Our faces express our emotions, show our personalities, and help us create first impressions in professional and social contexts. As a facial plastic surgeryresult, it's important to feel happy and confident with your facial appearance—something that isn't always possible with what Mother Nature has given you. Fortunately, here at Century Ear, Nose, and Throat in Orland Park, Evergreen Park, and New Lenox, IL, Dr. Curtis Walsh is a board-certified expert in facial plastic surgery who can help give you a look that you'll be proud to show off!


Reasons for facial plastic surgery

Facial plastic surgery in Orland Park modifies the skin and structures of the face, including the nose, eyes, mouth, chin, and ears. It ensures facial symmetry, improves functionality, balances musculature, repairs both congenital and acquired defects, and more.

Here at our offices in Orland Park, Evergreen Park, and New Lenox, we can fix your specific issue through a variety of procedures. For example, if you are frustrated with wrinkly or sagging skin, we can correct it through:

  • BOTOX Cosmetic
  • Laser wrinkle removal
  • Dermal fillers, such as Juvederm
  • Dermabrasion
  • Chemical peels

Others require more extensive examination, imaging, and evaluation by our board-certified physician. Commonly, people wish to change defects which they were born with or have acquired through illness, medical treatments, motor vehicle accidents, cancer, or another medical condition or trauma.

During a consultation, Dr. Walsh thoroughly reviews each patient's medical history in order to discuss options, the potential for change, and what the specific goals may be. At the end of this meeting, he recommends treatments—sometimes facial plastic surgery being one of them—to reach those goals.
