Face Procedures – Cosmetic Surgery & Reconstructive Surgery
Also known as an eyelid lift or blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure which restores a youthful appearance to tired- or aged-looking eyelids caused by reduced elasticity and weakened muscles. An eyelid lift procedure from Dr. Andrews will achieve the following improvements in the appearance of your eyes:
- The removal of excess derma (skin) from your lower eyelids
- Reduction of puffiness in your upper eyelids
- Eradication of drooping skin or bags under your lower eyelids
- Improved vision by removal of sagging skin on upper eyelids
- Face Lift (Rhytidectomy)
A face lift (rhytidectomy) is one of the most effective and comprehensive facial rejuvenation procedures available. A face lift turns back the clock to make you look years younger. The face lift procedure firms up loose muscles and tightens the skin, reducing signs of aging and restoring a youthful appearance. Dr. Andrews will conduct your face lift procedure under local or general anesthesia in our relaxed, private spa-like setting at the Physician’s Clinic of Iowa in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
Benefits of a face lift procedure:
- Erases creasing around mouth and nose
- Minimizes creasing under eyelids
- Firms up the face for a youthful appearance
- Tightens, smooths and lifts sagging skin
- Minimizes the appearance of jowls
- Reduces visibility of a double chin
- Nose Surgery (Rhinoplasty)
Rhinoplasty corrects the cosmetic appearance and function of the nose. Most commonly, a rhinoplasty procedure is undertaken to make the nose proportionally smaller and of a more pleasing, symmetrical, normal shape. Rhinoplasty can restore normal function and appearance after injury or trauma. Nostril size and shape can be adjusted, or a crooked nose can be made more symmetrical. Candidates for nose surgery should be at least 13 years old and in good health.
A brow lift is a cosmetic procedure that tightens the skin of the forehead to create a more youthful appearance. As we age, creases on the forehead and around the eyes grow deeper and more numerous. As facial skin loses its elasticity, eyebrows droop. Taken together, these symptoms produce a tired or sad appearance. Lateral hooding (folds) in the skin between the eyebrows can accentuate the appearance. A brow lift procedure involves the removal of extra tissue, tightening of loose muscles and raising of forehead skin. This produces a noticeably more youthful and pleasing appearance.
Dermal fillers are injected under the skin to plump up areas of the face. This procedure works like a “liquid facelift,” offering similar benefits to a surgical facelift without the surgery or expense. Fillers can restore a youthful appearance to your face with enhanced contours, tighter skin, reduced wrinkles and creases.
However, dermal fillers have one major down side: They aren’t permanent; and must be maintained with repeated periodic treatments as recommended by your physician. Set up a private consultation with Dr. Andrews to discuss how dermal fillers could achieve your desired facial rejuvenation results.
