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.

EYELID REJUVENATION (PART 2)

Last week we looked into Eyelid Tucks, focusing on the surgical aspect of Eyelid Rejuvenation. This week we explore some non-invasive treatments that may also help to improve the appearance of ageing eyes.

NON-SURGICAL OPTIONS

If you wanted to rejuvenate your look with non-invasive approaches, Dermal Fillers are a good option to consider as they are used to plump up facial areas that have lost volume due to ageing.  They can also help effectively restore volume to sunken areas of the upper and lower eyelids. At the Eden Institute, we find often that patients who come to us for that dark sunken look below the lower lids, respond fantastically to dermal fillers to the area. It is the restoring of the lost volume that removes the shadowing.

Wrinkle relaxers (Botulinum products) can be used additionally to enhance eyelids for optimal results. Results are not permanent and must be repeated.

We are increasingly using Laser techniques to assist with lower eyelid sagging, where appropriate. A Microlaser Peel or ProFractional utilising our state-of-the-art medical grade laser offers us a number of options.

Clinically approved and medical-grade cosmetic products that contain biologically active ingredients can also help to reduce the appearance of eye bags and puffiness.

Overall it's vital to know that there is a wide range of variation in the surgical procedures depending on whether the patient presents with bags only, bags and excess skin, as well as the laxity of the lower eyelids.

Additionally, non-surgical approaches can help improve appearance and rejuvenate the area in skin tightening, add volume, reduce wrinkles, improve bags or puffiness under eyes, and improve skin tone and quality.

Upon consultation, Dr Edinburg will inform you of the various treatment options available that are safe and effective. He will then customise them to your own needs so that chosen procedures are most suitable to you personally.

PUCKER UP!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A woman’s lips have always been a symbol of sensuality and are a considered to be a defining feature of the face. Ideally, we all want full, luscious-looking and kissable lips!

However as we age, the appearance of our lips may change – they often lose fullness and volume and develop wrinkle lines. Many will not be unfamiliar with the term “smoker’s lines”, which are wrinkle lines above or below your lips. The occurrence of these lines can essentially give off a tired or aged look.

DR EDINBURG TALKS TO PLASTIC SURGERY REGISTERED NURSES

Dr Edinburg was recently invited to give a talk to the Plastic Surgery Registered Nurses at the annual Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery Association of NSW (CAPS) Seminar, which took place at Westmead Public Hospital.

Dr Edinburg was asked to speak to nurses and allied health professionals, all of whom work in the Cosmetic, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery arena – largely in operating theatres, and some who work in clinical roles alongside surgeons in their practices.

The segment was based on Cosmetic Surgery and Dr Edinburg chose to discuss surgical procedures that do not receive as much media prominence or media hype, yet yield extremely satisfying results for patients.

The three topics Dr Edinburg spoke about include:

DR EDINBURG AS AN ARTIST

THE ART OF PLASTIC SURGERY

Ralph Waldo Emerson once said “Love of beauty is taste. The creation of beauty is art”.

Plastic Surgery as a professional medical practice is essentially creative by nature and involves the merging of both art and science.

For example, did you know that the word “plastic” is derived from the Latin plasticus – molding and the Greek plastikos – to form?

FACIAL SYMMETRY (PART 1)

Exploring Symmetry (Part 1)

Our interest in facial attractiveness dates back to the beginning of recorded history.

Facial symmetry has always been acknowledged as an attribute of beauty, as well-balanced features and proportions will result in a harmonious appearance. Symmetry can usually be identified when there is a regular, balanced arrangement on opposite sides of a line or plane, or around a center or axis.
