Personalized plastic surgery care

Our plastic surgery team are providers of care and educators who train the next generation of plastic surgeons, so you can feel confident you're receiving the best, most up-to-date care.

Facial procedures we offer include:

Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery)

Blepharoplasty, surgery of the eyelids, is performed to rejuvenate the eye area by addressing loose and excess skin, puffy eyelids, and bags beneath the eyes. Depending upon the areas of concern, blepharoplasty is performed on the upper eyelids, the lower eyelids or both.

The average recovery from this surgery is about ten days, with swelling becoming less noticeable for weeks or months.

Forehead lift

A forehead lift pulls the skin of the forehead tighter to remove wrinkles and smooth creases. The eyebrows are also elevated for a more alert and youthful appearance. Patients with deep furrows between the eyebrows also benefit from a forehead lift as the lines are minimized as the eyebrows are raised.

Most patients are able to resume normal activity within ten days of surgery, but recovery can be significantly longer if combined with other facial surgeries.

Rhinoplasty (nose surgery)

Rhinoplasty, commonly known as a nose job, is performed to reshape the nose and bring it into balance with the rest of the facial features. The surgeon may reduce the overall size of the nose or refine specific areas of the nose for a more pleasing appearance.

Bruising can be obvious after surgery but fades during the first seven to ten days, when most patients return to work.

Rhytidectomy (facelift)

A rhytidectomy, or facelift, is a surgical solution to the wrinkles and sagging that accompany aging. A more youthful appearance is achieved by tightening the underlying facial muscles and gently pulling the skin tighter, smoothing deep lines and minimizing sagging. A facelift is frequently combined with another procedure, such as a forehead lift, eyelid surgery or skin peels, to further rejuvenate the appearance of the patient.

Swelling, redness and bruising are normal after surgery but most patients can return to work within two weeks. Healing is complete and the final results are often apparent within twelve weeks.
