Facial Surgery Washington DC
Plastic surgery can help with many concerns related to your facial appearance. Most surgical procedures focus on reducing the signs of aging, while others are designed to enhance proportion of facial features like the nose, chin or ears. Read on to learn more about the facial surgery procedures we provide.
A forehead lift or browlift is a procedure that restores a more youthful, refreshed look to the area above the eyes. The procedure corrects drooping brows and improves the horizontal lines and furrows that can make a person appear angry, sad or tired.
A lip is a procedure that will reduce the distance between the base of the nose and the lip, increase the fullness of the upper lip, and reveal more visibility of the teeth.
A facelift is designed to reduce or improve signs of aging in the lower and middle areas of the face. This is achieved by removing excess facial fat, tightening underlying muscles, and redraping the skin of your face and neck.
Chin surgery, also known as genioplasty, is a surgical procedure to reshape the chin either by enhancement with an implant or reduction surgery on the bone.
Dermabrasion and dermaplaning help to refinish the skin’s top layers through a method of controlled surgical scraping. The treatments soften the sharp edges of surface irregularities, giving the skin a smoother appearance.
Ear surgery, or otoplasty, is usually done to set prominent ears back closer to the head or to reduce the size of large ears. The operation is usually done on children between the ages of six and fourteen.
Eyelid surgery is a procedure to remove fat, usually along with excess skin and muscle from the upper and lower eyelids. Eyelid surgery can correct drooping upper lids and puffy bags below your eyes – problems that make you look older and more tired than you feel, and may even interfere with your vision.
Rhinoplasty, or surgery to reshape the nose, is one of the most common of all plastic surgery procedures. Rhinoplasty can reduce or increase the size of your nose, change the shape of the tip or the bridge, narrow the span of the nostrils, or change the angle between your nose and your upper lip.
The neck lift is an operation that rejuvenates the lower third of the face.
Facial implants are used to improve and enhance facial contours. Frequently, these implants will help provide a more harmonious balance to your face and features so that you feel better about the way you look.
During fat-grafting, fat cells are extracted from your abdomen, thighs, buttocks or elsewhere and reinjected beneath the facial skin.
The combination of surgery and orthodontic treatment makes it possible to treat jaw abnormalities that previously could not have been corrected orthodontically (eg, long upper jaw and a bite in which the front teeth do not come together).
