    How does this compare to other treatments?

    IINFINI's 2 handpieces allow for the delivery of the RF energy to be precisely targeted and controlled into a specific layer of the dermis up to 3.5 mm in depth.

    INFINI MFR
    Micro needling fractional radio frequency (MFR) has fine needles which puncture the skin to deliver the radio frequency to the deeper levels of the dermis, providing a three dimensional delivery of energy maximizing skin volumization while dramatically tightening and rejuvenating the skin

    INFINI SFR
    Superficial fractional radio frequency (SFR) employs a minimally invasive delivery of radiofrequency to the epidermis and dermis for resurfacing the skin and stimulating the production of collagen for a more toned and refined skin.

    What can you do for my ‘love-handles’ and gut?

    Dr

    A: Liposuction is extremely effective for the love handle area, the abdomen and
    sometimes, the chest. Men store fat in different areas to women and just like women,
    find these isolated pockets of fat hard to shift with diet and exercise. Liposuction, or the
    removal of fat cells, is ideal in such areas to restore or even
    improve a man’s physique. The major difference in liposculpture for men and women is that in men the goal is to expose muscularity,whereas in women the emphasis is on creating
    sensuous curves.

    My Facelift really refreshed my outlook

    Trish, one of our theatre nurses, shares her
    successful facelift experience with you

    While non-invasive methods for facial rejuvenation can go a
    long way in bridging the path to surgery, the results achieved in
    a surgical facelift are superior in countering skin laxity, reducing
    wrinkles and folds, and improving a tired-looking appearance

    Yet the decision to undergo surgery can be a big one, and natural-looking results are a common concern for people considering a facelift.Sydney plastic surgeon Dr Darryl Hodgkinson has more than 30 years’ experience in facelift surgery. With a philosophy to leave his facelift patients looking and feeling like themselves – only more youthful, refreshed
    and vibrant – Dr Hodgkinson is skilled in a variety of facelift
    techniques and takes an individualised approach with each patient.One patient, Trish Riley,
    who has worked with DrHodgkinson as a theatre sister for the past six years,has recently undergone a facelift procedure by him
    “Two months after my facelift, I know it’s one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself”

    ‘It has been two months since surgery,’ says Trish. ‘I’m very pleased with the results and the
    best thing is, people don’t realise I’ve had it done. They look at me and say, “You’re
    looking great” but can never pick what haschanged.’

    the chin. Dr Hodgkinson typically combines a deep plane facelift and neck lift to create a more youthfullooking neck and jaw contour. It is important that the skin is re-draped
    gently across the newly sculpted tissue, to avoid any tension
    post-operatively. Facelift patients generally experience swelling, mild
    bruising and some numbness,but Trish found her recovery to be more comfortable and less
    debilitating than she expected.

    Went back to work ten days
    after the operation

    ‘I needed paracetamol in the first five days following the operation. The first 24-48 hours were very quiet; I couldn’t move my mouth much and there was some discomfort and tension around my cheeks,’ she explains. ‘I went back to work 10 days after my operation.I was a bit swollen but only had one minor bruise on my chin.’

    As part of the ageing process, fat pockets in the mid- cheeks tend to lose volume and drop, leading to sagging jowls. This is accompanied by shrinking of the facial skeleton and a weakening in the skin’s structure, contributing to wrinkles,deeps folds and a loss of skin
    resilience. A facelift is a surgical procedure that elevates and re-drapes the facial skin and
    its underlying structure to eliminate this drooping effect.
    Appearance rejuvenated
    In Trish’s case, she simply wanted her appearance rejuvenated, something she believes is an
    important career move. ‘I felt like I was beginning to look more and more like my mother – not
    that there’s anything wrong withthat! I just felt my appearance needed refreshing,’ she says. ‘I think keeping up appearances is important in order to stay in the workforce for longer.,

    “I just felt my appearance needed refreshing; I think keeping up appearances is important in orderto stay in the workforce for longer.”

    In preparing for her surgery, Trish had consultations with Dr Hodgkinson to address her areas
    of concern, establish her expectations and discuss what results were possible.

    Recovery more comfortable than Trish expected
    During a face lifting procedure, incisions are made along the hairline, or in the crease in front of and behind the ear, and under

    Now two months after her operation, Trish is pleased with the results and happy with her decision to undergo surgery: ‘My jaw line is
    more defined and the wrinkles in my neck are reduced. Every day, as the swelling goes down, the results keep getting better.’
    A holistic approach
    Dr Hodgkinson takes a holistic approach when it comes to facial rejuvenation and often combines procedures such as a facelift, brow lift, neck lift, eyelid surgery, skin
    resurfacing and cheek or chin implants to create the best results for facial harmony and balance. ‘Because I’d worked with Dr Hodgkinson for six years, I was confident in his expertise in creating a natural-looking facelift,’ Trish explains. ‘I may not have considered
    surgery if I hadn’t worked in the industry, but I’m so happy I did because it’s one of the best thingsI’ve ever done for myself.’
