Your Options for Cosmetic Facial Surgery
Upper and Lower Eyelid Surgery
When drooping, puffy eyelids make you look tired and prematurely aged, facial plastic surgery provides an effective way to enhance appearance and vision.
Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) is a popular procedure from our suite of services. It can improve upper and lower eyelid appearance by correcting sagging eyelids, removing fatty pouches under the eyes, and resolving excess skin from the upper eyelids.
These treatments will give you a fresh and youthful facial appearance and are available to men and women. Learn more about eyelid surgery here.
Neck Lift – Correction of Jowls and Double Chin
Excess skin around the neck and under the chin is a common consequence of skin laxity and aging. A neck lift can sculpt a defined jawline and a sleek, slender neck. With the removal of excess tissue, skin on your neck will appear firm and smooth. Learn more about how neck lift surgery can produce a facial profile with clearly defined contours.
Brow and Forehead Lift
Horizontal lines and sagging skin across your brow can make you look tired or upset, even if you feel rested and happy. Correcting a sagging or low-positioned brow and smoothing furrows between the brow and across the forehead requires a brow lift.
A brow lift is designed to correct these aging effects and provide a youthful facial appearance. Learn more about how a brow lift can refresh your look.
Ear Surgery/Ear Pinning
When ears are too large or stick out too much, this can be a distracting part of your facial appearance. Otoplasty (ear surgery) is a facial plastic surgery procedure we offer at MAE to ensure ears are a complement to your appearance. Learn more about ear surgery here.
Facial Implants – Cheek and Chin Augmentation
Enhancing certain facial features can bring harmony to the overall aesthetics and balance of your appearance. Using implants for facial plastic surgery, MAE Plastic Surgery can add cheek volume, project the chin, and define the jawline. These corrections can add sufficient underlying structure to enhance facial appearance. Learn more about how facial implants can transform your appearance.
Fat Grafting – Natural Facial Enhancement
Facial scarring, skin depressions, sunken cheeks, furrows, creases, and deep facial wrinkles are the result of underlying fat and tissue loss. Autologous fat grafting is an excellent facial plastic surgery procedure to correct volume loss and achieve plump, firm, smooth skin. Learn more about how facial fat transfer can give you a naturally rejuvenated appearance.
Facial Plastic Surgery FAQs
How much pain can I expect with facial plastic surgery?
The answer depends on the surgery performed, but the patient should only experience mild discomfort with any facial plastic surgery we offer. Post-treatment recovery is easily tolerated with prescribed medication.
How much downtime can I expect?
Many of our patients are surprised by how quickly they can return to their normal activities following surgery. You should expect to take time off from work and social activities for at least a week or two, with steady improvement in your appearance throughout your recovery.
How do I prepare for facial plastic surgery?
To start, you need to schedule a consultation, so your MAE surgeon can give you detailed instructions to properly prepare for surgery. These instructions will include abstaining from nicotine products and any anti-inflammatory medications like aspirin.
How will I know what procedure will be best for me?
Learning more about procedures, understanding what issues they resolve, and how they correct them is important when considering surgery. We inform you of the vital details of your procedure during your consultation visit.
