What is Facial Rejuvenation?
Your face is the most significant part of your physical appearance. If the face appears tired or shows signs of aging, it makes an impact on the overall appearance even if the rest of the body is still relatively youthful. A number of surgical procedures are available today to reverse the prominent signs of aging from the face, and provide a long lasting, youthful look.
For plastic surgery in Maryland or Virginia for your face, Dr. Jabs and Dr. Richards can guide you about the most appropriate surgical choices available in your case, and help you make the best decision to meet your goals. Some of the key facial rejuvenation surgeries provided at Cosmetic Surgery Associates in Bethseda, MD and McLean VA include face and neck lifts, Quicklift Mini facelift, brow lift, eyelid surgery, ear surgery, chin augmentation and rhinoplasty or nose surgery.
Facial Rejuvenation Procedures
Forehead lift or brow lift may become necessary if you have sagging brows and visible horizontal lines and deep furrows that make you appear tired, angry or sad. The procedure is designed to correct the droopy look in the area above the eyes. The loosened tissue and muscle that cause the condition are tightened to raise the eyebrows, smooth the forehead, and reduce the frown.
If your chin is disproportionately small or depressed, a chin implant procedure is an effective option to restore your facial balance and harmony. The procedure involves placement of an artificial implant through a small incision through the mouth or underneath the chin. The tissue grows naturally into the implant, and integrates it naturally with the rest of the face. The procedure is usually performed in combination with liposuction of the neck to achieve improved balance and more pronounced chin.
If you suffer from excess fat pockets and saggy skin over your upper and lower eyelids, it can make you look tired and older. Eyelid surgery can be performed to reduce puffy bags beneath the lower eyelids and droopiness above the upper eyelids. The procedure can be completed within one to two hours in most cases. Recovery period is about one week, after which most patients are ready to go back to their regular work routine.
Face and Neck Lift
Face and neck lift is the most comprehensive facial surgical procedure available to reduce the signs of aging and provide a younger looking face. The focus is on rejuvenating the midface and lower face through surgery. Two prominent areas that show visible aging include the cheeks and the neck. Therefore, one of the key goals of a facelift is to achieve a clear jaw line with a smooth neck, while removing the saggy and loose skin and reducing excess fat deposits. If you are considering cosmetic surgery in Maryland or Virginia, you have an opportunity to visit the offices of Cosmetic Surgery Associates for a consultation to determine the most suitable treatment options for you.
Nasal surgery or rhinoplasty is a facial rejuvenation procedure to improve the size or shape of the nose to make the face appear more attractive. It may look to be a minor surgery, but the impact can be significant for your face because nose is a crucial part of facial beauty and symmetry. Rhinoplasty can be used to change the shape of the nasal tip, remove a hump on the nose bridge, straighten a crooked nose, or increase or decrease its size. Sometimes rhinoplasty may be performed as a corrective procedure to improve breathing.
Ear surgery or otoplasty can improve the size and shape of the ears to make your face more harmonious and attractive. The procedure is often performed to make large ears less prominent or to set them closer to the head. The surgery can be performed on kids under local anesthesia because ears usually achieve their full development in childhood. Adults in need of this plastic surgery in Virginia or Maryland may also choose to receive this treatment at Cosmetic Surgery Associates.
QuickLift Mini Facelift
QuickLift is a state of the art procedure to achieve lower face lift and neck lift with natural looking results. The procedure is less invasive, involving minimal downtime and it is ideal for men and women in the age group of 40 to 65.
