As we age, our faces can often look older than we feel. Skin loses elasticity and gravity starts to take its toll. A face-lift can help redress the balance.
It should not be obvious that you have had the procedure, instead you should look younger, more vital and cheerful. This relatively straightforward operation lifts up the skin, deeper tissues and surrounding muscles, aiming to make your face tighter and smoother, resulting in a more youthful appearance. There are a variety of methods available and our expert cosmetic surgeons will assess your suitability and discuss all options, with the aim of achieving a more youthful, fresher face.
This minimally invasive technique is used to lift and reposition sagging mid-face tissue. The thread lift is a less invasive alternative to a face lift, rejuvenating the face without the risks and downtime associated with surgery.
The thread lift procedure involves very fine surgical sutures being inserted into the soft tissue of the face to lift and support sagging areas. It cannot offer the same results as a full face lift but is a good option for a subtle rejuvenation with very pleasing results.
Rhinoplasty or ‘nose job’ is a cosmetic surgery procedure that reshapes the nose, usually altering the size to restore balance to the facial features. Plastic surgery of the nose can also be a corrective procedure for those who have breathing problems, a birth defect or have suffered nose injuries. Although it is quite a complex procedure, the outcome is generally very effective. Rhinoplasty can change the balance and proportions of the entire face producing a dramatic improvement in how you look and feel. The procedure is performed under a general anaesthetic and usually takes around 2 hours.
Whatever the reason is for you being unhappy with your nose, book in for a consultation to discuss how we can help. Our experienced cosmetic surgeons will be able to advise you on the technique most appropriate to achieve your desired look.
Brow lift surgery is often performed on those people who wish to rejuvenate their face and in particular the area around the eyes. As we get older the skin on the face can start to lose elasticity and this can mean that the skin will sag and droop around the eyes, mouth and jaw line.
Brow lift surgery can help to tighten the skin, reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles and remove the “hoods” that can appear over the eyes and make them look tired and old. This surgery is sometimes combined with eye bag removal surgery, which is performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids or combination of the two to open up the eyes, tighten any loose skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Eye Bag Removal / Blepharoplasty
Inevitably skin loses elasticity as we age. This is often most noticeable around the sensitive skin of the eyes. Eye-bags can appear and the eye area may become puffy and wrinkled, giving the eyes a tired appearance.
In the upper eyelid, excess skin produces a hooded effect, this can also obscure vision, Blepharoplasty is usually straightforward and can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both, in order to rejuvenate the appearance of the area around the eyes.
The surgeon will remove any excess skin and fatty tissue from around the eyes and stretch the skin to smooth out any lines and wrinkles and reduce the “hooded” effect above the eyes before stitching the skin back in to place. This procedure is often performed alone but many people also choose to combine it with a face lift or brow lift.
