Facial Cosmetic Surgical Procedures

Dr. Bourget has extensive experience in Oral and Maxillo-Facial reconstructive surgery and face/neck cosmetic surgery. Offering services such as:

C02 & Erbium Laser Skin Resurfacing

The CO2 laser is the ultimate technology for aesthetic skin resurfacing. Laser technology is being utilized throughout the health care community. Dr. Bourget uses one of the newest lasers, the ultrapulse carbon dioxide laser, to treat superficial wrinkles around the eyes, lips, forehead and cheeks seen in aging skin. Facial scars and sun-damaged skin are also excellent candidates for this treatment.

Blepharoplasty (eyelid correction)

Blepharoplasty refers to eyelid surgery and is designed to remove the excess fat, along with skin and muscle, from the upper and lower eyelids. This procedure will not eradicate the wrinkles around the eyes (crows feet) nor will it elevate droopy eyebrows. There are other procedures designed for these purposes. Dark circles under the eyes may improve a bit if this is related to large bags, but most often the dark appearance of the lower eyelid skin remains.

Brow Lift

To see what a brow lift can do for your face, put your hands above your brows and outside the edges of your eyes and gently raise the skin upwards. Brow lifts are an option if you have a sagging brow or deep furrows between the eyes. Different methods are used for the brow lift procedures. Incisions will vary from one patient to another, and will depend on the amount of tissue and the wrinkling.

Fat Transfer

Fat transfer, also called autologous fat transplantation or micro-lipoinjection, plump up facial features with a patient’s own fat and is a popular alternative to other wrinkle treatments. Fat transfer to the face is a safe, natural, non-allergenic procedure designed to recontour your face and can provide definition to your cheeks and chin.

Facial Liposuction

Facial and neck liposuction is effective for removing localized fatty deposits in the face, the undersurface of the neck area and the lower neck region. It is also effective in the cheek region and in front of the ears, as this area is often times more plump than it should be. Often times, despite dieting and exercise, the face can appear more full than desired. Exercise and diet are generally recommended and can certainly improve the overall appearance. However, in many cases, no matter how much we diet or exercise, the prominence and roundness of our facial features persist. Facial liposuction is therefore, in these instances, required to satisfactorily reduce the deposition that is produced by time and by abnormal fatty deposition. Particular success is achieved for those patients who have recently lost weight, yet feel that their face appears more full and round.

Sub Nasal Lift

A subnasal lift can be performed to enhance a long upper lip with little dental show, it will help shape your lip, to show more of the red (in your lip).

Rhytidectomy (short scar, mid and full face lift)

Many factors cause the skin to wrinkle and sag; i.e., exposure to the sun, genetics as well as the natural aging process. Children and young adults have smooth, round faces due to fatty tissue that is evenly distributed throughout the contours of the face. As you age the skin sags and fits more loosely. These folds become prominent, especially around the chin, jaw line and along the neck. Dr. Bourget performs rhytidectomy, or facelifts, to enhance your appearance and correct these conditions. A facelift involves tightening of the facial and neck muscles as well as the removal of any excess skin. The procedure is often performed in conjunction with additional cosmetic surgeries such as blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), forehead lift, chin augmentation, liposuction. These procedures can be performed any time after signs of aging appear in order to attain a more youthful appearance.

7S Lift (mini scar facelift)

The endoscopic midface lift , or cheek lift, procedure can lift sagging cheeks, smooth out nasal furrows, and pull up the corners of your lips. It can be performed alone, in combination with an endoscopic brow lift, laser resurfacing, or as part of a full facelift.

Otoplasty (ear correction)

In cases of protruding or over-developed ears, the procedure of otoplasty may be an option. Otoplasty is commonly referred to as “pinning back” of the ears. It is available for children once their ears have stopped developing around the age of six. Over-developed ears can be the cause of psychological stress and trauma and should be treated at a young age before it becomes a serious issue. Dr. Bourget is trained in several surgical procedures that eliminate the majority of the problems related to protruding ears.

Rhinoplasty (nose job)

Dr. Bourget performs Rhinoplasty in order to reshape the nose. Appearance can be improved for those people who are dissatisfied with the shape and size of their nose. Nasal reconstruction was one of the first cosmetic procedures ever developed and is among those most frequently performed today. Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure in which deformities of the nose are corrected by removing, rearranging or reshaping bone or cartilage.

Facial Implants (chin, cheek, lip)

Facial implants are usually performed in conjunction with another surgery to help balance your features so that you feel better about the way you look. Many different types of implants exist, Dr. Bourget will discuss with you at the consultation the best type of implant to conform with your face.

IV Sedation

Our office offers our patients the option of Intravenous Sedation, also referred to as Intravenous Anesthesia, or “Twilight Sedation,” for their minor surgical procedures. . This is what sets our office apart from other practices; it is our niche, if you will. Click below to learn more about what to expect and how to prepare for IV Sedation for your procedure.
