As you age, your facial muscles loosen and your skin becomes less elastic, creating folds and lines. A facelift operation can give you a more alert and youthful appearance by reducing saggy skin and wrinkles.
A facelift (Rhytidectomy) can lift your whole face (a full facelift) or just your brow area, lower face or neck. The effects of a facelift usually last for seven to 10 years.
A facelift will improve the appearance of the skin but it is important to note that your face will continue to age. For the best results it is recommended that anyone having facelift surgery maintain a stable body weight and refrain from smoking, This can help maintain the elasticity of the skin and bone structure of the face.

The skin loses its elasticity and our muscles slacken with age. For the eyelids this results in an accumulation of loose skin which collects as folds in the upper lids and forms deepening creases in the lower lids. At the same time there is slackening of the muscle beneath the skin allowing the fat, which cushions the eyes in their sockets, to protrude forward to give the appearance of bagginess. In some families there is an inherited tendency for bags to develop during early adulthood before any skin changes.
The problem often seems worse in the morning particularly with prolonged stress and lack of sleep. Fluid that is normally distributed throughout the upright body during the day, tends at night to settle in areas where the skin is loose, such as the eyelids. Drooping of the eyelids is also an effect of the ageing process and aggravates the accumulation of the skin in the upper eyelids.

Commonly called a nose job or rhinoplasty, this is an operation to alter the shape of your nose. Patients opt for this procedure for both cosmetic reasons or to restore shape after an injury.
An operation to have your nose reshaped can change the size and shape from the tip to the bridge of your nose including the nostrils.
The shape and size of your nose is inherited from your parents. Your nose is generally fully developed by the time you’re 16.
It is very important to be sure about what you don’t like about your nose and what you want changed. Your Surgeon will be able to provide advice so that any surgery on your nose results in a natural result.
