Our faces are usually the first thing others notice about us. If you are self-conscious or embarrassed about any of your facial features, this can have a significant impact on how you carry yourself and how well you communicate with others. Being confident in the way you look is a central part of your overall general health. Feelings of shame, embarrassment, or self-consciousness can have far-reaching negative psychological, physiological, social, and economic consequences. For those who are not happy with their facial contours, or who wish to turn back the clock of the aging process, there are several invasive and non-invasive cosmetic options available.
A facelift is a surgical procedure that addresses sagging facial tissue to reduce wrinkling and other effects of aging. The trend in facial rejuvenation is to restore volume with fillers and to do minimal techniques with lasers to tighten the skin. Dr. Foster has extensive experience with fillers, and BOTOX®.

Fat injections offer you a natural approach to facial rejuvenation. If you are hesitant to undergo an invasive surgical procedure, Dr. Foster can use fat injections to restore a more youthful complexion to your facial region, or anywhere on your body. This treatment is very safe, and since your own fat is used for the procedure, there is no chance that your body will reject it. Click here to learn more.
The nose is one of the most noticeable facial features, and one of the first things people focus on when they look at you. Unfortunately, the nose is also the first thing to get noticed when it is too large, asymmetrical, or has any other irregular contours. If you are self-conscious or embarrassed by the appearance of your nose then rhinoplasty may be perfect for you. Click here to learn more.
Horizontal forehead lines and the vertical lines that form between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) are often the first wrinkles to appear, and the first to become pronounced, even while the face is totally relaxed. These particular wrinkles and lines tend to have a strong association with what sort of mood we are in. When these lines become pronounced and deep-set, we may not only look older, but also angrier, or more annoyed than we may actually be. This can have far-reaching negative social consequences. For these reasons, individuals with deep-set brow wrinkles are increasingly turning to browlifts to restore their youthful, cheerful appearance. Click here to learn more.
Any combination of aging, sun damage, heredity, smoking, or fluid imbalances can cause your eyelids to sag. These same things can also cause bags to develop under the eyes. These conditions often result in the appearance of fatigue, illness, or any number of negative emotions and moods. Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is a surgical procedure which can reverse these conditions by removing excess skin and fat from the upper and lower eyelids, restoring your youthful, healthy, well-rested appearance.

There are several procedures available to enhance the size and shape of your lips. Many of the injectable fillers used for wrinkle treatment are also effective on lips. Juvederm™, Perlane™, Restylane™ and collagen may be more appropriate for you. Dr. Foster will be able to determine which is right for you. Lips can also be enhanced with fat grafting.

Otoplasty is a common procedure that can help children and adults who have protruding ears, ears that are too large, or other ear irregularities. Otoplasty is, in fact, the most common plastic surgical procedure performed on children. A normal child’s ears are fully formed by the age of five or six and are easily the most prominent feature on their head. It is generally recommended that a child receive ear surgery before he or she begins school in order to thwart any teasing, ridicule, or bullying. Ear surgery can be performed at anytime after the ears are fully developed. Click here to learn more.
Several non-invasive treatments are available to restore skin volume and get rid of facial wrinkles. BOTOX® and injectable fillers such as Juvederm™, Restylane™, and Radiesse™, as well as chemical peels and laser resurfacing can do wonders for maintaining a youthful look. Click here to learn more.
