Neck Lift

 

The neck and jaw are some of the first places that show visible signs of aging, as they begin to sag and become less defined. Neck lifts are performed to tighten the muscles and remove excess fat and skin in this area. This restores a more youthful, smooth look to the nexk and jaw.

 

Chin Augmentation

 

Chin augmentation can be done to change the shape and look. This procedure is usually performed in conjunction with a neck lift to produce a noticeable difference in the appearance of the face and jaw line.

Face and Neck Cosmetic Surgery Procedures in Baltimore

Thursday, January 16th, 2014

Here at The University of Maryland’s Center for Cosmetic Surgery, we offer numerous face and neck cosmetic surgery procedures which target precise areas of the face in order to produce noticeable results. The face and neck cosmetic surgery procedures we offer in Baltimore include:

 

Eyelid Surgery – If you have issues with bags under your eyes or drooping upper lids, eyelid surgery can restore a more youthful appearance to your face. This surgery is often done along with other facial procedures such as a facelift.

 

Browlift – Forehead wrinkles become more noticeable as you age naturally. A browlift ca minimize the appearance of these wrinkles as well as correct sagging or uneven eyebrows.

 

Facelift – Often as you age the whole face will appear to droop and look less full. This is because of a combination of factors, include gravity, exposure to the sun, stress, and loss of hydration in the skin. A facelift can restore a youthful appearance to the face.

 

Nose Reshaping – More commonly known simply as a nose job, a nose reshaping is usually performed not only for form but for function as well. A nose job can correct a deviated septum, which can vastly improve the quality of living for the patient. Our goal is to create a natural nose that restores balance to the face.

The Benefits of Non-Surgical Facial Procedures

Thursday, November 7th, 2013

The University of Maryland Center for Cosmetic Surgery & Wellness offers non-surgical facial procedures such as the injection of Juvederm and Restylane gels, as well as chemical peel procedures. If you’re hesitant to have cosmetic surgery done on your face, you might be interested in considering these options for the following reasons:

 

Non-Invasive

 

Gels and chemical peels are non-invasive, which makes them viable options for people who aren’t comfortable with the idea of a full-scale surgery. Gels are injected via a needle, but there are no cuts or incisions made in the skin. In addition, many gels come with lidocain, a numbing agent which numbs the area of injection so you don’t even feel anything.

 

Recovery Time

 

Because these procedures are non-invasive, the recovery time from them is much less than recovery from surgery, which means you don’t have to take time out of your busy life to get the procedures you want.

 

Results

 

The results of these procedures can be seen immediately, and they last for a long time too. Gel injections generally give the face a fuller, more youthful appearance for up to a year after the date of the injection. You can also choose to have the same procedure done once the effects of the gel have worn off.

Interesting Facts About Cosmetic Surgery From UMD’s Center for Cosmetic Surgery and Wellness

Wednesday, June 19th, 2013

Cosmetic surgery has surprisingly been around for as far back as the early nineteenth century. During World War I, cosmetic surgery was performed on injured soldiers to reconstruct parts of their body that were damaged due to combat. The surgeries that existed at that time included such procedures as skin grafting and surgery on body parts such as a broken jaw or a displaced nose.

Since the WWI days, cosmetic surgery has become much more advanced and now includes repair of damage and improvements to facial features and the overall appearance of your face. It initially was just used for people who were born disfigured, but now it sees widespread application across a whole variety of different cosmetic applications.

Here are a few interesting facts about cosmetic surgery (from a 2011 study):

  • 13.8 million Americans had cosmetic procedures done. The majority of those procedures were minimally invasive. 
  • Nearly $10.4 billion was spent on cosmetic procedures. 91% of those procedures were performed on women.
  • Patients who live in the Pacific and Mountain regions had the most cosmetic surgery done, with the number coming in at about 3.9 million.

Face Procedures: Browlift, Facelift and Eyelid Surgery

Monday, June 10th, 2013

There’s an old cliche saying that states eyes are the windows into the soul. A lot of important, meaningful human connection starts with eye contact. The eyes are what we see with and what people look at when they look at our faces. If you have a condition that has developed around your eyes or if you have puffy dark bags that you’d like to remove, University Of Maryland’s Center for Cosmetic Dentistry can help.

We offer many face procedures for the neck and chin including (but not limited to): Browlifts, facelifts and eyelid surgery. If you’re wondering what some of these procedures pertain to, here’s a brief overview:

  • Eyelid Surgery - This surgery, also known as Blepharoplasty can help reduce bagginess from your lower eyelids and remove excess skin from your upper eyelids. This procedure is especially useful to older people who may have sagging eyelids that obstruct their vision. This is due to the process in which eyelids age; as they age it reduces the elasticity they have. The recovery time is relatively short and the end result will leave you looking youthful.
  • Facelift (Rhytidectomy) - A facelift or a Rhytidectomy reduces the visible amount of wrinkles caused by aging. The skin is lifted off of the face and then tightened to give a youthful, new look. A facelift can reduce the signs of aging by a good amount. It is the most extensive way to get rid of unsightly wrinkles and transform you back into a younger version of yourself.
  • Browlift (Coronoplasty) - Also known as Coronoplasty, a browlift is a common facial rejuvenation treatment often combined with a facelift and/or a blepharoplasty. This procedure can help remove or minimize unsightly lines or wrinkles on the forehead, as well as sagging or uneven eyebrows. It can help remove age lines from your forehead and make your face look more wrinkle-free and younger.

Facial Aesthetics from University of Maryland’s Center for Cosmetic Surgery & Wellness

Monday, March 18th, 2013
A person’s identity is often linked to their facial features. Their concepts of beauty and attractiveness are also usually linked to facial features. This is true so much so that there is a ratio of facial features considered to be the “Golden Ratio.” The National Institute of Health recently found “new” golden ratios, stating that the distance of a face’s vertical distance between the eyes and the mouth would be approximately 36% of its length, and the horizontal distance between the eyes would be approximately 46% of the face’s width. There is serious science behind the theory of facial proportionality and beauty.

UMD Natural Beauty

While there may be a scientific standard for facial beauty, at UMD’s Center for Cosmetic Surgery & Wellness, we understand that each face is different. And we also understand that there are certain features that can give a face its own unique beauty. The aging process However, if there are certain features on your face that you’re not happy with, we can help you with a number of facial aesthetic surgeries dealing with the face and the neck. Here are just a few of the face and neck procedures that we offer:

 

  • Eyelid (Blepharoplasty) - Eyelid surgery can help correct drooping upper lids and puffy bags below your eyes. The recovery time is relatively short and provides a youthful and rested appearance. It can be done alone or in conjunction with other facial surgical procedures such as a facelift or a browlift.

 

  • Browlift (Coronoplasty) - A browlift, also known as a forehead lift, is a common facial rejuvenation treatment often combined with a facelift and/or a blepharoplasty. This procedure can help remove or minimize unsightly lines or wrinkles on the forehead, as well as sagging or uneven eyebrows. It can also give a different ratio for your face.

 

  • Facelift (Rhytidectomy) - While a facelift can’t stop the aging process, it does rejuvenate and turn the clock back. As people age, the effects of gravity, exposure to the sun, and the stresses of daily life begin to show. A face lift can address drooping and sagging as well as loss of volume. This is a procedure which can be done alone or in conjunction with other procedures.

 

A more in-depth look on Rhytidectomy: it is the most extensive way to remove or reduce the appearance of wrinkles and sagging of the face caused by age. The patient’s skin is literally lifted off the face so that the skin and the tissues beneath can be tightened and the skin can be repositioned smoothly over the face. The surgery usually only takes a few hours. And you may be able to go to your Maryland home that day, but sometimes patients spend one night in the hospital.
