Rhinoplasty: Rhinoplasty is often called a nose job. Rhinoplasty is a very rewarding and very finesse surgery that involves improving the outer appearance of the nose and possibly adjusting some of the internal aspects of the nose as well. Rhinoplasty requires about 1 week of recovery time, following which patients will have their nose cast removed and will be able to go back to work. Final results will continue to emerge as the swelling and scarring heals and settles in the following weeks and months. Facelift: The facelift remains a popular choice amongst the aging baby-boomer population. A Facelift addresses concerns with sagging and loose skin and can help to naturally tighten and smooth the overall appearance of the skin and face. A Facelift usually requires about 2 weeks of recovery time before patients return to their usual routine. Blepharoplasty: Blepharoplasty can also be called eyelid surgery and can address the loose, hanging skin above the eye or the pockets of fat that bulge out below the eye. Blepharoplasty is a common choice amongst middle-aged men and women alike who usually begin to notice the signs of aging around their eyes first. Blepharoplasty requires about 1 week off to recover, as the stitches typically come out on Day 5. Neck Lift: The neck lift surgery is a highly sought-after procedure that addresses the loose, hanging skin of the neck that typically begins to show up as a result of aging and heredity. It is often recommended to combine a neck lift with a facelift in order to have a seamless, smooth result from the neck upwards.
Brow Lift: A brow lift helps to open up sleepy, tired-looking eyes and frame the face so it appears more open instead of heavy. A brow lift is often performed in conjunction with a facelift and/or eyelid surgery to provide a natural, rested, and more youthful overall appearance. Chin Implant: Chin Implant (also known as chin augmentation) is the perfect surgical procedure to add contour and definition to the jaw line. A chin implant will help balance the face and create a stronger look where there once was a weak or receding chin. Although more popular among men, a properly sized chin implant is also a great choice for women if they also need more structure added to define their face. Chin implant surgery is simple and easy, involving a small incision underneath the chin into which the implant is placed. The stitches will come out on Day 5, and most people return to their usual schedule. The scar is small and heals almost imperceptibly. Otoplasty: Otoplasty is ear surgery that involved ear pinning or ear re-shaping to correct protruding or irregularly formed ears. Otoplasty can provide a great boost in self-esteem for patients who have been teased about their ears as a child or still attempt to cover their ears as an adult. The ear surgery can be performed in a day, and stitches come out around Day 5 after the main healing has occurred. Hair Transplant: Hair Transplants are rising in popularity with the new revolutionary hair restoration technology now available on the market. Neograft Hair Restoration technology means successful and effective hair transplant without major surgery and the resulting scars of the past. Neograft Hair Transplant can be done in a day and does not require the patient to go under general anaesthesia. Using the FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) method, the follicles of hair are harvested from the donor site and replanted where the patient is experiencing hair thinning. The whole process takes up to 1 year to see the full growth and results; however, patients say it is well worth the wait!
