The Rectus Abdominus muscles pass from the ribs and breastbone to the pubic bones. A ligamentous band called the Linea Alba holds the Recti together. This band softens and stretches as the abdomen enlarges during pregnancy and the muscle moves apart. This separation is called a Divarication. If it does not resolve spontaneously then surgical correction can be preformed. 

Abdominoplasty

Any type of acne spot can lead to scarring.  Scarring can occur if you pick or squeeze spots. Acne scars can be classified as:

  • ice pick scars – small, deep holes.
  • rolling scars – caused by bands of scar.
  • boxcar scars – round or oval depressions, or craters in the skin

Types of spots

  • blackheads – they’re not filled with dirt, but are black because the inner lining of the hair follicle produces colour
  • whiteheads – will not empty when squeezed
  • papules – small red bumps
  • pustules – similar to papules, but have a white tip
  • nodules – large hard lumps that build up beneath the surface of the skin and can be painful
  • cysts – the most severe type of spot caused by acne; they’re large pus-filled lumps and carry the greatest risk of causing permanent scarring

Almost always congenital unless due to a trauma like burns, cancer treatment or accident. The treatment is surgical, either with augmentation, lift or reduction. 

Augmentation

After pregnancy naturally the breasts fill with milk. If the woman does not breast feed the stimulus to produce more milk ceases and the breasts deflate. The same happens after breast feeding weaning of the baby. This loss of volume and excess skin causes emptiness of the breasts.  

Breast Lift

Heavy brows can be natural or can be due general ageing. Normally women have their brows above what is called the orbital rim, while men have theirs on the rim itself.

Burn scars following a burn injury or skin graft can be improved through non-surgical and surgical methods. The use of advanced technologies like artificial skins like Integra or lasers to resurface or break down the scars have revolutionised burn scar management.

Gynaecomastia affects nearly a third of men in their life time. There are physiological and pathological causes. It is essential that a medical doctor takes a full history and performs a full relevant examination before having any treatment.

Nipple inversion normally does not lead to function changes in relation to breast feeding. It is normally graded into 3 grades depending on the response of the nipple to stimulus. Mechanical methods can be tried but are usually unsuccessful in the long term. A careful history and examination is needed to exclude organic causes.  

Minor surgical correction

Nasal deformity can lead to aesthetic and functional changes in the nose needing surgical or non-surgical correction. For purely aesthetic deformities sometimes non-surgical options like fillers work. For the rest surgery is needed. 

Filler | Rhinoplasty 

Oily skin is the result of the overproduction of sebum from the sebaceous glands in the skin. It can also lead to more acne formation.

Having pores is normal, but what most people do not like are open pores. We need to appreciate though that open pores are just your body’s response to deal with the secretions like sebum. Controlling your skin will help with the pores. Closing your pores artificially can lead to other problems like acne.

Post pregnancy changes to your body can last much longer than expected. Some of these changes you might like, some you might want to improve on.

Augmentation | Lipofilling 

Stretch marks, also known as Striae, are a form of scarring.   They are caused by tearing of the dermis during periods of rapid growth of the body, such as during puberty or pregnancy. In theory they should improve on their own but often they don’t. 

Dermaroller | PeelsLaser

photoaging is essentially what sun damage is. UV radiation affects how our collagen is made and it’s quality. It also affects how we make pigments. Without adequate skin care , conditions like actinic keratoses, a pre-cancerousskin growth, develops. Sun damage can also lead to skin cancer.
