Whether you're fighting natural wrinkles from age or unhappy with a specific feature, waking up and looking in the mirror can be frustrating. It's hard to ignore the features you wish you could change.
Sure, you can get Botox and fillers to reduce wrinkles and help reshape features, but they won't give you the long-term transformative results you're looking for. Luckily, there have been impressive advancements in plastic surgery resulting in procedures that can rejuvenate your face and boost your confidence.

Over time, constant sun exposure, gravity, and life’s daily stresses begin to take their toll and become more visible on the face than ever before. Deep creases start to form on both sides of the mouth, forehead lines no longer allow certain facial expressions to become visible, and crows feet on the sides of your eyes become more defined than ever before. With our faces being the focal point of our overall appearance, deeper wrinkles can limit our overall confidence and appearance.
Technically known as rhytidectomy (the "removal of wrinkles"), facelifts rejuvenate the mid- to-lower face in order to counteract visible signs of aging and dramatically improve the patient's appearance and overall confidence.
Facelift surgeries are outpatient procedures and are performed in our fully accredited office-based surgical facility, typically while the patient is completely asleep under general anesthesia. Patients have a choice of local anesthesia, where you are awake, IV sedation or general anesthesia - all administered by a board-certified physician's anesthesiologist. Most facelift surgeries are performed over an average of 1-2 hours.
Neck lifts and mini facelifts serve as alternative options for patients who desire a less-dramatic and youthful appearance through a simpler, less-invasive procedure.
Typically performed in half the time of a traditional facelift with less bruising and quicker recovery time, these alternatives allow for a more targeted surgical approach for patients wishing to remove and enhance a smaller, more specific area of their face and neck. This surgery begins with an S-shaped incision to the front of the ear, typically by the hairline and natural creases of the face. The skin of the jowls and neck are then lifted up and pulled back, followed by the removal of any remaining skin and fat.
Though mini facelifts and neck lifts involve similar steps as traditional facelifts, the main difference is that these procedures target only the lower two-thirds of the face. This region is often the first and most likely to be affected by signs of aging.
Because of these particular limiting factors, patients receiving a neck lift or mini facelift often opt for surgery to be performed in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures, such as laser skin resurfacing or an eye lift.
Cosmetic nose surgery (rhinoplasty) is one of the most frequently performed plastic surgery procedures to reshape the nose for an improved size and shape. In addition to enhancing your appearance, rhinoplasty can further enhance the overall profile of your face, as well as help improve your breathing.
The best rhinoplasty results are achieved when going through a full cosmetic nose surgery evaluation and consultation with your plastic surgeon to fully inform yourself of the procedure and know exactly what to expect.
When meeting with your surgeon prior to the procedure, the doctor will examine the structure of your nose, both externally and internally, to properly evaluate nose function and form before proceeding with specific recommendations that will suit you best. Photographs will be taken, and through state-of-the-art imaging technology, preoperative planning will be done with the patient to ensure optimal results.
Skin thickness, bone structure, breathing difficulties and ethnic background are important factors to take into account to discuss with your surgeon prior to treatment. Because of the interrelated nature of the nose and face, many patients with weak chins also choose to have a chin augmentation in conjunction with rhinoplasty in order to create a better balance of facial features.
Browplasty, also called a brow lift or forehead lift, removes excess sagging skin on the forehead and repositions the underlying muscles and tissues. A brow lift can correct a heavy, sagging brow and restore a smoother, more youthful contour to the upper-third of the face. It also provides rejuvenation to the skin above the eyes to restore a more refreshed appearance.
Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) is a procedure that corrects tired looking, sagging and drooping eyelids. Since the skin on the eyelid is much thinner, it is often one of the first facial areas to exhibit signs of aging. This procedure become necessary when various factors like sun damage, smoking and obesity cause the muscles and tissue that support the eyelids to weaken.
For cosmetic purposes, a blepharoplasty can be performed on either the upper eyelid, lower eyelid, or both. If a lower eyelid needs fat rather than skin removed, a transconjunctival blepharoplasty can be performed. During this procedure, an incision is made inside the lower eyelid; the fat is then removed, resulting in a younger and more refreshed look with no visible scars.
It is important for patients to have realistic expectations before undergoing cosmetic blepharoplasty. Although the procedure can enhance appearance and improve self-confidence, it does not and will not radically alter the face.
If the eyelids begin to sag and affect the field of vision, a functional blepharoplasty procedure might be required. If it is decided that the procedure is medically necessary, a functional blepharoplasty could be covered by health insurance.
Otoplasty (ear surgery) is a cosmetic procedure used to improve the appearance of the ears. Most often, otoplasty is performed to correct and reshape ears that are significantly protruding outward from the edge of the face.
While otoplasty does not affect internal hearing quality or improve related audio difficulties, it does provide significant benefits to anyone who may be self-conscious of their ears and seeks to fix the size and shape.
People of any age who feel self-conscious or embarrassed of their ears are all great candidates for otoplasty, though the surgery is usually performed on children between the ages of 5 and 14.
Otoplasty generally takes about one hour and can be done under either general anesthesia, IV sedation or local anesthesia.
Otoplasty begins with a small incision made behind the ear, within the natural crease of where the ear meets the head. The ear’s cartilage is then reworked, sculpted and shaped to achieve the patient’s desired appearance. Results are immediate and permanent.
A well-defined chin helps give balance and structure to your face and serves as a major part of your profile and overall appearance. Mentoplasty (chin surgery) is a cosmetic surgery procedure that reshapes the chin either by enhancing or reducing the size. This procedure can help balance the features on your face and create a more appealing facial profile.
Mentoplasty to augment and reshape the chin takes approximately 45 minutes to an hour to perform, under either local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia. During the procedure, an incision is made inside the mouth in order to eliminate visible scarring. A pocket is then created for the implant, which is inserted, placed and positioned. For someone desiring a more permanent correction to their chin, a surgical implant can also be incorporated. After surgery, patients can return home the same day.
Chin augmentation is an enhancement surgery to the chin that can be accomplished through facial implants or injections to enlarge and define the area. Thanks to injectable fillers, patients can achieve instantaneous chin enhancement results. Although not permanent, they have the advantage of being adjusted if need be. For someone who desires a more permanent correction, a surgical implant can be used.
A chin reduction minimizes the size of the chin by reshaping the bone and structural tissue to create a smaller, natural looking chin.
Today, most cheek augmentation procedures are done with injectable fillers. Since they are not permanent, they can be adjusted if the patient is not happy with the results. For a more permanent correction, a cheek augmentation using surgical cheek implants is an option.
The ideal candidate for cheek enhancement is anyone who wants to restore fullness to their cheeks.
Threadlift facial procedures lift the skin back to its original position, giving a true age-reversing effect. While technology has made tremendous advancements in cosmetic surgery, the missing treatment desired by many was known as a non-surgical solution for lifting the deeper layers of skin. Though skin tightening treatments like Thermage firm and tighten the skin, patients still want an extra boost to lift their skin, plus re-contour their face and neck area.
Silhouette Instalift (Silhouette) and Novathread. Both procedures are safe and effective with very little downtime - perfect for those who wish to achieve immediate lifting of their face without surgery. Both procedures provide excellent results for men and women between the ages of 35 and 70.
While fillers are used to plump up the skin, in some instances patients needed a lift without the added volume from fillers. Plus, one thread treatment immediately lifts sagging skin and keeps on working long past the initial treatment with a double-action effect that restores smoother and more toned skin over time.
