It’s natural for us to want to look our best and that can mean making a few tweaks to our natural appearance. Especially as we age, certain features may develop wrinkles, or the skin may begin to sag in a way that doesn’t reflect how lively and youthful we feel inside. Facial plastic surgery with Sacramento surgeon Shahriar Mabourakh can accomplish several things, including eliminating signs of aging from the face, rejuvenating the skin, and correcting or defining a certain feature that may not look the way we’d like. Folsom Plastic Surgery and Stockton Cosmetic Surgery Center invite you to explore the facial plastic surgery options available at our practice; contact one of our offices via email to set up a consultation with Dr. Mabourakh and the team.
Face lift surgery is designed to eliminate signs of aging, such as creases between the nose and mouth, jowls, or folds and fat deposits around the neck. During surgery, Dr. Mabourakh trims excess fat and skin, tightens the facial muscles, and redrapes the skin on the face and neck. Incisions are typically made in the hairline at the temples, extending in front of the ear and continuing behind the earlobe to the lower scalp, so any scars from the incisions are concealed in the hairline and the natural creases of the face.
Fat Injections (from the patient)
Fat transfer is popular for patients who wish to augment a certain feature of the face with extra volume. Fat is harvested from a part of the body such as the abdomen, hips, thighs and knees, purified, and injected into the cheeks, lips, chin or buttocks. This provides more permanent enhancement than a dermal filler or other injectable treatment. Read more on fat injection in my blog section.
Rhinoplasty is a nose reshaping surgery that can accomplish several goals:
- reduce or increase the size of the nose
- reduce or remove a hump on the bridge of the nose
- alter the tip or bridge of the nose
- narrow the nostrils
- change the angle between the nose and upper lip
- correct a birth defect or injury from trauma
- relieve breathing problems (e.g., repairing a deviated septum)
During surgery, the bone and cartilage are reshaped to create the appearance that the patient desires. Contact Rhinoplasty specialist Dr. Mabourakh for your consultation.
Endoscopic Brow Lift
A brow lift will treat drooping brows and improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles in that area. The procedure is performed with the use of an endoscope, a small viewing instrument. The endoscopic approach allows Dr. Mabourakh to make only minimal, small incisions and also promotes a faster recovery. An open brow lift is the traditional form of the surgery and is an alternative to endoscopic treatment; this method utilizes normal incisions and requires a longer recovery.
Clinically known as blepharoplasty, eyelid surgery is designed to dramatically reshape and redefine the skin around your eyes. As one of the most transformative facial plastic surgery procedures, eyelid surgery restores vitality and radiance, while improving the aesthetic of your face by eliminating excess skin and fat deposits that cause the upper eyelids to droop or sag.
Achieve crave-worthy, more voluptuous lips in a matter of minutes thanks to injectable lip fillers. Dr. Mabourakh thoroughly examines your skin, discusses with you your problem areas, and configures a customized treatment plan to help you reach your cosmetic goals. Using safe and effective dermal fillers such as Restylane®, Perlane, PREVELLE™, or JUVÉDERM®, our team can artistically enhance the beauty and fullness of your lips. If you are searching for a longer-lasting result, Dr. Mabourakh may suggest fat transfer, a revolutionary technique in which your body’s own tissues are used to restore volume to the lips.
Otoplasty surgery reduces the size of large, prominent ears, or repositions protruding ears closer to the head. Ear surgery is frequently performed on children between the ages of four and 14 and at all ages for adults. Dr. Mabourakh can also surgically repair an earlobe that has torn or damage caused by a gauge.
Neck lift addresses common signs of aging in the neck area, including excess sagging skin that contributes to “turkey neck” or “turkey wattle.” Neck lift, whether it’s a full, partial, or lower procedure, removes excess sagging skin and tightens muscles of the neck that have begun to separate and sag. Neck liposuction can also be performed to eliminate fullness around the neck and jowl area to create a more sculpted look around the jaw line.
The chin plays an important role in the balance and harmony of the face. If the chin is naturally weak or receding, it can make the nose look larger in proportion. Alternately, a chin that juts out prominently can disrupt the facial harmony. Chin surgery addresses these scenarios by either bolstering the chin with an artificial implant, or reducing the bone of a prominent chin to create a more pleasing facial balance.
