Your facial appearance has a big impact on how people view you, and first impressions are formed in just seconds. Facial procedures are designed to enhance, rejuvenate, and improve your overall facial appearance so you can feel comfortable and confident projecting the best version of yourself. Whether you desire to correct wrinkles, sagging tissues, fatigued eyelids, a crooked or large nose, or facial volume loss, there is a face and/or neck procedure to suit your individual needs.
A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, corrects horizontal wrinkles across the forehead, furrows between the brows, and a drooping brow that may be hooding the upper eyelids. The tissues and muscles of the forehead are adjusted, and excess skin is removed to lift the brows, smooth the skin, and create a more alert and youthful appearance.
A weak chin often creates facial features that appear disproportionate and can detract from your profile. A deficient chin can give the illusion of making the nose look more prominent than it really is. Chin implant surgery, also known as mentoplasty, augments the chin to balance your facial features and create a more attractive profile. The implants come in a variety of shapes and sizes, which allows Dr. Schlechter to choose an implant that will perfectly match your goals and facial structure.
Over time, the earlobes can become stretched, elongated, and even torn. This is often the result of regular wear of heavy earrings or gauged earlobe piercings. Earlobe repair surgery can correct aesthetic issues with the earlobes to restore a natural, attractive appearance. The technique used will depend on the type of correction needed.
Eyelid surgery can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both to improve wrinkles, sagging tissues, and puffiness that may create a constantly fatigued or aged eye appearance. Upper eyelid surgery can also correct impaired vision due to drooping eyelid tissues that hang over the eye. Displaced fat and excess skin are removed to achieve a rejuvenated and younger-looking appearance around the eyes.
A facelift eliminates sagging tissues and loose skin in the mid and lower face for a rejuvenated, natural facial appearance. Creases below the lower eyelids, wrinkles around the mouth, displaced fat, and sagging jowls are corrected as the underlying tissues are adjusted and tightened and excess skin is removed.
As you age, your tissues tend to lose volume as the structural support under your skin becomes thin, which leads to wrinkles, fine lines, and hollows in many areas of the face. Fat transfer utilizes your own fat to add volume to your desired areas while also creating more slender body contours. Liposuction removes unwanted fat from trouble areas of the body, and the fat is purified and then injected into the treatment areas to rejuvenate your appearance.Learn more about Fat Transfer
PrecisionTx™ is a minimally invasive procedure that offers results comparable to a traditional neck lift but without the major surgery. A fiber optic cable is inserted beneath the skin to deliver laser energy to the tissues, which heats and tightens the dermal layer of skin and stimulates the production of collagen. Some improvement will be immediately noticeable, and results will continue to improve for up to six months.
A neck lift corrects loose, sagging tissue and displaced fat in the neck and along the jawline that may create a “turkey wattle,” “banding,” “double chin,” or jowls. The muscles are tightened, underlying tissues are adjusted, and excess skin and fat are removed to produce a smooth, youthful neck
Nose surgery, also known as rhinoplasty, improves the appearance and function of the nose by correcting nasal deformities and breathing impairments due to structural defects in the nose. This procedure can improve the size, shape, angle, tip, nostrils, bridge, and internal blockages of the nose. The underlying structures of the nose are reshaped to create a nose with improved airflow that is in better harmony with the rest of the face.
Rhinoplasty revision is a secondary procedure performed to correct unsatisfactory results from a primary rhinoplasty. Whether the result of an unskilled surgeon or improper healing, problems such as excess scar tissue, dips and bumps in the nose, and other cosmetic and functional issues can be corrected. Dr. Schlechter is highly experienced with rhinoplasty revision and has the skills necessary to deal with the complex issues involved in achieving more desirable and attractive results.
While plastic surgery was previously dominated by female patients, the number of male patients continues to grow significantly each year. Men often choose facial plastic surgery procedures to gain a competitive advantage in the job market, to look more attractive for the dating world, or to improve their confidence and enhance many areas of their lives. Common procedures men undergo include brow lift surgery, eyelid surgery, chin implant surgery, facelift surgery, rhinoplasty, and hair transplant surgery.
