Facial sculpting (also known as facial contouring) is the reshaping of facial contours through the removal of fatty deposits under the skin, both on the face and neck. Facial contouring includes surgically reshaping bone and cartilage or adding fillers to create fullness and definition, such as on the ears or nose. Below is a list of facial contouring procedures offered by Dr. Rosenthal in San Jose.
Facelift San Jose
Depending on the area to be treated, facelifts usually involve incisions made along the hairline, which extend around the ears to the lower scalp. The skin is lifted away from the fat and muscle underneath and excess fat is removed. Dr. Rosenthal will then tighten the remaining tissue, securing it with sutures or clips. Usually, a small incision will be made under the chin to remove excess fat and skin of the neck along with tightening of the neck muscles. Facelifts are amongst the Top 5 most popular cosmetic procedures.
Brow Lift San Jose
Brow lifts correct the sagging position of eyebrows that create an appearance of sadness and fatigue. By softening creases on the forehead, Dr. Rosenthal’s patients appear more relaxed and youthful. This minimally invasive procedure takes approximately 45 minutes and is done under general anesthesia.
Eyelid Lift (Blepharoplasty) San Jose
Eyelid lift, or blepharoplasty, is the preferred treatment for removing bags under the eyes or for drooping eyelids, conditions that add years to an appearance and can even impair vision. Eyelid surgery is generally performed under local anesthesia. Dr. Rosenthal will make small incisions along the natural lines of your eyelids, through which excess fat, skin and muscle are removed.
Nose Surgery (Rhinoplasty) San Jose
Nose surgery is performed to modify the size and shape of the nostrils, tip or bridge of the nose, or to alter the slope and angle of the nose. In most procedures, the skin of the nose is cut and lifted away from the bone and cartilage framework beneath, which is then shaped and sculpted as desired. The skin is then re-draped over the new framework, and a splint is applied to help your nose maintain its new form. Rhinoplasty is the second most popular form of cosmetic surgery in the United States.
Neck Lift Surgery San Jose
A neck lift is a facial plastic surgery procedure that involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the neck. If needed, neck muscles can also be restructured during the procedure. By tightening the skin around the neck, a more youthful appearance is given, both to the neck and face.
Face + Neck Lift Surgery San Jose
A face and neck lift can be performed together in order to combine the benefits of both facial plastic surgery procedures at once. As both facial plastic surgery procedures tighten the appearance of different areas, performing the two facial contouring procedures at the same time gives the entire face a slimmer, younger look.
Otoplasty (Ear Surgery) San Jose
Otoplasty surgery is designed to improve the appearance of the ears, having multiple medical and cosmetic benefits. It is most commonly used to correct protruding ears or to reduce the size of unusually large ears.
