Your face is the one part of your body that you can’t hide under clothes when having a bad day. It is there for everyone to see and it is the part of you that greets the world. Rightly or wrongly, people judge you by your face and make assumptions about you. This makes us all self conscious about any parts of the face that we are unhappy with. These worries cover many different parts of the face and everyone is different but the areas that are most commonly a worry include a sagging brow, a misshapen nose or just general unhappiness with ageing. Whatever the issue there are many cosmetic surgery options, all of which can be tailored to meet your individual needs.
- Nose Reshaping (Primary Rhinoplasty)
- Lower Eyes
- Brow Lift
- Eye Bag Removal
- Upper Eyes
- Face, Fat Transfer and Brow
With time and natural ageing, we lose collagen in our skin. This, along with the effect of gravity, cause the underlying muscles to sag and stretch and the effect is wrinkling and sagging of the brow. This allows the eyebrows to droop and push down on the eyelids and eventually eyes. The overall effect is to give the face an older, tired look and can even affect vision and cause headaches.
By lifting the brows and therefore the eyelids, a brow lift can reverse the ageing and wrinkled look that develops over time. This in turn opens up the area around the eyes, reversing any visual problems and improves the overall look of the face and brow. You will look fresher, brighter and younger if this is your problem area.
As you get older, the skin around your eyes loses its elasticity, and consequently you may develop loose folds of skin on your upper eyelids along with deep creases beneath your lower lids. Eyelid surgery can eliminate the surplus skin, fat, or both, from around your eyes. It is mainly a cosmetic procedure, but it is also an effective means of enhancing sight in those whose sagging upper eyelids hinder their vision.
Eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty removes fat, excess skin and muscle from the upper and/or lower eyelids.
Combining blepharoplasty with other procedures can be very effective, achieving a more balanced, harmonious and youthful face. Advancements in surgical procedures mean results are now more natural and complications are fewer.
Rhinoplasty (a nose job) is one of the most popular forms of cosmetic surgery to improve and refine the nose. Primary rhinoplasty refers to nose surgery being performed for the first time. The result should be natural, aesthetically pleasing and in proportion to the rest of the face.
Whether you feel your nose is too big or too small; too thick or too thin; too long or too wide; or too crooked, pointy or bulbous; surgery can alter and enhance its size and shape in a number of ways. Rhinoplasty requires careful consideration of all facial features and your surgeon will carry out a thorough consultation and examination in respect of this.
A facelift or ‘rhytidectomy’ is very effective in reversing the signs of ageing. Surgery has moved on considerably from the taught, ‘stretched’ look, and most modern facelifts now carefully manipulate the deeper facial tissues and re-drape the skin to produce a fresher, natural, more youthful appearance.
The classical facelift targets the lower part of the face and the neck, visibly improving the appearance of a slack, loose jaw line, reducing the deposits or folds of fat around the neckline and successfully minimising deep creases between the nose and mouth.
Prominent ear correction, also known as otoplasty or pinnaplasty, is a common operation in the U.K. It is usually done to set prominent ears back closer to the head or to reduce the size of large ears. Most surgeons try to perform the surgery when the child is at an early age to reduce bullying and teasing at school. Pinnaplasty on adults is also performed and there are no additional risks in an older patient.
