When some people hear the words facial plastic surgeon, they may immediately think that the doctor only offers facelifts.
A facial plastic surgeon can do so much more to enhance the natural beauty of your face. While facelifts are one service that a plastic surgeon can offer, there are many other procedures that may be right for you.
Let’s take a look.
Eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty as it’s also called is one procedure that can be done to give your face a refreshed look. As we get older it’s so secret that our skin begins to sag, even skin around the eyes. This can result in a constantly tired look even when you’ve got plenty of rest.
When you visit a facial plastic surgeon in Denver, such as Dr. Keith Ladner, he can educate you about how eyelid surgery can make your face look revived and even younger in the process. The surgery can be done to the upper or lower eyelids. During a consultation, Dr. Ladner can advise you as to which type of eyelid surgery would best benefit you.
Browlift & Forehead Lift
The eyelids are not the only part of your face that can alter your appearance. The skin around your eyebrows can also cause you to look older than your age. As we age the position of our eyebrows may drop, leading to excess skin around the eyes which can also result in a tired look.
The goal of a browlift and forehead lift is to not only make the area around the eye smoother but to also eliminate the wrinkles that can form across our forehead and the vertical lines between our eyes.
Otoplasty is a surgery that is done to pin back protruding ears. As a facial plastic surgeon in Colorado Springs, Dr. Ladner has performed many otoplasties on patients who were self-conscious about the appearance of their ears. Patients who undergo an otoplasty can expect ears that are more symmetrical.
For some people, the area around their chin makes them uncomfortable because of excess skin that leads to an undefined look. Chin augmentation can be done with other procedures like rhinoplasties or facelifts, or on its own. Your plastic surgeon will give a recommendation as to which is best if you’re considering a chin augmentation. At times, chin augmentation is recommended to complement other procedures, such as rhinoplasties.
Facelifts & Neck lifts
For many of us, the aging process brings sagging skin and wrinkles that can make us appear older than our age. If you’re looking for a more youthful look, then a facelift or neck lift may be for you.
A facelift works to tighten the skin of the entire face while a neck lift specifically focuses on the skin of the neck. Some people experience a good amount of sagging skin around their neck that they would like to eliminate. During a neck lift procedure, the skin along the jawline and neck is tightened to give the patient a refreshed look while getting rid of the sagging skin.
In both procedures, incisions are made and tailored to the patient so that they are in natural creases where they cannot be seen. In facelifts, the incisions are made in front of and behind the ear, while neck lifts require a small incision beneath the chin.
While both facelifts and neck lifts will make you look younger, the idea is to make this happen as naturally as possible. As a facial plastic surgeon in Colorado Springs, Dr. Ladner will explain all of the elements of both facelifts and neck lifts so that you can decide which is right for you. Some people choose to focus only on the neck area, while others look to enhance their entire face.
Dr. Ladner is highly experienced in all of these facial plastic surgery procedures and can provide you with before and after photos so that you can see the results for yourself.
