Facial Plastic Surgery Procedures We Offer
According to surveys, more than 80% of adults would have facial plastic surgery if given the opportunity. We can find evidence of this in statistics that indicate a marked increase in the number of facial procedures performed annually over the course of recent years. Facial plastic surgery is often sought by people who want to correct the common signs of aging. Various procedures can also improve facial symmetry and can be beneficial regardless of the patient's age. We are proud to offer a wide variety of facial plastic surgery services in an office designed for patient comfort.
People get rhinoplasty for a variety of reasons. This popular surgery can correct cosmetic or functional problems with very little downtime. Reasons for rhinoplasty procedures range from wanting a straighter nose to reducing a hump on the bridge of a nose or reshaping the nasal tip. A nose job may repair trauma to the nose or may refine internal structures to improve breathing.
The signs of aging can at some point progress beyond the capabilities of injectable wrinkle-reducers and soft tissue fillers. For more profound facial rejuvenation, we offer facelift surgery. Dr. Serebrakian is known for his attention to detail and success in achieving beautiful, natural-looking results. The outpatient procedure focuses on repositioning the tissues of the mid face that have descended downward. This descent is a leading reason we develop jowls, sagging at the sides of the jawline. In addition to restoring better jawline contours, a facelift can give the cheeks back a bit of their youthful contour and can reduce the appearance of mild to moderate nasolabial folds. With conservative techniques and hidden incisions, today's facelift can acheive results that look great without looking like you've had work done.
Our eyes say a lot about us, and so can very easily send the wrong message. Signs of aging around the eyes include dark circles, puffiness under the eyes, and hooded upper eyelids. Depending on the degree of laxity that affects the upper area of the eye, a person's vision may be affected. Blepharoplasty is a precision technique performed through hidden incisions. The procedure can focus only on the upper or lower eyelids or may address both areas at once to achieve dramatic improvements. Below the eyes, blepharoplasty works by repositioning or removing fatty tissue and tightening the skin to create a smooth transition from the upper cheek. Upper eyelid blepharoplasty opens up the eyes by trimming excess skin. This procedure can restore the natural eyelid crease and restore a more youthful appearance with minimal downtime.
The appearance of the eyes is influenced by the position of the eyebrows. With age, the eyebrows often fall downward and press on the upper eyelids. Some patients who believe they need blepharoplasty are actually great candidates for a brow lift. This minimally-invasive procedure repositions the brows, with the ideal curvature, to their position near the upper orbital rim. This is the bony ridge that sits over the eyes. A brow lift can reduce upper eyelid heaviness, lower eyelid puffiness, crow's feet, and worry lines on the forehead. Dr. Serebrakian determines the best brow lift technique via a thorough examination and consultation.
The skin on the neck and just under the chin is relatively delicate compared to other parts of the body. This area is influenced by sun exposure, weight, and biological changes. Over time, tissue laxity may lead to concerns like a double-chin or what we call a turkey neck. The neck lift is a customized procedure performed through discreet incisions. It sculpts the neck and jawline area by removing excess fatty tissue and tightening the skin to soften or eliminate horizontal wrinkles and other creases. If you are starting to feel concerned about the signs of aging on your lower face, it is beneficial to also look at your neck for equally significant laxity and wrinkling. The neck has a knack for giving away your age.
A gorgeous face is all about balance and proportion. People who are not born with ideal facial contours can still get them. While most turn to dermal fillers for slight augmentation of areas like the cheeks or chin, the results of injectable treatments are only temporary. Facial implants can last indefinitely and they are also crafted to perfectly shape the target area to relate harmoniously with other facial features. A chin implant may be an optimal treatment option for patients considering rhinoplasty because the chin and the nose are integral to facial structure. Implants are beneficial for people with a weak jawline or recessed chin, and are often used in reconstructive procedures developed to repair the cosmetic effects of traumatic injuries.
Liposuction and cervicoplasty procedures can address excess neck fat and tissue laxity. The two procedures can be combined for a "lower facelift" effect, or they can be performed independently to give the neck a slimmer, more sculpted look. Face and neck liposuction can be combined with a facelift or neck lift as needed to achieve optimal cosmetic outcomes. The downtime associated with these procedures is minimal and results are long-lasting.
