Facial Plastic Surgery Procedures
Also known as nasal surgery or a nose job, rhinoplasty is a plastic surgery procedure which can improve the appearance and/or function of the nose. Common cosmetic changes requested include a reduction in size, removal of a hump, fixing a bulbous tip and narrowing wide nostrils.

The facelift, or rhytidectomy as it is technically known, can restore a more youthful appearance to the lower face and neck by tightening the underlying tissues and removing excess fat and skin.

The necklift addresses loose sagging skin in the neck and jawline. It can improve jowls and the appearance of a “turkey neck”. Excess skin and fat are removed and the underlying muscles are tightened.

The forehead lift, also known as a brow lift, is a great alternative to Botox injections for people seeking more improvement. The browlift improves a drooping or heavy brow which may cause hooding of the eyelids, as well as deep forehead wrinkles and grooves.

Also known as blepharoplasty, eyelid surgery can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both to restore a more youthful and rested appearance. Eyelid surgery specifically treats sagging upper eyelids and under-eye bags.

Chin augmentation involves the use of a synthetic implant which is inserted over the jawbone. Chin augmentation can add more prominence to a weak chin and help to balance out the other facial features for a more harmonious overall facial appearance.

With cheek augmentation, implants are inserted in the cheek area to add prominence or restore more fullness. This is a great procedure for those seeking the appearance of high cheekbones or whose cheeks have lost fullness with age.

Ethnic rhinoplasty refers to rhinoplasty performed on patients of ethnicity, including those of African American, Asian, Hispanic, and Middle Eastern descent. The goal of ethnic rhinoplasty is generally to improve the appearance of the nose but still preserve the sense of ethnic identity.

MicroRhinoplasty™ is a new technique in rhinoplasty which allows the nasal hump to be reduced without needing to break the nose. This simple, quick procedure can be performed in the office setting with just local anesthesia using a specialized air-powered micro-saw.

Buccal Fat Excision
Buccal fat excision is a procedure in which the fat pads in the cheeks can be removed to create a slimmer, more refined appearance in those with extra fullness in the cheeks. Patients who seek this procedure often complain of having “chipmunk cheeks."

Otoplasty, or ear surgery, improves the appearance of large or protruding ears. This procedure is commonly performed on children as it can greatly benefit their self-esteem.

Reconstructive surgery refers to plastic surgery procedures which improve function and sometimes approximate a normal appearance. Reconstructive techniques include such techniques as the repair of facial fractures, improving scars or blemishes, and closing defects caused by tumor surgery.

Scar reduction improves the appearance of unsightly scars. While scars can never be completely removed, they can be greatly improved upon. A variety of procedures may be used including needling, dermabrasion, and laser resurfacing.
