Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery



Facial expressions are a way to interact with others. How we look has an impact on how others perceive us, so most of us are concerned about our face's appearance. Some would like to change certain things about their face. Others are born with facial abnormalities such as a cleft lip, a birthmark, or other birth defects. Many of us notice the effects of aging, sun damage, or previous facial trauma. Fortunately, many of these conditions can be corrected through surgical procedures performed by a surgeon.

The range of conditions that otolaryngologists diagnose and treat are widely varied and can involve the whole face, nose, lips, ears, and neck. Facial plastic surgery treats a specific component of these conditions and can be divided into two types-reconstructive and cosmetic. Reconstructive plastic surgery is performed for patients with conditions that may be present from birth, such as birthmarks on the face, cleft lip and palate, protruding ears, and a crooked smile. Other conditions that are the result of accidents, trauma, burns, or previous surgery are also corrected with this type of surgery. In addition, some reconstructive procedures are required to treat existing diseases like skin cancer. Cosmetic facial plastic surgery is surgery performed to enhance visual appearance of the facial structures. Typical procedures include face lifts, eye lifts, rhinoplasty, and liposuction. An otolaryngologist surgeon is well trained to address all of these problems.

Dr. Mark Rubinstein and Dr. Deborah Doyle developed the Facial Plastic Surgery Center to specifically address the cosmetic and reconstructive facial plastic surgery needs of our patients. Together with two licensed master estheticians, they offer a variety of options from skin rejuvenation treatments and medical skin care products to laser hair reduction. Our facial contouring includes both surgical and non-surgical procedures. Surgical options include endoscopic brow lift/forehead surgery, face lift, liposuction, chin augmentation, eyelid surgery, ear surgery, scar revision and nasal plastic surgery. For those interested in achieving a more youthful look without the inconvenience of surgery, we offer several options of skin fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm, Perlane, Radiesse and Prevelle Silk which soften lines and contours for a more youthful appearance. We also offer Botox and Dysport injections to treat heavy frown lines and "crows' feet" to create a more relaxed look.
