EYELID SURGERY

Eyelid surgery (known as blepharoplasty), removes loose, sagging skin or fat deposits in the upper or lower eyelids. The result is a rejuvenation of the eyes, which appear to open wider, and look more rested and youthful.

Would I benefit from eyelid surgery?

You want to restore your youthful appearance. If you have sagging or puffy eyelids, they can age your appearance. Expertly crafted eyelid surgery can restore the youthful glow to your face and boost your confidence.

What is Post-operative care like for Eyelid Surgery?

Post surgery, you will keep your head elevated as much as possible for the first few days to decrease swelling. Lubricating eye drops are also used. Some swelling and bruising may occur and will improve in two to three weeks. You should be able to return to work in one to two weeks and should avoid heavy physical exertion for six weeks.

Face & Neck Lift

A facelift, otherwise known as rhytidectomy, is a procedure that creates a more youthful facial appearance by smoothing and firming the skin. A facelift tightens the areas of the face and neck that are especially prone to the aging process.This is done by moving the facial tissues to a more favorable location and typically involves the excision of some excess facial skin.

Would I benefit from a face and neck lift?

You want to restore your youthful appearance. Aging affects everyone, but it doesn’t affect us all at the same rate. If you feel, looking in the mirror, that sagging facial skin, jowls and wrinkles are making you look older than you are, a facelift could change that. An expertly performed facelift will help you look your best and reverse many of the effects of gravity & aging by this rejuvenating procedure. You’ll see immediate improvement in your chin, jawline, and cheeks.

What is the healing process of a facelift?

Swelling and bruising is normal and will improve in two to three weeks. Sutures are usually removed by post-operative day seven to ten. Clients should be able to return to work in one week and should avoid heavy physical exertion for six weeks. A thorough explanation will be given in the consultation to ensure all your questions are answered and you feel confident and excited about your restorative operation.

Rhinoplasty

One of the most popular procedures in the United States, a rhinoplasty is also known as a “nose job”. This can be a strictly cosmetic procedure, a medically indicated procedure, or a combination of both. A septoplasty is a surgery done to the septum separating the left and right side of the nose to benefit airflow.

How do I know if Rhinoplasty is right for me?

There are countless reasons you might want to change the appearance of your nose. A few of the most common are:

  • A nose that’s too large or small for your face
  • A nasal bridge with a hump or bump
  • An abnormally wide nose
  • A protruding, overly large, bulbous or drooping nasal tip
  • Flared or pinched nostrils
  • A crooked or asymmetrical nasal structure

How do I prepare for my rhinoplasty?

Your satisfaction with your rhinoplasty relies heavily on communication between you and your doctor. Your initial consultation will be a deep dive into discussing the desired results you’d like, and what is best for your unique facial structure. Getting crystal clear by going over every step of the procedure will ensure you achieve the look you want.

Images of various noses may be used to help you understand ideal shape, size and profile you should consider.

What does the healing consist of for rhinoplasty?

The first week of healing is key during your recovery period after your rhinoplasty. You will need to be very gentle around the face area to avoid harming your new nasal structure and interrupting the healing process. You’ll want to wear buttoned shirts, sleep with your head elevated, eat soft foods, take baths rather than showers, and avoid blowing your nose. You’ll also need to carefully change the gauze outside your nose.

Throughout this initial period, it’s normal to experience swelling, bruising and stuffiness. Though not the most comfortable (comparable to what it feels like when you have a cold), these effects are temporary and you will see them subside as you heal. Rhinoplasty is generally not painful, but instead could be considered uncomfortable.

The day after your surgery, you’ll return to the office for your first post-operative appointment. A week after surgery, any internal and external dressings will be removed to evaluate your nose, assess your progress and ensure that you’re healing properly. Any questions you may have will be answered also to ensure a safe and smooth recovery process.

Facial Liposuction

Facial liposuction is one of the most successful ways to remove fat from the face and jawline. Other commonly treated areas include the cheeks, chin, and neckline. This procedure can even produce a more natural result than a facelift. Facial liposuction can rejuvenate the face from the effects of the aging process, and restore a healthy, well rested and youthful glow.

Is Facial Liposuction right for me?

If you have noticed the skin under your jaw begin to sag and lose elasticity, or have always held extra fat in the facial area, you may consider facial liposuction. The doctor will ensure that your procedure results in a proportional, youthful and well contoured look.

OTOPLASTY

Having ears that stick out is a very common insecurity in both women and men. Surgery of the ear, also known as otoplasty, is a procedure that helps reduce protrusion of the ear away from the head. This is often referred to as ear pinning and can be performed as young as the age of four. Ears that “stick out” are often the source of teasing and ridicule in young children. This teasing can have a devastating effect on the child’s psyche.

Am I a candidate for ear pinning?

Ear pinning surgery is used to correct a defect in the ear structure that is present at birth, becomes apparent as a child develops, or is caused by injury or earlier surgery. Otoplasty is used to correct overly large or protruding ears, and is not associated with hearing loss. This surgery is appropriate for adults, teens and children (no younger than 4).

CHIN IMPANTS

Facial implants are used to enhance the facial structure and rejuvenate the facial contours. Common reasons for facial implants include:

  • If you have a weak, receding chin and wish to make it more projecting and improve your jawline
  • if you want to lessen the appearance of a double chin
  • If you wish to restore contour and proportion to your facial structures made deficient by aging
  • If you wish to correct facial asymmetry or deformities resulting from injury or congenital conditions

Is a chin implant right for me?

The chin is one of the prominent focal points of your face. The alignment of the jaw and chin structure forms the foundation for your face and neck. This seemingly subtle area of the face has a big impact on overall acethetics.

When the chin is shaped and positioned properly, it can create a harmonious and overall attractive look, with a defined jawline and balanced profile. In performing chin augmentation procedures, the doctors will artistically sculpt the chin and jaw area that is ideally defined and positioned to best fit your facial proportions.

What should I expect from my consultation?

If you are considering this procedure, please come in for a consultation. You can expect your initial exam and consultation to be thorough as to answer all questions and make sure you feel fully confident regarding the next steps. In the consultation, the doctors will:

  • Listen to what you’d like to achieve with your surgery
  • Perform a thorough examination
  • Tell you exactly what he recommends and why

It is important that you and your doctor agree on the aesthetics and mechanics of your surgery in order to obtain the results that you want.

FACIAL REJUVENATION

The effects of aging on the face caused by heredity, lifestyle, and environmental factors no longer have to be accepted as permanent, thanks to modern skin care technology. Today there are multiple rejuvenation options if you who would like to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines, treat skin problems like acne and rosacea, or enhance the glow of your facial skin to achieve a look that’s healthy and natural.

Botox

Botox was developed to treat the signs of aging by smoothing wrinkles. The procedure is simple and can be done in just a few minutes.. It is considered a safe, convenient and effective way of treating aging skin. Common areas include: horizontal forehead lines, vertical lines between the eyebrows and what is commonly referred to as “crow’s feet” around the eyes. Botox is considered the best non-surgical form of facial rejuvenation and has been known to produce phenomenal improvements in your appearance. Botox produces results that last from 4-6 months.

FACIAL FILLERS

Dermal fillers may be a great choice if you want to rejuvenate your skin without undergoing extensive surgical procedures. Fillers are increasing their popularity even more because they are safer, have less recovery time and are not as expensive as surgery. You can regain the youthful glow of your skin after just one treatment, and the effects can last for months.

LASER RESURFACING

Laser skin resurfacing is a popular procedure that rejuvenates the skin and reduces effects of the sun, aging, and even certain facial skin disorders. Treatments are less intensive than surgery, effective, and convenient. Also known as a laser peel, this procedure removes damaged outer layers of skin and promotes production of collagen producing younger, healthier-looking skin. Laser skin resurfacing diminishes the appearance of flaws on the skin’s surface. The procedure may also be referred to as laser skin rejuvenation because of its anti aging benefits.
