Rhinoplasty – Nose Job
One of the most common plastic surgery procedures is a Rhinoplasty or nose job. This surgery is best performed to increase or decrease the size of the nose, sculpt and change the shape of the tip, bridge, bones, cartilage or nostril size. Nothing has a greater impact on how a person looks than the size and shape of the nose. Because the nose is the most defining characteristic of the face, a slight alteration can greatly improve one’s appearance.
It is important to have realistic goals and expectations regarding the outcome of any rhinoplasty cosmetic surgery procedure. It is also important to consider why you want to have a cosmetic nose job – rhinoplasty. The goal of this nasal contouring surgical procedure is to improve the nose aesthetically to better balance with the other features of the face; sometimes breathing is improved at the same time. This is performed by making small incisions on the inside of the nose. There are no external incisions during rhinoplasty. The skin is lifted off of the cartilage and bone and the nose is then sculpted to the appropriate shape. The skin is then placed back in position and dissolvable sutures are used to close the incisions inside the nose. View some of the best rhinoplasty and facelift before and after photos near me.

The facelift operation is performed to turn back the hands of time and has been refined in such a manner now that it has become an art form. A comprehensive face/ neck lift is a surgical procedure to treat facial and neck skin laxity, sagging and jowling. The primary goal is to lift the jowls and clean up the neck, which are the first signs of showing a person’s age. The cosmetic surgery procedure is performed on both men and women and involves removing fat in the neck, both above and below the platysma muscle. The platysma muscle, the front portion of the neck and the back portion of the neck behind the ears are tightened. The SMAS (which stands for the “superficial musculoaponeurotic system”) located along the cheekbone area, is also tightened. It is important that tightening of the facial muscles is performed so as not to place any tension on the skin. The reason that this is done is so there is not noticeable pulling or tightening of the skin, which will give a wind-tunneled or pulled look.

Blepharoplasty – Eyelid Lift
The eyelids are probably one of the most defining characteristics of facial expression. Patients’ friends tell them that they look tired all the time, but yet they feel great. For that reason, eyelid and/or blepharoplasty surgery is performed. Blepharoplasty is also referred to as having one’s eyelids done and can be performed for both cosmetic reasons and functional reasons. Performed to make the eyelids look more well rested on the upper lids and to remove the puffiness and bags on the lower lids. Excess skin and fat is removed on both the upper and lower lids. View before and after photos of baggy eyelids.
