Contact us today to learn more about the following options we offer:
Face Lift: Commonly performed on men and women between ages 50 and 70, a face lift smooths the loose skin on your face and neck, tightens underlying tissue, and removes excess fat. The result is a fresher, younger looking face with firmer skin. A face lift is recommended for those interested in tightening loose jaw lines, neck skin, erasing deep lines from the corner of the nose to the corner of the mouth, and/or straightening wrinkles and sagging skin in the cheeks.
Blepharoplasty: This procedure enhances the appearance of your eyes and eyelids, correcting imperfections brought on by aging or hereditary factors. A blepharoplasty may remove fatty deposits and baggy skin from the eye area to give you a less tired and puffy look, or remove excess skin that hangs down and impairs your vision. This treatment may be performed on the upper and/or lower lids and, depending on the nature of your procedure, may be covered by insurance. Consult with us today if you are uncertain.
Rhinoplasty: A common procedure, rhinoplasty redefines the shape, size, and general appearance of the nose. Rhinoplasty can be performed on men and women at any age, and is usually performed on patients who wish to remove natural bumps or depressions on the nasal bridge, narrow nostrils that appear too wide, or adjust a nose that appears crooked or too large for the face. For patients seeking to repair damage caused by accidents or injury, or genetic obstructions that impair breathing, your insurance may cover some of the procedure. Consult with us today.
Botox: A popular outpatient procedure, Botox injections provide a natural, purified protein that is used in small doses to relax overactive muscles in frown lines, crows feet and between eyebrows. The result leaves your skin looking smoother and more youthful. The effect of one treatment generally lasts three or more months and may be performed on men and women.
Injectable Fillers: Similar to Botox treatments, the materials Restylane and Radiesse are frequently used as a temporary method for softening areas of aging on the face. This in-office procedure is completed quickly with little downtime and a very safe risk profile, ideal for patients who want to achieve a younger look without surgery.
Face/Neck Lift: A common and popular procedure, face/neck lifts can reduce the appearance of sagging skin below the chin, and tighten up the area for a younger, smoother look. Face/Neck Lifts result in a well-defined chin and jaw-line, clear silhouette and smooth throat. For many patients a laser-type lift may be a less invasive alternative.
Sidelaze is a laser treatment for the neck and jowls. It is utilized to target neck fat, tighten skin in the treatment area, and create more definition in the jaw. This is certainly not a replacement procedure for facelifts or necklifts, however for many this high tech procedure allows Dr. Kanter to achieve results that are remarkable.
