Facelift, also referred to as rhytidectomy, is a procedure to improve sagging facial skin, jowls and loose neck skin. The need for this procedure occurs as we age. Our skin loses it’s natural elasticity, the muscles begin to droop and the fatty tissue in our face and neck decrease in volume. This causes the skin to fit more loosely and creates more visible lines and wrinkles. This is an excellent procedure for a man or woman looking to restore a more youthful and fresh appearance to their face and neck while reducing the most visible signs of aging. We accomplish this by removing excess fat, tightening muscles and re-draping the skin.

A brow lift, also know as a forehead lift, minimizes the creases that develop across the forehead, or those that occur high on the bridge of the nose; improves what are commonly referred to as frown lines; and repositions a low or sagging brow. Brow lift surgery may be performed through multiple limited incisions in the hairline or through a single incision. Brow elevation may be accomplished with the use of permanent sutures and/or surgical screws.

Blepharoplasty (blef’ah-ro-plas”te), also known as eyelid surgery, is a procedure performed on the upper and/or lower eyelids to remove excess skin and fat. Our goal is to give your face a more alert, youthful appearance by correcting drooping eyelids (upper lid blepharoplasty) and puffy bags below the eyes (lower lid blepharoplasty).
Our eyes are our “windows to the world” and show expression more than any other part of our anatomy. Changes in the structures surrounding our eyes may falsely convey impressions of our feelings. For example, lower lid puffiness may indicate recent crying or sadness; overdeveloped fat pads in the upper lids may indicate fatigue or deep sagging eyebrows can indicate a great burden.

If protruding or disﬁgured ears bother you or your child, ear surgery — also known as otoplasty—can improve the shape, position or proportion of the ear. It can correct a defect in the ear structure that is present at birth, that becomes apparent with development or it can treat misshapen ears caused by injury.

“I am a 68 year old woman who suffered from shoulder and neck pain for over 30 years. I had always been afraid of getting a breast reduction due to fear of strong pain meds and the recovery time. I finally went to Dr. Hess who assured me I would be able to handle any discomfort with Tylenol. And, that worked great because the pain wasn't anywhere near as bad as I thought it would be. Tylenol for 3 days and that was it. I am a very active horseback rider and Dr. Hess understood how important it was to me to have small breasts, not only to relieve neck/shoulder pain, but to make it easier to ride my horses a lot of miles. The surgery was a breeze and I was back on my horses 12 days post-op. Shoulder and neck pain is virtually gone! I am thrilled to have gone from an F cup to a B. I highly recommend Dr. Hess for this procedure as he was very caring and concerned about giving me what "I" wanted.”

I Don't Look Tired Anymore
“I originally went to Dr. Sandeen to have my marionette lines removed. I knew beforehand he probably would want to fix my neck too. He suggested I have my lower eyes done so I would look refreshed. I had all three done and I'm so glad I listened to him about my eyes. What a difference. I no longer look tired and my neck looks fabulous, as does the rest of my face. Dr. Sandeen answers your questions and explains the procedures perfectly. Follow up visits were on-time and informative about taking care of my incisions. Dr. Sandeen has a very nice sense of humor and his office staff is professional and pleasant.”
