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.

The Cosmetic Issues of Skin Cancer and Reconstruction

The Cosmetic Issues of Skin Cancer and Reconstruction

Cosmetic Issues related to skin cancer and reconstructionSkin cancer is on the rise among Americans, and it is not surprising, considering the popularity of tanning beds and outdoor activities. The good news is that awareness is increasing, prompting more people to protect themselves from harmful UV rays. While this will help reduce the number of skin cancer cases overall in the U.S., there will still always be some people who develop the disease. There are a number of different types of skin cancer, which range greatly in deadliness and prevalence. Fortunately, the least deadly of the skin cancer types, basal cell carcinoma, is also the most common. If caught early, treatment is typically very successful. However, basal cell carcinoma can sometimes be disfiguring if left untreated for too long. Here are the basics of this type of cancer, and information on how cosmetic reconstruction can be called for following treatment.
