As we get older, our skin stretches and starts sagging due to gravity, natural ageing process and muscular action. The common sites for this are around the eyelids, corners of the mouth and the neck. A face-lift Rhididectomy is the surgical removal of excess skin and repositioning of deep tissues. Scars are placed within the hairline near the ear, to ensure invisibility.
Beautification of the external appearance of the nose without external scar, is called Rhinoplasty. Congenital defects, injuries, disease can cause defective or ugly appearance. Reduction, augmentation, deviation correction, rearrangement in tissues of nose can be done for a visually pleasing appearance.
Body contouring can be done by removing excess fat through liposuction between the skin and depfascia, from any part of the body such as the abdomen, buttocks, flanks, thigh, calf, neck, arm etc. In earlier times, we used to remove 3 litres at a time. But now through liposuction, 8 to 12 litres of fat can be removed in the obese, as mega liposuction.
