Facial Plastic Surgery
Aging, sun damage, significant fluctuations in weight, as well as genetic factors may contribute to sagging of the facial tissues and a tired appearance. The way you look and feel affects your self-confidence and often determines how others perceive you. Dr. Joseph DiBello offers a full range of tried and true facial plastic surgery procedures designed to improve the appearance of facial features and reduce visible signs of aging, without looking unnatural — that’s The DiBello Difference. Today’s media often features “flash in the pan” procedures that offer short-term minimal results, often with significant potential adverse effects. Dr. DiBello offers the most up-to-date, safe and proven procedures. Aesthetic facial plastic surgery repositions skin and underlying tissues to counteract the effects of time and gravity for a firmer, fresher look. Whether it is droopy eyebrows or upper eyelids, fat pockets on the lower eyelids, cheek jowls, loss of the neck line, hollowness of the cheeks or an under-projecting chin, a consultation with Dr. DiBello will address your personal concerns and goals. Dr. DiBello’s extensive training and experience as a plastic surgeon, along with his personalized approach, will help you achieve a natural and refined appearance. A rejuvenated appearance has been shown to positively alter the way you look and feel about yourself. Dr. DiBello offers a wide variety of cosmetic facial plastic surgery options, including:
Facelift surgery is designed to create a more youthful, revitalized facial appearance by reducing or eliminating various signs of aging, such as wrinkles, fine lines, inelastic skin, and jowling. This procedure focuses on the middle third of the face, and is usually combined with a neck lift for the most natural-looking and comprehensive rejuvenation possible.
Common concerns such as vertical bands, loose skin, fat accumulation, and weakened muscles along the neck can typically be resolved with neck lift surgery. This procedure can also help refine the jawline and reduce the appearance of a “double chin.” Frequently combined with facelift surgery, a neck lift can provide a more youthful look with long-lasting results.
Medically referred to as blepharoplasty, an eyelid lift can help eliminate a tired or aged appearance by addressing concerns such as puffiness, bags under the eyes, and drooping eyelids. This procedure can be customized to treat the upper, lower, or both eyelids, depending on your unique needs.
Also known as a forehead lift, brow lift surgery can help smooth wrinkles and tighten loose skin in the upper third of the face. This procedure also lifts eyebrows to a more youthful position while reducing or eliminating other signs of aging. For an enhanced outcome, some patients choose to combine brow lift surgery with a facelift or eyelid lift.
Rhinoplasty can help create facial balance and harmony by addressing the size, shape, and contour of the nose. In addition to reshaping the nose, this delicate procedure can also be utilized to correct breathing issues. In the hands of a skilled and experienced surgeon like Dr. DiBello, rhinoplasty can yield beautiful results that blend naturally with your other features.
Children, adolescents, and adults with protruding ears can benefit from ear surgery (otoplasty), also sometimes called ear pinning. This unique procedure can also address other ear irregularities or injuries, including torn, stretched, or oversized earlobes.
Facial Implant Surgery
Facial implants can provide enhancement for individuals seeking to create a more defined jawline, chin, or cheeks. These implants are designed to refine and augment the underlying bone structure, ultimately creating proportionate, attractive facial features.
Facial Fat Transfer
Performed either on its own or as an adjunct to another facial rejuvenation procedure, facial fat transfer (also known as fat grafting) uses a patient’s own fat to restore volume to the face and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. As an added benefit, this procedure reduces fat in the selected donor area (any area of the body with unwanted, excess fat).
