Facelift & Neck Lift

A facelift and neck lift can help address common signs of aging in the lower and mid-face, as well as the neck. By tightening the skin and underlying facial muscles, Dr. Amaka can help patients address a number of common age-related aesthetic concerns with fresh, natural-looking results. A facelift and neck lift can improve the appearance of wrinkles, lines, folds, creases, sagging fat, skin laxity, and jowling, restoring a more youthful aesthetic.

Rhinoplasty is designed to address functional and/or aesthetic concerns relating to the nose. The nose is often considered a central part of facial identity due to its prominent placement, so by adjusting its size, shape, and projection, facial balance and harmony can be improved. Common cosmetic concerns include an asymmetrical or crooked nose, a wide nose, a bulbous nasal tip, and a hump and/or bump on the nasal bridge. Breathing problems resulting from a deviated septum or other structural concerns can also be addressed.

Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery—medically referred to as blepharoplasty—can help address common signs of aging around the eyes. Upper eyelid surgery can lift and tighten the skin of the upper eyelids to create a more alert and youthful appearance. It can also potentially improve one’s field of vision in cases where excess eyelid skin is drooping down over the eyes. Lower blepharoplasty is designed to address under-eye bags, puffiness, and discoloration. Depending on the needs of the patient, upper and lower eyelid surgery can be performed as individual procedures or in combination to produce comprehensive rejuvenation. This can be combined with fat grafting for contour depending on individual needs.

Lip Lift

A surgical lip lift helps make the lips appear fuller. This is accomplished by removing a small section of skin beneath the nose, which pulls the upper lift upwards and reveals more of the pigmented inner lip. This can create a more youthful and voluminous lip appearance while also enhancing overall facial harmony. 

Facial Fat Grafting

Facial fat grafting—also called fat transfer—is an innovative procedure that can add desirable volume to different regions of the face with long-lasting results. The fat is derived from the patient’s own body using liposuction. The harvested fat is then purified and injected into targeted areas such as the cheeks, lips, temples, jawline, chin, and/or under the eyes. Facial fat can either be performed on its own or combined with other procedures to add youthful fullness and definition to the face, such as a facelift.

Otoplasty & Ear Surgery

Otoplasty is designed to correct the shape, size, and projection of the ears in order to bring them into better proportion with the face. Dr. Amaka performs ear surgery for both juvenile patients and adult patients, and she can tailor the specifics of the procedure to the unique needs of each individual. 

Chin Augmentation

The chin plays an important role in defining the proportions of the face. Chin augmentation can help contour and restructure the chin to create appealing facial balance. Dr. Amaka carefully analyzes the structure of each patient’s face in relation to their aesthetic goals before recommending the optimal treatment modality. A custom chin implant can help extend and reshape the chin, while dermal filler injections can provide more conservative improvements to the contours of the chin and jaw. 

“I am so very pleased with my results. From the start the whole experience she was very professional. Dr. Amaka is very knowledgeable, answering any questions I had with no hesitation. She has excellent bedside manner and frequently followed up with me post-surgery (prior to my office visit). I would and have recommended Dr. Amaka to anyone desiring a confidence boost and a toned body. She is the best!!!!”
