Otoplasty Surgery at McLain Surgical ArtsRefining the Look of Your Ears

If you don’t like the look of your ears, if you think they stick out too much, or if you want to refine your overall look, you may want to consider otoplasty. If your child has protruding ears, otoplasty is a relatively simple procedure to correct that before entering school.

Otoplasty refers to surgical and non-surgical procedures for correcting deformities and defects of the pinna, or outer ear. The procedure may be used for reconstructing a defective, deformed, or absent outer ear.

The objective is to make the ears more proportionate to the face. It is particularly difficult for young children who have prominent ears. Ears that stick out can make life miserable from the constant teasing by other children. In most cases, repositioning the ears back alongside the head will solve the problem.

The sooner in life the problem is corrected, the better. Ear surgery, or otoplasty can be performed on children as young as four or five years old, and of course, at any time for adults.

Good candidates for ear surgery include:

Children who are:

  • Healthy, without life-threatening illnesses or untreated chronic ear infections.
  • 5 years or older, or whose ear cartilage is stable enough.
  • Cooperative and follow instructions well.

Teenagers and Adults who are:

  • Healthy and do not have a life-threatening illness or other issues that may cause a problem with healing.
  • Positive about the outcome of ear surgery, and who have realistic expectations.
  • Non-smokers

Whether you are considering otoplasty for yourself, or your child, Dr. McLain will discuss with you all of your options and will help you manage your expectations. He and his staff will be able to answer any questions you may have at your consultation.

Dr. McLain will also tell you what you may expect before and during the process, and he will instruct you on aftercare, as well.

Have you tried diet and exercise to get your fanny into shape? Are you not getting the results that you had hoped for? You may want to consider a Brazilian butt lift.

The Brazilian butt lift is a cosmetic procedure that offers a permanent solution to achieving more shapely buttocks.

This procedure is a specialized fat transfer procedure that improves the size and shape of the buttocks without the use of implants. Excess fat is removed from the abdomen, hips, lower back or thighs with liposuction, and then a portion of the fat is strategically injected into the buttocks.

Dr. McLain can improve the proportions of the entire lower body with Brazilian butt lift surgery, helping you lose fat in common problem areas while enhancing the buttocks. The results can last for many years to come.

The shape and proportion of your buttocks are largely determined by genetics. Your skeletal structure and how your body stores fat will also influence the appearance of the lower body. While diet and exercise can help, many times you may still end up with flat buttocks. This is largely due to genetics.

Brazilian butt lift surgery can help overcome genetics and give you the shapely buttocks that you desire. The procedure will also help reshape surrounding areas such as the hips and lower back, and thighs.

You may consider Brazilian butt lift surgery to:

  • Make your clothes fit better
  • Reduce fat pockets on your hips, thighs, or belly
  • Enhance the curves of your lower body
  • Give a more youthful, shapely appearance to your lower body
  • Enhance your overall proportions

Despite its name, Brazilian butt lift surgery will not address saggy, excess skin on the buttocks or thighs. Dr. McLain will talk with you about adding thigh or buttock lift surgery to address these issues.

If you want to change the shape of your buttocks to have a more shapely figure, schedule a consultation with Dr. McLain. He will discuss all of your options as well as what you may expect your results to be with Brazilian butt lift surgery.

Improving Your Looks With Facial Implant Surgery | Huntsville Cosmetic SurgeryIf you are looking to improve the overall look and symmetry of your face, you may want to consider facial implants.

Facial implants are specially formed solid materials compatible with human tissues. They are designed to enhance or augment the physical structure of your face.

If you are bothered by a small chin, week jaw, or lack of facial contour, cosmetic surgery with facial implants may be your answer.

A good candidate for facial implant surgery is someone in good health who has reasonable expectations. Before the surgery, you will have a consultation with Dr. McLain. He will discuss your medical history and talk about your expectations and what is best for you.

Cheek Augmentation

The goal of cheek augmentation is to add volume and lift to the cheeks. As we age, it is common to lose volume in our face, and the skin begins to sag. You may also consider this procedure if you have cheeks that are considered flat or thin.

Your cheek augmentation will result in fuller and possibly softer-appearing cheeks. In many cases, the cheeks also appear lifted.

Chin Augmentation

The goal of chin augmentation is to enhance the contours of the chin, jawline and neck, thereby improving the overall facial appearance.

Chin implants are the most common type of chin augmentation. The placement of synthetic implants around the existing chin bone alters the underlying shape of the face, which enhances the balance of other facial features.

If you have a receding chin, this procedure will give your face a more contoured look. Chin implants can be placed either through small incisions made inside the mouth or under the chin. Dr. McLain will discuss with you what is best for your procedure.

Restoring facial harmony, or creating it where it is needed is the goal of cheek and chin implant surgery. Dr. McLain will advise you on what is best for the goals you are hoping to achieve.

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion has come up as a safe, highly effective, and proven noninvasive aesthetic procedure for providing smooth and glowing skin. Microdermabrasion is more cost effective as compared to cosmetic surgery even when performed by a qualified technician. Various aspects of the procedure will be discussed by the treatment provider during the initial consultation.

McLain Surgical Arts, led by cosmetic plastic surgeon Dr. Landon D. McLain, provides microdermabrasion skin exfoliating treatment to patients in Huntsville, Madison, Florence, Decatur, Scottsboro, Cullman, Athens, Alabama, and surrounding locations.

Cost Factors

The cost of microdermabrasion skin rejuvenation treatment depends on a number of factors. Geographic location of the practice is a key factor. Cost of any procedure is usually higher in large metropolitan areas as opposed to smaller towns in interior and rural locations.

Extent of treatment and experience and skills of the skin care expert that provides the treatment will make a difference to the overall costs. Surgery practices operating under the supervision of qualified and experienced surgeons offer specialized and more advanced microdermabrasion treatments.

Specialty of the treatment will impact the cost at a particular practice. Patients with specific skin types or conditions may find it better to receive their microdermabrasion treatment in a medical setting. Long term skin health and safety needs to be a top priority even though cost is important.

Multiple Treatments

A single microdermabrasion treatment is enough for patients to achieve their aesthetic goals or create significant improvements. However, multiple treatment sessions that are staggered over a period of time may be required for long lasting and extensive results. Best results are generally achieved after 4 – 6 treatments spaced a few weeks apart.

The practitioner, in case of multiple treatments, may offer a package cost that is more cost effective in comparison to individual sessions. During the initial consultation, the treatment provider will give you an estimate for the overall treatment.

Cost of Microdermabrasion in Comparison to Other Procedures

Laser skin resurfacing procedures, such as dermabrasion cost more as compared to microdermabrasion. Other advanced surgical procedures are significantly more expensive to microdermabrasion. This makes the procedure more cost effective as compared to plastic surgery. You don’t need to pay for the cost of surgical facility or general anesthesia as well.

Why Does the Cost of Microdermabrasion Differ?

There are several techniques that can be employed for performing microdermabrasion for skin care. A suitable device will be chosen depending on the imperfections and the depth of your skin. Multiple treatment sessions may drive up the cost of acne reduction and other similar treatments. Standards of quality, safety protocols, individualized care and the use of latest technology will also determine the overall treatment dollar amount.

Options for Financing

Patients should ask the treatment provider’s staff for details on alternative financing options. Your treatment provider will provide you with information regarding different payment options before the procedure. Medical care financing firms provide loans for such procedures at easy monthly installments and reasonable interest rates.

Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Landon D. McLain receives patients from Huntsville, Madison, Florence, Decatur, Scottsboro, Cullman, Athens, Alabama, and nearby areas for microdermabrasion skin exfoliating treatments.
