Ear and Eyelid
If you are displeased with the appearance of your facial profile then maybe an ear or eyelid surgery could be for you. An alteration of a few millimeters of augmentation can change a profile just enough to achieve an enhanced, more natural look. During a facial consultation, your profile will be evaluated and measured to determine the amount of projection or balance the facial contours need to provide a natural and appealing outcome. You will have photographs taken and we will discuss our recommendations.
Ear surgery, or otoplasty, is usually performed to set prominent ears back closer to the head or to reduce the size of large ears. For the most part, this surgery is performed on children between the ages of four to 14. Ears are generally fully grown by age four and the earlier the surgery, the less teasing the child will go through. Ear surgery may also be performed on adults and does not carry additional risks for older patients.
Ear surgery can also address the following issues:
Lop ear-tip seems to fold down and forward
Cupped ear - usually a very small ear
Shell ear-curve in the outer rim, as well as natural folds, are missing
Large or stretched earlobes
Lobes with large creases or wrinkles
Is eyelid surgery right for you? If you have healthy facial tissue and muscles, are a non-smoker, are non-diabetic, have no underlying vision, thyroid, or cardiovascular problems, and have realistic expectations, then you are probably a prime candidate for upper and lower eyelid surgery. Identify your goals and then compare them to our list of surgical options below.
Typically we can improve the appearance of the eyelid area by:
- Removing excess fatty deposits that cause puffiness.
- Tightening loose skin in the upper eyelid, folds that sometimes hinder vision.
- Removing extra skin and wrinkles from the lower eyelid.
- Rejuvenating puffy bags that appear under eyes.
- Tightening the lower eyelid to create a more aesthetically pleasing position relative to the iris, the colored part of the eye.
