Cosmetic Surgery for the Face
Blepharoplasty, Rhinoplasty, Facelift, and Other Facial Plastic Surgeries
Facial plastic surgery is one of the most effective ways to change your appearance dramatically. Dr. Robert Winslow uses the safest, most effective procedures available for treating wrinkles and excess skin; reshaping the nose, ears, and lips; and addressing many other problem areas in order to highlight and enhance his patients’ natural beauty. At AweNatural Plastic Surgery Dr. Winslow’s expertise with blepharoplasty, rhinoplasty, facelift, and other advanced surgeries makes stunning results possible.
The facelift is a popular procedure designed to tighten facial skin – smoothing wrinkles, removing excess skin folds, and eliminating other signs of aging in order to produce a more youthful look. When performed by a talented surgeon such as Dr. Winslow, facelift surgery can dramatically improve the appearance and self-esteem of many cosmetic surgery patients.
The facelift procedure is custom-tailored to the individual patient’s unique bone and muscle structure, face shape, skin condition, and personal aesthetic goals. Dr. Winslow is able not only to tighten and lift the skin, but also to reposition underlying muscles and tissue, producing longer-lasting, more natural facelift results.
During the facelift procedure, Dr. Winslow makes an incision behind the hairline at the temples, after which he separates the skin from the underlying structures in order to reposition muscles and remove unneeded tissue. Depending on the needs of the patient, discreet incisions in natural creases around the ears might also be required. Excess skin can be trimmed away, and the skin will ultimately be repositioned and stitched into place for healing.
A facelift can typically be performed on an outpatient basis under either general or local anesthesia. Recovery may take as little as one week or as many as several, depending on the patient.
Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is relatively simple but extremely effective. Over time, skin around the eyes may sag and stretch, making a person appear fatigued or aged. By removing sagging skin and tissue from this area, Dr. Winslow can entirely rejuvenate a patient’s appearance, making him or her appear years younger. To obtain an even more thorough improvement, some Folsom and Sacramento-area patients choose to combine blepharoplasty with a facelift or with injectables such as Restylane®.
For many patients, blepharoplasty offers both aesthetic and functional benefits. When tissue around the eyes droops far enough, it may obscure peripheral vision, potentially making it difficult to observe dangers such as speeding cars. Removing this tissue can restore the patient’s vision while making the eyes appear more open, alert, and youthful.
There are different procedures available for the upper and lower eyelids. The goal of upper eyelid surgery is to remove excess skin and cause the eye’s fold to become more clearly defined. When performing lower eyelid surgery, Dr. Winslow aims to remove excess skin and fat deposits that cause eye bags.
Recovering from blepharoplasty typically takes several weeks, time during which patients may experience some swelling, soreness, or dry eyes. Within a few weeks, however, patients will begin noticing the impressively realistic results that are the signature of AweNatural Plastic Surgery.
The brow lift procedure is something like a facelift, but is more localized and less invasive. Patients who want to improve hooded brows, drooping around the eyes, and deep frown lines can enjoy tremendous success with a brow lift from Dr. Winslow. Skin and tissue along the brow are lifted and tightened through an incision made along the hairline, much as in a facelift, but the incision is typically smaller and the patient benefits from a shorter recovery time as a result.
Neck lift surgery is popular and is often used in combination with liposuction or other post-bariatric surgery procedures after significant weight loss. The neck lift is a great way to create more graceful neck contours for patients whose neck skin has drooped or sagged because of sun damage, weight loss, or some other factor.
Lip augmentation with implants allows patients at AweNatural Plastic Surgery to obtain a fuller, more attractive shape for the mouth and lips. Lip implants are placed through incisions made inside the mouth, leaving no external scarring visible, and they offer realistic, permanent lip augmentation.
