Face

Facial Surgery

Surgical techniques for improving the contours of the face, such as a facelift, forehead lift, or rhinoplasty, are popular methods for reducing the signs of aging, correcting natural defects, and improving self-confidence. Each of these facial procedures is performed in Brooklyn’s Acredited Ambulatory Surgery Office to change the contours of the face through the removal of excess skin, the re-contouring of features such as the ears or nose, or the insertion of extra tissue to increase the volume of certain areas.

FACE LIFT

face lift at discreet plastic surgeryAs we age, various factors such as time, gravity, weight loss or gain, sun damage, and stress take their toll on our faces. This causes the skin and muscles of the face to lose tone and elasticity. A face lift, or rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure designed to improve the visible signs of aging of the face and neck. A face lift cannot stop the process of aging, but can restore the look of youth and rejuvenation to the face by tightening the deeper muscle layer, re-draping the skin of face and neck, and removing selected areas of fat. A face lift can be performed alone, or in conjunction with other procedures, such as a neck lift, brow lift, eyelid surgery, nasal surgery, liposuction, fat grafting, chemical or laser peels, or injection of Botox or fillers for more dramatic results. Face lift surgery is individualized for each patient. Dr. Kaufman will carefully assess your facial features and consult with you on how to optimize your results, giving your face a fresher, more youthful look.

EYELID SURGERY (Blepharoplasty)

Eyelid surgery can be done to improve the cosmetic appearance of the eyes or to improve sight by lifting droopy eyelids out of the patient’s field of vision. A blepharoplasty can be performed alone, or in conjunction with other facial rejuvenation procedures, such as face lift, neck lift, brow lift, liposuction, fat grafting, chemical or laser peels, or injection of Botox or fillers for more dramatic results. Eyelid surgery is individualized for each patient. Dr. Kaufman will carefully consult with you on how to optimize your results, giving your eyelids a fresher, more youthful look.

NOSE SURGERY (Rhinoplasty)

nose surgeryThe nose is the most prominent feature on the human face. A cosmetically unappealing nose can be a source of great angst for men and women alike. Rhinoplasty, or nose-job, is a surgical procedure designed to produce changes in the appearance, structure, and even function of the nose. It is one of the most common procedures performed by plastic surgeons. Rhinoplasty can reshape the nose by reducing or augmenting the size of the nose, refining the nasal tip, removing or flattening a hump, narrowing nostril width, changing the angle between the nose and the mouth, or correcting injury, birth defects, or other problems that affect breathing. It is a highly-individualized procedure designed to carefully meet each patient’s needs and expectations. Dr. Kaufman will carefully assess your nose and face, and customize the right procedure for you.

CHEEK & CHIN AUGMENTATION

Full cheeks and a strong chin can help achieve overall balance and proportion to the cosmetic facial appearance. Facial implants are synthetic, solid, biocompatible materials designed to enhance or augment the physical structure of your face. The precise type and size of implants best suited for you requires careful evaluation of the features you wish to correct, and a thorough assessment of your goals and expectations. Cheek and chin implants can increase the projection of the cheekbones and chin, adding volume and prominence to areas which may be recessed or flat. Cheek and chin augmentation are often performed in conjunction with other facial rejuvenation procedures to achieve overall symmetry, balance, and cosmetic harmony. Dr. Kaufman will carefully consult with you on how to optimize your results.

BROW/FOREHEAD LIFT

Looseness in these structures may cause drooping eyebrows, eyelid hooding, forehead furrows, and frown lines, giving a person an unwanted tired, serious, unhappy, or even angry appearance. Brow lift surgery can revitalize the forehead and brow region by raising the upper eyebrows, tightening the forehead structures, and improving frown lines. A brow lift may be performed alone, or in conjunction with other procedures, such as a face lift or eyelid surgery. Advances in brow lift surgery make it possible to perform the procedure through a variety of methods, including direct approach and minimally invasive endoscopic technique. Dr. Kaufman will consult with you to determine which approach is right for you.

NECK LIFT

Neck lift is comparable to face lift; however, the neck can often be improved with smaller, less invasive procedures, or liposuction alone. Like face lift, a neck lift can be performed alone, or in conjunction with other procedures, such as a face lift, brow lift, eyelid surgery, nasal surgery, liposuction, fat grafting, chemical or laser peels, or injection of Botox. Dr. Kaufman will carefully assess your neck and facial features and consult with you on how to optimize your results in rejuvenating your neck.
