A facelift (rhytidectomy) restores a natural and more youthful appearance to the face by reducing sagging skin and lifting weakened muscles of the face and neck.
As we age, elasticity of the skin is naturally lost. Exposing our face to the sun and many other environmental factors will also cause wrinkles to form. Dr. Demetri uses his expertise to prevent unnatural tightening or pulling of the facial skin, avoiding the “pulled” appearance.
The deep plane facelift is a procedure that lifts and tightens deeper facial tissues than other facelift techniques. It is used to adjust the tissues found below the superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS). This leads to correction of harsh signs of aging, creates natural-looking improvements, and allows the patient to enjoy long-lasting results.
A mini facelift is a plastic surgery procedure that is designed to improve the lower region of the face. By focusing on the lower half of the face, the primary goal of the procedure is to help correct the sagging skin around the neck and jawline. It is a surgical procedure in which the SMAS facial muscle is suspended to give the patient a refreshed look. It is also known as ‘S-lift,’ ‘weekend facelift,’ or ‘lunchtime facelift.’
Many patients, particularly females, are self-conscious about their high hairline. Hairline lowering, also known as forehead reduction, offers patients a great option to improve their confidence.
The surgery takes less than 2 hours to complete and will instantly give patients an improved aesthetic. An irregular scar is hidden along the hairline that fades over the course of several months. Prior to that, the scar can even be camouflaged with makeup once the incision has healed (usually around 7 days after).
Rhinoplasty, often referred to as “nose reshaping,” is a very customized procedure where the goal is to create a balanced and well proportioned nose that harmonizes with your other attractive facial features. It can also correct impaired breathing caused by structural defects in the nose.
Considered by many surgeons to be the most technically difficult procedures in cosmetic surgery, rhinoplasty requires a strong sense of aesthetics coupled with a profound understanding of anatomy to provide you with a satisfying and natural-looking nose that functions properly.
Blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, is a surgical procedure chosen by thousands every year to improve the appearance of their eyes. The eyes can oftentimes be the first area to show signs of aging. Sagging eyelids and excess fat or skin around your eyes can not only make you appear older but can impair your peripheral vision as well.
Blepharoplasty may be performed on the upper eyelids, the lower eyelids, or both.
There are many variations of lip lifting procedures, specifically for the upper lip. Older techniques of lip lifts placed incisions at the vermillion border which would leave patients with a poorly defined junction and an unsightly scar. Recently, newer techniques have emerged which not only provide a stronger lift but also hide the scar.
The browlift is a surgical procedure designed to provide a smooth, lifted and younger forehead. As we age, the forehead and eyebrows can begin to sag and cause our upper eyelid skin to push down giving us a tired look and possibly impairing our vision.
Dr. Demetri will lift and smooth the forehead giving very natural looking results and restoring your youthful and rested appearance back to your brow and forehead.
Chin augmentation surgery is a low-risk procedure that creates a more defined chin and jawline and can have a significant impact on one’s appearance
Chin augmentation surgery is performed as a way to maintain facial balance or improve the overall facial aesthetic. Often paired with rhinoplasty to ensure a balanced profile, a chin implant can be added to a facelift to a achieve a smooth youthful jawline as well.
Excess fatty deposits in the neck may give the appearance of being overweight and cause the appearance of a double chin.
Liposuction is the most effective treatment available for the removal of targeted fat deposits that don’t respond to changes in diet and exercise. A fairly quick procedure, most patients are able to achieve permanent results as long as they maintain a healthy weight.
Volume loss is often the precursor of the visual effects of aging and facial fat transfer is a minimally invasive way to achieve targeted results. Fat grafting involves taking fat from the abdomen or thigh and filling certain areas of the face that start to sink in over time.
The eyes, cheeks and jawline are all great candidates for a rejuvenating procedure like fat grafting.
Otoplasty is a procedure that restores or enhances the appearance of the ears by either setting them back closer to the head or reducing them in size. The procedure is most often performed on children but adults may also undergo the procedure.
The goal of the surgery is to bring facial balance back to the face and create a more comfortable formation for the ear.
The earlobe is a sensitive area that can often be damaged or torn from years of wearing heavy jewelry or trauma. Repairing the earlobe can bring symmetry and facial balance back to the face and is often combine with a face or browlift.
Reestablishing contour and symmetry of the earlobe helps restore the natural appearance and allows the patient to re-pierce their ear.
Scars can result from any number of reasons including injury, previous surgery or acne. Dr. Demetri uses his expertise to determine which technique would be recommended for the specific type and placement of scar.
Surgery to modify or conceal the scar or various laser and cutaneous resurfacing techniques may be recommended.
Buccal fat refers to the fat pads that are located in the lower portion of the cheeks. If abundant, they can give off the appearance of being overweight. This is often referred to as ‘chip monk cheeks.’ This hereditary condition of too much fat in the lower cheeks is difficult to be treated with diet or exercise. For patients who suffer from this, Dr. Demetri will often perform a buccal fat removal procedure.
