Rhinoplasty in Singapore – What are my options?

The nose is a very vital part of our body and affects both our bodily functions and our facial features. The nose can, in fact, affect our daily lives. For example, obstructions in the nose will hamper proper breathing which can result in other major health conditions. Aesthetically, the nose is said to affect how well our other facial features blend in our face and can affect one’s appearance.

If you are one of those people who are more concerned about your facial appearance, being unhappy with how your nose looks like can disrupt the harmony of your life. To address the different problems with the nose, rhinoplasty is performed. Rhinoplasty, also called “nose job” or “nose reshaping” is a surgical procedure that changes the shape of the nose which can correct both functional problems (such as breathing difficulties and nose injuries) and aesthetic concerns (such as reducing or increasing nose size, correcting a crooked nose and nasal hump removal).

With the tropical climate in Singapore, many are prone to pigmentation problems. This is why, in this article, One Face Skin & Aesthetics Clinic gives us insights as to what pigmentation removal in Singapore is most suitable for your pigmentation problem.

Jaw Surgery in Singapore—What You Need to Know

Patients with misaligned jaws and have trouble speaking correctly, chewing easily or breathing may opt for jaw surgery in Singapore.

This is a functional procedure and is often not associated with cosmetic purposes. However, jaw surgery can also improve one’s appearance.

Let’s discover more about this procedure and who is suitable for jaw surgery.

What is jaw surgery? 

Corrective jaw surgery, medically known as orthognathic surgery is a procedure performed to correct misalignment or deformities of the jaw and facial skeleton. An oral and maxillofacial surgeon performs this procedure.

The procedure can be performed on both minor as well as major conditions.

Orthognathic surgery is suitable for people who exhibit the following:

  • Poor bite
  • Difficulty speaking
  • Jaw joint
  • Lack of harmony between jaw and facial structure
  • Long jaws, crooked jaws, and short jaws

Note that corrective jaw surgery can be performed on both the upper jaw and the lower jaw.

How to find out if you need corrective jaw surgery

Nose thread lift is the most popular type of nose augmentation. But why? Well, most Singaporeans have a lower nose bridge with a more rounded tip. Singaporeans, therefore, strive to achieve the raised bridged and more pointed tip commonly seen in western cultures.

Nose augmentation can be carried out in two main ways—surgical rhinoplasty and non-surgical rhinoplasty.

Let’s find out more about nose thread lift in Singapore and why it may be the best for you.

With the procedure, the surgeon is able to raise the bridge, and change the contour and the overall shape of the nose.

Invisalign Costs in Singapore

Almost everyone dreams of having straight teeth but the process of correcting crooked teeth is such a pain for some. Getting metal braces is a common and obvious way of improving one’s smile but nowadays some people prefer the invisible solution which is Invisalign

Invisalign is a clear aligner orthodontic treatment that utilizes custom-made aligners that will aid in shifting one’s teeth to the proper position. These clear aligners are made to be thin and transparent to avoid the normal bulky look that traditional braces give.

A lot of dental clinics offer this popular treatment and usually invisalign costs in Singapore may vary. This article from Dental Designs will give you an idea of how it works and how much an Invisalign treatment would cost you here in the Lion City.

You might wonder how this treatment works. You might also wonder how different it is from traditional braces. Well, first and foremost, the design is different since it does not include any metal wires and brackets. It is also more advanced compared to the traditional ones but the goal of both treatments are the same and that is to straighten misaligned teeth.
