The Facial and Cosmetic Surgery Center at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary offers blepharoplasty, eyelid surgery that can restore a healthy and youthful appearance, with a firmer and more attractive eye area. Read More.
Botox can improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) and “crow’s feet” at the outside corners of the eyes. It can also create a smoother appearance to the skin surface by preventing muscle contraction. Read More.
The brow and forehead are often the first facial areas to show signs of aging, showing frown lines, wrinkles across the forehead, deep furrows between the eyes, and a droopiness of the brows and upper lids. Brow lifts, also known as forehead lifts – often combined with upper eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) and/or a mini facelift – can rejuvenate your look. Read More.
The Chemical peel is used to improve the skin’s appearance by applying a chemical solution which causes the damaged outer layers of skin to “blister” and eventually peel off. They can diminish skin discoloration, such as sun spots, age spots, liver spots, freckles, or blotchiness. Read More.
Chin surgery can significantly alter a patient’s profile which, in turn, can greatly improve facial symmetry and contour. Most chin surgeries can be performed under local anesthesia; more complicated cases may be performed under general anesthesia in the operating room. Read More.
Your ears are one of the most visible parts of your body and can often require cosmetic repair. Some people simply wish to have old holes closed, which may have been torn or misplaced when piercing. While others may want to change the shape of their earlobes. Read More.
Hair loss is a common condition that affects both men and women, and can involve a receding hair line, balding in the crown region, overall thinning, loss of eyebrow hair, or traumatic hair loss from scars or skin cancer resections. Hair restoration surgery is a permanent solution that redistributes your own hair from the back of your scalp to the areas that need increased coverage. Read More.
The Carolyn and Peter Lynch Center for Laser and Reconstructive Surgery was made possible by the generosity of the Lynch family. Mass. Eye and Ear recently celebrated the dedication of the new interdisciplinary center that will change the lives of individuals with facial deformities. Read More.
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive skin-freshening technique that helps repair damaged facial skin. A dermatologic surgeon uses a device like a fine sandblaster to spray tiny crystals across the face, mixing gentle abrasion with suction to remove the dead, outer layer of skin (epidermis). As with other rejuvenation techniques, more than one treatment may be needed to reduce or remove fine wrinkles, unwanted pigmentation and acne scarring. Read More.
The mini facelift has an age-diminishing effect, making patient look younger, rested, and more energized. Facial rejuvenation is achieved by repositioning the skin on the lower face to eliminate sagging and droopiness. The mini facelift is safer than a full facelift and does not require general anesthesia (although general anesthesia is available upon request). Read More.
Otoplasty is ear surgery designed to pin back protruding ears, or to reduce the size of large ears so that they are in better proportion to the rest of the face. Otoplasty can also correct ear deformities from misshapen, damaged or missing ear elements.
Absence or major malformation of the ear is called microtia, which can also be treated at Facial and Cosmetic Surgery Center. Read More.
Perlane is an injectable cosmetic dermal filler used for severe wrinkles, facial folds (nasolabial folds), lip augmentation, facial depressions, and facial scarring.
Perlane is made from stabilized hyaluronic acid gel which easily adjusts and molds to the facial contours. The hyaluronic acid augments the body’s natural supply, which becomes depleted with age. Read More.
Radiesse is a popular wrinkle filler made from calcium hydroxyapatite, a naturally occurring substance in the body. Radiesse can replenish volume and smooth out smile and frown lines, as well as shape and contour the face. As well as restoring volume, Radiesse restores volume and promotes the growth of the body's own collagen, to provide lasting, but not permanent augmentation. Read More.
Restylane is a natural cosmetic filler consisting of hyaluronic acid which adheres to the skin as the water contained in the acid helps to retain volume under the skin’s surface. The acid acts as a magnet for water, which helps to preserve the renewed volume of the skin.
Restylane is injected under wrinkles and age lines of the face such as the nasolabial folds, “crow’s feet” at the corners of the eyes, forehead wrinkles, and lines around the mouth. It may also be used for filling age-related hollows and “orbital troughs” (around the eyes) or lip augmentation. Read More.
There are two basic types of rhinoplasty, open and closed. In an open rhinoplasty an inconspicuous incision is made in the skin below the tip of the nose that separates the nostrils (columella). A closed rhinoplasty uses an intranasal approach with incisions inside the nostrils. If the nasal structure is weak, a small piece of cartilage or bone may be used to build up the structure. Read More.
When the skin is in the process of recovering from an injury, whether the result of an accident, surgery, a burn, or acne, scarring will occur whenever multiple layers of the skin have been affected. Once a scar forms, it is permanent but may be made less visible, relocated surgically, or minimized in its prominence. Read More.
