At a Glance

With advances in both technology and techniques, it seems the current thinking in cosmetic surgery is less is more – Dr John Flynn

Surgical and non-surgical face procedures

While facelift surgery is still the best option for sagging features, too much skin or reversing gravity, patients are now showing a clear preference for smaller, minimally invasive procedures.  The concept is to postpone the need for more radical surgery. According to Dr Flynn, there is a lot that can be done before the need to go as far as a facelift.

Non-surgical options can be combined with the following surgical procedures, all of which are becoming less invasive.

  • Mini face lift or S-lift
  • Neck lift
  • Brow lift
  • Eyelid surgery
  • Laser resurfacing
  • Chin and cheek implants
  • Facial fat transfers
  • Facial liposculpture
  • Photo rejuvenation

Cosmetic Skin Procedures

Soft Skin Program

Dr Flynn’s Soft Skin Program combines a series of short treatments that are effective, whether used in conjunction with surgery or as stand-alone treatments. It is designed to put back the glow factor.

Skin texture

For skin texture and complexion, peels and non-ablative laser treatments target brown pigment problems and red vascular issues like broken capillaries and red blemishes. Stronger lasers for skin rejuvenation can also help tremendously.

Facial balance

The full range of dermal fillers can be used to correct lines and wrinkles: soft fillers for fine lines and firmer fillers for facial contouring. Longer lasting fillers should be considered as an option.

Sagging skin

This is where lifting techniques are best employed. In good hands a facelift is the best procedure to lift sagging skin. But there are alternatives.

Thread lifts

Threads require no surgery and leave no scars. Well placed and anchored threads provide an alternative to a facelift for suitable patients. Dr Flynn has pioneered the use of thread lifts in Australia and internationally and also teaches surgeons how to use the threads.

Benefits of non-surgical treatments

This combination approach offers patients excellent results with minimal downtime and scarring.

Ageing gracefully

Combining conservative surgery with non-surgical facial treatments is really the leading edge of cosmetic practice. Not only is it more discreet, the results are more natural looking.

Usually there is no need for a general anaesthetic and procedures can be performed as day surgery if desired.
