There are many things to consider if you need or desire a surgical procedure. This need may be secondary to a medical condition or cancer, trauma or injury, or the aging process. Our surgeons approach your needs with an individualized plan of care to support your desired outcomes in a safe and effective manner. Our goal is to help you feel good about yourself on both the inside and the outside by restoring both cosmesis and function.
Our team offers both the newest techniques and technologies and the benefit of more than 90 years combined experience including thousands of surgical cases. Our surgeons are experienced in the following surgical facial plastic treatments provided within our area healthcare facilities as well as our state-of-the-art Cosmetic Surgery & Rejuvenation Center located at the TriHealth Pavilion:

- Otoplasty (commonly known as Ear pinning) — Surgery to reshape the cartilage of the ears so they protrude less
- Skin Surface Procedures — Non invasive or minimally invasive procedures using lasers, chemical peels, and/ or micro needling to improve the skin’s appearance from sun damage, rosacea, surgical scarring and more
- Facial Reconstruction — Surgery to reconstruct defects in the head and neck from prior surgery, injury, or disease, including reconstruction resulting from cancer surgery, scar revision, repair of facial fractures and other traumatic injuries, and correction of congenital abnormalities.
Things to consider when contemplating Facial Plastic surgery:
- What does the surgery involve? Are their alternatives to surgery?
- How experienced is the surgeon in performing these procedures?
- What can I expect of my appearance right after surgery and I how will my recovery be?
- How long will it take to return to work? Normal activities?
- What can I do to prepare for surgery?
- Does my insurance cover this surgery? Because some facial plastic treatments are optional, it’s important to understand your medical coverage before any treatment. Insurance will usually cover reconstructive plastic surgery, but it is important to check with your insurance company. If it is not covered by your insurance company, understand your payment options. We offer multiple options for payment.
