双眼皮手术

双眼皮手术,又名重睑术,亦称双眼皮成形术,可以创造或改善双眼皮或去除过度下垂的皮肤。

如果您想变成双眼皮并且已经变得厌倦使用眼睑胶带和胶水来强行制造那多一道的折痕,那么双眼皮手术可能适合您。

什么是双眼皮手术?

在新加坡,一种更持久地创造双眼皮的方法通常囊括了由整形外科医生实施的切口方法、外科手术和整形手术技巧。影响眼睑皮肤的切口和不需要切口的方法只能由获得委员会认证的整形外科医生执行。

双眼皮手术通过手术切除组织和肌肉以产生折痕。有时,它与内眦整形术一起进行。内眦整形手术用于增加眼睛的宽度以创造更大、更加吸引人的眼睛。

在此处阅读有关内眦整形术的更多信息。

不需要切口的眼睑成形术
这是一种无疤痕方法,通过缝合眼睑以产生折痕,不需要开切口。缝合线穿过组织以收紧皮肤直到形成折痕。

需要切口的眼睑成形术

在此过程中,整形外科医生会去除多余的脂肪、组织和肌肉以形成折痕。该技术还可用于:

● 去除影响您视力的多余皮肤,治疗下垂的眼睑
● 改变您眼睛的形状
在双眼皮手术期间我可以期待什么?

该手术由何耀明医生执行。何医生在韩国接受培训,在精细复杂的眼部年轻化和手术方面拥有丰富的经验。在手术之前,何耀明医生将和您进行一次详细的咨询以评估您的面部解剖结构并与您讨论您想要的变化。
该手术大约需要 20 分钟。这是一种无需住院的安全而直接的手术,这意味着您无需过夜。
患者会接受麻醉并且在整个手术中感到舒适。

在恢复期间我可以期待什么?
最初,您可能会经历肿胀和感到不适,这会在2周内消退。您需要充分休息,避免揉眼睛和过度的日晒。您的整形外科医生可能会给您开抗生素以防止感染。

手术后5天可以拆线。

双眼皮手术的效果能持续多久?

对于非切开方法,双眼皮折痕可以持续10年以上。切口手术持久的效果会更长。

我们欢迎并鼓励患者提出他们的任何疑虑或问题,以便他们可以对是否进行内眦整形术做出一个有信心的决定。

“招风耳”矫正术或大耳朵矫正术

“招风耳”矫正术又称廓成形术, 可以改变耳朵的形状和位置,从而实现更对称,更美观的外观。招风耳有时也被称蝙蝠耳。 患者常常因有过大的耳朵而感到尴尬。婴儿时期,耳朵还未成型前,不断地按摩耳朵或许可改变耳朵的形状。但在青少年和成年人中,耳软骨已钙化或硬化意味着简单的按摩或拉伸是不起作用的。

根据每个患者突出耳朵的特征,矫正可能需要去除或削掉部分耳软骨,磨掉部分肌肤,以及使用缝合线来纠正角度和突起。医生会仔细评估每个人的耳朵特征后才为患者提供选择方案及所使用的技术。

廓成形术

在Allure整形中心,我们使用缝合、软骨削磨及切除、隐藏切口一系列混合技术以矫正不同程度的突出耳朵。通常在局部麻醉及静脉麻醉下进行; 患者也可要求全身麻醉。根据突出耳朵的严重度及需修正的程度,手术通常在1至2小时内完成。手术后前几天,患者需要在耳朵上佩戴压迫性绷带。然后在第一次复诊时由头带代替。一般情况下,患者可以在手术后一周恢复工作。

其他罕见的耳畸形包括Stahl耳朵,隐耳症(部分顶耳隐藏在头皮肌肤下)和垂下的耳朵(耳朵的顶部被折叠)。所有这些罕见症状需要与医生详细咨询进行仔细评估后方能进行,以达到良好的校正。

Hair Transplant

As we age, some people suffer from hair loss or a receding hairline. One of the ways to treat this is to get a hair transplant. The hair on our head generally grows in follicular units. Per unit usually consists of anywhere between one to four individual hair follicles.

A hair transplant is a procedure where a doctor takes follicular units from another part of your body (commonly, from other parts of the scalp that hasn’t suffered from hair loss) and transplants it to the parts of the head where you are experiencing baldness.

How Hair Transplants Work

The doctor will first clean your scalp and will give you an injection to numb the back of your head where the hair follicles will be taken from. There are two distinctly different procedures that your doctor can choose from:

The back of your scalp will have to be shaved. The doctor will then individually remove hair follicles from that area. This will cause little dots of blood to emerge from those roots. The surrounding hair generally covers this. The doctor then numbs the area where the hair will go and uses either a scalpel or a needle to make tiny holes where these hair grafts are neatly placed.

Fue steps

The doctor removes a significant strip of skin from your head (usually around 5-10 inches). He then sews the affected area on the scalp shut. He then takes the strip of skin and divides It into a large number (500 to 2,000) tiny grafts. Then, similar to FUE, he numbs the area where the hair will go and makes tiny incisions with a scalpel and a needle and places the hair grafts neatly into them.

Dr Samuel Ho’s Approach

Dr Samuel Ho only uses the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) technique for hair transplantation as it provides a very aesthetically pleasing donor site as compared to strip grafting. It minimises the transaction rate of the hair shafts cutting through the roots which result in the hair not surviving. FUE allows for very fine control as only micrografts of 1-3 shafts are transplanted each time – allowing for more precise and natural placement of the hair grafts.

The downside of this technique is that it is far more laborious and time-consuming. Thus, Dr Ho tends to perform this with a big team of hair nurses and technicians to speed up the entire process. Patients will be under mild sedation in our day surgery so that the procedure, which can take several hours, is as comfortable for the patient as possible.

Am I A Suitable Candidate for Hair Transplant?

Hair loss stages

In order to be a suitable candidate for hair transplant, the donor area for the transplant must have a high count of strong, thick hair. Hair transplant is ideal for solving early-stage hair loss all the way up to Stage IV. For patients in Stage V and VI, it is best for Dr Samuel Ho to personally assess your situation before proceeding.

All stages of hair loss can be treated to various extents and early treatment is highly recommended.

Hair Transplant Recovery Process

The time taken for the procedure may vary from individual to individual. The procedure can take anywhere between four to eight hours.

After the surgery, your scalp might feel tender or painful to the touch. Your doctor will prescribe you a series of pain medications that you’ll need to take for several days. The affected areas of your scalp will also have to be bandaged for a few days. For some cases, the doctor might prescribe antibiotics or anti-inflammatories to prevent any serious swelling or infection from occurring.

Most people are able to return to work two to five days after the operation.

Is Hair Transplant Permanent?

Hair transplants have a permanently positive effect on your hair growth.

Within two to three weeks, the transplanted hair may fall out. However, this will trigger new growth that you should see within weeks of the surgery. Most patients report seeing a 60% increase in new hair growth after 6 to 9 months.

Hair Loss Restoration in Singapore

See a Doctor Experienced in Hair Loss for a Medically Proven Treatment

There are numerous advertisements touting hair restoration in the form of tonics, shampoos and creams sold over-the-counter. However, many of these do not produce results as it does not address the fundamental issue that hair loss is a medical condition originating from the cellular level of the follicle roots.

A detailed consultation with a doctor is an important first step in understanding the underlying cause of your condition. This will allow us to make the right treatment suggestion, which may be as simple as good hair care and nutrition to minimally invasive treatments such as medical injections or hair transplantation.

3 Steps to Grow Back Thick, Natural Looking Hair

3 Steps to Grow Back Thick, Natural Looking Hair

Step 1 – Block DHT

DHT is the most significant cause of hair loss. To regrow hair, it is vital to remove DHT from the scalp.

Step 1 – Block DHT

To block DHT, we recommend a combination of medication with anti-hair loss shampoo and serum. This has proven to offer  up to 56% reduction in DHT production by inhibiting the 5-alpha-reductase enzyme.

Step 2 – Nourish the Scalp

We recommend a combination of 3 treatments to nourish the scalp with the nutrients it needs. Firstly, we recommend the use of a Korean protocol of Scalp Stimulation using medical-grade ampoules. Next, we recommend Low Level Laser Therapy or LLLT and finally, Hair Supplementation using a product such as Viviscal Professional.

Nourish the Scalp
Viviscal

Step 3 – Fortify with FUE

Hair transplant using Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is viewed as the best and most effective method in many countries, including Singapore. Many patients utilise FUE hair replacement services to regain their hair and are very satisfied with the natural looking results.

Improved Outcomes of Hair Transplant

If you have not responded to treatments, a hair specialist can perform a Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). The FUE technique has improved in recent years, making Hair transplantation in Singapore a popular and effective option. The process is safe and minimally invasive. It is performed under sedation and local anaesthesia so that the patient is relaxed and comfortable.

Balding often happens at select areas of the crown, for example in males the top of the head is where balding usually occurs. 2 unique features happen in male pattern balding. 1) There is a ring of resilient hair surrounding the bald spot that is resistant to DHT 2) These hair are often healthy bunches growing with 2, 3 or even 4 strands per follicle.

Hair loss

This means that hair from healthy areas are IDEAL donors. When hair from these healthy areas are transplanted to the bald areas, they will retain the DHT resistant characteristics and continue to grow thickly and naturally.

Hence, after a hair transplant, you will have a full head of hair that is resilient against DHT. This process is completed in a day and you can return home right away.

What Is Fue?

Follicular Unit Extraction, or FUE, is the transfer of hair follicles from a healthy donor area to bald or thinning areas on the head. The donor follicle will then grow and survive at the transplanted area. This is a highly effective and permanent solution.

What Is Fue?

How Is the Treatment Performed?

A device known as a punch, is used to skillfully extract follicular units from the donor area. This is done under a high-powered microscope that allows the surgeon to work with great precision. There are usually no visible scars and patients can return to normal activities the following day.

Prices start from $6000/-.

Post Transplant Care

Post-transplant care is highly recommended to maintain your hair transplant and improve follicle survival. As part of our post-care review, we will advice you on a post-transplant regime to help you care best for your new follicle transplants.

乳房缩小术

巨大的乳房经常会给患者造成生理和心理上很大的困扰。生理上问题可能涉及:颈部和上背部疼痛;由于胸带引起的肩部疼痛;以及皮肤问题,例如由于褶皱中的摩擦和摩擦引起的感染或湿疹。患者也可能遭遇无法购买到合适的胸罩或衣服问题,而引起社交尴尬。

Breast Reduction Procedure - Allure Plastic Surgery

Breast reduction surgery aims to achieve symmetrical, smaller and more aesthetically appealing breasts, with correction of any ptosis if required. This is performed at Allure using a vertical short-scar, superior-medial pedicle technique popularized by Dr. Elizabeth Hall-Findlay. The removal of excessive breast tissue and reshaping of remaining breast tissue, excision of excessive drooping skin, changing the nipple-areolar complex position, and liposuction is performed to achieve symmetrical attractive and smaller breasts with minimal scarring.

“根据乳房减少的体积,乳房缩小术可被列为医疗手术。因此有资格申请使用保健储蓄保险(Medisave)或其他保险。”

恢复期长吗?

乳房缩小术是在门诊的基础上进行的,这意味着不需要过夜。患者在脉镇静下进行,确保整个手术过程舒服无痛。术后会出现轻微的肿胀和瘀青并且在几天内消退。通常不会留明显疤痕。患者2至3天后就能恢复正常工作。

谁来做这个手术?

此手术由何耀明医生来执行。何医生曾在韩国受训,在乳房缩小术及塑造乳房方面拥有丰富的经验。在实施手术前,何医生会和患者沟通详并进行身体结构与轮廓分析,了解到每个患者的个人特点和需求后,再提出专业的建议。患者在充分了解了治疗过程并消除了他们到疑问后,就会有信心做出决定进行乳房下缩小术。

乳房重建术

乳癌患者接受乳房切除术对心理的撞击毋庸置疑地远超过生理影响。目前乳房重建手术扮演着举足轻重的角色,不仅是重建乳房而且更多是恢复患者所丧失的信心。

乳房重建术能与乳房切除术同时进行,又称“立即重建”,或者在稍后阶段则被称为“延迟性重建”。该手术被分为两大类-自体乳房重建或植入假体乳房重建。

自体乳房重建:

该手术使用患者自己的组织(皮肤,脂肪和部分肌肉)来重建乳房。供区可能是肚子、背部、臀部或大腿。 Allure整形中心倾向于使用肚皮瓣,又称横向腹直肌皮瓣(TRAM瓣)。这种方法非常可靠,即可塑造感观上更自然的乳房,能重建不同尺寸的乳房与另只乳房匹配的。而其他手术方法则不具备此特点。

植入假体乳房重建

此手术使用类似于隆胸术的硅胶植入物进行重建。硅胶植入物重建术是否可行取决于患者胸部残留的皮肤或者术后是否进行放射治疗。术前,患者需要与乳房外科医生和整形外科医生详细讨论及规划。

为了确保乳晕和乳头和另只乳房的对称,乳头塑造术需要过段时间才能进行。

Breast Reconstruction Surgery

由于术后需要大量护理,所以患者需留院观察。

什么是乳房下垂矫正上提术?或称为乳房固定术

乳房下垂矫正术上提术是一种矫正乳房下垂的外科手术,此手术也能与放置植入物隆胸术一起进行。医生提升乳头 及乳晕至更高更美观的位置。并且将乳房提升到更合理的位置。此手术适合不再计划母乳喂养的女士们。

下垂分级

乳房下垂级别以下垂的严重性区分。通常乳头干瘪及处于过低位置。导致乳房下垂的原因有以下这几种:
-衰老
-怀孕或母乳喂养的后遗症
-假性乳房下垂症(乳房下垂但乳头状态保持无损)

Ptosis Grade

恢复期长吗?

乳房下垂矫正术是在allure整形中心进行,患者不需要过夜。患者在静脉麻醉下进行,确保整个手术过程舒服无痛。术后会出现轻微的肿胀和瘀青并且在几天内消退。通常不会留疤痕。患者2至3天后就能恢复正常工作。

Nose Fillers

Nose fillers are a popular and effective minimally invasive procedure used to reshape the nose to correct deformities and achieve better aesthetics. Nose fillers are also known as “liquid rhinoplasty” or the “liquid nose job”.

In general, the goal of nose fillers is to alter the shape of the nose, nostrils or the bridge. A smaller, crisper nose tip and a higher nose bridge are generally favourable results for nose fillers, with the strongest emphasis being on creating a higher nose bridge.

(for more control over tip definition and shaping, a surgical Rhinoplasty is recommended)

How Nose Fillers Work

Most commonly, doctors use hyaluronic acid fillers in order to alter the shape of the nose. Hyaluronic acid, otherwise known as glycosaminoglycan polysaccharide, is a naturally occurring substance that can be found in our bodies. Therefore, it has very low antigenicity (chance of causing bad immune reactions) and is very safe when injected into our body.

Before the actual treatment takes place, a numbing cream will be applied to the relevant parts of the nose. This generally takes around 10 to 15 minutes for the effects to fully kick in.

A doctor will then use a syringe and needle on specific areas of the nose in order to alter its shape and create a more appealing look. The actual procedure takes only a short time of around 15 to 20 minutes.

How Nose Fillers Work

Dr Samuel Ho’s Approach

Dr Samuel Ho regards nose fillers as a prelude to a surgical rhinoplasty so that one can try the look of the nose that one desires. Fillers to the nose tend to “degrade” in appearance over time; nose bridge fillers tend to look very good at the first instance, but repeated use often results in a “filler-nose” appearance, one that is overly wide and high, with an ill-defined appearance.

Dr Ho often performs rhinoplasties on patients who have had fillers done to the nose. If it was recently done, there’s a need to dissolve the fillers 1 week prior to the procedure to return the nose to its original state and minimise the bruising and swelling that occurs after the rhinoplasty. (the agent used to dissolve the filler results in a few days of significant swelling).

Fillers to the nose tip should be used with caution as it is a watershed region, particularly if the nose has been injected with filler multiple times previously or if there was surgery/trauma to the nose before.

Pain and Downtime

In general, the procedure is not painful. The doctor will apply topical numbing cream in order to make the experience tolerable.

For nose fillers, there isn’t any immediate downtime after the procedure and patients can expect to return to action with about an hour’s rest. Some patients report feeling some mild discomfort and sometimes post-operative bruising and swelling is expected. However, within 24 hours, most negative effects will have subsided.

How Long does Nose Fillers Last?

Unlike an actual rhinoplasty, the results of nose fillers are generally temporary and last so long as the hyaluronic acid remains in the tissue. Once the fillers dissipate, the nose returns to its normal shape. This usually takes between six to twelve months. The time it takes for fillers to return to normal may vary from individual to individual.

Hyaluronic acid, unfortunately, slowly dissolves into our skin tissue. Hence, your doctor might require you to come back to get touch-ups done every few months. This is to ensure that your nose continues to maintain its new shape.

Crooked Nose Treatment

There are many possible reasons someone might have a crooked nose. A crooked nose would refer to any nose that doesn’t follow a straight, narrow line on the middle of your face.

In general, crooked noses are a cosmetic concern. However, there are situations where a crooked nose can affect your breathing.

Causes of Crooked Noses

In general, there are 2 main causes of crooked noses.

  1. Bone, cartilage or tissue issues

    Our noses are made out of bone, cartilage and tissue. These work together in a complex system in order to form a functional nose. This might get affected by certain birth defects, physical injuries, nasal infections or other surgeries like rhinoplasties.
     
  2. Deviated septum

    Your septum is a wall within your nose that separates the right and left nasal chambers. Patients with a deviated septum have a septum that slants either to the right or left, causing a blockage.

    A deviated septum can be a tricky nasal condition to live with as they sometimes affect breathing, sleep and can cause nosebleeds.

Only a doctor is qualified to properly diagnose the reason for a patient’s crooked nose.

Treatment for Crooked Noses

Treatments for crooked noses generally fall into 2 categories, surgical and non-surgical.

Septoplasty

Dr Samuel Ho’s Approach

Firstly, the underlying cause for the crooked nose must be determined – is it the septum or nasal bones that are crooked? Occasionally, it may be the soft tissue (skin) that results in deviation, such as when scarring is present. In general, this crookedness can be dealt with in 2 different ways - one can correct the cause of the crookedness or one can camouflage it.

The difference between the two methods is the recovery involved. Camouflage techniques typically result in shorter downtime, but may not be feasible if there is a functional problem that has to be corrected, such as nasal obstruction. Correcting the underlying cause, such as nasal bone osteotomies (breaking the nasal bones) or septoplasties (to correct a crooked middle cartilage piece) typically have a longer recovery period and might have a slightly higher complication rate but are generally needed to correct a functional problem.

The more appropriate method is only chosen after a careful discussion between Dr Samuel Ho and the patient as every patient’s requirement and expectations are different.

Face Thread Lift

Face lift threads may vary in terms of thickness and density. Threads with small cones around them are inserted into the skin via a needle. This produces a visible “lift” to the skin which creates a youthful, vibrant look.

Face Thread Lift
Face Thread Lift

How Face Thread Lifts Work

The sutures made by the threads has the effect of pulling the skin back and therefore giving the face a tighter look. Also, these threads inspire a healing response from within the skin, causing the body to direct a large surge of collagen to the treated area. Collagen is extremely important in combating ageing and giving the skin a youthful look.

The Face Thread Lift Process

First, your doctor will inject you with a local anaesthetic in order to numb the relevant parts of your face. This takes around 10-15 minutes to fully work. Under local anaesthesia, a doctor will use a needle to insert the threads horizontally into different parts of the face, to create a lifting effect. Sometimes, a doctor might opt to use a blunt cannula to insert the threads.

The total number of threads needed varies according to a few factors. These factors include:

  1. The existing face structure of the patient
  2. How much enhancement is required
  3. The thread that is being used (e.g. HIKO threads)

This entire procedure takes anywhere between 15 to 30 minutes.

Face Thread Lift Process

Dr Samuel Ho’s Approach

Dr Samuel Ho personally prefers coned threads to barbed threads as he feels the core strength is less compromised and therefore the lifting effect is more sustained. Typically, 3-4 threads are required on each side to thread the lower face and a further 3 threads are required on each side to treat the neck. Dr Ho usually avoids using threads to thread the brows and eyelids as it may not provide for a very natural appearance.

Dr Ho also assesses the “weight” of the patient’s skin prior to the thread lift to ascertain if the lifting effect will be sustained. If it is too “heavy”, he will let the patient know as much, and advise them on other more suitable options.

In general, thread lifts provide an immediate period of lift and patients should be made aware of the degree of lift possible. Thread lift results can improve up to 3 months from the original procedure.

How Long Thread Lifts Last

Within 6 months to a year, the threads will naturally and safely dissolve within the skin. However, the effects of a thread lift last for 1-2 years, lasting even after all the threads have dissolved.

The downtime is minimal and many refer to this treatment as a “lunchtime lift” as patients can often get the procedure done during their lunch break and return to work straight after.  Side effects are rare and generally mild. These include:

  1. Mild bruising and swelling around the thread insertion areas
  2. Thread extrusion

颊脂体切除术/脸颊缩小术

膨胀的脸颊可能是由过多的颊脂体堆积而成。

医生切入口腔脂肪垫后,对脸颊外部施加压力,将颊脂肪垫推向口腔内部。这样可以抓住脂肪体。这样做不会把所有的颊肪去除,因为需要保留一些脂肪以获得平滑的脸颊。除去足够的口腔脂肪, 止血和缝合后,可以塑造出更完美动人的脸庞。

通过该手术去除的颊脂可随后放入其他用途或丢弃。例如:鼻成形术则可使用去除的脂肪垫来遮盖鼻部硅胶植入物或增加鼻尖。其他美容用途包括使用它来填充下眼睑的中空撕裂槽畸形。这些新技术已经由我们的整形外科医生发表在的整形外科杂志《Plastic&Reconstructive Surgery》。

颊脂肪切除是个简单的手术,可在30分钟至1小时内完成,恢复期也快。患者通常在第二天就能恢复上班。鼓励患者使用漱口水及注意口腔卫生,以将感染的风险降到最低。

酒窝再造术/酒窝成形术

酒窝让人看起来更年轻,友好和可爱,倍受女士和男士追捧。通常没有酒窝的患者想要塑造酒窝;或者单酒窝的患者想要追求对称的效果。

疗程过程

酒窝再造术使用口内切口的缝合技术进行。这是一种相对简单的微创手术,通常在局部麻醉或静脉麻醉下进行。

医生和患者确定了塑造酒窝的位置,会在脸颊上标记。然后在口腔内部进行小切口,将可吸收缝合线穿过面颊内部。这种缝合线会勾住皮肤的下表面(真皮)并往复环回到原始切口部位。当缝合线绑在颊部肌肉上时,会在外侧的皮肤上产生自然的凹陷。酒窝的深度由整形外科医师缝合线的松紧度而定,这是手术至关重要的步骤。

手术通常需要30至45分钟,并且不会在脸部外侧留下疤痕。术后当天,患者就能恢复上班,第二天就能回到正常饮食。鼓励患者使用漱口水及注意口腔卫生以将感染的风险降到最低。术后的几天,不建议患者有过多的口腔运动或任何剧烈的吹奏动作。

第一周,凹陷普遍都显得非常深,但因缝合线张力的松懈,随后几周内将逐渐变得更浅和自然。此手术使用可吸收的缝线,在随后的几个月中渐渐被疤痕组织替代,形成永久的酒窝。

下巴/下颚成形术

短下颌显得很不美观,尤其在男性。下巴成形术可以帮助改善下巴的线条,使之更突出,让脸型更匀称。

下巴成形术,又称颏成形术利用假体植入达到整形目的,不会导致患者面部的瘢痕。该手术在静脉麻醉下进行,大多数患者休息2-3天后就能恢复工作。术后会出现微肿胀或淤青,并且在手术多年后无需更换硅树脂假体。

另个方式是使用患者骨骼中的切口来将下巴移位。这种手术相对创伤比较大,其涉及使用钛板和螺钉将下巴骨骼稳定在新的位置。

非手术方式则注射玻尿酸(hyaluronic acid)或患者自体的脂肪。两项都是简单的无创疗程,可以在诊所进行并且恢复期也很短。

无论男士或是女士,过度突出的下巴(兜下巴)也可能导致外观不美观。尤其在女士们中,过度突出的下巴会让脸形呈过于阳刚。通过口腔内切口进行下巴缩小术,无外伤。根据患者的需要,下颌骨可以拆下并用钛金属板和螺钉固定。

该手术在静脉麻醉下进行,大多数患者休息2-3天后就能恢复工作。术后会出现微肿胀或瘀青,这将在1至2周内消退。

提眉术

眉毛下垂是蛮普遍的现象,通常因衰老而导致。是由于用于抬起眉毛的额肌衰弱引起。大多数患有眉毛下垂,或者上眼睑下垂,俗称眼皮下垂。患者通常通过抬高眉毛来弥补这一缺点,从而导致很深的抬头纹。眉毛下垂问题往往是患者在寻求医生在额头上施用肉毒杆菌时被诊断出来的。

眉毛,上眼睑,下眼睑,虹膜和盖颊连接处形成“眼窝框架”,这是Timothy J. Marten博士所提出的概念。因此,下垂的眉毛通常会影响眼窝框架的比例,使患者显示出悲伤、愤怒或疲倦的面部表情。他的观点表明,眉毛和眼皮对于我们的面部表情及上脸的整体审美观有着举足轻重的作用。

根据患者的意愿及严重度,有许多不同的矫正方式-手术及非手术技术可供参选。

非手术矫正使用倒钩缝线,或定计量注射肉毒杆菌。这两种方式较适合于轻度的眉毛下垂。

手术矫正分为以下几类:直接提拉眉术,间接提拉眉术,贯穿眼睑成形提拉术和内窥镜提拉眉术。在Allure整形中心, 何耀明医生会和患者沟通详并进行面部分析,了解到每个患者的个人特点和需求后,再提出专业的建议。帮助患者选择最佳的眉毛提升方案。

术后怎么护理?

术后需要扶擦抗生素药膏及避免往额头施压。眼部范围也会出现轻微的肿胀和瘀青,这将在一周内消退。

颈部提拉除皱术

什么是颈部提拉除皱术?

下颏切除术或俗称颈部提拉除皱术,是改善和增强颌骨和颈部外观的外科手术。颈部老化通常伴随着面部老化。颈部老化问题可能出现以下现象:

这些现象由以下几个因素组合引起:

颈部祛皱提拉术通常与脸部祛皱提拉术同时进行,为了让术后整个外表看上去比较和谐。因为脸部和颈部通常被视为一个整体。面部许多结构,如表面肌肉腱膜系统(SMAS),是从颈部开始延伸,所以应被视为一个整体。颈部的治疗将包括重新矫正颈阔肌,去除任何过量、突出的脂肪,减少皮下过厚的脂肪,以及重新拉伸和去除过量松散的颈部皮肤。

颈部祛皱拉提手术过程

有时颈部祛皱提拉术可以单独进行。何耀明医生会将颈部肌肉(颈阔肌)矫正收紧,以抽脂方式除去多余的脂肪,并且将皮肤拉伸收紧以产生美丽的下巴以及诱人的颈部线条。术后会出现一些肿胀和瘀青,这将在1-2周后消退。术后患者使用脸部提拉绷带将对手术的成功起到至关重要作用,并且必须在术后持续佩戴3-4周。患者可以在术后1周后进行轻度运动。

面部提拉手术

为什么您需要面部提拉手术?

随着年龄的增长,我们的面部原有的脂肪和骨骼逐渐流失。这会导致皮肤松弛、弹性下降, 皱纹突显,呈现疲劳的外观。年轻时的V形脸,将被一个沉重、下垂、渐渐老去的脸所取代。皮肤和下面的软组织与筋膜(SMAS)和支撑韧带开始失去弹性,并逐渐伸展。进行面部提拉手术能够消除这些岁月的痕迹。

这些老化的迹象通常在30岁左右始出现,随着年龄的增长,严重程度也会加深。根据老化的严重程度,目前有许多不同类型的祛皱美容方法可供选,以获得更平滑的皮肤和更年轻的视觉效果。以下几类可供参选:

通常,采用不同的脸部提拉术类取决于患者的个人需求,手术的意愿以及患者可容忍多长的康复期。手术越复杂时间也会更长,尤其是进行多次的面部提拉术。何耀明医生会和您详细讨论及分析、了解的每个患者的个人特点和需求后,以最适合患者的方法来达到更年轻更容光焕发的效果。

术后会出现一些肿胀和瘀青,这将在1-2周后消退。术后患者使用脸部拉缇绷带将对手术的成功起到至关重要作用,并且必须在术后持续佩戴3-4周。患者可以在术后1周后进行轻度运动。

腹部松懈/松弛矫正术

腹部松弛或凸臌状是由于腹部肌肉展开而造成的。这通常是老化或怀孕/孕育/分娩后的结果,导致腹直肌的衰弱以及在中线覆盖并分隔的筋膜。这并不是真实的腹疝,因为没有疝囊与腹内含物的现象。

当患者进食一顿大餐后或劳累,例如运动时,这种凸臌状会显得加重。虽然这对日常生活没太大的障碍,但心理上的影响可能相当大。由于不美观的性质,许多患者经常会减少游泳等活动,或不参与会涉及暴露肚子的项目。

腹部松懈/松弛矫正术需要将腹直肌肌肉和筋膜缝合在一起,以防止将来复发。腹部松弛矫正术与肚腩缩小术也可以一起进行。矫正手术通过小切口放置永久性的倒钩缝合线将腹肌绞连在一起。医生也会使用单独的缝合线使矫正处更加巩固。

手术后,患者或会感到腹部紧缩感,尤其饭后。数周后,随着身体适应新的矫正紧腹部肌肉组织,肿胀感会逐渐消失。手术后4至6周内,患者需要穿戴紧身弹力衣以增加修复并且防止缝合线断裂及凸臌状再次发生。

腹部松弛矫正手术是在全身麻醉或深度静脉麻醉下进行。患者能当天回家并且在3至4天后恢复日常活动,切记剧烈活动应在手术一个月后方能进行。

腹壁成形术/肚腩缩小手术

腹壁成形术,就是广为人知的“肚腩缩小手术”。

腹壁整形术主要是去除腹部多余的脂肪和过度拉伸的皮肤,收紧腹部肌肉,改善肚脐的外观。特别适于体重明显下降,比如实施减肥手术/胃部切除术后的人群。也普遍适用于已经生育过孩子的女士; 她们想要修复怀孕期间产生的妊娠纹或者是脐疝。通常,这些是无法通过单纯的控制饮食和体育锻炼达到目的。倘若您能在术后控制饮食及坚持锻炼,将大大提高腹壁整形术疗程的审美结果。

必须注意的是腹壁成形术并非减肥手术,更准确地说它是结合健康饮食习惯及运动帮助减肥成功人群或分娩后的妈妈们达到最理想的塑身及修复效果。

腹壁成形术分为以下几类:

微型/迷你腹壁成形术是最适合分娩后的妈妈们。切口比较短小,可以很好隐藏在剖腹产的疤痕中,也因此的而其名--迷你。简单的肚脐缺损和腹直肌的伸展也可以通过这个短切口/刀口矫正。

不适合微型腹部成形术的患者应进行全腹壁成形术,具有较长的瘢痕,以达到最佳的身型。腹壁成形术结合抽脂术,是一种非常有效的技术。在抽脂术所提取的脂肪也可用于臀部塑身,也称为巴西翘臀术。

体重大幅度下降的患者需要较大型的手术,如全腹成型术或腰带脂肪切除术,也被成为环形腹壁成形术。再次,这可以与抽脂结合来实现更优异的结果/理想的体型。

Female Genital Rejuvenation

Female genital rejuvenation typically involves the vaginal vault (vaginoplasty) and the external labia majora and minora (labiaplasty).

Women who choose to undergo these rejuvenative procedures typically are the postpartum mothers and those in the older age group. For each, there are both surgical and non-surgical options.

Labiaplasty Methods

I will discuss labiaplasty first as this is the more commonly requested for procedure, and I divide the procedures into 2 groups - those for the labia majora (outer) and those for the labia minora (inner). These tend to result from ageing and the accompanying hormonal changes and there is typically volume loss as well as tissue excess, producing a flat and deflated labia majora and a thin and floppy labia minora. There is also accompanying dark pigmentation in place of the more youthful pinkish appearance. Although this is usually a consequence of ageing, I do get a number of younger, pre-pregnancy ladies who also have these symptoms.

Non-Surgical Labiaplasty

The non-surgical method of rejuvenating the labia would be through the use of hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers that are injected to the labia to replenish the lost volume. However, this is a temporary solution and must be repeated annually or so. The other downsides include bruising and possible embolism resulting in tissue death, if inadvertently injected into a vessel, although this is rare.

This procedure takes about an hour and is performed under light sedation.

Surgical Labiaplasty

Surgical methods of rejuvenating the labia include:

This day surgery takes about an hour and is performed under light sedation.

Vaginal Rejuvenation Methods

Vaginal rejuvenation is usually performed for post-pregnancy mothers who may experience vaginal laxity as a result of multiple vaginal births, large birth weight babies, large episiotomy cuts with inadequate repair or other forms of natural vaginal birth trauma. They typically seek to reduce the size of their vaginal vault in order to achieve better sexual intercourse with their spouse, and this degree of reduction also syncs with the partner’s penile size.

Non-Surgical Vaginal Laxity Treatment

This can be achieved non-surgically over multiple sessions for a small degree of tightening, through the use of a vaginal tightening device that is inserted like a probe. The procedure involves a combination of lasers as well as radio frequency to achieve gradual mucosal tightening over time, much like a non-surgical facelift.

Vaginoplasty

Surgically, a vaginoplasty will involve the removal of a strip of mucosa, as well as a plication of the underlying muscle. This produces a more sustained tightening of a greater degree than can be achieved non-surgically. Vaginoplasty can be repeated on both sides of the back of the vaginal vault to achieve even more tightening, if required. I typically perform this procedure under moderate sedation, rather than general anaesthesia, as it is a relatively pain free procedure. It takes about 1 to 1.5 hours and is a day surgery procedure.

Patient Recovery Periods

Recovery is fairly straightforward for my patients and involve the use of sanitary pads for about a week due to the blood stained discharge that will occur. There is no stitch removal and they simply have to apply antibiotic ointment twice a day for 1 week till wound healing. They have to abstain from sexual intercourse for 2 weeks and other physical exercise for 1 week. For vaginoplasty, they will require lubrication for the initial few episodes of sexual intercourse that will usually be quite tight until the scar tissue relaxes fully.

肿块切除活检/ 癌性肌肤切除

身体会出现各种肿块,如痣,皮脂腺囊肿,脂肪瘤,病毒性疣等。通常属于良性肿块,以下特殊情况需要进行切除:

由于上述因素,应该将这些肿块去除,可以通过小切口和缝合技术来进行。倘若是很小的痣或疣,患者并不需要做手术,进行激光治疗即可。

长时间暴露在阳光下能导致常见的皮肤癌,如基底细胞癌和鳞状细胞癌。因此,它们最常见于脸部,颈部,手臂和手掌。通过手术就能把它们切除。切除肿瘤时,部分正常组织也一起切除,以便使癌症复发的机会最小化,又称宽切除。肿瘤即刻送去实验室进行病理学分析,以确保肿瘤完整被切除。较大的肿瘤中,由于切除大面积的组织导致更大面积的缺损,术后将需要重建(皮肤移植或局部皮瓣)。重建手术需要仔细规划才能确保成功。这应由合格的整形外科医生进行,以达到最佳的效果。

以上所有都疗程归为医疗类,因此有资格申请使用保健储蓄保险(Medisave)或其他保险。

疤痕修复手术

创伤,烧伤或以前的手术常常会在皮肤上留下疤痕,外观上可能是不美观的,如果它们在关节或移动区域上可导致功能的限制。

这些瘢痕可能是成熟的疤痕,肥大性瘢痕或增生性瘢痕。根据瘢痕的特征,瘢痕修复术可选择手术和非手术方法。

在成熟的疤痕中,通常没有任何症状,如瘙痒或疼痛,但可能会影响外观,有时由于其位置而导致功能限制。这些疤痕可能会扩大和色素沉着,从而不美观。手术修复通常为患者制造更美观效果。

肥大性瘢痕,色泽为深粉红色或紫色,可能会出现瘙痒或疼痛等症状。通常在手术或创伤后几周内出现,但与增生性瘢痕不同,它们并不会扩大。这类疤痕可以用类固醇注射, 瘢痕修复手术或一起治疗。肥大性瘢痕自修复时间比较长(长达一年),修复期间可能让患者感到不舒适。

增生性瘢痕可以在原创伤处多年后出现,并且经常延伸及扩大至原创伤处之外。增生性瘢痕难以治理,倘若仅通过手术治疗则经常复发。通常需要联合治疗,包括注射含有类固醇,肉毒杆菌毒素,修复手术和局部放疗。

色素沉着的疤痕或仅仅是疤痕厚度的问题,治疗方式包括激光治疗或削磨部分肌肤以获得良好的效果。

医生会和您/患者详细讨论及分析、理解的每个患者的个人特点和需求后,以最适合患者的技术或多组技术为您施术。烧伤或医疗手术而导致的疤痕修订被归类为医疗手术。
