While these days there are more options than ever before when it comes to facial rejuvenation, the most popular and effective procedure for those with advanced signs of aging continues to be Face Lift Surgery. Face Lift Surgery can help create a younger, smoother and more energetic, natural looking result. Dr. Bruno and Dr. Brown have helped many men and women take years off their face with a Chevy Chase Face Lift Procedure.
During the Face Lift procedure excess skin is removed and the remaining skin is re-draped, so to speak, to eliminate the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Face Lift surgery is often combined with other facial rejuvenation procedures such as Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Lift), Brow Lift, or Nose Reshaping. If you are interested in learning more about this and other rejuvenatory procedures, we encourage you to contact our office to schedule your consultation today.
Smartlipo™ is the first laser assisted liposuction procedure that has FDA approval. It is ideal for removing localized fat deposits on the face and body. It utilizes the latest in laser technology that allows our plastic surgeons the capability of precise contouring with little to no recovery time for the patient. This laser assisted procedure is performed using a one millimeter cannula (tube) inserted just beneath the skin. A small laser fiber inside the cannula delivers targeted energy directly to the fat cells allowing the surgeon to suction them away with minimal effort. Simultaneously, the surrounding tissue tightens, resulting in an overall improvement.
Breast augmentation is among the most commonly performed cosmetic surgery procedures, a very popular procedure for women. A saline-filled or silicone gel-filled implant is inserted through small incisions either in the crease under the breast, around the nipple or through the armpit. The implant can be placed under the breast tissue or beneath the chest wall muscle. After surgery, breasts will appear “fuller” and more shapely in contour. Often, patients will elect to have a breast lift or mastopexy performed at the same time as the augmentation. This combination of procedures can increase both firmness and size.
