FACIAL PLASTIC SURGERY PROCEDURES
Facelift – A Face Lift is performed by sculpting the neck by removing fat (typically with Liposuction), tightening the platysma muscle (the muscle running from the jaw to the clavicle) and the removal of excess skin. Drs. Dedo and Lipan utilize surgical techniques produce a long lasting natural jaw line that will stand the test of time.
Neck Lift – Neck lifts and Facelifts are usually performed together. A Neck Lift is performed by sculpting the neck by removing fat (typically with Liposuction), tightening the platysma muscle (running from the jaw to the clavicle) and removing excess skin.
Eyelid Surgery (Upper) – Ptosis is a drooping or falling of the upper lid as a result of damage or failure of the tendons and/or muscles that control the upper eyelid. A relatively simple procedure to reattach this tendon can be done and if desired the process can be performed at the time as an upper eyelid blepharoplasty thereby opening up the eye and getting a more youthful appearance.
Eyelid Surgery (Lower) – A lower eyelid Blepharoplasty removes the puffiness and bags under the eyes that make you look worn and tired. By making an incision on the inside of the lower eyelid, fat, excess skin and muscle can be removed through this hidden incision safely restoring the natural contour of the lower eyelid.
Ear Pinning – Typically an incision is made behind the ear from which the structure of the ear (cartilage) can be modified and reshaped. The incisions when healed will be concealed in the natural creases of the skin and ear.
Chin Augmentation – The ideal chin projection is a chin that touches a line dropped perpendicular from the edge of the lower lip; anything less than this is considered a “weak chin”. This can be corrected by a chin augmentation procedure, improving the balance of the facial profile.
Lip Augmentation – Frequently, Dr. Dedo and Dr. Lipan will use a combination of fillers to achieve the safest and best cosmetic result. For example, Filler injected along the border of the lip will turn the edge of the lip outward giving it a beautiful pouty appearance. Filler injected in the vertical lines that radiate out from the lips can create a smooth surface. Finally, a deep chemical peel (Exoderm) can remove fine lines around the lip area almost permanently.
BOTOX® Cosmetic injections – BOTOX® Cosmetic is a simple, non-surgical procedure for temporarily reducing the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows – the vertical frown lines between the eyebrows that look like an “11”. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine (purified protein) that is injected into the underlying muscles to weaken the muscles that produce these lines creating a smooth, relaxed and rejuvenated look.
Restylane – This product can be used to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth and may also be used for lip enhancement.
Juvederm – JUVÉDERM® is the smooth gel filler that your doctor uses to instantly smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose. With just one treatment, you’ll get smooth and natural-looking results that last up to a year.
Dysport – Dysport is a prescription injection for temporary improvement in the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) without changing the look of your whole face. The untreated facial muscles still work normally in untreated areas, allowing you to freely show facial expressions, such as smiling, for adults.
Exoderm Lift – An Exoderm lift is a deep chemical peel that changes not only the superficial effects of sun damage to include fine wrinkles, spots, superficial keratosis, and also it gently tightens the facial skin to improve the jaw line.
Tattoo Removal – The tattooed area is lightly abraded with a special hand piece similar to the one used in your original tattoo. A solution is released that helps draw out the pigment from the tattoo.
Photorejuvenation – is performed with a series on Intense Pulsed light treatments. The light penetrates the top layer of skin and acts upon the underlying layer of the dermis. The light energy seals small blood vessels, destroys melanin pigment, destroys hair follicles, and stimulates cells to produce new collagen which reduces wrinkles.
Laser Hair removal- – may be used to destroy hair follicles beneath the surface of the skin. The treatment may be performed on any area of the body and on any skin type if the correct source of light is used.
Macrodermabrasion – involves exfoliating the surface layer of the skin with a simple abrasive paddle. “Microdermabrasion removes the superficial portion of the skin,”. Removing the dead cells (which can clog pores and leave skin dull and lackluster), allows the younger, smoother skin beneath to be revealed.
Permanent Makeup – Get flawlessly applied permanent eyebrows, lips, and eyeliner. Permanent makeup provides perfect symmetry to, using a natural looking hair stroke technique. Pigment is applied that will compliment your skin tone and match your hair color.
