Cosmetic Surgery

Cosmetic surgery procedures are gaining more popularity every year all over the world, and some of them have even become increasingly mainstream. These face and body modification procedures enhance the look or function of certain areas of the human body and can significantly affect our confidence and self-esteem.

Facial cosmetic surgery can be performed on your skin, entire face, eyes, ears, nose, mouth/lips and chin. The reasons for undergoing a facial plastic surgery procedure may vary and usually involves aesthetic or medical reasons. For example, if you have a septum deviation, rhinoplasty will help you get not only get a more beautiful nose but also to solve breathing problems caused by crooked or deviated nasal cavity. It is also crucial to find reputable cosmetic surgeons in Beachwood, OH to ensure that the procedure will be done correctly and safely.

Cosmetic Procedures Performed on Skin

Facial skin is an area with the most possible options for cosmetic procedures, starting from face and forehead lifts to doing chemical peels, dermabrasion, laser resurfacing and facial fillers. Most of these procedures can be combined to optimize the human appearance.   Cosmetic surgeries that are performed on facial skin include:

Due to aging, makeup and other factors, facial skin loses elasticity over time, becoming less firm and looser. A face lift is a procedure that will tighten your skin and tone your face giving it a youthful, fresh look. The same procedure can be performed on the forehead, and its effects often include reducing baggy-looking upper eyelids. This plastic surgery procedure can often leave scars that are well-hidden by the surgeon. However, if you want to avoid this level of invasiveness, you can opt for a thermage that will also tighten up your skin.

For a softer and healthier-looking skin, women usually do a chemical peel – a cosmetic procedure that consists of a chemical exfoliation treatment that is applied to facial skin. By removing the skin’s top and older layer, a surgeon will reveal beautiful and fresh skin. Similarly to a chemical peel, dermabrasion is used to remove certain skin irregularities and reveal young, pink and smoother layer of skin.

Facial filler products such as Restylane, Hylaform, and Collagen are injected into the skin to reduce wrinkles and give your face a firmer tone and more volume. To gain more volume in some regions of the face, you can also use botox. However, unlike fillers, botox doesn’t fill up the space. Instead, it weakens the muscles responsible for frown lines and wrinkles around the eyes.

Cosmetic Procedures Performed on Ears and Nose

Ear cosmetic surgeries are not uncommon as we may think.  Many people decide to reshape their ears due to aesthetic reasons or because their ears have been misshapen or disfigured in some way. Some people choose to reshape their ears if they have been deformed by accident or a congenital disability. Ear reshaping is also called otoplasty, and it is performed to alter the appearance of our ears – usually by pinning them back to a more normal position.


When it comes to rhinoplasty, this reconstructive surgery procedure is used to change or correct the natural shape of the nose, as well as to alter the size of the patient’s nostrils through careful bone and cartilage reconstruction.
