Types Of Facelifts In Singapore

In the past few years, looks have become an important factor for Singaporeans. They see it as a way of socializing with others. From young to old, everyone seems to have become conscious of how they look. For this reason, the cosmetic industry in Singapore has witnessed a boom. One of the most common cosmetic procedures is known as facial rejuvenation or facelift. It has been used by many people over the last couple of years, in order to achieve a young and youthful look. A lot of research has gone into developing the technique and a wide range of facelift options is available today. Here is a list of 5 common facelifts Singapore and its people have become most fond of in recent years.

1. Thread lifts

Thread lifts are another method that is gaining popularity in Singapore. A thread lift procedure involves the use of thread materials that are used in stitches during surgery. The threads are placed under the skin and are used to tighten the region around the face and neck.

2. S-Lift

The S-Lift procedure is usually done on the lower part of the face – the neck and jawline. The name comes from the S-shaped incision that the surgeon makes in order to separate the upper layer of the skin from the underlying tissues. The muscles and tissue are then tightened to give the face a slimmer look. The jawline and neck becomes more expressive and the face looks younger overall. The procedure is minimally invasive and therefore preferred by many over the other traditional surgery techniques.

3. Skin Only Lift

Cutaneous or skin only lifts are done in the lower facial region and the neck. The procedure involves small incisions around the ear that allows surgeons to dissect the skin from the underlying muscles. Excess skin is stretched and the remaining part is stretched to the incision point before it is closed. This form of muscle tightening technique provides a more youthful look to the patient’s face.

4. MACS Lift

The MACS and the Quicklift are modified procedures based on the S-Lift technique. The only difference is that the MACS Lift procedure requires more time than the S-Lift. But the results are more dramatic and that is what makes it a good option for candidates with minor facial aging.

5. subperiosteal facelift

The subperiosteal facelift treats the soft tissues in the face and uplifts the skin to provide a rejuvenated and younger look.

Conclusion

The different types of facelift procedures available are gaining worldwide popularity and are used by a number of young and old people to tighten their skin.

Myths vs facts about eye vision

Eyesight is very important for every one of us. Therefore, we should take all possible care to protect our eyes. Those who are above the age of 40 should especially ensure that the lutein in their eyes is at adequate levels. If these folks fail to take the required steps, they are likely to be affected by vision loss, cataracts, and so on. Though lutein can be obtained by consuming green leafy vegetables such as kale and spinach, egg yolks, certain varieties of fruits and corn, not everyone seems to evince interest in eating such healthy foods that can supply to them a good amount of lutein. This means there is no other alternative for people except to go for suitable supplements for getting lutein.

 

Why even experts consider that lutein is important

  1. It is a known fact that only the skin and eyes are the only two organs exposed directly to the external environment, which means they bear the brunt of free radicals that are waiting in the wings to harm the human system. Lutein can effectively counter the negative impact of free radicals on the body.
  1. Indoor lighting as well as sunlight have blue wavelengths and lutein can help in filtering the high energy that emanates from them. It can significantly reduce the impact of the blue light on the retina of the eyes and bring down the risks of developing muscular degeneration or cataracts.

The human body does not produce lutein and the foods we eat alone can supply it. But there are certain myths surrounding this substance. Let us have a look.

 

Myth # 1

Vision loss or weakening of vision is quite normal as we age.

Fact: If we ensure to get the required nutrients including lutein, we can continue to have a good vision even as we age.

 

Myth # 2

Multivitamins supply adequate lutein to us.

Fact: Though certain multivitamins contain lutein, the quantity available in them will not be adequate for maintaining the health of our eyes. So, we should either go for specific foods or opt for supplements in order to get the right amount of lutein for our eyes.

 

Myth # 3

Eating healthy foods will ensure enough supply of lutein to us.

FACT: Unless we specifically eat leafy and dark green vegetables like kale, spinach, etc. as well as other items such as green peas, broccoli, lettuce, and green beans, we cannot get enough of lutein. If we are not able to consume these items regularly, we must go for lutein supplements.

 

Myth # 4

We can afford to wait until we are affected by eye problems.

FACT: We cannot foresee when issues like vision loss, cataracts, etc. may affect us. So, it is better to take preventive steps like eating the right foods or consuming lutein supplements for our eye health.
