This is a procedure that can help to take away the signs of aging including wrinkles, jowls and skin laxity. These benefits are achieved using surgical techniques that lift and tighten the skin, remove excess fat, and contour the muscles of the neck and face.
Over time, it is common to notice the eyebrows descend on the forehead and frown lines to develop. A browlift can elevate the eyebrow to a more youthful position and recreate the arch of the brow that is lost in aging. During the procedure, the muscles that cause frown lines are removed and a smoother forehead is achieved.
Eyelid surgery (Blepharoplasty)
A common complaint as we age is to develop excess skin in the upper eyelids. This hooding can make us look tired and can actually impair vision. In the lower eyelid, dark circles and depressions can develop as well as fat bulges that lead to an undesirable fullness. This procedure can remove the excess skin and muscle, remove or reposition fat and results in a more youthful and natural appearance of the eyes. This procedure is commonly performed in conjunction with a brow lift for upper face rejuvenation.
Many people are unhappy with the appearance of their nose and also have difficulty breathing. This procedure can correct imperfections such as removing the hump on the nose, refining the tip as well as improving airway obstruction.
As we age, it is common to develop deep wrinkles around our lips. This procedure removes the superficial layers of wrinkled skin. As this skin heals, new cells develop and decrease the wrinkles seen in this area.
The chin can be a focal point of the face. Many individuals may be unhappy with the projection or profile of the chin. This procedure can alter both the projection and width of the chin, by using an implant.
Ear surgery (Otoplasty)
A common problem seen is prominent ears. This procedure using techniques of scoring and suturing will reduce the projection of prominent ears for a more natural appearance.
Small depressions or grooves can be quite troublesome. Collagen injections can be used as a filler of these facial depressions, though it is not permanent.
Frown lines, crow’s feet and many facial wrinkles are a result of underlying muscle hyperactivity. Botox injections can paralyze the muscle and improve the overlying skin wrinkle. As with Collagen, the results of Botox are not permanent and will require repeat treatment.
Additional fillers are available and constantly being added on the market, such as Restyline, Radianace and others. We can discuss your needs and determine which filler may best suit your needs.
