Facial Plastic Surgery in Tampa, FL
A person’s face is their first impression to the world. The face is the focal point of communication and facial expressions convey to others much about how a person feels and even who they are. As a person ages, the face inevitably begins to show signs of sun exposure, the effects of gravity, and the stresses of daily life. Facial surgery encompasses a number of different techniques, procedures or surgeries performed by Dr. Brandon Mang to rejuvenate, restore and brighten almost any part of the face. Dr. Mang is a board-certified plastic surgeon who can help men and women of all cultures and ethnicities attain beautiful and natural results.
Nose Reshaping (Rhinoplasty)
Even the slightest update to your nose will make a noticeable difference since the nose is the most prominent feature on your face. Rhinoplasty is a popular surgery for either aesthetic reasons (for men and women who don’t like the look of their nose) or healthy reasons (for men and women who have trouble breathing due to a deviated septum).

Eyelid Lift (Blepharoplasty)
Surgery of the eyelids, also known as blepharoplasty, is frequently performed in conjunction with other facial procedures. As people age, muscles weaken, skin stretches and fat accumulates around the eyes creating a tired or stressed appearance. The ideal candidates for this procedure are 35 and older, but if a loss of elasticity in the eye area is a hereditary trait, you may decide to have eyelid surgery at a younger age. An eyelid lift can give you a younger, firmer eye area by removing excess skin, fat and muscle. It cannot, however, remove “crow’s feet,” eliminate dark circles, or lift sagging eyebrows.

Dr. Mang offers facelift surgery, also called a rhytidectomy, to rejuvenate the face and neck and slow the signs of aging. Dr. Mang’s facelift surgery targets the sagging skin on the face, as well as excess skin and fat of the neck with significant slimming, tightening, and smoothing results.

Facial Fat Transfer
One of the effects of aging is the decrease of fat and volume in a person’s face. Also referred to as micro-lipoinjection, a fat transfer procedure is a method of facial contouring that uses an injectable treatment to give the patient more volume in such areas as the lips and cheeks. It can correct hollowness around the eyes or even fill in deep wrinkles. This procedure transfers a patient’s own fat cells from other areas of the body.

A neck lift procedure, also called submentoplasty or platysmaplasty, aims to eliminate sagging neck skin and give patients a well-defined neckline. Neck lift surgery targets the excess skin and fat of the neck with significant slimming, tightening, and smoothing results. In some cases the neck lift is performed in tandem with a facelift but often this procedure is performed alone.

People often show the first signs of aging in the brow and forehead area. A brow lift can smooth out the wrinkles, and correct drooping brows and heavy lids to provide a refreshed, younger appearance. Improved modern surgical techniques can give patients beautiful natural-looking results that in turn delay the aging process. Brow lifts are often performed alone, however, some patients may desire to have the procedure done in tandem with other facial rejuvenation procedures, such as a facelift and blepharoplasty.

Ear reshaping, also known as otoplasty, is intended to place protruding ears in a more natural position. This surgery may be performed any time after the age of four or five. By that time, the ears have reached 85 percent of their adult size so there will be little, if any, subsequent change.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is created by drawing blood from a patient and then separating the red blood cells, the white blood cells and the platelets through a process called centrifugation. The blood is then reconfigured to add in a high density of plasma. Platelet-rich plasma contains proteins that support cell growth, aiding in healing, recovery time, and overall results.

Lip augmentation may be performed on most adult males and females to help create fuller lips. This procedure may also help reduce wrinkles around the mouth. There are two common methods: injections and implants. Injections can provide quick results with a limited recovery time, while implants will be more long-lasting.

Cheek And Chin Implant
High cheekbones and prominent chins have usually been considered a sign of strength. Some women, as well as men, wish to have a more angular and strong looking face. The best candidate for these procedures is an individual with a long narrow or round face and/or flat cheeks. In some cases, a cheek implant can postpone the need for a facelift for several years as well as restore some lip fullness.
