The eyes are the number one feature that people notice when they first meet. Eyelid bags, sagging skin or wrinkles can give the appearance of being tired, stressed or aged. By removing the unwanted fat or skin and tightening the wrinkles, you can easily strip away 10 years or more from your age.
Dr. Fincher is an expert at eyelid rejuvenation. He co-edited a textbook on Blepharoplasty surgeries and has authored many text book chapters and journal publications on cosmetic eyelid surgery describing the latest techniques for eyelid rejuvenation. Eyelid surgery is done using local anesthesia and the incisions are hidden from site. It is a safe surgery performed on an outpatient basis, generally in less than 1 hour. The recovery time varies between patients, but usually is 7-10 days. Following this short recovery time, results are immediate and last years. Both upper and lower eyelids can be done at the same time, and/or the procedures can be combined with other procedures such as laser resurfacing to maximize results.
In time, gravity, sun exposure, and the stresses of daily life take their toll on our faces: the cheeks relax, deep creases appear beside the mouth, the jawline softens, and folds and fat deposits appear on the neck. Facelifts correct these problems by repositioning fat and tightening skin and muscles, giving your face a fresher, more youthful look. After surgery, most patients appear 15-20 years younger. Dr. Fincher always strives to deliver the maximal improvement with the focus being on restoring his patient's natural beauty. With Dr. Fincher's specialized techniques, there is no concern for having an unnatural or overstretched appearance after surgery.
Dr. Fincher is an expert on various facelift techniques and performs many of his procedures under LOCAL ANESTHESIA. Twilight sedation administered by our anesthesiologists is also available for patients who wish to utilize it or for longer procedures. Dr. Fincher co-Edited a textbook titled Advanced Face Lifting that has already sold thousands of copies, has been published in over 4 languages. In addition, Dr. Fincher is frequently invited to lecture on this topic to his peers at many national meetings.
A facelift traditionally treats both face and neck sagging, however many younger patients or those with only moderate signs of facial aging may be candidates for a MINI-LIFT. The mini-lift is performed using less surgery that translates into less healing time. In both cases, Dr. Fincher hides the incision lines in natural creases so that they are virtually invisible to the naked eye.
The procedure can be combined with a browlift, eyelid surgery, chin implant or laser treatments for more dramatic results.
A neck lift and or neck liposuction can be performed to remove excess fat beneath the chin and tighten loose skin and muscle in the neck. A less invasive alternative to a facelift, the procedure can produce dramatic results in the patient whose chin and or neck has sagged with age or after weight loss but who retain natural youthful appearing facial skin. Neck lifts may also be combined with a chin implant to augment a softening or small chin.
Who hasn't ever wished they had a flatter stomach or an inch or two off of the waist? Some people work out and exercise constantly, but still retain small areas of fat that just won't go away. The lower abdomen, the 'love handles' or 'muffin top', Bra bulges, fatty upper arms or 'Saddle bags" on the outer thighs. These are just some of the more common areas that can benefit from liposculpture/liposuction to remove and contour the difficult areas to provide a more youthful and beautiful body.
Dr. Eddie Fincher uses a combination of traditional liposculpture along with the best laser lipolysis technology, SmartLipo MPX™. SmartLipo is used in areas that can be difficult to extract fat from tissues or it is used to help maximize skin tighteing after the procedure. In short, removing fat, maximizing skin contraction, minimizing healing time and providing the ultimate in skin contouring.
Dr. Fincher customizes his use of Smart Lipo and traditional liposuction to the individual patient’s needs. In all cases, the procedure is performed through tiny punctures placed in as inconspicuous a place as possible; a cannula (small tube) then removes the fat and sculpts the skin to create your new look.
