Face surgery procedures may be performed for a number of reasons, including reconstructive surgery following an accident, birth disfiguration, or personal choice – just to name a few. Below are some of the most common plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery procedures for the face.
Rhinoplasty (Nose Job)
A rhinoplasty procedure, or “nose job” as it’s commonly termed, has a long history. There is evidence of nose job surgery going back as far as 800BC.
Ultrasonic rhinoplasty is a nose job performed with specialised ultrasonic-powered tools that allow for precision sculpting of the underlying bone and cartilage structures.
Face & Neck Lift
As we age, the skin on the face and neck starts to lose elasticity. We can develop jowls, crow’s feet may appear at the corner of our eyes, and the skin beneath the chin may start to sag. A facelift can help create a younger look.
Facial Fat Grafting
Fat grafting is a procedure that harvests small amounts of your own fat from areas such as the buttocks, abdomen, and inner thighs and transfers the cleaned fat into other areas, such as the face and hands, to smooth out wrinkles and lines.
Blepharoplasty Surgery (Eyelids)
Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that is performed to alter the appearance of the upper and/or lower eyelids.
Otoplasty (Ear Pinning)
Otoplasty, or ear pinning surgery, is generally performed to pin back and reduce the size of large and/or protruding ears that can cause embarrassment in children and adults alike.
The brow and forehead areas are often where initial signs of ageing appear. The skin loses its elasticity and this can cause frown lines, wrinkles, and heavy sagging eyebrows. A brow lift can help restore a more youthful appearance.
