Rhinoplasty, commonly known as a “nose job,” is a surgical procedure aimed at reshaping the nose. It can enhance both the aesthetic and functional aspects of the nose, correcting imperfections or breathing issues. As a highly customizable procedure, rhinoplasty can be tailored to each patient’s unique needs and desires.


A facelift, or rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure designed to address signs of aging in the face and neck. It involves tightening the skin and underlying tissues to reduce wrinkles and sagging, resulting in a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.


Eye lid surgery, or blepharoplasty, focuses on rejuvenating the eyes by removing excess skin, fat, and muscle from the eyelids. This can diminish puffiness, drooping, and wrinkles around the eyes, ultimately creating a more refreshed and alert look.


A browlift, or forehead lift, is a procedure that lifts and tightens the forehead and eyebrow area. It helps reduce sagging and wrinkles in the forehead, resulting in a more youthful and energized appearance.


Chin augmentation, often achieved with chin implants or fillers, enhances the profile by improving the projection and shape of the chin. It can bring balance and harmony to the facial features.


Otoplasty, also known as ear surgery, is typically performed to correct prominent or misshapen ears. This procedure reshapes the ears, bringing them into better proportion with the face.


Reconstructive surgery is a broader category encompassing various procedures, often performed to restore function or appearance after injury, illness, or congenital abnormalities. It may include breast reconstruction after mastectomy, skin grafts for burn victims, and complex facial reconstruction for trauma patients.

  • How do I know if I’m a good candidate for face procedures?

  • How long is the recovery period for face procedures?

    The recovery period can vary depending on the patient and the specific procedure performed. Generally, patients may experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort for a few days post-surgery. Most can resume normal activities within two weeks, but full recovery and the final results may take up to a few months. We will provide detailed post-procedure care instructions for a smooth recovery.

  • How long do the results of face procedures last?

    They often last several years, though it will depend on the specific procedure and certain external factors. For instance, your skin type, age, and lifestyle choices play a significant role in the duration of the results. We recommend regular follow-up care and adhering to skincare routines to extend the effects.
