A full facelift offers the most comprehensive results available in facial cosmetic surgery. This procedure can reduce sagging skin and wrinkles around your eyes, mouth, and nose. During the procedure, Dr. James D. McMahan can also redefine your cheek bones and eliminate jowls. Facelifts result in minimal scarring, since the doctor will conceal incisions behind your ears or hairline. Thanks to the doctor’s personalized approach, you will enjoy natural results and a contoured, rather than a tightened, appearance.
With a mini facelift, Dr. McMahan can reduce sagging skin around the cheeks and jaw. Because the procedure is less extensive than a full facelift, your recovery time will be much shorter. In fact, mini facelifts are often referred to as “weekend facelifts.” To address other areas of your face, the doctor can combine this procedure with dermal fillers or other surgical treatments. Before recommending any treatment, he will conduct a complete consultation to discuss your concerns and goals.
If you have sagging eyebrows, deep creases across your forehead, or persistent frown lines at the top of your nose, you may be a good candidate for a brow lift. To perform this procedure, Dr. McMahan will create small incisions along your hairline or across the top of your head. Through these incisions, he will lift the underlying muscles, suturing them in higher positions. He will also trim away excess skin before closing the incisions with sutures or surgical tape. Dr. McMahan is usually able to perform a brow lift endoscopically, which reduces recovery time and post-operative swelling.
Rhinoplasty, or a nose job, can achieve dramatic effects for your overall appearance and self-confidence. During rhinoplasty surgery, Dr. McMahan can remove excess bone and cartilage to reshape or resize your nose. In some cases, he can also perform tissue grafting to fill in depressions and give you a more defined profile. In addition to cosmetic results, rhinoplasty can have health benefits, as well. During this procedure, the doctor can correct a deviated septum to help you breathe properly.
If your upper or lower eyelids have begun to sag or if you have excess fat deposits in your lids, causing them to appear puffy, blepharoplasty may be the solution. During upper eyelid surgery, Dr. McMahan will create an incision hidden in the crease of your lid. For lower eyelid surgery, he will discreetly place the incision in the corner of your eyelid. No matter which procedure you choose, he will use techniques to minimize bleeding and discomfort, and also reduce your recovery time.
Otoplasty, or ear pinning, is suitable for children as young as six. Dr. McMahan can use this procedure to reposition protruding ears. He can also remove tissue to reduce the size of your ears or improve the appearance of irregularly shaped ears. During otoplasty surgery, Dr. McMahan will create an incision behind the fold of your ear, where it will naturally be hidden. After removing cartilage, he may choose to place permanent sutures to bring your ears in closer to the side of your head.
If you are embarrassed by a sloping or ill-defined chin, Dr. McMahan can enhance your facial proportions with a chin implant. Before your procedure, you will have a complete consultation with Dr. McMahan to determine the right size and shape for your silicone implant. Alternatively, if you have a large or irregularly shaped chin, the doctor can perform a chin reduction, precisely contouring it to achieve a more pleasing shape.
Like a mini facelift, a mid facelift targets a smaller treatment area than a full or traditional facelift. As a result, discomfort is minimal and recovery typically takes a week or less. Through carefully concealed incisions in the nasolabial folds or hairline, Dr. McMahan can gently lift and tighten the tissue around your lower eyelids, the corners of your mouth, and your nose. Following your mid facelift, you can enjoy reduced nasolabial folds, fuller cheeks, and diminished bags under your eyes.
Thanks to our injectable skin treatments, you can enjoy a smoother face and younger appearance with no anesthesia, incisions, or downtime. By combining BOTOX® Cosmetic with dermal fillers such as JUVÉDERM® and Restylane®, Dr. McMahan can reduce lines and wrinkles around your eyes, forehead, mouth, and nose. Non-surgical facelifts are completely personalized treatments designed to meet your specific needs, so you will have a thorough consultation with Dr. McMahan before your procedure.
The neck is often one of the first signs of aging due to sagging skin and vertical muscle bands. Although this area is generally treated at the time of a facelift, it can be dramatically improved by itself without treating the face. Excess fat is removed along with sagging skin and the loose neck muscles are tightened with sutures to give a more youthful appearance. The scars can be hidden under the chin and behind the ears.
If you have naturally undefined cheeks or if your face has begun to droop with age, cheek augmentation can boost your facial structure. During treatment, Dr. McMahan will use JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ injections to add volume to your cheeks. The results of this innovative new treatment can last up to two years, and it can be a great way to achieve a more youthful appearance without surgery. Dr. McMahan will tailor your procedure to meet your individual needs and ensure your results look completely natural.
A dermabrasion is a surgical technique that can dramatically improve the texture and appearance of the skin. This procedure treats the deepest layers of the skin as possible without causing scaring. After a week of recovery, patients can expect to see skin that has fewer blemishes, fine lines, and problems with pigmentation, and skin that is overall smoother and more even.
