Facial Plastic Surgery Using State-of-the-art Techniques
Facelift surgery is designed to help patients achieve a more youthful, vibrant appearance. During the procedure, Dr. Stephen P. Hardy will improve the look of sagging facial skin and muscles, remove excess fat, and restore firmness to the face and neck. Dr. Hardy has extensive skill performing facelifts, and his close attention to detail helps to ensure the most natural-looking results possible.
Like many patients, you may find that most facial lines and wrinkles occur around your forehead. A brow lift is designed to address cosmetic concerns in this area. After creating a small incision near your hairline or upper eyelid, Dr. Hardy will raise drooping skin to give you a more youthful appearance. A brow lift can also be combined with a facelift or another procedure.
If you have puffy or sagging upper or lower eyelids, eyelid surgery can help you look younger and more alert and even improve your quality of vision. During eyelid surgery, we will create an incision along your eyelid crease, your lower lash line, or the inside of your lower lid. Through this opening, Dr. Hardy will raise sagging tissues and eliminate excess fat deposits.
Although children are often the most suitable candidates, otoplasty (also known as ear pinning) can benefit patients of all ages. During an otoplasty procedure, Dr. Hardy will remove excess skin from your ears and reshape cartilage. He can also position your ears closer to your head, depending on your unique goals.
We proudly offer expert care for children born with cleft lips or cleft palates. Dr. Hardy has completed a fellowship exclusively focused on pediatric craniofacial surgery, and he has been widely published in this delicate area of plastic surgery, so you can rest assured that your child will be in highly skilled hands.
During a fat transfer, Dr. Hardy removes excess fat from one area of the body using liposuction and injects it into another area to add fullness. Areas that can benefit from the transferred fat include the face, lips, and hands. The procedure produces long-lasting, natural-looking results. Fat transfer is a relatively complex process that should only be performed by a skilled, board-certified plastic surgeon.
The neck lift is conducted to tighten the skin tissue below the chin and jaw area to help you look toned and refreshed. Dr. Hardy provides a personalized treatment to remove excess skin and fat deposits to decrease signs of aging and obtain a healthy look.
