Face Lift Eyelid Surgery
Facelift (also known as Rhytidectomy) is a procedure performed in order to reverse the effects of age, gravity, exposure to the sun, and daily stress by removing excess fat, tightening facial muscles, and readjusting the facial skin. A facelift is also an excellent procedure for those with excess skin hanging from the neck or jowls. A facelift may be done in combination with other facial procedures such as a forehead lift (brow lift) or eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty).
Facelift is a highly individualized procedure that your surgeon will tailor to your unique bone structure, skin texture, and underlying muscle tone. Facelifts do not improve skin texture, although they can be done in conjunction with procedures that do improve texture, such as laser or chemical skin peels.
Eyelid Surgery Browlift
The area surrounding the eyes is one of the first to show the signs of aging. Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, corrects for sagging upper eyelids and for the bags that form just below the eyes. Eyelid surgery can wash away years of aging, giving your eyes a smoother and more youthful appearance.
The surgeon begins by making incisions along the natural creases of the upper lid, and/or directly under the lower eyelashes. The skin is then separated from the underlying tissue and the excess fat, skin, and muscle are extracted. The surgeon then replaces and stitches the skin, leaving it smooth and tight. Blepharoplasty lasts anywhere from one to three hours and is usually performed on an outpatient basis.
A sagging, heavy brow can give others the false impression that you are always unhappy or tired. While our brows drops naturally with age, some of us are genetically predisposed to a low or furrowed brow. As a result, we endure a lifetime of unnecessarily being told to cheer up or get some rest. A brow lift removes this burden, allowing you to feel confident that your face reflects your true feelings.
During the procedure, commonly performed on men and women between the ages of 35 and 70, the surgeon elevates the skin and underlying tissues of the upper face, and may remove part of the muscle that causes frown lines between the brows.
- The result is a more youthful, relaxed, and refreshed appearance.
A brow lift, or forehead lift, repositions the eyebrows so that they sit in a more natural position on your face. A viewing apparatus called an endoscope is utilized, allowing the visibility required to make small adjustments to the muscles with minimal risk of damage to the nerves or hairline’s appearance. Brow lift surgery is usually an outpatient service, as only a mild sedative and local anesthesia are used.
Surgery to reshape the nose is a common cosmetic procedure that can have profound results on a person’s appearance and self-confidence. Rhinoplasty can accomplish any number of changes, including size augmentation or reduction, a narrowing of the nostrils, changes in the bridge or tip of the nose, or an alteration to the angle of the nose and upper lip. Regardless of the specific purpose, surgery to reshape the nose creates a more contoured and shapely nose.
The surgeon begins by making an incision, either from within the nose or across the columella (the vertical strip separating the nostrils). The skin is then separated from the underlying framework of the nose and the bone and cartilage is sculpted to the desired shape and size. Finally, the surgeon reattaches the skin to the new contoured framework and stitches the incision. Surgery usually lasts one to two hours and is performed on an outpatient basis.
IPL Photo Rejuvenation
IPL Photo Rejuvenation is a modern cosmetic procedure for removing facial wrinkles, aging spots, facial discolorations, acne scars, and skin growths. This procedure has become extremely popular in the past few years since, as opposed to previous approaches, it involves no surgical cutting. IPL is a quick and effective procedure that leaves patients with smoother, younger looking skin.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a simple, nonsurgical, physician-administered treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people from 18 to 65 years of age. It is the only treatment of its type approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Restylane® is a safe and natural cosmetic dermal filler that restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds.
