A Variety of Treatment Options
Our facial plastic surgery options include:
Facelift: A facelift can minimize the appearance of creases, jowls, wrinkles, and fine lines in the mid and lower face. During facelift surgery, Dr. Barone will create an incision above the hairline near the temples, extending behind the earlobe. Next, Dr. Barone can tighten the underlying tissues, trim away excess skin, and tighten remaining skin to produce a smooth, youthful appearance. This surgery typically takes around two hours. We usually give facelift patients local anesthesia and sedation, although we may recommend general anesthesia to certain patients.
Rhinoplasty: Rhinoplasty, or surgical nose reshaping, can improve the shape and size of your nose. During surgery, Dr. Barone will make careful incisions through which she can reshape bone and cartilage to produce contours that better complement your features. The resulting scars are hidden or virtually unnoticeable to others.
Eyelid surgery: Dr. Barone can address puffy under-eye bags or drooping upper lids with blepharoplasty, helping you look alert and refreshed. Surgery involves small incisions in the creases of the upper lids or below your eyelashes. These incisions allow Dr. Barone to redistribute fat, remove fat and excess skin, and restore a more youthful appearance to the eyes. Remaining skin is artfully tightened before the incisions are closed. We usually perform this surgery with local anesthesia only, but we can provide IV sedation or general anesthesia for improved patient comfort.
Brow lift: Dr. Barone can give you a smoother, lifted, younger-looking brow with a brow lift. During surgery, Dr. Barone will make short incisions along your hairline. She can adjust the underlying tissues and remove excess skin before tightening remaining skin and closing the incisions.
Lip augmentation: Many women want fuller lips. Dr. Barone can add volume to your lips using smooth silicone PermaLip™ implants or fat injections. The fat injections use your own fat, extracted during liposuction, to add volume to the lips.
Facial implant placement: To enhance the contours of your face, Dr. Barone offers facial implants for your cheeks and chin. Made of silicone elastomer, these implants add beautiful volume and definition to your face, creating attractive proportions and symmetry. Dr. Barone can make incisions within your mouth or in your lower eyelids to place cheek implants. She inserts chin implants through incisions below the chin or inside the mouth. Facial implant surgery usually only requires local anesthesia.
