Your face reveals much about you -- your age, your emotions, and your attitude. Unfortunately, some people struggle with the signs of aging, with sagging facial skin, deep creases, or a facial contour that is less appealing than it could be.
Various modern surgical techniques allow patients to restore the smooth, firm facial appearance of youth, to repair cosmetic issues such as an overlarge or misshapen nose, protracting ears, or a sagging forehead area, to create a more attractive profile with cheek augmentation or chin implants, or to resolve droopy eyelids or under-eye bags.
People live with what nature gave them – including overlarge or protruding ears. Both men and women, including teenagers, can be embarrassed and feel less confident due to the appearance of the ears. Ear surgery can leave the ears so they lay closer to the head or reduce the size of overlarge ear tissue.
As the years pass, the delicate skin around the eyes is often the first area to begin to droop and sag. This can be a problem easily resolved with eyelid surgery by removal of excess skin and in some cases, fat.
Facial skin is consistently exposed to the elements, including sun, wind, and cold, and is typically the first area to see the signs of aging appear. As the years pass, lines, wrinkles and creases appear, deepen, and the facial tissue begins to sag and droop. A facelift can restore a more youthful, firm look to your face by correcting any areas that make you look old and tired.
Your facial structure is inherited from your ancestors – and may not be as attractive as you want. If your face is out of proportion, lacking enough chin structure, or you have flattened cheekbones, facial implants can create a more defined, sculpted, and attractive appearance. Oftentimes, the patient’s own fat is preferred over implants.
A forehead lift (also called a “brow lift”) can create a dramatic improvement to your overall facial appearance. This procedure reduces the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and creases, raises sagging brows, improves frown lines, and can improve the appearance of sagging that makes your eyes look “hooded.”
Typically called a “nose job,” a rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure to reshape the nose and create a more balanced, appealing facial appearance. This treatment can resolve an overlarge nose, a nose that is too broad, large nostrils, humps, depressions, or a drooping or bulbous nose tip, among other cosmetic concerns.
