Micro pigmentation (cosmetic tattoo)

Micro pigmentation, also known as cosmetic tattoo, is a procedure used to permanently enhance facial features such as the eyes and lips by acting as permanent make-up. This is especially beneficial for individuals who are allergic to most make-up. Micro pigmentation can also be used to repigment the areola and nipple after breast surgery or to disguise scars, birth marks, burns, vitiligo, alopecia, and halo nevi.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage

Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) massage can reduce swelling and is especially beneficial to patients after surgery. MLD massage involves a gentle, rhythmic, pumping action. By moving only the skin, the MLD massage stimulates the lymph system by promoting the flow and drainage of the lymph fluid.

Due to the light, rhythmic application of touch in MLD massage, it can also be used effectively to relieve headaches, migraines, sinusitis, bruises, sprains, arthritis, and many other conditions. Contact the Melbourne Institute of Plastic Surgery today for more information.

Imaging and Clinical Photography

To assist in caring for our patients, we offer the latest in digital imaging facilities.

Body Mapping

At the Melbourne Institute of Plastic Surgery, we offer body mapping, ideal for locating and tracking pigmented lesions on a patient’s body. This state-of-the-art feature of our computer system works by linking single or multiple close-up images to precise points on a body sector photo.

Visualising New Images

This fascinating computer system allows patients to view themselves on a high-resolution color monitor while the doctor or assistant redesigns their images electronically. Once the patient’s image is captured and displayed on the screen, the image can then be altered with the computer and in a few minutes the patient can see before and after pictures of themselves. This technique is a useful consultation tool and helps patients understand what can, and cannot, be done by the surgeon.

Note: These electronic images are for indicative purposes only and do not represent a precise post-operative view.
