Our Clevens Face and Body Specialists is proud to offer the following facial procedures to anyone looking to improve their facial appearance.
The eyelid procedure repairs sagging eyelids, under-eye bags, and wrinkles. Excess skin around the eyes can begin to droop and impair your vision. During a blepharoplasty, the surgeon makes a tiny incision that will allow him to tighten the muscles and tendons of the eyelids before removing and repositioning excess skin and displaced fatty tissue.
A brow lift procedure tightens the underlying muscles of the forehead and removes excess skin. Forehead lines, furrows between the brows, and drooping eyebrows are corrected to provide you with an overall rejuvenated appearance. Depending on the severity of forehead laxity and brow droop, the surgeon will perform either an endoscopic, mid-brow temporal trichophytic, or a classic eyebrow lift.
Chin implants can reshape and enhance your chin projection by changing the structure of your face. During the procedure, incisions are made inside the mouth or under the chin, and then the implant is placed. Chin augmentation can create more balanced and attractive facial contours.
Dimpleplasty can benefit someone trying to create or restore their dimples. During the operation, small incisions are made inside the mouth to create the dimples. The procedure takes about 30 minutes to complete. Within a few days, you will be able to return to your regular activities and enjoy your results.
Earlobe repair is a cosmetic surgery that restores a natural shape and size to earlobes that have been damaged or stretched. Whether you purposely stretched out your earlobes with gauge earrings, your lobes stretched unintentionally after years of wearing heavy earrings, or an accident tore your earlobes, this minimally invasive procedure can address overly loose, torn earlobe tissue.
A facelift is a procedure that addresses wrinkles and sagging facial tissues. This cosmetic procedure can lift and smooth the cheeks, nasolabial folds, jawline, jowls, chin, and neck. A facelift will rejuvenate your face by tightening the underlying tissues and removing any loose skin.
Facial feminization is a procedure that modifies your facial features to look more womanly. This cosmetic procedure is common among transgender women (MTF transwomen), but anyone can undergo this surgery if they want to gain more feminine features. Several procedures can be selected based on your unique needs, such as a facelift, trach shave, nasal contouring, neck lift, brow lift, eyelid surgery, and jawline contouring.
Whether you want to improve lines and wrinkles around the mouth, enhance the size of naturally small or deflated lips, or correct downturned lips, a lip lift can give you the full, youthful lips you desire. You should consult with your PAC/RN to discuss what lip lift and/or injectable techniques will work best to achieve the best results for you.
Mohs surgery is a skin cancer treatment that removes cancerous cells while preserving as much healthy tissue as possible. Your plastic surgeon will work beside a dermatopathologist to evaluate each layer of your skin and ensure all cancerous tissue is removed. Reconstruction techniques are used to create a natural aesthetic in the treated area.
A neck lift improves signs of aging in the jawline and neck to restore a youthful appearance. The procedure will remove a “double chin,” “wattle,” and “turkey neck.” Dr. Clevens created the laser-assisted Weekend Neck Lift to remove fat from the neck and chin with minimal incisions and a quick recovery so you can get back to your busy life as soon as possible.
Otoplasty improves the shape, size, and position of protruding ears. This procedure can treat birth defects or ears that have been damaged by injury. There are two types of ear surgery procedures: traditional otoplasty and incisionless otoplasty, although both techniques result in incisions that are hidden.
Rhinoplasty, also known as a nose job, improves the size and proportion of your nose. In addition to correcting aesthetic concerns about the bridge of your nose (a nasal hump or indentation), the projection of the tip, or a crooked nose, the procedure can also improve breathing and reduce congestion. For patients who wish to avoid surgery, there is a non-surgical option called a liquid rhinoplasty that lets you try out the results of rhinoplasty before you fully commit. The technique for your procedure will be decided by your surgeon based on your concerns and goals.
S-lift facelift surgery can provide a more youthful chin, jawline, and neckline by lifting and repositioning facial fat and muscles. S-lift surgery improves the lower two-thirds of the face and neck but does not raise the cheeks or address nasolabial folds (smile lines) as a traditional facelift would.
Men undergo plastic surgery to restore youthful, masculine contours. Some of the most common procedures are eyelid surgery, facelifts, rhinoplasty, and the weekend neck lift. Undergoing plastic surgery can help men reverse the signs of aging.
You should take your time when considering what specific facial features and concerns you would like to correct or enhance. It is also essential to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon to help you decide on the correct procedure(s) to achieve the results you want.
Recovery time varies depending on what facial procedure is chosen, but most patients plan to take at least one week off work for a surgical procedure. Minimally invasive and non-surgical procedures may not require any downtime, and Dr. Clevens can go over the techniques he offers for a faster recovery.
The entire healing process will vary depending on the facial procedure you undergo; some procedures may provide results within weeks, but some may take up to a year for the final results to be apparent due to residual swelling. After any surgery, you should generally rest and eat light, nutritious food to help your body heal. Listening to your surgeon about what to do during the healing process is essential since they will be able to provide you more specific instructions based on your unique needs and the procedure you undergo.
The risks of these procedures vary, but they are similar to any other surgery. Your surgeon should be able to explain all of the potential complications of the surgery you wish to undergo.
