Your surgeon will explain how to prepare for your operation. For example, if you smoke you will be asked to stop up to eight weeks before your surgery. Smoking increases your risk of getting a chest and wound infection, which can significantly slow your recovery. Coughing from a chest infection will make recovery much more painful. Smoking also reduces the amount of blood that reaches your skin, which means your wounds may heal more slowly.

Dr. Vigo may also advise you to:

– lose excess weight – you should be as close to the ideal weight for your height as possible before your operation

– stop taking the contraceptive pill four to six weeks before your operation, to reduce the chances of a blood clot (thrombosis) – make sure you use an alternative method of contraception

You have tummy tuck surgery under a general anaesthetic. This means you’ll be asleep during the operation. Before a general anaesthetic, you are normally asked not to eat or drink for six hours beforehand. Your surgeon or anaesthetist will give you specific advice on what you may or may not eat or drink and for how long before the operation.

Your surgeon will make sure you understand what will happen before, during and after your operation. They’ll also explain what to expect when you wake up and what level of discomfort or pain you might have. This is your opportunity to ask any remaining questions you have about the risks, benefits and alternatives to the procedure. This will help you to be informed, so you can give your consent for the operation to go ahead. You’ll be asked to sign a consent form. Your surgeon may ask you to wear compression stockings from the time of your operation until you are fully up and about again. This helps to prevent blood clots forming in the veins in your legs.

Botox Dubai | Anti-wrinkle Treatments in Dubai

Botox Dubai | 25 May 2021

Botox treatment is administered through a series of precise and formulated injection points. The product is introduced to the face via ultra-fine microneedles. They are specially-designed to reduce the pain of the injection and to make your treatment as comfortable and stress-free as possible. We do, however, provide numbing cream for patients, if requested.

The wrinkles injections themselves usually take a matter of minutes, but we may wish to monitor you for a brief period after your treatment, or consult you before treatment if it is your first time. This is to ensure that you get the right treatment for you, and that your safety is upheld at all times.

There are many different uses for Botox, including for hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), and it is also used to treat cerebral palsy within children. It is incredibly safe and has lots of clinical studies and trials behind it to back its efficacy. For cosmetic treatment, botulinum toxin is used is small doses to temporarily relax facial muscles and prevent overuse. This in time will smooth facial lines and wrinkles and give a rejuvenated result.

WHAT BREAST AUGMENTATION SURGERY CAN DO?

Breast Augmentation Dubai | 20 May 2021

Breast augmentation, sometimes referred to as a “boob job” by patients, involves using breast implants or fat transfer to increase the size of your breasts. This procedure can also restore breast volume lost after weight reduction or pregnancy, achieve a more rounded breast shape or improve natural breast size asymmetry.

– Increase fullness and projection of your breasts

– Improve balance of breast and hip contours

– Enhance your self-image and self-confidence

Breast augmentation is a deeply personal procedure, and it’s important that you’re doing it for yourself and not for someone else, even if that person has offered to pay for it. Patient satisfaction is high, specifically when they want the procedure themselves.

A tummy tuck surgery is not a good alternative to diet and exercise

Abdominoplasty Dubai | 15 May 2021

Sometimes, a healthy diet and regular exercise routine just aren’t enough when it comes to achieving the slimmer, more toned midsection you desire. Despite counting calories and spending long hours in gym, many women and men find that the abdomen and surrounding areas remain resistant to change, which is often a discouraging reality. In several instances, the reason for this lack of toning and refinement has to do with the presence of excess skin and/or stretched abdominal musculature, both of which cannot be fully improved with diet and exercise alone. This is particularly common among women who have had one or more pregnancies, as well as individuals who have lost a significant amount of weight.

For men and women struggling to attain a firmer, more youthful-looking midsection, abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) can often provide the following benefits:

A reduction in excess abdominal skin and localized fat pockets (via liposuction)

Tightening of loose and/or stretched abdominal muscles

Smoothing and tightening of skin in the lower stomach and abdomen

An improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe stretch marks

A correction of hernias near the bellybutton

A more toned and slender abdominal region and waistline

In the end, none of this is to say that tummy tuck surgery is a good alternative to diet and exercise – it should certainly not be viewed this way. However, when combined with a nutritious diet and routine exercise, abdominoplasty may be able to help you address the final concerns that are keeping you from achieving your desired figure.

Who is a good candidate for breast enlargement?

Cosmetic Clinic Dubai | 10 May 2021

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.

Some of the most popular areas to treat with Botox

Botox Dubai | 7 May 2021

Some of the most popular areas to treat with Botox include:

GLABELLA

The glabella (“Elevens”) refers to the small area of the forehead between the eyebrows. As we often use this muscle to create expressions, it can mean some of our most prominent wrinkles and grooves are formed in this area. Relaxing the muscle and the tension in this area can dramatically reduce lines and soften your facial features.

FOREHEAD

Usually an area treated in combination with the glabella and the crow’s feet, the forehead is a problem area for many. As we age, the facial muscles and the fat pads in our face shift and migrate down the face, making us look older, tired and quite sad looking. A small amount of Botox to this area can help lift the brow line and reduce the weight pulling the features down.

CROW’S FEET

Formed at the corners of our eyes, crow’s feet are often a bugbear of our patients’. While in some cases we can remove these lines completely, most – at the very least – will notice a softer and younger appearance around the eyes after Botox.

Botox can also be used for Hyperhidrosis

Just as migraines dictate their sufferers’ lives, hyperhidrosis is a medical condition that controls many aspects of day-to-day activities. Excessive sweating is often embarrassing and inconvenient for people, but with regular Botox treatment, you can start to manage the issue and considerably reduce the amount you sweat.

Ideal candidates for dermal fillers

Fillers in Dubai | 1 May 2021

Today both injectables and fillers are commonplace treatments to eliminate facial wrinkles. However, unlike injectables which temporarily paralyse active muscle, fillers are used to plump the problem area to lift and soften the appearance wrinkles.  Injectable fillers can be used to plump the lips, enhance hollow areas of the face, soften fine lines and wrinkles, and improve the appearance of settled scars. Fillers are a great option for those with these aesthetic issues, but do not want to undergo an invasive surgery.

Ideal candidates for fillers are in general good health, do not smoke, and are realistic about the outcome of their procedure. It is important that patients understand what fillers can and cannot do for them so they are fully aware of the results. For example, fillers cannot achieve the same results as a facelift or a forehead lift. There are many different fillers available on the market today including Juvederm, Restylane, Perlane, Belotero, Bellafill and Radiesse.

Juvederm, Restylane, Perlane, Voluma and Belotero are hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, which is a substance that occurs naturally in the body. Radiesse is not a HA filler, but is meant for the body to create volume through the use of the body’s own inflammatory process. Bellafill is a permanent filler. Because injectable fillers are minimally invasive, there is no scarring involved with treatment.

When a patient desires a filler injection treatment, I will first evaluate the patient’s facial structure and skin tone to get a better feel for where the filler should be placed. I will then inject the filler into the designated areas. Most patients tolerate the injections well, though some do ask for a topical numbing cream to be applied beforehand. The entire injection process can take anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour, depending on the number of areas that need treatment.

After treatment, I recommend that patients use an ice pack to reduce any swelling that may occur. There is typically no downtime required after being treated with injectable fillers. With most treatments, the results are immediate, however, how long it lasts depends on the type of filler being used.

Why have an eyelid reduction?

Plastic Surgery Dubai | 27 April 2021

The skin loses its elasticity and our muscles slacken with age. For the eyelids this results in an accumulation of loose skin which collects as folds in the upper lids and forms deepening creases in the lower lids. At the same time there is slackening of the muscle beneath the skin allowing the fat, which cushions the eyes in their sockets, to protrude forward to give the appearance of bagginess. In some families there is an inherited tendency for bags to develop during early adulthood before any skin changes.

What is blepharoplasty surgery?

Blepharoplasty surgery, commonly known as an eyelid reduction, is an operation to reshape the eyelids. An upper-eyelid reduction can improve your vision and make you look younger. A lower-eyelid reduction can help to reduce wrinkles and puffiness.

Why have an eyelid reduction?

With age, our muscles slacken and the skin loses its elasticity. For the eyelids, this results in folds in the upper lids and deepening creases in the lower lids. Also, the slackening of muscle beneath the skin allows the fat which cushions the eyes in their sockets to bulge forwards to give the appearance of bagginess. In some families there is an inherited tendency for bags to develop during early adulthood.

Folds, creases and bagginess often seem worse in the morning, particularly after periods of stress and lack of sleep. This is because fluid that is normally distributed throughout the body when it is upright tends to settle in areas where the skin is loose, such as the eyelids, when a person is lying down. The ageing process can also cause drooping of the eyelids, and folds of skin to gather in the upper eyelids. Sometimes there is so much skin that the upper lids hang over the eyelashes.

What will happen before my operation?

We will meet to talk about why you want surgery and what you want. I will make a note of any illnesses you have or have had in the past. In particular, you should tell me if you have ever had any thyroid disease, high blood pressure, diabetes or eye disorder (such as a detached retina or glaucoma). I will also make a record of any medication you are on, including herbal remedies and medicines that are not prescribed by your doctor. I will examine your eyes, face and skin, and may take some photographs for your medical records. I will ask you to sign a consent form for taking, storing and using the photographs.

I will measure your height and weight to make sure that it is safe to do an operation. If you are overweight, pregnant or planning to become pregnant, I may suggest delaying your operation. If you would be having the surgery under a local anaesthetic, I will make sure that you can lie flat and still. I may want you to be checked out by an ophthalmologist.

How is the surgery performed?

Eyelid reductions can be carried out under local anaesthetic or general anaesthetic. In a typical procedure, I make cuts that follow the natural lines of your eyelids – in the creases of the upper lids and just below the lashes in the lower lids (see the eye on the left of the diagram opposite). These cuts are extended a little way into the crow’s feet (also known as laughter lines) at the corner of the eyes.

What is the alternative treatment?

Sometimes, a sagging forehead and eyebrow can make the eyelid look like it is sagging. I may recommend an eyebrow lift instead of, or at the same time as, an eyelid reduction.

Only wrinkles in the skin which is cut away by the surgery will be improved. Folds of skin extending on to the cheek will not normally be improved. If you have wrinkles and saggy skin elsewhere on your face and neck, it may be useful to have a facelift or necklift (or both) at the same time as the eyelid reduction. A facelift can be used to not only lift the eyebrow and the upper eyelid, but also to lift and open the outer corner of the eye.

Although an eyelid reduction is the best way to reduce sagging of the eyelid, a laser can sometimes be used to burn the surface of your skin in a controlled way. This is called laser resurfacing and it can be carried out at the same time as the eyelid reduction to improve any remaining wrinkles. After laser resurfacing, the skin heals to be softer and less wrinkled. This improvement is not permanent, and the procedure does not work well on dark skin. It has no effect at all on dark circles under the eye.

Botox (injections of the botulinum toxin) can also be used to smooth out fine wrinkles.

Understanding Breast Enlargement

Breast Enlargement Dubai | 23 April 2021

Breast enlargement surgery requires a general anaesthetic, with the operation taking 1-2 hours, and is usually performed as a day-stay or overnight-stay procedure. Following the surgery it is important to have restricted light activities, with no lifting or heavy duties for 7-10 days. Most patients may drive again and return to work within 10 days after the surgery. Heavy activities and sport should not be undertaken for 3-4 weeks following the surgery.

Breast enlargement surgery can enhance your appearance and your self-confidence, enlarging your breasts and making them more proportional with the rest of your body. Breast augmentation can also be used to correct differences in the size of your breasts or sagging breasts which can occur after pregnancy and breast-feeding. There are many choices and options in breast augmentation, which require careful planning to individualise which are the best options for you. All of these choices have advantages and disadvantages, which you should understand before you make a decision with your surgeon. Breast implants will make your breasts larger, but the underlying shape of your breasts will not change, and differences in the size and shape of your breasts may even be more obvious after the surgery.
