Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)


Droopy upper eyelids and puffy bags under the eyes can make you look older and more tired than you feel. "Blepharoplasty" or eyelid surgery is the most commonly performed facial plastic surgical procedure. By removing small amounts of excess skin and fat one can transform the eyelid region to a more youthful and refreshed look.

Browlift (Endoscopic Forehead Lift)

A forehead lift or "browlift" is a procedure that restores a more youthful, refreshed, and cheery look to the forehead, eye brows and upper eyelid areas. By removing excess skin and muscle, the procedure corrects drooping brows, improves the horizontal lines and furrows that can make you look angry, sad or tired, and tightening the skin of the upper eyelid. The incisions are well hidden along the frontal hairline or in the hair, and with the use of an endoscope (a small camera that allows the procedure to be performed with minimal incisions), the incisions are almost impossible to see. The particular type of incision to be used is dependent on your goals and desires. Also, a forehead lift is often performed in conjunction with eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) or a facelift to provide a smoother, overall balanced look to the eyes and face.


Facelift (Rhytidectomy)


Aging of the face is inevitable, and with time the skin of the face and neck loosen. Age, sun exposure, gravity, and genetics all contribute to skin changes. Fine lines become wrinkles, and gradually deeper folds. The jaw line softens into jowls, and beneath the chin excess skin starts to sag. As the aging population grows, it is no wonder why facelifting has become the third most performed facial cosmetic procedure.



Mini-Facelift

The Mini-facelift is an ideal alternative to a full facelift with many of the same results. It can take ten year's off a patient's appearance and tends to last 7 to 10 years.

The surgery is similar to the traditional facelift, but the difference comes from making a shorter incision resulting in a smaller scar, less swelling and quicker recovery time. The patient can usually return to work in 5 to 7 days. Ideal for busy people who want to reverse and stave off the aging process without major downtime.


Surgery of the Nose (Rhinoplasty)
 
Rhinoplasty is performed to change the appearance of the nose to be more aesthetic and pleasing. Sometimes the hump is removed, usually the nose is thinned out at the tip and slightly elevated. It is usually necessary to narrow the nose at the time of surgery. A splint and packing are removed by the 5th day and most people are presentable in approximately a week to 10 days. If you have difficulty breathing, your insurance may pay for a portion of the procedure.
