Face Procedures by Oasis Plastic Surgery

Face

Chin Enhancement (Mentoplasty) in Arizona
Chin Augmentation or mentoplasty is performed on the chin when it is disproportionate to the rest of the face. Your facial appearance is in part due to the underlying bones or facial skeleton. When the chin is small or recessed or the jawline undefined the facial structure can be augmented with implants. In general, facial implants bring balance and better proportion to the face by increasing projection or better defining your features. Both men and women desire more defined facial features or natural angles that are proportionate and create a natural and attractive appearance.

Chin surgery can beneficial for those bothered by a receding or small chin and also those with asymmetries or congenital defects. Chin implants can increase the size and projection of a chin so that it is more in proportion with the cheeks and forehead. Mentoplasty is also commonly performed to enhance or complement those undergoing other facial contouring procedures such as nasal surgery.

Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)
Eyelid surgery also known as blepharoplasty improves the appearance of the upper, lower or both eyelids creating a more youthful and rested appearance. Sometimes, even when you have had a good night’s sleep, your eyes can appear tired and droopy.

If this sounds familiar, you are not alone. Each year thousands of men and women undergo eyelid surgery, placing it in the top five most commonly performed procedures each year. Blepharoplasty can be performed alone or in conjunction with other rejuvenation procedures for the face. Surgery for the eyelids can help improve excess upper eyelid skin and correct bags or protuberant fat under the eyes.

Ear pinning (Otoplasty) in Arizona
Otoplasty also known as ear pinning surgery is often considered for both children and adults who have protruding, large or misshapen ears. Many times these people can suffer from low self-esteem or lack of confidence related to the appearance of their ears. If protruding or large ears bother you or your child, you may consider plastic surgery to help correct them. Ear surgery can be performed to improve the shape, position or proportion of the ears. Whether the appearance was noticed since birth or occurred after an injury, surgical correction can be considered.

In general these procedures will attempt to restore a natural shape and proportion to the ears and with the rest of the face. Making even small changes in the appearance of one’s ears can have a profound effect on their self-confidence. Amazingly, ears are nearly full grown by the age of 4, so many parents may consider having these corrective procedures done for their children around the time they are starting school. While it is possible to perform these procedures on children around age 5, it is often best to wait to perform surgery until the child desires surgery and is bothered by the appearance of their ears. When the child is uncomfortable with their ears and desires the change they are usually more cooperative during the process and happier with the outcomes.

Facelift (Rhytidectomy) in Scottsdale, Arizona
A facelift also known as a rhytidectomy is a surgical procedure that is performed to rejuvenate and improve the signs of aging in the face and neck. A facelift is designed to correct sagging in the midface, repair loss of muscle tone in the lower face that creates the appearance of jowls, remove loose skin and excess fat, improve deep creases between the nose and mouth and reposition fat that has fallen or is displaced.

Each year more than 150,000 men and women undergo a facelift to address concerns in the lower 2/3 of the face. This procedure which gives a rested, more youthful appearance is often combined with other procedures including a necklift, eyelid surgery, browlift, and other rejuvenation techniques. A facelift will not change your fundamental appearance and does not stop the aging process, but can be a great way to achieve your rejuvenation goals.

Nasal reshaping (Rhinoplasty) in Arizona
Nasal surgery or rhinoplasty is surgery performed on the nose to improve the appearance and proportion of your nose, enhancing facial harmony and self confidence. Both men and women request nasal surgery to change the appearance of their nose.
