A facelift smoothes loose skin on your face and neck, tightens underlying tissue and removes excess fat. There are many variations to the facelift procedure and the placement of incisions. The goal of every facelift technique is to keep the incisions hidden as much as possible; following surgery, scars will be concealed by your hair or with makeup.
Eyelid and Brow Lift
Cosmetic eyelid surgery removes the excess fat and wrinkled, drooping skin of the upper eyelids that can make you look tired or sad. It also eliminates bags under your eyes and tightens your lower eyelid skin. The result is a more alert and rested appearance.
For cosmetic or reconstructive purposes, nasal surgery (also known as rhinoplasty) reshapes the nose. A physician can change the size of the nose, change the shape of the tip or bridge of the nose, narrow the span of the nostrils, or change the angle between the nose and upper lip. In some cases, nasal surgery can be used to correct a birth defect or relieve breathing problems.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Using a laser to remove areas of damaged or wrinkled skin, laser skin resurfacing works to improve skin layer by layer. Typically, a physician is able to minimize the appearance of fine lines around the mouth and eyes. Laser skin resurfacing is also helpful in treating facial scars, and in areas of uneven pigmentation. It can be used over the entire face or for specific regions.
