When you look in the mirror, are you pleased with what you see? Or do you appear to be more tired or just older than you still feel inside? Do you feel that your daily skin care regimen can't keep up with facial aging? Do you often find yourself pulling on your facial skin in the mirror to see what smoother eyelids, a tighter neckline, or the absence of jowls might look like? If so, perhaps it is time for you to consider facial plastic surgery in Chicago.

Meet Dr. Steinwald

Paul M. Steinwald, M.D. is one of the few plastic surgeons in Chicago who is double-board certified in both plastic and general surgery. Read On

  • Facelift and Neck Lift – Dr. Steinwald performs one of the most comprehensive, long-lasting facelifts, utilizing a combination of sophisticated techniques he learned personally from some of the top surgeons in San Francisco (and therefore calls this approach "The San Francisco Facelift"). For patients with less severe neck skin laxity, a "mini-facelift" approach may be used, featuring shorter scars, and a quicker recovery.
  • Brow Lift – Generally performed subcutaneously (but also able to be performed endoscopically), this procedure generally repositions and elevates the brow, elevates the eyebrows (especially laterally, to enhance the "arch"), can diminish "hooding" of heavy upper eyelids, and helps reduce the effect of muscles that cause brow folds or wrinkles.
  • Blepharoplasty – This outpatient procedure rejuvenates the eyelids (one of the first places a person shows signs of aging) by trimming away excess skin and fatty fullness, leaving the patient with a more refreshed, rested look.
  • Ear Surgery – Ear pinning or reshaping (also called "otoplasty) involves trimming cartilage (usually from the back of the ear) and/or placing special sutures to hold the cartilage in a more aesthetically pleasing shape and position.
  • Rhinoplasty – People of all ages seek rhinoplasty, which can involve both functional improvement (submucous resection of the septum, or SMR – often covered by insurance), and/or improvement in the appearance of the nose, via resetting of the dorsal framework or trimming/reshaping of the cartilage of the nasal tip area.

Dr. Paul Steinwald has skill and extensive experience in many types of facial rejuvenation procedures, each performed to optimize surgical results and minimize recovery time. He places patient comfort and safety as top priorities with every Chicago facial plastic surgery procedure he performs. With an array of sophisticated surgical techniques at his disposal – many of which he learned personally from experts in San Francisco – Dr. Steinwald can address and largely reverse many moderate to advanced signs of aging in the brow, eyelid, lower face, chin and neck areas, or reshape prominent features of the nose or ears.
