Our eyes say so much about us. Upper eyelid aging often including (1) loose skin (2) volume loss (deep sunken eyes) and (3) asymmetry. This is an example of addressing all of those factors: ptosis repair, revolumization and upper blepharoplasty. I never get tired of seeing the transformation and the impact of more open, more vibrant-looking eyes.

Dr.Tan is a double board certified facial plastic surgeon who specializes in cosmetic treatment and surgery of face, neck and eyes.

Chin liposuction is an absolute game changer for our patients. These are our patient’s before and only one week after. The result will only continue to get better over time as swelling settles and the skin contracts more.

It is a one-time procedure that surgically removes the fat and sculpts the chin/neck area. Downtime for the procedure is about one week and that’s mainly for the wrap you would wear to contain swelling.

Dr. Tan offers surgical management not only for ‘double chin’ but also help improve jawline contour. We know there are so many options and information out there and that’s why we encourage you to give us a call so we can walk you through all of them.

There are cosmetic and medical reasons for finding out more about rhinoplasty. It can make a crooked nose appear straighter, reduce size or prominence, and remove bumps and humps. When expanded to functional rhinoplasty, a cosmetic procedure has health benefits, helping you breathe properly.

What Are the Benefits of Rhinoplasty?
- Reduce excessive length or size
- Improve the overall shape or nasal tip
- Smooth a dorsal hump to improve your profile
- Narrow large nostrils
- Correct a crooked or previously broken nose

Regardless of your goals or needs, Dr. Tan can help, and she has an excellent track record of success.

Goodbye double chin, hello snatched jawline.

Whether caused by hereditary factors, weight, or anatomy, concentrated fat under the chin can be a challenge to eliminate through exercise or dieting alone. Done under local anesthesia, liposuction can be a great way to permanently reduce stubborn double chin fat. In this patient, we also combined buccal fat removal for the ultimate facial and jawline contouring treatment. This is the immediate post surgery result. It will only get better over time.

11/16/2023

Have you been thinking about ways to remove unwanted fat, and achieving a more snatched jawline? A common question quested: kybella vs. chin liposuction? Read below to see why Dr. Tan feel liposuction is so much better.

What are my options?
(1) Chin Liposuction – Liposuction is a procedure performed by facial plastic surgeons. It is practically painless and involves numbing with local anesthetic.
(2) Kybella – Kybella is nonsurgical injection treatment. like liposuctions surgery, under local anesthesia, a medical called deoxycholic acid is injected to break down fat. The fat cells are not removed but simply destroyed.

Kybella vs. Chin Liposuction
TREATMENT PROCESS: With chin liposuction, the process is complete in one treatment session. Kybella usually requires at least 2-3 sessions to get what you are looking for.

RESULT: The end results of chin liposuction are much more controlled, dramatic, and can be noticed sooner. Dr. Tan can contour and strategically treat not only the double chin fat but under the jawline to give you a more defined and snatched jawline. With Kybella, the injection and areas treated are much more localized, and results can be more unpredictable and gradual.

RECOVERY: Your recovery from liposuction chin procedures will involve a compression neck wrap and a few days off before resuming normal activities. Recovery times for Kybella can also be much longer than with a chin lipo with persistent swelling.

At Hawaii Facial Plastic Surgery, Dr.Susan Tan is an expert facial plastic surgeon and can provide safe, natural-looking chin liposuction that permanently removes fat cells. With her advanced experience in facial surgery techniques, you can expect a gentle procedure and meticulous attention to detail. If you would like to know more about a chin liposuction procedure, reach out to schedule a consultation with our expert team who is happy to answer all of your questions.

Many people wonder what the incision looks like for an open rhinoplasty surgery. Dr. Tan prefers to use an inverted-V columellar incision design, whereas other surgeons may use a stairstep pattern.

The photo above shows the planned open rhinoplasty incision line marked on a patient right before starting surgery.

The main reason to create a more complicated incision is to camouflague the incision. An irregular incision line is much less conspicuous than a straight line. It's understandable that you may be concerned about having a scar placed on your nose. In actuality, when properly performed, open rhinoplasty incision heals exceptionally well and really becomes a nearly imperceptible. Swipe to see a healed rhinoplasty incision at 2 months.

Before & After: Asian Blepharoplasty

Each blepharoplasty procedure is unique to our patients. For this particular patient, she had prior Asian blepharoplasty procedure two years ago. Overtime, she has noticed increased hooding of the eyelid, with skin laxity and loss of the double eyelid crease. We did a revision blepharoplasty with recreation of the double eyelid crease, removal of upper eyelid skin and fat pad sculpting. The ‘After’ photos are taken at her one week postoperative visit. There is still some swelling and minor bruising, which can now be covered with makeup if desired. She has recovered well and is very pleased with the results.

This patient was an optimal candidate for an in-office procedure, under local anesthesia. We strive to ensure patients are comfortable and relaxed throughout their entire surgical process.

Surgical precision starts with skin marking.

Eyelid surgery is an art form that requires meticulous planning prior to the first cut. Marking of the eyelid skin for excision is arguably the most important step in cosmetic eyelid surgery and blepharoplasty, particularly since millimeters count in that area.

Prior to performing cosmetic upper eyelid blepharoplasty, I spend extra time designing the blepharoplasty incision lines and precisely marking the eyelid skin in preparation for surgical excision.

Ultimately, the design of the blepharoplasty incision and the amount of skin to be removed are customized based on patient’s distinct eyelid features and aesthetic desires.

Buccal fat removal is a popular procedure performed by Dr.Tan, often used as part of her treatment options to improve facial contour.

Buccal fat is fat between your cheekbones and jaw bones in your face. These fat pads help make up the shape of your face. Buccal fat removal is a surgery to remove the fat in this area of your face. This can highlight the bone structure in your face, especially your cheekbones. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia, and you can head home right after surgery. It is important to note that we all lose fat in our faces as we age and one may or may not need filler or fat placed at a later stage of life…Only small amount of fat in the right candidate can make a positive difference.

Dr. Tan is a double board certified facial plastic surgeon specializing in surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic treatments in the face and neck.

Rhinoplasty is one of the most commonly requested facial cosmetic surgeries. Why? Your nose is an extremely prominent facial feature. So much so that it is often the first thing people notice.

From an exterior perspective, rhinoplasty brings the nose into better harmony with other facial features. But the primary purpose of the nose—the function, if you will—is to help us breathe.

Because a nose’s form and function are both important, Dr. Tan is at the forefront of surgical advances that allow facial plastic surgeons to provide a better-looking nose and a better-functioning nose in a single surgery. There’s no standard approach to nose surgery. Every procedure requires customizing based on the patient’s unique physiology and desired outcomes.

It’s no wonder: a neck lift procedure is a popular surgery that can help take years off of a patient’s appearance. Neck lift patients often report seeing tighter and firmer-looking skin, along with a reduction in neck wrinkles and bands.

One of the most frequently asked questions during the consultation process includes:
“Where’s the incision for a neck lift?”

Neck lift incision placement varies from patient to patient; however, most candidates can expect their neck lift incisions to be placed behind the ears and (if needed) directly underneath the chin.

Candidates for a minimal incision neck lift procedure should moderate to severe signs of neck aging, which can include excess skin, noticeable jowls (or “turkey neck”), neck bands, deep wrinkles and lines, and more. All candidates should be healthy nonsmokers who have realistic expectations for the outcome of their neck lift procedure.

is a delicate operation, and its recovery can take considerable time. Did you know the average period for the nose to fully heal is one year following the procedure? However, you don't need to wait a year to be able to show off your new nose. As early as the first month, the refined results of the surgery will already be visible.

This client is now one year after her surgical rhinoplasty with improved nasal function and aesthetics. We see many clients with requests for non-surgical rhinoplasty, which can be a suitable alternative for those looking to make MINOR adjustment to the contours of the nose and smoothen small bumps and irregularities.

There are circumstances where it would not be possible to achieve a patient’s desired results with non-surgical Rhinoplasty. Some examples of when this might be the case include:

* Excessive rotation of the tip of the nose
A large hump or bump on the bridge of the nose
* Significant deviation of the nose
* Nasal reduction

In these cases, surgical intervention may be more appropriate. In any instance, the most suitable approach for your aesthetic goals should be discussed with board certified facial plastic surgeon like Dr. Susan Tan.

If you would like to explore either surgical or nonsurgical rhinoplasty, please contact us through link in bio.

Do you feel that you have an excessively full or “double chin,” despite being at a healthy weight? Liposuction of the neck can achieve a better defined, more graceful neckline.

Because liposuction removes excess fat, but cannot significantly improve sagging skin, the typical neck liposuction patient will be younger, his or her 20’s through early 50’s, as younger patients typically have good skin elasticity, which is necessary for the skin to contract smoothly and evenly after liposuction.

Considerations & goals with neck liposuction:

Improves the appearance of a “double chin” or fullness underneath the chin
Refines the jawline to enhance the chin or bring balance to facial features
Can be combined with chin augmentation or rhinoplasty to further enhance facial contours
Results are permanent so long as a patient maintains a stable weight

Can you tell how happy our patient is in his ‘after photo’?

As with any rhinoplasty surgery, male rhinoplasty involves individualized alterations to the size and shape of the nose, bridge width and height, to bring balance and harmony to the rest of the face. A key aspect in male rhinoplasty is to ensure the nose remains masculine in nature and avoid feminizing the patient’s nose which means that the dorsum is straight and well defined.

More frequently we see prominent dorsal humps that need to be reduced. In this patient, he had a poorly supported and crooked nose that required rebuilding the cartilage foundation to improve form and function. Rib cartilage was used in this case. He is incredibly happy with the outcome.

Dr. Tan is dedicated to providing natural aesthetic outcomes for all her patients. She is a double board certified facial plastic surgeon who specializes in facelift, blepharoplasty, rhinoplasty and non surgical full facial rejuvenation.

Mother’s Day is just a few days away!

One thing for sure is that mothers work harder than most anyone we know. We should definitely be showing love to our mothers year round, but especially on Mother’s Day.

One thing that mother’s deserve is some pampering. While getting botox injections as a gift isn’t the same kind of pampering as a day at the spa, many women prefer the enjoyment of waking up to a younger looking face. This is how we, at Hawaii Facial Plastic Surgery can help.

Here are some of the quick “in and out” treatments that we offer for those mothers who would like a youth enhancing boost to last for months.

(1) Botox is known as a wrinkle eraser because it inhibits the muscle action that causes the wrinkles. This is especially useful for allowing forehead furrows to relax and smoothing out crows feet or wrinkles between the eyebrows.

(2) Dermal Filler fills in creases and wrinkles with water attracting hyaluronic acid. It's perfect that those “parenthesis” around the mouth or nasolabial folds. It is also wonderful for plumping up lost volume to areas of the face, especially the lips.
(3) Gift of healthy skin - We offer advanced skin treatments including lasers, chemical peel, and RF microneedling to address pigmentation, acne, and skin laxity.

Each of these treatments successfully gives the appearance of turning back the clock to reveal more youthful facial features. Dr. Tan can help to custom tailor a combination treatment to address a variety of facial concerns.

You can give these as a gift certificate (20% off Gift Cards!!) to allow the mother in your life to choose what she’d like or designate the gift for a specific treatment that you know she’s mentioned that she wants.

Visit hawaiifacialplasticsurgery.com today or link in bio pamper the mother in your life this Mother’s Day.
