Facelift

Facelift surgery is designed to create a more youthful appearance by addressing common signs of facial aging, including wrinkles, fine lines, jowls, sagging skin, and facial volume loss. The goal is to help patients look and feel refreshed while still maintaining a natural appearance. Neck lift surgery addresses the lower portions of the face and neck, creating a tauter, firmer neck, chin, and jawline contour.

Neck Lift

A neck lift is a plastic surgery procedure that helps address these concerns to restore a smoother and more youthful neck appearance. Using this treatment, plastic surgeons aim to tighten the underlying muscles and remove excess skin to sculpt a more defined jawline and smoother neck that better reflects how young and energetic you feel.

Eyelid Lift

Eyelid Lift—also called blepharoplasty—is a procedure that involves removing excess skin and fat from the eyelids in order to create a more alert and youthful aesthetic. Blepharoplasty can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both, depending on the unique goals of each patient. Common concerns addressed include dark circles, under-eye bags, sagging skin, displaced fat pockets, puffiness, a tired appearance, and even vision obstruction caused by overhanging upper eyelid skin. These procedures can be done on an outpatient basis, with a minimum of down time.

Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty, colloquially referred to as a “nose job”, is a surgery designed to improve facial harmony by changing the appearance of one’s nose. The eyes may be the windows to your soul, but that may be obscured by a distracting appearance to the nose. A nose that is too large, has a hump, is crooked, or in some other way does not fit with your face can greatly detract from your overall appearance. Additionally, deformities of certain structures of the nose can make breathing difficult and require repair. Dr. Avraham will tailor a plan that addresses your aesthetic and functional concerns. As always, the goal is a natural appearing nose that fits your face and appearance.

Chin Implants

A small or weak chin can impair the proportions of the face and result in a disharmonious appearance. Many people with a prominent nose have this issue exacerbated by an under projected chin. This is easily treated by placement of a chin implant through an imperceptible incision. This operation can be done as a standalone, or in combination with other facial aesthetic procedures.

Buccal Fat Pad Resection

Many patients feel that their cheeks are too full. This can result in a rounded face shape that draws the eye away from desirable high cheekbones. Dr. Avraham treats this by excising some of the fat pad of the lower cheeks. This is accomplished through tiny incisions made on the inside of the mouth, in what ends up being a scarless procedure.

Chin liposuction

A double chin is a common complaint. Dr. Avraham can help address this issue using a number of techniques. Most commonly, liposuction is performed to reduce the amount of fat in this area and to allow redraping of the skin. If the amount of excess skin is too great for adequate treatment with liposuction, a neck lift may be required.

Otoplasty

Otoplasty is a surgical procedure that adjusts the size, position, and projection of the ears to bring them into better balance and alignment with a patient’s features. The common indication for otoplasty is prominent ears. It can be performed on both adults and adolescents, and the precise techniques used can be adjusted depending on the needs and goals of the individual.

Fat Grafting

Facial aging is associated with loss of volume in certain areas of the face. This can be addressed with facial fat grafting—also called fat transfer—a treatment where a patient’s own fat is harvested and then injected into targeted areas to restore volume. Dr. Avraham uses liposuction to extract the fat from a donor site—often the abdomen, thighs, or back—before purifying it and then reinjecting it in strategic locations, such as the cheeks, under-eye hollows, jawline, and lips. One of the major benefits of facial fat grafting is its ability to augment the face with results that last longer than those achieved using dermal fillers.

Torn Earlobe Repair

Torn earlobes or stretched out earring holes are an unfortunate byproduct of trauma or heavy earrings. Dr. Avraham can restore the normal appearance of your earlobe in a short procedure that is done under local anesthesia in the office.

Skin Cancer and Reconstruction

Because our face is often uncovered and exposed to sunlight, it is a common location for a variety of types of skin cancers. While the majority of these are not life threatening, they can impact aesthetically and functionally important parts of the face, such as the lips and nose. Dr. Avraham performs excision of skin lesions, as well as repair of wounds caused by excisions performed by dermatologists. Dr. Avraham will utilize meticulous advanced techniques to reduce the odds of an unsightly scar or deformity.

Laceration Repair and Scar Revision

We all work hard and play hard. Unfortunately, the physical activities we enjoy so much can occasionally result in injuries. If you cut yourself, one of the factors that can greatly impact the quality of your scar is the initial repair. Dr. Avraham can repair these injuries in a manner that improves your odds of an aesthetic result. If you have a scar from a previous injury, Dr. Avraham can recommend a variety of surgical and non-surgical options to make your scar less noticeable.
