The facelift procedure is commonly utilized on patients over age 40 to refine overall appearance and create a youthful, rested, attractive look. Many patients at our convenient Chicago, Illinois location elect to undergo facelift surgery to reduce loose, sagging skin and tighten underlying facial muscles. Typically performed on an outpatient basis with local or general anesthesia, the facelift procedure may cause temporary side effects like dry or tight skin, bruising, swelling, discomfort, and numbness. Most patients are able to return to work and other light activities in one to two weeks.
At his Chicago practice, Dr. Horn can customize your facelift procedure to achieve an appearance that is noticeably toned and youthful. Because the facelift is tailored to your specific needs, it is possible to attain natural-looking results.
Excess hanging skin in the eye area and lower eyelid puffiness can cause some patients at our Chicago cosmetic surgery center to seek eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty. As early as 30, some patients may find that the skin surrounding the eye area shows the signs of aging more than other facial features. Eyelid surgery is an effective way to reduce the appearance of loose skin and create a more rested, youthful look. Performed as an outpatient procedure with local or general anesthesia, eyelid surgery may cause temporary side effects, including discomfort, tight skin, dry eyes, bruising, swelling, and sensitivity to light. Most patients are able to return to work and light activity in two weeks or less.
Because blepharoplasty can be completed through small incisions, most patients at our Chicago practice enjoy minimal scarring and the most natural-looking eyelid surgery results. Dr. Horn can customize your procedure to fit your specific needs, helping you achieve your personal appearance goals.
Some patients find that the natural aging process, sun exposure, genetics, or other factors can cause deep forehead furrows that create a tired or unhappy appearance. Typically performed on patients over the age of 40, the forehead lift procedure can produce a soft, smooth, rejuvenated look for our Chicago cosmetic surgery clients. The forehead lift is an outpatient surgery requiring local anesthetic with sedation or general anesthesia. Side effects are temporary and may include numbness, discomfort, bruising, swelling, and itching. Most patients are able to return to daily activities in one to two weeks.
During your consultation, Dr. Horn can discuss forehead lift options with you to ensure that the procedure is tailored to your goals. Often, scars from the forehead lift procedure can be discreetly hidden in the hairline, for youthful, rested, and natural-looking results.
As the central feature of the face, the nose plays a large role in overall appearance. Individuals who are concerned about the size or shape of their nose may be candidates for rhinoplasty, or nose reshaping. Dr. Horn can customize your procedure so that your nose better complements your other features. Based on your personal goals, rhinoplasty may entail the removal of a bump, reshaping of the tip or bridge, or reducing the overall size or width of the nose. Typically performed as an outpatient procedure using local anesthetic with sedation, rhinoplasty patients may experience temporary bruising around the eyes and nose, bleeding, swelling, and headaches. Most patients are able to return to work and nonstrenuous activities in one to two weeks.
In the skilled hands of Dr. Horn, rhinoplasty can provide beautiful, natural-looking results and a more balanced and attractive appearance.
Used to change the basic shape of the face and create a more proportioned look, facial implants can be placed along the jawline or used to enhance the cheekbones or chin. The implants come in a range of shapes and sizes and may be manufactured from a number of materials. Incisions for facial implants can usually be carefully hidden in facial contours, ensuring a natural result. Typically performed as an outpatient surgery with general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation, facial implants can be a highly effective option for many patients. Temporary side effects may include stiffness, numbness, and swelling, and most patients are able to return to light activities in one to two weeks.
For an improved facial contour, Dr. Horn may recommend facial implants to patients at his Chicago practice. An extremely effective facial plastic surgery option, the implants create a balanced and attractive look.
Otoplasty, or ear surgery, is used to reduce ear size or pin back prominent ears. Children between four and 14 years of age are the most common ear surgery patients, but adults who are self-conscious about their ears may also benefit from the procedure. Ear pinning can produce a more attractive and balanced overall appearance. Performed as an outpatient procedure, otoplasty requires general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. Throbbing, discomfort, swelling, redness, and other temporary side effects may occur. Most patients are able to return to normal activities in one week.
Ear pinning can help individuals enjoy renewed confidence and a more proportionate look. During your personal consultation with Dr. Horn, he can develop a treatment plan based on your specific goals and needs.
