Turn back the hands of time with an age-defying facelift.

A facelift from Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Associates can reverse these negative effects and make you feel young again.

Dr. Lazarus stays up to date on the latest techniques and employs them for every facelift surgery.

Facelift and necklift surgery, also called rhytidectomy, can correct deep facial creases, slack jaw lines, folds, and fat deposits on or around the face and neck. By removing excess fat, tightening facial muscles, and redraping the skin, a facelift literally turns back the effects of time. Facelift surgery is often performed with other procedures, such as eyelid surgery, a browlift, or rhinoplasty, for optimal results.

The majority of patients who visit us for a facelift in Knoxville, Tennessee, are between the ages of 40 and 60. Facelift patients include both men and women who desire a younger appearance, but whose skin has retained a fair amount of elasticity.

Eyelid Surgery – Blepharoplasty

If you suffer from drooping upper eyelids or puffy bags below your eyes, you may wish to consider eyelid surgery. Knoxville, Tennessee plastic surgeon, Dr. Stephen Lazarus, has been performing eyelid surgery for patients throughout Tennessee since 1983. With precise techniques and surgical expertise, Dr. Lazarus can remove the excess skin and fat from your upper and/or lower eyelids that cause you to look older and more tired than you feel.

Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is often performed in conjunction with other plastic surgery techniques, such as a facelift or browlift, but is a very effective procedure when performed alone. Most of the patients who visit us for eyelid surgery at our Knoxville practice are 35 or older. However, we often treat younger patients who experience baggy eyelids from heredity.

Dr. Lazarus places great importance on the initial consultation to discuss your goals and expectations with eyelid surgery. He will then create a detailed treatment plan to best meet your plastic surgery needs.

Eyelid surgery is performed in our AAAASF-accredited office-based plastic surgery practice, where a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA) and other ACLS (Advanced Cardiac Life Support) certified staff will attend to your needs. The duration of eyelid surgery varies among individuals, but generally lasts from one to three hours. The incisions necessary for eyelid surgery are made along the natural creases of the eyelid to prevent noticeable scarring.

Dr. Lazarus’ skill and precision are applied to every eyelid surgery at our Knoxville practice. If you are interested in eyelid surgery, or any other facial plastic surgery procedure, contact Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Associates to schedule a consultation with Dr. Stephen Lazarus.

Browlift – Forehead Lift

A browlift, also known as a forehead lift, gives patients a younger, more refreshed look by literally lifting the area above the eyes. Browlift surgery can correct an overhanging brow line, reduce horizontal forehead lines, and other negative features that make you appear tired, sad, or angry.

Most patients seeking a browlift are between the ages of 40 and 60, and wish to reduce the signs of aging that are often most apparent in this area. However, many younger patients also seek browlift surgery to reduce the appearance of frown lines created by stress or excessive muscle activity in the forehead and brow area. Almost anyone can enjoy a more refreshed appearance with this procedure.

Otoplasty – Ear Surgery

Otoplasty corrects protruding or misshaped ears through a safe, effective plastic surgery procedure. Most patients have ears that stick out too far from their head or have ears that are larger than they desire. Otoplasty will correct the protrusion and/or size to look more proportionate to your other facial features.

Children with protruding ears experience ridicule and teasing from their peers, and otoplasty surgery can prevent any psychological damage this may cause. However, many adults also seek otoplasty to reduce the size of their ears or change their shape.

Otoplasty takes approximately two to three hours to complete, depending on the patient’s needs and technique used. The common technique involves a small incision placed behind the ear. The exposed cartilage is sculpted to a more desirable shape and permanent stitches are used to preserve the new shape.
