Cosmetic surgery isn’t all about large procedures such as breast implants – there are many subtle procedures which can be carried out to make subtle changes to someone’s appearance. These minor procedures can help to boost confidence and make people feel better about themselves.
This is a guide to the best cosmetic surgery in Perth for subtle changes.
Receiving an injection of lip filler is a quick and painless procedure which helps to transform lips. Collagen helps to give lips a plumper and healthier appearance by making them thicker and improving lip colour.
The effects of lip-plumping collagen injections can last from 3 months up to a year. After that time, the patient may wish to receive another collagen injection in order to repeat the process.
A minority of people can suffer allergic reactions to collagen, so it is important to consult with a doctor before having such a procedure carried out. Dr Peter Randle cosmetic surgeon has a proven record of successful lip filler procedures.
Reducing Crow’s Feet
Crow’s feet are unsightly lines and wrinkles which appear at the corner of the eyes and the mouth when layers of fatty tissue are lost. There are several causes for crow’s feet: firstly, natural facial expressions such as smiling and frowning can cause lines to appear around the eyes and mouth. Secondly, habitual sleeping on the side of the face can cause wrinkles to form. Thirdly, exposure to sunlight can an effect called photo-aging which causes the skin to become drier and more susceptible to wrinkles. Fourthly, human skin contains molecules called free radicals which can affect DNA and cause lines to form.
Crow’s feet can be reduced by limiting the amount of sunlight exposure to the skin, and through a minor laser surgery procedure which flattens out wrinkles.
The skin can suffer from a range of issues which may affect a person’s confidence: problems can include acne, scarring and unsightly blotches. A skin peel can be used to remove these blemishes through the application of special chemicals which help to remove the outer layer of skin to reveal a fresh, healthy layer underneath.
A mole is a small lesion on the surface of the skin which can appear anywhere on the body. Some people can feel self-conscious about moles, especially those which appear on the face. Mole removal is quick and painless and is done by either shaving the mole from the face or cutting the mole if it goes deeper into the skin.
Birthmarks are skin lesions which appear when someone is born. These birthmarks are often dark colours, so can be extremely noticeable especially on the face. Birthmarks can be painlessly removed through a simple laser treatment which leaves the affected area of skin free of blemishes.
Cysts are small sacs filled with fluid that can form on the skin. Most are harmless and can be removed easily by draining the fluid with a scalpel and then cutting out the remaining dead skin.
Remember, before having any cosmetic surgery it is vital to consult with a qualified professional before any procedures are carried out.
