Whether you wish to refine or rejuvenate your facial contours, facial cosmetic surgery can help you meet your aesthetic goals at any age. At Charlottesville Plastic Surgery, we offer a large selection of facial procedures to help you look and feel your best.
A facelift is a common plastic surgery procedure that improves the upper, mid, and lower face with scars that hide within the hairline. It can dramatically improve a patient’s appearance for a more youthful look.
The neck is often an overlooked, but tell-tale sign of aging. A neck lift, often performed in conjunction with a facelift, or on its own, can greatly improve a patient’s appearance. Often correcting sagging skin, jawline, and stretching of neck muscles, it is a popular option among older men and women.
Blepharoplasty is a procedure that gives the upper and lower eyelids a more rejuvenated appearance, often by removing excess skin. Patients often describe themselves as “tired looking,” even though they feel great. Lower and upper lid surgery can give a fresh look with little to no downtime. Sometimes, it can be covered by insurance, so make sure to ask your plastic surgeon.
Rhinoplasty is one of the most popular facial plastic surgery procedures. The nose is a structure that most defines a person’s face. Often, patients feel their nose does not reflect their perceived image. Rhinoplasty can help reduce humps, projection, bulbous tips, and can improve nasal breathing.
A brow lift is one the best procedures to improve the “tired all the time” look. Often performed in conjunction with upper eyelid surgery, brow lifts can give patients a fresh new look. At Charlottesville Plastic Surgery, we offer minimally invasive, endoscopic brow lifts, so all scarring is hidden within the hairline.
Facial Contouring/Fat Grafting
Facial contouring has recently grown in popularity with the advent of facial fat grafting. In addition to facial implants for jaw and cheek contouring, we perform neck/jaw liposuction, and often, facial fat grafting. Facial fat grafting utilizes the patient’s own liposuctioned fat for a permanent, yet subtle improvement in facial features.
Surgical lip lift is a growing and popular procedure with little to no downtime. It gives the patient a fuller, more youthful upper lip and columella while hiding the scar within the nose.
Aesthetic ear surgery typically consists of the treatment of prominent ears in children and young adults. In older adults, skin cancer resection can often lead to noticeable defects that can be corrected by a plastic surgeon.
Skin Cancer Reconstruction
Mohs reconstruction is performed by a plastic surgeon with the goal of re-arranging tissue on the face and body. After Mohs surgery, the patient is often left with a large, full-thickness skin defect that needs repair. The goal of the plastic surgeon is to design a repair that hides scarring in the natural anatomic lines of the face.
Facial feminization encompasses a multitude of facial cosmetic procedures with the goal of creating a more feminine face. Procedures commonly included are frontal bone setback (to provide a softer, feminine brow), brow lift, hairline advancement, rhinoplasty, jaw contouring, facial fat grafting, and tracheal shave.
