How much milk should a pregnant woman drink per day?

pregnant_woman_drinking_milk1

Here’s a tip from our Dietitian, Cynthia Bou Khalil.

The goal is to get 1,000 milligrams of calcium daily. 3 to 4 servings of dairy per day will allow you to meet this requirement.

Calcium-rich dairy foods include milk (300mg / 1 cup), yogurt (300 mg / 1 cup), and cheese (200 mg per 30g of yellow cheese).

For those women who face difficulties in drinking milk, there are many calcium-fortified juices containing the same amount of calcium per cup as milk.

Consult your dietitian in order to attain a complete plan for each trimester of your pregnancy.

Fat Filling – The Rolls Royce of Fillers

Fat-Filling_01_02

Fat Filling is the ultimate solution for treating all areas where more volume is needed, as well as plumbing wrinkles and folds. Hyaluronic acid fillers can be used for the same purposes; however, when a longer lasting filling is needed, fat is the solution. The treatment is done using the patient’s own fat, a fact that has many advantages:

  • No possibility of having an allergic reaction.
  • No possibility of rejection.
  • More cost effective.
  • Long lasting, semi-permanent.

It consists of performing liposuction for areas with extra fat, filtering the collected fat, and re-injecting the purified fat in the volume-deficient areas in the face.

The result is a full volume rejuvenation of the whole face, restoring its youth and regaining a harmonious and healthy appearance.

Down time is 4 or 5 days of swelling and mild bruising. The patient can resume his/her normal lifestyle by the end of the 5th Patients are highly satisfied as their self-esteem is greatly improved. Fat Filling is considered the Rolls Royce of fillers.

How to get rid of those sagging baggy looking eyes?

Eyelid-Cosmetic-Surgery-(Blepharoplasty)_01_02

Exhausted purchasing expensive products to get rid of those sagging baggy looking eyes but with no good results?
Here at Dr. Kayle’s Aesthetic Clinic, we have the the right solution for you with long lasting results, Eyelid Cosmetic Surgery.

What is an Eyelid Surgery?

Eyelid surgery can remove excess fat and skin from the upper and lower eyelids, features that make you look older.

The surgery

Eyelid surgery can be performed under local or general anesthesia. The surgeon makes incisions following the natural lines of your eyelids: in the creases of your upper lids, and just below the lashes in the lower lids. The incisions may extend into the crow’s feet or laugh lines at the outer corners of your eyes. Working through these incisions, the surgeon removes excess fat, and often trims sagging skin and muscle. The incisions are then closed with very fine sutures.

Result

The positive results of your eyelid surgery – the more alert and youthful look – will last for years.

Restore the beauty of youth with a face lift from a premiere Dubai clinic

facelift_04_02

As people age, the effects of gravity, exposure to the sun, smoking, and the stresses of daily life can be seen on their faces. This is a natural physiological change brought about by aging. As one grows older, the body naturally decreases the amount of oil it produces, causing the skin to dry and become more wrinkled. The body also loses the fat within the inner layers of the skin, which causes it to become saggy.

However, there are other factors that are also at play in the deterioration of skin quality. Extended exposure to the sun can also cause the skin to wrinkle, as UV light breaks down the collagen and the elastin fibers that reside deep within the recesses of the skin that are responsible for its elasticity and resilience.

WHAT DOES A FACE LIFT DO?

A face lift “sets back the clock”, improving the most visible signs of aging by adjusting volume problems, tightening underlying structures, and re-draping the skin of your face and neck.

The conventional method for this procedure typically involves physically lifting the skin off the face so that skin as well as the underlying facial tissues can be repositioned over the face for a smoother, tauter look. Not only does the procedure help smooth facial skin, but it can also remove saggy jowls and loose layers underneath the jawline area.

How is the procedure performed?

A face lift in Dubai is often performed in a hospital under general anaesthesia. This puts patients in a state of unconsciousness, which lasts until a few hours after the procedure. In itself, the procedure may stretch for several hours. Depending on the prescription of Dr Kayle, a patient may be allowed to go home on the same day or recommended to stay in the hospital for a night.

The procedure can make you look younger and fresher, and it will enhance your self-esteem. The effects are also long-lasting. Years later, you can still enjoy the same ageless look. If you want to combine it with other cosmetic surgeries such as an eyebrow lift or a lip filler procedure, you can also do so.

Most people use their hair to cover up prominent ears, but is that good enough?

Ear Surgery_03 copy

Prominent Ears are a very noticeable feature of the face, most people use their hair to cover it up, but  is that good enough?
At Dr. Kayle Aesthetic Clinic, we offer a more prominent solution to address this problem.

What is an Ear Surgery?

Ear surgery, or Otoplasty, is usually done to set perminant ears back closer to the head.
For the most part, the operation is done on children between the ages of four and 14. The earlier the surgery, the less teasing the child will have to endure. Ear surgery can be done on adults as well.

The Surgery

Ear surgery is usually performed as an outpatient procedure in a hospital under general anesthesia. It usually takes about two hours. The surgeon makes a small incision in the back of the ear to expose the ear cartilage and bend it back toward the head.

The Result

In conclusion most patients, young and old alike, are thrilled with the results of ear surgery.

Eyebrow Lift: Surgical or Non-Surgical?

brow-lift

Drooping eyebrows make you look exhausted even when you’re not?

Do not worry. At Dr. Kayle Aesthetic Clinic, we have both Surgical & Non Surgical procedures to address this problem. Here is some more information about both:

Eyebrow Lift – Surgical Procedure

It consists of making a 1.5 cm wound in the scalp above the hairline, through which, the underlying structure of the eyebrow is reached, pulled up, and fixed to the periosteal tissue through that wound.
This operation takes 1.5 hours and can be done using local or general anesthesia. It is associated with mild bruising and swelling, and the patient can resume normal daily activities within 1 week.
This is indicated for patients requesting longer lasting more effective results.

Eyebrow Lift – Non-Surgical Procedures

As the face ages, we suffer from dropping of the eyebrows. This will make the excess upper eyelid skin even more noticeable. Depending on the degree and the age of the patient, non-surgical eyebrow lifting can usually be achieved through one or more of the following procedures:

- Anti-Wrinkle Treatment treatment which will help counteract the effect of a muscle known as orbicularis oculi (a circular muscle around the eye). Thus, lifting the eyebrow.
- Fillers to the upper eyelid area. This will help to lift the eyebrow and to give it more volume and better definition.
- Thread lifting of the eyebrow through resorbable sutures.
- Skin tightening devices applied to the upper eyelid and forehead area such as Sublative Rejuvenation and Sublime Rejuvenation treatments.

Most commonly, combining 2 or more of the above treatments would give the best results

Liposuction Vs. Liposculpture

Liposuction_06_01

Liposuction is a procedure that can help sculpt the body by removing unwanted fat from specific areas, including the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, cheeks and neck. Liposuction can remove stubborn areas of fat that don’t respond to traditional weight-loss methods.

Whereas, Liposculpture is used for smaller amounts of fat and when finer cannulae are used such procedures are highly appreciated by the patients as they help improve a lot on their self-esteem

Liposuction & Liposculpture may be performed in the clinic or in a hospital depending on the amount of unwanted fat. The procedure is done through a 1mm tiny incision and upto 5 litres of fat can be removed in one session.

Laser Skin Resurfacing – What You Need to Know

Skin-Laser-Resurfacing_03_04

In laser resurfacing, sometimes called “laser peel”, laser is used to remove areas of damaged or wrinkled skin, layer by layer. The procedure is most commonly used to minimize the appearance of fine lines, especially around the mouth and the eyes.

First, the outer layers of damaged skin are stripped away. Then, as new cells form during the healing process, a smoother, tighter, younger – looking skin surface appears.

Individuals who have taken accutane in the past 12 months or are prone to abnormal (keloid-like) scarring or those with active skin infections on the treatment area may not be appropriate candidates for this procedure.

Before the procedure, and depending on your condition, your surgeon may recommend that you begin a pre-treatment plan to prepare the skin for resurfacing. Your surgeon may also instruct you to follow a specific maintenance regimen for long-term care of the skin to maximize the benefits of the procedure.

Laser resurfacing is performed in your surgeon’s office-based facility under local anesthesia. It usually takes anywhere from a few minutes to 1 hour, depending on how large of an area is involved.

After the procedure, you are likely to experience some mild swelling and discomfort after laser resurfacing. However, this can be controlled with ice packs and medications prescribed by your surgeon. A thin layer of ointment will be applied to the skin.

Redness may persist from 2 days to several weeks, depending on the depth of the peel. After about two weeks or so, most patients can safely apply makeup to conceal this temporary color change.

In the months following treatment, using sun protection regularly will help to maintain your results.

Laser skin resurfacing is an important contributor to patient’s increased self-esteem as it plays an important role in setting back the clock
