Skin Fillers

Restylane/Perlane

Restylane is a gel that is injected into the skin in order to add volume to lips and lift up wrinkles and folds. Restylane consists of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance already present in your body. Once in the skin, Restylane works by creating volume. Some dermal fillers are derived from animal substances. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane is non-animal. During treatment, the crystal-clear Restylane gel is injected into the skin in tiny amounts with a very fine needle. It can be used for smoothing out folds and wrinkles, lip enhancements and shaping facial contours. The most common areas are the glabellar lines (between the eyebrows), the nasolabial folds (from the root of the nose to the angle of the mouth) and the lips, although other sites can also be treated.

Perlane differs from Restylane only in its gel particle size. Perlane gel particles are larger. They are designed for deeper injection than with Restylane.

Lipid Cell Transfer

Fat cells can be harvested from areas of the body and injected in wrinkles around the lips or face as well as other areas. This procedure can be done under local or sedation anesthesia. The results are longer lasting than collagen.

Radiesse

Sculptra Aesthetic

Age doesn't have to look the way it used to. It's more subtle. More gradual.

Shouldn't your anti-age be just as subtle?

Sculptra Aesthetic. Not an overnight miracle. Long lasting. Not a quick-fix. The first facial injectable that gives you subtle results over time. Replacing lost collagen. Giving you a more natural-looking appearance, without giving you away. A full treatment of Sculptra Aesthetic, an average of three injection sessions over a few months, can last up to two years. So you have more time to see how sensational subtle can be. Discover anti-age for the modern age.

Sculptra Aesthetic is a new type of facial injectable made from poly-L-lactic acid, which helps to replace lost collagen. It helps correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles, and folds, that appear with aging byreplacing lost collagen. The main ingredient is a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material that has been used by physicians for decades.

Laser Resurfacing

In laser resurfacing, a beam of laser energy is used to vaporize the upper layers of damaged skin with accurate precision. As new cells form during the healing process, a smoother, tighter, younger-looking skin surface appears. You may be a good candidate for laser resurfacing if you have any of the following conditions: fine lines, especially around the eyes; vertical lines around the mouth; facial scars caused by injury or accident; scars caused by acne; areas of uneven pigmentation, such as “age spots”; lines on the cheeks caused by sun damage.

Chemical Peel

Chemical peel or chemosurgery, is a non-invasive technique for restoring wrinkled, blemished, unevenly pigmented, or sun-damaged facial skin, using a chemical solution to peel away the skin’s top layers. The new cells that form during the healing process produce a smoother, tighter, younger-looking skin surface. Chemical peel can be used on the full face or on specific regions, such as the forehead or the area around the mouth. Chemical peel is not a substitute for a facelift – which helps with sagging or excess skin – but many people can benefit from both procedures.

Face/Neck Lift
Rhytidectomy

Facelift and necklift surgery will turn back the clock and remove those visible signs of aging. Sagging skin will be lifted and underlying muscles tightened to give you a fresh, more youthful appearance. The degree of facelift will be decided by you and Dr. Bishop upon consultation. A standard facelift, “S” shape facelift, similar to the “Lifestyle lift”, or a mini facelift, sometimes referred to as the weekend lift are all offered here by Dr. Bishop and his highly experienced team. A facelift can be done alone or in conjunction with other procedures such as a forehead lift, eyelid surgery, laser resurfacing, fillers and Botox

Endoscopic Forehead
(Brow Lift)

Endoscopy is a surgical technique that involves the use of an endoscope, a special viewing instrument that allows a surgeon to see images of the body’s internal structures through very small incisions. In a forehead lift, the muscles and skin are removed or altered to smooth the forehead, raise the upper eyelids and minimize frown lines. The result can be a more alert, more animated, more youthful appearance. Instead of the usual ear-to ear incision, three or more "puncture-type" incisions are made just at the hairline. The endoscope helps guide the surgeon, who removes the muscles that produce frown lines, and repositions the eyebrows at a higher level. Often, patients don’t realize how much their sagging forehead contributed to the signs of aging until they see how much younger and more rested they appear after the lift.

Eyelid Surgery
Blepharoplasty

A blepharoplasty is done to remove the excess fat and drooping skin of the upper eyelids and minimize bags under the eyes and tighten the lower eyelid skin. This procedure is primarily done to improve appearance. However, upper eyelid surgery can be done to improve visual field. The result is a more alert and rested appearance. This is an outpatient surgical procedure.

Chin & Cheek Implant
Facial Implants

Your face is a composite of structural elements – chin, cheeks, brow, jaw seen in the context of your whole face. It is the relationship between these structural elements that creates the look that is uniquely yours. When one of these elements is too big, too small, too prominent, it tends to throw the face out of balance. Facial contouring, a form of plastic surgery that changes the basic structure of your face, may use carefully styled implants to create a more attractive, harmonious balance among your facial features. With facial implants, your surgeon can help you achieve, for example, a wide and stronger jawline, higher cheekbones or a fuller face, or added length and projection to a small chin.

Otoplasty
(Protruding Ears)

Ear surgery, otoplasty, is done to set prominent ears back closer to the head or to reduce the size of large ears. Ears are almost fully grown by age 4, and the earlier the surgery, the less teasing and ridicule a child will have to endure. Ear surgery on adults is also available with minimal down time.

Rhinoplasty
(surgery of the nose)

Rhinoplasty 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. It may also correct a birth defect or injury, or help relieve some breathing problems.
