When it comes to facial plastic surgery, some patients may seek complete rejuvenation while others choose non-invasive treatments to address targeted areas. Younger patients often begin non-surgical procedures to treat early, moderate to minor signs of aging. Since facial and skin concerns range from wrinkles and fine lines to lax skin and muscle, Dr. Fernando Burstein offers various surgical and non-surgical rejuvenation procedures to treat patients of various ages and any facial aging concerns.
Double board certified in plastic surgery and otolaryngology, Dr. Burstein performs surgical procedures for patients with advanced signs of aging, such as facelift and brow lift to tighten lax skin and smooth wrinkles and folds. During facelift surgery, excess fat and skin are removed and muscles can be re-tightened. In some instances, facial tissue and fat can be repositioned to fill areas of lost volume for a more youthful appearance. Similar to facelifts, brow lifts specifically address the forehead and brow areas. Patients who are only concerned with certain areas of the face can opt for a brow lift or a mini facelift, which can specifically address skin located in the upper, mid, or lower part of the face.
To address specific features such as the eyes, Dr. Burstein also offers blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery). This procedure corrects drooping eyelids and removes fat deposits below the eyes that contribute to a tired appearance. Eyes are a common area of concern as they can be one of the first areas to exhibit signs of aging. Patients can combine this procedure with a facelift or other facial treatments for a more comprehensive rejuvenation.
Patients with minor skin concerns and signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and sun spots can benefit from minimally invasive treatments. Cosmetic injectables such as Botox® smooth out wrinkles on the upper third of the face and facial fillers restore lost volume in areas such as the cheeks and mouth. For surface concerns such as sun spots and scars, Dr. Burstein uses TCA chemical peels and laser skin resurfacing with the Sciton® Erbium laser to rejuvenate skin and encourage collagen growth.
