Numerous studies have shown that heterosexual women (and homosexual men) prefer faces with masculine traits. Such features include prominent and broad cheekbones a relatively longer lower face, developed brows, and chiseled jawlines. Dr. Blyer can assess your face and create more sculpted chiseled features. This can be done with a fat transfer, fillers, or something more permanent like facial implants. Dr. Blyer is an renowned expert in facial implants and has written medical text books on the subject.
My creating well hidden incisions in the hairline, Dr. Blyer can reduce and resculpt your forehead. This can be dramatic for those who have severe “frontal bossing” or protrusion of the bones above your brows. Depending on the thickness of bone, this procedure can be relatively simple or very complicated. Dr. Blyer invented a new surgical technique for complicated forehead reductions that has gained tremendous excited around the medical community. The results are outstanding and the complications that can be high with this type of surgery are minimal.
As early as one's late teens or early 20s, hair loss (alopecia) is a common problem that can be very distressing. It often begins with a receding hair line or thinning in the crown and can worsen over time, resulting in complete or partial baldness. Shedding some hair each day is normal, but if you notice you're suddenly losing significant amounts of hair or missing patches of hair on your scalp, it may be time to talk to consider a hair transplant. Hair trasnplantation is the most common cosmetic procedure for men.
Hair transplants are performed under local anesthesia in the office and is essentially painless. Immediately after, you will not need any dressing or bandages. The hair can be washed immediately. Pinpoint crusts which are barely noticeable cover the grafts for 7-10 days, and then disappear. Most people return to work the next day. Strenuous activity can be resumed in 3 days. After a short resting phase of three to four months, the hair begins to grow at a rate of half inch per month, and continues to grow forever.
This is variable but usually 1000 - 2000 grafts per session. Generally 1 - 2 sessions are recommended to do an entire frontal area or the bald spot on top of the head. This can be done in 4 - 8 months or over a longer period of time depending on the patient's preference.
Male to female (facial feminization procedures)
Dr. Blyer’s understanding of the face is second to none. For those undergoing transition procedures, there are numerous facial traits that can destroy one’s chance at facial femininity. Dr. Blyer has vast experience in this field, has written articles and book chapters on the topic of facial resculpting, and has lectured worldwide on new techniques.
Jaw surgery is probably the most life changing surgery we perform in cosmetic enhancement surgeries.
Corrective jaw surgery repositions misaligned jaws. This not only improves facial appearance, but also ensures that teeth meet correctly and function properly. The affect of surgically moving the jaws will have an impact on the nose, cheek bones, neck line, and chin. People with "Jay Leno chins" or recessive jaw lines, or very gummy smiles are often candidates for this type of surgery.
