Facial Procedures Can Turn Back The Clock

Jun 28, 2008
Thread Lift are a patented self anchoring thread technology that permits a minimally invasive surgical approach for elevation and fixation of skin.

These threads are made from polypropylene, a material that has been used inside the human body as a suture material for decades. Threads are designed to attach to the subdermal tissue, lifting, suspending and fixating contour of the brow, midface and neck areas.

Patient And Procedural Benefits
(When compared to traditional surgical approaches)

* Minimally invasive approach with minimal scarring
* Reduced procedural and recovery time
* Patient satisfaction is more immediate
* No General Anesthesia - local anesthesia and sedation as required
* Lower risk of complication

Cheek Augmentation

One of the most dramatic improvements in facial appearance can be achieved by cheek augmentation. A subtle, shapely heightening and enlargement can add to a youthful, attractive appearance. It also will aid in tightening relaxed cheek skin tissue to further give a more youthful result. It can add to the improved contour of a very flat lower eyelid base.

Chin Implants

In our experience, creating subtle but definite proportion, size, and projection to a small, recessive chin may add tremendously to one's appearance. This is performed by making a small incision either inside the mouth where the lower lip joins the teeth (the preferred location) or in the small crease line under the chin. A small pocket is created directly over the bone exactly the size of the implant to avoid shifting or implant movement. The implants come in different sizes and shapes. The choice depends on your desired change and the doctor's judgment. Normally antibiotics are given before and after surgery to decrease the risk of infection.

Ear Correction (Otoplasty)

Otoplasty is a surgical procedure in which large or prominent ears are sculptured and brought in closer to the head to correct their appearance. Whether undesirable ear shape or size is the result of heredity or developmental abnormalities, the operation can be performed any time after the age of four. We perform otoplasty on adults as well as children, but in cases of severe disfigurement, much can be gained by having the surgery performed at a young age. By operating on a pre-school age child, we can prevent the development of emotional problems which sometimes stem from the child's sense of being "different". In older individuals ear lobe size can be a concern and lobe reduction can be done.

In most cases, otoplasty is deemed an elective procedure and insurance companies no not normally cover the cost. If the surgery is performed to correct a disfiguring birth defect, however, the expenses may be totally or partially paid by your insurance carrier. We generally perform the procedure in an outpatient surgery facility insurance.
