Facial Plastic Surgery Procedures
A number of proven plastic surgery procedures are available for men and women who are dissatisfied with the appearance of a facial feature or want to achieve a more alert and youthful look. Facial plastic surgery is often performed to improve the size and shape of features such as the nose, ears, eyelids, forehead, lips, cheeks and chin.
Many patients develop a new sense of confidence and self-assurance after undergoing surgery to refine the contours of the face and add definition and balance to their appearance. Learn more about your options by scheduling a consultation with a plastic surgeon who is experienced in facial plastic surgery procedures such as Nose Reshaping or Eyelid Surgery.
People who are unhappy with the size or shape of their nose can become very self-conscious. Nose Surgery (rhinoplasty) is a popular procedure used to create a more pleasing form by changing the size, shape or other characteristics of the nose.
Over time, the upper eyelids can begin to droop and bags can appear beneath the eyes. Eyelid Surgery (blepharoplasty) lessens the appearance of aging by eliminating excess skin from the upper eyelids and reducing bagginess below the eyes.
Though nothing can stop the aging process, a facelift can reverse some of the effects of time. During a Facelift (rhytidectomy), the skin is lifted and tightened to smooth the face and restore a firmer, more youthful look.
Children and adults with large or protruding ears can experience emotional distress and be uncomfortable about their appearance. Ear Surgery (otoplasty) can make the ears appear more natural by reducing their size and changing their shape.
The loss of skin elasticity that comes with aging can cause the eyebrows to droop and wrinkles on the forehead to deepen. A Forehead Lift (also called a Brow Lift) raises the eyebrows and lifts and tightens the skin above the eyes.
More than half of men and women in the United State will eventually lose some of their hair. Hair Replacement techniques, including hair transplantation, are a permanent solution for people who want to restore a fuller head of hair and a younger look.
Pads of fat that fill out the cheeks can flatten, change position, or disappear over time. Cheek Augmentation uses cheek implants made of silicone or other materials to fill out the cheeks and add definition and balance to the face.
A small, undersized chin can project an image of weakness and distort the profile of the face. Chin Augmentation uses chin implants to add definition to the chin and bring it into better balance with the rest of the face.
People with thin, unattractive lips or who want to restore the fullness they had when they were younger may be candidates for Lip Augmentation. Fat transferred from another area of the body, soft tissue fillers or lip implants are used to enlarge and reshape the lips.
