Your face is the first thing people look at when they see you, and the most defining feature of your entire body.
It is important to take care of it and treat it with high regard. People consider facial rejuvenation procedures for a variety of reasons and at a variety of ages and stages in their lives. For some it is to reverse signs of aging, for others, it is to prevent aging signs before they happen, and for others, it is to correct features that hinder their confidence.

Facial rejuvenation procedures offered at The Kaplan Center
For many people, the eyelids are the first part of the body in which signs of aging are visible. Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is a great option for rejuvenating drooping and sagging in the eyelids caused by aging. Dr. Kaplan gives patients a more rested and youthful appearance by removing the fatty tissue and skin that causes the eyes to look old and tired. Not only does eyelid surgery rejuvenate the appearance of your eyes aesthetically, but it can also improve your vision if excess skin on your eyelids has started to droop over your peripheral vision. Dr. Kaplan offers both surgical and non-surgical options for blepharoplasty.
Facial Fat Transfer
Wanting to rejuvenate your face without the use of filler products or implants? During a facial fat transfer, fat is removed from a part of the body with liposuction and is then injected into the face. Facial fat transfers create a more youthful appearance and can correct scars.
No matter how diligent you are with your skincare routine, you eventually reach an age in which the signs of aging on your face are no longer correctable through non-surgical methods. If you are noticing excess skin, sagging, creases, and wrinkles on your face, you may be a great candidate for a face lift. Some of Dr. Kaplan’s patients have left our offices claiming to look 10 years younger from a face lift. A facelift is a surgical procedure that involves adjusting the tissues and muscles under the skin of the face to promote a more tightened, youthful appearance. Dr. Kaplan offers different types of facelifts depending on your specific needs. Dr. Kaplan offers both surgical and non-surgical options for a facelift, as well as options that are more tailored to the part of your face that you are looking to improve.
A neck lift, or rhytidectomy, improves signs of aging in the jawline and neck such as the jowls caused by excess fat, loose neck skin, and muscle banding in the neck. By removing excess skin and fat in the neck and around the jawline, the neck lift promotes a more youthful appearance and a more defined jawline. If you’re looking to get rid of your “turkey waddle” or double chin, you may be a great candidate for a neck lift. Neck lifts are often done in conjunction with a face lift to ensure the face and neck match in appearance. Dr. Kaplan offers both surgical and non-surgical neck lifts.
If you have a low, heavy brow or furrowed lines above the nose, Dr. Kaplan can help you achieve a more alert and refreshed appearance with a brow lift. You may also notice your eyebrows migrating downward as you age. A brow lift not only lifts your brow but can also smooth wrinkles and frown lines. Dr. Kaplan performs brow lifts through a variety of techniques depending on each patient’s needs.
As we age, the space between our nose and upper lip becomes longer. By enhancing the appearance of the upper lip, the lip lift promotes better lip symmetry, a youthful lip contour, permanent lip enhancement results, and a reduction of the space between the upper lip and the nose. Adults of all ages concerned with signs of facial aging around the mouth area are great candidates for a lip lift.
Are you wanting to reshape your lips? Lip reduction is a surgical procedure that involves removing skin tissue in the upper or lower lips, and some cases both. The goal of lip reduction is to make the mouth more proportional to other facial features.
Do you feel your nose is too large in proportion to your face? Or are you insecure about a bump or odd shape on your nose? Rhinoplasties can correct the size, symmetry, and shape of your nose and can even target long, drooping tips. Rhinoplasties are not only for aesthetic purposes; they can also be done to fix distorted noses that have been broken or injured. A septoplasty, which is a type of rhinoplasty procedure, can improve breathing issues by correcting deviated septums. The rhinoplasty reshapes, reconstructs, restores, and enhances the nose. The goal of the rhinoplasty is tailored to your specific needs as it is a highly individualized procedure. If you want to build upon your natural beauty and rejuvenate the contour of your nose, you may be the perfect candidate for a rhinoplasty.
Buccal Fat Removal
Buccal fat removal, also known as cheek reduction, is a surgical procedure in which Dr. Kaplan reduces fullness in the lower cheeks by removing fat pads. Buccal fat removal leaves no visible scars as Dr. Kaplan creates a small incision inside the mouth. If you want a more sculpted facial contour and feel insecure about fat in your lower cheeks, you may be a candidate for buccal fat removal.
Are you looking to reshape your ears? Do you feel that the position of your ears makes you unattractive? An otoplasty may help boost your confidence by improving the symmetry and placement of your ears. Otoplasty, or ear-pinning, reduces the appearance of the ears by removing excess skin and surplus cartilage.
In search of a non-surgical, natural way to tighten your skin and restore lost collagen? You may be a great candidate for a thread lift! Using dissolvable sutures, Dr. Kaplan pulls the skin tight to fight sagging skin and wrinkles in the face and neck. Aside from tightening, threads can also stimulate collagen production for longer-lasting results. Dr. Kaplan uses threads to perform various treatments, including:
- Mini brow lift
- Full brow lift
- Mid-face lift
- Jawline and jowl treatment
- Skin texture resurfacing
If you have not quite reached the age in which a facelift is the only option to smooth out wrinkles and lift the skin on your face, you are probably an excellent candidate for facial fillers. Facial fillers, or dermal fillers, are typically injected around your eyes, nose, and mouth. As you age, your body loses its collagen, causing skin laxity and volume loss. Facial fillers stimulate collagen, tighten the skin, and create a more youthful appearance, and results are visible right away. Dermal fillers target static wrinkles or wrinkles that are visible even when you are resting your face.
If you’re not quite at the facelift age yet, but feel insecure about fine lines and wrinkles, you may be a candidate for neurotoxin injections. Neurotoxins such as Dysport, Botox, Xeomin, and Jeuveau temporarily reduce fine lines such as frown lines, smile lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines by blocking nerve receptors in the muscle. Neurotoxins target dynamic wrinkles or wrinkles that appear when you change your facial expression.
Looking to lessen the appearance of scars, fine lines, wrinkles, large pores, and other skin conditions? Microneedling with PRP may be the best option to smooth out and possibly even out the tone of your skin. By punching small holes into the skin on your neck, face, or chest, Dr. Kaplan performs microneedling to stimulate skin restoration. Your platelet-rich plasma (PRP) may be directed to the same region(s), helping cells heal and allowing the skin to grow new cells.
Bellafill with Subcision
Looking to treat stubborn acne scarring and change your life by boosting your self-esteem? The Kaplan Center offers Bellafill with subcision to treat acne scarring. A needle is inserted beneath the skin to release tethered fibrotic strands that block the skin from rising and cause the appearance of acne scars. Bellafill is injected to add volume to the depressions of acne scars and bring the scars up to the level of your skin, reducing their visibility.
