Nose Chin & Lips Mountain View
Facial plastic surgery to alter or enhance the appearance of the nose, chin, or lips can be utilized to achieve various results based on the unique needs of the patient. An experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Robert Lowen can determine if one of these options is appropriate for you during your personal consultation at An Enhanced You.
Rhinoplasty is performed to refine the shape of the nose so that it will better complement other facial features. For best results, this procedure is tailored to your specific needs. In some cases, rhinoplasty is used to reduce an overly large nose while in others it provides subtle refinements to the nasal shape. Breathing problems can also be corrected. The basic nose surgery techniques include:
- Complete rhinoplasty, nasal reshaping, open or closed approach
- Augmentation rhinoplasty with implant including dorsum and/or nasal base
- Reconstructive or reoperative nasal surgery
Enlarging the chin can improve facial proportions and create a harmonious and attractive look. There are several techniques available to alter the size or projection of the chin, and the option selected depends on the specific needs of the patient and the surgeon’s judgment. Chin enhancement surgery is commonly performed in conjunction with rhinoplasty for enhanced results.
Enhancing the size or shape of the lips can be accomplished using fat grafting techniques, or Restylane® or Juvederm injections. This procedure can restore a youthful appearance and, when tailored to the unique needs of the individual patient, can be an extremely satisfying treatment with beautiful, natural-looking results. Patients may also be interested in combining lip augmentation with facelift, eyelid surgery, rhinoplasty, BOTOX®, mircodermabrasion, or other facial rejuvenation services.
