Your face is your first impression to the world. You can’t hide from it. If you are unhappy with your facial appearance, it can be crippling for your confidence, your social life and your ability to move through the world with grace.
As a certified plastic surgeon, all options are available to Dr. Shawn: Botox, filler, blepharoplasty (eyelid lift), facelift, rhinoplasty (nose surgery), neck liposuction, laser resurfacing and more. The ability to skillfully perform — and when appropriate, combine — these methods gives Dr. Shawn a distinct advantage in perfecting a healthy, youthful facial appearance.
More often than not, patients are concerned with flaws in only a single aspect of their face — forehead wrinkles, droopy eyelids, flappy neck, etc. The concept of “Facial Age Harmony” is a key component of Dr. Shawn’s approach to facial rejuvenation. All facial features are complex and unique, and changing one area may result in changes in others. Dr. Shawn will blueprint methods to improve the area of concern and to best address the related features to bring forth your most beautiful reflection.
“Often, patients ask about raising their eyebrows with Botox. I explain in detail the underlying complex, muscular components of their forehead. I’m very detailed in my evaluation of each patient. As every individual has a unique eyelid, eyebrow and forehead, these features must be taken into consideration before just injecting a bunch of botox!
Explaining what I can and cannot do with an injection (and if additional procedures may be needed) is just a part of our conversation. That’s the power of having a number of non-surgical and plastic surgical options at hand — to effect the best aesthetic change for my patients.”
