Neck Lift

+ Neck Lift

A neck lift is a procedure which involves the tightening of skin, and if necessary muscle to smooth and tighten the neck. Good candidates for this procedure, are individuals who notice sagging skin as a result of aging or weight loss. There are usually two components to a neck lift: cervicoplasty, which removes excess skin, and platysmaplasty, which tightens muscles in the neck. A neck lift can be performed alone or as part of a facelift.

Brow lift

+ Brow Lift

A brow lift is a procedure performed to raise the position of the eyebrows. Good candidates are individuals who notice they have heavy, low brows which can give the appearance of being angry or tired. Dr. Yates performs brow lifts through the hairline (coronal) or upper eyelid incision (trans palpebral).

Blepharoplasty (Eyelid surgery)

+ Eyelid Lift

An eyelid lift (Blepharoplasty) is a plastic surgery procedure which involves the removal excess skin and if required fat to give eyes a more youthful appearance. Good candidates for this procedure have sagging, drooping or baggy eyelids for either upper, lowers or both lids. Incisions are hidden in the natural eyelid creases and often fade to being barely visible over time.

 
Rhinoplasty

+ Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is a procedure performed to improve the aesthetic appearance of the nose. Dr. Yates performs open rhinoplasty in which a small incision is made close to the base of the nose (on the columella). Dr.Yates performs rhinoplasty to remove bumps, straighten a crooked nose, improve the angle or enhance the tip of the nose. During your consultation Dr. Yates will analyze your nose and work with you to create a individualized treatment plan for natural looking enhancements that will be in harmony with your ethnicity and other facial features.

Lip Lift

+ Lip Lift

A lip lift is a small procedure done for the subtle improvement in upper lip position. This procedure is done under local or twilight anesthesia. Dr. Yates removes a small amount of skin at the base of the nose resulting in elevated upper lip position, improved pout and increased show of the teeth. Good candidates for this procedure have an elongated distance from the base of the nose to the edge of the upper lip.

Neck Liposuction

+ Neck Liposuction

Neck liposuction is the gold standard technique to remove unwanted fulness in the sub mental area (under the chin). This is a minimally invasive procedure done through a single incision underneath the chin. After liposuction dramatic changes in contour are seen as fat is removed and the skin subsequently tightens. In some patients kybella injections may achieve similar results. In those patients with significant excess skin, Dr. Yates may recommend a neck lift in conjunction with neck liposuction.

Face Lift

+ Facelift

A facelift (Rhytidectomy) is the gold standard procedure for patients that are seeking the ultimate facial rejuvenation. It can effectively turn back the hands of time for a more youthful appearance. There are various facelift techniques, during your consultation, Dr. Yates will advise you which best suits your aesthetic goals. The procedure involves tightening of the muscles and skin to reveal a more youthful rejuvenated face. Dr. Yates uses advanced techniques, allowing for long lasting results that still maintain a natural aesthetic. The primary benefit of a facelift is the addressing the laxity of skin. As we age, our skin loses its firmness and elasticity. There is also volume loss in the form of fat descent and fat absorption over time. This results in the development of sagging skin with jowls along the jawline. A facelift surgically addresses the lower portion of the face improving mainly the cheeks and the nasolabial folds. A neck lift is most commonly performed at the same time in order to achieve a well-balanced facial rejuvenation for a cleaner chin and jawline definition. Dr.Yates will advise you if she thinks you need volume replacement in the cheeks at the time of your facelift.
