There are two basic groups of candidates seeking facial plastic surgery. The first group are those that have been dissatisfied with a particular facial feature for as long as they can remember. They consult plastic surgeons asking about altering their nasal shape (please see our Rhinoplasty page), or pinning back their ears, or augmenting their chins or cheeks. The second group are those that see age-related changes in their faces. They seek advice about rejuvenation or refreshment.
As for the folk that want to look younger, they often say that they feel younger than how they appear when looking into a mirror. Some strive to keep business opportunities open as they compete against younger colleagues in an upwardly mobile work environment. Whatever your motivation, when you consult our skilled plastic surgeon, Dr. Eric Okamoto, he will analyze your face and will offer his opinions as to what features are showing age and what to do about them. Sometimes the forces of age are more noticeable in one particular area, like the forehead or eyelids – this can be remedied with a brow lift or blepharoplasty. More often, multiple facial-neck areas are simultaneously descending with gravity whereupon a combination of facial procedures (e.g. brow lift, blepharoplasty, facelift, and fat injections) will be recommended at the same time.
If you seek a facial analysis and options for cosmetic enhancement, Dr. Okamoto will counsel you in a manner that is personal, thorough and unique.
