Welcome to the Plastic Surgery Center
Putting Your Best Face Forward Every Day

These before and after photos are after FaceTite of the neck.

A famous plastic surgeon once said, “Low self-esteem is like driving through life with your hand brake on.”

Feeling confident comes from within, and it’s often something people work for years to achieve. Yet, as we get older, that once plenteous stockpile of self-esteem can whither each time we look in a mirror.

One of the most common complaints we hear from our patients is a desire to erase the effects of aging that can lead to lower self-esteem. With the advancements in facial cosmetic surgery as well as non-invasive treatments, self-confidence can once again rise to more comfortable levels.

As you age, certain predictable changes occur in your face. Heredity, environmental factors, gravity, sun exposure and weight fluctuations may cause changes such as fine lines, wrinkles, lost volume and sagging skin.

You don’t have to sit back and watch passively as these changes take effect. It is possible to regain your youthful appearance and erase some of the effects of aging.

A plastic surgeon can make subtle aesthetic changes that take 10-15 years off your face. These changes, when done by an experienced board certified plastic surgeon, can enhance your natural beauty and improve functional problems caused by aging.

Our patients tell us how much their self-esteem improves after they attend to areas that are bothering them. Here are a few of the ways to refresh your look and put your best face forward every day:

Face Lift

Reverse the effects of aging with a face lift. It’s the ultimate facial rejuvenation with the most dramatic results giving your face a tighter, more youthful look.

FaceTite

FaceTite uses radio-frequency energy so you get surgical results with dramatically less downtime. FaceTite is comparable to a mini- facelift but without the scars and surgery. You’ll notice dramatic improvement in skin laxity on the face and neck, as it melts fat and tighten skin on areas on the face and neck with sagging skin.

CO2 Laser Resurfacing

These short laser treatments address a wide range of skin imperfections on your face, neck and décolletage, including deep wrinkles and scars. Treatments improve skin tone, texture and fine lines.

Neck Lift

A neck lift can improve skin laxity, your profile, banding in your neck area and the dreaded turkey-waddle.

Browlift Surgery

A browlift will open up the area around your eyes. It smoothes wrinkles and give you a more rested, youthful look.

Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery can enhance the appearance of both the upper and lower eyelids. It gives the area surrounding your eyes a rejuvenated appearance, allowing you to look more rested and alert. In some cases, it can help you see better by opening up the visual field.

Rhinoplasty

A rhinoplasty improves your facial balance by reshaping the profile, width, tip and shape of your nose.

Chin Augmentation

This surgery enhances your facial balance and augments a “weak” chin. It may be recommended with a rhinoplasty to help balance your facial proportions.

Smartlipo TriPlex™

This laser technology tightens the skin while melting unwanted fat for an improved chin, jaw and neckline.

Ultherapy®

Ultherapy® non-invasively lifts and tightens your skin, naturally, from the inside out.  

Injectables and Fillers

These treatments provide noticeable results with no surgery or recovery time. They reduce fine lines and wrinkles and add volume. Injectables are quite effective when used in combination with surgical procedures.

Wondering if a facial procedure is right for you? Your first step is a consultation with one of our highly-trained plastic surgeons who can help you meet your goals.

Real Patients. Real Results.

Our FaceTite and Rhinoplasty patient says, “If you’re unhappy with the way you look, these are easy fixes!”

Tell us about your journey to FaceTite and Rhinoplasty:

PSC Patient: I had my FaceTite procedure in May to treat the sagging skin on my lower face and under my chin. I’d been conscientious about my skin for a long time and wanted to improve my appearance. I just had my Rhinoplasty (I haven’t taken my after photos yet.), and I love it. I wish I’d done it sooner to get rid of the point on my nose.

How did you feel after the procedures?

PSC Patient: I had each of them on a Friday, and I was back to work on Tuesday. They were both very easy for me.

When did you notice your results?

PSC Patient: I noticed the results from FaceTite after the swelling went down in about three weeks, and I noticed the Rhinoplasty results shortly after surgery.

Are you happy with your results?

PSC Patient: I am so happy with the results – they exceeded all my expectations. I had been afraid of a Rhinoplasty for a long time and was worried that it would hurt. Now I wish I’d done it sooner. I love that FaceTite got rid of my sagging skin under my chin.

Do you have advice for people considering FaceTite and Rhinoplasty?

PSC Patient: Both of my procedures left me looking so natural. Don’t struggle with your face because these are really easy fixes. You see your face all the time, and if it makes you unhappy, you can change it. I would definitely do it again.

Real Patients. Real Results.

Our eighteen-year-old patient, Demi, says her treatments at PSC Aesthetics at the Plastic Surgery Center have changed her life forever.

Tell us about your struggles with acne:

Demi: It started when I was 13, and at first, I didn’t want to do anything, but finally I agreed to go to a salon. They did some extractions, and my skin started to get better. After the salon closed, we discovered the Plastic Surgery Center. On our first visit, my mom and I both had a HydraFacial. This treatment changed my life forever. The medical aesthetician then created a plan for me that has made all the difference.

Explain your course of treatment over the last few years:

Demi: At first, I had a HydraFacial every month along with the PCASkin Oxygenating Trio to really clear out my skin. I started using CLENZIderm along with the iSClinical Serum and moisturizer.  I also had several SkinPen® treatments to get rid of my scarring. Next, we added Skin Accumax vitamins. In addition to acne, enlarged pores, and blackheads on my face, I also struggled with back and chest acne because I work out all the time. The Skin Accumax completely changed my skin, and breakouts are basically non-existent. Currently, I have a HydraFacial and dermaplane every two months (each time my skin is less and less congested), use the skin care products, and take the vitamins. My skin looks great!

How do you feel now?

Demi: I am so grateful for the office and the care they have given and continue to give me. I have more self-esteem, and my life has changed for the better.

Do you have advice for people struggling with acne?

Demi: If you have the opportunity to get some help, reach out for it. It will boost your confidence. Getting acne treatments is the best way to fix your skin. It will change your life like it did mine. I am a people person, and it can be hard to feel confident in today’s society.  Fixing my acne has helped me because when I feel confident, I am able to better interact with people.

What are your plans for the future?

Demi:  I love to help others and because of my struggles with acne, I want to pay it forward. I have had such a great experience working with my medical aesthetician that I have decided to pursue this as my career. I begin school in the fall, and I can’t wait to help other people feel more confident and have great looking skin!

When Stubborn Fat Just Won’t Budge

While they sound similar, losing weight and reducing fat are different. When people lose weight, they may not always have a more sculpted appearance. But, when they reduce fat, their body contours and shape can change.

So, while many of our patients are healthy, eat well, and exercise, they find they still have pockets of fat that just won’t go away. This is where CoolSculpting® comes in.

What is CoolSculpting?

It’s an FDA-cleared procedure that treats visible fat bulges under the chin and jawline areas, thighs, abdomen and flank, as well as bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks and the upper arm.  It is not a treatment for weight loss, but it does help those people who have stubborn pockets of fat that are difficult to reduce despite diet and exercise efforts.

How Does It Work?

CoolSculpting is fat loss, not weight loss. The number of fat cells you’re going to have is set during childhood and your teens years. It’s specific to you and varies from person to person. If you gain weight, your fat cells expand, causing your body to expand. If you eat healthy and exercise, your fat cells shrink. If you stop your healthy habits, the fat cells expand again, adding unwanted bulges.

CoolSculpting addresses these bulges using cryolipolysis technology (precisely controlled cooling). It’s a non-invasive treatment that targets and freezes fat cells. As your body naturally eliminates the dead cells in two-six months or more, you see up to a 20-25% fat reduction in the treated areas. We can pinpoint your exact trouble spots and customize a treatment plan that’s unique to you and your body contouring goals.

What is the Treatment Like?

We apply a clear gel pad to your treatment area to create a barrier between your skin and the cooling panel. You may feel a slight sucking sensation as the applicator adheres to your body. You may experience sensations of pulling, tugging, cold, mild pinching, stinging, aching, or cramping at the treatment site, but they subside as the area gets numb.

During treatment, you can read, answer emails, or chat with a friend. We do a brief massage afterwards on the area to break up the treated fat cells and enhance the fat reduction. That’s it! Most of our  patients experience little to no downtime after treatment.

The Ideal CoolSculpting Candidate

If you have healthy eating habits and an active lifestyle, cryolipolysis is a safe and effective way to reduce excess fat. It is best for patients at or near their ideal body weight who want to reduce fat in one or more of the FDA-cleared treatment areas. More than one treatment is usually needed.

If you’d like to learn how CoolSculpting can help in those areas that have resisted diet and exercise efforts, your first step is a consultation at the Plastic Surgery Center to learn if CoolSculpting is right for you.

Real Patients. Real Results.

Our sixty-five-year-old patient explains how happy she is with her CoolSculpting lower abdomen treatments and her fantastic results.

Tell us about your journey to CoolSculpting:

PSC Patient: I heard about it at an event and decided I wanted to give it a try. I eat well and exercise, but the spot right below my belly button had bothered me for a long time, and I wanted to get rid of it.

How did you feel during and after the treatment?

PSC Patient: The treatment itself was a great experience. I got to relax in a quiet room, read a magazine, nap, and look at my phone. It was super comfortable, and I had no pain, discomfort, or stinging. That was it. I left and went about my day as if nothing had happened.

When did you notice your results?

PSC Patient: About a week or so after treatment I began to notice my stomach looked different. About three weeks later, I said to myself, “Wow, my stomach fat is gone now.” It’s definitely a gradual change.

Are you happy with your results?

PSC Patient: Yes, I am very happy with my results, and I am thinking about doing it again on a different area. My clothes feel better, and it’s such an easy treatment with no bruising or pain. I feel great, and I am so glad I did it.

Do you have advice for people considering CoolSculpting?

PSC Patient: Do it. You can go in over your lunch hour, relax, leave, and feel so much more self-confident in a little bit of time.  For me, the key to a really great treatment is that it looks so good no one knows you did it. That’s CoolSculpting.
