5 out of 5 stars Sculptra Aesthetic
I went to Dr Hass complaining of facial volume loss and forehead wrinkling. She was very knowledgeable about the pros and cons of potential products and explained to me how we would achieve the most natural look without compromising change. I ended up getting Dysport and Sculptra Injections. Her injection technique for the Sculptra was incredibly painless and methodical. I could tell she...
"When I chose to narrow my training to ophthalmic plastic surgery it was because I saw an exciting and rapidly changing field of surgery. The attention to detail and technologies available combine with my artistry and help me give patients the beautiful and natural results they desire.

Circles under the eyes cannot be fully eliminated. This pigmentation is often genetic and there is not much you can do without a good concealer. However, there are some options to help. Age contributes to some of the shadows since this skin thins as we get older often exposing tiny blood vessels. Sometimes IPL laser can offer minor improvement and a chemical peel may tighten skin somewhat. Another avenue may be surgical with a lower lid eye lift. This may help eliminate bags which are...
We all know what an older face looks like, but we can’t always identify what makes it look older. Even in a lifted, injected face, there can be diffuse volume loss that contributes significantly to an aged appearance, especially in the temples and cheeks. Sculptra®Aesthetic (injectable poly-L-lactic acid) is used to address these areas. Sculptra®Aesthetic consists of a pulverized form of dissolvable suture. As such, it stimulates your body’s natural responses to build collagen while disso...
When injectable facial fillers are done correctly, most women (and men, because many men are now using fillers as well) will not get the trout mouth or puckered lip look. But, unfortunately the temptation and desire to eliminate every wrinkle can result in overfilling an area and creating distortion. For example when just a top lip is filled and the bottom is ignored an imbalanced look can occur creating an unnatural look. Some patients have a strong desire to achieve a certain look so...
We recommend repeating microdermabrasion or light chemical peels every 3 months. This will help your skin look healthy and exfoliate the top layers of skin for a pretty complexion. BOTOX® is usually repeated every 4-6 months and the injectable filler products for the face vary according to type used and location injected. The range to repeat filler injections can be as short as every 6 months (for just lip enhancement) or up to every 1-2 years for other areas. For cosmetic facial surgical ...
Oculoplastic surgeons are board certified in ophthalmology (eye surgery) and have completed specialty training in plastic surgery of the eye area, upper face, eye sockets and tear duct system. This training has given me the keen awareness for the nuances required to give patients a refreshed and naturally shaped eyelid, while also protecting the eye's health. While I focus my practice in oculoplastics, I do maintain my board certification in ophthalmology and I'm an active member of the...
