Rhinoplasty, or nose job surgery, is the most artistic procedure undertaken by plastic surgeons. This is because all the work is done on the underlying framework of the nose, which consists of a bone and cartilage combination. The skin must then shrink and shape over the new modified nasal structure. This takes up to two years, and thereafter the changes become visible and stable. The amount of change also depends on your skin type and thickness.

Facelift

Rhytidectomy (Face Lift), commonly known as a facelift, is the surgical process of returning the face and neck to a more youthful and rested state. As we age, we lose tissue fullness, which results in wrinkling, sagging and unwanted hollows that are accentuated – specifically in areas where the tissue is attached to underlying bones. Facelift surgery removes extra skin to reduce wrinkles, firms up the layer under the skin, smoothes out the front of the neck, and refills hollow areas.
