There are many reasons why a person might need facial surgery. Some people cannot see or breathe properly without eyelid surgery or rhinoplasty, respectively. Some people require facial reconstruction due to skin cancer or a trauma they experienced. Others seek the confidence that facial surgery can provide, whether it be from a mole removal, scar revision or other cosmetic procedures like a rhytidectomy (facelift).
As a facial plastic surgeon and board-certified otolaryngologist – an ear, nose and throat (ENT) specialist – Dr. Zachary Zimmerman does all of this and more at Beloit Health System’s NorthPointe Health and Wellness Campus, 5605 E. Rockton Road, Roscoe, Ill., and at Beloit Clinic, 1905 E. Huebbe Pkwy, Beloit.
In addition to performing general ENT surgeries, he offers a full range of facial cosmetic procedures.
“I was hired so people wouldn’t have to travel to Madison, Milwaukee or Chicago for their surgeries,” Zimmerman says. “People in Beloit are very loyal to the health system. They don’t want to leave – they want to stay here for their care.”
Patients don’t always need a functional or medical reason to seek treatment from Zimmerman. Oftentimes, facial plastic surgery is about helping patients both cosmetically and emotionally, he says.
“It helps patients live their best lives, especially in their golden years,” he says. “Some people are really bothered by a mole on their face, or a scar they have from an accident, and being able to restore that confidence in people is what made me want to be a facial plastic surgeon. It allows people to forget their past catastrophic injuries or trauma.”
Cosmetic procedures may include brow lifts, upper and lower eyelid surgery, rhinoplasty, scar or mole removal, face or neck lifts and more.
