It’s no secret that areas around the eyes are often among the first facial regions to display prominent signs of age. Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) can tighten sagging skin over the eyes, reduce under-eye bags and puffiness, and generally create a more youthful and refreshed appearance. Dr. Shaw offers both upper eyelid surgery and lower eyelid surgery to help patients achieve their goals.
Both women and men looking to reduce the appearance of jowls and signs of loose, sagging skin in the mid- to lower face and upper neck area may find that a facelift is the ideal procedure for their needs. Facelift surgery has been one of the most commonly performed surgical aesthetic treatments for decades, and many patients experience the results of this procedure long into the future.
With neck lift surgery, Dr. Shaw can significantly reduce signs of excess, sagging skin along the neck that may be having a negative effect on profile contours. A neck lift can also address horizontal creases that commonly form on the neck, as well as the development of inelastic skin under the chin. This treatment can ultimately provide smoother, firmer skin and an improved neck contour.
Individuals who have less severe signs of facial aging and would like to avoid extensive recovery times may benefit from a thread lift procedure. This innovative, less invasive treatment can be performed with a local anesthetic and requires less downtime than a full facelift. Thread lift procedures utilize an advanced suturing technique to lift facial tissue and improve the appearance of sagging skin to produce a smoother, more youthful aesthetic.
Facial Fat Grafting
Facial fat grafting, sometimes referred to as fat injections or “fat transfer,” is a way to rejuvenate specific areas of the face by using excess fat cells from the patient’s own body via liposuction. In a way, fat grafting is a kind of natural dermal filler, only the results can last much longer than other cosmetic injectables. This treatment can smooth away wrinkles and fine lines and add volume to the lips, cheeks, or other facial features. Plus, since fat grafting requires liposuction to be performed in another body area, this procedure essentially provides two aesthetic benefits: facial rejuvenation and body contouring.
Brow Lift / Forehead Lift
A brow lift, also referred to as a forehead lift, can be very helpful for reducing common signs of age, fatigue, and stress in the upper face. Brow lift surgery can address a descended brow that may be affecting the upper eye regions and smooth away wrinkles and creases along the forehead for a more rested and vibrant look.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
The extraordinary power of laser energy has many effective applications for aesthetic enhancement. With laser skin resurfacing, Dr. Shaw can reduce prominent signs of wrinkles, sun damage, loose skin, and other common concerns to give the skin a more youthful, even, and healthy appearance.
