  • Facelift – Traditional surgery reduces wrinkles and gives you tighter, younger-looking skin.
  • Facelift – Mid, also called a cheek lift, restores fullness and a youthful look to the middle of the face.
  • Facelift – Deep Plane, also called an SMAS facelift, offers advanced surgical correction for patients at a deeper level and delivers more dramatic results than a traditional facelift.
  • Facelift – Mini, also commonly called a limited-incision or short-scar facelift, is a less invasive surgical alternative for patients requiring only minimal correction of the lower face, such as mild sagging and jowling.
  • Neck lift tightens loose skin and stretched neck muscles, sculpts the jawline, and removes excess fat from under the chin and on the neck.
  • Brow lift reduces frown lines, forehead wrinkles, and drooping eyebrows.
  • Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) corrects signs of aging around the eyes, helping you look younger and more alert.
  • Asian eyelid surgery creates a more defined upper eyelid crease.
  • Chin augmentation gives your face balance.
  • Cheek augmentation enhances the midface for a sculpted look.
  • Cosmetic rhinoplasty changes the size and shape of your nose for improved proportions.
  • Medical rhinoplasty corrects the nasal airways to improve breathing.
  • Ear surgery (otoplasty) improves the appearance of protruding or overly large ears.
  • Facial sculpting improves balance among facial features with facial implants, cheek and jaw reduction, or neck liposuction.

How the Face Ages

The young face has full, rounded cheeks, a defined jawline, and firm, smooth skin. Over the years, gravity, sun exposure, heredity, and stress contribute to aging of the skin and tissues of the face and neck. In addition, collagen production in the skin slows down, making the skin thinner and less elastic. Fullness under the eyes and in the mid-cheek area diminishes or descends to form nasolabial folds and jowls. For some, fat accumulates on the jawline, under the chin, and along the neck.
