Oftentimes our appearance isn’t an accurate representation of how we feel on the inside. As we age, our youthful face starts obeying the law of gravity, as the years of downward pulling start to show.
The force of gravity is assisted by the sun, as our skin slowly becomes drier, loses collagen, and forms wrinkles. The sun also damages the integrity of the skin, contributing to discoloration, texture changes, and in some cases even skin cancer. Beneath the skin our facial fat, which is a key component of a youthful appearance, is lost or redistributed, often creating relative emptiness where there once was fullness, and vice versa.
Facial Rejuvenation with Dr. Robert Fante
Dr. Fante offers us ways of rejuvenating the face to provide a rested, relaxed, and more youthful appearance that is all you. There are many procedures to choose from, and in your initial consultation, you can learn about possible combinations that range from simple injections to minimally invasive cosmetic surgery. Dr. Fante will answer your questions and make suggestions. Together you can develop the best course of action and in a short while, that mask of aging that’s been hiding who you really are will be a thing of the past.
Cosmetic Surgery Procedures
The cosmetic procedures offered at our practice include:
Blepharoplasty contours the fat and muscle, removing excess skin from the upper and lower eyelids. Dark circles under the eyes can be due to under-eye bags, which may also be improved through this procedure. In addition, some people have eyelid surgery to correct inherited characteristics.
Where facelifts tighten and lift the lower two-thirds of the face, brow lifts (also called forehead lifts) do the same for the upper face, making you look younger and more rested while avoiding excessive elevation of the eyebrows.
A facelift is a plastic surgery procedure that tightens the tissues of the lower two-thirds of the face. In general, a facelift is performed to fix that droopy, sad look that belies our natural good spirits.
This procedure lifts sagging cheeks, smoothing out those furrows that run from the nose to the corners of the mouth, and lifting up the corners of the mouth. The mid-facelift restores a more triangular shape with the youthful appearance of higher cheekbones.
Neck lift surgery tightens sagging skin on the neck and improves muscle integrity and banding. A neck lift doesn’t have any effect on the cheeks, although it will tighten your jawline. This procedure is often combined with an endoscopic mid-facelift.
Ear Surgery (Otoplasty)
Ear Surgery can be done for both children and adults to correct pertruding ears and earlobe deformities. Lop ear and bat ear, the most common types of congenital excessive protrusion of the external ear, and acquired earlobe deformities are the most common problems solved by ear surgery.
Laser resurfacing treatments remove damaged skin and rejuvenate a patient’s appearance. We use a variety of lasers and other light-based therapies to address skin texture and color changes.
Botox, Fillers and Skin Care
We offer a varitey of non-surgical treatments for skin care and rejuvenation including Botox, Fillers, Microneedling, Kybella and more. These treatments can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as other skin imperfections.
If you are interested in permanent facial contouring, which cannot be achieved with temporary filler, Dr. Fante offers a number of different facial implants to meet your needs. Depending on your desired outcome, you may be a candidate for chin implants, cheek implants, temple implants or lip implants.
Facial fat transfer (grafting) is a surgical procedure that involves harvesting fat from an area in the body. These areas include the belly, hips, neck, or thighs. Dr. Fante uses specialized and gentle liposuction under local anesthesia or twilight sedation.
BodyTite is a great solution for individuals who are looking to reduce fat without the saggy, wrinkly skin. It also helps improve skin laxity after weight loss or due to aging. BodyTite is a minimally invasive procedure that shapes, contracts and lifts without the scalpel or large scarring. You are left with surgical-like results without prolonged downtime.
FaceTite is a new procedure that is comparable to a surgical facelift, without the large scars. FaceTite provides dramatic improvement in skin laxity on the face and neck, which was previously only attainable through a surgical procedure such as a facelift. FaceTite utilizes minimally invasive radiofrequency energy to melt fat and contour skin.
AccuTite is the smallest contraction device in cosmetic medicine.
With AccuTite, physicians are able to apply focal radiofrequency contraction and prevent the need for more invasive or excisional surgery. The AccuTite is the latest in the Radiofrequency Assisted Lipolysis (RFAL) family of technologies.
