There are many reasons why a person may wish to alter his/her nose: a desire to improve looks, to look younger by reversing the effects of age on a nose, to build self-confidence, or simply to breathe better. Rhinoplasty is an operation that changes the appearance and/or function of the nose by altering the underlying cartilage and bone

Even the slightest alteration to your nose can have a dramatic effect on the way you look. For most individuals, a nose job provides very satisfactory results. The most obvious benefit of rhinoplasty is renewed self-confidence in the way you look by improving the aesthetics of your nose.

IPL – Photorejuvenation

Visual signs of ageing are caused by two events. There is chronological ageing and environmental ageing. Chronological ageing is a normal process — changes tend to be subtle — there is general shrinkage of the skin, dryness, skin may remain smooth, there is loss of elasticity, and fine wrinkles may appear.

Photoageing or environmental ageing is due in large part to chronic sun exposure and other self-indulgent activities such as cigarette smoking. Photo-aged skin is also more prone to skin cancers.

At Shire Cosmetic Medicine we have a state-of-the-art Intense Pulsed Light Machine (IPL) which is excellent for treating red veins, brown pigmentation caused by sun damage, rosacea and much more.

Ear Surgery (Otoplasty)

Ear surgery can dramatically alter an individual’s appearance just by giving a person folds of the ear cartilage where these were undeveloped or by making protruding ears look more natural. It can reduce their size, reshape the ears, position the ears closer to the head or make them more symmetrical.

Ear surgery starts with an incision behind the ear, in the fold where the ear is connected to the head. Dr Evans will then clear away the needed amounts of skin and cartilage to accomplish the correct result. In some situations, Dr Evans will trim the cartilage, in order to shape it into a more attractive form; then pinning the cartilage back with sutures to guard the cartilage.

Wrinkle Treatments

Wrinkles are the result of a number of events that act together, and as we get older these wrinkles become more prominent. Wrinkle treatment is a relatively straightforward and painless procedure. A muscle relaxant substance, a highly purified protein derived from a bacterial toxin is administered by injection into the individual muscles. A frozen ice pack is applied to the treatment area for a few minutes to ease any discomfort.

The desired clinical effect can be seen from 3 to 7 days following treatment. In some individuals, the full effect may be delayed for up to 2 weeks.
