Today, advanced skin care programs are available to address the specific needs of your skin. If it has been over a year, make an appointment to have your skin assessed. Your physician will be able to identify and treat problems, including deep cleansing, exfoliating, and extraction. You will learn the proper steps and recommended products to achieve healthy and clear skin. Besides your in-home routine, your facial plastic surgeon may recommend a deep cleansing facial, microdermabrasion, chemical peel, or laser skin resurfacing to improve skin texture, the appearance of fine lines, and hyperpigmentation.

Facial fillers, such as Juvederm or Radiesse, work to fill in furrows, wrinkles, and folds in the lower facial region. Some of these fillers increase volume in hollowed or sunken facial areas. Botox and Dysport reduce wrinkles caused by contracting muscles in the upper face. View our before and after photos for examples of actual patient results.

Take 10 to 15 years off of your appearance with a facelift. A good candidate is looking to improve the aging face by re-supporting muscles and removing excess skin. The enhancement to the lower two-thirds of your face not only smooths the skin and lifts the sagging muscles, but also redefines your jaw line. The brow lift reduces severe wrinkles in the forehead and brow area. The neck lift focuses on reducing sagging skin only in the neck area. Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, can remove excess fat deposits above and below the eye, and reduce certain wrinkles in the eye area.

Some patients have underdeveloped cheekbone structure or, due to the aging process, have loss soft tissues and the fat pad. This causes skin to sag and the cheek area to appear flattened or sunken and may produce wrinkles around the mouth. Cheek implants or dermal fillers, like Juvederm, provide youthful fullness to the area that is permanent. If you are considering an improvement to your profile and to distinguish your jaw line, chin augmentation might be a viable option for you.

The most prominent feature, your nose, is often a prime candidate for reshaping if you are looking to bring balance and harmony to your overall appearance. Rhinoplasty is the most popular cosmetic procedure performed. See our before and after gallery of Minnesota nose surgery patients.

From treatments to major procedures, your Minnesota facial plastic surgeon can discuss what facial features you would like to rejuvenate this spring and answer all of your questions. Take the first step toward a better, revitalized you—your reward will be a spectacular summer.
