Good Health Arabia Magazine Interview, August 2017

Meet our Experts section: Interview with Dr Georges Ziade about facial plastic surgery, cosmetics and Otolaryngology.

Most commonly asked questions about facial plastic surgery and cosmetic medicine in Lebanon, and Middle East Countries were answered in this article. The best techniques for face and neck lift were explained as well as thread lifting techniques. Surgical face and neck lifting is efficient only when a layer named SMAS (Superficial Musculoaponeurotic System) or what is commonly know as “facial muscle” is surgically lifted and repositioned.

The best way to do a neck liposuction was also explained and this consists on a small hidden incision through which the excess of fat is aspirated, which gives the neck a much younger aspect. Lip Lift surgery is also an important topic when performed using the best plastic surgery techniques; it is indicated when the distance between the nose and upper lip is long and is performed through a hidden incision.

Finally, the best rhinoplasty techniques were also listed, which differ in each case to provide a nice and suitable nasal shape for every patient.
