Facial Plastic Surgery Specialists

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.

Cheek Augmentation

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

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.


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

Ear Pinning Surgery (Otoplasty)

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.

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.

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.

Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

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


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.

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.

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.

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.

Nose Surgery (Rhinoplasty)

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