When your body has the time to heal properly, you will set yourself up for the best possible outcome.

During the first week of recovery, you’re not going to feel like doing much more than relaxing on the couch. Take advantage of this rare opportunity and treat yourself to some much-needed downtime.

A facelift is one of many cosmetic solutions designed to give your face a more youthful appearance. As a surgical procedure, it involves a larger commitment than other skin rejuvenation treatments. However, it also yields more enduring results. If signs of aging have begun to appear on your face, it may be time to consider a facelift.

What a Facelift Can Treat

What is the Best Way to Improve the Appearance of Jowls?

November 29, 2018

One of the most common signs of facial aging is the development of jowls. Jowls form when the skin along your jaw line begins to sag downward, resulting in loose skin and a poorly defined jaw.

Fortunately, there are a variety of surgical and nonsurgical options available to help you improve the appearance of jowls. The right option for you will depend on the extent to which you’ve developed jowls and your aesthetic goals. During your initial consultation, our plastic…

One of the most common questions our plastic surgeons hear during tummy tuck consultations involves how long to wait after pregnancy before undergoing the procedure. While there is no hard-and-fast rule regarding the timing of your tummy tuck, our surgeons recommend following some general guidelines.
