Facelift
A facelift, a.k.a. rhytidectomy, is designed to reverse the effects gravity, age, sun damage, stress, and other factors may have on the skin and soft tissue of your face and neck. Skin damage may manifest as loose or sagging skin with a plethora of wrinkles. As we age, some  of the fatty tissue in our face shrivel and sag, compounding the effects of the afore mentioned skin and soft tissue damage. The face lift procedure smoothes out the wrinkled skin, moves around and tightens the underlying fatty tissue, and removes the excess skin to provide a rejuvenated and more youthful appearance.

Nose Surgery (Rhinoplasty)
Nose surgery can serve two purposes: improve your breathing and make it look more aesthetically appealing. Not only can we improve the appearance of your nose, but if you have breathing difficulties, nose surgery can alleviate the obstruction and improve your breathing.  This procedure can address various aspects of your nose, including the tip shape, the length and height of your nose, the width of your nose, and the overall shape of your nose. Insurance will often cover nose surgeries if it were tramatically injured or if you have breathing difficulties. However, any surgery that does not address a breathing problems is considered cosmetic and not covered by insurance.

Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)
Eyelid surgery can address both visual field obstructions and the cosmetic appearance of the eye.  Upper and lower eyelids can have either excess fatty tissue, excess skin, or both. During the aging process, the fatty tissue and skin of your face weaken and droop, resulting in more prominent separations between your eyes and cheek. The fatty tissue underneath your eyes may also pooch out as “bags” underneath your eyes. Excess eyelid skin can also bunch up as wrinkles around the eyes.

While these conditions are commonly the result of the gravity and aging, people can also be born with these problems or develop them as a result of chronic allergies and swollen lids.

When the upper eyelids are too prominent, either as a result of too much fatty tissue or redundant skin, they droop down and block your vision. Eyelid surgery to correct visual field obstructions are covered by many insurances.

Ear Surgery (Otoplasty)
Ear surgery can correct ears that appear too prominent for a variety of reasons. Although this procedure is most commonly performed on children, it is frequently performed in adults as well. Prominent ears can be reduced by either setting the ears further back against the skull, folding the ear cartilage back, or removing excess cartilage. The procedure of choice depends on the ear anatomy and why the ear appears to “stick out”.

Reasons for having ear surgery:

  1. Porminant ears that “stick out”
  2. Correct congenital ear deformities (folded ear, hidden ear, etc.)
  3. Fix traumatic ear deformities
  4. Fix torn ear lobes

Chin and Cheek Augmentation
Chin and cheek augmentation can provide the necessary definition to balance out and give proportion to a face. It can also correct the loss of facial volume and associated youthful appearance. Chin augmentation can be performed by either placing a implant or moving your chin. Similarly, cheek augmentations can be performed by placing an implant or taking fatty tissue from other parts of the body and replacing the lost facial volume.
