Cosmetic surgery procedures performed at our facility:

Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)

Do you struggle with drooping or puffy eyelids that make you look like you’re constantly tired? Blepharoplasty can address these troubles by removing excess skin and fat from the upper or lower eyelids. This procedure helps to rejuvenate your appearance, giving you a refreshed and more youthful look.

Breast Augmentation (Breast Enlargement)

Breast augmentation is a popular procedure designed to enhance the size and shape of the breasts. Whether you’re looking to restore volume or achieve a fuller bust, our skilled surgeons will guide you through the process and help you choose the right implants to achieve your desired results.

Breast Reduction

For patients experiencing physical discomfort due to excessively large breasts, a breast reduction can be a life-changing solution. This procedure removes excess breast tissue and reshapes the breasts, creating a more balanced and proportionate figure. This is often the key to relieving back, neck and shoulder pain and preventing these conditions from worsening.

Mastopexy (Breast Lift)

Over time, factors such as pregnancy, weight fluctuations and ageing can cause breasts to sag. A mastopexy, or breast lift, lifts and reshapes the breasts, restoring their youthful position and firmness. This procedure can also be combined with breast augmentation for those seeking the benefits of both procedures.

Face Lift

Ageing will inevitably bring about changes in the face, including sagging skin and deep wrinkles. A facelift is an innovative procedure that tightens the underlying tissues and removes excess skin, to smooth out wrinkles and reveal a more youthful appearance.


Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure designed to address both aesthetic and functional issues related to the labia. Whether it’s reducing the size of the labia minora or correcting asymmetry, this procedure can enhance comfort, confidence and overall well-being.


Sometimes, stubborn pockets of fat refuse to budge despite a healthy lifestyle. Liposuction can help sculpt and contour various areas of the body by getting rid of excess fat deposits. It’s an effective way for men and women to achieve a more toned and proportionate physique.

Otoplasty (Ear Surgery)

Otoplasty can address prominent or misshapen ears, harmonising them with the rest of your facial features. This procedure reshapes and repositions the ears, creating a more balanced and natural appearance.

Tummy Tuck

For individuals struggling with loose abdominal skin and weakened muscles due to pregnancy or significant weight loss, a tummy tuck can provide remarkable results. This procedure removes excess skin, tightens the abdominal muscles and creates a smoother, firmer tummy.


Rhinoplasty, or nose reshaping surgery, can enhance facial symmetry by altering the size and shape of the nose. Whether you’re looking to correct breathing difficulties or achieve a more proportional nose, our skilled surgeons can help you achieve the results you desire.

Pain management – What to Know Before Your Surgery

Managing pain after surgery is an important undertaking that patients need to familiarise themselves with. Proper pain control will not only make patients more comfortable but can also aid with the recovery process. Pain management can also reduce the risk of complications such as blood clots forming. By following your doctor’s advice and making use of the best modern medicine has to offer, pain management is simpler than ever before.

The Importance of Pain Management

When your body is in pain for an extended period of time it is bound to take its toll both physically and mentally. Pain can prevent you from doing basic tasks and getting enough exercise. Depending on the surgery you received, you might be unable to perform strenuous activities. But in most cases, your doctor will advise you to perform less exerting activities, such as walking around, as soon as you feel comfortable. This helps to prevent muscle atrophy and promotes healing by stimulating blood flow. When you manage your pain effectively you will be able to walk around at an adequate time to speed up your recovery.

Pain can also have a negative effect on your mental well-being, especially prolonged pain that is localised in one place, such as a surgery site. Patients can experience anxiety, mood swings and even fall into depression if pain persists for too long. When the body is under so much stress it can lead to even more complications, that could have most likely been avoided. Your doctor will assess your pain levels and prescribe pain medication accordingly. Patients will also be required to disclose some of their medical history as well as any allergies they might have to ensure that they do not receive any medication that could be detrimental to their health.

Common Types of Pain Medications

Medication taken orally (by mouth):

These are any tablets, capsules, liquids or lozenges that you have to drink, swallow or chew. Most people will be familiar with this type of pain medication as there are many varieties that are available at pharmacies without the need for a prescription. Be sure to follow your doctor’s instructions when taking any prescribed medication at home as an overdose or underdose can have negative effects.

Medication administered via a drip:

If a patient is in severe pain they might require an intravenous delivery of medication such as morphine, oxycodone or codeine. These are usually regulated by your doctor and are quite powerful painkillers. Another delivery method is knowns as patient-controlled analgesia (PCA), where a patient has some control over the administration of medication. The patient presses a button when their pain is too severe and a small dose of painkillers is delivered intravenously.
