Face Surgery

visage

1) Improve an aging face :

  • The neck and the face contour by the face and neck lift : Improves sagging facial skin, jowls and loose neck skin by removing excess fat, tightening muscles and re-draping skin.
  • The eyelids by the blepharoplasty : Alters drooping upper eyelid skin and the puffy bags below the eyes by removing excess fat, skin and muscle.
  • The mid-face region by a mid-face lift : Rejuvenates the central section of the face from the lower eyelid to the upper lip, by repositioning sagging tissues and enhancing the volume of soft tissue that is lost in the mid-face with age, sun exposure, and gravity.
  • Reposition eyebrows falling by an eyebrow lift .

2) Modify the shape of the nose by Rhinoplasty :

Reshapes the nose by reducing or increasing the size, removing humps, changing the shape of tip or bridge, narrowing the span of the nostrils, or changing the angle between the nose and upper lip. This procedure may also relieve some breathing difficulties when combined with surgery performed on the nasal septum.

Procedure

Minimizes forehead creases, drooping eyebrows, hooding over the eyes, furrowed forehead and frown lines by removing excess tissue, altering muscles and tightening the forehead skin. This procedure may be performed using the traditional technique, with an incision across the top of the head just behind the hairline, or with the use of an endoscope, which requires three to five short incisions, but allows access to the relevant areas to be treated incorporating a camera and a monitor to visualize the dissected areas.

Length

One to two hours

Anesthesia

General anesthesia or intravenous sedation and local anesthesia are options.

Inpatient /Outpatient

This is most often an outpatient procedure

Possible Side Effects

When an endoscope is used: Temporary swelling, numbness, headaches, and bruising.

When using the traditional method, there is the possibility of itching and hair loss.

Risks

Injury to facial nerves causing loss of motion, muscle weakness, or an asymmetrical look, persistent areas of numbness and broad and occasionally excessive scarring

Recovery

The patient usually returns to work in seven to ten days and even sooner with an endoscopic forehead lift. The patient must limit more strenuous activities for several weeks. Full recovery from bruising takes from two to three weeks. One should limit sun exposure for several months to avoid hyperpigmentation of the forehead which can occur as a result of sunlight exposure during the first 3-6 months after the procedure has been performed.

Results

This procedure usually last up to five to ten years

Rhinoplastie1

 

Rhinoplastie2

Inpatient/Outpatient

This is an outpatient procedure

Possible Side Effects

Temporary swelling, bruising around the eyes, and/or nose and some bleeding and nasal stuffiness.

Risks

Infection, asymmetry, unsatisfactory nasal shape and incomplete improvement (which would require additional surgery) are possible

Recovery

The patient may go back to work after one week. More strenuous activities may be resumed after two to three weeks. The patient should avoid any activity that could impact on the nose or becoming sunburned for at least eight weeks. The use of a sunblock that provides both UVA and UVB protection is useful. The final results may take up to one year and sometimes longer to achieve. (Why longer? The nose seems to be the part of the body that takes the longest to completely assume the final appearance after cosmetic plastic surgical procedures. This is related to the time required for reestablishment of lymphatic drainage pathways which are responsible for the resolution of swelling)

Results

Permanent
