Breast Reduction

A Solution for Oversized Breasts

Breast reduction surgery is a cosmetic surgical procedure for women who want to reduce the size of their breasts to reduce the physical strain on the upper part of their body. Oversized breasts can have negative medical effects on a woman’s body as a result of the extra weight being put on the upper body. Such women will suffer from consistent bra indentations on their shoulders. These indentations can also cause skin irritation apart from the obvious discomfort. The increased weight of oversized breasts can also lead to the development of skeletal deformities, breathing problems, and constant back and neck pain.

What is the Solution?

Breast reduction surgery can be a solution for women with oversized breasts who want to address the negative effects they have on their body. This procedure can also be done for teenagers who feel self-aware about their oversized breasts and want to avoid any possible medical implications as a result of the extra weight on the upper body.

How is the Surgery Performed?

A breast reduction surgery aims to remove excess fat, skin, and glandular tissue from the breasts to reshape and resize them into smaller and more proportionate breasts that accommodate and complement your body. Once the breasts are reshaped, the nipples will be relocated to an ideal position to fit the new shape. This will reduce the size of large areolas but will also result in no more breastfeeding afterwards. The purpose of this procedure is to relieve the upper body from dealing with excessive weight from large and pendulous breasts to work towards a healthier and more proportionate solution for women with oversized breasts.

What Can I Expect During Recovery?

You will be required to wear a surgical bra for 6 weeks to 3 months after your surgery – while your body heals, and your breasts adapt their new shape. During this time, the swelling and bruising will heal. You can expect some pain and discomfort when you move around or cough. Therefore, we advise that you take it easy during your recovery period. Your surgeon will prescribe some painkillers to manage any pain or discomfort. It is pivotal to use your prescribed medication, as other painkillers might alter blood coagulation and have a negative effect on the healing process. If you smoke, be prepared to quit smoking during your recovery period and a few months before your surgery.

Breast Lift

What To Expect from a Breast Lift Surgery

A breast lift surgery can be an ideal solution for women who want to correct a loss in firmness and volume in their breasts. There are several reasons for sagging breasts. These include pregnancy, breastfeeding, gravity, age, and collagen loss in the skin. This type of surgery is not a permanent solution, but a corrective surgery to reconstruct sagging breasts for a perkier and more youthful shape. If you are considering a breast lift, Centurion Cosmetic Clinic is your first choice in Gauteng.

Considering a Breast Lift

If you are considering a breast lift surgery, a consultation with one of our professional surgeons can give you the opportunity to discuss the various benefits that this surgery can possibly hold for your body. Your surgeon will give you an in-depth assessment to give you a clear picture of what to expect from the surgery and the possible results. Depending on your lineage and age, your surgeon may also request a mammogram. If you choose to go through with the surgery, you will be instructed on how to prepare your body for a breast lift. If you smoke, prepare to quit smoking for a 2-month period before and after the surgery to optimise oxygen flow in your body and help the healing process on a cellular level.

What Does the Procedure Entail?

The purpose of a breast lift surgery is to remove excess fat and skin tissue from the breasts to allow the surgeon to reshape them into perkier and more youthful shapes. The nipples will also be relocated once the breasts are reshaped to address large areolas. However, this means that you cannot breastfeed anymore.

During the recovery period, it is important to take the time to give your body to heal properly. You can expect some pain and discomfort, which can be managed by prescribed painkillers. It is also important to keep your expectations realistic and in line with your own body. A breast lift surgery improves the shape of your breasts by correcting any sagginess. It can also be combined with a breast enlargement surgery to add volume and size once the breasts have been reshaped.

Breast Enlargement

Breast Enlargements in Gauteng

Breast enlargement surgery is a cosmetic procedure for women who want to enhance their body contours by proportionately increasing the size and bust of their breasts. It is also an answer for breast reconstruction and to correct any size imbalance. The procedure consists of inserting silicone implants behind each breast to add 1 or more cup sizes by enhancing the volume, bust, and size of the breasts. The implants are usually inserted directly underneath the breast tissue or beneath the chest wall muscle. If you are considering a breast enlargement surgery, Centurion Cosmetic Clinic is your answer!

Where Does It Start?

When you consider a breast enlargement, it is best to book a consultation with a professional surgeon on the matter.

By keeping your expectations of the final results within realistic parameters, you might be an ideal candidate for a breast enlargement surgery to enhance the contours of your body.

What Happens Throughout Surgery?

Breast enlargement surgery will consist of your surgeon inserting silicone implants. Your surgeon will choose an optimal way to insert and position the implants based on your body and your surgeon’s recommendations. The surgeon will make an incision in the crease where the breast and the chest meet to ensure that the scars are as inconspicuous as possible. Then, the surgeon will proceed to insert and position the silicone implants to ensure that they are perfectly placed before the incisions are stitched up.

What Happens Afterwards?

During the first days of recovery, you can expect some pain and discomfort. You will receive a prescription for medication to specifically deal with any discomfort while your body is recovering from surgery. If you smoke, prepare to quit for at least 2 months after the surgery. This will optimise oxygen flow in your body to help the healing process on a cellular level. You can also expect some swelling. Not to worry, the swelling will subside after about 3 to 5 weeks. Your surgeon may also request that you wear a sports-bra during recovery.

Surgical Facelift

A Rejuvenated and More Youthful Appearance with a Surgical Facelift

People are living longer lives with every generation, showing that various medical advancements and modern medicines are effective to increase our overall life expectancy. Unfortunately, the signs of aging will come along with a longer life. These signs will start in the facial areas around the eyes, nose, and mouth. A surgical facelift can address these issues to allow you to turn back the effects of aging for a while and have a rejuvenated and more youthful facial appearance. Our skin is also affected by a variety of other damaging factors that can cause wrinkles and loose skin to develop as we get older.

The Effects of Aging on the Skin

Collagen and elastin will determine the structural wellbeing and elasticity of your skin. Collagen is the main structural protein of our skin, while elastin helps the skin to be firm and elastic. Aging causes a loss of collagen and elastin cells and production in our skin. This leads to aging signs such as loose skin, wrinkles, and heavy eyelids. The effects of gravity and consistent exposure to the sun will also cause your skin to be more susceptible to the effects of aging.

The Procedure

A surgical facelift is designed to improve the visible signs of aging by removing excess fat from specified areas on the face and tightening the underlying muscles. This will smooth out wrinkles and tighten up loose skin in the treated facial areas. This procedure is not a permanent solution to aging signs but can take care of wrinkles and creases that have formed over the years for a rejuvenated appearance.

Am I Too Old for a Surgical Facelift?

An ideal candidate for a surgical facelift has a well-defined facial bone structure and skin that is still healthy and elastic enough for this type of procedure. Candidates are usually between 40 and 60 years of age. However, surgical facelifts have been performed on older people who still have healthy skin. Therefore, if you are considering a surgical facelift, it starts with booking a consultation with a professional surgeon to give you a fair and comprehensive assessment on how this procedure can work for you. If you are a smoker, prepare to refrain from smoking for 2 months before and after your surgery to optimise oxygen flow in your body to help the healing process on cellular level.

Centurion Cosmetic Clinic is your answer for various cosmetic surgical solutions in Gauteng. We offer a variety of procedures for both women and men, including a surgical facelift, liposuction, and ear surgery. Feel free to book a consultation with one of our surgeons today.

Eyelid Surgery

Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery for Protruding Eyelids

Blepharoplasty, the medical term for a cosmetic eyelid surgery, is a procedure that addresses the excess skin on the upper eyelids and the fat deposits underneath the eyes. This procedure is designed to reduce protruding upper eyelids and baggy lower eyelids for a more desirable and youthful appearance. As we get older, signs of aging will usually affect the areas around our eyes, leading to saggy eyelids, wrinkles, and creases. If you want to turn back the effects of aging, our cosmetic eyelid surgery can be your solution.

The Causes of Baggy Eyelids

Baggy eyelids are caused by fat accumulation around the eyes and underneath the eyelids. This condition can be genetic, or simply caused as a result of aging. Sagging upper eyelids are some of the first signs of aging. Baggy lower eyelids can also develop because of aging. In some cases, the upper eyelids protrude to a point where they can impair vision and field of view. Therefore, cosmetic eyelid surgery can be a medical solution for people with such a problem.

What Should I Expect when Considering Eyelid Surgery?

As we get older, our eyesight will slowly wear down, causing a variety of problems that require professional medical solutions. If you are considering cosmetic eyelid surgery, it is critical that your surgeon is fully aware of any current medical treatments regarding your eyes. This allows your surgeon to give you a comprehensive assessment during your consultation. If you are a smoker, prepare to refrain from smoking for 2 months before and after the surgery to optimise oxygen flow in your body. This will assist with a healthy and speedy recovery.

Consulting One of Our Surgeons

When consulting your surgeon about cosmetic eyelid surgery, they can give you a proper assessment on how the procedure can potentially help you with any eyelid sagging and what you can expect from the results. Therefore, you can make an informed decision that is based on your own personal assessment from a professional surgeon. Eyelid surgery can be much more than just a rejuvenation of baggy and heavy eyelids. We can also direct you to a financial consultant if you need any financial assistance to pay for your surgery.

Centurion Cosmetic Clinic is your answer for a variety of cosmetic surgical solutions in Gauteng.

Male Liposuction

Male Liposuction Solutions

Men who lead a healthy lifestyle take pride in their physical appearance. Sadly, stubborn fat deposits can get in the way of that perfectly sculpted body. Although you can try to burn these fat cells naturally, you will need a different approach to get rid of stubborn fat deposits. Male liposuction is a feasible solution for this predicament. The process of sculpting your body lowers the fat percentage in your body, starting with a balanced dietary intake and daily exercise. As a result, stubborn fat deposits can show up on specific parts of the body such as the abdomen, chest, flanks, and neck.

Getting Rid of Problematic Fat Deposits

The fat cells in the body are responsive to our lifestyle. As a result, if you maintain a healthy lifestyle, your body will consistently burn excess fat to keep the fat cells underneath your skin under control. During the process of burning fat, non-responsive fat cells can create a fat deposit that stands out like a sore thumb on an otherwise perfectly shaped body. Male liposuction can surgically remove these deposits from your body. Therefore, you can work towards your ideal body without any lumps that are caused by fat deposits underneath the skin.

How Does Male Liposuction Work?

Male liposuction aims to break down and vacuum fat deposits from underneath the skin. Your surgeon will make a small incision next to the affected area on your body to allow the cannula access to the fat deposits. From here, your surgeon will break down the deposits with the cannula and vacuum them from your body. The result is a flatter, slimmer, and more sculpted body that is free of non-responsive fat cells. If you are a smoker, prepare to refrain from smoking for 2 months before and after your surgery to optimise oxygen flow in your body to help the healing process on cellular level.

Centurion Cosmetic Clinic is your first choice when it comes to liposuction for men and women in Gauteng. If you require a solution to non-responsive fat deposits, we have your covered.

Male Breast Reduction

Gynaecomastia – Male Chest Reduction

Gynaecomastia is a condition that develops as a result of a hormonal imbalance. It causes a protruding chest for men suffering from this common condition. Our male breast reduction surgery can break down the fat deposits underneath the chest to reduce the swelling and the effect of gynaecomastia. This condition can cause men to be self-aware of their physical appearance, along with limiting their wardrobe options.

Causes of Gynaecomastia

Gynecomastia causes enlargement of male breast tissue and can cause men suffering from this condition to feel shame and embarrassment. During puberty, some hormonal surges can lead to the growth of male breast tissue as a result of an imbalance. Sometimes, the breast tissue will shrink after going through puberty. However, in the majority of cases, the breasts will remain enlarged. Asymptomatic gynecomastia is prevalent in about 60% to 90% of children, 50% to 60% in adolescents, and up to 70% in men between 50 and 69 years of age. The most frequent causes of gynecomastia consist of puberty, excessive weight gain, anabolic steroids, marijuana, and a variety of medication that could cause the breast tissue to enlarge.

Do I Have Gynaecomastia?

Gynecomastia would normally affect both breasts. The breast tissue is usually located directly underneath the nipple-areolar complex. It should feel like a palpable, tender, firm, mobile, disc-like mound of tissue that is softer than a cancer cell would normally be. If these masses are hard and associated with skin or nipple discharge, you might be dealing with breast cancer as opposed to gynaecomastia.

Booking Your Consultation

If you are considering a male breast reduction surgery, you can book a consultation with one of our surgeons. By consulting a professional surgeon, you will receive an in-depth walkthrough of the procedure and how it can work for you. Your surgeon can also give you useful guidelines on how to prepare for your surgery and what to expect during recovery. We can also direct you to a financial consultant if you need financial assistance to pay for your surgery.

Ear Surgery

Surgical Solutions for Protruded Ears

Cosmetic ear surgery is a surgical solution for people with prominent and protruding ears. The surgery is simple and safe to be performed on adults and children. The surgery involves setting the ears closer to the side of the head by sculpting and folding the cartilages. Since ears completely develop in shape at a young age, prominent ears can lead to a lifetime of ridiculing from peers for children. Therefore, otoplasty is feasible for children to ensure that they can avoid any shaming and bullying as a result of the shape of their ears.

The Procedure

Cosmetic ear surgery is done under general anaesthesia. The surgery starts with the surgeon that makes an incision on the back of the ear to access the cartilage. Form here, the surgeon can fold and sculpt the cartilage to align the ear closer to the side of the head. Once the cartilage has been folded and sculpted, the incision is stitched up to hold the ear in its new shape. After the surgery, the patient’s head is wrapped with a bandage to hold the ears in place while they adopt their new shape during the recovery period.

Can Otoplasty Work for Adults Too?

Although it is mostly performed on children, cosmetic ear surgery can also be an answer for adults with prominent ears. During recovery, you can expect your ears to throb or ache for a few days. Your surgeon will prescribe specific painkillers to manage the pain or discomfort during this time. If you are a smoker, prepare to refrain from smoking for at least 2 months before and after the surgery to ensure optimal oxygen flow throughout your body to help the healing process on a cellular level.

Booking a Consultation

If you are considering ear surgery for yourself or your child, you can book a consultation with one of our surgeons on the topic. Our surgeons can give you an in-depth walkthrough of the procedure and the results that you can expect from it. Therefore, you can make an informed decision on the procedure, based on a professional opinion and assessment of your body. We can also direct you to a financial consultant if you need financial assistance to pay for your surgery.

Tummy Tuck

Dealing with Protruding Abdomens

Abdominoplasty is a major surgical procedure to remove excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdominal areas. This type of cosmetic surgery is also referred to a tummy tuck and serves as a solution to reduce the appearance of a protruding abdomen. It is not an instant way to shed some weight and centimetres around the abdomen since regular exercise and a balanced dietary intake are still recommended for initial weight loss. However, women who had several pregnancies or severe weight loss might have developed some loose skin. These issues can be addressed with abdominoplasty.

How Does the Procedure Work?

The surgical procedure allows the surgeon to remove excess skin and fat deposits from the middle and lower abdominal areas. The surgeon will also tighten the abdominal muscle wall to result in a flatter and slimmer appearance. By surgically tightening the skin and muscle wall and removing any fatty deposits in the vicinity, you can expect a sculpted abdomen, ridding your body of any loose skin and fat in the vicinity.

What Should I Do When I Consider a Tummy Tuck?

Your tummy tuck starts by booking a consultation with a professional surgeon on this topic. When consulting our surgeon, you will get a complete assessment of your body and how a tummy tuck can work for you. You can also expect an in-depth walkthrough on how to prepare for the procedure and what to expect during recovery afterwards. Should you need any financial assistance, we can align you with a financial aid to help pay for your surgery.

Once your surgery is complete, your body must heal, needing time to recover. You can expect some swelling and pain from your middle and lower abdomen for the first few days. You will receive specific prescribed painkillers to deal with the pain and discomfort. If you are a smoker, prepare to refrain from smoking for at least 2 months before and after your surgery, to optimise oxygen flow in your body to help the healing process on cellular level. You will also be instructed on how to shower and change your clothes while your body is healing.

Liposuction

Considering Liposuction to Deal with Fat Deposits

Liposuction is a surgical technique that removes fat cells from underneath the skin. This technique can be an option for both women and men who want to sculpt their bodies and be rid of stubborn fat deposits. It can also treat gynaecomastia, which is a condition for men, commonly known as man boobs. Liposuction cannot replace conventional methods of losing weight. However, it is an option to remove stubborn fat deposits that could form while in the process of losing weight and sculpting your body.

When you live a healthy lifestyle and have a balanced and healthy diet, you can consider liposuction when you are looking for a way to reduce stubborn fat deposits on areas such as the thighs, knees, buttocks, abdomen, upper arms, chin, and cheeks. Conventional weight loss allows your body to naturally reduce the size of fat cells underneath your skin through regular exercise and a balanced dietary intake. However, this process can also reveal non-responsive fat cells. Liposuction can be a feasible option for dealing with these stubborn deposits.

The Procedure

This technique serves as a popular and highly effective method to remove fat cells from the body as opposed to reducing their size naturally. Liposuction has developed and progressed into advanced methods of targeting fat cells beneath the skin more efficiently as medical technologies such as sonar and compressed air can assist to target more sensitive areas on the body. The basic technique involves inserting a cannula into a small incision at the targeted area of the body, allowing the cannula to break down and vacuum stubborn fat deposits for a slimmer and firmer look. Vibro-liposuction adds compressed air to the cannula to allow for vibrations when breaking down the fat cells.
