In New Hampshire, near Boston, Massachusetts – Providing Brow Lift, Otoplasty, and Neck Lift

At the International Center for Rhinoplasty, we specialize in nasal surgery procedures. However, we also perform plastic surgery for other areas of the face and body, such as facelift surgery, blepharoplasty, and breast augmentation. This page discusses some of the additional facial surgery procedures that are performed at our New Hampshire practice, north of Boston, Massachusetts. Brow lift, otoplasty, or neck lift surgery can provide significant aesthetic enhancement for many patients.

Brow Lift

The amount of hooding in the upper lid depends partially upon the position of the eyebrow. If you look in the mirror and push your eyebrow down, you will see that the upper lid looks looser; and if you raise it, loose skin in the upper lid often smoothes out, sometimes completely. The eyebrows should normally sit about ½” above the upper edge of the bone that forms the eye socket. If the brows have become droopy with time, the upper lid may appear hooded even if it is smooth; or the position of the eyebrow may make a puffy or wrinkly upper lid look worse than it really is. If the brows are very low, the excess skin over the upper lid is not really eyelid skin but eyebrow skin, and cannot be optimally improved by eyelid surgery alone. A brow lift done at the same time raises the brow, smoothes the upper lid, and makes the eye look larger. Brow lift also can reduce frown lines between the brows or smooth the transverse creases that cross the forehead. The procedure is performed through an incision in the hairline or in the scalp and can be done at the same time as eyelid surgery or facelift. Even if a brow lift is performed at the same time as another procedure, both procedures are still done as an outpatient.

Fees

The consultation fee for Brow Lift is $175. Dr. Constantian’s surgical fee for Brow Lift ranges from $3,500 to $4,500.

Otoplasty  (Ear Pinning)

Most ears that are “big” or “prominent” have two imperfections in varying degrees, each one a failure of the last stage of embryonic development in ear growth.  The first is a flattening or unfolding of the curvature in the upper part of the ear (the superior crus of the antihelix).

By curving the upper part of the ear back, that fold normally emerges.

Secondly, the inner cupped part of the ear (in which the ear canal is located), the concha, is not positioned close enough to the side of the head.  Occasionally the concha is also too deep and needs to be reduced.

At our New Hampshire center near Boston, Massachusetts, otoplasty is performed with the goal of improving both of those developmental flaws. Through an incision hidden in the crease behind the ear, permanent sutures pull the conchae back toward the tissue behind the ear; and other permanent sutures create the normal antihelical curl in the upper part of the ear.  These two maneuvers, combined with a small amount of skin excision, bring the ear back to a more normal position.

Fees

The consultation fee for Otoplasty (Ear Pinning) is $175. Dr. Constantian’s surgical fee for Bilateral Otoplasty ranges from $3,500 to $4,000.

Neck Lift

The intermediate procedure between the submental lipectomy and the full facelift is the “neck lift,” which adds the incisions in front of the ear and allows the surgeon to actually remove neck skin, thereby giving the neck a tighter, smoother result in some patients. The difference between the neck lift and the full facelift is that the cheek dissection is much more limited and therefore the recovery is somewhat (although not a great deal) quicker. Still, if the cheeks are “fine,” there is no reason to perform a full facelift and make things more complicated or expensive than they need to be.

Fees

The consultation fee for Necklift surgery is $175. Dr. Constantian’s surgical fee for Necklift surgery ranges from $4,800 to $7,800.

Because Dr. Constantian operates in a hospital setting, the hospital and anesthesia fees are not within his control and may change from time to time. If you would like more information regarding the hospital and anesthesia fees, please call our New Hampshire office.
