Minimally-invasive and non-surgical procedures are a great alternative to traditional plastic surgery. By utilizing the latest techniques, scarring becomes a thing of the past. Non-surgical procedures include non-surgical blepharoplasty, chin enhancement, cheek enhancement, liquid facelift, and non-surgical rhinoplasty, just to name a few. The goal of non-surgical procedures is to improve the patient’s natural beauty without making it look unnatural. It is recommended for patients who want to look younger but don’t want to deal with the pain and risks associated with traditional surgery. By using the right balance of non-surgical procedures, Dr. Sheffield can provide you with the best results so you will confidently look and feel good.

Non-Surgical Eyelid Lift (Blepharoplasty)

The area around the eyes can make you look older than you really are. The skin around the eye is very thin, and it becomes thinner over time. The skin also has fewer sweat and oil glands that makes it more vulnerable to aging. In the past, the only solution for the dark circles and bags under the eyes was surgery. The fat is removed or repositioned from under the eyes through surgery. We offer a non-surgical blepharoplasty or eyelid lift. These include the lifting and treatment of upper eyelids, lower eyelids, under eye, tear trough, dark circles, and hollow or sunken eyes.

Non-Surgical Chin Enhancement

The chin needs to be augmented in order to balance the facial features. There are cases in which the chin recedes or doesn’t protrude as much as the facial features, which can lead to an unbalanced face. Through non-surgical chin enhancement, there will be no stitches, scars, or anesthesia. It involves injecting dermal fillers to improve the projection of the chin. The best thing about this procedure is that swelling and bruising rarely occur.

Non-Surgical Cheek Enhancement

Cheek implants give cheeks more volume that will enhance the overall balance of the face. One of the indicators of aging is the loss of volume at the cheek area. Through non-surgical cheek enhancement, we replace the volume of your cheeks in order to lift your face. This also gives improvement of the cheek fold. In the past, doctors insert implants through an incision made inside the mouth. Today, we use injectable fillers instead of fat or implant. It is safer and has no risk of getting infected.

Liquid Facelift

Liquid facelift will give you a definite lift that will make your face look young once again. It enhances the appearance of the eyes as well. Frequently, Dr. Sheffield addresses the areas of the medial and lateral cheek along with hollow area of medial side of the lower eyelid known as the tear through deformity. Marionette lines and folds are frequently injected as well. Neuromodulators such as Botox or Dysport are also used to balance other areas. This can be done one step at a time in order to achieve your needs. The best part about the procedure is that it requires little downtime, and you will be able to get back to your daily routine in no time.

Non-Surgical Facelift

Non-surgical facelift involves the use of fillers primarily for the mid portion of the face along with the marionette lines or shadows. The cheek fold improved when the cheek is lifted. The procedure restores the fullness of the cheeks and face to give the patient a more youthful look. A lot of our patients have already benefitted from non-surgical facelifts. They look younger without the need to go under the knife. Through our minimally invasive methods, we can treat sagging jaws and cheeks, laugh lines, crow’s feet, and a lot more.

Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

There are cases in which non-surgical rhinoplasty is recommended to correct depressions, or enhance the angle or tip of the nose. There are patients who are unsatisfied with their rhinoplasty and want to repair the appearance of their nose. Through injectable fillers, patients will be able to achieve the nose that they wished for, without the pain of surgery. Certain noses that have had trauma in the past can be improved by the judicious placement of filler in order to lessen a deformity or improve the crookedness to some degree. There are even some breathing issues that can be corrected through non-surgical rhinoplasty.

Lip Enhancement or Augmentation

Injectable fillers can provide patients with fuller lips. It can also be used to correct down turned or uneven lips. As a person ages, one’s lips can lose their volume. As a result, lipstick lines are formed. Vertical wrinkles also extend from the lips. The good news is that you can regain fuller lips without undergoing surgery. The results will be natural looking lips.

Gummy Smile Correction

There are people who show a lot of gum when they smile. As a result, they can be too conscious about it. Gummy smile correction is a simple procedure that can greatly improve the patient’s self-esteem. All it takes is a couple of injections of Botox. It is a painless procedure, and the results can last for a maximum of six months. The procedure can also improve asymmetric or irregular smile, wherein one of the areas of the lips is raising higher or dropping lower than the other parts of the lips.

Non-Surgical Brow Lift

The eyebrows can be lifted without surgery through the use of facial fillers and Botox. When you get non-surgical brow lift, you will look younger than before. Not only that, your face will look natural. Your face will not be frozen because of the procedure.

Botox and Dysport

The use of Botox and Dysport can reduce the fine lines and wrinkles in the face. They can also reduce a prominent jawline or raise a sagging brow. Botox has many uses, which is why it is the most popular injectable today for facial rejuvenation.

Injectable Fillers

They have various properties, and Dr. Sheffield will determine which injectable filler is best suited for the patient’s requirements and preferences. Injectable fillers are used to restore volume to hollowed face, eyes, or cheeks. The injectable fillers we use include:
