Facial Surgery in Louisville, Lexington, Kentucky
Facial plastic surgery is one of Dr. Salzman’s specialties. Many people pursue facial surgery to correct changes due to sun damage, aging, injury, and weight loss. If you are looking for a face lift, rhinoplasty, otoplasty or facial rejuvenation, contact Dr. Salzman at the Salzman Institute for Cosmetic Surgery today to discuss your options. We are dedicated to creating a personal approach to this sensitive decision.
Ageless Mini Lift
Early facial aging with loss of definition in the jawline, deepening of the smile lines, and jowl formation. Patients who’ve had prior facelifts and now need tightening only in the middle of the face.
Fusion Face Lift
Lack of youthful appearance of the face, neck, and skin. Signs of facial aging in the cheeks and jowls, appearance of nasolabial folds and wrinkles, fine lines, sun damage, discoloration, rough texture, and scars.
Loss of facial volume and lack of a youthful facial appearance. A more youthful, natural-looking, and rested facial appearance. Less-pronounced nasolabial folds and marionette lines, and more definition in the cheeks. Improves facial skin tone and texture, and provides longe- lasting results with reduced post-treatment inflammation.
Excessive, wrinkled, or sagging skin of the upper or lower eyelids. Loss of a natural upper eyelid crease. Puffy pouches of fat in the upper or lower eyelid that creates an aged or tired appearance.
An eyebrow that has descended too low on the bony orbital rim. A decrease in space between the eyebrow and upper eyelid. Deep vertical furrows between the eyebrows (frown lines).
Localized deposits of fat and loose skin in front of the neck and under the chin. Sagging skin and muscle below the jawline and neck.
Laser resurfacing is indicated in patients who have a sun-damaged, wrinkled appearance to the skin sometimes associated with uneven skin tones and/or large pores. Acne scarring, surgical or traumatic scars, and stretch marks can all be softened with laser resurfacing.
An unflattering nose. A nose that does not fit with the surrounding facial features. Noses that have an abnormal appearance secondary to injury, genetics, birth defects, or prior surgeries.
Chin implants are done in an ambulatory setting under a general or local anesthetic with IV sedation. An incision is placed inside the mouth below the teeth or under the chin. A Medpor®, porous polyethylene (plastic material) is then customized to correct the chin deficiency.
Flattened appearance of the cheekbone area of the face. A desire for more prominent cheekbones. A stronger appearance to the cheekbones. Widening of the middle third of the face.
A more visible lip. More of the vermillion (red color) showing in the frontal view. A shorter distance from the top of the lip to the nose.
Lips that have lost volume or fullness. A desire for larger size and fuller appearance to the lips. A fuller and more enlarged lip. More visibility of the lip margin. A lip that extends more visibly to the corner of the mouth.
The desire for larger or fuller lips. Creates permanently-larger lips without the need for repetitive procedures—as would be needed with dermal fillers or fat transfer (fat grafts).
Otoplasty (ear pinning) is done under a general laryngeal mask anesthetic or a local with IV sedation in adults. Incisions are hidden behind the ear. The ear cartilages are reshaped and sutures are placed to move the ear back towards the head. Children with prominent ears can have surgery beginning at age 6.
