Individuals who are 45 or older tend to show moderate to severe signs of facial aging, including deep facial wrinkles, lines, nasolabial folds and skin laxity. As the skin continues to lose its elasticity, volume loss leads to jowling and gives the face a tired appearance. Although facial injectables can fill in some of the wrinkles and lines, for men and women over the age of 45, a more permanent treatment is required to look refreshed and youthful. Dr. Piro offers a range of facial plastic surgery procedures to address each patient's unique aesthetic concerns, including facelift surgery, eyelid lift surgery, brow lift and neck lift. Multiple procedures can be performed at the same time for best results. Facial plastic surgery delivers permanent results, often making patients look 10 years younger than they really are. By lifting the facial features, eliminating sagging facial skin and tightening it to eliminate wrinkles, Dr. Piro helps aging patients achieve optimal results so that they can age feeling beautiful.

Breast lift surgery is a common procedure for women over the age of 45. A breast lift repositions the breasts to a higher position on the chest, thereby creating more youthful-looking, attractive cleavage. For women who have lost breast volume due to pregnancy, weight loss or aging, Dr. Piro can combine breast lift surgery with breast augmentation. By having implants placed, patients can enjoy restored breast volume and achieve a beautiful, proportional bustline. Women who already have breast implants may wish to undergo breast augmentation revision surgery to either replace their current implants, change the size of the breasts or have them removed. Dr. Piro can help each prospective breast enhancement surgery candidate select the best treatment option for them.
