Your eyes are very expressive; they can tell people if you’re interested in something or happy. So bags or puffiness under your eyes, excess skin on the lower lids or wrinkled and drooping upper lids can make you look tired. Sagging of the eyelids can result from genetics or aging, and they can also cause impaired vision. Blepharoplasty or Eyelid Surgery removes excess fat and skin or loosened muscles from the lower or upper eyelids, giving you a refreshed, firmer looking eye area.
When signs of aging appear like sagging in the mid face region , creases under the lower eyelids, creases along the nose and the mouth and jowls – they can be easily corrected with a Facelift. A variety of Facelift procedures including the traditional method, Neck Lift, or the limited incision procedure, can take care of age related issues on your face and neck. For example, the traditional procedure starts at the temples at the hairline, and goes around the ears, ending at the lower scalp. Dr. Plant will discuss the procedure that’s best for you during your consultation.
Did you know that your neck says more about your age than your face? Sagging, bags on the jowls, loose skin on the neck or fat on the chin can be due to aging, weight loss or even genetics.

An incision is made from the ear lobe to the lower scalp going behind the ear, excessive skin is removed, and the fat and muscle is repositioned, lifting the jowl and neck.
