Facial Surgery Q & A
What is facial surgery?
At Northeastern Plastic Surgery, Dr. Fodero offers a variety of facial surgeries to improve the appearance of your skin and facial features. These cosmetic procedures can help you look younger, make your features more symmetrical, and repair injuries from facial trauma. Dr. Fodero is a skilled surgeon who can hide incisions in your hairline or the natural folds and contours of your face.
What types of facial surgeries are available?
Dr. Fodero performs several facial surgeries to enhance different aspects of your appearance.
When signs of aging like wrinkles and loose skin are impacting your appearance, Dr. Fodero offers face-lift procedures that tighten your skin and restore your youthful, rested appearance. In addition to eliminating wrinkles, lines, and folds of loose skin, a face-lift can also tighten your facial muscles to reduce the effects of the loss of elasticity in your skin. Dr. Fodero can combine face-lifts with other facial surgeries to give you a rejuvenated appearance.
A brow-lift tightens the skin on your forehead, getting rid of furrows, wrinkles, and ridges that appear as your skin loses elasticity and can’t spring back to smoothness after you smile or frown. This procedure can take years off your appearance and leave you looking and feeling younger and refreshed.
Commonly referred to as eyelid surgery, blepharoplasty is a delicate surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fatty tissue from around your eyes. If you have drooping eyelids that make you look older or are interfering with your vision, Dr. Fodero can restore your eyelids and repair the effects of age or weight on the skin around your eyes.
If you want beautiful facial contours such as high cheek-bones or a defined chin or jawline, Dr. Fodero can provide facial implants to enhance your facial features. He tailors your facial implants to not only create the appearance you desire but also to ensure you have a natural look. Dr. Fodero has an exceptional eye for facial aesthetics and the skills and experience to deliver excellent results.
Fat transfer to the face
Maintain a youthful appearance with a fat transfer to the face, which evens out and adds volume to vertical lines between your eyebrows, horizontal forehead lines, scars, and wrinkles. Dr. Fodero transfers and purifies fat cells from your body and injected into your facial tissue in what’s called an autologous procedure. If you have hollow or gaunt areas around your temples or underneath your eyes, a fat transfer to the face can plump up those areas and give you a fresh look.
What should I expect during facial surgery?
Dr. Fodero performs facial surgeries using a general anesthetic so you sleep in comfort throughout your procedure. When you wake up, he provides personalized aftercare advice to ensure you recover quickly and safely. For example, you may need to keep your head elevated and apply cold compresses to minimize post-surgical swelling.
