At Gaines Plastic Surgery we offer a comprehensive list of face procedures aka facial rejuvenation to help restore the youthful, energetic appearance of our patients. The facial plastic surgery procedures we offer include brow lifts, otoplasty, and eyelid surgery / blepharoplasty. Our practice in Gainesville, Florida also offers facelift surgery as well as other facial procedures. Many of these procedures can be performed in combination with one another in order to achieve a comprehensive and natural-looking facial rejuvenation.
Many men may notice they have excess skin on their neck, sometimes referred to as a “wattle,” that gets in the way when they tie a tie. The direct necklift can be an option for men who want to address this loose skin on the neck without a full facelift. A better dermal blood supply due to beard hair follicles allows a finer scar, making this approach possible in men.
A number of different factors can cause a person’s face to develop noticeable wrinkles and lose its youthful appearance. Some of these factors include sun damage, stress, and the effects of gravity. A facelift, also referred to as a rhytidectomy, is performed to reverse the signs of aging by tightening facial muscles and removing excess fat and sagging tissue of the face.
Fat grafting uses the patient’s own tissue to augment areas of the face that appear hollow or sunken. The doctor will collect excess fat during liposuction, then purify and precisely inject it into the treatment area. The fat grafting process is very safe and can achieve natural-looking results.
As we age, our skin cells slough off at slower rates than when we were young. This can produce a dull appearance on the skin, and frequently significantly increased pore size. Dermabrasion uses a rotating, Dremel-like wheel to precisely remove the outer layers of facial skin to reveal fresh, youthful skin below.
Eyelid surgery, also referred to as blepharoplasty, is performed to treat sagging or droopy eyelids that can cause a person to look fatigued or older than he or she really is. Blepharoplasty can be performed on either the upper or lower eyelids and can be performed in combination with another procedure to ensure a comprehensive facial rejuvenation.
A brow lift, also referred to as a forehead lift, is performed to eliminate the appearance of deep lines and furrows on the forehead. In many instances, a brow lift is performed in combination with a facelift or eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) in order to achieve a balanced, natural-looking result to facial rejuvenation surgery.
Otoplasty is the clinical term for ear surgery. This procedure is most common among children to correct protruding ears, but you don’t have to be a child to have your ears pinned. Also, whether an earring tore through your earlobe, or a large gauge permanently stretched your earlobe, Dr. Gaines can perform otoplasty to make the necessary repairs.
