Discover the benefits of non-surgical face lifting

Mohammed Anabtawi offers patients surgical facelift as the gold standard to treat moderate-to-severe sagging of the face. There are different types of facelifting available, with the deeper lift offering more profound and longer-lasting results, but with more downtime. In selected cases and with experienced clinicians involved, satisfactory results can be achieved using medical-grade facial thread lifting.

This is usually augmented with the use of dermal fillers, anti-wrinkle treatments and skin boosters. In other cases, dermal fillers can be used to give the illusion of facelift, without using the threads. Each treatment comes with a unique set of benefits and drawbacks – speak with your practitioner about which service is best suited to your needs.

Tackle your knee pain

The knee is the most commonly injured joint during sports, especially football. High-impact movement and twisting can cause internal damage to structures like the menisci, anterior cruciate ligament, articular cartilage and other ligaments around the knee. Some of these can be treated without surgery, but if your symptoms persist and are affecting your daily and sporting activities, then it is worth seeing a specialist.

Consider reaching out to Mr Hersh Deo, an orthopaedic knee surgeon based in East Anglia. Hersh works at the James Paget in Gorleston and Spire Norwich Hospital. He specialises in sports knee surgery and uses the latest techniques to help get patients back to sport. For more information, call 01493 452312.

Improve your quality of life

Are you struggling with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and experiencing discomfort and frustration? An untreated and enlarged prostate can impact your quality of life and, in severe cases, can cause painful urinary issues requiring catheterisation. Traditional surgical options, like TURP, may not work for everyone, particularly those with larger prostates or those who’ve had to have a catheter in the past. Luckily, there’s a new high-tech solution that involves using a special holmium laser with advanced “Moses” technology, called “en bloc HoLEP”, which can remove the entire blockage, leading to better urination, shorter hospital stays, and improved bladder control.

Patients can also opt for an innovative technology called “Aquablation” that uses robotically controlled waterjets to remove blockages precisely and maintain sexual function in men with larger prostates. Take charge of your quality of life with groundbreaking and successful treatments by Marc E Laniado at Sage Urology. Call 020 7157 9751 or email for more information.
