Many people look in the mirror and see something that they would like to change. It may be their nose, eyelids, wrinkles or sagging skin. Fortunately, there have been many advancements in cosmetic surgical techniques and technology that can address these aesthetic concerns. Some of these are detailed below.
Sitting squarely at the center of the face, the nose plays a large role in the overall symmetry of your face. If it is crooked, overly large or small, or has bumps, it can negatively affect the appearance of your face. Rhinoplasty, commonly referred to as a “nose job”, can help correct these aesthetic problems. A rhinoplasty can also address functional problems to correct a deviated septum or relieve breathing issues caused by obstructions. The surgery can also be a combination of both.
The facelift is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries and is probably what most people think of when they hear the term “plastic surgery”. This technique helps reduce the appearance of sagging skin, lines, creases, folds, and wrinkles on the lower part of the face by repositioning the underlying tissues and tightening the facial skin. This safe and very effective surgery can turn the clock back 10 years.
Ear surgery, also called otoplasty, helps to enhance the position, shape, or proportion of the ears. By reshaping the ears so that they are aesthetically pleasing, balance and proportion are restored to the face and ears. This can have a dramatic impact on appearance and self-esteem. Otoplasty surgery can also correct ear structure defects that are evident at birth and become more noticeable during growth and development.
