The facelift can be performed today using a variety of techniques. Dr. Stevens tailors the procedure to meet the individual patient’s needs. Many options in facelift surgery allow for minimal downtime while still providing improved facial contour through the re-suspension of underlying muscles and the removal of excess skin. The facelift can dramatically improve an aged appearance in the facial skin, jawline and neck.

Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is performed to improve the signs of aging in the eye area. This surgery can remove excess skin of the upper eyelids and fatty pockets of the lower eyelids. With his great understanding of the mechanics of the eye and fine-tuned skills, Dr. Stevens is an expert in eye surgery.

The endoscopic browlift is one of Dr. Stevens’ favorite surgeries to perform due to its dramatic results. This surgery improves the appearance of a heavy brow, refreshes the eye area, and smoothes crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles, all with minimal downtime.

As one of the most personalized of cosmetic procedures, rhinoplasty can alter the nose in a variety of ways. The appearance of the nose may be improved by increasing of decreasing the overall size, changing the angle, altering the tip, or correcting a hump. Rhinoplasty can also be performed to open blocked nasal passages or correct an injury or congenital deformity.

Dr. Stevens’ signature Active Lift is an in-office facelift technique used to tighten and elevate the facial structures as well as the neck. Local anesthesia is used and the total healing time is about half that of a traditional facelift.
