Face or Facial Contouring Procedures
Facial surgery or contouring is performed to reshape structures in the head and neck — typically the nose, ears, chin, cheekbones and neckline. People seeking this surgery may be motivated by a desire to reconstruct the face after an injury or disease or to change a feature present from birth.
The first step in considering facial plastic surgery is a meeting with a surgeon to discuss goals, alternatives, and potential risks and benefits of various procedures. Once you and the surgeon have decided on a course of treatment, your surgery is scheduled. Surgery may be done on an inpatient or outpatient basis, depending on your situation. You’ll receive follow-up care from the surgery team.
These are some of the procedures we perform.
Lift and neck lift are among the most popular cosmetic procedures and are commonly performed together to smooth and firm the facial skin to provide a refreshed, youthful look. These procedures are invasive techniques and require the use of incisions to make the appropriate corrections to the face.
Eyelid surgery also known as blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure that’s designed to rejuvenate the eyes by getting rid of the excess loose skin that tends to develop with age. The procedure involves the removal of excess skin and fatty deposits that accumulate in and around the eyes. The underlying muscle structures will also be tightened and lifted to give the eyes a more vibrant and alert appearance.
Rhinoplasty is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures performed around the world. This surgical technique is designed to improve the shape and size of the nose. It is commonly used on patients who want to correct an asymmetrical nose and improve certain aspects of it, including the nasal tip, nostril size, and bumps.

Facelift & Neck Lift
Experience a transformative journey with facelift and neck lift procedures. Our surgical techniques are tailored to tighten and redefine facial contours, reducing the appearance of sagging skin and wrinkles. These procedures aim to create a more balanced facial profile with natural-looking results.
The facelift targets sagging skin and wrinkles, particularly around the cheeks, jowls, and jawline. By delicately repositioning the underlying tissues, we can restore a more youthful appearance.
The neck often reveals the first signs of aging, with loose skin and muscle bands contributing to an aged look. The neck lift procedure aims to address these concerns, sculpting taut and graceful neck contours. Through tiny incisions made behind the ears and under the chin, underlying tissues are tightened and excess skin is removed. This results in a rejuvenated neck profile that harmonizes beautifully with your facial features.
Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, addresses sagging eyelid skin and puffiness. Our precise techniques involve the removal of excess skin and fat, as well as muscle tightening when necessary.
Drooping upper eyelids can contribute to a tired and aged look. Upper eyelid surgery involves the removal of excess skin and, if needed, fat deposits. Puffy bags under the eyes can be corrected with lower eyelid surgery. By repositioning or removing excess fat and tightening the skin, a smoother and more youthful undereye area is achieved.
For more comprehensive rejuvenation, a combination of upper and lower eyelid surgery can be performed. This approach addresses multiple concerns simultaneously, resulting in a harmonious and natural-looking transformation.
Rhinoplasty, the art of nose reshaping, brings balance and harmony to your facial features. Through skillful adjustments to the bone, soft tissue, and cartilage, we refine the size and shape of the nose, enhancing both form and function. Whether you seek a reduction in size, a refined tip, or improved symmetry, rhinoplasty is the ideal cosmetic option for you.
Rhinoplasty isn’t just about aesthetics—it can also improve breathing and correct structural issues. A deviated septum, a nasal valve collapse, and other functional concerns can be addressed concurrently, ensuring both form and function are optimized.
Neck contouring focuses on enhancing the neck’s profile by addressing excess skin, sagging muscles, and stubborn fat. This procedure involves making discreet incisions to access and sculpt the underlying tissues, resulting in sleeker and more defined neck contours that complement your overall facial aesthetics. Through discreetly placed incisions, excess skin and fat are removed and muscles are tightened in the neck area.
A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, is a precise surgical procedure that can rejuvenate your appearance by addressing sagging eyebrows and forehead wrinkles. During the surgery, Dr. Atencio makes discreet incisions, often hidden within the hairline, to access the underlying brow tissues. Through meticulous techniques, the brow is elevated and repositioned, smoothing out wrinkles and restoring eyebrow definition for a more youthful appearance.
Fat Transfer to Face
Fat transfer to the face, also known as facial fat grafting, is a sophisticated procedure that utilizes your body’s own natural fat to enhance and rejuvenate your facial features. Excess fat will be harvested from donor areas such as the abdomen or thighs. It will then be purified and strategically reinjected into areas of the face that have lost volume or need refinement.
Fat transfer offers a longer-lasting solution to volume loss and facial rejuvenation than dermal fillers can provide. Additionally, because the transferred fat is from your own body, there is minimal risk of allergic reactions or rejection.
