The desire for a more youthful appearance is common among men and women. The decision to seek a change in your appearance is highly personal and should be made only after you have considered all of the options along with the risks and benefits.
As we age our skin and connective tissue loses elasticity and the shape of our facial features changes. We begin to notice a “droop” to our tissues often associated with a loss or displacement of fat that leads to a sagging appearance. A common complaint is “I am starting to look like my mother/father”. A marked improvement can be made by realigning and tightening both the underlying soft tissue and the skin. In some cases the addition of soft tissue fillers or an implant can have dramatic effects.
The decision to improve your appearance is highly personal. You want a specific look and a Doctor that understands your concerns and desires.
You want an experienced surgeon with an artistic eye who dwells on details and puts your well being above all else.
Doctor Dean Jabs, Doctor Frank Richards and Doctor Keshav Magge are those surgeons. Specializing in facial rejuvenation using the latest techniques with the shortest possible incisions and long acting anesthetics, you will recover faster and be more comfortable in the post operative period.
When you choose Cosmetic Surgery Associates, you enter into a relationship built on mutual trust and respect. We look forward to seeing you.
At the initial consultation a history will be taken and we will try to understand what is most important to you. After a brief examination we will discuss the various options for you to achieve your goals.
(Browlift) Many people notice excess skin in the upper and lower eyelids and attribute this to loss of elasticity. What in fact has often occurred is the eyebrow has become too low and needs to be lifted. This can have a dramatic effect on appearance. In addition, at the time it is done, the corrugator (wrinkler) muscles that cause lines between the eyes can be weakened to give a better appearance.
(Blepharoplasty) Sagging and bagging of the lids can be corrected by a judicious removal of fat and skin. The lower lid often requires tightening (canthopexy) to restore a youthful appearance. All of this can be done with minimal incisions.
(Midface lift) The area of tissue beneath the eye down to the
naso-labial fold can be elevated to restore a youthful roundness to the
face and decrease the fold formed when we smile. This can be performed
through two tiny incisions in the fold itself.
Face and Neck
(Facelift or “Rhytidectomy“, S-lift, Mini-lift) Two of the most obvious areas of facial ageing are the cheeks and the neck. A clear jaw line with a smooth neck devoid of sagging skin looks younger. This can often be achieved by sculpting the neck with liposuction, tightening the neck muscles and removing excess skin with an “S” shaped incision around the ear. This “mini” or ‘S” lift is very safe, heals quickly and does not look overdone.
We prefer to perform surgery in a certified surgery center. Plan on spending 4 to 6 hours from beginning to end. You will need a ride home afterward.
It’s true – facial rejuvenation cannot stop the aging process; however it can make you appear years younger. Through the removal of excess fat, tightening of underlying muscles, and redraping of facial skin, a facelift can most definitely “set back the clock.”
