A facelift is a surgical procedure that improves visible signs of aging in the face and neck, such as:

  • Relaxation of facial skin; sagging
  • Deep lines between nose and corners of mouth
  • Decreased or lost fatty volume
  • Jowl development in cheeks and jaw
  • Loose skin and excess fat on the neck

Brow Lifts and Eyelid Surgery—which rejuvenate aging eyes—are often performed in conjunction with a facelift. Fat transfers or fillers, as well as skin treatments like dermabrasion and chemical peels are also offered to improve skin texture of the face and neck.


Forehead Lift

A brow lift or forehead lift can:

  • Reduce wrinkles that develop across the forehead, bridge of nose and between the eye
  • Improve vertical frown lines that develop between the eyebrows
  • Raise sagging brows that hood the upper eyelids
  • Re-position eyebrows for a youthful, alert appearance

Facelifts, upper or lower eyelid surgery, and skin resurfacing techniques are often performed in conjunction with brow lifts.



Eyelid surgery can be performed on the upper lids, lower lids or both to rejuvenate the area surrounding your eyes or improve functional problems with your eyelids. More specifically, eyelid surgery can treat:

  • Loose or sagging folds affecting natural contour of the upper eyelids; often impairs vision.
  • Fatty deposits in the eyelids that visualize as puffiness
  • Bags under the eyes
  • Drooping of the lower eyelid
  • Fine wrinkles and/or excess skin on the lower eyelid

Drooping upper eyelids may be caused by relaxation of skin on the forehead and eyebrow. And sometimes stretching out the upper eyelid muscle causes drooping; this is called eyelid ptosis and requires a different surgical treatment.


Lower Rhytidectomy

A neck lift is a surgical procedure that improves visible signs of aging in the jawline and neck. Neck lifts can treat:

  • Excess fat and skin in the lower face; jowl development
  • Fatty deposits under the chin
  • Loose neck skin
  • Abnormal neck contours caused by muscle banding

Brow lifts, fat transfers, and eyelid surgery procedures are often performed in conjunction with neck lifts to further rejuvenate aging eyes, improve appearance of wrinkles in the brow, and to add fullness to the lips and/or cheeks.



A neck tuck is a less-invasive alternative to a full neck lift or lower rhytidectomy. Neck tuck procedures treat:

  • Sagging skin between the chin and neck
  • Fatty accumulation between the chin and neck  

Neck tuck procedures are best suited for younger patients and/or those who are happy with the youthful appearance of their upper face and would like to improve "double chin" and/or "turkey neck".


Nose Surgery

Commonly referred to as a "nose job" by patients, rhinoplasty procedures enhance facial symmetry and can also correct impaired breathing caused by structural nose defects. Rhinoplasty is used to treat or improve:

Unbalanced facial harmony due to size of nose

Nose width at the bridge in relation to size and position of the nostrils

  • Visible humps or depressions on the bridge of the nose
  • Enlarged, drooping, upturned, and hooked nasal tip
  • Flared, wide or upturned nostrils
  • Facial asymmetry

For those interested in Rhinoplasty as a means for correcting a deviated septum–one of the most common causes of breathing impairment–careful evaluation is necessary. Correcting a deviated septum involves adjusting nasal structure to achieve improved alignment.



Ear pinning improves the shape, position or proportion of the ears. Ear pinning can also improve congenital defects present at birth or which present later in development that are related to ear structure that is present at birth or that becomes apparent later in development. Ear pinning can also improve misshapen ears caused by traumatic injury. Some of the most common reasons people seek ear pinning for, include:

  • Excessively large ears (macrotia)
  • Protruding ears not related to hearing loss
  • Correcting prior adult ear surgery procedures

Ear pinning procedures are highly individualized and patients include adults, as well as children and teenagers of all ages.
