Face and Neck

Chin Implant/Mentoplasty

Aesthetic surgery on the chin is usually performed to improve the balance of your facial profile and correct a “weak” chin.  Chin augmentation with implants is the procedure of choice for most patients with normal teeth and jaw development.  A biocompatible implant is placed over the bone structure of the lower jaw, augmenting the dimensions of your chin and/or jaw bringing the face into a more harmonious balance. Depending on the region of the chin or jaw that is augmented, we can create a stronger chin and even lengthen your face.


Face-lift surgery is a cosmetic procedure that involves removing sagging skin and tightening muscle tissue of the face and neck to counter signs of aging. The procedure is designed to counter sagging and looseness in skin and muscle tissue that becomes more pronounced as individuals age.

Short Scar (or Mini) Facelift

A short scar facelift or J-lift uses small incisions to tighten underlying facial muscle tissue and remove sagging skin. Short scar lifts are meant for patients with less significant facial aging and tends to have a shorter recovery than the traditional facelift.

Hear Dr. Chance describe the latest techniques in facelifts and why today’s facelifts differ from those performed in the past.


A necklift is a cosmetic procedure that involves treating the sagging skin and muscle of the aging neck. It is usually part of a facelift but may be performed alone when the patient is satisfied with their facial appearance but desires neck rejuvenation. The repair of the playsma muscles (superficial neck muscle) helps redefine the neck and achieve a more youthful appearance.

Face and Neck Liposuction

Cervical liposuction is removal of the fat in the anterior neck/below the chin to reduce the volume and appearance of a “double chin.”
