Face & Neck Cosmetic Surgery
Full lips with an accentuated border have often been associated with beauty and youth. Lip augmentation enhances the contour and fullness of lips for a younger, healthier appearance. Unfortunately, our lips are subject to sagging as we age. The colored portion of the lips thins out and the arch of the upper arch (cupid’s bow) flattens. This problem is especially noticeable in women with naturally thin lips.
When consulting Dr. Hardaway for lip augmentation she will discuss both non-surgical and surgical options that are available in her facility. Dr. Hardaway performs filler injections such as Juvederm® and Restylane® for patients who prefer non-surgical treatments for lip augmentation.
Fat grafting is available as a surgical alternative. Other surgical options include Gore-Tex implants or the use of Alloderm to provide greater definition and a well defined border.
Lip augmentation is appropriate for patients who wish to enhance the lips they were born with and for patients who wish to restore their lips that the aging process has taken away.
Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)
We have all heard the saying “The eyes are the windows to your soul”. The signs of premature aging, such as dark circles, sagging upper and lower eyelids, fine lines and wrinkles, can make you look tired and older.
Eyelid lift (or blepharoplasty) is the recommended and most often preferred treatment for removing bags under the eyes or drooping eyelids. These aging eye conditions can add years to your appearance and even impair your vision.
If you are a woman or man whose face and neck have started to sag you may be a good candidate. Dr. Hardaway can assess your skin’s elasticity and help you determine the appropriate procedure. Remember, facelifts have been successfully performed on patients as young as 40 years old and as old as 80 years old.
Fat Transfer to the Face
Forehead / Brow Lift
During your consultation, Dr. Hardaway she will thoroughly discuss both external enhancements and internal structural corrections that will result from a Forehead Lift.
Remember, this is an investment in you and you deserve the best.
If you were born with thin lips, or if aging has caused your lips to flatten, now you can do something about it.
There are several lip augmentation procedures available today to enhance the size and shape of your lips. All involve inserting a synthetic, biocompatible material. You can even use tissue from your own body.
Lip augmentation is performed under local anesthesia on an outpatient basis. Recovery takes about a week, after which your lips will feel normal and look marvelous.
Nose Reshaping (Rhinoplasty)
Among all plastic surgery procedures, nose enhancement, or rhinoplasty, is among the most common. Nose enhancement can be performed on any part of the nose to increase or reduce its size, to modify the size and shape of the nostrils, tip of bridge or the nose, or to alter the slope or angle of the nose. Rhinoplasty may also be performed to correct an injury or birth defect, or to improve breathing.
