Facial Rejuvenation Q & A

What is Facial Rejuvenation?

At the Plastic Surgery Center of Baton Rouge, Dr. Williams offers you a variety of Facial Rejuvenation surgeries:

  • Facelift
  • Neck lift
  • Blepharoplasty
  • Nanofat grafting

What is Non-Surgical Facial Rejuvenation?

Non-Surgical Facial Rejuvenation procedures include:

Botox

This is the only approved treatment that targets the underlying cause of frown lines and crow’s feet wrinkles.

During a BOTOX treatment, Dr. Williams injects tiny amounts of a highly purified botulinum toxin protein into the identified problem areas on your face. This popular procedure improves mild to severe fine lines and wrinkles by reducing the muscle activity beneath your skin.

Liquid Face Lift

A Liquid Face Lift is a non-surgical injection of a combination of injectable fillers such as Juvederm, Voluma XC Volvella, Fat Grafting and Botox to contour and lift the face.

Skin Resurfacing

Facial skin Resurfacing is a procedure to remove the upper layer of the skin with regeneration of new skin from the deeper skin layers. The newly regenerated skin helps sun damaged skin, fine lines, and wrinkles and creates a more luminous skin.
 
There are a number of types of Skin Resurfacing performed at the Plastic Surgery Center of Baton Rouge, including:

Fraxel Dual Laser

This laser treatment uses two laser wavelengths to treat both the superficial and deep layers of the skin.

Vampire Face Lift

Using a special pen fine needles are used to puncture the skin at a controlled depth and the Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is applied to this area. The fine skin punctures allow the cell stimulating factors of the PRP to stimulate the skin's own collagen production

Dermabrasion-Dermaplaning

This procedure removes the upper layer of the skin using a rotary abrasion technique. This procedure is often used for lining around the mouth and lips and acne scarring.

Chemical Peels

Both superficial and deeper peels apply a chemical to the skin that causes the upper layer of the skin to "peel."  This stimulates the deeper layers to regenerate new skin.

What is Surgical Facial Rejuvenation?

There are a number of Surgical Facial Rejuvenation options performed at the Plastic Surgery Center of Baton Rouge including:

MACS Face Lift (Minimal Access Cranial Suspension) Face Lift

Dr. Willaims uses this new technique by suturing and suspending the deep tissue of the face to the upper facial bony structures. This lifts the deep tissue vertically preventing the "windswept" appearance. this technique avoids pulling and tension of the skin preventing a "tight and pulled" look.

Neck  Lift (Platysmaplasty)

A Neck Lift is used to treat a sagging neck (DTurkeyWattle) and or neck bands. The surgery sutures and tightens and redrapes the neck muscles (Platysma). It is like creating a neck corset that defines the chin and neck jawline.

Brow Lift (Forehead Lift)

A Brow Lift will raise the low and sagging of the eyebrows, may help remove or improve the laxity and sagging of the upper eyelids, and remove and or improve the horizontal forehead lines and furrows and the creasing lines between the eye brows. 

Eyelid Surgery

Upper eyelid surgery removes excess skin and or fat to improve the laxity and sagging appearance of the upper eyelids.
 
Lower eyelid surgery may remove re-position protruding fat bags, remove excess skin, inject soft tissue fillers to improve hollowness and elevate and suture muscle and lower eyelid laxity. 

Nanofat grafting

Nanofat grafting uses excess fat taken from another part of your body to fill in lost volume in your face. Restoring soft tissue volume enhances your youthful appearance, adding to the effects of a facelift.

What does Facial Rejuvenation help improve?

You may want to consider Racial Rejuvenation surgery to correct any of the following signs of aging:

  • Droopy eyelids
  • Jowls on your cheeks
  • Vertical bands on your neck
  • Loose, saggy skin on your face or neck
  • Deep creases around the corners of your mouth

What should I expect from a Facial Rejuvenation surgery?

Dr. Williams tailors each Facial Rejuvenation surgery to your specific needs and aesthetic goals. You may not see immediate improvement directly after surgery because it typically takes several days or weeks for your skin to heal.

Facial Rejuvenation procedures aren’t extremely painful, but Dr. Williams may prescribe pain medication.

  • Bruising
