facial surgery

Through a range of facial aesthetic procedures, Mr. Townley aims to help restore youth and confidence, with a natural and long-lasting look.

Blepharoplasty (Upper and /or Lower Eyelids) – for eyelid bags
The eyelids are a key area that can betray someone’s age or just give a very ‘tired appearance’. Blepharoplasty can reduce puffiness, remove excess skin and provide a natural, youthful appearance with minimal scarring.
+ Local anaesthetic or general anaesthetic 1-2 hours. Daycase.

Face-lift
The aim of a face-lift is to restore the natural shape and balance of a youthful face. It is not about simply removing skin, which can lead to a very unnatural ‘wind-swept’ surgical appearance. It is important to rejuvenate the face by redistributing volume and lifting the drooping areas (jowels, marionette lines, cheek folds).
+ General anaesthetic 4 hours. Overnight stay.

Rhinoplasty – nose reshaping
The nose is the centre piece of the face and therefore a very important and distinctive feature. The desired appearance of the nose is indiviudal and culture-specific. Rhinoplasty can straighten crooked noses, remove bumps, adjust length and deliver a more refined tip.
+ General anaesthetic 2-3 hours. Overnight stay.

Genioplasty – chin reshaping
The relative prominence or size of the chin is very important as it can exaggerate or mask other facial features. For example, it may be possible to turn an apparently long nose into a nose that looks in proportion to the rest of the face by adjusting the chin alone.
+ General anaesthetic 1-2 hours. Overnight stay.

Prominent Ear Correction (pinnaplasty)
A simple procedure than can refine the shape and reduce projection of ears that stick out.
+ General anaesthetic or local anaesthetic. 1-2 hours. Daycase.

Fat Transfer
Loss of volume with age can lead to a very sunken or tired appearance, especially in the cheeks. Fat transfer is a technique that transfers fat from one area to another – thereby using your own tissue to fill age-related wrinkles and lines or hollows in the face. Commonly, fat is harvested from areas such as the thigh or buttock, purified and injected into areas requiring treatment.
+ General anaesthetic 1 hour. Daycase.
