Face Plastic Surgery in NYC - Manhattan
A facelift is a surgical procedure used to rejuvenate and improve the appearance of the face. This procedure can correct deep creases that may form between the nose and mouth, a sagging jaw line, folds around the neck, sometimes referred to as a “turkey neck”, and jowls. This is done by removing excess fat and tightening underlying muscles and the skin of your face and neck.
Great brows can be an attractive feature that sets the tone for the entire face. Brows frame the eyes and call attention to important facial features. They react with facial expressions and communicate emotions like surprise, joy and worry. Over the years, the face begins to show wear and tear from those millions of daily expressions. Falling eyebrows can contribute to an unintended sad or tired appearance or a stern, unapproachable appearance. Frown lines and furrows, sagging eyebrows, and "hooding" of the lids are some of the inevitable results of aging. Lifts can help to minimize these problems by tightening the skin and underlying muscles.
Eyelid surgery, one of the most popular cosmetic procedures for both males and females, can have a very dramatic effect in restoring a more youthful, rested appearance. So often aging is first noticeable around the eyes. Crow’s feet appear, fine lines start showing at the outer corners, and the eyelids become droopy with fatty deposits and excess skin.
Ear Lobe Repair
Ear piercing puts the lobe at risk for many kinds of damage including stretching, tearing and keloid scarring. Many people don't know that their earlobes can be repaired and restored with plastic surgery by Dr. Michael Wolfeld. Your ears are not only one of the most visible parts of your body but also very fashionable and make a major statement by how they look and what jewelry you wear.
Nasal reshaping, or rhinoplasty, is one of the most elegant and complex operations we perform in facial aesthetic surgery. It is a delicate operation performed by Dr. Wolfeld of illusion and balance that produces very satisfying results. Rhinoplasty (nose reshaping) is a surgical procedure used to improve the appearance of the nose. Some of the indications that you may be a good candidate for rhinoplasty are that your nose appears too large for your face, there is a bump on the nasal bridge when viewed in profile, your nose seems too wide when viewed from the front, the nasal tip droops or plunges, the tip is thickened or enlarged, your nostrils are excessively flared, your nose is off-center or crooked or previous injury has made your nose asymmetrical.
Dr. Wolfeld performs a neck lift to rejuvenate the neck and lower face. This procedure removes excess sagging skin, tightens weak muscles, and eliminates unwanted fat deposits and double chins. This gives you a clean, youthful jawline and brightens up the entire face. The lower face including the area around the mouth, the lower jaw line, and the neck is an extremely important aesthetic feature. As we get older, your neck often starts to show signs of aging before the face. Jowls form at the jawline, neck bands start hanging at the throat, and you may develop a “turkey wattle” neck. Dr Wolfeld can give you back that striking jaw line with smooth, taut skin.
Ear reshaping or ear pinning (otoplasty) is most often performed by Dr. Wolfeld to reposition prominent or protruding ears closer to the head. Ears that appear to stick out or are overly large can be helped by ear surgery. For the most part, the operation is done on children between the ages of four and 14. Ears are almost fully grown by four to six years of age, and the earlier the surgery, the less teasing and ridicule the child will have to endure. Dr. Wolfeld also frequently performs ear surgery on adults and there are generally no additional risks associated with ear surgery on an older patient.
Balance is extremely important in the consideration of any type of aesthetic facial plastic surgery. As we analyze facial form and beauty, multiple different views are necessary to achieve an overall aesthetic concept. The nose and chin are major features that contribute to the profile, and any excess or deficiency in either feature can detract from the overall appearance. Visually, a poorly defined chin can make the nose and upper teeth look more prominent. The jaw and neckline often appear weak and undefined. A person may also have lost chin definition due to the natural aging process. A well defined chin helps give balance and harmony to the face. Chin augmentation (chin implant) is a procedure that improves the total facial balance of an individual with a receding chin.
Have you ever wished you could have fuller, shapelier lips? Full, plump lips have long been considered attractive in our culture, but not everyone was born with full lips. If you are not satisfied with the appearance of your lips, now you have the power to do something about it. As we age, our lips tend to drop and thin. The red portion of the lip and the border of the lip (called the white line) lose their fullness and voluptuous shape. A thinning upper and lower lip can give an appearance of anger or old age. If your lips are thinning, you may be a candidate for lip augmentation. Lip enhancement, also known as lip augmentation, is a procedure using a variety of surgical and non-surgical techniques to enhance the appearance of the upper and lower lips. Since the lips are a defining characteristic of the face, lip enhancement is a commonly performed procedure. With an artistic eye and using advanced techniques, Dr. Wolfeld can perform a lip augmentation that will appear completely natural.
