We offer cosmetic procedures to the face including facelifts, rhinoplasty, injections, and rejuvenation procedures. Our facial procedures are some of the most popular services that we provide, especially amongst patients seeking a rejuvenated, youthful appearance without any signs of surgery.
There are two types of facelifts; the traditional facelift and the mini face lift. Both are available at the Egozi Plastic Surgery Center.
The traditional facelift is a comprehensive surgical procedure that treats facial creases, and excess or sagging skin. Incisions are strategically made between the brows and the neck to remove or relocate fat cells and muscle that causes wrinkling. It primarily performed on patients 50 and older who are seeking a rejuvenated youthful appearance. The effects of traditional facelifts last for up to 15 years, and physical signs of surgery are minimal.
The mini face lift is a less comprehensive cosmetic procedure compared to the traditional facelift. It utilized as a quick fix procedure that treats facial skin blemishes. Small incisions are strategically placed on the brow, chin, cheeks or jowls to treat sagging or drooping skin. The effects are noticeable for up to 10 years, and signs of surgery are almost non-existent. Additionally, patients only require a week of post-surgery recovery to heal fully from their treatment.
Mini facelifts are better suited to younger patients seeking to achieve a rejuvenated and youthful appearance. The traditional facelift is best suited for older patients seeking that youthful appearance with rejuvenated skin.
An alternative to the mini facelift is facial injection treatment. Injections do not require incisions, the effects are quickly noticeable, and there is no required post-treatment recovery period. Botox, Juvederm, Sculptra, and Restylane are all certified for use at the Egozi Plastic Surgery Center. Injections are strategically placed to target specific muscles that are causing wrinkling. Not all injection treatments are suitable for every patient and recommendation will be made before treatment.
Facial injection treatment is especially beneficial for patients with a busy schedule who cannot set time aside to recover from surgery. Injections take approximately an hour to take effect, and the results are similar to that of a mini face lift. Depending on the injection, the effects last between six months to two years and follow-up procedures are commonly required.
Like injections, rejuvenation procedures are an alternative to mini face lifts. They are minimally invasive cosmetic surgeries that utilize small incisions, similar to the mini face lift, usually to the neck and jowls. Rejuvenation procedures are best used to treat wrinkling or sagging skin. Through small incisions, the skin around the neck and jowls is pulled back to create a naturally tight look. It is suitable for patients of all ages seeking to achieve a naturally youthful appearance. Recovery time for rejuvenation procedures are minimal, and patients usually return to their normal daily routine within ten days.
Rhinoplasty, more commonly known as the “nose job” is the last of the facial procedures offered. It is performed to correct the form and function of the nose, while also aesthetically enhancing it. Rhinoplasty can alter nose size to face size ratio, change the width and size of the bridge, and create an aesthetic balance between the nostrils and the rest of the nose. Bumps can be smoothed out, symmetry can be improved, and depressions can be filled out. Patients who have deviated septums, which causes breathing difficulties, undergo rhinoplasty, as well, to correct this irregularity. Overall, rhinoplasty can do a lot to alter the nose.
Rhinoplasty is either performed through injections or incisions. A recommendation will be made based on the needs and wants of the patient.
