Chin: It is often necessary to enlarge the chinslightly to create an overall pleasing result. Ideally, the chin should come forward towards an imaginary perpendicular line which starts from the base of the nose, through the middle of the lower lip, and down to the bottom of the chin. If this is not the case, then the use of an implant to make the chin larger and to strengthen the profile is considered and discussed. There is a great variety of high-quality, medical-grade, plastic-type chin implants which are considered very safe. The body tolerates these extremely well. The benefits from this procedure can be very dramatic.
Eyelid surgeryis used to remove the fat deposits and loose skin that may form on the lower eyelids with age. Many factors, including heredity and sun damage, accelerate these changes. Younger people also elect to have this procedure done to eliminate puffiness of the eyes from congenital excess fatty tissue.
Eyelid surgery is frequently done at the same time as other procedures, such as a facelift or forehead lift, and can be combined with laser or chemical resurfacing to smooth skin wrinkles. When overhanging of the upper lids interferes with peripheral vision, the eyelid surgery may be covered by insurance.
The neck lift, also referred to as platysmaplasty and submental platysmaplasty, is a procedure designed to minimize the appearance of loose, sagging skin in the neck area and below the jaw line. Individuals with a fleshy neck, jowls, plastysma or neck banding, or a turkey waddle may seek this procedure.The neck lift is often combined with a face lift, though patients should be aware that neither procedure addressed the area above the brows or around the eyes.
A facelift is a form of plastic surgery that is used to enhance a person’s facial appearance. It works most efficiently in the mid-face section; the area between a person’s nose and eyelids. Many surgeons reposition the fat deposits and actually pull the skin of the face, which can have the result of an extremely younger looking face. This procedure will virtually eliminate sagging skin and will tighten a person’s facial skin, giving a younger and livelier appearance. Sagging skin, due to age, can have the tension released, thus providing not only a more attractive appearance, but also result in the face physically feeling more youthful. Sometimes, this can be combined with other cosmetic surgeries such as an eyelid lift or nose job.
Facial liposuction, also known as submental liposuction, is the removal of fat from under the chin using a suction device. In other words, it is a way to rid you of a double chin, jowls, or chubbiness under the chin. The fat is sucked out from either an incision in the mouth (intraoral) or a transdermal incision under the chin.
This kind of liposuction can make your face and neck look significantly thinner and make you look like you’ve lost a lot of weight. It can help rescue receding or too-small chin.
Some patients may benefits from both chin liposuction and a chin implant to make the chin more prominent and balance the face. The removal of this excess fat can significantly define a lower facial structure.
