Plastic surgery procedures aren’t purely cosmetic; they range from aesthetic treatments to procedures that rebuild bodily structures that have been compromised by trauma, disease, or surgery. Regardless of what plastic surgery procedures you need, Dr. Hershcovitch will deliver the same outstanding level of care, professionalism, and meticulous planning.
By believing that each patient’s safety is of paramount importance, Dr. Hershcovitch ensures that every patient receives proper care and achieves natural outcomes. But his reputation goes beyond his plastic surgery procedures; he’s also known in the Burbank community for his outstanding, compassionate patient care.
Are you considering undergoing a plastic surgery procedure? Physically, the ideal candidate should be in relatively good health; that means no major, untreated conditions (like cardiovascular disease). Emotionally, the patient should have reasonable expectations about what plastic surgery procedures can do for them. Patients should also have a reliable network support, like friends or family, that can help them through their recovery. The ideal candidate is a non-smoker, but patients that smoke should be able to stop smoking a few weeks before and after their procedure.
Your recovery will vary depending on what kind of plastic surgery procedure you undergo and how much work was done. And like all surgical procedures, cosmetic or not, there will be a brief period where the patient will need to emotionally adjust to their recovery. In the end, advancements in surgical techniques have vastly improved recovery periods, so many of our patients report their recovery as being rather tolerable. Of course, patients will be prescribed pain medication if they need it.
Surgical Facial Procedures
For his facelifts, Dr. Hershcovitch believes in giving his patients a natural look within the context of safety. A facelift by Dr. Hershcovitch can help a patient attain a younger, smoother, sleeker look; it can lift the jowls, tighten sagging cheeks, as well as smooth out loose skin on the neck. Dr. Hershcovitch will personalize each lift to fit the patient’s individual needs so that they get rejuvenation that looks natural and lasts for a long time.
Dr. Hershcovitch specializes in the mini facelift, an incredible alternative to the traditional facelift procedure. A mini facelift creates shorter incisions, results in a shorter recovery, and can be performed under local anesthesia in our medical office. Patients with minimal facial sagging are excellent candidates for the mini lift.
Plastic surgery procedures have evolved rapidly through the years, and skilled facial plastic surgeons like Dr. Hershcovitch have developed incredible techniques that can fix the compromised results of inadequate lifts. Dr. Hershcovitch himself has extensive experience with facelift revision; his studies on facelift revision have been published in renowned scientific journals and he’s written entire chapters on the subject.
Regardless of what caused them, facial deformities can cause an inordinate amount of damage to a person’s image, self-esteem, and sense of character. As a board-certified otolaryngologist and a fellowship-trained board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Hershcovitch has the training and expertise to repair facial deformities caused by skin cancer, trauma, or surgery.
Also known as a nose job, rhinoplasty is widely considered to be one of the most complicated plastic surgery procedures available. Dr. Hershcovitch is known for marrying structure and function; he ensures the nose looks perfectly balanced with the patient’s facial features while ensuring that it’s functioning as well as possible. His goal is to create a subtle, natural change that looks right for the patient.
Not all surgeons have the training and experience to create lasting, natural nose surgery. Revision rhinoplasty is a plastic surgery procedure that fixes compromised rhinoplasty results. Dr. Hershcovitch repairs structural and aesthetic issues while ensuring the results can withstand the tests of time.
Functional rhinoplasty is a plastic surgery procedure that focuses on fixing structural problems in the nose likea deviated septum, collapsed nasal valves, nasal polyp removal, and more. Of course, Dr. Hershcovitch strives to improve the patient’s breathing while ensuring natural, balanced results.
Heavy, drooping eyelids can often create the appearance of exhaustion or sickness. Of course, some patients have simply aged or are genetically predisposed to have drooping or puffy eyelids. To patients that want to look brighter and more refreshed, Dr. Hershcovitch offers blepharoplasty, a plastic surgery procedure that tightens and lifts drooping, puffy eyelids.
Substantial sagging in the forehead and the eyebrows can lead to a heavily drooping brow. A drooping brow can also obscure a patient’s vision. For patients that want to rejuvenate the upper areas of the face, Dr. Hershcovitch offers the brow lift, a plastic surgery procedure that smooths the forehead as well lifting the brows for a brighter, more revitalized look.
