Browlift

A browlift (also called a forehead lift) can lift the eyebrows and rejuvenate the forehead, eyebrows and the area around the eyes. It involves releasing various tissues, including muscles, and correcting the droop of the upper third of the face that occurs with aging. The result is elevation of the brow, shaping of the eyebrow, improvement of the look of the upper eyelid and some improvement in the shape of the lower eyelid.

Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)

Blepharoplasty can be done on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both.  These procedures can rejuvenate the face and improve the “tired look”.  Upper eyelid surgery can remove excess skin and fat and is tailored to the needs of each individual patient.  The lower eyelid surgery removes excess skin and fat.  It can decrease the bags under the eyes, reshapes the eyes, and remove wrinkles as well.

Upper Lid Blepharoplasty
Excess eyelid skin and fat can be removed to give a more youthful appearance.  The incision is made in the upper eyelid crease. Some patients need to have fat removed but some need to have fat added.  These procedures can be done under local anesthetic or general anesthetic depending on what needs to be done.  In some people, the eyelids are not the source of the droopy, tired appearance but rather the brow is.  Therefore, a browlift may be a better option for them.

Lower Lid Blepharoplasty
Excess eyelid skin, lower eyelid bags, wrinkles and fat can be removed.  Under general anesthetic, the lower eyelid can be reshaped and give the whole eye a more youthful and pleasing appearance.  Various incisions can be made but the two most common ones are the traditional lower eyelid incision or the transconjunctival incision (inner part of the eyelid).

Otoplasty (Ear Tuck)

Otoplasties are covered as an insured procedure in Saskatchewan if you are under the age of 18. Some people, over the age of 18, may wish to have an otoplasty to improve facial contour and aesthetics. This can be done under general or local anesthetic. The ears can be tucked back closer to the head. This is achieved by reshaping the cartilage and suturing the ears back.

Face and Neck Lifts

With time, the face and neck can develop loose skin, sagging of the soft tissues and lose volume.  Facelifts (also called rhytidectomy or rhytidoplasty) and neck tightening (also called platysmaplasty) can rejuvenate the midface and neck to improve the signs of aging.  A facelift also lifts loose skin and soft tissue in the neck. These procedures can improve fullness in the midface, smooth out the jawline and produce better contour of the neck.

The goal of the traditional facelift involves re-suspending the soft tissue and some skin removal to give a more youthful midface and neck.  A platysmaplasty is a different surgical procedure that may be used at the same time or at a different surgical procedure. It involves an incision underneath the chin and tightening up the neck muscle, the platysma.  Sometimes, rejuvenation of the neck only requires liposuction.  Nonsurgical techniques are also available for the neck and face.
