A facelift delivers youthful beautification to the mid and lower half of the face and the neck. Our facelifts impart correction to all layers of the soft tissue of the face – as well as the skin. The “high-SMAS facelift” involves restoration of the cheek fat pad, so that skin can be re-draped and precisely trimmed – leaving a younger, healthier, and natural-looking appearance.
Incision sites are well-hidden around the ear and hairline, and are closed meticulously with a microscope in our practice. Facelifts vary in their complexity: less invasive ones with quick recovery or more invasive ones with more dramatic rejuvenating effects. Facelift packages include the use of a variety of skin resurfacing lasers, and are often combined with various neck-smoothing procedures and/or liposculpting.
The brow and forehead areas are often the first to show the effects of aging: frown lines, wrinkles, and heaviness around the eyebrows and eyelids. A brow lift is an effective method to correct a tired, angry, or sad appearance of the eyelid area and upper face. Clients often don’t initially realize the impact that a sagging brow has on one’s appearance. Oftentimes, “droopy eyelids” are largely the result of a “droopy brow.” A balanced facial rejuvenation often requires attending to the forehead and brow with a simple brow lift. Incisions are hidden just inside the hairline, so that the hairline can be lowered if desired, and can provide permanent relaxation to some of the muscles that cause frown lines and horizontal forehead lines. Our brow lift packages employ state-of-the-art lasers to rejuvenate forehead and eyelid skin, and are regularly featured in national beauty magazines.
Your eyes make you uniquely you. Our eyes convey emotion and expression, and are the first place others focus when they connect with us. Extra folds of skin, bags, or fullness of our eyelids – whether hereditary or part of aging – inhibit our eyes’ expressiveness, make us appear older or tired, and may even hinder vision. Upper blepharoplasty restores smoothness and youthfulness to the upper eyelids, while lower blepharoplasty removes bags and wrinkly skin below.
Most people seeking rhinoplasty have concerns that the nose they have is not right for them. They don’t like, for instance, the hump on their nose, or that the nose is crooked, or that the tip is misshapen or boxy or sharp. Rhinoplasty addresses these aesthetic concerns and can also simultaneously alleviate problems of airway obstruction inside the nose. Recovery is usually only a week or two.
Liposculpting for the Face, Neck, Tummy, Thighs, Love Handles, Back …
Liposculpting can remove a “double chin,” shape a more distinct jawline, or create a more slender abdomen, shapelier thighs, or smoother back. Tiny incisions are made in discreet, hidden skin folds. Excess fat is carefully sculpted and removed using tiny, suction devices called cannulas. If desired, living fat can then be transferred to other body areas (autologous fat transfers) to provide youthful volume where it is desired, such as upper cheeks, around the eyes and temples, breasts, and butt.
“Laser lipo” uses laser-tipped cannulas to “melt away” unwanted fat. The advantage of laser lipolysis is that, while it destroys targeted fat cells, it also tightens the dermis layer of the skin. It takes longer to perform and costs a bit more, but the recovery is quicker, and the results are superior.
Skin cancers on the face represent challenging surgical problems. Certainly, a primary objective is to remove the entire cancer, but it is also paramount that the skin be put back together in such a way that deformity and functional impairment is avoided or at least minimized.
At Fine Arts Skin & Laser, we use powerful binocular microscopy from start to finish, ensuring that our work is of the highest quality both in 1) removing all the cancer the first time, as well as 2) artistically restoring form and function in the most natural-looking way possible.
We perform both the skin cancer removal and the reconstruction in the same visit, and can accomplish 99% of these procedures in our state-of-the-art office surgical suites – providing the greatest patient comfort and convenience. We take great pride in exceptionally high initial rates of complete tumor removal with outstanding functional and cosmetic preservation.
We perform skin cancer removal on any part of the body. We also provide expert, microscope-assisted evaluation of any suspicious skin changes you might have.
