Blepharoplasty, or eyelid lift surgery is one of the most common plastic surgical procedures performed. Over time, changes to the upper eyelid skin and underlying soft tissues can result in a fatigued appearance. In addition, changes to the skin, muscle, fat, and facial bones can alter one’s lower eyelids. Blepharoplasty surgery can help rejuvenate your eyes and help you look as good as you feel. Each patient is unique, and an individualized approach to eyelid surgery is necessary in order to obtain the best result. Blepharoplasty can be performed to the upper lids, the lower lids or for all four lids.
A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, reduces the wrinkle lines that develop horizontally across the forehead, as well as those that occur on the bridge of the nose, between the eyes. The purpose of a brow lift is to improve frown lines (the vertical creases that develop between the eyebrows), to raise sagging brows that are hooding the upper eyelids, and to place the eyebrows in a youthful position.
A mid-face lift, also called a cheek lift, addresses sagging of the cheeks and the surrounding area. A cheek lift elevates the fat pad in the cheek (called the malar fat pad), providing fullness to the cheeks – leading to a refreshed, rejuvenated look.
Ear Lobe Repair
Torn or stretched ear lobes can often be repaired in the office with local anesthesia. Fine sutures are placed and then removed in the office in one week. The result is typically a very fine scar that is minimally visible. The ear can be pierced again, though it is recommended to wait 8 weeks after the repair to re-pierce.
