Bethesda MD Plastic Surgery - Face Procedures

Diane L. Colgan, M.D., Chartered 

Signs of aging that include loose skin, deep wrinkles, and lost tissue elasticity are most noticeable and difficult to disguise on your face. While makeup may cover some flaws, the only long-lasting way to achieve a rejuvenated appearance is through cosmetic procedures that are designed to target these common and specific facial problems.

Dr. Diane Colgan offers facial cosmetic surgery and non-surgical facial enhancement treatments in Bethesda that help patients take years off of their appearances. Our cosmetic plastic surgery procedures and non-surgical services can help correct a broad range of issues with the way facial skin changes over time, or even genetic flaws that have been problematic for years.

Improving Facial Aesthetics with Cosmetic Plastic Surgery

Cosmetic facial surgery is utilized to correct more complex issues that may not be comprehensively addressed without surgical intervention. This includes reshaping nostrils, removing excess skin, and lifting drooping tissue.

Cosmetic surgical procedures offered with Dr. Colgan include:

Facelifts – Lost facial volume and lax tissue elasticity can create loose skin around cheeks, jowls, or under the chin, but all of these problem areas can be targeted with various facelift procedures. Dr. Colgan provides facelifts in Bethesda that include treatment for the upper, mid, and lower facial areas. With our commitment to delivering natural-looking results, patients can enjoy a refreshed appearance that compliments their natural aesthetic.  Facelift surgery treatment can also help to effectively target deep creases around the mouth or folds and wrinkles that cannot be reversed topically.

Eyelid Surgery – Excess skin on upper eyelids and fat pads that forms bags under the lower lids can make you look more tired than you feel and contribute to an aged affect that may not accurately reflect your vitality. With eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, Dr. Colgan can remove this excess tissue and bags under the eye areas.

Nose Jobs (Rhinoplasty) – Even a small bump on the bridge of your nose or nostril width that is out of balance with the rest of your appearance can be a distracting component of your facial aesthetic. With rhinoplasty, more commonly called cosmetic nose surgery or a nose job, Dr. Colgan can smooth bumps and create an appealing new contour – small changes that make a positive impact on your overall appearance. Our goal with nose surgery is to help you feel better about your appearance, not to make you look like someone else, but how you have always imagined yourself.

All facial cosmetic surgery procedures are performed under general anesthesia, administered by trained professionals, at Suburban Hospital/Johns Hopkins Surgery Center.
