Nasal Reshaping Surgery - (Rhinoplasty)
Dr. Kevin Smith can correct nearly any kind of nasal imperfection with advanced rhinoplasty techniques. Noses that are too wide or long can be reduced, oversized or improperly formed tips can be reshaped, and crooked or twisted bridges can be straightened. Dr. Smith can even improve airflow for people whose noses are internally malformed. Most importantly, the final result of rhinoplasty will be a nose that is flattering and in proportion to the rest of your face. Computer Imaging allows you and Dr. Smith the opportunity to view and discuss what you might look like following surgery.

 

There are no set standards for the definitions of a beautiful nose. Face shape, placement of other facial features, even one’s own opinion: all of these variables help determine whether a nose is aesthetically pleasing. If you feel that a different nose would improve the appearance of your face, rhinoplasty may benefit you. Houston-area cosmetic surgeon Kevin Smith is extremely skilled in the artistic considerations necessary for a successful nose surgery, and can help you make the right decisions for the best results.

 

The surgery can be performed as an out patient Procedure under general anesthesia and takes approximately 2-3 hours to complete. A splint will be placed on the nose to keep it stabilized and removed after one week.

 

Most patients resume daily activities in 7-10 days. Exercise and other strenuous activities may be resumed in about 3 weeks, and it is crucial to avoid hitting or rubbing the nose for 6 weeks.

Facelift & Mini Facelift - (Rhytidectomy)
If you have begun to notice the signs of facial aging such as jowls, flattened cheeks, and sagging skin, a modified facelift can help turn back the clock. Dr. Kevin Smith customizes your facelift based on your specific needs. His philosphy is to look as young as you can for as long as you can.

Eyelid Surgery - (Blepharoplasty)
Because they are the natural focal points of your face, your eyes are considered the best representation of your inner thoughts, moods, and even personality. As you age sagging upper eyelids and baggy lower eyelids can make you appear tired, sad and older than your true age. For some people, excess skin on the upper lids can even impair vision.

 

Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to lift droopy eyelids and remove excess fat deposits or bags around the eyes, resulting in eyes that look fresh, well-rested, and alert. The incisions are typically made in the crease of your upper eyelids and just below the lashes on the lower eyelids. Eyelid surgery usually takes between 1-3 hours as an out patient procedure under local, twighlight, or general anesthesia (if having any other procedure).

 

Bruising may occur under the lower lids and possibly linger for 7-10 days. Scarring is minimal after 3 weeks and usually undetectable in six months. Fine lines and wrinkles can be erased with the CO2 laser.

Forehead Lift
Do people often ask you if you are tired, angry, or upset — even when you are happy and rested? Has age caused the skin on your forehead to droop or furrow together? If these situations describe you, you may be presenting an appearance to others that does not accurately represent the way you feel. A forehead lift may be able to correct deep frown lines, horizontal forehead creases, and droopy eyebrows, helping to match your expression to your mood.

 

The incisions are hidden inside the hairline and virtually invisible. Because the face is a complex interconnection of muscles, a consultation is especially important before undergoing a forehead lift. Houston cosmetic surgeon Kevin Smith can examine the underlying cause of your wrinkles and determine whether a forehead lift or another form of cosmetic treatment is right for you. In certain cases, the effect of a forehead lift can be magnified by combining it with other procedures, such as a facelift, eyelid surgery, or laser resurfacing.

Chin Surgery - (Mentoplasty)
Chin surgery, also called genioplasty, can dramatically improve the appearance of a weak chin or overly rounded face. The most common chin surgery procedure is augmentation with a chin implant, in which a custom-shaped implant is used to enhance the size and shape of the chin.

Ear Surgery - (Otoplasty)
Ear surgery, also called otoplasty, can be performed on patients of all ages. The most common uses of ear surgery are to reduce the size of large ears and to reposition ears that stick out too far from the head. Otoplasty may also be used to reshape ears that have been malformed due to birth defects.

 

The majority of ear surgery is performed on school-age children, although the procedure is useful for patients of all ages. Many of Dr. Smith’s adult otoplasty patients choose to have their ears altered in order to keep their face proportional after rhinoplasty or chin implants.

Facial Liposuction
Two of the defining features of a youthful face are a well-defined jaw line and a pleasing angle where the neck and chin meet. Chin and neck fullness or a poorly defined jaw line can create the illusion of excess weight or premature aging.

 

If you are not pleased with the loss of definition in your jaw line, chin, and neck area, liposuction may be able to improve the appearance of these areas. This is a minimally invasive surgical procedure best suited if you have excess fatty tissue of the neck, but minimal excess neck skin. Through three small, well-concealed incisions, the fatty tissue is removed by use of a specialized suction device.
