Dr. Yamamoto’s long-standing philosophy with facelift and necklift procedures is to provide a more youthful look while keeping results very natural. He wants you, your family and friends to see a more refreshed, energetic version of you. They will notice you look great, but will not notice the surgery itself. You don’t have to worry about the over-pulled, over-filled look.

A facelift can give you smoother cheeks and a tighter jawline while reducing the appearance of wrinkles and folds. A necklift can tighten sagging neck skin and remove excess fat for a more youthful look.

Sometimes, individuals desire a change to their nose, whether to make it look more refined, or improve the way it functions. All noses are very personal, and therefore Dr. Yamamoto carefully creates individualized plans for each rhinoplasty he performs.

Rhinoplasty can alter the cartilage, bone, and soft tissue of the nose. Some people get the procedure to straighten the nasal bridge, remove a hump, correct obstructed breathing passages, or alter the nose’s tip. Others get it to reduce or enlarge the nose, correct it after an injury, or decrease or increase the nostrils’ size.

A very common occurrence with facial aging is developing excess skin of the upper eyelids. Too much skin in this area leads to loss of the natural eyelid crease. This can make it difficult to put on eye shadow. A significant amount of excess skin can weigh down your eyelashes and even contribute to obstructing a portion of your vision. An Upper Blepharoplasty is performed to remove the laxity of the eyelid skin or to unweight the upper eyelids.

A current trend in facial plastic surgery is repair of gauged earlobes. When the time comes that you no longer want to wear your ear gauges, the earlobe skin can be left sagging and floppy. In order to regain the curvature of your ear, a gauged earlobe repair is performed to reposition the skin and reconstruct the earlobe.

Treatment for skin aging includes skin resurfacing. While there are many treatments to resurface and rejuvenate the facial skin, laser peels have become the gold standard for both being highly effective and providing the best overall aesthetic results. This treatment can be performed on the entire face as well as the décolletage.

We also offer Tattoo Removal, Long Pulse Yag laser, Intense Pulse Light Therapy (IPL), Erbium Yag laser and Laser Hair Removal

Whether you desire rounder cheeks, fuller lips, or want to get rid of those dark circles under your eyes, facial fillers have revolutionized how Dr. Yamamoto treats those trouble spots. Dr. Yamamoto has extensive training in the use of many different kinds of facial filler products. In addition, he has developed a “needleless injection” technique with micro-cannulas for many of his injections.

Neuromodulators, most commonly known as ‘botox,’ these products help prevent and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the face. Whether you want to look more refreshed in wedding photos or at your upcoming special event, or just want to maintain the youthful look of your face, Botox is a safe and easy way to prevent those fine lines.

When injected, Botox blocks signals from the nerves to the targeted muscles, preventing them from contracting. This allows the muscles to relax, softening wrinkles. Botox is used to treat crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines.

Facelift and mini facelift procedures revitalize the appearance of the face by tightening loose tissues. The mini facelift is a variation that creates subtler changes and provides a faster recovery process.

Facial reconstruction is required after skin cancer removal when a gap is left in the skin. This procedure restores a more natural appearance to the area. Scar revision procedures can also be performed.

We perform PRP hair loss treatments to regrow hair. These scalp injections use concentrated platelets and plasma from the patient’s own blood to encourage hair regrowth.

A necklift procedure tightens loose neck skin and muscles while removing excess skin and fat. This results in a contoured and youthful-looking neck.

Neck liposuction involves insertion of a tool called a cannula to remove stubborn fat from the neck. This sculpts and contours the neck.

Pixel8 is a radiofrequency microneedling skin treatment. The RF energy and microneedles stimulate the body’s natural healing process, encouraging creation of new collagen and elastin protein. This helps skin become tighter and reduces issues like stretch marks, acne scars, and oversized pores.

We perform a number of procedures designed specifically for our male patients. These include the “masculine” Yummy Lift, male upper blepharoplasty, male hair restoration, and male Botox.

ProNox is a patient-controlled form of analgesia that allows patients to feel more comfortable during certain treatments. It reduces pain and anxiety and is very simple to operate.

The Yummy Lift is a facelift technique developed by Dr. Yamamoto to provide impressive results. This unique procedure creates long-lasting facial rejuvenation.

A Yummy Lift for Men, or “masculine” Yummy Lift, is a facelift technique created to emphasize masculine facial features. It addresses a sagging jawline and neckline for a more youthful and defined look.

After rejuvenating your face, don’t let your hands give you away! We don’t always think about the back of our hands, but like your face, they are always out in public. We want your hands to match your youthful, refreshed face.

Kristen Sakelaris, our experienced esthetician, performs a number of services to renew the skin. These include skin-resurfacing peels, Dermaglow microdermabrasion, and Dermaglow LED light therapy.
