The remaining skin is then smoothened, tightened, and secured with sutures or small metal clips. Side effects may include swelling, numbness, bruising, and tightness, but most patients report little pain and only minor discomfort.

Those horizontal lines on our foreheads and creases above our noses can make us look tired, sad, angry, or older than we truly are.

The skin and underlying muscles are lifted and tightened, and the brow heals in the new position. A forehead lift is often combined with other facial cosmetic procedures, including face lift, Botox injections, or blepharoplasty.

Droopy, puffy eyes and eyelids can make you appear tired or older than you are. Cosmetic/reconstructive eyelid surgery, also called blepharoplasty, can restore the skin around your eyes to its natural, youthful appearance and drastically reduce the signs of aging. In some cases, it can even improve vision impaired by sagging lids.
The blepharoplasty procedure begins with an incision made along the eyelid. Excess fat, muscle, and skin are then trimmed away from the eyelid. This outpatient procedure, which typically takes one to three hours, is performed under anesthesia and is considered to be permanent in many cases (although it will not prevent natural aging). Following surgery, side effects such as dry eyes, swelling, bruising, and sensitivity to light may occur, but will fade within 10 days.

Changing the shape or size of your nose may be something you have wanted to do for a long time. Rhinoplasty can make a nose larger or smaller and reshape the bridge, tip, or nostrils. The procedure can also correct crookedness, injuries, and breathing abnormalities that arise due to problems with the internal structures of the nose. The results of rhinoplasty can increase your confidence and improve the balance and proportions of your face.
Performed under either general or local anesthesia, incisions are made along the rims of the nostrils during the rhinoplasty procedure. By placing the incisions inconspicuously, there should be virtually no visible scarring. If the nose is being made smaller, the cartilage is carefully fractured and reset. If a bump is being removed, the excess cartilage is scraped away. Depending on the individual, rhinoplasty takes one to two hours to complete, and complete recovery takes up to a month.
