Eyelids

Dr. Kien Ha has helped numerous eyelid surgery patients rejuvenate their appearance. As a dedicated facial cosmetic surgery specialist, he understands that drooping eyelids and unsightly bags under the eyes can have an impact on one's self-confidence.

Eyelid surgery (also called an eye lift or blepharoplasty) aims to remove excessive skin, fat, and sometimes muscle, from the upper and the lower eyelids. An eye lift can correct droopy upper lids as well as puffy bags below the eyes, which can make you look older or more tired than you feel. Blepharoplasty can be performed in conjunction with other facial procedures like a rhinoplasty, face lift or brow lift.

Eyelid surgery is performed on men and women of all ages who want to improve their appearance and self-image. The best candidates for eyelid surgery are men and women who are physically healthy, but have droopy, baggy, or puffy eyelids.

The result of blepharoplasty is a more alert and rested appearance. You may find that you feel more confident in business and social situations. Friends and colleagues may comment on your improved appearance without realizing that you had surgery.

Many patients choose to combine face lift with eyelid surgery for complete facial rejuvenation. While face lift surgery is successful at smoothing your facial skin and tightening underlying tissue, eyelid surgery can correct droopy or puffy eyelids. The combination of refreshed skin and brighter looking eyes can help take years off your appearance, greatly improving your self-confidence

Face

Dr. Kien Ha has years of experience helping patients achieve the facial appearance they desire. As a skilled facial plastic surgery specialist, he is able to pinpoint and treat certain problem areas such as sagging skin and fat deposits to rejuvenate his patients’ faces.

As we age, the effects of sun exposure, gravity, and the stresses of everyday life can be seen on our faces and jaw line. Folds and fat deposits appear around the neck, the jaw line grows slack, and creases form between the mouth and nose.
Men and women whose face and neck are beginning to droop, but still have some elasticity in their skin and a well-defined bone structure, are good candidates for face lift surgery. A face lift is a great way to make you look younger and enhance your self-confidence.

A face lift smoothes the loose skin on your face and neck, tightens underlying tissues, and removes excess fat. As a result, your face will appear firm and refreshed.

Dr Ha offers the following Facelift procedures and will tailor a treatment specific to your needs:

  • Mini facelift (S-lift)
  • Deep plane facelift
  • Neck lift

Browlift

Sagging or ptosis of the forehead and eyebrow area is a very common sign of aging. A Forehead Lift is used to correct a drooping brow and reduce the horizontal lines and furrows (worry lines) that often make a person appear tired, sad or angry. The procedure results in a refreshed, youthful appearance to the forehead area above the eyes. It also improves the droopy eyelid appearance and is commonly performed with a Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery). The aims of a Browlift is to produce a natural correction of the ageing process by removing the lines of wear and tear. The procedure can produce a significant improvement in the appearance for many years.

  • Direct browlift
  • Mid forehead lift
  • Temporal browlift
  • Endoscopic browlift

Otoplasty

Otoplasty (prominent ear surgery) is performed to: pin back protruding ears (bat ears), corrects the size and shape of ears that do not match and to reduce excess cartilage in the ears.

Individual with prominent or abnormal appearing ears can be subject to ridicule and cruel remarks from their peers. This in turn lowers their self-esteem and confidence. Otoplasty can be performed to place the ears back in a more natural position dramatically improving the aesthetic appearance.

For children it is advised to wait until they are at least 5 years old. An advantage in performing otoplasty in children is that the cartilage is still soft and easily moulded, as cartilage becomes firmer with age. However, otoplasty is still very effective in teenagers and adults. Correction of severe deformities of the ears is more complex and can be discussed on an individual basis.
