Whether you are just beginning to see the fine facial lines and/or sagging skin that comes with getting older or already experience the effects of aging, there are multiple cosmetic surgery options available. One of these options is to get a face-lift, which can help smooth out those fine lines and tighten the skin.
While many people use the term face-lift to cover all cosmetic surgery improvements to the face, there are many different types of facial cosmetic procedures that focus on a specific part of the face; such as the brows or eyelids. Here is a breakdown of the types of procedures available at our practice.
Also known as a rhytidectomy, a face-lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure that helps diminish the facial lines and sagging skin that comes with aging. There will be very tiny incisions around the face so that a professional surgeon can then carefully separate the skin from the muscle underneath in order to make it tighter and smoother. There are different types of face-lifts available, including a standard face-lift, a mini face-lift and a deep plane face-lift. In order to determine which type of procedure is going to be the best choice for someone, we will need to conduct a face-lift consultation.
According to use the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, a face-lift is deemed to be a safe procedure when performed by a qualified cosmetic surgeon.
A brow lift is also known as a forehead lift and is one of the most effective cosmetic procedures for opening up the eye area. A saggy, droopy forehead or one that has many lines can often make someone look stressed, worried or even older than his or her actual age. Getting a brow lift can improve a sagging brow, restoring the forehead and brow area back to its original, smoother condition.
There are a few different types of brow lift surgery – classic brow lift, temporal brow lift, endoscopic brow lift – and a professional cosmetic surgeon will determine which one is going to be the most effective choice for the individual patient.
Known as a cervicoplasty and platysmaplasty, the reason for a neck lift is to remove any sagging or loose skin in the neck area. Sagging neck fat is one of the most common complaints about those who have lost a lot of weight or those who experience the natural effects of aging. A common outpatient procedure, people who desire a neck lift can expect a cosmetic surgeon to make a few tiny incisions in the neck area.
The surgeon will then use these areas to tighten up the surrounding muscles. When we complete this procedure, we can help provide the level of results the patient desires. Thus, if the patient desires a more noticeable and drastic change, we can help. According to John Hopkins Medicine, a neck lift can assist with the creation of a well-defined jawline.
Also known as a blepharoplasty, an eyelid lift is a surgical cosmetic procedure that improves the overall appearance of the eyelid area. The reason why eyelid surgery is now a top cosmetic procedure is that it is one of the most effective ways to refresh the eye area. We can complete the surgery on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both.
While we will take the patient’s opinion and desires into account, we will make the decision after determining the procedure that will produce safe and healthy results. The reason why an eyelid lift is popular is often due to a patient having too much/too loose eyelid skin, fatty deposits that look swollen, large bags underneath the eyes and droopy lower eyelids.
A rhinoplasty is also known as a nose job and is a surgical cosmetic procedure that reshapes the nose. This procedure can include altering the size as well as improving the symmetry. The ultimate goal of a rhinoplasty is to adjust the nose to better proportion with the rest of the face.
There are many reasons why someone would want/need a rhinoplasty, including correcting breathing problems, straightening a crooked nose, refining a bulbous nasal tip and smoothing out a prominent bump.
When someone is looking for a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that can help provide patients with a younger appearance, Botox® is a great option. This non-invasive cosmetic choice is a fairly simple procedure that helps to smooth out the facial lines that people associate with aging.
Thus, Botox® is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments performed nationwide, according to the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery. This cosmetic treatment works by relaxing the facial muscles, allowing for a more youthful look by minimizing any facial lines.
Botox is used most often for:
- Reducing frown lines
- Reducing wrinkles around the eye area
- Reducing wrinkles in the corners of the mouth
- Reducing creases in the forehead
