Revision Facelift to Correct Problems from a previous FaceLift or to “Freshen” an older traditional FaceLift

shutterstock_92984722Because time and facial aging does not stop after you get a facelift procedure, I get many, many requests for facelift “do-overs” correctly called Revision FaceLifts. There are many reasons patients become dissatisfied with their previous facelift and these distortions often cause self consciousness.  Be it the poor technique chosen, the surgeon’s lack of experience and skills, trauma or illness experienced by the patients, age related changes, no matter the reason, a Revision FaceLift can correct the sagging, aging features and restore a refreshed youthful appearance once again.

Revision FaceLifts are more difficult than the primary surgery due to scar tissue, altered anatomical positions and other unknown factors from the previous surgery that we may have to deal with.  When patients come to me asking for correction of a past facelift, it’s always helpful if they bring the operative report from the primary surgery.  This can give a baseline of information about the exact procedures that were performed and techniques used to do so.

Trusting Your Face to to a Qualified Facial Plastic Surgeon is critical!  Revision FaceLifts are a very complex surgery requiring maximum training and the expertise and skills of someone who has performed many, many facelifts and who does them regularly.  Also, being able to match the right surgery to your specific needs is imperative!  I know.  I see the unhappy results from the hands of unqualified physicians and the despair it causes those wearing the face with less than desirable results.  So, don’t be fooled by the mass advertising today being used to brand certain kinds of facelifts as the latest and greatest…Please understand that “one surgery/procedure does not fit all faces.”

Revision FaceLift Overview:  After matching the right facelift and technique to your specific needs, I customize your facelift to match your desired outcomes, goals and dreams.  The surgery will be designed to tighten and lift muscles, remove excess skin, remove and/or distribute and sculpt fat to replace volume and restore curves for a truly natural looking outcome.  What to expect after your facelift surgery:  swelling, bruising, numbness and some discomfort is normal and to be expected for several days. Discomfort is easily managed with oral pain medication.  Every day, these issues resolve a little more until one day, you forget about them.   Surgery is performed in a state of the art out patient surgery center that is fully accredited and equipped with all the necessary technologies to perform all surgeries and to handle any situation.

Rhinoplasty Surgery…Nose/Nasal Reshaping

There are a host of reasons people come to me for Rhinoplasty (Nose) surgery. These include, but are not limited to, injuries…sports, accidents etc., illness or disease that has changed the shape and functioning of the nose,…or people simply want the nose of their dreams.  Whatever the reason, I am specially trained in all cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries of the nose and face and have performed a host of nose surgeries.

Since, I’ve blogged quite a bit on “facial” procedures, I think it’s important to educate you on surgeries of the nose because…

Rhinoplasty is one of the most elegant and complex surgeries being performed today. People of all ethnicities, genders and ages/stages in life decide to have rhinoplasty surgery for one or more reasons.

Rhinoplasty…Nose surgery… is done for either cosmetic or functional reasons and sometimes for both reasons.  Nose reshaping can reduce or increase the overall size of your nose…change the angle between the nose and upper lip…remove a hump…narrow the nostrils span…reshape the tip or the bridge of your nose….and more.

Sports injuries of the nose are common and usually result in a deviated septum…this hinders your ability to breathe and changes the facial landscape…often dramatically. Sometimes a nose becomes distorted from disease or illness…or an accident…or even previous nose surgery at the hands of an unqualified professional.  Some people were born with misshapen noses….other people watch their noses changes size and shape as part of normal aging.

The concerns and reasons are many and varied. However, I have been helping people with their nose problems for decades now….and can safely, effectively and skillfully improve the appearance of a nose.

HERE’S A SHORT LIST OF THE BENEFITS OF RHINOPLASTY SURGERY:

  • Rhinoplasty is a delicate surgery…a surgery of illusion & balance
  • The nose is the most focal point of the face & adds or subtracts from facial balance
  • Over 1/2 million people of all ethnicities, ages, genders have nose surgery
  • Seniors often want their noses restored to a more youthful size & shape
  • Rhinoplasty restores function to an injured nose (deviated septum etc.)
  • Rhinoplasty can change the size, shape & or angle of the nose
  • Rhinoplasty corrects damage from previous nasal procedures
  • One “nose job” does not fit all faces…I skillfully create a nose that fits your face without altering ethnic characteristics…

That’s a good start or overview on Rhinoplasty.  I use the most advanced techniques and technology to achieve the desired results and the enhance youthfulness and natural beauty.   Next time I’ll get into FAQ’s…and procedure overview.

Until then, stay well and watch out for “nose jobs.”
