The Rhytidectomy, more commonly known as a facelift, is surgical procedure created to turn back the clock on the visual signs of early aging, uncovering a youthful appearance. A facelift will tighten sagging facial tissues, jowls, and loose neck skin. By ensuring the underlying muscles are smooth and tight, the remaining tissues can be re-draped to create a refreshed appearance. The ideal facelift candidate will be in generally good health, looking to reverse the early signs of aging. Both men and women can benefit from a facelift.
An eyelid lift, also known as the blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure that eliminates loose skin and bulging fat pads from the upper and lower eyelids. Many people notice the first signs of aging in the eye area. The blepharoplasty can dramatically improve the appearance by brightening the eyes and taking away a tired and puffy look. Whether you want to improve your appearance or are experiencing functional problems with your eyelids, eyelid surgery can rejuvenate the area surrounding your eyes.
A neck lift, or lower rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that improves visible signs of aging in the jawline and neck. Aging, weight loss, and genetics can take a serious toll on your neck. In fact, the neck tends to age faster than the face giving away an individual’s age in spite of their best skincare efforts. With age, the platysmal bands become flaccid, which is a major cause of sagging. Other potential causes include lipodystrophy, nasolabial jowls that extend to the neck due to laxity, and excess skin. The loss of youthful contours in the face and neck can be due to a variety of factors, including heredity, gravity, and environmental conditions.
Surgical correction of the nose and its structures is known as a rhinoplasty. Sometimes referred to as a nose job, rhinoplasty can reshape and rebuild the nose, and help to relieve functional breathing obstructions. Because the nose plays a prominent role in the balance of one’s facial appearance, changing the nose can achieve better harmony between the nose and the facial features. A well-proportioned nose, that is harmonious with the eyes, cheeks, and mouth can have a tremendous and powerful impact on our overall facial appearance. This balance also affects the way that others view us.
