    A petit lift or mini-lift is done to improve the contour and appearance of the jaw and neck. A mini lift is get rid of jowls and tighten up what is commonly known as “turkey neck.”  It is less intrusive than a full facelift is a perfect alternative for women in their 40’s-50’s who want to retain a more youthful profile.

    A mini-lift may be bundled with neck liposuction to remove fatty tissue under the chin. After the procedure, your profile is sculpted and your skin taunt, without looking tight. (See Neck Liposuction below.)


    The purpose of a facelift is to restore a more youthful appearance to the face by tightening skin and repositioning fat or underlying tissue. An incision is made at in the hairline at the temple which circles around the ear, ending in the lower scalp.

    The doctor will sculpt the face, adding and removing excess skin and fatty tissue as needed. The incisions are closed, and the skin is tightened over the new contours.

    A brow lift is very simple procedure that delivers high impact results. The procedure creates an even natural arc to your eyes brows, gets rid of that annoying frown line between your eyes and smooths out your brow.

    Dr. Chasan developed a technique specifically for this procedure, using tiny wires to access and elevate tissue for the brows. The four small incisions are hidden in the hairline (virtually invisible when healed) are used to lift the skin and suture it.

    Neck Liposuction

    Genetics are often the underlying cause of a double chin. Though weight can certainly play a part, there’s no diet or exercise that will target the fat cells underneath your chin. The ideal candidate are younger women who still maintain their skin elasticity.

    The procedure is simple enough to be performed using local anesthesia and supplemental sedatives as requested. A small incision is made behind the ear and a slender tube (called a cannula) is used to suction out the fat.

    For older patients with less skin elasticity, it might be necessary to combine the procedure with a mini-lift to tighten the skin around the newly sculpted profile. (See Petit Lift above.)

    Eyelid Surgery

    The skin around the eyes is extremely delicate. As we age, eyelids tend to sag or droop and fat deposits form bags along the lower lid. Even the most energetic person ends up looking tired and worn down.

    Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty is the medical term) is a cosmetic solution that can resolve the problems. Dr. Chasan performs both upper and lower lid surgeries that let you present a more youthful and refreshed face to the world.

    An incision is made along the lid that allows the doctor to separate the skin from the underlying tissue. Then he can remove the excess skin and any fatty tissue that may be causing it to droop. (If both lids are being corrected, the upper lid is typically done first.)

    For the lower lid, the doctor will determine the best place for the incision – either along the lower lid or the eyelash line. Then he will remove any fatty tissue and close the incision. There will little or no visible scarring.

    Lip Lift

    A lip lift is a surgical procedure that pulls the lip up, creating the impression of fullness and a more pronounced cupid bow. Dr. Chasan is one of the leading providers of this technique which adds volume to thinner lips and allows for a natural glimpse of the upper teeth.

    The doctor removes a small section of skin directly beneath the nose (called a sub nasal incision) and often referred to as bullhorn lip lift because the shape is reminiscent of the horns on a steer.

    The doctor is then able to pull the skin up to cover the incised area, which automatically lifts the lip and shortens the philtrum (the space between the lip and nose.) A thin lip becomes plumped and the cupid bow becomes more defined. Dr. Chasan has developed his own modifications of this technique to make it even better.

    A lip lift will permanently enhance the shape of your mouth with a bee-stung look to your lip.


    Dr. Chasan’s surgical facility was designed as a center of excellence equipped with a surgical nurse and four board-certified anesthesiologists. These nurses are all experienced plastic surgery nurses with over 10 years each with Dr. Chasan.


    Ear Surgery or otoplasty is a cosmetic procedure that corrects protruding ears. Ears that are too large or stick out too much can be source of embarrassment and even bullying. (Yes, Dr. Chasan will treat younger patients.) The ears frame your face, when the symmetry is off it can damage self-esteem and increase self-consciousness.

    Otoplasty is a surgical procedure to reshape the ear. The doctor makes an incision in the crease behind the ear and removes excess skin and cartilage to reduce the size and modify the shape. The ears are then “pinned” closer to the head using the excess skin or stitches.

    Patients see a significant change in the symmetry of their face, the size and position of their ears once the healing process is complete.
