Improving Your Nose Without a Nose Job

Nasal Procedures Beverly Hills CA

Despite its central position on your face, the nose should never attract attention. The nose should be in proper balance and proportion within the face to allow more desirable facial features (the lips or eyes) to be highlighted.

Rhinoplasty can certainly alter the shape or size of the nose to improve its appearance. However, not everyone wants to undergo nose surgery, and there are times when altering other facial features can improve the appearance of the nose. From liquid rhinoplasty to chin implants, patients can gain a more attractive nose without a traditional nose job.

Turning Back “The Hands of Time”

Beverly Hills Center for Plastic and Laser Surgery logo

When it comes to discussing ways to delay or reverse the signs of aging, the face is undoubtedly the hottest topic. However, just like the face, the hands are also noticeable to others and can suffer from the natural aging process. Patients often encounter dark spots (or sun spots) on the back of the hands and their tendons, bones and veins become more prominent as collagen and fat diminish.

Do You Have a Weak Chin?

Face of Woman - Beverly Hills CA Plastic Surgeon

You may not realize it, but the appearance of your chin plays a significant role in how attractive your overall face is. While you may not hear people comment on how beautiful someone’s chin looks, its size, definition and proportion to the rest of the face can make a dramatic difference in one’s profile and overall facial appearance. Therefore, chin augmentation represents one of the most overlooked yet influential facial cosmetic procedures available. It is a relatively simple procedure that can restore balance between the nose and the chin by improving the appearance of a “weak chin.”

How Do Lasers Tighten The Skin?
Today patients have the opportunity to erase wrinkles and tighten their facial skin without going under the knife. While fillers and injectables are widely used and typically well understood, there is another method of skin tightening that is highly effective. Laser technology has brought patients a minimally invasive treatment option for turning back the hands of time.
How do lasers work on the skin?
Laser skin tightening systems utilize an infrared light source to tighten skin by heating the collagen under the skin’s surface. This causes the skin to contract or tighten. Results are immediately noticeable; however, further improvement in skin tightening can be seen over the course of the following 3 months in most cases. Rest assured that laser skin tightening is safe and FDA approved for the reduction of wrinkles and fine lines on the face. It improves the laxity of the skin that is commonly lost with age. It is common for patients to need more than one treatment (spaced one month apart) to achieve optimal results.
What are the benefits of lasers?
While the results do not compare to a surgical facelift, patients benefit from a procedure that requires no downtime or recovery. It is also a quick and virtually painless treatment when used with a local anesthetic. This comfort and convenience factor can outweigh the more dramatic results obtained by plastic surgery for many patients.
Who is a candidate?
Laser skin tightening is an excellent non-surgical solution for adults who have mild to moderate signs of aging, including sagging skin and wrinkles around the face and neck. It can be used for men and women of all skin types and skin tones. In general, patients between the ages of 30 and 60 benefit most. However, if you have severe skin laxity, a facelift may be more appropriate.
