The first thing you notice when meeting a new person is their face. A person’s age is often clearly written in the lines on their face, which is why people work so hard to erase time’s signature from their faces. A surgical facelift is one of the most popular methods of doing this, but this well-known procedure is not alone in its plight against time. Many new facial cosmetic surgeries procedures have come into the spotlight in recent years in the form of injections, laser treatments, as well as surgeries on individual parts of the face such as eyes, nose, ears, and brows.
Botox is one of the most common non surgical facial treatments. It is an injectable protein with the power to correct frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead lines, and neck bands. Another injection, Restylane, is similar but better for smoothing fine lines and filling out the cheeks and lips. A calcium based injection called Radiesse actually produces collagen once inside the body, which adds volume to the face and hands.
With the Fat Transfer procedure or FTP, fat can actually be transferred from other areas into the face to add more volume. The [LIV] Liquid Lift uses a combination of all injections and fillers to provide the same effect as a facelift without any cutting. Injections are layered to give a long lasting effect. Deep wrinkle correction can be achieved through an injection called Sculptra, which, once injected, produces collagen for up to 6 months. Effects last for as long as two years. Laser resurfacing is achieved through a treatment called lasabrasion, which removes things like hair, acne scars, sunspots, precancerous growths, and even wrinkles temporarily.
A surgery called Blepharoplasty is offered for any of your eyelid correction needs. This surgery tightens the eyelids, corrects bags, droops, and puffiness. As eyes are the first to show signs of aging, this surgery can dramatically alter your appearance. You will wake up feeling and looking fresh-faced and much younger. A brow lift can also improve appearance of the eyes. Simply lifting the corner of the brows opens up the eyes, giving them the same youthful look they once had. This helps especially if your eyes appear to be hollow or if hanging skin is hindering your vision.
Otoplasty, otherwise known as ear surgery, is simply a surgery that reshapes your ears. Maybe you were in an accident that left your ear oddly shaped. Maybe a skin cancer left part of your ear missing. Maybe your ears are larger, having been compared to “Dumbo”. Whatever the reason, ears can easily be re-shaped through otoplasty.
You are probably familiar with Rhinoplasty, also referred to as a nose job. This surgery allows you to reshape your nose, whether the purpose is for aesthetics, improved breathing, or improved sleeping.
