Facelifts; Facelifts tackle the laxity of skin and muscle of the face and neck. The procedure is often combined with Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery). Mr Ghosh offers both the classical facelift and the newer short scar operation.
Mid Facelifts; A Mid Facelift aims to rejuvenate the area immediately below the eyelid, over the cheek bone, by repositioning the tissues over the cheekbone.
Botox (Botulinum toxin, muscle relaxant Injections); Muscle relaxant Injections are used widely for treatment of wrinkles and lines and is also used for treatment of increased sweating. These injections are very successful in treating the above conditions, however the injections will need to be repeated every three to four months.
Silhouette Thread Facelifts; The use of sutures to achieve lifting of facial tissues is a new concept in this country. This procedure is performed under local anaesthesia and involves no visible scarring. The procedure takes about 60 minutes to perform.
Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery); Laxity of the upper and lower eyelids can be corrected by performing an upper and lower lid blepharoplasty. This combined procedure is performed under a general anaesthetic and an overnight stay in hospital is required. Upper blepharoplasty is often carried out separately from lower lid and, if this is the case, will be carried out under a local anaesthetic.
Necklifts; Necklifts are often combined with facelift operations, although they are sometimes performed as a single procedure. The surgery commonly requires associated liposuction.
Nose Reshaping; Nose reshaping surgery involves reshaping various aspects of the nose. A detailed preoperative discussion is done to determine the various aspects of the nose which an individual is unhappy with. Mr Ghosh also performs septo-rhinoplasties (surgery to realign the nasal septum).
Prominent Ear Correction; Prominent ears can be corrected using a technique whereby the cartilage of the ear is set back. The procedure involves a general anaesthetic in children, while it can be done either with general or local aneasthetic in an adult. The procedure usually involves an overnight stay.
