Eyelid Reshaping at The Cardiff Clinic
Eyelid Reshaping, be it for excess skin or eye bag removal can give the biggest “wow” factor resulting in a refreshed and less tired appearance to one’s looks.
With the aging of the facial skeleton and tissues, genetics, lifestyle and smoking all of these factors will determine the potential development of eye bags, lax skin, heavy eyelids or dark circles.
For those with only fine lines present Anti-wrinkle injections using botulinum toxin can soften the crow’s feet radiating out from the eyes and elevate the brow. But if the key concern is with skin excess, general laxity, or eye bags (which are usually due to fatty pockets behind the lid) then surgery is the only real way to tackle these issues.
Everyone is unique and must be assessed by a surgeon qualified and experienced with this type of surgery. One must always consider carefully where the surgery is undertaken, as regular follow up and aftercare is also just as important as the operation itself.

Get a Markle-like Sparkle at Orchard Facial Procedures
Sculptural Face Lifting has been dubbed as ‘natures answer to botox and filler.’ It is an anti-gravity method designed to lift the face, strengthen its muscles, correct its form and remove unnecessary sagging. The technique is taught by Yakov Gershkovich, a recognised authority on natural rejuvenation and facial manipulation. His method is the modern-day mega trend in the field of holistic aesthetics, which has been used by thousands of women around the world who prefer holistic alternatives to invasive lifting procedures and is believed to have been praised by Meghan Markle, Kate Moss, and Jennifer Lopez.
Sculptural Face Lifting is performed by deep tissue massage of the facial muscles and part of the technique is the buccal intra-oral massage where muscles are massaged from within the oral cavity. As a result, muscle tone and elasticity are restored, skin becomes smoother, helping to return the face to its natural shape.

Fat grafting at Only You Clinic
Fat transfer or fat grafting is a procedure in which fat cells are taken from one area (usually the stomach, hips, or thighs) and transferred to the face, in order to rejuvenate the area and fill in hollows. The fat cells are specially prepared before they are injected, in order to give them the best chance for survival. The cells will establish themselves in the new site, and continue to live long-term, offering ongoing facial rejuvenation. Patients love this procedure, because it uses their own cells for rejuvenation, and does not need to be repeated over time in order to maintain the results.
Depending on which area of the face is to be treated, the amount of the transferred fat that survives varies. This is because the transferred fat cells rely on microscopic blood vessels to grow into them the keep them alive and these vessels can be sheared off when there is movement between the transferred fat cells and the surrounding tissue. In essence fat grafting to the lower half of the face (which is very mobile) tends to work less well than fat grafting to the upper half of the face which is relatively static
Whilst the volume increase may be permeant, the skin of the face will continue to deteriorate with age – it may be worth considering additional treatments to compliment the fat grafting to maintain a youthful and rejuvenated appearance such as chemical peels, micro-needling or laser skin treatments.
Fat grafting to cheek, lower lids, and temples. As can be seen in this example of a 70-year-old lady who underwent a single episode of fat grafting to the cheeks, lower lids and temple areas, fat grafting (demonstrated in the right-hand photographs) effectively counteracts the loss of volume seen in the images in the left side. There is an improvement in facial shape and a more youthful appearance.
