As people grow older, their face will begin to show signs of aging. This often causes men and women to appear older than they really are. From wrinkles and creases in the forehead to sagging skin in the area, these features are undesirable and most individuals seek cosmetic plastic surgery to achieve a more youthful appearance. Additionally, massive weight loss commonly leaves the skin with loss of elasticity and loose, excess skin in the neck region. Dr. Katzen specializes in neck liposuction and neck lift surgery. Several of his massive weight loss patients frequently request these procedures in order to achieve a more aesthetically pleasing contour.
Other procedures offered include:
This procedure removes excess skin and fat from the upper face area through an incision hidden along the natural hairline. The underlying muscles are repositioned to a more youthful position.
Furrowed brows can be corrected when the underlying muscles are repositioned to a higher location on the forehead. A more alert and refreshed appearance can be achieved with this procedure. A browlift may be covered by health insurance.
Upper/Lower Eyelid Surgery
Bulging upper and/or lower eyelids that make the eyes appear tired or angry can be remedied by removing excess skin and tissue. Incisions are made in the upper eyelid crease and along the lower lash line in order to hide scarring. Health insurance may cover this procedure.
Due to hereditary or injury, imperfections of the nose can be bothersome; therefore, individuals often undergo nose surgery to enhance its appearance. Based on the complexity of the procedure, either open or closed rhinoplasty surgery can be performed.
In order to add volume to the face and achieve a more youthful appearance, cheek implants can be placed through incisions made inside the mouth. The implants are made of a hard silicone in order to resemble the natural cheekbone.
This non-invasive facial rejuvenating procedure uses fat taken from another area of the body. The fat is harvested and injected into wrinkles, lines, and creases to achieve a smoother facial contour.
Patients who have a receding chin may find that their facial structure is unbalanced. A chin implant can provide patients a more proportional profile; incisions can be made on the inside of the mouth or under the chin.
