Facial Plastic Surgery in Washington DC
The goal of facial plastic surgery in Washington DC, is to reshape facial features – such as the nose, cheeks, ears, chin, forehead and neck – in a way that presents a younger, slimmer, and more proportional look. You may want to change your appearance after an injury, to alter a congenital issue, to combat the effects of aging, or to correct facial irregularities.
Once you have decided which procedure is the answer to your cosmetic needs, consult with Dr. Michael Somenek, a board-certified plastic surgeon, to discuss the benefits, expectations, and potential risks. He is one of the most trusted authorities on facial surgeries and will be your guide on your journey to enrich your physical appearance.
A facelift (rhytidectomy) can help address and correct visible signs of aging by removing excess and lax skin in the face and neck areas. A facelift involves re-draping the facial skin and smoothing the jawline to create a more toned and youthful look to the face. Facelifts can be performed in combination with other facial cosmetic procedures. Dr. Somenek has also created a mini-facelift if you are only looking for small adjustments for your facial plastic surgery in Washington DC.
Dr. Somenek specializes in rhinoplasties and has trained under some of the best in the world. Nasal surgery can shape the nose and correct structural and functional issues to make it more visually appealing. For example, a rhinoplasty procedure can straighten a crooked nose, remove an unwanted hump, or create a more refined profile. If you are unhappy with a prior procedure from another clinic, we also offer revision rhinoplasties.
Eyelid and Brow Lifts
If others often accidently mistake you for being angry, then a brow lift, or forehead lift, can provide a remedy by lifting the brow and smoothing out wrinkled areas of the forehead.
For many, the first signs of aging appear in the areas around the eyes. Eyelid surgery (also known as blepharoplasty) can help eliminate the appearance of tired-looking, heavy, or puffy eyelids. This procedure is typically performed on an outpatient basis in our DC practice, using intravenous sedation or a local anesthetic. Dr. Somenek makes incisions along the eyelids’ natural folds, rendering them virtually invisible. As people often look us in the eyes when they meet us for the first time, a brow or eyelid lift is a great way to leave a positive first impression.
Scar Revision and Hair Restoration
Scar revision procedures can help conceal unsightly scars, with results contingent upon your skin type and the size and location of the scar. While a scar cannot be completely removed, we can conceal or reposition it to your satisfaction.
Hair loss is one of the body processes that concerns people the most – especially because it is not easy to hide. Dr. Somenek is knowledgeable about numerous causes of hair loss, as well as potential treatments for regrowth. Set up a consultation with him to receive a personalized treatment plan that can restore volume and length to your hair.
Other Facial Augmentations in Washington DC
There are many ways of rejuvenating your look through local facial plastic surgery. Are you sensitive about the shape and size of your chin or ears? You do not have to worry about those irregularities anymore if you choose to receive a chin augmentation or an otoplasty (ear surgery) which can adjust them into a more appealing shape. To reverse the effects of earring damage, you can ask us about earlobe repair as well.
If you are aiming for a more attractive smile, an upper lip lift surgery or a simple lip augmentation can work wonders. When combined with a buccal fat pad reduction in the cheeks, you will want to show off a brand-new smile that will light up the room.
