Breast Lift

When to Consider a Breast Lift

Breast lift surgery is a cosmetic surgical procedure that raises and reshapes a woman’s breasts. It is designed for women who have sagging breasts because of a variety of reasons. Time and gravity are both influencing factors regarding the shape and size of a woman’s breasts. As we get older, our skin loses its elasticity, which can lead to breasts losing their firmness. Gravity also plays a role, dragging down large breasts to make them sag as a woman grows older. Therefore, mastopexy becomes a feasible option to consider when you want to address the shape of your breasts.

Pregnancy and nursing can also cause the breasts to lose volume and shape. The shape loss can impact the contour of a woman’s body, making her more self-conscious. A breast lift can address this loss in shape and firmness. It can also reduce the size of the areolas. However, there will be some consequences to this surgery. Since the nipple will be relocated to a more desired position once the breast has been reshaped, you will not be able to breastfeed afterwards. Therefore, we suggest that candidates only consider mastopexy after their planned pregnancies.

The Details on Mastopexy

Mastopexy is a feasible solution for sagging breasts, as the procedure consists of reshaping the breasts to a perkier and more youthful shape. Therefore, the nipple will also be relocated onto the remaining skin once the shape has been addressed. After the surgery, the breasts are firmer and pushed up, resulting in a more desired shape for an enhanced body contour. There will be dietary adjustments required by the patient, since the procedure takes place under general anaesthesia. We also recommend that smokers quit smoking before and after the procedure to ensure optimal results and better cell recovery afterwards.

Cosmetic surgical procedures are tailored to enhance the appearance of your body. Therefore, keeping your expectations realistic and in line with your body is highly recommended for every woman considering mastopexy. By consulting your surgeon before-hand, you can get the necessary information on how to prepare and what to expect from such a surgical procedure. We recommend that a patient is in a healthy physical state to minimise any possible complications and result in optimal recovery time from the surgery itself.

Breast Enlargement

What to Expect When Considering a Breast Enlargement

Breast enlargement surgery is an elective cosmetic surgical procedure to augment the shape and the size of a woman’s breasts. Many women across the world have considered augmentation mammoplasty for a variety of reasons. These reasons include body contour enhancement for women who feel like their breasts are too small. Women can also experience a reduction in breast volume after pregnancy. This type of surgery is ideal to correct the loss in volume and reshape the breasts to a more natural and perky shape.

Augmentation mammoplasty goes beyond the common misconception of only enlarging the breasts for the purpose of having bigger breasts. Women can have a discrepancy in size between their breasts. This surgical procedure can be a solution to correct such a discrepancy. Women who have undergone breast surgery can also consider augmentation mammoplasty as a means to reconstruct the breasts. If you are considering breast enlargement surgery, here are the basics of what to expect and what the surgery would entail.

Keeping it Real

The most important part for any ideal candidate regarding breast enlargement surgery is to keep their expectations realistic. Perfection is something to strive for, but rarely achieved when it comes to elective cosmetic surgical procedures. Therefore, by consulting your surgeon before-hand, you can get a good idea of what the outcome would be of augmentation mammoplasty. The procedure’s goal is to enhance the size and shape of your breasts, nothing more than that. The procedure takes place under general anaesthesia for the patient. So, expect some dietary adjustments before your surgery. We also recommend that smokers quit smoking for a specified period before and after the surgery takes place. This will enhance cell recovery and ensure that your surgery delivers optimal results.

The procedure consists of inserting an implant behind each breast to increase the bust line by one or more bra sizes. Such an enhancement will also deliver a better body contour line for the patient. Since it is a full-blown surgical procedure, all the necessary preparations and precautions will be discussed with the patient before-hand, ensuring that the patient fully comprehends the surgery and has realistic expectations of the outcome. If you are in a healthy physical condition and want to enhance the shape and size of your breasts, augmentation mammoplasty can be the solution that you are looking for.

Centurion Cosmetic Clinic offers a variety of cosmetic surgical procedures that includes augmentation mammoplasty. For more info on our available surgical procedures, please peruse our website for details on what to expect and what the procedure will consist of.

Breast Reduction

How a Breast Reduction Surgery Can Help You

Women with very large breasts can experience medical problems because of the excessive weight of their breasts. These problems are related to their back, neck, and shoulders, having to deal with an increased amount of weight in proportion to their body. Therefore, breast reduction surgery has been introduced to the world of cosmetic surgical procedures. Although it is an elective surgery, it can hold medical benefits for women with large and pendulous breasts. By reducing the size of the breasts, the neck, back, and shoulders will be relieved of the extra weight.

Reduction mammoplasty removes fat, glandular tissue, and excess skin from the breasts. This results in smaller, firmer, and lighter breasts that are more proportionate to your body. Therefore, your back, neck, and shoulders will deal with less weight to carry around. This procedure can also reduce the size of a large areola, which is common with large breasts. As a result, reduction mammoplasty holds medical and cosmetic benefits for women with very large breasts. After the surgery, you won’t be able to breastfeed anymore, since the nipple will be relocated.

Bigger Is Not Always Better

Many women consider augmentation mammoplasty, which increases the size and volume of their breasts. However, bigger is not necessarily better in every case. When a woman has large and pendulous breasts, there are several medical issues that could develop as a result of the increased weight. Excessive back pain, neck pain, and skeletal deformities are possible problems that could arise from it. This excludes the discomfort of deep indentations from bra straps on the shoulders and skin irritations as a result. Luckily, reduction mammoplasty is a feasible solution to address such problems.

Breast reduction surgery takes place under general anaesthesia. This requires some dietary preparation from the patient before the day of the surgery. Smokers are also asked to quit smoking for a period before and after the surgery. This will optimise cellular recovery afterwards to ensure that you have the best possible results. We also recommend that you are in a healthy physical state, as it is a full-blown medical surgery that requires some time to recover from. Keep your expectations real as well. By consulting your surgeon before-hand, you can get all the necessary info on what the surgery can do for you and the possible results that you can expect from it.

Centurion Cosmetic Clinic is your first choice for elective cosmetic surgical procedures in Gauteng. Reduction mammoplasty forms a part of our selection of procedures for both women and men.

Combo Breast Procedure

A Comprehensive Approach to Cosmetic Breast Surgery

Cosmetic surgeries offer a variety of options regarding breast surgery for women. These options include breast augmentation, breast lift, and breast reduction procedures to address their shape, size, firmness, and sagginess. In some cases, women can benefit from a combination of breast lift and augmentation surgeries. Such a combo breast procedure can result in firmer and perkier breasts, enhancing your body contour and giving you the confidence in your body image to take on the world.

Several aspects of everyday life can influence the shape and firmness of a woman’s breasts. Gravity and age are both responsible for sagging the breasts as we grow older. The skin loses its elasticity through aging, while gravity does the rest. Pregnancy and nursing are also responsible for volume loss, which can influence the firmness and shape of the breasts. A combo breast procedure can give you a comprehensive approach to cosmetic breast surgery that will address such issues.

Combining Mastopexy and Augmentation Mammoplasty

Mastopexy is the medical term for a breast lift surgery. This surgery is ideal for sagging breasts, as it will remove excess skin and fat tissue to form a perkier and firmer shape. The nipple will also be relocated during this process, which will mean that breastfeeding afterwards will not be possible. Once this process is complete, the other part of the procedure (breast implants) will address the loss in volume of the breast. The implants will enhance the shape of the breasts to optimally suit your body.

Augmentation mammoplasty medically refers to a breast augmentation surgery. This type of surgery inserts implants behind the breast muscle to increase the volume and bust size for an enhanced body contour. By combining augmentation mammoplasty and Mastopexy into a single procedure, women can get desired results without having to go through multiple procedures. The operation takes place under general anaesthesia, which requires some dietary adjustments before-hand.

An ideal candidate for such a procedure is in a physically healthy state to ensure that the surgery has minimal risks and the recovery process is optimal. Having realistic expectations is also a good thing when considering such a surgery. Therefore, we advise a consultation with your surgeon before-hand. This will give you a clear picture on what to expect and how to prepare accordingly.

Centurion Cosmetic Clinic is your solution to a variety of elective cosmetic surgical procedures for women and men. If you are interested in a combo breast procedure, please browse our website for details. Take control of your body and how you present yourself to the world with us on your side.

Liposuction

The Details on Liposuction

People who want to lose weight have gone to extreme measures to do so with “shortcuts” and fancy new products. However, there has not been a feasible alternative to the conventional method of dietary adjustments and regular exercise. Our bodies have fat cells that grow in size when gaining weight and shrink in size when burning those calories. Sometimes, fat cells become non-responsive to dietary adjustments and regular exercise. This is where liposuction becomes a solution for people who want to address specific areas on their bodies that store stubborn fat cells.

Liposuction is a method to sculpt the body by removing stubborn fat cells from a specific area, which can include the buttocks, hips, abdomen, knees, thighs, upper arms, neck, chin, and cheeks. Since conventional weight-loss methods only shrink the size of fat cells, liposuction completely removes stubborn fat cells to address the problem at its core and sculpt the body for an enhanced and more desirable contour afterwards. If you are considering liposuction, it is pivotal to understand what the procedure entails and what is expected from you.

The Ideal Candidate for Liposuction

Liposuction is a full-blown medical surgery that is done under general anaesthesia. Therefore, there will always be risks involved. To minimise those risks, an ideal candidate should be in a healthy physical state to begin with. We also recommend that such a candidate still has an elastic and healthy skin to optimise the recovery and results of the surgery. Since the skin would need to adjust to the new contour of the body once the fat cells have been removed, it should still be elastic enough to make the necessary adjustments. We also advise that smokers quit smoking for a period before and after surgery to prepare the cells in your body accordingly.

Consulting a medical professional when considering any kind of surgery will allow you to make an informed decision on whether to go through with it and if it can solve your problems. By talking to a surgeon who has experience and ample knowledge regarding liposuction surgery, you can get a good understanding of what such a surgery would entail and how it can assist you. Therefore, an ideal candidate for liposuction will ensure that they fit the bill and consult their surgeon to have realistic expectations about the surgery’s outcome and function.

Centurion Cosmetic Clinic is your first choice regarding surgical cosmetic procedures in Gauteng. If you are considering liposuction, please peruse our website for details on the procedure, or contact us with any enquiries. Get rid of those stubborn fat cells with us on your side.

Tummy Tuck

Considering a Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty in medical terms, is a major surgical procedure that addresses a protruding abdomen. This procedure removes excess fat and skin from the middle and lower abdomen, also tightening the muscles of the abdominal wall. Since this major procedure tightens the abdominal muscles, we strongly recommend that women consider a tummy tuck only after having babies. A pregnancy would simply undo all the work of a tummy tuck, thus rendering such a major surgery pointless.

Abdominoplasty can result in a more desirable body contour around the abdominal area. By removing the excess fat and skin in this specific area of the body, it can drastically reduce the size of a protruding abdomen but will have certain risks involved as well. Any type of major surgical procedure comes with certain levels of risk. Therefore, it is crucial to inform yourself on what this surgery entails and the results that you can expect from it. This procedure is not a main means of losing weight. Rather, it is a way of sculpting the body and dealing with stubborn fat cells in the abdominal area.

Are You an Ideal Candidate?

Any medical professional would agree that major medical procedures should only be considered by ideal candidates for the purpose of the surgery. Therefore, people who are considering a tummy tuck should consult a professional surgeon about their options. In your initial consultation with our surgeons, your body will be evaluated, along with your current physical health, to determine the extent of fat deposits in the abdominal area. We highly recommend that you disclose health-related information to your surgeon throughout this consultation as well. Aspects such as smoking or being on prescribed medication will play a determining factor for your surgery preparations.

In some cases, an alternative procedure, such as partial abdominoplasty or liposuction, can deliver similar results to what you are expecting from a tummy tuck. In such a case, your surgeon can explain the details and limitations of these procedures to find an alternative when complete abdominoplasty is not necessary. We also recommend that candidates have a healthy and elastic skin that can adapt to the new shape of your toned body. We can assist in partial and complete abdominoplasty surgery, as well as liposuction, to get rid of stubborn fat cells in your abdominal area.

Centurion Cosmetic Clinic is your first choice in cosmetic surgical procedures for women and men. For more info on how we can assist you, please browse our website for details on our range of procedures. If you are considering a tummy tuck, we are your solution.

Ear Surgery

Benefits of Cosmetic Ear Surgery

Cosmetic ear surgery is designed for people who have prominent ears. This surgery sets back the shape of the ears to sit more closely to the side profile of the head for a more natural look. Although cosmetic surgery would commonly be a solution for adults, otoplasty is done on children between the ages of 4 and 14 for the best result. Since this surgical procedure addresses prominent ears, it can serve as a solution for your child as well, saving them from a life of social ridiculing from their peers.

As an adult with prominent ears, you can become very self-aware of them. Otoplasty has no additional risks for adults in comparison to children. Therefore, this type of surgery can address the problem for adults as well. The concept of the procedure is simple and carries minimal risks in comparison to other major cosmetic surgical procedures. As a result, cosmetic ear surgery is feasible for any age. Otoplasty is performed under general anaesthesia, which means that it would require some dietary adjustments from the patient before the day of the surgery.

The Procedure

Cosmetic ear surgery consists of a basic concept that is easy to comprehend. The surgeon will make an incision on the back of the ear to gain access to the cartilage. The surgeon can then fold or sculpt the cartilage for a more desired profile. Once the cartilage is shaped, the incision is stitched up to hold the cartilage in its new shape during the recovery process. By creating a fold in the cartilage, prominently shaped ears are pulled closer to the head for a more natural look and profile.

With any type of surgical procedure, it is smart to inform yourself on the benefits and risks involved when considering such a solution. Although the risks involved with otoplasty are limited, we still recommend a consultation with a medical professional before-hand. Our surgeons are professionally qualified and experienced to deliver optimal results for people considering cosmetic ear surgery. When considering such a procedure for your child, it is pivotal to include them in such discussions and understand their feelings towards it. Although it would be in their favour, their approval would ensure that they are comfortable throughout the process.

Centurion Cosmetic Clinic is your solution to various cosmetic surgical procedures for women and men. If you want more info on otoplasty and the procedure itself, please browse our website for details. Feel free to contact us with any enquiries about how we can assist you.

Male Breast Reduction

Male Cosmetic Surgery – Chest Reduction

Cosmetic surgical procedures are commonly done for women. However, there are 2 cosmetic procedures that are becoming increasingly popular amongst men as well. These include tummy tucks to address stubborn fat deposits around the abdominal area, as well as male chest reduction surgery to address gynaecomastia. This medical term refers to men having protruding chests due to large fat deposits in this specific part of the body. Therefore, we suggest that men who are considering these types of surgeries are in a healthy physical state.

Losing weight is a process that most people will deal with throughout their adult lives. Living a healthy lifestyle is an active choice. By making dietary adjustments and having a regular exercise routine, you will reduce the size of the fat cells in your body. However, some fat cells are stubborn and non-responsive to conventional weight-loss methods and a healthy lifestyle. Therefore, the liposuction technique can be a feasible solution as it removes stubborn fat cells in their entirety as opposed to only reducing their size. This technique is applied to male chest reduction surgery for optimal results for men suffering from gynaecomastia.

The Procedure and Benefits

Liposuction removes fat cells from specific parts of the body. This process is used for male chest reduction as well. The surgeon will make a small incision around the lower half of the nipple area on the chest to perform liposuction on the targeted area. By reducing the number of fat cells in the area, the chest will be flattened and firmed for a more sculpted and contoured look. The procedure takes between 1 and 2 hours to complete and is done under general anaesthesia. Therefore, there will be dietary adjustments involved for the patient the day before surgery.

Men suffering from gynaecomastia have limited clothes options because of their protruding chest. This could have a negative impact on their self-image and give them limited options regarding wardrobe selection. Baggy clothes are an option, although taking off their shirts in public can be very daunting. Male chest reduction surgery is a feasible solution for a man who is healthy, in good physical shape, and looking for a solution to sculpt their chest for a more desirable, natural, and proportionate look. If you consider male chest reduction surgery, we advise consulting a medical professional in this field before-hand.

Centurion Cosmetic Clinic is your solution to cosmetic surgical procedures for men and women. We can deliver liposuction solutions for men to address gynaecomastia and stubborn fat deposits in the abdominal area. For more info on these procedures, please browse our website for details and what to expect when considering such a procedure for yourself.

Male Liposuction

Male Cosmetic Surgery – Liposuction

Men who live a healthy lifestyle are sometimes plagued by stubborn fat deposits in certain areas of their bodies. These areas include the abdomen, neck, chest, and flanks where non-responsive fat deposits can sit. Through a healthy diet and regular exercise, fat cells shrink in size. However, they are still present in the body. Sometimes, through a process of weight-loss and sculpting the body, some fat deposits are non-responsive. This is where male liposuction surgery becomes a feasible option to address this problem at its core.

Liposuction consists of removing stubborn fat deposits from targeted areas on the body. By removing these cells, the results are a more sculpted body, with a more natural body contour. Men would constantly struggle with stubborn fat deposits around the abdominal area. Liposuction surgery can tackle this problem by removing a certain amount of fat cells completely. Therefore, we recommend that candidates have healthy and elastic skin to accommodate the adjustments and the new shape on the treated area. However, it is important to note that liposuction is not a main means of losing weight. Conventional eating and exercise methods are still the best and healthiest option to achieve your weight-loss goals.

Expected Results and Ideal Candidates

When consulting a professional surgeon on liposuction, you will get an informed and comprehensive idea of what to expect from such a cosmetic surgery. Having realistic expectations about how your body will look afterwards is key to avoid any disappointment. Your surgeon will analyse your body and talk you through the process of how liposuction can improve certain areas. By doing this assessment, they can also give you a realistic idea of what to expect and how this surgery can turn out for you. In the end, liposuction is still a full-blown surgical procedure that is done under general anaesthesia. There will be some risks involved, as is the case with any medical procedure.

An ideal candidate for liposuction is in a healthy physical state, with healthy and elastic skin that can adapt to the reduced volumes on treated areas. The recovery time for male patients are fairly quick and carries minimal downtime from exercise and work. Therefore, most of our male clients are eager to get back to their regular daily routines that include exercise. Liposuction can be your complementary solution to sculpting your body into the shape that you want it to be.

Vibro-Liposuction

What is Vibro-Liposuction?

Regular liposuction is a cosmetic surgical technique to remove stubborn fat cells from specific areas on the body. Vibro-liposuction is an advanced form of this technique, adding compressed air to the cannula to allow the cannula to vibrate. The vibration leads to the emulsification of the fat cells, making them easier to target and extract, even from more challenging areas on the body. As an adult, your body is done with developing and growing, which means that it becomes your responsibility to keep it in healthy shape. However, this can be a daunting task.

Most of us will go through a phase of weight-loss during our adult years. Conventional weight-loss methods such as dietary adjustments and regular exercise have proven to be most effective in comparison to “shortcuts” or quick fixes. The fat cells in our body respond to what we digest and how much we exercise. When burning calories, the size of these fat cells will decrease. However, there can be stubborn fat deposits that are non-responsive to conventional methods. This is where vibro-liposuction can be a solution when you want to sculpt your body and get rid of those fat deposits.

Targeting the Problem at its Core

Vibro-liposuction holds all the benefits of regular liposuction for both men and women. The difference is the added benefits of faster healing and a more effective method of removing stubborn fat cells from the body. The added vibrating motion of the cannula stimulates collagen synthesis in the treated area. Collagen is one of the most prominent proteins in tissue fibres in the human body. Therefore, the vibrations of the cannula will enhance recovery times through collagen synthesis. Patients can also expect less swelling and discomfort afterwards.

The ideal candidate for any type of cosmetic surgical procedure will have realistic expectations about the possible results in accordance to their own bodies. We recommend that people who are considering vibro-liposuction be in a healthy physical state and in good shape. This procedure is not an alternative to conventional weight-loss methods, but rather a solution to get rid of those stubborn fat deposits and sculpt your body. The procedure takes place under general anaesthesia, which would require some preparations on the patient’s side. When you consult a professional surgeon about vibro-liposuction, you can get a clear view on what to expect from the results. Therefore, you can make an informed decision before going through with it.

Centurion Cosmetic Clinic is your first choice in a variety of cosmetic surgery options for both women and men. For more info on how we can assist you, please browse our website today for details on our different surgical procedures.
