Cheeks & Chin Augmentation

The appearance of the face is determined by three basic components: skin, fat and underlying facial bones.Defined facial features, visible contours and proportionate natural angles that are, all create a structural balance in your face. This adds to an attractive appearance. If the structure of your face doesn't have the right proportions - the chin is recessed, the jaw undefined or cheeks are flat. It can significantly affect your self-image.
If you are bothered by a small chin, weak jaw or lack of facial contour, a chin or cheek augmentation with facial implants may benefit you. While any area of your face can be augmented with implants, the cheekbones, chin, and jaw are the most common sites for facial implants. Please read FAQ's for more information

How is Chin and Cheek augmentation done?
There are two techniques for adding prominence and contour to the chin. One, performed through an incision inside the mouth, requires moving the chin bone. A more common approach involves insertion of a chin implant. The implant is inserted through incisions inside the mouth or on the underside of the chin. If the incision is inside the mouth, it is closed with sutures (stitches) that later dissolve. If the incision is under the chin, Surgery usually leaves only a faint scar that is barely visible underneath the chin. This procedure may take between one or one and a half hour.

Nose Job

A nose job is a surgery on the nose to change its shape or improve its function. It can be done for medical reasons -- such as to correct breathing problems related to the nose or correct disfigurement resulting from trauma or birth defects. It can also be done for cosmetic reasons, which will change the nose's shape and appearance. Deciding on a Nose Job If you are thinking about getting a nose job, set up an appointment with your surgeon to discuss it.

Lip Job

Lip augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that can give you fuller, plumper lips.

These days, an injectable dermal filler is the most commonly used method of lip augmentation.

There are many types of dermal fillers that can be injected in your lips and around your mouth. But the most common fillers today are products that contain substances similar to hyaluronic acid.Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the body. It helps increase volume in your lips.

These types of dermal fillers are sometimes called "hyaluronic acid fillers."

Collagen, once the most common dermal filler, is used less often today. The newer options are safer and the effects last longer.

Fat injections and implants are other methods to plump lips. But they aren't used as much today because the results vary and there is a greater risk of side effects.

Uses of Hyaluronic Acid Fillers Hyaluronic acid fillers can improve the appearance of your lips by adding:

• Shape

• Structure

• Volume

The effects typically last six months. After that more injections are needed to keep the volume of your lips

FaceLift(Rhytidoplasty)

Thread lift is a type of cosmetic procedure used to lift and realign the sagging tissue while adding definition to facial contours through the use of absorbable ‘threads’. This procedure helps to reposition sagging cheeks, lift eyebrows, correct the marionette line, support the neck and improve facial features. The unique design of the barbs of the thread lead the surrounding tissues to hold the threads in their place without any visible scars. For the mid-face procedure, a tiny incision is made very close to the ear and the threads are advanced along the marked contours toward the chin and jaw line, ultimately creating a very firm hold on the underlying tissues without leading to any additional trauma. This procedure can be used for both Men and Women, typically in their thirties to sixties looking for a youthful appearance.

Blephroplasty

Classic upper eyelid blepharoplasty involved the aggressive resection of skin and fat. This often led, with aging and the fat atrophy that universally occurs in that process, to a sunken appearance of the upper lid area. This resulted in a skeletal appearance primarily caused by the iatrogenic decrease in fat in the area. The overreaction of skin without proper brow fixation also led to the migration of heavier brow skin into the upper eyelid area, resulting in a worsened appearance. Often, resections were so aggressive that proper brow positioning could not be achieved without lagophthalmos and resultant dry eye symptomatology. Recent advances in the understanding of anatomy, histopathology, and the process of aging have led to changes in surgical techniques.

A dramatic change has occurred over the past few years in the performance of upper eyelid blepharoplasties. Unlike the major skin and fat resections that many plastic surgeons were taught, conservative skin resection with adequate but not skeletonizing fat resection and the production of a well-defined and deep upper eyelid fold are the ideal results of surgery. Anatomic knowledge has largely fueled this change, as have unsatisfactory results from simple skin and fat resection over the years. The anchor or fold blepharoplasty yields a much more predictable and cleaner palpebral fold than standard previous techniques. [8]

For the Asian double-eyelid procedure, basically, 3 operations are possible. The first involves simple suture techniques that pass through the conjunctiva and cause stitch adherence between the deep dermis and the fascial network. The disadvantages of this procedure are the ease with which the stitches detach, its nonpermanent nature, and the resulting static fold.
