If you want to elevate your eyebrows to a more youthful position, this is the option for you. There are a variety of methods Dr. Franco can use to raise the eyebrows and smooth out forehead wrinkles. This includes non-surgical methods like BOTOX or Dysport injections as well as surgical options for those with severely sagging eyebrows.
Buccal fat is a natural pad of tissue that sits in your lower cheeks, providing cushion for other facial muscles. While this fat pad can make the face look full and youthful, it can also become overgrown, giving a swelled or puffy look. Buccal fat pad removal is a great way to achieve a more contoured look around your jawline and reduce roundness in the lower third of your face.
This procedure is ideal for those who want to improve the proportions of their chin to their overall facial structure. Typically performed with an implant, chin augmentation is a popular choice for both men and women who want a more pronounced or balanced chin appearance. It is common for the procedure to be combined with other facial surgeries like a rhinoplasty or otoplasty.
An otoplasty, also known as ear pinning, is the best way to reshape protruding ears. This is a common procedure for those who are self-conscious about the appearance of their ears due deformity, size, shape, or symmetry. Dr. Franco can reposition the ear so that it is less noticeable and is more proportionate with other facial features.
Nose surgery is a common choice for patients who are unhappy with the size and shape of their nose or nostrils. Patients often seek this type of surgery if their nose is too big, uneven, or crooked. For those who have a deviated septum, a rhinoplasty can help improve breathing while also providing these cosmetic enhancements.
Eyelid surgery is typically done on either the upper or lower eyelids, with some patients combining both into one procedure. It is a great option for those who have excess skin in their eyelids that either restrict their vision or give the appearance of under eye bags. A blepharoplasty can help remove this excess skin and lift the affected area, giving you a rested, refreshed look. While this type of surgery is most common for older adults, it can also be done for young adults as well.
These two procedures are the most dramatic in terms of a youthful rejuvenation. Facelifts are the ideal procedure for patients who have advanced signs of aging, such as sagging skin, deep wrinkles, fine lines, and loss of facial volume. When combined with a neck lift, a facelift can address these issues by removing excess skin around the neck and lower jaw, reshaping the underlying tissue between the neck and face for smooth transition, and minimizing the appearance of facial creases or wrinkles.
If you need skin cancer lesions removed from your face, Mohs reconstruction surgery can help lessen the scarring of your procedure. Using a flap or skin graft, Dr. Franco can cover the wounded area to help it heal with minimal scarring and a smooth finish. While a Mohs reconstruction is usually performed on the face, it can be done on any part of the body that has a skin cancer lesion.
