Patients often come to TOC seeking surgery for baggy or drooping eyelids only to discover that a brow lift is more appropriate. It can be easy to overlook this underlying condition, as problems with the eyebrow may be most noticeable in their effect on the eyelid. With age, ligaments suspending our brow can relax and stretch, causing it to sag. TOC surgeons are expert at identifying the correct cause and treatment in these cases.
Ear Reshaping (Otoplasty)
Approximately 5% of children in the U.S. are born with excessively prominent ears. This condition can affect a child’s emotional and psychologic development and impact self-image and self-confidence into adulthood. It can be especially difficult for individuals with short hair or for those who wish to wear their hair back. Otoplasty is a relatively straightforward outpatient procedure that can easily correct prominent ears.
Eyelid Lift (Blepharoplasty)
An eyelid lift, or blepharoplasty, can dramatically improve a tired or aged appearance or correct a disorder of the eyelid. For patients with baggy eyes or drooping eyelids, we remove excess skin and tissue from around the eyes to reveal an invigorated and more youthful appearance. It is one of the most popular aesthetic procedures performed in the United States.
Facelift & Necklift
With age, simple forces of gravity can bring about changes that exaggerate the appearance of jowls, and cause skin on the neck to sag. Individual genetics can also cause or contribute to these undesirable conditions. There are a few non-surgical options that may achieve limited results, but they don’t have the potential to achieve the natural-looking and long lasting results that surgical lift can provide.
Bone structure plays a critical role in facial attractiveness. The TOC surgical team has advanced training in facial construction and the desirable proportions of facial structures. Our surgeons’ keen understanding of the proper balance of eyes, nose, jaw, cheekbones, and face shape consistently yields extraordinarily natural and aesthetically pleasing results.
With age we all experience some degree of loss in soft tissue of the face. Youthful contours fade with time. Facial features sag and droop as they succumb to gravity’s pull. One of the most aesthetically pleasing and natural-appearing ways to achieve a youthful and invigorated appearance is by restoring volume to facial features.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
The fractional CO2 laser has revolutionized the treatment of skin affected by age, environment and trauma. It precisely and effectively smoothes wrinkles and removes spots and blemishes. With our state-of-the-art laser resurfacing technology, treatments are quicker and gentler than ever before.
The nose is the central point of focus on the face. It sits in the middle, balancing the aesthetics of the face. TOC surgeons know every individual is unique, but also understands mathematical formulas that help define the most desired nose shape associated with various ethnic identities. When the nose is out of proportion to the rest of the face, it can detract from other positive attributes. Stunning eyes and lips can appear less beautiful when paired with a disproportionate nose.
A chemical peel involves the application of an exfoliating agent of precisely determined strength, causing shedding of a predictable, uniform and calculated thickness of damaged skin. This stimulates regeneration of the skin with a more healthful, youthful appearance. With an expertly applied chemical peel, you can expect a marked improvement of tone, color and overall texture of the skin.
