A large part of achieving good health requires both feeling good and looking good. Confidence in one’s appearance is not a luxury. It is an integral part of one’s self-confidence. Whether you have lived with a particular aesthetic facial challenge for your entire life or just a short time, our doctors and staff can help. As a facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Yellin is intimately familiar with the anatomy, aesthetics and function of the facial structures. This knowledge combined with more than 2 decades of surgical experience enables Dr. Yellin to artistically reconstruct both congenital and acquired facial deformities to help re-establish your confidence and sense of normalcy. If hair loss, either on your head or eyebrow is a component of your deformity, Dr. Anderson, a facial plastic surgeon who limits his practice exclusively to hair restoration, is available to address your concerns.
We invite you to explore this website to learn about the wide variety of reconstructive facial surgery procedures we offer. As a start, one of the most important “procedures” we can offer is helping you learn how to look and feel more beautiful.
After a personalized consultation with either Dr. Yellin, Dr. Anderson or one of our skin care and camouflage make-up specialists, we will recommend the best combination of treatments and procedures to address all of your facial aesthetic issues.
It is important to honestly and openly discuss all of your medical conditions with Dr. Yellin or Dr. Anderson before undergoing surgery. Your overall health and safety are our primary concern. Regardless of health, anyone aged 50 or older is required to undergo a thorough physical examination and be medically cleared prior to any surgical procedure performed in the operating room.
An underlying chronic medical condition, such as high blood pressure, diabetes or depression, does not exclude elective cosmetic surgery; however, such conditions must be well controlled. Likewise, if you are taking a blood thinner such as Coumadin, Plavix or Aspirin, please inform Dr. Yellin so he can best determine how to manage these medications during the peri-operative period. He will also determine whether you’re a good candidate for elective facial surgery and will help you set realistic surgical expectations. Cigarette smokers are encouraged to reduce or quit smoking prior to surgery. Smokers have a greater chance of having problems healing, regardless of the surgical procedure performed.
