Brow lift (forehead lift)
Often clients who suffer from a furrowed, wrinkled or low brow will be perceived as angry, disgruntled or sad, even when they are in the best of spirits. A low-hanging brow may also impair vision. A brow lift works to restore balance to the upper face, creating a more pleasant and well-rested appearance. Scars are barely visible, particularly with the ever popular endoscopic technique.
Ear surgery (otoplasty)
Otoplasty is performed on children as young as 7 years old to combat the consequences of disproportionately prominent, misshapen or protruding ears. Large ears can lead to teasing and bullying, which can have long-term negative effects on a growing child. Of course, ear surgery is also appropriate for adults who are unhappy in any way with the appearance of their ears.
If you suffer from puffy, droopy or tired-looking eyelids, the blepharoplasty procedure can help restore a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance, while also improving vision-related issues. The incisions for eyelid surgery are neatly hidden within either the upper lid crease, or the lower lash line.
When performed by a skilled, experienced plastic surgeon such as Dr. Shermak, a facelift is still the gold standard for reversing the most grievous signs of aging. Dr. Shermak’s technique is subtle and conservative, preserving the spontaneity of your facial expression while minimizing wrinkles, fine lines and drooping skin, restoring the angles, lines and fullness of the face.
The fat transfer process takes unwanted fat cells from an area such as the hips, belly or thighs, purifies them, and then injects them into a part of the body which requires enhancements, such as the lips, cheeks, forehead or eye area. The transferred fat replaces facial volume lost to the inevitable process of aging. The fat can also provide a stem cell effect, rejuvenating skin quality and reducing scar visibility, as well as old acne skin irregularity.
To reverse evidence of aging in the neck, such as crepe-like skin, excess fat, and an ill-defined angle between the chin and neck, a neck lift is performed to streamline the jawline. A neck lift can work to take years off your appearance while also ensuring a more attractive fit in collars. No more need for turtlenecks!
Neck liposuction is performed to rid the neck of unwanted, stubborn fat that typically does not respond to dieting and exercise. A mini cannula is used to strategically suction out the fat cells, restoring the neck to a more youthful, slim appearance. This procedure, with minimal downtime, allows our clients to look like they took off weight or years!
Rhinoplasty (nose surgery)
As the central feature of the face, the nose plays an important role in expressing your personality and making a first impression. Rhinoplasty works to create more balance and harmony among the features by reducing an overly large nasal hump, correcting the nasal tip, improving nasal symmetry or reshaping the nostrils. The procedure is also effective at countering structural concerns such as a deviated septum or addressing traumatic injuries.
For skin cancer patients, the appearance of the skin after cancer extirpation can be just as devastating as the disease itself. Mohs reconstruction is a process that works to cosmetically improve areas of the body marred by excision of tumors, carcinomas and melanomas. Dr. Shermak has excellent results in the face after Mohs extirpation performed by local dermatologists. Surgery may be arranged for the day of the Mohs procedure so reconstruction may be performed immediately.
