What Facial Plastic Surgery Procedures are Offered at UPMC in Central Pa.?
The experienced, highly trained plastic surgery providers at UPMC in central Pa. offer a full range of personalized facial procedures. Because there are many different approaches to facial plastic surgery, your surgeon will evaluate your needs and goals before developing a customized surgical plan for you.
Our facial procedures include:
- Brow lift. Our surgeons perform traditional and minimally invasive brow lift procedures to correct heavily lined, drooping, or creased foreheads and create a rested, rejuvenated, and more youthful appearance. Brow lift surgery is often combined with other facial procedures, such as face lift or eyelid surgery.
- Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty). Eyelid surgery rejuvenates puffy, sagging, and tired-looking eyes, creating a smoother, well-rested appearance and naturally beautiful results that subtly enhance and showcase the eyes and eyebrows. Although most blepharoplasty procedures are performed for cosmetic reasons, you may also experience improved sight when drooping eyelids are lifted from your field of vision. Eyelid surgery is often combined with a face lift to raise the eyebrows, or Botox® treatments to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
- Nose surgery (rhinoplasty). Nose surgery is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures. Our surgeons will develop a personalized rhinoplasty plan to help you achieve your personal appearance goals while ensuring optimal breathing and nasal functioning. Your procedure may include removing undesired humps and curves, as well as reshaping, reducing, or augmenting your nose to complement your facial structure or correct a breathing problem, a congenital problem, or a deformity caused by an injury. Nose surgery can be combined with face lift, eyelid surgery, or Botox.
- Face lift (rhytidectomy). A face lift removes excess facial skin and fat and tightens facial muscles to create smoother skin and a more youthful appearance. Your surgeon will develop a customized treatment plan that reflects your unique needs and goals, taking care to use thin incisions that minimize scarring and are placed in discreet locations, such as behind your hairline or in the natural recesses of your face and ears. Face lift surgery can be combined with eyelid surgery, brow lift, or Botox treatments.
Is Facial Plastic Surgery Right for Me?
Before any plastic surgery procedure, your surgeon will conduct a comprehensive evaluation of your specific situation to determine whether plastic surgery can help you achieve your personal appearance goals.
Your surgeon will ask you about your health history, your activities, and your desired results. Keep in mind that not everyone is a candidate for all facial plastic surgery procedures. If you are a candidate for plastic surgery, your surgeon will create a personalized treatment plan for you.
Your surgeon will also discuss the risks and benefits of your procedure and will let you know what you can expect before, during, and after surgery. If you have questions, your surgeon will take the time to provide you with the education, information, and reassurance you need.
If you decide to proceed, you will meet with a member of our team who will provide pre-surgery instructions and information and assist you with scheduling, payment arrangements, insurance approvals (if applicable), and coordinating your follow-up care.
