If you are dissatisfied with any of your features, you have an option in San Jose to improve your appearance through cosmetic surgery for the nose, ears, chin and cheeks.
RhinoplastyRhinoplasty is a surgical procedure in which deformities of the nose are corrected by removing, rearranging or reshaping bone or cartilage. Both profile and frontal face views can be altered through rhinoplasty. Typical reasons for the surgery are to improve the angle, reduce the size of the nose or remove a bump. Rhinoplasty can be performed in our Los Gatos office or a San Jose area outpatient surgical facility or a hospital under general or local anesthesia. The surgery can last from one and a half to two hours or more depending upon the extent of the surgery.
OtoplastyProminent or protruding ears can be a source of embarrassment and mental anguish for many people, especially children. Otoplasty or surgery of the ears - sometimes called "pinning back" the ears can correct these problems. It can be performed on anyone over the age of five or six years old, the age at which the ear growth is almost complete.
Otoplasty can be performed in the office, an outpatient surgical facility or a hospital. It can be done under general or local anesthesia and can take up to two hours or more depending upon the extent of surgery.
Chin and Cheek AugmentationMany people have a chin that is just too small for their face. When one has a lack of chin projection, the face is weakened and this can cause the nose to look larger than it is. The chin can be corrected by surgically inserting a small synthetic implant over the natural bone.
High cheekbones are a sign of beauty. Unfortunately, not everyone is born with that look. Cheek augmentation can increase projection. The procedure consists of placing a synthetic implant over the natural cheekbone. The implants come in a variety of sizes and shapes.
These procedures are often done in combination or with other procedures such as rhinoplasty or a face lift. They can be done under either a local or general anesthetic and can be performed in the hospital or in an outpatient surgical suite.
Lip AugmentationThin upper and lower lips can be made fuller with a simple operation that leaves no visible scars. The lips can be augmented with either the patient's own tissues or a synthetic implant material. This results in fuller, more desirable lips that look and feel entirely natural.
