Your face is the first thing a person sees and is what they remember most about you. When there are abnormalities or intense signs of aging that make you self-conscious, plastic surgery can help reshape the structures of your head and neck that you may not currently be satisfied with. The goal is to improve a person’s appearance and boost self-esteem, and it is crucial to make an informed decision as you consider elective procedures to address your cosmetic concerns. We intend to provide you with the best service possible.

Performed with the utmost care and precision, cosmetic facial procedures in West Orange help shape, soften, or remove unwanted features. Dr. Sanjay Lalla’s cosmetic face procedures yield natural-looking results with minimal recovery times. Browse our offerings below to learn more about which cosmetic procedure can help you achieve a more vibrant appearance.

Choosing a Facial Plastic Surgery Procedure

There are several different options that patients from West Orange consider when choosing facial plastic surgery. In certain situations, more than one procedure could be done on the same day – Dr. Lalla can offer further insight during your consultation.

Also known as Mentoplasty, chin surgery reshapes the chin through enhancement implants (chin augmentation) and re-contouring the bone (chin reduction).

Ear surgery (Otoplasty) can correct ears that are oversized or protrude too far from the head. A limited ear surgery procedure may also surgically correct elongated earlobes or fix partially torn earlobes.

The loss of skin elasticity that comes with aging causes unwanted sagging, wrinkling, or obscurement of vision from a bulging upper eye. Also called Blepharoplasty, an eyelid lift can restore a more youthful appearance, smoothing away the unwanted signs of aging.

Over time, collagen production slows, causing fine lines and wrinkles to develop around the mouth. Facelift surgery, also known as Rhytidectomy, addresses signs of aging in the middle and lower regions of the face. This includes the cheeks, jowls, and everything in between.

Fat injections, also known as fat grafting or fat transfer, can lessen wrinkles, fine lines, and other common signs of aging around the temples and the eyes. With facial fat injections performed by Dr. Lalla, patients can enjoy refined facial contours with beautiful, natural-looking results.

A forehead lift corrects the sagging or low position of the eyebrows, softens horizontal creases across the forehead, and erases the worried or angry expression resulting from frown lines. The outcome is a more relaxed and refreshed appearance.

Rhinoplasty seeks to address imperfections in the nasal tip, bridge, and nostrils. In addition to improving the nose’s shape, size, and projection, a Rhinoplasty can repair structural damage that causes poor breathing.

Depending on each patient’s unique case, a neck lift may include surgical excision of sagging skin, liposuction, or skin resurfacing to address pigmentation issues.

How Does Facial Aging Affect Plastic Surgery?

After facial plastic surgery, a person in West Orange will continue to age naturally. The changes related to aging depend on a person’s exposure to smoking, sun, certain levels of stress, genetics, weight fluctuations, and general health.

Facial plastic surgery can help turn back the clock so a person appears several years younger than their biological age. Dr. Lalla addresses signs of aging by correcting fat displacement, excess or sagging skin, small fatty deposits along the jawline, and deep creases in the mid-face.

Typically, a younger person experiences longer results than an older person. However, older patients do benefit from more pronounced results. Age can also determine if your body is ready for one of these procedures. For example, completed bone growth is necessary before a rhinoplasty can correct nose shape or size, which is why we may not take a patient until they are at least in their late teens.

What to Expect During Recovery

The time a person requires for full recovery depends on the type of surgery performed. Following a rhinoplasty, the swelling and bruising often disappear within two weeks. However, it is crucial to protect the nose from trauma for several weeks afterward to ensure the bone heals well.

It takes far longer to recover from a facelift than a forehead lift or fat injection. It is crucial that a person carefully follow the post-operative instructions we provide to ensure the best outcome from the surgery and reduce the risk of infection. The immediate instructions will include information on how to care for the incision, as well as activity levels, sleeping positions, sun exposure, and diet.
