Breast Augmentation or Breast Lift | Huntsville Cosmetic SurgeryBreast Augmentation or Breast Lift – Which is Right for You?

Have you decided to make changes to your body? Perhaps you have noticed the changes from aging, or you have finished having babies and breast feeding – you are ready to give your bust line a rejuvenation. But how to proceed is the question – a breast lift or breast implants?

Breast augmentation, commonly referred to as a boob job, involves using breast implants or fat transfer to increase the size of your breasts. The procedure can achieve a more rounded breast shape, improve asymmetry in the breasts and restore breast volume. Breast volume is often lost after significant weight loss or pregnancy.

What breast augmentation surgery can do:

  • Improve balance of breast and hip contours
  • Increase fullness and projection of your breasts
  • Enhance your self-image and self-confidence.

What breast augmentation cannot do:

  • Correct severely drooping breasts

A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, raises the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast contour.

With aging, weight loss or after pregnancy, the nipple area becomes enlarged. A breast lift will reduce this, as well.

What a breast lift can do:

  • Rejuvenate your figure with a breast profile that is more youthful and uplifted.

What a breast lift cannot do:

  • Change the size of your breasts
  • Round out the upper part of your breasts

Oftentimes, breast lifting can be done at the same time as breast augmentation.

Dr. McLain will consult with you on your goals for a more youthful appearance. He will help you decide what will work best for you – breast augmentation, breast lift -or both.

Rhinoplasty and Septoplasty - Which is Right for You? | Huntsville SurgeryRhinoplasty and Septoplasty – Which is Right for You?

So you are ready to change the look of your face, particularly your nose. Perhaps you think it is too big for your face, or it has a bump, or is crooked. Then you may be a candidate for rhinoplasty.

Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty, commonly referred to as a nose job, is a plastic surgery procedure for altering and reconstructing the nose. While rhinoplasty may be used to change the appearance of the nose, it may also improve breathing.

What rhinoplasty can do:

  • Change nose size in relation to facial balance
  • Change nose width at the bridge or in the size and position of the nostril
  • Improve your profile getting rid of visible humps or depressions on the bridge
  • Improve a nasal tip that is large or bulbous
  • Improve nasal asymmetry

Keeping in mind that everyone’s face is asymmetric to some degree, the goal with rhinoplasty is to create facial balance and correct proportion.

Septoplasty

Septoplasty is a surgical procedure to straighten the bone and cartilage between your two nostrils known as the septum. This surgery is used to correct a deviated septum.

A deviated, or crooked septum occurs when the septum is shifted towards one side of the nasal cavity. This can cause difficulty breathing and reduce airflow due to blockage of the nasal airway.

During this surgery, the septum is straightened and repositioned to the middle of the nose. The procedure may include cutting and removing parts of the septum before reinserting them into the correction position.

You may find that you will want rhinoplasty to change facial symmetry, but you also need septoplasty to correct your deviated septum. These are often performed during the same surgery.

Dr. McLain will do a full physical examination to determine what is best for you. He will also discuss your goals in wanting to improve your facial symmetry. So whether you need one or both procedures, he will be able to tell what will work best in your case.

Eyebrow Shaping

Noninvasive brow lift surgery makes use of a combination of cosmetic injectable treatment for reshaping and rejuvenating the eyebrows. This is performed without undergoing a surgical procedure. The most popular form involves a combination of RF or laser energy, dermal fillers, and neuromodulator injectables.

McLain Surgical Arts, led by cosmetic plastic surgeon Dr. Landon D. McLain, provides safe and proven med spa services, such as brow shaping to patients in Huntsville, Madison, Florence, Decatur, Scottsboro, Cullman, Athens, Alabama, and surrounding locations.

Brow Lift Using Botox Injections

Botox involves a neurotoxin called botulinum toxin that essentially freezes the nerve signals to certain muscles of the face. The muscles are essentially forced to relax through this method, which reduces the appearance of dynamic wrinkles. Botox injections consist of botulinum toxin type A.

This injectable is capable of relaxing those muscles responsible for forehead lines, crow’s feet, and brow furrows. It helps in smoothing the lines to provide a younger and smoother looking skin in the brow region.

Combining Botox and Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers complement the effects provided by Botox. They are capable of reversing the effects of aging related volume loss. Restylane, Juvederm, and other FDA approved dermal fillers rely on hyaluronic acid for stimulating elastin and collagen growth. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body that results in younger and fuller looking skin.

Sculptra and Radiesse are other common dermal fillers that use poly-L-lactic acid and calcium hydroxyapatite, respectively. This is for stimulating production of new collagen in the body. Dermal fillers offer revolutionary results in terms of skin rejuvenation. They allow for youthful contouring and natural looking fullness without undergoing a brow lift surgery.

If there is natural volume loss or a hollowing out in the brow area, the surgeon will recommend Juvederm Voluma. This can lift the brow area and restore volume.

Laser or RF Skin Tightening for Noninvasive Brow Lift

Nonsurgical eyebrow lift can involve procedures, such as laser-based skin tightening. These techniques make use of controlled laser energy or radiofrequency for heating the lower layers of the dermis. The procedure ignites targeted collagen production and helps in tightening the appearance of excess and loose skin.

The treatment can help improve drooping and sagging skin in the brow area with just one treatment. In addition, RF and laser therapy are excellent options for patients looking to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It also helps in reducing discoloration and scarring along the skin’s surface.

How Does Noninvasive Eyebrow Lift Work?

Nonsurgical eyebrow lifts make use of a combination of elastin and collagen induction for smoothing the skin. They also include neuromodulator injections. Botox can reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles and fine lines while dermal fillers help in lifting and filling static wrinkles.

They also address natural volume loss in areas, such as midface and tear trough. Nonsurgical brow lift procedure can usually be completed in a single in-office procedure. Juvederm and Botox are commonly injected at different sites and can be safely administered in the same appointment.
