Below is the love story of some of the most popular treatments and what goes well with them.

Reality Check

While you are on your way to that life changing moment you have been pining  for a long time, it would be good to have a heart-to-heart talk with your surgeon and try to have the most accurate picture of what shall happen to your face after the procedure. Be wary of surgeons who cannot offer you a detailed and blow-by-blow account of how the finished product would look like because more often than not, they really do not have any idea how the surgery is going to turn out.

Aside from confirming the professional capacity of the surgeon, this conversation will give you the most honest expectations that you need to set your mind to form the right expectations.

What is Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty, or more popularly known as “nose jobs” is the procedure used to correct or reconstruct the form of the nose for aesthetic and physiological reasons like breathing problems. Though most patients seek nose jobs to look better.

There are actually two types of rhinoplasty: closed rhinoplasty and open rhinoplasty. The surgeon creates a functional, aesthetic, and facially proportionate nose by separating the nasal skin and the soft tissues from the osseo-cartilaginous nasal framework and then correcting them according to the need of the patient.

Rhinoplasty goes with Dermal Fillers

A lot of patients want to avoid or delay surgical time and they really dread this a lot. For such patients, there are fillers that are used as camouflage for this procedure. Though considered a relatively simple procedure, it should still be applied with great care to avoid possible complications.

Rhinoplasty with Chin Augmentation

A very prominent part of the face, the chin actually accentuates the shape of the face and it therefore one of the most requested areas for surgery. For this part, implants are used to change the underlying structure of the face, which is meant to balance the features of the face. There are some who need to reduce the height and this is addressed by chin rounding or what is also called as osteotomy.

Since the nose is strategically placed in the middle of the face and actually creates the right perspective for the other parts in relation to it. Surgeons would also recommend getting rhinoplasty after the procedure, specifically when the change on the chin is very drastic. Rhinoplasty should come after the chin augmentation, right after the face has adjusted to its new size and look.

Rhinoplasty with Face Lifts

For those who are aiming for maximum results, they get the nose job done with a face-lift. And if the patient really wants a complete overhaul, cheek and chin implants are recommended to them. The complementary treatments can be performed at the same time with the rhinoplasty.

As easy and convenient as it sounds, it would still be a good idea to get a surgeon who really understands proportion because the treatments combined with the nose job can drastically change the way the patient looks. If you are just looking for enhancements, they may not be the treatments for you.

Blephroplasty with other treatments

What is Blephroplasty?

This kind of surgery aims to correct the defects or deformities of the eyelids and to aesthetically modify the eye region of the face. Excess tissues are removed or re-positioned with the use of excisions. It normally gets rid of functional and cosmetic problems of the periorbita, which is the area from the eyebrow to the upper portion of the cheek. A majority of the patients are women and only takes anywhere form an hour to two hours to complete the procedure.

Blephroplasty with Double Eyelid Surgery

A recommended treatment after, the double eyelid surgery refreshes the eyes natural contour, which is done by the removal of the excess skin, fat, and muscles from the eyelids.

It also makes the eye area more attractive by correcting “hooded eyes” that will make them look wider and youthful. The muscles around the eyes are also tightened which makes allows the contour to appear more natural. More than aesthetics, it is also supposed to improve your vision because of the excess skin that it was removed.

Blephroplasty is also given with a procedure that removes that epicanthal fold (i.e. epicanthoplasty). Canthopexy, which is a type of stitch, is then placed under the outer corner of the lower eyelid inside the tissue. This effectively keeps the eyelid’s position to remain fixed as it heals and shall be dissolved after 4-6 weeks.

Breast Augmentation and Breast Lift

For women who want to have breasts that appear fuller, rounder, and even perkier, there is breast augmentation to do the job. For the effects to be completely realized, it is often partnered with mastopexy, which is more popularly known as the breast lift.

This particular lift prevents the nipples from pointing downwards and is usually done simultaneously with breast augmentation for the nipples to be positioned in a younger looking way. It is a great way to treat breasts with implants that add volume to the upper pole. On the other hand, a breast lift alone may not allow the patient to get the desired results.

Combined breast augmentation and lift are performed by removing the excess skin using strategically placed incisions. These leave what they call lollipop scars. For the implants, silicone or saline may be used.

Eyebrow Augmentaiton and Tinting

Though not the first thing to notice on a person’s face, the eyebrows are also considered a major facial feature. A lot of procedures have been developed to alter it, either to add more hair or lose it and even to change its color.

To remove hair, electronic tweezing, waxing and threading are the most common methods to use. In some cases, small scissors are used to trim the eyebrows. The aforementioned techniques are confirmed to be painful. But as most patients think, “no pain no gain.” To help ease the pain, ice cubes can be put on them to help them become numb to the pain. For those who prefer the thick brows, there are eyebrow transplants for this purpose. This involves the use of individual strands of the eyebrow that are mimicked for that sought-after natural look.

Now there would come a time when the plucked hair will not grow again, patients who do not want to wear eraser-ready brows have opted to have them tattooed. As a permanent solution, the tattoo also gives the patient the liberty to choose the kind of eyebrows that the patient needs.
