4 Smaller Facial Surgeries that Can Deliver Big Results

Summertime (medium format image)Whether the desire is to appear thinner, correct an asymmetry or combat the results of aging, cosmetic surgery can help. There isn’t always a need for large-scale measures to achieve large-scale results, as these four smaller facial surgeries prove.


Rhinoplasty, or cosmetic nose surgery, is an incredibly versatile procedure that can be used to smooth the profile or sculpt the bridge of the nose. Other common areas of focus include fixing a prominent, drooping nasal tip or large and upturned nostrils. Of course, rhinoplasty can also be used to correct nasal asymmetry and some breathing impairments.

Eyelid Surgery

Also known as blepharoplasty, surgery of the eyelids can be performed on both the upper and lower lid for a variety of effects. If puffiness is an issue or loose, sagging skin impairs vision, then eyelid surgery can rejuvenate the eye area. In addition, the elimination of excess skin, wrinkles and bags can help you look years younger.

Under Chin Liposuction

Liposuction is used to combat stubborn and hereditary pockets of fat such as those occurring under the chin. The appearance of jowls and fatty deposits commonly referred to as the “double chin” can occur even in young individuals and those who eat right and stay active. These problems can be minimized with some well-targeted liposuction below the chin, which can help liposculpt your facial profile.
