Facial Surgery Procedures
Brow Lift & Forehead Lift
The brow lift, also known as forehead lift, is an excellent procedure for rejuvenating the eye and forehead area and may be combined with other facial procedures. At his surgery center in La Jolla, San Diego, Dr. Singer offers several brow lift variations that can produce stunning results.
Buccal Fat Contouring / Cheek Reduction
Some individuals are self-conscious about the appearance of their cheeks, feeling that their cheeks look round or chubby. These “cherub cheeks” or “chipmunk cheeks” can result from a variety of conditions. Young individuals may temporarily have full faces (“baby fat”) that will naturally slim with time. Others simply have a genetic predisposition to carry fat in their faces, and finally some have full faces as a result of their general body type. The Singer Surgical Centre offers buccal fat removal, also called cheek reduction surgery, as a solution to those who want to reduce the size of their cheeks. Contouring of these fat pads can slim the cheeks and contour the face for a more chiseled and defined appearance.
Chin & Cheek Augmentation
Both chin and cheek augmentation create a new, natural look that is in harmony with your other facial features. A weak or recessive chin can be improved with a chin implant or non-surgically with microfat grafts. Similarly, malar augmentation can enhance flat cheeks.
Ear Surgery (Otoplasty)
Excessively large or protruding ears are often a source of ridicule, teasing, and embarrassment. Aesthetic ear surgery, called otoplasty, can reshape the “outstanding” ear by altering its size, position, or configuration. The improvement, which lasts a lifetime, usually results in less self-consciousness and greater self-confidence.
Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)
As we grow older, the skin begins to lose some of its elasticity, and the area around the eyes often begins to sag. These wrinkles, pouches beneath the eyes, and sagging upper eyelids can be greatly improved with eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty). Renowned throughout Southern California, Dr. Robert Singer has performed exceptional eyelid surgeries for many discriminating patients at his practice in La Jolla, San Diego.
Technically known as rhytidectomy, a facelift is a surgical procedure that smooths loose skin on the face and neck, tightens underlying tissue and muscles, and removes excess fat. It is one of the most sought-after and satisfying aesthetic surgical procedures in La Jolla and San Diego. A facelift can remove many, but usually not all, wrinkles and it can remove much of the sagging skin of the face and neck. It will give you a more youthful, fresher, and natural appearance.
As we age, our lips lose their fullness. The distance from the tip of the nose to the upper lip lengthens as gravity makes the upper lip descend. If you have always wanted fuller, lusher lips, or wish to bring back your once full lips, there is an increasing assortment of procedures that can give almost any woman more sensuous, pouty lips.
Microfat grafts, sometimes called fat grafting or fat injections, involve the extraction of fat from one area of the body with excess fat followed by injection of that fat into a part of the face that has lost volume. Microfat grafts are an alternative to dermal fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm, and Juvederm Voluma. Since your own tissue is used for the procedure, there is no danger of an allergic reaction to the injections.
Mini or Mid-Facelift
We live in a youth-oriented society with an emphasis on fitness and a youthful appearance. Patients who show early signs of aging in their 30s to 50s may attain a significant improvement and rejuvenation with less invasive, short-scar or limited-incision “maintenance” procedures such as a Mini Facelift or Mid Facelift. These less invasive face lift procedures diminish the progression of the signs of aging, and avoid the more extensive procedures that would be necessary later.
Neck lift surgery can create a rejuvenated appearance for people who have extra fullness in the neck area. At Dr. Singer’s plastic surgery center in La Jolla, he performs neck lift procedures for local residents in San Diego, as well as for discriminating patients worldwide.
Whether it is performed to correct breathing problems or to improve a cosmetic issue, rhinoplasty or nose surgery is one of the most popular facial plastic surgery procedures available. The goal of rhinoplasty is to reshape the nose in a way that is natural in appearance and in harmony with the other features of the face.
