Look as Young as You Feel.
Many people who opt to have rhinoplasty feel that the size or shape of their nose is not in balance with the rest of their facial features. Many times, these people are candidates for the surgery. However, in order to determine each patient’s candidacy, Dr. Antonetti must carefully analyze the medical circumstances of each patient. Rhinoplasty candidates should have a fully matured nasal bone and the shape of the nostrils should be stabilized. This typically occurs in the mid-teens, at the earliest.
For those seeking a younger, more vibrant look, facelift surgery offers a highly effective method of reducing telltale signs of aging. Sun damage, stress, and pollutants all have a profound affect on the skin. In time, these elements show themselves in the form of wrinkles and other types of skin damage that can make a person appear older than they are. Facelift surgery, performed at the Plano TX office of plastic surgeon Alfred Antonetti, is an excellent option for those seeking a solution to “crow’s feet” at the corners of the eyes, a sagging jaw line, and other telling affects of skin damage or age.
Although most patients who choose to undergo eyelid surgery do so to minimize the effects of aging, the procedure can be performed on younger patients as well. Individuals whose genetics have left them with excess skin or puffiness that makes them look fatigued might choose to have eyelid surgery performed while they are still in their 20s. It is also important to note that blepharoplasty is not only beneficial for cosmetic reasons; many people decide to undergo eyelid surgery to improve obstructed vision caused by drooping eyelids.
A weak chin can detract from an otherwise attractive profile. Fortunately, chin augmentation can increase the size of the chin, creating a stronger jaw line and balancing other facial features. In some cases, a weak chin can place too much emphasis on the nose. Fortunately, this procedure can make the nose look smaller and improve the proportions between the nose and chin. Chin augmentation can also be performed in conjunction with rhinoplasty for more dramatic results.
Large or protruding ears can be a cause of great self-consciousness, especially for children and teens. Ear surgery, or otoplasty, is a surgical procedure that can reduce the size of the ears, pinning them closer to the head. Ear surgery can make a dramatic improvement in a person’s appearance, easing social tensions and boosting self-esteem. Ear surgery is most often performed on children over the age of five. Younger children should postpone having otoplasty until their ears have finished growing. Teenagers and adults can have ear surgery as well.
