Many patients often feel distressed post pregnancy and are unhappy with their droop breasts. Naturally, there are many other reasons aside from pregnancy and breastfeeding that causes droopy breasts – for example, some patients are concerned over loose skin that has lost its firmness whilst others are simply unsatisfied with the size and volume of their breasts and would like a lift.
To summarise, the purpose of a Breast Lift (Mastopexy) is:
To raise the level of the nipple and areola
To improve the firmness of the breast by removing excess skin
To improve the shape and contour of the breast
To increase the volume of the breast by inserting an implant
Often when we think about Laser, for many people they only associate it with Laser Hair Removal.
Did you know that Laser can also be used to improve the appearance of your skin?
Laser Treatment uses high-energy laser light that is directed onto the skin. The damaged and aged superficial skin layers are then vaporized to expose deeper layers, which are more youthful. This then triggers the skin to stimulate production of new collagen and new skin cells, which helps to plump up skin and smooth out wrinkles and other skin irregularities.
Laser Skin Rejuvenation or Skin Resurfacing can help target a wide array of skin concerns such as wrinkles, scars or fine lines. The procedure is also fantastic for improving overall complexion in terms of skin texture, evenness, clarity and discolouration. Ultimately the aim is to refresh your skin and restore a more youthful look.
So you've identified your skin issues but which laser method do you select?
Quite often we find ourselves with a skin issue – be it acne, pigmentation, sensitive skin or simply ageing skin that loses its freshness and even tone/colour. For some it’s a prolonged concern whilst for others they may occur spontaneously. This week, Dr Edinburg shares insight into some of these common skin problems and accordingly, talks about possible solutions.

Have you ever wondered what the ideal nose looks like?
The nose is essentially a central focal point of the face, making it a pivotal feature in defining facial symmetry, balance and proportion. Neoclassical Greek canons indicate that the nasal bridge inclination should be the same as the ear inclination for ideal facial harmony.
Studies of facial proportion show that the balance of the distance between various facial points can be the ‘make or break’ of perfect facial symmetry.
Rhinoplasty (Nose Job Surgery) is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries, as results can be remarkable in transforming one’s facial appearance. Whether it’s a bump that’s bothering you or if you’d like to alter the size of your nose – a Nose Job can help to improve these concerns.
