Be it to correct deformities or to have that perfect dimple, cosmetic surgery may help rejuvenate the face or provide a means to achieve your perfect face, improving your confidence and comfort in your own skin.

Cosmetic plastic surgery includes surgical and non-surgical procedures that enhance and reshape structures of the face to improve appearance and confidence.

Be it to take years off your face or to simply be the best you that you can be, facial cosmetic surgery is a way to find confidence and happiness in your appearance. Especially when it comes to the correction of defects retained from birth or acquired through disease, aging or trauma. Whatever the procedure desired, Dr Clare Neser performs cosmetic procedures with the same ultra-meticulous care needed for microsurgery.

The visible signs of ageing occur for a number of reasons: heredity, gravity, environmental conditions such as sunlight, as well as stress.

It may be combined with other procedures such as eyelid surgery, brow lift, facial lipofilling, liposuction and earlobe reduction to help you look years younger.

Surgery takes four hours and is performed under general anesthetic. One night in hospital is recommended. Recovery takes two weeks, but bruising and swelling may persist a little longer.

EAR MOULDING & OTOPLASTY

What is infant ear moulding?

In the first six weeks after birth, ear cartilage is very soft and malleable which allows treatment of ear deformities such as prominent ears, lop ear (the edge of the ear folds down), cup ear and Stahl’s ear. Ear shaping is a non-invasive, non-painful alternative to surgery and makes use of the EarWell external ear conformer, allowing pain-free reshaping of your baby’s ears.

What can I expect?

An ear-shaped silicone mould is attached to the ear and encourages your baby’s ear to grow into a normal shape. No anaesthesia is required, and the procedure is painless and performed in my rooms. Usually three applications are needed, two weeks apart, to achieve the best results.

Treatment is best begun in the first or second week after birth while the cartilage is soft, and lasts for six weeks.
