As we age, the skin and muscles of the face become lax. Facelift surgery removes excess skin and tightens muscles, resulting in a younger and more refreshed facial appearance.
Eyelid lift, or blepharoplasty surgery removes excess skin and fat above and below the eyes to provide a brighter and more youthful appearance.
Nasal reshaping, or rhinoplasty surgery serves to improve the appearance of the nose. Digital imaging performed in the office before surgery helps to visualize each patient’s desired results and what can be achieved with surgery before the procedure is performed.
There are different types of brow lift procedures. The goal of these procedures is to move eyebrows upward to eliminate heaviness above the eye and reduce forehead wrinkling.
In patients with small or weak chins, a chin implant can help improve the proportions of the face, giving a more balanced and confident appearance.
Some people are born with ears that stick out from the side of the head and are more prominent. For these patients, we can offer otoplasty, commonly referred to as ear surgery, which surgically sets the ears closer to the sides of the head, so ear prominence is minimized and the ears are brought to a more normal position at the sides of the head.
Typically, the procedure is performed on children between the ages of 4 and 14, as it is important to perform the surgery as early as possible to prevent teasing from other children, which can be emotionally stressful to the child. Ear surgery can be performed – with no additional risks involved – on adult patients as well.
