Popular Types of Sports Injury Cosmetic Surgery

Not every athlete plays the same game or suffers the same injury, at Michael J. Sundine Plastic Surgery, we offer plenty of facial surgical and cosmetic solutions to many sports-related injuries.

Rhinoplasty (Nose Surgery)

Balls flying, pucks soaring, sticks poking, arms wailing – a broken nose is easily one of the more frequent occurrences in the wide world of sports. Rhinoplasty helps many athletes fix a broken or crooked nose. Not only will it help fix your nose that maybe didn’t set quite right, but it can also help you breathe easier, and when you’re striving to win the big game, every breath is just as important as the next.

Blepharoplasty (Eye Surgery)

There’s a common phrase involved with most sports, and that is “Keep your eye on the ball”; this advice is much easier to follow when your eyes are fully working. If you have ever suffered from an eye-related injury, you may find that your eyelids are droopy due to the new position of your ocular or orbital bones. Blepharoplasty is a great surgery that focuses on contouring your eyelid to the new shape of your eyes. Incisions to remove excess skin and fat are done very carefully, making them essentially invisible after your healing process is complete.

Facial Fracture Repair

There are many bumps, bruises, and scars that athletes will use to tell their stories, but the one thing that no one wants is a broken face. When one gains an aggressive facial injury, one primary concern is whether or not the face will return to its original look. With a Facial Fracture Repair, inconspicuous incisions are utilized to ensure minimal visibility.

Otoplasty (Ear Surgery)

Cauliflower ear is an experience shared by wrestlers, bowers, hockey players, and rugby players alike. This condition is caused by blood clotting in the connective tissue of the ear, which causes permanent scar tissue that makes the ear look swollen and misshapen. During ear surgery, Dr. Sundine will carefully correct misshapen ears to create improved symmetry. If the ears are protruding, he will carefully pin them back so they’re closer to the head.

What I really like about Dr. Sundine is his vast experience and training. I also like the fact he did not try to sell me other procedures. He is also very down to earth and easy to talk to. I am very satisfied with the results and I highly recommend him.

After much research and multiple visits to other surgeons, I knew right away that Dr. Sundine was the perfect choice for me. I felt completely confident in his ability from the first visit to the last. I have been singing his praises to all of my friends and will recommend him to anyone searching for a plastic surgeon. Thanks, Dr. Sundine

Dr. Sundine is an excellent plastic surgeon! I have been using his services for almost 5 years. If you want to look years younger and fully refreshed I highly recommend that you use his services. Patients walk out looking naturally gorgeous, not overdone like some of the women in Orange County!

Dr. Sundine is the best plastic surgeon. Dr. Sundine’s excellent skills and knowledge has made my surgery turn out so well. But more importantly, it made me feel better about myself. Again, thank you Dr. Sundine for all you have done for me. You are the best surgeon!

I gave Dr. Sundine the highest possible review in each category because he truly deserved the highest reviews on every level. I am a very well recognized lawyer on the West Coast. My firm has spent millions of dollars on television advertising in which I appear. I could not afford to have a bad facelift or even for people to notice I had a facelift at all. I interviewed many physicians including some of the “celebrity” physicians. Ultimately, I chose Dr. Sundine.
