When you look in the mirror what do you see? If you are like most, your attention is most often drawn to what you consider to be imperfections. Wrinkles on your brow, sagging skin on your neck, an unsightly bump on your nose, hair loss; these are but a few of the many imperfections and noticeable signs of aging that most people long to correct. Enter face and head plastic surgery, an aesthetic solution that can help you look and feel your best.


Rhinoplasty — commonly referred to as a nose job — can be used to reshape your nose. It can correct a structural deformity (such as a bump or hook), provide subtle changes to nose size and shape, or correct a functional problem (such as difficulty breathing). Redo or revision rhinoplasty is sometimes needed to improve upon the cosmetic result or correct a breathing problem that occurred after the initial nose surgery. Find out everything you need to know about rhinoplasty, including important information on rhinoplasty cost, recovery, revision rhinoplasty and types here.

The wrinkle-erasing effects of injectables and fillers last for several months, but the age-defying results of a facelift can last for more than 10 years. Still, a facelift (rhytidectomy) is a major surgical procedure. There are many facelift variations, including the SMAS lift (submuscular aponeurotic system) and the mid-facelift. The different types vary by incision type, number of tissue layers treated during the procedure, facial area, degree of invasiveness, facelift recovery time and facelift cost.

Eyelid surgery can help erase the sagging skin around this delicate area.

Women with long, flowing locks, and men with thick, shiny heads of hair, embody our image of beauty and vitality. Hair loss — including female hair loss — can affect self-esteem and make people feel incredibly self-conscious. The good news is that today’s hair transplants are more natural looking than ever before. If hair loss extends to your eyelashes, Latisse, an FDA-approved eyelash lengthening drug may be just what the plastic surgeon ordered.
