Cosmetic surgery is not something that is essential in the medical sense of the word. However, many people right here in San Francisco who feel that their appearance is letting them down may consider that for them at least, it is essential.In many cases, cosmetic surgery can be used to make you look years younger than you actually are, and in some instances can make your appearance different by altering the shape of your nose, perhaps.
There are many cosmetic surgery options in San Francisco, and they can and will vary depending upon what you want to achieve. For many of us, as we age, our skin begins to sag, and the neckline has loose skin under the chin and pouches of fat. We may suffer from drooping cheeks and wrinkles from too much sun. This may have the effect of making us look much older than we feel. In this case, one of the San Francisco cosmetic surgery options would be a facelift.
The Visage Rapid Recovery Facelift is a procedure that has been developed by our Dr. Alex Rabinovich and it differs from the traditional procedure by going deeper under the tissue and lifting the muscle back into its’ youthful position. It produces a much softer, more natural appearance, and does away with the tight look of the older procedure.
Another of the San Francisco cosmetic surgery options is orthognathic surgery. This can solve issues with jaw discrepancies where the jaws are not even, and the bite is incorrect.
Facial trauma may also require surgery in order to make good damage caused by an injury. Facial reconstruction will vary from one individual to another because of the nature of the injuries that have been caused. The most important priority is the treatment of any life-threatening issues which may affect the airways, the brain, and other vital parts. Once this has been achieved, facial reconstruction can be used to restore the appearance as much as possible.
San Francisco cosmetic surgery options also include eyelid surgery. This is a procedure that will lift droopy eyelids and remove excess skin around the eyes. In the worst cases, this can interfere with reading and driving, so is not necessarily only cosmetic. Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, can also be used on the lower eyelids to remove bags under the eyes and eliminate the puffy look that occurs.
Dr Rabinovich can perform all of these procedures and more, so if you are considering any form of cosmetic surgery, make an appointment to see him for a consultation when he can assess your condition and advise you of the most appropriate treatment.
