Blepharoplasty (Surgery of the Eyelids)
Droopy eyelids can make you look older, as well as impair your vision. Blepharoplasty is a treatment for droopy eyelids which can help rejuvenate your appearance.
To determine whether blepharoplasty is right for you, you’ll want to understand what it can and cannot achieve. This treatment removes excess fat, muscle, and skin from both your upper and lower eyelids.
Cosmetic eyelid surgery makes it possible to correct certain flaws and signs of premature aging, which can undermine your self-confidence. By changing how you look, blepharoplasty can help improve how you feel about yourself.
The treatment can refresh your appearance and give you a younger, firmer eye area. It can also remove puffiness and bags from under your eyes that make you look worn and tired. However, blepharoplasty cannot alter dark circles, fine lines, and wrinkles around your eyes, or change sagging eyebrows.
Blepharoplasty is a single procedure. However, it is possible that after talking with our surgeon, you may decide that you would like a brow lift, facelift, or skin resurfacing to achieve an even better result overall.
Brow and Forehead Lifts
Your eyebrow and forehead areas are often the first to show the signs of aging. Skin begins to lose its elasticity as the effects of sun, wind, and gravity take their toll. Even people in their thirties can have faces that look older than they are.
Because of this, many people like to have a brow or forehead lift done to address these effects of aging. The procedure used to achieve this effect will vary depending on your age and the latest in medical technology. The main difference in the different types of brow and forehead surgery is the placement of the incision. Often, people choose to combine a brow or forehead lift with an eyelid tuck or other procedures to create a harmonious rejuvenation effect.
We provide brow and forehead lift options to help reverse the effects of facial aging. If you have any questions about brow or forehead lift treatment options, contact us for more information.
Mentoplasty (Surgery of the Chin)
A well-defined chin can help lend balance to your face and create a major part of your profile. When you look in the mirror, you may primarily focus on the shape of your nose, ears, jowl, or wrinkles.
Cosmetic chin surgery (mentoplasty) can sometimes make as much of a difference as cosmetic nose surgery (rhinoplasty). Therefore, we may often recommend chin surgery in addition to nose surgery when necessary, to achieve your ideal facial balance and harmony.
We would be happy to answer any questions you may have about facial cosmetic chin surgery. Contact us today to schedule a consultation!
Is Chin Surgery for Me?
As with any optional surgery, it is important that you have good health and set realistic expectations. Chin surgery can help address a receding chin by inserting an implant or moving the bone forward. It can likewise help a protruding or jutting chin by bringing it in. These procedures can create a balanced profile and improve your self-confidence.
Otoplasty (Surgery of the Ears)
Of all the opportunities for facial cosmetic improvement, perhaps no other feature cries out more for attention than protruding ears. This tends to be even more of a factor with children, as their peers tend to make fun of them for protruding ears by calling them names. Even in mild cases, children can experience decreases in self-confidence and social acceptance due to cosmetic issues with their ears.
The most important consideration with cosmetic ear surgery is that the ears are in correct size and shape proportion relative to the head.
The risks of otoplasty are minimal, and the benefits are numerous. The surgery leaves only a small white scar in the natural crease area behind the ear, so visibility is not a significant concern.
Otoplasty makes it possible to improve self-confidence and social acceptance by addressing cosmetic issues with the ears by giving them a more appealing look.
Rhinoplasty (Surgery of the Nose)
Cosmetic nose surgery is one of the most popular procedures we perform. Some people are unhappy with the nose they were born with, while others may not like the way their nose has changed with time or injury. Whatever your reason for considering rhinoplasty, this much is clear: no other factor impacts your appearance more than the shape of your nose.
You should consider many factors when deciding whether to get cosmetic nose surgery done, including skin type and color, ethnic background, and age. Your nose will need to be fully developed, so you must be 15 years of age or older.
We will help you with this decision during a consultation. During this consultation, we will also go over whether you might need other types of facial cosmetic surgery, such as chin augmentation, to achieve a set of well-balanced facial features.
Rhytidectomy (Face and Neck Lift)
As time passes, the inexorable march of aging continues, taking its toll on your face and neck. Examples of aging features include: the jaw line softens into jowls, folds or a “double chin” appear at the front of the neck, and forehead creases and crow’s feet appear.
As the aging population grows, so does the popularity of facelift procedures. Rhytidectomy is the third most requested facial cosmetic surgical procedure, and if you would like to look younger as you age, it could be for you.
While a facelift cannot turn back the clock or stop aging, it can help reduce the effects while improving your appearance to help boost your self-confidence.
You may also want to consider other forms of facial cosmetic treatment to address all your cosmetic concerns at once. For example, some patients opt to have facial liposuction performed as well, to eliminate excess fat deposits from the chin and face areas and create a better overall result.
What is Scar Revision Surgery?
Sometimes scars form during the healing process after surgery, a burn, accident, or case of acne. Scar tissue forms whenever multiple layers of skin suffer some form of damage. Scars are permanent, but we can help reduce their visibility or even relocate them using cosmetic scar revision surgery.
How Long Does Scar Revision Take to Heal?
The initial healing phase of surgical scar revision may involve local swelling, discoloration, or discomfort in the immediate area of the surgery. These should usually subside within 1-2 weeks after the surgery. The healing process will continue over the next several weeks. As the new scar heals, it will gradually refine and fade.
The results of your cosmetic surgery will be long-lasting. Keep in mind it may take several months of healing for the new scar to fade and your final results to emerge.
Should I Get Scar Revision Surgery?
As you consider scar revision surgery, it is important to set realistic expectations and understand that there is no way to remove scars completely. The goal of this cosmetic procedure is to improve the appearance of scars by disguising or relocating them or minimizing their appearance.
It is important to know that different types of scars respond in different ways to cosmetic surgery techniques. You should also know that if you have an injury in the area where you are considering surgery, you will want to let the area heal fully before getting any scar revision work done.
Depending on your reason for surgery, more than one procedure or technique may be employed.
Scar revision surgery makes it possible to address scars which affect your self-confidence or affect your life in adverse ways.
Skin Resurfacing for Radiant Skin
If your skin is showing signs of sun damage like premature wrinkles, skin resurfacing could be the answer you’ve been looking for. Both men and women have found that skin resurfacing can help them turn back the clock on some of that damage to bring back a more youthful version of themselves.
As with any cosmetic surgical procedure, it is important to set realistic expectations and know the limitations involved. While skin resurfacing cannot create perfect skin, it can certainly improve the appearance of your skin dramatically.
If you have dark skin or problems with allergies, previous burns, radiation exposure, or a history of poor scarring, we may need to evaluate whether you are a viable candidate for a skin resurfacing procedure. Skin resurfacing also cannot reverse aging or correct sagging skin.
When making a treatment recommendation, we may advise you to follow a skin care regimen before any procedure.
Botox Injections for Wrinkle Treatment
To treat your wrinkles, we have solutions for everyone, including Botox, laser and light treatments, and medical spa services. Reducing the signs of aging has never been easier, and our diverse array of options can address a wide variety of needs.
Botox is well known for its wrinkle-reducing capabilities. Botulism bacteria create this substance, and it has several medical purposes, including reducing wrinkles.
The treatment involves injecting a highly diluted and purified form of the toxin into your facial muscles. This can help reduce certain kinds of wrinkles, such as crow’s feet at the corners of your eyes, and lines between your eyebrows. We usually treat the lines around your mouth in other ways. If you would like to know if Botox could treat your wrinkles effectively, we would be happy to help answer any questions you may have.
Why Choose Laser/Light Therapy for Wrinkles?
Another option for treating your wrinkles is laser and light treatment.
Some of the benefits of laser and light therapy include:
Elevated immune response
Promotion of collagen for new skin production
Better blood circulation in the treated area
Increased energy for cells in the treated area
Better lymphatic drainage, which reduces swelling
During laser and light therapy, we direct a low-intensity laser (typically red) to a section of your wrinkled skin. The laser penetrates the surface of your skin and stimulates the production of adenosine triphosphate, which leads to increased healthy skin cell production.
This therapy promotes healing as well because it increases collagen, enzymes, and cellular growth. It can also help prevent scar tissue from forming.
If you have any questions about laser or light therapy, our team will be happy to answer them for you, to help you decide if one of these treatments could effectively treat your wrinkles.
