Say Goodbye to Facial Imperfections in 2016
If the introduction of a New Year left you feeling less than charged, maybe a cosmetic treatment is the way to pull you out of your post-holiday funk. Dr. Madnani at Madnani Facial Plastics offers both surgical and non-surgical treatments to address a wide range of skin concerns. If you are unhappy with a visible mole, a scar that didn’t heal well or aging symptoms that are becoming more prominent, make 2016 the year you say goodbye to those facial imperfections once and for all.
In addition to the cosmetic concern of a visible mole, there are other reasons to consider removing it:
- Mole is becoming irritated because clothing rubs against it
- The mole looks like it could turn into skin cancer
- The mole has been identified as possible skin cancer
No matter what your reason for removing a mole, a plastic surgeon is your best choice for this procedure. This experienced professional will ensure your mole removal leaves as little scarring as possible, by choosing the technique that will work best for your specific lesion. Dr. Madnani offers a number of options in mole removal, including shaving or cutting the mole out of the skin. If the growth is particularly large, Dr. Madnani can also perform a skin graft in the area to improve the aesthetic result.
Mole removal is usually performed on an outpatient basis using local anesthetic and takes a relatively short amount of time to complete. Patients can return to regular activities immediately following the procedure, in most cases. Mole removal offers permanent results, whether performed for cosmetic or medical reasons.
Scar healing is a tricky process that doesn’t always go as planned for the patient. In some cases, poor scar healing leads to a significant cosmetic concern, particularly if the scar is on a visible area of the face or chest. Dr. Madnani offers options in scar revision to reduce the appearance of the scar and produce a more attractive result.
In many cases, scar revision can be effectively performed without surgery. Injectable fillers can be used to smooth away recessed scars, while skin rejuvenation treatments like chemical peels or laser resurfacing can reduce the visual impact of scarring. In some cases, surgical excision of the scar may be necessary and Dr. Madnani can perform that procedure for you on an outpatient basis using local anesthesia in most cases.
Signs of Aging
No matter how carefully we care for our skin, the effects of time and gravity will eventually take their toll. If you are seeing more facial creases and skin laxity when you look in the mirror, perhaps it is time to consider a cosmetic treatment to turn back the clock. Both surgical and non-surgical options are available to reverse signs of aging, giving you a more youthful appearance and greater self-confidence.
For earlier signs of aging, Dr. Madnani offers injectable treatments to smooth away fine lines and wrinkles. Laser resurfacing can also be effective for this purpose, giving skin a healthy glow by stimulating the body’s own collagen production. Significant signs of aging, including loose, sagging skin, may be better addressed using a surgical lift procedure that actually removes excess skin and creates a firmer facial profile.
