Face Procedures Connecticut
Plastic surgery can help with many concerns related to your facial appearance. Most surgical procedures focus on reducing the signs of aging, while others are designed to enhance proportion of facial features like the nose, chin or ears. Read on to learn more about the facial surgery procedures we provide.
A forehead lift or browlift is a procedure that restores a more youthful, refreshed look to the area above the eyes. The procedure corrects drooping brows and improves the horizontal lines and furrows that can make a person appear angry, sad or tired.
Chin surgery, also known as mentoplasty, is a surgical procedure to reshape the chin either by enhancement with an implant or reduction surgery on the bone.
A facelift (technically known as rhytidectomy) is designed to reduce or improve signs of aging in the lower and middle areas of the face. This is achieved by removing excess facial fat, tightening underlying muscles, and redraping the skin of your face and neck.
Ear surgery, or otoplasty, is usually done to set prominent ears back closer to the head or to reduce the size of large ears. The operation is usually done on children between the ages of four and 14.
Eyelid surgery (technically called blepharoplasty) is a procedure to remove fat–usually along with excess skin and muscle from the upper and lower eyelids. Eyelid surgery can correct drooping upper lids and puffy bags below your eyes – features that make you look older and more tired than you feel, and may even interfere with your vision.
Facial implants are used to improve and enhance facial contours. Frequently used for the cheeks or chin, these implants will help provide a more harmonious balance to your face and features so that you feel better about the way you look.
Fat-grafting is also known as autologous fat transplantation or micro-lipoinjection. During facial fat grafting, fat cells are extracted from your abdomen, thighs, buttocks or elsewhere and reinjected beneath the facial skin. Fat can fill in sunken cheeks or lines between the nose and mouth, correct skin depressions, minimize forehead wrinkles or enhance the lips.
