A facelift is a surgical procedure that addresses signs of aging across the whole face such as sagging skin, wrinkles, jowls, double chin and deep furrows. This extensive surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia, though less extensive procedures can be done under a combination of sedation and local anesthesia. Typically, a facelift involves tightening the muscles and tissues beneath the skin, then cutting away excess skin, pulling it taught and closing the incision.
Rhinoplasty is the medical term for the surgical procedure that is more commonly known as a nose job. Breathing difficulties or disfigurement due to injury can be repaired in this manner. Patients desiring a more visually pleasing nose that is proportionate to their face look to rhinoplasty to achieve their aesthetic goals. Performed under general anesthesia, an incision is made, then Dr. Yarish will sculpt the bone, cartilage and soft tissue for the desired result. Finally, a splint is placed on the nose for protection.
Blepharoplasty is the medical term for eyelid surgery. The purpose of this procedure is to remove excess fat and skin from the upper lids, lower lids or both to attain a more rejuvenated, alert appearance. Taking up to two hours to complete, eyelid lift occurs under IV sedation on an outpatient basis. Careful incisions are placed, and excess fat is removed or redistributed. Unnecessary skin is also removed before closing the incisions.
A brow or forehead lift restores tightness to the soft tissues of the forehead to remove sagging and furrows. An added benefit is the lifting of the upper eyelids and brows to restore a more youthful look to patients. There are various types of brow lift procedure, depending on desired goals. Most will use general anesthesia and are performed as an outpatient treatment. Sutures used to close the incision will require removal.
A neck lift is a surgical procedure in which the skin and underlying muscles of the neck are tightened. This provides a more pleasing contour to the neck and the jawline. General anesthesia or intravenous sedation may be used depending on the extent of the procedure. Most patients will go home following surgery.
There is a wide variety of facial implants available to make desired enhancements to the appearance of the face. Types include chin, cheek, jaw and lip implants. Each procedure has its own unique requirements and will be explained by Dr. Yarish prior to surgery.
