Facial sculpting involves in the injection of a patient's own fat or dermal fillers into his or her face. This treatment creates a more full look to the face, diminishing the look of wrinkles. Dr. Dennis Hurwitz also provides natural-looking face lifts that can smooth wrinkles, remove extra skin, and create a more youthful appearance.
It's common with aging; the face not only sags, but loses volume. We offer a variety of modalities to fill deficiencies of volume. Ideally we take some of your own fat and inject it very carefully into the cheeks or jawline. For lesser treatments there are a variety of fillers that we offer to patients that can be done in our outpatient clinic and not require a formal procedure. Facial sculpting through augmentation using your own fat or fillers is ideally suited for those who have lost volume but not too much sagging of the tissues. Otherwise, we would recommend a face lift.
We offer a very natural looking face lift, and we do that through a vertical lift that extends all the way up into the temple and the addition of fat as necessary. The pull is on the deeper tissues, not on the skin, so we routinely avoid that unnatural look that scares patients away from face lifts. We're pleased to say that fat augmentation from your own body can last ten to twenty years. Unfortunately, the syringe augmentation, whether it be Restylane or Juvederm, lasts six months to a year and needs to be repeated on a regular basis.
When we use fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm you're able to go to work the next day with minimal to no swelling. When we use fat augmentation with [arcanulous] it will take a week to ten days for the swelling to resolve so that you can get back into society. If you're interested in facial rejuvenation surgery, or fillers we talked about, please call. We can arrange for a complimentary consultation for those of you who have visited this website.
