Face Procedures Monterey
Dr. David T. Morwood performs a number of face procedures to enhance patient aesthetics. Surgical and non-surgical face procedures allow Monterey patients to safely and effectively achieve their beauty goals.
Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, removes excess fat and skin from the lower and upper eyelids to give you a fresher and more youthful appearance. It corrects puffy bags and drooping eyelids that make you look tired and older than you really are. Eyelid surgery is also ideal for people with excess eyelid skin that impedes vision. The procedure usually takes one to three hours.
A facelift, or rhytidectomy, lifts and tightens underlying tissues to restore the youthful aesthetic of the face. Aside from removing excess fat, it also addresses loose neck skin to make you look younger. The facelift is popular among men and women who are at least 40 years old. It usually lasts several hours and requires general anesthesia.
Natural Neck Lift
A neck lift targets the neckline, jawline, and chin by repositioning and tightening the sagging skin around the neck. It involves making incisions around the ears and small ones beneath the chin, removing excess skin, tightening loose platysma muscle, and treating both sides of the face to maintain facial symmetry.
Botox is a non-surgical injection that makes frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead creases, and vertical bands in the neck less visible. The toxin in the treatment blocks the nerve impulses in the target area, keeping the muscles that cause wrinkles relaxed, resulting in wrinkle-free skin. Botox results will last for three to four months on average depending on the severity of the wrinkles.
Rhinoplasty changes the proportions of the nose, improving overall facial harmony. It can correct the size of the nose, depressions or humps on the nasal bridge, the bridge’s width, the nostrils’ position or size, the size or shape of the nasal tip, nasal asymmetry, and upturned, wide, or large nostrils. Rhinoplasty also addresses structural defects to treat impaired breathing.
Medical-grade skincare products treat skin problems like age spots, fine lines, acne, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, skin laxity, and rosacea. These products help people whose skin requires an advanced skincare regimen. After the patient consults with Dr. Morwood, he will recommend the most suitable products based on skin tone, type, and conditions being treated.
Skin cancer affects over 500,000 people every year. Most types of skin cancer are addressed surgically by a plastic surgeon or dermatologist. Lesions can be removed via excision, leaving a small, barely visible scar. They can also be addressed with electrodesiccation or curettage using an electric current to kill cancer cells and prevent excessive bleeding.
Other treatments may include cryosurgery, topical chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or Mohs surgery. If the skin cancer has grown bigger, affecting larger parts of the body, major surgery might be needed.
A TCA peel enhances the skin using trichloroacetic acid, which removes dead skin cells to give way to fresh new cells. It is a treatment that addresses age lines, sun damage, acne scars, brown spots, blemishes, and more. TCA peels may be classified as light, medium, or deep.
Carmel Mini Lift
A Carmel Mini Lift allows for shorter incisions to minimize post-surgical marks. These incisions are often made in a W shape. They start under the hair of the sideburns to the curve above the ear. Then, the incisions go underneath and around the earlobe before going to the back of the ear. Dr. Morwood then lifts and tightens the SMAS layer for longer-lasting and incredibly natural results.
