Cosmetic Surgery Q & A

by Elliott H. Rose, MD

Is Cosmetic Surgery of the Face for Me?

As we age, the deeper tissues of the face gradually lose their tone and elasticity and respond to the downward pull of gravity in a very predictable fashion. No one is immune from these anatomical alterations of aging, although the process may be accelerated by smoking, sun exposure, and the stresses of ordinary life. A face/neck lift can “set back the clock” by trimming away loose skin, tightening the underlying muscles, and restoring a more youthful structure of the face.

Why Should I See Dr. Rose for Facial Cosmetic Surgery?

Dr. Rose offers the latest in technological advances in less invasive plastic surgery. These incremental approaches rejuvenate the skin to achieve a more natural look rather than a plastic appearance. Most patients start at an early age and continue periodically with “maintenance” procedures so they can keep a fresh, youthful appearance well into their 70s. Some of the facial cosmetic surgery procedures that Dr. Rose offers include:

  • Face/neck lift
  • Mini brow lift
  • Eyelid surgery
  • Nasal surgery
  • Microliposuction
  • Laser resurfacing
  • Chin or cheek augmentation
  • Lip enhancement with dermal strip graft
  • Buccal fat extraction
  • Fat injections for smile lines, lips, frown line
  • Botox injections for frown lines, Crow’s feet and forehead creases
  • Fillers for lip lines and deep laugh lines

What’s a multi-vector face lift?

In the multivector face/neck lift, the negative vectors of aging are scientifically approached by pulling each portion of the face (brows, temples, cheeks, jawline and neck) in a reverse direction of the gravitational pull to correct that tired look. Higher cheekbone are restored, the cheek jowls flattened, and the neck/jawline area sculpted into a fresh, natural look. The face/neck lift is performed as an outpatient under intravenous sedation anesthesia (you are totally unconscious) administered by a Board Certified anesthesiologist at our state of the art AAAASF outpatient facility, The Aesthetic Surgery Center, After your facelift, the skin will continue to age at its normal rate but the clock is “reset”. Periodic “maintenance” procedures requiring much less surgical intervention are recommended usually at two to three-year intervals to keep the face fresh and youthful well into your seventies or eighties.

Am I a Candidate for Body Contouring (Body Sculpting)?

The ideal candidate is someone who watches his/her diet, exercises, does not smoke, and who, otherwise, is reasonably fit. Body contouring entails safe, minimally invasive techniques of modified tumescent liposuction and/or skin trimming (i.e. following pregnancy or weight loss) to achieve the most sculpted look. Pre-surgical computer imaging offers the patient a realistic assessment of body contour alterations.  A  hollow tube (cannula) is used to extract the liquified unwanted fat pockets from specific body areas that have been unresponsive to proper diet and exercise, including thighs, knees, and buttocks; abdomen and hips; upper arms and above the breasts; calfs, knees and ankles. Many of these fat accumulations persist because they are hormonally sensitive to normal levels of circulating estrogen or testosterone. The procedure is most effective in patients who are within 15 to 20% of normal body weight. The firmer the skin, the greater the retraction and redraping following liposuction.

Services offered are as follows:

  • Liposuction of abdomen and hips
  • Liposuction of thighs, knees and buttocks
  • Liposuction of arms
  • Adbominoplasty (“tummy tuck”)
