FACIAL PLASTIC SURGERY
As we age, gravity takes its most obvious toll on our faces. Over time, we all experience a loss of skin elasticity and muscle tone of the face and neck. If you have developed facial and neck wrinkles, deep creases between the base of your nose and the corners of your mouth (frequently referred to as “parentheses”), or the appearance of jowls, a facelift can help turn back the clock.
Dr. Lajo carefully and skillfully creates a more rested and youthful contour to the face and neck by tightening muscles and removing excess skin and fat. Results range from subtle to dramatic, depending upon your personal preferences.
Additional procedures that can enhance the result of a facelift are eyelid lift or brow lift
Many people seek brow lift surgery to correct the deep vertical furrows between the eyebrows that cause us to look worried or stressed. Another common reason for brow lift surgery is to correct a sagging forehead or brows that hang too low and too close to the eyes, creating a tired, aging appearance.
By surgically lifting the brow or forehead, Dr. Lajo can create a more youthful and rested appearance to the upper face, helping you look years younger.
A neck lift is commonly sought to tighten loose skin under the chin, which is a common sign of aging. Also, if you have localized deposits of fat in the front of your neck or under your chin, then you are a good candidate for a neck lift.
By removing excess skin and fat under the chin and in the front of the neck, Dr. Lajo can help you look younger by creating a better contour. Fat is suctioned or excised, muscles may be tightened, and skin may be removed, all depending on your particular needs. People are often self-conscious about sagging neck skin and look and feel significantly younger after surgery. Additional procedures that can enhance the result of a neck lift are facelift or liposuction.
Wrinkles and sagging skin around our eyes can make us look tired and older than we feel. Puffy pouches of fat in the upper and/or lower lids creates an exhausted appearance, and excessive skin in the upper eyelid can even interfere with your vision.
Dr. Lajo can help you look dramatically younger and more rested through upper and/or lower eyelid lift surgery. If sagging eyelids are interfering with your vision, then an eyelid lift can widen your visual field, creating less strain on your eyes.
Nasal Surgery (Rhinoplasty)
People choose nasal surgery (rhinoplasty) for a number of reasons. If you feel that your nose does not fit with the rest of your face, or creates an imbalanced appearance, then you may be interested in nasal surgery. Nose reshaping is also appropriate if the nose has been disfigured due to an injury, birth defect, or disease.
After listening to your expectations, Dr. Lajo carefully sculpts the nose to produce a more attractive appearance that is in better proportion to the rest of your face. The result is a nose that fits your face and looks completely natural.
Ear Reshaping / Lobe Repair
If you are self-conscious about the size or shape of your ears, or if your ears stick out too far from the side of your head, then you might consider ear reshaping surgery. Or, if you have experienced damage to your earlobes from earrings, then you may be interested in earlobe repair. Dr. Lajo can reshape the ears and repair the earlobes to create the appearance that you desire.
