Turn back time and give yourself an all-over younger appearance with a facelift. Dr. Nesmith often recommends a rhytidectomy, or facelift, to patients who want to drastically improve visible signs of aging. A facelift can correct and eliminate sagging skin and deep creases below the eyes, along the nose and around the corners of the mouth. Some patients experience displaced fat pockets as they age, which tend to be more noticeable. With a facelift, those fat deposits can be removed, wiping away a double chin, and allowing for a tightening of the skin. Say goodbye to loose skin as we help firm it and return you to a younger looking version of yourself.
Short Scar Facelift
Nesmith Plastic Surgery Center offers short scar facelifts for patients who wish to improve visible signs of aging on their face and neck. Dr. Nesmith will evaluate your facial and neck structure to determine if a short scar facelift is right for you. This procedure redefines the jaw line by smoothing out and lifting the loose skin. A short scar facelift allows for less recovery time and scars are almost completely hidden. Reclaim your youth by improving the contour of your face and achieving a fresh new look.
Some patients don’t require an all-over facelift, but they are still troubled by deep lines on their forehead and brow caused by decades of laughter, worry and stress. While these lines are completely normal during facial expressions, they can become distracting when they appear permanently. With a forehead lift or brow lift, Dr. Nesmith can minimize the lines of your brow and the bridge of your nose so that frown lines are a thing of the past. There are two types of brow lifts that Dr. Nesmith can perform - a traditional lift using standard modern techniques, and a minimal incision lift for more subtle improvements.
We all want the sparkle in our eyes to be seen by the world, but for some, wrinkles and hooded eyelids can diminish the natural sparkle by drawing attention away from the eyes. At Nesmith Plastic Surgery Center, our staff can help bring the brilliance back to your eyes through the techniques of eyelid surgery. Dr. Nesmith can remove loose or sagging skin that causes what is known as hooded eyes. These folds of skin can make it difficult to see as well as disrupt the natural contour of your eyelids. Excess fatty deposits that form as you age can also be removed so that the skin around your eyes appears less puffy. And while we all struggle with the occasional bags under our eyes, for some, those bags become permanent as skin ages and sags, causing deep lines to form. Combat those wrinkles and bags and send them packing with cosmetic eyelid surgery.
Defined facial features have long been the standard of natural beauty. But for many of us, certain facial features, like our cheekbones, are not as defined as we would like. Creating more prominent cheekbones through cheek implants can be the answer to bringing balance to your facial features, as well as boosting your self-confidence. Cheek implants (malar augmentation) are a safe and permanent solution to enhancing your cheekbones and providing that elegant look of beauty. Dr. Nesmith performs cheek implants on both men and women, and in patients who are older than 35, cheek implants can help minimize sagging midfacial tissue and skin. This could eliminate the need, or at least postpone the need, for a facelift to correct the loose skin.
Rhinoplasty, or nose surgery, is one of the most common forms of facial plastic surgery performed. Millions of people are unhappy with the size or shape of their nose and nostrils, and rhinoplasty provides these people with many options. Dr. Nesmith can change the size of your nose to help balance the appearance with your other facial features. With rhinoplasty, we can change the width of your nose at the bridge and adjust your profile (eliminating bumps or dips) for a smoother appearance. We can also focus on the tip of your nose to decrease the size or reshape it to reduce upturning or drooping. Some men and women experience difficulty in breathing with deviation and nasal asymmetry, and nose surgery can correct those issues as well. Talk with Dr. Nesmith to discover what it’s like to love your nose.
A deviated septum happens when the cartilage separating nostrils is out of position. This can cause problems with breathing, nosebleeds, and pain. Septoplasty is a plastic surgery procedure fixes a deviated nasal septum. It straightens the septum, which allows for improvements in breathing. If you are having trouble breathing due to a deviated nasal septum, Nesmith Plastic Surgery Center can alleviate the issue through septoplasty plastic surgery. Dr. Nesmith will review the process with you so you can stop letting a deviated septum affect your life.
Children often look adorable when their ears stick out, but for thousands of adults, that trait can be the cause of embarrassment or anxiety. Ear pinning, or otoplasty, is a procedure to correct protruding ears (Promin Auris) so that both children and adults can regain their confidence. Otoplasty may involve repositioning the ears to create balance with other facial features and the correction of abnormalities may be addressed with this procedure as well.
A lot of attention is placed on people’s lips throughout their lives. Women are expected to have soft, voluptuous lips, while the social standard for men is thin to medium lips. We all know that having perfect lips is not something we’re all born with, but Dr. Nesmith can help you achieve the lips you most desire through lip augmentation or lip reduction. Lip enhancement techniques can be performed to bring size and fullness to thin lips, and for those who feel their lips are too big, reduction procedures are available to reduce the size and fullness. We can also address wrinkles around the mouth, drooping corners of the mouth, and repair defects due to genetics or birth.
If you’re unhappy with the shape of your chin, Nesmith Plastic Surgery Center can help through reshaping, implant and reduction surgical techniques. Chin surgery, or mentoplasty, can eliminate dimples or ridges in the chin that produce unique shapes that may be distracting or undesirable. And for patients who do not have a well-defined chin, implants are available to help fill out the area for a more distinguished look. A well-defined chin can also help you have a well-defined jaw bone, something that millions of people covet. Dr. Nesmith often performs chin surgery on patients who have undergone nose surgery in order to minimize or magnify the perceived size of the nose.
Moles are removed for a variety of reasons. Many people are born with moles, but it is possible for them to form as you get older. Exposure to the sun may also increase the appearance of moles. Although most moles are not cancerous, they may still be a burden. A mole can make people feel self-conscious and uncomfortable. Removing a mole can also lower the risk of skin cancer. Dr. Nesmith will discuss with you the different methods of treatment for removing your mole. No matter the size or shape of your mole, Nesmith Plastic Surgery Center can professionally remove it so you can stop worrying and stop trying to hide it.
Aging is inevitable. The neck is usually one of the first places where we show our age. Most times, neck lift surgery is sought out by individuals who are concerned by the aging signs in their neck. A sagging neck can be the result of genetics, age and excessive weight loss or weight gain. Neck Lift surgery is used to correct lose or sagging skin as well as improve the appearance of your neck. A neck lift can also restore your overall facial appearance. Dr. Nesmith offers neck lift surgery to improve the skin on your neck, leaving you looking and feeling much younger.
