Your face is the first thing people notice about you and unlike other areas of the body, you can’t cover it up with clothes. Why not put your best face forward? Dr Cope’s facial surgery aesthetic is to enhance and harmonise your features, so you look like a better you, rather than a stranger. Dr Cope can talk you through the available procedures to make the most of your best features, fix the problem areas or refresh the changes of age, leaving you looking naturally more attractive.
The eyelids are one of the first areas of the face to show changes with ageing, commonly with drooping upper eyelids or puffiness of the lower eyelids, giving a tired appearance. Blepharoplasty is an operation designed to remove excess skin folds and bulging fat bags. It rejuvenates the upper part of the face, making you look fresher and more relaxed.
With ageing the skin, fat, and muscles of the cheeks and neck become loose and sag, resulting in lines and folds between the cheeks and lips, over the jawline, and in the neck. This type of facial surgery “turns back the clock“, improving the visible signs of ageing by removing excess skin and fat and tightening the underlying muscles of the face and neck. It rejuvenates the middle and lower part of the face and improves the jawline, making you look fresher and more youthful and relaxed, and feeling more self-confident.
Rhinoplasty is a common type of facial surgery, aimed at improving the external appearance of the nose. This may be performed to restore the shape of your nose after an injury, or as a purely cosmetic procedure if you wish to change the way your nose has developed. At the same time as altering the external appearance of the nose, your surgeon will also treat any problems with breathing that you may have. Changing the appearance of the nose will enhance your facial appearance, bringing your nose into harmony with the rest of your face.
Otoplasty is a commonly performed operation to correct ears which stick out too far from the side of the head and to improve the shape of the ears. It can be performed to correct differences between the two ears as well as to bring the ear position more into harmony with the rest of the face.
With ageing the position of the eyebrows gradually become lower, and lines develop between the eyebrows and on the forehead from muscle movement. Drooping eyebrows can also contribute to excess skin developing on the eyelids, which often makes people look tired. *Browlift facial surgery in Sydney by Dr. Cope can help turn back the clock, improving the visible signs of ageing by returning the eyebrows to a higher position and reducing lines on the forehead, resulting in a fresher and more youthful and relaxed look.
Skin rejuvenation with non-surgical laser treatments such as the medical grade Fraxel re:store DUAL laser or Thermage skin-tightening laser improve the texture and texture of the skin, reversing sun damage and the ageing process. Many people who have facial surgery also receive additional benefit from these lasers. These lasers are being used increasingly with anti-wrinkle treatments preventatively slow down the ageing process, delaying the need for surgery.
