You thought you knew everything about facial plastic surgery and cutting-edge aesthetic procedures. And maybe you do! But if you don’t, the following are a few of the lesser-known surgical aesthetic enhancements that I perform for women and men who want to boost their physical appearance as well as their self-confidence. As a double-board certified facial plastic surgeon in New York City who also trained as an artist, my goal is to make you look like the very best version of yourself and increase your Aesthetic Confidence®:

Buccal fat removal

By removing excess buccal (i.e. cheek) fat and tissue, I create a slender lower face that emphasizes and dramatizes your cheekbones. 

The entire outpatient buccal fat removal surgery only takes about an hour and can be done under general or local anesthesia. During this procedure, I make a small incision inside both cheeks, so you won’t have a visible scar. With care and precision, I sculpt away excess fat to create cheeks that are lean and beautifully contoured.

The incisions are then closed with dissolvable sutures. You can return to work or regular activities as soon as the next day.

G.I Jaw®  

before and after photo of a man who underwent the gi jaw procedure in new yorkIf you’re a man, you may envy men like Brad Pitt or even action figures — like G.I. Joe who I named this procedure after — who have that classically sculpted strong jawline. A square, chiseled, defined jaw conveys strength, dominance, and success. While you may not have been born with the bone structure that exudes the kind of confidence you want to present to the world, a G.I. Jaw procedure helps you look as masculine and attractive as you want to be. 

Looking to achieve a strong jawline through a cosmetic procedure has become so popular that according to the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, general plastic surgeries are on the rise. But my patented G.I. Jaw procedure is more than simply inserting a medical-grade jaw implant or building the jaw non-surgically with long-lasting dermal fillers. I may also recommend other changes to create a more masculine appearance, which keeps your new jawline in harmony with your other features. Recommendations may include:

My aim is to create improvements that convey more strength and masculinity, while still looking natural and like yourself.

Inserting medical-grade implants is a minimally invasive procedure that can be done in the office under local anesthesia. You may experience some swelling or discomfort afterward. Generally, most men don’t have discomfort following a nonsurgical G.I. Jaw procedure performed with dermal fillers.

Micro-Rhinoplasty

Do you want to improve the shape of your nose, but the idea of undergoing a full rhinoplasty — which requires breaking the nasal bone and cartilage and a healing period of up to one year — just doesn’t appeal to you? If you only want to remove bumps and lumps on your nose, I can perform a micro-rhinoplasty that requires just one tiny incision in your nostril, no bone breakage, and no significant downtime.

Using specialized tools, I insert a high-tech, air-powered micro-rasp into the incision and gently reshape your nasal bone and cartilage, sculpting away humps and bumps. The end result is a nose that’s straighter, more aesthetically pleasing, and in better harmony with the rest of your facial features.

Unlike traditional rhinoplasty, which is performed under general anesthesia and may take several hours, micro-rhinoplasty is done in my Manhattan office under local anesthesia. The entire procedure only takes about  5-15 minutes. 

Your recovery time is also cut down. You’re swollen for a few days after your procedure but can return to most of your normal (non-strenuous) activities within 1-2 days.
