Facial Plastic Surgery & Nonsurgical Rejuvenation – Dr. Mackenzie Santa Barbara
As the face ages, the skin and underlying structures and tissues begin to deteriorate, causing the skin to wrinkle and the face to sag. These changes can make a person look much older and often create a disconnect with what the person feels inside (younger) versus what he or she sees in the mirror (older).
However, you don’t have to accept the facial aging process without a fight! While we cannot stop the deterioration of the facial tissues completely, we offer plastic surgical and nonsurgical procedures in Santa Barbara that can restore and repair the effects of aging and sun damage. Face lift, eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), brow lift are surgical methods to support aging soft tissues or remove excess skin.
Volume restoration is a key component in planning many facial rejuvenation procedures, because as we age, we lose volume in our faces. Adding volume to the face or lips is also commonly done in the office using several injectables available for specific purposes. See our page on fillers for more information.
Neuromodulators such as Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are very popular office procedures that are used to soften the lines of the face. These procedures can adjust the skin and improve the underlying tissues, get rid of the angry or tired look, and restore a more youthful, full, and vibrant face.
Sun damage (photo aging), which is seen as pigmentation changes, wrinkles, and broken blood vessels, can also be improved with nonsurgical methods, such as Intense Pulsed Light and Photodynamic Therapy. Sun damage can also be treated with topical products and spa treatments, so be sure to check out our spa and skin care services.
Not all facial cosmetic surgery is for the correction of aging. Many common facial plastic surgery procedures improve form and shape, and these include rhinoplasty, otoplasty, and cheek and chin augmentation.
