Thanks to cosmetic surgery techniques, you don't have to live with the lines and wrinkles that make you look older. Chetan S. Shah, cosmetic surgeryM.D.; Chirag Shah, M.D.; Angana Shah, M.D.; Rakesh Patel, M.D., Samir Undavia, M.D.; Dean Drezner, M.D.; Gregory Smith, M.D.; and Aleen Lee, M.D.; your Lawrenceville, NJ, doctors, are here to share information about several surgical options for your face and neck.

Eyelid surgery

Over the years, gravity causes your eyelids to droop and can even interfere with your vision. During eyelid surgery, doctors remove excess skin, fatty deposits or fat and can eliminate bags under your eyes. Eyelid surgery can be performed on the upper or lower lids, or both.

Rhinoplasty

A rhinoplasty, or nose job, not only changes the appearance of your nose but is also used to correct a deviated septum or other issues that can affect breathing. Because incisions are made inside your nose, you won't have to worry about visible scars.

Facelift surgery

During facelift surgery, your doctor tightens the muscles and tissues in your face and pulls the skin tightly over your face to reduce wrinkles, lines and sagging. The sutures from the facelift procedure are hidden in your hairline to make them less obvious

Neck lift surgery

Neck lift surgery is often done at the same time as a facelift. Your doctor removes excess skin and tightens loose neck muscles.

Eyebrow and forehead lift

Gravity can also cause a sagging brow and wrinkled forehead. Fortunately, these problems are easily corrected with an eyebrow and forehead lift. During the procedure, your doctor lifts and smooths the skin by making a small incision in the front of your scalp.

Mentoplasty

Mentoplasty is a common procedure used to correct a receding chin. During surgery, your doctor adds an implant to your chin that helps your face look more balanced. The procedure is often performed in conjunction with a rhinoplasty.
