Non-surgical Procedures Brighton Melbourne
It is not always necessary to undergo a surgical procedure to improve your facial appearance. Mr David Morgan offers procedures which can improve the appearance of the wrinkles on your face without the risks of scarring or having a general anaesthetic.
Fine wrinkles that result from excessive and repeated muscle action around our eyes, nose, mouth and foreheads can give a tired, angry, or aged look that can be out of keeping with how our patients feel. Non-surgical treatment performed to these areas can stop the muscle activity responsible for the wrinkles and can give you a more refreshed and rejuvenated appearance. This treatment requires no anaesthetic and can be performed in our practice in less than twenty minutes. The effects of the treatment will become apparent over the next 7-10 days and will usually last from 3-6 months. Treatments can be repeated as necessary and will often allow the skin to recover over time so that these fine wrinkles become less noticeable.
Deeper wrinkles can form in the face as a result of ageing and are particularly common between the eyes, around the mouth and chin, and at the junction of the cheek and upper lip. Non-surgical treatments can also be performed in these areas to reduce the depth and visibility of the lines and to improve the appearance of the surrounding skin. These treatments are usually performed under some form of local anaesthesia and may require early arrival for your appointment to allow the anaesthesia time to work. The effect of these treatments can be immediately apparent and can last for 9-12 months.
These treatments can also be used to plump up thin or ageing lips and to provide more definition to the lip edge. Lip enhancement is usually performed under local anaesthesia and will take approximately 30 minutes. The effects are immediately apparent and will last for up to 12 months
All surgical procedures carry risks.
Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
Cosmetic surgery is real surgery, and will most often require a general anaesthetic. All surgery will require a period of recovery before returning to normal activity. Although uncommon, complications can and do occur, and may affect the final result of your surgery. The potential risks will be discussed fully during your consultations, and you will have the opportunity to ask questions about the various risks in your particular circumstance. Risks may include poor quality scarring, excessive bruising and swelling, infection, bleeding, pain, asymmetry, nerve injury, anaesthetic complications, unsatisfactory cosmetic outcomes, the need for further surgery, and permanent disability or death.
As a Specialist Plastic Surgeon, Mr Morgan is appropriately trained and qualified to deal with complications of surgery, including the ability to admit you to hospital, if required.
