Facial Rejuvenation & Surgery Highlands, NC

Interested in Facial Rejuvenation or Cosmetic Surgery?

Dr. Buchanan and his exceptional team at the Center for Plastic Surgery have expertise in a broad range of procedures, for both non-surgical and surgical rejuvenation.

As the skin ages, it not only becomes duller and more crinkly from internal changes, it allows other factors to have a greater effect on the tissues of the face and body. In the face, where the muscles of expression attach to the skin, these muscles cause wrinkles and lines to appear more easily. Gravity also pulls the skin, with the sagging tissues causing depressions, folds, and lines. Additionally, we lose fat in some areas and gain it in others with age. To reverse the changes caused by sun-damage and aging, and to help you achieve flawless, youthful skin, we offer the latest techniques for facial rejuvenation and minimally invasive cosmetic surgery.

If you are interested in non-invasive facial rejuvenation, we offer injections of BOTOX® Cosmetic to relax muscles causing lines and wrinkles and fillers, such as Juvéderm®Ultra™, Volbella™, Vollure™ and Voluma® and your own fat. While Botox® reduces wrinkles by stopping the movement of muscle beneath the skin, fillers work by restoring volume to aging skin, filling wrinkles or folds and replacing lost support. For optimum wrinkle and contour correction, we combine these different type of injectables in Today’s Liquid Lift.

At the Center for Plastic Surgery, we also offer the very best in light and laser procedures, to remove the wrinkles and scars that skin care or peels do not easily correct. These include the Luxor® Specialized fast recovery CO2 Laser, and the Ellipse IPL®.

When you visit us for face rejuvenation and minimally invasive cosmetic surgery, you can also benefit from Dr. Buchanan’s outstanding surgical expertise. He developed Today’s Facelift™, an alternative to the traditional facelift that personalizes each person’s needs for a fresher, more youthful, natural, and rested look by observing all the problems from traditional methods and correcting the procedure that caused them. This revolutionary procedure was excellent for a “touch up” at a younger age, or if you had already had a facelift and had reaged. In fact, these two categories constituted 65% of the facelifts he did. With the advent of the new injectables and better fat take, almost everyone in these groups can now be rejuvenated without surgery.

Dr. Buchanan can also improve your appearance and turn back time with a forehead lift, eyelid surgery, liposuction of the neck, lip enhancement, chin augmentation, or otoplasty (ear surgery).

Who is an Ideal Candidate for Facial Rejuvenation?

Because we offer the most minimally-invasive surgical and non-surgical treatments, our services are suitable for a wide range of patients. Regardless of your age, you may be an excellent candidate for some form of facial rejuvenation. You don’t have to wait until the signs of aging have become severe. Some of our treatments are ideal for younger adults who want to postpone their aging process and support their skin before lines, wrinkles, and laxity occur. Others can significantly delay more invasive surgical options. Even if surgery is indicated, it may be something that can be done in the office with local anesthesia and have a fast or little recovery or there may be a non-surgical option.

What Are the Benefits of Facial Rejuvenation?

Facial rejuvenation is a rewarding process that can have very little downtime. Dr. Buchanan focuses on minimally-invasive techniques that do not require general anesthesia or lengthy recovery. With appropriate care that is tailored to your precise needs, facial anatomy, and goals, facial rejuvenation and surgery can pave the way back to optimal confidence and satisfaction with your appearance! Even our more involved procedures require just a few days of downtime to allow swelling and bruising to pass. The local anesthesia used keeps surgical risks to the bare minimum. Once recovered you can enjoy profound, natural-looking results that can last many years.

Procedures We Offer:

  • Injectable facial rejuvenation. Mild to moderate facial aging can now be treated with the utmost convenience using various FDA-approved injectable products, such as Botox® and fillers, off the shelf or your own fat. 
  • Today’s Liquid Lift. With an extensive background in the use of injectables, Dr. Buchanan has developed Today’s Liquid Lift as a non-surgical facelift technique. With virtually no downtime, you can look years younger.
  • Skin Care. Dr. Buchanan learned early in his carrier that smooth, young looking skin was more important than any surgical procedure in rejuvenating the face and incorporates this in his treatment plans.
  • Laser and light treatments. For optimal facial rejuvenation, it is often necessary to address problems such as sun damage, rough texture, and loss of elasticity. Lights and lasers work wonderfully in many situations. Although still used for the fastest results in severe damage, other methods have significantly less down time.
  • Eyelid rejuvenation surgery. Blepharoplasty is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures, designed to rejuvenate the eye area through the careful sculpting of the upper or lower eyelids. Over the years, procedures have become simpler with faster recovery.
  • Forehead lift. With age, the upper face may start to look heavy. The eyebrows can descend over the eyes, making the upper eyelids look baggy. The forehead lift precisely repositions tissue to lift the brows and reduce wrinkles. Newer techniques are less invasive but still dramatically improve the area.
  • Lip enhancement. Beautiful lips have balanced proportions, shape, and definition. With age, each of these characteristics deteriorates. Loss of volume and skin thickness and elasticity are the major causes. Lip enhancement using fillers takes just a few minutes and offers lasting results. 
  • Liposuction of the neck. An angular jawline is a sign of youth. Excess fatty tissue that forms across the upper neck can obscure these angles. Neck liposuction is a brief procedure that restores a youthful appearance to the lower face. 
  • Chin augmentation. Through years of use, doctors have found that Juvederm Voluma, made for cheek augmentation, is also ideal for the enhancement of a weak or receding chin. It is now approved by the FDA for this. Results usually last over two years.
  • Otoplasty. Surgery on the ears, otoplasty, can correct congenital problems such as prominent ears, but is also a beneficial procedure that can refine the shape of the ears, especially the lobes, in relation to the head and face when the ear has just aged. 

Is Cosmetic Face Surgery Safe?

Facial rejuvenation procedures have been performed all around the world for decades. In that time, few serious complications have occurred. This is because, as surgical techniques have evolved, surgeons have gained new ways of protecting their patients from unforeseen issues while also procuring the most natural-looking outcomes. Dr. Buchanan has been performing facial plastic surgery for many years. He is a well-known educator in the area of plastic surgery and is respected by his patients for his compassion, technique, and clear communication throughout the rejuvenative journey. Almost all of the procedures that Dr. Buchanan performs have been modified to be as straightforward and minimally-invasive as possible, decreasing risks and improving cosmetic results at the same time.

How to Choose the Right Cosmetic Procedure for Your Face?

Understandably, you want to take your time choosing the right plastic surgeon to perform your facial rejuvenation treatment. This is as important, if not more so, for non-surgical treatment outcomes as it is for more advanced surgical facial rejuvenation. The first indicator of excellence is board certification. While many other physicians, and even non physicians, perform cosmetic procedures, a plastic surgeon has completed specific training modules in anatomy, techniques, safety, and the performance of a wide variety of cosmetic and reconstructive procedures. In addition to completing this advanced training, Dr. Buchanan also served as a professor in plastic surgery for almost 20 years. Since 1999, he has been in private practice here in Highlands, NC. His wealth of training and experience is demonstrated in his patient reviews and patients’ Before and After images, which we are happy to review with you at your consultation.
