As we age, the supporting structures of our faces lose firmness causing skin and underlying tissues and muscles to sag. This sagging skin, along with excess fat that accumulates, leads to the creation of deep folds and creases on the skin that give the appearance of older age. A facelift is a surgical procedure designed to restore a rejuvenated look to the face by manipulating the underlying tissues and muscles to tone and restructure them, remove accumulated fat and excess skin, and stretch skin where necessary to restore firmness and definition to the face. An Ocala facelift performed by Dr. Tyrone can improve any unwanted signs of aging on the lower, middle, and upper areas of the face.
Forehead lifts, also known as brow lifts, are surgical procedures that aim to reduce and revert the signs of aging that occur above and around the eyebrows. The forehead is an area with constant muscle movement and the continual contractions tend to cause horizontal creases with age. Frown lines are also a common occurrence in between the eyebrows for the same reason. Through a forehead lift in cosmetic plastic surgery in Ocala, performed by Dr. Tyrone will raise the forehead skin through a minimally invasive surgery to reduce and even remove creases and wrinkles. A brow lift can also improve sagging eyebrows by raising them to give a more youthful and lively appearance to the face.
Along with the face, the neck is one of the first areas to show significant aging. It is common for skin to lose its flexibility and sag around the neck creating unpleasant contours. Fat also tends to accumulate under the chin, and jowls form on the sides of the jawline. Through a neck lift, also known as a lower rhytidectomy, Dr. Tyrone can address the neck and jawline to provide smoother contours for a more youthful appearance. An Ocala plastic surgery neck lift to improve the neck and lower jaw consists of incisions under the chin and around the ears.
Nose surgery, or rhinoplasty, is a common procedure and a great way to improve facial harmony by balancing the proportions of the nose to the rest of the face. Through a rhinoplasty in Ocala, FL, Dr. Tyrone can make either subtle or drastic changes to a patient’s nose depending on their desires. A nose surgery can remove bumps on the bridge of the nose, level nostrils so they are even, narrow nostrils, refine the nose by removing cartilage, and make the overall nose more symmetrical in relation to the patient’s face.
Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is a cosmetic surgery designed to rejuvenate the eyelids. The eyes are among the first facial features to accumulate excess skin, fat and wrinkles. Problems with the eyelids can include bags under the eyes, fat accumulation that leads to puffy eyelids, and drooping lower and upper eyelids. In some cases, sagging skin in the eyelids can even impair vision. The eyelid procedure will depend on the patient’s individual case but can range from minimal procedures that don’t leave external scarring to incisions that will be concealed in the eyes’ natural folds. Whether it is to improve appearance or to correct functional issues, Dr. Tyrone can perform the necessary eyelid surgery for a rejuvenated result you’ll love.
Otoplasty, also known as ear surgery, is designed to correct any defect in the structure of the ear. It can be used to pin prominent ears back closer to the head, alter the shape of the ears, and reduce the size of large ears. The overall goal in otoplasty is to achieve aesthetic harmony between the ears and the face. Dr. Tyrone commonly performs otoplasty procedures and can provide dramatic results. Otoplasty can address both ear defects developed from birth or caused by injury. While surgery time depends on the patient’s individual situation and extensiveness of procedure, otoplasty is usually performed on an outpatient basis.
The size and shape of the chin play a big role in facial harmony. If you have a recessed, “weak” chin, a “double chin” or are concerned about the size of your nose in relation to the rest of your face, consider chin plastic surgery in Ocala. During a relatively short and simple procedure, implants can be placed on the existing chin bone and sculpted for a custom fit. This chin enhancement surgery can significantly improve the contours of the chin, neck and jawline. Call Dr. Tyrone for more information about chin implants in Ocala or to schedule an appointment.
