Areas of Focus

Dr. Jeffrey Kyllo has expertise in all areas of adult cosmetic surgery with a focus in the following areas

Facial Plastic Surgery

A face lift is performed in order to restore a person’s appearance to give a natural and rested look to your face. We use a multi-layer approach to reshape the muscles, skin and connective tissue. Our rejuvenating technique allows the muscles to heal better and more rapidly.

A face lift, also known as rhytidectomy, is the removal of facial wrinkles that result from aging, gravity, exposure to the sun, and the daily stresses of life. This procedure can help make you look younger and fresher, thereby enhancing your self- confidence. It is commonly performed after the age of 40, when skin starts to sag and deep creases may start to appear on cheeks and between the nose and mouth. At this time, you might also notice some folds and fat deposits around the neck, or a double chin forming.

Facelift Procedure

A facelift is generally a fairly lengthy surgical procedure normally performed with a combination of local anesthesia and sedation that takes up to 2 to 5 hours. It typically begins at the temples right above the hairline, following a natural line in front of the ear, and continuing behind the earlobe to the lower scalp. If the neck requires some correction, a small incision may also be made under the chin. To improve the contour, fat may be trimmed from around the neck and chin.

Next is the tightening of the underlying muscle and membrane, and then the skin is pulled up and excess skin removed. After closing the incision, cotton dressing is used to bandage the face and head. This helps to prevent swelling and also to provide good support for 2 to 3 days. Bruising and swelling normally decrease to “socially acceptable levels” within 10 to 20 days. But remember, we all heal differently. Any significant discomfort can be reduced with some pain medication. You can expect some numbness, which normally disappears within a few weeks or months.

Recovery and Final Result

Although a face lift cannot stop the clock of aging, most patients feel that their faces look up to 10 years younger. We use only the most advanced, cutting-edge techniques and technology. These advanced techniques ensure the highest possible quality for all our clients

Transgender Plastic Surgery

Transgender medicine is a growing field that assists those with a diagnosis of gender dysphoria. The recognition and treatment of this condition has become a commonly accepted area of medicine. As part of a patient’s transition, surgical options exist to assist with feelings of gender dysphoria. Some individuals become comfortable with their role and identity without surgery but for others, surgery is an essential aid to alleviate their anxiety. Gender affirming surgery can help to make patients feel more at ease in private and social settings. Studies show that subjective measures of well-being, cosmesis, and sexual function all show benefit to the individual.

A number of procedures are available to this group of patients. Male to female transition can be aided by the performance of breast augmentation and other feminizing procedures. These may include facial surgery such as rhinoplasty, forehead lift, and blepharoplasty. Liposuction, thyroid cartilage reduction, and fat transfer are other procedures that may be contemplated. Genital reassignment surgery is also an option for some. Breast augmentation procedures require only a small incision and the implantation of a breast implant.

Female to male procedures may include “top surgery” which essentially involves a mastectomy and creation of a male chest anatomy. Different procedures exist depending on the size and shape of the breasts. “Keyhole” procedures involve an incision around the edge of the nipple only and are applicable to those with small breasts. “Double incision” operations are required for those with larger breasts and often include reconstructing the nipple with a grafting procedure. Other surgeries that may be of value include liposuction, fat grating, pectoral implants, and facial procedures. Genital surgery may also be an option for select individuals.

All patients are required to have persistent, well-documented gender dysphoria. Pre-operative social transition is also a requirement. Hormone therapy prior to surgery is not required but may be recommended depending on individual circumstances.
