Brow (Forehead) Lift

A brow lift can make you look more youthful and energetic by:

  • Reducing wrinkles on the forehead and between the eyes
  • Improving frown lines, the vertical creases that form between the eyebrows
  • Raising sagging brows

Chin Surgery

Bring balance to your face with chin surgery, or chin augmentation, also known as mentoplasty. A surgeon will determine what approach to treatment would benefit you. Options may include:

  • Getting a customized implant that rounds out your chin
  • Reshaping the jaw bone

You might receive this procedure at the same time as a nose job, or rhinoplasty, to make your chin appear proportional to your reshaped nose.

Ear Surgery

Make your ears appear in better harmony with your face by getting otoplasty. This procedure can reshape or move protruding, large, or injured ears in adults or children at least 5 years old. In the most common treatment, ear pinning, a surgeon folds protruding ears back toward the head and uses stitches to hold them in place—thus making the ears less noticeable.

Eyelid Surgery

Reduce eyelid droopiness or puffiness with an eye lift, or blepharoplasty. A surgeon restores the natural contours of your eyes while reducing tiny wrinkles and removing excess fat and skin.

Full Facelift

Tighten muscles and reduce wrinkles and fat throughout your face with a full facelift, or rhytidectomy. This procedure can enhance your forehead, jaw line, and cheeks while removing excess skin. Trust your surgeon to develop a customized treatment plan based on your facial bone structure, contours, skin condition, and hairline.

Mini Facelift

Rejuvenate your jawline, neck, and cheeks with a mini facelift, or lower facelift. You’ll likely recover faster and need only local anesthesia for this procedure.

Nose Job

Shrink, enlarge, or reshape your nose with a rhinoplasty. During this common procedure, a surgeon might move or eliminate some nasal tissue, bone or cartilage to:

  • Improve your face’s look
  • Make it easier to breathe 
  • Repair an injury

A surgeon may ask you or your child to wait until the mid-teen years, when the nasal bone finishes growing, to receive this surgery.
