Centrally located in Southampton and serving Philadelphia, Bucks, and Montgomery Counties, the Kole Plastic Surgery Center performs facial surgery procedures.
Your Face Is the Key to How Other People React to You
In social situations, your face is one of the first things people will notice about you. Since first impressions can be lasting, it is unfortunate that the face shows the signs of aging the earliest. Over the years, the facial skin becomes less elastic due to the effects of sun exposure, smoking, and the stresses of daily living.
At his Bucks County cosmetic surgery office, Dr. Edward Kole brings the benefits of both extensive plastic surgical training and years of experience in facelift surgery to patients in Pennsylvania and surrounding areas. Dr. Kole has completed training in plastic and reconstructive surgery and has acquired advanced techniques that he uses for every plastic surgical procedure that he performs.
A Sagging Face Makes You Look Older Than You Feel
Patients seeking a facelift often worry that their external facial appearance is older than how they feel inside. Many patients are also concerned that deep facial creases around the sides of the mouth and the jowl area can make them appear unhappy, mean, or tired—which is not the image they want to convey to the outside world.
Depending on your genetic factors, facial aging can begin in your early 30s. Typically, though, the first signs of an aging face will be noted when you are in your 40s or 50s. Due to the loss of collagen and elastic fibers, sun exposure, gravity, and everyday facial movements and expressions, the youthful, elastic properties of the skin begin to break down. The skin becomes loose and slack, causing the face to lose youthful form and definition. Deep creases appear between the nose and the mouth, jowls develop, and the vertical lines downward from the corners of the mouth start to appear. Fat deposits descend and the hollowness of the cheeks then becomes more noticeable.
Countering the Signs of an Aging Face
It’s not often recognized that your face—as well as the rest of your body—is constantly changing. As the decades pass, these small changes accumulate. The changes in your appearance can affect how people treat you and can alter how you feel about yourself.
Dr. Kole has a range of surgical and non-surgical techniques at his fingertips to erase the early signs of aging on your face. You can be restored to a younger image of yourself and watch how people react to your more youthful appearance.
A forehead or “brow lift” is a surgical procedure that restores a more youthful, refreshed look to the area of the forehead and the eyebrows. This procedure improves and minimizes the horizontal lines and furrows that can make a person appear sad, angry, or tired.
Implants can alter the contours of an aging face. They are often used in partnership with a facelift operation. Dr. Kole can use implants to restore symmetry to your face, giving a more youthful look to your features. Chin implants have become one of the fastest-growing trends in cosmetic surgery, especially for patients over age 40.
Ear surgery, or otoplasty, is most commonly performed on young children to improve the appearance of prominent ears. However, adults in good health can also benefit from surgery to reshape and reset the ear, even though adult cartilage is not as pliable as that of children.
Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, which is commonly performed at the same time as a forehead lift, restores a younger appearance by removing wrinkles, fat, and excess skin from the vicinity of the eye.
By performing a facelift or rhytidectomy, Dr. Kole is able to correct the age-related changes in your face and neck. Dr. Kole is familiar with all of the modern facial techniques and tailors your operation specifically to address the underlying causes of your facial aging and specific facial anatomy, as well as the changes and improvements you wish to obtain.
It’s not unusual for the first signs of a sagging neck to develop in your 40s. By the end of that decade, sagging skin and tissues may have swallowed your youthful jawline. A neck lift can remove the excess skin and fatty tissue deposits from under the chin and neck area. Dr. Kole can help restore the appearance of your chin and neck if you have jowls, a turkey wattle, or a double chin.
The nose is perhaps the most important feature contributing to facial balance and facial harmony. Surgery of the nose—rhinoplasty—is performed to alter the size of the nose or to change the shape of the tip, bridge, or nostril size. The goal will be to better balance the nose with the other facial features into a pleasing whole. Dr. Kole also undertakes revision rhinoplasty surgery for patients who are not pleased with the results of a prior nose surgery.
