This procedure involves tightening of the facial and neck skin as well as removal of excess fat deposits. This procedure may be performed in conjunction with other facial cosmetic procedures to optimize the aesthetic outcome. Small incisions are made just inside the hairline, along the contour in front of the ear, and extending under the earlobe to the backside of the ear and lower scalp.

These can be added to any facelift procedure, making for a single recovery. Traditional neck lift - A traditional neck lift incision originates below the sideburn area and continues down below the ear, terminating in the hair at the back of the scalp. The skin is pulled away and the fat is usually re-sculpted or redistributed, particularly from the jowls. Usually the platysma muscle (which runs from the upper parts of the pectoral and deltoid muscles all the way up onto the jaw) is tightened.

While this has the benefit of enabling easy, efficient movement, it also contributes to our eyes being the first area on our face to show signs of aging. Of course, it doesn't help that our eyes are continually exposed to the sun and the elements. Couple that with our natural decline in collagen production and you have the perfect recipe for sagging eyelids, puffy under eye skin, and an appearance that can be years older than your actual age.

The premise of this procedure is bringing the ears closer to the head. This procedure is commonly performed but is not limited to children.

Some of these, such as breast augmentation and breast lifts, are typically cosmetic choices to increase the size, shape, and profile of your breasts (augmentation) or to return the breasts to a higher position on the chest after sagging caused by natural aging and/or pregnancy and breastfeeding (breast lift). Other breast surgeries are geared toward improving the patient's quality of life.

Dr. Lin performs breast augmentation with either saline or silicone implants. There is a great deal of giving and take between surgeon and patient as there are many decisions to make: implant type, implant size (measured in CCs of filled volume), implant shape (round or teardrop), incision location (around the areola, in the breast crease, or in the armpit), and implant placement (atop or beneath the pectoral muscle).
