Dr. Fallek is able to enhance or refine areas of the face and neck for both women and men using surgical procedures and chemical treatments. Adjustments can also be made for congenital deformities (birth defects) and abnormalities resulting from accidents or disease.
We will be happy to provide you with Pre- and Post-op pictures of our procedures in the office. Dr. Fallek does not post these pictures online for the safety and security of his patients.
Blepharoplasty can rejuvenate puffy, sagging or tired-looking eyes by removing excess fat, skin and muscle from the upper and lower eyelids. It may be performed for cosmetic reasons or to improve sight by lifting droopy eyelids out of the patient's field of vision. Blepharoplasty can be combined with BOTOX® treatments to raise the eyebrows or reduce the appearance of wrinkles, crow's feet or dark circles under the eyes.
The procedure is usually performed in an office with local anesthesia and lasts 45 minutes to a few hours depending on how much work is done. Incisions are made along the eyelids in inconspicuous places. The surgeon removes excess tissue through these incisions and then stitches them closed with fine sutures. The effects of blepharoplasty can last for a long time and are sometimes even permanent.
A facelift is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures available, designed to treat wrinkles, sagging and skin laxity within the face for a younger, more refreshed appearance. As we age, the effects of time, gravity, sun exposure and stress inevitably take their toll on our faces, producing wrinkles, folds, fat deposits and loose skin. Patients unhappy with the changing appearance of their face may seek relief through a facelift.
During the facelift procedure, an incision is made around the ear, sometimes extending into the scalp, through which sculpting, lifting and repositioning of the underlying fat, muscle and deep tissues, and trimming and redraping of the skin may be performed for dramatic yet natural-looking results. While results are not permanent and do not make patients immune to the effects of aging, you will continue to look younger than if you had never undergone any treatment.
Rhinoplasty, or nose surgery, is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures performed today. It can reshape, reduce or augment a person's nose to achieve facial harmony and boost self-confidence. Rhinoplasty is usually an outpatient procedure performed under either local or general anesthesia and lasts one to two hours unless more extensive work needs to be done.
Surgeons use one of two techniques: the incision is either made within the nostrils, thus hiding scars after surgery, or across the columella (the vertical strip of tissue separating the nostrils) in an "open" procedure, where scars are small and hidden on the underside of the base. In both procedures the skin is lifted, the bone and cartilage sculpted, and the skin replaced and stitched closed. Patients with realistic goals for rhinoplasty are generally very happy with the new shape of their nose.
A browlift is a cosmetic procedure performed to rejuvenate the appearance of the forehead for patients with lines, wrinkles, sagging and other unwanted effects of aging. Patients can achieve a smoother, younger appearance that helps them look less sad, angry or tired. This procedure is usually performed on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia and sedation. Many patients choose to combine a browlift with other procedures such as blepharoplasty or a facelift to maximize the results.
Browlifts may be performed in one of two ways: with conventional methods, in which the incision is hidden beneath the hairline (for patients with thinning hair, who are bald or who have had previous surgery in the area, the incision will likely be moved somewhere less conspicuous); or with an endoscope, in which a tiny camera and instruments are inserted through a few small incisions. Both techniques produce similar results. You and Dr. Fallek will discuss which option is better for you.
Although many people do not notice it, a weak chin can significantly affect facial appearance, causing the nose to look larger or the neck to look loose. Chin augmentation is often performed to provide a more balanced facial appearance and create a chin that is stronger, wider or longer, depending on each patient's individual goals. Also known as mentoplasty, chin augmentation involves placing a soft, flexible implant in the chin through a small incision underneath. The implant may be placed in a pocket or secured in place with screws for long-term results.
Otoplasty, or ear surgery, is a surgical procedure performed to correct large, protruding or otherwise deformed ears for a more proportionate appearance. Unlike most other plastic surgery procedures, otoplasty is most commonly performed on children, as the ears are typically finished growing by the age of four. Early treatment helps reduce teasing and any effect on self-esteem that large or misshapen ears may cause. Otoplasty may often be performed to correct ears damaged by an accident or injury.
