Purpose of any rejuvenating procedures is to return to face its shape which was peculiar to it 10-15 years ago. After the procedure face looks natural.
The achieved result is turning time 10 years or more back. At the same time we avoid so-called effect of “surgeons overdone” when the face looks unnatural and over-lifted.
Age, sun, genetics and gravitation together with other factors make changes to the shape and appearance of the face.
Common problems associated with aging are:
- sagging skin;
- aged, tired and frown face.
There are a number of tactics and procedures created to deal with these problems. They are domestic facials, cosmetic procedures, Botox injections, chemical peels. Finally it can be plastic surgery.
Facelift methods are aimed to restore soft tissues of the face which are responsible for its young shape. Surgeons do not just smooth the skin and remove wrinkles but also restructure details. During surgery sagged tissues mobilize and move to its original position which is characteristic for young face.
There are several types of lifting: lifting of the top, middle or bottom part of the face. These operations can be performed in combination, depending on clinical situation.
The ultimate purpose is to restore balanced correlation between different tissues. Deep tissues of the face lied beneath the dermal layer (often called SMAS) are shifted during the operation in the way to restore sagged tissues of cheeks, cheekbones, jaw and neck.
To increase the volume it is possible to use endotine implant which helps to fix soft tissues in optimum position. If the patient has a marked subcutaneous fat layer or full cheeks the surgeon may recommend to supplement plastic surgery by facial liposculpture and/or removal of the buccal fat pad.
The operation will be supplemented by lipofilling if there is an age degradation of adipose tissue and if some face areas lost their volume. Lipofilling will relieve the patient of “tired” appearance and will emphasize young proportions.
Recovery period after surgery
Slight discomfort – this is all that the patient usually feels after surgery. If facelift is complemented by lipofilling or dermabrasion then recovery period may be extended to up to two weeks.
Sutures are usually removed after five days while clips which are used to fix the tissue at the hairline are left for 8-10 days. Final result can be evaluated not earlier than in 3 months after the lifting. During this period edema should completely disappear and scars will mature.

Rhinoplasty is the type of plastic surgery used to correct nose shape. Rhinoplasty is intended to improve the functioning (when difficulties with breathing take place) or correct the appearance of the nose.
Why rhinoplasty is one of the most popular plastic surgery operations?
Nose is one of the key characteristics of a face. Even a small change of nose shape can greatly improve the appearance.
Patients reduce or increase the nose size, change the shape of the tip, remove the buldge.
Using rhinoplasty it is possible to correct birth defects or injuries of the nose and remove some breathing problems.
What shape will the nose have after rhinoplasty?
Of course there is no “universal ideal” nose which the surgeon will “make” for you. Each face is unique. And plastic surgeon chooses an individual approach for the correction of each nose.
The goal of rhinoplasty is to keep the recognizability of the patient and at the same time improve the aesthetic parameters of the face. If necessary the surgeon will ask you to make a computed tomography to be sure that rhinoplasty will not affect free breathing negatively. Computer modeling can be carried out before the operation.
Recovery period after surgery
Patients typically stay in a cast during 5-7 days. Cast has a protective and stabilizing function. Edema is usually kept up to 2 weeks.

Blepharoplasty is a procedure that solves the problems such as:
- “bags” under the eyes;
- eyes asymmetry;
- overhanging eyelids.
These problems can make look older even young face.
All of them are caused by wrong diet, bad environment, heredity and sunbathing abuse. So everyone can encounter such problems.
Eyelid surgery is an effective way to hide age and rejuvenate the face. In addition blepharoplasty can help to get rid of wrinkles as well as to remove any excessive swelling.
Upper eyelid surgery is used not only with cosmetic purpose but sometimes for functionality improving: overhanging eyelids can obstruct the field of view.
Indications for blepharoplasty
The procedure is recommended in the following cases:
- excessive skin hides the natural fold of the upper eyelids;
- overhanging eyelids obstruct the field of view;
- swollen upper eyelids make your eyes look tired and sad;
- lower eyelid is stretched; there are many fine wrinkles that resemble the texture of corrugated paper;
- there are bags and dark circles under eyes;
- upper eyelid is too small or not sufficiently smooth to apply makeup.
Types of blepharoplasty
Blepharoplasty can be divided to:
- blepharoplasty of lower eyelids;
- blepharoplasty of upper eyelids;
- circular blepharoplasty.
The first type is used to remove the hernias and swellings, which make the face look tired. In another words it is used for cosmetic purposes.
Blepharoplasty of upper eyelids can be recommended by ophthalmologist to improve vision. “Extra” portion of the eyelid is removed during this procedure.
Circular blepharoplasty combines both types and carried out simultaneously on the upper and lower eyelid.
Depending on the complexity of the operation doctor will suggest local or general anesthesia.
When local anesthesia is chosen the drug is injected into the area around the eyes. To enhance the effect your doctor may suggest to take sedatives which will remove the emotional stress. When blepharoplasty is combined with other operations surgeons advise to use general anesthesia. It lasts from 20 minutes to two hours.
Section line at blepharoplasty goes by the natural eyelid folds so that the scars will be completely invisible in the folds of the skin. After operation your surgeon will put removable or bioresorbable suture thread and use special skin adhesive or surgical tape.
Recovery period after surgery
Typically blepharoplasty does not require hospitalization. You return home the same or the next day.
But it will be better if somebody help you with housework during couple of days.
We will be glad to offer our service with that!
Swelling, irritation or eye dryness can cause inconvenience after surgery. All of these can be controlled by medicines, compresses and special ointments which contain antibiotics. Ice packs will reduce swelling.
On the third day after operation, on the contrary, warm compresses will be necessary. They will accelerate the healing of stitches. If dissolvable stitches were used then traces of them will disappear in 4-5 days.
Preliminary results can be evaluated in one or two weeks when swelling and bruises will vanish.
In a month and a half you will fully enjoy your new appearance: traces of fatigue, age and burden of problems will disappear from your face.
Otoplasty is an operation that in most cases is aimed to correct protruding ears.
According to statistics the problem occurs in 5% of the population. In most cases defect is bilateral. Girls suffer more often than boys. The extent of protruding ears is caused by genes and heredity.
Otoplasty can also help to change the ear size.
Surgery is usually performed under local anesthesia.
In most cases otoplasty is one-day surgery. Elastic pressure bandage should be worn. It will be removed after a week.
Ears at this time will still be swollen and reddish but these symptoms disappear within 2-3 weeks.
