Face & Neck Lift - fort worth, texas
Redraping of the skin and soft tissues of the face and neck. Incisions in front of and behind the ears and often beneath the chin allow access to the tissues to be recontoured. The tissues of the face and neck are intimately connected such that to most aggressively contour muscle bands in the neck, the incisions around the ear are utilized. Many patients who inquire about a neck lift but don’t want ‘a face lift’ are educated that both areas are treated by definition due to the connection of the tissues in these areas.

Dermal Fillers - fort worth, texas
Fillers is a general term for injection of a product designed to restore volume to the face. There are many manufacturers and each manufacturer has many products to offer. The type of filler used is determined by the area the patients wishes to alter: cheeks and temples require one type of filler, lip augmentation a completely different type. Injections can be done in other areas beyond the face, most commonly the backs of the hands. The most common fillers I use are Restylane® Lyft, Restylane® Refyne, Restylane® Defyne and Restylane® Silk.
