Facial Cosmetic Surgery
Bharat Shah, M.D., F.A.C.S., provides facial cosmetic surgery at his Springfield, MO, practice. These procedures can tighten sagging skin, redistribute fat deposits, and provide other complex refinements for dramatic rejuvenation. You will undergo a thorough consultation in order to determine the best way to provide your desired results. Under Dr. Shah's care, patients are active participants in the planning of each procedure. If you decide to have an additional procedure in the future, we will already have your information on file, helping Dr. Shah quickly develop a safe and effective treatment plan.
A facelift procedure can correct sagging skin, deep creases around the mouth and nose, loose skin around the neck, and fat deposits. To perform the treatment, Dr. Shah will usually create incisions over and around your ears. Hidden in your hairline, resulting scars will be remarkably discreet. Alternatively, he can provide subtle results for men by making incisions in the beard line. Dr. Shah will remove sagging skin, and he will also lift the underlying muscles for a natural-looking enhancement.
Facial cosmetic surgery can be complex, and you should choose an experienced surgeon who frequently performs these procedures.
A mini facelift can be a good option if you want to reduce early sings of aging. If you notice that your jawline is losing definition due to sagging skin or a fat deposit below the chin, a mini facelift can provide subtle results that help you look more youthful. A mini facelift involves a faster recovery time than a full facelift. Typically, you can return to work in a week or two.
A brow lift can enhance your forehead and the area between your eyebrows. There are several ways that Dr. Shah can reduce furrows and other signs of aging in this area. He may create an incision in your hairline, or he could use a mid-forehead crease incision, especially for men. He also offers a minimally-invasive endoscopic brow lift, during which he will use a tiny surgical camera inserted through very short incisions to tighten underlying tissue before tightening the skin of the brow.
An eyelid lift, or blepharoplasty, can address sagging upper or lower lids, as well as bags under your eyes. Dr. Shah will remove excess skin, refine displaced fat deposits, and tighten damaged muscle tissue. To do so, he will hide incisions either in your upper eyelid crease or your lower lash line. The result is a rested and alert appearance.
Dr. Shah most often performs otoplasty, or cosmetic ear surgery, to correct protruding ears. However, this treatment can also improve misshapen, overly large, and cupped ears. Otoplasty is appropriate for children as young as five or six. In fact, kids often have the best treatment outcomes. Dr. Shah will place incisions behind the ears, and he can use sutures to pull the cartilage closer to the sides of the head. If desired, he can also remove cartilage to reshape or resize the ears.
Rhinoplasty is a process of refining nasal contours to provide a better complement to surrounding facial features. It can refine features such as a bump on the bridge of the nose, a pronounced downward angle at the tip of the nose, and wide nostrils.
The natural aging process can involve a loss of fat tissue in the face, which can cause a hollow appearance in the cheeks and contribute to the prominence of wrinkles. Fat grafting can restore your youthful look with very little discomfort or recovery time. Dr. Shah will perform liposuction on your abdomen, hips, or another area. This tissue can then be injected into the face to restore youthful contours. The tissue will integrate with your natural facial structure without any risk of rejection or allergic reaction.
