It really is not up to the patient’s preferences at all if they have a neck lift alone. It’s really dictated by anatomy and needs. Maybe better to say something like, “The neck can also show signs of aging by developing creases and sagging skin. A neck lift can be performed on its own or in combination with a facelift, depending on your individual needs.

As we age, the skin and soft tissue of the face can sag and fine lines and wrinkles become more noticeable. But just because these changes are part of the natural aging process we all experience doesn’t mean you have to accept them. Getting a facelift can completely transform a person’s appearance and make them look and feel years younger.

Rhinoplasty, also known as nose reshaping surgery, is another very popular plastic surgery procedure. Since the nose is the focal point of the face, changing the shape of the nose, even in subtle ways, can dramatically change and enhance your appearance.

Eyelids will naturally begin to droop as a person gets older. Blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, tightens the eyelids to give your eyes a brighter, more refreshed appearance. Whether surgery is done on the upper or lower eyelids, blepharoplasty is an effective procedure to help rejuvenate the eyes and make you look more vibrant.

Meet Dr. Gage

“I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dr. Gage! I first met him following a breast cancer diagnosis requiring a mastectomy where he managed all aspects of my reconstruction.  Not only did he do a fantastic job on my reconstruction, but he was always so kind and understanding and turned into a true bright spot in one of the darkest times of my life…”

– Chrissy P.

“Dr. Gage is a wonderful plastic surgeon and a great caring person. Dr. Gage did my reconstruction after my breast cancer mastectomy. The reconstruction surgery also involved a ‘lift’ on my other breast to obtain a symmetrical appearance of both breasts. This process does take many visits but this gave us the chance to really get to know Dr. Gage and his staff… We give them all an A+!”

– Doluke1

“I can’t say enough wonderful things about Dr. Gage. He was so compassionate and encouraging to me as I had breast reconstruction after a double mastectomy as part of my cancer treatment. Very thorough and spent the time to answer any questions or concerns I had.”
