Plastic surgery is a medically sound practice that rivals the dermatological field in helping people eliminate obstructing physical features. Beyond the Hollywood glam and glaze of mainstream plastic surgery lies a reputable discipline that is able to confront and effectively treat anything from acne scarring to rhinoplasty.
Cosmetic surgery offers individuals the opportunity to make changes to their face and body that improve their overall look. During a consultation with one of the board-certified plastic surgeons at the Williams Center, prospective patients can learn about the multitude of surgical enhancements available. Everyone’s face is unique, and the aging process of the face is no different. The Williams Center approaches each facelift with a tailored approach to address your specific desired outcome, anatomy, and needs. The links give further detail on the different types of surgeries, like brow lift and forehead lift, weekend facelift, extended weekend facelift, weekend neck lift, weekend neck and midfacelift (deep plane facelift), fat transfers, and scar repair.
Eyelid plastic surgery, or blepharoplasty, can be performed on the lower or upper eyelids while the patient is under sedation with local anesthesia by making careful incisions along the eyelid’s creases and expertly repositioning the natural fat deposits. Patients suffering with the ptosis condition and experiencing an impairing drooping in one or both of their eyelids, as well as patients who are dealing with an impaired tear duct, can find desired surgical solutions in ptosis repair surgery and tear duct repair surgery.
Cheek augmentation and chin augmentation chisel preferable proportions, while rhinoplasty is the surgical reshaping of the nose. Surgery can reveal more imbalances of the profile, such as overly large or small noses that were once in proportion to the chin or cheeks, while misaligned cheek bones and chin bones can be indicative of difficulty in setting teeth and chewing.
Nose surgery (rhinoplasty) can be both an aesthetic and functional surgery. Aesthetic rhinoplasty focuses on refining the appearance of the nose. Examples include reducing the size of the nose or removing a hump or droopy tip. Functional rhinoplasty can be performed as a septoplasty, restructuring the septum to even the flow of air to each nostril, improving breathing. Revision rhinoplasty corrects bad nose surgeries and even helps to eliminate nose deformities such as the “boxer nose,” while variations within the surgery give patients the options of chiseling their nose’s unsightly humps, lumps, droops, and crookedness. Excessively pinched noses also obstruct breathing and occasionally call for similar revision surgeries. Rhinoplasty/nasal reconstruction surgery can improve a crooked nose, crooked nasal base and tip, saddle nose, drooping nose, large nose, nasal hump, and pinched nasal tip. It can also refine the nasal tip and serve as revision rhinoplasty.
Ear surgery (otoplasty) aims to reshape the affected ear of the patient and can help to proportion the ear itself, aiding in hearing and preventing unusual accumulations of wax.
