The decision to undergo facial cosmetic surgery can bring about a range of emotions. Rejuvenating the facial appearance, whether it be through fuller cheeks, younger-looking eyes or a smooth, wrinkle-free complexion, can be an exciting prospect.

The eyes are the most important feature of facial expression. They help communicate mood, attention, and interest to those around us. Sagging of the tissues around the eyes and changes in volume to the eye socket can make a person appear older or more tired than they feel. Dr. Annunziata can perform blepharoplasty, or eyelid lift surgery, to improve the appearance of drooping upper eyelids, puffy lower eyelids or both for more vibrant, younger-looking eyes. Dr. Annunziata uses her considerable experience with this procedure to provide individualized, natural, safe, and long-lasting results in a low-stress, relaxed environment.
Sagging or drooping brows can make us appear angry, sad or tired. With brow lifting, forehead creases are smoothed and the brow line is moved to a higher position for a more youthful appearance. Brow lift is often an important component of blepharoplasty surgery, and Dr. Annunziata frequently combines the two in order to produce a more complete, natural rejuvenation of the eyes and surrounding tissue.
This procedure addresses sagging tissue and fat displacement in the cheek. Loss of volume in the midface area (between the bottom of the eyes and corner of the lips) can lead to wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth, with loss of definition in the cheek bones and hollowing around the eyes. Dr. Annunziata can rejuvenate the cheeks by restoring volume with injectables or other lifting procedures to add fullness to the area for a more youthful appearance.
Patients may know this procedure by other branding names (such as quicklift, lifestyle lift, and the like), but they all represent a variation of traditional facelift involving smaller incisions to remove excess, sagging skin and tighten the remaining skin. Face-lifting can improve a sagging jaw line, sharpen the neck line and refresh the overall facial appearance. Dr. Annunziata’s minimally invasive facelift technique provides a natural, more refreshed look with less downtime and fewer risks while reducing the telltale signs of a surgical or over-pulled look.
With fat transfer, Dr. Annunziata uses your own body’s fat cells from one body area to replace lost facial volume. She can restore fullness to the cheeks, brows, lips, jaw line, or the area underneath the eyes if these areas have become sunken or hollow over time.
Cosmetic injectables such as Restylane and Juvederm are used to plump lips that are naturally thin or that have lost volume over time. The result is fuller, more youthful looking lips.
