A forehead lift, reduces wrinkles, improves frown lines
What is a brow lift?
A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift:
Raises sagging brows that are hooding the upper eyelids

Other cosmetic procedures that may be performed with a brow lift include:
- Upper and or lower eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty)
- Skin resurfacing techniques
Buccal Fat Removal
Buccal Fat Removal Cheek Reduction
The goal of buccal fat removal surgery is to thin the cheeks, especially in the area of the cheek hollows/depressions.
What is buccal fat removal?
The purpose of buccal fat removal is to thin the cheeks, specifically in the area of the cheek hollows. Although a face that is naturally soft and filled out is considered youthful, some people find that their face feels too full, even chubby.
This surgery removes the buccal fat pad, a naturally-occurring pad of fat in the cheek hollow area. The size of the buccal fat pad varies with each individual patient, and the buccal fat pad in both the cheek may be of different sizes. Buccal fat pad extraction surgery is typically not performed in people with thin, narrow faces as removal of the fat may cause the face to look more emaciated with age.
The cheek augmentation surgery brings youthfulness in your face thus rejuvenates and defer
What is cheek augmentation?
The purpose of cheek augmentation is to add volume to the cheeks to give them lifted appearance. Some people are bothered by their cheeks having no volume, or even sagging with age. Others never ever develop the desired volume in their cheeks and are bothered by cheeks that may be considered flat or thin.
Options for cheek augmentation
Valid options for augmenting and enhancing the cheeks are both non-surgical and surgical. The surgical options are fat grafting/transfer (where a patient’s own fat is used) or the use of solid cheek implants. A nonsurgical option is the use of injectable fillers to enhance the cheeks.
EAR SURGERY OTOPLASTY
Ear surgery, or otoplasty, improves the shape, position and proportion of the ear. It can surgically correct by birth deformity of the ear structure.
What is ear surgery?
Ear surgery, also known as otoplasty, can improve the shape, position or proportion of the ear. A deformity in the ear structure that is present by birth or one that becomes apparent with development can be surgically corrected by otoplasty. This procedure can also treat misshapen ears caused by trauma.
Otoplasty creates a more natural shape while bringing balance and proportion to the ears with respect to face. Correction of even minor deformities can have tremendous change in appearance and self-esteem. If protruding or disﬁgured ears bother you or your child, you may consider plastic surgery.
EYELID SURGERY / LEPHAROPLASTY
EYELID SURGERY BLEPHAROPLASTY
Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the eyelids.
What is eyelid surgery?
Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure to improve and rejuvenate the appearance of the eyelids.
Surgery can be performed on either upper lids or lower lids or both simultaneously.
Whether you want to get rid of tired look or improve your appearance or are experiencing functional problems with your eyelids, eyelid surgery can rejuvenate the area surrounding your eyes as well.
A facelift, or rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure to improve visible signs of aging and saggy skin in the face and neck.
What is a facelift?
A facelift, or rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that corrects visible signs of aging in the face and neck and restores youfullness in you, such as:
- Relaxation of the skin of the face causing sagging
- Deepening of the fold lines between the nose and corner of the mouth
- Fat that has vanished leaving tissues drooping.
- Jowls developing in the cheeks and jaw obliterating jaw line
- Loose skin and excess fat of the neck that can appear as a double chin or “turkey neck”
The loss of youthful contours in the face can be due to number of factors, including thinning of the skin, loss of facial fat, gravity, sun damage, smoking, as well as heredity factors and stress.
Other procedures that might be performed simultaneously with a facelift are brow lift and eyelid surgery to rejuvenate aging eyes. Fat transfer or fillers may be suggested to replace the lost fatty volume. Skin treatments such as, dermabrasion, peels or laser may be offered to improve the quality and texture of the skin later on to keep the rejuvenation lasting.
What facelift surgery can’t do
As a restorative surgery, a facelift does not change your basic appearance and cannot stop the aging process.
A facelift can only be performed surgically; minimally invasive rejuvenation treatments cannot achieve the same results, but may help delay the time at which a facelift becomes appropriate and complement the results of surgery.
Some minimally invasive treatments, such as stem cell facelifts, are of unproven benefit.
What are facial implants?
Facial implants are customized solid materials compatible with human tissues, designed to enhance or augment the physical structure of your face.
The precise type and size of facial implants best suited for you requires assessment of your goals, the features you wish to correct and your surgeon’s judgment.
While any area of your face can be augmented with implants, the cheeks, chin and jaw are the most common sites for facial implants. If you are bothered by a small chin/retruded chin, or lack of facial contour, plastic surgery with facial implants may greatly benefit you.
Chin implants increases the size and projection of a chin that is not in proportion with the forehead and mid-face. A small or recessed chin can also be described as one that seems to disappear into the neck of an individual of normal weight, rather than appearing as a distinct facial feature.
Cheek implants increase the projection of the cheekbones. They add volume to areas that are depressed or flat.
A neck lift, or lower rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that improves visible signs of aging in the jawline and neck.
What is a neck lift?
A neck lift, or lower rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that improves visible signs of aging or skin sagginess in the jawline and neck.
What neck lift surgery can treat?
- Excess fat and skin relaxation in the lower face that creates jowls
- Excess fatty deposits under the chin
- Loose neck skin
- Muscle banding in the neck, which created abnormal contours
the loss of youthful contours in the face and neck can be due to a various factor, including heredity, gravity, environmental conditions, smoking and stress.
Some people feel they are not ready for a full facelift because the upper face is still pleasing. However, many patients are bothered by excess wrinkling of the neck skin, a double chin or “turkey wattle” and jowl lines.
When the neck area doesn’t match the upper facial appearance, a neck lift offers a good solution.
Rejuvenation procedures that can be performed in conjunction with a neck lift are: a brow lift, to uplift a sagging or deeply furrowed brow, fat transfer, to add fullness to the lips and cheeks and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, or eyelid surgery, to rejuvenate aging eyes.
What neck lift surgery can’t do
As a restorative surgery, a neck lift does not change your fundamental appearance and cannot stop the aging process.
A neck lift can only be performed surgically; nonsurgical rejuvenation treatments cannot achieve the same results, but may help delay the time at which a neck lift becomes appropriate and complement the results of surgery.
Nonsurgical neck lift
Some people may want to improve the aging appearance of their neck with nonsurgical procedures. Some of the benefits of these nonsurgical options include a quicker recovery time and fewer risks.
Anti wrinkle injections can be used on the vertical neck bands to relax the muscle and reduce wrinkling. Fractionated laser treatment results in textural improvements in the skin. Dermal fillers can restore lost volume to the skin, while Kybella breaks down fat cells thus help in dissolving fat.
Radiofrequency with micro-needling can rejuvenate the skin by producing collagen. Finally, ultrasound technology can also stimulate collagen to improve fine lines and wrinkles.
Rhinoplasty, also referred to as a “nose job” by patients, enhances facial symmetry and the proportions of your nose.
What is rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty, also known as a “nose job” or “nose reshaping” by patients, enhances facial harmony and the proportions of your nose. It also corrects impaired breathing caused by structural defects in the nose
What rhinoplasty can treat?
- Nose size in relation to facial balance
- Nose width at the bridge or in the size and position of the nostrils
- Nose profile with visible humps or depressions on the bridge
- Nasal tip that is enlarged or bulbous, drooping, upturned or hooked
Nostrils that are large, wide or upturned
A thread lift, sometimes referred to as a “lunchtime lift,” uses absorbable, barbed sutures to offer uplift, more youthful aesthetic appearance to the face and neck.
What is a thread lift? A thread lift, sometimes referred to as a “lunchtime lift,” uses absorbable, barbed sutures to offer a relatively tighter, more youthful aesthetic appearance to the face and neck.
This minimally invasive procedure stimulates the production of collagen in the skin in order to produce healthier, firmer youthful skin. It can also mechanically lift tissues where the barbed sutures are placed.
What a thread lift can treat
- Early loosening/sagging of the facial structures
- Sagging eyebrows
- Premature loosening of the neck skin
Who is a good candidate for a thread lift?
A thread lift procedure can be beneficial for both men and women who wish to reduce the appearance of wrinkles/rhytids and early jowls on the face. This procedure can also reduce the appearance of sagging skin, as it gently pulls the skin tighter.
It gives immediate results without the downtime or scarring that occurs with a surgical facelift procedure. If you desire for natural-looking results for firmer skin, then a thread lift may be the right procedure for you. During a consultation, your plastic surgeon will evaluate your anatomy and review your desires to decide if you are a candidate for a thread lift.
