Face

Chin Implants

Chin implants provide balance to the facial features and improve the profile. By placing a biocompatible implant in the lower jaw, patients can create a stronger chin and even lengthen the entire face. The chin implant procedure is ideal for patients with a weak chin and/or prominent nose.

Droopy Eyelid Correction

Ptosis (droopiness) is a common condition that can affect the upper eyelid of one or both eyes as a result of aging, a congenital defect, muscle deformity or neurological disorder. This condition can occur in patients of all ages, but is most common in older patients and will likely continue to worsen with age.

Treatment for this condition usually involves eyelid surgery, known as blepharoplasty. This procedure involves lifting the eyelid and reattaching it to a higher location on the face.

Ear Surgery (Otoplasty)

Ear surgery for children or adults can set prominent ears back closer to the head and reduce the size of large ears. Surgery may also be helpful for “lop ear,” “cupped ear” and “shell ear,” large or stretched earlobes, and lobes with creases and wrinkles. The procedure lasts from two to three hours and may be performed in a hospital, office-based facility or an outpatient surgery center under general or local anesthesia.

Facelift

Dr. Andrew Amunategui, M.D. | Chin Implants | Eyelid CorrectionA facelift can be combined with a browlift, eyelid surgery or nose reshaping for more dramatic results, or it can be restricted to the neck (necklift) if the patient’s problems center there. Incisions are made in inconspicuous places such as behind the hairline and in natural folds of the face and ears, and scars fade to near invisibility in time. Results of a facelift do not last forever, but in another sense, the effects are permanent; years later, your face will continue to look better than if you had never had the procedure.

Fat Transfer

SEMI-PERMANENT VOLUME ENHANCEMENT

Working in a similar fashion to cosmetic facial fillers, autologous fat transfer can be used to “fill” deep lines and wrinkles, smooth facial scars, restore facial volume and augment the cheeks, chin, breasts, and buttocks. A special liposucti on technique is used to harvest fat from areas of the body where an excess exists. The fat is then injected into the face using a micro-injection technique. Results can last up to several years or longer.

Areas: eyes, temples, cheeks, chin, jawline, deep facial wrinkles and scars, breast, buttocks, and hands.

Forehead Lift (Browlift)

Browlifts can revitalize drooping or lined foreheads, helping you to look less angry, sad or tired. Using either traditional or minimally invasive (endoscopic) methods, the muscles above the eyes are altered to smooth lines and raise the eyebrows for a more youthful appearance. The procedure is often combined with other operations such as blepharoplasty and facelifts to improve the look of the eyes and other areas of the face.

Neck Lift

The neck may sag as a result of aging or weight loss, and is often affected before the face. Loose neck muscles can lead to an appearance of bands on the neck or drastic drooping of the skin. A neck lift is a surgical procedure that can smooth and tighten the skin on the neck and provide a more toned and youthful appearance. The results of this procedure offer a drastic improvement to the appearance of the neck and subtle changes to overall appearance. A neck lift may be performed alongside a facelift, or may be performed alone, after which your friends and family may not even realize that a surgical procedure was performed.

Nose Surgery (Rhinoplasty)

Dr. Andrew Amunategui, M.D. | Chin Implants | Eyelid CorrectionOne of the most common plastic surgery procedures, rhinoplasty is performed to reshape, reduce or augment a person’s nose, remove a hump, narrow nostril width, change the angle between the nose and the mouth, or to correct injury, birth defects, or other problems that affect breathing. Rhinoplasty is usually an outpatient procedure performed under either local or general anesthesia and lasts one to two hours.
