Facelift surgery is used particularly for severe cases of skin sagging and wrinkling. It is considered to provide the most extensive measure of correcting any imperfections in skin structure which is a result of aging. It removes or tightens loose skin, lift fat tissues, and tighten facial muscles. This enhancement requires general or a sedative anesthesia. The degree of invasiveness has provided dramatic results, although with the presence of risks and possible complications.
A facelift can be performed together with nose surgery, eyelid surgery, brow lift surgery or a forehead lift. All these procedures will give the face an overall rejuvenated look as the skin and all other structures underneath are smoothly repositioned. This requires a careful technique that only experienced hands and an eye for the aesthetics will be able to create.
Blepharoplasty Surgery is also known as an eyelid lift and it involves the removal of the skin in order to add or reduce fats underneath. Blepharoplasty can be done either on the upper or lower lids. This procedure is done to improve blocked vision due to heavy hooding of the lids, lessen puffiness, and correct an aged appearance.
A lower blepharoplasty is performed to reduce wrinkling, improve the shape of the lower lid, and remove excess skin and fat. The surgeon may also tighten the area to correct any sagging or drooping which can make a person appear old and tired. In some cases adding fat may also be done particularly on patients who had a hollowed out appearance.
In this procedure the surgeon creates an incision across the natural fold of the upper eyelid in which the structural changes will be created. But the surgeon will position it in a way that the incision line is concealed well along the crease line. The incisions will be made with tiny stitches that will leave a nearly invisible scar.
As for the lower eyelid surgery the incision is made just below the lashes along the natural crease. The surgeon removes or redistributes excess fat, muscles and sagged skin. A laser may also be used to remove excess tissue to reduce bruising and swelling.
The procedure only involves minimal pain that will be easily relieved with an analgesic. Healing will also start within days, but there will be some degree of risk.
The results of eyelid surgery will be long lasting. This procedure will only be done just once. But there are cases when the brows drop or descend causing the excess skin to appear yet again as a result of saggy skin of the upper eyelid. But in this case a second blepharoplasty doesn’t necessarily have to be done, a brow lift would be more appropriate.
Torn or split earlobes can be a result of trauma after wearing heavy earrings for a long period of time. This can cause the lobes to be completely torn or widen the area of the piercing. This problem is common both in men and women.
You might want to be careful when choosing your ear accessories, because these might be too heavy for your ears.The thing with your earlobe is that once stretching or tearing occurs, the only way to repair it would be through surgery.
The procedure is straightforward as it basically involves having to sew the skin back together. But the surgeon would also have to excise torn edges and sew the fresh edges together to create a more aesthetically pleasing result. It is pretty much uncomplicated and it is carried out under local anaesthesia.
Thread Lift Surgery
Thread Lift Surgery is a minimally invasive technique and alternative to traditional facelift surgery. It creates a rejuvenated appearance with the help of very fine surgical threads. It can lift areas such as the brows, jowls, cheeks and even the neck. The skin and underlying soft tissues are made to be elevated as the threads are anchored on the strong tissues.
However, the procedure creates less dramatic results and is only appropriate for those who are showing minimal to moderate signs of aging. Thread lift creates subtle changes but significant improvements. It creates a more natural appearance compared to some open facelift results. If you want to maintain the results or enhance them over the years, you can have additional stitches put in.
Otoplasty is a procedure is designed mainly for children who are born with rather significantly protruding or congenitally prominent ears, although adults can undergo this corrective ear surgery as well. But it is often advised for younger children to avoid being the subject of bullying.
The appearance of your ears is determined primarily on the way it harmonizes with your head, and other structures of the face. For most people the ideal form would be ears that lie close to the head which extends from the level of the brow to the base of the nose.
Most parents are concerned about the risks involved, especially when they come in with their young children. But the risks involved with this procedure are fairly minimal. Infections are rare and any possibility of scarring will not be visible since the incision line is well ridden. However, there is a possibility of poor healing or recurrence of deformity.
Insurance policies do not cover this type of surgery in general, especially when it is done due to cosmetic purposes. However, if it is to improve birth defects or to correct a result of a traumatic injury, these procedures may be reimbursable.
