Conveniently located to serve Baton Rouge
I offer a wide range of cosmetic surgery procedures for the face including: facelift, eyelid lift (blepharoplasty), brow/forehead lift, and cosmetic ear surgery. Facial surgery can be an effective way to improve appearance and boost self-confidence as our face is how we interact and communicate with each other.
A facelift is a surgical procedure to improve visible signs of aging in the face and neck. Facelift procedures vary widely, but all serve to tighten and elevate the tissues of the face and neck, restoring a more youthful appearance and contour.
A neck lift removes localized fat deposits under the chin, corrects muscle laxity, and may be combined with neck skin tightening procedures to significantly improve neck contour.
A forehead lift is performed to treat upper facial and orbital aging. It may be performed in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures to achieve a more harmonious facial appearance. A forehead or brow lift can raise the eyebrows and reduce forehead wrinkles.
Eyelid Procedures (Blepharoplasty)
Blepharoplasy or eyelid surgery is a very popular surgery for correction of upper eyelid hooding, drooping eyelids and eyebrows, bags and dark circles in the lower eyelid, and removal of bulging fat pockets in the upper and lower lids. This surgery includes removal of excess fat, skin, and muscle to give patients a rested and refreshed appearance.
I perform my upper and lower blepharoplasty surgery in our surgery center or at many local hospitals under light sedation with local anesthetics. This is a relatively quick procedure and is performed on an outpatient basis. Read more about eyelid lift surgery
Otoplasty (Ear Pinning)
Otoplasty, is a procedure used to improve the appearance of protruding ears. The ears are repositioned by reshaping the cartilage (supporting tissue usually utilizing incisions placed behind the ears to conceal scars.
Ear pinning can be performed on children as early as age five or six. Adults may also have their ears position improved, and there is no upper age limit for this surgery.
