A facelift is a popular cosmetic procedure that can rejuvenate the face by reversing the most common, advanced signs of aging. We can customize this procedure to treat loose skin, wrinkles, sagging skin, facial folds, and volume loss.

This procedure is a good option for patients who can no longer achieve their aging-related and cosmetic goals with non or minimally invasive treatment options. Patients should be in good health, have realistic expectations about the procedure, and have significant facial volume loss, deep wrinkles and folds, and sagging or loose skin that doesn’t respond to non-surgical treatment options.

How It Works

During a facelift, the surgeon will make discrete incisions in different locations. These may include the area along the hairline, under the chin if necessary, or around the ears. He will lift and tighten the underlying facial muscles and remove excess fat before re-draping the skin and suturing the area. Facelifts result in smoother and firmer skin, a more youthful appearance, and a significant reduction in visible lines, facial folds, and wrinkles.

Chin Lift

Neck Lift

A neck lift is a surgical procedure that targets loose, sagging skin in the neck area that’s resulted from the natural aging process. We can add a neck lift to the Face by Balto procedure to correct sagging neck skin, eliminate excess fat, and correct muscle banding. A neck lift can create a more defined jawline and improve neck contours by smoothing the skin in the area.

The best candidates for a neck lift are patients in good health with realistic expectations about the surgical outcome. Patients must understand that while the procedure will improve the appearance of the neck, it can’t prevent the natural aging process or the future signs of aging in the area.

How It Works

During this procedure, the surgeon will make small incisions, typically behind the ears and possibly beneath the chin, to remove excess fat and skin. Then, he’ll tighten the underlying muscles and finish the procedure by repositioning the skin to create improved and refined neck contours and youthful-looking skin.

Rhinoplasty is a nose-reshaping surgery that can improve nose aesthetics in multiple ways. The procedure aims to improve facial balance and create an improved nasal profile. Rhinoplasty can reduce or eliminate the appearance of a prominent bump or hump on the bridge of the nose. It can also refine the nose tip and correct a wide or flat bridge.

The best candidates for rhinoplasty are patients who want a more balanced nasal profile, want to treat a prominent dorsal hump, reshape the tip of their nose, or address a wide or flat nasal bridge. Patients should be healthy and mentally and emotionally prepared for the procedure.

How It Works

During the procedure, after administering general anesthesia, the surgeon will make some discrete incisions either inside the nostrils or across the strip of tissue that separates the nostrils to minimize visible scarring. Then he will correct the dorsal hump, reshape the nasal bridge, or correct the appearance of the nasal tip per your treatment plan.

Brow Lift

The brow lift, also called a forehead lift, is designed to lift and reposition the eyebrows and forehead to treat drooping eyebrows, forehead wrinkles, and frown lines. It can reverse aging and restore a youthful and refreshed appearance to the upper half of the face. The surgeon will make incisions within the hairline or forehead creases during the procedure. He will lift the underlying tissue and muscles, eliminate excess skin, and naturally reposition the eyebrows to improve facial aesthetics.

A brow lift is a good option for patients in good health who want to address sagging or drooping eyebrows, frown lines, forehead wrinkles, and a tired or angry appearance resulting from aging on the upper half of the face.

Facial Fat Grafting

We can also add facial fat grafting to the Face by Balto procedure. Facial fat grafting involves removing excess fat cells from one area of the body and re-injecting them into different areas of the face to restore lost volume, fill wrinkles, and improve facial contours. We can also perform facial fat grafting on the lips to naturally increase lip volume and improve lip shape.

The best candidates for facial fat grafting are patients in good health who want natural-looking results and want to treat volume loss, facial creases and wrinkles, and enhance their lips. During the procedure, the surgeon will harvest fat cells from an area on the body with excess fat deposits; typically the thighs, back, or abdomen. The fat will then be carefully extracted, purified, and prepared for re-injection into strategic areas of the face.

Upper Blepharoplasty and Lower Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty is a procedure that reverses how aging has negatively impacted the appearance of the eyelids and has caused puffy bags beneath the eyes, excessive wrinkling, or drooping and sagging eyelids. Blepharoplasty can reduce visible signs of aging in the eye area, restore a youthful appearance, and make patients look more alert. We can perform an upper blepharoplasty and lower blepharoplasty based on each patient’s needs.

An upper blepharoplasty corrects aging on the upper eyelid area, including loose or sagging skin and eyelid drooping. A lower blepharoplasty addresses visible aging beneath the eyes along the lower eyelid, including puffy eye bags, fat deposits, and wrinkles. Patients can add an upper blepharoplasty or lower blepharoplasty to their procedure as needed or can undergo both to reverse visible aging in the whole eye area.

How It Works

During blepharoplasty, our surgeon will target how aging has affected your upper or lower eye area and remove excess skin, fat, and muscle around the eyelids as needed. You can expect a rejuvenated and more youthful appearance after this procedure.

Am I a Good Candidate?

You may be a good candidate for the Face by Balto procedure if you have multiple aging-related and cosmetic concerns you want to address during one surgical procedure. The first step in this process is an initial consultation, where you’ll meet with one of our expert surgeons to discuss your concerns in person.

Our surgeon can evaluate your desired treatment areas and learn more about your medical history to confirm that you’re a good candidate for the procedure. Then, he can create a customized surgical treatment plan with a combination of these procedures to meet your exact needs.

What Kind of Recovery Should I Expect?

After undergoing the Face by Balto procedure, our surgical team will help you begin the recovery process, provide specific instructions about caring for the incision sites, and give you other directives about ensuring the best possible recovery. You will need to plan on taking time off work and spending the first several days resting so that your body can begin to heal and you can enjoy your results as quickly as possible.

We will provide detailed post-operative instructions so you know what activities to avoid and how to accelerate healing in the weeks following your procedure. We’ll also schedule follow-up appointments to ensure you are healing well and make any aftercare adjustments as needed.
