Fuller more youthful appearing lips are a goal of many patients. In the past we have achieved this by injecting “filler substances” such as collagen, fat or Restalyne into the lips to plump them up. While this generally works very well it is only a temporary solution, and requires a repeat procedure every six to eight months and may occasionally result in small lumps.
Over the past few years we have perfected a technique of enhancing lips with the latest soft implants. These are designed to allow your own tissue to grow into them so they become incorporated into your own body tissues, giving the most natural look and feel possible. What is more once the procedure is done it never has to be repeated as a permanent correction is achieved!
The procedure takes less than 30 minutes and is done with local anesthetic. There is some swelling for up to one week, but very little if any pain. Based on the results we have been able to consistently achieve we believe this is far and away the best method for lip enhancement for most patients.
Loose extra skin on the upper eyelids or bags and wrinkles of the lower lids can make you look tired and add years to your appearance. This can be corrected with a safe cosmetic surgery called blepharoplasty. This surgery can rejuvenate your eyes and take away that sleepy, tired look. Dr. Massey has perfected an “electrode blepharoplasty” that can be performed under the safety of local anesthesia, with practically no down time. The procedure take about 45 minutes and patients can usually be back to full activity after one week.Learn More
With time the effects of gravity can show themselves as loose extra skin on the cheeks and jowls. These can add years to your appearance. The old fashioned type of face-lift required general anesthetic, many weeks of down time and often left patients looking “unnatural” with their skin pulled much too tight. With the new “Lipo-Lift” Dr. Massey has integrated a new, less invasive face-lift procedure with the tissue contraction gained from micro-liposuction and the benefits of tumescent anesthesia, to produce amazing results. As soon as ten days later, patients don’t look like they have just had surgery, they just look better!Learn More
Until recently, procedures for body contouring through fat removal involved extensive operations. These resulted in large scars and significant safety risks. Several years ago, dermatologists developed tumescent liposuction. This allows fat removal through tiny incisions that do not leave significantly visible scars. A large volume of extremely dilute local anesthetic is infiltrated into the area to be treated. Then utilizing straw like, extremely thin metal tubes (cannulas) and a high-pressure suction system, the fat cells are extracted through tiny incisions.Learn More
A heavy, drooping forehead and eyebrows (rather than just eyelids) can give a sleepy, tired look. Many of these patients are mistakenly treated with a blepharoplasty alone, which takes extra skin from the upper eyelids, still leaving them with their flat, “heavy” eyebrows shadowing their eyes. If these patients are correctly diagnosed preoperatively, they can get a much better cosmetic result from a brow lift, either alone or in combination with blepharoplasty. This is the type of careful analysis and deeper knowledge that allows Dr Massey to guide patients towards the best procedure for them.Learn More
