Other Facial Procedures

Even the most subtle facial characteristics can have a marked effect on your overall appearance. If you feel that your face could use some improvements in symmetry or definition, you may benefit from procedures such as ear surgery (otoplasty), chin implant surgery or neck lift. Boston facial plastic surgery performed by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Dax Guenther can add balance to your facial features and help define your profile.

Advanced Techniques & Options

In addition to offering numerous medical spa procedures and skin care services, Dr. Dax uses modern surgical techniques to achieve predictable, natural and long-lasting results.

Facial Implants

Dr. Dax offers cheek and chin implants, although chin implants are more common. Improving the definition of facial angles even slightly can improve the profile and overall balance of the facial features. In some cases, he can combine a chin implant with rhinoplasty to achieve that overall balance. He also performs osseous genioplasty (chin reshaping) by altering the underlying bone if the patient is a candidate for this type of surgery and does not wish to have an implant.

These procedures are performed as day surgeries. As with neck lifts, patients should have a friend or family member assist with recovery; follow-up appointments also take place at 5 to 7 days and at 2 weeks, after which the patient can generally go out in public comfortably.

Otoplasty (Ear Surgery)

When performing otoplasty, Dr. Dax hides the incisions behind the ear so the scars are not visible. He takes extra care to avoid the unnatural “pinned back” appearance. He typically performs this surgery on children who are old enough to handle the physical and emotional aspects of the procedure.

Dr. Dax is the only provider in the Boston area who offers EarWells™ – a highly specialized device that can correct infant outer ear deformities without surgery; he trained in Dallas with EarWells designer Dr. Steve Byrd.

Dr. Dax performs otoplasty as outpatient surgery. After their procedures, patients typically wear a headband for the first few days.

Dr. Dax has highly specialized training in procedures for the face, and he can make small adjustments that make a marked difference. Request a consultation online, or call us at (781) 740-7840 to speak with one of our team members today.
