A Facelift refers to the surgical procedure that removes excess skin, tightens and lifts the sagging cheeks, the jowls and neck area. There are many techniques that are performed. These techniques all have advantages and disadvantages. Some provide a longer lasting result; some techniques are better for the fuller face and other techniques are better for the thin face. Recovery also differs.
Wrinkles, sagging skin and folds under the chin are often some of the first signs of aging. A Neck Lift, which is also known as a Platysmaplasty, is a procedure that tightens the muscles in the neck and may remove some of the skin. This procedure also helps create a more defined jaw line.
Neck Liposuction is a very popular procedure as accumulation of fat in the area underneath the chin is common. In the right individual, Neck Liposuction can improve the overall look of the face and create a more elegant appearance in women and more masculine appearance in men.
Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery can improve the aging appearance to the upper and lower eyelids. Over time, the upper eyelids can develop excess skin and wrinkles; they can droop to cover more of the eye, and they can develop excessive fat in the upper eyelid. The lower eyelids can also develop excessive skin and wrinkles, fat, and lose muscle. The lower eyelids can also develop dark circles and deep folds between the lower eyelids and the cheek.
Rhinoplasty or Nasal Reshaping is the second most common plastic surgery performed in the United States. Rhinoplasty can increase or decrease the tip; it can narrow or widen the tip; it can push the tip down or pull it up. Rhinoplasty can also decrease a bump on the nose and make it less wide. Dr. Michael J. Lee believes that Rhinoplasty is about restoring balance to the overall face and refining the appearance of the nose.
Facial Implants are used to enhance a patient’s jaw line or cheeks. Facial Implants can greatly enhance existing facial features.
