read more › The eyes have long been considered a critical feature of a person's character and demeanor. Often considered the "window to your soul, " the eyes are shaped and affected by the tissues surrounding them: the eyelids, cheeks and brow. Aging is characteristically manifested in this area with a progressively "tired" appearance. Blepharoplasty or eyelid lift is a procedure that can helps rejuvenate the periorbital area and eliminates that "tired" appearance. Small incisions are performed in the natural contours around the eyes, which in almost all cases leaves no visible scarring.

read more › The two main causes for this are a lack of the usual cartilage fold in the upper one third and/or an excess of cartilage in the bowl. Otoplasty is a procedure to reshape the deformed cartilage and excise any areas of excessive cartilage. This is done through a well hidden incision behind the ear. Otoplasty is best performed at younger ages when the cartilage is still very soft and malleable. As we age, all cartilage in our body (ribs, discs of the spine, etc.) becomes stiffer and more brittle; this makes re-shaping more difficult and less reliable.

The lips are not only a functional portion of the mouth, but beautiful lips can be a mark of distinction for the face. Along with a person's eyes, the lips portray an individual's expression and mood better than any other part of the body. Think about the many times you focus (consciously or sub-consciously) on someone's lips when they are talking, smiling, frowning, laughing, kissing, etc. Women apply lipstick to help accentuate this very prominent feature of their face - to provide a pleasing color and shape.

It doesn't take long for one to recognize that noses come in all shapes and forms. There are ethnic differences as well. As with any cosmetic procedures, the surgical goal should be for realistic improvements that are balanced, given the limitations of a patient's anatomy. The nose has very unique and specialized anatomy. For sake of clarity, there are two main divisions or parts - the internal and external nose.

read more › The forehead and brow are important components of a younger face. The position of the brow can influence the appearance of the eyes and eyelids. A youthful eye is one that appears "open" and is free of wrinkles. A sagging brow can make the eyes look "tired" and can contribute to the formation of droopy upper eyelid skin. The actual position of the brow varies widely between individuals. Some people have naturally high set brows and others have their brows very close to the upper eyelid margin. However, everyone shares the same enemy of youth - gravity.

read more › Cosmetic surgery of the facial and neck soft tissues (skin, fat, and muscle) can provide dramatic rejuvenation. Most people know these procedures as "facelifts" or "necklifts." Unlike the bones of the face, soft tissues are subject to the forces of gravity with age and to external influences such as the environment (sun) and smoking. With time, facial fat also undergoes "deflation" or involution. These contribute to the descent of the facial skin/fat/muscle as well as wrinkling. Fine wrinkles are often the result of excessive sun exposure; deeper wrinkles are caused by the intermittent contraction of facial muscles causing deep "grooves."
