Natural & Subtle Beauty

Facial plastic surgery procedures can be natural and subtle!

Are you wondering how you can improve the sagging of your eyelids, cheeks and neck skin? If your makeup is getting more difficult to apply, it may be time to remove the excess skin on your lids. If you have herniated fat around your eyes, you can look tired and older than you are.

If you have begun to pull the skin back when you look in the mirror, a cheek and neck lift procedure may be for you.

A cheek and neck lift, also known as a “facelift,” can reverse the signs of aging—sagging cheeks and loose neck skin. Don’t wait until the quality of your skin is too thin to consider facial plastic surgery—results are best achieved at the first signs of skin sagging.

Dr. Mark Owsley has more than two decades of experience in facial plastic surgery and is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Facial surgery performed by Dr. Owsley simply turns the clock back, while preserving who you are. There are no consultation fees for surgical facial procedures.

A neck and cheek lift is often referred to as a “facelift.” This procedure addresses the typical signs of aging that results in jowls at the jawline and loose sagging skin of the neck.

If you have become bothered by loose skin of the neck and jawline and feel that this procedure may be right for you, please call us for a consultation to discuss your options.

About the Procedure

During your consultation you will be able to discuss your facial concerns with Dr. Owsley in confidence. After he performs an assessment of your skin quality, skin laxity and volume loss, he will explain the three components of aging: the descent of tissue, the loss of tissue volume, and bone loss. He will continue with a detailed explanation of the procedure that is right for you, and answer any questions you may have.

After you conclude your consultation with the doctor, our Patient Care Coordinator will give you a quote for the procedure and review surgical date options. Your quote will include all hospital and anesthesia fees, your surgeon’s fees, and all your pre- and post-operative visits. When you schedule your surgery, a non-refundable deposit will be required to secure your surgery date. This deposit will be applied to the surgical cost.

After your surgical date is secured, we will schedule for a pre-op appointment two weeks prior to your surgery. Payment in full is due at the pre-op appointment. You will be given detailed instructions to prepare for surgery, and all pre- and post-op guidelines will be reviewed. Before you leave, we will ensure that all your questions are answered; however, we will provide you with a phone number to our registered nurse for any additional questions or concerns that may arise.

Recovery and Typical Results

We highly recommend you take it easy after your procedure—activity levels will be restricted for 4 to 6 weeks post-op (no heavy lifting or strenuous exercise). Walking around the house every two hours will keep your circulation moving during the recovery period.

You can expect swelling and bruising for the first few days that gradually lessen over the next several weeks. Your pain is controlled with medication that is often needed for the first 72 hours up to one week—depending on the procedure.

Eyelid (Blepharoplasty) Surgery

Eyelid surgery, also known as a Blepharoplasty, addresses excess skin of the eyelids and/or puffiness of the eyelids. This condition can become noticeable in people of all ages—many people ask if they are too young or too old for this procedure. These questions can be addressed at a consultation appointment.

About the Procedure

At your consultation appointment, Dr. Owsley will evaluate your eye area and review the procedure that is best for you. Photos will be taken and any questions about the procedure will be answered.

Many times blepharoplasty is combined with other facial surgeries, but when performed alone, the procedure can be done in the office under local anesthesia.

Once you decide that you’re ready to schedule surgery, you will be required to pay a deposit to secure your surgery date. This deposit is applied to your surgical costs.

Recovery and Typical Results

If the procedure is done in the office, an oral anti-anxiety medication will be prescribed to relax you during the surgery. The day of surgery you can plan to be at our office for a total of 2 hours. You will need someone to drive you home.

A post-op appointment will be scheduled for the removal of stitches one week after surgery. You can resume wearing makeup and contacts two weeks after the procedure.

Ear Pinning and Otoplasty
Ear pinning is one of the only cosmetic procedures frequently performed on younger patients. This procedure is used to improve the appearance of protruding or misshapen ears, so they are in better proportion to the facial contour. While the procedure is available for adults, it is most commonly performed on children between the ages of four to 14, after the ears have fully developed.

Disproportionate or protruding ears can make children the subject of much teasing. This can lead to low self-esteem that impacts a child’s view of himself and his overall quality of life. Ear pinning is a low-risk surgical procedure that corrects the size and shape of the ears, eliminating painful teasing and possible social issues that often follow.

Ear surgery, also known as otoplasty, can address the following concerns:

  • Ears that excessively protrude from the head
  • Oversized ears – a condition known as macrotia
  • Ears that are different sizes or shapes
  • Ears that fold over at the tip (lop ears)
  • Ears that have changed size or shape due to injury
  • It is performed on adults and children as young as 7.

About the Procedure

Otoplasty surgery is performed at the hospital, always under general anesthesia.

Ear pinning is typically performed on children under general anesthesia and adults under local. The procedure involves an incision across the back of the ear, which allows for the removal of excess cartilage. Cartilage that is left is reshaped and folded for a natural ear shape. The ear is then “pinned” to the head so that it heals in the proper position.

Recovery and Typical Results

Patients are allowed to return home the same day as the procedure. Bruising or swelling around the incision site subsides within a few days, however, results of ear pinning are evident right away. Incisions from the surgery are well hidden behind the ear so they will not be visible. The procedure is considered a permanent solution to overly large, protruding or misshapen ears.
