Natural Looks Through Natural Products
Our 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. Natural products such as fat and hyaluronic acid fillers have a proven track record of safety and results. To ensure a long-lasting natural look, our doctors are committed to the use of natural biologic products in facial cosmetic surgery, which also allows people to modify their aesthetic goals as time passes.
The size and shape of the nose can distract from an attractive face as well as negatively impact breathing. That is why rhinoplasty (cosmetic nose surgery) is one of the most frequently performed cosmetic procedures for people of all ages, ethnicities, and genders.
During the preoperative consultation, photographic images will be taken with the latest technology to help you decide on the desired cosmetic outcome.
Post-operatively a dressing is applied. NASAL PACKING IS NOT NECESSARY. Recovery time will be made as comfortable as possible. The dressing will be removed within about a week, at which time most patients can also return to work and normal activities.

Facial Rejuvenation: Beauty Without Surgery
For most, the aging process results in a loss of fullness in your face, particularly in the cheeks and around the eyes. You may notice jowls forming due to a sagging jawline and/or a hanging neck. Our doctors are committed to helping you achieve a natural result that leaves you looking refreshed and healthy… without the “surgical look.”
BOTOX® and DYSPORT™
Muscle relaxants can be used to treat wrinkles around the eyes, forehead, and frown lines. The product 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 nasolabial folds, and the lips. We also use them to restore volume in the jawline, and to fill the hollows under the eyes.
Eyelid Surgery (blepharoplasty): 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: Fat is removed from your abdomen, thigh, or buttock, then processed via sterilization for transplantation into the areas of the face that require enhancement.
Face Lift (rhytidectomy): 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. Our doctors’ techniques allow for no drains to be placed for faster recovery.
Neck Lift: We use a small incision under the chin that allows fat to be removed either by liposuction or surgical sculpting. Recovery time is typically only a few days. This is a short outpatient procedure.
Scar Revision: Unsightly 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.
