Over the years, the skin on the face and neck gradually loses its firm, youthful appearance in a process known as “skin laxity.” As the skin’s elasticity increases and facial volume decreases, areas may begin to droop, wrinkle, or appear hollow. Lifting procedures involve meticulously removing small sections of excess skin and restoring underlying tissue structures to their original positions for a more lifted look. With careful attention to your unique anatomy, Dr. Fortes can help you achieve natural-looking facelift and neck lift results that can lift, tighten, and add definition to your face and jawline.
Abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, removes excess skin and isolated fat from the abdominal area to create smoother contours and a flatter, firmer midsection. A tummy tuck is an ideal solution to abdominal skin laxity following pregnancy or significant weight loss. For patients with pockets of isolated stubborn fat, a tummy tuck often includes liposuction to refine the abdomen’s silhouette. With expert precision and advanced techniques, Dr. Fortes creates exquisitely natural tummy tuck results.
Due to a variety of factors, such as aging, hormonal changes, lifestyle factors, and genetics, many individuals experience pockets of fat that don’t seem to respond to diet and exercise. Liposuction targets specific areas to create slim and youthful contours. Through very small incisions, stubborn fat is permanently removed, and the remaining fat is meticulously sculpted to create smooth, natural-looking results. Liposuction can be applied to virtually any area of the body, including the abdomen, arms, legs, back, flanks, and submental area.
For patients with heavy eyelids or aging around the eyes, blepharoplasty is a relatively small surgical procedure that offers significant rejuvenation power. Because the eyes serve as a natural focal point of the face, lifting and refining the skin around them can revitalize your appearance in addition to alleviating some field-of-vision concerns. Blepharoplasty lifts the eyelids and sculpts underlying tissues to create a more vibrant look. With decades of experience, Dr. Fortes delivers impeccable upper and lower eyelid surgery results.
