Facial Plastic Surgery
Every day, people of all ages and walks of life choose to have facial plastic surgery. Some want to correct birth defects or disfigurements caused by an accident, injury or illness. Others desire cosmetic procedures to change the appearance of facial features they have been unhappy with for many years. Still others long to reverse the signs of aging on their faces.
Injectable fillers can plump thin lips, enhance shallow contours, soften facial creases and wrinkles, or improve the appearance of recessed scars.

A facelift can correct these conditions and give people a more youthful appearance. This procedure involves the tightening of facial and neck skin and muscles, as well as the removal of excess skin. Facelift incisions are placed in areas where they are minimally visible. The objective is to elevate the underlying structures and re drape the skin on the face in order to give a more youthful, healthy and rested appearance.
Also known as a forehead lift, a brow lift minimizes the creases that develop across the forehead, or those that occur high on the bridge of the nose; improves what are commonly referred to as frown lines; and repositions a low or sagging brow.
