Blepharoplasty

Your eyes are the focal point of your face. The aging process can result in wrinkles, fatty bulges around your eyes, and a drooping of the brow. These changes deprive your eyes of their rested youthful appearance and cause them to look smaller and tired. As you age, the skin around your eyes becomes lax and stretches, tending to narrow your eyes and in some cases impair your vision. The fat, which normally sits around the eyeball, herniates through weaknesses in the fine membranes, resulting in visible lumps or bulges. While these changes are inherited in some cases, for most people they start to develop in their early 30s. Blepharoplasty is designed to remove excess eyelid skin and protruding fat in order to accentuate the beauty of your eyes.

Chemical Peel

There are many things that can damage the skin on your face, from the sun to acne. One of the most non-invasive ways to rejuvenate your skin is to have a chemical peel. Chemical peels can be performed on the face or anywhere on the body. There are three types of chemcial peels: a light chemical peel, a medium chemical peel, and a heavy chemical peel.

Cosmetic Fillers

Several cosmetic fillers - including BOTOX, RADIESSE, Xeomin, and Belotaro - are available through CEENTA. Cosmetic fillers are substances like collagen and hyaluronic acid, found naturally in the tissues of the body, which are injected into skin areas to restore volume and suppleness.

Drooping Eyelid (Ptosis)

There are several reasons an eyelid might droop. Some babies are born with drooping eyelids - also known as ptosis - in one or both eyelids. Pediatric ptosis requires a detailed eyelid examination and treatment generally depends on the function of the eyelid muscles. Ptosis can occur later in life if the muscles or ligaments that normally raise the eyelid are weakened by injury or disease. Sometimes the drooping is a result of damage to the nerves that control the eyelid muscles. Most ptosis just happens with aging. As a person ages, the skin and muscles of the eyelids stretch and weaken. Sometimes, previous eye surgery hastens this change because the instruments used to keep the eye open during surgery can stretch the eyelid a bit.

Eyebrow Repair

Brow ptosis is a drooping or sagging eyebrow. As we age, our eyebrows begin to droop, which results in an angry, worried or tired appearance. Frequently performed at the same time as a blepharoplasty and often through the same eyelid incision, brow elevation (also known as a brow lift or forehead lift) surgery is a way to elevate and stabilize the droopy eyebrows. The Endoscopic Brow Lift is considered a “minimally invasive” approach to brow rejuvenation as it can result in less swelling and a speedier recovery.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Although lasers have been utilized in medicine for many years, new technology has allowed us to predictably and precisely smooth and rejuvenate aged and sun-damaged skin. Laserbrasion is indicated for the softening/removal of facial wrinkles, the elimination of superficial sun or age spots, the camouflaging of scars (whether secondary to injury, acne, chicken pox, etc.), or the improvement of one’s overall facial complexion. The laser-treated skin is removed in sequential layers to achieve the desired goal of surgery. The initial pass results in the removal of the top layer of skin (epidermis), while deeper passes extend into the lower skin layer (dermis) for tightening of the collagen and the elimination of abnormal skin pigmentation. The advantage of this technique includes no significant bleeding and minimal post-operative pain. The laserbrasion procedure is often used in conjunction with “lifting procedures” (facelift, eyelid surgery, or browlift) to smooth as well as support the sagging tissues.

Otoplasty

Otoplasty is the process for reconstructing damaged, deformed, or missing outer ears due to a congenital condition or an accident. The size, shape and natural position of the ear is an inherited characteristic. As the ears form, they develop several natural folds. If development is incomplete, a deformed or protruding ear will result. Fortunately, we can reposition prominent or protruding ears closer to the head with otoplasty. Most individuals undergo this surgery during the early school years, ages 5-7, but otoplasty can be performed at any age, even adolescence or adulthood. The visual improvement with this type of plastic surgery is usually dramatic.

Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is plastic surgery of the nose, designed to reshape and reconstruct it because of congenital issues, respiratory concerns, or traumatic damage. Plastic surgery can improve the appearance as well as the function of the nose. The surgeon precisely removes excess bone and cartilage, reshaping or “sculpting” the nose. This operation is performed for many reasons: to make a more attractive nose, to repair defects from an injury, or to correct an internal deformity that blocks normal breathing or causes headaches and repeated sinus infections.

Rhytidectomy

A rhytidectomy, or facelift, is a plastic surgery procedure designed to make people look younger. It is often performed in conjunction with blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery. Different types of facelifts exist, mostly due to the type of incision and what area of the face is being treated. A consultation with your doctor will determine what kind of rhytidectomy is right for you.

Skin Health Restoration

People looking to achieve younger and healthier-looking skin spend billions of dollars each year. Many of these individuals are disappointed by a lack of good results. Improving your skin’s appearance on a long-term basis requires more than a quick, topical application to “cover up” blemishes or wrinkles. It requires a realization that your skin is an ever-changing, ever-growing organ that is constantly replacing itself. The correction of skin problems is not achieved by covering them up, but by working with the skin to restore its natural, healthy state. Conventional “skin care” creams and lotions are unable to deliver their ingredients to an effective depth, and for that reason they are therapeutically weak. They may give the illusion or the feel of improving some skin problems, but most of their action is wasted on the surface. In short, they cannot restore skin health.

Upper & Lower Eyelid Surgery

This surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is performed in order to remove or reposition tissues in the upper and lower eyelid. One of the most common cosmetic surgeries performed in the United States is an upper lid blepharoplasty, which involves removal of skin, muscle and/or fat. This procedure can be either functional or cosmetic.
