Chin implants can increase the size and projection of a chin that does not project in proportion with the forehead and mid-face. An implant can be used to correct a small or recessed chin often called a “weak chin”.
Laughing, smiling, frowning and squinting are things you do every single day. These actions are natural facial expressions that represent your moods and feelings and seem harmless enough – until they contribute to the formation of lines and wrinkles on your face.
To resolve this situation, minimally invasive injectable solutions can work as muscle relaxants and prevent the muscles of the face that allow you to make facial expressions from contracting, leaving the skin wrinkle-free and you with a more youthful appearance.
We offer patients an array of minimally invasive treatment options to help reduce and/or prevent the appearance of things such as wrinkles, fine lines and creases.
One of these treatments is Dysport, an FDA-approved form of the neurotoxin Botulinum toxin type A (think Botox) injected into the face to temporarily reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles.
Ladies, do you consistently wear your hair down? Or guys, do you tuck your ears in hats? Did you notice that your ears were pulled forward or appeared more prominent while wearing a protective facial covering during the pandemic? Or are you concerned about your child’s ears sticking out? Prominent ears can be a serious problem for many patients, both adults and children, and evoke feelings of upset or self-consciousness over one’s appearance. It can also be a source of teasing from peers.
But there’s a solution for prominent ears: ear-pinning surgery. The procedure, also known as otoplasty, can correct large ears or ears that stick out.
Dr. Jack Peterson is a dual-board-certified otolaryngologist (ENT) and plastic surgeon and offers patients the otoplasty procedure for individuals who have large ears or ears that stick out.
For some individuals, sagging and droopy upper or lower eyelids can mean changes to their appearance, making them look tired, sad or even mad.
These changes to your eyelids happen as part of the aging process: The upper eyelids can begin to droop with excess skin and also develop a puffy look.
Below your eyes, the lower eyelids can start to stretch and sag, develop “bags,” and give a sunken look to your cheeks.
Sagging and droopy eyelids can also block your peripheral vision and impair your ability to see. Some individuals with sagging eyelids also experience blurred vision or double vision as a result of their condition.
These situations can be treated, however, by Dr. Jack Peterson. Dr. Peterson performs upper or lower eyelid-lift surgery to help bring back the youthful appearance of your eyes and eliminate sagging and drooping skin.
The procedure, known as blepharoplasty, can help you both look and feel fantastic and more confident and revive the youthful appearance of your eyes.
Do you ever want to turn back the hands of time and erase the signs of aging and excess skin in your face and neck?

Dr. Jack Peterson is a dual-board-certified plastic surgeon specializing in cosmetic facial procedures and has the advanced anatomical knowledge and skill needed to leave you with beautiful, natural-looking results.
Dr. Peterson commonly performs forehead lift or brow lift surgery for patients wanting a more youthful look in the upper face exceeding what can be accomplished with BOTOX®. Brow lift surgery can correct a brow ptosis, or a condition where the eyebrow droops or sags. Also known as a browplasty, this plastic surgery procedure can elevate a drooping eyebrow that may obstruct vision and/or remove the deep worry lines that run across the forehead. This condition can make you look angry, stern, hostile, or tired. When Dr. Peterson raises the brow, it improves the upper field of vision and can correct visual impairment.
