Facial Combination Procedures
Harmony is one of the most important aspects of facial beauty and sometimes several aesthetic procedures (facial combination procedures) are planned to achieve a balanced, comprehensive rejuvenation. With nearly 30 years experience in facial aesthetic surgery, Dr. O’Connell will help you navigate through the many alternatives and formulate your own personalized plan designed to help you achieve your unique aesthetic goals without looking “pulled” or overdone. At The Aesthetic Center we have the ability to integrate advanced surgical techniques with the latest non-invasive procedures all in the privacy and safety of our on-site, accredited, outpatient facility.
Facial Combination Procedures FAQs
What facial procedures are commonly combined?
Because the periorbital area shows signs of aging earlier than the face and neck the majority of patients who undergo facial aesthetic surgery in our practice consider blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) at some point in their rejuvenative plan. In some cases, depending upon a patient’s unique anatomy as well as the effects of the aging process, procedures such as brow lifting, chin augmentation or even ear contouring are performed concurrently.
Are fat transfers used during facelifts?
Dr. O’Connell believes that, because of the natural volume deflating nature of the aging process, with rare exception nothing should be removed from the deeper structures of the face. Whenever possible, he prefers procedures that enhance facial volume or provide the illusion of volume enhancement. Depending upon each patient’s anatomy, fat transfers can be utilized both concomitantly with facelifting, or as a stand-alone procedure to assist with volume enhancement.
Are non-surgical procedures combined with facelifts?
The majority of facelift patients have already had, and will continue with non-surgical procedures such as BOTOX® and injectable fillers such as Restylane® and Juvederm®. We feel these can help refine and maintain your more youthful, beautiful appearance.
At The Aesthetic Center we commonly combine the latest surgical and non-surgical procedures for state-of-the-art facial rejuvenation. We have the latest non-invasive technology including lasers, IPL, Fraxel and radiofrequency based treatments – all designed to optimize your aesthetic result and minimize your recovery.
What about skin care and facelifts?
At The Aesthetic Center, we believe that beautiful skin is a vital, but often overlooked, element of a youthful, harmonious facial appearance and all our facial rejuvenation patients are encouraged to begin an individualized skin-care program that addresses both therapeutic and maintenance goals. The latest chemical peels, intense pulsed light, laser and radiofrequency based therapies and ever PRP are combined with other facial aesthetic procedures to optimize your results.
