At Guelph Facial Plastics your privacy is of the utmost importance. We recognize that having a before and after gallery is important when researching cosmetic surgery and choosing a provider. However, many of our patients prefer to keep their procedures private. The following photos are a small sample of Dr. Brace’s patients who have been gracious enough to have their photos shared to help educate others. There are many more before and after photos to view privately in office with Dr. Brace during consultation.
A rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure to alter the shape of the nose. A septorhinoplasty is a procedure that also addresses the nasal septum (middle wall inside the nose) to improve nasal breathing.
Our eyes are the focal point during face-to-face interactions, and changes with age can often lead to a tired appearance. This can be from loose skin, puffiness, fine wrinkles and deep shadows. A blepharoplasty is a surgery that tightens the eyelids and gives them a rejuvenated appearance.
A common cosmetic concern that occurs with age is the development of jowls, loose neck skin, fine lines around the mouth, deep smile lines (nasolabial folds) and hollowing under the eyes. This is the result of tissue descent in a ‘down and in’ direction that naturally occurs with aging.
Dr. Brace’s incision-less surgical techniques help to reduce the prominence of ears considered too large, or ears that are poorly integrated with the rest of one’s facial structure. Genetics is responsible for most of the irregularities or odd appearances in one’s ears, but an otoplasty (ear surgery), can correct this easily.
Many of the natural signs of aging affect the neck first. Dr. Brace chooses from a variety of techniques and neck lift options depending on the conditions and concerns a patient presents with. Neck lift surgery is often but not always done in combination with a facelift.
Skin Cancer Reconstruction
Skin cancer can be a daunting diagnosis. Dr. Brace helps patients who have been given this diagnosis by removing the cancerous growth and then making the once-affected area look as natural as possible using a local flap or skin graft.
A lift lip enhances the aesthetics of the lips to meet a patient’s unique goals. Both men and women may have lip lifts for a number of reasons, whether to make the lips more prominent, more feminine, or more masculine.
Botox is the most widely administered nonsurgical means of facial enhancement. Targeting the dynamic lines that occur when we communicate or express our emotions through the facial muscles, Botox safely renders certain nerve communication inactive, producing a more youthful and attractive complexion.
CO2RE Laser is the most powerful laser skin resurfacing treatment available, helping Dr. Brace’s patients reduce the appearance of fine facial lines and wrinkles, acne and other scars, and textural abnormalities. Moles and skin lesions can also be quickly removed with CO2RE Laser.
Combining the benefits of subdermal heating and microneedling, Profound laser treatment makes for an excellent technique of facial rejuvenation. Profound has a wide range of uses and is best suited to patients looking to turn back the clock on facial aging.
Yet another powerful laser in Dr. Brace’s nonsurgical arsenal. The Vbeam Perfecta reduces redness, sunspots, and postinflammatory hyperpigmentation, as well as a wide range of the most common vein anomalies on the face, including spider veins, scars, bruises, and venous lakes.
Tear Trough Filler
As the eyes are among the most prominent facial features, a little tear trough filler goes a long way. In this procedure, small amounts of a dermal filler consisting of naturally occurring hyaluronic acid is placed subdermally under the eyes to correct volume loss and smooth wrinkles.
For lobuloplasty, gauge ear, slot ear, and lacerated ear repairs, the ear lobe is anesthetized and the ear is repaired. Tiny sutures are used to close the skin.
Lip filler will increase height or size, reduce wrinkles, accentuate borders, and create a stylized ‘keyhole’ lip appearance
