Richmond’s Nasal and Facial Plastic Surgery Specialists
Facial Plastic Surgeons are experts in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery of the face. Following four years of medical school, our doctors spent five to six years in surgical training, including four years dedicated to head and neck surgery and facial plastic surgery. By concentrating on the complex anatomy and physiology of the head and neck region, we can offer you solutions that are both beautiful and functional. We understand the nose, face and neck – inside and out.
Botox Cosmetic is most commonly used in the upper face to smooth the frown lines between the eyebrows, the smile lines at the crow’s feet, and the horizontal creases in the forehead. Comprehensive treatment of the upper face can actually elevate the eyebrows – sometimes called a “chemical brow lift.” Skillful placement in the lower face can be used to reshape the mouth, reduce bands in the neck, or shrink overactive muscles.
One of the earliest signs of aging is not excess skin, but the appearance of new wrinkles and hollows from loss of volume and elasticity. With modern injectable fillers, we can fill in these lines in your face and replace volume in as little as 30 minutes. Whether you have bags under your eyes, hollows in your cheeks, lines around the mouth, or thin, lifeless lips, we have the product and the skill to sculpt a younger looking you.
While Botox and fillers can take care of the larger wrinkles and hollows in the face, concurrent skin care is usually required to improve fine lines and blemishes on the surface. We work closely with our colleagues in dermatology and can help you develop a comprehensive skin care regimen. Products and services we offer include Latisse, Retin-A, Tri-Luma, microdermabrasion, chemical peels and others. At your consultation, we will evaluate your skin quality and make recommendations based on your skin type.
Is there something that you would like to improve about your appearance? Do you see signs of aging, or a facial feature that you find unattractive? We would like to help you. As specialists in plastic surgery of the head and neck, we offer endoscopic brow lifts, eyelid surgery, face lifts, nasal surgery (rhinoplasty), chin surgery, ear surgery, scar revision and countless other cosmetic facial procedures. You can trust your face to a facial plastic surgeon.
Reconstructive surgery includes facial procedures which are primarily performed for the treatment of an illness, injury or deformity rather than purely for appearance. With the exception of the brain, spine and eyes, our doctors are trained in the anatomy and diseases of all of the structures above the shoulders. We commonly evaluate and treat tumors on the face and neck, including skin cancer, as well as facial injuries and broken bones. Reconstruction of congenital deformities of the face, scar revisions, and rehabilitation of facial paralysis are within the training and experience of a facial plastic surgeon.
