Surgical Facial Rejuvenation at AW Plastic Surgery

Eyelid Surgery

Blepharoplasty is a procedure used to improve the appearance of the eyelids. Treatment is recommended for correcting loose or sagging skin on the upper lid (which may impair vision), puffiness or bags under the eyes; and drooping lids or excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid. Incision lines for both upper and lower eyelid surgery are concealed within the natural structure of the eyelid, so all anyone will see is your rejuvenated and youthful appearance. An eyelid lift is the perfect, subtle procedure for turning back the clock.

Facelift

As in other areas of our bodies, the aging process causes facial skin and tissue to lose elasticity and volume. Facelift surgery restores a naturally youthful facial appearance by lifting and firming the sagging tissue and removing any excess skin. Incisions are located just behind the hairline and around the front of the ear, hidden in the natural folds. Our patients typically choose facelift surgery to prevent costly upkeep of fillers, especially as cosmetic facial aging become exaggerated and non-surgical procedures do not deliver satisfactory results. We are committed to creating natural, beautiful results with facelifts.

Mini-Facelift

For individuals whose facial aging concerns are concentrated to the lower face, a mini-facelift might be recommended. This less invasive technique involves shorter incisions than a full facelift, correcting loose, sagging skin and deep creases around the mouth, chin, and jawline. These tend to be highly common problem areas, and treatment reveals a completely rejuvenated aesthetic. A mini facelift can also be combined with eyelid and brow lift procedures to deliver a stunning transformation.

Facial Fat Grafting

Facial fat grafting rejuvenates areas of the face that have experienced loss of natural fat pads and a reduction in skin-plumping collagen. The eyes, cheeks, and jawline are generally more pronounced and hollow-looking as we age. Think about facial fat grafting procedure as the natural and long-lasting way to fill facial hollows for a rejuvenating effect. Fat cells that are grafted and establish a blood supply are considered permanent. Some patients prefer fat grafting over dermal fillers.

Neck Lift

A neck lift improves the appearance of the jawline and neck, which are often affected by heredity, gravity, environmental conditions, fluctuating weight, medical conditions, and even stress. This procedure can be used to create a balance between a youthful looking facial aesthetic and the neck and jaw; having taught, firm skin on the face, but the appearance of a “turkey neck” often makes patients feel uncomfortable. After your procedure, you can enjoy the benefits of a smooth and sleek jawline and neckline, making you look many years younger.

Ear Surgery

Otoplasty or cosmetic ear surgery alters the size, position, and proportion of large, protruding ears. Treatment improves self-confidence and emphasizes patients’ natural beauty. There are several types of surgeries used to create the desired effect such as ear pinning or repositioning to create symmetry. During the consultation, the best procedure to address your concerns will be chosen. Incisions will be located based upon the changes desired but are generally positioned in inconspicuous locations where the ear meets the head or within the inner folds. Patients of any age can benefit from this treatment.

Brow Lift

The aging forehead affects our facial expressions; we can often look tired, worried, or even angry despite feeling our best. A brow lift rejuvenates the face and creates a refreshed, natural vibrancy. During this procedure, the upper one-third of the face is smoothed by removing excess sagging skin, repositioning the underlying muscle and tissues and eliminating deep furrows. A brow or forehead lift is a localized procedure that can create a youthful effect on the whole face.

Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty balances the proportions of the nose and can correct structural defects that cause impaired breathing. During surgery, cartilage can be added, removed or reshaped, depending on the needs of the patient. During recovery, a splint or packing and bandages are used to support and protect the nose. The effects are long-lasting and can help patients feel significantly more confident in their appearances. Rhinoplasty is recommended for patients who have always felt uncomfortable in the size and shape of their nose or those who suffered an injury that made their nose appear crooked.
