This procedure is done to remove the loose skin and excess fat of the lower face and neck. Facelift surgery also provides a tighter neck angle and reduces the appearance of jowls. Facelift can be done in combination with other aesthetic procedures. Using cosmetic incisions around the ear, the deep tissue of the neck and lower face are drawn up and back to recreate a more youthful neck line. This surgery is performed under general anesthesia and requires 10-14 days of healing downtime. >>Facelift Gallery
Similar to the facelift procedure, Necklift or ‘Minilift’ is appropriate for select patients who have minimal redundancy of the neck skin and fat. >>Necklift/Minilift Gallery
Liposuction of the neck removes fat through 3 small incisions. Patients with minimal neck skin redundancy may be candidates for this procedure.
Liposculpture uses your own belly fat to provide volume to areas of your face that have been depleted by aging and sun damage.
Eyebrow Lift (Browlift)
With aging, the eyebrows often sag giving a tired appearance to the eyes. An endoscopic browlift uses telescopes through small incisions in the hairline to elevate the eyebrows to a more youthful position. >>Browlift Gallery
Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Tuck)
Blepharoplasty is among the most common cosmetic procedures performed in the United States. Using incisions hidden in eyelid creases, this procedure removes excess fat and skin from the upper and lower eyelids. Patients will typically take 1 week off of work after Blepharoplasty surgery.
Ear Correction (Otoplasty)
Otoplasty is performed to correct protruding ears. This can be done at any age, but is often done before elementary school to prevent teasing. Incisions are made behind the ear and take about 1 week to heal.
Rhinoplasty (Nose Surgery)
Rhinoplasty is surgery done to correct the form and function of the nose. Our surgeons perform over 300 rhinoplasty surgeries each year. Many different attributes of the nose can be corrected. Obtaining beautiful nasal contours while maintaining excellent breathing is our mantra when performing rhinoplasty surgery. >>Rhinoplasty Gallery
Facial Implants (Cheek/Chin/Temple)
Implants can make a dramatic impact on the harmony and balance of different areas of the face. Modern implants are customizable and entirely safe.
Though scars can never be erased, they can be dramatically improved. The best results for scars are achieved by using multiple modalities. This could include laser treatments, surgical procedures, steroid injections, dermabrasion and other treatments. >>Scar Revision Gallery
Removal of Skin Lesions (moles, warts, etc.)
Skin lesions can be removed with the intention to minimize the final scar. Often, these lesions can be removed without a scar at all! Most often the Lux2940 laser is used to help completely clear up the abnormal cells.
Ear Lobe Repair
Torn earlobes are very common and occur when earrings get pulled through the skin. Earlobes may also be stretched when gauges are used. Either of these issues can be corrected in a short procedure that is performed in the clinic. The earlobes can also be reduced in size in a similar procedure.
