You look in the mirror many times every day, even if you’d rather not. Your medicine cabinet in the morning, the rear-view mirror as you get in the car, even the mirrors in public restrooms reflect your face as you wash your hands. And if you don’t like what you see, it can seriously impact your self-confidence and self-image. Perhaps you have always felt uncomfortable about a certain feature or features of your face. Or perhaps you used to be very happy with your appearance, but age has taken its toll on your features, and you are now less happy than you used to be. In either case, plastic surgery may be able to help you feel better about your appearance and yourself.

Facial Rejuvenation

If your face betrays your age, or, worse, makes you look older than you are, facial rejuvenation can take many years off your appearance to help you regain your more youthful, attractive look.

Facelift is a procedure that addresses loose, hanging skin and other tissues in the face to provide long-lasting rejuvenation over much or all of the face, especially the lower two-thirds of the face, including the neck. There are many different variations on the facelift procedure available, and they’re all detailed on our main facelift page.

Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, battles the tired, sagging appearance our eyes can get with age. The result is a refreshed, more youthful appearance. If people assume you are tired, sad, or angry even when you are feeling energetic and happy, eyelid surgery may be a good option for you.

Forehead lift, also known as a brow lift, is a procedure that lifts sagging brows and reduces deep furrows in the forehead region. It is a popular complement to eyelid surgery, and for some patients neither procedure gives optimal results without the other.

Facial Reshaping

If you have long disliked your nose, ears, cheeks, chin, or other features, plastic surgery may be able to help you improve their appearance so that you feel self-confident, not self-conscious. You can stop hiding your face behind hair or under hats and show your face proudly and happily.

Rhinoplasty, also called a nose job or simply nose surgery, is a procedure that reshapes your nose to improve its appearance. If your nose is too large, long, wide, or has a bump, hump, or crooked bridge, rhinoplasty can help. It can also improve some functional defects in the nose.

Otoplasty, also known as ear reshaping or ear pinning, is a procedure that reshapes the ears. It can be used for ears with a congenital deformity, that stick out too far from the head.

Cheek and chin augmentation uses facial implants to reshape the face. If you have a receding chin or cheek bones with insufficient definition it can throw off the proportion of your face, making your nose look bigger, or making you look more masculine or feminine than you desire.

Sometimes, facial reshaping procedures are best performed in combination. In particular, rhinoplasty and chin augmentation can be very good complements to one another.

Other Facial Procedures

Sometimes optimal rejuvenation is best achieved using not only surgery, but some complementary procedures as well. Facial liposuction can help people with significant fat deposits in the face or neck area.

For many people BOTOX® and Dysport injections give great results, reducing forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, and lipstick lines. Dermal fillers can be used to restore youthful fullness to the face and fill in some deep folds, like parenthesis lines around the mouth, also called nasolabial folds. We can also use a procedure called fat grafting to use your own fat to restore and enhance your facial contours.

Laser skin resurfacing or chemical peels are other popular procedures that improve facial rejuvenation. They address fine wrinkles and discolorations that give the skin an aged or “crepey“ appearance.

FaceTite is an incredibly effective facial skin rejuvenation treatment that utilizes bi-polar RF energy. The treatment melts fat and tightens skin in order to provide the desired aesthetic improvements in the face and neck.

In Autologous Fat Transfer, fat is removed from parts of your body where you do not want it, such as the hips, thighs, or tummy, and is placed where you do want it, to replace volume lost in the face.
