There may be various reasons for patients seeking facial aesthetic surgery. These include dissatisfaction with naturally given features, congenital problems, the wish to camouflage scars, or a desire to reverse the changes that have occurred due to ageing or life events.
Mr Manolis Heliotis provides the full range of facial rejuvenation procedures, including facelifts, neck lifts, fat transfer, eyelid surgery and chin, cheek, mandibular and other implants.
Approaching the face as a whole – underlying topography, soft tissues and skin – Manolis will often recommend that clinical and aesthetic excellence can be achieved with a lighter application of several complementary surgical treatments in combination, rather than a single ‘all-out’ procedure.
Furthermore, he performs facial surgeries that respect the balance of proportions and concentration of character within an individual’s face.
Manolis’s aim is to rejuvenate and refine, not to exaggerate.
Fundamentally, his skill lies in the provision of understated solutions that refresh, refine and restore.
The face can be the most problematic area for showcasing ageing. Like the hands and neck, it is most exposed to sunlight, which damages our skin making us look older. For this reason, facelift surgery is one of the most requested cosmetic surgery procedures.
If you are concerned by an ageing face, a face lift may be the right option for you.
Neck Lifts are used to address saggy and loose skin under the chin. As we age our skin and underlying muscle tone becomes less tight and can begin to feel thick and heavy around the neck.
Our patients can choose to have a neck lift alone or combine it with a facelift. Neck lift surgery usually takes place under general anaesthetic. During the procedure the surgeon will remove excess skin or fat from the patient’s chin to create a more defined look.
Blepharoplasty or an eyelid lift is a procedure to remove the skin and to add or remove fat from the eyelids. The eyelid itself is not actually moved during the procedure.
Blepharoplasty surgery can help with the following:
Ageing can cause the brows to droop leaving some people with a face which looks older and more tired than it should. A brow lift can help reverse the signs of ageing by living the brow to create a tighter look with reduced fatty tissue above the eye.
Alters the profile of the chin through augmentation or reduction Camouflage of a deficient mandible.
The surgeon can access the chin through the mouth with a genioplasty or use a chin implant with face and neck lifts.
A genioplasty is a surgical procedure where a cut is made into the chin bone. The chin is then moved forward or backward (sliding genioplasty). Genioplasty is commonly known as Chin Surgery and helps to correct the profile of the chin. It is used to address:
What does the operation involve?
The treatment leaves no skin scars
Can be done with facial implants, fillers or fat as an independent procedure or as part of a face lift.
Takes 1.5-2 hours.
Surgeon will access the area through the mouth or eyelid if placing implants.
If using fillers this can be done in outpatients.
For example, Asian women perceive beauty as having a delicate and feminine facial shape, which is oval rather than square. This however does not work well with Asian genetics which dictate more often a square jawline and slight protruding cheeks and mouth. Some women also wish to have softer or more feminine features overall. We see gender reassignment patients who wish to feminise their facial features. Or men that want stronger more masculine features.
With Facial Re-contouring, we can help address the above needs and achieve a look which is more in line with aesthetic aspirations.
Facial Re-contouring can help with the following:
Mr Manolis Heliotis offers clients facial bone contouring and facial implants. Facial re-contouring allows us to offer patients the opportunity to achieve a more proportionate face and jawline. Many clients complain that their face is not symmetrical and that they would like to realign their jaw to reach the symmetrical look they are after. Symmetric faces have for a long time been considered an innate sign of beauty and we can now offer it to our patients.
There are several permanent surgical procedures used to reach the finished look and it can be a little confusing for patients. Fundamentally, Facial Re-contouring Surgery is managed by orthognathic Surgery, bony facial contouring surgery, rhinoplasty, genioplasties and facial implants, injectables, soft tissue surgery such as neck and face lifts or a combination of all the above to give people’s faces a more symmetrical appearance.
Although ideas about beauty have changed dramatically throughout time, the constant of symmetry has always been associated with beauty.
Facial re-contouring can help achieve improved symmetry, but it can also go further.
There are many benefits of Facial Re-contouring for both men and women:
Using a combination of surgical and complementary non-surgical options, we can rejuvenate, refresh and redefine your appearance. From face lifts to neck lifts, Botox to fillers, facial recontouring and orthognathic surgery, a newer, firmer, invigorated look can be achieved.
