As we age, various factors such as sun exposure, smoking, weight gain and loss, daily stress, and, of course, our own genetic makeup, cause our skin to lose its tone and elasticity, resulting in aging of our face and neck. A facelift, or rhytidectomy, is a procedure designed to correct the visible signs of facial aging by removing excess skin and fat, tightening the muscle layer and deep underlying tissues, and redraping the skin of our face and neck. Using the state-of-the-art, most up-to-date, and individualized techniques, facelift surgery can improve the contours of the face and neck and help restore a more youthful, rested, and natural appearance.
Through our lifetime various factors such as aging, sun damage, and smoking, can cause the eyelids to droop, giving us a tired and aged appearance. Cosmetic eyelid lift, or blepharoplasty, is a procedure done to remove fat, excess skin, and muscle from the upper and/or lower eyelids. Our patient-tailored, cosmetic eyelid lift surgery can correct drooping upper lids and puffy dark circles, and “bags” below the eyes, helping restore a more youthful, alert, and rested appearance to your eyes.
Nose Surgery, or rhinoplasty, includes several different procedures which serve both aesthetic and reconstructive purposes. This means that rhinoplasty can not only change the cosmetic appearance, but also improve the function of the nose. Using the most modern techniques and an individualized approach, a rhinoplasty can correct a deviated septum (the dividing wall between the air passages) to improve nasal breathing, improve the profile by removing the dorsal “hump”, narrow the width of the bridge and base of the nose, reshape flaring nostrils, refine the nasal tip, improve the transition between the nose and the upper lip, straighten a crooked nose and correct asymmetry, and decrease the size of the nose to achieve overall balance and harmony with other facial features. Our plastic surgeons have the ability to customize your rhinoplasty procedure according to your functional anatomy and specific cosmetic needs.
Though not typically thought of as a prominent part of the face, ears are very important for facial balance and harmony. Many birth defects, developmental disorders, and traumatic events during life, can cause damage to the cosmetic appearance of the ears, causing stress, discomfort, and lack of self-confidence. Using various state-of-the-art techniques, and a custom-tailored approach, cosmetic ear surgery, or otoplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to correct protruding and unsightly ears by reducing the size of excessively large ears, setting them back closer to the head, recreating the natural folds or contours of the ear, and correcting stretched or torn earlobes, to yield more shapely, natural, and well-proportioned ears.
CHEEK & CHIN AUGMENTATION
Cheek and chin augmentation surgery are surgical procedures designed to reshape the cheeks and chin either by augmentation with an implant, filler material, or your own body’s fatty tissue. Chin implant surgery, also known as mentoplasty or genioplasty, and cheek implant surgery are done alone or in combination with other facial procedures, to help provide harmonious balance to the facial features and dramatically improve your facial profile and projection. Using the latest minimal-scar techniques, our plastic surgeons can augment the shallow cheeks to give emphasis to the midface region, and enhance your weak chin and give definition and prominence to the jawline for maximum aesthetic results.
The eyebrows are an often overlooked, but integral, part of the orbital region and upper part of the face. A brow lift is a highly individualized procedure that is typically performed in conjunction with other facial surgery such as eyelid lift and facelift. A brow lift or forehead lift can reposition low or sagging brows and helps to minimize the creases that develop across the forehead, or those that occur high on the bridge of the nose. This helps bring the eyebrows to a more alert and youthful position, improving the overall appearance of the orbital and upper facial region.
A neck lift, or cervicoplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to improve the visible signs of aging on the neck. Neck lift is comparable to face lift; however, the neck can often be improved with smaller, less invasive procedures, or liposuction alone.
