A facelift, technically known as rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure to improve visible signs of aging in the face and neck. As we age, skin loses its elasticity and begins to sag in the mid and lower face. Deep creases appear between the nose and mouth, deep lines draw lip corners downward, jowls appear at the jaw line, and neck skin becomes loose and heavily creased. A facelift is designed to correct all of these aging features, restoring a more youthful appearance, uplifted facial contours, and improved facial skin tone. Your fundamental appearance is not changed but a natural, younger appearance is restored.
Cosmetic eyelid surgery, technically called blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. Drooping eyelids, excess skin, fine wrinkles, puffiness or bags can be dramatically improved by cosmetic eyelid surgery. While this surgical procedure on its own can provide marked improvement in the overall appearance of the aging face, it is often coupled with other surgical procedures such as a facelift and/or browlift. And again, as with any cosmetic facial surgical procedure, the ideal result is a more youthful, natural appearance-never an exaggerated, drawn, theatrical-looking result.
Cosmetic surgery of the nose, technically known as rhinoplasty and informally known as a “nose job,” can shorten, tilt up, straighten or build up the most prominent feature of the human face. For those individuals of any age who find the size and/or shape of their nose to be an almost constant source of embarrassment, rhinoplasty can restore self-esteem and pride in one’s appearance and a new outlook on life. A patient’s goals and expectations are especially important when considering cosmetic surgery of the nose. The ideal nose is a natural-looking nose that is in proportion with other facial features. The part should fit the whole to achieve a harmonious balance.
A forehead lift, also known as a browlift, can minimize the visible signs of aging in the upper face-drooping eyebrows, “hooding” over the eyes, deep forehead furrows, and deep frown lines. Although often coupled with facelift surgery, men and women of any age may be good candidates for a forehead lift to correct inherited conditions such as droopy brows or deep frown lines in adults of any age.
