The following galleries illustrate before and after images for a variety of procedures.
This is a hollowness of the upper lid. It can make you look older than you are. It can be associated with weakness of the upper eyelid muscle (ptosis) however; this is not always the case and can be treated with Hyaluronic acid filler to fill the hollow area. This should last a few years and can be repeated. Fat can also be used, however is not as predictable.
Asian double eyelid surgery is the world's most requested cosmetic procedure. Dr Lamb's techniques are designed to enhance Asian beauty by creating an eyelid fold while maintaining the integrity of the Asian appearance. Double eyelid surgery can vary from a simple suture to a more complex procedure depending on the individual requirements of the patient.
Sagging of the eyebrows is a common cause of baggy upper lids and is often wrongly treated with lid surgery (blepharoplasty). Some patients think they need eyelid surgery when they actually have a drooping brow. This surgery does not address the eyebrow problem and often leads to a less than satisfactory result. The brows are best lifted by keyhole (endoscopic) surgery with incisions made behind the hairline. Dr Lamb uses a CO2 laser in all these procedures to minimise bleeding, swelling and bruising to produce a faster recovery and better result.
Canthoplasty is the name of an eyelid surgery used to strengthen the lateral canthal tendon and surrounding supporting structure. The goal is to strengthen the tissues of the canthus to help maintain the normal position and relationship between the eyelid and eyeball. Canthoplasty is routinely performed by Dr Lamb for cosmetic lower lid surgery.
Droopy, puffy or baggy eyelids can make you look older, tired and can also impair vision. Surgery can correct these problems and refresh and redefine your appearance. A drooping brow is often a contributing factor or even the main cause of upper lid problems. Dr Lamb will assess whether the brow needs elevation and, if required, a brow lift will be performed at the same time as lid surgery.
Both are usually caused by horizontal loosening of the eyelid (like a loose tennis net), and also by weakness of the lower lid muscles (like the strap at the centre of a tennis net). Tightening on the outside or inside of the eyelid can also cause these conditions.
Eyelashes that turn in toward the eyeball are a common problem with Asian eyelids. When this occurs on the upper lid, it can cause eye irritation as well as visual obstruction. Surgical repair of this problem, combined with a double eyelid procedure, improves function and appearance. This can also occur on the lower lid with upturned lashes and can cause problems with contact lenses and LASIK surgery
Time takes its toll on our skin. Our repeated facial expressions create dynamic lines that are only present during animation. However, over time they will turn into static lines that are present when we are unanimated.
As we age our skin loses volume and elasticity. We also have a decrease in the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. These factors, along with environmental factors such as sun exposure, smoking and stress, contribute to the development of wrinkles and folds
Lips are the defining feature of your face with full lips considered a symbol of youth and beauty. There are many factors involved in achieving a well-balanced and natural looking lip. Areas to be considered are the border and the fine lines surrounding the lips, corners of the mouth and restoring volume to the thinning aged lip. Along with providing symmetry to the lip some women feel their lips are too thin and dermal fillers can help volumise their lips. Kris our nurse injector will always take the ‘less is more’ approach, ensuring that your end result is a set of beautiful, natural looking lip.
Ptosis is true drooping of the upper eyelid due to weakness of the eyelid (levator) muscle. Some patients think they have a cosmetic problem when they actually have a functional problem such as ptosis. Weakness and stretching of the upper eyelid muscle cause the lid margin to sit at a lower than normal level, often producing a ‘sleepy’ look. When severe, the pupil can be partially or totally covered and obstruct vision. As the muscle is now sitting higher than it should be, it tends to give people a hollowed appearance in the upper lid, and the eyebrows elevate to compensate for the weakened muscle. Reattachment of the muscle will lift the lid, fill in the hollow, and allow the brow to relax to its normal position.
