2 Cosmetic Procedures You Might Not Know About

2 Cosmetic Procedures You Might Not Know AboutNever heard of Blepharoplasty or Rhinoplasty? Do not worry, you are not alone. Here is an explanation of the two procedures, which are actually very common andsomething thousands of people choose to have done each year to improve their appearance.

What is a rhinoplasty?
You might have never heard of the medical term “rhinoplasty”, but you have definitely heard of this procedure’s common name – a nose job. Some people get a rhinoplasty purely for cosmetic reasons, while others choose the procedure for health reasons like restricted airways and deformity of the nose.

Depending on the patient’s rhinoplasty needs and goals, Dr. Azizzadeh can restructure the soft tissue, cartilage, and in some cases, the actual bone to reshape the nose.

What is a blepharoplasty?
A blepharoplasty is a modification to the eyelid, and can be done to either the upper eyelid, lower eyelid, or both.  Upper blepharoplasty is great for people who have a prominent upper eyelid that tends to hang over the eye. This is a common effect of aging because the skin is less elastic. Lower blepharoplasty, on the other hand, will help get rid of the puffy appearance from under your eyes.
