The secret to luscious lips

Who doesn’t love a beautiful, plump pout? Whilst lip fillers are widely and readily available at many different salons and medical spas, you must be sure to see a registered aesthetic surgeon such as Dr. Bhar, with the skill and experience to administer the filler in a safe and professional way; achieving the results you desire.

Here’s the secret to luscious lips…

Why have a lip augmentation? 

Lip fillers give a natural lift and fullness to the area, restoring youth, plumpness, and collagen that may have been lost over time.

 

What are the benefits?

Dr. Bhar will consider you a good candidate for lip fillers if, as well as being in good health, you have any of the following requirements:

-Increased lip definition

-Increased lip volume

-Smoother lip and mouth contour

-Support the structure of your lips

-Wrinkle smoothing

-Restoration of youthful volume to the lips

-Redefine symmetry of lips

What can you expect to happen during the procedure? 

Initially, your lips will be numbed via topical anaesthetic or via a dental block. Dr. Bhar will then inject your lips with dermal filler, using a special technique to shape the cupids bow and add uniform fullness and definition to your lips.  The procedure is non-invasive and takes 45-60 minutes.

What happens in the 24 hours after the lip augmentation? 

Immediately after the procedure, you may experience redness or bruising where the injections have entered the skin. You may also experience some swelling and tenderness, so make sure you have a stress-free 24 hours planned after your treatment to relax and recover. The swelling can last up to 72 hours and then gradually decreases. Bruising can take up to 7 days to settle, or in some cases, longer.

 

How long do the effects last? 

The longevity of your lip filler is dependent on various factors, such as the brand of filler used, the amount of filler used in the initial procedure, and the quality of your skin – but can last up to 12 months, depending on how your body metabolises the filler.

Why choose Dr. Bhar?

Dr. Bhar is a highly qualified cosmetic surgeon and is an expert in lip filler, augmentations (and reductions). His procedures are always sympathetically tailored to your individual needs and aesthetic taste.

Why a cheek lift is the new full facelift

It’s the surgical treatment responsible for reversing hundreds of long, tired faces. Replumping cheeks, reducing jowls and redefining cheekbones; here’s the lowdown on why patients are loving the cheek lift and how to know if it’s the right ‘fake facelift’ for you.

Why have a cheek lift?

You are a great candidate for a cheek lift if as well as being in good health you have one or more of the following concerns:

-Sagging of the cheeks and the surrounding area – one of the earliest signs of aging

-Nasolabial folds and loss of volume or definition in the cheeks

-Sagging eyebrows and eyelids and a hollowing underneath the eyes, giving you a weary appearance

-Loose skin and displacement of fat and tissues around the neck and jawline, resulting in jowls

-Drooping corners of the mouth or “marionette” lines on the chin

-Desire to appear more youthful and increase self-confidence

What are the benefits of a cheek lift?

​1. Quick & easy – you can be in and out during your lunch break as the treatment takes less than one hour. The typical full recovery time after a cheek lift is two to three weeks post-surgery.
2. Minimal swelling – you experience minimal swelling because percutaneous suspension means there is much less tissue trauma than regular surgery.
3. Comfort – Local anesthetic is used at specific points to reduce any discomfort.

How does the cheek lift work?

The cheek lift, or mid-facelift, by percutaneous suspension, is a minimally invasive procedure which can dramatically improve the appearance of the cheek and midface regions.

Dr Bhar’s procedure reverses the telltale signs of aging, restoring fullness to the cheekbones and refreshing the area under the eyes for a rejuvenated appearance.

Why choose Dr. Bhar?

Dr. Bhar is an expert in cheek and mid-facelift augmentations. His cheek lift procedures are always tailored to the individual needs and aesthetic taste of every patient, producing natural, youthful and beautiful results. A specialised procedure such as this should always be handled by an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Bhar to ensure it meets your expectations and is safe.

The best cure for a double-chin

A double-chin or sagging skin under the chin is one of the most frustrating aesthetic issues a woman can have. Diet and exercise can only get you so far once stubborn small pockets of fat are accumulating under your chin. Before you turn to turtlenecks to hide your aging chin, consider a chin lift for a permanent reversal to these unappealing changes.

Why do I have a double-chin?

As we age the muscles in the lower face start to lose tension and elasticity and start to become slack. The body can then start storing excess fat in this pouch, causing the skin to droop even further.

How does the PDO chin lift work?

PDO chin tightening is a non-invasive and safe surgery that doesn’t even require you to go under the knife. PDO threads are inserted into the year to tighten and lift the affected area. This stitching method has been used in medicine for over 30 years, and is now being applied in aesthetics.

Turning back this telltale sign of aging requires a professional with expertise in chin and neck procedures. Dr. Bhar is an expert in facial rejuvenation and has a leading understanding of how to transform the complicated chin and neck area. A Diplomate of the Royal College of Surgeons of Glasgow, a Korean Board Certified Cosmetic Surgeon, and Board Certified from the American Board of Aesthetic Medicine, Dr. Bhar is qualified to handle your procedure with the utmost safety and help you achieve the tight chin and jawline results you desire.

The benefits of chin tightening

1. A tighter jawline – Collagen fibers contract and multiply which firms and improves laxity.
2. Improved skin texture – Connective tissue contracts to improve the skin’s contour, texture, and architecture.
3. A smoother and smaller neckline – Circulation improves and retained fluids drain from the subcutaneous adipose tissue to reduce edema (swelling), erythema (redness) and overall volume of the under-chin area.

How long do the results last?

The positive results of the chin lift can last up to two years and can be used in conjunction with Dr. Bhar’s other treatments for an integrated bespoke rejuvenation program.

Are you a candidate for chin tightening?

Dr. Bhar will consider you a good candidate for the PDO Chin Tightening if, as well as being in good health, you have one or more of the following concerns:

  • Sagging skin on your jawline, resulting in jowls
  • Fat deposits underneath the chin which interfere with the contour of your neck
  • Excess fat under the jawline creating a double-chin or triple-chin
  • Horizontal banding underneath the chin
  • Difficulty in budging stubborn fat under the jawline
  • Desire to appear more youthful and boost self-confidence

How to get rid of dark circles and eye bags

The eyes are the window to the soul. But what if yours are tired, saggy, and plagued by dark circles, even after a good night’s sleep?

Every woman knows it’s hard to feel your best when these unattractive eye bags are getting in the way of you being your beautiful, energetic self. Instead of having to rely on thick concealers and makeup, consider instead the eye rejuvenation.

Why do my eyes look so tired?

Aging around the eyes often happens first due to the skin being thinner and more delicate. Puffiness starts to develop from tissues and tiny pockets of fat accumulating on the upper and lower lids, and sagginess, wrinkles and eye bags start to appear as the skin loses laxity.

What is the eye rejuvenation treatment?

The PDO Eye Rejuvenation is a minimally invasive treatment that lifts and tightens sagging skin tissue, using threads made of Polydioxanone (PDO). These threads are commonly used within the medical world for suturing (stitches) and are completely safe. They dissolve after approximately 6 months.

What are the benefits of the eye rejuvenation?

Eyes are lifted – The skin around the eye is instantly lifted
Eyes are tighter – Collagen production is stimulated, which improves skin texture, fine lines and elasticity
Reduced sagging – Fat tissues are contracted which causes the skin to tighten
Feel better – Increased confidence and freedom to look fresh-faced without makeup.

Are you a candidate for an eye rejuvenation?

Dr. Bhar will consider you a good candidate for the PDO Eye Rejuvenation if as well as being in good health you have one or more of the following concerns:

-Puffy eyes, due to small pockets of fat around the eyes
-Bags and dark circles underneath the eyes
-Heavy looking or hooded eyelid
-Crows feet and tear troughs
-Drooping upper or lower eyelids, resulting in loose and aging skin
-Saggy and creasing upper lid making it hard to apply makeup and/or affecting your vision range

How long do the results last?

The effects of the treatment last for around a year. If the procedure is repeated at around 6-9 months after the first, the length of the effects are multiplied to last up to around 3 years.

Why choose Dr. Bhar?

Dr. Bhar is an expert in rejuvenating and transforming tired eyes. His eye rejuvenation procedures are always tailored to the individual needs and aesthetic taste of every patient, producing natural, youthful and beautiful results.

A specialised procedure such as this should always be handled by an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Bhar to ensure it meets your expectations and is safe.

Is vaginal rejuvenation for me?

Neither a ‘designer vagina’ nor a ‘mummy makeover’, a vaginal rejuvenation is a simple term encompassing many different procedures all designed to tighten, lift and boost a woman’s vagina and confidence.

Whilst it’s natural to feel apprehensive about a treatment in such a sensitive area, it’s actually one of the fastest-growing treatments at medical spas. With the treatment hitting the mainstream, we thought we’d share what it’s all about, why it’s so popular, and whether it’s the right procedure for you.

Could vaginal rejuvenation help you?

Loved by a diverse range of women, including post-partum and post-menopausal, the vaginal rejuvenation offers relief from physical symptoms, as well as improve the appearance of the vagina. If you have concerns with the health of your vagina, it’s not something you should ignore and it’s important to consider what possible solutions are available. Dr. Bhar will consider you a good candidate if you have one or more of the following issues:

– Laxity of the vagina
– Stress urinary incontinence
– Lack of lubrication
– Excessive labia tissue, resulting in embarrassment and physical discomfort
– Problems following childbirth or the menopause

What are the benefits?

– Dramatic increase in vaginal tightness
– Reduce or eliminate urinary stress incontinence
– Reduce or eliminate vaginal dryness
– Enhance your sexual gratification
– See improvements to the appearance of the treated area
– Large impact on overall happiness and quality of life

How does it work?

There are two types of non-surgical energy-based treatments for vaginal rejuvenation which operate by using heat:

1. Radiofrequency treatment: It works by delivering electromagnetic radio waves to the underlying fibers, stimulating the skin to produce more collagen proteins within the skin and muscle tissues, creating a toning and tightening effect.

2. CO2 laser treatment: The laser heats up the upper layers of the tissue, causing the fibres in the lower layers to make more collagen. This makes the skin and muscles firmer and tighter.

Other methods which improve vaginal tightness include:

3. Kegel and pelvic floor exercises: These exercises strengthen the muscles in and around the vagina.

4. Vaginoplasty: A surgical procedure which tightens the vagina.

Why choose Dr. Bhar?

Dr. Bhar is an expert in vaginal rejuvenation techniques. His procedures are always tailored to the individual needs and aesthetic taste of every patient, producing natural, youthful and beautiful results. A specialised procedure such as this should always be handled by an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Bhar to ensure it meets your expectations and is safe.

The five secrets to slimmer thighs

It’s well-documented that most women seem to hate their thighs.

Saddlebags, cellulite, trunks, pear shape, orange peel, thunder thighs, call them what you want; the negative connotations associated with this area of the body is unwarranted when new solutions are available. Whilst the photoshopped thigh gap dream isn’t the right shape for everyone, if you’re suffering from chafing discomfort, struggling to fit into your skinny jeans comfortably, or your confidence is suffering due to cellulite, it’s worth exploring Dr. Bhar’s five options to shift the fat in this notoriously stubborn area.

Which thigh reduction treatment is right for me?

1 – Liposculpture

Dr. Bhar delivers this liposculpture treatment to contour your thighs with laser-precision, getting rid of undesirable hard-to-shift fatty deposits on the outer or inner thighs, achieving a slimmer, sleeker look.

2 – Saddlebags Lipoplasty

This innovative technique called tumescent lipoplasty is available without the need for general anesthesia! Liposuction gently extracts the targeted unwanted fat cells from your thighs through tiny cannulas. Your remaining thigh fat will be sculpted until the desired contour is reached.

3 – Inner Thighs Liposuction

A thigh contouring procedure which utilizes the same tumescent liposculpture technique to remove excess fat from your inner thighs. This is great for people who suffer discomfort and irritation from the chafing experienced when your thighs rub together.

4 – CoolSculpting

An expert treatment which freezes your unwanted thigh fat cells, causing your body to eliminate them over the ensuing days and weeks, resulting in noticeable, yet natural-looking fat reduction. You’ll require no downtime and results are immediate.

5 – Ultherapy

Ultherapy directs sound waves deep into the skin, gently heating your skin until it is tightened and lifted, with results appearing in two to three months. A hidden benefit is the stimulation and production of new collagen, helping your thigh skin appear more even-toned, plumped and natural.

Why choose Dr. Bhar?

Dr. Bhar is an expert in thigh contouring techniques. His procedures are always tailored to the individual needs and aesthetic taste of every patient, producing natural, youthful and beautiful looking legs.
