Introduction to Facial Plastic Surgery Procedures
Facial procedures have become very common, because our faces are the source of our physical expression. You have heard the saying, “You never get a second chance to make a first impression” or you may hear, “I don’t feel my face matches how youthful I feel inside.” Our physicians can advise you on the many surgical and non-surgical methods to rejuvenate your face and restore what Mother Nature and age have taken away. The surgeons will address your concerns on facial procedures individually to help you achieve a look that is more refreshed, youthful, and more importantly, “natural”.
As we age, a face and neck lift may be necessary to address the effects of gravity, sun exposure, and the stresses of life that can be seen in our faces.
Eyelid Surgery – Blepharoplasty
People of all ages can have problems with an aging eye area. The upper eyes become heavy and the lower eyes develop bags and dark circles, leaving a hollow or sunken appearance. Eyelid surgery or a CO2 laser procedure can be utilized to correct these issues.
As we age, our lips lose collagen and fat just like the rest of our skin, and environmental factors such as sun exposure, repeated sipping, pursing and smoking can make matters worse.
We approach the face with the concept of “facial rejuvenation”, a term that embodies a multitude of procedures from which you can choose in order to achieve the facial changes you are striving for.
Cheek and chin implants are a great way to enhance a facial profile to improve the overall proportion and balance of the face.
The laser resurfacing procedure is most commonly used to minimize the appearance of fine lines, especially around the mouth and the eyes.
Did you know that your nose grows with age? Yes, it’s true! Becoming more bulbous and a bump can sometimes become more prominent.
Ear Surgery – Otoplasty
Ear surgery, or otoplasty, is usually done to set prominent ears back closer to the head or to reduce the size of large ears.
Have you heard the expression, “The eyes are the window to our soul?” People of all ages can have problems with an aging eye area that can be related to eyelid skin or a heavy brow.
