BALANCE & HARMONY
There is nothing inherently wrong with the aesthetics of any facial feature, it is the meaning we attach to things that makes them so. A big nose can be character defining…. droopy eyelids, a crinkly neckline, a jowly jawline, sagging skin and loss of tone are all amongst the physical changes that accompany ageing.
Ageing is a privilege and health is the priority.
Beginning the conversation about potentially undergoing a facial plastic surgery procedure depends on you being healthy in the first place. It is not for the insecure. A sense of mental clarity is required to properly assess how to best address making any physical changes that you may desire.
Facial plastic surgery, performed well, celebrates the individual and their defining characteristics. It isn’t about making you look fake, obviously adjusted or “cookie-cut”.
Ultimately, it’s about helping achieve a greater level of self-acceptance and appearance confidence.
As a Head and Neck Specialist Surgeon, balance and harmony are guiding principles I work with and strive for daily. Making even small, subtle changes can make a big difference to the overall aesthetic.
For example, refining the tip of a person’s nose (when they have presented with the issue of feeling self-conscious about its shape or size) can result in other facial features such as eyes or lips becoming more noticeable, where before the nose drew the attention and dominated the face.
When a person’s eyelids and eyebrows droop or sag it can make them look and feel tired and in severe cases impacts vision. A blepharoplasty or eyebrow lift may correct these complaints, creating a refreshed look that draws attention to the colour and shape of the eyes, rather than the loose skin on top.
A facelift and neck-lift can also be about restoring the patient’s own youthful balance.
With any facial plastic surgery procedure, your unique features are measured and assessed with a sense of proportion to the whole.
Once you have explained your concerns and what you wish to have addressed, we use a combination of photographs, computer imaging technology and examination in front of the mirror, to help communicate the changes we are working to achieve.
We explain what happens in a procedure and the recovery process and answer your questions. Information is empowerment, essential to making an informed decision.

Several months post-op. Note the natural, elegant youthful jawline and neck contour. There is no pulled look or redundant neck tissue. Those in the know understand that Deep Plane Face and Neck Lifts take the tension off the skin so there is no “pulled” look. Deep Plane Face and Neck Lifts look natural because the patient’s own ligaments are re-tensioned and repositioned. Deep Plane is ideal for younger and older patients.
Two weeks post rhinoplasty procedure – using Preservation and Structural techniques. He had broken his nose several years ago and had persisting nasal deformity and obstruction. His nose looks completely natural and manly. The nose is straight and the tip is nicely defined and supported. The excessive nostril view is corrected. There is no bruising and only minor swelling. The tip and bridge will continue to refine over the next few months.
Two and a half years post op. This shows the longevity of the techniques used. Nose looks completely natural and elegant and breathing is excellent. Note the treatment of the bump, refinement of tip and correction of excessive nostril view.
Outcomes experienced by one person do not necessarily reflect what another person may experience. Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks which you should discuss in detail with your surgeon.
