Face Lifts, Rhinoplasty and other Facial Procedures | Carl Englebardt, M.D.
Facialplasty – Surgery to restore a more youthful facial appearance. Some of these procedures can be performed on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia. The more complicated, lengthy facialplasty procedures are done under general anesthesia and require an overnight stay.
Since the face usually ages as a unit, I commonly perform multiple procedures (i.e. brow lift, face/neck lift and blepharoplasty) during the same operation. For facial resurfacing to improve wrinkling, texture or undesirable pigmentation, I prefer chemical peels and dermabrasion to laser resurfacing. The results are as good or better than laser resurfacing and these procedures are more cost-effective.
Rhinoplasty – Surgery to change the appearance of the nose and improve nasal breathing. A good rhinoplasty should produce a natural-looking nose that is in harmony with the rest of the face, rather than one that is overdone and “surgical” in appearance.
In addition to aesthetics, rhinoplasty can provide improved nasal breathing, which can greatly improve patients’ quality of life. Minor nasal procedures can be performed under local anesthesia; however, I most often perform rhinoplasty under general anesthesia on an outpatient basis.
Otoplasty – Surgery to correct deformities of the external ear. Ear deformities can range from simply prominent ears to major complex defects.
Minor ear set back procedures can be performed under local anesthesia, although small children usually require general anesthesia. Major deformities often require complex, multi-staged reconstructions.
Lip Augmentation – Surgery to enlargen and reshape the lips. For lip enlargement, I prefer using dermis, the deeper layer of the patient’s own skin. The results are excellent and permanent, and nothing artificial need be introduced into the patient’s body.
Collagen and fat injections do not last, and I do not use materials from other organisms. Lip augmentation is performed using local anesthesia and is a very simple, effective procedure.
Chin Augmentation – Surgery to enhance chin projection. Most of the time I use a silicone chin implant, although in some cases a portion of the patient’s mandible is simply repositioned. Chin augmentation is sometimes combined with rhinoplasty or facialplasty to bring better balance and harmony to the facial features. Local anesthesia is often adequate for chin augmentation.
