Facial Plastic Surgery Gainesville FL
Over time, the effects of gravity, sun exposure, heredity and the basic stresses of living are revealed in the face. Modern surgery techniques can now reduce the aged appearance by removing excess fat and skin as well as tightening the facial muscles, thus eliminating most wrinkling and sagging. If you have been considering a Face Lift (rhytidectomy), the latest surgical approaches permit you to have safe, natural looking, dramatic and longer lasting results with less down time.
Depending on your feature and the recommendation of Dr. Poser, you may undergo cosmetic eyelid enhancement on either the upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both. Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) removes excess skin from the upper and lower eyelids to eliminate puffiness around the eyes. New techniques provide additional contouring capabilities. Corners of the eyes can be elevated to achieve a very elegant look, expression muscles can be strengthened to erase wrinkles, and tone can be added to provide a more rested, youthful.
A full or sagging neck can be the result of age, genetics, and excessive weight gain or weight loss. Neck Lifts and Liposuction of the neck are used to correct sagging or loose skin on the neck as well as improve the appearance of double chin and to better define jaw lines.
The forehead/brow lift corrects sagging eyebrows, horizontal expression lines and forehead wrinkles. Improvements are made to the deep muscles as the skin and superficial muscles are tightened for a more youthful appearance. Proper eyebrow positioning is an essential component in the correction of the aging eyelid. As we age, our brows descend, creating an aged appearance on the face. The goal of an eyebrow lift is to restore the posture and contour of the eyebrow and thus improve the appearance of the upper lid.
Nose contouring surgery (rhinoplasty) reshapes the nose to improve its appearance and proportion in relation to other facial features. Bringing the nose into balance with the rest of the face can dramatically improve one’s appearance. If breathing through your nose is a problem, Rhinoplasty can be combined with Septoplasty to correct the interior chambers of your nose to effectively restore the capacity to breathe feely. Whether you wish to affect a change to your profile or breathe more easily, nasal surgeries modern techniques allow you to have safe and dramatic results.
If protruding ears bother you or your child, you may consider plastic surgery of the ear, also known as otoplasty. Ear reshaping surgery (otoplasty) is a plastic surgery procedure performed to improve the shape, position, or proportion of the ear. It can correct a defect in the ear structure that is sometimes present at birth or that becomes apparent with child development – or it can treat misshapen ears caused by injury. In general, ear surgery (otoplasty) creates a natural shape, and brings balance and proportion to the ears and face
Laser skin resurfacing is a treatment used to treat sun damaged skin, facial wrinkles, and scars in a procedure using a (CO2) laser. The CO2 Laser is a surgical laser, a beam of light capable of removing unwanted tissue. These lasers vaporize skin cells by emitting bursts of radiation that are absorbed by water in these cells. Skin imperfections are rapidly and accurately treated one layer at a time without bleeding, while the underlying tissue is preserved. As a result your skin is left with a more natural youthful appearance.
The laser is used to reduce tiny wrinkles, acne scars and other minor skin imperfections, especially around the mouth and eyes. It can improve sun-damaged and acne scarred skin
Whether caused by accident or surgery, the appearance of scars can be significantly improved through a series of steroid injections and/or surgical procedures like Dermabrasion and laser resurfacing. By surgically removing layers of damaged tissue, these procedures soften the edges of surface irregularities leaving the skin with a smoother, more desirable appearance. Scar tissue forms as a natural part of the healing process. When the skin has been broken, whether by accident or by surgery, a scar will usually form. The extent of the scar may be affected by the size, depth, and location of the injury as well as by a person's age, hereditary factors, and characteristics of the skin.
