Unlike plastic and reconstructive surgery, cosmetic surgery is aimed at enhancing or rejuvenating the face, breasts or body for aesthetic reasons. It is elective, in that it is usually not medically necessary, so it is important that you are choosing the right surgeon and right procedure and that surgery will fulfil your expectations. During your consultation with Mr Juling Ong, he will listen carefully to what you are hoping to achieve and give you expert, unbiased advice on whether surgery is the right choice for you at this stage.
Facial rejuvenation surgery encompasses facelifts, neck lifts, eyelid lifts and brow lifts, and the aim is to restore a more youthful, refreshed look by targeting many of the ageing changes we start to see as the facial tissues start to sag and our skin loses elasticity.
A brow lift produces a more rejuvenated appearance to the forehead, by correcting drooping brows and forehead lines that can make the patient appear tired or angry. Facial ageing doesn’t occur in isolation though, so Mr Ong can combine a brow lift with mid-facelift or eyelid surgery.
The eyes are often one of the first places to reveal signs of ageing, as the skin starts to sag on the upper eyelids, causing wrinkling, loss of definition around the eye and a hooded appearance. Underneath the eye, eye bags can appear as the fatty tissue bulges out. An eyelid lift or blepharoplasty can be performed on either the upper or lower lids or both.
As we age, the skin and underlying tissues of the face start to sag and we lose volume in the mid-face, causing the brows to droop and loss of definition along the jawline and neck. Deep lines can appear between the nose and mouth, known as the nasolabial folds. Smoking, sun damage and stress can all accelerate the process. A facelift can be a fantastic rejuvenating procedure, reversing many of these signs of ageing.
A facelift is often combined with other cosmetic facial surgery procedures such as a brow lift or blepharoplasty to produce the optimal results. Mr Ong can also combine a facelift and neck lift with non-surgical aesthetic treatments such as Anti-Wrinkle Injections and Dermal Fillers to produce the optimal outcome.
Cosmetic breast surgery is very popular in the UK, as it’s possible to reshape or resize the breasts into a more aesthetically pleasing appearance. Mr Juling Ong performs breast augmentation surgery with breast implants, which is the most requested cosmetic surgery procedure in the UK, popular with young women who have always been dissatisfied with the size of their breasts and also older women who have seen a loss of volume, due to ageing, pregnancy or weight fluctuations.
Breast reduction surgery is indicated for patients who have overly-large breasts that are affecting their confidence or causing physical issues. A breast uplift or mastopexy is a cosmetic breast procedure to address sagging of the skin and breast tissues and produce a more youthful shape and position of the breasts.
Mr Juling Ong also offers cosmetic surgery for the body, such as the abdominoplasty or tummy tuck. Often, due to weight gain or pregnancy, there is a loss of tone to the abdominal muscles and a stretching of the skin, which can’t be addressed with diet and exercise alone. A tummy tuck tightens the muscles and removes any excess skin to produce a more taut and smoother appearance to the abdomen. Arm reductions and thigh lifts are other body contouring procedures that can produce an improved shape to the body.
