Face corrections

Eyebrow lift

The aim of the eyebrow correction is to lift sunken eyebrows. With time eyebrows sag and slide lower. Skin and soft tissue loose flexibility, thus the distance between eyebrows and eyelashes becomes smaller. Sagging eyebrows create a tired, angry or sad look.

Eyebrows can be lifted in several ways:

  • as a part of full forehead plastic surgery;
  • by a direct cut in eyebrow hair line;
  • by botulin toxin injections.

The most suitable method will be determined by the expert.

During the facial plastic surgery, the excess skin is removed and the tissue below the skin is changed, which results in a restored face contour and a younger look.

Face lift

With time every face changes – skin, hypodermis, muscle-aponeurosis systems become less flexible and sag. The sunken tissue in cheek and jaw-line areas is impossible to correct by use of cosmetic products, massages, lasers, injection or other procedures.

The surgery is performed in cases of excess skin along jaw-line, bull-dog cheeks, double chin, excess skin on the neck, sagging cheeks, very deep nose and mouth wrinkles.

During facial plastic surgery excess skin is removed, the hypodermis, muscle and aponeurosis layers are fixed in place by surgery, thus restoring the face contour and making it look younger.

Often facial plastic surgery is combined with neck plastic surgery since separate neck correction is rarely performed. Facial plastic surgery are also often and successfully combined with various injections.

Rhinoplasty (nose surgery)

Nose can be operated only from 18 years of age when it is fully developed. Nose correction is considered the most difficult plastic surgery as not only skin and under skin is touched but also cartilage and bone and these often develop scars. Therefore during consultation each case is discussed in great detail. The operation in performed under general anaesthesia, you will have to stay at the clinic overnight. Usually plaster is applied on the nose for a week. If not only cartilage, but also bone is touched, you will have bruising for at least 2 weeks. Nose tampons are removed the next morning. Limitation for 3 – 4 weeks to attend sauna, pools, baths, solarium, sports. The stitches are removed on the 10th day. Nose correction is the only operation, the result of which is fully seen only after a year. 

Neck lift

Neck plastic surgery is most often combined with facial plastic surgery. Excess skin is removed together with fat around the jaw line, which results in a more pronounced and younger-looking neck. The results will be long-lasting; however, no neck correction can stop the process of ageing.

Blepharoplasty

Both upper and lower eyelids can be corrected separately or together. If only upper or lower eyelids are being corrected, the patients can choose between general or local anaesthesia. If both upper and lower eyelids are corrected, the surgery is always performed under general anaesthesia.

Sagging of upper eyelid skin and fat hernias, that slide into them, can be both in-born and acquired. Correction is required, if:

  • skin is sagging, covers eyelashes, which results in a feeling of heaviness, pressure, tiredness or discomfort;
  • make-up is collected and smeared in the skin creases;
  • Increased tearing in the eyes, while doctors are unable to find any disease;
  • impossible to tattoo permanent lines.

In such cases ophthalmologists and cosmetologists recommend to visit a plastic surgeon. If the correction is performed on family doctor’s or ophthalmologist's order, the clinic receipt and order can be submitted in the yearly report to receive the compensation defined by the law.

Lower eyelids must be corrected, if:

  • excessive skin is present;
  • bags under eyes;
  • dark circles.

Lower eyelid correction removes excess skin, fixes the fat tissue hernias to prevent them from manifestation and formation of bags under eyes.

Often the bag or dark circle effect is caused by cheek sagging and lack of tissue. In such cases surgery with forbidden; correction can only be done by use of injections. Find out more: https://bit.ly/2k912xI  

Double chin correction

Formation of a double chin can affect both excess weight and age. Double chin can also be hereditary. Not always healthy diet and physical activities will help to remove or reduce the double chin, especially if it was caused by age, when skin flexibility and lymphatic activity have reduced.

Double chin correction options:

  • liposuction (local anaesthesia);
  • Belkyra injections (requires 2-6 procedures, depending on the volume of excess fat). The drug affects fat tissue, destroys and removes them from the body.

Removal of the double chin can be combined with facial plastic surgery.

Ear correction (otoplasty)

Surgeries can be performed on ears for children from 6 years of age because the cartilage has already formed. Most often ear corrections for children are performed before starting school so that the child does not have to suffer bullying which is most common during the first school years.

Ear corrections are also often chosen by adults. The surgery is comparatively quick and easy - done under local anaesthesia.

The patient can go home immediately after the procedure. Surgery itself is very calm, completely painless (only anaesthesia injections are felt), children often play games or fall asleep.

An elastic bandage must be worn for a week. Afterwards the patient can wash their hair, however, small bruises may hold for 2-3 weeks.

Correction of tunnel and torn holes

If the tunnel hole has reached 8 mm in diameter, there is a very small chance that it will naturally grow back, however if 1.5 cm diameter has been reached, the ear will never have the same shape. This results in a big hole in the earlobe. If the client wishes, this hole can be corrected.

Surgery takes around 20-30 minutes per ear and is done with local anaesthesia. After the surgery small red scars will be visible, however with time the scars will become greyish-white. Earlobes will look completely right in 4-6 months, without any special signs showing that the ears were previously pierced. Only a small, white scar will be seen. Earlobes can be pierced again after 6 months after surgery, but a 5 mm distance from the small scar must be observed.

Correction of torn earlobes is performed to restore earlobes that were torn by earrings, due to trauma or intentionally stretched. Such damages can occur due to wearing heavy or long earrings for prolonged periods of time, and in cases when ear piercings are located too close to each other or too close to the lower part of the earlobe.

To restore the damaged earlobe, a cut is made along the sides of the damaged area, which is then sewn together.
