The full facelift is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures available. A facelift can give dramatic results, and take years off your face. If you are starting to see the effects of time and gravity on your face, this procedure might be right for you! Dr. Kulbersh customizes each facelift procedure he performs for the best result for you personally, and his patient satisfaction rate is very high. A facelift with Dr. Kulbersh is safe, effective, and comfortable.
A neck lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure that is less invasive than a full facelift, designed to rejuvenate the appearance of an aging neck. The neck is one of the first areas of the body to begin to show signs of age, and is one of the most visible areas of the body. A neck lift can help to restore angulation and definition to the neck and jawline. Neck lifts are popular due to their ability to contour the neck area.
A mini facelift, or mini lift, is a minimally invasive cosmetic surgical procedure to lift the lower face and neck. This type of lift can be a great option for people who want to rejuvenate their appearance, but are not quite at the stage where they need a full facelift. Mini lifts can be customized to the person, and generally are a great way to lift sagging jowls and tighten up skin that has begun to show signs of laxity.
One of the most common plastic surgery procedures, a rhinoplasty or “nose job” involves contouring and reshaping the nose to create a more symmetrical or aesthetically pleasing appearance, as well as correcting structural defects that may interfere with breathing. The procedure can alter everything from a bulbous tip to asymmetrical nostrils to visible humps along the bridge of the nose. Rhinoplasties require extensive skill in order to achieve the unique results suited to each patient’s individual appearance and preference.
Forehead and Brow Lift
A forehead and brow lift is a minimally invasive procedure that lifts the brow, allowing the eye area to become brighter and the appearance to become more youthful. As we age, our brows may change position and drop lower, creating unflattering shadows and creating an eye that looks small and heavy. A brow lift can help restore a youthful look to your face and brighten the eyes. Dr. Kulbersh performs two types of brow lift, a minimally invasive 1cm incision lift and an endoscopic brow lift.
Facial Fat Transfer
As we age, we lose volume in our face, leading to a gaunt, hollow, tired appearance. Facial fat transfer, also called autologous fat transfer, uses the patient’s own fat to restore volume to the face. Fat transfer is a safe, effective, and non-allergenic way to help rejuvenate the face and obtain a fresher, younger appearance. The procedure is minimally invasive, and results can usually be seen immediately, although full results won’t be visible until the swelling goes down over the course of a few weeks.
Facial liposuction is a popular way to reduce excess fat and re-contour the neck, chin, and jaw area. Using a thin instrument called a cannula, Dr. Kulbersh can extract unwanted fat and create a pleasing facial contour. Facial liposuction can be a great way to get rid of a double chin, reduce jowls, and reduce turkey neck. Facial liposuction will cause the skin of the neck to contract and tighten over a 6 month time period after surgery. It is a minimally invasive procedure that does not require general anesthesia and has a relatively short recovery period.
Otoplasty, also known as ear pinning, is a procedure that can be done to bring protruding ears closer to the head. Adults and children both may have protruding ears that can lead to teasing, bullying, and low self-confidence or self-esteem. Otoplasty is commonly performed on children to prevent potentially psychological damage from teasing. When performed by a skilled, double board certified facial plastic surgeon such as Dr. Kulbersh, otoplasty is a very safe and effective procedure for you or your child.
The chin is an important area of the face in regards to facial balance and overall harmony. A chin that is too small or weak can throw off the balance of features, and may make the nose look larger or smaller as well. Chin implants can help to restore harmony to the face and bring a patient’s features into balance, creating a more aesthetically pleasing appearance. Dr. Kulbersh is an expert in chin augmentation surgery, and has a well-trained eye to assess how best to create facial harmony in his patients. He is fellowship trained in facial plastic surgery, which ensures he has the best training and background in performing the best facial surgery procedures, including chin implants.
Many people have thin lips, either due to age or genetics. As we age, our lips tend to become thinner, and this can lead to an older, more severe appearance. For patients who wish to achieve fuller, plumper lips, Dr. Kulbersh offers lip augmentation. Lip augmentation can be done through simple injections of fillers such as Restylane or Juvéderm, and is a quick and relatively painless procedure!
The cheeks are one of the most prominent areas of the face, but unfortunately, not everyone has a strong cheek area. Some people are born with weak cheekbones, and as we age, our cheeks lose volume, leading to a sunken, hollow appearance. Dr. Kulbersh offers a variety of options for cheek augmentation, including cheek implants, fat transfer, and non-invasive injectable fillers. Which option is right for you will be decided after an in-person consultation in which Dr. Kulbersh will evaluate your cheeks and create a custom treatment plan for you.
Many people, especially women, have earlobes that have become stretched or torn due to wearing earrings. This can be not only unattractive, but can cause a person to not be able to wear earrings anymore. Luckily, earlobes can be repaired through a fairly simple surgical procedure. If your earlobes have been stretched or torn, whether due to earrings or another cause, don’t hesitate to contact Dr. Kulbersh about earlobe surgery.
A keloid is scar tissue that overgrows so much that it often produces a lump on the skin and may even expand larger than the initial injury or tissue damage. Keloids are comprised of collagen, giving it a rubbery, shiny appearance and may even become itchy or painful. It is possible to have keloids safely removed, surgically or with laser treatments, especially when they occur on the face or other visible areas of the body and Dr. Kulbersh will use injections of 5-fluorouracil during and after the cosmetic surgery to prevent the return of the keloid
Moles are often brown, black, or tan spots on the skin that can be raised or flat. It is important to monitor whether the moles change in color or appearance over time as it may be a sign of melanoma. Many people choose to have moles removed from their faces or other parts of the body if they feel they are aesthetically unattractive. Dr. Kulbersh can evaluate any moles to determine whether to remove them surgically or with laser treatments.
