A tummy tuck, also known as Abdominoplasty, contours the abdominal area by removing fat and excess loose skin and tightening the abdominal muscles to create a flatter appearance to the stomach.

It’s a popular option for those who have experienced weight loss or post pregnancy.

Lymphoedema is a long-term condition where the lymph nodes get blocked by a build-up of excess fluids in the body. It causes severe swelling, usually in legs and/or arms but can sometimes also affect other parts of the body – head, genitals or chest.

There are several non-surgical options, such as lymphatic massages and compression bandages, that can help manage and reduce the symptoms and pain of Lymphoedema. However, they cannot treat this condition. Surgical options for treating Lymphoedema include Lymph node transplant and Targeted Liposuction.

Facelift removes excess skin, tightens underlying tissues and muscle, and redrapes skin on the face and neck. Wondering if this is the right treatment for you?

Laser Lipo, also called Laser Lipolysis, is the minimally invasive non surgical alternative to liposuction. Laser Lipo uses laser beam to melt hard to shift fat in select body parts which do not respond well to diet or exercise.

You hear a lot about laser liposuction and the results they can give, but there are a few things to know before you decide to try a new treatment. 

Hyaluronic Acid is a moisture magnet, so don’t let the word “acid” fool you. This gel-like water-holding molecule is a moisture-binding ingredient that helps plump and hydrate skin by retaining water. One gram of Hyaluronic Acid can hold up to six litres of water. That means supple, dewy skin is on the cards and fine lines are no longer a problem!

As part of natural healing process, a capsule forms around the breast implants. However in some cases this capsule tightens and compresses the implant distorting the breast shape. in such cases the surgeon performs another surgery to either replace or remove the implant.
