Face is aesthetically the most prominent and visible part of the body. The aging signs also naturally show first on the face before they become obvious in other areas. Several facial cosmetic surgery procedures are available today to delay or reverse these signs of aging and support the overall youthful appearance.
Heredity factors, aging, sun exposure, illness and other causes may lead to the onset of facial wrinkles when an individual is in their 40’s. An experienced surgeon will recommend the appropriate facial procedures for people in this age group. The goal is to produce results that meet the patient’s aesthetic needs, while maintaining a natural look of the face.
Dr. Eric J. Yavrouian is an experienced, fellowship trained facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon. Dr. Yavrouian provides facial plastic surgery procedures to patients in their 40’s in Glendale, Pasadena, Burbank, Greater Los Angeles CA, and surrounding locations.
Facelift is the most comprehensive facial cosmetic surgery procedure designed to provide a subtle lift to the sagging facial skin and reduce wrinkles and fine lines in the lower two-thirds of the face. The surgeon will reduce excess skin from the face to provide a firmer, smoother facial look, and may also tighten underlying facial muscles and redistribute excess fat in the mid and lower face. Partial or mini facelift may be performed in some cases where the patient only needs very subtle improvements.
A furrowed or droopy appearance of the brows can make the face appear tired or old. Brow lift surgery can be performed to tighten loose skin and reduce fine lines between the brows and horizontal lines on the forehead. Brow lift may sometimes be combined with eyelid lift for more uniform looking results. Leading facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Yavrouian receives patients from Glendale, Pasadena, Burbank, Greater Los Angeles CA, and nearby areas for facelift surgery.
Ear reshaping surgery, clinically called otoplasty, is aimed at correcting the appearance of flappy ears that stick out too far from the face. Oversized or asymmetrical ears can be reduced in size to the make the ears proportionate to the other facial features. Ear reconstruction may also be performed if the patient suffers from a congenital ear shape defect or an ear injury.
Nose reshaping surgery or rhinoplasty is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in the US. Rhinoplasty can dramatically improve the size or shape of the nose, including narrowing or widening of the dorsum, reshaping large, flared or upturned nostrils, sharpening the nose tip, reducing a bump from the nose bridge, or straightening a crooked shaped nose. Rhinoplasty can also be performed to make functional improvements such as removing breathing obstructions along with cosmetic corrections.
Eyelid lift or blepharoplasty procedure can be performed on the lower or upper eyelids or both. The condition of ptosis can also be corrected along with an eyelid lift. Droopy upper eyelids, eye bags below the lower eyelids, dark circles and fine lines around the eyes can be improved with eyelid surgery.
