About Facial Rejuvenation
Facelift surgery was performed originally for many years with the goal of reversing the signs of aging by tightening loose skin. Gone are the expressionless, wind-tunnel looks of the past. Modern techniques allow a natural and long-lasting result after facial rejuvenation because the current approach to facial rejuvenation involves repositioning facial structures that have sagged, and elevating the jowls to improve the jawline.
The eyes are often the first feature to show the signs of aging. Surgically creating youthful eyelids is termed a blepharoplasty. Although eyelid surgery targets a rather small area of the face, it can have a dramatic impact on facial appearance. As we age, eyelid skin loses its elasticity, resulting in excess drooping skin and the actual eyelid may descend and rest on the lashes. There are many factors that contribute to the aged appearance of the eyes such as squinting, sun damage, and smoking.
Even a small surgical adjustment made to your nose can result in a big improvement in overall facial harmony. Nose surgery or rhinoplasty involves more than merely making noses smaller. As your most prominent facial feature, a nose that is out of proportion or unbalanced with other features can negatively impact your self-image. Your nose needs to look natural and complement other facial features; it is a balancing of size, width, and angles.
An otoplasty offers patients with prominent ears the ability to reshape and reposition this important facial feature. While this procedure can be performed on children and teens, our surgeons recommend that patients seeking correction of prominent ears consider waiting until the age of ten to ensure that ears have fully developed. Adults also find great value in the otoplasty, as many have delayed having this procedure.
Brow lift surgery offers patients the ability to reshape the drooping found on the outside region of the eyebrow and to slightly elevate the inner eyebrow portion. While many patients are satisfied with the use of neurotoxins such as Botox® and Dysport® to control wrinkles and frowning of the inner brow, others seek a brow lift surgery to elevate the outside brow region.
Dermal fillers provide a variety of improvements instantly with no downtime. These quick injections can soften folds and wrinkles, replace facial volume on the cheeks and around the eyes, and sculpt the lips. We can combine filler treatments with BOTOX® Cosmetic injections for more comprehensive facial rejuvenation.
An FDA-cleared nonsurgical skin tightening treatment, Ultherapy is an excellent alternative to a neck lift or facelift for patients whose skin retains much of its elasticity. Women and men who want Ultherapy travel from throughout Oregon to our practice to get results that look natural.
