There is no doubt that ‘Plastic Surgery Tourism’ is on the rise, as increasingly more people are jet-setting to countries like Thailand to undergo Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery. Prices may be cheaper but are you truly aware of the difference, and potential risks associated with undergoing surgery overseas? You often pay for what you get so it’s important to be cautious, especially when it’s about surgery on your face or body.
So before you begin to make travel plans to Thailand, keep in mind the following questions and considerations:
1) Do you know your Plastic Surgeon and will they provide all the comprehensive services that you need?
As a Specialist Plastic Surgeon, I have years of specialist training and meet my clients one on one, to ensure that every experience is personalised – both before and after surgery. After all, every patient is unique and deserves unique treatment. This isn’t often a guarantee when you seek surgery overseas like in Thailand.
For example, will you meet your surgeon in Thailand well in advance to have a proper discussion and consultation? Will he or she develop a course of treatment catered specifically to you? Are you comfortable that your surgeon will understand exactly what you want to achieve? These are all questions to keep in mind.
Enhancing your breasts is a big decision and not one to be taken lightly. As with any Cosmetic Surgery, there are many different factors to consider before undergoing the procedure. My goal is to always ensure that Breast Augmentation leaves my patients feeling great and looking natural, with an implant size and shape that’s tailored to suit their body shape.
Here are 4 things to consider before Breast Augmentation Surgery:
1. Size Matters
Most people tend to think ‘bigger is better’ however every patient is unique and what may suit one body type, won’t necessarily suit another. You may want a size D cup like X celebrity but if your body frame is very petite, large implants can look unnatural, throw the balance away and make your body figure look disproportionate. My philosophy for Breast Surgery is always, to enhance your existing characteristics for noticeable but natural-looking outcomes.
2. Implant Shapes Vary
Breast implants differ in shape, from round to teardrop. Sometimes I get patients coming to me requesting a particular type of implant but it may not be the most appropriate option for their body type or it may not give them the shape they were hoping to achieve. As with many things, there are going to be pros and cons for different choices. How do you know what’s right for you? This is where my expertise as Specialist Plastic Surgeon comes in. I determine what’s best for my patients by viewing the desired effect from the front view as well as the profile view. I then assess your body type, your goals and propose the ideal breast implant shape for you.
Cosmetic Injections like Wrinkle Relaxers and Dermal Fillers are increasingly popular for targeting wrinkles, fine lines and for giving your face volume and fullness, so you can lose the drawn and exhausted look. As the procedure is non-invasive, it’s an efficient and effective way to refresh your look instantly. You can even do it during your lunch break!
However as with any cosmetic procedure, it’s best to do your research beforehand to ensure safe and satisfactory outcomes.
Here are three things to keep in mind before you try Cosmetic Injections:
1. NOT ALL INJECTABLES ARE THE SAME
Just like anything else you may buy, not all products are of the same quality and this also applies to injectables. Dermal Fillers and Wrinkle Relaxers come with different compositions, scientific research and company reliability – all factors that can impact on your treatment outcomes. If you are looking into Cosmetic Injections, don’t be shy about questioning where the products have come from and the scientific studies behind them. This is your face at stake after all. At Eden Institute, we are committed to only purchasing and administering high quality products backed by reputable companies with guaranteed experience, reliability and results. We choose what we believe are the ‘Rolls Royce’ products.
No matter how hard you exercise or try to eat healthy, sometimes you can still be troubled by stubborn fat and body bulges that’s resistant to your efforts.
The good news is there’s now a procedure available that can help effectively eliminate stubborn fat with no surgery or downtime. It’s called CoolSculpting – a non-invasive procedure that ‘freezes’ your fat cells to reveal a slimmer you. Developed by Harvard Scientists, this contouring treatment is FDA cleared for fat reduction with proven results in clinical studies.

The nose is often one of the first things you see when you look at someone’s face. As the central defining feature, your nose plays a huge role in determining symmetry and proportion with the rest of your facial features. A disproportionate nose can take away certain balances and harmonies to the face and can also affect the way your profile looks.
Rhinoplasty (Nose Job Surgery) is a great option to consider if you want to change the way your nose looks. Most patients find that even a small change can make a big difference and boost your self-confidence.
RHINOPLASTY PATIENT CASE STUDY
Different patients come to me presenting with different concerns about their nose. One of the most common problems that worries my patients is a bump at the top part of their nasal bridge, which can then produce the appearance of a prominent “hooked” nose that droops downwards. This patient below (19 Years Old) for example came to see me for this exact concern and wanted to remove the protruding bump on his nose.
