Plastic Surgery in Odessa, TX
As aesthetic medicine continues to develop, we're discovering new alternatives for re-sculpting the body. We're discovering ways to inhibit the effects of aging on the skin and muscular system. As a board-certified plastic surgeon, I provide a complete array of procedures to aid my patients look and feel better with both non-invasive and surgical procedures. My mission is to encourage change through behavior modification, nutritional guidance, and lifestyle improvement where possible; non-invasive medical procedures when appropriate; and surgical procedures when necessary.

We have found that these immediate and long-term problems can be significantly decreased if no incisions are made in the lower lid's muscle. My vertical face-lift removes many of the preoperative findings that in the past would have required eyelid surgery.
