How to Plan Your Nose Surgery?

Step-1: Set Your Expectations Right

Call it a nose job, nose reshaping, or rhinoplasty (the scientific term), the expectations remain same — a nose of your choice.
If you are thinking about getting a nose job, it is best to set up an appointment with a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon to discuss about your goals and tell him what bothers you about your nose and how you would like to change it. Identify the specific aspect of your nose that troubles you such as a hump on the bridge, tip looks like a ball, crooked nose, deviated septum, big nostrils and so on.
Your expectations are key to the success of your nose job. However, success also depends on matching your expectations with your physical characteristics, such as skin thickness and bone structure. People do sometimes bring in photographs of celebrity noses and expect to have a nose like them, but this is a dilemma because another person's nose may or may not fit your other facial features or be achievable with your skin type and nasal bone.
 If you approach rhinoplasty with such an ideal in mind, you’re setting yourself up for a potential disappointment. With a better understanding of the procedure, and a more thoughtful approach to your results, you’ve got a better chance of achieving your desired results and complete satisfaction.

Step-2: Know The Procedure

The first thing that you need to know, is that rhinoplasty surgery isn’t exactly a series of same steps to be followed in each procedure. Many surgeries tend to involve steps, but rhinoplasty needs to be fitted to the individual rather than the textbook. That being the case, each operation is going to be entirely unique and customized for your anatomy. Not only that, it will be customized specifically for the individual’s goals. A nose job is not necessarily a straight forward operation and it’s different for each person.
Generally, rhinoplasty is performed inside your nose (known as closed rhinoplasty) but there can also be a small external incision made (known as open rhinoplasty), which will allow your surgeon to readjust the bone, as well as cartilage beneath the skin. This, however, is a very simplified way of putting it, and there are definitely more complex procedures out there.
Your surgeon will be able to augment your nasal bone or nasal cartilage in many different ways. For smaller alterations, the surgeon will be able to use cartilage harvested from inside your nose or even your ear. And if your nose requires bigger changes, then your surgeon will more than likely to harvest cartilage from other parts of your body such a from around your ribs or back of your elbow. Chances are you’ll never even miss it.

Step-3: Learn about Recovery
After a nose job, you will be asked to wear a nasal splint for the first week. You can expect swelling and some bruising around the eyes after surgery that will begin to improve after the third day. This will go away over the next six months. The final shape of your nose will be apparent after it has completely healed.
You may return to your social activities as soon as within two to three weeks without any recognizable signs that you had a procedure done.

The First Several Days

During the first 48 hours after surgery, it is important to get plenty of rest. In particular, people should:
  • ·       Sleep with their heads elevated
  • ·       Wear clothes that button, rather than go on over the head
  • ·       Brush their teeth gently to avoid irritating the upper lip and nose
  • ·       Keep their faces still as much as possible
  • ·       Apply cold compresses to the nose and mid-face
  • ·       Eat soft foods that still have plenty of nutrients and fiber
  • ·       Take baths, rather than showers, while the bandages remain in place
  • ·       Avoid blowing their noses
  • ·       Change bandages and gauze, as instructed by their doctors

The First Several Weeks

Typically, patients can return to work within two weeks of their surgeries. However, they should continue to monitor their activity level and protect the tender nasal tissues. Among other things, patients should:
·       Avoid strenuous exercise until otherwise instructed by their surgeons
·       Limit sodium intake to reduce post-surgical swelling
·       Wear sunscreen with at least 30 SPF whenever they go outside
·       Not wear glasses or sunglasses for at least four weeks (if needed, patients can use chin rests to support the frames)

Step-4: Understand the Risks

When performed by a qualified plastic surgeon, rhinoplasty is a safe procedure with few long-term complications. However, all surgeries do carry some risks. It is important for patients to be aware of these risks so that they can monitor their healing and contact their doctor if they notice anything unusual.

Step-5: Find Out The Benefits

Among the aesthetic rhinoplasty benefits are:
Facial Symmetry - The slightest imbalance in a person's nose can make a distinct difference in their appearance. Rhinoplasty can create a more balanced look.
Improved Shape- Altering the bridge or tip of the nose can draw attention to other areas of the face.
Proportionate Size - Reducing the width of the nose, even by a small amount, can have a significant effect on how the nose fits in with the rest of the facial features.
Removal of Bumps or Crookedness ­- Whether congenital or caused by past injury, rhinoplasty can correct imperfections on the bridge of the nose.

The two main functional rhinoplasty benefits are:
Improve Breathing Difficulties - Rhinoplasty can open narrow nasal passages and correct structural abnormalities, improving a patient's breathing abilities
Correct Birth Defects - Nose surgery can address external abnormalities, as well as internal birth defects, such as a deviated septum.

Step-6: Discover the Results

Rhinoplasty is unique in that the final results of the surgery can take up to one full year to develop. In the months following surgery the nose will begin to settle in to its final shape. Because the final results of rhinoplasty take a significant amount of time, doctors usually discourage patients from undergoing revision rhinoplasty until a full year has passed.
As far as guaranteeing those results goes, keep in mind that rhinoplasty is a highly complicated and complex surgery requiring expert knowledge, experience, and top-notch skills. To get the best results you can, start with the best plastic surgeon plan your surgery. While you can’t get a guarantee on any surgery you’ll have, choosing your surgeon wisely is your best chance for success.

Breast Lift For Youthful Breasts

Sagging or droopy breasts can occur in a number of circumstances. Losing weight can cause the breasts to sag since volume is lost. There’s a lot of fat in the breast and if you tend to lose weight in your breasts, you’ll probably lose volume too. It’s also believed that larger breasts (more volume i.e. more weight) tend to sag more quickly due to gravity and other contributing factors. When pregnancy is coupled with weight gain and loss, there is noticeable drop in the breasts. Age also affect breasts in terms of sagging, but is not as much of a factor as pregnancy and genetics because fluctuating hormone levels and breast-feeding are the main causes of breast changes during and after pregnancy. Breast tenderness can start as early as a few weeks into pregnancy. After about eight weeks, your breasts begin to enlarge. Many women increase by as much as two cup sizes. Breasts grow to make room for the expanding milk ducts during pregnancy and after breastfeeding is stopped; the glands shrink and the breasts lose fullness. This expansion of breasts also stretches skin to store the volume but expansion of skin does not contract back when this volume is lost that result in breasts sagging. In fact, most sagging results from overstretched skin. These changes experienced during pregnancy can leave breasts on the saggy side making you look unconfident about your physique. Some women start to feel so conscious about their figure after childbirth that they tend to feel depress and hesitate being social. Young women with loosely hanging breasts may especially feel self-conscious wearing swimsuits and other types of clothing and it makes them feel that they are no more as young and attractive as they used to be. If you want a long-lasting solution to this unattractiveness, you may want to consider a breast lift. A breast lift, also known as a mastoplexy, is the only way to reposition the breast back to where it belongs. The goal of a breast lift is to restore the breasts to a higher, more youthful position.

Breast lift or mastopexy is a procedure designed to bring the drooping breast back up to a more youthful position. This is accomplished by removal of excess skin in a fashion that cones the breast into an attractive, more upright shape while elevating the position of the centre part of the breasts.  There are different approaches to achieve this depending upon the extent of sagginess.

Vitiligo or White Patches - Is there any way to get rid of them?

Vitiligo (white patch or SAFED DAAG) is a skin condition in which loss of skin color (pigment) occurs; resulting in irregular white patches that feel like normal skin but looks different is color. White patches never harm you physically but unattractive appearance is always undesirable. It may appear at any age and any part of body. Vitiligo most often affects the face, elbows and knees, hands and feet, and genitals. Though difficult to treat, proper medication & surgery by good hands results into satisfactory results.

Is there any permanent treatment to get rid of white patches?
Vitiligo is often difficult to treat. Early treatment options are medication by experienced dermatologist. But once the spots become stable, the white skin can be removed and replaced by new normal coloured skin by dextrous plastic surgeon.

What is the right time to perform surgery on vitiligo?
Once the white spots become stable (neither increasing nor decreasing) for at least one year, this is the right time to under go for plastic surgery. Small patches can be directly excised & repaired, while large spots need removal of white layers & its replacement by normal coloured skin.

What precautions would you suggest after vitiligo surgery?
Massage of the area by prescribed ointments, compression garments and adequate sun-protection is needed for at least one year to get a good result. With proper post-operative precaution you can get a nearly normal looking skin.

मस्से को हटाने का सबसे सुरक्षित तरीका क्या है?

किसी भी प्रकार के तिल या मस्से को प्रशिक्षित प्लास्टिक एवं कॉस्मेटिक सर्जन के द्वारा निकाला जाना सबसे सुरक्षित व आदर्श तरीका है. मस्से आकार में धीरे धीरे बढते ही रहते हैं इसलिए इन्हें शुरुवात में ही निकलवा देना उचित रहता है. हालांकि मस्से को सर्जरी से निकालने की प्रक्रिया सुनने में कष्टप्रद लगती है किन्तु सर्जरी के दौरान दर्द का कोई एहसास नही होता क्योंकि इसे सुन्न करने के बाद निकाला जाता है और यही मस्से निकालने का सबसे सुरक्षित, स्थायी व तीव्र माध्यम है। इस प्रक्रिया में तिल/मस्सा को त्वचा के अंदर तक छांटा जाता है और फिर टांके लगाकर उस जगह बंद कर दिया जाता है जिसपर एक छोटी सी टेप लगा दी जाती है. इस प्रक्रिया के तुरंत बाद ही मस्से से छुटकारा मिल जाता है और इस तरह मस्सा जड़ से खत्म हो जाता है. ये एक फास्ट प्रोसीजर है अर्थात इसमे हॉस्पिटल में एडमिट रहने की ज़रूरत नही होती और मस्से को निकलवाने के बाद आप उसी दिन घर जा सकते सकते हैं और अपना रोज़मर्रा का सारा काम शुरू कर सकते हैं.

क्या कॉस्मेटिक सर्जरी से पूरा चेहरा बदला जा सकता है?

क्या कॉस्मेटिक सर्जरी से पूरा चेहरा बदला जा सकता है? क्या किसी और की तरह हुबहू दिखना संभव है?
अक्सर लोग ये सवाल लेकर सामने आते हैं, अगर आप भी इस बारे में जानना चाहते हैं तो आगे पढ़ें... 

प्रीती जिंटा के गालों के डिम्पल उसके चेहरे पर खूब फबते हैं क्योंकि यह उसके फेशियल फीचर्स की विशेषता हैं, किन्तु यही डिम्पल आप पर भी उतने ही फबेंगे यह कह पाना मुश्किल है. आप अपनी इच्छा से अपने गालों पर कॉस्मेटिक सर्जरी कि मदद से डिम्पल बनवा सकते हैं, लेकिन इसके बाद भी आपका चेहरा आपका ही लगेगा, प्रीती जिंटा का नही. किसी भी कॉस्मेटिक सर्जरी का मुख्य उद्देश्य आपके शरीर के किसी अंग विशेष (जिसे आप इम्प्रूव करना चाहते हैं) को इम्प्रूव करना है, ना कि उसे किसी दूसरे व्यक्ति की तरह बना देना. अक्सर लोग ऐसा सोचते हैं कि प्लस्टिक सर्जरी और कॉस्मेटिक सर्जरी करवाने के बाद उनका पूरा चेहरा या शारीरिक बनावट बदलकर किसी वांछित व्यक्ति विशेष की तरह हो सकती है, और यह सोच लोगों में मूवीज/टी वी सीरियल्स आदि में गलत तरीके से दर्शाये जाने वाले बदलाव (प्लास्टिक सर्जरी से चेहरा बदल जाना, या जले हुए चेहरे का बिलकुल नॉर्मल बन जाना, हमशकल बना देना आदि) के कारण पैदा होती है जो कि पूरी तरह से काल्पनिक बातें हैं जबकि असल जिंदगी में ऐसा होना संभव नही है. इस वर्ष डाक्टर्स डे पर प्लास्टिक व कॉस्मेटिक सर्जन्स की ओर यह सन्देश देना है कि प्लास्टिक और कॉस्मेटिक सर्जरी अपने शारीरिक बनावट (चेहरा या शरीर का और कोई अंग) जिसे आप इम्प्रूव या करेक्ट करना चाहते हैं, उसे आपकी उम्मीदों और संभावित वैज्ञानिक तरीकों के ज़रिये ठीक या इम्प्रूव करते हैं, ना कि किसी “परफेक्ट” इमेज की नक़ल करके उसके जैसा बनाते हैं. अतः इस भ्रम को मिटाने और जागरूकता के लिए के लिए इस यह तथ्य अधिक से अधिक लोगों से शेयर करें.

Are your Eyes making you Look Older?

The eyes are one of the first features that get noticed by other people and it is also one of the first areas of the face to show the effects of aging. It’s true that your eyes can make you appear young or old. The fat around the eyes prolapses forward, leading to under-eye bags; and in the upper lids, it leads to sad or sleepy eyes. These swollen eye-bags (baggy eyelids) can give you a fatigued and elderly appearance. Eye-bags and creases are probably the first thing people notice when they guess your age because these things are usually associated with advancing age, but many different underlying conditions may also affect the appearance of the eyes. These issues become more prominent when your age approaches late 40s or early 50s. An Eyelid surgery, also known as Blepharoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure aimed to reduce under-eye “bags” and tighten sagging upper eyelid skin to give you much younger and fresher appearance. Amazingly, it is the safest scientific way to take years off your looks.

If you have noticed any of the below conditions that make you look older than your age, a blepharoplasty may benefit you and fulfil your eye rejuvenation goals:
·             Sagging upper eyelid skin
·             Puffiness or bags above or below the eyes (baggy eye-lids)
·             Excess skin and creases of the lower eyelid

The life-changing benefits of Blepharoplasty (Baggy Eyelids Correction)

The main benefit is that reduction of ‘bags under the eyes’ immediately improve your appearance. You will no longer have that tired look and if your vision was affected by drooping, puffy upper eyelids then this will no longer be a problem. Your eyelids will be both firmer and tighter. Wrinkles will be reduced and your eyes will look brighter and clearer and this will give you a more youthful appearance. You will look fresher and brighter rather than tired and stressed. These physical improvements will make you feel more confident and self-assured and will boost your self-esteem. Most people feel better psychologically and no longer get the usual comments "get some rest, you look tired".
