Achieving a younger-looking appearance is easy thanks to our wide variety of face procedures for Plano patients. 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. Sagging jowls, a double chin, wrinkles, and sunken cheeks can be corrected with a facelift. Removal of excess skin and manipulation of tissue are performed during a facelift to achieve a naturally youthful appearance.
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. Drooping lids can also cause vision impairment, adversely affecting quality of life.
Eyelid surgery or a CO2 laser procedure can be utilized to correct these issues. With blepharoplasty, sagging skin, bulging fat, and drooping muscle tissue can all be addressed to rejuvenate the upper and/or lower eyelids. This procedure results in a more energized look.
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. Thinning lips can give you a stern look.
To improve the fullness and definition of the lips, there are plenty of lip enhancement treatments you can consider. Injectable fillers provide immediate temporary volume improvement, or for permanent results, a lip lift can be performed.
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.
The combination of cosmetic techniques performed during a facial rejuvenation procedure varies for each individual and can include options like the facelift, rhinoplasty, injectable fillers, and laser treatments.
The treatment approach is customized to address the motivations and goals of every patient. Facial rejuvenation may involve a combination of non-invasive, minimally invasive, and surgical procedures to achieve the best outcome.
Cheek and chin implants are a great way to enhance a facial profile to improve the overall proportion and balance of the face. Implants in the cheeks can improve the prominence of the cheekbones or add more volume to the cheeks. Chin implants can redefine the jawline for improved contours and shape. They can also correct a weak, small, or receding chin to enhance facial aesthetics.
The laser resurfacing procedure is most commonly used to minimize the appearance of fine lines, especially around the mouth and the eyes. Laser treatments trigger skin renewal and promote collagen production to reduce visible signs of aging like age lines and wrinkles. Laser skin resurfacing may also benefit patients who have acne scars, hyperpigmentation, a dull complexion, and sun damage.
Did you know that your nose grows with age? Yes, it’s true! Becoming more bulbous and a bump can sometimes become more prominent. Rhinoplasty can address humps and bumps, enlarged nostrils, disproportionate size, a drooping or rounded nasal tip, a displeasing shape, and more.
Cosmetic rhinoplasty can make the nose more aesthetically pleasing and can balance it with the rest of the facial features. Functional rhinoplasty can improve nasal breathing by addressing obstructions.
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. Prominent ears can negatively affect a patient’s quality of life. Reshaping or adjusting the ears can improve facial symmetry and harmony. Children may be ideal candidates once the ears are fully developed—about age 5.
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. Sagging eyebrows, forehead creases, and frown lines can all be effectively addressed with a brow lift procedure. Also called a forehead lift, brow lift surgery smooths away fine lines and wrinkles in the upper facial region by removing excess skin and tightening the underlying tissue.
