Types of Face and Neck Plastic Surgery
Face and neck plastic surgery consists of a multitude of procedures that vary from cheek augmentations, facelifts, fat transfers to the face, and other combined procedures that help provide a more youthful appearance.
A facelift restores a more pleasing contour to your face and neck. A facelift can be done alone, or in conjunction with other face and neck procedures such as a forehead lift, eyelid surgery, or nose reshaping. Ask Dr. Hardaway and the cosmetic specialists at Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and Laser Center about the facelift procedure that is right for you.
Liposuction of the chin, also known as submental liposuction, neck liposuction, or lipectomy, removes fatty deposits from areas around the chin and neck. Liposuction of the chin can improve the contour of the chin and jawline, get rid of a double chin or unwanted fullness underneath the chin, and make the face appear thinner overall.
Chin liposuction is often combined with other procedures such as a neck lift or facelift, to remove lose skin and contour all areas of the face. Typically, those who are in their twenties through early fifties have better skin elasticity, which is necessary for the skin to contract smoothly after liposuction, and are good candidates for the procedure. Dr. Hardaway performs all of these services at her AAAASF certified surgical suite.

Full lips with an accentuated border have often been associated with beauty and youth. Lip augmentation enhances the contour and fullness of lips for a younger, healthier appearance. Unfortunately, our lips are subject to sagging as we age. The colored portion of the lips thins out and the arch of the upper arch (cupid’s bow) flattens. This problem is especially noticeable in women with naturally thin lips.
Fat grafting is available as a surgical alternative. Other surgical options include Gore-Tex implants or the use of Alloderm to provide greater definition and a well-defined border.
Lip augmentation is appropriate for patients who wish to enhance the lips they were born with and for patients who wish to restore their lips that the aging process has taken away.
When consulting Dr. Hardaway for lip augmentation she will discuss both non-surgical and surgical options that are available in her facility. Dr. Hardaway performs filler injections such as Juvederm® and Restylane® for patients who prefer non-surgical treatments for lip augmentation.

We have all heard the saying “The eyes are the windows to your soul”. The signs of premature aging, such as dark circles, sagging upper and lower eyelids, fine lines and wrinkles, can make you look tired and older. Eyelid lift (or blepharoplasty) is the recommended and most often preferred treatment for removing bags under the eyes or drooping eyelids. These aging eye conditions can add years to your appearance and even impair your vision.

A brow lift is a procedure that lifts and tightens the forehead skin specifically. A brow lift does not treat the eyelids especially. If a surgery targeting the eyelids is preferred, eyelid surgery, also known as a blepharoplasty, or an eye lift, is a surgery that can improve the appearance of the eyelids. This procedure can get rid of droopy eyelids and sagging skin around the eyes, and removes excess fat around the eyes, making the eyes look youthful and more open.

A neck lift, also known as a lower rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure used to tighten loose skin around the lower jaw and neck. A facelift, also known as a rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that tightens the skin on the entire face below the forehead, including the jowls. The pricing for a face or neck lift procedure varies from patient to patient. These procedures can be combined, or performed separately, or combined with other procedures. To perform a neck lift, incisions are made under the chin or behind the ears to access the neck muscles. The skin and muscles are tightened, then secured. Full recovery from a neck lift procedure can take about six to eight weeks, though normal work and activities can be resumed when cleared by the doctor. A neck lift is often combined with a facelift or brow lift. During your consultation, Dr. Hardaway will help find the procedure or combination of procedures and plan that is right for you.

Fat Transfer To Face
What is fat transfer to the face? With normal aging, there is fat loss in the face. This can be replaced with one’s own fat or fillers such as hyaluronic acids or similar products. Fat is often used when replacement is needed in multiple areas of the face. The volume replacement helps give a more youthful appearance. Fat transfer to the face is often used in conjunction with a face lift or by itself. As with fat transfer in other areas of the body, it is important to follow post-operative instructions for optimal fat survival.
