As part of the normal aging process, eyelids stretch and the supporting muscles weaken, deep facial lines and wrinkles appear and facial skin may sag. A number of procedures are available which give a more rested and youthful appearance without any dramatic changes to one's appearance.
We also assist with procedures such as prominent ear surgery which creates a naturally shaped ear while restoring balance and proportion to the ears and face.Contact Us
Facelifts reduce the appearance of deep facial lines and wrinkles, and sagging facial skin. A face lift gives a more rested and youthful appearance, without any dramatic changes to one's appearance.
Patients suitable for facelift surgery are generally between 35 and 65, with visible signs of aging of the face. Older patients can successfully undergo facelift surgery but cannot expect the same result as younger patients.
A face lift gives a more rested and youthful appearance.
A facelift looks to address the following:
Patients should be near or close to their ideal weight, as weight loss or weight gain is apparent in the face and will influence the result of surgery.
The following cannot be corrected/removed or improved by a facelift:
These conditions can be corrected by resurfacing techniques such as laser, chemical peels, microneedling, and microdermabrasion.
Facelift results can be enhanced by using dermal fillers, Botox, fat grafting, and resurfacing techniques such as laser, chemical peels, microneedling, and microdermabrasion.
Facial aging usually continues after a facelift and is also influenced by weight loss or weight gain, sun exposure, pregnancy, menopause, and other circumstances unrelated to facelift surgery. Therefore, the results are not permanent, typically lasting between 5 and 10 years.
Facial fat grafting is an essential part of facial rejuvenation. It is often performed as part of a facelift procedure but can also be performed separately. Facial fat grafting plumps the cheeks and lips, smooths under eye bags, and softens creases and wrinkles like dermal fillers.
Facial fat is the padding that offers volume and a soft, youthful face. Loss of volume in the face results in sagging, loose skin, and wrinkles. This loss of volume results from thinning of the skin and atrophy of fat, bone, and muscle.
Facial fat is the padding that offers volume and a soft, youthful face.
Fat is harvested from one part of the body, processed, and injected into the face to improve contour by correcting volume deficiencies. Skin texture and thickness are also improved, and minor lifting can be achieved.
You could consider this procedure if you:
The following cannot be corrected or improved by this procedure:
Dermal fillers can be used as an alternative to facial fat grafting.
As part of the normal aging process, eyelids stretch, and the supporting muscles weaken. Excess fat and skin may therefore gather above and below the eyelids, causing sagging eyebrows, drooping upper eyelids, and bags under the eyes.
These features can be improved during a surgical procedure called blepharoplasty, by surgically removing excess skin, muscle, and fat. A blepharoplasty can be performed together with a facelift or other facial surgery.
Blepharoplasty surgery must be tailored to each patient, depending on their concerns and the condition of their eyelids.
You could consider this procedure if:
The following cannot be corrected/removed or improved by a blepharoplasty procedure:
These problems can be corrected by brow lifts, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, fat grafting, or Botox.
The blepharoplasty procedure will not stop your eyes from aging. Therefore, this surgery’s results are not permanent but definitely long-lasting.
The neck has been a feature of beauty and sensuality for many years and is often the first area of the face to show aging. If you have lost weight, you might have loose-hanging skin on the neck that has lost elasticity. A neck lift and neck liposuction can restore shape to your neck.
Neck lift surgery and neck liposuction are tailored to each patient, depending on their concerns and neck condition.
In many cases, neck lifts or neck liposuction is performed in conjunction with a facelift. This is especially the case in older patients with fat deposits and lax skin on the face and neck.
The neck has been a feature of beauty and sensuality for many years and is often the first area of the face to show aging.
You can undergo neck lift surgery and neck liposuction at any age. Young patients with significant fat and some degree of excess skin or who have lost considerable weight are suitable candidates for neck lift and neck liposuction procedures.
Ideal candidates for neck liposuction will have firm, elastic skin with fat pockets or excessive skin in the neck. Patients with diminished skin elasticity in the neck may not achieve the same result as patients with tighter skin.
You should be close to your ideal weight, as weight gain or loss after surgery will influence the surgical results.
You could consider this surgical procedure if you have the following:
The following cannot be corrected/removed or improved by a neck lift or neck liposuction:
These problems can be corrected by chemical peels, microneedling, dermabrasion, or laser treatments.
Surgery to the external ear can help to improve the shape, position, and proportion of the ears, resulting from defects of the ear structure and include the correction of protruding ears, misshapen ears ("cup" ears, "shell" ears, and "lop" ears) or ears without natural contours.
Depending on specific concerns and deformities, ear surgery is tailored to each patient.
Prominent ear surgery creates a naturally shaped ear while restoring balance and proportion to the ears and face.
Children should be at least six years old when the ear cartilage is stable enough for correction. They should be healthy and not suffer from chronic ear infections. They should also be able to understand, listen to and follow instructions well and be cooperative.
Adults can also undergo this surgery.
You could consider this surgical procedure if you or your child’s ears are:
Otoplasty does not improve the ability to hear and does not change the location of the ears.
In my experience, no successful non-surgical methods exist to improve or correct prominent or misshapen ears.
