Face Lift Surgery
Also known as a rhytidectomy, a face lift is a surgical procedure that aims to give a more youthful appearance to the face and neck. It can lift and firm sagging facial tissues because of the loss of elasticity due to aging.
A cosmetic surgeon can individualize each face lift procedure to a patient’s needs. They can tailor their approach to deliver suitable results for each patient. For those who exhibit a mild degree of sagging, they can be good candidates for a mini face lift. It is a less invasive technique where the surgeon can tighten deep facial tissues using shorter incisions.
A standard face lift or the “traditional” face lift can fully address moderate to advanced signs of aging in the mid-face area and the neck. The extent of surgery is more than that of a mini face lift, hence it requires more recovery time. It may also involve tissue repositioning and excess skin removal. As a result, it can eliminate jowls and saggy skin under the chin. The results of this technique are more profound.
The Dr. Daood Clinic also offers non-surgical solutions to improve the appearance of the facial skin. This treatment is an injectable solution derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It is popularly known to help relax facial muscles by blocking certain nerves. The effects of this anti-wrinkle injection can last up to three to twelve months, depending on what is treated.
Compared to a face lift, this treatment is a convenient and less-invasive alternative for the right patients. This anti-wrinkle injection no longer requires any downtime and recovery. It only uses a fine needle to administer the solution to the targeted facial muscles. The entire session only takes minutes to complete.
It can address wrinkles, smooth out fine lines, and relax the muscles. As nerve signals to the muscles are blocked its ability to contract is reduced. Therefore, aside from removing wrinkles, it can also prevent its formation.
What is most important in getting this treatment is the expertise of the one who administers this. Patients are encouraged to only get it from trained and experienced practitioners to avoid botched outcomes.
Dermal fillers are solutions that come in a variety of form and are administered via small injections using a fine needle. It can fill in wrinkles and add volume to soft tissues. It can be used in different areas of the face: around the eyes, cheeks, mouth and jawline. It can even be used as lip fillers to plump up and to improve the shape of the lips.
With age, the body’s ability to produce proteins like collagen and elastin, declines. As a result, individuals lose volume in certain areas of the face and the skin becomes more prone to sagging. Dermal fillers restore lost volume to the face and smooth out deep-set lines. It also has a lifting effect.
The effects of dermal fillers can last for several months to years. This will depend on how the patient’s body reacts, and the type of dermal filler used.
A lip augmentation is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that can enlarge or reshape the lips. Since we lose collagen and fat with age, this can also cause the lips to thin out. At the Dr. Daood clinic, an injectable dermal filler is used to plump up the lips.
There are different kinds of dermal fillers that can be used for this purpose. However, every doctor has their own preference. Ultimately, the choice will depend on the patients desired outcome and for how long they want to keep it. The dermal fillers used can last from six to eighteen months.
It takes a skilled doctor to create beautiful lips that will complement a patient’s face. It is important that patients carefully choose their doctor and discuss their aesthetic goals clearly.
Also known as a nose job, rhinoplasty is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures around the world. The reason for this procedure may be aesthetic or functional, and in some cases, it could be both. Several patients have found satisfaction with the results of this procedure because it can modify bone, cartilage, and skin. It can enhance the shape or proportion of the nose, or it can be done to repair deformities either by birth or through an injury.
A rhinoplasty requires a customized plan to ensure that results complement other facial features. This procedure can be performed under local or general anaesthesia, depending on the procedure that needs to be done and the patient’s preference. It can be performed in a hospital, a surgeon’s office, or an outpatient facility. However, complex procedures may require a short hospital stay.
The length of time the surgery will take will depend upon the procedures involved. It can range from a couple of minutes to hours. The same is also true for recovery. It will take several months for the structures to heal entirely.
