Rhinoplasty is often referred to as “nose reshaping” or a “nose reshaping”. Nose surgery enhances the proportions of your nose and facial harmony. It can also improve impaired breathing created by structural defects in the nose.

Rhinoplasty can treat the following:

  • Nose width at the bridge or in the size and position of the nostrils
  • Nasal asymmetry
  • Nasal tip that is enlarged, drooping, hooked or upturned
  • Nose size in relation to facial balance
  • Nose profile with visible depressions or bumps on the bridge of the nose
  • Nostrils that are wide, upturned and large

If you want a more symmetrical nose, it’s important to remember that everyone’s face is asymmetric to a certain extent. Results may not be entirely symmetric, however, the goal is to correct proportion and create facial balance.

Facial Fillers

Facial fillers are injectable substances which when injected into or below the skin add volume to the area and fill out lines. Numerous filler substances have been developed around the world. At Shire Cosmetic Medicine we have a range of fillers available which are either temporary or semi-permanent.

Facial fillers are injectables. Therefore, an anaesthetic agent in injectable form or topical cream is applied to the area before treatment. Should a topical cream be used, it needs to be applied for approximately one hour before treatment with plastic occlusion (cling wrap). Many of the modern facial fillers are premixed with local anaesthetic agents to help reduce discomfort associated with the injections.

Fat Transfer

Microlipotransfer involves the transfer of one’s own fat from areas of excess to areas of need. At Shire Cosmetic Medicine Dr Alan Evans, a facial plastic surgeon has a particular interest in this method of facial rejuvenation. Microlipotransfer to the face has undergone dramatic changes and advances over the last decade and results can be impressive, often more superior to that

Double Chin Treatment

A non-surgical minimally invasive treatment for the permanent elimination of the double chin. It is NOT for the treatment of lax or saggy skin in the neck giving the appearance of a “turkey neck”.

It involves the injection (multiple injections) of a non-human, non-animal chemical into the fat pad below the chin. The chemical is deoxycholic acid, a component of bile acids. Bile acids role in our body is to digest fats ingested in our diet. When deoxycholic acid is injected into the chin fat pad, it causes the fat cells to breakdown. This sets up an intense inflammatory reaction which then activates the scavenger mechanism in our skin to mop up the debris.
