Contoura Facial Plastic Surgery Face Procedures
Brow lift surgery, also referred to as a forehead lift, is a surgical procedure performed at Contoura Facial Plastic Surgery to reduce signs of aging in the forehead area. The goal of a brow lift is to remove or reduce deep horizontal creases across the forehead and bridge of the nose, as well as the frown lines between the eyebrows. A brow lift also rejuvenates the face above the eyes to restore a more refreshed appearance by removing excess sagging skin on the forehead.
Cheek & Chin Implants
Chin surgery, technically called mentoplasty, is a surgical face procedure performed to reshape the chin by either augmenting or reducing it. With the use of Chin implants Dr. Garcia can improve a person’s profile by making a “weak” chin look stronger. Chin reduction can improve a person’s profile, but requires to remove bone and/or tissue and muscle to do so.
Contoura Fat Transfer
Dr. Roberto Garcia has performed thousands of Contoura Fat Transfer procedures. The Contoura Fat Transfer procedure improves the effects of facial aging due to volume loss. The fat transfer surgery is most effective for correcting the following; volume loss to the upper eyelids, flattened cheeks, sagging jowl appearance, nosolabial lines, marionette lines, and hollowing temples.
Contoura LIFT® is a minimally invasive procedure performed in the office to elevate the cheeks and give the lower face a more youthful appearance. As the face ages, the muscles and tissues sag downward; volume is lost; and the jowls become more prominent. The Contoura LIFT® repositions the droopy cheek tissue and restores a youthful contour of the cheeks. The procedure will also soften the fold between the nose and cheek.
Eyelid surgery, also called blepharoplasty, is a facial plastic surgery procedure Dr. Roberto Garcia performs to improve the appearance of the eyelids. The surgery tightens the eyelid muscles and tissue, as well as removing excess fat and skin. Types of eyelid surgery available at Contoura Facial Plastic Surgery include upper blepharoplasty, lower blepharoplasty, or both. Eyelid surgery can rejuvenate the area surrounding your eyes, whether you want to improve your appearance or are experiencing functional problems with your eyelids.
As you age, gravity and sun exposure inevitably takes its toll on the face, neck, and brow. Deep creases that run from each side of the nose to the corners of the mouth appear (nasolabial lines); the jawline slackens (creating jowls); and the neck develops loose folds and fat deposits. With facelift surgery these signs of aging can be improved.
Facial Liposuction is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that uses a thin, hollow tube called a cannula to remove localized areas of facial fat. The cannula is inserted through extremely small incisions, and then moved back and forth to loosen excess fat, which is suctioned out using a vacuum or a cannula-attached syringe. Treated areas look slimmer and more contoured, leading to a more slim appearance to the lower face. If the texture to the neck or jawline skin are healthy and strong, then liposuction can be performed. The looser the skin of these areas prior to liposuction, the higher the risk to having more loose skin after the procedure.
A Mini Facelift counteracts these signs of aging by tightening muscle, removing fat and trimming excess skin, giving the face a fresher, more youthful look.
A Neck lift counteracts signs of aging by tightening muscle, removing fat, trimming excess skin, thereby giving the neck region a fresher, more youthful look. The results are dramatic and long lasting.
Otoplasty, also referred to as ear surgery or ear pinning, is a facial plastic surgery procedure Dr. Roberto Garcia performs to improve the appearance of the ears. Ear surgery does not have affect hearing, and provides significant benefits to anyone who is teased about ear size and/or shape, has had a serious ear injury, or simply wants to improve his or her appearance. In most cases, Otoplasty is performed to set unusually protruding ears closer to the head (ear pinning) or to reduce the size of abnormally large ears. Additional benefits of Otoplasty may also include repairing large/stretched or torn earlobes, cauliflower ear, microtia, lop ear, or earlobes with large creases or wrinkles.
A Rhinoplasty can reshape, reduce or augment a patient’s nose for cosmetic, as well as functional purposes. Nose surgery can also correct a birth defect, repair an injury, improve breathing or simply improve a patient’s appearance.
Scars are visible signs that remain after a wound has healed. Scar revision is surgery to improve or reduce the appearance of scars. It is meant to minimize the scar so that it is more consistent with the skin’s tone and texture. Along with the obvious cosmetic and functional damage a scar can have, it can also have a significant psychological impact on a patient. Whether the scar is caused from trauma or from removal of lesions from the face like skin cancer, reconstruction can many times pose a significant challenge.
