Find out how plastic surgery could help boost your look and your self-esteem.Plastic Surgery


Sometimes the aging process isn’t kind to everyone. You can blame lifestyle, certain habits and even genetics on this. While some may be able to get the results they want through non-invasive cosmetic procedures, sometimes wrinkles, folds and other issues are more severe and many require surgery. Our Holmdel, NJ, plastic surgeon Dr. Manoj Thakker is here to talk about some of the most common kinds of facial plastic surgery procedures and how they could benefit you.


This is one of the most common procedures that people think about when they hear cosmetic surgery. Along with being a well-known treatment, it’s also still a pretty popular way to improve the appearance of older, sagging skin that has lost its elasticity. If you have moderate-to-severe folds, sagging or wrinkles, or if you want to alter and enhance the contours of your face, then you may just want to consider getting a facelift for more dramatic and long-term results.

Brow lift

Just as cheeks can start to hollow out and the skin along the chin line can sag, the brow line may also start to droop. When this happens, it can make you appear angry, sad or tired. If you find that people often comment that you look upset or tired, this could be due to sagging eyebrows. In some severe cases, the sagging may be so bad that it can obstruct your vision. When this happens, the best way to fix this issue and instantly refresh your appearance is through a simple brow lift.

Ear Contouring

Did you know that ears continue to grow even once the rest of your has stopped growing? This can lead to rather large, disproportionate ears or ears that stick out. If you wish your ears weren’t so prominent a simple reshaping or pinning procedure can be done to reshape the ears and make them blend in with the rest of your appearance.


Better referred to as a “nose job”, whether you just hate that your nose is crooked or hooked, or whether you are dealing with breathing problems due to the shape of your nose, there are many reasons why someone may choose to get rhinoplasty. During this procedure, our Holmdel NJ, cosmetic surgeon will make small incisions, remove some cartilage and reshape and reposition the nose (if necessary) to improve breathing and instantly alter the shape of your nose so that it is proportionate to the rest of your facial features.

Plastic surgery could be the solution for you if you're looking to improve the appearance of your body or face. There are over 14 million cosmetic plastic surgery procedures performed each year according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Despite popular belief and the procedure name, plastic surgery doesn't involve adding any plastic to the body—it's just a term referencing the fact that your doctor will help “mold” your body or face into a new form. Learn more about the types of procedures available and who is a good candidate for plastic (cosmetic) surgery.
