Cosmetic Facial Surgery

Facelift (Rhytidectomy)

In this procedure the muscles and ligaments of the face are repaired beneath the skin and the excess skin is then pulled back and removed. There is typically a scar left behind the ears. Many times an endoscopic brow lift and blepharoplasty are also completed during this procedure.

Nasal Reconstruction (Rhinoplasty)

Cosmetic Surgery of the Eyes (Blepharoplasty, Forehead/Brow Lift)

A blepharoplasty removes either the loose skin on the upper eyelids, the bags and fat under the lower eyelids or all at the same time. A forehead or brow lift can be done by making a large incision, or more commonly, endoscopically.  With the endoscopic brow lift, there are no visible scars.

Chin Surgery (Mentoplasty)

Cheek Implant (Malar Augmentation)

Cheek implants are normally  inserted through the mouth, leaving no scar behind but giving more definition to the patient’s face.

Facial Liposuction

Normally used to remove double chins or bichat (cheek) fat.

Treatment of Facial Wrinkling (Chemical Peel): Local or twilight anesthesia is used and a chemical is placed and left on the skin. Once the chemical is removed, the skin will dry and peel off over the course of the next seven to ten days and patients must avoid exposure to the sun.
Treatment of Facial Scarring (Dermabrasion): Uses a spinning tool to file or sand down deep scars.
