Traditional and Mini Facelift
Despite a youthful outlook on life, your face can show the effects of gravity, stress, aging, and sun exposure. Over time, the jawline goes slack, forming jowls; deep creases form between the nose and mouth; and skin on the neck becomes creased and fleshy. Today’s techniques, however, make it easier than ever to regain your youthful look. To accomplish rejuvenation of the mid to lower portion of the face, consider facelift surgery or a less invasive technique known as the mini facelift performed at our Sacramento practice, near Roseville. Facelift surgery is the perfect way to turn back the clock and help you look and feel great.
A neck lift can be an ideal option for individuals who are experiencing sagging, excess skin that is compromising the neck’s appearance. This treatment can also be effective for “neck bands” that often form from one side of the neck to the other. With neck lift surgery, Dr. Perry can reduce the excess skin and tighten the remainder to renew neck contours and create a smoother, more youthful look. This treatment can also enhance definition along the chin and jawline.
Restore volume, smooth creases and fine lines, and enhance youthfulness using fatty tissue harvested from areas of excess on your own body. Fat transfer, also known as fat grafting, uses unwanted fatty tissue to plump and rejuvenate the face. This technique can be done alone or as part of a combination treatment with a facelift to achieve more comprehensive results. Only a small amount of tissue is typically required to obtain the desired outcome, and the fatty tissue can come from virtually anywhere you choose. Fat transfer does require liposuction to be used to collect the tissue, which many patients find to be an added benefit of this approach.
Browlift (Forehead Lift)
One of the first things to drop on your face is the brow. Heavy brows can make one not only feel tired or cross but appear less energetic as well. Looking older than you feel can affect the way others perceive you and your energy level. Let Chrysalis Cosmetics help you regain your vibrant appearance through optimization of your facial aesthetics. When considering rejuvenation of the eyes and face think brows as well. Smooth out those forehead lines and crow’s feet in the periorbital region with brow lift surgery. This procedure is considered cosmetic, however some insurance companies may even cover the operational costs if extreme eyelid hooding is obscuring your upper visual field.
Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)
As you age, sagging eyelids and puffy under-eye bags can make you look much older than you feel. Don’t let aging features hold you back! Regain your youthful outlook on life through eyelid surgery, a procedure that restores a smooth, alert appearance to the eye area by excising excess skin, fat, and muscle from the upper eyelid and sometimes the lower eyelid as well. While mainly a cosmetic procedure, health insurance may cover the cost of blepharoplasty if extreme hooding of the upper eyelids is obscuring vision.
Prominent or overly large ears that sit out of proportion with the face can be a source of discomfort and even embarrassment for many people. Otoplasty, or ear reshaping, can reposition the ears at a more appealing angle or adjust their size to create a more aesthetic outcome. Otoplasty can be performed on children as young as 7 or 8 (once their ears have fully developed) as well as adolescents and adults. Dr. Perry utilizes advanced techniques to minimize signs of surgery and to deliver a beautiful result.
Pain Relief with PL Touch Laser
To make healing as quick and as comfortable as possible, we offer PL Touch laser therapy. This advanced treatment uses low-level laser energy to boost cell turnover, enhance tissue healing, and reduce inflammation and swelling. The result can be a more pleasant and less painful recovery. The PL Touch laser can be used following facelift surgery and other procedures to aid in your post-operative experience. The non-invasive handheld device delivers bursts of heatless light into the affected area, penetrating deep within the skin to minimize pain and provide greater comfort while you recuperate.
