What is skin rejuvenation and resurfacing?
Sun, aging, skin disorders, and even heredity all play a role and contribute to skin irregularities on the face and elsewhere on the body. Examples of these include wrinkles and acne scars, pigmentation changes like freckles and sunspots, or visible blood vessels.
Conditions that may be treated with skin rejuvenation and resurfacing include*:
- Dynamic wrinkles: These are expression lines that may appear as folds when the skin is not moving, and deepen with facial movements or expressions
- Static wrinkles: These wrinkles are visible at all times and do not change in appearance with facial movements
- Scars: As the result of acne or injury to the skin, scars may be rolling (a wavy appearance to the skin), discolored, pitted, or have raised borders
- Pigmentation: Freckles, sun spots, or other darkened patches of skin can result from sun exposure
- Loss of skin tone: Weakening of the supportive skin structures (collagen and elastin fibers) that result in a loss of skin firmness or the development of cellulite
- Vascular conditions: Blood vessels visible on the surface of the skin, vascular lesions that appear as tiny blood-filled blisters or even a constant flush of facial redness.

Surgery of the Chin
Chin surgery may change the shape of the chin or enhance the chin to bring it into balance and proportion with the other facial features. The contour of the chin may be reshaped to be smoother, or more angular in appearance.
Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)
Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is designed to reduce excess skin and fat from the upper and lower eyelids. The procedure may correct drooping upper lids that tend to sag with time and the puffy bags below the eyes. The procedure usually takes about 1 hour and can be performed in the office using local anesthesia. Stitches can be removed after three or four days. Blepharoplasty can be done as a single procedure, or in conjunction with other facial surgery such as a facelift or a browlift. For additional information on eyelid surgery visit:
As a person ages, the long-term effects of gravity, exposure to sun, dry air, and general stress takes its toll on an individual’s face and neckline. Jowls can develop under the jawline with folds and fat deposits. Usually creases begin to form between the nose and the mouth. A facelift may considerably reduce these signs of aging by potentially removing excess fat, tightening the underlying muscles, and redraping the skin around the neck and face. Facelifts can be done alone, or frequently performed in conjunction with another procedure such as a browlift, eyelid surgery, or nose reshaping. If your problem areas are limited to the neck, a more conservative procedure, known as a “necklift” will be recommended. In some cases, a facelift may reduce the outward signs of aging by ten or fifteen years.*

A forehead lift or “browlift” is used to correct a drooping browline (eyebrow area) reducing the horizontal lines and furrows (worry lines) that often make a person appear tired, angry or sad. This procedure creates a refreshed, youthful appearance to the forehead area above the eyes. When performing a forehead lift procedure, muscles and tissue areas that droop or cause creases are corrected to make the skin on the forehead appear more smooth and may help reduce frown lines and raise the eyebrows. There are two surgical methods, and during your initial consultation the procedure that works best for you will be recommended. The first is the most conventional method where a surgical incision is hidden just above the hairline. Browlifts are also performed using an endoscope which enables the procedure to be performed with a minimal number of incisions. While the traditional method can sometimes attain more lift, both methods may create smoother, flatter skin on the forehead.*

Full and voluptuous lips have always been recognized as an aesthetically important and desirable feature. Some of us however, are born with thin, ill-defined lips. But the appearance of our lips is now within our control. During this procedure, a piece of tissue is borrowed from somewhere in your body and grafted into one or both lips. We can also use Alloderm® or Gortex® which are tissue implants to help plump up and may fill in lips and nasolabial folds.
What is Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty enhances facial harmony and the proportions of your nose. It may also be used to correct impaired breathing caused by structural defects in the nose.*
Rhinoplasty surgery may potentially change:
- Nasal asymmetry
- Nose width at the bridge or in the size and position of the nostrils
- Nose profile with visible humps or depressions on the bridge
- Nose size in relation to facial balance.
- Nostrils that are large, wide, or upturned
- Nasal tip that is enlarged or bulbous, drooping, upturned or hooked.
Rhinoplasty to correct a deviated septum
Nose surgery that’s done to improve an obstructed airway requires careful evaluation of the nasal structure as it relates to airflow and breathing.
Correction of a deviated septum, one of the most common causes of breathing impairment, is achieved by adjusting the nasal structure to produce better alignment.

Surgery of the Ear (Otoplasty)
With one or more common techniques, the surgeon makes a small incision in the back of the ear to expose the ear cartilage. The surgeon will then sculpt the cartilage and bend it back toward the head. Non-removable stitches may be used to help maintain the new shape. Occasionally, the surgeon will remove a larger piece of cartilage to provide a more natural-looking fold when the surgery is complete. In most cases, ear surgery will leave a faint scar in the back of the ear that may fade with time.
