Esthetic Facial Surgery
Facial esthetics describes the proportional harmony of the face and its features. Disharmony may result from congenital deformities, abnormal growth of the face during puberty, or, the effects of sun exposure, gravity and the process of maturation. The majority of disharmony results from problems involving both the facial skeleton and overlying skin and soft tissues.
Dr. Zebovitz demonstrates expertise in evaluating both issues, provides comprehensive therapies and solutions to address your areas of concern. This perspective is critical to restoring harmony and vitality to the face.
Dr. Zebovitz performs the following options:
Neck Liposuction and/or Suspension Surgery each restore youthful contour and definition to the upper neck and jaw line.
Mid-face and/or Brow Lift Surgery elevates cheeks and brow areas that have dropped to a lower level over time.
Cheek, Chin and/or Jaw Line Implants provide underlying support for the skin and soft tissues and restore harmony and proportion.
Note: These procedures are combined with corrective jaw surgery to fully restore contour and harmony to the proportion of the face.
Facial Trauma Correction
Dr. Zebovitz and his skilled, sensitive staff demonstrate top caliber skills in managing the effects of facial trauma.
Types & Treatment:
Soft tissue injuries include those to the skin and gums, such as facial lacerations, and are typically repaired with sutures. Dr. Zebovitz takes special care to produce favorable cosmetic results, while assessing potential nerve or glandular injury.
Bony injuries include fractures of the facial bones. Treatment is determined by assessing factors such as the location and severity of the injury, as well as the patient’s age and general health. One option includes wiring the jaw closed, allowing the bones to heal, just as if a broken bone were placed in a cast. Another option, called “rigid fixation”, involves stabilizing just a concentrated area of the jaw, reducing recovery time for patients.
Special region injuries include those of the eyes, facial nerves, salivary glands and isolated injuries to the teeth, and may require a team of practitioners working in tandem. Typically, oral surgeons treat fractures of the bones that support teeth, or by replanting teeth that have been dislodged or knocked out.
