Otoplasty for Prominent Ears

July 20th, 2020

Otoplasty is a plastic surgical procedure that reduces prominence of the ear and can also improve the overall ear shape. These undesirable features of the ear are primarily the result of the growth and development of the internal cartilage framework of the ear and can be hereditary. The components of the procedure will vary depending on the extent of the problem. Dr. Forley will customize the surgery to your specific situation. The incisions are usually hidden in the back of the ear. The cartilage is reshaped using one or more techniques of scoring, suturing, and excision to reduce the excessive prominence and create balance with the opposite side. Dissolvable sutures are used to close the incision and a gentle pressure dressing is applied for several days. Pain is usually minimal and any noticeable swelling gradually resolves over the first several weeks.

Pro-Nox Nitrous Oxide Analgesia System

June 28th, 2020

Pro-Nox is a combination nitrous oxide and oxygen delivery system that helps to relieve both anxiety and discomfort when performing minimally invasive cosmetic procedures. It is a patient directed system that is activated when you take a breath from the mouthpiece and works in seconds to provide a calming effect as well as a decrease in any pain that you may be experiencing. You are in charge so you only use it when you need it. It is ideal for radiofrequency energy procedures such as FaceTite, BodyTite, AccuTite, and Morpheus8. It can also make Ultherapy, the focused ultrasound treatment, much more tolerable.

Pro-Nox has a short duration of effect and is cleared from your body within minutes. Dr. Forley will be glad to discuss the benefits of the Pro-Nox System with you prior to your next procedure.

LOWER EYELID REJUVENATION

July 29th, 2018

A common complaint of patients is that they look tired but don’t feel tired. This is often the result of bulging fat pockets in the lower lid combined with a tight attachment of the skin at the junction of the lower lid and the cheek known as the tear trough. It is frequently one of the early signs associated with the aging process. Dr. Forley approaches this concern with both a non-surgical and a surgical option. Camouflage of the bulging fat can be achieved with the use of an injectable hyaluronic filler at the tear trough to aid in blending the transition across the lid-cheek junction. Although this can improve early changes, the fundamental cause of the problem remains unaltered. An advanced surgical technique that Dr. Forley utilizes to treat this issue involves releasing the attachment of the tear trough below the eyelid from the inside so that there is no external scar. At the same time, the fat from the lower lid is repositioned to extend across the lid-cheek junction. This changes the orientation of the fat so that the bulging is reduced in conjunction with filling the depression below the lower lid. This procedure is known as a transconjunctival fat transposition lower blepharoplasty. During your consultation, Dr. Forley will discuss the options that would work best in your individual situation.

NECKTITE

June 30th, 2018

Even small amounts of excessive fat in the neck can produce undesirable contour fullness as we age. When the fat is accompanied by changes in skin tone and elasticity, the reduction of fat alone may produce the unintended consequence of skin redundancy or pleating. The NeckTite procedure provides a minimally invasive option, under local anesthesia, for combining fat sculpting with skin tightening. It utilizes an applicator below the skin to administer a layer of controlled radiofrequency energy that results in gradual contraction and tightening of the skin over 6 months without surgery and without scars. The combination of fat contouring and skin tightening can produce striking changes in the appearance of the neck that can last for years.

TREATMENT OF PERIORBITAL VEINS

March 31st, 2018

As the aging process progresses, facial veins may appear more visible. The area around the eye, known as the periorbital region, is a frequent site for visible veins. These can become quite prominent and detract from the aesthetics of the eye. They are difficult to conceal and are a frequent complaint of patients concerned about their appearance. Fortunately, a safe and effective treatment option exists with the Ellipse Nordlys Nd:YAG laser. This device uses a specific wavelength of light that is absorbed by the red blood cells found within veins. The resulting heat that occurs results in the eventual elimination of blood flow through the veins due to the collapse of the vessel walls. The veins will disappear when blood doesn’t flow through them. The deeper veins remain untouched so there is no functional effect when treating the superficial veins. Minimal discomfort is associated with this rapidly performed treatment. One or more laser sessions may be required depending on the extent of the problem.

ULTHERAPY® FOR MEN

February 24th, 2018

Sagging of the face and neck with loss of jawline definition is a frequent complaint of patients as the aging process progresses. Men are particularly focused on the sagging neck as an indicator of an older appearance. However, they are less likely to accept surgery to treat the problem and are more inclined to pursue non-invasive options to improve laxity .

Ultherapy® is a non-invasive treatment that involves the application of focused ultrasound energy to the deep layers below the skin. A gradual tightening and lifting effect of the face and neck over 3-6 months results from the response of the body to the heat that is delivered. It has minimal if any downtime and is usually performed awake with some oral medication to reduce the discomfort that is associated with the procedure. Patients can resume normal activities immediately after the treatment and rarely require any pain medication or have any bruising. Maintenance treatments are usually performed at 18-24 months.
