Our face often makes our first impression; current Facial Plastic Surgery techniques favor a more natural appearing outcome than years ago. The impression of appearing tired can be eliminated using today’s newest surgical procedures. Please click on a procedure listed below to read its description.
Facelift or Rhytidectomy
Our face changes as we age, our skin loses its’ elasticity and begins to fold in several locations. This loss of “snap” is secondary to sun damage, emotional stress, large weight gains or losses, smoking and any health related problems.

A neck lift is comparable to a facelift; however, the neck can often be improved with smaller, less invasive procedures, or liposuction alone. Such smaller procedures can involve suspending the neck tissues in the midline of the neck leaving an inconspicuous scar within the skin crease underneath the chin.

Age is often deduced from the appearance of our eyes. These “windows into our souls” can give a tired, run-down impression. Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is designed to remove excess skin and fat from the upper and lower eyelids.

Rhinoplasty or Nose job
The nose is the most prominent feature on the human face. This is why the nose can be a source of angst for those made uncomfortable by a large, or poorly shaped nose. Rhinoplasty can be designed to reduce the nasal tip, narrow the width, straighten a curve, flatten a bump, or raise the profile. These procedures are always individualized to meet each patient’s needs and expectations. All nose jobs are performed through predominantly internal incisions. Healing of these incisions is rapid and swelling can be limited with medications.

Chin augmentation is the use of synthetic implants to increase the size and prominence of this facial feature. It can give balance to an otherwise less defined face or further enhance your chin structure. Chin augmentation is frequently performed in conjunction with rhinoplasty in order to provide an improved aesthetic balance to your face.

Otoplasty corrects protruding ears. An incision is made in the natural crease behind the ear and the cartilage is weakened, allowing the flexibility to bend the ear into a new shape. The cartilage is then sutured into this new position, holding the ear in place. This procedure can be performed in adults as well as children.

Scar revision is performed to reduce the appearance of scars caused by injury or previous surgery. While scars are permanent by definition, surgery can narrow, fade and otherwise reduce the appearance of severe or unattractive scarring, which is especially helpful in areas of cosmetic importance such as the face and hands.
There are many surgical methods of scar revision, only some of which may be appropriate for a particular type of scar or its location. These include surgical excision, skin grafts, flap surgery and Z-plasty (repositioning a scar so that it aligns with the facial lines and is less noticeable). The effectiveness of scar reduction depends on a number of factors, including the nature of the injury, your body’s healing potential, the size and depth of the wound, and how much blood supplies the area.

Also called micro-lipoinjection or autologous fat transfer, fat injection involves the removal and relocation of the patient’s own body fat to plump up an area. Most commonly this procedure is combined with face-lifting and other facial rejuvenation procedures to further replace what has been lost over the years. Fat is removed through liposuction, often from the abdomen, buttocks or thighs. It is then processed and injected into the area being treated.
The procedure is also commonly performed as an isolated lunch time procedure for lip augmentation as well as laugh line reduction. Because the transplanted fat comes from the patient, it does not carry a risk of allergic reaction. Other advantages include a short recovery time, long-lasting results and effectiveness on any skin type.
