What Is Facial Plastic Surgery, Exactly? 

Facial plastic surgery is any surgical procedure intended to alter the appearance of the forehead, brows, cheekbones, chin, ears, jawline, and lips. Neck-related procedures are also typically included in this category. Although plastic surgery’s primary goal is to improve aesthetic appearance, some procedures may also improve functionality, e.g., rhinoplasty.  

There are many good reasons to consider having facial plastic surgery, including the following: 

  • Genetics-Related – To fix a troublesome facial feature present since birth. 
  • Reconstructive – To repair damage to the face caused by an injury or severe illness. 
  • Asymmetry – Some facial features may appear asymmetrical, and patients may desire greater symmetry for aesthetic appeal. 
  • Functional Deficit – To improve functional problems, such as difficulty breathing from a deviated septum (rhinoplasty) or vision impairment caused by very low eyebrows (brow lift). 
  • Rejuvenation – To address the signs of aging, such as sagging loose skin. 

NYC plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas W. Loeb performs facial plastic surgery to include – face lifts, brow lifts, neck lifts and other facial cosmetic procedures in his private office suite on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.

You deserve to show the world your best face. Age, heredity, and other factors can take their toll, no matter how well you take care of yourself.  Replenish your natural beauty and restore your youthful appearance with the many facial rejuvenation options offered by Dr. Loeb in New York City.

Dr. Loeb also offers non-invasive procedures for the face including:

Dr. Loeb offers a full menu of facial plastic surgery procedures, and his track record of patient satisfaction remains excellent. 

Face Lift

A face lift eliminates prominent wrinkles, and removes excess fat and sagging skin, giving the face a more toned, youthful overall appearance. Facelifts are some of the most popular plastic surgeries among patients who have noticed signs of aging. In his private surgical suite in New York City, Dr. Loeb will tighten the muscles underlying the skin, turning back the clock on the effects of gravity and natural aging. In many cases, patients choose to have a face lift performed as part of a suite of procedures, which may include an eye lift (blepharoplasty), neck lift, or brow lift, among others.

Neck, Mini, or “Short Scar” Lift

For patients who exhibit hanging folds of skin in the neck region, or conspicuous bands of fat beneath the chin, a neck lift restores a more youthful, toned neck contour, while also accentuating the jawline. A mini lift, also known as a short scar face lift, is an alternative to a traditional facelift. It’s a less invasive option that addresses areas of concern on the bottom third of the face and the neck. A mini lift can address issues like platysmal banding, jowls, skin laxity, and loose skin on the neck. 


If you’re interested in results similar to a facelift but aren’t ready to undergo surgery, a threadlift is often a great option. It’s a non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure that involves inserting thin, medical-grade sutures under the skin to lift and tighten the facial skin. The results can last up to three years. 

Eye Lift (Blepharoplasty)

Bags under the eyes, as well as drooping skin, puffiness, and prominent creases in the eye region can all be eliminated with an eye lift procedure. An eye lift, or blepharoplasty, is performed to lift drooping upper eyelids and sagging lower eyelids. Dr. Loeb may remove excess skin and fat deposits in the area. An eye lift can make you look years younger and may even improve vision if drooping eyelids interfere with your eyesight.  A blepharoplasty is often performed by Dr. Loeb in his NYC surgical suite in combination with other restorative procedures such as laser skin resurfacing, a brow lift, and skin bleaching to counteract dark patches underneath the eyes.

Nose Surgery (Rhinoplasty)

A rhinoplasty, or nose job, is done to sculpt the nose and create proportions that are symmetrical with the overall proportions of the face and reduces, refines, or otherwise re-shapes the nose. Patients choose to have nose surgery performed for a variety of reasons—to remove a conspicuous hump or tip in the nose, to fix a deformity resulting from an accident, or to de-emphasize the prominence of the nose and create a more pleasing balance amongst other facial features. Dr. Loeb emphasizes natural-looking results aligned with his patients’ aesthetic or ethnic heritage. And since he typically makes the incisions within the nostrils, the surgery doesn’t leave a visible scar. 

Revision Rhinoplasty 

Nose jobs are notoriously difficult; not all plastic surgeons can create natural-looking noses. Dr. Loeb is often requested to fix the mistakes made in other rhinoplasty surgeries. Revision rhinoplasties are technically challenging, so turning to an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon is crucial. 

Teen Rhinoplasty 

Plastic surgery isn’t always appropriate for teens who are still developing, but this isn’t applicable in the case of teen rhinoplasties. The nose completes its development far sooner than other parts of the body. If your teen is struggling with low self-esteem and poor self-confidence due to an irregularly shaped or sized nose, rhinoplasty can be an excellent option. 

Face and Neck Liposuction

Liposuction is commonly used in areas such as the hips and stomach, but it’s also a good option for the face and neck. Face and neck liposuction removes excess bulges and lumps of fat from the cheeks, chin, jowls, and neck, giving the face a slimmer, contoured, younger appearance. If you’re dissatisfied by the appearance of excess fat in these areas, then face and neck liposuction can help you get a more defined look. Dr. Loeb places small incisions in inconspicuous spots on the face and neck, through which thin straw-like tubes are inserted. A suction vacuum is then used to extract fat cells. Patients often choose facial liposuction as a complementary procedure together with a face lift, neck lift, or brow lift.

Ear Surgery

The ears usually aren’t the most noticeable part of the head—unless they are abnormally shaped, protruding, or oversized. Individuals with oversized or excessively protruding ears can become self-conscious, socially withdrawn, and lose confidence because of their perceived abnormality. Ear plasty, or otoplasty, reduces, re-shapes, and re-folds the ears so that they no longer dominate a person’s face. The surgery, performed in Dr. Loeb’s private office suite in New York City, entails tiny incisions behind the ears, through which Dr. Loeb is able to manipulate and shift the ear cartilage to give the patient their preferred look. Dr. Loeb not only performs otoplasty on adults, but often on children starting at the age of 6 and up.

Buccal Fat Removal

Even if you’re in good shape, you may have excess fat deposits on the face. Full, puffy cheeks can detract from an otherwise pleasing facial contour. Buccal fat removal may be the right choice for patients who want to give their face a sleeker, slimmer look, and give more definition to their jawline. The surgery is perfomed via a small incision in the mouth, after which fat from the “buccal pad” of the cheek is extracted. Dr. Loeb performs buccal fat removal to reduce the size of the cheeks and create a sleeker facial profile.

Lip Augmentation

Some people are born with thin lips, while others develop lip thinning over time due to aging or smoking. Lip augmentation adds volume and shape to the lips through injectable fillers or implants. Patients choose to undergo lip augmentation due to issues such as thin lips, lines due to aging, asymmetrical lips, or lips that have been damaged due to injury. Though recovery time with implants is longer than with fillers (which may have a collagen or hyaluronic acid base, or which may involve fat transfers from other areas of the patient’s body), the results with implants are permanent. Dr. Loeb can enhance your lips by performing lip augmentation with injectable fillers (non-surgical) or lip implants (surgical).


PermaLip is a lip augmentation procedure that uses implants rather than injectable fillers. Dr. Loeb will create tiny incisions to insert appropriately sized lip implants. In contrast to temporary fillers, lip implants are a permanent solution to thin lips. This procedure can be performed under local anesthesia. 

Cheek Augmentation

Age, heredity, and other factors can mean that some people have reduced volume in the cheeks, which can negatively affect the facial contour and the symmetry of the face. The shape and volume of cheeks can be augmented, and their definition and angularity dramatically transformed, through injectable fillers (such as Restalyne or Juvederm) or through implant surgery. The effect produced by fillers can last for anywhere between 4 months and 2 years, while cheek implants are permanent. Fat transfer, involving grafts prepared from fat cells taken from other areas of the body, may also be used to contour or amplify the cheek region.

Chin Augmentation

For patients who have a recessive chin or overly rounded jawline, chin augmentation can provide a more distinct definition to the face and create a more proportionate, aesthetically pleasing appearance. Small incisions are placed in the mouth or under the chin, after which the silicone implant is placed directly in front of the jaw bone. To achieve the best overall result, NYC plastic surgeon Dr. Loeb may perform this procedure in combination with others such as cheek augmentation, face lift, neck lift, facial liposuction, or rhinoplasty.

Brow Lift

A sagging, wrinkled forehead and loose-hanging eyebrows can be returned to a more youthful firmness and freshness with a forehead or brow lift. The most common way for Dr. Loeb to perform a brow lift is to make small incisions on the scalp, through the hairline. Horizontal lines on the forehead are then smoothed out as a result of elevating the skin and underlying muscles. Excessive skin or fat on the upper eyelid may also be treated by an eye lift, or blepharoplasty.

Nasolabial Fold Surgery 

The nasolabial folds, also known as “smile lines,” extend from the bottom of the nose toward each corner of the mouth. Some people have deep nasolabial folds that may not respond well to dermal fillers. For these patients, nasolabial fold surgery offers a solution. 

Fat Transfer

With aging, certain areas of the face can lose their youthful volume and become thin, creased, and hollow-looking. Fat transfer is a procedure by which fat cells are extracted from alternate areas of the body, such as the hips or buttocks, and harvested into “fat grafts” that can then be implanted into problem areas in the face (such as the nasolabial fold, the transition area between the nose and lower face) and elsewhere. These natural fat cells act as an injectable filler that smooths out wrinkled or creased areas and re-creates a fuller, more youthful complexion. Extracted fat cells can be frozen and stored for future use, as needed.


Radiesse is a new injectable filler used to eliminate unsightly lines and folds in the nose, lips, chin, and cheeks. The advantage of Radiesse is that its results last longer than many other fillers, usually for 1-2 years. During a quick visit to his private office on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, Dr. Loeb injects the filler just under the skin surface; in many cases, a second treatment, utilizing only 25% of the initial amount, is required three months after the first.

Restylane / Juvederm

Restylane and Juvederm are the gold standard of injectable fillers, which restore volume to areas of the face that have thinned and wrinkled, replenishing the skin to give it a smooth, fresh, youthful look. Both Restylane and Juvederm are natural, biodegradable, and non-animal based. Dr. Loeb injects them just under the skin near the lips and nose, on the lower eyelid, or on the jowl or chin. The rejuvenating effect of these fillers usually lasts between 4-6 months.


Fractora is a fractional skin resurfacing system that uses radio frequency waves to stimulate collagen development, eliminate fine wrinkles, and remove pigment irregularities, acne scars, or excessive redness of the skin. Fractora can be used on any area of the face, including the upper and lower eyelids, as well as cheeks, mouth, and neck. At his Fifth Avenue office in NYC, Dr. Loeb administers the radio frequencies through small pins placed directly against the skin. Outer layers of skin are ablated, and new skin growth is stimulated.
