Your face is a very personal asset. It is probably your most recognizable feature, and what comes to mind when people think about you. When any type of injury, trauma, or damage occurs to the face, it can be very traumatizing and emotional. Most people assume that their only option for treatment for a facial laceration is to go immediately to the emergency room. They visit the ER and are treated by a doctor who sees the patient with an emergency and does his/her part to treat the situation. For the most part, emergency room doctors are not overly concerned with scaring. It is not that they wish for their patient to have a scar, but avoiding scaring is not their expertise. They simply see an emergency and treat it with the best medical services available to them. continue reading
Millions of men have turned to facial plastic surgery to enhance the appearance of their face. In the last decade alone, the percentage of male plastic surgery patients has grown dramatically. The cosmetic goals of most male patients fall under the following criteria: create a more “masculine” appearance, create balance between the nose and the face, balance the facial profile, and create a more rejuvenated appearance. Men often face the risk of greater complications due to facial hair, a thinning hair line, and thicker skin. Because of the necessity to fully understand the dynamics of the male face, it is vital that male patients seek out a trusted, highly certified, and experienced cosmetic surgeon.
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. continue reading
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.
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.
Dr. Mark Mitchell Jones leads Atlanta Plastic Surgery Specialists as a renown plastic surgeon. His credentials far surpass most surgeons, and have gained him the respect of doctors world-wide who look to Dr. Jones as a plastic surgeon with the skills, knowledge, and experience of a surgeon who others look to and hope to follow.
There are countless numbers of plastic surgery procedures done each year in the United States alone. Of these procedures, Rhinoplasty (referred colloquially as a Nose Job), is among the five most popular plastic surgery procedures performed. The nose is the central focus of the face. It sets the balance of your facial appearance, setting off all of your other features. continue reading
Perhaps no other time during the year do women feel more self-conscious about the size of their breasts than during the summer months. During the summer, clothes become smaller and reveal more skin and cleavage – leaving women who are small chested at a seemingly disadvantage. continue reading
When patients come in to Atlanta Plastic Surgery Specialists and they are interested in having any type of facial cosmetic procedure, one of the first questions that they will be asked is whether or not they smoke. Smoking causes early aging of the skin, as well as detracts from the appearance of your face. continue reading
It is unfortunate, but age is rarely good to any of us. Our bodies grow older with every passing day, and there are signs of the time passing on every part of our bodies. Perhaps for women, there is no more “tell-tale” sign of her age and what her body has been through than that of her abdomen. Women who have had the wonderful opportunity to carry a child, or multiple children, are left with visual reminders on their abdomens. continue reading
