At Atlanta Plastic Surgery, P.C., our board certified plastic surgeons perform facial procedures to help patients achieve a more youthful appearance. Due to age, sun exposure and gravity, many patients begin showing signs of aging such as wrinkles, fine lines, sun spots, and sagging skin. Face Lifts and brow lifts are common facial procedures that reduces these concerns. However, Atlanta Plastic Surgery also offers minimally invasive treatments to help patients who are showing moderate to minimal signs of aging or looking to maintain their previous facial plastic surgery results.
Botox® and facial fillers are injectables that reduce wrinkles and fine lines. Botox® Cosmetic is FDA approved for patients aged 18-65 and can be administered to the forehead and eye area to remove crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead furrows. Facial fillers such as Juvéderm® and Restylane® are also injectables but are administered to other areas of the face such as the cheeks, nasolabial folds, and mouth area. Unlike Botox® which specifically relaxes facial muscles, facial fillers restore areas of lost volume in addition to smoothing wrinkles and lines. Results vary among patients but typically last up to 6 months.
To address wrinkles and surface imperfections like sun spots or uneven skin tone, we also provide laser skin resurfacing and chemical peels. Laser skin resurfacing with our Sciton® laser system allows our surgeons to customize individual treatment plans for patients depending on their skin condition and type. Chemical peels are externally applied to skin, causing dead and damaged skin cells to peel away and reveal new, healthy skin. Both treatments are non-surgical with minimal downtime and promote collagen production for youthful, rejuvenated skin.
While neck lift surgery and genioplasty (chin surgery) can improve the contour of the neck and lower third of the face, Atlanta Plastic Surgery also provides a non-surgical option to tighten lax skin on the neck and face. Ultherapy® non-surgical skin tightening is a new skin technology that uses ultrasound energy to heat and firm areas of lax skin. This ultrasound technology can reduce the appearance of a double chin or “turkey waddle” on the neck as well as tighten sagging skin on the face.
