A facelift is a cosmetic surgery that aims to lift and firm sagging facial tissues to add a more radiant and youthful appearance to the face. You will look younger after excess skin is surgically removed, facial tissues are tightened, and deep folds smoothed out. Healthy individuals without conditions that will slow down healing who would like to reduce the signs of aging in the face and neck are great candidates for this procedure. Patients must follow instructions on how to care for the surgical site after surgery. The entire head will be bandaged, but the bandages are generally removed one day after surgery. Swelling and numbness will persist for several months, but it will improve. A facelift can be combined with other procedures such as blepharoplasty and a brow lift. The average price is $7,400.
Browlift or forehead lift is a surgical procedure designed to lift the brow and remove wrinkles on the forehead. Incisions of various lengths and in different areas are used to position the eyebrow in a more youthful and rested position. Good candidates for a brow lift are individuals in good health, who wish to create a more alert look and have issues with deep lines and wrinkles, which causes them to look older than their actual age. During recovery, the forehead is wrapped to minimize bruising and swelling. You will rest with your head elevated, apply cold compresses to reduce inflammation and take pain medication as instructed by your surgeon. The average cost of a browlift is $3,500.
Otoplasty is a cosmetic and reconstructive procedure that reshapes the outer ear through surgery and helps correct deformities to give the ears a better look in proportion to the shape of the face and head. There are three main types of procedures, otopexy to pin back or to flatten the ear, ear augmentation for the outer part of the ear that has not developed, or ear reduction to make the pinna smaller. During recovery, you should keep your head elevated, take medications to alleviate the discomfort, and avoid vigorous activity. If you have prominent ears that bend forward or down, you may be a good candidate for this procedure. Ear surgery can cost $1700 - $7000.
Rhinoplasty, or a nose job, is a surgery that changes the shape of the nose and improves its function. It can be done for cosmetic or medical reasons to correct birth defects or to improve the nose’s appearance. While the best candidates for rhinoplasty are patients with nasal deformity, anyone concerned with how their nose looks may qualify. During recovery, a splint and bandages are placed in the nose to support and protect the new structure. Swelling following surgery subsides in several weeks, and the final results may take up to a year to fully refine. A nose job can cost between $5,000 and $7,000.
Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, aims at improving the appearance of the eyelids, which can be performed on the upper and lower lids or both under local anesthesia. Eyelid surgery takes 1 to 3 hours, and helps remove excess muscle, skin and sometimes fat from the area around the eyes. The best candidates are individuals unhappy with the appearance of their eyelids, whose eyes are healthy, have begun to sag or interfering with vision. Fine sutures are used; therefore, scars are barely noticeable. During recovery swelling and bruising can last a week or longer, pain is minimal, and the stitches are removed in 3-4 days. This procedure can cost up to $3,000.
Earlobe repair is a 15-30 minute surgical procedure usually done to repair earlobes torn, damaged or stretched from wearing heavy earrings. This procedure can be performed right after an injury or delayed until the ear is completely healed. The surgical techniques are used either to close the wound, reshape the ear, or to redistribute tissue, and they are based on the amount of lost tissue and nature of the injury. Fine sutures are used to help minimize scarring and removed seven days following surgery. Patients are advised to keep their phone away from the treated area and avoid wearing tight-fitting neck clothing during recovery. The cost of this procedure is $400-$900.
