Your face is the first thing people see about you, and it is often how you are remembered by the people you meet. Feeling self-conscious about your face can have a huge impact on your confidence and the way you feel when you meet new people. Cosmetic procedures of the face can encompass a wide range of treatments focused on different target areas; the ears, brow, eyes, nose, skin or general shape of the face, depending on your overall aesthetic goals. Whether you want to rebalance the proportions of your face, or simply just restore some youthfulness, here at Highgate Private Hospital, we offer you a first-class service with our experienced facial Surgery Consultants to help give you the cosmetic outcome you have always wanted!
What is facial surgery?
At Highgate Private Hospital we offer a number of cosmetic procedures that can provide aesthetic enhancement to your face:
This is a small procedure that involves the insertion of a small, metal implant under the skin at the fold of your ear to correct the positioning of ears that appear particularly prominent. The procedure takes about 20 minutes for both ears and can be done under a local anaesthetic. Read more information about earfold procedures and our expert specialists.
Also known as ‘otoplasty’ or ‘pinnaplasty’, this is a more general procedure for altering the shape and/or position of the ears. It can include pinning them back, reducing their size or reshaping them due to deformity or following injury. Read more about what an ear reshaping surgery could do for you.
A brow lift is a procedure that provides subtle rejuvenation to the upper proportion of your face to give a youthful, smoother result. This surgery can directly address a heavier, thicker brow to give a refreshed, lighter overall appearance to the face.
As skin matures, it can lose its firm appearance – this is often seen most prominently around the eyes, where the muscles around the eyes begin to sag. Dropping of the eyelid and dark circles under the eye can give the appearance of tiredness and weariness, and for some people can affect their confidence. Eyelid-lifting surgery, also known as ‘blepharoplasty’ aims to tighten the loose skin around the eyes to lift the overall appearance and help you to achieve a youthful look with sparkling eyes. Here you can find out more about eyelid surgery.
Over time, facial skin can begin to drop and face and neck muscles can lose their natural tone as part of the normal ageing process. A facelift procedure targets the lower two-thirds of the face to remove excess fat and skin by restoring the tautness of the skin to give outstanding and long-lasting youthful results. This is often done alongside eyelid surgery to give an overall lift of the face. Read more about face lift surgery.
For people who feel self-conscious and uncomfortable about the shape of their nose, plastic surgery can offer a solution in the form of nose reshaping, also known as ‘rhinoplasty’. This kind of surgery can not only alter the appearance of your nose, but can also correct the alignment of the nose in the case of deformity, or following injury, as well as aid breathing difficulties. You can read more information about nose reshaping surgery.
