Wollongong Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery offer a variety of face treatments designed to improve the look and feel of your skin. From wrinkle treatment to face lifts and more, our surgeon has experience with all types of procedures.
Wrinkle Relaxant
Cosmetic
Wrinkle Relaxant Cosmetic injections are a very popular cosmetic treatment performed at our practice. This procedure can temporarily erase fine lines and wrinkles on the face, particularly furrows between the brows and crow's feet wrinkles. Wrinkle Relaxant Cosmetic consists a low concentration of muscle relaxant that works to prevent facial muscles from contracting. Since muscle contracture causes wrinkling, the treatment is highly effective in temporarily paralysing the muscles, smoothing out wrinkles and fine lines. The treatment can also decrease the presence of troublesome muscle bands that form on the neck during aging. Results appear in about one week, and patients can come in for repeat injections once the effects have worn off.
Face Lift and Neck Lift (Meloplasty)
To take about 10 years off your appearance, our surgeons can perform a meloplasty, which is a combination of a face and neck lift. Our surgeons have found that a neck lift performed together with a face lift produces more favourable results by accentuating your natural beauty while making the tell-tale signs of age fade. Patients should plan to take about two weeks off of work, and there is little pain associated with the procedure. There will be some light numbness over the face for a few weeks after surgery.
Mid-Face Lift
Reduce the signs of aging by lifting and tightening the skin on the upper portion of the face with our mid-face lift technique. We will lift facial structures over your check bones and the area under your eyelids during the procedure to give you a more youthful, toned look.
Rhinoplasty 
We will begin the rhinoplasty by making an incision inside each nostril. We will then lift up the skin of the nose and remove any hump of the bones or cartilage. Your nose will be adjusted and realigned, and when necessary, the nasal tip and cartilage will be adjusted along with testing the airway to ensure that air can pass through. We can also modify flaring nostrils to give you a more relaxed, natural facial feature. 
Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)
To eliminate wrinkles and bags on the upper and lower eyelids, we will perform eyelid surgery. We will make an incision under the eyelashes that extends out into the crow’s feet lines. We will raise the skin and remove any excess muscle, fat and skin. The procedure will give you a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance. 
Brow Lift
(Forehead Lift) 
A brow or forehead lift can reduce the prominence of the creases and wrinkles on the forehead that can often create the appearance of exhaustion, worry or anger. Our surgeons can smooth your forehead area and raise your brows into a more youthful-looking position. Forehead lift surgery is performed under general anaesthesia in the hospital and takes about 90 minutes to complete. An overnight hospital stay is typically required. Recovery for this procedure is a fairly quick process, as most patients can return to work within a week. 
Liposculpture 
Liposculpture is a cosmetic surgery technique that can remove fat from under the skin, which can reshape and re-contour the face to give it a more attractive appearance. Fat can be removed through liposuction methods or it can be added by transferring it from one area of your body to another. Liposculpture can be performed on small areas here in our practice, or under sedation or general anaesthesia in a hospital. A considerable amount of swelling can occur after the procedure, although most of it will have subsided after two weeks.
Cheek Augmentation 
Some of our patients who lack definition and prominence in their cheek bones opt for cheek augmentation to give their faces a more defined and structured look. By using fat from another part of the body, our surgeon can augment your cheeks according to your desired look to add volume and depth to your face. Recovery time is typically one week.
Chemical Peel Skin Resurfacing
If you have sun damage, dark patches under the eyes, age spots or an array of other skin issues, we can treat these conditions with a chemical peel. Trichloracetic acid is used to remove the surface damaged layers of the skin which can rejuvenate it. Slight swelling may occur after the chemical peeling is performed, but this should dissipate within about a week.
