Face Surgery

The men and women we consider to be especially attractive do not necessarily have perfect facial features. More often than not, they appeal to us because their eyes, nose, cheeks, chin, and lips are in harmony and balance with each other. The nose is in proper relationship to the eyes and chin. The cheek bones have an appropriately strong definition in relation to the length of the face and the size of the nose.

Few of us are fortunate enough to be born with these ideally proportioned facial features. Nature’s omission, however, can be rectified by aesthetic plastic surgery. Dr. Robert Singer customizes your procedure(s) to your needs and desires and uses minimally invasive facial plastic surgery techniques whenever possible.

At his La Jolla center in San Diego, he has performed advanced facial plastic surgery procedures on several thousand patients from all over the world. He can create stunning results through the procedures listed below.

Brow lift & Forehead Lift

Dr. Singer offers several different forehead lift / eyebrow lift techniques, including the minimally invasive endoscopic brow lift. Some patients are born with a low brow position and in others, the skin and tissue of the brows and forehead can begin to droop as we age, creating a consistently angry or tired appearance. During your consultation, he will advise you on the best method for achieving the results you want. Some patients receive a facelift or eyelid surgery at the same time as a brow lift.

Buccal Fat Contouring / Cheek Reduction

In this procedure, Dr. Singer corrects chubby or chipmunk cheeks. The fat that creates this appearance is called “buccal fat.” These fat pads are partially removed during the surgery in order to reduce the cheeks for a slimmer, more chiseled appearance.

Chin & Cheek Augmentation

Both chin and cheek augmentation can create a new, natural look that is in harmony with other features. A weak or recessive chin can be improved with a chin implant, microfat grafts, or injectable facial fillers. Similarly, cheek implants can enhance flat cheeks. Chin and cheek augmentation can also be performed in conjunction with other facial plastic surgery procedures, such as a facelift, for a comprehensive enhancement.

Ear Surgery (Otoplasty)

Excessively large or protruding ears are often a source of ridicule, teasing, and embarrassment. Aesthetic ear surgery, called otoplasty, can reshape the “outstanding” ear, by altering its size, position, or configuration. The improvement, which lasts a lifetime, usually results in less self-consciousness and greater self-confidence. Otoplasty may be performed on adults or children.

Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

Dr. Singer provides both upper eyelid surgery and lower eyelid surgery to remove eye bags and/or sagging skin and fat above and below the eyes. The incisions are placed in inconspicuous locations so that there are minimal scars, and the surgery provides a natural-looking but tighter, more youthful eye area. Some patients receive a facelift or brow lift simultaneously with an eyelid lift.

Facelift

A face lift (rhytidectomy) is one of the most sought-after and satisfying aesthetic surgical procedures available. It can remove many, but usually not all, wrinkles. It can also remove much of the sagging skin and excess fat of the face and neck. The facelift will give you a fresher, more youthful appearance that looks completely natural, avoiding an over-operated appearance. Dr. Singer performs several variations on the facelift procedure, including the short scar technique, limited incision facelift, maintenance facelift, (mini or mid facelift), MACS Lifts, partial facelift, and secondary facelift. As a leader in facial plastic surgery, Dr. Singer can help you decide which technique is right for you.

Lip Augmentation

As we age, the lips lose their fullness. The distance from the tip of the nose to the upper lip lengthens as gravity makes the upper lip descend. Dr. Singer can give you fuller, lusher lips through advanced surgical lip lift techniques like local flaps and lip shortening or through fat grafting. He also offers temporary non-surgical lip augmentation, such as injectable facial fillers.

Microfat Grafts

Microfat grafts involve extracting fat cells from areas where you have more fat than you want, such as the abdomen or buttocks, and injecting those cells in the face and neck, where more volume is needed. This process begins with removal of fat through a tiny incision from an area of excess, after which the fat is treated before it is injected into the designated areas for a fuller, younger appearance.

Mini or Mid-Facelift

We live in a youth-oriented society with an emphasis on fitness and a youthful appearance. Patients who show early signs of aging in their 30s to 50s may attain a significant improvement and rejuvenation with less invasive, short-scar or limited-incision “maintenance” procedures such as a Mini Facelift or Mid Facelift. These less invasive face lift procedures diminish the progression of the signs of aging, and avoid the more extensive procedures that would be necessary later.

Neck Lift

If you have a double chin, jowls, or loose, sagging skin on the neck, Dr. Singer can remove the excess tissue and tighten the area in a neck lift procedure. Some patients choose to have a neck lift and a facelift simultaneously.

Rhinoplasty

A “nose job” is one of the most popular facial plastic surgery procedures. It can alter the size and shape of your nose to your desired appearance, including correcting a hump or broken nose, changing the size of the nostrils, and shortening the tip of the nose.
