Facial rejuvenation encompasses an array of surgical techniques which address the aging process of the brow, eyelids, face, jowls, chin and neck. Even the earlobes and lips can be rejuvenated. Dr. Smith has many different techniques available for each part of the face depending on the severity of aging, and the needs of each patient. Dr. Smith will evaluate you at your free consultation to customize a surgical procedure to match your needs.  Some of the more common facial procedures performed by Dr. Smith include:

 

Face Lift and Neck Lift surgery addresses the drooping of the cheeks, jawline and neck. This surgery rejuvenates the facial appearance with incisions that are hidden by the ears and occasionally a small incision underneath the chin. My goal for this surgery is a natural, younger appearing face that does not have an obvious "surgical" apperance. In some patients, a mini-facelift accomplishes this result, while those with more severe aging often need careful contouring of the deeper tissues and a gentle re-draping of the skin.

Brow Lift is a general term which refers to surgical rejuvenation of the forehead and eyebrows. Different techniques can be used to alter the position of the eyebrows, or adjust the height of the forehead and hairline. A browlift can also improve skin laxity of the upper lids.

Face Lift and Neck Lift surgery addresses the drooping of the cheeks, jawline and neck. This surgery rejuvenates the facial appearance with incisions that are hidden by the ears and occasionally a small incision underneath the chin. My goal for this surgery is a natural, younger appearing face that does not have an obvious "surgical" apperance. In some patients, a mini-facelift accomplishes this result, while those with more severe aging often need careful contouring of the deeper tissues and a gentle re-draping of the skin.

An otoplasty, or pinning of the ears, is an operation that is performed on men, women and children who do not like the apperance of their ears.  The operation that is performed by Dr. Smith involes shaping the ears to make them less obvious and more asthetically appealing.  Typically, the incisions are placed along the back of the ear to hide any scaring the occurs.

 

If you are unhappy with the shape of your ears or if your ears protrude from the side of your head, an otoplasty may be of interest to you.

Rhinoplasty is an operation that helps correct the shape and appearance of your nose.

Your eyes are often the first thing people notice about your face and are an important aspect of facial attractiveness. Much of the non-verbal communication that constantly occurs is portrayed by our eyes. The eyelids also protect your eyes in addition to adding to their cosmetic appearance.

 

Unfortunately, over time your upper and /or lower eyelids may become "droopy" or "baggy" because the eyelid skin stretches, muscles weaken, and fat pockets bulge and become more prominent around the eyes. This most commonly occurs because of the aging process but also may be due to a hereditary condition that runs in your family. Your eyebrows also may sag or droop as part of this same process.

 

Aesthetically, such conditions may detract from the overall attractiveness of one's eyes and cause a "tired" or older appearance. When severe, these conditions also may cause functional problems, such as impaired field of vision (baggy upper eyelids) or difficulty wearing glasses (baggy lower eyelids).

 

Eyelid surgery to improve the appearance of the eyelids is termed "blepharoplasty" or "eyelid lift surgery." Blepharoplasty surgery is usually an outpatient procedure performed under local anesthesia, with sedation or general anesthesia.

 

The goal of this eyelid surgery is to reduce the "baggy" or sagging tissues, which may include skin, muscle, and fat pockets. In upper eyelid surgery, typically all three types of tissue are removed. In lower eyelid surgery, sometimes only the fat pockets need to be removed, or the skin and muscle also may need to be included.

 

During surgery, incisions are made in the natural folds of the eyelid so that they are virtually unnoticeable after the tissues have healed. After the excess tissue is removed, the incisions are closed with fine sutures.

 

If only fatty tissue needs to be removed from the lower eyelids and not any skin, the surgery can be performed behind the eyelid. This is known as "transconjunctival blepharoplasty" and leaves no visible scar.

 

In cases where the eyebrows are also droopy, a procedure to elevate the eyebrows may be appropriate. This procedure, known as a brow or forehead lift, may be done directly above the eyebrows, within the forehead creases, or by approaching the brows from the hairline or just behind the hairline as a "coronal brow lift" or "endoscopic brow lift."

 

After surgery, one may temporarily experience minor discomfort, tightness of the eyelids, swelling, bruising, and dryness of the eyes. These will usually resolve as the wounds heal. Excessive pain, bleeding, infection, or loss of vision in the period following surgery are very rare. In the unlikely event that such a problem occur, you should notify your physician promptly.

 

Complications that may occur include slight asymmetry in eyelid appearance or eyelid position. These problems occur infrequently and may require additional surgery to correct.

 

Blepharoplasty surgery can provide both cosmetic and functional improvement with minimal risk of serious problems. Most patients are quite pleased with the results of their eyelid surgery.

Dr. Aaron D. Smith offers two diferent types of fillers: Juvederm and Radiesse.

 

Juvederm

JUVÉDERM® XC is the smooth gel filler that your doctor uses to instantly smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose. With just one treatment, you’ll get smooth and natural-looking results that last about 6 months.

Radiesse

Collagen is what gives volume, flexibility and strength to healthy, young skin. As a part of the aging process, your own natural collagen breaks down, diminishing facial volume and elasticity. This loss of elasticity and volume results in wrinkles, facial lines and skin laxity – all of which rob your skin of its youthful, fresh appearance.

 

Replenish Volume. Restore Collagen. Refresh You.

 

Upon injection, RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler immediately provides the volume and lift needed to diminish the signs of aging because of the calcium-based microspheres and gel that comprise the product. But what's unique about RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler is that it acts as a scaffold under the skin, providing structure and stimulating your own natural collagen to grow.  This process continues for several months, which extends the initial effect of RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler. Best of all, the natural results are clinically proven to last a year or more in many patients, which is why more and more cosmetic surgeons, dermatologists, and other medical professionals are choosing RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler to achieve long-lasting facial rejuvenation.
