San Diego Facial Plastic Surgery
Facial aesthetic surgery is designed to erase the signs of age and environmental damage to your face, improving the shape, balance and youthful beauty. As one may expect, the surgical approaches can be as diverse as each of our individual faces, Dr. Vincent Marin will help guide you through the possibilities to help determine what specific surgical options are right for you.
Eyelid Lift Surgery
Dr. Vincent Marin can address aging or congenital changes to both the upper and lower eyelid areas. Blepharoplasty or an “eyelid lift” is designed to address excess skin as well as fatty tissue around the eyes with the goal of restoring a youthful, rejuvenated appearance.
Facelift surgery is designed to correct sagging skin in the cheeks, jowls as well as into the neck. There are a number of different approaches to facelift surgery that can be tailored to your particular needs. The goal of this surgery is to restore you to a more youthful appearance and effectively “turning back the clock” on the aging process.
A browlift is designed to lift and reshape brows that have descended and become “heavy” resulting in a chronically tired appearance. This occurs with age in some patients, and others are simply born with a lower brow position. There are several different approaches to this surgery, and each is based upon the type and amount of brow droop that you possess.
Rhinoplasty or nose reshaping surgery is one of the most delicate of all cosmetic surgeries. It is designed to not only correct external deformities of the nose, but also address breathing problems that you may have or that have resulted from trauma or other medical issues. Nasal surgery can improve an unwanted bump on the bridge, help to refine the tip or just make your nose fit the rest of your face.
As rhinoplasty is such a technically demanding surgery, there is a sub-specialty related to the correction of problems that may have resulted from previous nasal surgery. Patients can develop both external irregularities and breathing problems from a previous rhinoplasty. Secondary or revision rhinoplasty surgery is designed to help correct these problems often requiring the use of additional cartilage taken from the ear or the rib.
Dr. Marin has a unique background in that he trained with one of the world’s most notable revision rhinoplasty surgeons, Dr. Jack Gunter and has a tremendous amount of experience in this sub-specialty.
Chin Implant Surgery
Chin implant surgery or mentoplasty is a wonderful surgery designed to correct a weak or underdeveloped chin. A solid silicone implant is used to augment a chin that can be out of balance with the rest of a patient’s features. This is a surgery I see equally distributed between both men and women, and one with a very high satisfaction rate.
Otoplasty – Ear Reshaping Surgery
Otoplasty, commonly know as “ear pinning,” reshapes and repositions prominent ears closer to the head. The cartilage may need to be re-contoured, but the primary goal is to make the prominent ear blend in to the patients overall appearance making it no longer a feature that draws unnecessary attention.
