Facial Plastic Surgery
Your face is typically the first thing that people notice about you, so it’s natural to want to look your best. Your skin tells a story that might include years of laughs, animated storytelling, stress, and a wide range of other emotions that are etched on your face as you age. However, this doesn’t mean that you’re happy to see those fine lines and wrinkles. When you start to notice those signs of aging creeping in, Klosterstern Plastic Surgery can help. Utilizing the experience and artistry of our doctors, we can create a customized treatment plan to address whatever facial concerns you have, reversing damage and giving you a new lease on life.
What Are My Options For Facial Plastic Surgery?
Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)
Over time, the delicate skin around your eyes begins to lose elasticity, eventually succumbing to gravity and weakening muscles. The result is sagging, droopy eyelids that not only cause you to look older, but also adversely affect your vision. Eyelid surgery (or blepharoplasty) corrects these issues, refreshing your eyelid contour and restoring functionality. If upper eyelid sagging is your primary issue, your doctor will remove the loosely hanging skin and tighten the muscle responsible for lid movement. Problems with lower eyelids typically include drooping that exposes the white below the iris and causes irritation or drying, or pockets of fatty deposits under the eyes that leave an appearance of puffy bags. A lower eyelid blepharoplasty can solve these problems with an excision of excess skin and removal of unwanted fat. Blepharoplasty is an outpatient procedure that provides long-lasting results, giving you a more youthful look and improved vision.
Nose Reshaping (Rhinoplasty)
Nose reshaping surgery (or rhinoplasty) is typically performed if you have cosmetic concerns due to asymmetry, injury or deformity, or to correct certain breathing problems. Some of the most common issues that patients wish to correct include: An oversized nose A bulbous, upturned or hooked nose Bumps or dents in the bridge of the nose A crooked bridge, commonly due to injury An overly wide or flattened nose Nostrils that are too large or asymmetrical A deviated septum, causing an obstructed airway and breathing impairment If you have any of the above concerns, rhinoplasty may be the answer. Your doctor will meet with you, examine your nose and offer recommendations to address your concerns. Keep in mind that your nose needs to fit the existing proportions of your face, so it is essential that you have realistic goals concerning your results. The method your doctor uses for your rhinoplasty is determined by the level of correction you require. A closed rhinoplasty is performed using incisions hidden inside the nose, and an open rhinoplasty is performed using an incision across the columella (the bridge between your nostrils). While the results of your rhinoplasty will be visible once the initial swelling subsides, it can take up to a year for full results to show. However, once your nose settles into its improved shape, your newly shaped contour is permanent.
Face Lift (Rhytidectomy)
With age comes decreased skin elasticity, weakening of collagen and elastin fibers, and loss of fat in the face, causing hollowing of the cheeks and under the eyes. While there are several non-surgical options to fix these problems, once the injectable fillers and laser resurfacing procedures aren’t providing you the results you desire, a facelift may be the next step. A facelift (or rhytidectomy) can correct a number of problems caused by aging, sun damage, genetics, stress, or lifestyle choices. If you are bothered by any of the following, a facelift might be for you: Deep folds between the nose and the corner of your mouth (marionette lines) Loss of fat in your cheeks and under your eyes Fallen tissue in your cheeks, creating jowls Lax or loose skin, causing overall facial sagging Excess fat or skin on your neck, causing a double chin or turkey wattle Once you have undergone a facelift, there are additional procedures that can be performed to enhance your results. Use of fat transfer or injectable fillers can help restore lost volume, and skin treatments can improve the quality and texture of your skin. Facelift results are long-lasting, and can be maintained with a proper skin care regimen and sun protection, though the natural aging process will continue. A healthy lifestyle can help extend your results, so that you can enjoy a rejuvenated appearance for years to come.
Ear Surgery (Otoplasty)
Many people struggle with the size and shape of their ears, especially if they are big or seem out of proportion to your face. However, large or protruding ears can be a serious problem for both children and adults and can result in low self-esteem due to years of embarrassment or teasing. Ear surgery (or otoplasty) can improve the proportion, position or shape of your ears. Whether you’ve spent your entire life with ears that stick out or are misshapen, or a recent injury caused a deformity, otoplasty can correct your cosmetic ear issues. Otoplasty cannot correct hearing loss or deficiencies, but can: Create a more pleasing ear shape and size “Pin back” protruding ears Correct childhood deformities of the outer ear Bring balance and proportion to your face The results of your otoplasty will be noticeable immediately, and are permanent. Because of the position of the ears and the way the surgery is performed, incision scars are hidden in the natural creases of the ears.
If you are looking for a way to smooth out the beginnings of fine lines and wrinkles, or to improve the tone and quality of your skin, non-surgical procedures can help. Injectable treatments can restore lost volume to your cheeks and lips, or smooth out forehead wrinkles. Advances in skin treatments like chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and laser resurfacing procedures can not only refresh and repair your skin’s texture, but boost collagen for more beautiful and lasting results. Injectables and skin care solutions are temporary and require regular maintenance, but in some cases, consistent treatment can keep your skin looking refreshed for longer periods between sessions. If your skin is starting to show the effects of sun, genetics, and the natural aging process, but you’re not quite ready to consider surgery, non-surgical procedures can give you the youthful skin you want with little to no recovery or downtime.
