Fernando Burstein M.D., F.A.C.S., F.A.A.P. of Atlanta Plastic Surgery, P.C. recognized on local Atlanta news station for anti-aging facial cosmetic procedures.
Atlanta, Georgia December 12, 2012
Recently featured by Fox 5 Atlanta’s Medical Team, Atlanta facial plastic surgeon Dr. Fernando Burstein was recognized in November for exceptional combination facial surgery results to eliminate signs of aging. Seeking facial rejuvenation for her eyes, Dr. Burstein’s patient, Barbara, undergoes blepharoplasty along with rhinoplasty, and browlift surgery for complete and balanced results during the segment.
While the retired elementary school teacher states she initially sought surgery to have her “eyelids come right to where they’re supposed to be.” To do this, Dr. Burstein performed a browlift and upper and lower eyelid surgery to remove excess fat and loose skin. Upon consultation, it is not uncommon for facial procedures to be recommended in combination to maintain proportional, esthetically pleasing results.
Dr. Burstein is double board certified in plastic and reconstructive surgery as well as otolaryngology (head and neck surgery). He performed blepharoplasty on both her upper and lower eyelids to remove excess fat and skin while tightening the area to improve the look of under-eye bags, drooping eyelids, and sagging eyebrows. Barbara is happy with her results, noting that her eyes now “look really wide.” She shares, “I see my eyes, I don’t see my eyelids. It makes me feel younger, and I do look a little younger.”
Dr. Burstein also performed rhinoplasty to remove a bump in her nose and gave her a chemical peel to even out skin tone for a more proportionate result. Rhinoplasty can be both cosmetic and reconstructive, reshaping the nose for a more pleasing appearance and position to resolve breathing obstructions. Finishing the procedure with the chemical peel, Dr. Burstein often utilizes this minimally-invasive treatment to even skin tone and reduce the appearance of scars.
With over 25 years of experience, Dr. Burstein strives to master the latest techniques and technology in cosmetic, reconstructive, and pediatric facial plastic surgery. Using outlets such as his website, social media, and his facial plastic surgery blog that features a section highlighting monthly spotlight patients like Barbara, Dr. Burstein provides helpful information online as he reminds patients, “a thorough and honest discussion of realistic expectations and potential risks is essential in the preoperative period.” Dr. Burstein is a highly skilled facial plastic surgeon with a great deal of concern for his patients as demonstrated with satisfied patient testimonials and through his Spotlight Patient articles.
