Face

 Brow Lift

The brow lift is a minimally invasive surgery that is used to rejuvenate the area above the eyes. The brows provide a frame for the eyes, so it is essential that they play their intended supporting role in your facial appearance.

 Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty is a commonly performed procedure to remove sagging skin or small fat deposits above and below the eyes.

 Cheek Augmentation

During cheek augmentation, the volume of the cheeks is increased through the use of injectable fillers such as Radiesse®, Juvederm®, Restylane®, or Sculptra® into the cheek area, or through a facelift in which a surgeon repositions and tightens the underlying tissue.

 Facelift

A facelift is one of the most frequently performed facial surgeries that can correct advanced aging, either brought on by time or exposure to the elements. The process removes excess fat and tightens the underlying tissues, redraping the skin of the lower face and neck to restore youth and vibrancy.

 Chin Surgery

Chin surgery is used to alter the shape of the chin by either inserting alloplastic implants (silicone rubber, Goretex, Teflon, Acrylic, etc) or by moving the bone of the chin.

 Facial Fat Transfer

Although many dermal fillers can be used to fill sunken areas of the face from scars to deep wrinkles, plastic surgeons can also employ facial fat grafting techniques to treat some age-related depressions in the facial tissue.

 Dermabrasion

An innovative non-surgical skin refinishing technique, dermabrasion is known for its effectiveness in achieving smoother skin as a spot treatment for unwanted blemishes, or as a more thorough refinishing procedure to remove textural irregularities.

 Nose Surgery

Advanced nose surgery (rhinoplasty) techniques can help patients realize a facial profile that is more symmetrical and aesthetically pleasing.

 Ear Surgery

Otoplasty is also known as ear pinning surgery, or pinnaplasty. The procedure is performed in order to reshape prominent ears, most often in children ages 4-14 with fully developed ears, although the surgery can treat adults as well.

 Neck Liposuction

For some individuals, the neck is a trouble spot; fat collects here resulting in a double chin or heavy jowls. During neck liposuction, the excess fat that detracts from facial angularity is removed in order to restore the youthful appearance of the neck.

 Earlobe Repair

Earlobe repair surgery is used to address torn or stretched earlobes, injuries that are often caused by the use of heavy, dangling earrings.

 Neck Lift

With the neck lift, it is possible to improve definition in the neck by removing the excess skin and tightening the underlying tissue, or by removing or altering the neck muscles.

 Endoscopic Brow Lift

Individuals who are bothered with sagging skin in the brow region may elect to undergo endoscopic brow lift surgery in order to rejuvenate the area and achieve a more youthful appearance.
