Among the countless options available to cosmetic surgery patients who are seeking a refreshed and vibrant appearance, there are three procedures that lead the pack in terms of popularity. Around the world, cosmetic surgery patients widely opt for the eyelid lift, the facelift, and hair replacement or transplantation procedures more frequently than other procedures. Dr. Keller is a world renowned plastic surgeon, who is sought out by some of the world’s most prestigious surgeons and teaching programs, to teach his own perfected techniques to fellows and practicing surgeons. At his own practice in Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, and for patients around the globe, Keller’s technique is highly reputed for its results – a subtle and natural look that delivers a well-refreshed and younger appearance for his clients. You may be wondering, “How does Dr. Keller produce such superior results with his personal technique?” Without giving all of our Dr. Keller’s secrets away, let’s visit these top three popular procedures, and how Dr. Keller performs them!
The Eyelid Lift
An eyelid lift, or Blepharoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure that removes sagging folds of skin from the upper and lower eyelids, as well as tightening the muscle and skin tissue surrounding the eye area. A Blepharoplasty requires tiny incisions through which any loose, sagging skin or muscle tissue around the eye area are tightened, achieving a refreshed and youthful appearance. Blepharoplasty is a popular procedure, because it effectively eliminates these sagging skin folds from the upper and lower eyelids and from beneath the eyes, making the upper face look more toned and youthful. However, eyelid lifts do not eliminate lines and wrinkles that form at the corners of the eyes, such as laugh lines or crow’s feet. Because Dr. Keller pursues the most optimal course of treatment to deliver beautiful results for each patient, if a patient has concerns about lines and wrinkles around the eye area, Dr. Keller will review all complimentary procedures and / or treatments, and recommend an overall plan, such as combining a blepharoplasty procedure with an additional treatment to better address those concerns. Many patients choose to combine eyelid surgery with a brow lift to rejuvenate the entire upper face.
There have been many articles written about the beauty and expertise of Dr. Keller’s facelift procedures (Rhytidectomies) and inimitable technique. Generally speaking, a face-lift is performed to elevate the skin and tighten the tissues and muscles in the face.
Fat in the face and neck areas may be sculpted, removed or repositioned. Facial skin is then re-draped over the newly repositioned contours of the face. Excess skin is removed, and the wounds are stitched or taped closed. Dr. Keller is in high demand year-round for the most advanced type of facelift, the deep plane facelift. During a deep plane facelift, similar incisions to a SMAS facelift are used, but this procedure actually releases and lifts deeper muscles and connective tissues of the face and in the area near the jowls and folds around the mouth. One cannot explain the magic of artistry, and Dr. Keller’s deep plane facelifts are truly art. He is lauded and recognized as being the world’s foremost expert in the deep plane facelift. The particular style of Dr. Keller’s facial plastic surgery technique is most often described as being highly natural and subtle, while still delivering long lasting desired results of a deep plane facelift, such as a far more youthful appearance that lasts well beyond surgery.
Hair replacement or transplantation
Another cosmetic procedure that is always in high demand the world over, is hair replacement, or hair transplantation procedures. After all, what is more important to our feeling self-confident than a healthy mane of hair? While Dr. Keller’s patients know that Dr. Keller always strives to offer the newest and most effective technological developments in hair restoration and all procedures to his clients, his new patients will be relieved to know that today’s Hair transplant procedures are highly effective (close to 100% successful) and have advanced significantly from the days of reductions, flaps, and large hair plugs. Hair transplants are typically permanent, and require the surgeon to relocate genetically permanent hair along the back of the scalp to balding areas. While it requires technical expertise, hair transplantation is an artistic endeavor. Combining this technical expertise and artistry is our winning formula for producing the most natural, “out of the shower” appearance that our hair transplant patients love. Because Dr. Keller performs plastic surgery in the forehead and scalp, he understands and uses the anatomy of your scalp’s natural hair distribution to reconstruct anterior hairline points, the “apex” of the natural hairline recession points, and the hairline in the temple.
Dr. Keller defined this natural anatomy and published it in the hair journal, through a thorough study of the anatomy of hair as related to the scalp and muscles. This natural anatomical approach to reconstructing your hairline prevents undesirable odd looks (such as the “mohawk look”) seen in so many other hair transplants performed by less experienced surgeons. Dr. Keller’s creative and natural technique deliver a reliable, fully natural “out of the shower” appearance that goes undetected every time!
