A facelift is not one single type of surgery, but a range of surgical procedures. A face
lift can be minimally invasive or a more advanced surgery. In either case, a facelift
lifts and repositions the skin on the cheeks, jawline, and neck. Excess skin is removed, which corrects the descent of facial features that happens with age. A facelift restoresmany different areas of the face in a single procedure, and results are long-lasting.
BLEPHAROPLASTY (EYE or EYELID LIFT)
Blepharoplasty restores a more youthful appearance around the eyes by removing
excess skin in the upper and lower eyelids. The procedure resolves the “hooded” appearance of upper eyelids and reduces bagginess and drooping skin around the eyes.
This procedure makes the eyes look more open and youthful and can also resolve
vision problems from overhanging eyelids. This procedure can be combined with an
eye lift, brow lift, or facelift for global rejuvenation of the face.
Rhinoplasty may be used to improve the size, symmetry, alignment, shape, and/or
angle of the nose. Surgery may also be needed to correct structural problems that can cause breathing issues or to repair damage from injury. With careful diagnosis andtreatment planning, rhinoplasty can deliver transformative results.
For many patients, particularly those who have worked to maintain the health of their skin and facial appearance, loose skin or folds in the neck may appear not to match the age of the face. A neck lift removes excess, loose skin to correct sagging and lines while tightening the skin. The effect of lifting and tightening skin in the neck also includes a more defined neckline and jawline. This procedure can be combined with a facelift or chin lift for a global rejuvenation of the face.
CHIN AND CHEEK AUGMENTATION
Chin and cheek augmentation may be needed to restore or improve volume, contour, or aesthetic balance in the face, and are commonly requested treatments. Injectable fillers may be used to provide volume to these areas, however results are temporary, lasting around 12-18 months, depending on the filler used. Permanent options include facial implants, which are precisely placed during a surgical procedure.
OTOPLASTY (EAR SURGERY)
Otoplasty is a procedure which can change the shape, position, or size of the ears.
Otoplasty may also be used to pin the ears closer to the side of the head, or improve symmetry when one ear is positioned higher than the other. Restoring balance and aesthetic proportion to the ears can dramatically improve self-confidence and improve
how the face is perceived by others.
BROW or FOREHEAD LIFT
Brow or forehead lifts include a range of different surgical procedures, as the locationand length of the incision is placed according to the needs of the individual patient. By tightening and lifting the skin in the upper face, deep lines in the forehead and creases
at the top of the nose are resolved, the position of the brow is elevated, and facial
expressions are more youthful and pronounced.
