Sheree’s Face-lift Cosmetic Surgery Holiday

Sheree’s face-lift cosmetic surgery holiday was a leap of faith. The idea of a face-lift isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. A common concern about cosmetic surgery is that it will change the facial features that define you. That plastic surgery will make you look plastic and fake.

Sheree had all of these concerns, but she took the leap with Gorgeous Getaways and booked her face-lift with Dr Jalil in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Sheree’s Story

I was always open minded about plastic surgery but the idea of a face lift use to scare me as I used to think that I would hate if a surgeon changed my features. Over the last ten years I have seen Dr Jalil twice on NZ TV and I read about him in magazines. I was very impressed with his work, experience and how humble he came across on several programs.

A More Affordable Option

When I turned 50, I noticed the aging signs on my neck and eye lids. I decided to be brave and treat myself to a neck and eye lift and some liposuction. I knew I could not afford it in NZ and I trusted what I knew about Dr Jalil.

I booked myself in just before the new year and decided to go to Malaysia on my own, just to have proper rest and focus on healing and I was lucky, my family respected my decision of doing this on my own. I was totally impressed by the way I was met and the service I got from the moment I arrived in KL till the moment I left.

Client Service at it’s Best

Kumari, the PR nurse who looked after me was wonderful, she knows what she’s doing and she gives outstanding care. The nurses were outstanding and Dr Jalil’s work on my face is so natural and it took at least 10 years off my face. He is an excellent surgeon and I’m thrilled with my results. After my operation, I rested well for a good week and did so little then slowly during the second week, I started going out and experiencing Malaysia. I loved my experience and how Gorgeous Getaways looked after me.

The Results

It’s now exactly one month since I had my mini face lift and I’m back at work looking younger and enjoying it. My skin feels a bit tight but the doctor told me that, this feeling will last about 3 months before it all goes back to normal.

I highly recommend Dr Jalil and his team, I found them to be professional, experienced and they delivered exactly what I wanted. I had a very positive experience and I plan to go back to do some dental work. I’m glad I went on my own, it worked for me,I love my own company and I focused only on my healing rather than being touristic.

Taqtik Dental teeth whitening

Professional Whitening VS Over the Counter Products

Living with yellowed or stained teeth means forever hiding from the camera. You learn to smile with your mouth closed, or avoid being photographed altogether! It’s time to compare professional whitening VS over the counter products.

Over the counter products

If you have discolored teeth you’ve probably tried all the over the counter products available. Teeth whitening strips and whitening gels from the pharmacy deliver limited results that won’t last for long.

A simple and affordable alternative to over the counter products is visiting a dentist for teeth whitening treatment. 

Professional teeth whitening treatment

Professional teeth whitening treatment is easy and effective! It just takes two simple and painless steps for teeth to be bleached and smiles to be restored back to dazzling.

1.  Your dentist applies a whitening gel to your teeth.

2. A laser light is used to accelerate the bleaching process.

The treatment generally takes 30 – 60 minutes and the results last about four months. The whitening treatment is painless and affordable.

Quick Facts about Dental Whitening

  • Last longer than over the counter products
  • Only 30 – 60 minutes for treatment
  • Results last for around four months
  • Painless and affordable

Breast Augmentations and holiday destinations

Breast Augmentations in Phuket

Woman travelling to Phuket for Breast Augmentations enjoy fuller breasts and an idyllic holiday destination!

Breast Augmentation Plastic Surgery

A Breast Augmentation is a surgical procedure that increases the size of your breasts. The procedure gives breasts a fuller and more defined shape. During the procedure your surgeon inserts the breast implant behind the breast tissue through small incisions strategically placed to leave minimal scarring.

The Benefits of a Breast Augmentation

The Breast Augmentation procedure is popular with woman because it provides a major boost to self-confidence. Many Breast Augmentation patients have experienced tissue loss from pregnancy and breast feeding and want to gain back their pre baby femininity. Mothers who have spent years focusing on children find this procedure an immensely satisfying way to self indulge and to enjoy a well-deserved holiday.

Is a Breast Augmentation right for you?

When considering this procedure you should do your research and have a realistic expectation of results. If you’re in good physical and mental health then this procedure can work for you. Remember that although a Breast Augmentation will enhance your figure, it will not completely change it.

The surgical procedure

Patients are put under general anesthetic and require an overnight stay. Surgeons make an incision based on their recommendation as well as your preferences. Implants are placed beneath breast tissue. There are a variety of different sites that the incision is made.

  • Under the breast (infra-mammary). This incision is made in the crease between your breast and chest. Your surgeon will make the incision and a pocket for the implant to slide up and center behind the nipple. Infra-mammary incisions reduce visible scarring.
  • Around the nipple (peri-areolar). This incision is made between the dark areola and the breast skin around it. Your surgeon will make the incision and a pocked for the implant slide through and centre behind the nipple. Peri-areolar incisions reduce visible scarring.
  • In the arm pit (trans-axillary incision). This incision is made in the folds of your armpit tissue. Your surgeon will make the incision and a channel up to the breast for the implant to be positioned behind the nipple. Trans-axillary incisions place the scar completely away from the breast.
  • In the naval area (trans-umbilical). This incision is made on the rim of the navel. Your surgeon will make the incision and a tunnel through the subcutaneous fat layer, up to the breast for the implant to be placed behind the naval. Trans-umbilical incisions place the scar completely away from the breast.

Choosing your Breast Implant:

  • Silicone implants. This implant is the most popular choice among Breast Augmentation patients. Silicone has been used for implants for decades because it’s natural feel and appears in all sorts of daily beauty products like lipstick or anti-aging creams.
  • Saline Implants.  This material is made of a weak salt solution, which is similar to our own body fluids. Saline implants can fit through a smaller incision but can ripple and feel ‘squishy’
  • Shape and Size. You will discuss your choice in shape and size with your surgeon pre surgery. You can specify the shape, size and consistency of your implant depending on your desired result.

Taqtik Dental toothache

Tooth decay can cause excruciating pain and a root canal may be the only solution.

Signs that your tooth could be infected:

Have you experienced shooting pain in your mouth when eating or drinking? Do your gums look swollen and infected? These symptoms may signal substantial tooth decay that has reached a nerve in your tooth. Tooth decay can cause excruciating pain, and a root canal may be the only solution. It is the best treatment to cure the infection and help you save your tooth.

What happens during the root canal procedure?

The much maligned root canal is a blessing when tooth decay causes an infection in the nerve of a tooth, causing excruciating pain. A root canal is generally performed by an endodontist who has specialized training in treatments that focus on the nerves or pulp that are in teeth.

Before the root canal treatment begins, the patient is given local anesthesia to numb the pain. Once the mouth and jaw are numb, the endodontist will drill the decayed tooth removing the pulp while leaving as much of the tooth intact as possible. The nerve canal is cleaned out and then packed with synthetic material. The tooth is refilled and the treatment is complete.

Tooth decay can cause excruciating pain, and a root canal may be the only solution, but some patients find that the tooth has suffered too much decay to be saved. Your dentist will create a plan of treatment for you to determine what is best for your long term dental health.

Quick Facts about Root Canals

  • Specialized treatment
  • Involves damage to tooth nerve
  • May require 2 visits over 2-5 days
  • Tooth may or may not be saved

Taqtik hair transplant
CategoriesAnti-Aging,  Cosmetic Surgery

Bring back your hairline and get lasting results with Hair Transplant Surgery.

Men no longer have to live with receding hairlines or bald patches. They are choosing to bring back the hairline and get lasting results with Hair Transplant Surgery.

The Transplant involved removes hair follicles from a donor site, to a balding part of the head. It even works on eyebrows and sideburns.

FAQS: After Hair Transplant Surgery for Men

Here are some common questions and answers about recovering from hair transplant surgery. These will to help you recover quickly and completely. Of course, be sure to follow the advice of your doctor!

Can I drive after my hair transplant surgery?

Do not drive immediately after surgery. It is best to have someone drive you after your procedure as you may not be completely alert and ready to operate a vehicle or engage in other complicated or dangerous activities. Give yourself a few days to recover before getting behind the wheel of a car.

Will I have a bandage on my head after the procedure?

You will most likely have to wear a compression bandage on your head for several days. If so, make sure to keep it in place, clean and dry. Your doctor will give you instructions about when the bandage can be removed and whether you need to return to the clinic to have stitches removed or a check up to make sure you are healing properly.

Will the surgery interfere with my ability to get a good night’s sleep?

For a few days following the surgery, try sleeping in a semi-upright position. Use a few pillows or a wedge pillow to elevate your head. Sleeping in this position will keep the bandage in place and allow the grafts more time to take root without being dislodged.

How will my scalp feel after the treatment?

Immediately after the transplant surgery, your scalp may feel sore, slightly swollen, and uncomfortable. It is important to refrain from touching or picking at the hair grafts even if your scalp is itchy or sore. You have to give your hair grafts time to take root so avoid rubbing or touching your scalp.

How soon after the surgery can I wash my hair?

Your doctor will let you know when you can wash your hair either by hand or in the shower. Wait the required period of time after surgery before shampooing your scalp and hair. Keeping your scalp clean will help the healing process, remove dead skin, and encourage new hair growth.

What restrictions are there on my activities after the transplant procedure?

Your doctor will give you instructions about what you can and should not do immediately after the procedure. Refrain from drinking alcohol and smoking per your doctor’s instructions. Smoking restricts the flow of blood to the hair follicles and can slow the healing process.

Resume normal activity according to your doctor’s instructions. Refrain from sports and exercise for at least one week following surgery. Discuss your normal activities with your doctor so that you understand when you can return to your usual lifestyle.

Can I go outside after the transplant surgery?

Make sure to wear a hat when going out in the sun especially if your scalp is swollen, red or tender. You are at increased risk of sunburn if you expose your head to the sun too soon after surgery. Take your time and do not rush the healing process.

What should I do if I experience any medical problems after the procedure?

Contact your surgeon immediately if you experience bleeding, infection, severe pain, or any other complications after your surgery. If you have any questions about your recovery, contact your surgeon or medical doctor

How long will it take for my transplanted hair to start growing?

It may take between three to six months for new hair to grow as the hair grafts take root. With some care and patience on your part, you can ensure that your hair transplant is a success. Bring back the hairline and get lasting results with Hair Transplant Surgery.

Aftercare and recovery for men post hair transplant.

Recovering from a Hair Transplant

Aftercare and recovery for men post hair transplant directly effects the quality of results. Following transplant surgery, your scalp will most likely be sore and red. You may want to take leave from work to ensure a full recovery.


You may be described medications to ease discomfort and encourage recovery such as:
– Pain medication
– Antibiotics to reduce the risk of infection
– Anti-inflammatory medication to reduce swelling

Be sure to follow the directions for taking the medication properly to ensure its
effectiveness and help you to heal quickly.
Doctors may also prescribe hair growth medications like Minoxidil (more commonly known as Rogaine or Finasteride). These medicines help to slow or stop hair loss to the untreated areas of your scalp.
Transplanted hair tends to fall out two or three weeks after the transplant which is
completely normal. New hair growth pushes the transplanted hair out of the way. Regular hair growth should be noticeable between three to six months after surgery. The full results of your transplant should be visible within six to twelve months after treatment.

What happens when post hair transplant aftercare and recovery has finished

Hair that replaces the transplanted hair should continue to grow and fill in the spaces on your scalp. The density of the new hair growth will depend on factors that include:
– Whether your hair is curly or straight
– How loose your scalp is
– The density of the hair follicles that have been transplanted
It is important to discuss the expected outcome with your surgeon and develop realistic expectations.
To reduce the unpleasant after effects of the surgery follow your doctor’s
recommendations closely. Notify your healthcare provider if you experience any signs of infection or other health problems.

Risks and Complications

Hair transplants are generally low risk procedures, but like all invasive treatments, there are possible risks and complications.
Problems are unlikely to occur, but your surgeon will discuss individual risks to you. You need to contact your doctor if any of the following occur:
– Bleeding or infection
– Swelling of the scalp
– A scab or crust that forms on the areas of the scalp where hair was removed or
– Numbness or lack of sensation on the treated areas of the scalp
– Persistent itching especially during the healing process
– Inflammation or infection of the hair follicles also called folliculitis
– Sudden but typically temporary loss of the transplanted hair referred to as
shock loss
– Random tufts of hair that look out of place
If you experience any of these reactions, be sure to contact your surgeon or
medical doctor immediately.

This information does not take the place of medical advice given by your doctor
and is for general informational purposes only. Discuss the specific
details of your treatment and aftercare and recovery for men post hair transplant with your physician.

Eye opening Blepharoplasty Before and After pictures

Ron’s eye opening Belpharoplasty Before and After pictures show the difference that cosmetic surgery has made to the bags under his eyes.

Like many of us, Ron found that the most apparent sign of his ageing process were wrinkles, bags and dark rings around the eyes. As the face ages, the skin loses elasticity and extra skin and fatty tissue forms. This can make your face look far older and more tired than you actually are, or even feel!

An Eye Lift or Blepharoplasty can give you back the taunt looking skin of your youth, open up your eyes and remove puffy bags. The procedure helps to make the eyes appear brighter and larger.

During the Eye Lift, the surgeon marks the incision sites that follow the lines and creases of the upper and lower eyelids. Unwanted fat and excess skin is removed and the incision is closed with dissolving sutures.

After surgery patients can expect to have their eyes lubricated and covered with bandages. Pain relief will be administered at the hospital and antibiotics will be prescribed by the surgeon to prevent infection.

Sick of the bags under his eyes making him look permanently exhausted, Ron traveled with Gorgeous Getaways to Kuala Lumpur for an Eye Lift with Dr Jalil at Beverly Wilshire Medical Center. Back home everyone is noticing the difference, which is clear from Ron’s eye opening Blepharoplasty Before and After pics.
