Facelift

As we age, our facial skin loosens and wrinkles, and the muscles of the neck may weaken as well. Anything that will cause the skin to lose elasticity will hasten the process, including sun exposure, weight fluctuations and heredity. A facelift can address these problems by firming and tightening the skin of the face and neck all in one step. It is most effective for the lower face (jowls and neck). A double chin can be improved at the same time by a surgical procedure called supplemental lipectomy. To effect a more complete facial rejuvenation, facelifts are frequently done in conjunction with other procedures such as upper eyelid blepharoplasty and lower eyelid blepharoplasty. Your surgeon may also recommend injections of cosmetic fillers or for reducing fine lines for deep creases in your forehead or frown lines between your eyebrows.

Contrary to popular opinion, the texture of the skin will not be changed by a facelift. Acne scars, age spots, fine lines and smoker’s creases will soon return to their original texture, no matter how tight the skin is pulled. A facelift will not give someone beautiful skin unless they have beautiful skin to begin with. However, skin treatments such as laser resurfacing or chemical resurfacing can be used in combination with a facelift to improve the texture of the skins and smooth skin wrinkles.

Incisions usually begin above the hairline at the temples, follow the natural line in front of the ear, curve behind the earlobe into the crease behind the ear, and into or along the lower scalp.

Facial, neck tissue and muscle may be separated; fat may be trimmed or suctioned and underlying muscle may be tightened.

After deep tissues are tightened, the excess skin is pulled up and back, trimmed and sutured into place.
Most of the scars will be hidden within your hair and in the normal creases of your skin. Your new face will emerge soon after.

 

Benefits of a facelift

While a facelift cannot stop the aging process, it can often make a person appear to be a decade younger than their actual age.

Best candidates for a facelift

Both men and women have facelifts, with the best candidates being those whose face and neck has excess fat, lines and has began to sag. The average age for patients are 40-50 years, but older patients have also had successful facelifts.

In general, the best candidates for facelift are:

- People with good facial skin elasticity

- In good physical health

- Psychologically stable

- Non-smokers

- Wanting to improve the appearance of their face and neck

- Well informed in regard to the procedure’s outcome

- Having realistic expectations

And generally have:

- a deep line, or fold, running from the corner of your nose to the corner of your mouth.

- jowls, or loss of a well-defined jaw line associated with youthfulness.

- deep wrinkles in the cheeks and sagging of the “highlight” areas of the cheekbones.

- loose skin, wrinkles, vertical “cords” or excess fatty tissue in the neck.

Preparation for a Facelift

Before you undergo a facelift, it is important for you to discuss any medical conditions that you have and to tell your surgeon about any medications that you are taking including any herbal or other non-prescription ones. If your surgeon decides that you can have a facelift, discuss the procedure thoroughly with him or her before deciding if you want to go through with the procedure. Even though your surgeon says that you may does not mean that you must decide to have a facelift. You may still change your mind even after discussing the procedure with your surgeon.

The surgeon will consult with you either by email or on the phone prior to your departure to understand your requests fully, and will also detail the procedure, benefits and risks and answer any questions you have. He may require additional information from you before booking the procedure – including a photo, and a doctor’s medical report. The assessment with the surgeon will give you a detailed understanding of the treatment – the extent of surgery, your health evaluation, your expectations and exactly where the areas of the face will be treated. When you are happy with what has been discussed, and have signed a booking form for the operation, the surgery will be booked at a date agreed.

Your surgeon should be able to answer any questions that you have about facelifts including questions about what to expect during and after a facelift and the complications or problems that sometimes occur with facelifts. You may also take information from this website to your appointment to discuss with him.

You will then have another consultation with the surgeon when you arrive at your destination, where he will have a physical evaluation of the areas to be treated. At this appointment you and your surgeon will discuss your goals, and last queries you have and finalize the plan for surgery.From this examination, he can determine the best procedure to use, and then explain it to you in detail, including the benefits and limitations. The surgeon may also recommend a combination of the facelift with eyelid blepharoplasty or submental liposuction, for a better facial profile.

It is important to stress the importance of not smoking before a facelift procedure. Smoking can cause problems with circulation and make complications more likely, including post-operative chest procedures.

Surgical Procedure

The classic facelift, or SMAS, is recommended by the surgeons. This is performed by making an incision at the temples behind the hairline. The incision typically extends downward, along the natural creases in the skin, in front or on the edge of the ear, in the crease of the ear lobe, and behind the ear. Making the incision in the natural creases helps hide scarring after surgery. The surgeon then separates the skin and muscles of the face from the deeper facial tissues.

In some cases the skin is removed, in others the skin and muscle tissues are reshaped. The underlying muscle may be tightened with the skin, or separately. After the tightening or removal of excess skin, the skin is re-draped and sutured or stapled in place.

Facelift patients normally undergo general anesthesia. Time in surgery is approximately 90 to 120 minutes. In some cases, drainage tubes are left in place under certain areas of the skin for several days to reduce post-surgical swelling. Depending upon the extent of the procedure, a facelift may be performed under local anesthesia—while you are numbed and sedated, but awake, or a light general anesthetic, where you are lightly sleeping. You should discuss anesthesia options with your plastic surgeon and the anesthesiologist.

You will be required to stay at least one night in hospital.

Recovery and Post-op care

After surgery, patients may experience moderate swelling of the eyelids and other facial areas. Immediately after surgery a large fluffy dressing is usually applied. It is removed typically within one day after surgery and may be replaced with an elastic wrap. Any stitches will be removed after a few more days. There is normally some discomfort following facelift surgery, which can be managed with medications. The skin may feel dry and feel rough for a few months.

You will be moving around in a couple of days, but we advise you to relax for a week or so. Strenuous activity should be avoided until the bruising and swelling has subsided. This can take four to six weeks; however, within two weeks the swelling should be reduced enough to engage in some social activities. Many patients prefer to delay significant social activities for four weeks after surgery.

We provide excellent post-care support, with follow-up visits and programs to assist your recovery. If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know and we will schedule an appointment with the surgeon. View our recommendations for post-operative recovery.

Recommended length of stay on holiday

2 weeks is the surgeon’s recommendation, and you will have regular check-ups throughout your holiday.

During your recovery time, and to achieve the best results, we suggest you take part in other programs we offer – pampering programs, or gentle exercise and yoga classes. At all times, we take special care of you to ensure the right programs for your situation. Depending on how you feel, you may also like to take a tour around Malaysia or neighboring Singapore.

Other recommended procedures with a Facelift

Many people who travel to Malaysia have more than one procedure because of the cost advantages and also for a more balanced look.

A facelift is often done with other treatments, such as nose reshaping and eyelid surgery.

The “Ultimate Makeover” includes liposuction with a choice of other surgical and non-surgical procedures. Enquire for more information.

Your new look

Your facelift will make you look younger and fresher, and turn back the clock between 10-20 years. The small scars that you will have will be hidden by your hair or in the natural creases of your face and ears.

However, having a facelift will not stop aging and gravity, and some people repeat the procedure (secondary facelift) some time down the line.

A facelift is meant for folds and creases of laxity and not meant to improve the appearance of wrinkle lines. Wrinkle lines may be improved after plastic surgery by skin resurfacing techniques, such as laser skin resurfacing, chemical peels, or microdermabrasion. Wrinkles may further improve with the use of injectables such as collagen or Botox. Loss of volume and folds including nasolabial folds may be treated with injectables such as restylane to produce a fully satisfactory outcome. Please view our non-invasive facial rejuvenation treatments.

Preconditions and Risks

We minimize risks and complications by selecting patients carefully and always having the most skilled surgeons, physicians and nurses carry out procedures. However, despite the highest standards, complications can occur. They are rare, and most patients will not have complications, but if you have concerns about possible complications, please discuss these with your doctor.

Smoking reduces blood flow to areas of the facial skin, so you shouldn’t smoke a month before and a month after surgery. Stopping smoking will help the healing process. One in ten smokers will experience skin death at the incision site if they continue to smoke after surgery.

Please read the preconditions and risks page before embarking on any surgery.

Eye Lift

As we age, excess skin forms in the eye area and the skin loses elasticity. Fatty tissue can accumulate under the skin. Your eyes will “look older” because these aging processes leave the eyes appearing tired, wrinkled, or puffy. Even with a good skincare and eyecare regimen, wrinkles, puffiness, and drooping eyelids will catch up to you. Genetic factors and body chemistry can cause these aging effects in younger people. Eye lifts may restore a youthful and refreshed appearance to your eyes, and it will open up the eyes by correcting sagging upper lids and puffy bags under your eyes.

This is a very popular procedure for Asian eyes, as it can significantly change the appearance of the eyes by opening them up to appear brighter and larger.

Before surgery, the surgeon marks the incision sites, following the natural lines and creases of the upper and lower eyelids. Underlying fat, along with excess skin and muscle, can be removed during the operation. In a transconjunctival blepharoplasty (lower eyelid bag removal), a tiny incision is made inside the lower eyelid and fat is removed with fine forceps. No skin is removed, and the incision is closed with dissolving sutures.

Best candidates for a eye lift

Both men and women have eye lifts, with the best candidates being those whose eyes are droopy and baggy. but this differs with the person – there have been many cases of older and younger clients.

The best candidates for blepharoplasty are physically healthy, emotionally stable, and well-informed about the procedure. Ideal candidates are typically at least 35, but this differs with the person – there have been many cases of older and younger clients.

Candidates may be excluded if they suffer from any of the following conditions: dry eye, high blood pressure, hypothyroidism, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, glaucoma, or Graves’ disease. Personal anatomy issues, including bone and supporting structure, may also affect your candidacy.

Surgical Procedure

Incisions are made along the line creases of the upper eyelid and possibly along the outer lower rim of the eye’s skin. When removing fatty tissue, but not skin, the surgeon may perform a transconjunctival blepharoplasty with an incision inside the lower rim of the eye’s skin (for eye bags and excess fatty tissue removal). These incisions often reach the outer corners of the eyes. The surgeon then divides the fatty tissue and muscle from the skin so that excess skin, fat, or muscle can be removed. The procedure leaves no visible scars as it is hidden within the natural creases of the upper eyelid and for the lower eyelid, it is completely hidden.

The blepharoplasty procedure is often performed under local anesthesia—while you are sedated, numbed, and awake—in an outpatient surgery center, surgeon’s office, or hospital. General anesthesia (while you are asleep) may be used. Be sure to discuss the appropriate type of anesthesia with your doctor and the anesthesiologist. Depending upon the number of eyelids and extent of the procedure, time in surgery may be up to three hours. Patients return home typically within hours of the surgery.

You will be required to stay at least one night in hospital.

Recovery and Post-op care

The eyes will often be lubricated and covered with bandages after surgery. Pain and discomfort can be managed with oral medications. You will also be prescribed an antibiotic to prevent infection. Additionally, you will receive a list of instructions to follow for a number of days, including:

  • the proper way to clean your eyes
  • use of cold compresses (for bruising and swelling)
  • use of lubricating eye drops (for itchiness or irritations)
  • head elevation (prevention of blood clots in the upper regions of the face)
  • no makeup
  • no alcohol
  • no television
  • no contact lenses

Stitches are removed about a week after surgery. Bruising and swelling will continue to subside after stitches are removed. Sunglasses and a protective sun block are required for several weeks. Normal activities can be resumed after about ten days. Strenuous activities such as lifting, bending, or exercise can be resumed after about three weeks.

We provide excellent post-care support, with follow-up visits and programs to assist your recovery. If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know and we will schedule an appointment with the surgeon. View our recommendations for post-operative recovery.

Recommended length of stay on holiday

10 days is the surgeon’s recommendation, and you will have regular check-ups throughout your holiday.

Other recommended procedures with an Eye lift

Many people who travel to Malaysia have more than one procedure because of the cost advantages and also for a more balanced look.

An eyelid lift will not remove crow’s feet or other wrinkles nor eliminate dark circles under your eyes, or lift sagging eyebrows. Other complementary procedures, including a facelift or a brow lift/forehead lift will minimize wrinkles, and non-surgical treatments such as dermabrasion and chemical peels as well as Botox will further brighten the appearance and improve skin quality. Please view our non-invasive facial rejuvenation treatments.

Beautiful You Holidays offer great packages for combined procedures. Contact us today for more information and a price.

Your new look

Eyelid surgery will ‘turn back the clock’ by opening your eyes, and make you look more youthful and energetic.

Preconditions and Risks

Following surgery, patients may experience tearing, itchy, burning eyes, dry eyes, light sensitivity, and blurred or double vision, which can persist for several days. These complications can be relieved with lubricating eye drops. There will also be some swelling around the eyes. Scarring is another possible complication. Sometimes patients will have difficulty closing their eyes when asleep: although very uncommon, this complication can be permanent. The lower lids may appear to be pulled down: this rare condition, called ectropion, may require additional surgery. There also may be some asymmetry to the eyes.

We minimize risks and complications by selecting patients carefully and always having the most skilled surgeons, physicians and nurses carry out procedures. However, despite the highest standards, complications can occur. They are rare, and most patients will not have complications, but if you have concerns about possible complications, please discuss these with your doctor.

Forehead or Brow Lift

A forehead lift improves the appearance of a person’s face by restoring youth and vitality to the area above the eyes. It will minimize lines that make a person appear tired, sleepy and even angry.

It is often performed with a facelift or an eye lift to provide a balanced, smoother look to the face. Your surgeon will recommend what procedures are best for your needs and goals.

browlift_1
An incision is usually made across the top of the head, just behind the hairline.
browlift_2
Forehead skin is gently lifted and portions of facial muscle and excess skin are removed. The incision is then closed with stitches or clips.

 

Best candidates for a Browlift

Most browlift patients are between the ages of 40 and 70. The best candidates are healthy people seeking a solution to unwanted furrows, deep forehead lines, and wish to look more alert and refreshed. Other good candidates may include younger people suffering from premature aging signs such as drooping eyebrows. Browlifts may be used in conjunction with hair transplants to treat a receding hairline or baldness; or with fat transfers to create volume; or with an eye lift or a facelift to achieve a fully satisfactory outcome.

Preparation for a Browlift

Before you undergo a browlift, it is important for you to discuss any medical conditions that you have and to tell your surgeon about any medications that you are taking including any herbal or other non-prescription ones.

Surgical Procedure

A browlift usually requires only local anesthesia, though occasionally general anesthesia. You should discuss the appropriate type of anesthesia with your doctor and the anesthesiologist. Time in surgery is about one to two hours, if it involves only a single procedure.

Before the procedure, your hair is trimmed and tied back from the area where the incision will be made. The doctor will choose the least visible area to make the incision, such as along your hairline, within the scalp, or along the natural bone structure lines on the scalp.

For this procedure, one long incision is made. The incision begins at one ear, cross the forehead region, and ends at the other ear. The forehead skin is lifted, excess tissue is removed, muscles are repositioned or removed, and the eyebrows are lifted. Extra skin in any of these areas will then be trimmed. The incision is stitched or clipped and gauze is applied. A bandage is often wrapped around the head following the procedure. Bandages may be removed within two days of surgery. Stitches and clips are generally removed within two weeks. This method will minimize scarring as the incision is concealed within the hair.

Recovery and Post-op care

After a browlift, you may experience:

  • Temporary discomfort and numbness. This is managed with medication.
  • Headache. This can be a side effect from anesthesia
  • Swelling. This is managed with head elevation and typically subsides within a week.
  • Unusual sensations, which may include itching or lack of sensation at the incision line. This symptom normally disappears within six months.
  • Hair Loss. Regrowth usually occurs in one to three months.

Bandages will be removed after a few days and any stitches will be removed after a few more days.

You will be moving around in a couple of days, but we advise you to relax for a week or so.

We provide excellent post-care support, with follow-up visits and programs to assist your recovery. If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know and we will schedule an appointment with the surgeon. View our recommendations for post-operative recovery.

Preconditions and Risks

Some patients may not be able to move their eyebrows or forehead. Additional surgery may correct this problem. Scar formation and permanent hair loss within the scar area may occur. Permanent lack of sensation at the incision line is also a rare complication. Infection, bleeding, and other minor complications are possible.

We minimize risks and complications by selecting patients carefully and always having the most skilled surgeons, physicians and nurses carry out procedures.

Rhinoplasty

The development of rhinoplasty occurred primarily as a plastic surgery technique to restore a proportional nose shape, or to correct for constricted breathing, whether after injury or due to a birth defect. In addition to these corrective procedures, surgeons now use this extremely popular cosmetic procedure to perform subtle aesthetic changes to nose size and shape of the tip, the nostrils or the bridge.

rhinoplasty_1
If your nostrils are too wide, the surgeon can remove small wedges of skin form their base, bringing them closer together.
rhinoplasty_2
Incisions are made inside the nostrils or at the base of the nose, where access to the cartilage and bone allows for sculpting.
rhinoplasty_3
The hump is removed using a chisel or a rasp, then brings the nasal bones together to form a narrower bridge. The nose tip is reshaped by trimming the cartilage.
rhinoplasty_4
The angle between the nose and upper lip is improved after trimming of the septum.
rhinoplasty_5
A splint made of tape and an overlay of plastic, metal, or plaster is applied to help the bone and cartilage to maintain their new shape.

 

Best candidates for Nose reshaping

You may be a good candidate for rhinoplasty if the nose you were born with makes you self conscious or unhappy. Other candidates may be unhappy with how their nose has aged. Even slight changes to the shape of the nose can have a dramatic effect on appearance and can change how people interact with you. Plastic surgery can reshape deformities, reshape changes from aging and other causes, and restore balance.

Expectations are an important element in what makes a good candidate. The best nose surgery candidates simply want to improve the nose appearance, but do not seek perfection. The ideal candidate should not expect rhinoplasty to transform them into someone else. The best candidates are well adjusted and otherwise happy with their lives.

Many young people consider rhinoplasty; however, the procedure should wait until after the teenage growth period that occurs in the mid-teens. This growth period normally occurs from ages 14 to 15 for girls and somewhat later for boys.

Preparation for nose surgery

Before you undergo nose surgery, it is important for you to discuss any medical conditions that you have and to tell your surgeon about any medications that you are taking including any herbal or other non-prescription ones.

Surgical Procedure

Rhinoplasty is a nose-reshaping plastic surgery that can be performed under local anesthesia or under general anesthesia. Cosmetic nose surgery normally requires an hour or two in surgery, depending on the amount of nose reshaping to be done. There are two types of methods: “open” versus “closed”, and is most apparent when it comes to incisions and reshaping.

Closed Rhinoplasty – For minor reshaping, many surgeons make incisions within the nose. The skin of the nose is then separated from the bone and cartilage, which forms its supporting framework. Once exposed, bone and cartilage can be removed, reshaped, augmented, or rearranged to achieve the desired new shape. For example, to make the nose narrower, cartilage can be removed down the front spine of the nose. After the cartilage and bone have been changed, the nose tissues are re-draped over the newly shaped framework and the incisions are closed.

Open Rhinoplasty – For major nose reshaping, the incisions are not made inside the nose. Instead, incisions are made in the vertical strip of skin separating the nostrils. This is called the columella. This more complex procedure is referred to as “open” rhinoplasty. You will be required to stay at least one night in hospital.

Recovery and Post-op care

Immediately after the incisions have been closed, soft puffy material may be used inside the nose to maintain the structure along the nasal air passages. Also after surgery, an external splint is applied to help the nose maintain its new shape. The splint provides some additional protection for the nose during the healing process. The external splint is typically worn for six to eight days.

The nose area will be bruised and puffy after surgery. This bruising may extend to the eyes and all areas of the face. If there is any discomfort after surgery, it will be lessened with medication prescribed by the surgeon. You may have some bruising and swelling for a few days to a week after the surgery, particularly around the eyes and nose. Common post-surgery instructions include a cold compress to reduce swelling, pain medication to reduce discomfort, and elevating your head for the first 24 hours.

Most of the swelling and bruising should disappear after seven days. You may experience limited bleeding the first few days. Normally after a few more days, all stuffing, splints, and other post-surgical dressings are removed. There will be some internal swelling within the nose for several months, but this will not be noticeable to anyone but you and the surgeon.

It is imperative that you do not bump your nose.

Avoid any trauma to the nose during the first week after surgery. Even blowing your nose should be avoided for the first seven days.

You will be moving around in a couple of days, but we advise you to relax for a week or so.

We provide excellent post-care support, with follow-up visits and programs to assist your recovery. If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know and we will schedule an appointment with the surgeon. View our recommendations for post-operative recovery.

Recommended length of stay on holiday

3 weeks is the surgeon’s recommendation and the guarantee period, where you will have regular check-ups.

During your recovery time, and to achieve the best results, we suggest you take part in other programs we offer – pampering programs, or gentle exercise and yoga classes. At all times, we take special care of you to ensure the right programs for your situation. Depending on how you feel, you may also like to take a tour around Malaysia or neighboring Singapore.

Other recommended procedures with Nose reshaping

Many people who travel to Malaysia have more than one procedure because of the cost advantages and also for a more balanced look.

Nose reshaping is often done with other treatments, such as eyelid surgery, cheek and chin augmentation, to give a more balanced profile. Also, other skin treatments – either chemical peels or laser can greatly improve the overall skin texture and minimize lines to give a refreshed appearance of the face. Please view our non-invasive facial rejuvenation treatments.

Beautiful You Holidays offer great packages for combined procedures. Contact us today for more information and a price.

Your new look

After the bruising and swelling subsides after the first few weeks, your new look will emerge. The result of nose reshaping is permanent.

Sometimes treating one area may cause an overall imbalanced appearance. If you are having the rhinoplasty procedure, you may also need to consider other facial procedures to achieve balance and proportion. For example, chin augmentation is often performed with rhinoplasty. If you decide you need the additional procedure later, the two procedures are more expensive than if you had them at the same time.

Facial Implants

Plastic surgeons use facial implants to improve and enhance facial contours. Frequently, these implants will help provide a more harmonious balance to your face and features so that you feel better about the way you look. It is particularly popular for patients who have had nose reshaping, as the size of the chin and cheeks affects the look of the nose.

There are many implants available, manufactured from a variety of materials. They may help strengthen a jaw line or bring the chin or cheekbones into balance with the rest of the face.

Benefits of Facial Implants

Facial implants can enhance your appearance and bolster your self esteem. If you are looking for improvement, not perfection, in your appearance and are realistic in your expectations, you may find that a facial implant is the right choice for you.

Such implants may be used to bring better balance to the features of a younger patient. For instance, a teenage girl may want her nose reshaped or her chin brought forward so that these traits are better proportioned. The more mature patient may choose to have an implant placed in conjunction with another cosmetic procedure. For example, during a facelift, a patient may wish to have implants placed over the cheekbones to help restore a more youthful appearance. Implants may also be selected to fill out a face that appears “sunken” or tired.

Preparation for facial implants

Before you undergo facial implant surgery, it is important for you to discuss any medical conditions that you have and to tell your surgeon about any medications that you are taking including any herbal or other non-prescription ones. If your surgeon decides that you can have facial implant surgery, discuss the procedure thoroughly with him or her before deciding if you want to go through with the procedure. Even though your surgeon says that you may does not mean that you must decide to have facial implant surgery. You may still change your mind even after discussing the procedure with your surgeon.

The surgeon will consult with you either by email or on the phone prior to your departure to understand your requests fully, and will also detail the procedure, benefits and risks and answer any questions you have. He may require additional information from you before booking the procedure – including a photo, and a doctor’s medical report. The assessment with the surgeon will give you a detailed understanding of the treatment – the extent of surgery, your health evaluation, your expectations and exactly where the areas of the face will be treated. When you are happy with what has been discussed, and have signed a booking form for the operation, the surgery will be booked at a date agreed.

Your surgeon should be able to answer any questions that you have about facial implant surgeries including questions about what to expect during and after facial implant surgery and the complications or problems that sometimes occur with facial implant surgeries. You may also take information from this website to your appointment to discuss with him.

You will then have another consultation with the surgeon when you arrive at your destination, where he will have a physical evaluation of the areas to be treated. At this appointment you and your surgeon will discuss your goals, and last queries you have and finalize the plan for surgery.From this examination, he can determine the best procedure to use, and then explain it to you in detail, including the benefits and limitations. The surgeon may also recommend a combination of the upper and lower eyelid blepharoplasty or submental liposuction, for a better facial profile.

It is important to stress the importance of not smoking before facial implant surgery procedure. Smoking can cause problems with circulation and make complications more likely, including post-operative chest procedures.

Surgical Procedure

Chin Augmentation

Insertion of a chin implant may take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour. During the procedure, the surgeon selects the proper size and shape implant to enhance your appearance and inserts it into a pocket over the front of the jawbone. The small incision to create the pocket and insert the implant is placed inside the mouth (along the lower lip) or in the skin just under the chin area.

Usually, the chin is taped after surgery to minimize swelling and discomfort. Sutures in the skin will be removed in five to seven days. If an intra-oral incision is used, the sutures will dissolve.

Cheek Augmentation

Cheek implant surgery usually takes about 30 to 45 minutes. When cheek implants are being placed in conjunction with another cosmetic procedure, such as a facelift, forehead lift or eyelid surgery, the implants may be inserted through the incisions made for those procedures. Otherwise, an incision will be made either inside your upper lip or your lower eyelid. A pocket is then formed and an implant is inserted.

After surgery, a dressing will be applied to minimize discomfort and swelling. The severity and duration of such side effects may vary, especially if another cosmetic procedure was performed at the same time.

Jaw Augmentation

Insertion of a jaw implant usually takes about one to two hours. Internal incisions are made on either side of the lower lip to provide access for creating a pocket into which the lower-jaw implant can be inserted. Dissolving sutures are used to close the incisions.

Recovery and Post-Op Care

You will experience discomfort and swelling in the affected area for several days. It’s normal to experience some temporary difficulty with smiling and talking. Black and blue marks may be visible around the area of implant. Your plastic surgeon will instruct you about dental hygiene, eating and any restrictions to your activities after surgery.

During recovery from cheek and jaw implants, you should be aware that your ability to move your mouth and lips may be diminished temporarily. Stitches used to close the incisions inside your mouth usually dissolve within about 10 days.

We provide excellent post-care support, with follow-up visits and programs to assist your recovery. If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know and we will schedule an appointment with the surgeon. View our recommendations for post-operative recovery.

Your new look

An accurate evaluation of your appearance may not be available for weeks, or perhaps even months. Give yourself plenty of time to get used to your new look.

People will notice a better-looking you – but will not be able to point out your changes.

Preconditions and Risks

A facial implant can shift slightly out of alignment and a second operation my be necessary to replace it in its proper position. Infection can occur with any operation. If infection were to occur around a facial implant and did not clear up after treatment with antibiotics, the implant might have to be temporarily removed and replaced at a later time. Other, less-frequent risks may be associated with certain implants. Be sure to ask your surgeon for a description of the risks associated with the procedure in which you are interested.

We minimize risks and complications by selecting patients carefully and always having the most skilled surgeons, physicians and nurses carry out procedures. However, despite the highest standards, complications can occur. They are rare, and most patients will not have complications, but if you have concerns about possible complications, please discuss these with your doctor.

Ear Surgery

Ear surgery is a procedure designed to set prominent ears closer to the head, and is a popular procedure, as large prominent ears are very obvious and cause embarrassment. Anyone can have this procedure once ear growth is complete, from 4 years old onwards.

The procedure can be performed under local or general anesthetic, and generally requires one night in hospital. A headband is worn at night for several weeks.

It is often performed with any other facial procedures to give a more balanced look, depending on the patients facial structure and their goals.

Other ear surgeries:

Besides protruding ears, there are a variety of other ear problems that can be helped with surgery. These include: “lop ear,” when the tip seems to fold down and forward; “cupped ear,” which is usually a very small ear; and “shell ear,” when the curve in the outer rim, as well as the natural folds and creases, are missing. Surgery can also improve large or stretched earlobes, or lobes with large creases and wrinkles. Surgeons can even build new ears for those who were born without them or who lost them through injury.

otoplasty1
Ear surgery can help those with protruding or overly large ears.
otoplasty2
An incision is made in the back of the ear so cartilage can be sculpted or folded. Stitches are used to close the incision and help maintain the new shape.
otoplasty3
Creating a fold in the cartilage makes the ear lie flatter against the head and appear more normal.

 

Benefits of Otoplasty

Ear surgery can make an enormous difference to the look of a face, and therefore most patients are extremely happy with their new look.

Preparation for Otoplasty

Before you undergo facial implant surgery, it is important for you to discuss any medical conditions that you have and to tell your surgeon about any medications that you are taking including any herbal or other non-prescription ones.

Surgical procedure

Ear surgery usually takes about two to three hours, although complicated procedures may take longer. The technique will depend on the problem.

With one of the more common techniques, the surgeon makes a small incision in the back of the ear to expose the ear cartilage, after which the cartilage will be sculpted and bent it back toward the head. Non-removable stitches may be used to help maintain the new shape. Occasionally, the surgeon will remove a larger piece of cartilage to provide a more natural-looking fold when the surgery is complete.

Another technique involves a similar incision in the back of the ear. Skin is removed and stitches are used to fold the cartilage back on itself to reshape the ear without removing cartilage.

In most cases, ear surgery will leave a faint scar in the back of the ear that will fade with time. Even when only one ear appears to protrude, surgery is usually performed on both ears for a better balance.

Your new look

Most patients, young and old alike, are thrilled with the results of ear surgery, especially when the goal is improvement, not perfection. Perfectly symmetrical ears is both unlikely and unnatural. If you’ve discussed the procedure and your expectations with the surgeon, chances are, you’ll be quite pleased with the result.

Preconditions and Risks

A small percentage of patients may develop a blood clot on the ear. It may dissolve naturally or can be drawn out with a needle.

Occasionally, patients develop an infection in the cartilage, which can cause scar tissue to form. Such infections are usually treated with antibiotics; rarely, surgery may be required to drain the infected area.

We minimize risks and complications by selecting patients carefully and always having the most skilled surgeons, physicians and nurses carry out procedures. However, despite the highest standards, complications can occur. They are rare, and most patients will not have complications, but if you have concerns about possible complications, please discuss these with your doctor.
