Sometimes a single feature of our face, or the way our facial features correspond, can be a point of self-consciousness. Patients who are interested in undergoing cosmetic treatments to enhance their appearance can rely on Dr. Matthew Mingrone at his San Jose, CA, and San Francisco, CA, practices. At Bay Area Sleep and Breathing Solutions, he has helped many patients look and feel their best. Dr. Mingrone possesses nearly two decades of experience performing eye and nose cosmetic surgeries, and also offers treatments such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers.
Cosmetic Eye Surgery
Our eyes can be our most expressive feature, conveying emotion and personality. The aging processes is not always kind to this area of the face, causing lax eyelids, wrinkles, and bags beneath the eyes. Dr. Mingrone can help create a more vibrant look with an eye lift that repositions the lids and supportive tissues. He can also eliminate the bags which develop under the eyes that contribute to a tired or sad appearance.
Cosmetic Nasal Surgery
Being the central feature of our face, the nose is part and parcel to our facial symmetry. Patients with a hooked, long, or out of proportion nose can rely on Dr. Mingrone for effective cosmetic nasal surgery. Depending on your unique needs, he may remove tissue from the tip of your nose, contour the bridge, or reshape the nostrils to deliver the look and proportions you desire.
We provide safe injectable treatments that allow our patients to reduce signs of aging without the need for surgical procedures. Our injectable options include:
By temporarily smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, BOTOX Cosmetic can create a rejuvenated appearance. The FDA-approved injectable treatment can address imperfections between and at the corners of the eyes, at the base of the nose, and on the forehead. BOTOX Cosmetic can be used alone or with other facial surgery procedures for exceptional results.
Our practice currently offers two dermal fillers to minimize the signs of aging and rejuvenate your facial appearance:
JUVÉDERM® XC: This FDA-approved gel is designed to reduce lines around the nose and mouth. By blending in marionette lines, smile creases, vertical lip lines, and the lines that turn down from your mouth corners, JUVÉDERM® XC can create smoother skin in the area from your nose to your mouth.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC: This product represents the only FDA-approved hyaluronic acid (HA) gel that is specifically formulated for application along your cheeks. Patients can expect improved definition along the cheeks, as well as a lifted position and more youthful volume.
Insurance and Financing
When performed solely as a cosmetic procedure, patients will have to pay out-of-pocket for an eye lift or nasal surgery. Insurance may cover an eye lift if it is deemed medically necessary in the case of collapsing eyelids that impede vision. Similarly, insurance will typically cover the cost of nasal surgery if it is required to repair a deviated septum and improve breathing.
At Bay Area Sleep and Breathing Solutions, we are ready to help you look and feel your best.
Regardless of which procedure you choose, our staff will work diligently to utilize any applicable insurance. We also accept financing to fit procedures into our patients’ budgets.
