Non Surgical Rhinoplasty

Non Surgical Rhinoplasty

Non-surgical rhinoplasty is a cosmetic procedure in which injectable fillers, most commonly hyaluronic acid ones like restylane and juvederm are used to alter and shape a person's nose without invasive surgery. The procedure fills in depressed areas on the nose, lifting the angle of the tip or smoothing the appearance of bumps and humps on the nose. Non surgical rhinoplasty is an augmentation procedure, so it cannot reduce the size of someone's nose. The procedure is not intended to replace a surgical rhinoplasty. However, the non-surgical rhinoplasty can correct minor deformities such as saddle nose, prominent humps and issues with proportions, and can be useful as an adjunct to a surgical procedure. Know more about non surgical rhinoplasty from your facial plastic surgeon.

Post Surgical Care For Septoplasty!

Post Surgical Care For Septoplasty!

The nasal septum divides the nose into two nostrils or airways. When this septum is defective in structure or position, it can cause several physical difficulties like breathing problems, sleep apnea, bleeding, sinusitis, etc. The surgery to correct the nasal septum is known as septoplasty. The surgery is very common and has a high rate of success.
 
Reason: When the bone and cartilage separating the two chambers is crooked and deformed, it prevents the air from flowing properly through either one of the nostrils. People suffering from this condition often breathe through their mouth and this leads to respiratory tract infections. So, the septum is fixed with the help of septoplasty.
 
Procedure

  1. First, your medical history is taken. A thorough physical examination is conducted and the nose is photographed from the inside and the outside. You may also be asked to avoid medication like ibuprofen, naproxen and aspirin for a few days since these can increase the bleeding after surgery.
  2. Septoplasty is performed under general or localized anesthesia and takes about 90 minutes. Incisions are made on the inside of the nose and the mucus membrane is lifted.
  3. Then, the pieces of cartilage that are affecting normal functioning are repositioned or removed.
  4. If the nasal bone is causing the septum to be wrongly aligned, then cuts are made on the bone and it is positioned correctly.
  5. Sometimes, cartilage grafts (called spreader grafts) are put in between the upper nose cartilage and the septum to widen the narrow nostril.
  6. After this, the mucus membrane is put back in place and stitched.

 
Post- surgical care: A nasal support is put inside the nose to help it heal and keep it straight. The support is removed after two days but there may be swelling and occasional nasal discharge for a few days. The tissues and cartilage become stable within 4 to 6 months. You are asked not to blow your nose or cough and sneeze too much as these might displace the nasal support. The head is to be kept at a higher level than the rest of the body while sleeping and physically demanding exercises are to be avoided in order to prevent nosebleeds.
 
Risks: Septoplasty is not performed if the patient had high level of blood sugar or high blood pressure. It is also delayed in case of any kind of infection in the nose, mouth or in the respiratory tract.

SCARLESS SURGICAL FACELIFT

Dr. Anshuman Manaswi 90% (278 ratings)

Cosmetic/Plastic Surgeon, Mumbai
SCARLESS SURGICAL FACELIFT
Traditional face lift surgery involves tightening of the skin and underlying tissues (fascia). This surgery is a very useful surgery for anti aging and the results are long lasting. One of the concerns of this surgery is that there is a scar in front of the ear which can be noticed at times.
Scarless facelift where in the scar cannot be seen and is hidden in the hairs. The results are like conventional facelift but without any visible scar. The results last for very long because with especially designed instruments, the fascia is also tightened.
The chances of any complication like nerve damage etc, are also virtually non existent with this technique

Piles - Know Its Causes And Surgical Treatment!!

Piles - Know Its Causes And Surgical Treatment!!

Piles are inflamed masses, clumps, or cushions of tissue in the anal canal. Also called haemorrhoids, piles can be a very unpleasant condition to live with.

However, the fact is that we all have some amount of inflammation in our anal canal tissues. But it’s only when the haemorrhoids become too inflamed that symptoms occur and this is when you are diagnosed as having piles.

The size of piles is variable and they can be found inside or outside the anus.

Internal haemorrhoids typically occur from 2 to 4cm above the opening of the anus. They are the more common ones and are divided into four grades.

  1. Grade 1 – Less inflammation occurs and it’s usually inside the lining of the anus. These piles are invisible.
  2. Grade 2 – These are larger haemorrhoids but are inside the anus. When passing stools they can get pushed out, but return back into the anal canal unaided.
  3. Grade 3 – These are called 'prolapsed haemorrhoids' and appear outside the anus. They can be pushed back into the anal canal with a finger.
  4. Grade 4 - These haemorrhoids cannot be pushed back and need treatment in the form of surgery as they are large and hang outside the anus all the time.

External piles occur on the outside edge of the anus and are called perianal hematoma.

Symptoms and Diagnosis

  1. You may feel a hard lump around the anus. And this consists of coagulated blood which is painful
  2. A feeling of fullness even after going to the toilet
  3. Bright red blood discharged after a bowel movement
  4. Itchiness around the anus along with redness and soreness
  5. Mucus discharge while defecating
  6. Pain while defecating

Causes

Piles occur due to chronic constipation and diarrhoea, lifting heavy weights, pregnancy or straining during defecation.

Treatment
Piles are often not serious and disappear without any treatment and usually with the help of lifestyle changes like drinking more water, cutting down on caffeine, eating more fibre etc. Just 10% of patients consulting a doctor for piles require surgical treatment. And surgery may be necessary for grades 3 or 4 haemorrhoids only.

Surgical Procedures-

BEIM technology - no cut, no suture, no wound, same day discharge!

  1. Hemorrhoidectomy – This involves removing the excess tissue that is causing the bleeding. This is an effective procedure for treating grades 3 and 4 haemorrhoids but it can cause complications like difficulty passing stools, as well as urinary tract infections.
  2. Haemorrhoid stapling – The blood flow is stopped from reaching haemorrhoid. It is less painful than a hemorrhoidectomy, but it comes with risks like haemorrhoid recurrence and something called a rectal prolapse in which a part of the rectum pushes out of the anus.

It is advised to get yourself treated as leaving piles untreated can increase the risk for gangrene and anemia due to long –term blood loss. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a General Surgeon.

Is It Crucial To Treat Hernia, Surgically?

Is It Crucial To Treat Hernia, Surgically?

A hernia occurs when an organ or fatty tissue pushes through a weak opening in the muscle that holds it in place. Hernias are common in the abdomen, but can also develop in the upper thigh, belly button and the genitals. The common types of hernia are the ones that occur in the groin viz (inguinal, femoral, obturator) around the belly button (umbilical), incisional (after a previous surgery) and hiatal (causes acid reflux) and are caused by muscle weakness. This weakness or increase in pressure in the abdomen can be triggered by lifting heavy objects without stabilizing abdominal muscles, diarrhea or constipation and chronic coughing (smokers and asthmatics) or straining to pass urine.

How can you treat hernia?

As hernia is a mechanical defect in the abdominal wall, the only definitive treatment is surgical repair of the defect. The type of surgery required depends on the size of the hernia and the severity of its symptoms. The defect may be repaired with stitches but the best option with least recurrence is to use  a mesh. The Hernias that are small and don't cause discomfort can be observed and managed conservatively with regular follow up with the surgeon. All hernias have the risk of intestines getting trapped and strangulation.

Lifestyle changes

Avoiding heavy meals, not bending over immediately after a meal and managing your body weight can reduce  the incidence of hernias. Also, you should avoid foods causing heartburn and quit smoking. If these dietary changes do not relieve your discomfort, you may need surgery to treat hernia.

 
Medication

Prescription medication given by your doctor that reduces stomach acid can relieve your soreness and improve the symptoms.

So when do you need surgery?

If your hernia is gradually growing in size, looks unsightly and is causing pain,  you should seek help and the doctor may advice you to effectively treat it through surgery. But with a hernia, there is always a risk of bowel obstruction and strangulation which may need an emergency operation.

A hernia can be repaired using two different surgical methods - open surgery or laparoscopic surgery.

In case of an open surgery, an incision is made in the skin near the bulging area. It requires a longer recovery process.
Laparoscopic surgery uses a camera and miniaturized surgical equipment to repair the hernia by making two to four small incisions in the abdomen. This method is less damaging to the surrounding tissue and has a much shorter recovery time.

Almost all of the hernias can be treated Laparoscopically, but as many surgeons are not well trained in Lapsroscopic hernia repair they do not recommend the procedure. So it's imperative you seek out a good minimally invasive surgical specialist.

Is there an alternative to surgery?

There is no other treatment apart from surgery for a hernia (imagine you have a hole in a cloth, the only way to repair it is with a thread (darning) or a patch).

Exercising regularly, losing weight or taking medications will not eliminate a hernia. Some patients feel that wearing a hernia belt will help ease the discomfort, but it will not help your hernia go away. It will only provide temporary relief. Only surgery provides a permanent and effective solution.

Benefits of Thread Face Lift

With all the modern day angst about looking our best at every point of time, we are growingly laying greater emphasis on skin care. More and more surgical as well as cosmetic age defying skin treatments are emerging which endows your skin with a new leash of life. As they say 50 is the new 20. With the barrage of products and therapies available these days, we no longer need to be worried about the blatant signs of ageing appearing on our skins or in our lives for that matter. It's easy to look as fresh and rejuvenated as your younger self with the help of these skin repair techniques. While some of them may entail a proper surgical procedure, others can resolve skin issues in a more natural manner. In that regard, Thread Lift has assumed widespread popularity in the context of face correction.


Thread Lift is essentially the use of threads or sutures for the purpose of voluminizing, lifting and contouring of skin. It also is effective in stimulating collagen production. 


It involves placing the sutures, made from permanent and absorbable materials, under the skin which then acts as suspension cables holds the skin in place and fortifies it against the effects of aging and gravity.


The benefits of a thread face lift are many. While it does not involve a full surgery, the effects of a thread face lift are fairly conspicuous and unmistakable. It retains the natural look and texture of the skin while imparting the desired restoration. 


Thread lifts are extremely effective for recreating the youthful charm despite the damaging impacts of age. Some of the areas where thread lifts work well are brows, jowls, cheek and the neck area. This is very impactful in obtaining the desired contouring of the skin. It also adds volume to the wrinkled and the sagging regions of your face. You may also use the thread lift technique for the other gravity affected body parts like breasts, bottoms and upper arms.


Thread lifts are risk free methods to regain the radiant glow of the youth, without the stress of a surgery. They are also quite tenable, given that a face lift can easily last for a span of 5 years. Thus, for all those planning to bid adieu to the facial asymmetry that arises due to gravity and age, Thread Face Lifts are the go to therapies for them. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dermatologist.

Eyelid Lift - How Different It Is From Blepharoplasty?

Eyelid Lift - How Different It Is From Blepharoplasty?

Eyelid Lift, Blepharoplasty and Ptosis surgery are terms related to modes of eye surgeries. However, they are not the same and have got some basic differences. As we become old, our awareness towards the puffiness around the eyes increases. We also sense the extra skin over the eyelid and the droopiness. The above-mentioned surgeries are meant for correcting these disorders. Each surgery is meant for the treatment of a different disorder or condition.

We must know about these three procedures and the major distinctions between an eyelid lift, blepharoplasty and ptosis surgery.

  • Eyelid lift: This is a generic term or word, and it may refer to blepharoplasty, as well as ptosis surgery. Eyelid lift is not a technical name of any mode of surgery. It refers to the lifting of eyelids in general, for which several surgeries are conducted. It refers to any form of surgery where the tissues are lifted, repositioned or trimmed for lifting of the eyelids.
  • Blepharoplasty: This is an actual surgical procedure carried out on the eyelids. In this surgery, excess skin is removed or the fat present is repositioned in order to remove the puffiness o the eyelids. In case of the upper eyelid, this surgery disposes off extra skin, which may hang over the eyelashes. Unwanted fullness is also reduced. The same thing is carried out in case of the lower eyelid. In some cases, the skin of the lower eye is not removed. Instead, it is moved to a different area such as the cheek.
  • Ptosis surgery: This mode of surgery is carried out for lifting the upper eyelids. This is done by manipulation of the muscle tendon on the eyelids which have stretched out. The weakening of the tendons may happen due to ageing, LASIK or cataract surgery, or because of using contact lenses. In a ptosis surgery, excess fat and skin from the eyelids are removed as well.

It's vital for anyone to know about eyelid surgeries and the basic difference between the terms eyelid Lift, blepharoplasty and ptosis surgery. While the eyelid lift is a general term, Blepharoplasty and Ptosis surgery fall under the modes of eyelid lift surgery. Choosing the best mode for your eyelids depends on the condition and symptoms you experience, and they may vary among people. Such surgeries are performed by oculo-facial surgeons.
