Blepharoplasty (Eye Lift)

Eyelift surgery, or blepharoplasty, is performed to improve the appearance of drooping eyelids and/or puffiness or bags around the eyes. A blepharoplasty may be performed on the upper eyelids, the lower eyelids, or all four lids. The procedure serves to remove excess fat, muscle and skin, resulting in a more youthful appearance.

Cheek Augmentation

Cheek augmentation is performed to enhance cheek projection and improve facial proportions and aesthetics. It is performed through incisions hidden in the mouth and utilizes either alloplastic materials (cheek implants) or a bone graft. This procedure may be done alone or in combination with other cosmetic surgery procedures.

Forehead Lift and Brow Lift

The brow and forehead areas are often the first to show signs of aging. Sun, wind and gravitational forces cause the skin to lose its elasticity, leading to wrinkling and a perceived heaviness in this region of the face. A forehead or brow lift is one option for minimizing the effects of these changes in your appearance.

The procedure is performed by tightening the skin of the forehead and removing excess skin, thus reducing wrinkling and minimizing the appearance of “drooping brows.” In some cases, the surgeon may remove a portion of the muscle that causes these vertical wrinkles. The goal of surgery is a smoother, more youthful appearance. While the average age range for this procedure is 40 to 65, it is often considered at an earlier age.

Genioplasty (Chin Augmentation)

Chin augmentation, known as genioplasty, enhances chin projection and improves facial proportions and esthetics. The procedure is performed through incisions hidden in the mouth by using either alloplastic materials (a chin implant) or by creating a bone cut in the chin and sliding the chin forward (osteoplastic genioplasty).

Rhinoplasty (Nasal Surgery)

Surgery to correct the appearance of the nose, rhinoplasty, has been performed for many centuries. The nose is the most defining characteristic of the face and even a small change can drastically improve a person’s appearance. Our patients often choose to have other facial cosmetic surgery procedures performed in conjunction with rhinoplasty.

There is no ideal nose. The most important consideration is creating harmony with the other features of the face. There are many important factors that must be considered prior to undergoing rhinoplasty, including skin type, ethnic background and age. We do not perform rhinoplasties on patients until they have fully grown which, in most cases, occurs around the age of 15 or 16. The exception to this rule is if breathing is severely impaired.

Rhytidectomy (Facelift)

Aging of the face is inevitable. As the years go by, the skin of the face and neck begin to loosen. Crow’s feet appear at the corners of the eyes. Fine forehead lines become creases and then, gradually, deeper folds. The jaw line softens into jowls and vertical folds appear at the front of the neck. Heredity, personal habits, the pull of gravity, and sun exposure all contribute to the aging of the facial skin. Taking this into consideration, it is obvious why rhytidectomy has become the third most desired facial plastic surgery procedure.

As with all facial plastic surgery, good health and realistic expectations are prerequisites. Understanding the limitations of rhytidectomy is crucial and psychological stability is vital. There is no ideal in a facelift. Rather, the goal is to improve the overall facial appearance. Skin type, ethnic background, degree of skin elasticity, individual healing, basic bone structure, as well as the ability to have a realistic expectation of results, are factors that should be explored prior to surgery. This procedure is sometimes performed on patients in their thirties, and successful surgery has been performed on patients in their eighties.

A facelift cannot stop aging, nor can it “turn back the clock.” What it can do is help your face look its best and provide a healthier and more youthful appearance. Increased self confidence is often a benefit of a rhytidectomy, as well as all other facial plastic surgery procedures.

Liposuction

Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery technique which involves the removal of fat cells through a steel tube called a cannula. Liposuction is a highly effective contouring technique.
