BOTOX® COSMETIC AND DYSPORT®

BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® in Chicago and Highland Park

BOTOX® Cosmetic (onobotulinum toxin A) and Dysport® (abobutulinum toxin A) are FDA-approved injectable treatments that are used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines in the face. The areas that are most commonly treated are the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes (crow’s feet). The medication works by blocking the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, thereby diminishing activity of the muscles treated. When these muscles are relaxed, wrinkles are smoothed and the surface of the skin appears to be more youthful.

Not all frown lines and wrinkles are caused by advanced age. In fact, many patients seeking an effective wrinkle solution are between the ages of 25 and 35. Even youthful skin can develop unwanted lines due to the overuse of certain muscles in the face. Fortunately, Dysport® and BOTOX® Cosmetic can help.


IN NEED OF A BROW LIFT?

OUR CHICAGO OFFICE HAS YOU COVERED

Aging isn’t fun. It’s an inevitable part of life that you just have to get used to. The signs of aging are always apparent no matter where you go. But, just because you’re aging doesn’t mean you have to suffer from the effects it causes. At Wiesman Cosmetic Surgery & Wellsness Institute in Chicago, IL, we know a thing or two about cosmetic, plastic, reconstructing and hand surgery (Yes, hand surgery. You read that right). Our core value has never wavered when it comes to providing our patients with the best service available in the Windy City. We follow a strict system: WE CARE (Welcoming, Efficient, Comforting, Accountable, Respectful, Excellence). Everything we do revolves around you, our patient. Providing excellent service in a comfortable atmosphere is how we roll. It’s understandable for prospective patients to be a little weary of any surgical corrections to the face, including brow lifts. But, when you have surgeons like Dr. Gary Wiesman and his son, Irvin, in your corner, you have nothing to fear.

What Exactly Is A Brow Lift?

Gravity is a very powerful force. So powerful, in fact, that it can cause your face to do funny things over the course of your life. It commonly shows in your forehead, where the soft tissue resides. It’s not just the forehead that’s affected. The immediate areas surrounding the forehead (upper eyelids and eyebrows) are prone to sagging. Nobody wants a face that sags, especially in the upper part of your forehead. It’s for this reason that a brow lift is the best procedure for those who want a more youthful look. The procedure tightens those same soft tissues in the forehead ergo heavily reducing the signs of aging.

Reasons Behind Opting For Treatment

You could choose not to do anything at all and live with a sagging brow. We won’t think of you any differently. But, if it’s something that is really bothering you and you’ve given it some serious thought, it may be just what you need.

There are many reasons people choose this type of treatment:

  • They’re tired of dealing with a sagging or low eyebrow that makes their face look permanently sad or tired.
  • The effects of deep horizontal forehead creases has driven them crazy.
  • Frown lines are found between their eyebrows
  • There’s an exorbitant amount of excess skin hanging over their eyes

Deciding whether or not you could use treatment should be left to you and our team in Chicago, IL. Dr. Wiesman, or his son Irvin, will discuss your options first. It’s the easiest way to get that youthful look you’ve wanted for years. We welcome all patients scattered throughout the Chicagoland area, including Highland Park, Oak Park, Norridge, Glenview and beyond.


COSMETIC FILLERS IN CHICAGO AND HIGHLAND PARK

Cosmetic Fillers

Available:

As each year passes, the fat, elastin, and collagen that once plumped your skin begins to break down. The youthful look of baby-smooth skin then gives way to fine lines and wrinkles, causing an outward appearance that often doesn’t match your age, inside or out. If the mirror is no longer your friend, it might be time to soften the signs of aging with cosmetic fillers.

Injected directly into problem areas, cosmetic fillers are a great non-surgical choice to achieve a younger look. Not just for wrinkles, cosmetic fillers can reduce the gaunt appearance of cheeks, create fuller lips, and even mask dark circles under the eyes by reducing shadows and puffiness. Our plastic surgeons offer multiple options, including:

Belotero

Wiesman Institute has the new FDA-approved cosmetic filler Belotero.

Neck Lines

Are the lines and wrinkles in your neck aging you?  Belotero is the perfect filler for this area because it can be injected superficially – just under the skin.  Check out the video from “The Doctors” show and see how easy and painless it is to eliminate those horizontal neck lines so you can put those turtlenecks away!

Eyes

Finally, a solution for those deep undereye circles that make you look so tired!  Belotero is unique because it does not cause a bluish hue – so it is perfect for the eye area.

Our doctors are using Belotero, a new, lightweight hyaluronic cosmetic filler that fills in the hollows without puffiness or bumps that have occurred with other products.

Lips

This “no-lump effect” filler is ideal for enhancing your lips and giving you a more sultry, youthful appearance.

Sculptra Aesthetic

Another new product, Sculptra yields results that can last for up to two years. With three treatments over a period of a few months, patients will see a significant reduction in lines and wrinkles. Sculptra uses poly-L-lactic acid to replace lost collagen, yielding results that look natural and will help you boost your confidence.

During your consultation, you will learn how cosmetic fillers can help you reverse the signs of aging - so you can look younger, refreshed and rejuvenated.

EAR SURGERY (OTOPLASTY) IN CHICAGO AND HIGHLAND PARK

Ears that protrude noticeably or that are exceptionally large can cause self-consciousness. For children, conspicuous ears can result in teasing. Ear surgery, also known as "otoplasty," can help both adults and children who are unhappy with the profile of their ears.

A child's ears are almost fully grown by age four, so ear surgery is usually performed during childhood or the early teenage years, although there is no additional risk for adults who wish to undergo otoplasty. The surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure in the comfort of our Joint Commission-accredited in-office surgical suite.

There are several methods used to reshape prominent ears. In one of the most common, an incision is made on the back of the ear. The surgeon reshapes and removes cartilage in the ear until the desired shape is achieved. The small scar from the incision fades over time.

EYELID SURGERY (BLEPHAROPLASTY)

Sagging upper eyelids and bags beneath the eyes can make you look old and tired - regardless of your age or how many hours you sleep. If your eyes do not reflect the way you feel, we can help. Using advanced plastic surgery techniques, we can reduce the appearance of drooping eyelids, making you look years younger.

Eyelid surgery, also called "blepharoplasty," is performed as an outpatient procedure in the comfort of our in-office surgical suite.

During the procedure, your plastic surgeon makes small incisions that are hidden in the natural lines of your eyelids.  He then removes excess fat and tightens any loose skin and muscle. This gets rid of the drooping, tired aspect from eyelids and leaves your eyes looking much more youthful.

FACELIFTS IN CHICAGO AND HIGHLAND PARK

Your age does not have to show on your face. Wrinkles, sagging skin, and other annoyances naturally appear as people grow older. Fortunately, there are ways to reverse these visible signs of aging. At our Chicago plastic surgery office, we offer a variety of different procedures to help you turn back the clock, including facelift surgery.

With facelift surgery, a more youthful appearance is restored to your face by removing excess fat and tightening muscles and skin. This results in a much smoother face that is free of wrinkles and sagging jowls.

Before your procedure, you’ll meet with Dr. Irvin Wiesman to discuss your facelift surgery goals. In order achieve the results you desire, we need to know specifically what you’d like your facelift to accomplish. Dr. Wiesman believes that this consultation is the time for you to verbalize and describe the look you want.

The Facelift Chicago Loves

Depending on the specifics of your surgery, you’ll either be given general anesthesia or IV sedation and a local anesthetic to numb your skin. For a traditional facelift, incisions are made starting near your temples and circling around the front of each ear. Then, the skin is raised so we can tighten the muscle and tissue underneath. Your own body fat is often used to help restore volume and a youthful look with a facelift to avoid the need for unnecessarily pulling the skin too tight which can create an unnatural appearance. Your skin is then placed back over your face and the incision is sutured. The goal at Wiesman Cosmetic Surgery Institute is to create a natural refreshed you!

After surgery, your face is bandaged. Typically, bandages are removed one to two days after surgery, while the sutures are removed in five to 10 days. Pain medication may be prescribed, and some swelling and bruising should be expected. A cold compress can help to relieve these symptoms. Your face may feel stiff at first, and there may be some skin numbness that can last for several months after surgery. Most Wiesman Institute facelift patients return to normal activities two to three weeks after surgery, looking and feeling younger and more attractive.

FACIAL IMPLANTS IN CHICAGO AND HIGHLAND PARK

The form and aesthetics of your face are largely a function of the position and the prominence of facial bones – most importantly the chin, cheekbones and jaw. A strong jaw and chin, as well as cheekbones that are well proportioned in relation to the rest of your face, can be the key to facial beauty. These areas can all be augmented and sculpted to provide you with a more ideal facial contour.

At the Chicago and Highland Park cosmetic surgery offices of Drs. Gary and Irvin Wiesman, we can enhance your facial structure using an array of facial implants.  The implants are inserted through small incisions inside your mouth, so any scars are completely hidden.

LASER RESURFACING IN CHICAGO AND HIGHLAND PARK

Laser resurfacing is a highly effective method for restoring your skin's youthful appearance. It is used to treat blemishes, wrinkles, discoloration, acne/traumatic scars and sun damage.

Our Chicago and Highland Park offices use both the Erbium Laser and CO2 Pixel Laser. These lasers allow precise and predictable removal of fine layers of skin. Thus, fine layers of sun-damaged and wrinkled skin are stripped away, revealing healthy, smoother, tighter and younger-looking skin. Our patients have been very impressed with the results.

NOSE JOB (RHINOPLASTY) IN CHICAGO, IL

The profile and alignment of your nose have a profound effect on the balance and symmetry of your face. Your nose is, quite literally, the centerpiece of your face. Making adjustments to the shape of your nose can have a surprisingly dramatic effect on the appearance of the rest of your face. Just look at the before-and-after images in our photo gallery to see the kind of results rhinoplasty nose surgery can achieve.

We perform rhinoplasty as an outpatient procedure in the comfort of our Joint Commission-accredited in-office surgical suite. After anesthesia has been administered, your plastic surgeon separates the skin of your nose from the supporting structure of bone and cartilage beneath it. He then sculpts this structure into the shape that you and he agreed upon in your consultation. Your surgeon then drapes the skin back over your new nose and applies a splint to help your nose maintain its new shape. Usually, the whole surgery takes no more than an hour or two.
