A facelift is a procedure that can help provide a more youthful appearance, through facial and skin improvements.
A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, reduces wrinkles that develop across the forehead and between the eyes.
The nose is the defining characteristic of the face, and even a slight disproportion or irregularity may greatly detract from one’s appearance. Deformities may be a familial trait or may be the result of trauma or abnormal development. Nasal deformity can be accompanied by problems in function of the nose including breathing problems and recurring sinus infections. Rhinoplasty may improve not only the aesthetics of the face but also the function of the nose.
When the skin in the lower eyelids hangs down and causes heaviness on the eye, a lower blepharoplasty procedure can prove not only cosmetically appealing but physically necessary.
Blepharoplasty occurs when the skin in the upper eyelids hangs down, causing heaviness on the eye.
Necklift is included in and is part of every facelift. Rarely a patient may present with sagging in the neck only and may be a candidate for isolated necklift. The necklift is essentially the back half of the facelift. The neck ages in three ways. First some necks accumulate fat which is resistant to diet and exercise. This s treated with Kybella injections or liposuction. Some necks have just loose skin which is treated with surgery. Other necks have laxity of the platysma muscle which is also treated with surgery. At Finn Facial Plastics, we will have a candid discussion of your goals and options.

Much of facial aging occurs with the loss of underlying fatty tissue. With age, the fatty tissue of the face diminishes, and skin loses its support. This contributes to drooping and wrinkling in the face.
Ear deformities come in several shapes and sizes. Some ears are normally shaped but protrude further from the head than is normal. This may happen on one or both sides and may happen from either overgrowth of the cartilage of the ear or excessive bone formation behind the ear. This is often a familial trait. Another common deformity of the ear is when the ear fails to fold naturally during development. This causes the antihelix to be flat and the upper portion of the ear to become cupped.
Moh’s surgery can be a tiring and emotional process, but in the right hands, the end result can be amazing. Moh’s surgery is performed on the face when a basal cell or squamous cell carcinoma is present. In order to save as much skin as possible and make sure that the entire carcinoma is removed, patients are referred for Moh’s surgery. This surgery is done in stages, and the number of stages required depends on the pathology. Until the margins are completely clear, the Moh’s surgeon will continue taking layers of skin. In some cases, the repair needed for the size or area of the defect can surpass the expertise of the Moh’s surgeon. Oftentimes, patients are then sent to Dr. Finn to have the repair done. The procedure is covered by insurance.
Although it is impossible to completely remove scars, Dr. Finn utilizes several methods to improve their appearance. Keloid scars, scars from old surgeries and procedures, burns, and accident scars can often be revised or treated.
