As we age, our skin steadily loses its natural elasticity. This is a result of diminished collagen levels. While collagen keeps our skin taut and hydrated when we’re young, by the time we’re 50 we’ve already lost 40% of our collagen production. With depleted collagen levels, our skin and facial tissue are more susceptible to gravity, sun exposure, and aging. However, with facial surgery, you can see a renewed, awakened look to your face that fights back against cosmetic detriments like wrinkles, fine lines, and an overall aged complexion. Whether through one or multiple methods, facial surgery restores your self-confidence in your appearance by fashioning your features to feel and look years younger.
A brow lift is a surgical solution to a slumped browline. Commonly, a sunken brow occurs in many people as they advance in years. The skin and muscles are critical in emoting our feelings become lax and loose, drooping over our eyes. For some people, this drooping brow can become so severe it obstructs their vision. For others, the slight drape of their brow can convey negative emotions that aren’t being internally experienced. People may perceive you to be older, more fatigued, or disheartened than you actually are. This can be detrimental to a person’s self-confidence. However, with a brow lift, Dr. Abramson can lift away worries as well as lifting your brow! By making a concealed hairline incision, he can pull the skin and underlying muscles up – fostering a more positive, youthful, resting expression.
Otherwise known as a blepharoplasty, eyelid surgery is performed to remove excess skin and orbital fat by making little incisions around the creases of the eyelids. A blepharoplasty improves skin laxity, eyelid bags, under-eye circles, wrinkles, and awakens an overall tired look.
By making minute, discrete incisions behind the jawline and around the ears, Dr. Abramson can tighten your facial skin as well as the underlying muscles to promote a refreshed, younger appearance. Known as a facelift, this procedure is perfect for patients who aspire to appear as young as they feel. Dr. Abramson uses a variety of approaches to lifting the face that go beyond a traditional facelift procedure. With the mini-facelift and the extended facelift as alternatives to the traditional facelift approach, Dr. Abramson believes one procedure does not fit all. Patients who elect to undergo a facelift can expect treatment for:
- Droopy corners of the mouth
- Sunken cheeks
- Frown lines
- Smile wrinkles
- Loose skin
To create vibrantly plump, fuller lips, Dr. Abramson expertly enlists the help of a suite of different fillers for lip augmentation. This minimally invasive, quick procedure requires a couple of simple injections to be made evenly around the lips. While round, well-padded lips are now popular in the media, they also promote a naturally healthier, younger appearance for the patient. By using fillers, Dr. Abramson is able to provide a swift procedure that requires little to no downtime at all. Some fillers deliver instant results while others need several days until results can be seen.
To correct what is pejoratively called a “turkey neck”, a neck lift remedies loose, hanging skin that dangles around the neck and chin. By making easily concealed incisions, Dr. Abramson can pull back the skin around the neck to a more taut, firm alignment, promoting a slimmer, sleeker profile and jawline. When combined with other facial surgeries, you can see a total transformation of your facial appearance.
Known as ear surgery, otoplasty is where ears with an undesirable shape or orientation are corrected and balanced. By making small incisions behind the ears, Dr. Abramson can pull back and adjust the ears’ orientation to a more desired placement. Ear shape and orientation may be the result of genetics or caused by aging. While this surgery is common for older people, younger patients have also requested otoplasty.
Colloquially coined as a nose job, a rhinoplasty operation can be requested for two reasons: function or cosmetic. A functional rhinoplasty works to encourage better airflow through the nasal passageways while a cosmetic rhinoplasty focuses on the shape, orientation, and angling of the nose itself. Either through an open or closed procedure, scarring from this procedure is virtually unnoticeable to the naked eye. Whether it’s correcting the bridge, the width, the angle of the tip, or a deviated septum, a rhinoplasty is perfect for anyone who is unhappy with the shape and characteristics of their nose.
The dreaded double chin can be easily targeted with chin liposuction. By making a few discreet incisions, Dr. Abramson can trim away the fat that conceals your chin. By doing so, your jawline can become more contoured and your face can emerge looking sleeker, slimmer, and more sculpted.
Facial Fat Transfer
Also called fat grafting, a facial fat transfer increases volume to the face by adding fat cells from other parts of the body to the diminished features around the face. This may include the jawline, lips, or cheeks. By taking fat away from other places around your body, Dr. Abramson can give your face a fuller, less hollow look. With these new youthful contours, a facial fat transfer can make you appear years younger!
To lift the midfacial region, Dr. Abramson recommends a Silhouette InstaLift. This procedure is also known as the “Non-Surgical Facelift”. While a traditional facelift addresses the lower part of the face, a Silhouette InstaLift relieves the loose facial skin around the middle third of the face. This is the perfect solution for patients looking to diminish their laugh lines and rejuvenate their appearance.
There are characteristics that constitute an ideal candidate for facial surgery. First, you must already lead an active lifestyle while maintaining a healthy, stable weight. Next, it is important that you are a non-smoker or at least able to quit smoking a few weeks prior to your procedure and for the entire duration of your recovery. Finally, some patients’ recoveries will last longer than others, so it is important to be aware that downtime may be required for your facial surgery procedure.
