In time, gravity, sun exposure and the stresses of daily life take their toll on our face. Deep creases appear beside the mouth, the jaw line slackens, and folds and fat deposits appear on the neck. Facelifts counteract these problems by removing fat and tightening skin and muscles, giving your face a fresher, more youthful look. Facelifts are often combined with other procedures including brow lift, eyelid surgery and laser skin resurfacing treatments.
Brow lifts can address one of the earliest signs of aging – the drooping and sagging of the eyebrow. The technique ranges from a full foreheadplasty, designed to elevate the entire forehead, to a temporal brow lift, meant to correct drooping of the outer half of the brow. These procedures are done under local anesthesia with sedation, and are often combined with eyelid surgery, laser skin tightening and skin resurfacing.
Blepharoplasty can rejuvenate puffy, sagging or tired-looking eyes by removing excess fat, skin and muscle from the upper and lower eyelids. Blepharoplasty is often combined with laser skin resurfacing procedures, facial volume restoration and BOTOX Cosmetic® treatments. The combination raises the eyebrows and reduces the appearance of wrinkles, crow’s feet or dark circles under the eyes.
A rhinoplasty is a surgery designed to alter the form and function of the nose. The nose is the most prominent feature of the face and is critical to overall facial aesthetics. A rhinoplasty procedure alters the form and function of the nose. This is done by altering the shape and size of the bony and cartilaginous components of the nose.
Any healthy individual with concerns about the appearance of their nose is a candidate for rhinoplasty surgery. Specific concerns that can be addressed with a rhinoplasty include:
- A wide nose
- A narrow nose
- A hump or bump on the dorsum of the nose
- Thick or bulbous or boxy nasal tips
- Excess nasal projection
- Insufficient nasal projection
- Upturned or downturned nasal tips
- Large or disproportionate noses
- Crooked noses
- Residual issues from previous nasal surgery (secondary rhinoplasty)
