THE INTRALASE iFS LASER REVOLUTIONIZES LASIK
Ophthalmic plastic surgery or 'Oculoplasty' is the branch of ophthalmology that deals not only with the diseases of the eye, but also important structures around the eyes like eyelids, eyebrows, orbit and the tear system which are vital to the normal appearance and function of our eyes. Common conditions needing ophthalmic plastic surgery
Botox and Filler Injections
Minimally invasive procedures such as Botox Cosmetic and Filler injections, offer a perfect alternative to cosmetic surgery for busy individuals who can't afford even a few days of break in their schedules. BOTOX and fillers can achieve temporary yet subtle improvement in signs of aging, without interrupting your day-to-day routine and without incisions, significant swelling or bruising. These procedures can be done alone, or in combination to yield more dramatic results.
BOTOX is a purified protein which, when injected, injections work by weakening specifically targeted muscles, causing them to relax and preventing the appearance of dynamic wrinkles.
Usually 45 and over, however it may be performed as early as the 30's depending on the patient's needs.
Botox injections are performed as an outpatient procedure in the clinic. Specially designed ultra fine needles are used. Procedure is nearly painless when topical anaesthesia cream is applied (for an hour before injection).
Injection Time and Recovery:
Botox injection typically takes 10-15 minutes. Patients can return to work immediately, and there is no restriction or downtime. Its action typically lasts for 3-4 months.
Horizontal wrinkles over the forehead are caused by action of the forehead muscle that raises the eyebrow (frontalis). Relaxing this muscle with Botox gives a smooth and ironed out forehead
The frown lines between your eyebrows are caused by contraction of the muscles that pull the eyebrows down and near to each other. Injecting Botox into these muscles gives a relaxed appearance thus eliminating the frown ‘expression’.
Widen your eye
If your eye appears small (or almost closed) during a smile, a single injection of Botox into the lower eyelid can widen the eye.
Botox brow lift
A subtle rise in the eyebrow can be achieved by relaxing the muscles that pull it down.
Wrinkles at the side corner of the eye are called crow’s feet, and can be effectively treated with Botox.
Botox is often combined with other non-surgical procedures like Filler and skin lasers, or can be given as an adjunct to surgical procedures like Blepharoplasty, Endoscopic brow lift, Facelift, Midface (cheek) lift, Neck lift, or Fat transfer.
Filler injections (Restylane) are composed of Hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in our body. Small amounts of filler gel are injected into the skin or below it to contour and add fullness, or minimize static wrinkles and folds.
Usually 45 and over, however Filler injection may be performed as early as the 30's or earlier, depending on the patient's needs.
Filler injections are performed as an outpatient procedure in the clinic. Specially designed ultra fine needles are used. Procedure is performed under topical anaesthesia cream (for an hour before injection) or local anaesthesia injection.
Injection Time and Recovery:
Filler injections typically takes 20-30 minutes. Patients can usually return to work immediately. Minimal swelling and bruising may occur, which can last for 1-2 weeks. Touch-ups or enhancements if any, are performed at 2 weeks.
