Combining Artistry and Technology

For most of us, it’s self-evident that our physical appearance affects our lives. Looking good, after all, often means feeling good as well. State-of-the-art cosmetic surgery can restore a natural self-confident, radiant image. A low brow, circles under the eyes or a lost neckline often are seen as sadness, anger or poor health. This might help explain why an increasingly greater number of women and men, young and old seek facial enhancement or rejuvenation.

The Clinique of Plastic Surgery, Dr. Christian Drehsen’s newly expanded cosmetic surgery center in Clearwater’s Feathersound, offers the most scientifically advanced procedures available and provides surgical suites on the premises, accredited by the state and the American Association for the Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgical Facilities.

Also available are the new VISA complexion analysis, a full line of superior skin-care products, and ancillary services including non-invasive intense pulsed-light photo-rejuvenation, Synergy, Botox, micro-dermabrasion, and injectable skin fillers, including the new FDA-approved Restylane. With more than five years of results in the United States and Europe, Dr. Drehsen is one of the area’s most experienced Restylane specialists.

Dr. Drehsen has dedicated his career to excellence in cosmetic surgery. He often advises patients to enhance their most attractive features instead of making often-futile attempts at correcting less-desirable ones.

During the past 15 years, Dr. Drehsen has refined his own techniques for facial rejuvenation, which he calls “Refresher Lift” a deeper facelift that hides and minimizes scars and replaced facial volume, allowing the face to recover the fullness of youth. Cosmetic breast surgery continues to be immensely popular, along with a recent increase in tummy tuck popularity. With sophisticated computer imaging, Dr. Drehsen can approximate the patient’s results. “This is the best tool to reduce the fear of miscommunication between the patient and the surgeon,” he says.

“Most people in their 50’s or 60’s don’t want to look 20 or 25 that’s unnatural,” he explains. “You want to look distinguished, dynamic, as if you are aging elegantly. That is when you will not only look your best, but you will psychologically feel your best as well. That is what we want to try and help you achieve.”
