PHI Clinic focuses on three non surgical anti-ageing procedures that, Dr Tapan believes, rival their surgical equivalents in terms of results.
The fast paced world of non-surgical aesthetic procedures becomes ever more magical with every month that passes by. From a BCAM meeting in Nice, an IMCAS meeting in Paris, to the Anti-Ageing show in Las Vegas; new procedures and techniques are being constantly invented and developed, and the non-surgical revolution is emerging as the leader in the anti-ageing field.
We now have cutting-edge refined fillers, great Botox techniques, and lasers which can do everything from rejuvenating the face to removing even the most stubborn areas of cellulite. But as new developments in our field come and go, in the last three or four years I have been preoccupied with three fantastic non surgical procedures.
These are three procedures which can now replicate, in a much more natural way, results which were before thought only possible with well known surgical procedures: rhinoplasty, lower blepharoplasty, and a lower facelift.
non surgical nose job
The non-surgical nose job is a real favourite of mine; a procedure which takes only a few minutes to perform, with no pain or side-effects and great results.
With this procedure we can do many things. We can correct imperfections after a surgical rhinoplasty, we can straighten injured noses, and we can even build up and shape noses in Asian and Afro-Caribbean patients who want to have more European-looking noses.
The most wonderful application of these non-surgical nose shaping techniques, however, is that in many cases we can replicate the surgical procedure alternative, by straightening the nose, evening out the dorsal hump, lifting the tip of the nose, changing the shape of the nostrils, and optically we can even make the nose look smaller.
Of course, not all patients are suitable, but this modern cutting-edge technique now provides a great alternative to all those who would never consider an operation.
Great expertise is needed with this procedure, but by carefully injecting dermal filler above and below the ‘bump’ on the nose, we can very easily make the most ‘hooked’ of noses look completely straight. Additionally, by applying filler around the tip of the nose, we can make it look thinner and more refined, and can further lift the tip of the nose by injecting Botox into the depresor nasalis, the muscle which continuously pulls the nose down.
tear trough treatment
The second of my favourite procedures is the non-surgical eye bag removal, commonly known as the tear trough procedure.
In my opinion, in 95 per cent of patients presenting with a lower eye bag, dark circle or a loss of volume in the area below the eye, we can now very successfully correct the problem with a careful and intricate application of hyaluronic acid fillers. Even the older patient, with a significant lower eye bag swelling and skin laxity, can benefit from this procedure greatly.
This procedure rejuvenates the tired or ageing face like no other, and the results can last as long as 24 months.
Non-Surgical Neck Lift
Last but not least, I have to mention the Nefertiti neck lift; a very simple procedure, with a very apt name. This procedure uses Botox and dermal fillers to tighten the skin around the jaw line and to get rid of that most tell tale of signs of ageing, jowling.
Injecting carefully calculated doses of Botox into the platysma (the thin sheet of muscle around the neck which is constantly pulling the ageing skin downwards), the strength of this muscle is weakened, and the muscles on the upper face perform a natural ‘facelift’.
By filling the areas of fat atrophy around the jaw line, just like re-inflating a balloon, we straighten up the jaw line and magically erase those pesky jowls; a true lower facelift.
