A facelift can be done alone or in conjunction with another procedure such as a brow lift, eyelid surgery or nose reshaping. The best candidate for a facelift is a man or woman whose face and neck have begun to sag, but whose skin still has some elasticity and whose bone structure is strong and well-defined. Most patients are in their forties to sixties, but facelifts can be done successfully on people in their seventies or eighties as well.

read more › A brow lift, also called a forehead lift, is a procedure that lessens creases on the forehead or across the bridge of the nose. As we age, chronic contraction of the muscle above the eyebrows causes deep lines across the forehead and between the eyebrows, or in some cases drooping of the eyebrows. This can make us look tired, sad or even angry all the time. Sometimes this can even cause visual obstruction. A brow lift or forehead lift is a procedure that revitalizes the forehead and eyebrow regions to address these problem areas, giving a more youthful appearance.

A neck lift can involve removing excess skin or fat, or even adding Botox as a filler to plump up the neck. After a neck lift, you will be drowsy due to anesthesia. Have someone to drive you home after the surgery and care for you for a couple days if needed. You can return to work after one to two weeks. You will need to refrain from intense physical activity for a few weeks after surgery while your neck heals, and swelling and bruising subside.

It can involve restructuring the upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both. If you suffer from droopy eyelids, double eyelids or eye bags, eyelid surgery can help. Eyelid surgery can be done alone or with another procedure such as a facelift or a brow lift. Surgery on the upper eyelid might remove fat that makes the eyelid appear puffy, or can remove loose skin that might be affecting vision.

To be a good candidate for rhinoplasty, you need to be healthy and have realistic expectations of the surgery. It is often advised to wait on rhinoplasty until a teenager has completed his or her growth spurts, normally around age 14 or later. Before your surgery, Dr. Appel will examine the structure of your nose and face, and work to understand the results you would like to achieve with surgery.

read more › Chin surgery, also known as mentoplasty, is surgery to reshape the chin either by adding an implant or by reducing the size of the bone. Chin surgery is often done along with nose surgery so the chin and the nose stay in proportion. As we age, our faces lose fullness. Sunken cheeks can make you look tired, and can make other facial features like your nose look out of proportion. Cheek enhancement procedures can add fullness back to your face, restoring a more youthful appearance. Or, if you have always had small cheekbones, cheek implants can help better define them.

Ear surgery can also fix ear tips that that fold down or forward, small ears, or "shell ear" where the ear's natural folds and creases are missing. Surgery can also fix large, stretched or wrinkled earlobes. Also called otoplasty, ear surgery is typically done when a child is between the ages of four and 14. This is because ears are almost fully grown by age four and early surgery can protect a child from years of teasing.

read more › Lip augmentation is a procedure that adds fullness or definition to lips, or gives lips a more desirable shape. In some cases, dermal fillers such as Juvederm can achieve desired results. In other cases, lip augmentation surgery might be more useful in achieving the wanted affect. Lip augmentation using dermal fillers like Juvederm involves only a numbing of the skin and a series of injections. If fat is injected instead of another dermal filler, the procedure will first involve extracting fat from another area of the body through liposuction.

Cosmetic surgery procedures can sculpt and refine your figure, reversing the aesthetic effects of aging and getting you closer to your ideal image. Body plastic surgery procedures are not a substitute for diet, exercise or weight loss. These procedures can, however, help refine your look and give you a more desirable body shape. At Novant Health Appel Plastic Surgery, we take your privacy very seriously.

Liposuction (also called lipoplasty or suction lipectomy) is a procedure to remove excess fat from targeted parts of the body. If you have persistent localized fat deposits that will not go away with a healthy diet and exercise, liposuction could help you. Liposuction is not ideal for obese patients, as it is good for smaller areas of fat and does not take the place of overall weight loss.

read more › Weight loss takes effort and discipline. Whether you have lost weight through diet and exercise or through bariatric surgery, you expect and deserve a body you can be proud of and confident in after your weight loss. Sometimes, massive weight loss can lead to extra skin and sagging breasts. Body contouring after massive weight loss can remove extra skin and reshape breasts. This might involve other procedures including abdominoplasty (to tighten skin on the abdomen), breast lift or breast reduction, male breast reduction, or liposuction (to remove small or irregular fat deposits not eliminated with a healthy diet and exercise, or with bariatric surgery.

If you are a woman looking to restore your body shape after childbirth, a Mommy Makeover might be for you. A Mommy Makeover normally involves multiple procedures, including breast augmentations, liposuctions or tummy tucks. Those procedures can work to restore the shape and firmness of midsections and breasts, the areas of the body normally most affected by pregnancy and childbirth.

The labia are the folds of skin surrounding the vagina. Labiaplasty, or labioplasty, is a cosmetic procedure to shorten or reform either the labia minora, the labia majora or both. Childbirth, aging and weight fluctuations can all change the length of the labia. Some women find this uncomfortable, while others just do not like the visual change.

If you feel your breasts are too big, too small or too saggy, breast surgery could deliver results that would make you feel better about yourself and your appearance.

read more › Breast augmentation, or augmentation mammaplasty, involves increasing or restoring the size or fullness of breasts. Many women are interested in breast augmentation after weight loss or pregnancy, two events that often change the size and shape of the breasts. Breast augmentation is also useful in evening out breasts of different size or in reconstructing breasts after other breast surgery. Many breast augmentation surgeries use implants to increase breast size and volume. Implants can be made of silicone or saline.
