Gluteal augmentation is a way to change the size and shape of your buttocks surgically. Fat transfers and buttock implants are the most popular methods of changing the size and shape of your buttocks. These methods are intended to give a natural curve to the buttocks either through an implant or fat transfer.


Reasons why someone may undergo gluteal augmentation

  • Weight loss – When a large amount of weight is lost there will normally we a large amount of skin left. This skin may be very loose and saggy causing discomfort. This normally happens in previously fatty areas such as the buttocks, breasts, stomach, thighs and stomach.

  • Increase in size – People may just want to increase the size of their buttocks. Within certain cultures, it is considered very beautiful to have a larger behind so some people may be doing it for this reason.

  • Flatness – A person may be born with a naturally slimmer figure which may cause a flatter behind. People may not have an issue with this, however, some women may feel like their figure may need to be curvier so they opt for surgery.


Implants

Buttock implants should mainly be used in the case of insufficient fat deposits for a Brazilian Butt Lift. The implant is made out of soft silicone to give a natural feel. The implant is placed under the muscle to prevent movement and an unnatural look. Using buttock implants gives a more feminine contoured look to your buttocks to enhance your profile. This procedure is usually carried out under general anaesthesia; once the patient is asleep two medium sized incisions are made between each buttock cheek in the midline. This incision goes through the gluteus muscle to create a pocket large enough for the implant. Once the implant is inserted the incision is then closed and then repeated on the other buttock.

However, we do not use implants as they carry a large risk of infection and ruptures. 


Fat Transfer 

Fat transfer to the buttocks is done using liposuction transferring fat from one area of the body to the buttocks. A fat transfer gives an all-natural enlargement to the buttocks.  The procedure starts with the fat harvesting. At our clinic, we use the tumescent anaesthetic technique. The patient is injected with numbing fluids in the areas where the fat will be removed (local anaesthesia) Liposuction is then used to remove the fat. Once all of the fat is collected it is that purified and filtered so it is ready for injection. The healthy fat is then put into a syringe which is then injected into certain areas of the buttocks to enlarge it.

Lip fillers are an effective and temporary way of enlarging your lips. Which means every 4-6 months you have to return clinic for a top up to keep your lips looking full. PermaLip, also known as SurgiSil, are implants which are a permanent way of keeping your lips full.


What is it?

PermlaLip or SurgiSil is a lip Implant which is created to look smooth and natural. The Lip implants are made out of soft but solid silicone which is FDA approved. The implants are contoured to the natural shape of lips to create a natural yet enhanced look. These implants can’t rupture or deflate and can be removed at any time.

Benefits of Lip implants

 

  • Permalip implants are not injectable

  • They are naturally contoured to fit the face

  • The implants have a smooth surface which reduces the chance of tissue re-growth (capsular contracture)

  • The implants are permanent however they can be removed easily

  • They vary in sizes and shapes

  • They cannot rupture or deflate

 

How lip implants are implanted

 

The procedure is performed under local anaesthesia. After the mouth is numb two little incisions are made in the corners of each side of the mouth. A tunnel is then created using a small cannula, creating this cannula will make it easier and quicker for the implant to pass through. The surgeon uses a special tool to pass through the implant. Once the implant is in the surgeon will massage the lips to put the implant in the correct place. The Incisions are then stitched shut and the process is repeated on the second lip. This process can all be finished within half an hour! With any procedure, there will be swelling and soreness but using a cold compress will combat these symptoms. When moving your lips for the first days you must be careful of the Incisions to avoid infection. You will be able to return to normal activities the following day.

Blepharoplasty London is also known as eyelid surgery, it is performed to remove any excess skin located in the upper and lower eyelids to remove hooded eyelids or ‘eye bags’.Upper and lower eyelid surgery can be performed under local anaesthetic or general anaesthetic. General anaesthetic is used if both eyelids are being operated on. Blepharoplasty London on the upper eyelid is performed by the surgeon making an incision on the crease of the skin fold located on the eyelid and allows the surgeon to remove unwanted skin. The surgeon then closes the incision made on the eyelid and will ensure that any scars in the fold of the eyelid is hidden. Surgery on the lower eyelid is done to remove fat or bags by an incision being made below the bottom eyelashes or on the inside of the eyelid. Excess skin may be removed but only a small amount and the muscle which closes the eye is not harmed. Once the surgery is completed suture strips are applied to the eyelids to provide them with support, they are removed after 3-5 days.
Blepharoplasty London

Why is Blepharoplasty performed? Blepharoplasty London is performed for many different reasons. For surgery on the upper eyelids it is often chosen because of excess skin and fat which can cause the eyelid to look heavy making the eyes looking aged and can even restrict vision. For patients from Asian countries sometimes they wish to have double eyelid surgery to create an upper eyelid crease wish can be known as ‘Westernization of the eyelid’. This surgery is performed by cutting a fold into the eyelid creating a double fold to widen their eyes, which is seen as creating a westernized look. Lower eyelid Blepharoplasty is performed to remove any excess skin which reduces wrinkles and can also improve the shape of the lower eyelid by the removal of skin and fat. The eyelid is sometimes required to be tightened to remove sagging or droopiness of the skin. Fat can be added to the eyelid also if the patient feels they have a hollowed appearance caused by the eyelids.

How does excess skin become sagged or drooped? There are many factors that can cause eyelids to appear aged or sagging. The skin can lose its elasticity and the muscles in the eyelid slack with age, this results in the loose skin being created when folds in the upper eyelid forms which causes deep creases to be created in the lower eyelids. The muscle beneath the skin is then loosened and allows the fat that aids the eyes in the sockets to come forward which results in the eyes appearing ‘baggy’. In some cases eye ‘bags’ can be hereditary and are caused during early adulthood. Eye bags seem more common in the morning due to potential long-term stress and lack of sleep. Fluid which is normally distributed in the body in the day however during the night can appear where there is loose skin for example the eyelids. Ageing can cause the drooping of the eyelids, which causes excess skin to be formed in the upper eyelids, sometimes there is a high quantity of excess skin which causes problems such as restricted vision.

The IGuide Neck lift is a new procedure alternatively to the traditional neck lift and involves mini pin pricks to be created around the jaw area which is then weaved through by surgical thread , and continuously moved back and forth from each jaw bone to tighten the skin making it more smooth, tighter and resulting in a more defined neck and jaw line. This procedure is done under local anaesthesia and usually takes one hour in total.


The IGuide neck lift and traditional neck lift

In the traditional neck lift, it involves making an incision behind the ear as well as in front of the ear so that the fatty tissues are then lifted off from the underlying muscle and the connective tissue is then moved as necessary in order to reduce the loose skin present. If the patient wishes to have more tightened skin then the underlying muscle and the fascia are tightened using sutures (row of stitches). The skin is then moved back and upwards and any excess skin is removed. The incisions/wound is then closed to make sure the bleeding has stopped and covered with a bandage. The IGuide neck lift procedure is recommended over the traditional neck lift procedure because the IGuide procedure is; less painful, quicker recovery, reduced swelling and is a shorter procedure. Another reason to choose the IGuide neck lift is the fact there will be no incisions or scarring behind the ear. Both of the neck lift procedures last the same amount of time in terms of the effects of the procedure. The risks of the procedures are similar which are; swelling, infection, bleeding, numbness and scarring. However, the traditional neck lift is more liable for the risks to occur as the incision has to be done behind the ear. Another potential risk is the row of stitching (sutures) may be visible however it’s very unlikely. But this can be corrected by the surgeon using local anaesthesia if necessary. The IGuide neck lift is actually considerably cheaper than traditional neck lift surgery which is another reason to opt for this procedure. IGuide neck lift

Recovery time

The recovery time can be very quick, normally it takes up to several days and most patients are back to work after 3-5 days. The only effect that may prevent the patient from attending work would be due to the swelling and bruising. Vigorous activity such as sport should be avoided until the neck has fully recovered but normal activities can be done after 1-2 days.

What better way than to surprise your special someone with a gift under the mistletoe this Christmas, right? Or are you afraid that your lips might bring you down? Have no fear because this festive season is just the perfect time to plump up your thinning lips and stop worrying about ruining the perfect moment. We have a treatment just for you that can help you achieve fuller-looking luscious lips and make your Christmas just as magical as it needs to be.

Why do my lips look thinner?

The misconception about the continuous growth of ears and nose as we age may not be true, but sadly lips truly do get thinner with age. The reason behind it is because the older we get the less collagen our body will produce, which is needed for soft luscious lips. The UV rays of the sun are no friend either. The UV rays can cause our body’s soft tissues containing the collagen to break down that then results in thinner lips over time.

What can I do?

The only natural way to protect your lips from the UV rays and maintain fuller-looking luscious lips is to either avoid the sun, which to be real is impossible, or just never fail to apply lipstick or lip balm with sunscreen when you go out. Unfortunately, even these options can only do much. If you desire a long-term result to defy age, then lipsticks and lip-balms will not be enough. Lip augmentation is the next best thing you could do for your lips. The procedure helps you maintain your shape and plumpness of your lips and if you wish to achieve even fuller luscious lips, that can be granted too.

Non-surgical lip augmentation
Non-surgical lip augmentation may be the best starting approach for thinning lips. Non-surgical lip augmentation involves dermal fillers like Juvederm,  Restylane and Teosyal that ensures a lasting result without a long-term commitment. Dermal fillers can last six to eight months and the procedure takes only about 15-30 minutes of your time. It is a simple procedure with minimal pain and most importantly gives excellent results. However, our surgeons also do recommend 2-3 sessions of lip injectables in order to achieve the best look. Also, keep in mind that the results of this procedure are impermanent and so you will have to return for touch-ups for the period of time that you may want to maintain the achieved look. Doesn’t it sound like a perfect Christmas gift for both you and your special someone?

mistletoe ready lips During this time, you can experiment on a different level of plumpness and then decide if you want a more permanent solution for your thinning lips. That’s when the surgical technique of lip augmentation comes in.


Surgical lip augmentation
Surgical lip augmentation is a more permanent option that involves inserting a silicone implant. It is a long-term solution to defy age and maintain plump luscious lips. The procedure involves surgically inserting implants using tiny incision at the corners of the mouth and can take up to an hour for completion. The drawback is that it can be a bit more painful than the non-surgical option and may even result in bruising for the first few days. Since it is a long-term solution for lip enhancement, however, after the healing period is over you will not have to worry about the implant and you can start loving your luscious lips ready to pucker up.

Earlobe repair surgery is ideal for those who have either split earlobes caused by wearing heavy earrings or stretched earlobes caused by wearing big sized gauges.

When do you need earlobe repair surgery?

Earlobes have the most delicate skin tissues out of all the other parts of our body and that is why a lot of people experience widened ear piercing holes. If you are one of those people who like wearing heavy earrings, then you are most likely to have created a wide hole in your earlobe which could have eventually caused it to spilt. And then there is the ‘lobe gauging’ trend that lately seems to be a common sight in the streets of London. The trend of stretching the earlobes to fit these various sized circular gauges seems to be mostly appealing to the younger generation, let’s just say it’s turning into a form of fashion.

Ear stretching dangers
  • An ear blow-out which happens when the skin inside of the earlobe is forced out through the back of the piercing

  • Stretched ears have no point of returning back to looking normal except by getting earlobe repair surgery

  • Can cause pain, which according to experts should not be happening if done right

In most cases, eventually, people are getting over the lobe gauging fad and just want their earlobes to look normal again. Unfortunately, if the earlobes are torn or dramatically stretched out, then there is no natural way to repair it. That’s when you will need to opt for earlobe repair surgery to stitch your earlobe back together.

The procedure
The surgery is a 20 minutes procedure that involves stitching the tissues in the ear together to reconstruct the damage and make your ears appear normal again.

earlobe repair surgery As shown above, earlobe repair surgery involves creating a tunnel where the earring was placed previously and then skin inside the tunnel is removed and the edges are sewn back together. The procedure is done under local anaesthesia which means the client will be fully awake throughout the procedure. This is done to ensure safe treatment as well as fast recovery.

Recovery

The recovery period is fast with minimal discomfort and if necessary painkillers can be taken to ease it. There is no need to take a day off work unless you think you need it. If you still desire to have an ear pierce after the surgery, that can also be done. Just be sure to tell your surgeon so he can re-pierce it for you.

Scars after the procedure

Because the procedure involves stitching the earlobe together, a scar is unavoidable. But the scar is typically a fine line and is likely to be unnoticeable. If you desire, the stitched can be removed after a week or it will dissolve in time.

Any risks?

As it is a surgical procedure, it is likely to have potential complications but is quite minimal with this procedure. The risks usually are excessive scar formation, notching, and infection.

Chin implant surgery is designed to help reconstruct, rejuvenate and augment the contours of your face by making the chin longer or bigger compared to the nose. Most commonly doctors use your own tissues and bone to change the structure of the chin and therefore, the procedure does not involve inserting a foreign material under the skin.

The procedure
  • The chin implant procedure could take 30 minutes to an hour

  • You will be fully awake throughout the procedure under tumescent anaesthesia

  • The surgeon can restructure your chin using your own bone and tissues or even insert implants

  • A small incision is made either inside your mouth or under the chin to create a pocket

Inserting implants
  • The chin implant is placed inside the pocket that is created

  • Usually, implants for the chin is attached to the bone and tissues using sutures or screws

  • The incisions are also stitched back with sutures and leave minimal scarring that heals over time

chin implant
Using own bone and tissues
  • The incision is usually made inside the mouth along the lower gum to get easier access to the chin bone

  • A chisel is used to make a second cut through the jaw bone and is moved to reshape and resize

  • The bone is then wired or screwed in place

  • The incision is stitched back and no scarring is involved

chin implant
The result

You are likely to experience a little discomfort for a day or two following your procedure but you will be able to return to your normal activities within less than a week. A cold compress can be applied to reduce bruising and swelling if need be. It is recommended that you restrict to a soft diet for up to ten days until the incisions heal completely. And vigorous physical activity can be resumed after four to six weeks. Most patient experience an improvement in their facial structure for their whole life as chin implant procedure delivers a permanent result. However, on occasions such as infection, the implant will have to be removed. Luckily, this kind of facial problems is very rare.

When should you consider chin implant?

An ideal candidate for chin implant would be someone who has a receding, weak chin and wishes to improve their jawline. It is also suitable for someone who wishes to have a defined and fuller looking cheeks that may seem deficient with age. Chin implant can provide an overall defined facial structure and a prominent chin and cheekbones.

Are there any risks?

  • There may be a risk of infection, in case of which the implant will have to be removed

  • The implant could shift but can be moved back in it’s original place

  • Could damage facial nerves but it’s very rare

The known ‘secret’ behind Kylie’s lips

Lately everyone wants mega-plump lips like Kylie Jenner and the trend doesn’t seem to flame out at all, instead, it’s becoming more mainstream. Of course, cosmetic surgery clinics are enjoying this increasing popularity of their lip injections, but now the market has introduced a new competition in the market called the lip plumping device. Lip plumping device, a new trend on every girl’s mouth – like literally! Girls are putting these small plastic suction cups on their mouths to temporarily increase the size of their lips.

How does it work?

If you haven’t seen one yet, lip plumping device looks something like this.

lip injections vs lip plumping device They come in different shapes and sizes, all depending on how big you want your lips to look, and it promises you fuller lips just like Kylie’s in just a few minutes of, er, sucking.

Yup, that’s right! And it really does work. The plastic suction cup draws blood to your lips as you suck on it which swells them up, temporarily increasing the size of your lips. Emphasizing the word ‘temporary’, the inflammation effect lasts only just about 2 hours before the swelling goes down. To simply put it, the device is easy to use, cheap, gives instant result but also lasts for a very short period of time, reasonable value for a reasonable price. But before you start considering buying one of these, hold your horses!


The downside

Just like how the #KylieJennerLipChallenge stirred up health issues that got even Doctors involved, this plastic cup suction has similar problems. Turns out all the sucking can cause your lips to dry out, leading to painful fine lines around the mouth, Ouch! And even worse, it could lead to a permanent discoloured ring around the mouth due to the blood clot that happens during the process of lip suction. All that for just 2 hours of #KylieJennerLips – is it worth it?

The safer alternative

Lip injections on the other-hand are clinically approved and have been in practice for many years, so of course, it’s safe. But like any other procedures, lip injections does have it’s own side effects but is almost entirely painless thanks to its aesthetic benefits. Lip injections or fillers are a natural way to enhance the volume, definition and overall shape of your lips. Besides that, lip injections can also improve the signs of ageing by filling the lines and wrinkles, which can also be caused by smoking. The procedure takes approximately 20 minutes and the results can be seen immediately after. It’s quick and painless just like the lip plumping device but the result lasts from 3 to 6 months and sometimes even a whole year depending on how quickly the person’s body breaks down the injectable solution. The only thing you will probably have to worry about is the swelling, but for most people that go away 2 days after the treatment. After that, you’ll have long-lasting luscious lips like you’ve always imagined and I bet you’ll be taking 500 selfies in one go just like Kylie Jenner – ok maybe not to that extent! As for the lip plumping device, just be gentle to your lips and don’t over-do it because you don’t want any permanent damages. It won’t be worth it. Good Luck!

Erase the lines

Signs of ageing are something we all will sadly fall victim to at some point in our lives. Out of many signs of ageing, forehead wrinkles are perhaps the most concerning and noticeable problem for many people as it makes them appear worried, angry or just tried. No wonder old women are always mistaken as an angry and witchy person in horror movies. Over time horizontal lines over the forehead and vertical lines between the eyebrows will appear as our muscles on the forehead struggle to hold the eyebrows in its place. This gradually forms deep furrows creating forehead wrinkles. Here at London Lipo Institute, our specialists offer a few options that you can consider to minimise the lines and look more rejuvenated and refreshed.

Anti-wrinkle injections

Easy, safe, fast and affordable option to get rid of forehead wrinkles, anti-wrinkle injections are an injectable treatment that relaxes the facial muscles to smooth out the outer layer of the skin. The most common use of anti-wrinkle injections is to get rid of facial wrinkles, but it can treat migraine headaches, excessive sweating, and many other conditions The procedure can be completed in just a few minutes and require no downside. However, the results are not permanent and touch-up treatments will be required every few months to maintain the results.

Brow Lift/Forehead Lift

An ideal patient for brow lift or forehead lift surgery are people who are between 30 and 60 years old, but it can also be performed on a younger or older person if desired. The benefits of this surgery involve raising the eyebrow which can help minimise forehead wrinkles as well as help you achieve a more alert and youthful look. It can also help reposition a low or sagging eyebrow that may be hooding the upper eyelid.

Facelift

If you desire a more dramatic result, a facelift may be just perfect for you. The procedure involves tightening the muscles deep within the skin and will change the look of the lower face including cheeks, jowls, and neck. It is a perfect procedure to remove visible signs of ageing such as forehead wrinkles, sagging in the mid-face area, facial fat, etc. However, the ideal person for this procedure would be someone who is experiencing a significant amount of saggy skin and facial creases. These procedures may not take away your worries but can definitely take away any signs of it by eliminating facial problems such as forehead wrinkles and many more and leaving you with a refreshed and youthful appearance.
