Face

Facial plastic surgery can reduce the visible signs of aging or improve proportion by reshaping and refining the facial structures. Our team of plastic surgeons is able to provide several rewarding facial procedures for men and women in the Kansas City area. We also perform reconstructive facial surgeries to repair birth defects, injuries and age-related conditions. View the links below for more information on these services.

Brow lift

A forehead lift or brow lift is a procedure that restores a more youthful, refreshed look to the area above the eyes. The procedure corrects drooping brows and improves the horizontal lines and furrows that can make a person appear angry, sad or tired.

Chin surgery

Chin surgery, also known as mentoplasty, is a surgical procedure to reshape the chin either by enhancement with an implant or reduction surgery on the bone.

Cleft and craniofacial

The Cleft and Craniofacial Clinic offers comprehensive care for a full range of craniofacial anomalies. This includes procedures to repair conditions, such as cleft lip and palate and craniosynostosis, as well as for injuries or scarring caused by burns, disease or accident.

Ear reconstruction

The complete reconstruction of the ear using rib grafts is the most complicated surgical procedure for the ear. Though there are a number of other reconstruction techniques available, including implants, soft tissue and prosthetics, the most common technique uses rib cartilage to shape the ear.

Ear surgery

Ear surgery, or otoplasty, is usually done to set prominent ears back closer to the head or to reduce the size of large ears. The operation is usually done on children between the ages of four and 14.

Eyelid surgery

Eyelid surgery (technically called blepharoplasty) is a procedure to remove fat — usually along with excess skin and muscle from the upper and lower eyelids. Eyelid surgery can correct drooping upper lids and puffy bags below your eyes — features that make you look older and more tired than you feel, and may even interfere with your vision.

Facelift

A facelift (technically known as rhytidectomy) is designed to reduce or improve signs of aging in the lower and middle areas of the face.  This is achieved by removing excess facial fat, tightening underlying muscles, and redraping the skin of your face and neck.

Facial implants

Facial implants are used to improve and enhance facial contours. Frequently, these implants will help provide a more harmonious balance to your face and features so that you feel better about the way you look.

Facial fat grafting

Fat-grafting is also known as autologous fat transplantation or micro-lipoinjection. During facial fat grafting, fat cells are extracted from your abdomen, thighs, buttocks or elsewhere and reinjected beneath the facial skin. Fat can fill in sunken cheeks or lines between the nose and mouth, correct skin depressions, minimize forehead wrinkles or enhance the lips.

Facial nerve surgery

The most effective way to return motor function to the face is the microsurgical repair of the facial nerve, also known as the seventh cranial nerve.

Jaw surgery

Corrective jaw surgery may be performed to address a wide range of skeletal issues, which may be congenital or the result of a trauma or disease.

Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty, or surgery to reshape the nose, is one of the most common of all plastic surgery procedures. Rhinoplasty can reduce or increase the size of your nose, change the shape of the tip or the bridge, narrow the span of the nostrils, or change the angle between your nose and your upper lip.
