Facial surgery procedures are used individually or in combination to achieve a younger, more pleasing facial appearance. To accomplish this, Allure Plastic Surgery offers the following procedures to smooth out wrinkles or re-shape facial features such as the eyelids, forehead, brow line, nose and ears.
Facelift. The skin and muscles of the face can lose their elasticity as a result of aging, sun damage or weight fluctuations. Facelift surgery is used to combat the sagging effect that occurs as a result of these factors, as it restores a more refreshed, youthful look to the face. During this procedure, muscles in the cheek and neck will be tightened and any loose, hanging skin will be trimmed away for a smooth, natural look and scars well-hidden in the hairline. This procedure is often combined with eyelid surgery, brow lift surgery and/or nose reshaping to bring a more refreshed look to the entire face.
Allure Mini Facelift. For our younger patients or anyone who wants the rejuvenating effects of a facelift but on a smaller scale, we offer an Allure mini facelift procedure. This procedure is less invasive than facelift surgery, as it only addresses wrinkling and sagging on the lower-third portion of the face, the chin and neck. Its purpose is to minimize the appearance of jowls as well as creases around the base of the nose and corners of the mouth. And since the procedure is less involved than a standard facelift, there are fewer and smaller incisions, the resulting scars are shorter and the recovery time is significantly reduced.
Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty). The delicate skin around the eyes is one of the first places where aging is noticeable. Drooping eyelids and bags under the eyes can create an older, worn out expression for the entire face. Eyelid surgery corrects this by removing excess fat from the upper eyelids, under the lower lids or both. Incisions are made along natural creases in the lids so that scars are barely noticeable. The result of this surgery is a more rested and friendly-looking face.
Brow Lift Surgery. Over time, the effect of gravity and repeated facial expressions creates creases on the forehead and in between the eyebrows, resulting in a haggard, aged and even angry-looking expression. Brow lift surgery creates a more open and youthful look by lifting the forehead and eyebrows to a higher position on the face.
Otoplasty. Ears that are misshapen, large or protruding from the head can cause self-consciousness for both adults and children. Otoplasty surgery reshapes the ears as well as pinning them closer to the head, creating a more pleasing proportion to the entire face.
Nose Reshaping (Rhinoplasty). For patients who aren’t happy with the size or shape of their nose, a nose reshaping (or rhinoplasty) procedure is used to address aesthetic concerns that may include adjusting the width, fixing a hump on the bridge or reshaping a drooping or hooked nasal tip. This procedure can also reshape the nasal structure in order to increase airflow and correct any breathing impairment.
