A variety of wrinkles form on our faces, from fine lines all the way to deep folds. These unpleasant signs of aging are common for most people. As you may already know, we lose skin elasticity and volume over time. Thankfully, Restylane is an injectable dermal filler that is effective in softening the appearance of lines.
The development of creases and lines is a natural aspect of the aging process. Wrinkles identified as the nasolabial folds and marionette lines can be the most notorious of the bunch.
Restylane, a hyaluronic acid, excels as a dermal injection in part due to its ability to hold volume over a long period of time. Once injected, the benefits can last up to a year. Adding volume to moderate and deep wrinkles minimizes their appearance.

By inserting breast implants behind the breasts, Drs. Lawrence Colen and Theodore Uroskie use their skill and expertise to increase a woman’s bustline while simultaneously improving the shape. If you’re considering breast implants, this blog post will give you a basic understanding of some procedure options.
Working through the incisions, our surgeons will gently lift the breast tissue along with the skin to create a pocket either directly behind the breast tissue or underneath the chest muscle (subpectoral insertion). A third option is a dual plane insertion, where the implant is placed half in front of the muscle and half behind it. The implants are then symmetrically aligned beneath the nipples.
It’s important to note that there are benefits and drawbacks to each surgical technique utilized for the implant placement. These decisions are discussed in great length during a one-on-one sit down with your surgeon.

It’s not uncommon for some to struggle with asymmetric nostrils. The issue can be the result of either a trauma or heredity. People concerned with asymmetry of the nose are encouraged to visit the skilled professionals at Norfolk Plastic Surgery to discuss the benefits of rhinoplasty.
Rhinoplasty, or nose surgery, is a popular and effective way to correct any number of aesthetic or functional issues affecting the nasal structure. When it comes to asymmetry, the dividing wall of the nose, also known as the caudal septum, is typically the cause. The correction for this would begin with repositioning or removing the deviated portion of cartilage in the caudal septum.
During this process, our surgeons can also correct any issues that may be present with the shape or size of the nose.

If you’re experiencing drooping eyelids due to excess skin and would like to do something about it, the trained professionals at Norfolk Plastic Surgery are uniquely qualified to offer up a surgical rejuvenation procedure known as a blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery.
Eyelid surgery is designed to reduce the excess skin and fat on the eyelids. In some cases, this extra skin can even interfere with a person’s vision. This outpatient procedure involves incisions along the crease of the eyelid. Typically, these incisions are barely visible and fade over time. Incisions can also be made inside the eyelid, which is more discrete. Eyelid surgery can be done on either the upper or lower eyelid.

Many people don’t realize that a facelift alone is generally designed to treat the mid-to-lower portion of the face. This leaves the area above the eyes relatively untouched. However, adding a brow lift to your facial surgery can generate a more dramatic improvement for your overall look.

Keep in mind that there are several types of brow lift procedures that can be performed, each with their own set of advantages. In order to map out the best course of action for your facial procedure, contact Norfolk Plastic Surgery to arrange a consultation with one of our highly trained and experienced surgeons.

If you are concerned about gynecomastia, now is the time to learn about the most effective solution to this problem, a treatment known as a male breast reduction.

If you’re thinking about having a facelift, it’s a good idea to familiarize yourself with some of the basics when it comes to the procedure itself. To start, a facelift is a cosmetic procedure designed typically for people in their 40s and 50s who are showing signs of sagging in the face and neck area. A well-executed facelift can set the clock back eight to ten years.
The facelift procedure offered by our experienced plastic surgeons begins by carefully placing incisions within the natural creases around the ears. Once the skin is lifted, the surgeon goes the extra step, tightening the underlying muscles to create a longer-lasting and more dramatic result.
Drs. Lawrence Colen and Theodore Uroskie, Jr., are experienced in modern techniques of facial surgery and will map out each procedure based on the individual goals and preferences of the patient.

Different facial regions can be injected with Radiesse in order to rejuvenate them, reducing folds and wrinkles along the mouth, chin, brow and nose. Among the minimally invasive procedures, Radiesse is widely considered the best option for erasing lines and folds and replacing lost structure with immediate volume.
Radiesse has unique microscopic spheres that support the skin for up to one year and beyond. During this time, the spheres slowly dissipate, but as they do, they continue to promote the growth of new collagen and elastin proteins for long-lasting benefits. Eventually, the water-based gel is completely and safely absorbed into the body’s system. Additional treatments can help to extend the duration of the effects.
For further details or to learn more about Radiesse, contact Norfolk Plastic Surgery to speak with our highly skilled plastic surgeons.
