Nose surgery (Rhinoplasty)

The goal of rhinoplasty is a nose that looks natural and blends harmoniously with the other facial features. Alterations may be made to increase or decrease the nasal bridge, reduce the size or width of the nose, narrow the nostrils, change the angle between the nose and upper lip, or reshape the tip. The surgical techniques employed depend primarily on individualized goals that are established for each patient.

Ear surgery (Otoplasty)

Most commonly, ear surgery is performed for prominent ears, or ears which appear to be protrude too far from the head. In children, ear surgery is recommended as they near total ear development at the age of six or seven. Adults may also have their ears reshaped.

Eyelid surgery (Blepharoplasty)

Aesthetic eyelid surgery is often considered for problems affecting both the upper or lower eyelids. In the upper eyelids, excessive upper eyelid skin can either give patients a sad look, or can hang down and impair vision. In the lower eyelids, bags under the eyes can give patients a tired appearance. Excess eyelid skin is removed during the procedure, and the underlying tissue can be repositioned to improve the overall appearance.

Forehead & brow lift

At times, subtle sagging of the forehead can cause the eyebrows to descend, which worsens the problem of excessive upper eyelid skin. A forehead & brow lift can be combined with upper eyelid surgery in order to reposition these tissues with the goal of improving the appearance around the eyes. The method used to perform the lift is individualized to the patient’s facial anatomy.

Face & neck lift

Both gravity and diminished volume result in the facial features of aging. Most patients requesting evaluation for facelift feel that their facial features do not reflect the fact that they still feel youthful and energetic. Face & neck lift procedures are designed to smooth the skin of the face and neck, tighten the underlying tissues and muscle, and remove excess skin.
