Facial Plastic Surgery Options
The Facelift restores a youthful appearance and corrects age-related imperfections in the mid-to-lower face.
There are many different techniques used, but the goals of a facelift are excellent cheek volume, a smooth jawline, no excess fat or muscle laxity around the neck, and an absence of an "operated on" look.
Great candidates for a facelift are concerned about:
- Deep folds around the mouth and nose
- Loose skin and fat around the neck and jaw
- Sagging tissue around the middle of the face
A neck lift procedure is designed to reverse the signs of aging around the neck, including loose skin, sagging muscles, extra fat, and restore youthful, angular qualities to the lower face. It is similar to a facelift, but the focus is on the lower face and neck.

Neck Liposuction is an excellent option for removing persistent, unwanted fat in the chin and neck, giving you that youthful, angular lower face you desire. Unlike the neck lift, this procedure doesn't tighten muscles or skin. The focus is on the removal of fat, allowing the skin to shrink on its own.
This method is excellent for younger patients with good skin elasticity and muscle tone.
Great candidates for neck liposuction are concerned about:
- Additional fat in the chin and neck

The goal of a nose surgery is to give patients a more proportional nose. This procedure is designed to enhance your nose and produce satisfying results while retaining your unique character.
Great candidates for nose surgery are concerned about:
- Large nose
- Crooked nose

- Nasal hump
- Bulbous tip
- Wide nostrils
Cheek enhancement can be accomplished by the use of facial implants. A facial implant is a silicone implant designed to augment a certain area of the face. Additionally, cheek enhancements can be accomplished through dermal fillers that are injected to restore skin volume.
The goal of these procedures is to enhance the cheek structure. It eliminates the sagging skin and wrinkles brought on by age, weight loss, or inadequate cheek structure to give you the full, youthful-looking cheeks you desire.

This procedure is designed to add or reduce chin projection by reshaping the chin. This is achieved with the use of a chin implant, or through a slightly more complicated procedure called a sliding genioplasty. A sliding genioplasty moves the lower front portion of the jaw forward.
Great candidates for chin enhancement are concerned about:
- An aesthetic imbalance caused by a weak chin
Chin surgery is most commonly used to correct an abnormally small chin, a condition known as microgenia.
While fillers can be used to restore volume to the face, they are temporary and need to be repeated. Fat transfer is a natural way to restore permanent volume to the face.
The goal of a fat transfer procedure is to restore youthful plumpness and contours and reverse the signs of aging. Fat is most commonly transferred to the cheeks but can also be used to fill smile lines and the hollow areas along the lower eyelids and in the temples, lips, nose, chin, and jawline.
Great candidates for fat transfer are concerned about:
- Lost facial volume and skin elasticity
- Facial wrinkles, lines, and indentations
- Lack of facial contour
