Breast Reduction

Reduction Mammoplasty – How Can a Breast Reduction Help Me?

 

A breast reduction procedure is a feasible solution for women with exceptionally large and pendulous breasts. These women can experience a selection of medical complications that can develop as a result of the increased strain on the upper part of their bodies. These complications can include back and neck pain, skin irritation, skeletal deformities, and breathing problems. Reduction mammoplasty is designed to reduce the size of the breasts to relieve the upper body of the increased weight and avoid any problematic developments that could come down the line. It is also an option for teenage girls who are going through physical development and growth and have developed pendulous and oversized breasts.

 

Relieving the Physical Strain

 

Women with pendulous and oversized breasts consistently deal with a disproportionate weight strain on their upper bodies. Bra indentations are a common occurrence, causing discomfort and pain on a day-to-day basis. The impact of the increased weight of the breasts can also cause a variety of problems for the upper body, especially throughout the developmental teenage years. As a result, a breast reduction surgery can relieve this strain on the upper body to allow the skeleton, shoulders, and neck to develop normally and without any complications.

 

A Professional Consultation

 

With any type of surgery, a consultation with a professional surgeon will be where such a process begins. When booking a consultation with us, your surgeon will walk you through a detailed assessment of how this type of surgery can work for you. The surgery involves removing fat, glandular tissue, and excess skin from the breasts to result in smaller, lighter, and firmer breasts that are in proportion to the rest of your body. The nipples will also be relocated once the breasts have been reduced, which can lead to smaller areolas. Unfortunately, it also means that breastfeeding will no longer be possible.

 

The Recovery

 

After surgery, you will wear a surgical bra over your clothes for the coming 6 weeks to 3 months. This will allow your breasts to settle in their new shape and allow the swelling to subside. Naturally, you can expect some pain and discomfort for a couple of days following the surgery. This can be managed with prescribed medication. Your body needs time to recover and adjust to the reduced strain on the upper part. Therefore, you should take it easy during recovery to optimise the results.

Breast Lift

A Surgical Solution for Sagging Breasts

 

The effects of gravity and age have drastic and direct implications on our physical appearance. The skin beings to hold less volumes of elastin and collagen cells as a result of aging, causing loose skin, wrinkles, and aging lines to appear. The consistent effect of gravity adds to the problem by turning loose skin into saggy skin. A woman’s breasts can start to sag as a result of both these natural occurrences on her body. Mastopexy offers a solution when you want to address sagging breasts and reclaim a more youthful and perkier shape.

 

The Procedure

 

A breast lift surgery consists of the surgeon removing any excess skin and reshaping the breasts to a more natural shape. This also includes the removal and relocation of the nipples once the breasts have been reshaped. Therefore, large areolas will also be a thing of the past, giving you a more natural look. However, with the relocation of the nipples, you will not be able to breastfeed anymore. Therefore, you should keep it in mind when considering a breast lift.

 

When Can I Consider a Breast Lift Surgery?

 

Mastopexy is commonly recommended to women who went through several pregnancies and suffered volume loss in their breasts as a result, to a point where their breasts have started to sag. Older women also consider breast lifts to address sagging breasts as a result of aging. The perfect candidate for a breast lift surgery still has enough elasticity in their skin to ensure that the skin can adapt to the new shape of the breasts during recovery. This procedure is normally done on women who already had children and do not need to breastfeed in the future.

 

Combining a Breast lift with a Breast Enlargement

 

During your consultation with one of our professional surgeons, they can suggest a combination of both a breast lift surgery and a breast enlargement procedure. Augmentation mammoplasty adds volume and size to the breasts, which can increase your body contours and the overall bust of your breasts. Apart from having your breasts reshaped, you can expect some extra size as a result of the silicon implants that will be inserted either directly under the breast tissue or beneath the chest muscle wall.

We also offer breast enlargement and reduction procedures to give you a comprehensive approach to cosmetic breast surgery solutions.

Breast Enlargement

What Can I Expect from a Breast Enlargement Surgery?

 

There are many stereotypical stigmas related to a breast enlargement procedure. This procedure is commonly considered by women who want to enhance their body contours. Augmentation mammoplasty can also serve as a surgical means for breast reconstruction or to correct a size imbalance of the breasts. This procedure can also be combined with a breast lift surgery to reshape breasts that suffered volume loss or sagging. Let’s talk about what you can expect from a breast enlargement surgery and the benefits that it can hold for you.

 

Increased Cup Size and Enhanced Body Contours

 

A breast enlargement surgery’s main focus is to increase the size and bust of the breasts by at least one cup size. This will also improve the body contours. As a result, if you are considering a breast enlargement procedure for cosmetic purposes alone, your surgeon can give you a good idea of what to expect afterwards. It is pivotal to the health of your body and wellbeing that the upper part of your body stays in proportion to minimise any medical implications that can be caused by oversized breasts. Therefore, keep your expectations realistic throughout this process.

 

The Procedure

 

Breast enlargement is done under general anaesthesia to ensure that the patient sleeps through it all. The procedure adds silicone implants either directly under the breast tissue or beneath the chest wall muscle to add volume, size, and bust to the breasts. Afterwards, you can expect some soreness for the following couple of days. Your surgeon will prescribe specific painkillers that you can take to manage any discomfort. However, it is crucial that you only take the prescribed medication to avoid any painkillers that can influence blood coagulation and cause any unnecessary

 

Preparing for Surgery

 

A breast enlargement surgery requires some preparation from the patient to prepare their body for the procedure and a speedy recovery afterwards. If you are a smoker, refrain from smoking for a specified period before and after the surgery. This will optimise oxygen flow in your body, allowing your cells to heal optimally during recovery. Also, you will need some assistance to get home after your surgery, as well as someone who can take care of you during recovery.

Surgical Facelift

What Can I Expect from a Surgical Facelift?

Our faces are the most expressive features of our bodies. Unfortunately, the earliest signs of aging appear on our faces in the form of sagging skin, wrinkles, and fine lines around the mouth, nose, and eyes. A surgical facelift turns back the clock a bit by addressing these aging signs through surgical means. As a result, you can expect a rejuvenated and more youthful appearance. Surgical facelifts are commonly done on people between the age of 40 and 60. However, it can also be done on people who are older and still have healthy skin.

Am I Too Old to Consider a Surgical Facelift?

An ideal candidate for this type of surgery should have a strong and well-defined bone structure, along with skin that is elastic enough for the procedure. The purpose of a surgical facelift is to rejuvenate, making you look younger and refreshed. Therefore, it will not drastically change your facial appearance or expressions, but rather remove the signs of aging and loose skin. As a result, it is important that you keep your expectations realistic and carefully consider your surgery before making a final decision.

Consulting a Professional Surgeon

If you are considering a surgical facelift, the first step is to book a consultation with one of our professional surgeons. During this consultation, they can do a thorough evaluation and give you a professional opinion on the benefits that such a surgery can hold for you. You can also expect a complete walkthrough of the surgery to ensure that you can make an informed decision. If you require any financial aid to pay for your surgical facelift, we can point you to a financial consultant to get you sorted.

What Can I Expect from the Recovery?

After a surgical facelift, you are unlikely to experience significant discomfort. However, the pain can be managed with prescribed painkillers. If you are a smoker, prepare yourself to refrain form smoking for at least 2 months before and after the surgery. This will optimise oxygen levels in your body, promoting cellular healing. You can expect some numbness of the skin in your face during recovery, which will disappear after a couple of weeks. To keep the swelling down, you must keep your head elevated and as still as possible for a couple of days following your surgery.

Centurion Cosmetic Clinic is your first choice when you are considering a surgical facelift in Gauteng. We also offer other cosmetic surgeries for women and men. For more info on how we can assist you, please browse our website for details on our procedures, or contact us to book a consultation.

Eyelid Surgery

Should I Consider Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery?

Cosmetic eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty in medical terms, is a feasible solution for people suffering from heavy and protruded eyelids, bags underneath the eyes, and wrinkles around the eyes. Protruded upper eyelids can be genetically related and develop into a medical condition where the eyelids start to obscure your vision. Cosmetic eyelid surgery can reduce eyelid protrusion to ensure that your field of view is not obscured anymore. If you are considering blepharoplasty, Centurion Cosmetic Clinic can be your answer.

Getting a Professional Evaluation

By booking a consultation with us, you will undergo a thorough evaluation on how blepharoplasty can help you. It is important to play open cards with your surgeon regarding the health and condition of your eyes. If you are undergoing any optical treatments or have a specific eye-related condition, it is vital for your surgeon to take it into consideration when discussing a possible cosmetic eyelid surgery. Your surgeon will also give you crucial information on how to prepare for the surgery and what you can expect from recovery afterwards. Therefore, you can make an informed decision that is based on your consultation with a professional.

The Procedure

Cosmetic eyelid surgery is performed in a day hospital and under general anaesthesia. As a result, the necessary processes and preparations will be followed when you choose to go through with your surgery. The surgery involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the upper eyelids, as well as targeting the fat pads underneath the eyes for a rejuvenated and more youthful appearance. In the end, your eyes are some of the most notable features of your face. With blepharoplasty, you can turn back the clock a bit and be rid of aging lines and wrinkles around the eyes as well.

The Recovery

As with any other surgery, cosmetic eyelid surgery will require that you take it easy for a while after your surgery, giving your body time to heal. You may experience swelling and some discomfort afterwards, which can be managed with prescribed painkillers. It is important that you only use painkillers that are prescribed to you by your surgeon, since most over-the-counter painkillers will influence blood coagulation. Complete recovery may take between 4 to 6 months. You can also expect the scars on the eyelids to heal and become barely visible.

Centurion Cosmetic Clinic is your first choice when you are considering cosmetic surgery in Gauteng. We offer a wide selection of solutions for women and men, including cosmetic eyelid surgery.

Mommy Makeover

The Mommy Makeover – A Combo Cosmetic Surgery

Our Mommy Makeover procedure is an ideal solution for women who went through multiple pregnancies and want to reclaim their former figure. This procedure combines several surgical procedures into a single package, covering the entire upper body to enhance your body’s contours and be rid of any stubborn fat deposits that remained after pregnancy. When booking a consultation with us, your surgeon can give you a comprehensive walkthrough of the surgery and evaluate your body to recommend optimal solutions.

Addressing Volume Loss and Sagginess

A woman’s breasts can lose volume as a result of pregnancy and breastfeeding. Age and gravitational force are both attributing factors to sagging breasts as well. Therefore, our Mommy Makeover includes a breast lift surgery to address any sagginess. This procedure removes any excess skin from the breasts to reshape them to be perkier and more youthful. It can also be combined with a breast augmentation surgery to enhance your body contours and add some volume to your breasts. However, you will not be able to breastfeed afterwards as a result of relocating the nipples.

Tackling Stubborn Fat Deposits

The human body has fat cells underneath the surface of the skin that are responsive to our diet, exercise, and lifestyle. When gaining weight, these fat cells grow in size, protruding areas such as the abdomen, upper arms, and thighs. When losing that weight, the fat cells are broken down naturally, reducing in size. However, stubborn fat deposits can reveal themselves throughout weight-loss. Liposuction offers a surgical solution to break down these deposits and remove them from the body for good. Therefore, liposuction is part of our Mommy Makeover to sculpt your body and ensure that fat protrusion is eliminated.

Our Mommy Makeover can also include a tummy tuck, taking care of the middle and lower abdomen. This procedure removes excess fat and loose skin from the abdominal areas, tightening the abdominal muscle wall in the process as well. Therefore, you can expect a flatter and more toned abdomen as opposed to dealing with loose skin and fat deposits as a result of pregnancy. However, if you get pregnant afterwards, you will undo the abdominoplasty. Therefore, we recommend this type of procedure to women who already had children and want to enjoy their lives as a mom.

Centurion Cosmetic Clinic is your first choice when you are looking for cosmetic surgical solutions in Gauteng. For more info on our Mommy Makeover and what to expect from this combo procedure, please browse our website for details. Take control of your body with us on your side.

Vibro-Liposuction

Sculpting Your Body with Vibro-Liposuction

There are several non-surgical treatments that can reduce the size of fat cells underneath the skin. However, liposuction offers a more direct approach by surgically removing fat deposits as opposed to reducing their size. Seeing that this surgical procedure has grown in popularity since its introduction, several advanced methods have been developed over the years to assist surgeons during such a procedure. We offer vibro-liposuction as an advanced liposuction technique that can be used to target more sensitive areas on the body.

How Does Vibro-Liposuction Work?

The method of basic liposuction sees the surgeon making a small incision around the targeted area on the body to insert a cannula that can break down and vacuum out fat deposits. Vibro-liposuction adds compressed air to the cannula, allowing it to vibrate. Although it seems like a trivial addition, the vibrations allow the surgeon to break down the fat deposits more efficiently while stimulating collagen production in the skin tissue. Therefore, you can expect healthier skin and a smoother skin surface as a result of more structural protein production on the treated area.

Benefits of Vibro-Liposuction

By adding vibration to the cannula, the surgeon can target more delicate and sensitive areas on the body without the risk of causing damage. It also increases the accuracy and precision at which the surgeon can break down and remove fat deposits. For the patient, there will be reduced swelling in comparison to regular liposuction. You can also expect less pain and faster recovery times after your surgery. Since the surgery will take less time to complete, your anaesthetic shot will keep you under for a shorter amount of time. In the end, vibro-liposuction is an advanced surgical technique that is more beneficial to both the surgeon and patient in relation to regular liposuction.

Why Should I Consider One over the Other?

Dependent on the areas of your body that house stubborn fat deposits, your surgeon can recommend either regular liposuction or vibro-liposuction. Therefore, your best option is to book a consultation with us when you are interested in liposuction. During your consultation, your surgeon can do a comprehensive assessment of your body and give you their professional opinion regarding liposuction. We can also point you to a financial consultant when you need financial aid to pay for your surgery. Therefore, we have you covered when you choose us.

Centurion Cosmetic Clinic is your first choice regarding vibro-liposuction for women and men living in Gauteng. We also offer other cosmetic surgical solutions such as tummy tucks and cosmetic ear surgery. For more info on how we can assist you, browse our website for details.

Male Liposuction

Liposuction for Men

Normally, cosmetic surgical procedures are intended for women. However, if you are a man who wants to sculpt your body and be rid of any stubborn fat deposits, liposuction can be your answer. This surgical procedure can be performed on men and women, breaking down and removing fat deposits for enhanced body contours. For men, liposuction commonly targets fat deposits on the neck, chest, abdomen, and flanks. However, it should not be considered as a surgical means to lose or control your weight.

An Ideal Candidate for Male Liposuction

The ideal candidate for liposuction is in relatively healthy and good physical shape, having a balanced dietary intake and a regular exercise routine. Such a lifestyle will burn fat naturally in your body, revealing any stubborn fat cells that are non-responsive to your weight-loss efforts. These fat deposits can be targeted with liposuction for surgical and permanent removal from your body. The result is a more contoured and sculpted upper body that is free from any fat protrusion. Liposuction can also be used to treat gynaecomastia, reducing chest protrusion that develops as a result of a hormonal imbalance.

Getting an Evaluation

If you consider liposuction, you can book a consultation with one of our surgeons to get a comprehensive evaluation on how this procedure can benefit you and what you can expect from the results. You will also receive instructions on how to prepare for this surgery and the recovery period afterwards. Male liposuction candidates can expect a rapid recovery in comparison to other surgical procedures. The procedure is performed in a day hospital as well for your convenience. Therefore, you will be back to normal in no time at all.

What Can I Expect During Recovery?

You can expect more soreness than pain after your surgery, as if you had a busy day at the gym and overdid it a little. You can remove your compression garment the day following your surgery, which will normally be worn for several weeks in other instances. Most men who went through liposuction are able to return to work within a couple of days, resuming regular exercise within 4 weeks to allow the body to rest and heal.

Centurion Cosmetic Clinic is your answer when you are looking for male liposuction solutions. We also offer liposuction for women as part of our cosmetic surgical solutions. For more info on how we can assist you, please browse our website for details. Contact us today to book your consultation and rid yourself of stubborn fat deposits for good.

Male Breast Reduction

Liposuction for Men: Chest Reduction

Liposuction is a popular and commonly practiced surgical technique that targets and removes fat deposits underneath the skin for a more contoured and sculpted body. This technique can be accompanied by a variety of medical devices to assist the surgeon to target specific areas on the body. It can be performed on women and men, serving as a feasible solution for men suffering from gynaecomastia. About 60% of men are likely to suffer from gynaecomastia as a result of a hormonal imbalance that leads to chest protrusion. Luckily, Centurion Cosmetic Clinic can help.

Targeting Fat Cells Underneath the Chest

Our male breast reduction surgery takes advantage of liposuction to specifically target the fat cells directly underneath the protruded chest area. By breaking down and removing excess fat from underneath the skin, the effect of gynaecomastia can be reduced for a more sculpted upper body. Men suffering from gynaecomastia have limited wardrobe choices and can become embarrassed about the appearance of their bodies. Therefore, our male breast reduction surgery can reinstate your self-confidence and open your wardrobe options once again.

Adopting a Healthy Lifestyle

Usually, a candidate for liposuction is in a relatively healthy physical condition, having a balanced diet and a regular exercise routine. By adopting a healthy lifestyle, you will allow your body to burn fat naturally. This process will reveal any stubborn fat deposits in your body and can also assist in reducing the effect of gynaecomastia. However, should the fat cells underneath the chest not respond to your healthy lifestyle, liposuction can be your answer.

The Procedure

When considering a male breast reduction surgery, the first step is to book a consultation. Your surgeon can evaluate your condition and advise you on the best options moving forward. Liposuction is done with a cannula that is inserted through a small incision around the targeted area, which is the chest in this scenario. The surgeon can break down and vacuum out the fat deposits underneath the chest, reducing the protrusion. Most of our male patients are in good physical shape and can get back to work after a fairly short recovery period. The procedure is done under general anaesthesia, ensuring that the patient sleeps through everything while the surgeon goes to work on those fat deposits.

Centurion Cosmetic Clinic is your first choice when you are suffering from gynaecomastia or wish to be rid of any fat deposits to sculpt your body.

Ear Surgery

A Surgical Solution for Protruding Ears

Cosmetic ear surgery is ideal for people who have protruding ears. Otoplasty is a procedure that sculpts and folds the cartilage of the ear to position it closer to the side profile of the head. It serves as a solution for kids and adults alike, ensuring that children can avoid a life of ridiculing from their peers. The shape of our ears develops at a young age, allowing otoplasty to be performed effectively on children.

Considering Otoplasty for your Child

If you are considering cosmetic ear surgery for your child, it is important to be aware of your child’s feelings toward otoplasty. With a consultation, our surgeons can give your child a thorough assessment and establish a good understanding of the procedure with you and your child. The procedure is done under general anaesthesia. Therefore, your child will sleep through the procedure while the surgeon reshapes their ear cartilages. If your child feels uncomfortable with the shape of their ears and wants a change, otoplasty is your answer. They will also be more cooperative throughout the preparations and recovery period if they choose to go through with the surgery.

The Procedure

The surgeon will make an incision on the back of the ear to gain access to the cartilage. From here, the surgeon can fold and sculpt the cartilage to pull the ears closer to the head. Once the new shape is in place, the incision is stitched shut to keep the shape in place during recovery. After the surgery, the surgeon will wrap the patient’s head in a bandage to promote optimal moulding and healing. The ears can throb and cause discomfort, which can be managed with prescribed painkillers supplied by your surgeon.

As an adult who considers otoplasty, you can be assured that the procedure will be as effective for you as it is for children. If you are a smoker, prepare to quit smoking for a few months before and after the surgery. This will optimise the oxygen flow on a cellular level, allowing your body to heal faster and more efficiently. It starts with a consultation to ensure that you can make an informed decision when considering cosmetic ear surgery. We can also point you to a financial consultant when you need financial aid to pay for your surgery.
