    Your Guide to Facial Implants

    Last updated 3 months ago

    Facial implants can be used for a variety of purposes. Whether you are interested in augmenting your natural facial structure, reconstructing a less desirable feature, or rejuvenating a part of your profile, facial implants may be able to help. Available in a variety of forms, including cheek, jaw, and chin, facial implants can help you to look and feel your very best. Check out our overview of this common procedure.


    The facial implant procedure is somewhat different than facelift Santa Barbara, as it relies on a solid and formed implant placed under the skin in order to augment and enhance natural features. But both procedures have the new result of improved facial appearance and an increase in self-esteem.Implants can be used to create facial symmetry and balance and fight the visual effects of aging. By sharing your procedure goals with your plastic surgeon, he or she can help you to determine what cosmetic procedures may be necessary to accomplish your objectives.


    In a procedure that can be done in as little as thirty minutes, a chin implant is placed through the lower lip and under the chin. Designed to increase the size and protuberance of the chin, a chin implant is particularly useful for creating facial balance by offsetting a disproportionate forehead or mid-face.


    Ideal for patients with a weak or poorly defined jaw, a jaw implant can help to increase the width of the lower third of your face. Placed inside the lower lip, jaw implants can be used to improve the contours of the lower portion of your face.


    Cheek implants are most commonly placed through the upper lip. By adding volume to the face, they can be used to help combat the natural recession and flattening of the face that occurs with age.


    In most cases, implant surgery is done on an outpatient basis. Depending on both your procedure and your doctor’s preference, your surgeon may use general anesthesia or a combination of a local anesthesia and an oral sedative.

    How Does Our Skin Change With Age?

    Last updated 4 months ago

    Aging is a natural process. However, no one wants to look as old as they actually are! Unfortunately, as our body’s largest organ, our skin is far from impervious to the effects of aging. For example, as you age your skin will become naturally drier. Your skin will also likely become more delicate and prone to wrinkles and facial creases. Gravity will also impact your body’s exterior, causing sagging, stretch marks, and drooping. Age spots, sometimes referred to as liver spots, may also appear on your skin. While harmless, these spots of excess pigmentation can be unflattering.

    To improve your skin and reverse the effects of aging, contact Dr. George Sanders. Our experienced and professional team can help to rejuvenate your appearance with a variety of treatments, including laser skin resurfacing, facial implants, and more.

    All About Fraxel Laser Skin Resurfacing

    Last updated 4 months ago

    Laser skin resurfacing can provide patients with an excellent and corrective skin rejuvenation option, appropriate for treating wrinkles, scars, sunspots, stretch marks, and more. The Fraxel laser provides one such laser treatment choice. The Fraxel laser is particularly well-suited for precision corrective work. Unlike other lasers, Fraxel does not resurface the entirety of the face during treatment. Instead, Fraxel uses fractionated technology to pinpoint and treat specific problem areas. As a result, patients experience fewer side effects, shorter recovery time, and less social downtime. Most patients require anywhere from one to five treatments, depending on their skin needs.

    Will Health Insurance Cover My Procedure? | From the Desk of Dr. Sanders

    Last updated 4 months ago

    We get questions from patients about health insurance on a regular basis. While it is possible for health insurance to cover some or all of your procedure, a clearly cosmetic operation such as a facelift would not warrant insurance participation. Making sense of what operations may or may not be covered can be difficult. Take some time to read Will Health Insurance Cover My Procedure?”  to explore this topic further.  If you have more questions about health insurance, give us a call at (818) 528-6125.

    Why Choose a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon?

    Last updated 4 months ago

    Are board certified plastic surgeons better than those who are not board certified? The answer to this simple question is yes: board certification means that your plastic surgeon has been tested by and meets the standards set by the American Board of Medical Specialties. These standards include a minimum of five years of surgical training following a standard medical school education, with two of those years specializing in plastic surgery. The AMBS requires that plastic surgeons prove they are well-trained and up to date on the latest techniques, technology, and health information by passing a written and oral exam before they receive certification. Board certified plastic surgeons are also held to the highest standard of ethics and accountability.  By choosing a board certified plastic surgeon, you are ensuring you get the highest level of expertise and care in the field of plastic surgery.

    Dr. George Sanders is a board certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience in a variety of procedures. If you’d like to learn more about Dr. Sanders, please call (818) 528-6125. Check out our website to read more about breast implants, tummy tucks, and liposuction in Encino, CA.
