Facial aesthetic surgery considerations
Women's reasons for choosing aesthetic surgery vary. Here are some common conditions we often treat surgically to produce favorable outcomes.
The aging process and gravity can create loose skin and displace the fat of your face. You may even experience volume loss. With a facelift skin and muscles are tightened to help you regain a more youthful appearance and restore the contours of your face. Fat can also be added to correct deep wrinkles.
Droopy or sagging eyelids can make you look tired and can affect your vision. By removing or repositioning the excess tissue from your upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both, we can eliminate that tired look. Blepharoplasty is performed for cosmetic purposes or to improve your vision. For women, a sharp lid crease can be created to improve eye lines and enhance the application of cosmetics.
A sagging brow can make us look sad or angry when we're not. You can restore vibrancy to the appearance of your eyebrows or forhead by elevating the sagginess of your eyebrows or by minimizing forehead creases. Brow lift can be done in the traditional open manner or by a minimally invasive technique using an endoscope.
The shape of your nose is a central facial feature. If you feel your nose compromises the natural appearance of your face, there's lots that can be done. A rhinoplasty can reduce the size of your nose, reshape your nose, remove a hump, or correct an injury that may be inhibiting your ability to breathe.
Loose neck skin and sagging jowels can also be treated by cosmetic surgery. A neck lift can help restore the natural curves of your face and tighten sagging neck skin to give you a fresher more youthful look.
And no one should feel that their ears are not in proportion with their facial features. Otoplasty corrects or reconstructs ear deformities or defects to provide a more natural contour to the ears.
If the appearance of facial scarring bothers you, there are surgical procedures known as scar revisions that can help. While no scar can be removed completely,we can often improve the appearance of a scar and make it less obvious.
