Facial Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills
A well-contoured chin brings balance to the face by accentuating the cheekbones and creating a more symmetrical profile. During chin augmentation, Dr. Fleming fills out a recessed or underdeveloped chin by inserting a solid silicone-based implant over the patient’s jawbone. Dr. Fleming often carries out chin augmentation in conjunction with rhinoplasty or neck liposuction to give patients an overall refreshed appearance.
Cheek augmentation enhances the projection of sunken cheeks, which is inherited, or replaces lost volume secondary to normal aging. Dermal fillers, fat injections or implants can also be used. Dr. Fleming has had great success correcting insufficient skeletal contours and rejuvenating facial definition.
Having an overly prominent chin can distract from your other facial features, making you feel self-conscious. Some people also feel that having a strong chin makes them look masculine. When Dr. Fleming performs chin reduction surgery, he slims the jawline by removing fat, tightening muscle, or trimming down the underlying bone to present a more aesthetically pleasing profile.
Cheek lifts correct sagging cheeks, allowing patients to enjoy a more youthful look without undergoing facelift surgery. Patients often choose to combine cheek lifts with cheek augmentation for a completely rejuvenated look.
Ear Surgery (Otoplasty)
Otoplasty, or ear pinning, is a surgical procedure used to reduce the projection of the ears or correct congenital defects. Ear surgery sets the ears back and creates a more appealing contour. Unlike most aesthetic procedures, otoplasty can be performed during childhood (after age five) but many teens and young adults also seek the procedure, as do adults. Performing ear pinning early in life can help children avoid bullying.
Eyebrow and Forehead Lift
A sagging forehead creates a tired, aged appearance. Eyebrow and forehead lifts rejuvenate the upper face by taking out excess skin and manipulating the location and contour of the eyebrows.
Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)
Eyelid surgery, which removes excess fat and skin around the eyes, is an effective way to look years younger and take away under-eye puffiness. Dr. Fleming’s delicate approach to eyelid surgery ensures patients enjoy a rested, natural appearance after their procedure.
Dr. Fleming is well-known across the Beverly Hills area as an experienced facelift and neck lift surgeon. Both procedures encompass a wide variety of different treatment options that are designed to recreate firm, youthful face and neck contours. Dr. Fleming personalizes your face and neck lift to flatter your unique facial structure and achieve natural-looking results. Facelifts and necklifts are often performed with additional procedures such as forehead lifts, eyelid surgery, or fat augmentation.
Forehead Reduction/Hairline Lowering
Forehead reduction can bring balance to the face. Dr. Fleming uses the Irregular Trichophytic Hairline Incision he developed to bury follicles under the skin ensuring the incision is camouflaged. This technique ensures a natural looking hairline, allowing patients to style their hair freely.
Lip Augmentation and Hand Rejuvenation
Lip augmentations are a popular choice for patients who are interested in full, soft lips. Dr. Fleming uses injectable dermal fillers or fat augmentation to safely and effectively augment lip volume.
For hand rejuvenation, Dr. Fleming usually transfers fat from a “donor site” (like the belly or thighs) to fill in depressions and wrinkles on the hands. However, if you prefer injectable treatments, he can use dermal fillers in this area as well.
Through techniques like rhinoplasty, brow lifting, hairline lowering, chin reduction, eyelid surgery, and cheek and lip augmentation, patients can achieve a more feminine, oval-shaped face. Though facial feminization is often utilized by transgender patients, this treatment is appropriate for anyone interested in achieving more delicate facial contours.
The Fleming/Mayer Flap is a cutting edge surgical hair restoration method that creates immediate and natural-looking results. Patients who work with Dr. Fleming are able to experience the joys of full and natural hair for many years after this one-time procedure.
Micrografts & Minigrafts
Mini and micrograftng are safe, gentle hair transplant techniques that lead to natural and consistent hair growth. These procedures avoid the creation of “rows of corn” or “doll’s hair,” two unfavorable outcomes that were common with older forms of hair transplantation.
Dr. Fleming frequently performs scalp reduction when performing complete hair replacement on patients with substantial hair loss. Areas of bald or thinning hair are removed, then the scalp is stretched to manipulate the hairline and give the patient a fuller head of hair.
Tissue expansion reduces scalp tightness by stretching the skin to create additional scalp that can support healthy and natural-looking hair.
