In Cape Town our Plastic Surgeons offer procedures such as Laser Skin Resurfacing, Eyelid and Face-Lift procedures, Nasal Surgery, Ear Repair, mini Abdominoplasty and Breast Lifts. Non-Surgical procedures include Chemical Peeling, Laser Hair Removal, Botox injections, Microdermabrasion, Restylane and Perlane injections. An important philosophy of clinic is to be fully conversant and up-to-date with latest technology and procedures. The Blue Peel, for example, is latest in chemical peels which is performed in our clinics.
Most procedures today, except for abdominoplastics and breast reductions, are performed under local anaesthetic or conscious sedation. The Medical and Dental Professions have accepted concept that high-quality sedation can replace general anaesthesis for some surgical procedures. Many outpatient procedures previously done in hospital theatres under general anaesthesia can now be performed at private clinic where cost are considerably lower compared to public/ general hospitals.
There are many advantages when doing sedation in clinic: •Recovery is more rapid and patients can go home sooner •It is convenient •Patients are satisfied •Enormous saving as far as costs are concerned •Less side-effects, as patients do not get a general anaesthetic •Can return to their work sooner
Plastic Surgery has advanced not only in its techniques and results, but also in minimization of side effects, that for anyone, who has been born with a disfigurement or as a result of an accident, there are so many solutions. And for those wishing to merely improve an area or reduce number of fines lines and wrinkles, why not invite a friend and go on a cosmetic holiday to wonderful lands and coast of Cape Town.
