Facial plastic surgery can address many concerns related to your appearance. Most of these surgeries are designed to reduce the signs of aging, while others can enhance or improve facial features like the nose, chin or ears. View the following pages to learn more about the facial surgery procedures offered by Dr. Chen here in Salt Lake City.
A facelift is designed to reduce or improve signs of aging in the lower and middle areas of the face. This is achieved by removing excess facial fat, tightening underlying muscles, and redraping the skin of your face and neck.
Chin surgery, also known as mentoplasty, is a surgical procedure to reshape the chin either by enhancement with an implant or reduction surgery on the bone.
Facial implants are used to improve and enhance facial contours. Frequently, these implants will help provide a more harmonious balance to your face and features so that you feel better about the way you look.
Ear pinning surgery is usually done to set prominent ears back closer to the head or to reduce the size of large ears. The operation is usually done on children between the ages of four and 14.
During facial fat grafting, fat cells are extracted from a harvest site and reinjected beneath the facial skin. Fat can correct skin depressions, minimize forehead wrinkles or enhance the lips.
Eyelid surgery is a procedure to remove fat--usually along with excess skin and muscle from the upper and lower eyelids. Eyelid surgery can correct drooping upper lids and puffy bags below your eyes.
Neck lift surgery can correct visible signs of aging by removing excess fat, tightening underlying muscles, and redraping the skin of your neck. Good candidates have some skin elasticity and bone structure that is well-defined.
Rhinoplasty, or surgery to reshape the nose, can reduce or increase the size of your nose, change the shape of the tip or the bridge, narrow the span of the nostrils, or change the angle between your nose and your upper lip.
