Rhinoplasty surgery – Dr Freeman Makeover Charlotte NC

Meet with Charlotte’s top rhinoplasty surgeon to discuss how to improve the appearance of your nose

Rhinoplasty or a nose job is one of the most popular facial plastic surgery procedures and Dr. M.  Sean Freeman is one of the best rhinoplasty surgeons in the Southeast.  When you meet with Dr. Freeman be prepared to discuss your goals for your surgery and your expected results.  Dr. Freeman can make a slight alteration in your nose or more dramatic changes to improve its appearance or function.

Determining good candidates for rhinoplasty

When you are considering the surgery, you should schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Freeman.  He will evaluate your nose and make recommendations on which procedures will improve the appearance of your nose.  Dr. Freeman will typically not recommend the procedure for females younger than age 14 or males before age 16.

The procedure requires a certain amount of artistic skill, along with specialized medical knowledge.  Dr. Freeman approaches rhinoplasty surgery with the goal of maintaining each individual’s unique features and beauty while resolving any nasal issues.  Dr. Freeman has over twenty years of experience specializing in facial plastic surgery and brings this skill and experience to your procedure.

Dr. Freeman will normally perform closed rhinoplasty where he will make small incisions inside your nose where they are not visible.  There is less swelling and bruising following closed rhinoplasty.  Dr. Freeman will perform open rhinoplasty if a patient needs a significant change in the projection of the tip of their nose.  He makes an incision between the nostrils to gain access to the nose’s interior.  Recovery from open rhinoplasty usually takes longer than recovery from closed rhinoplasty and the patient may experience more swelling and bruising.

Rhinoplasty surgery can radically improve your appearance.  Call Charlotte’s top rhinoplasty surgeon, Dr. M. Sean Freeman to discuss your surgery options.

Minituck

Minituck – Charlotte NC

Elect minituck surgery to reverse the signs of aging

If you have sagging skin around your neck, jawline or cheeks, a minituck may be the answer to improve these signs of aging.  One of Charlotte’s top facial plastic surgeons, Dr. M. Sean Freeman can perform his version of the minituck, called a SignatureLift.  This is a procedure he developed and perfected for his younger patients who are not ready for a full facelift.

The minituck or SignatureLift does not make the extensive improvements like a full facelift.  Dr. Freeman does not recommend a minituck for problem areas such as the forehead or brow.  However, since recovery time is much quicker than following a full facelift, many younger women are electing to have a minituck to reverse early signs of aging such as loose skin or sagging that is just starting.

What happens during a minituck?

While not as invasive or extensive as a full facelift, the minituck is still invasive.  To determine if you are a good candidate for a minituck or SignatureLift, schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Freeman.  During your appointment, Dr. Freeman will evaluate your face and skin determine if you can benefit from a minituck.

The procedure will normally take about an hour and your recovery time will be about two to three days.  Most patients can return to work within a week following the procedure.  There will normally be minimal bruising or swelling.  Dr. Freeman’s SignatureLift helps reverse the signs of early aging and can help you return to a younger, more refreshed appearance.
