Blepharoplasty rejuvenates the upper and lower eyelids by removing and sculpting excess skin and smoothing wrinkles. During upper blepharoplasty, excess skin, fat, and muscle are sculpted through small incisions made in the skin of the eyelid. Lower blepharoplasty removes skin and fat to improve the shape of the lower eyelid. Adding or transposing fat can be accomplished with a “no stitch” method. Laser skin resurfacing can be performed at the same time to the lower eyelids to enhance your results. A blepharoplasty can be accomplished with a blade, a cautery, or a laser. You may be given the OK to drive in two to three days and to wear makeup in 10 to 14 days.
Rhytidectomy tightens the jowls and neck. Loose facial skin, fatty tissue, and muscle are lifted and tightened through an incision that starts at the hairline and extends behind the ear. Your surgeon may perform this under local anesthesia, IV sedation, or general anesthesia. It is typically an outpatient procedure. You may resume normal activities within three to five days.
Repositions the soft tissues in the forehead, tightens sagging skin, and removes deep worry lines. A direct brow lift removes skin and muscle above the eyebrows. A mid-forehead lift removes excess skin, fat, and sometimes muscles through incisions in the lines of the forehead. A coronal forehead lift requires an ear-to-ear incision above the forehead to remove excess skin and elevate the entire forehead and brow. Recovery from this outpatient procedure may take up to 10 days.
Excess fat deposits are removed from the face or neck by high-powered suction via a hollow tube that is placed under the skin through a small incision. This outpatient procedure may require general anesthesia. Bruising and numbness subside over several months. An alternative is to inject Kybella in three to four sessions to permanently dissolve unwanted fat.
Your surgeon sculpts the shape of your new nose by removing and reshaping bone and cartilage, and possibly adding tissue, through incisions made inside the nose. A splint is applied to help the nose retain its new shape while it heals. This outpatient procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia. Swelling and bruising will improve in 10 to 14 days.
Otoplasty, or "ear pinning," corrects protruding ears or changes the shape or size of overly large ears. Ear cartilage is reshaped through small incisions typically made on the back of the ear. This outpatient procedure requires local anesthesia with IV sedation. You should feel better within two weeks.
These can enhance small chins or weak jaws or aid in facial contouring. Using strategically placed incisions, your surgeon implants solid, biocompatible material in your cheekbones, jaw, or chin to add volume, increase projection, and enhance the structure of your face. Recovery from this outpatient procedure takes two weeks. Swelling may subside over several months.
Improves and enhances the appearance of your neck. Depending on your needs, your surgeon may recommend liposuction to remove excess fat, surgical tightening of sagging skin, or surgery (known as cervicoplasty or platysmaplasty) to alter or remove weak or loose neck muscles. Liposuction or Botox injections may be recommended to relax a look of “fullness” or bands around your neck.
