Dr Des Fernandes
I am a plastic surgeon concentrating on surgery for the face, head and neck including noses and ears. I have researched how to improve the rejuvenation of the face and started research on suture suspension for lifting the midface in 1994. This lead to the so-called “scarless” face-lift, brow and neck lift. This is the surgery that was recognized by Insignia Magazine who rated me sixth most important plastic surgeon in the world. I also pioneered the use of skin needling to enhance penetration of topically applied cosmeceuticals and to promote the tightening and smoothing of scarred or wrinkled skin. Skin needling is now considered by authorities to be the most significant recent advance in the treatment of burn scars. In 1982 I started research on the effects of topical vitamin A and antioxidants and eventually formulated the Environ Skin Care range which is now used by celebrities around the world and is exported to over 60 different countries.
