Rhytidectomy

Rhytidectomy or facelift is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures designed to restore a tighter and firmer facial skin. In addition to skin tightening and providing a gentle lift to the sagging mid-face, the surgeon will also reposition and tighten the underlying weak muscles and connective tissue. Excess facial fat may be removed or redistributed to create an even look. The procedure can be performed using local anesthesia and mild sedation.

 

Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty or eyelid lift surgery can be performed on upper or lower or both eyelids to correct droopiness and restore younger looking eyes. If the vision is partially impaired due to sagging upper eyelid skin, it will also be corrected. Under eye bags and puffiness that can make a person look old and tired can be improved with blepharoplasty.

Facial Scar Revision

Facial scars can be made significantly smoother and less visible with this scar revision procedure. The procedure may involve recreating the incision, and moving the skin or even the scar to make it less conspicuous. Non-surgical techniques such as laser resurfacing and dermabrasion may be used additionally, particularly when the scars are raised. Keloid scars may first be treated with injectable medications to reduce their size.

 

Forehead Lift and Brow Lift

The latest approach to forehead lift and brow lift is endoscopic surgery. It involves placement of small incisions behind the hairline. The surgeon will use a scope to perform the surgery in a more precise and less invasive manner, resulting in reduced scarring and faster recovery. The procedure can smooth the forehead and raise the brows, and sometimes may even lower a high hairline to improve facial harmony.

 

Mentoplasty

Mentoplasty will involve either chin augmentation or reduction to correct facial balance. Chin augmentations surgery will involve placement of synthetic implants in a customized manner. If the incision is placed inside the mouth, the procedure will result in no visible scarring. In case of chin reduction surgery, the incision may be placed discreetly inside the mouth or under the chin. The surgeon will sculpt the bone to a more harmonious size.

 

Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty or nose reshaping surgery is designed to enhance the shape and size of the nose to make it more attractive and bring it in balance with the rest of the facial features. The incisions may be made inside the nose to keep the scarring invisible. However, in a more invasive surgery, the incision will be made discreetly in the area of skin separating the nostrils.
