Absolutley, a hairline browlift will not only raise your brows to a more youthful position and open up the upper eyelid,it will also reduce the forehead at the same time. Many patients are fearful of a browlift, but this is a great procedure with long lasting results.
The initial downtime is one week. The sutures are removed 7 days after surgery. Most people are going to take 10-14 days before getting out and about with friends and family. Swelling can take a few months to completely dissipate.
You can, however, I would need to evaluate you in the office to make sure you are a good candidate for just the neck. We want to ensure that you don’t have any skin that would bunch up if doing just the neck.
Absolutely! Narrowing the nasal tip cartilages that are giving you the bulbous tip and narrowing the nasal alae which cause the overall tip to look wider than you want, can be performed with a rhinoplasty. The profile can be maintained and the nose can be smaller and thinner. The amount of correction is limited by the thickness of the skin, and the strength of the underlying cartilages. Those things can be assessed during your consultation and should be discussed to give you realistic expectations.
I’d recommend having some imaging done prior to your rhinoplasty. Imaging is when you alter the appearance of the nose on the computer and show the patient some suggestions as to what should be done to the nose.
Breathing well through your nose is a very complicated thing. Some people have straight noses, but have trouble breathing, while others have very crooked noses and have no problems at all. Since you’re thinking about getting a rhinoplasty anyway, this will be addressed in your consultation. If it is a problem or could become one, surgery for breathing and appearance can be performed at the same time since Dr. Standefer also is a board certified ENT.
The ideal nose takes into consideration the size and shape of the face, combined with cultural aesthetics. When you go to see a surgeon, be sure to see some type of idea visually as to what it would look like and how it would be done. Make sure your expectations are realistic.
In our office we tell patients the following: Low impact activities for the first 4-6 weeks and high impact thereafter. The reason is that you don’t want to risk having any bleeding into the surgical area which is more likely the first month or so.
The rhinoplasty procedure for most patients takes up to a year to heal completely and get your final result. Most importantly, you have to be patient and allow the swelling to subside before the final results are in.

Adding volume to give facial balance can be done many ways. Injectable fillers both temporary or more permanent, fat transfer, and even cheek implants can add the volume you desire. Often times a combination of adding volume to your cheeks and decreasing the projection of your nose can help achieve the balance you desire.

A breast lift is ideal for the patient that is not looking to significantly reduce the size of their breasts but looking to have a more youthful appearance.
Large breasts can cause a lot of body aches and pains. Women looking to reduce the size of their breasts tend to be very satisfied after the procedure as it can significantly improve their neck and back pain symptoms.
All men have breast tissue. However, when it becomes excessive it is known as gynecomastia. Depending on the amount and density of the tissue to be removed, this can be achieved with liposuction or the use of direct excision. It is a great way to masculinize a chest and improve the overall appearance of the male physique.
The tummy tuck or abdominoplasty procedure will treat excess belly fat and skin. During this procedure, your abdominal muscles are also repositioned if necessary. Patients can expect to fully recover in 8 weeks.
Thighplasty helps address excess skin and fat of the inner thighs that can’t be managed with liposuction alone. The scar can be hidden in the groin crease or inner thigh.
A Brazilian Butt Lift will help you obtain more of an hourglass figure and/or can just increase the size and overall shape of your buttock region. It uses your own fat that is obtained with liposuction of a different area of your body to enhance the size and shape of the buttocks.

A Mommy Make-Over is a combination of procedures used to improve a women’s overall appearance. Typically, it consists of breast and belly procedures, but any combination of aesthetic procedures can be considered.
Patients who have liposuction will need to take it easy for 7-10 days before returning to work. If the procedure is done, without other procedures, patients can be back to usual activities in 2-3 weeks.
