Surgery can't stop the aging process, but it can certainly turn back the clock. Facial plastic surgery in Marin County at Plastic Surgery Specialists can improve the most visible signs of aging by removing excess fat and tightening underlying muscles and the skin of the face and neck. Dr. Stanley G. Poulos and Dr. Yngvar A. Hvistendahl can also provide beautiful results in correcting any imperfections a patient was born with, such as noses or ears that need to be reshaped.

Procedures We Offer
As people age, the effects of gravity, exposure to the sun, and the stresses of daily life can be seen in their faces. Deep creases form between the nose and mouth, the jawline grows slack and jowly, and folds and fat deposits appear around the neck. There are a lot of options to choose from, ranging from a full facelift to blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) at our Marin County practice. Here is a menu of the facial rejuvenation options we offer Plastic Surgery Specialists:
A facelift is an advanced surgical procedure that lifts and repositions the skin and underlying muscle and tissue. Our specialists use techniques that get natural-looking results without a "windswept" look.
Ideal for busy men and women who aren't ready for a traditional facelift, a QuickLift is a modified facial rejuvenation procedure that targets sagging skin on the middle and lower portions of the face.
Also called a forehead lift, this procedure is an excellent option for men and women whose sagging brows give them an angry, sad, or tired appearance. It is sometimes combined with eyelid surgery to complete the rejuvenation.
An aging neck is one of the most common cosmetic concerns of our patients. A neck lift can help improve your profile by tightening the skin and muscles that begin to sag as we age.
Blepharoplasty, commonly called eyelid surgery, is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries performed in the nation. It can be done on either the upper or lower eyelids, or both, to give you a more alert and refreshed appearance.
Often called a nose job, rhinoplasty can change the shape or size of your nose, resulting in a more harmonious overall appearance. Patients who have trouble breathing through their noses are also candidates for what's called functional rhinoplasty.
Patients who desire an enhanced profile or higher cheekbones can benefit from implants. An implant is often the choice for men who want a "strong" chin. Implants give your face a striking, contoured appearance that many people find attractive.
Ears that stick out from your head can draw attention away from an otherwise pleasing appearance. Cosmetic ear surgery, called otoplasty, is an option to correct misshaped ears. It can be performed on either children or adults.
Restylane® and JUVÉDERM® products are popular dermal fillers that can help turn back the clock by reducing wrinkles and giving your face a more youthful appearance. Filler injections are a good option for patients who are just beginning to notice signs of aging and aren't ready for cosmetic surgery.
VOLUMA XC is the first filler approved by the FDA to restore volume to the cheeks; it is among the most popular non-surgical procedures at our practice. It's a long-lasting treatment for patients whose cheeks have a sunken appearance.
