A blepharoplasty is a procedure to remove excess skin from the upper and lower eyelids. Underlying fatty tissue that produces bagginess in the lower lids is either removed or repositioned. A blepharoplasty also improves the droopiness of the skin of the upper eyelids and gives the eyes a more rested appearance.
Brow lifting alters the appearance of the forehead and brow area by raising the eyebrows, improving frown lines and smoothing out the forehead. This can be done in a variety of ways ranging from using and endoscopic technique with an implant or a less invasive approach by using Botox or Dysport
The appearance of facial aging varies from patient to patient. Some may find that as early as their late twenties they will develop some bulging fat in their lower eyelids, or fine lines at the corners of their eyes. Others may have congenital fat in their neck area to give them a double chin. Facial fat may atrophy causing the skin to sag while others develop a rounder fuller face.
The facelift generally involves treatment of the cheeks, the neck, eyelids, and brow. In addition, aging around the mouth can be a telltale sign that requires individual attention with a lip lift, corner lip lift, and resurfacing. Each of these individual areas can be addressed separately however a harmonious result can be better obtained by combining these procedures into a "complete" facial rejuvenation procedure.
The final result will be revealed some months following the surgery. Most patients are able to resume their normal business activities within two weeks.
Facial Fat Grafting is becoming more and more popular. Most people who think they may need a facelift, might only need facial fat grafting instead. As we age, our faces lose volume. A way to restore that volume is through facial fat grafting. It is done by harvesting fat via liposuction from the abdomen, and then re-injecting it into the face. By doing this, we can replenish, refresh, and renew your youthful contours of your face. This can now also be done under a more local sedation rather than using general anesthesia. It is also great to use as a filler under the lower eyelids.
Neck Lifting is a common procedure most often combined with a face lift. Also known as a turkey neck, this is corrected by using liposuction to empty out the excess fat and then removing the excess skin. The muscles are then tightened and skin is redraped to create a more youthful neck and jawline.
Rhinoplasty surgery changes the appearance and structure of the nose. Typically, a rhinoplasty reduces the size of the nose and changes the shape of the tip. It can also narrow the width of the nostrils and change the angle between the nose and upper lip. Ideal candidates for rhinoplasty surgery are generally patients with a nasal injury or a patient that is unhappy with their nasal structure. After rhinoplasty surgery, patients see a positive change in their facial appearance.
