What is face enhancement?
As we age, the long term effects of sun exposure and stress can cause deep wrinkles between the nose, mouth and fat deposits around the neck. As a result, our skin becomes thinner, drier, less elastic and starts to sag. Wrinkles begin to develop in the areas such as the forehead and around the eyes and lips.
Face enhancement can considerably reduce these signs of ageing by removing excess fat, tightening the underlying muscles and resurfacing the skin of your face and neck. The end result is that you achieve a youthful and healthy looking face. A wide range of procedures in the area of face enhancement can improve your appearance and include:
Facelift: A surgical procedure that treats the visible signs of ageing such as sagging, drooping and wrinkles of the facial skin and neck. During a facelift surgery, your surgeon may remove and lift some of the fatty tissue underlying the skin. The skin is pulled and the loose skin is removed; the underlying muscle and fascia are tightened; and excess body fat and sagging jowls are removed via suction using special equipment. Facelift can be done alone or in conjunction with other procedures such as brow lift, eyelid surgery or nose reshaping.
Eyelid surgery: Eyelid surgery – also called blepharoplasty – improves the appearance of the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. It is a procedure that reduces drooping upper lids, puffiness above and below the eyes and hanging lower lid skin. During the surgery, incisions are made following the natural lines of your eyelids and through these incisions excess fat is removed and underlying muscles are tightened. Fat pads are reduced where necessary.
Nose reshaping: Nose reshaping – also called rhinoplasty – is a cosmetic procedure to reshape the nose. The procedure involves reducing or increasing nose size, removing a hump, changing the shape of the tip or bridge, narrowing the span of nostrils, or changing the angle between nose and upper lip.
Chin and cheek augmentation: Facial implants are designed to enhance or augment the physical structure of your face. They are used to correct a recessed or small chin, flat cheeks and a weak jaw. Facial implants build up a receding chin, add volume to the cheek bones and reshape the jaw line.
Lip augmentation: This is a type of cosmetic procedure that reduces the fine lines and wrinkles around the lips by using injections or implants to improve the appearance of your lips. Using a small needle, an artificial filler substance may be injected into your lips to achieve fullness.
