New York Facial Plastic Surgery

Your FaceIf you're unhappy with some aspect of your face, you'll be relieved to know that a lot of other people have the same feeling. Not long ago, a Psychology Today survey found that 60 million Americans do not like their noses. Thirty million do not like their chins. Six million do not like their eyes. And six million do not like their ears.

Every year, two million of these people have plastic surgery to improve their appearance. And it has very little to do with vanity. It's simply like any other physical problem people may have and wish to correct. Like bad eyesight. Or poor hearing. Or crooked teeth.

Rhinoplasty patients in Manhattan, NYC can revise a nose that's too big or too small. People choosing a face lift can turn back the clok on facial aging and look fantastic for their age. And procedures like chin augmentation and otoplasty can address other facial features that may make a person feel self-conscious.

Fortunately, New York facial plastic surgery can improve many of these situations — some of them permanently. And, if you have a problem that makes you self-conscious or unhappy, it's great to know that you can do something about it.

Can you imagine someone walking around half-blind because glasses are "unnatural"? Have you ever heard someone boast that their crooked teeth "give them character"? Or that their hearing problem is "part of their personality"? Of course not, and as plastic surgery has grown in popularity, it has become as accepted as eyeglasses and contact lenses, dental braces and hearing aids. And it is just as useful.

In addition to correcting problems we may be born with, plastic surgery procedures like a face lift in New York can also help with conditions that develop as we age. They can be inherited, or due to damage or abuse.

For A Moment, Consider Everything Your Face Is Subjected To

  • Constant use and exposure 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
  • Millions of laughs, tears, smiles, facial acrobatics, and a lifetime of talking.
  • Sunburn. Makeup. Worry. Gravity. And of course, the inevitable "aging process."

The Damage Is Easy To See

  • Laugh lines. Worry lines. Frown lines.
  • Grooves, wrinkles, creases, and crow's feet.
  • Bags, pouches, folds and indentations.
  • Excess skin that sags. And droops. And eventually changes the shape and characteristics of your face. A change for the worse. It can make you look old. Tired. And unhappy. Even when that's not how you feel.

But There's A Lot You Can Do About It

  • Loose skin can be made tighter.
  • Wrinkles can be smoothed out.
  • Bags, pouches, creases and lines can be eliminated.
  • Noses, chins and cheeks can be made smaller. Or larger. And shaped to complement your face.
  • Droopy eyebrows and sagging eyelids can be elevated and brightened.
  • Excess skin and fatty tissue can be removed.
