Cosmetic Procedures

Resurfacing – Fractional, Phenol Chemical Peel, Dermabrasion

As we age, our skin begins to change as a result of several different life factors. The natural collagen within the skin begins to diminish and skin may sag and droop. Other skin conditions such as acne, brown spots and chicken pox can leave unattractive blemishes on the skin.  Resurfacing procedures clear away the damaged outer layers of the skin to reveal the younger, smoother and healthier skin below that can improve your appearance and self-confidence.

There are many different resurfacing procedures available to help patients achieve the beautiful, youthful-looking skin they desire. Fractional laser treatments target only the problem areas of the skin to provide deep resurfacing effects. Phenol peels are the strongest type of chemical peel available, and are used to treat deeper skin problems such as coarse facial wrinkles and pre-cancerous growths.

Dermabrasion removes a layer of surface skin to improve the appearance of facial scarring, wrinkles, sun damage, age spots and other unwanted skin effects. The skin is first frozen and then abraded with a high-speed rotary instrument for a dramatically smoother, fresher look.

These procedures may require a few days or weeks of downtime, but produce noticeable results that significantly improve the health and appearance of the skin.

Otoplasty (Ear Reshaping)

Otoplasty (Ear Reshaping) | ButteOtoplasty, or ear surgery, is a surgical procedure performed to correct large, protruding or otherwise deformed ears for a more proportionate appearance. Unlike most other plastic surgery procedures, otoplasty is most commonly performed on children, as the ears are typically finished growing by the age of four. Early treatment helps reduce teasing and any affect on self-esteem that large or misshapen ears may cause. Otoplasty may often be performed to correct ears damaged by an accident or injury.

During the otoplasty procedure, an incision is made behind the ear to remove or reshape the cartilage and adjust the size and position of the ears for a more natural-looking appearance. For children, this procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia, while adults usually only require local anesthesia and sedation. Both ears may be operated on in order to achieve better balance. The results of the otoplasty procedure are permanent and scars will fade with time to become less noticeable.

Scar Revision & Treatment

Scar revision is performed to reduce the appearance of scars caused by injury or previous surgery. Scars are by definition permanent, but surgery can narrow, fade and otherwise reduce the appearance of severe or unattractive scarring, which is especially helpful in areas of cosmetic importance such as the face and hands.

There are many surgical methods of scar revision, only some of which may be appropriate for a particular type of scar or its location. These include surgical excision, skin grafts, flap surgery and Z-plasty (repositioning a scar so that it aligns with the face and is less noticeable). The effectiveness of scar reduction depends on a number of factors, including the nature of the injury, your body's healing mechanism, the size and depth of the wound, how much blood supplies the area and the thickness and color of your skin.
