Neck Tightening – Are you ready for this?

Published: August 23, 2012

Neck Tightening – Are you ready for this? Neck aging is a focus for many of my patients. Significant weight loss, aging, accumulated sun exposure and genetics all contribute to necks with banding, jowling along the jaw line, and lax skin. (Remember Ally Mcbeal and the waddle fetish?) I see this in women in their … Continue reading Neck Tightening – Are you ready for this?

For this group, minimally … Continue reading Dip your toe in the pool with minimally invasive treatments!

Volumetry: A New Dimension in Facial Rejuvenation

Published: July 25, 2011

Tissues sag with age, and this leads to lower brows, descent of the “apple” of the cheek into the jowl elongating … Continue reading Volumetry: A New Dimension in Facial Rejuvenation

What does Board Certification mean?

Published: April 25, 2011

It is recommended in many places that consumers interested in plastic surgery should check board certification of their doctor. I am often asked about board certification, which I think is great! The more informed my patients are, the better off we all are. I have been Board Certified in Plastic Surgery since 2000, and fulfilled … Continue reading What does Board Certification mean?
