EAR SURGERY

When we think about Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery, for many people the first procedures that come into mind are Breast Augmentations, Tummy Tucks, Liposuction or Facelifts…etc.

However did you know that Ear Surgery is just as prominent?

At The Eden Institute, we get a wide range of patients coming in to perform Ear Surgery, from children, to teens and adults. Ear Surgery is also known as Otoplasty and is an aesthetic plastic surgery procedure that aims to correct prominent ears by setting them back closer to the head or altering the shape and angle of uneven ears. The aesthetic benefits will essentially vary depending upon the shape of your ears.

FACIAL ANATOMY

Dr Edinburg, after years of experience in Plastic Surgery, both Cosmetic and Reconstructive, chooses his education opportunities with care. His preference is to attend advanced workshops or travel to work together with other experienced Surgeons. Last year, Dr Edinburg attended the MAFAC, Melbourne Advanced Facial Anatomy Course – which was an intensive hands-on anatomy course on facial anatomy, involving both didactic and cadaver dissection in the lab.

Here are some of Dr Edinburg’s thoughts:

SKIN THROUGH THE AGES

A Complete Anti-Ageing Approach (Part 1)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The inevitable signs of facial skin ageing will take place throughout the course of time, even if we follow a diligent skincare routine from an early age. You may be in your early twenties; however with over-exposure to UV rays and the potency of pollution, it’s not uncommon for you to notice skin ageing signs on your face at an early age. Below is a broad overview of skin through the ages with general ageing trends that we see at The Eden Institute of Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery. These may of course vary from person to person, depending on their lifestyle, nutrition, genetics and skin care regime.

COMBINATION SURGERIES

Having trouble with excess fat deposits that just won’t budge despite consistent diet and exercise regimes can be extremely frustrating.

Both Liposuction and Tummy Tuck Surgery (Abdominoplasty) are great procedures to take into consideration when you want to reduce excess fat, loose muscles or sagging skin. In particular after pregnancy or after significant weight loss, many women opt for one of these procedures or a combination or both (depending on suitability and patient characteristics), to re-contour the abdominal region and flatten the anterior abdominal wall.

DR EDINBURG VISITS UNSW SURGICAL SOCIETY

Surgical specialities and their complexities is a niche topic in the medical industry and we were thrilled that Dr.Edinburg was invited to share his expertise with the UNSW Surgical Society.

In this talk, Dr.Edinburg provided medical students with an understanding of the basic principles of plastic surgery. What makes the practice unique is that plastic surgery goes beyond learning procedures. It involves learning the principles of healing and moulding across the body. In this holistic approach to learning, plastic surgeons can create highly innovative tailored solutions to operate from the top of the head to the tip of the toe.

In speaking about the differences between cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries, Dr.Edinburg shared that the two work hand-in-hand; applying the same principles, techniques and sensitivity to body healing and remodelling. Plastic surgeons always need to give a functional result which is always a cosmetic result too. They cannot really be separated. Want to learn more about the credentials of a plastic surgeon?

This patient (45 years old) above complained of looking tired and so came to Dr Edinburg for Upper Eyelid Rejuvenation Surgery (also known as Blepharoplasty).

To give some background about Eyelid Surgery, the procedure removes excess skin folds and sometimes also removes bulging fat pads on the upper and/or lower eyelids to give you a more youthful and rested appearance.

This patient was so delighted with the outcomes from the lift and the brightness that her face has received. Read her testimonial below!

FACIAL SYMMETRY (PART 2)

Exploring Symmetry (Part 2)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the last blog post, we looked at facial symmetry and attractiveness from historical references such as the Neoclassical Greek Canons. So how do we interpret these canons and apply the same principles in Plastic Surgery?

WHAT'S THE IDEAL BREAST?

Beauty of the face is often assessed through facial symmetry principles but what about breasts? What constitutes a beautiful breast?

Dr Edinburg believes that ultimately there is no “one ideal or perfect breast” as each woman is different and there are varying factors that can contribute to the aesthetics of one’s breast. However there are guidelines and principles that can help Plastic Surgeons achieve the most natural-looking and aesthetically pleasing Breast Augmentation for their patients.

Breast Augmentation is one of the most highly customisable cosmetic procedures available in offering patients outcomes that can be tailored to individual needs and concerns.
