Facial Plastic Surgery

Regain Your Youth through Facial Plastic Surgery

Facelift Surgery

Face lift is a procedure designed to reduce or eliminate several of the more visible signs of aging, including deep creases and sagging facial skin. During face lift surgery, skin along the face and neck is lifted and the underlying muscles are tightened to produce a youthful-looking facial contour. Wrinkles are smoothed out and the skin is redraped, eliminating jowls and unattractive folds of skin near the neck.

In the past, face lift surgery tended to produce a tightened, stretched look that was anything but natural. At our practice in Fairfield County, the old face lift techniques were abandoned years ago. We utilize the most up-to-date methods to give our patients dramatic, yet natural-looking results. Dr. David Passaretti, our Connecticut plastic surgeon, tailors each face lift surgery to bring out the patient’s best features. For complete facial rejuvenation, we can also combine a face lift with eyelid surgery to give patients a more alert, refreshed appearance.

Rhinoplasty, or nasal reshaping, is a popular facial plastic surgery designed to enhance the appearance of the nose and improve facial symmetry. At our Connecticut practice, we perform rhinoplasty to correct large, bumpy, crooked, or otherwise disproportionate noses; we also use rhinoplasty in a reconstructive capacity to correct birth defects and other internal and external nasal irregularities.

The goal of rhinoplasty is to improve balance between the nose and other prominent facial features, including the eyes and chin. This may require only a subtle change or more significant nasal sculpting. When patients visit our practice for a rhinoplasty consultation, we encourage them to voice their concerns about their noses. The best results occur when Dr. Passaretti has a thorough understanding of patients' goals and they in turn have set realistic expectations for their surgery.

Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery is used to correct cosmetic eye problems as well as inherited traits that impair vision and contribute to a “droopy” or “tired” appearance. At our Connecticut practice, we approach eyelid surgery in several ways. We commonly perform eyelid surgery on the upper eyelids to remove overhanging skin that descends over the lids, and we also offer eyelid surgery on the lower lids to remove the excess skin and pockets of fat that cause unattractive “bags” under the eyes. By tightening the skin and muscle and removing small pockets of fat, we can make your eyes appear younger and give you a more attentive, alert look.

Eyelid surgery can produce amazing results, especially when combined with a face lift or wrinkle treatments like BOTOX® Cosmetic and JUVÉDERM®. Some of our Connecticut patients may benefit from upper or lower eyelid surgery alone, or simultaneous correction of the upper and lower lids with complete eyelid surgery. During your consultation at our office in Fairfield County, Connecticut, each eyelid surgery will be discussed in detail. Dr. Passaretti will make a treatment recommendation based on several factors, including the physical condition and thickness of your skin, your facial structure, as well as your personal goals for surgery.

Facial Laceration Repair

Dr. Passaretti can artfully repair a facial laceration, resulting in minimal scarring. Following a laceration, patients often go to the emergency room for treatment, which can result in unsightly scarring. Dr. Passaretti uses more precise techniques to repair these wounds, resulting in the best aesthetic results.

Mole Removal

Dr. Passaretti can remove unsightly facial moles. After a mole is removed, Dr. Passaretti will suture the skin closed carefully to minimize scarring. The removed mole tissue will be biopsied to ensure that it is not cancerous.

Chin Surgery

Chin surgery is used to either reduce or augment the chin. Both types can typically be performed through incisions made inside your mouth, so you will experience little to no visible scarring. If your chin is too wide or juts out too far from your face, Dr. Passaretti will carefully ablate some bone tissue and in some cases, remove fat tissue to soften your jaw line. If you feel that your chin is not prominent enough, which often creates the appearance of a double chin, we may recommend an implant. Biocompatible chin implants can add definition to your chin for a more proportionate profile.

Ear pinning, also known as otoplasty, can reshape your ears and change how they lay against the sides of the head. This procedure is a great option for patients whose ears are misshapen or began to protrude excessively during development. It can also correct deformities related to trauma or injury. Dr. Passaretti may use a variety of techniques to correct these imperfections. He takes great care to place incisions discreetly behind the ears or in their natural contours. Otoplasty patients, even those who undergo minor corrections, typically experience greatly improved confidence after this type of surgery.

Lip Augmentation

Lip augmentation can give you the fuller lips you desire and reduce the look of wrinkles on and around your lips. Dr. Passaretti can augment your lips using small, silicone implants that he inserts through small incisions at the corners of your smile. He may also recommend lip filler injections, which instantly plump your lips with volume that looks beautiful for several months. Dr. Passaretti will evaluate your lips to determine which option is best for your goals and budget.

Cheek Augmentation

If you lack the high cheekbones and facial contours you desire, cheek augmentation can give you the enhancement you desire. In some cases, patients are good candidates for cheek implants, which are biocompatible silicone implants that are placed beneath your skin through small incisions within your mouth. For less dramatic augmentation, he may use dermal filler injections. These injections can enhance your contours and fill in the sunken-in look that many patients develop with age.
