Facial Cosmetic Surgery
Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)
Droopy eyelids can make you look older and can also impair vision. Blepharoplasty corrects these problems and also removes puffiness and bags under the eyes that make you look worn and tired. The procedure involves the removal of fat and excess skin from the upper and lower eyelids, and can be done alone or in conjunction with other facial surgery procedures such as a facelift or brow lift.
As you age the skin of the brow and the forehead loses its elasticity resulting in frown lines, wrinkles and heaviness of the eyebrows. Sun, wind and pull of gravity hastens this process. This gives a tired and aged look. Forehead and Brow lift is often done in conjunction with blepharoplasty to improve brow positioning, minimize frown lines and reduce forehead wrinkles.
Genioplasty (Chin Surgery)
A well defined chin helps give balance to the face and creates a major part of one's profile. Chin Surgery increases or reduces the length and projection of the chin. Surgeons, who specialize in rhinoplasty, or surgery of the nose, are often the first to suggest that changes in chin size or shape may enhance a profile as much as rhinoplasty. It is common for the facial plastic surgeon to recommend chin surgery in addition to nose surgery when the surgeon sees that chin augmentation is necessary to achieve facial balance and harmony.
Rhinoplasty (Nose Surgery)
Surgery of the nose is one of the most prevalent cosmetic surgeries that are being done to improve appearance. Because the nose is the most defining characteristic of the face, a slight alteration can greatly improve one's appearance. Rhinoplasty can reduce or increase the size of your nose, change the shape of the tip or the bridge, narrow the span of the nostrils, or change the angle between your nose and your upper lip. Rhinoplasty is also performed to correct distorted nose due to injury or to improve breathing due to deviated nasal septum.
Cheekbone Implants (Malar Augmentation)
Creates the appearance of higher, more prominent cheekbones and better facial balance.
Aging of the face is a natural inevitable process that occurs due loss of elasticity of the skin and tonicity of the muscles. Personal habits, prolonged exposure to sunlight and heredity may accelerate this process. As the years go by, the skin begins to loosen on the face and neck. Crow's feet appear at the corners of the eyes. Fine forehead lines become creases and then, gradually, deeper folds. The jaw line softens into jowls, and beneath the chin, another chin or vertical folds appear at the front of the neck. Rhytidectomy provides a more youthful appearance by tightening facial skin, muscles and removing excess skin.
Reshapes the upper and lower lip to give a more aesthetic or youthful appearance. Augmentation of the lips is accomplished using various materials that help "plump" the lips, creating fullness and decreasing vertical lines.
Ear Surgery (Otoplasty)
Prominent protruding ears can lead to self consciousness and affect your child psychologically and physically. Otoplasty is usually done to set prominent ears back closer to the head. Otoplasty can also be used to reshapen ears, reduce size and make them more symmetrical.
This surgery can be performed at any age after the ears have reached full size, usually around five to six years of age. The earlier this surgery is performed the better since the cartilage is extremely pliable at a younger age, thereby permitting greater ease of shaping. Also your child will experience psychological benefits from the cosmetic improvement.
Facial and Neck Liposuction
Can help sculpt the face by removing excess fat. Neck liposuction is often performed in conjunction with procedures such as genioplasty and corrective jaw surgery.
