Face

  • Chin implants can increase the size and projection of a chin that does not project in proportion with the forehead and mid-face. An implant can be used to correct a small or recessed chin often called a “weak chin”.

  • Dysport®, the newer, better Botox®

    Laughing, smiling, frowning and squinting are things you do every single day. These actions are natural facial expressions that represent your moods and feelings and seem harmless enough – until they contribute to the formation of lines and wrinkles on your face.

    To resolve this situation, minimally invasive injectable solutions can work as muscle relaxants and prevent the muscles of the face that allow you to make facial expressions from contracting, leaving the skin wrinkle-free and you with a more youthful appearance.

    We offer patients an array of minimally invasive treatment options to help reduce and/or prevent the appearance of things such as wrinkles, fine lines and creases.

    One of these treatments is Dysport, an FDA-approved form of the neurotoxin Botulinum toxin type A (think Botox) injected into the face to temporarily reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles.

  • Ear

    Ladies, do you consistently wear your hair down? Or guys, do you tuck your ears in hats? Did you notice that your ears were pulled forward or appeared more prominent while wearing a protective facial covering during the pandemic? Or are you concerned about your child’s ears sticking out? Prominent ears can be a serious problem for many patients, both adults and children, and evoke feelings of upset or self-consciousness over one’s appearance. It can also be a source of teasing from peers. 

    But there’s a solution for prominent ears: ear-pinning surgery. The procedure, also known as otoplasty, can correct large ears or ears that stick out. 

    Dr. Jack Peterson is a dual-board-certified otolaryngologist (ENT) and plastic surgeon and offers patients the otoplasty procedure for individuals who have large ears or ears that stick out. 

  • Dr. Peterson performs cosmetic eyelid surgery frequently. Eyelid surgery is a common first cosmetic facial surgery. The eyes are our most revealing facial feature. Hereditary factors and the signs of aging can greatly impact the appearance of our eyes and thus our facial aging. Cosmetic eyelid surgery, technically called blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure that will reveal a more youthful and energetic appearance to the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both.

  • Do you ever want to turn back the hands of time and erase the signs of aging and excess skin in your face and neck? 

    If you’ve answered yes, then face-lift surgery may be an ideal treatment option for you in the fight against visible signs of aging.
     
    The face-lift is a surgical cosmetic procedure that can help reduce the signs of aging in the face by targeting and tightening sagging facial tissues or wrinkled skin, leaving you with a more youthful appearance. 
     
    Dr. Jack Peterson is a dual-board-certified plastic surgeon specializing in cosmetic facial procedures and has the advanced anatomical knowledge and skill needed to leave you with beautiful, natural-looking results. 

  • Dr. Peterson commonly performs forehead lift or brow lift surgery for patients wanting a more youthful look in the upper face exceeding what can be accomplished with BOTOX®. Brow lift surgery can correct a brow ptosis, or a condition where the eyebrow droops or sags. Also known as a browplasty, this plastic surgery procedure can elevate a drooping eyebrow that may obstruct vision and/or remove the deep worry lines that run across the forehead. This condition can make you look angry, stern, hostile, or tired. When Dr. Peterson raises the brow, it improves the upper field of vision and can correct visual impairment.

  • Rhinoplasty, also commonly known as a “nose job,” is a plastic surgery procedure that changes the nose’s structure or improves its appearance. 

    The rhinoplasty procedure is one of the most requested plastic surgery procedures in the United States, with more than 200,000 nose-reshaping surgeries performed each year. 

    As a dual board-certified otolaryngologist (ear, nose and throat specialist) and plastic surgeon, Dr. Peterson is very experienced in performing rhinoplasty surgery.

    Why is it so common? One reason is that the nose is a very prominent facial feature. So, flaws like bumps, hooks, humps or other deformations can be noticeable — and can make you feel self-conscious. 

  • Approximately one in 700 newborns has a congenital cleft lip and/or palate deformity, negatively impacting feeding, speech and even social development. 

    Dr. Jack Peterson is the team director of the Topeka Cleft Lip and Palate Team. This team is a recognized member of the American Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Association. The team’s goal is to ensure that a patient’s medical, developmental, dental and psychological needs are treated in a coordinated and consistent manner from birth to age 18.
