Facial Procedures overview
Which procedures does this include?
Face and Neck Lifts
As the face ages the skin and underlying muscles become lax with loss of skin tone and elasticity. This combined with the effects of the sun result in drooping of the facial tissues. There is also loss of fat volume and descent of fat in the face. A facelift can partly reverse these changes, particularly the neck and jaw line.
Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)
Eyelid bags are a combination of excessive skin on the lid, with or without bulging fat from under the eyelid. This can make the eye look older, tired or ‘puffy’. The eye-lid bags can be composed of both skin and fat, and this varies between people. Older people usually have extra skin with variable amounts of fat, while younger people tend to have prominent fat.
Droop (or ptosis) of the forehead with age can result in the eyebrows dropping and partly covering the eyelid. This can give a 'tired' or 'angry' look. As a result the forehead can become quite lined as it tries to keep the eyebrows elevated. Surgery can partly correct these changes by lifting and changing the shape of the brow as needed.
Nose Re-Shaping (Rhinoplasty)
Whether you feel that your nose is the too long, too big or has a ‘hump’ on top, this procedure can make a big difference to your overall appearance and self esteem.
Ear Surgery (Otoplasty)
Otoplasty can be carried out to reshape ears and place protruding ears closer to the head. Prominent or ‘Bat-ears’ can be a cause of embarrassment and stress for both adults and children. This reshaping will make the ear look smaller although it is also possible to reduce the size of the ear or the ear-lobe (especially after the use of ear-ring spacers).
Fat Transfer in the Face
Fat can be used for it’s properties to both fill the skin to give more volume and also for it’s ability to improve the quality of the skin and wrinkles. Fat is a source of not only fat cells but also Stem cells which have ability to help with healing and blood supply.
