Rhinoplasty performed at our Kansas City, Missouri plastic surgery center refines the shape of the nose in a number of different ways – straightening, removing bumps, reshaping the tip, or reducing projection or length. Rhinoplasty can make a nose larger or smaller, refine the shape of the bridge, tip, or nostrils, and correct for crookedness, injuries, and breathing abnormalities that arise due to problems with the internal structures of the nose.
Blepharoplasty, also known as an eyelid lift, is surgery performed around the eye area that results in a more youthful looking, attractive appearance. For some patients, blepharoplasty is only needed on the upper eyelids, or only on the lower eyelids. Other patients may require both upper and lower blepharoplasty procedures to achieve their desired results.
Facelift is a surgical procedure performed to tighten the lower face and neck. Sun exposure, weight fluctuation, and the natural aging process make skin loosen and sag, resulting in wrinkles and jowls. Aging also reduces certain areas of fat, such as on the sides of the chin and over the lateral cheek bone area; in other areas there is an increase of fat, such as under the chin (neck), jowls and along the nasolabial fold. These changes are addressed with a facelift.
If the skin under your chin or on your neck has begun to slacken or sag, you might be a good candidate for a neck lift. Neck lift, performed at our Kansas City, Missouri, cosmetic surgery center, is a surgical method of removing excess fat and surplus skin from the neck and chin areas, and carefully lifting and tightening the remaining skin and underlying muscles. This procedure can reduce or eliminate the undesirable “turkey neck” look, and leaves your skin taught and toned.
A thread lift has only 20 to 30 percent of the effect a typical facelift provides. These non-absorbable clear sutures can be used to lift a low eyebrow position, raise cheeks and jowls, and tighten loose neck tissue. They are best suited for those in their thirties to fifties with early signs of aging.
A natural volume restoring material is your own fat. Moving fat from an area of excess to areas of needs has been done since 1897. Fat grafting to the face seems to improve the overlying skin appearance, perhaps due to stem cells which are found in fat. Fat grafting is used in the face, buttocks, and breast.
Chin implants, prosthetic forms surgically placed in the chin, can improve the contour of the face and give more definition to its middle and lower portions, bringing facial features into better proportion, harmony, and balance. A strong chin can build your confidence and self-esteem.
