5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

Excellent Results! - Fort Myers, FL

Dr. Flaharty did a great job on my upper eyelids. I look incredibly refreshed but not shocked and surprised. I never felt rushed, he takes the time to answer all your questions and explain the procedure.

Great Surgeon - Fort Myers, FL

I had a face lift -- an eye brow lift, a chin/nexk procedure and a cheek lift. You cannot see my scars, I get constant compliments about looking younger, looking healthier, or about how lovely my skin is. No one thinks of a face lift, so I look like myself. Dr. Flaherty is an artist as well as a terrific surgeon. He takes his time with you. He really cares, as does his staff. It would...

I Am 57 but Look So Much Younger After Fillers - Fort Myers, FL

I noticed my face started looking tired. But I had hardly any wrinkles. I decided to see Dr Flaharty and he was honest about not needing Botox on certain area but suggested filler in my cheeks. Well the results are wonderful!!! I love the way my cheeks look now. I am told I look very refreshed and my skin looks soft as well. I highly recommend Dr. Flaharty

46 Year Old Male - Fort Myers, FL

I am a 46 year old male in very good shape having been in sports and lifting since my high school days. No matter what I have done, or how clean my diet, I can not get rid of the tire around my stomach. I am lean everywhere but there. It isn't horrible, but given the effort I put in, I was simply tired of seeing it. As such, I decided to give CoolScupting a try. I am only 11+ days from...

Wonderful Doctor and Staff - Fort Myers, FL

I looked at my face and knew that it needed to be refreshed. I like to look healthy, sagging skin is not going to produce a healthy fresh look. I had three opinions, It did not take much time to decided that Dr Flaharty was the best doctor to help me get the look that I wanted. He talked to me about procedures that other doctors had not mentioned. He had my complete confidence. The surgial...

5 out of 5 stars Lower Face Lift

lower facelift -Fort Myers, FL

At age 70 I was unhappy with my wrinkles and the way my jaw line looked. I am in a senior tap dance group and wanted to make myself more presentable when on stage. One week later, I am so pleased with the results. No pain- minor bruising- The only discomfort I have is making sure I do not sleep with my face in the pillow. 3 months from now Dr. Flaharty will see if I need more artefill. I am...

All About Wrinkles

Wrinkles are lines that form in the skin. We all get them as we age; they are part of the normal aging process. In order to understand the treatments for wrinkles, it is helpful to understand the two main types of facial wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles form as a result of muscle motion—including the way we express ourselves—as well as from habitual movement, as is the case of vertical lip lines in smokers and crow’s feet in tennis players who often squint in...

Restoring Volume for a More Youthful You

We used to think aging was all about wrinkles and laxity and thus a facelift was all about tightening and lifting. Aging is also very much about loss of volume in the face. As we age, we get more hollow and sunken. When we add volume back into the face with fillers, results can be astounding. The goal is a more youthful appearance, but it should also be soft, because youthful beauty is soft. It’s not tight and it certainly isn’t flat, hollow or deflated. Using a...
