Find out what facial plastic surgery options we offer our patients in Orland Park, New Lenox, and Evergreen Park, IL.

Whether you are dealing with a crooked nose or a congenital condition such as a cleft lip, there are many reasons someone may be considering turning to our Orland Park, New Lenox, and Evergreen Park, IL, doctors for facial plastic surgery. Surgery can help to reconstruct and improve the structure, function, and shape of the face, head, and neck. If you’re unhappy with your appearance, here are some ways our surgeons can help.

Rhinoplasty

Are you dealing with a crooked, misshapen, or hooked nose? Since it’s hard not to notice someone’s nose, you may feel embarrassed by your appearance or feel that your nose throws off the symmetry of your face. If so, you may be considering rhinoplasty, a surgery that alters the shape of the nose. Rhinoplasty can help restore proper proportions to the face by improving the contours and shape of the nose. It can even be used to correct large or upturned nostrils.

Brow Lift

As we age, we begin to notice sagging skin. One of the places where it may be most visible is the brow line. If drooping and sagging brows are making you look tired or even angry, a simple brow lift can help to smooth away wrinkles around the area, raise the brows and help you look younger. A brow lift may also be performed in conjunction with blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) to help refresh the eye and brow areas.

Facial Implants

Implants can be placed in the jaw, chin, or cheeks to help alter and improve the overall structure, shape, and contours of the face. These implants are made from biocompatible material to help augment these areas. If you have a poorly defined jaw, disproportionally small chin or you dream of having fuller cheeks, implants can help to craft these features and make them more distinct.

Blepharoplasty

If you are noticing drooping or sagging eyelids you may be an ideal candidate for blepharoplasty. This eyelid surgery can be used to treat puffy and droopy eyelids, lower eyelids with excess wrinkles or skin, and even bags under the eyes. This procedure can be performed on either the upper or lower eyelid, or both. This can rejuvenate the eye area and help take years off your appearance.

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.
