Can a Facelift Get Rid of a Double Chin?

A facelift is known for improving facial contours via the smoothing and removal of excess skin, but Orlando patients often wonder whether the procedure has the ability to similarly enhance the neck and jawline. While facelift surgery at our Orlando practice can reduce neck laxity to some degree, effectively getting rid of a double chin may require a combination of additional neck contouring approaches. Luckily, these techniques can easily be added to your facelift treatment plan so that total facial rejuvenation can be completed in just one procedure.    If you have the appearance of a double chin due to excess fat in the submental region (under the chin), liposuction should be enough to reduce fullness and achieve more definition around the jawline. A mild... Continue Reading

BOTOX Cosmetic vs. Dermal Fillers

If you’ve been considering cosmetic injectables to restore the youthful features of your face, you may be wondering which product is the best choice to attain the refreshed, rejuvenated look you desire. BOTOX Cosmetic® and dermal fillers can improve most signs of age, but knowing which type of injectable is best suited to treat your concerns typically depends on the aspects of your appearance you wish to improve. Are you more concerned with smoothing fine lines, or do you want to improve a sunken or hollow look? Do your features seem flat, or are brow wrinkles causing you to look constantly angry? Our board-certified plastic surgeon can shed light on how to determine the most ideal treatment for you, but in general: BOTOX Cosmetic® can... Continue Reading

How to Get Rid of Jowls

It’s widely known that collagen production diminishes as we get older. The cosmetic effects of this decline are often exacerbated by factors such as gravity, sun exposure, and genetics. As decreased levels of collagen and elastin are absorbed by the body, some of the most prominent signs of facial aging that develop include sagging skin and lost volume around the cheeks. Facial skin and fatty deposits begin to descend, the result being the formation of jowls—or relaxed skin along the jawline. Jowls often present an aesthetic concern for many individuals who may feel like their outward appearance is inconsistent with how youthful they feel inside. While most people develop jowls at some point in their lifetime, Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani offers both surgical and non-surgical... Continue Reading

What to Expect After Eyelid Surgery

According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), eyelid surgery is one of the most frequently performed cosmetic procedures in the country. Commonly known as blepharoplasty, this aesthetic surgery can give patients the ability to eliminate signs of exhaustion, stress, and age around the eyes—an area of the face that often exhibits these concerns most prominently. The result of blepharoplasty can be a more refreshed and youthful expression, thereby offering patients an effective treatment to minimize pronounced facial aging as well as resolve lax tissue in the upper eyelids that may be obstructing their vision. After upper and/or lower blepharoplasty, patients can expect to make a full return to their daily routines within seven to ten days. Bruising, swelling, tenderness, and discoloration is...

What Age Is Best for Facelift Surgery?

Is there such a thing as the perfect age for a facelift? The truth is there may be an ideal age range for each individual, but there is no specific age that is right for everyone. Our experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani, emphasizes that cosmetic procedures should be customized to suit the unique anatomic needs and aesthetic goals of the patient, including a facelift. Designed to reduce excess fat and skin, tighten muscles, and minimize the appearance of other common signs of aging, a facelift will provide the greatest benefit when performed by a skilled physician, regardless of your age. Most of our patients undergo facelift surgery in their 50s, but some people have this procedure as early as their 40s and others... Continue Reading

What Are the Benefits of Upper and/or Lower Eyelid Surgery?

The eyes are often the first area of the face to start showing signs of aging. Eyelid skin can begin to sag, fatty tissue can build up, and the result can be a face that appears tired or sad. Eyelid surgery, medically referred to as blepharoplasty, can address these issues and help you regain a more rested and youthful look. Our extensively trained plastic surgeon, Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani, offers the most advanced techniques available, and he’s renowned for his natural-looking results. Blepharoplasty can be performed on the upper eyelids, the lower eyelids, or both. If most of your concerns are relegated to either the upper or lower lids, it may make sense to focus your treatment there. Many patients, however, have signs of aging... Continue Reading
