Facelift surgery removes fine lines and deep-set wrinkles, repositions sagging skin and tissue, eliminates jowls, and adjusts facial contours to restore a more youthful-looking appearance. It works by tightening or removing sagging skin and adjusting the position of the underlying tissues. This process results in a rejuvenated facial contour.
Most patients will recover within two weeks but should avoid certain activities for four to six weeks. Facelift results last years or even decades. If you wish to roll back the clock and tighten the mid and lower regions of your face, a facelift may interest you.

A forehead (or brow) lift is a facial surgery that elevates the position of the eyebrows and smooths wrinkles in the forehead. Brow lift surgery can open sightlines (if sagging brows are putting excess pressure on the upper eyelids), create a more open and friendly appearance, and make you appear years younger. This procedure is commonly combined with facelift surgery for full facial rejuvenation.
Most patients take a week to recover and should avoid vigorous activities for up to four to six weeks. Forehead lift results last for many years; however, this surgery will not stop the aging process, and, eventually, the results will begin to fade. Some patients choose to get a secondary brow lift when that occurs.
Forehead lift surgery can help if you are unhappy with your sagging eyebrows, frown lines, or forehead wrinkles.

Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is a surgical procedure chosen to treat puffiness and drooping skin in the lids above and below the eyes. This procedure can provide a younger-looking and friendlier appearance. Eyelid surgery may also improve sightlines when sagging skin is blocking your vision.
Most patients will need a week of recovery before returning to work. A full recovery may take four to six weeks. With proper care and a healthy lifestyle, the results of an eyelid lift may last years or decades.
Blepharoplasty may be ideal for you if you struggle with baggy or puffy eyelids or want your eyes to look younger.

Rhinoplasty (nose surgery or a ‘nose job’) is a surgical procedure that adjusts the cartilage, bone, and skin in the nose to form a more aesthetically pleasing shape. This procedure can enhance facial symmetry, improve facial contours, and ease breathing capabilities.
The initial recovery usually lasts one to two weeks, with full recovery occurring around four to six weeks. It may take up to a year to see the final results.
The results of rhinoplasty are usually permanent, though the nose will continue to age following the procedure. If you are unhappy with the size, shape, or projection of your nose, nose surgery may help you.

Ear surgery pins the ears closer to the head to reduce their prominence. By repositioning the ears nearer to the scalp, ear surgery (otoplasty) can change the shape and profile of a patient’s head. This can improve their overall appearance and facial symmetry.
The effects of ear surgery are nearly permanent so long as the ears are not subjected to extensive injuries following surgery. If you are uncomfortable with the way your ears project, ear surgery can help.
Ear pinning is one of the few plastic surgery techniques that can be performed on children. Candidates for this surgery can be nearly any age—as long as their ears are fully developed. This usually happens between the ages of four and six.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a neuromodulator used to treat wrinkles and frown lines. This injectable reduces wrinkle formation by preventing muscle contraction. This treatment works by blocking chemical signals to the muscles that commonly cause wrinkles to form on the forehead and around the eyes.
Most patients will not require any downtime following a BOTOX® Cosmetic injection, though patients should expect minor discomfort for an hour following treatment. To be safe, patients should avoid vigorous exercise for 24 hours following the injections.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the most popular non-surgical treatment on the market and is affordable to most patients. The results of BOTOX® Cosmetic can last three to six months depending on the treated area and amount of BOTOX® Cosmetic injected.
If you are developing wrinkles around your eyes or on your forehead, BOTOX® Cosmetic injections may help you stave off the effects of aging.
