The face is susceptible to the natural aging process as well as the toll of years of sun, wind, and environmental exposure. Wrinkles, fine lines, and brown spots, all signs of skin damage, make us appear older than we actually are. We provide a range of plastic surgery procedures that effectively turn back the hands of time, giving you a natural, more youthful and vibrant appearance.
Our skilled and experienced facial plastic surgeons can help you attain your aesthetic goals. We offer minimally invasive office procedures that smooth and tighten the skin. For patients that desire more dramatic results, we perform state-of-the-art surgical rejuvenation and recontouring procedures. All of these techniques are designed to produce beautiful results that don’t give away the fact that you’ve had plastic surgery.
Please contact our practice to schedule a consultation for facial plastic surgery.
Face Lift and Neck Lift
A face lift can significantly restore a youthful, more refreshed appearance to the face and neck with results that endure for years. While the neck lift is typically performed as a component of the face lift, some patients may be candidates for an isolated neck procedure to reduce signs of aging and excess fat under the chin.
A midface lift from our doctors in the Kansas City area targets the cheek and nasolabial fold region giving the patient a refreshed and more youthful appearance.
Brow (Forehead) Lift
A brow lift, or forehead lift, can smooth out lines and creases in the forehead and reduces the appearance of furrows and wrinkles around the upper eyelids. This procedure is typically performed with minimal incisions hidden in the hairline to give you a more relaxed and youthful upper face. A variation of this procedure is often requested by men and can be performed even with a receding hairline.
Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)
Signs of facial aging are first expressed around the eyes. These changes produce a fatigued appearance that may be perceived by others as exhaustion. Many of our patients report a sense of increased workplace competiveness after eyelid rejuvenation. Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, addresses contour irregularities caused by poor skin texture, excess skin, and changing in eyelid fatty tissue. Our facial plastic surgeons can take years off your appearance with this popular cosmetic procedure.
Rhinoplasty can improve your appearance by balancing the nasal shape and proportion with other facial features. This procedure can also address breathing problems. Drs. J. David Kriet and Clint D. Humphrey also specialize in performing complicated revision rhinoplasty on patients that have had surgery elsewhere.
Ear Pinning (Otoplasty)
Otoplasty surgery reduces the prominence of the ears. This surgery is most frequently performed in children starting around age four or five before they become the subject of cruel teasing and bullying. While this surgery is most commonly performed in young children, we have many patients who seek otoplasty as adolescents and adults. As physicians, we enjoy witnessing the improved self-esteem in all age groups.
Chin Implants (Mentoplasty)
While mentoplasty is sometimes performed as an isolated procedure, it is more frequently combined with rhinoplasty or face lift surgery. Chin augmentation improves facial harmony by addressing a weak chin and reducing the apparent size of the nose after rhinoplasty. It also enhances jawline definition and minimizes jowling when performed with a face lift.
Fat grafting is a popular method of facial rejuvenation and volume correction. Using fat harvested from another area of your body, our facial plastic surgeons can target areas of areas of volume loss and atrophy including the cheeks and nasolabial folds. Hollowing under the eyes is also frequently addressed.
