In this procedure the muscles and ligaments of the face are repaired beneath the skin and the excess skin is then pulled back and removed. There is typically a scar left behind the ears. Many times an endoscopic brow lift and blepharoplasty are also completed during this procedure.
Nasal Reconstruction (Rhinoplasty)
This surgery can be for medical reasons, such as fixing a broken or previously broken nose or correcting a deviated septum. A rhinoplasty is also a very popular cosmetic surgery used to make the nose less wide, bulbous, remove bumps from the bridge or make the tip of the nose finer.
Cosmetic Surgery of the Eyes (Blepharoplasty, Forehead/Brow Lift)
A blepharoplasty removes either the loose skin on the upper eyelids, the bags and fat under the lower eyelids or all at the same time. A forehead or brow lift can be done by making a large incision, or more commonly, endoscopically. With the endoscopic brow lift, there are no visible scars.
Chin Surgery (Mentoplasty)
During a mentoplasty, a silicon implant is placed and secured to the jaw. Most of the time this can be done under local anesthesia but some patients may require heavier sedation.
Cheek Implant (Malar Augmentation)
Cheek implants are normally inserted through the mouth, leaving no scar behind but giving more definition to the patient’s face.
Normally used to remove double chins or bichat (cheek) fat.
Treatment of Facial Wrinkling (Chemical Peel): Local or twilight anesthesia is used and a chemical is placed and left on the skin. Once the chemical is removed, the skin will dry and peel off over the course of the next seven to ten days and patients must avoid exposure to the sun.
Treatment of Facial Scarring (Dermabrasion): Uses a spinning tool to file or sand down deep scars.
This procedure removes fat from under the jaw and neck area or other areas in the facial region where excess fat is negatively affecting facial and neck beauty and balance AND transfers the fat into areas where needed. These areas are frequently the marionette lines around the lips and nose, nasal furrows at the bridge of the nose and shallow areas in the cheek bone areas. These secondary areas are treated eliminating or reducing lines and wrinkle and enhancing areas like the cheek bone area or wherever enhancement is needed. A significant benefit is the use of one’s own tissue and cost reduction because more costly fillers are not necessary. Patients can return to work in just a few days with this in office procedure.
