If there is a facial feature you have always wanted to change, or if time and the elements have caused lines to furrow your brow, bags to develop under your eyes and your facial skin to sag, Gallas Plastic Surgery & Vein Center can help reverse it. Dr. Mennen Gallas, a double-board-certified plastic and general surgeon, performs the most advanced facial plastic surgery available, to lift your facial features and your spirits, too. Multiple procedures can be performed in one convenient visit… so that you can put your best face forward.
Facelift procedures are used to tighten loose facial skin for a younger appearance. They remove wrinkles and sagging skin caused by the sun, stress, exposure and gravity. A facelift smooths the skin in the face and neck areas to help you appear younger-looking and refreshed. Dr. Gallas uses state-of-the-art facelift techniques to subtly tighten and tone the skin, bringing it closer to the jawline and facial structure in a harmonious, natural way.
A facelift is ideal for men and women who have experienced a loss of skin elasticity and muscle tone in the face area or who have developed jowls and deep creases from the nose to the corners of the mouth (“nasal-labial folds”) or from the mouth corners to the jaw line (“marionette lines”). It is beneficial for people who have developed facial wrinkles which give them a tired, aged look and for those who want a more youthful jawline and neck contour.View Gallery
The neck can be the first area to show signs of aging as the skin starts to lose its elasticity. This is also true for those who have lost weight. Whether it is band lines, excess skin or fat, a neck lift can bring your neck back into shape and renew your confidence, especially to wear clothes with a more revealing neckline. Liposuction, used in addition to a neck lift, can also remove fat deposits in the neck, for a sleeker appearance. There is no ideal age for neck-lift surgery. Patients may range from their 30s onward.View Gallery
Many of the earliest signs of aging occur around our eyes and forehead. Gravity causes the brow tissue to fall slowly. We compensate for this by contracting the forehead muscle more and more. This results in a false appearance of excess upper eyelid skin, hooded skin overhanging the eye corner and transverse lines on the forehead. Muscle overactivity in these areas results in frown lines and creases across the bridge of the nose. Each of these changes occurs to a different degree and at different ages in each patient. The result is someone who looks older, more tired, angry or sad. Restoring a relaxed shape and position to the brow and modifying the overactive muscles can have a dramatic effect on appearance. A brow lift elevates your eyebrows and softens the lines and wrinkles of the forehead, giving a more youthful and rested appearance.View Gallery
Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Lift)
Cosmetic eyelid surgery is a common surgery performed on either the upper or lower lids to remove the excess skin that makes the eyes look tired. The results can take years off your appearance by creating a more alert, rejuvenated appearance. Some people have eyelid surgery to correct problems that are a result of aging, while others have inherited traits such as under eye bags that cause them to seek treatment in their 20s or 30s. Even the best night’s rest can’t erase tired, drooping eyes and puffy pouches in the lower lids that make you look tired. Your eyes may also make you look older than you are. Blepharoplasty can help by correcting sagging eyelids, removing excess upper eyelid skin and fatty padding from beneath the eyes. Blepharoplasty is an excellent way to rejuvenate the eye area.View Gallery
Rhinoplasty (Nose Surgery)
The nose is one of the most defining features of the face. With rhinoplasty, your nose can be sculpted and refined to better harmonize with your face. This procedure can also correct nasal deformities and may improve nasal breathing.View Gallery
Chin & Cheek Implants
Chin and cheek implants give the face stronger contours and better balance and proportion. They are often recommended along with rhinoplasty to enhance the facial features.View Gallery
Otoplasty (Ear Reshaping)
This is a commonly performed procedure to reshape the ears to create an improved or less conspicuous appearance. Very often this involves the creation and accentuation of the normal folds in the ear as well as turning the ear closer to the side of the head. “Pinning” back the outstanding ear de-emphasizes the appearance of the ear(s) and restores the proper proportions to the face. Prominent ears are the result of different development of the ear cartilage. Children have more flexible ears and this makes correcting the problem easier. Adults can also have this procedure performed easily and successfully.View Gallery
