The blepharoplasty, or more often referred to as an eyelid lift, is a surgical procedure designed to refresh and renew the appearance by eliminating bagging, drooping skin from the upper and lower lids. The blepharoplasty can eliminate bulging, dark ‘bags’ under the eyes, caused by lax, bulging fat pads. Both upper and lower eyelids can be addressed at one time, or either can be improved on their own, providing a more youthful, awake look.
The Browlift, or more often referred to as a Forehead Lift, is a surgical technique created to rejuvenate the appearance by lifting a sagging brow line that comes with normal aging. During the Browlift, unwanted skin and muscle can be eliminated, while remaining tissues are lifted taut and smooth. Once the heavy, drooping tissue is raised along the brows, a refreshed, happy look can be restored.
Full cheeks, sometimes referred to as ‘chipmunk cheeks’ or a ‘baby face’, may be cute as a kid, but are not always desirable as an adult. A slimmer, more sculpted appearance can be obtained through the buccal fat removal. This surgical procedure eliminates the targeted excess fatty tissue or fat pad of the lower face. The result is a slender chiseled cheek and jawline.
Sculpted cheeks can create a youthful, healthy appearance. The cheek augmentation procedure surgically enhances facial contours using a silicone implant. This procedure will bring out the facial curvature, adding depth and prominence to the cheeks. Cheek augmentation can restore a sculpted balance to the facial features. Additionally, volume can be temporarily added to the cheeks without surgery, using dermal fillers to enhance facial volume.
Men and women with a slight, underdeveloped chin can be seen as meek and submissive, while a prominent chin may look harsh or overbearing. The chin augmentation is a surgical procedure designed to create an aesthetically pleasing chin; the procedure can be custom tailored to the individual patient. Through the surgical addition of a silicone implant, or the reduction of excess bone and tissue, the chin augmentation can bring balance and proportion to the existing facial features. A chin augmentation can be performed alone, or paired with other procedures such as the rhinoplasty or cheek augmentation, for optimal benefits.
Ear Pinning (Otoplasty)
Also known as Otoplasty, ear pinning is a surgical procedure designed to improve the look of large, protruding, or poorly formed ears. The technique is performed on adults, as well as children as young as five. Ear pinning can involve removing excess tissue, bringing the ears closer to head, or recreating an organic shape to the ears.
A Rhytidectomy, more commonly referred to as a facelift, is a long-trusted surgical procedure for restoring a youthful appearance. Through very small incisions, placed within the hairline, sagging tissues can be lifted to smooth the skin. Excess muscle and skin are excised, while remaining tissues are meticulously positioned for permanent results. The facelift can improve lax facial skin, unsightly jowls, and crinkled neck tissues. A variety of facelift techniques are available, based on the needs of the specific patient. Both men and women can enjoy a renewed, youthful appearance with a facelift.
Facial volume can begin to deplete with age, leaving the appearance hollow, unhappy, and even unhealthy. Fat grafting will effectively replace lost facial volume along the cheeks, under the eyes, and across the jaw. Excess body fat is donated from another area of the body, such as the thighs or buttocks, then treated and injected into the target location. Fat grafting can restore natural, rejuvenated contours to the face, taking years off of the appearance.
The neck can quickly give away age, no matter how much time or effort is placed on skincare. Weight loss, genetics, and the normal aging process will eventually cause sagging and thinning skin under the chin, across the neck, and down along the upper chest. The neck’s Platysma bands can also become lax, further worsening drooping tissue. A neck lift is a surgical procedure designed to eliminate excess skin under the chin, tightening the remaining muscles and tissues for a more youthful neckline.
Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure designed to improve the shape and function of the nose. Sometimes referred to as a nose job, a rhinoplasty can reduce a nasal hump, straighten the bridge, and make the nostrils smaller. The procedure will make the nose more proportionate with the other features, creating a facial balance for a more harmonious and pleasant appearance.
Not everyone looking to improve the appearance of their nose is ready for the expense, recovery, and cost of a surgical rhinoplasty procedure. Although traditional surgery can provide excellent results for those looking to achieve a dramatic change, a nonsurgical rhinoplasty is a cost effective option that can offers mild to moderate improvements, without any downtime. Through the meticulous placement of innovative soft tissue fillers, Dr. Paul Vitenas can temporarily contour the nose, making it more shapely and aesthetically pleasing, thus significantly improving the appearance. The nonsurgical rhinoplasty, from Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery, has the ability to reshape the nasal bridge, smooth bumps, and hide imperfections, ensuring the nose appears straighter and better balanced with surrounding features.
