Facelift, alsoreferred to as rhytidectomy, is a procedure to improve sagging facial skin, jowls and loose neck skin. The need for this procedure occurs as we age. Our skin looses it’s natural elasticity, the muscles begin to droop and the fatty tissue in our face and neck decrease in volume. This causes the skin to fit more loosely and creates more visible lines and wrinkles. This is an excellent procedure for a man or woman looking to restore a more youthful and fresh appearance to their face and neck while reducing the most visible signs of aging. We accomplish this by removing excess fat, tightening muscles and re-draping the skin.
A brow lift, also know as a forehead lift, minimizes the creases that develop across the forehead, or those that occur high on the bridge of the nose; improves what are commonly referred to as frown lines; and repositions a low or sagging brow. Brow lift surgery may be performed through multiple limited incisions in the hairline or through a single incision. Incisions are typically closed with removable sutures, stables, skin adhesives or surgical tape/clips. Brow elevation may be acco9mplished with the use of permanent sutures and/or surgical screws.
Blepharoplasty (blef’ah-ro-plas”te), also known as eyelid surgery, is a procedure performed on the upper and/or lower eyelids to remove excess skin and fat. Our goal is to give your face a more alert, youthful appearance by correcting drooping eyelids (upper lid blepharoplasty) and puffy bags below the eyes (lower lid blepharoplasty).
Our eyes are our “windows to the world” and show expression more than any other part of our anatomy. Changes in the structures surrounding our eyes may falsely convey impressions of our feelings. For example, lower lid puffiness may indicate recent crying or sadness; overdeveloped fat pads in the upper lids may indicate fatigue or deep sagging eyebrows can indicate a great burden.
If protruding or disﬁgured ears bother you or your child, ear surgery — also known as otoplasty—can improve the shape, position or proportion of the ear. It can correct a defect in the ear structure that is present at birth, that becomes apparent with development or it can treat misshapen ears caused by injury.
