Face Procedures

Facial Surgery in Philadelphia & Montgomery County

Facial rejuvenation is a true marriage of art and science, and Dr. David Horvath is highly experienced in both areas. He will emphasize the natural beauty of your face and enhance it using the latest technology to eliminate years of aging and sun damage. There are many procedures available at Horvath Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Center, including rhinoplasty, blepharoplasty, and non-surgical BOTOX® injections. With so many options, we can find a treatment to meet your needs.

Rhinoplasty

If you feel like you have an imperfect nose and it’s taking away from your overall appearance, a rhinoplasty procedure may be just what the doctor ordered. Dr. Horvath can use rhinoplasty techniques to adjust the size, shape, and position of the nose. He can also correct a deviated septum and restore the nose after an injury.

When performing rhinoplasty, Dr. Horvath corrects flaws in nasal structure by sculpting or removing bone and cartilage in the nose. Parts of the nose can also be augmented using artificial implant materials such as AlloDerm®. Rhinoplasty is typically performed on an outpatient basis.

Immediately after rhinoplasty, it is normal to experience some swelling and bruising in the nose and face. These side effects fade significantly within a few weeks after surgery, and will continue to fade over the next few months. Rhinoplasty patients should avoid activities that could injure the nose during recovery. Please contact our office for more information, or to schedule a rhinoplasty consultation with Dr. Horvath.

Facial Implants

Facial contours can be enhanced by facial implants. They can strengthen the jaw line, bring balance to the cheekbones or chin, and generally improve the basic structure of the face. Facial implants can fill out a face with a “sunken” appearance, bring certain structural components into better proportion, and be used to accentuate other cosmetic procedures such as a facelift or rhinoplasty. Dr. Horvath uses many different types of implant material, including silicone. Here are just some of the facial implant procedures Dr. Horvath performs:

Chin

A chin implant can enhance the structure of your face, for the appearance you’ve always dreamed of. The whole procedure usually lasts less than an hour, and there is little to no visible scarring. Dr. Horvath will shape and fit the implant to your chin, and insert it through an incision made inside the mouth or just under the chin area. The implant will then be placed into a pocket over the front of the jawbone. After chin implant surgery, it is normal for swelling and difficulty talking and chewing to occur for several days. Following your recovery, you’ll have a new look and, hopefully, an improved self-esteem!

Cheek

Full cheeks are a very youthful looking feature. Dr. Horvath can add volume and shape to hollow or flat cheeks using several types of dermal filler products. When injected into the mid-face area, these products provide cushioning and healthy-looking fullness without surgery, incisions or anesthesia. Dermal fillers can also be used to create the illusion of high cheekbones for more elegant looking contours. Another option is fat transfer to the face, in which unwanted fat is removed from an area of the body and injected into the cheeks to add fullness.

AlloDerm®

This natural graft/implant material is a cutting-edge treatment for lower eye-lids, rhinoplasty, lip augmentation and a host of cosmetic procedures. AlloDerm® contains no cells that can cause inflammation, rejection, or allergic reaction in the body. It looks and feels natural, and it is the only graft/implant that is capable of regenerating normal tissue. Processed by the LifeCell Corporation, AlloDerm® is an FDA-regulated material derived from donated human tissue. After a purification process, the donor tissue is reduced to a collagen framework that strengthens the skin. AlloDerm® goes through the same safety protocols as any donor material must, and all donors are meticulously screened by the U.S. Tissue bank. Since the early 1990’s, more than 30,000 patients have been treated with AlloDerm®.

Fillers and BOTOX® Cosmetic

Many of our patients are interested in cosmetic treatments, but prefer to avoid surgery. Injectable products including JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC, JUVÉDERM® XC, JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC, and JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC, offer a whole range of long-lasting facial rejuvenation benefits to our patients without the need for surgery.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Slow the aging process with one of the most popular treatments available for wrinkles and fine lines. BOTOX® Cosmetic is an injectable, natural material that relaxes the muscles below the skin, smoothing away wrinkles to leave the face with a refreshed, youthful appearance. It is approved by the FDA for wrinkle treatment, and is safe enough for almost any patient in the hands of a trained professional like Dr. Horvath. With BOTOX® Cosmetic, you can reduce or eliminate wrinkles, fine lines, and other premature aging symptoms to look and feel your best.

A BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment session is quick and convenient enough to fit the schedule of even the busiest professionals. The entire treatment lasts under 15 minutes, making it easy to get treatment during a lunch break. There is essentially no recovery time, and patients are able to return to their normal daily routines immediately after receiving BOTOX® injections. The benefits of BOTOX® Cosmetic can last up to four months, and subsequent maintenance treatments may last longer.

Kybella

Kybella is a cosmetic injectable clinically proven to reduce submental fat, a.k.a. double chin. Formulated with deoxycholic acid, Kybella is the first and currently only FDA-approved product designed for the treatment of unwanted fat underneath the chin. Kybella is injected under the chin and destroys fat cells contributing to a double chin. No incisions, anesthesia or surgery is required to create a slimmer and sleeker looking chin and jawline.

Restylane®

For a long-lasting, fast-acting treatment to augment thin lips and reduce wrinkles, Restylane® is ideal. The active ingredient in Restylane® is hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally in the body and acts as a cushion and lubricant for body tissues. Since Restylane® is synthesized in a laboratory, there are no animal proteins involved. Also, Restylane® usually leaves no scarring at the injection sites. Dr. Horvath can use Restylane® and the full array of the Restylane® family of products, to enhance the effects of a surgical procedure like blepharoplasty or rhinoplasty, or as a wrinkle treatment for those wrinkles not appropriate for BOTOX® injections. The benefits of Restylane® typically last about six months or more, and treatment can be repeated as needed to maintain results.

Radiesse®

Radiesse® is a dermal filler that works with your body in a amazing way. It immediately adds volume upon injection, and unlike other fillers it continues to work over time. Results may last for a year or more, reducing the need for retreatment and saving you time and money compared with other fillers.

Radiesse® features patented microsphere technology and works by stimulating the production of new collagen around the injection area, contouring and augmenting facial features for a younger appearance. Radiesse® is made from a biocompatible substance that is naturally found in the body, so there’s almost no risk of allergic reaction and very few side effects. It has received approval from the FDA and been extensively tested with excellent safety and efficacy results.

Treatment with Radiesse® is simple and convenient, and can be performed over a lunch hour. Contact Dr. Horvath to learn more about this amazing dermal filler or to schedule a consultation today.

Ultherapy

Ultherapy is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment to lift and tighten skin, primarily in the neck, chin and brow area. The FDA-approved treatment uses ultrasound energy to create changes deep below the surface of the skin for smoother and tighter looking skin. Ultherapy can also be used to minimize wrinkles and lines on the décolletage area of the chest.

Fat Grafting

Fat grafting is the process of removing unwanted fat from one area of the body and injecting it into another area to add shape and volume. Fat transfer is often used to create fullness in the face — particularly the cheeks, lips and hollows under the eyes. As an added benefit, the area from which the fat is taken looks slimmer and smaller after the fat transfer process.

SAFELipo

SAFELipo is a specific type of liposuction that involves three steps: separating the unwanted fat from the surrounding structures, aspirating the fat or removing it from the body, and “equalizing” or evening out the treated area so it looks smooth and perfectly contoured. SAFELipo is performed using special cannulas for optimized fat removal.

Skin Care

Dr. Horvath and our team offer the PCA line of medical-grade skin care products to detoxify, nourish and protect the skin. The products are gentle, yet effective. We can put together a regimen of products from the PCA line designed for specific skin types, including sensitive skin, acne-prone skin or aging skin.

Chemical Peels

Chemoexfoliation, or chemical peels, have been used since the time of the ancient Egyptians to rejuvenate skin. Dr. Horvath has devoted a great amount of training to chemical peel treatments and has extensive experience performing these procedures. Chemical peels simply utilize special solutions that are applied to the skin to remove damaged outer layers and expose the fresh, unblemished skin underneath. This treatment can restore the skin’s youthful appearance, getting rid of wrinkles and age spots.

Dr. Horvath’s preferred method is the Baker Chemical Peel; he actually trained with its creator, Dr. Baker, while in Miami. This phenol peel does wonders for deep furrows and wrinkles. For more superficial flaws, Dr. Horvath uses the popular TCA peel to refresh the skin’s surface layers.
