Dr. Gary Motykie’s Facial Profile BalancingNovember 10, 2016
From an aesthetic perspective, the face is one of the more complex parts of the body that involves multiple features. Each feature should be in harmony with the other features in order to have a balanced facial profile. Several facial plastic surgery procedures can be employed to correct facial profile balance.
Dr. Gary Motykie MD is a board certified plastic surgeon providing facial profile balance procedures. Patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities have an opportunity to receive these procedures from Dr. Motykie.
Liposuction of the Face
Excess fat tissue deposits may occur in certain parts of the face, such as the chin, cheeks or neck, which can adversely affect the facial profile balance. Liposuction plastic surgery can be performed in a targeted manner to remove the precise volume of fat to create more uniform and balanced facial contours.
Other facial procedures may sometimes be performed in conjunction with facial liposuction to create more effective outcomes. Tumescent liposuction technique is usually employed to perform the procedure in a less invasive way using only local anesthesia.
Sunken or depleted look of the face in certain areas such as the cheeks may compromise the facial balance in some cases. An injectable facial fat transfer procedure can be performed to provide volume to the targeted areas and enhance the overall facial balance and symmetry.
Purified fat from the donor areas of the body is harvested for facial fat transfer. The harvested fat is then injected into the depleted areas of the face to build a rounder, more balanced face, while filling natural depressions.
The nose plays a defining role in determining facial profile balance because of its strategic central position in the face. A marginal change in the size or shape of the nose can have a magnified effect on the overall facial appearance. The cosmetic surgeon will improve the shape or size of the nose to make it more harmonious with other facial features.
Procedures involved in facial profile balancing with rhinoplasty may include widening or narrowing of the dorsum, reshaping upturned or flared nostrils, sharpening the nose tip, reducing a nasal bump, or straightening a crooked nose. Reduction or augmentation nose surgery may be performed to correct the facial balance as needed.
The facial profile will appear flat or narrow if the cheek structure is weak. Loss of volume in the cheek area can create a sunken look of the face. Cheek implant surgery is an effective way to improve these conditions. Volume and contour to the cheeks can be provided and cheekbone definition can be enhanced with implants.
Cheek augmentation procedure can build a well-balanced and fuller face. Some patients want to avoid cheek implant surgery, and seek non-surgical alternatives. The surgeon may recommend facial filler injections such as Juvederm Voluma, Radiesse or Sculptra to restore cheek volume in such cases.
Facial profile balancing may also involve nose implants and lip implants, in addition to chin implants. Dr. Gary Motykie MD receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for facial profile balancing.
