Depressor Muscle Release (DAO surgery)

The releasing of the depressor muscle is used to lift the corners of the mouth. 

Dr Pouria Moradi can perform DAO surgery to release the depressor muscle. The depressor muscle while frowning can be seen pulling the corner of the lips down.

The procedure involves removing skin from above the corners of the mouth and resuturing the skin in a way that pulls the corners of the mouth upwards. This works to improve the shape of the lips and lower face.

DAO surgery can leave visible scars and is usually recommended for older patients.

Hybrid Fat Grafting

For women looking for an increase in breast size, Dr Pouria Moradi can combine a fat graft (fat transfer) with breast implants. The use of a fat transfer can improve the natural aesthetics than just using an implant alone.

This hybrid surgery is commonly used for women who want an increase in breast size, but cannot achieve the desired result by fat transfer alone. Therefore, an implant will accompany.

A more natural look can be achieved since the fat transfer can be strategically placed surrounding the implant to offer natural contours and feel.

Benefits of hybrid fat grafting

  • Offers a more natural appearance
  • Better contouring due to softening of implant edges by fat transfer
  • Improved texture and feeling

Reverse Tummy Tuck

This is the reverse version of the tummy tuck, meaning it is useful when there is excess loose skin and laxity in the upper abdomen and not the lower. It is best combined with the breast lift or reduction surgery as you can use the breast crease to access the upper abdomen.

The scars associated with the reverse tummy tuck and breast lift are located at the breast crease, which means even a two-piece bikini hides them.

Benefits of a reverse tummy tuck

  • Removal of excess upper abdominal fat
  • Tightening of the upper abdomen
  • Easily combined with a breast lift or reduction surgery

Split Ear Repair

Dr Pouria Moradi can also perform a repair to a split ear lobe. This involves trimming the skin which has healed within the split and suturing the two sides back together. This provides a more pleasing appearance.

This surgery can easily be added in with another larger operation.

You cannot re-pierce your ear for at least three months following the ear lobe repair.
