Facial Plastic Surgery and Rejuvenation Newport Beach | Orange County
As the most visible part of the body, the face serves as your window of expression to the rest of the world. Unfortunately, age and other factors may cause your face to display an emotion or age that does not match the way that you feel. By caring for your face through any of the facial procedures offered by Dr. Garrett A. Wirth, you can ensure that your face represents your youthful energy as much as possible.
As one of the most iconic procedures in plastic surgery, nose surgery may also have the greatest impact on the face. Also known as rhinoplasty, nose surgery may be performed for a variety of reasons, including aesthetic concerns, reconstructive needs following a trauma, or medical conditions such as impaired breathing. The adjustment of the nose may provide proportion to the facial features, bringing out the best balance to the face.
The brow lift procedure, or forehead lift, is designed to minimize horizontal furrows and vertical lines that may appear between your eyebrows, decreasing the appearance of stress and age from your face and giving your expression a more positive rested appearance.
Dermabrasion is the surgical resurfacing of the outer layers of skin using mechanical removal. This procedure scrapes away the skin’s external layers with minimal discomfort, allowing new skin to grow in with fewer fine wrinkles, scarring or abnormal pigmentation.
Ear surgery, or otoplasty, is the adjustment of the angle at which ears emerge from the head so that they have a more natural and less protruding appearance. Commonly performed on children but equally effective on adults, the ear surgery procedure may also include size or shape adjustments to provide balance and improve facial proportions.
Surgical repair of the earlobe is often necessary following long-term use of heavy earrings or accidents involving earrings being pulled from the ear. In this procedure, Dr. Wirth surgically reconstructs the earlobe and may be used to create an earlobe that is meant to be unpierced or one that is reinforced for future re-piercing.
Endoscopic Brow Lift
The endoscopic brow lift procedure is a modern development in facial plastic surgery that utilizes endoscopic technology to shrink the larger brow lift incision down to a few small, well-hidden incisions behind the hair line. As a minimally invasive procedure, recovery time is improved and discomfort greatly lessened.
Also known as blepharoplasty, the eyelid surgery procedure may be performed on either the upper or lower eyelids to decrease the appearance of puffiness and wrinkles. This procedure may also be performed for medical reasons such as when drooping eyelids interfere with the field of vision.
Often considered the classic procedure of plastic surgery, the facelift may be performed in a wide range of intensities using a number of techniques. The facelift is a comprehensive procedure that may rejuvenate all areas of the face, smoothing wrinkles, eliminating excess fat deposits and transforming the facial appearance.
Facial Fat Grafting
One of the most natural procedures in plastic surgery, facial fat grafting involves the use of a patient’s own fat to treat loss of facial volume. This procedure has a dual benefit, as the fat is taken from trouble areas in the midsection, purified, and then reinjected into the face by Dr. Wirth in a deliberate and careful manner. This restores a youthful tone to the facial features while diminishing the appearance of excess fat in the midsection.
Lip augmentation utilizes a range of different fillers or fat to give a boost to the lips and make them appear softer, fuller and more appealing. With many different fillers available, the right filler will be selected after consultation with Dr. Wirth to boost the lips for the short or long term.
The neck lift procedure greatly improves the appearance of the neck, and may be utilized to address a number of embarrassing neck problems, including a double chin, a turkey wattle, or the appearance of jowls. Dr. Wirth may perform neck lifts using different techniques and incision lengths to provide the best overall treatment for the your individual goals.
Liposuction is a minimally invasive but maximally effective procedure that involves the removal of excess fat deposits through gentle suctioning. Only very small, well-hidden incisions are necessary for this procedure, but it may have a dramatic effect on the appearance of the face.
