At Facial Aesthetic and Laser Centre, we are committed to providing you comprehensive care and can combine a number of non-surgical and surgical procedures to help you achieve your desired results. Popular procedures include:
- Face Lift: This procedure can help patients improve the overall appearance and contours of the face, neck and jawline. We provide a mini, mid, and full face lift depending on your exact needs. This procedure can address moderate to severe wrinkles in the mid-face, as well the mouth and neck. It can also tighten weakened muscles and eliminate excess skin for a more youthful appearance. Dr. Shagets will discreetly make the incisions so that they blend in with your hairline or the natural creases of your face. The procedure typically takes about three to four hours and involves several weeks of recovery time.
- Brow Lift: Also referred to as a forehead lift, this procedure can address deep lines and wrinkles, as well as a furrowed and hooded brow to give you a more youthful and rested appearance. The procedure generally takes about one to two hours and you can resume normal activity in about two weeks.
- Blepharoplasty: Eyelid surgery can remove excess skin and fat from your upper and lower eyelids to give you a more alert and rejuvenated appearance. This procedure not only benefits patients' appearance by improving puffy, droopy, and tired-looking eyes, but it can also improve vision obscured by sagging eyelids. The procedure generally takes about one to two hours depending on the severity of the issues, with a one to two weeks recovery.
- Neck Lift: If loose skin and excess fat have contributed to a double chin and jowls, a neck lift can tighten tissue and give you a sleeker jawline. We can also combine chin implants to give you a more defined profile. The procedure generally takes two to three hours and you can resume normal activity within one to two weeks.
- Rhinoplasty: Also referred to as a nose job, this popular procedure can reshape the nostrils and bridge of the nose to give your face a more balanced appearance. It is often used to correct a deviated nose, as well as smooth bumps, improve overly wide or narrow nostrils, or eliminate a bulbous tip. The surgical procedure will last about one to two hours and recovery can take two to three weeks.
- Otoplasty: Often referred to as ear pinning, otoplasty is designed to address overly large or protruding ears. The procedure typically lasts between one to two hours and recovery takes about a week.
- Chin, Cheek, and Nose Implants: Dr. Shagets generally provides implants in combination with a facelift, neck lift, or nose job to improve harmony between your facial features.
- Lip Implants: In contrast to fillers, lip implants can achieve permanent effects. Dr. Shagets also offers fat grafting, a safe method to enhance the lips with no risk of rejection.
