Buccal Pad Removal
This procedure seeks to give the face a more angular and chiseled look by reducing the size of the buccal fat pad normally located in the cheeks. The buccal fat pad, not unlike the appendix or tonsils, has no useful function after infancy.This surgery is recommended primarily for patients with decidedly round, full cheeks and is commonly performed in combination with cheek enhancement.
Chin Cheek Augmentation Surgery
According to Dr. Fodor, a younger face is more triangular in shape with the chin representing the tip of the triangle. With aging, as the malar areas descend, jowling occurs and the facial shape becomes more rectangular. In individuals whose facial contours have changed as a result of advancing age, as well as in individuals who have congenitally flat cheeks areas, malar augmentation can offer significant enhancement of facial aesthetics. Though implants offer the advantage of a permanent structural change, injectables may be a good alternative when a lesser degree of augmentation is sufficient and permanency of the result is not mandatory. In the future, with ongoing evolution of soft tissue fillers, injectable treatments may become an even better option with long lasting results.
While some individuals are born with thinner lips, aging can also cause lips to become thinner and “prune lines” can form. This may make allure of a youthful smile can disappear. In the past, this was irreversible. Today, new procedures have been developed to remedy this situation. Dr. Fodor has been a member of a board of consultants tasked to design and give instructional courses for injectables to the face.
Otoplasty is a common procedure used to correct large, uneven and misshapen ears. We know that body image and concerns about one’s appearance are developed as early as 2-3 years of age. When children are perceived to have deformities of the ears, they are often subjected to naïve, but nevertheless, cruel teasing. As a result, children as young as 4-5 years of age are frequently very determined to undergo ear surgery and are typically very cooperative.
Like other cosmetic surgeries, nasal reshaping (rhinoplasty) is a combination of art and science. Because surgery is not an exact science, some of the factors involved in producing the final results are not within the control of the surgeon.
A neck lift can have a profound effect on appearance. Customizing the surgical approach for each individual is paramount in achieving the most aesthetic results in neck enhancement. Various choices are available, ranging from liposuction (lipoplasty) with or without chin augmentation to much more extensive operations such as a corset platysmaplasty and/or a full facelift. The length of recovery and the extent of scarring vary accordingly, and these are points that require thorough discussion between surgeon and patient during the consultation.How is a Neck Lift Performed
Endoscopic Forehead/Face Lift
Dr. Fodor pioneered this state-of-the art approach to facial rejuvenation in Aspen, Endoscopy. There is no visible scaring with an Endoscopic forehead lift or mid face as practiced by Dr. Fodor. The short incisions to introduce the Endoscopic instruments are placed behind the hairline and heal with scars that are difficult to detect, even by your hairdresser. Endoscopic procedures are less invasive than their traditional counterparts which allows a faster recovery with less postoperative swelling and bruising.
Sun exposure, weight fluctuation, and the natural aging process can make skin loosen and sag, resulting in wrinkles and jowls. The muscles on the neck can slacken, too, causing you to look years older than you are. Face lift is a surgical procedure designed to rejuvenate the face and neck, creating a more youthful appearance. Fresh, taut skin can make you look decades younger.
Short Scar Face Lift
A “Short Scar” face ls performed where the incision behind the ear is eliminated. In Dr. Fodor’s opinion, it works well for patients on whom the signs of aging have not significantly extended to the neck area.
Near Face Lift Procedure
Many of our patients request a full face lift, but based on patient evaluation, Dr. Fodor often recommends less invasive approaches, which still result in significant rejuvenation and an improved facial appearance. Dr. Fodor's initial evaluation and analysis of your face will help him determine whether you would benefit from what he calls a "Near Face Lift" surgical concept Dr. Fodor developed.
The aesthetics of the eyes, other than color, are determined entirely by the bony and soft tissue architecture surrounding them. Variations in the bony skeleton, such as underdeveloped cheek bones, when not recognized in advance of blepharoplasty, can negatively impact the final aesthetic result.
