Blepharoplasty

This procedure corrects drooping upper eyelids and puffiness below the eyes by removing skin and excess fat above and below the eyes. Upper eyelid surgery may be a covered benefit of your insurance policy if there are visual field defects. Some Asian patients who want to have more defined, rounder upper eyelids may benefit from upper blepharoplasty.

Rhinoplasty

Shaping one’s nose is one of the most sophisticated cosmetic procedures. Even minor changes of one’s nose result in significant changes of the facial impression. Common changes include: removing humps, increasing or decreasing the width, decreasing/increasing the size of nasal tip, reducing nostril widths, and changing the height of tip. Any existing breathing problems may also be addressed at the time of surgery. All procedures are individualized to accomplish each patient’s aesthetic goal. Results may not be apparent as late as 6 to 12 months, due to prolonged swelling.

Facial Contouring Surgery

Facial contouring procedures are the shaping the face by reshaping the facial bones - forehead bone, cheek bone, and jaw bones. Typical procedures include reshaping of cheek (cheek implant placement or cheek reduction), jaw contouring (reduction of jaws, augmentation, chin implant placement, genioplasty). This procedure will drastically change the shape of the face. Using the same principles, feminization of the male face can be done in a patient with transgender disorders.
