Facial aesthetics is a subspecialty in aesthetic medicine that deals with aesthetic procedures of the face and neck. These procedures can range from reconstruction to cosmetic enhancement.
Facial aesthetic procedures are undertaken as part of the aesthetic surgery department. The department is staffed by a team of medical and surgical aestheticians with expertise in performing procedures such as face lift, brow lift, wrinkle correction, botox injections, rhinoplasty (nose correction), eyelid correction procedures, lip procedures including lip augmentation and lip reduction, and corrective procedures of the face and neck.
Face lift is a facial aesthetic procedure which helps to create a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance. Face lift procedures are mainly performed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and this can be done both surgically and non-surgically. Face lift involves pulling back a section of the skin and the tissue underneath is re-contoured to make the face look younger. Usually, a neck lift is also done in conjunction with a face lift for a more natural look. Face lift procedures are usually conducted under general or local anaesthesia.
Botox is a naturally-occuring chemical extracted from botulinum toxin. This chemical causes relaxation of the muscles which has various uses in medical practice, from neurology to aesthetics. In aesthetic medicine and facial aesthetics in particular, botox is used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the face. After injection of botox, the muscles relax which leads to smoothening of the skin. It takes up to 3 days for the effects to be seen and the full effect is seen only after 2 weeks. Botox procedures in Bangalore are conducted at Sakra World Hospital by expert facial aestheticians in the most hygienic conditions.
At Sakra World Hospital, we employ two main methods for lip augmentation in Bangalore, namely fillers and fat grafts. Lip augmentation involves reshaping and recontouring the lips to make them appear larger. This is often done for purely cosmetic reasons or in order to make the lips look more proportionate to the rest of the face.
Lip fillers for lip enhancement involves the use of dermal fillers made of hyaluronic acid which enhances the shape, structure, and volume of the lip tissue. This is the most common type of lip augmentation procedure. The other aesthetic procedure for lip enhancement is fat grafting. This involves removing fat from other parts of the body and transferring it to the lips. This type of lip augmentation is longer-lasting. Fat grafting for lip augmentation can be done in a minimally-invasive procedure which improves patient recovery and reduces time spent in the hospital.
Rhinoplasty, also known as nose correction surgery or a nose job, is an aesthetic surgery procedure for correction of the shape, size, or structure of the nose. Rhinoplasty can be done either to help improve breathing functions or to change the appearance of the nose for cosmetic reasons. The entire nose can be operated upon for corrective procedures, including the soft tissue and the hard cartilage.
Corrective surgery for the chin is called genioplasty. Genioplasty is often a purely cosmetic procedure but instances of rehabilitative or reconstructive chin surgery are also undertaken. Chin surgery can be chin augmentation to increase the size or prominence of the chin or reduction surgery to minimize the size of the chin. Chin augmentation is done using surgical implants and rounding or sharpening of the chin can also be done. Genioplasty is often done in conjunction with rhinoplasty to better balance the proportions of the face.
