Forehead Lift
A forehead lift can create a younger, friendlier appearance by reducing furrows and frown lines and raising drooping eyebrows. Your skin and underlying tissues are lifted, smoothed, and repositioned. People with receding hairlines or high foreheads may not be suitable candidates, or may choose to have a modification of the standard forehead or brow lift. Recovery time is about ten days. Results: ten years.

Mentoplasty (Chin Implants)
A chin implant can create a more pleasing profile by strengthening a weak, receding chin, thus creating a better balance with the rest of your face. For a few days, your chin may be sore and you may have a temporary decrease in movement and feeling in your lips. Swelling usually subsides in a few weeks. Results: permanent.-

Submental Lipectomy
Surgery beneath the chin to eliminate "double" chin; excess fat is removed. Recovery time is approximately one week. Results: generally permanent..

Otoplasty (Ear Surgery)
Surgery of the ear where ears can be "pinned back" by reshaping the cartilage. Recovery time is about one week. Results: permanent.-

Laser Skin Resurfacing
Removal of the upper layer of the skin using a laser, resulting in smoother and less wrinkled skin. Recovery time is about ten days. Results: generally permanent.

Collagen Implants
In collagen implants, an injection of natural protein is made into the middle and deep layers of your skin. This puffs up and raises skin tissue to smooth out and make less visible wrinkles and scars. Recovery time is about three hours. Results: repeated as needed.-

Chemical Peels
In chemical peels, your surgeon performs a controlled removal of the outer layer of skin with specific chemicals, allowing it to regenerate with fewer lines and wrinkles. Recovery time, depending on the nature of the chemical, is from one to three weeks. Results: generally permanent.

In dermabrasion, the surgeon uses a special rotating brush to remove the outer layer of skin, allowing new skin to grow back more smoothly. Recovery time is about 10 days. Results: generally permanent. -

Fat taken from another part of your body (such as your abdomen, hips, or thighs) is injected just underneath your skin. Your body absorbs much of the injected fat, so lipoinjection may be repeated about three times at three- to six-month intervals. Gradually, enough fat may remain at the site to raise the fold for an extended period.
