Are you unhappy with the size or shape of your ears? Otoplasty, or ear surgery, also referred to as ear pinning, is a corrective surgery that’s used for adults and children. The term “ear pinning” is used because it corrects ears that protrude by pinning them back toward the patient’s head to create a more natural look. Reconstructive ear surgery also corrects birth-related defects or defects due to trauma.
Your eyes are very expressive; they can tell people if you’re interested in something or happy. So bags or puffiness under your eyes, excess skin on the lower lids, or wrinkled and drooping upper lids can make you look tired. Sagging of the eyelids can result from genetics or aging, and they can also cause impaired vision. Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, removes excess fat and skin or loosened muscles from the lower or upper eyelids, giving you a refreshed, firmer-looking eye area.
When signs of aging appear like sagging in the mid-face region, creases under the lower eyelids, creases along the nose, mouth, and jowls—they can be easily corrected with a facelift. Dr. Mathew Plant offers a variety of facelift procedures including the traditional method, neck lift, or a limited incision procedure, and can take care of age-related issues on your face and neck. For example, the traditional incision technique starts at the temples at the hairline, and goes around the ears, and ends at the lower scalp. Dr. Plant will discuss the procedure that’s best for you during your consultation.
Did you know that your neck says more about your age than your face? Sagging, bags on the jowls, loose skin on the neck, or fat on the chin can be caused by aging, weight loss, or even genetics. A neck lift can enhance the shape of the jawline, chin and neck. Using an incision from the ear lobe to the lower scalp going behind the ear, excessive skin is removed, and the fat and muscle is repositioned, lifting the jowl and neck.
