There are several options for cosmetic surgery treatments to enhance certain facial features. These treatments include facelifts, eyelid surgery, nose reshaping, and more. Here are some of the best treatments we offer at Somerset Plastic Surgery:
The facelift, also known as rhytidectomy, is one of the more effective procedures for reversing the visible signs of aging. The skin typically loses its elasticity with age, leading to sagging and wrinkle formation. A facelift aims to counteract these effects by lifting and tightening the facial tissues, resulting in a smoother, more youthful appearance.
During cosmetic surgery, like a facelift, our skilled surgeons can reposition underlying tissues, remove excess skin, and redefine facial contours. This procedure may be particularly beneficial for addressing sagging jowls, deep creases, and loose skin on the neck. With advancements in anesthesia and minimally invasive approaches, recovery times can be significantly reduced. This makes the facelift a viable option for those with busy lifestyles.
Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, can help rejuvenate and revitalize this expressive area. As we age, the skin around the eyes tends to lose its elasticity, leading to sagging eyelids and the formation of bags or puffiness. Eyelid surgery can address these concerns, restoring a youthful and vibrant appearance to the eyes.
Upper eyelid surgery involves the removal of excess skin and fat deposits that contribute to hooded or droopy eyelids. Lower eyelid surgery typically focuses on reducing puffiness and eliminating under-eye bags. This procedure is not only cosmetic but can also have functional benefits. You may experience improvement in your peripheral vision as we remove obstructive excess skin.
Nose reshaping, or rhinoplasty, is a procedure that can enhance your face by addressing the nose’s size, shape, and proportions. Whether seeking to correct a congenital issue, improve breathing function, or enhance aesthetic appeal, a rhinoplasty is a versatile solution. It can help to prevent snoring, repair a broken nose, or fix sinuses that have caused issues in the past.
Our surgeons can help sculpt the nasal bridge, refine the tip, and alter the nostril size to achieve your desired outcome. A rhinoplasty can also address structural issues such as a deviated septum. This can provide functional improvements as well as aesthetic ones.
Aging often shows in the forehead area. You can see the development of forehead lines, frown lines, and sagging eyebrows. A forehead lift, also known as a brow lift, is generally designed to counteract these effects. It can restore a more youthful and refreshed appearance to the upper face.
During a forehead lift, our surgeons can reposition and lift the underlying tissues of the forehead. This can smooth out wrinkles and raise the eyebrows to address specific concerns, such as horizontal forehead lines or a sagging brow. Advancements in endoscopic techniques have typically made forehead lifts less invasive. This may result in smaller incisions, reduced scarring, and quicker recovery times.
Botox injections can be an effective option for those seeking to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Administered through a series of small injections, Botox generally targets lines that form due to repeated muscle contractions, such as those caused by facial expressions. Some common treatment areas may include frown lines between the eyebrows, crow’s feet around the eyes, and most forehead lines.
One of the key advantages of Botox is its non-invasive nature. Patients can achieve noticeable results without the need for surgery or extended downtime. The procedure is often quick, taking less than 30 minutes, and most individuals can resume their normal activities immediately afterward. Botox treatments can yield natural-looking results as they can preserve your facial expressions while softening the appearance of wrinkles. While Botox is not a permanent solution, the results typically last for several months. Regular maintenance treatments can prolong the benefits over time.
Botox and Surgical Procedures
Botox can complement some surgical facial procedures by enhancing and maintaining the results. Some individuals opt for Botox treatments in conjunction with facelifts or eyelid surgery to address both dynamic and static wrinkles. This can create a comprehensive approach to facial rejuvenation.
JUVÉDERM is a brand of dermal fillers typically designed to add volume and smooth lines and restore youthful contours to the face. JUVÉDERM offers a versatile solution for those seeking a non-invasive approach to facial rejuvenation. As we age, the face may lose volume, developing lines, wrinkles, and hollow areas. JUVÉDERM’s range of dermal fillers can address these concerns by replenishing lost volume, effectively restoring a more youthful and vibrant appearance. Common treatment areas include the cheeks, lips, and nasolabial folds.
