I give a unique, customized, natural and beautiful lift with a rapid recovery. I DO NOT believe in or endorse the many named lifts (like weekend lift, 3 day lift, lifestyle lift, liquid lift etc). I believe in a long lasting lift, which not only rejuvenates but beautifies and compliments your face. It takes 1 week for most patients to resume normal activity except for strenuous excercise. The perception and creation of beauty in a face is an artistic innate quality which can be observed by looking at a surgeon's results, unrelated to training or experience. That being said, training and experience provide the tools necessary to achieve that goal, but are insufficient in and of themselves.

About Our Facelift Surgeon

What sets our doctor apart from other qualified technical surgeons is his artistic background as a sculptor, to go along with his excellent technical skill as a surgeon. In matters of cosmetic and reconstructive surgery, only an artist is truly qualified to provide the guidance and vision required for perfect satisfaction. When you meet with our doctor, he will help you find the best way to complement your own natural beauty. Before beginning surgery, our doctor will always take into account the costs and potential risks for patients, and may not recommend surgery if he feels the risks may outweigh the benefits. As a dedicated specialist in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, our doctor will always provide the results that are best for you.

Our doctor's approach is to maintain the patient's natural look with a long lasting results while performing facelift and rhinoplasty procedures. He is specialized in improving Facial and Nasal structures by combining the latest advance of PRP fat transplantation, short scars facelift and a 3D high definition telescope for a meticulous procedure. Using these techniques can all contribute to the rapid recovery period. Our doctor only recommends each patient for what they really need to improve by customizing his facelift and/or rhinoplasty procedure to meet their needs.  Many times, facelift and necklift procedures are performed within the same surgical operation.
