Some scars are often seen as battle wounds with a good story behind it, while others are painful reminders of an accident or incident that left behind too obvious outcomes. Often, the most unwanted or painful scars are found on the face. People often categorize facial scars as deformities, which cause them to feel embarrassed or self-conscious about their appearance. Dr. Mark Mitchell Jones of Atlanta Plastic Surgery Specialists offers exceptional facial scar revision using skin grafts or flaps of skin from other parts of the body and Z-plasty.
The nose is the most prominent feature of the face, making it also one of the features that many people are most unhappy with. Rhinoplasty surgery (otherwise known as a “nose job”) is one of the most sought after cosmetic procedures throughout the United States. People see a nose job as a quick fix that will have a tremendous impact on their appearance. While this can be the case, nose jobs are one of the most frequently botched plastic surgery procedures performed. The greatest cause of patients being dissatisfied is that they did not do their research on the surgeon before trusting him or her with their face.
Many people are under the assumption that plastic surgery is only beneficial for women. While it is true that women made up the greatest percentage of cosmetic surgery patients, the percentage of male patients has been on the rise in the last decade. Men care about their appearance, and they often feel just as self-conscious as women do about growing older. One of the most popular cosmetic surgeries for men is neck lift surgery. This surgical procedure can be done as a singular procedure, or it can be combined with a face lift for more dramatic results. Many men are surprised to learn of their options regarding cosmetic surgery, yet they are available and highly effective for creating the desired improvements of their appearance.
When it comes to the appearance of the face, balance is one of the most general terms that is used to describe an attractive appearance. The lips play a huge role in the facial appearance. Not only do the lips provide a natural pleasantry, but they also have specific and significant roles that they must perform throughout any given day. The lips are essential for expressing emotions, and they are also necessary for proper chewing, eating, and speaking. Those with abnormalities, deficiencies, or who have experienced trauma to the lips often seek lip reconstruction for both aesthetic and functional reasons.
Lip reconstruction is a highly complex surgical procedure that deals with a complex series of muscles that control the movement and functions of the lips. Dr. Mark Mitchell Jones leads Atlanta Plastic Surgery Specialists with the experience and reputation of a world-renown plastic surgeon that has successfully treated patients with deformities, injuries, and complications left behind from other surgical procedures (e.g. cancer removal).
Scars on the skin are a natural reaction when trauma or injury has occurred to the body. Falling down and scraping the knees or elbows, surgical procedures, and puncture wounds are common. Many people proudly boast about how certain scars were obtained as though they are “battle wounds” with a good story. However, some scars are more emotionally difficult to deal with, especially if they are visible or disfiguring on or near the face. Facial scars are often difficult to conceal, and they can cause those affected to feel embarrassed or self-conscious about their appearance. Many people suffer from scars on the face as a result of severe acne in their younger years; however, other facial scarring occurs as a result of an accident, tragedy, or deformity. Dr. Mark Mitchell Jones of Atlanta Plastic Surgery Specialists is an expert in facial scar revision as a customized approach for treating those with unwanted or disfiguring scarring on the face.
The entire face consists of more than just your eyes, nose, and mouth. Your facial features include your hair line, cheek bones, chin, jaw line, and neck. The aging process affects all areas of the body, including all of your facial areas. It is not uncommon for different areas of the face to age differently on individual persons, but all areas will eventually be affected. Neck lift surgery is a common procedure in which the lower portion of the face is tightened and smoothed. This procedure is commonly paired with a face lift surgery in order to achieve the most dramatic results of the entire face.
The skin takes a brutal undertaking each day as the largest organ of the human body. As it is fully exposed to the sun, wind, all atmosphere, and other chemicals from lotions and clothing, the skin will show signs of reaction. Skin cells are created to replace themselves, yet when they linger on the skin’s surface they can build up and cause the skin to look dull and aged. Microdermabrasion is a process that helps to remove the dead, outer layer of skin and to stimulate the rejuvenation of younger looking skin.
Whether you associate your ears with your facial appearance or not, the ears play a vital role in the symmetry and overall appearance of the face. The earlobes are prone to easily tearing and stretching because they do not have cartilage to help them keep their shape. At Atlanta Plastic Surgery Specialists, Dr. Mark Mitchell Jones offers excellence in earlobe repair through cosmetic surgery. Dr. Jones is renowned for his skill and artistry in repairing ear lobes that are torn, stretched, or drooping. Dr. Jones uses his specialties in cosmetic surgery to create natural looking and long lasting results.
A broken nose is the most common facial fracture, and a very large majority of people in the United States alone have suffered from this injury. Yet, as many people who have been affected by a nasal fracture, over half of them choose not to have any type of repair done. The reasons behind this choice include: thinking that the injury was not that bad, thinking that the injury will simply heal on its own, and simply having an aversion to the doctor. Getting struck on the nose, whether by a propelling object, another person, a door, or in an accident, is not pleasant. It is important to have your nose looked at by a respected doctor soon after the incident to decide if the injury resulted in any significant damage to your nose. For those who have waited – and waited – there is still an opportunity to correct damage. Dr. Mark Mitchell Jones of Atlanta Plastic Surgery Specialists can help those who are unhappy with the appearance of their nose or the frustrations that they have over how it functions.

Fall is the perfect season to fall in love with your face because you have the opportunity to improve your facial appearance before the holiday season hits.
