When superior care is important

We take the time to listen to questions from our patients and provide honest responses based on our years of experience. We understand that many of these procedures are life altering for our patients. It is a decision that should not be taken lightly and should be only be performed by skilled plastic surgeons.

Chin Implant/Augmentation in Philadelphia, PA

View Our Philadelphia Chin Implant/Augmentation Before and After Pictures

Located in Bala Cynwyd and serving Philadelphia, Pollard Plastic Surgery offers Chin Implant/Augmentation to patients who desire cosmetic procedures and facial surgery.

At Pollard Plastic Surgery, we specialize in helping our patients reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, creases, drooping and many other cosmetic concerns.

The Chin Implant/Augmentation Procedure at Pollard Plastic Surgery

Dr. Pollard will choose the right implant shape and size to best fit your facial structure and meet your desired cosmetic goals. The chin implants are made of a soft, rubbery, flexible material that can be inserted through a small incision. If your implants are made of solid silicone, your surgeon may make a small incision under your chin. Chin implants are typically composed of materials that don’t cause adverse reactions within your body.

You can undergo chin implant surgery by itself, or in combination with other facial surgery procedures such as facelift surgery, lip lift or a cheek implant. A chin implant can be done in the doctor’s office or an outpatient surgery center. In all, the surgery takes approximately 30 to 60 minutes. The procedure will take longer if additional surgical procedures are being performed simultaneously.

Dr. Pollard may recommend other facial surgery procedures in conjunction with a chin implant:

When you place your care in the hands of Dr. Emily Pollard, you can feel confident that you are receiving the highest quality care available.

Chin Implant/Augmentation Candidates

Chin implants can benefit both men and women. However, not all patients are candidates for a chin implant/augmentation.

For a successful outcome in chin implant surgery, your jaw and teeth must function properly. If your chin is slightly weak and your jaw and teeth are functioning well, chin implants may be ideal to help achieve the look you want. You may be a strong candidate for a chin implant if you have used soft tissue fillers such as Restylane or Juvederm to create a stronger chin line.

Most facial surgery procedures require the use of general anesthesia, so you need to be in good health to be considered for our facial surgery procedures and to help fight off any possible infection after surgery.

Many other factors determine if you are a good candidate for facial surgery, so call our office today to schedule your consultation with Dr. Pollard.

Arm Lift/Brachioplasty in Philadelphia, PA

View Our Philadelphia Arm Lift/Brachioplasty Before and After Pictures

Located in Bala Cynwyd and serving Philadelphia, Pollard Plastic Surgery offers arm lift/brachioplasty to patients who desire body contouring surgery.

At Pollard Plastic Surgery, we specialize in helping our patients achieve dramatic results with arm lift surgery. Also known as brachioplasty, an arm lift is a surgical procedure that reshapes and reduces excess skin in the under portion of the upper arm.

The Arm Lift/Brachioplasty Procedure at Pollard Plastic Surgery

An arm lift typically takes 1-3 hours depending on the extent of loose skin on the patient’s upper arm area. It may involve local anesthesia or general anesthesia.

Some patients only require a minimal incision arm lift. It only requires minimal incisions where the inner, upper arm joins the armpit. Other patients who have lost massive amounts of weight following bariatric surgery, may have more excess skin and need an incision that runs from the elbow to the arm pit and onto the side of the chest. Excess fat may be removed with liposuction.

The excess skin is then trimmed, tightened and sutured in place with absorbable stitches that will be removed within 1-2 weeks of the surgery. At this point your skin will be smooth over the new contour of your arm.

Recovering After Your Arm Lift

You should expect some swelling, bruising and mild discomfort after an arm lift procedure, typically disappearing within 2 weeks. Your arms should appear trimmer almost right away. You can help reduce swelling by elevating your arm with pillows during recovery.

General instructions are to avoid any strenuous exercise for one month and avoid heavy lifting for at least six weeks. Dr. Pollard will discuss individual recovery instructions during consultation and after the procedure.

Dr. Pollard may recommend other body contouring procedures in conjunction with an arm lift:

Arm lift/Brachioplasty Benefits

Weight changes, growing older and genetics can cause your upper arms to have a drooping or sagging appearance. For some people, exercise alone is not enough to reduce the extra skin in the upper arms.

An arm lift/brachioplasty at Pollard Plastic Surgery can offer you the dramatic results that you want from body contouring. Patients see immediate results such as reduced sagging skin on arms, tighter and smoother upper arms.

When you place your care in the hands of Dr. Emily Pollard, you can feel confident that you are receiving the highest quality care available.

Arm lift/Brachioplasty Candidates

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, arm lift is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures performed following massive weight loss. This is because people who have lost massive amounts of weight often end up with excess skin hanging under their upper arms. The soft tissue of the arm becomes lax, leading to sagging or “bat wings.”

Sagging in the arms is not limited to people who have experienced weight problems. Thin people can also have sagging upper arms due to the effects of aging and heredity. Even active people who participate in Pilates and strength training cannot get rid of excess, sagging skin that can develop in this area.

Most body contouring procedures require the use of general anesthesia, so you need to be in good health to be considered for our facial surgery procedures and to help fight off any possible infection after surgery.

Many other factors determine if you are a good candidate for facial surgery, so call our office today to schedule your consultation with Dr. Pollard.

What Botox Can Do for You!

Botox® is a diluted form of the botulinum protein. Since the 1990s, many people have been injected with Botox® without any long-term negative effects. It is a safe and effective way to remove the creases that show up on foreheads, crows feet and vertical wrinkles that can appear on an upper lip.

Botox® is not a permanent solution and follow-up visits about three to six months apart are needed to keep the wrinkles from reappearing. A consultation with Carmel, Indiana area dermatologist Dr. Shideler will help you decide how many Botox® treatments are needed.

Is Botox® painful?

Botox® is relatively painless as it is delivered by a quick injection and there is a very short recovery time. There may be mild discomfort when the doctor administers the injections. Some patients report some slight soreness and bruising that may appear a few days after the treatment.

Most patients return to work or other activities right after a Botox® treatment.
How Does Botox® Work?

A Botox® injection weakens the muscles that cause the wrinkles. Weakening the muscle that causes the wrinkles to form creates dramatic improvement in appearance that can be seen within 2-7 days. It rarely interferes with facial expressions.

How Long Does The Botox® Treatment Last?

The muscles weakened by a Botox® injection will eventually regain their strength and the wrinkles may reappear. You can expect a Botox® treatment to last for three months but can last for six months for some patients.

Dr. Shideler has been selected as a member of the Botox National Training Center,one of a select few nationwide designated to train other physicians. To learn more about Botox® treatments, call Shideler Dermatology today at 317-846-2396 to set up a consultation.

What is Revision Rhinoplasty?

Revision or secondary rhinoplasty is the facial plastic surgery procedure performed to correct problems resulting from previous rhinoplasty surgery. The most common and most challenging need for revision rhinoplasty occurs when too much tissue was removed at the previous surgery.

For most rhinoplasty patients problems are minor and can be handled by the original plastic surgeon. The revision rate for rhinoplasty even in the best of hands is between 5-10%. In the event a major deformity it may be better to pursue your second surgery with an experienced facial plastic surgeon in revision rhinoplasty such as Dr. Benjamin Light.

Board Certified by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Dr. Benjamin Light has over 10 years experience in revision rhinoplasty as well as many other facial plastic surgery procedures.

Revision Rhinoplasty challenges

When surgery is performed the second or third time, it is usually much more complex than the original surgical procedure. The natural anatomy of the nose has been reshaped, cartilage has been removed and breathing may be altered. The nasal structure will usually be encased in scar tissue as a result of a previous surgery or surgeries. During a revision rhinoplasty surgery the normal structures will be resculpted.

Often there is a need to rebuild the structure of the nose and therefore pieces of cartilage either from the nasal septum, ear or rib are sometimes required. Some surgeons prefer to use implants such as synthetic materials in a revision rhinoplasty. Some of the more common materials used include gortex, medpore and hard silicone.

Dr. Light’s general philosophy is to always use the patient’s own cartilage if it is available. However, some patients require an implant or injectable in a revision rhinoplasty. Some of the  injectable fillers used to fill in small defects left after rhinoplasty include Restylane®, Artecoll® and Radiesse®.

To find out if you are a good candidate for revision rhinoplasty, request a consultation with Dr. Benjamin Light. For more information contact Decatur, Alabama area Renaissance Facial Plastic Surgery center today for a consultation 1-866-239-FACE (3223).
