Facial Plastic Surgery at Reflections
These days many people are living longer, healthier and more active lives. They feel younger than their years, and they want their appearance to match.
At Reflections, we offer an assortment of facial plastic surgery options designed to make you look as young as you feel.
As with everything we do, our facelifts, neck lifts and eyelid lifts provide noticeable, natural-looking results. You’ll look great, but you won’t look “done.”
Facial Plastic Surgery Options
All procedures happen under local anesthesia in our Martinsville center. They are performed by Dr. Mark Karolak, our board certified facial plastic surgeon who has been performing facial plastic surgery for over 10 years, with thousands of successful procedures to his credit.
NvLift– The NvLift is a powerful way to address many common signs of aging in a single procedure. Dr. Karolak’s signature facial procedure combines the benefits of a facelift, a neck lift, and liposculpting to provide extraordinary results. If needed, laser skin resurfacing and fat transfer can be performed at the same time as the NvLift to address other signs of aging in a single visit.
Lower Face Lift – A great way to address sagging jowls, skin fold around the mouth and droopy cheeks. A lower facelift tightens the skin and muscles in the lower portion of the face, removing signs of aging while leaving you looking perfectly natural. If you find yourself pulling the skin on your cheeks up towards your ears when you look in the mirror, then this very well could be the procedure for you.
Mini Facelift – A less invasive, more superficial approach to surgically tightening skin on the lower portion of the face and in the neck. Sometimes referred to as a Weekend Lift or a Lifestyle Lift, this procedure is ideal for younger patients who are just starting to notice sagging jowls, marionette lines around the mouth and a little loose skin on the neck, and don’t require the more significant correction a lower facelift can provide.
Neck Lift – A wonderful way to address sagging, loose skin on the neck, making the neck look smoother and more youthful from the front, and tighter and better contoured from the side. If you have a “neck waddle,” muscle banding, or the dreaded “turkey neck,” then a neck lift is worth considering.
Eyelid Lift – Also known as an upper blepharoplasty, this procedure addresses loose, sagging skin that hangs down over the eyes, creating folds and interrupting the natural contour of the upper eyelid. After an eyelid lift, your upper eyelids will appear smoother and more youthful, leaving your eyes themselves looking a little bit brighter. This procedure is sometimes combined with a lateral brow lift to further enhance the contour of the upper eyelids and the eyebrows.
IdealEyes – The ideal procedure for restoring a youthful undereye, without surgery. IdealEyes combines fat transfer and CO2 Ablative laser skin resurfacing to smooth, tighten, and tone the undereye’s fragile skin and underlying fat structures, creating a lasting look of health and vitality.
Lateral Brow Lift – A great way to gently lift and re-contour the outsides of the brow and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin along the temples. If you place your fingertips on the outer edges of your brow and lift them up and back, you can get a sense of the good things a lateral brow lift can do for your appearance. As with everything we do, the results of a brow lift appear natural and pleasing to the eye.
CO2 Ablative Skin Resurfacing – A powerful way to remodel collagen in the skin, CO2 laser skin resurfacing stimulates the body’s natural healing mechanisms to replace fine lines, wrinkles, and brown spots with a smooth, supple outer layer of skin. This one-time treatment also helps tighten the skin, and is frequently combined with a surgical correction such as the NvLift or a lower facelift to produce truly wonderful results. If your skin has brown spots or texture issues, then CO2 ablative skin resurfacing is something you should learn more about.
Fat Transfer – A safe and lasting way to restore youthful volume to the face, addressing the sunken cheeks and gaunt appearance that can come with age. Healthy fat is taken from the love handles or abdomen and is put through a treatment process, after which it is expertly injected into the face. Fat transfer produces results similar to dermal fillers, but its effects last much, much longer. Beyond being a great standalone option, fat transfer is also a wonderful addition for surgical patients who need a little extra facial volume to make their results look truly splendid.
We perform all of our surgeries under local anesthesia, lowering the risks and expense associated with general anesthesia. We call it Comfort Calm Local Anesthesia, because our patients are comfortable and relaxed, but safely awake during the procedure.
