Expert Facial Surgery Near You in Miami, FL
Aventure Plastic Surgery has been the to-go plastic surgery center in Miami, FL for over 30 years. Plastic surgeon Richard Galitz, MD, FACS is a double board-certified plastic surgeon, who began his private practice in Aventura, Florida in 1986. Offering professional cosmetic surgery and non-surgical services to people throughout southern Florida, including expert botox and filler in Miami.
Dr. Galitz routinely performs and is masterfully adept at numerous facial surgeries including:
Blepharoplasty, also known as upper eyelid surgery or eyelid lift surgery, is a plastic surgery procedure that involves the removal of excess skin and/or fat from the upper and/or lower eyelids. This quick and simple eyelid surgery can provide a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance to the eye area by improving drooping or sagging of the upper eyelids and puffiness and bags beneath the lower eyelids. Eyelid lift surgery is a good procedure for anyone who has an excess of skin and/or fat pads of either the upper or lower eyelids.
Rhinoplasty, also known as a “nose job,” is a plastic surgery procedure designed to reshape the nose to enhance its appearance or function. This is often used to make the nose better fit the face, such as increasing or decreasing the overall size, removing a hump, reshaping the bridge, altering the size of the nostrils, raising or reshaping the tip of the nose, or a myriad of other changes. It can also be used to improve the function of the nose, often helping to treat snoring or other impediments to breathing. Often, the nose can be both aesthetically and functionally enhanced at the same time.
A facelift is a plastic surgery procedure designed to elevate, mobilize and reposition sagging and aging skin and muscles of the face and neck. This is an excellent procedure for people dealing with face sagging after weight loss and is best performed under local anesthesia at younger ages. Today, the longest lasting and most natural results are achieved by working on the deepest layer of facial tissue and muscle, known as the SMAS or Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System.
The browlift, also known as a forehead lift, is a plastic surgery procedure that rejuvenates the brow and forehead area by minimizing forehead creases and furrows, frown lines, drooping eyebrows and hooding above the eyes. This is an excellent procedure for anyone with sagging or drooping eyebrows and/or excessive forehead wrinkling. The surgery can be performed with a direct or tricophytic approach via scalp incision or with the endoscopic approach with minimal scar. For most patients today, the endoscopic approach is best.
Cheek augmentation is an excellent plastic surgery procedure able to add definition to the cheek area and improve the facial contours. Miami cheek implants are soft silicone implants that come in a variety of shapes and are placed over the malar bone through a small incision made under the upper lip. This is a great procedure for anyone with poor cheek projection or weak malar prominence.
Chin augmentation is a plastic surgery procedure performed by Dr. Richard Galitz in which a chin implant is placed in the front of the chin to make the chin more prominent. The surgery can build up a receding chin and improve overall facial harmony. This is a safe, easy procedure that is ideal for anyone with a weak-looking chin seeking better definition. It is often paired with rhinoplasty for those with a weak chin who are also looking to draw less attention to the nose.
For the past 25 years, Miami plastic surgeon, Dr. Galitz has used laser resurfacing to treat a variety of skin challenges, ultimately freshening and beautifying the skin. As technology has progressed, it has become more and more difficult for patients at large to understand their use and to select which laser may be best for their individual needs. Dr. Richard Galitz offers the full array of laser resurfacing and treatment options. What follows are summaries of each laser so you may better understand in what ways you may benefit from laser skin resurfacing.
Lip augmentation is a procedure that can add fullness to the lips for a plumper, more sensual appearance. While there are a variety of techniques that can be used, including injectable fillers and implants, Dr. Galitz has invented an excellent procedure that uses a dermal fat graft made of the patient’s own tissue to provide permanent and natural lip fullness.
The neck lift is a plastic surgery procedure designed to elevate the tissues of the face and neck in order to recapture a youthful appearance. This is an excellent procedure that can dramatically improve the jowls and neck while being performed under local anesthesia in an hour or less. A ‘turkey waddle’, jowls, fleshiness, and banding in the neck can all be improved. Good candidates include healthy individuals with sagging and excess jowl and neck tissue which often results from age or weight loss.
Otoplasty, also known as ear surgery, is a plastic surgery procedure designed to reshape large or prominent ears. Candidates include healthy individuals who are looking to improve an ear shape abnormality. The surgery is often performed on children as young as four years of age in order to spare future teasing which may occur due to large or misshaped ears. While this is an excellent procedure, it does take an experienced and skilled surgeon to achieve the best possible results.
Mohs surgery Florida is a specialized procedure in which defects from the removal of skin cancers by a MOHS excision are reconstructed. A MOHS excision is a type of skin cancer treatment whereby minute layers of cancerous skin tissue are removed layer by layer until all involved tissue is removed. This allows as much surrounding healthy tissue as possible to be preserved.
