The medical term for nose job is Rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty may be administered for cosmetic or functional reasons. The nose is not a simple structure. With a vital role in breathing, it is also a central feature on our faces. Understandably, many people are conscious of the appearance of their nose both front on and in profile. Dr Alan Evans has helped thousands of patients alter their nose and accomplish a look that suits the natural contours of their face.
Dr Evans works with the unique angles and shape of your face in order to subtly reshape your nose to create a natural appearance to suit the individual features of your face. Nasal surgery can be performed to change consequences of genetics, congenital disability or injury. It can be done to enhance your appearance and/or to improve your nasal breathing.
Facial implants are currently used to augment skeletal dimension, to restore facial contour by expanding areas where loss of facial volume occurs or to work in combination with facelift, rhinoplasty or other procedures as part of the current multimodality approach to facial rejuvenation surgery.
There are a variety of implants available, made from a number of materials. Implants aid in strengthening a jawline or bringing the cheekbones or chin into balance with the rest of the face.
At Shire Cosmetic Medicine we offer a number of different procedures depending on the patient’s individual needs:-
To prevent bumping your implant you may be advised not to take part in certain activities for several weeks, Dr Evans will inform you when you can resume normal activities. It may take weeks or even months for your new appearance to settle in; therefore it’s important to give yourself time to adjust to your brand new look.
Facial ageing is to a great extent genetically determined. It is also influenced by other factors such as sun exposure, smoking, weight fluctuations and the stresses of daily life. A facelift does not alter this ongoing process. However, by modifying facial volume with fillers or fat, tightening underlying fascia and muscles, and redraping the skin of your face and neck, a facelift can restore a younger appearance to your face.
A facelift can be administered by itself or in combination with other procedures such as forehead/browlift, nose reshaping or eyelid surgery. Limited incision facelifting provides a conservative but effective result in the right patient who desires a lower risk, quicker healing procedure.
The goal and the result of a facelift are to provide a more youthful looking face. The improvement can be expected to last many years. The results do not “wear off”, but rather, the ageing process will continue starting with your new, younger appearance. When further ageing occurs, you could choose to have a secondary facelift or tuck which can usually be administered safely and easily.
