3 Ways to Add Contour and Definition to Your Face

Facial Implants Guilford, CTThe last thing you want is to have a face that resembles a basketball from every angle. As one of the most common features that all supermodels have, it’s a naturally contoured look. If you feel like your face could use a bit more definition, then you may want to consider one of these three options. From facial fillers to facial implants, this article will discuss three unique ways you can add contour and definition to your face. Read on to learn more.

Facial Fillers

As a temporary and affordable way to add definition to your face, facial fillers like Juvederm and Restylane are popular amongst Dr. Gary J. Price’s patients. By injecting the fillers under your cheekbones and around the center of your face, you will notice fewer wrinkles and more facial volume overall.

Fat Transfer

As one of the most popular procedures out there, fat transfer surgery involves removing fat from one part of your body and redistributing it to your face. And because you are using your fat, you don’t have to worry about any adverse reactions or introducing a chemical component to your body. Although some of the fat will be absorbed after it has been harvested, most of it should stay.

Facial Implants

If you’re looking for a permanent way to add contour and definition to your face, look no further than facial implants. By surgically implanting silicone implants under your cheeks or chin, you can add a whole new level of dimension to your face.

If you’re looking for a way to transform your face shape and structure, look no further than facial fillers, a fat transfer procedure, and facial implants. To learn more about each of these procedures and to see if one of them is right for you, schedule a consultation with Dr. Gary J. Price.

Lift Up Your Life With a Surgical Lift

facelift | new haven ctUnless you are Benjamin Button and age backward, you will start to notice the skin around your face and neck will start to lose elasticity. And although dermal fillers and Botox can help temporarily rid you of fine lines and wrinkles, they aren’t permanent. If you are looking for a more permanent way to get tighter skin, consider getting a lift. With three prominent types of lifts to choose from, however, you may not know the difference between them. From facelifts to neck lift’s, this article will discuss three common surgical lift procedures that Dr. Gary J. Price performs. Read on to learn more.

Facelift

When you initially hear of a surgical lift, a facelift is probably the surgery that you are most familiar with. Designed to treat sagging skin around the face and neck, a facelift is an outpatient procedure that involves surgically tightening the skin, and removing excess skin in the process.

Forehead Lift

As one of the first places on your face to show your actual age, your forehead can start to develop wrinkles even in your late teens or early twenties. A forehead lift is a surgical procedure designed to get rid of a sagging brow and fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead. During a forehead lift, small incisions will be made, and your skin will physically be lifted and tightened.

Neck Lift

Because Botox and dermal fillers are a great way to treat fine lines and wrinkles on the face, some patients opt to get just a neck lift. A neck lift involves removing excess fat, skin, and tissue in the neck that is causing you to look more your age. During this procedure, small incisions will be made, and the skin will be smoothed out— giving you back your youthful appearance.

Aging is both beautiful and traumatic. If you have started to notice the toll that your age is having on your skin, consider getting a surgical lift from Dr. Gary J. Price. During your consultation, Dr. Price will go over your options and collectively you can decide what procedure is best for you.

Hollowed Cheeks? Consider Cheek Enhancements

Cheek Enhancement | New Haven CTIf you look in the mirror and want to change a thing or two about your appearance, you are certainly not alone. And as your skin starts to lose elasticity and collagen as you age, you may start to notice even more flaws in your appearance that you would like to change. As an excellent way to enhance your overall look and make your face look a bit more youthful, cheek enhancement surgery is relatively simple. Read on to learn more about cheek enhancement surgery and whether or not it is the right thing for you.

What Is Cheek Enhancement Surgery?

Typically done in conjunction with a facelift, cheek enhancement surgery involves using either fillers, implants, or fat grafts to plump up the cheeks and give you a more chiseled facial appearance. Depending on the method that you and Dr. Gary J. Price decide to use for your cheek enhancements, you may have to go under anesthesia. If, however, you decide to do mere injections, you can be in and out of our office in virtually no time at all.

Who Is a Good Candidate?

To determine whether or not you are a suitable candidate for any cosmetic surgery, you will have to undergo a physical exam by your primary care physician to make sure that you are healthy enough. Most candidates for cheek enhancement surgery have a loss of fat in their face due to age and sun damage.

What Are Results Like?

Results from a cheek enhancement vary from patient to patient and depending on what method you use. For instance, if you and Dr. Gary J. Price decide to use fillers, your results will only last up to a year. Whereas if you get implants, they will last for several years, if not longer.

If you have started to notice a loss of fat and elasticity in your face, you may want to consider getting a cheek enhancement done by Dr. Gary J. Price. If you would like to learn more about this procedure or if you would like to schedule an appointment, contact our office today!

A Beautiful Chin Can Be Yours…With KYBELLA®

Kybella NYCA “double chin” (submittal fullness) affects a large number of men and women who have found themselves in the midst of dealing with the process of aging. It’s a challenging time, that’s for sure. Excess fat in the chin area can be the result of genetics, weight gain, or aging. However it gets there, it is unattractive and self-esteem deflating. If you would love to reduce the appearance of your double chin, you’re not alone. Loving their neck is something many men and women struggle with, but Dr. Price offers a revolutionary, new answer – KYBELLA®, the first and only FDA approved non-surgical treatment for improving the appearance of moderate to severe fat below the chin. Read on to learn more.

  • KYBELLA® is an injectable treatment whose active ingredient is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the absorption and breakdown of dietary fat.
  • When it is injected beneath the chin, KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells, and once these cells are destroyed, they cannot store or accumulate additional fat.
  • KYBELLA® is available as treatments, and because everyone is unique, we will help you decide how many treatments you will need to achieve your desired aesthetic results.

KYBELLA® can cause serious side effects, including nerve injury to the jaw, or trouble swallowing. The most common side effects of KYBELLA® are bruising, pain, redness, swelling and numbness, as well as areas of possible hardness in the treatment area.

Before you schedule a KYBELLA® treatment, be sure to tell Dr. Price about any medical conditions you have; the prescription and over-the-counter medicines you are taking; if you have had or plan to have surgery on your face, chin or neck, or if you have had cosmetic treatments to these areas. Let him know if you have trouble swallowing, bleeding problems, are breast-feeding, pregnant or planning to become pregnant, or if you are taking a blood-thinner.

To learn more about this new injectable treatment, call to schedule an appointment, today: (203) 453-6635.

Consider The Differences: A Neck Lift And A Facelift

facelift and neck lift in Guildford Connecticut | Dr. Gary Price MDThe neck lift and the facelift are two of the most effective cosmetic surgical procedures for enhancing the appearance of an aging neck and face…they are also two of the most popular procedures. Both produce long-lasting results; both share similar degrees of invasiveness and recovery periods; both result in significant improvement to saggy skin and weak muscles around the face and neck. Dr. Price often combines them into a single procedure which results in the amazing, age-defying benefits of both.

A neck lift procedure pulls excess skin under the chin, jawline, and jowls – the area commonly called the “turkey neck.” Incisions are generally placed behind the ears and below the chin. There are various types of facelift surgeries, but most plastic surgeons describe the facelift procedure as pulling up the skin at the cheeks, toward the forehead. Incisions are made primarily in front of the ear. The facelift focuses on improving the cheeks, double chins and the lower face. It reduces wrinkles and corrects sagging skin in those specific areas.

For most patients, improvements from these procedures are noticeable within days of the surgery. Visible bruising and swelling gradually disappear, and most patients are socially “presentable” after two weeks.

 

Would you benefit from one or both of these procedures?

  • To mimic a neck lift, place your fingers below your jawline, outside your jaw, and push upward and back.
  • To mimic a facelift, place your fingers at the top of your cheekbones and push your skin upward and back.

Dr. Price caters to the surgical needs of both men and women, and can help you decide which procedure would be best suited for you. Call, today, to schedule a consultation: (203) 453-6635.

• Each lift is tailored to the patient’s unique concerns.
• Recovery from a full facelift usually requires two to three weeks, but every patient is different.
• Dr. Price is a highly experienced, innovative, board-certified plastic surgeon, who specializes in all types of facial cosmetic surgery. His goal is to provide his clients with a natural-looking look result.
