Let’s (nose) dive in: Plastic surgery procedures for the nose

The nose is a key player in keeping the harmony of all our facial features. Its size and appearance can make the other features, such as the eyes or chin, less attractive or even make the face look wide and flat. Hence, correcting the nose and allowing it to balance all the features of a person’s face is a job that plastic surgery can do. 

  • Rhinoplasty – Rhinoplasty is one of the oldest plastic surgery procedures. The earliest recorded rhinoplasty dates far back from 3000 to 2500 BCE. The nose job done during this time was to repair a broken nose. Of course this ancient method of improving the nose got better in time. Today, a rhinoplasty treatment can:


  • Align a crooked nasal bridge
  • Alter the shape of the tip of the nose 
  • Augment the angle located between the upper lip and the nose
  • Decrease or increase the bridge of the nose
  • Flatten nose humps
  • Improve or slim down nostril flares
  • Lessen the width or size of the nose

Rhinoplasty can either be done in two ways: Open or Closed Rhinoplasty.

Open rhinoplasty is done by making incisions inside the nostril and a short 5mm scar across the columella. This method is recommended for a patient who needs their nose fixed to:

  • Bring significant enhancement to the nasal tip
  • Correct a previous procedure 
  • Improve function

Closed rhinoplasty is a technique that does not cause any visible scars on the surface of the nose as all the incisions are made inside the nostril. The procedure is advised for an individual who wishes their nose to abate or boost the height of the nasal bridge without causing noticeable change to the tip and length of the nose.

  • Nose Fillers – If the thought of surgery brings you the chills, then the best alternative that you can choose to achieve your desired nose is nose fillers. Otherwise known as “liquid rhinoplasty,” this minimally invasive technique uses hyaluronic acid fillers that are injected into the nose to change it to a shape that balances the face. Nose fillers can improve the overall appearance of the nose by:


  • Creating a smaller and sharper nasal tip
  • Increasing the height of the nasal bridge

 

Let’s face it: Plastic surgery for the face

“Mirrors don’t lie” is a popular saying that is frighteningly accurate. Look into one and you will see an unfiltered reflection of your face staring right back. Look closely and you will see the bitter truths of your facial ageing in the form of wrinkled and sagging skin. While the mirror cannot lie, your face can. A face that has been neglected and exposed daily to the harsh UV rays of the sun can age faster than your actual years of existence on Earth. So, how can you regain back those lost years of looking younger? Here are two plastic surgery procedures to consider:

  1. Face Lift – Also known as rhytidectomy, a face lift is a surgical procedure performed to improve the obvious ageing symptoms affecting the face and neck. There are several techniques to carry out this treatment nowadays, but the most popular ones are the short-scar and extended deep plane face lifts.
    • Short-scar face lift – This procedure targets to improve the lower and central parts of the face. Basing on its name, the procedure is done by making a short-scar in the temporal hairline right above the ear. This incision is lengthened reaching the natural crease in front of the ear and then ends at the base of the ear. The cut does not go behind the ear. The superficial myoaponeurotic system (SMAS) is then lifted and tightened.
    • Extended deep plane face lift – The incision made to the skin to start this procedure follows short-scar face lift procedure’s outline, but the cut extends behind the ear.  In this procedure, your surgeon is able to change the position of tissues below the SMAS, resulting to the release of ligaments and reformation of deeper attachments. This technique allows a more comprehensive lifting without having to pull the tissues tightly. This gives a more natural look and maximum outcome.

 

  1. Face Thread Lift – Face thread lift is a non-surgical procedure that uses temporary sutures to lift the face’s skin. The sutures are inserted into the skin and pulled upwards or back to give the face a lifted and tighter appearance. The result of this face lift method is temporary and more subtle as compared to surgical procedures.

 

Let’s get physical: Plastic surgery for the body

If the effort and hours that you put into your daily exercise no longer yield to your goal of shedding excess fats in some parts of your body, maybe plastic surgery can help. Procedures like liposuction and tummy tuck can get rid of those layers of unwanted fats in an instant without the need for you to break into a sweat. Learn more about these body treatments below.

  • Liposuction – Liposuction is a surgical procedure that uses a powerful machine to suction out fat deposits. As a result, the area which the stubborn fats have been successfully removed appears slimmer and more pleasing aesthetically. These are the areas the body which can be addressed by liposuction:


  • Abdomen
  • Arms
  • Back
  • Buttocks
  • Calves
  • Face
  • Flanks
  • Neck
  • Thighs


  • Tummy Tuck – In addition to removing fats, a tummy tuck procedure gets rid of loose skin, improves the outline of the abdominal area, restores the strength of the core muscle and fixes hernia that may be present in the tummy. The results of this surgery can be enhanced further by consistent exercise and a healthy diet.

Conclusion

Aside from the physical benefits that your body can achieve from various procedures, plastic surgery can also improve your psychosocial wellbeing. Patients who have undergone successful operations also end up having increased self esteem and self worth and an improved quality of life.
