Create the facial profile you desire with the help of Dr. Boggess’ expertise. Through one or a combination of several procedures we’ll enhance your facial profile by reducing signs of aging and improving the balance of your facial features.
Here are a few common procedures used to help patients improve their facial profile.
Rhinoplasty (Nose Job)
In this procedure, Dr. Boggess will determine the best size and contour to suit your face. While you are under general anesthesia, he’ll make incisions inside the nose, and possibly across the bridge of skin that separates the nostrils, to access the bone and cartilage that provides the structure and shape to the nose. He can then employ various reconstructive techniques to realign the bones and reshape the cartilages to achieve the desired aesthetic effect. Splinting and taping will be required for one week after surgery to provide support during the early healing period. Although most people can return to normal activities within one to two weeks, the full effect of the surgery will not be completely evident for several months after surgery.
In a chin augmentation procedure, an incision is made under the chin, and an implant is secured into place over the bone to create more fullness and projection. The procedure can be performed in-office with light sedation and local anesthesia. Initial healing generally takes one to two weeks.
If you have experienced sagging or laxity along your neck and jawline, you can achieve a firmer, more attractive look with Face/Neck Lift surgery. Dr. Boggess will provide the appropriate amount of correction to provide you with the neck and jawline contour that you had in your younger days. The procedure removes loose, excess skin and tightens the underlying fascia and muscles for a more refined profile. Incisions are hidden in the natural creases around the ears and hairline and under the chin. You can return to work after one to two weeks, but full recovery can take several months.
Neck liposuction may be performed as an isolated procedure or in combination with face/neck lift surgery to remove fat under the chin and jawline. Liposuction is an effective way to remove fat with less recovery time. However, liposuction cannot tighten loose skin, so additional surgery may be needed. Patients can return to work after liposuction in about a week, but full recovery takes at least two weeks.
These procedures can give you a well defined profile that projects an image of youth and confidence. Contact Dr. Boggess today to discuss these procedures.
