With the exception of rhinoplasty (surgery of the nose), most facial cosmetic surgery is performed to combat the affects of time. Many people are unaware of the variety of procedures that can combat the signs of age and the sad or tired appearance it can bring to your face. You should consult with Dr. Brown to determine which procedures offered in our practice can bring about your desired results.
Facelift & Neck Lift
The facelift and neck lift are probably the most famous procedures in plastic surgery. Actually, infamous may be a better word. But with today’s new surgical techniques and advancements, the procedures are more effective and natural-looking than ever. Both procedures involve tightening the skin and underlying tissue to leave you looking refreshed, rested and healthy. Many patients look as much as five to ten years younger and best of all, they look younger naturally.
Forehead & Eyebrow Lift
It’s hard to think of any facial expression that doesn’t involve the forehead and brow. Unfortunately a lifetime of expression can take its toll on your face. A surgeon can address deep forehead wrinkling and frown lines through the skin and underlying tissue and muscle. Similar techniques can address sagging or drooping eyebrows that make a person look sad and tired.
Aesthetic eyelid surgery, also called “blepharoplasty,” removes the excess fat and wrinkled drooping skin of the upper eyelids that can make you look constantly tired or sad. It also eliminates bags under the eyes and tightens the lower eyelid skin. The result is a brighter, more alert and rested appearance.
Rhinoplasty, or nasal surgery, can reduce the overall size, improve the tip, remove a bump, narrow or widen the width, or even improve the angle between the nose and the upper lip. The idea is not to create a new nose, but rather to improve and enhance the one you have. Your final result will be a permanent improvement which will last the rest of your life. The key is to create harmony and balance on your face so that naturalness is evident.
Ear surgery is common among people who believe their ears are too large. However, in most situations the problem actually is just a matter of the ears sticking out. Otoplasty is a surgical technique used to pin your ears closer to your head.
