Dr. Julian Dixon is committed to the use of natural biologic products in facial cosmetic surgery. Natural products such as fat and Hyaluronic Acid fillers have a proven track record of safety and efficacy. Patients’ faces are constantly changing due to the dynamic process of aging, and the use of malleable natural products can be easily augmented as the face changes and the aging process continues. This ensures a long lasting natural look and allows people to modify their aesthetic goals as time evolves.
Rhinoplasty is one of the most frequently performed cosmetic procedures for people of all ages, ethnicities and genders. The size and shape of the nose can distract from an attractive face as well as negatively impact breathing.
During the preoperative consultation, photographic images will be taken with the latest technology to help you decide on the desired cosmetic outcome.

Facial Rejuvenation: Non Surgical Options
For most, the aging process results in a loss of fullness in your face particularly in the cheeks and around the eyes. You may experience jowls forming due to a sagging jaw-line and/or a hanging neck. Dr. Dixon is committed to helping you achieve a natural result that leaves you looking refreshed and healthy... without the "surgical look".
BOTOX® and DYSPORT™
Muscle relaxants used to treat wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes, forehead and frown lines. It is applied using an ultra thin needle to give a few tiny injections into the offending muscles, wrinkles or creases until they are smoothed out. Typically, results last 4-6 months.
Restylane® and JUVÉDERM®
Injectable fillers are safe, reliable and effective in treating wrinkles. The areas most commonly treated are smile lines, the nasiolabial folds, lips, and the jawline. We also use them restore volume in the jaw line, and to fill the hollows under the eyes.
Eyelid Surgery (Blepharopasty)- This is a procedure to remove skin-- usually along with excess fat from the upper and lower eyelids. Often this procedure can be performed in the office with local anesthesia and a very light sedation.
Facial Fat Grafting- This is a procedure when fat is removed from your abdomen, thigh, or buttock. The fat tissue is then processed sterilly for transplantation into the areas of the face that require volumizing.
Face Lift (Rhytidectomy)- This procedure is performed when you want to surgically refresh your face using well hidden incisions along the ear and hairline. The muscles of the neck are suspended to recreate a more youthful contour. Dr. Dixon's techniques allow for no drains to be placed for faster recovery.
Neck Lift: During this procedure a small incision under the chin allows fat to be removed either by liposuction or surgical sculpting. Recovery time is typically only a few days. This is a short same day procedure.
Scar Revision: Unslightly scars from accidents or even previous surgeries can have a negative impact on your self confidence, and can even be painful. Most scar revisions can be performed in the office under local anesthetic.
