What's in Injectables?

Injectable IngredientsHave you ever wondered why there are so many choices available when it comes to injectables? The goal of almost all injectables might be the same: to minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles on your face.

Not Just Looks: Other Reasons for Nasal Surgery

Types of Nasal SurgeryPeople tend to associate nasal surgery, particularly rhinoplasty, with a certain amount of vanity about the appearance of the nose. While one of the main reasons why people consider rhinoplasty is to improve aesthetics, appearance isn't the only thing that drives people to surgery. Issues with the way a person's nose functions, as well as a congenital deformity or damage that occurred later in life can all play a part when it comes to deciding whether rhinoplasty is an appropriate choice or not.

Deviated Septum

A deviated septum is simply a septum that leans to one side or other, decreasing the size of the nasal passage in one nostril. The constricted nasal passage can make it difficult to breathe or can lead to facial pain and bleeding from the nose. Not every person with a deviated septum requires surgery to correct it, but surgery is the only way to actually repair the issue. For some people, managing the symptoms caused by the deviation is enough. Some people also don't experience any trouble breathing or have any other issues, even though they have a deviated septum.

Ways to Enhance the Lips

Ways to Enhance the LipsWomen today know that full lips are a desirable trait, but not many women are born with lips as full as they’d like.

Luckily, today’s cosmetic procedures, both surgical and nonsurgical, can help you to achieve the full lips you’ve always wanted. Through lip enhancement, your facial plastic surgeon can work to create lips that are more noticeable, better balanced with your other features, and as feminine as you hoped.

Forehead Lifts Fight the Effects of Gravity

What Can a Forehead Lift Do for You?As we age, time and gravity create many changes in our appearances. As time explored gravity does its work against loosened skin and muscles, pulling down any features of the face. Sagging and drooping are often the result of these changes, as the skins production of collagen slows and even stops. When this occurs, the skin is weak and inelastic and susceptible to the effects of gravity. When aging begins to affect the forehead and brow, the result can create many problems for prospective patients. These patients claim that a sunken brow causes them to appear tired and sad, sometimes even angry. Gravity can be reversed with specialized procedures like the forehead lift, which targets this common problem area.

Best Uses for Botox

Best Uses for BotoxFor at least a decade, Botox Cosmetic has been making itself a household name by eliminating wrinkle after wrinkle. Approved by the FDA as an anti-aging wrinkle treatment, Botox works to temporarily paralyze the facial muscles responsible for causing the creases in the skin that result in wrinkles. Not only can this diminish the appearance of your existing wrinkles, it can also work as a preventative measure against the formation of new lines and wrinkles. Botox is an ideal treatment for the small muscle groups of the face, often providing results that last up to a year. Today’s facial plastic surgeons have refined their techniques to deliver Botox treatments for a wide range of uses.
