they look is key to positive self-esteem. As such, the physical improvements resulting from cosmetic eyelid surgery and other combined procedures are immeasurable and will certainly help patients feel happier and more confident in their own skin.
Are you a suitable candidate for eyelid surgery?
Remember that Dr. Vigo will always provide an honest opinion regarding the type of surgery a patient has come in to enquire about. This means that it is not uncommon for some patients to be advised against a certain type of surgery. In any case, Dr. Vigo will go through each procedure thoroughly so that patients can make an informed decision about which type of surgery is right for them. Sometimes, non-surgical procedures, such as tear trough fillers might be are a more appropriate course of action.
Blepharoplasty is one of the most common cosmetic facial procedures, carried out to improve the appearance of the eye area. Most people seek blepharoplasty surgery to make their eyes appear less tired or to improve their symmetry. Knowing what to expect after the procedure is important and can make the process less overwhelming.
It might seem a little scary, but once you wake up from your blepharoplasty surgery, the first thing you will notice is that your vision is blurry. This is nothing to worry about and does not mean the surgery has been unsuccessful, but rather because of a thick antibiotic ointment which is applied to the eye area to stop the surface area from becoming dry. This should be used for one week post-surgery, four times a day, on the inside of the eye and the wounds.
To prevent the eye from becoming dry, artificial tear drops are prescribed. For 24-48 hours after the surgery, ice packs should be used and patients should also sleep in a sitting up position, using several pillows to reduce the swelling by preventing fluid from accumulating.
Absolutely avoid any strenuous activities, such as heavy lifting or exercising for at least 7 days into the blepharoplasty recovery period. However, patients need to be mobile right away, so we recommend walking at a gentle pace to begin with.
For the first couple of weeks it is recommended that dark sunglasses be worn to protect the eyes from becoming irritated by wind or sun. We also suggest taking regular naps as the eyes can become tired easily during the recovery period.
Is there any bruising?
Moderate swelling and bruising is very normal, though the severity of it will differ significantly from person to person. This should decrease within just 1-2 weeks if you have had an upper eyelid blepharoplasty, whereas an upper and lower eyelid blepharoplasty takes 2-4 weeks.
After this time it is generally not at all noticeable that surgery has recently taken place. In a few patients, this swelling and bruising can last for a longer period of time.
Bandages are not normally necessary during the blepharoplasty recovery period, though dressings tend to be placed over the eyes to reduce swelling after the procedure.
Will I be in pain?
This is not a painful procedure and blepharoplasty recovery is relatively easy. Any pain following surgery will usually be slight and can be managed with the appropriate painkillers. These should be distributed to you after the procedure. Most patients will also be able to get up and walk around as normal on the same evening, or the morning after the surgery.
HOW LONG DOES LIP AUGMENTATION LAST?
Cosmetic Clinic Dubai | 16 April 2021
Even full, voluptuous lips can lose some of their volume due to the process of aging. Lip augmentation cosmetic surgery can help create a more youthful facial appearance and offer enhanced confidence to patients who have experienced a loss of fullness in their lips.
Treatment options such as lip augmentation filler injections, lip implant plastic surgery, and fat transfer are available to patients seeking lip enhancement.
Sustainability of Outcomes with Lip Augmentation Dermal Fillers
Over the years, there have been significant advancements in lip dermal filler injections. But these solutions do not offer permanent results. Lip filler longevity depends on the type of filler used and the body’s response to it.
Lip fillers, for example, will last longer in younger individuals due to adequate collagen and hyaluronic acid production to support and enhance the outcomes. On the other hand, older adults will need routine treatments such as Restylane. Some of the commonly used filler injectables are:
For lip augmentation, Juvederm is used mainly to fill wrinkles around the mouth. The Juvederm gel is hypoallergenic. It creates instant fullness in the treated site. The results are natural looking and can last up to one year.
Restylane comprises hyaluronic acid (HA). This dermal filler provides fullness and a natural brightness to the tissue. The outcomes last between six and 12 months. After that, the body absorbs the HA through its natural processes.
HA is also the primary ingredient in Perlane. This helps Perlane outcomes appear natural and sustain for an extended period. The outcomes of this dermal filler can sustain between six months to one year.
The patient will have to undergo an allergy test before receiving collagen-based lip fillers as animal-based fillers can lead to an allergic reaction. Human collagen-based injections are also available. The outcomes sustain for approximately three months in both cases.
Fat transfer for lip augmentation involves the removal of fat from one area of the body and its use for lip enhancement. The fat does not create an allergic response as it comes from the patient’s own body. The results last for between three to six months. After that, the patient may require a touch-up procedure.
In general, dermal fillers can sustain in the lips for between three months to a year depending on the type of filler administered.
Am I suitable for Breast Enlargement?
Cosmetic Clinic Dubai | 13 April 2021
Breast enlargement has remained one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures across the globe for years. Not only has it become more widely accepted and relatively easily available, but plastic surgeons have also made great strides in the way they are able to lift and shape the breasts.
While the decision to get breast implants is highly personal and can be extremely rewarding, patients should always perform their due diligence in determining whether or not this procedure is a good fit for them and whether they can make for good candidates.
Who is a good candidate for breast enlargement?
There are several criteria that patients should meet in order for a plastic surgeon to classify you as a good candidate for breast enlargement. In general, you should be in good physical health. This means no active infections, untreated cancer or serious illnesses. If you have medical issues, it’s important to discuss them with your surgeon so that he or she can help you decide whether or not breast implant surgery is suitable for you.
If your breasts are sagging, flattened, elongated, asymmetrical or lacking adequate cleavage or volume, there is a good chance that you’re an excellent candidate for this surgery.
Most surgeons prefer that you do not smoke or consume significant amounts of alcohol.
Because this surgery can permanently alter your appearance, it’s important for you to be in a healthy frame of mind when you decide on this surgery.
While this is a surgery that will change how you look, it’s important to remember that it cannot fix body image issues or give you a wildly different appearance. You should maintain realistic expectations and listen to your surgeon’s honest assessment of your goals.
The best candidate for breast augmentation understands the risks as well as the rewards. The surgery is generally considered safe, and implants are approved, but with any surgery, there are some risks.
You understand that breast enhancement should be done strictly for yourself and because you believe it will increase your own happiness or confidence. You should never get cosmetic work done because someone else wants you to.
You should have the ability to properly rest and recover post-surgery. You will not be able to perform certain tasks or do any heavy lifting, so it’s important for you to have help in place.
Who is NOT a candidate for breast enlargement?
Generally speaking, anyone who is in reasonably good mental and physical health can be candidates for breast implants. However, you are likely not a good candidate for this surgery if:
You’re pregnant or breastfeeding.
You have breast cancer or an abnormal mammogram.
You’re ill or battling an infection.
You have unrealistic expectations for post-surgery results.
Though most women can qualify for breast implants, it’s vitally important that you are open and honest with your surgeon during your consultation. Even if breast implants are not right for you, he or she may be able to recommend an alternative course of action to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
Tummy Tuck – A Flatter & Firmer Abdomen
Tummy Tuck Dubai | 10 April 2021
After pregnancy or weight loss, excess skin and fat can distort the appearance of the abdomen. In particular, many women find that after their second child or after bearing twins, their muscles and skin do not return to their original appearance secondary to repeated stretch of the abdomen. The abdominoplasty, or “tummy tuck” procedure, creates a flatter, firmer abdomen by removing excess fat and skin, and tightening the abdominal muscles. You are a good candidate for a tummy tuck if you are at a stable weight and are physically healthy, you have realistic expectations, and you do not smoke.
ANATOMY OF THE ABDOMEN
The abdominal wall consists of skin, fat, and muscle. The rectus abdominis muscles, which form the “six pack” of muscles on the abdomen, are covered by a firm sheath called the rectus fascia. This fascial layer frequently weakens and stretches out with pregnancy and weight gain. As a result, once a patient loses weight or has her children, she may be left with laxity of the abdominal wall. During surgery, the fascial layer over the rectus abdominis muscles is tightened, and the excess skin and fat are removed.
The abdominoplasty procedure is performed with a horizontal incision in the lower abdomen within the bikini line. In patients who have undergone a prior C-section, the incision can be made in the same location and extended to the sides. The rectus abdominis muscles of the abdomen are tightened, and the excess skin and fat are trimmed and redraped. Most abdominoplasty surgeries require repositioning of the umbilicus, or navel through a second incision. In the “mini” abdominoplasty procedure, lower abdominal muscle tightening with fat and skin removal are performed through a limited horizontal bikini incision only, without repositioning of the navel. The resulting scar is usually low on the abdomen, and therefore can be concealed within most bathing suits and clothing. Small drain tubes are placed with both techniques.
Liposuction is sometimes performed in conjunction with tummy tuck surgery to contour the flanks. Some patients wish to undergo simultaneous breast surgery to lift, add volume, or both. The combination of tummy tuck surgery and breast augmentation or lift surgery is commonly referred to as a “mommy makeover” procedure.
Additional procedures incur additional operating time, anesthesia, and surgical risks.
SURGERY AND ANESTHESIA
The surgery lasts 2 – 2.5 hours, and is performed under general anesthesia. Many patients worry about the risk of general anesthesia, but it is very safe and it assures that you will be completely comfortable during surgery. Prior to surgery you will be required to obtain medical photographs, routine bloodwork, and in some cases preoperative clearance. The evening prior to surgery, you should not eat or drink anything after midnight. This ensures that you will have an empty stomach prior to surgery, which is very important for your anesthesiologist to care for you safely. You will need to have a responsible adult available to escort you home after surgery.
Following surgery, you will awaken in the recovery area. Once you are fully alert, you will be transported to the stepdown area where you will be given something to drink and the to eat. You will have two drains and a surgical garment placed at the conclusion of the procedure. The nurses in the recovery area will demonstrate how to empty and record the output from your drains. A responsible adult will need to be available to escort you home.
Patients are seen in the office 3 or 4 days following surgery. At that time your drains will be removed and you will be replaced into your surgical garment. Most sutures placed will dissolve on their own. The surgical garment should be worn for the following 4 weeks
Walking is permitted the day after surgery, but strenuous activity and heavy lifting are limited until four weeks following surgery. Most patients do not complain of severe pain following this surgery, but note that the abdomen feels “tight”, as if they have performed many sit-ups. Pain medication is prescribed for any discomfort. Swelling will be present for the initial 2-3 months after surgery, and the final results are typically seen 3-6 months after surgery. The scar will continue to fade and soften for up to one year following surgery, although it will never completely disappear.
WHAT A TUMMY TUCK CANNOT DO
A tummy tuck is not a substitute for weight loss or exercise. If you have ongoing weight loss, or are planning to become pregnant, you should delay your surgery. A tummy tuck cannot correct stretch marks, but it will remove the skin beneath the umbilicus. Stretch marks above this level some- times appear lighter after surgery, but they will not disappear.

Tummy tuck – Your 6-month planning guide
Tummy Tuck Dubai | 7 April 2021
An abdominoplasty, better known as a tummy tuck, is a surgical procedure that requires careful planning and meticulous follow-up care for the best results. Knowing the steps to take before your abdominoplasty will ensure a better recovery process.
Ideally, you’ll have several months in advance to prepare for your tummy tuck surgery. I recommend most individuals give themselves a full six months to prepare, giving them time to find the right surgeon, achieve or maintain their ideal weight and get a plan for aftercare in place.
Some people may not need the full six months of prep before their surgery, and that’s okay. You’ll still want to make sure that you’ve taken sufficient time to research, plan and prepare. The better prepared you are for the big day of surgery, the better your results will be. Use the information below as your guide to planning your tummy tuck.
4-6 months before surgery
As soon as you start thinking about a tummy tuck, it’s time to get serious about your diet and exercise habits. Eating well, drinking more water and staying active should be your focal point. If you smoke, start the process of quitting and limit your alcohol intake if you drink. These two factors can affect the way your body heals and fights off infection. Stress management is also a good thing to implement as chronic stress can affect your health and immune response. In this timeframe, start doing your research and locating plastic surgeons for consultations. Look for expert plastic surgeons with experience in the tummy tuck procedure.
4 months before surgery
By this time, you should be closing in on your ideal weight and fitness level. This is going to help the surgeons you talk with to evaluate your candidacy for surgery and also puts you in a good position to recover quickly. Around 4 months before you want to have surgery, you should begin scheduling consultation and meeting with me. You will feel comfortable discussing your goals, expectations and concerns, as well as feel confident that my recommendations align with what you envision.
3 months before surgery
During your third month of preparation, after you’ve booked surgery, you should be scheduling leave from work, making arrangements for child and animal care and setting up your support system to help with transportation and care during the post-surgery recovery phase. This is something you and your surgeon should discuss and prepare for. By now, you should completely quit smoking. You are continuing with your health and wellness regimen and hopefully feeling great about life and excited for the transformation ahead.
1 month before surgery
The last few weeks before your surgery should be used to stock up on supplies needed for recovery and finalizing the details of your procedure. Staying as comfortable as possible in the initial stage of recovery is going to be your ultimate goal for home care, so now is the time to begin assembling your supplies. I will provide you with a list of supplies to buy. Some extra supplies that people have found to be useful and aid in the recovery process are:
– Extra pillows
– Gauze pads
– Comfortable clothing and underwear that is easy to remove
– Ice packs and over-the-counter medication for discomfort
– Compression clothing if prescribed
Create a meal prep plan to make and freeze food for later. Eliminating the worry of what to eat is going to reduce stress, keep you from grabbing unhealthy foods and help you maintain your new improved eating habits.
On the day of surgery, dress comfortably and make sure you’ve followed the pre-surgery checklist I provided. You should have time to check in with your surgeon on the day of your procedure, so if you have any last-minute questions, make sure to bring those along too.
Breast Augmentation Dubai – The Benefits
Breast Augmentation Dubai | 1 April 2021
Women choose primary breast augmentation surgery to increase the size and proportion of their breast(s). In addition, women choose revision-augmentation surgery (replacement of an existing breast implant) to correct or improve the result of a primary augmentation surgery. According to literature reports, most women who have undergone breast implant surgery have reported high levels of satisfaction with their body image and the shape, feel and size of their implants.67 In Sientra’s Clinical Study, most primary and revision-augmentation patients were pleased with the results of their implant surgery.
The results showed that most women who underwent primary or revision-augmentation with the Study Implants felt their breast implants made them feel more feminine and more attractive. In addition, the majority of these women indicated that their breast implants made them feel better about themselves. For more information on the benefits of breast augmentation with Sientra’s Implants based on the results of the Clinical Study, refer to Section 8.3 of this brochure.
Preparing For Breast Augmentation Dubai With Silicone Gel Breast Implants
Deciding to have breast augmentation with implants is an important personal decision that has both benefits and risks. You should decide whether it is the right choice for you after discussing all the options with your plastic surgeon and any other doctors who are treating you. This section will give you the information you need to make an informed choice and help you make a number of decisions that have to be made before your surgery.
Should I Have Breast Augmentation Dubai?
Breast augmentation with Silicone Gel Breast Implants
is one option that may be available to you if you wish to enhance the appearance of your breasts. A breast revision-augmentation surgery may be appropriate if you have had
a breast augmentation with implants but need to complete, improve upon, or correct a part of that first surgery (called the primary augmentation). Whether breast augmentation is right for you depends on many things; some of them are personal. You should take into account your medical condition, general health, lifestyle, how you feel emotionally, and your breast size and shape before surgery, as well as your hopes for breast size and shape after surgery. All of these things will affect the outcome of your surgery. Discuss your goals for breast augmentation with your doctors.
You may also wish to consult your family and friends and breast implant support groups, to help you learn about the options and decide. Many women who choose implants as part of their augmentation say their augmented breast(s) help them feel more self-confident, feel better about their bodies, and/or give them a greater feeling of well-being. Other women are not satisfied with their implants because of complications, like capsular contracture, rupture, or pain.
Breast Augmentation Dubai With Implants – Understanding The Procedure The surgical procedure for breast augmentation consists of choices you and your surgical team (surgeon(s), nurses, anesthetist, etc.) will make as you plan your surgery. These choices include:
• The surgical setting (where the surgery will be performed, for example, in a hospital, surgery center, or doctor’s office),
• The type of anesthesia used,
• The location of the incisions made to insert the Implants,
• How the Implants will be placed in your breasts
(subglandular or submuscular), and
• Whether your existing skin and/or breast tissue can
Breast Augmentation Dubai
Each of these is discussed in the sections that follow. The type of procedure that is available to you depends on your medical situation, breast shape and size, general health, lifestyle, and goals for the augmentation. Breast augmentation with Silicone Gel Breast Implants can usually be completed in a single surgery.
SURGICAL SETTING Breast augmentation surgery can be performed in a hospital, private surgery center, clinic, or in the surgeon’s office. Be sure you are comfortable with the location of the surgery before it happens. If you are considering having surgery in a private surgery center or office, you may want to see the area where the surgery will be performed.
ANESTHESIA Breast implant surgery may be performed under general or local anesthesia. All anesthetics carry some risk. Discuss the risks and benefits of the anesthetic your surgeon and anesthetist recommend for you before the surgery. INCISION SITES Figure 2 shows the three incision sites
(location of cut through which the breast implant is inserted in your body) usually used for breast augmentation surgery:
• Inframammary – the most common incision, made under your breast at the crease where the breast meets the body,
• Periareolar – an incision is made around the nipple, and
• Transaxillary – the incision is made in the armpit, which gives the surgeon easier access to the chest muscle.
Breast Augmentation Dubai
When you and your doctor decide what you want your breasts to look like after augmentation, your doctor can help you choose the right implant to get the effect you want. Your body type, height, and weight will be factors your surgeon considers to help you achieve the best result. IMPLANT SIZE, SHAPE AND SURFACE Your surgeon will examine your breast tissue and skin to figure out if you will have enough to cover the implant. It is possible that you
will not have enough skin and/or breast tissue to cover the implant you desire. In this case, you may be offered several choices. Breast implants that are too big for the amount of breast tissue or skin can cause problems: they can actually speed up the effects of gravity; your breasts may droop or sag earlier with implants that are too large. Implants that are too large can also cause implant extrusion, skin wrinkling, infection, and hematoma.
You may be able to feel folds on the implant created by it being squeezed too tightly by the surrounding tissue and skin. If you do not have enough skin, and it is stretched too thin over the implant, you may be able to feel or see the edges of the implant under your skin surface after surgery. As shown in Figure 4, the Implants come with either a smooth shell or a textured shell; you should speak with your surgeon to find out whether he or she recommends smooth or textured implants for you.

THE GREAT BENEFITS OF BOTOX® TREATMENT
BOTOX DUBAI | 27 March 2021
Wrinkles are a seemingly unavoidable part of ageing. As we mature, our skin becomes less elastic, drier and thinner. Skin loses the ability to protect itself against damage and that is why once you reach a certain age you have the all too familiar lines, creases and wrinkles on your skin, which is particularly noticeable on your face.
It only takes seven seconds to make a first impression, and having a more youthful, revitalised appearance can boost confidence and improve professional performance, both at work and in social situations.
Although wrinkles are not worrying, they do make you look and then in turn feel older than you really want. There are many different creams and surgical procedures that have been developed to help; however Botox® is probably the most commonly available and popular non-surgical wrinkle treatment. As it does involve injections being applied to the muscles in your face, it is entirely natural for you to have some reservations about whether Botox® treatment is right for you or not. This is why, to help you make that decision, we have put together a list of the most compelling benefits of going forward with the treatment.
Botox® treatment does not require any surgery and therefore you do not need to worry about incisions, stitches or even scarring. It is the perfect alternative to going under the knife and having plastic surgery, as it is completely non-invasive. In fact, you do not need to even go to a hospital at any point for Botox® injections.
There is therefore less complications, and it will disrupt your life less than some other more intensive procedures and treatments.
While the anti-ageing benefits of Botox® are probably the reason you are here in the first place, they should still be highlighted. If you find looking in the mirror is becoming more disheartening, and you notice more lines and wrinkles appearing, there are options such as Botox® to make a quick improvement.The injections reduce the appearance of wrinkles by relaxing your facial muscles which gives your skin a smoother look.
What if you decide you do not like the results of Botox®? The great thing about this type of treatment is that although it often has striking and very noticeable effects, Botox® differs to plastic surgery in that the treatment does not give you permanent results. It lasts for approximately 4 to 6 months and if you like the results, you only need to have the injections two to three times a year; if you don’t like the results, the effects will wear off.

What are the advantages of a breast uplift?
BREAST AUGMENTATION DUBAI | 25 March 2021
Sagging, or droopy breasts, which result from the relaxation of ligaments, can affect a woman’s self-esteem and resulting in a negative body image. It can make you look and feel older than you’d like. Breast uplift, Breast lift or Mastopexy surgery can offer you a great way to regain your body confidence, giving you fuller-looking breasts and correcting their positioning on your body for a more uplifted appearance.
A Mastopexy procedure can give your body back its youth and create firmer breasts.
What type of breast issue do you have?
Breast size, shape and sag: If your breasts are empty or saggy, or you are unhappy with the shape of your breasts or the position of your nipple, a Breast Uplift or Mastopexy may be the most suitable option for you.
Breast volume loss and tone: Sometimes the problem isn’t size, but the loss of volume and tone. If your breasts appear ‘empty’ or simply make you feel old and unattractive, a breast lift, also known as a Mastopexy, can restore and rejuvenate this part of your body.
Breast skin, large areolas and nipple position: Stretched and thin skin, overly large areolas and downward-pointing nipples may affect how you feel about the look of your breasts, something a Mastopexy can effectively treat.
Combined breast procedures may help?It is very common for an uplift procedure to be carried out in conjunction with Breast Augmentation, resulting in fuller, correctly positioned breasts. We also offer Breast Auto-Augmentation which is a great option for patients who are looking to remove their breast implants but are worried about losing too much volume. Your breast surgeon will use your existing breast tissue to help reshape the bust to give you fullness in the upper chest along with an uplifted appearance too.
Cheek Fillers – Restore lost volume & define the cheek contour
FILLERS IN DUBAI | 21 March 2021
To look younger: fat loss in the cheek can make you look gaunt and older
To restore cheek volume: weight loss can cause this or having a naturally slim face
High cheek bone definition: to improve definition to the face and facial balance
To lift the jaw line: creating a more youthful look
To lift the mid face: to improve a sunken look caused by age or weight loss
When you attend clinic for your cheek filler treatment, some patients decide to have numbing cream applied to the area being treated before their treatment. If this is the case your practitioner will allow 5-10 minutes for the effects of this to work. Dermal cheek filler can be placed at 3 sites within the cheek area which includes the temple, zygomatic malar and sub malar region. These areas run from the outer corner of your eyes down to your mid cheek. Dermal cheek filler is usually placed above the cheek bone to achieve more definition or into the soft tissue / fat pads within the cheek to increase the volume and help to lift the cheek.
Additional filler may be used across the cheek to help volumise the area and enhance the contour of the cheek.
Dermal Cheek Filler is suitable for improving;
Volume loss in the cheeks
Hollow or Sunken Cheeks
Lifting the jaw line
Fine lines and wrinkles
Chin Filler is an advanced Dermal Filler technique and as such should only be carried out by highly experienced medical practitioners.

Looking at Some of the Benefits of Botox
BOTOX DUBAI | 18 March 2021
Although Botox is most commonly used for aesthetic improvements, the benefits of Botox now go further than vanity and for this reason – along with the fact that Botox is increasingly popular for the patient.
Whilst the upper face is most commonly treated with Botox injections, it can still be used in the lower face, around the mouth, nasal area, chin or jaw for example. The difference in treating the lower face though is in the fact that the lower facial muscles are much more complex and so there is a much higher risk of Botox being problematic when used below the eyes. Botox can also be used in some areas of the neck.
What many people do not realise however is that Botox can now be used to treat medical problems that aren’t completely aesthetic. Botox has been used successfully to treat hyperhidrosis – or excessive sweating – for years now and is bringing relief to thousands of people who suffer from the embarrassing problem. When Botox is injected in the underarm or palm it reduces the activity of the glands that cause the body to perspire for a period of six months to a year.
Another Botox miracle has been found in the fact that Botox can ease the symptoms of migraines and tension headaches. When the muscles in the forehead are injected with Botox, it reduces muscle activity as well as the body’s perception of pain in that area and this minimises the sensitivity of migraine and tension headache sufferers to their symptoms. Botox has also been found to help various eye conditions, anal fissures, spasms of the face or neck and a number of other conditions caused by over-zealous muscle activity.
As with other drugs it is without doubt that more benefits of Botox will be discovered eventually. Therefore making Botox readily available in more places is going to be of massive benefit not only for the patient but for the service provider too. Botox training can provide medical professionals with everything they need to know about adding Botox to their treatment list and will give the consumer more and more options when it comes to finding a treatment provider that can offer Botox in a safe and trustworthy environment.
