Face Procedures: Nose, Neck & Chin from UMD

Facial aesthetics are often one of the most important part of a person’s self image and self esteem. While we can’t change all of the features that we’re born with, we can reshape areas of our face to conform to the standards of what we see in the mirror. Sometimes we have birth defects or health problems causes by an abnormality in our face. If you’re unhappy with the state of your face, The University of Maryland’s Center for Cosmetic Surgery & Wellness understands and can help. We do multiple face and neck procedures including: Rhinoplasty (nose), Platysmaplasty (neck) and Genioplasty (chin).

Rhinoplasty is a procedure for the nose that is utilized to change its shape or improve its function. It is a common aesthetic procedure which often has a functional component. It can be done for a variety of reasons including correcting breathing problems that are a result of disfigurment from tramua or birth defects. The main goal of the procedure is to create a natural nose and restore balance to the face. It normally takes two to three weeks to be able to return to normal functions without anyone knowing you’ve had the procedure done.


Platysmaplasty is a cosmetic procedure to improve the appearance of the neck. The neck and jaw line are one of the first places people begin to see signs of aging. A neck lift can help in removing excess skin, removing or altering neck muscles, removing excess fat or using Botox injections to address the fullness of the neck. The procedure removes excess fat and skin and tightens the muscles to give a natural, smooth look. Patients that suffer with “double chins” or “turkey wattle neck” after losing a significant amount of weight can benefit from this procedure.


And finally, Genioplasty is a procedure that alters the shape, position and structure of your chin. It is often done together with a neck lift or liposuction of the neck but in congenital or posttraumatic cases may be done alone. Your chin is an important part of your face, shaping out of the bottom and giving your face a sense of completeness. Most of UMD’s Center for Cosmetic Surgery & Wellness’s face and neck procedures can be done in conjunction with one another. Consult your local UMD physician today to figure out which procedures may be right for you.
