Many think that they do not have time for plastic surgery, but in today's competitive world those same people must take the time. Your time is now.
Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure designed to address droopy skin of the upper eyelids, bags or puffy lower eyelids. It is one of the most common procedures in cosmetic surgery, and is popular for both men and women. Upper lid surgery generally involves removal of excess skin and occasionally a small amount of fat. Lower lid blepharoplasty involves removal of fat and occasionally a small amount of skin. Some patients need only upper or lower lids corrected. Incisions are rarely visible and recuperation time is minimal.
This procedure addresses prominent ears that protrude too far from the side of the face. Often done at earlier ages, the procedure can be done at any age. If ears that stick out and feel too large for your face embarrass you, you’re not alone. Many people share this self-consciousness about ear size.
For those who wish to make a change, otoplasty is a short, minimally invasive day surgery that can reshape the ears and create a new sense of confidence in one’s appearance. In most cases, the ears can be repositioned using small hidden incisions behind the ears.
A facelift is a surgical procedure that improves the signs of aging in the neck and face. Heredity, gravity, environmental conditions and stress are factors in the loss of youthful facial appearance. While none of us can turn back the hands of time, it is possible to improve visible signs of aging in the face and neck area. A facelift is often done in conjunction with brow lift and eye surgery. It can address common problem areas, including sagging of the mouth, deep creases in the lower lids, fat that has fallen, loss of skin tone, jowls and double chin.
Unlike the non-invasive treatments for facial rejuvenation, a facelift is performed at a surgical facility and requires a period of recuperation. There are some results in a facelift which cannot be achieved by non-surgical rejuvenation; however, non-surgical intervention will help delay the time at which facelift may become an option.
Years of smiling and frowning can etch lines and ridges across the forehead, the bridge of the nose and between the eyes, which can create an older, stern, tired and even angry appearance. A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, is performed to raise the eyebrows into a more youthful position. The procedure is used to correct frown lines, and the vertical creases that develop between the eyebrows. Sagging brows that droop over the upper eye lids can also be improved. The brow lift is often performed in conjunction with an upper/lower eyelid tuck, face lift and skin resurfacing to revitalize overall facial appearance.
Nonsurgical modalities including laser and Botox can also provide elevation of the sagging brow.
A nose that doesn’t seem to “go with” the rest of the face can be a source of embarrassment and self-consciousness. In these cases, when the size or shape of the nose is out of proportion with the rest of the face, rhinoplasty can enhance facial harmony. Surgery can change nose size relative to facial balance. It can address the width of the bridge, the size and position of the nostrils, and restore nasal symmetry. Rhinoplasty can surgically correct the top of the nose when it is too large, bulbous, drooping, upturned or hooked. Functionally, the procedure is also used to correct a deviated septum. When breathing is impaired by an obstructed airway, rhinoplasty can adjust the nasal structure to provide better alignment and allow better airflow. Rhinoplasty can be done in conjunction with chin implant.
