Facial Rejuvenation Torrance
Dr. Khattab has helped both men and women achieve the look they feel better reflects the person they are inside. After all, that’s what it’s all about: making a more youthful you. What could be more beautiful than that? After Dr. Khattab’s patients have had a cosmetic enhancement and see the exceptional results, many of them wonder why they waited so long!
Cosmetic plastic surgery of the face can “turn back time” by reducing the appearance of wrinkles and lines, sun damage and sagging skin that can make you look angry, sad or tired. Listed below are some of the procedures Dr. Khattab offers to help you look as young and energetic as you feel.
In time, gravity, sun exposure, and the stresses of daily life take their toll on our faces: deep creases appear beside the mouth, the jaw line slackens, and folds and fat deposits appear on the neck.
Facelifts turn back the clock by removing fat and tightening skin and muscles, giving your face a fresher, youthful look. Facelifts under Dr. Khattab’s expert hands can restore youth and soften wrinkles without looking too tight or unnatural.
In a full or complete facelift, Dr. Khattab lifts the skin of the cheek and neck, removes any fat deposits under the chin, and tightens the jowls, all with the goal of achieving the patient’s personal goals. A complete facelift improves sagging and wrinkling of the neck, jowls, cheeks and temples.
In a partial facelift, only certain areas may be treated: for example, the neck only, or just the cheeks. After surgery, patients enjoy a naturally younger and “rested” look, not a “windswept” or “pulled-tight” appearance that makes it obvious they have had surgery. Dr. Khattab’s results really are more than skin-deep. It’s a more natural and youthful look.
A neck lift is performed to tighten loose skin in the neck and remove deposits of excess fat beneath the chin to achieve a more youthful and rested look without a “pulled” appearance. A less invasive alternative to a facelift, neck lifts can produce dramatic results in the patient whose neck has sagged with age or after weight loss.
Let Dr. Khattab help turn back the hands of time. Enjoy a more contoured appearance to the neck as well as some improvement of lines between the nose and corners of the mouth.
Chin and cheek augmentation accent the facial profile and neckline and give more angularity to the face. Chin implants reshape the chin to help provide a harmonious balance to the facial features. Cheek implants of varying sizes and shapes help patients whose cheeks have thinned or sunken due to age or illness.
Browlifts, or forehead lifts, can revitalize drooping or lined foreheads, helping you to look less angry, sad or tired. Using either traditional or minimally invasive (endoscopic) methods, this single procedure achieves several improvements: it lifts the eyebrows and upper eyelids, and also corrects deep forehead wrinkles and horizontal and vertical lines.
A further advantage to a browlift is that most patients do not need eyelid surgery later in life because the skin on the upper eyelids is lifted. The incision is hidden in the hairline. The result is a long-lasting rejuvenated appearance.
Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery or eyelid lift) can rejuvenate puffy, sagging or tired-looking eyes by removing excess fat, skin and muscle from the upper and lower eyelids. It may be performed for cosmetic reasons or to improve sight by lifting droopy eyelids out of the patient’s field of vision.
Depending on your wishes, Dr. Khattab can perform blepharoplasty on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or all four eyelids. He trims excess upper eyelid skin and removes “bags” (small pouches of fat) above or beneath the eyes. Scars are hidden in the natural crease of the upper eyelid and just below the eyelash line for the lower eyelid.
In short, eyelid surgery restores a youthful gaze by correcting loose skin, pouching and sagging around the eyes. You’ll wonder why you waited so long to undergo eyelid surgery with Dr. Khattab!
Blepharoplasty can be combined with a facelift or BOTOX® treatments to raise the eyebrows or reduce the appearance of wrinkles, crow’s feet or dark circles under the eyes.
One of the most common plastic surgery procedures, rhinoplasty is performed to reshape, reduce or augment a person’s nose, remove a hump, narrow nostril width, change the angle between the nose and the mouth, or to correct injury, birth defects, or other problems that affect breathing. Nose reshaping can redesign your nose and correct breathing difficulties, making it both a cosmetic and a functional procedure.
Dr. Khattab performs rhinoplasty with incisions that are hidden inside the nostrils, so patients do not have visible scars after surgery. The result is a nose that is in harmony with the face and with itself. The real benefit is what it can do for your self confidence!
Ear surgery for children or adults can set prominent ears back closer to the head and reduce the size of large ears. Surgery may also be helpful for “lop ear,” “cupped ear” and “shell ear,” large or stretched earlobes, and lobes with creases and wrinkles.
The visible signs of facial aging occur over time as a result of sun exposure, type of skin, lifestyle and other factors. One of the earliest signs of aging is a loss of facial fullness and the development of expression lines and wrinkles due to the repeated movement of facial muscles. The following injectable materials can soften these lines and restore fullness to the face.
BOTOX® Cosmetic Treatments – BOTOX® treatments relax muscles to soften dynamic lines such as crow’s feet (laugh lines), frown lines and forehead lines. It’s completely safe and virtually painless.
Radiesse™ dermal filler instantly corrects facial wrinkles to give you a younger look. It uses advanced, calcium-based microsphere technology to deliver soft, natural-looking results you can see immediately. It also stimulates your body to produce new collagen, so you’ll continue to look more youthful and attractive over time. For many patients, the benefits of treatment with Radiesse dermal filler may last up a year or more. Radiesse® dermal filler may be used in an array of treatments ideal for correcting the signs of aging or adding natural contours to the face.
Juvéderm™ – Juvéderm gently smoothes wrinkles and folds around the mouth and nose and restores a youthful volume to the face. It is especially effective on smile lines and “parentheses” (nasolabial folds) that run from the bottom of the nose to the sides of the mouth.
Sculptra® – Sculptra® is a long lasting, clinically-proven treatment than can smooth deep lines and wrinkles and restore facial volume lost to the body’s natural ageing process. The improvement is gradual, long-lasting and gives you a natural-looking fuller face. Clinical studies have shown that the results last for two years after the final treatment has been completed. Sculptra® is an injectable volumising treatment that stimulates the build up of the body’s own collagen to smooth out lines and wrinkles and restore lost facial volume to give you a fuller, younger-looking face.
Fat Injections – Fat transfer is a minor procedure where the body’s own fat is used as soft-tissue filler and taken from one area and injected into another to contour the face, plump up areas that have lost volume, diminish wrinkles and fill in skin creases and depressed areas.
Non-invasive Accent radiofrequency (RF) therapy is a new, FDA approved treatment for loose, sagging skin on the face and neck. Accent provides excellent facial tightening and wrinkle reduction, offering targeted dermal heating to stimulate collagen production and smooth wrinkles without pain or downtime. We believe Accent is one of the best technologies available for improving the contours of the face.
Accent treatments apply deep dermal heating to the bundles of threads between skin and fat to bring about new collagen bands formation and skin remodeling and rejuvenation. The procedure also helps enhance blood circulation and drain trapped fatty deposits and toxins.
Unlike previous radio-frequency devices which made patients very uncomfortable and hot, Accent radiofrequency precisely heats the skin’s inner layer while its outer layer is continually cooled. This provides additional patient comfort and epidermal protection.
While just one or two treatments can produce results, we recommend a minimum of four treatments. A course of six treatments is recommended to best maintain the appearance. With proper care, the results from Accent can be expected to last several years.
Skin resurfacing treatments softens and minimize wrinkles, lines, acne blemishes, age spots and sun-damaged skin. Dr. Khattab offers various techniques ranging from chemical peels to microdermabrasion, whichever is most effective for your skin type.
