Neck & Jowl Rejuvenation

I look in the mirror and see saggy jowls and my neck just looks old! What can I do?

Also known as a neck and jowl lift, or neck and jowl rejuvenation, Platysmaplasty restores youthful contours and clean jawlines. Dr. Boxrud often pairs this facelift with eyelid contouring or forehead lifts. It’s very enduring with effects lasting ten years or more, depending on health factors and sun exposure.

What about Feather Lifts?

Feather lifts, or Thread lifts, are minimally invasive procedures where thin, flexible sutures are threaded underneath the skin from the ear to the hairline to rejuvenate sagging foreheads, neck, eyebrows and cheeks. You’ll see the best results after a few months and the benefits of a feather lift can last up to 3-4 years.

BOTOX isn’t working as well for me as it used to, would I be a candidate for a browlift?

If the temporary solution of BOTOX is no longer working, Dr. Boxrud may recommend a combination of browlift (you may have heard it called a forehead lift) and then mild ongoing use of BOTOX to maximize the effects. The great thing about browlifts is that they are minimally invasive and straightforward cosmetic surgical procedures. You lose the creased forehead, heavy drooping brows and those deep stubborn creases between the eyes that make you look permanently angry.

Eyelid Contouring aka Eyelid Surgery

Why would I want eyelid surgery?

How often have you heard “Feel ok? You look tired” when you had a full night’s rest? Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a simple cosmetic procedure that does more to make you look refreshed, relaxed and energetic than any other. It takes care of sags, bags, excess skin and wrinkles that drag down your appearance. Eyelid surgery is as popular with men as with women, has low down time and quickly visible results!

Do I only do upper eyelid, lower eyelid or both?

Talk to Dr. Boxrud about your eyelid surgery. She’s at the forefront of aesthetic eyelid enhancement and is a firm believer in the “less is more” philosophy. Dr. Boxrud uses the newest techniques for eyelid surgery, including local anesthetic, so you can expect minimal down time and maximum results.

Stem Cell Facial Rejuvenation

Is it true that stem cells from fat tissue are being used in facial rejuvenation?

Yes. Also called precursor cells, these stem cells come from your body’s fat tissues to restore a youthful appearance. Not only are stem cells abundant and easily accessible, but also, there is no rejection risk. The procedure is a lot like the facial fat injections Dr. Boxrud has always provided. Low pressure liposuction takes the fat, it’s processed and the tiny cells injected where they will do the most good, even mixed to fortify fat grafts.

Dr. Boxrud knows of many conditions that can be improved using stem cell therapy. Set up a consultation with her to discover if you have a condition that can benefit from it.

Facial Skin Rejuvenation

Can I use my own fat to plump up my hollowed cheeks and thinning lips?

Yes. Facial fat injections are another way to use our own body’s materials to rebuild lost volume. Fat injections are minimally invasive, heal quickly and the cosmetic procedure can happen under local anesthesia. Rather than undergoing major surgery, talk to Dr. Boxrud; she is a published expert on how use fat both alone and with other procedures to enhance appearance safely and naturally.
