What Is a Facelift and How Can It Revitalize My Appearance?

A facelift or a rhytidectomy is a cosmetic procedure that reverses the changes brought upon your face through aging. As you get older, your skin loses its elasticity and becomes loose. Fat deposits become uneven, giving you a more gaunt, hollow look. A facelift addresses the following issues:

  • Sagging skin on your cheeks
  • Jowls
  • Folds near your mouth and nose

Surgery for a facelift involves the surgeon removing your excess facial skin. If needed, they will also tighten your underlying tissues and redistribute fat tissues evenly. Your skin is finally redraped over your face.

With the removal of excess skin and fat, your face starts looking younger, and your features become more defined. The surgery restores your contours, giving you an attractive and youthful look.

Brow Lifts Newport Beach

As one of the most expressive areas of the face, the eyebrows can be a prominent aspect of our appearance. For some of us, the signs of aging are most obvious around the eyebrows, as they may sag and droop in a way that leaves us looking tired. Fortunately, there are brow lifts, rejuvenating cosmetic procedures for the eyebrows.

Brow lifts, also referred to as forehead lifts, are cosmetic procedures that treat aging around the eyebrows. To deal with sagging or drooping of the eyebrows, the procedure aims to lift and tighten the skin of the forehead. This is performed with minimal incisions along the hairline, which allow the skin to be tightened. Excess skin may also be removed to create a smoother, raised appearance. Speak with Dr. Michael Sundine to learn more about brow lifts. Contact us at our office to schedule your consultation.

How Ducks’ Cam Fowler endured surgery to reconstruct his face

It was a play Cam Fowler has probably made thousands of times. He merely stuck his hockey stick into a shooting lane in an attempt to block an opposing player’s shot from the perimeter. Ideally, the shooter wouldn’t take the shot, but if he did the puck would be deflected out of harm’s way.

A routine play proved to be anything but ordinary on the night of Nov. 12.

This time, in the third period of the Ducks’ 2-1 shootout victory over the Nashville Predators at Honda Center, the puck deflected into a very dangerous zone. Craig Smith’s shot ricocheted off Fowler’s stick blade and struck the Ducks’ defenseman in the in the face, just below his protective visor.

The impact resulted in fractured orbital, cheek and jaw bones. When the swelling subsided days later, surgery was performed and several plates and screws were inserted into Fowler’s face to mend the damage. The doctors insisted he wait three weeks before resuming any physical activity.

“Obviously, post surgery, things were a little difficult there,” Fowler said Saturday in his first public comments since his injury. “I had to wait for the irritation and swelling and stuff to go down. The last two to three weeks, I’ve started to feel close to my normal self.”

Fowler skated Saturday with the Ducks for a second consecutive day, wearing a full visor to protect his face during their morning workout before they played host to the Arizona Coyotes. He also joined the Ducks for the first three drills of Friday’s practice before heading off the ice as planned.

He’s made rapid progress, but his return to the lineup remains uncertain. He sat out Saturday for the 21st game, and it could be several more before he rejoins his teammates and plays again. The Ducks’ original estimate called for an eight-week layoff.

The worst is over, as far as Fowler is concerned.

“I think the days leading up to surgery things started to set it, kind of what happened and the severity of what happened,” he said of the roughest days. “I had a lot of great people looking after me, the surgeon and Dr. Grant. Everyone made the whole process as easy as possible.”

Fowler referred to Dr. Michael Sundine, an Orange County-based plastic surgeon, and Dr. Bao-Thy Grant, the Ducks’ oral surgeon. Together they inserted “three or four plates and 10 screws,” during a complex three-hour procedure, according to Fowler.

“At the end of the day, things could have been worse,” Fowler added. “It could have affected my eye. It could have affected my vision long-term. In that way I feel very lucky. I’ll make a full recovery, but a lot of that is thanks to the people who took care of me.”

Consult Dr. Sundine if you have further questions about the V-Beam laser treatment.

Lip Augmentation – Newport Beach Facial Aesthetics

Lip AugmentationFull, plump lips are a classic hallmark of beauty. Fuller lips can do a lot to add to your natural beauty. Lip augmentation can add volume and dimension to lips that are thin or lack definition.

With an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Michael Sundine, lip augmentation can be performed quickly and conveniently, with the procedure taking as little as thirty minutes. The procedure involves the use of the SurgiSil Lip Implant, a permanent silicone implant that has been FDA approved. The implant is inserted through an incision made in an inconspicuous area to hide scarring. During lip augmentation, local anesthesia is used to reduce pain.

Abdominoplasty – Tummy Tuck – Newport Beach

AbdominoplastyHave you been aiming for a flatter, firmer and tighter stomach to show off for the summertime? Dieting and exercise are important parts of getting you the beach body of your dreams, but sometimes, despite dieting and exercise, you just haven’t reached your desired goals. Sagging skin and extra fat deposits that don’t respond to dieting can be sculpted away with an abdominoplasty.

The abdominoplasty, more likely known as the tummy tuck, is a surgical procedure that tightens the abdomen. Body size fluctuations due to weight loss and even pregnancy can leave excess skin on the stomach, which typically does not respond to additional dieting. Depending on how extensive the tummy tuck is, the procedure is sometimes combined with liposuction, leading to even better results.

Consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Michael Sundine to determine how an abdominoplasty can help you achieve the beach body of your dreams.

Dermal Fillers – Newport Beach Skin Rejuvenation

Dermal FillersThere is still time to get that boost of confidence in before summer rolls around. Dermal fillers are a quick and convenient “lunch time” procedure that can take years off of your appearance by reducing the appearance of aging. Fillers such as Juvederm, Radiesse, Perlane and Restylane are popular choices for giving you a quick boost of volume with invasive surgery.

Dermal fillers are often made of hyaluronic acid. Juvéderm and Radiesse, for example, are both composed of hyaluronic acid, which makes them particularly useful for adding volume to the face for softening wrinkles, lines or sunken areas. Treatments can take as little as 35 to 45 minutes and can remove crow’s feet and forehead lines and even add volume to the lips for up to a year.

Consult with Dr. Michael Sundine if you have more questions about how dermal fillers can help you look as young as you feel.

Rhinoplasty – Nasal Enhancement – Newport Beach

RhinoplastyThe nose plays a significant part in your face’s appearance. Its central and prominent location is an important factor for facial harmony and balance. So when the nose is slightly off-center or too large, bulbous or malformed, it can be a boon to the confidence. For those who are concerned about the appearance of their nose or would like to enhance their nose in a more ideal fashion, a rhinoplasty is a great solution.

A rhinoplasty is a highly versatile procedure that is tailored to meet the needs of each patient. The techniques will generally fall into one of two categories: open or closed. Open rhinoplasty is performed by making incisions along the columella, the narrow strip of tissue separating the nostrils, which gives the surgeon access to nasal structures. A closed procedure means incisions can be made inside the nose, which allows scars to be hidden.

The options available will depend on the type of nasal structure to be enhanced. Consult with an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Michael Sundine if you would like to know more about rhinoplasty.

Skin Care – Microdermabrasion – Beverly Hills

Skin CareAs the human body’s largest organ, the skin is a vital part of our overall health and beauty. Taking care of your skin can be the difference between looking years younger or years older. One of the classic skin care treatments that can leave you looking refreshed and rejuvenated is microdermabrasion. A gentler version of the older technique dermabrasion, microdermabrasion is an exfoliation treatment that removes dead skin.

Consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Michael Sundine if you have further questions about skin care.

Neck Lift – Facial Enhancement – Newport Beach

Neck LiftOne the earliest places on the face to show dramatic signs of aging is the neck. As time passes, the skin tends to naturally lose elasticity, which leads to sagging. Lines and wrinkles will develop, and skin can also droop under the chin and neck. The drooping skin is often called a “turkey gobbler,” which can make it appear as if you have a double chin, in spite of being in good health. A neck lift is an effective procedure for tightening the skin and reducing signs of aging.

Sometimes a neck lift is part of an overall face lift, or it may be performed on its own. Each procedure is customized to meet the needs of each patient, so it is important to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Michael Sundine. The neck lift typically involves removing excess skin but can also include liposuction to reduce excess fat from beneath the jaw. The procedure is performed while the patient is under general anesthesia.

Breast Augmentation – Incision Types – Newport Beach

Breast AugmentationOne of the most popular and well known types of plastic surgery is breast augmentation. There are many reasons that women choose the procedure, and each procedure is detailed to follow the needs and goals of the patient. The procedural technique involved with breast enhancement can vary in many ways, such as where the incisions will be made to insert implants.

Breast augmentation requires an incision if breast implants are involved. Saline implants typically require a smaller incision compared to silicone implants, because saline implants are inserted empty and filled afterward. The patient has the option of where the incisions are going to be made. Potential locations are underneath the breast, around the nipple, the armpit or down by the belly button.

Consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Michael Sundine to determine which options are right for you.

Contact us at our office in [fourthly_city] if you would like to know more about breast augmentation.

Arm Lift – Brachioplasty Procedure – Newport Beach

Arm LiftAs we age, our skin naturally loses elasticity, which contributes to the appearance of lines and wrinkles. When combined with drastic changes in body shape due to things like dramatic weight loss or pregnancy, our skin sometimes fails to adjust, which leads to sagging. Sagging can occur on all parts of the body, even the arms. If you are concerned about sagging skin on your arms, an arm lift is an ideal procedure for you.

Sometimes sagging excess skin is simply a result of your skin’s natural lack of elasticity or a consequence of age. Regardless of the reason, dangling skin can be a nuisance as well as an eyesore. An arm lift, also known as a brachioplasty, involves surgery to remove the excess skin and fat.

An incision is typically made along the backside of the arm to hide scarring — liposuction may also be used to reduce excess fat. Consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Michael Sundine to determine how an arm lift may benefit you.

Depending on what effects you want, the treatment can be tailored to best fulfill your aesthetic goals.

Cleft Lip – Newport Beach Congenital Deformities

Cleft LipCongenital deformities come in all shapes and sizes. One of the common types of deformity, occurring in about 1 in 700 children, is a cleft lip. The condition is characterized by a gap in the upper lip. A smaller version of the deformity is called a microform cleft, which is a smaller dent that curves up towards the nostril.

A cleft can cause problems with eating and speech, along with and psychosocial problems.

Otoplasty – Congenital Ear Deformities – Beverly Hills

OtoplastyOtoplasty, or ear surgery, is a surgical procedure that corrects all kinds of ear deformities.

The techniques involved in otoplasty are determined on a case-by-case basis with careful consideration of the patient’s condition.

This minimally invasive technique is typically available only for children as young as four, when preventative techniques are most effective. When it comes to conditions like constricted ears (a form of microtia) in children, splints and grafting of cartilage may be necessary.

Gynecomastia – Male Breast Reduction – Newport Beach

GynecomastiaGynecomastia is a condition where males experience abnormal growth of their chest tissue, which often results in overly large breasts. This condition is quite common and typically resolves within two years of its initial onset. However, if gynecomastia persists, the appearance of prominent breasts can be a source of embarrassment.

Mommy Makeover – Tummy Tucks, Breast Augmentation – Newport Beach

Mommy MakeoverThe experience of childbirth is different for every mother. Many mothers’ bodies undergo drastic changes that may be unwanted. More and more often, mothers are opting to undergo a mommy makeover, which is a combination of cosmetic procedures specifically for women who have experienced childbirth.

A mommy makeover often includes a tummy tuck and breast augmentation. Both procedures are sophisticated, detailed surgeries that involve a set of choices you will need to make. For example, a tummy tuck can be adjusted to involve a larger or smaller incision, but it depends on how much skin or fat you want to remove from the stomach area. Breast augmentation requires you to decide what type of implant you would like—silicone or saline.

Consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Michael Sundine in order to gain a sense of what kinds of procedures are right for you.

Contact us if you would like to consult with Dr. Sundine at our offices in [fourthly_city].

Arm Lift – Brachioplasty Terminology – Beverly Hills

Arm LiftDeciding to undergo an arm lift is an exciting process, and it helps to do everything you can to educate yourself about the procedure. An arm lift, technically known as a brachioplasty, is a sophisticated cosmetic surgery. Learning as much as you can about an arm lift will ensure that you make the best choices for your needs and will ease your mind of uncertainties.

The first major step to take is to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Michael Sundine. During your arm lift consultation, you may hear some unfamiliar vocabulary. Some of the basic words to know include the following:

  • Axilla: the area directly under the arm from the armpit to the elbow.
  • Skin laxity: the amount your skin may sag.
  • Intravenous sedation: one of your choices for a sedation method, where the sedatives are injected into your veins for comfort.
  • Local anesthesia: pain relievers that are injected directly into the area of operation for pain relief.

The more information you have, the stronger your decisions will be, and your expectations will be more realistic. All of these factors are key for a successful procedure.

If you would like to schedule a consultation and learn more about arm lifts, contact us at our office in [secondary_city].

Liposuction – Suction-Assisted Liposuction – OC

LiposuctionLiposuction is a cosmetic surgery that can remove stubborn excess fat in areas that dieting and exercise fail to address. Generally, fat is removed with a small hollow tube called a cannula. Depending on your goals and body type, your liposuction technique can be customized to suit your needs.

Consulting first with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Michael Sundine will help you clarify your exact goals and expectations. The doctor will also be able to examine your body type and make a recommendation for the right liposuction technique. The most common method is suction-assisted liposuction, or SAL. SAL involves moving the cannula carefully through the fat layers and suctioning them out.

If you would like to know more about the details of liposuction, please feel free to contact us at our offices in the OC.

Blepharoplasty – Upper Eyelid – Orange County

BlepharoplastyEyelid surgery can address a variety of issues for people who are bothered by the tired or aged look of their eyelids. Depending on your particular issues, there are a variety of options available for eyelid surgery, which is also known as blepharoplasty.

In the hands of an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Michael Sundine, blepharoplasty can address specific issues of the upper and lower eyelids. The upper eyelid can be of particular concern to older individuals, as excessive sagging can interfere with vision and impair your ability to drive or read. Fatty deposits in the upper eyelids may appear as puffiness. Eyelid surgery can surgically remove excess adipose tissue (fat) and enhance the eyelid for a younger, more alert look.

If you would like to know more about eyelid surgery, please contact one of our offices throughout Orange County.

Fractionated CO2 Laser Resurfacing

Do you have fine lines and wrinkles? Acne scars? Sun damaged skin with irregular pigmentation? Dr. Sundine is proud to offer Lasering USA’s MiXto Fractionated CO2 laser to his patients for treatment of these conditions. The MiXto laser has been named the best non-surgical facial rejuvenation device at The Aesthetic Show in Las Vegas for the third straight year. By using a patented scanning system the MiXto laser delivers a precise configuration of pulses which penetrate the dermis of the skin. The effect is to tighten the skin and stimulate the development of collagen to rejuvenate the skin. The laser also helps to remove superficial changes in the skin such as age spots and irregular pigmentation. Dr. Sundine has obtained excellent results using the laser for the treatment of acne scars as well.

In contrast to previous CO2 laser resurfacing procedures there is healthy skin surrounding each “dot” produced by the laser. This minimizes the time to heal from the laser treatment. This new technology allows us to treat areas that were not able to be treated using other laser technologies. We are now able to treat the neck, décolletage (upper chest), and even the hands!

The down time from this laser treatment averages about 7 days. When you have completely healed from the procedure you may apply some makeup that is safe after resurfacing. This is the best time of year to reverse the damage to your skin from last summer with time to recover before the holidays!

Breast Lift – Incision Types – Orange County

Breast Lift Breast lifts are a sophisticated cosmetic surgery that can address a variety of concerns about sagging breasts and misaligned areolae. Depending on your particular goals and your body type, breast lifts are offered in a variety of techniques.

After a thorough consultation and evaluation with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Michael Sundine, you will be walked through the details of the procedure and be asked a series of questions regarding your goals and expectations. Keeping these in mind, the doctor will offer his expertise and make recommendations. Examples of incision types the doctor will consider for your breast lift are anchor ring, anchor shank and anchor stock. The anchor ring is a circular incision around the nipple, the anchor shank is an incision along the lower edge of the nipple, whereas the anchor stock is a horizontal incision along the bottom of the breast where it meets the chest.

If you would like to discuss breast lifts in greater detail, please contact Dr. Sundine for a consultation at one of our offices across Orange County.

Scar Revision

With huge changes in the current healthcare environment, hospital emergency rooms and urgent care facilities are looking for ways to reduce the costs of providing care. It seems that lacerations are now more commonly repaired by physician’s assistants or other providers who have no surgical training. Unfortunately the quality of the repairs is frequently less than desirable. Dr. Sundine is frequently called upon for adult and pediatric scar revision procedures. In adults, the revisions can be frequently performed in our office. Please don’t hesitate to call our office for an evaluation by Dr. Sundine.

Patient Reviews & Testimonials

  • "Extremely Qualified"

    I was referred to Dr Sundine by the Pelican Hill Resort while I was a guest there and I suffered serious facial injuries from a mountain biking incident. Dr Sundine and his staff were concerned and caring and extremely qualified. the work performed by Dr Sundine on my face is simpl astounding. I was so impressed with the quality of care and results I received that I have had additional voluntary facila work performed by Dr Sundine.
