Facial cosmetic surgery
As you age, your facial muscles loosen and your skin becomes less elastic, creating folds and lines. The effects of gravity, exposure to the sun and the stresses of daily life begin to take their toll on the face. A facelift operation can give you a more alert and youthful appearance by reducing saggy skin and wrinkles whilst at the same time giving you a natural look.
Facelifts can lift your whole face (a full facelift) or just your brow area, lower face and neck or mid face. The effects of a facelift usually last for seven to ten years. Your face will continue to age. You will get the best results if you maintain a stable body weight, have skin with good levels of elasticity, do not smoke and have good bone structure.
Many times this procedure is performed in conjunction with eyelid or even forehead surgery.
Rhinoplasty is the operation to reduce or refine the nose. The reason may be simply that the person is self conscious of a large hump or a prominent tip. Some individuals may have sustained injuries to their nose. In the vast majority of cases, men and women alike wish to have a normal, average nose that will blend into their face rather than dominate their features.
A forehead lift or ‘brow lift’ is a procedure that restores a more youthful, refreshed look to the area above the eyes. Brow lifts are an important part of eyelid and upper face rejuvenation. A brow lift effectively repositions the eyebrows and smoothes the forehead to address one of the very first signs of aging, the lengthening of the forehead and drooping of the eyebrows.
Our eyes are the most important features on our face and their beauty can be greatly reduced by excess skin creases and eyebags. Eyelid surgery (technically called blepharoplasty) is a procedure to remove fat, usually along with excess skin and muscle, from the upper and lower eyelids.
ePrime is the first minimally invasive aesthetic device to precisely target and deliver measured Radiofrequency(RF) energy directly into the deep parts of the skin achieving a youthful rejuvenation via significant tone, laxity and volumetric improvements of the skin in a single treatment.
The size and shape of our ears is largely dependant on our genes. In some situations an individual’s ears can appear more prominent than on others or the shape can look decidedly out of shape, leading to feelings of embarrassing and psychological distress. The Otoplasty procedure aims to correct protruding or prominent ears by reshaping or repositioning them.
As we age, the effects of gravity can cause our mid facial muscles to move downwards. The Mid Face Lift aims to restore fullness in the cheeks by moving soft tissues back to where they previously sat. The result will be a natural, refreshed appearance that doesn’t look ‘pulled’.
The ageing process causes the lips to narrow and become thin. Lip enhancement can help to restore the fullness we associate with youth and beauty in a woman, using an alternative of three different enhancement procedures; Injections (Restylane, Hydrafill, fat), surgical insertion of implant (Alloderm, Permalip, or own tissue such as dermis), or surgical advancement of own tissue.
Ultherapy is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that uses ultrasound to tone, lift and tighten loose skin on the face. By working with the body’s own natural healing process, Ultherapy stimulates the deep structural layers of the skin, without disturbing the surface of the skin. This could be a good option for those who are not ready for surgery.
