How does the face age?

February 12th, 2014

Q: How does the face age?

A: The changes of the face we see due to aging begin as early as the 3rd and 4th decade of our lives. The skin begins to thin, gravity pulls the face downward, loss of facial volume gives wrinkles (like a deflated ballon), laxity of the deeper dacial fat, muscle and ligaments causes sagging and isualization of discolored, sun damaged skin. This results in wrinkled foreheads, falling brows, excess eyelif skin, and heavy bags under the eyes. You look tired and sad. The cheekbones flatten, the tip of the nose droops, facial and marionette lines of the mouth deepenand you lose the jawline with squaring of the face. The chin fades with neck laxity of the muscle and skin. Please call our office regarding treatment of early aging. 239-348-4357

Are you interested in an Eyelid Lift?

January 6th, 2014

Q: What is an eyelid lift?
A: An eyelid lift or blepharoplasty removes the excess skin, tightens the muscle and sculptures the underlying fat to a more youthful appearance. Many patients lose elacticity of the upper eyelid skin, causing droopy eyelids and obstruction of peripheral vision. This may require surgery of the eyelids to improve visual functions. A transconjunctival blepharoplasty hides the scar inside the eyelid and removes the fat from the baggy lower eyelid. Often overlying skin is tightened with a laser. For more information or to schedule a complementary consultation call  239-348-4357

Q & A: What is a MACS Facelift

October 3rd, 2013

Q: What is a MACS Facelift

A: A minimal access cranial suspension with smalr incisions around the ears. This procedure can lift the midface, lower face and neck with less operative time, less bruising and less downtime.

The deeper tissues are suspended with suture material in a vertical direction to prevent that lateral “windswept look of the past”, and can be done as an outpatient. The scars are much shorter

in length around the ears where excess skin is removed, and recovery is much qquicker that the tradional facelift. For more information on the MACS facelift, please call 239-348-4357

-I have decided to remove my implants after 15 years without replacement. I have opted not to have any further surgeries and know I will have smaller breasts. I have textured saline 330cc implants over the muscle with a capsular contracture on right breast. Knowing that I will need to take care of the excess skin and larger areola, wha…t type of breast lift would you recommend in my case?

ANSWER: Breast Lift

Removal of breast implants and tightening skin excess is a common surgery. More importantly is your implant lies above the muscle, directly under the glandular tissue of the breast. I would have to examine you to define how much breast tissue is under the nipple areola complex.

If there is very thin tissue, then you may want to remove the implants first and then 3-6months later see how much change occurs with reduction of the areola. The blood supply in thin breast tissue over an implant is fragile and may cause healing problems following a mastopexy at the same time of implant removal.

The circumareolar or vertical lollipop lift would be the surgery of choice.

Hands looking tired and old?
