Page ContentFaceFacial rejuvenation includes a wide spectrum of surgical and nonsurgical techniques which addresses the aging process of the brow, eyelids, face, chin and neck. Depending on the severity of the aging and the needs of the patient, there are several procedures available for both men and women. Ear ProceduresEar Pinning (otoplasty)Ear surgery – also known as otoplasty – can improve the shape, position or proportion of the ear. It can correct a defect in the ear structure that is present at birth that becomes apparent with development, or it can treat misshapen ears caused by injury.Specifically ear surgery can treat:Overly large ears – a rare condition called macrotia.Protruding ears occurring on one or both sides in varying degrees – not associated with hearing loss.Adult dissatisfaction with previous ear surgery.Find out the criteria for being an ear surgery candidate, and related information, from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.Ear ReshapingIf disﬁgured ears bother you or your child, you may consider plastic surgery. Ear surgery, or otoplasty, can improve the shape, position or proportion of the ear. It creates a natural shape, while bringing balance and proportion to the ears and face. Correction of even minor deformities can have profound beneﬁts to appearance and self-esteem.Find out if you or your child are good ear surgery candidates, and related information, from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.Eyelid SurgeryEyelid surgery – or blepharoplasty – improves the appearance of the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. It gives a rejuvenated appearance to the surrounding area of your eyes, making you look more rested and alert.Treatable conditions:Upper eyelid surgery can remove excess fatty deposits that appear as puffiness in the upper eyelids.Loose or sagging skin that creates folds or disturbs the natural contour of the upper eyelid, sometimes impairing vision, can be treated by eyelid lift surgery.Lower eyelid blepharoplasty can remove excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid.Bags under the eyes can be corrected by blepharoplasty.Lower eyelid surgery can correct droopiness of the lower eyelids, showing white below the iris (colored portion of the eye).Additional information is available from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.FaceliftsTechnically known as rhytidectomy, facelifts are surgically performed to improve visible signs of aging in the face and neck, such as:Sagging in the midface.Deep creases below the lower eyelids.Deep creases along the nose extending to the corner of the mouth.Fat that has fallen or is displaced.Loss of muscle tone in the lower face may create jowls.Loose skin and excess fatty deposits under the chin and jaw can make even a person of normal weight appear to have a double chin.More information about facelifts is available from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and a Kelsey-Seybold plastics surgeon.Brow/Forehead LiftIf you are bothered by expression lines or other signs of aging in the brow region, a brow lift (also known as a forehead lift) may be right for you. A brow lift:Minimizes the creases that develop across the forehead, or those that occur high on the bridge of the nose between the eyes.Improves frown lines – vertical creases that develop between the eyebrows.Repositions a low or sagging brow that is hooding the upper eyelid.Raises the eyebrows to a more alert and youthful position.More information is available from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.Nose Reshaping (Rhinoplasty)Rhinoplasty or nose surgery, sometimes referred to as “nose reshaping” or a “nose job,” improves the appearance and proportion of your nose, enhancing facial harmony and self confidence.
