Rhinoplasty or nose surgery is one of the most requested surgical procedures in teenagers. Reshaping the nose can give new confidence to patients by removing a hump, reducing the size of the tip and making the nose smaller and less noticeable. In many cases, not only are refinements made to the shape but also to its function. Both aspects can be addressed to give patients a natural, softer appearing nose that breathes and functions well.

Q. I’ve heard a lot about laser treatments to improve sun damaged skin. Are somelasers better than others?

A. There are many different types of laser treatments available to improve sun damaged skin. Non-ablative treatments such as Thermage and Fraxel have minimal downtime for patients but involve multiple treatment sessions. The results are not as consistent or effective as the ablative CO2 laser. Fractionated CO2 laser resurfacing, such as the Lumenis Ultrapulse Encore CO2 laser, is a one-time treatment that truly improves tightness of the skin, removes pre-cancers and brown spots, smoothes fine lines and makes the skin healthier overall. There is some downtime required, but the results are fantastic and last for years.

Q. What is my best option for improving the “turkey neck” and excess skin of the lower face?

A. This is one of the most common concerns I hear from my patients. Although lasers can tighten the skin and make it firmer, there is no way to sufficiently lift and remove excess skin without surgery. A neck-lift procedure, performed under a light general anesthesia, is a simple way to address this problem with only 7-10 days of healing time. The results are dramatic improvements of the neck and jawline with minimal hidden incisions. Choose a surgeon who performs these procedures often and has a good reputation in your community for natural results that last for years.
