Facial Plastic Surgery In Hawaii
Face Lift | Neck Lift (Rhytidectomy)
The facelift remains the only viable option in restoring a youthful appearance to the lower face and neck. A facelift smoothes and firms the skin of the face and neck to restore a more rested and youthful appearance.
Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)
Blepharoplasty can reduce droopy or hooded eyelids, restore the contour to the lids and eliminate the protruding fat bags under the eyes. In some cases, eyelid surgery may also correct severe hooding of the upper eyelids called ptosis, which can obstruct peripheral vision and reduce the range of upward vision. The overall result of eyelid rejuvenation is a subtle but remarkable change that produces a more youthful and less tired appearance.
Forehead Lift and Brow Lift
Forehead lifts are used when there is a sagging eyebrow or deep furrows between the eyes. A forehead or brow lift tightens loose skin and in some cases, removes the excess, and forehead wrinkling and drooping brows can be modified.
Nose Reshaping (Rhinoplasty)
Rhinoplasty can be used to improve the way the nose looks in proportion with the other facial features, as well as to correct functional problems including breathing obstructions and traumatic injuries. The nose should be de-emphasized so that the other attractive facial features can be appreciated.
Chin Reshaping (Genioplasty)
A strong chin is considered an asset in our society and thus can give a person more confidence and self-esteem. An overall assessment of one’s facial features and profile is required to determine if a chin implant will be of benefit in creating harmony between the nose, chin, and neck and create the desired appearance.

Smooth skin and full lips are associated with youth and beauty. As your body’s natural collagen begins to wear out with age, wrinkles and creases appear. With time, the muscle and soft tissue that give your lips their fullness will gradually diminish, making your lips look thin and indistinct.
Ear Pinning (Otoplasty)
Ear surgery or otoplasty is usually done to set prominent ears back closer to the head or to reduce the size of large ears. Ears are almost fully grown by age four, so the operation is done on children between ages of four and fourteen.
Unsightly scars have presented a problem for men and women for centuries. For many, disfiguring scars represent an unpleasant reminder of a past accident, surgery, illness, or skin disorder.
