Facial Plastic Surgery

Your face tells a story, but shouldn’t determine how you feel inside. Don’t you feel younger than you look? Facial rejuvenation is designed to recall your youth both physically and aesthetically.

Because the face is so delicate, both surgical and non-surgical facial procedures are highly-focused and detail-oriented. Most patients, however, combine several procedures into a single operation. Techniques include: lifting of sagging tissues; restoring soft tissue volume in “deflated” areas, such as the lips or eyelids; removing unpleasant fat collections, such as the enlarging fat collection underneath the jawline; and restoring facial balance by building up a weak bony foundation. Any or all of these techniques may be appropriate on any given patient.

We understand patients’ questions about facial rejuvenation. We’re here to guide you every step of the way. It’s time to look and feel your best.
