Whether you are seeking to erase increasingly visible wrinkles, or would like to improve the overall look of your face, the Facial Plastic surgeons at Profiles Beverly Hills offer a vast range of facial contouring procedures—from non-invasive treatments that can soften deep creases to minimally invasive and surgical procedures that can enhance the structural qualities of the face. Non-surgical rejuvenation techniques, such as Botox and temporary dermal fillers, can vastly improve the appearance of skin, delivering natural-looking results with little or no downtime. Facial implants can give the definition and strong lines needed to bring forward previously disproportionate features.
From the temporary to permanent sculpting procedures, Los Angeles Facial cosmetic surgeons Drs. Litner and Solieman will perform the right procedure for your individual face. Achieving subtle, yet dramatic results through facial contouring is as much an art as it is a science. If you are considering a treatment to refresh your look or reduce unsightly scarring, Drs. Litner and Solieman can help you sort through the latest trends, as well as the tried-and-true methods. With their years of expertise, they can work with you to formulate a facial contouring plan that will best fit your objectives.
If you have frown lines or crow’s feet, Botox™ is a temporary, non-surgical injectable treatment that can successfully minimize the appearance of unwanted creases. Once injected, Botox™ inhibits nerve impulses, thereby reducing the muscle movements that actually cause the lines to form. Although most commonly used to treat the forehead area and lines around the eyes, Botox™ can be successfully used on other areas of the face and neck. Because Botox™ is temporary, treatments typically need to be repeated every three to four months, although some patients have found that receiving injections every six months maintains their results.
Juvederm XC, a volumizing hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler can give aging skin an instant lift. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring substance that hydrates the skin and helps to preserve its structure. As we age, hyaluronic acid production slows, creating a gradual loss of volume, particularly noticeable in the cheek area. The result is downward slipping facial skin, which hollows out the midface region and leads to fold lines around the mouth, known asnasolabial folds. Juvederm XC temporary filler gives the skin a hyaluronic acid boost, restoring diminished structure and smoothing out folds and wrinkles. At Profiles Beverly Hills Drs. Litner and Solieman also use Juvederm XC to plump up the lips. Because the gel formula injects so smoothly, it can enhance the lips with natural-looking results.
From dermal fillers to advanced surgical techniques, the surgeons at Profiles Beverly Hills are committed to bringing both the latest as well as time tested cosmetic treatments to their practice. With today’s focus on non-surgical options, Drs. Litner and Solieman are consistently evaluating the newest minimally invasive treatments and procedures available to those seeking to improve skin texture, reduce wrinkles and rejuvenate the face. With all this knowledge and expertise, Drs. Litner and Solieman can confidently recommend the best plan to reach your unique aesthetic goals. To improve overall texture of the face, our surgeons may suggest a resurfacing procedure such as our 1540 Icon Laser resurfacing. To eradicate or reduce deep creases, such as frown lines, Drs. Litner and Solieman may recommend injectable therapies, which can effectively target specific areas of concern. To boost drooping skin, volumizing dermal filler treatments may be most appropriate. During a thorough consultation, Drs. Litner and Solieman will evaluate the condition of your unique skin and face to determine the specific optimal treatment suited to your needs.
Cheekbones provide the underlying architecture that supports our skin and facial tissue. Unfortunately, like the skin that covers them, cheekbones start to lose volume as we age. Cheek Implants can enhance the basic structure of the face, giving facial tissue and skin a lift. For the jawline, Jaw Implants can increase facial definition and strengthen features. Whether you are looking to combat the effects of aging, or make your face more angular, Cheek and Jaw Implants can potentially help you achieve the facial structure you want.
A Chin Implant, or Mentoplasty, can dramatically change the appearance of a receding or weak chin, bringing it into greater balance with the rest of your facial features. By increasing the projection and size of the chin, an implant can give needed structural definition to the lower face and jawline. Drs. Litner and Solieman often perform chin augmentation procedures in conjunction with other procedures such as rhinoplasty to ensure that the entire face is sculpted harmoniously.
Otoplasty, also known as ‘ear pinning,’ is a cosmetic surgical procedure that can address protruding, asymmetric or misshapen ears. During the procedure, Drs. Litner and Solieman will alter the size and position of the ear, sculpting the ear cartilage as needed to achieve a balanced effect. Depending on the particular case, Otoplasty may be done in combination with another cosmetic surgery, such as Rhinoplasty. Often performed on children, Otoplasty can produce impressive results in young patients, who may be particularly insecure about their large protruding ears. Drs. Litner and Solieman, experienced with working with patients of all ages, can determine whether Otoplasty is an appropriate method of treatment.
At Profiles Beverly Hills, Double Board Certified Facial Plastic surgeons Drs. Litner and Solieman have expertise in many delicate reconstructive surge including total nasal revision, scar revision and trauma, and reconstruction after Mohs surgery skin cancer removal. Reconstructive cases involve some form of damaged nose that has been deemed beyond repair, for example, a severe scar that has markedly distorted the face, or skin that has been devastated by cancer. You will find that Drs. Litner and Solieman are incredibly compassionate and sensitive to the emotional and physical needs of their patients. Their utmost goal is to help restore a patient’s appearance as much as possible and to alleviate the stress associated with disfigurement.
Most of us have suffered a blemish or breakout at some point in our lives. But for those who have experienced severe cases of acne, the residual scarring can be a permanent reminder of the unwelcome condition. When treating scars, Drs. Litner and Solieman assess the surface of the skin, noting the depressed and raised areas. This surface analysis allows them to address the problem from a contouring perspective. Their objective is to even out the skin so that areas of differentiated skin are not as noticeable. If scarring is more superficial and occurs in multiple areas, a series of laser resurfacing treatments can be highly effective. Temporary fillers can also be used to improve the skin’s texture. For very deep tissue scarring, Subcision Scar Revision, a procedure that utilizes dermal fillers, or Excisional Scar Revision, which involves lifting or removing the scarred skin can vastly improve the appearance of the skin.
