Typically, incisions are made inconspicuous in the hairline and extend down around to the backside of the ear lobe. The subcutaneous layers of skin and muscles of the face and neck are tightened and any excess tissue is removed. Sutures are inserted to close up the incisions and dressings are applied. Dr. Glunk will discuss more details of your customized procedure during your consultation. This procedure is performed under local anesthesia with sedation or under general anesthesia. Post-surgery discomfort is controlled with oral medication.
The malar fat pad lift is a relatively new, advanced technique for revitalizing facial contours. It is perfect for middle-aged adults who show the initial signs of aging, but who desire a minimally invasive procedure that offers quick recuperation while providing long lasting results. It is especially effective for erasing age lines around the mouth and nose. The facial signs of age are largely due to gravity forcing the fat pads of the upper cheeks to gradually descend thus creating a hollow or tired look. The malar fat pad lift aims to reposition these fat pad anchors in their original location to lift the facial skin and muscles. The result is a perfectly natural rejuvenation of the entire countenance.

Blepharoplasty, or aesthetic eyelid surgery, is designed to enliven the eyes. Age has a habit of producing puffy skin that obstructs the eyes and causes you to look tired.

Blepharoplasty is used to target both upper and lower eyelids. Dr. Glunk will help you determine the best approach to create your desired new look. Precise incisions are made in the natural folds of skin around your eyes and may extend into laugh lines. Excess fatty tissue is removed through these incisions to smooth out the visage.

Forehead lift can solve a variety of concerns you may have about an aging face. Before Dr. Glunk begins any procedure he will direct you through a thorough consultation to determine exactly what areas you would like to see improved. Some people who feel they need an eyelid lift to brighten their countenance in fact would benefit more from a forehead lift. Dr. Glunk will help you develop a plan tailored to your needs for best results.
The procedure involves small incisions hidden in the hairline. Dr. Glunk then uses an endoscope to remove excess forehead skin and portions of muscles that cause wrinkles and frown lines. This smoothes out creases in the forehead and lifts the brow line to a more youthful position. There are other methods for forehead lift that Dr. Glunk will review with you depending on you particular needs.
