Facial Plastic Surgery - San Antonio, Texas
Facial plastic surgery procedures can create a more balanced, youthful, or refreshed look for patients who are unhappy with their current appearance. During your consultation at Accent Plastic Surgery, P.A., Dr. Pilcher can discuss your needs and help you determine which procedures are best suited to your personal goals. Patients can benefit from a number of effective facial plastic surgery procedures at her San Antonio, Texas practice, including:
Loss of facial skin elasticity and muscle tone caused by the natural aging process, gravity, and sun damage can lead to the formation of jowls, loose skin around the neck, and prominent lines and creases. Although a facelift will not permanently stop the aging process, it can help erase several years from your appearance. At our San Antonio, Texas practice a facelift involves removing excess fat, tightening underlying muscles, and lifting the skin into a more flattering position. The procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia as an outpatient procedure with a recommended overnight stay. Dr. Pilcher may recommended that her San Antonio, Texas patients combine their facelift procedure with blepharoplasty or BOTOX® Cosmetic to further improve your appearance and increase your self-confidence.
The signs of aging are often first recognized in the eye area. As early as the age of 30, excess or overhanging upper eyelid skin and lower eyelid puffiness, bulging, and wrinkling can cause one to appear tired and older and even interfere with vision. At. Dr. Pilcher’s San Antonio practice, many patients find that blepharoplasty, or eyelid lift, is an effective surgical treatment for these concerns, creating a wider, brighter, and more youthful eye area with only minimally visible incisions. Blepharoplasty is typically performed as an outpatient procedure under local or general anesthesia. Combining facial plastic surgeries at our San Antonio plastic surgery center is quite common; blepharoplasty is often combined with a facelift to achieve even more noticeable results.
Chin augmentation is accomplished using a carefully shaped implant that is placed under the skin to create a stronger jawline and improve facial symmetry and balance. The incision may be made inside the mouth so there is no visible scar, or externally under the chin, which results in a small scar that is barely visible. Chin augmentation is typically performed as an outpatient procedure, and most patients can return to work and light activities in as little as 1 week.
Otoplasty can minimize the appearance of prominent ears by pinning them back so they lie closer to the head or by reducing their size. This surgery is often performed on young children between the ages of 4 and 14 because children with overly large or conspicuous ears may be subjected to ridicule by their peers, causing them to feel self-conscious about their appearance. However, adults who are uncomfortable with the size or shape of their ears can also benefit from otoplasty. At our San Antonio practice, otoplasty is typically performed as an outpatient procedure and most patients are back to normal activities in five to seven days.
Reconstructive facial plastic surgery procedures are varied, and may include scar revision, skin cancer removal, ear pierce repair, and skin grafting. To learn more about these options, please contact Accent Plastic Surgery, P.A. for a personal consultation.
For a more drastic transformation, facial cosmetic surgery procedures can be combined with liposuction, abdominoplasty, breast augmentation, breast reduction, breast lift, body contouring, or facial rejuvenation services to help each of our patients look and feel their very best.
