Facial Aesthetics Department

Facial Aesthetics In Bangalore

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 lifts, brow lifts, 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

Face lift is a facial aesthetic procedure that 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 procedures
Botox is a naturally occurring 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.

Lip Augmentation

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 involve 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/Nose correction

Rhinoplasty, also known as nose correction surgery or a nose job, is an aesthetic surgery procedure for the 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.

Genioplasty/Chin surgery

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

One of the most commonly used treatments for wrinkles is Botulinum Toxin injection, commonly known as BOTOX. It is administered in the form of an injection to the area affected by wrinkles. It acts to relax the overly contracting-muscles that cause wrinkles. The duration for which the injection is effective is around 6 months. It is a simple outpatient procedure done within 15 minutes. Sometimes, ageing also causes a loss of volume in the face which causes a tired look. In such cases, Dermal Fillers (Hyaluronic acid) can be used. Your plastic surgeon is trained to calculate the exact amount needed in a particular area. This also is an outpatient procedure done within 15 minutes. Both treatments are safe when done by qualified plastic surgeons.

The most common treatments used for facial rejuvenation are Botox, soft tissue fillers, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, micro-needling, and laser therapy. In the past decade or so, Fat Grafting has gained tremendous popularity because here we don’t need to rely on foreign substances and use the patient’s fat for rejuvenation or volume restoration. Several types of fat grafts are used like micro fat, and nano fat depending upon the indication. It is a simple daycare procedure that does not require overnight admission. If requested, it can be combined with liposuction as well, because we perform liposuction to harvest fat grafts anyways.

There are many options for skin tightening. Non-surgical options include Laser treatment which our dermatologists offer. When the skin laxity is moderate to severe, a facelift combined sometimes with a neck lift is a prudent option. It is usually a daycare procedure done under anaesthesia where excess lax skin and muscle are excised and muscle is further tightened to give a youthful look to the face.

Good candidates for a facelift are:

  • Nonsmokers
  • No health-related issues
  • No overweight

Dysport is a brand of Botox injection that helps in removing moderate to severe wrinkle lines. It is injected into the muscle which contracts excessively and produces wrinkles.

Sakra World Hospital is one of the best facial cosmetic surgery hospital in Bangalore offering state-of-the-art surgical treatments and facial services to patients. Our plastic surgeons are trained in facial surgeries and have in-depth knowledge and experience in the field of facial aesthetics.

Eyelid lift surgery which is also called blepharoplasty is a cosmetic procedure performed to correct drooping upper eyelids and bags from beneath the eyes. Eyelid lift procedure is a daycare procedure that makes you look more youthful. It also addresses the tired look which some people have due to periorbital volume loss.

Chin implant surgery also called chin augmentation reshapes the size of the chin. It is performed to enhance your looks and to make your features more balanced. Chin augmentation uses fat, bone, or synthetic implants to make a better chin. It is also a daycare procedure and the patient can go back to normal activities in 2-3 days.

Neck lift surgery also called platysmaplasty is performed to tighten the skin and remove the fat from the neck. It helps in reducing wrinkles and loose skin associated with ageing. The procedure is a daycare procedure performed under general anaesthesia. After the surgery, the plastic surgeon will wrap a pressure dressing around the head and underneath the chin.

Cheek implants also called cheek augmentation are performed to enhance cheekbones which leads to more youthful and balanced facial features. Generally, there are three shapes of cheek implants such as:

  • Malar: These implants are placed directly on the cheekbones.
  • Submalar: These implants provide fuller cheeks.
  • Combined: These implants augment both the cheekbones and the cheeks.

Jaw surgery also known as orthognathic surgery helps in correcting irregularities of the jaw bones and realigning the jaws and teeth to improve the way they work. the surgery also improves facial appearance.

It is appropriate to go for jaw surgery once the growth stops which is around 14 to 16 years for females and 17 to 21 years for males.

Jaw surgery is done to:

  • Make biting and chewing easier and improve chewing overall
  • Minimize excessive wear and breakdown of the teeth
  • Correct bite fit or jaw closure issues
  • Correct facial imbalances such as small chins, underbites, overbites, and crossbites
  • Repair facial injury and birth defects
  • Provide relief for obstructive sleep apnea

Jaw surgery is usually safe when done by an oral and maxillofacial expert surgeon in collaboration with an orthodontist. Risks of surgery include:

  • Blood loss
  • Infection
  • Nerve injury
  • Jaw fracture
  • Problem with bite fit and jaw joint pain

Upper jaw surgery is also known as maxillary osteotomy and is performed to correct protruding upper jaw, crossbite, too much or too little of the teeth showing, open bite, and reduced facial growth of the middle of the face.

Lower jaw surgery, also known as mandibular osteotomy is performed to correct receding lower jaw and protruding lower jaw.

Initial jaw healing usually takes about six weeks, but complete healing can take up to 12 weeks. After the surgery is completed, the surgeon will provide you with instructions such as:

  • To avoid tobacco
  • Avoid strenuous activity
  • Oral hygiene
  • To have food that is small and soft (liquid, soups, scrambled eggs, ice cream, yogurt, etc.)

Genioplasty is a chin surgery performed to correct a deficient chin (small chin). the surgeons can restructure the chin during the jaw surgery and secure it in a new position with plates and screws.
