Facial plastic surgery procedures can correct, refine, enhance or rejuvenate your facial features. Many people have features that they dislike or feel self-conscious about. Changing such features through plastic surgery can bring a more harmonious facial appearance, as well as a sense of greater self-confidence. Dr. Howrigan is a skilled and experienced surgeon who can perform a number of rejuvenation procedures with ease.
With aging, gravity, sun exposure, stress and the environment, wrinkles and sagging jowls can gradually develop on your face. A facelift can address these changes and make you look years younger. You’ll look like yourself, only better. Through small incisions, the deeper layers of facial tissue are lifted and supported, which makes the facial skin smoother, tighter and younger-looking.

Even after a good night’s sleep, your eyes may still look tired. Eyelid surgery (Blepharoplasty) can correct excess skin at the upper eyelids and bags at the lower eyelids, erasing that tired look and helping to achieve a fresher, more youthful appearance. The procedure is carried out through precise incisions in the natural eyelid creases. Excess fat and skin is then removed.

Gradually, deep wrinkles and vertical frown lines appear, giving your face an unintended sad or angry look. The forehead lift, or brow lift, results in a younger, friendlier look. After surgery and recovery, the eye area appears more youthful and vibrant.

Prominent ears can be tucked in so that they no longer attract attention. The outpatient surgery is carried out under sedation. Incisions are placed on the backside of the ear where they are not noticeable. A bandage is placed over the ears for one week to protect the surgical changes. The result is a natural, balanced ear appearance.
