Custom, Natural Looking Facelift Surgeries
Over the years, your skin begins to lose the elasticity that was there in your youth. This can cause fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin and other telltale signs of aging that many people would rather not see! There are a variety of ways to restore a more youthful look to your skin through plastic surgery, including Rhinoplasty, brow, eyelid and neck lifts, traditional facelifts and more. If you are ready to rejuvenate your look and achieve a more radiant and youthful glow, here are a few of the procedures available from Dr. Babis Rammos, a trusted and Board Certified plastic surgeon in the Peoria area.
A facelift is a surgical procedure that focuses on creating a more youthful profile by reducing sagging in the face or jowls while also reducing loose skin and excess fat around the chin and neck area. Dr. Rammos may also recommend a facelift surgery to reduce or eliminate the fold lines that can appear between the nose and the corner of your mouth, also known as smile lines. Plastic surgeons will often combine a facelift procedure with fat transfers or fillers to help plump up skin that has lost volume over time.
The excess skin that tends to gather along the jowls and under the chin can be a source of frustration and embarrassment, often becoming a sign of age that it can be difficult to hide with cosmetics. Whether caused by heredity or gravity, the lack of buoyancy in the skin can be restructured by the talented plastic surgery team behind Dr. Rammos.
Have you noticed that your eyes don’t feel quite as “open” as they used to when you were younger? Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a safe procedure that can be used to rejuvenate the area surrounding the eye. Eyelid surgery can treat individuals that are bothered by loose or sagging skin that is disturbing the natural contour of the eye, fatty deposits or puffiness under the eye, excess skin and even fine wrinkles around the eye. The muscles surrounding our eyes stretch as we age, which can cause severely sagging skin that can even have a negative impact on your vision.
Squinting into the sun, frowning and even smiling can all leave their marks behind on your face — creating wrinkles between the eyes, horizontally across the forehead and vertically on the bridge of your nose and between your eyes. Eyebrows can appear to droop over time, slowly creeping down the face and leaving eyes looking deeper and slightly hooded. With a brow lift, Dr. Rammos is able to bring your eyebrows back to a more alert and youthful position, resulting in eyes that appear more open while reducing or eliminating deeper wrinkles.
If you are interested in enhancing your facial harmony or restructuring your nose, rhinoplasty may be an option to consider. Rhinoplasty, or nose reshaping, can correct problems with impaired breathing as well as helping improve the symmetry of your nose, correct any visible humps or depressions on the nose and correct a deviated septum. Patients often ask questions about the recovery time from rhinoplasty, something that truly depends on the type of surgery that is recommended by Dr. Rammos.
