Facial Surgery in Atlanta, GA
Facial plastic surgery procedures improve visible signs of aging in the face and neck, including sagging of the cheeks, creases below the lower eyelids, jowls caused by loss of muscle tone and aging-related “double chins.” Plastic surgeon Dr. Marisa Lawrence can treat all these signs of aging by tightening the facial and neck muscles and removing excess skin and fat. She may recommend combining two or more procedures for a more dramatic makeover, depending on your cosmetic goals. Dr. Lawrence and her staff serve patients residing in Atlanta, Alpharetta and surrounding areas.
Rhinoplasty surgery improves the appearance of the nose and corrects breathing problems caused by a nasal deformity. Dr. Lawrence can treat a deviated septum, smooth a bump on the bridge of the nose or correct a drooping tip through rhinoplasty surgery.

Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, can accomplish two goals: upper eyelid surgery tightens up a droopy or saggy upper eyelid, and lower eyelid surgery reduces the appearance of bags or dark circles underneath the eyes. Upper and lower eyelid surgery may be performed separately or simultaneously, and may be combined with a facelift.

Facelift is one of the most popular facial plastic surgery procedures. During a facelift, Dr. Lawrence smooths wrinkles and creases under the eyelids, removes loose skin and fat deposits from underneath the chin, lifts sagging cheeks and tightens the face and neck muscles. Facelift surgery has a rejuvenating effect on the face and is often combined with a brow lift or eyelid surgery to further improve the appearance of the area around the eyes.

As people age, the effects of gravity can be seen in their neck, along with exposure to the sun and the stresses of daily life. Deep creases form between the nose and mouth, the jawline grows slack and jowly, and folds and fat deposits appear around the neck. A neck lift improves the most visible signs of aging by removing excess fat, tightening underlying muscles and re-draping the skin.

Otoplasty, or ear surgery, can help prevent children from being teased mercilessly over large or protruding ears. Otoplasty can reduce the size of large ears or “pin” them closer to the head. It can also address a deformity in the ear’s shape. Ear surgery is often performed on children but is also an option for adults.

Brow lift is a great procedure to revitalize the eye area. Also called forehead lift, brow lift can raise a drooping brow, smooth wrinkles and creases between the eyebrows and fill in lines on the forehead.

Lip augmentation increases the volume of thin lips. There are several different ways to enhance the lips, including injectable fillers, lip implants and fat transfer procedures. Some of these offer temporary results while others provide a more permanent solution.

Overtime, wearing earrings may cause undesirable changes in the appearance of your ears. The piercing site and the earlobe itself may elongate. The earlobes may tear or split from even the slightest pull on the earrings, leaving a conspicuous and unsightly appearance. In certain skin types, the earlobes may form keloids (benign but thickened scars), which may be disfiguring and prevent the use of earrings. With earlobe repair, undesirable changes in the earlobe may be corrected to improve appearance, remove keloids, or allow continued use of earrings.

Skin Cancer Reconstruction
If you are diagnosed with a type of skin cancer, your doctor may recommend surgery to remove the cancer and prevent it from spreading. Depending on the type of skin cancer and how much skin and tissue needs to be removed, you may need reconstructive surgery to replace the skin and tissue and minimize scarring. This may include Mohs surgery, which is known as the most effective treatment for most types of skin cancer. This procedure removes the cancerous tissue and minimizes the loss of healthy tissue.
