Eyelid Lift: Eyelid lifts are called Blepharoplasty. The procedure removes excess skin and fat from the upper and lower eyelids. Upper eyelid lifts most often remove hanging skin from the outside of the eyelid while lower eyelid lifts usually remove bulging fat using an incision on the inside of the lower eyelid. Laser tightening is also used to tighten the lower lid skin after removal of the pocket of fat. These are safe and effective procedures for improving the appearance of the eyelids.
S-Facelift: The S-lift is also known as the Mini-Facelift and the Lunch Time Lift. It improves the appearance of the lower third of the face. Specifically, it tightens the loose skin of the chin and upper neck and flattens drooping jowls. The procedure gets its name from the “S” shaped small incision made at the front border of the ear. The S-lift is a safe procedure that is minimally invasive, has less down time from traditional facelifts and provides excellent results in the right candidates. Liposuction is done along with the S-lift to provide additional tightening of the neck.
Neck Lift: Neck lifts treat excess or sagging skin of the neck and chin areas. A one inch incision is made under the chin and the vertical muscles of the neck are sutured back together along with removing the excess skin. The scar is barely noticeable because of its position under the chin. It is a safe, effective procedure that gives great improvement to clients with excess neck skin.
These are safe procedures that are performed in the office operating suite. A pre-operative evaluation will evaluate your medical conditions and medications. A surgical clearance is occasionally required. Our staff will do their best to make sure you have realistic expectations of your outcome from each of these facial procedures.
Each of these procedures takes from 1-2 hours. The procedures are performed using local, tumescent anesthesia along with oral, intramuscular and intravenous medication so that you are comfortable during the surgery. The fact that the surgery is done in the office allows us to keep the costs to a minimum.

The client can go back to work in 14-21 days with full healing in 3-4 weeks.
Neck Lift: The client goes home the same day. One or two rubber drains may be in place for about a week. The sutures dissolve so that no sutures will have to be removed. The client can go back to work in 7-10 days without any heavy lifting or vigorous activity with full recovery in 3-4 weeks.
