Otoplasty (ear correction)
Prominent ears can be corrected in a number of different ways; the technique is adapted to what the issues are for the patient, and may include rolling the edge back and bringing the ear closer to the scalp skin. Scars are usually well hidden behind the ear.
Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty)
The skin around the eyes is the thinnest in the body, so when we age the eyes are often the area that shows this first. The upper eyelid can be reduced and lifted, with the scar being hidden in the crease above the eyelid. Lower eyelids are more technically difficult because of the junction with between the lower eyelid and cheek skin and underlying structures. There are a number of techniques that can address the sagging tissues and place scars in hidden areas.
Newer techniques have a faster recovery and an almost invisible scar in the hairline. With this technique patients can achieve a very natural elevation of the brow with almost no signs of surgery.
