Nose Reshaping (Rhinoplasty)
Surgery to reshape the nose is among the most common plastic surgery procedures. This procedure can reduce or increase the size of the nose, remove an unwanted hump, change the shape of the tip or the bridge, and/or narrow the width of the nostrils.
Chin augmentation can change the shape of the chin to extend the chin from the face. The contour of the chin can be reshaped to be smoother or more angular in appearance. Dr. Youn performs this procedure using either the patient’s own fat or a small implant placed through the mouth with no external scars. Chin augmentation can be tailored to create a more balanced yet feminine look in females, and a stronger, more masculine appearance in males. Swelling is usually minimal, and most patients can return to work within a few days.
Full and vivacious lips have always been recognized as aesthetically important features which signify youth and beauty. Some of us however, are born with thin, ill-defined lips, or lose the fullness in their lips as they grow older. Dr. Youn performs lip enhancement in a variety of ways, including using fat grafting or injectables like Juvederm, Restylane, and Prevelle to increase the fullness and enhance the shape of lips.
Corner Mouthlift (A.K.A The Grin Lift)
The corners of the mouth tend to droop as people age. Dr. Youn corrects this in two different ways. For minor drooping, injections of Restylane, Juvederm, or fat can provide a lift for the corners of the mouth. For patients with more severe drooping, a surgical corner mouthlift (a.k.a. the grinlift) can be performed. It is a procedure which can be performed in the office under local anesthetic, and can result in a significant lift with a small scar.
