Brow Lift / Forehead Lift
Many factors can have adverse effects on the forehead, as it is one of the most exposed areas of the body. As we age, the skin on the forehead may begin to lose elasticity, causing it to form wrinkles. Many patients who visit our office often choose brow lift surgery to correct this problem.
The Brow Lift Procedure
A brow lift tightens the skin and underlying muscles of the forehead to produce a more refreshed, youthful appearance. During a traditional brow lift, the skin of the forehead is gently lifted, excess tissue is removed, and muscles are manipulated and adjusted to create a more rejuvenated appearance. The brow lift procedure can be performed on an outpatient basis, and our expert team can usually complete the brow lift procedure within one to three hours. Brow lift can lead to a dramatic improvement in your appearance. Dr. Brian Howard and his staff have the experience and skill to ensure that your procedure is a success. During a plastic surgery consultation, Dr. Howard can determine if a brow lift or a combination of facial rejuvenation procedures is right for you.
Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)
The thin skin around the eyelid area is particularly sensitive to the effects of sun and other environmental factors. Over time, excess skin, fat and wrinkles may begin to appear around the eyes. We offer eyelid surgery (also known as blepharoplasty) to correct this problem. Read more about Blepharoplasty.
The Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery) Procedure
During blepharoplasty, the doctor removes excess skin, fat, and muscle from the eyelid. Depending on individual surgical goals, patients may require an upper eyelid procedure, lower eyelid surgery, or both. Upper eyelid surgery helps to correct the drooping that occurs as a result of excess fat and skin and can even improve vision. Lower eyelid surgery can dramatically improve the appearance of puffy eyes (“bags”). Whatever your surgical goals may be, our plastic surgery team has the skill in eyelid surgery to give you the results you desire. Often, our blepharoplasty patients choose to combine other procedures such as face lift with their eyelid surgery. At your consultation, Dr. Brian Howard will provide you with options that will produce the best possible results. If you live in the greater Atlanta area and are interest in blepharoplasty, contact our the office today.
Otoplasty (Ear Surgery)
The practice of Dr. Brian Howard has been providing women, men, and children in the with quality otoplasty (ear surgery) for many years. Ear surgery is a cosmetic surgical procedure that is most commonly performed to set prominent ears back closer to the head or to reduce the size of large ears. People also have ear surgery to correct malformed ears and ear lobes that have been split from the use of earrings. Read more about Otoplasty.
The Otoplasty (Ear Surgery) Procedure
The method our team uses in performing otoplasty depends on each patient’s individual surgical goals. Dr. Howard has been performing otoplasty for many years and has the expertise to provide you with the best results possible. The ear reaches its adult size at about the age of three. Therefore, children should undergo otoplasty when the cartilage in the ear is strong enough to endure the surgery. Otoplasty provides balance and harmony to the appearance and also helps to increase self-esteem. During a consultation with Dr. Howard, he will answer all of your questions about the procedure and will discuss the risks, benefits, and other surgical concerns in greater depth.

Chin / Cheek Enhancement
A weak or receding chin and hollowed cheeks can make the face appear tired and even affect the appearance of other facial features. Dr. Brian Howard uses the highest quality implants to ensure that your procedure is a success. Chin and cheek enhancement procedures can give your face a more balanced, symmetrical appearance.
The Chin / Cheek Enhancement Procedure
The goal of chin and cheek enhancement is to create a more well-defined chin and jawline and add volume to the cheeks. Facial implants are very effective in achieving this goal. Implants augment the chin and cheek area by adding contour and definition to the face. A variety of cheek and chin implants are available at our practice. Contact our staff to learn more about our services.
As we age, fine lines and wrinkles begin to appear around the lips, and the corners of the mouth may begin to droop. Lip augmentation can enhance your lips by making them fuller and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The procedure is designed to create full, attractive lips that work in harmony with other facial features. Several techniques are available for lip augmentation surgery. For instance, natural or synthetic implants can be used to make the lips fuller, or the body’s own tissue can be manipulated to achieve this same result. Lip augmentation can also be accomplished using a number of injectable fillers such as Restylane® or Juvederm. Whatever results you are interested in achieving, Dr. Brian Howard and his knowledgeable staff will work with you to make certain your procedure is a success.
Sculptra® is a highly effective treatment for patients with noticeable loss of fat in the face (lipoatrophy). This condition, which is common among HIV patients, causes a sunken or hollowed-out appearance.
The Sculptra® Procedure
Sculptra® is injected directly under the skin, stimulating cells to produce collagen. This works to thicken the skin and improve volume in the face. One of the best effects of Sculptra® is that it lasts a considerably long time — in some cases, up to two years after a single treatment. Sculptra® is also used to smooth out wrinkles and correct other skin depressions. Even better, Sculptra® is not derived from animal proteins and therefore requires no skin testing.
