It has been almost 2 1/2 years since I took the plunge and finally had the shape of my nose changed. Every day I look in the mirror and just cannot believe it- It seems to look even better as the time goes on! Friends still tell me "It's so amazing what they did for you!" I've been meaning to write a testimonial now for about a year. Since my surgery in March 2010, I have never been more happy with the way my face has looked...


A rhytidectomy, more commonly known as a facelift, is simply a surgical procedure designed to minimize signs of aging visible on the face and neck. Sagging cheeks, neck and jowls make a person appear older than he or she is or feels. Loose skin under the chin, displaced pockets of fat, and loss of muscle tone betray one’s age. Facelift surgery can turn back the clock.

Many different techniques are used by surgeons to smooth skin, lift features and tighten underlying tissues. Any non-smoker in good general health who desires to look younger and has realistic goals and expectations regarding the results can gain from a facelift procedure. Some patients choose to undergo a full lower facelift or a triplane lift, targeting multiple areas all at once, while others prefer a mini facelift to treat the cheeks, neck or midface separately.

In comparison to non-surgical procedures, a facelift generally lasts considerably longer, up to 8-12 years.  As an added benefit, a facelift can be performed in conjunction with other restorative surgery, such as a brow lift, blepharoplasty (cosmetic eyelid surgery) or skin resurfacing. But the best part of a facelift is how the person feels after its successful completion.

Male Reconstructive Plastic Surgery for Sports Injuries

Reconstructive Surgeries Following Sports InjuriesWhen most people think of plastic surgery, the stereotype is still associated with women getting voluntary aesthetic procedures to look younger. Plastic surgery offers much more than this, however, and many more men are realizing how beneficial cosmetic surgery can be. Aside from the growing number of men who elect to have anti-aging surgery, there are many men who seek surgical reconstruction from injury, which is common in sports. It is not just professional athletes who seek help either. Amateur sports can also yield injuries that are aesthetically deforming and can cause self-esteem problems. So what are some common types of facial reconstruction that are done on athletes?
