WHAT IS FACIAL SURGERY?
Facial surgery refers to any type of cosmetic surgery performed on the face. Facial surgery varies from patient to patient, depending on the patient’s specific need and desire, but may include procedures to reduce the prominence of certain features, such as the nose or ears. Facial surgery may also be used to remove visible signs of aging, such as wrinkles, creases, or folds, or it may be used to re-sculpt the contours of the face by enhancing the cheekbones or chin. Facial surgery is always personalized for each patient depending on his or her specific problem areas.
Blepharoplasty, the medical term for eyelid surgery, can streamline the appearance of the eye area through the removal of extra skin and fat. This technique is commonly performed on patients with puffy under-eye bags, as well as those whose upper eyelids droop into their eyes. Many patients find that these effects cause them to look tired or older than they really are. Blepharoplasty surgery offers the opportunity to reverse these effects, helping you to look refreshed and rejuvenated.
Brow lifts, also called forehead lifts, can counteract this effect. During a brow lift surgery, the skin above the brows is elevated and smoothed for a refreshed and younger-looking appearance. Brow lift surgery helps patients achieve a fresh, smooth, youthful appearance by eliminating the wrinkles, creases, and deep folds that develop on the forehead and repositioning the brow line to its ideal position.
A chin implant, also called chin augmentation surgery, is a cosmetic surgical procedure that adds definition, volume, and proportion to an underdeveloped chin using implants that are inserted inside the chin. Chin implants are used in the chin augmentation procedure to increase the size and define the shape of the chin, resulting in a more balanced facial structure.
The procedure depends entirely on the type and amount of damage and your desired outcome. We have many years of experience with a wide variety of repair techniques. We can, for example, stitch tears and reshape an earlobe to match your face and your other ear. With sagging skin and/or holes, he can remove the extra skin, close the holes and contour the lobe.
A neck lift is a surgical procedure to tighten the area around the neck and jawline. It is a highly personalized procedure. Sometimes people will notice signs of aging around their neck before their face. This may include excess fat creating jowls, fatty deposits under the chin, muscle banding, and loose neck skin. A neck lift will help restore youthful contours to your neck without having to undergo a full facelift.
Facial fat grafting, also known as facial fat transfer, is the surgical procedure in which fat is taken from one part of the body and injected into the face, thereby smoothing out wrinkles and plumping up the skin again. Facial fat grafting is a relatively new advance in plastic surgery based on an old idea. The practice of taking fat from one part of the body and using it as a filler in another part dates all the way back to 1893, though the procedure as we know it today did not gain popularity until liposuction was developed in the 1980s.
In today’s society, beauty is often defined as strong cheekbones and a well-defined chin. Facial implants are primarily used to create an attractive face with more proportion, structure, and symmetry. Made of solid, FDA-approved components such as silicon or porous polyethylene, facial implants are compatible with all human tissues, so they are perfect for enhancing the physical facial features. For example, cheek implants for strong cheek bones reflect the light and create a symmetrical and pleasing facial appearance.
Also referred to as bone advancement surgery, genioplasty is designed to reconstruct and restore the proportions of a patient’s lower third of the face by altering their chin. In some cases with significant jaw size discrepancy or bite problems, the most effective way to do this is to gently slide the jaw forward. Other patients will benefit from implants placed just at the end of their chin to improve their facial proportions. Genioplasty is typically carried out with other cosmetic procedures such as rhinoplasty, orthognathic (corrective jaw surgery) or a facelift to produce more balanced results.
A gummy smile is a term used to describe a smile in which there is an excessive amount of gum showing between the upper lip and the upper row of teeth. A smile looks perfect when the upper lip sits just above the top row of teeth, revealing barely any gum tissue. A gummy smile, however, reveals an excessive amount of gum tissue and creates a noticeably disproportionate gum-to-tooth ratio. About 15 percent of all Americans are affected by gummy smiles.The condition is especially common among women and younger people. During gummy smile surgery, a small implant is used to reposition the upper lip, resulting in a more balanced gum-to-tooth ratio when you smile.
A facelift is a surgical procedure that corrects signs of aging and improves the contours of the middle and lower one-third of the face. Facelift surgery accomplishes this by addressing the soft tissue descent of the midface in addition to the jowls and excess skin along the neck and jawline. If you suffer from these age-related imperfections, a facelift may be the solution you need to enjoy a more youthful appearance.
The mini facelift is a surgical procedure that tightens loose, sagging skin along the jaw line and beneath the chin, resulting in a firmer facial contour and a more youthful appearance. The mini facelift is popular among men and women and may sometimes be performed in conjunction with blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery. In some cases, injectable fillers may also be used to complete the procedure.
Orthognathic surgery is a specialized procedure that is effective in correcting a range of minor and major misalignments in the jaw. The surgery can improve your ability to chew, speak, talk, and breathe. Orthognathic surgery also called corrective jaw surgery, can be especially beneficial in correcting overbites, underbites, asymmetrical jawlines, and more. Your orthodontist will often work closely with our surgeon to help develop the best course of action for you.
OTOPLASTY (Ear Surgery)
Otoplasty, also known as ear surgery, is a plastic surgery procedure that is used to correct the shape, position or proportion of the ears. Otoplasty is also used to correct structural defects in the ear caused by genetics or injury.
Rhinoplasty, often called a nose job, is a form of surgery used to shape the nose. During rhinoplasty, the cartilage, bone and soft tissues of the nose are sculpted. This technique can correct many common nose shape-related complaints, such as a large tip, a bump on the bridge, an asymmetrical shape or a downturned tip. Fort Lauderdale and Broward County area patients can also undergo rhinoplasty surgery to fix a number of structural concerns, such as a deviated septum or broken nose.
