Facial Plastic Surgery Procedures
Eyelid Lift – Upper and Lower
An eyelid lift, or blepharoplasty, improves the appearance of the upper and/or lower eyelids by removing fat and excess skin from the eyelids. An eyelid lift may also be performed to correct eyelid drooping caused by medical conditions and aging.
An eyelid lift can make tired, aging eyelids look youthful, alert, and refreshed. Eyelid lift is commonly performed at the same time as a facelift or brow lift.
Forehead / Brow Lift
A forehead lift, also referred to as a brow lift, corrects the effects of aging skin on the upper portion of the face. A brow lift will smooth or soften forehead wrinkles and frown lines between the eyebrows, as well as raise sagging eyebrows to create a younger, fresh-looking face.
A forehead lift can be performed alone or at the same time as a facelift, eyelid lift, or nose reshaping.
Facelift / Mini Face Lift
A facelift (rhytidectomy) improves the appearance of aging facial skin by removing excess fat and sagging skin that has lost elasticity from the cheeks and lower portion of the face to the jawline and neck. It addresses concerns such as severe wrinkles, deep facial folds, and jowls. The result is a younger-looking, refreshed, and healthy face. It’s no wonder that facelift is one of the most frequently performed cosmetic surgeries.
A facelift may be performed at the same time as a neck lift, forehead lift, eyelid lift, nose reshaping, or chin surgery.
Mini Face Lift
Mini-facelifts are popular among people that are not quite ready for a full facelift but would benefit from facial rejuvenation. It can firm the lower facial skin, improve jawline definition, and refine the neck-chin angle.
A mini facelift may also be used as a follow-up procedure by those who have already had a full facelift. Because it is less invasive and not as extensive, a mini facelift has shorter recovery time.
Nose reshaping surgery, or rhinoplasty, is the most common of all facial plastic surgery procedures. People may have rhinoplasty for cosmetic reasons, such as to change the shape of the nose, or for medical reasons, such as to correct structural or functional (breathing) problems.
Nose reshaping can improve the balance of your facial features and enhance your appearance. It may be performed at the same time as a facelift, eyelid lift, brow lift, or chin surgery.
Protruding ears can make children and adults self-conscious and the target of teasing. Also known as otoplasty, ear surgery can reshape or remove some of the cartilage to reposition the ears closer to the head.
Earlobes may begin to droop and hang loosely below the ear as part of the normal aging process or from years of wearing heavy earrings. Torn or droopy earlobes can be repaired, resized, or reshaped by removing excess tissue, which can be performed as a simple, in-office procedure.
Chin surgery, or mentoplasty, reshapes the chin either by enhancement with an implant or reduction surgery on the bone. Chin surgery helps provide balance to your facial features so that you feel better about the way you look.
Chin surgery can be performed alone or at the same time as a facelift, neck liposuction, or nose reshaping.
Neck Lift / Mini-Neck Lift
A neck lift (lower rhytidectomy) is performed to get rid of excess of skin under the chin (“turkey neck”) and to address vertical neck bands (prominent “cords” in the neck). It is often performed in conjunction with a facelift.
A mini-neck lift is a minimally invasive form of cosmetic surgery. Also known as submentoplasty, the procedure targets wrinkles, sagging skin, banding, and fat deposits that occur around the neckline. Those who undergo the procedure can improve the contours of the neckline and take years off their appearance. Mini-neck lift can be done in the office with less downtime than traditional neck lift surgeries.
Liposuction of the neck removes excess fat beneath the chin to reduce the appearance of a double chin, improve the balance of your facial features, and sculpt a well-defined neckline.
Neck liposuction may be performed at the same time as rhinoplasty (nose surgery) or chin surgery.
Facial implants can improve the balance of your facial structures. The most common facial implants are:
- Cheek implants to address lack of facial contour and volume
- Chin implants to augment a small or receded chin
- Jaw implants to enhance a weak jaw
Facial implants may be performed alone or at the same time as a facelift or nose reshaping.
As you age, your face loses volume, most prominently around the eyes, cheeks, and jawline. Fat injections, also referred to as fat grafting or fat transfers, can restore volume to these facial structures and create a more balanced profile.
The procedure involves removing tiny amounts of fat from the patient’s abdomen or thighs and transferring it via injection to the affected areas of the face. It is commonly performed as a supplement to a facelift or mini facelift.
