But despite its popularity, people often get the wrong idea about this treatment. Here’s the truth behind some of the most common BOTOX® Cosmetic misconceptions. (more…)
Getting older is unavoidable, but that doesn’t mean you have to look your age. If you desire a more youthful, refreshed look, there is no better time than the New Year to give yourself the appearance you’ve always desired.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Smith is here to help you feel confident, comfortable, and beautiful in your own skin. Below are five safe and effective options to look younger and more refreshed.
When you think of cosmetic surgery, the time-tested facelift procedure may come to mind. While some services address a single aesthetic issue, a facelift can improve an impressive array of concerns including:
A facelift is a comprehensive way to turn back the hands of time and achieve a long-lasting youthful boost. This procedure corrects the visible signs of aging in a way that only surgical intervention can.
If you’re concerned about the appearance of your jawline and neck, then a neck lift could be a great choice. In many cases, the lower face shows signs of aging before the upper face. You may have already noticed wrinkles, a “double chin,” jowl lines, or the loose hanging skin commonly referred to as a “turkey neck.”
A neck lift is often a good solution for patients who feel that their neck area looks much older than their face. It can also be performed in conjunction with a facelift, providing a complete transformation.
You can also improve signs of aging with hyaluronic-acid based fillers. Hyaluronic acid is found naturally throughout the body, including in the skin. Its function is to attract water and increase hydration.
When Dr. Smith administers a hyaluronic acid filler like Juvéderm, it immediately improves aesthetic issues by adding volume. It reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles while improving the structure of your face.
Lips become thin and deflate with age due to a natural decline in collagen. Non-surgical lip enhancement is an excellent way to restore lost fullness to your lips. When your lips have more volume, your entire face can look younger.
Dr. Smith will create a customized treatment plan for you. Typically, he relies on Juvéderm to give his patients a plump pout. You don’t need to increase the size of your lips dramatically; a subtle increase will likely offer beautiful, natural-looking results.
Procedures such as facelifts and neck lifts require downtime after your surgery as your incisions heal, your bruises go away, and your swelling dissipates.
During the winter, it's much easier to stay indoors, lay in bed, and rest until you're able to resume normal activities. By the time spring and summer roll around, you'll be recovered and ready to show off your new look.
Looking younger begins with a private consultation with Dr. Smith. He will take the time to listen to your goals and examine your facial features. Then, he will create a comprehensive treatment plan to help you achieve your goals.

However, although the results of facelift surgery are long-lasting, the aging process still continues after your procedure. Self-care is key to maintaining your rejuvenated appearance. (more…)
Do you feel like those last few pounds aren’t stuck on your belly, they’re lingering underneath your chin instead? No matter how dialed in your diet and exercise habits are, you can’t seem to shed the dreaded double chin. It may not be your fault, however. For many of Dr. Smith’s patients, submental fullness is genetic and it may be there regardless of what you do.That’s right—when it comes to facial cosmetic surgery, it’s all in the eyes. Believe it or not, eyelid surgery continues to be the most popular facial procedure among women according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons’ annual statistics report. In 2016 alone, more than 178,000 women improved their appearance by getting their eyes done. However, it’s not just the ladies who are benefiting from eyelid enhancement. Eyelid surgery was also the guys’ second most favored facial surgery last year, only behind rhinoplasty. All of this adds up to over one million people having their eyes rejuvenated with an eyelid surgery in just the last five years!
