Facial Plastic Surgery Q & A
What is facial plastic surgery?
Facial plastic surgery is used to address a number of functional, structural, and aesthetic concerns. Facial plastic surgery is appropriate for patients born with facial abnormalities like a cleft lip as well as patients looking to enhance their appearance. The effects of things like aging, stress, and environmental damage can be successfully addressed through facial plastic surgery. Dr. Berg and his team specialize in an individualized, conservative approach to facial plastic surgery.
What is a deviated septum?
The nasal septum is a thin wall made of cartilage and connective tissue that separates the nasal passages. When this wall becomes displaced to either side, it results in what’s known as a deviated septum. The nasal septum can be displaced from birth or occur due to an injury. Patients with severe cases experienced reduced airflow and impaired breathing. A septoplasty is a surgical procedure used to correct deviated septums. In many cases, rhinoplasty is also performed to reshape the nose after the nasal septum has been adjusted.
What is blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure used to correct defects and deformities of the eyelids and improve their appearance. Blepharoplasty is most often performed to address baggy or droopy upper eyelids, excess skin on the lower eyelids, and undereye bags. After blepharoplasty, most patients can return to their normal activities in 10-14 days.
What is facioplasty?
If you’re looking to improve your appearance, Dr. Berg also provides safe and effective facioplasty. Facioplasty, also known as rhytidectomy or a face-lift, is a surgical procedure used to address visible signs of aging in the face and neck. Gravity, sun damage, stress, and genetics all play a role in the way your skin appears over time. A face-lift can be used to successfully correct concerns like sagging skin, deep lines, loss of volume, and excess or loose skin. Face-lift surgery can be combined with other procedures like blepharoplasty and implants to achieve optimal results.
If you’re considering facioplasty, Dr. Berg and his team provide a conservative approach, helping patients achieve desirable, natural-appearing results.
