Also known as a rhytidectomy, a facelift is a commonly performed facial plastic surgery. It is used to help patients who experience age-related skin sagging, facial fat shifting, muscle laxity, and seek a more youthful look. Variations include an S-lift to specifically address jowling, anterior cervicoplasty to address a "turkey gobble" deformity, and a neck lift to treat neck laxity.
Patients looking for a more rested appearance should consider a brow lift. Dr. Greco uses this surgery to tighten forehead tissues, which rejuvenates a tired look by addressing sagging eyebrows and deep horizontal lines.
Blepharoplasty can refer to both upper and/or lower eyelid surgery, but they are two vastly different operations. Upper eyelid surgery removes sagging and hooding of excess skin, while lower lid surgery reduces bulging pockets of fat.
There are two main types of rhinoplasty: open (which involves pulling back the nasal skin to reveal the internal structures during surgery) and closed (which is performed with no external incisions). Whether patients want to contour a dorsal hump, get narrower nostrils, or simply have an overall smaller nose, Dr. Greco’s goal is to create a nose that balances with the rest of the facial features. Ethnic rhinoplasty also preserves distinct physical characteristics while reshaping the nose. Also important is maintaining the nasal airway to allow patients to breathe better.
Sometimes, people are not satisfied with the results of their previous nasal surgery. Due to his unique background in otolarynology and facial plastic surgery, Dr. Greco performs revision rhinoplasty to correct the problems, which may have given the nose an unnatural look, or created significant breathing difficulty.
A patient who wants new contours for the lips, cheeks, or chin may consider facial implants, which add volume with silicone implants or fat transfer.
To reduce volume in certain areas, Dr. Greco may use facial liposuction, which involves the strategic surgical removal of unwanted fat cells.
Fat cells collected from a donor area (abdomen) can be processed and refined to make excellent filler material for structural fat grafting, which can restore facial volume where needed.
While not a surgical procedure, laser skin rejuvenation can improve the look of the face by reducing the severity of wrinkles and aging spots.
Better known as ear surgery, otoplasty can help adults or children with protruding ears, giving them more selfconfidence and a more balanced look.
A minimally invasive treatment, dermabrasion improves scars and skin texture.
Since lips may thin with age or be naturally thin, many people choose lip augmentation to add volume. A lip lift procedure, fillers around the mouth, or lip filler injections are becoming more mainstream and leave many satisfied.
Scar revision can make a scar less noticeable, whether it is thick, red, and raised (hypertrophic). By employing any of a number of specialized techniques, Dr. Greco can change the color, width, length, orientation, and elevation, thereby dramatically improving the appearance of a scar.
