A facelift reduces wrinkles and sagging skin on the face and neck caused by aging or weight loss. The procedure removes excess skin, tightens the underlying muscles, and redrapes the skin in a higher position. The results go beyond what can be expected from wrinkle-fighting injections like Botox. Different types of lifts, such as cheek lifts or mini lifts, address specific concerns.

New Life at 69!!!!! - Rockville, MD

My motivations to choose facial plastic surgery was the failure of creams, lotions, and gels, over the years, to repair and dissipate signs of aging.

Wow!!! - Bethesda, MD

I sorely needed a face lift, but was scared. Scared of having elective surgery that as my internist said, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” But, my face - in its sagging neck and lined lower face - impeded my ability to work - whether in fact, or my own projection. Dr. Richards team brought... READ MORE

Happy at 71! - Puerto Vallarta, MX

At age 71 I was spending the winter in Puerto Vallarta and, after four wonderful tours to places in Mexico and Cuba, I thought, why not try to research plastic surgeons?
