How we choose your treatment
There are so many new and different treatments available now. Even more fascinating
- there are also different ways to perform each treatment. Given this great variety, the surgeon's
techniques have become as unique as the treatments and the right combination can produce stunning
results. We use these four factors as a basis for choosing the right path for you:
Safe: Safety is always first: Which procedure offers the least risk
for the greatest gain?
High Impact: We take pride in creating real change that meets the patient's
Natural Appearing: You will look fresher and younger but no one will know how.
Lasting: Results that provide a lasting effect over time.
Our combination of education, communication and unique treatments results in extremely
rewarding results for you.
Are you interested in looking more refreshed or less tired? Or would you rather truly
look younger? How much downtime can you afford? How willing are you to undergo surgery? Perhaps you
would prefer a non-surgical treatment?
The beauty of today's anti-aging treatments is both their wide variety and the surgeon's
ability to perform them in unique ways. The choices are almost infinite and now, more than ever, you can
control your results based on your wants, needs and budget. These days, there is literally something for
The key with anti-aging treatments is picking the right one for you. Facial aging is a
complex process. Spas and other non-surgical facilities often encourage repetitive, non-surgical
treatments when surgical treatments would work better and perhaps even cost less in the long run. Also,
some surgical centers encourage surgical treatments although non-surgical techniques would meet your
needs. At Carmel Valley Facial Plastic Surgery, we take a holistic approach and consider all of the
options when consultant with you. You have a unique needs and aging issues and deserve a unique
approach that will make you happiest with your results.
What causes the appearance of aging?
There are four components of our face that are undergoing changes all at the same time.
These components can be aging at different rates and need to be addressed directly to achieve a natural
and effective rejuvenation.
The four components are:
Skin The skin begins to thin, wrinkle, and become discolored as a result
of genetics, time, and environmental factors such as sun exposure and smoking.
Volume During youth our faces have a soft fullness that relates to the
thickness of the fat layer under our skin. As we age, the fat begins to thin, leading to hollowing under
our eyes and cheeks for example. The face looses its soft fullness and this can be one of the most
telling signs of aging.
Sagging This is what most people think about when they think of aging.
The loss of a crisp jawline and youthful contour of the neck is a major concern for most prospective
Facial Bones With time we see a loss of bone, especially in the region
of our cheek bones, and chin. The bones of our face serve to hold up our skin and soft tissue. As the
bones lose fullness, the chin and cheeks begin to drop, leading to further impression of sagging.
At Carmel Valley Facial Plastic Surgery, we discuss all four of these factors with you
to develop a plan that is consistent with your goals. By having the ability to perform the entire range
of both non-surgical and surgical facial procedures
, we have the unique
and unbiased ability to counsel and guide you to the best choice to achieve the best results.
Rhinoplasty and Revision Rhinoplasty

details of a beautiful person's nose. You only remember them as beautiful because their nose is
